Michael Mann Issues Traditional COP26 Last Chance Climate Warning

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Following on from his “last chance” warnings in 2015, another 2015 and 2020, Michael Mann wants us to understand that COP26 really is our last chance to address the climate crisis.

World’s climate scientists to issue stark warning over global heating threat

IPCC’s landmark report will be most comprehensive assessment yet as governments prepare for pivotal UN talks in November

Fiona Harvey Environment correspondent
Mon 9 Aug 2021 03.00 AEST

The fires, floods and extreme weather seen around the world in recent months are just a foretaste of what can be expected if global heating takes hold, scientists say, as the world’s leading authority on climate change prepares to warn of an imminent and dire risk to the global climate system.

Michael Mann, distinguished professor of atmospheric science at Pennsylvania State University, said this would be the last IPCC assessment that can make a real difference in policy terms, before we exceed 1.5C and the ambitions of the Paris agreement.

“Climate change is now causing amplified weather extremes of the sort we’ve been witnessing this summer – droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, floods, superstorms,” he said. “The impacts of climate change are no longer subtle. We see them playing out in real time in the form of these unprecedented extreme weather disasters.”

This is a followup to Michael Mann’s last chance warning in 2015;

klimaretter.info: Professor Mann, a new climate agreement is to be concluded in Paris in December . Isn’t it already too late for that? Is it still physically possible to limit global warming to a maximum of two degrees Celsius?

Michael Mann: Yes, of course! Admittedly, Paris is probably the last chance to get the necessary emissions reductions off the ground – if we had started 15 years ago, the necessary change in the energy system could have been more gentle. The earth has warmed up by around one degree since the beginning of industrialization, another half a degree is already safe. So it is clear that there is little room for maneuver.

Mann’s warning about the 2016 election;

“This will be a make-or-break presidency as far as our ability to avert a climate change catastrophe,” says Michael Mann, meteorology professor and director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University, whose “hockey-stick” shaped graph warned of sharply rising emissions and temperatures.

I wonder if Mann will get to issue the COP27 climate last chance warning? He seems to enjoy it.

Zig Zag, I did my Geology Masters Thesis in the Seven Devils Mountains of Idaho. The name came from an Indigenous story about a boy sent into the mountains to tend a flock of sheep. He came running down the mountain with a wild story about a devil. They sent him back up, he came running down again with another story about a fearsome devil. Finally, the seventh time he came running down they said you are lying and we don’t want to hear it again. Looks like Mikey Mann is only up to three devils, we should expect another four.

Andrew Montford’s wonderful 2010 book, The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science was one of the most important books I’ve read in the last couple of decades. His recounting of the incredible dogged efforts of McIntyre and McKittrick in the service of science and humanity revealed Michael “Piltdown” Mann as the fraud, cheat and charlatan that he is.

That’s a rebuttal? Hah. Firstly Wahl and Ammann showed that the PCA usage had a negligible effect (0.02C from memory) on the MBH reconstruction. Strike about one third of the ‘rebuttal’ 

Secondly McIntyre makes much of the NAS panel recommendation that Bristlecones should be avoided and makes the incorrect assertion that the hockey stick shape depends on them. He fails to mention the susbsequent follow up from panel chair Gerald North where he said that Bristlecones are only problematic over the last 150 years or so – for which we have a wealth of other proxies. He also does not mention this paper by Salzer et al which concludes

 (i) The unique 20th-century increase in ring width is specific to the upper forest border and is not associated with a particular elevation. The link to upper treeline rather than to a specific elevation is not consistent with the WUE hypothesis of indirect fertilization by CO2 or fertilization by nitrogen deposition. (ii) The strong modern trend in growth observed at the upper forest border is not the product of any preprocessing or standardization of the data—there was none. (iii) The modern trend is not related to the difference between strip-bark and whole-bark growth forms.”

Some might think that mildly relevant? Strike another third of the ‘rebuttal’.
 
 Lastly, like Montford before him, McIntyre tries to make a big deal out of the non-appearance of the r-squared (r2) statistic for the MBH curves. Read the comments by Gavin Schmidt in response to Judith Curry’s drive-by at RC to discover why r2 is simply not a useful statistic in the context of climate reconstructions.
 
