Don’t Talk Emissions – Talk Beer

The Wall Street Journal runs one of their well written fact filled commentaries entitled, The Real Cost of Tackling Climate Change. This is exactly the type of accurate but meaningless analysis that is going to end up handing Wall Street over to anti-capitalist government oversight. It is “nice” to be well intentioned but it's important to be effective.

This is the sentence that pisses me off. “Begin with the current inventory of carbon dioxide emissions – CO2 being the principal greenhouse gas generated almost entirely by energy use”. Why? Because it accepts the premise that CO2 actually is a “principal greenhouse gas”. Until we understand and make the public aware that carbon dioxide is harmless to the environment, we are trapped into playing with the opponent’s language and to their advantage.

Every response to environmentalist rhetoric needs to demand an explanation of how CO2 can do what they claim. How does CO2 heat the air? By trapping energy? What energy? For how long? How come CO2 doesn’t trap energy in the rest of the world? For example beer. Beer is extremely carbonated and yet even when surrounded by solid matter on all sides, it still gets cold in a refrigerator. Why doesn’t CO2 stop beer from getting cold if CO2 “traps” heat? Isn’t outer space colder than an ice box?

Tropical Troposphere Not Warming

Authentic science uses computers to analyze observational data. It’s the meticulous adherence to real world measurements that makes science truthful and useful. Luboš Motl picks up on a story Steve McIntyre posts about the lack of observed warming in the upper atmosphere.

Lubos sums the graph up this way: The three complicated colorful lines are the temperature data for the tropical troposphere - where the warming should be most rapid - according to RSS MSU, UAH MSU, and CRU: they seem to almost fully agree with each other. In terms of words, there has been no warming over there since 1980.

MSU: The Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) is a microwave radiometer that flies aboard NOAA's polar orbiting weather satellites. Each day, the MSU observes approximately 80% of the earth's surface, with the orbit shifting slightly each day so that 100% coverage is achieved over a three to four day period. … The air temperature computed directly from channel 2 is representative of the middle-to-upper troposphere (centered about 7 km above the surface).

RSS and UAH are separate research groups using NOAA’s MSU data. The Climatic Research Unit (CRU) data is from a British research group of true believers that nothing other than human influence explains the vagaries in our present limited snippet in the long history of our dynamic gas bubble. On a side note: Madison, Wisconsin receives trace amounts of snowfall this afternoon, adding to our record setting snowfall total for 2007-08.

Green Day Spring Day

Yesterday, NOAA announces they are finishing updating America’s high-tech climate monitoring stations that are improving the historical climatology network. The change is to insure “very high accuracy” in data collection, and corrects misplacement of older monitors in artificially heated areas such as asphalt parking lots in urban centers. Today, the Isthmus Green Day eco-celebration features a speaker on global warming.

Lola and I decide to take a slow drive on back roads down to Oregon, WI, and then a tour through the UW Arboretum before heading home. There is a great deal of melt water everywhere which is consistent with the record snowfall of the preceding winter. Other than that the ecosystem looks pretty normal for this point of the year. I simply don’t see a planet in the need of human salvation and I am reminded of the following thoughts.

Lord Monckton’s address to the Cambridge Union Society: AL GORE says, “I believe this is a moral issue.” So it is. To “announce disasters” or “scary scenarios” or “over-represent factual presentations” in place of adherence to the scientific truth – that is a moral issue.

To let politicians insert data into official scientific documents; to alter those documents so as to contradict scientific findings; to manipulate decimal points so as to engender false headlines by exaggerating tenfold – those are moral issues.

To exaggerate by 2000% not only the atmospheric lifetime of a trace gas but also the effect of that gas on temperature; to reduce the magnitude of its predicted influence on temperature without reducing the predicted temperature itself – those are moral issues.

To claim scientific unanimity where none exists; to assert that catastrophe is likely when most scientists do not; to exalt theoretical computer models over real-world observations; to misstate the conclusions of scientific papers or the meaning of observed data; to overstate the likely future course of climatic phenomena by several orders of magnitude – those are moral issues.

