1.2 million? Hmmm, do scientific papers from global warming activists disclose the government money they get to research their findings?

The scientific papers I have read and written all have an acknowledgement section that list people who have helped and funding sources. The grants usually have a grant number which is also listed in the acknowledgements and can often be looked up at the agency or organization website. I have never had a grant from the government, but I have been part of several research teams that applied for NSF grants.

Not disclosing the sources of your funding is deceptive and unethical and calls into question the integrety of your research. Dr. Soon's failure to disclose the source of his funding demonstrates a conflict of interest and shows that his research was blatently fraudulent.

Simple Proof of Man-Made Global Warming
I ran across this on the Skeptoid website.

The Simple Proof of Man-Made Global Warming

It provides a very nice description of measurements and observations that show how the sources of carbon in the atmosphere are determined.

quote:
I'm not going to mention climate models, politics, predictions, economics, or how many scientists agree or disagree — any of the topics on which there is debate. I'm only going to share a few of the most solid basics, the results of absolute measurements, over which there is no debate. These are the things nobody disagrees with, but so few people understand. Despite its contentious topic, this episode is intended to be — and should be — completely non-controversial.

The article also describes how measurements using spectrometry show that the greenhouse gases: CO2, methane, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and ozone are the primary sources of heat in the atmosphere and what percentage of each is responsible.

quote:
Water vapor, which is the most prominent, defines the basic shape of the greenhouse spectrum. Most of the infrared radiation that escapes the Earth goes through a window left open by water vapor, which we call the infrared window.

quote:
Spectroscopy is hard science. We don't have to model or predict. Simply by pointing our instruments at the sky, we can, right now, directly observe and identify the greenhouse gases, and measure exactly how much radiative energy the atmosphere is absorbing and keeping here on Earth. This direct, non-ambiguous spectroscopic reading is the "smoking gun" that proves the excess heat energy being trapped in our atmosphere is due to CO2. That excess CO2 is produced by humans burning fossil fuels.

I couldn't see any obvious flaws in this article and it has a short list of references at the end.

There is an uncanny resemblance to Trump in that image.

Re: Anyone still doubt climate change?
The biggest climate change could be to Europe if Greenland's melting glaciers disrupt the Gulf Stream that keeps Europe's climate moderate.

The biggest changes occurring right now appear to be warming in some arctic regions of 20-30 degrees. That warming is leading to the thawing of tundra and the release of massive amounts of methane, a more effective greenhouse gas than CO2.

An interesting consequence of this warming period is sea level rise from expansion of warmer water and from melting glaciers. We are living through a period of ocean transgression and can observe the patterns of erosion and deposition around the continents.

Re: A denier denies
Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - Australia would never see snow again...
Prediction was false

Prove it.

Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - That large parts of Australia would be underwater...
Prediction was false

Prove it.

Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - That Australia's temperature would rise considerably...
Prediction was false

Prove it.

Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - That the world would end...
Prediction was false

Prove it.

Meanwhile, the other experts have predicted that a cool period would begin last year - Australia has just had its coldest summer in living memory, snow fell in Mexico, Egypt, and other unusual parts of the world.
Prediction was true

So what?

No wonder the mainstream refuses to debate such people...

You just made all this bullshit up.
