APS and the Global Warming Scam

Another absorbing discussion to be had is at Judith Curry's blog, Climate Etc. She highlights and discusses remarks uttered by EPA head Scott Pruitt, and the media kerfuffle following it; the discussion is now at 385 comments ...

Scott Pruitt’s statement on climate change

Quote

[...]

What Scott Pruitt actually said

Listen to what Scott Pruitt actually said on CNBC and then compare it to the portrayal in the media.  Here is the key text:

I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.  But we don’t know that yet.  We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis.

Bye, Scott. Thank you. Bye bye big spender. I think I want to use some aspects of Pruitt to round out a character in Weather War. Another perhaps-justified paranoid taken down by Project Jupiter, otherwise known as Them.

My lasting impression of Pruitt is that he felt a little bit touched by God, from my point of view a bad touch -- and that he did what he was asked to do in rebalancing the EPA mission and imposing a friendlier-to-industrial-interests mandate.  I contrast a nickle-and-dime miser of his own monies with a lavish spender of taxpayer funds. He also seemed to lose the trail on that part of the swamp-levee where favours end and corruption begins.

The policies of Trump's EPA will be nudged not or only negligibly from their trajectory.  "Scott Pruit ate my homework" alarmists will be celebrating, however.

-- here is squawking from the usual suspects pool. I kinda see what he is getting at, the gawd-awful gawdliness ...

The full letter of departure is at Foxnews ... 

"Attacks!"

There is an old joke we used to tell in the orchestra pit when I was still an orchestra musician and we were doing an opera. (This is from my Brazil days.)

There was a tenor on stage who was receiving boos and hisses. When they started throwing tomatoes, he stopped. He said to the audience, "OK. I get it. I'm leaving now. But here comes the fat lady."

But here's the rub:  For alarmist blame-humans scenarios to look viable, it has to be the case that atmospheric CO2 concentration is the primary driver of global temperatures, and the longer the hiatus continued, the less viable this requirement became.  So what the alarmists started doing as their main tactic was to try to get rid of the hiatus with data maneuvering and verbal tricks.

The Sun is the primary driver of global temperatures.  CO2, water vapor  and other trace "greenhouse"  gases modulate (in some cases)  or amplify (in other cases) the Sun's effect on the atmosphere.  The other modulator of the Sun's effects are the seas and oceans. Water has a very high heat capacity which means it can absorb a lot of heat with only small temperature increases.

I never did get those lyrics, "Smoke on the water . . . " We have the Chesapeake on one side and the Atlantic on the other, with the Delaware Bay between us and Jersey. Ahhh.

Someone made fun of James Delingpole, columnist for the UK tabloid the Sun:

Right now we know the planet is warming.  That is not in dispute.  We must know the nature of the warming

[..] And it isn't true that it isn't in dispute that the planet is warming.  The data records are so messed up, impossible to be sure.

Weather Porn!