To reverse the sequence of events in the early climate; to repeat that reversal in a propaganda book intended to infect the minds of children; to persist in false denial that past temperatures exceeded today’s; to state that climate events that have not occurred have occurred; to ascribe these non-events as well as specific extreme-weather events unjustifiably to humankind – those are moral issues.

To propose solutions to the non-problem of climate change that would cost many times more than the problem itself, if there were one; to advocate measures to mitigate fancifully-imagined future climatic changes when adaptation would cost far less and achieve far more; to ignore the real problems of resource depletion, energy security, bad Third World government and fatal diseases that kill millions – those are moral issues.

I hope the Isthmus leadership; Marc Eisen, Bill Lueders, V.O and the rest, believe we all want clean air, clean water and vibrant ecosystems. What is unacceptable, however, is scientific fraud advancing political policies that are expensive and unnecessary at best, and ineffective and counterproductive at worst. It is time to stop perpetuating the dangerous man-made global warming lie.

Our Industrial Famine Culture

I thought the impetus for killing the living to burn for energy was based on the idea that burning rocks doesn’t turn carbon directly back into rocks. I was also under the impression that the MANDATE to use corn derived ethanol was a government dictate. I guess there are other interpretations of the reasons food prices are rising.

John Nichols on The World Food Crisis: The current global food system, which was designed by US-based agribusiness conglomerates like Cargill, Monsanto and ADM and forced into place by the US government and its allies at the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization, has planted the seeds of disaster by pressuring farmers here and abroad to produce cash crops for export and alternative fuels rather than grow healthy food for local consumption and regional stability.

“as the Oakland Institute's Anuradha Mittal observes, that it is time to "stop worshiping the golden calf of the so-called free market and embrace, instead, the principle [that] every country and every people have a right to food that is affordable." As Mittal says, "When the market deprives them of this, it is the market that has to give."

I also did not realize that genetically modified seeds “reduce food production”. If only we could return to the pre-industrial age when all food was locally produced by eco-friendly happy peasants, then hunger would be abolished. Is it true the word famine does not even exist in aboriginal languages?

Metamorphosis with Attitude

The Isthmus asks a question about the leap of faith Madison’s very old progressive paper is taking. The end of an era: Panicked newspapers seek salvation. Will the Cap Times find it on the web? Written with the empathy of a fellow comrade in the struggle, Marc Eisen writes:

Newspapers won't die off as quickly as slide rules did when calculators were introduced, but the changes under way are so epochal you'd be foolish to believe anyone who speaks confidently of what publishing will be like in 10 years.

The switch from paper to pixels to deliver the news represents far more than a change in transmission. The definition of news itself changes online. This is big stuff, truly a shift in the paradigm.

As the advent of bloggers, listservs and reader comments attest, online news is "less of a lecture, more of a conversation," as media analyst Jay Rosen has put it. This is hard for old-school journalists to accept. They're used to hiding behind either the fig leaf of "objective" reporting or the omniscience of magazine-style journalism. Now stories are picked apart online by citizen commenters and bloggers.

Marc Eisen is exactly right. As long as government allows the public freedom to access and question information, the conversation will push towards the truth. So let’s take a quick look at the first topic the electronic metamorphosis of the Capital Times brings up. Actually, it's not a call for reasoned debate.

Call Congress on climate change: Call the Capitol switchboard today at 202-224-3121 and leave a message for members of the Wisconsin delegation, telling them that their constituents want:
* A moratorium on new coal-burning plants.
* Renewable energy.
* Carbon-neutral buildings.
* Protection for the poor and middle class in the new green economy.

Now it strikes me as strange that the first thing the Capital Times wants as they transform from paper to electricity is a moratorium on coal-burning electricity generating plants. Why call for restrictions on the essential energy we are all depend upon? We all know the reason is because “progressive thinkers” believe carbon dioxide emissions from burning coal is "bad" for our photosynthesis dependent environment. This is exactly why the conversation needs to be brought back to these questions – is there a limit to the CO2 greenhouse effect and when that limit is reached, what exactly is dangerous in a healthy, warm and growing world?