 But don’t believe me – the very NAS panel that McIntyre likes to quote repeatedly (and selectively) on Bristlecones said this about r2 in the section on ‘prediction skill’ (p92 in the pdf)
 
However, r2 measures how well some linear function of the predictions matches the data, not how well the predictions themselves perform. The coefficients in that linear function cannot be calculated without knowing the values being predicted, so it is not in itself a useful indication of merit.
 
 Again, not a fact you would learn from the Auditor. Strike the final third of the ‘rebuttal’.

Gavin Schmidt asked; “You ok with that?” Gavin is very concerned about a site that gives the Earth’s temperatures from over 52,411 sites and those temperature do not seem to comport with what he believes the temperature should be. Is Gavin OK with what follows?

“In his original publications of the stick, Mann purported to use a standard method known as principal component analysis, or PCA, to find the dominant features in a set of more than 70 different climate records.
But it wasnt so. McIntyre and McKitrick obtained part of the program that Mann used, and they found serious problems. Not only does the program not do conventional PCA, but it handles data normalization in a way that can only be described as mistaken.
Now comes the real shocker. This improper normalization procedure tends to emphasize any data that do have the hockey stick shape, and to suppress all data that do not. To demonstrate this effect, McIntyre and McKitrick created some meaningless test data that had, on average, no trends. This method of generating random data is called Monte Carlo analysis, after the famous casino, and it is widely used in statistical analysis to test procedures. When McIntyre and McKitrick fed these random data into the Mann procedure, out popped a hockey stick shape!

My rebuttal of the rebuttal is awaiting moderation as I post this. But this is all a bit moot in the light of the fact that the now two-decades old study has been confirmed time and time again. Why, just today another confirmation was published in the IPCC report. The original hockey stick was Northern Hemisphere only, this new one is global, has a longer ‘shaft’ and a more pronounced ‘blade’. Here they are side by side.

In 1769, Joseph Priestley warned that scientists overly attached to a favorite hypothesis would not hesitate to “warp the whole course of nature.” In 1999, Michael Mann and his colleagues published a reconstruction of past temperature in which the MWP simply vanished. This unique estimate became known as the “hockey stick,” because of the shape of the temperature graph.
Normally in science, when you have a novel result that appears to overturn previous work, you have to demonstrate why the earlier work was wrong. But the work of Mann and his colleagues was initially accepted uncritically, even though it contradicted the results of more than 100 previous studies. Other researchers have since reaffirmed that the Medieval Warm Period was both warm and global in its extent.
There is an overwhelming bias today in the media regarding the issue of global warming. In the past two years, this bias has bloomed into an irrational hysteria. Every natural disaster that occurs is now linked with global warming, no matter how tenuous or impossible the connection. As a result, the public has become vastly misinformed on this and other environmental issues.

“McIntyre therefore prepared a revised dataset, replacing Briffa’s selected 12 cores with the 34 from Khadyta River. The revised chronology was simply staggering. The sharp uptick in the series at the end of the twentieth century had vanished, leaving a twentieth century apparently without a significant trend. The blade of the Yamal hockey stick, used in so many of those temperature reconstructions that the IPCC said validated Michael Mann’s work, was gone.”

Climategate and all the attempts by the apologists to push it under the rug was certainly the watershed moment, as you point out the efforts of McIntyre and McKittrick certainly got the ball rolling. Yet, not surprisingly the AGW true believers are still in denial over Montford’s book and what it revealed. Donna Laframboise’ excellent jab at the IPCC, ‘The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert‘ is a good runner up.

It’s just far too easy to apply fake emotional arguments to anything that’s otherwise too complicated for most people to understand on their own.

“I don’t see the political left giving up something [climate alarmism] so effective any time soon.”

No, they are not going to give it up, and unfortunately, some Republicans may take it up, too, which will just give the left more reason to follow that course.

Republicans are their own worst enemies. The Leftwing Media has a lot of them spooked, which makes the Republicans make bad decisions to placate potential critics on the left.

Meanwhile, the nation goes to hell in a Democrat handbasket, while some Repubicans are more worried about how they are percieved by the Leftwing Media than anything else.

What these Republicans should be worried about is how they are percieved by their constituents. About 18 Republicans are going to support the Democrat takeover of the United States by voting for the Infrastructure bill. The next election will be telling.

