Links to (mostly) skepticism re Global Warming

Climate Epistemology.

That dire predictions about "Global Warming" are based on bad science
is argued strongly by Ari Sabouni --
who also wrote:

Despite much more volcanism and single meteors, releasing far more CO2 than the entire history of man, (18x more CO2 than today), we never had a run-away CO2+heating event that the models predict will happen. So either our historical record (and current observations) are wrong, or the models are wrong. You just put in them 7,000 ppm and see what happens to the temperature and they say we’d be like venus, not that we’d be like the ice planet of Hoth (which it sometimes more closely resembled). When the observations contradict your model, science says that your model is broken. Politics says you just spin it for the gullible rubes and keep selling it. The UN’s IPCC and the global warming alarmists keep doing the latter.
Feedback Futility: Leo Smith says computer modeling is far too simple to correctly predict climate, which has many variables and processes (some not yet discovered) and surely has negative feedback. The system is, in a technical sense, "chaotic" and almost certainly cannot be modeled successfully.
H2O amps it up, See? (Skeptical [?] Science) "Increased CO2 makes more water vapor, a greenhouse gas which amplifies warming." But, why does H2O not amplify itself? (I ask)
But, H2O amplification would have happened during the Medieval Warming,
if that warming was much more than today's warmings. Was it?

History of: "We must get rid of the Medieval Warm Period." (paraphrased)
What is wrong with computer modeling of climate. (Brief statement by Douglas Moreman)
If the world has not, since the last Ice Age, been as warm as it is now then how can we explain the 10,000 year old tree stumps that are north of the present Arctic-treeline?
Why, really, was the tree line north of where it is today? (Serge Payette, Claude Lavoie, 1994)
Water, not CO2. (Steve Goreham,2013) There is, effectively, no "Positive Feedback", no runaway warming.
Would scientists change Data to Fit some Theory ?
Methane is not relevant because it cannot make an effective contribution to greenhousing. (Tom Sheahen) This article gives a clear introduction to some spectral facts.
CO2 has made Earth 20+% greener. (Freeman Dyson) His introducer talks until 3:00 into this video.
and might, or might not, be having a worrisome effect on climate. He says that the modeling is bad.

Some new theories of climate.

Latest Global Lower Atmospheric Temperatures. (Roy Spencer, UAH)
Death of Heretics (Joanne Nova)

An "hiatus"
during which Temperature did not increase but CO2 did increase. So, the theory, lacking a mechanism to explain the hiatus, was shown to be "incomplete." A theory is not made complete by ad hoc excuses.
A NAS Synthesis Report (2006) says what "no one" objects to:
"There is sufficient evidence from tree rings, boreholes, retreating glaciers, and other "proxies" of past surface temperatures to say with a high level of confidence that the last few decades of the 20th century were warmer than any comparable period in the last 400 years, according to a new report from the National Research Council."
That "400 years" extends back into the Little Ice Age and does not go back into the Medieval Warming Period.
That report does not endorse the methods of Professor Mann that led to his Hockey Stick.

We will see that Mann's Hockey Stick was wrong and the Doomsayers have "moved on." In 2014, they "corrected" and "adjusted" their presentation of data and created a new, Adjusted Hockey Stick.

But, let us consider what killed the first Hockey Stick:

Lessons from Past Climate Predictions: Wallace Broecker Credits Broecker with the term "global warming" from 1975. Asserts, about Brocker's 1975 model, that the heat retention it predicted due to increasing, man-made CO2 was masked by the cooling effect of aerosols.
Now that we know what the Temperature of Broecker's future actually turned out to be,
we can add man-made aerosols to his model,
fudge a coefficient for aerosols and, so,
have the model wonderfully fit what we now know was in the future.