Dr. Jonathan Foley

The fact the University of Wisconsin pays Dr. Jonathan Foley as a Professor says a great deal about academic science. The Capital Times features his Earth Day report to the State of Wisconsin Natural Resources Board. This is the report of a person well versed in computer modeling. Please, read the whole thing but focus on these specific assertions.

Climate 'out of balance,': A long-term rise of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide — mainly due to the burning of coal, oil and natural gas — warmed the Earth, he said. … Those heat-trapping gases multiplied what is a natural greenhouse effect, in which the sun heats the Earth and the Earth in turn gives off radiation in infrared waves. Those waves go into the atmosphere, which absorbs some of that heat and radiates it back down to Earth. … "The Earth is 30 degrees warmer than it would be without that natural greenhouse effect. Without it, life would never have evolved," Foley said. But humans made the greenhouse a little thicker by burning fossil fuels.

First, let’s agree on the fact that the greenhouse effect is necessary for life on Earth. Second, let’s agree that the greenhouse effect is absorption of infrared radiation by a few specific types of atmospheric molecules. The fallacy in everything Dr. Foley asserts after these two points is attributing to carbon dioxide a significant and additive contribution to atmospheric absorption of infrared radiation.

It is well established that CO2 has limited IR absorption frequencies, and if saturation of these absorption bands are demonstrable from satellite data, it is proof that additional CO2 molecules are non-contributory. In other words, once saturation is achieved, as it is in the present 300 ppm range, it is impossible for additional molecules of carbon dioxide to contribute to additional warming.

The question Dr. Foley needs to answer is this: Is there a limit to the carbon dioxide greenhouse effect, and if so, then what is that limit? I doubt any UW Professor will answer that more CO2 always means more warming, without end.

Earth Day 2008

This is the truth that destroys the political hijacking of Gaylord Nelson’s legacy to America.

Carbon dioxide absorbs infrared radiation (IR) in only three narrow bands of frequencies, which correspond to wavelengths of 2.7, 4.3 and 15 micrometers (µm), respectively. The percentage absorption of all three lines combined can be very generously estimated at about 8% of the whole IR spectrum, which means that 92% of the "heat" passes right through without being absorbed by CO2. If the entire atmosphere were composed of nothing but CO2, i.e., was pure CO2 and nothing else, it would still only be able to absorb no more than 8% of the heat radiating from the earth.

CO2 is currently working at 100% capacity, and neither adding nor subtracting from current levels will change the present temperatures. It is harmless to the environment.

Until this truth is embraced by our leadership the unjustified fears of our carbon footprint, the anti-human drive against cheap and abundant energy and the elitist desire to rule lesser individuals will not be driven from American society. Gaylord Nelson would have understood the slogan: Speak Truth to Power. It is time to do just that.

Stop the CO2 Scare

“There is nothing wrong with a fourth grade understanding of science if you are a fourth grader” - Alan Caruba. The big lie of dangerous man-made global warming needs to be stopped, because our politicians are taking all of us in policy directions that will harm humans and harm the environment. Hard questions about the science behind the scare tactics need to be a central focus of the coming elections.

Stop the CO2 scare, before it's too late: The report - Nature Not Human Activity Rules the Climate - presents a devastating analysis of the IPCC's case. Intended for a lay audience and signed by scientists from 15 countries, it takes all the key points of the IPCC's "consensus" case and tears them expertly apart, showing how the Intergovernmental Panel has either exaggerated, distorted or suppressed the evidence available to it, or has imputed much greater certainty to its findings than is justified by the data.

At just the moment when, thanks to the overwhelming pressure generated by the IPCC, the world's politicians, led by the EU, are committing us to spending untold trillions of pounds, dollars and euros on measures to "mitigate" the claimed effects of man-made warming, here is a galaxy of experts producing hard evidence that - if the problem exists at all - the official explanation for it is oriented in wholly the wrong direction.

Nature Not Human Activity Rules the Climate: In conclusion, this NIPCC report falsifies the principal IPCC conclusion that the reported warming (since 1979) is very likely caused by the human emission of greenhouse gases. In other words, increasing carbon dioxide is not responsible for current warming. Policies adopted and called for in the name of ‘fighting global warming’ are unnecessary. It is regrettable that the public debate over climate change, fueled by the errors and exaggerations contained in the reports of the IPCC, has strayed so far from scientific truth. It is an embarrassment to science that hype has replaced reason in the global debate over so important an issue.