You should hear some of the pathetic explanations these 18 Republicans are offering for why they are going to vote for this Democrat Trojan Horse. These Republicans don’t seem to realize there is a war going on for the Soul of the Republic. They seem to think it is just business as usual. Meanwhile, the Democrats use these bills to try to guarantee the Republicans will never gain the presidency again.

One Party Rule is what the Democrats are after, and these 18 Republicans are helping this effort. The 18 Republicans are Useful Idiots for the Democrats. No amount of glowing words will make this deal look good to Republican voters because they know what the ultimate goal of passing this is: Giving more power to the Democrats.

Idiocracy.

The Democrats already have single party rule and it’s more than just the desire to sustain and cement it. Freedom, the Constitution and the nations sovereignty are all under attack by the Marxists driving the agenda of the current administration which has been systematically undermining Article II of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in order to facilitate their agenda.

If the Supreme court wasn’t so political, they would take the unprecedented step and immediately rule 9-0 against Biden’s defiance of the court with his extension of the moratorium on eviction and do so without a referral from a lower court. Even the Democrats on the court should know that what comes around goes around and the next go around will not be pleasant for them given how poorly the Democrats in power are running things. This blatant defiance of the Constitution, the rule of law and the Bill of Rights must stop and unfortunately, Congress is too feckless to address this.

I’ll always remember how hurt McCain looked when the press turned on him after the primaries when he ran for president.
He actually believed that since he had been the press’s favorite Republican for decades, he could always been counted to generate an attack quote against his fellow Republicans, the press would go easy on him in the general election.

However when given the choice between a real Democrat and a fake one, the press chose the real Democrat. So did most of the voters.

Latest global average energy 341.2 w-m² received by the sun. Summer land heats up increasing to 358.22 watts. Atmosphere contains an average 239.7 watts per square meter. With land absorbing more heat, atmosphere thermal heat expands to 249.36 watts. Was higher on 4th July 254.37 watts. Sea ice this year has expanded to 24 million km² (b/t high 26.4 and low 22.4). Any warning isn’t to be taken seriously. Doesn’t match observations. Scientists that advocate climate models as 100% certainty and don’t think observations aren’t needed lean to politicians pressure to show crisis. Climate models contain to much warming (global average energy would be 346.5 w-m² under climate models). First week of April was when both hemispheres equal. With an average 340-342 w-m² was observed. This transition (NH becomes warmer than southern hemisphere in spring). Last year Nov 18th the transition occurred with 345 watts average. Natural warming has ended and natural cooling is starting. .

“Atmosphere contains an average 239.7 watts per square meter.”

This makes no sense. The atmosphere can contain Joules, but not watts per m^2. The atmosphere is simply a passive layer between a nearly ideal BB surface and space that attenuates surface emissions before being being emitted into space and that amplifies solar forcing to support higher surface emissions (a higher surface temperature). The Joules of energy that ‘amplify’ the forcing are the same Joules being attenuated before being emitted by the planet.

I predict a very snowy winter in the northern hemisphere this year. I am taking three factors into account.
First, galactic radiation is concentrated in the high and mid latitudes, according to the geomagnetic field.
Second, the oceans are warm enough that there will be enough water vapor to produce plenty of snow.
Third, there will already be La Niña in November, which will cause temperatures to drop in high latitudes.
In this situation, we can expect frequent stratospheric intrusions and snow fronts in the middle latitudes.comment image

Snow dumps up to a whopping 2m (6.6ft) have been reported.
However, for all the thrill of fresh powder, New Zealand’s Mountain Safety Council (MSC) has urged Kiwis not to rush to the slopes, warning that the first two days after a snow dump brings a major risk of avalanches.
“The 24-48hr period after a storm like this one is the most dangerous, and while the temptation is to rush out and get the fresh powder it’s really the time for patience and a cautious approach,” said MSC Chief Executive Mike Daisley.

These files are, as far as we can tell, temperature data, modelling results and other such useful files, i.e. these are the files produced and worked on by the CRU teams, as well as considerable amounts of information on—and code from—the actual computer modelling programmes themselves.
In other words, these are the guts of CRU’s actual computer models—the data, the code and the applications.
And they are, by all accounts, a total bloody mess.
