BB, has it ever occurred to you that you could serve your god best by keeping your thoughts to yourself?

I'm serious. If your intent is to persuade the wayward heathens toward your god, you would have much better success by remaining silent.

But perhaps that is not your intent at all?

Obama admin quietly preparing pledge of deeper GHG emissions targets for U.N. talks
Lisa Friedman, E&E reporter
ClimateWire: Tuesday, February 11, 2014

The Obama administration is quietly working on new greenhouse gas emissions targets to deliver to the United Nations, even as it struggles to craft regulations that will enable the United States to meet its current carbon-cutting goals.

With Republicans striking out at President Obama's climate change agenda as part of an effort to unseat vulnerable Senate Democrats in November, the administration is hardly advertising its effort. But according to officials involved in the process, the treacherous political terrain has not stopped the administration from forging ahead with developing new emissions goals.

In at least three interagency meetings at the White House since September, administration sources said, officials have debated whether the new goals should extend to 2025 or 2030. They also have laid out the scientific and economic modeling that must be done in the coming months and discussed whether a new target should assume Congress will eventually enact climate legislation or whether the White House must continue to use existing authority under the Clean Air Act to squeeze out more emissions reductions. President Obama's new special adviser, John Podesta, is expected to have an overarching role in the process.

Sumner is such a light weight I tell you. You really have to wonder at his other claims of prowess...

blasting little dickie birds out of the sky, his record as a builder, a hanger on and groupie of the great Hatouni....

Jes sayin".... if your a fraud this late in life, chances are you always were!


Thats just run of the mill statistics

the deniers here will never be computer programmers
Computer programming is not for everyone. "I think it's reasonably specialized, and nobody really expects most people to have to do it. It's not like knowing how to read and write and do basic math."
since they fail at reading, writing, basic math
and logic, major fail at logic

Thanks for sharing your own weakmosauce logic.

It isn't weak, thats the essential point Sketch. Sumner is weak in math, so one can reasonably deduce he is incapable of statistical analysis and most certainly computer modelling. It is a physical impossibility so the deductive reasoning is not weak, it is strong.


He might be capable and strong in the capacity of squirting goo into all the woodworking defects he needs to hide before the client shows up, but quite simply that ability cannot be reasonably deduced as indication of strength in a highly technical field of science.

What exactly is your profession and experience anyway, and how does that help ( or hinder) you in your quest for the holly grail of proving incompetence and corruption in institutional science?

Come on Sketchy, stick your neck out a little. Hell, we have no way of corroborating anything you claim so go for it.....

Bruce seems like he's been up all night fuming at the mirror. You really should have your internal problems looked at by a professional, this group therapy here is not serving you well. Anyway, anything new anywhere along the front of the climate wars?

That is how you deduce everything Rick, by how it "seems" to you. When you have confidence in your own council there is no need for the hard and difficult work of deliberation of fact, just your intuitive gut instincts that leap instantly into your consciousness from the deep well of hard earned prejudice and self preening narcissism.

Thats cool you know, I mean everyone does it. Its just those who possess humility understand that quality judgement hinges on just a little bit more. Well actually a lot more but don't let that little fact rattle your nerves. You're grip on your caulking gun might get a little shaky if your confidence starts to slip.

Just keep yapping Bruce. Your giving a fine example of humility in your unfailing confidence in your own council to judge anyone with viewpoints contrary to your devine intuition of the rightness of the crumbling consensus.

Wow, Sketch, I completely overlooked that! Like, completely. Like.

The truly beautiful part though is that you're here. A lot. Fine use of bandwidth, you ask me.

On the other hand, if you were using sulphates to hold the temperature down to plus 1.8 degrees C, in a world where the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere would otherwise give you plus 4 degrees C, then the effect on tropical rainfall would be small. And that is a far likelier scenario, because we are most unlikely to resort to large-scale geo-engineering until we are right at the threshold (around plus 2 degrees C) of runaway warming.