Basic CO2 Physics

Next, lets talk about a scientific process called Atomic Absorption Spectrometry. It is a method by which we can measure precisely which wavelengths of radiation a particular gas is capable of absorbing.

In our highly simplified drawing above, a radiation source is beamed through a glass container containing a gas sample. As the radiation passes through, a portion of it is absorbed at particular narrow bandwidths (often more than one ) so the end result are some "missing" sections of the whole spectrum coming from the source, which show up as dark lines. They're missing because they were absorbed by the sample in the chamber. They are called absorption lines, or absorption spectra, and when analyzed by a knowledgeable person, can tell one what the gas or gas mixture is in the sample chamber based on a catalog of known spectra. It's a wonderful tool for analyzing unknown gas samples.

Let's look at a real result, below - the absorption spectrum for pure carbon dioxide plus an amount of water vapor equal to that in our current atmosphere as the sample and infrared radiation from a black body spectrum as the source. This is part of the so-called "greenhouse effect"

As we can see above, carbon dioxide absorbs infrared radiation (IR) in only three narrow bands of frequencies, which correspond to wavelengths of 2.7, 4.3 and 15 micrometers (µm), respectively. The percentage absorption of all three lines combined can be very generously estimated at about 8% of the whole IR spectrum, which means that 92% of the "heat" passes right through without being absorbed by CO2. In reality, the two smaller peaks don't account for much, since they lie in an energy range that is much smaller than the where the 15 micron peak sits - so 4% or 5% might be closer to reality. If the entire atmosphere were composed of nothing but CO2, i.e., was pure CO2 and nothing else, it would still only be able to absorb no more than 8% of the heat radiating from the earth.

For those of us who believe that environmentalism is faith based rather than fact based, the fact the movement is codifying The Six Sins of Greenwashing supports our view. Greenwashing is when corporations go eco-friendly in their sales claims in an attempt to make profits. Treehugger gives the quick summary.

1. Sin of the Hidden Trade-Off: e.g. “Energy-efficient” electronics that contain hazardous materials. 998 products or 57% of all environmental claims committed this Sin.

2. Sin of No Proof: e.g. Shampoos claiming to be “certified organic,” but with no verifiable certification. 454 products and 26% of environmental claims committed this Sin.

3. Sin of Vagueness: e.g. Products claiming to be 100% natural when many naturally-occurring substances are hazardous, like arsenic and formaldehyde. Seen in 196 products or 11% of environmental claims.

4. Sin of Irrelevance: e.g. Products claiming to be CFC-free, even though CFCs were banned 20 years ago. This Sin was seen in 78 products and 4% of environmental claims.

5. Sin of Fibbing: e.g. Products falsely claiming to be certified by an internationally recognized environmental standard like EcoLogo, Energy Star or Green Seal. Found in 10 products or less than 1% of environmental claims.

6. Sin of Lesser of Two Evils: e.g. Organic cigarettes or “environmentally friendly” pesticides, This occurred in 17 products or 1% of environmental claims.

I especially like the original papers discussion about the SIN OF VAGUENESS:

There are some recurring themes within these vague claims. For example:
♦ “Chemical-free”. In fact, nothing is free of chemicals. Water is a chemical. All plants, animals, and humans are made of chemicals as are all of our products.
♦ “Non-toxic”. Everything is toxic in sufficient dosage. Water, oxygen, and salt are all potentially hazardous.
♦ “All Natural”. Arsenic is natural. So are uranium, mercury, and formaldehyde. All are poisonous.
♦ “Green”, “Environmentally friendly”, and “Eco-conscious” (to name just a few) which are utterly meaningless without elaboration.

My favorite, however, is the SIN OF NO PROOF. By this standard, the whole dangerous manmade global warming by carbon dioxide idea is sinful. Unless you believe that computer programming of anecdotal observations constitutes proof.

Disclosure: I believe CO2 is innocent of any and all claims of environmental endangerment. As noted above, all plants, animals and humans are made of chemicals and it all starts when photosynthesis bonds H2O and CO2 into larger molecules.