CO2 – An Insignificant Trace Gas? (The Science of Doom)
Part 1. (2010). This has an introduction to Earth-impacting Solar radiation. It contains in this sentence an unclear assumption
"If you measure radiation above 4um [in wavelength], you know it's generated by the terrestrial system." He refers to a graph to demonstrate the truth of that sentence. But the graph leaves me in doubt as to whether the Sun part and the Earth part are graphed via the same scale. He gives no units. Also, he is unclear whether his sentence refers to measurements at Earth's surface or at the top of its air. So, I presume he is wrong and go with two other sites that suggest the Sun contributes more in the relevant bands of IR than does the Earth. So, the air's CO2 has a net COOLING effect. So far as I can presently tell.

Back Radiation (Science of Doom)

NOAA/NCDC create warming by changing past data. (Bob Tisdale, 2015)

GLACIERS {{{ A new paper published in Quaternary Science Reviews finds that alpine glaciers in Glacier National Park, Montana retreated up to 6 times faster during the 1930’s and 1940’s than over the past 40 years. The “Multi-proxy study of sediment cores retrieved from lakes below modern glaciers supports the first detailed Neoglacial chronology for Glacier National Park (GNP)” and shows “maximum reconstructed retreat rates [in] 1930” of about 125 meters per year, compared to near zero in ~1975 and about 20 meters/year at the end of the record in ~2005. The authors report, “Results indicate that alpine glaciers in Glacier National Park advanced and retreated numerous times during the Holocene after the onset of Neoglaciation 6,500 years before the present” and “Retreat from the Little Ice Age maximum was the most dramatic episode of ice retreat in at least the last 1000 years.”

Miscellaneous notes to myself
"Relevant Times" above: atmospheric CO2 has been systematically measured since 1958. CO2 concentrations, in the days before it was measured, is estimated indirectly by methods of much lower temporal resolution. Possibly the methods cannot detect changes occuring in a few decades. Also, long ago, other mechnanisms of climate might have been active and not yet detected. So, the earlier values of CO2 might not be known or understood well enough to be relevant.
The overt correlation between increasing CO2 and Temperature has had two spectacular intervals of failure, with CO2 increasing and Temperature decreasing, in one interval, and failing to increase in another.

The predictions of imminent calamity depends upon theoretical calculations that
A) are largely hidden from the public,
B) have (in the first versions) given wrong predictions of the Temperature of the Earth and, consequently, of Sea Level,
C) have litte caculable, external (peripheral) support (e.g. the atmosphere ought to have heated faster than the surface, but has not).

This alone will stabilise CO2 levels within less than 30 years.

"Paradox One: (the blatant fraud) Despite thousands of years of proxy data (e.g. from ice cores) proving all past rises in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels FOLLOW not cause increases in global temperatures, alarmist scientists have falsely reported the opposite;
Paradox Two: (an irrational love affair with models) Despite hard empirical evidence that solar energy first heats earth’s surface before rising up to warm the air, alarmists have turned this fact full circle to program their models to suggest it is the cooler air that somehow heats earth’s warmer surface even more;
Paradox Three: (the mathematical errors) The direct heat of the sun, which can only impact half of our three-dimensional planet at any time, has been crudely modeled as constant; a ‘flat earth’ heat source with one-quarter of the intensity averaged out over the entire planet (the ‘P4 number’)"

Two Natural Components of the Recent Climate Change: (Akasofu, 2009)
Science, Method, Climatology, and Forgetting the Basics (Ric Werme) "One controversial parameter in global climate models is CO2 forcing. While we might accurately anticipate the effect of additional CO2 in cloudfree atmosphere before any warming takes place, warming leads to increased evaporation, and water vapor is a greenhouse gas. Therefore, models try to account for this by giving CO2 a bigger feedback than what one would expect from just CO2. If you model the Earth over the length of the satellite temperature record, you can adjust the feedback value until the model's output matches recent temperatures. This may be fine if CO2 is the only thing that affects the results. If there are other things, e.g. ocean currents, changes in clouds, or other external forcings like solar changes, they must be identified and included. If the authors lose track of the uncertainties, the result may be "Gospel Out." "