What If Climate Alarmists are Right?

This is a Chevrolet commercial currently running on television.

An adult is talking to little children saying: “Now if exhaust comes out of a gas engine, what comes out of a fuel cell engine”? (there is a pause while six year old children fidget silently confused) ... “H2O”.

I have a question for everyone, including Vicki McKenna, Ellen Foley, John Nichols, and Bill Lueders. Why would anyone believing humans are capable of creating unnatural shifts in the ambient near surface diurnal temperature range, advocate replacing emissions of the rare atmospheric molecule carbon dioxide and it’s limited radiative absorptive range, with emissions of the single most potent green house gas of all --- water vapor?

Media people, we have a great big University in the middle of our town and I’m sure your offices all have phone books and email. Because water vapor is responsible for 60-70% of the greenhouse gas effect on surface temperature moderation, and if it is bad for human activity to alter in any way the natural temperature moderation of our embedded in freezing cold space planet, then why would any caring person want to move society towards increasing water vapor emissions? The truth is out there media people --- the X Files tell us so.

HE SAID WHAT! ... thinking for a moment ... My reaction is along the lines of A.J.

The Strata Sphere: Well, it is time to grow up. Obama said America is bitter that government has not functioned. Well it has not functioned because of out of control partisanship, rancor and basically behavior that would not be tolerated in any other area of society. Lies about others, lies about what they will do for us, graft and corruption - it seems Americans have a right to be bitter with the low caliber and unprofessionalism that has permeated the offices of elected officials, the news media and the talking heads who create a living out of ringing the alarm bells.

I get that Obama reveals an intimate familiarity with the contemptible stereotypes of the day. This is not the first time and he is absolutely not the only politician completely up to date on the political foundations of partisan driven hate. If anything, it’s just more evidence that a complete house cleaning is overdue.

Actually, A.J. is far more generous than me. I believe the clean out needs to go pretty far down into the rank and file of our public servants. There are days I understand why Chairman Mao believed the intellectuals require some slave labor time. I’m not an advocate of government mandated servitude but sending some people looking for honest work would do the rest of us a great deal of good.

Dale Watson Nights

Lola and I first come across Dale Watson on a wonderful summer evening in the ancient sandstone basement of the old Fess Hotel. This is July of 1999. Since then we attend his shows at Tex Tubbs on Atwood Avenue and Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon in Austin, Texas. That and every show he has played at the Club Tavern in Middleton since the turn of the century. So last night when we are asked if we’ve seen Dale before, we honestly answer yes, about a dozen times.

I never saw Johnny Cash in person so I’m not wasting opportunities to observe the closest practitioner of that musical lineage. This is a common thought by many in the Club Tavern audience last evening. Now this is not to imply that he is a gifted mimic. Quite the contrary. Dale Watson is as authentically skilled as any of the historical predecessors.

YouTube pulls up 175 videos but most of them are fan postings from the various venues of the traveling road show. If you aren’t sleeping on the tour bus, it probably means some corporate sponsor is picking up the hotel bills. Every soul, it is said, has a price. Then, of course, there are the gigs like Oneida, where you don’t have to play marathon shows and the casino puts the crew up in style for three or four days.

After some thought, I decide not to post any videos because even the few with professional production fall short of capturing the total complexity of the live stage performances. Besides, Dale is producing a diverse and maturing body of work that is impossible to appropriately summarize with one, two or even three examples. If anyone is really interested, Strictly Discs on Monroe Street will be more than happy to get you started.

Living Small

The Isthmus runs a lead story about Madison residents living in really tiny houses. The piece ends with an almost textbook example of the Orwellian reasoning embraced as virtue by our environmentalist neighbors.

Living Small: Big, historically, has been considered good, and small inferior. …"That's no longer an appropriate way of looking at the world. We're reaching a point where people who build McMansions will be considered immoral."

I take this seriously because cultures change over time and money and power can completely alter public values. It has been twenty years, for example, since organized money set out on a deliberate strategy to stigmatize tobacco smoking to great success.

But that’s not my favorite part. That honor goes to a featured quote: “When you free yourself from your stuff, you actually can become freer”. There you have it. In poverty lies freedom. In the more common vernacular, freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose. If that comes off glib, it shouldn’t. The political discourse uses words like freedom with the assumption the public agrees on the meaning of the word. Clearly freedom means very different things to very different people.

This Madison reasoning is not hard to understand. Even 18 year old fledgling adults can learn the basics. If freedom from want is served by dependency on the government then advancing government dependency is advancing freedom. If wealth and resources are fixed sums and the population grows, then mathematics dictate that fairness requires each individual receives a smaller portion of the total. All that is left is to codify the meaning of happiness as accepting having what you have.

Let’s Kill Foreigners

In my apparently ongoing anger phase, I want to go on record that I despise the concept of “invasive species”. It is an unnatural concept. Nature does not have rules for who lives where. Nature is all about give life a go and congratulations to the survivors and their offspring. This whole “invasive species” idea is entirely dependent on the human desire for stagnant ecosystems – anything not present in 1491 SHOULD NOT be present in 2008! Besides, the whole premise is merely the smoke and mirrors covering the human desire to control everything.
DNR proposes stricter new rules to regulate invasive species: The rules being written by the DNR would create legal classifications of such invasive species, establish rules for sale and transportation of the non-native plants and animals, and prescribe fines and penalties for violating the law. … Two non-regulated categories — watch and non-restricted — would be set up for species that either are not currently in the state and for which there is little information or species that, though invasive, actually have beneficial impacts on the environment.
OK – check list of species not present in Wisconsin prior to 1492: Starlings. Humans of European descent. Horses. Humans of African heritage. Dandelions. Norway maple trees. Honeysuckle bushes and many, many, many more. In fact, the more you look at the issue, the more you realize nature doesn’t pay attention to political boundaries. Nature is actually pretty adamant about changing over time. Oh yeah, and humans of Mexican decent.

Come to think of it, if you choose some other arbitrary point of time, say 168 million years ago, almost none of the species residing in Wisconsin in 1491 were residing in Wisconsin back then. Furthermore, since nothing but perhaps some bacteria exist at the GPS coordinates of Lake Mendota during the last ice age, is it not true that virtually every living thing in Wisconsin today descends from pioneering, colonizing, new to the area, competing and thriving invaders? If living here doesn’t make you a native, then what does? These are good questions for the DNR as they kill off the stuff on your property before sending you the bill for services rendered.

The Abundant Examples of Badness

The political blogs are growing trite. I expect it is computer assisted perfection of the ancient school of ‘character flaw’ politics. Look, look, look, a mistake. Faux Pas! False, false, false false, false – proof, proof, proof. VIDEO! Inconsistent. Non Sequiter! Hypocrite! Racist. Collectivist. Criminal. Liar. Liar! LIAR!!! It’s all about seeking victory by riling up the emotions.

Re-traumatizing blacks to serve the Left: What the Left has done to black people in the last fifty years is a kind of emotional abuse -- a constant, obsessional reliving of the traumatic past. Fifty years after the Civil Rights Acts, Democrat politicians, professors and preachers are still intent on rubbing salt into those old, painful wounds. It has now become institutionalized. Reliving the past is a major reason for Black Studies Departments all over the country, just as Women's Studies are designed to perpetuate an everlasting cry of pain and rage about the fate of women throughout history. Those constant rehearsals of reasons for rage and resentment do not to help people; they just exploit their pain for political gain.

I am all for giving the Presidency to the Barack Hussein Obama leftists. Since none of the three major political factions are pursuing the politics of principled solutions, and since all of the three major political factions are committed to expanding government power, then it makes sense that those of us who cherish individual liberty should support the least experienced, least competent option. If we are heading towards disaster, then let us have a disaster that destroys the status quo so we can rebuild better.

April Fools

April Fool’s Day and the first morning of 2008 the chirping of birds awakes me from slumber. A pleasant reminder that nature proceeds with total indifference to the affairs of mankind. To everyone indoctrinated to “Save the Planet” – wake up, you are being played as fools. Oh by the way, the entire ecosystem is built from carbon dioxide. Exhale on that reality.
