Climate Research Strike Falls Flat, Colleagues Choose Sharm el-Sheikh

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Back in January, WUWT gave our full support to  Bruce GlavovicIain White and Tim Smith‘s call for a climate research moratorium, until governments keep their promises. Sadly most of their colleagues appear to have chosen to ignore the strike and attend COP27.

Yet another climate change report

Evidence on global warming is piling up. Nations aren’t acting. Some researchers are asking what difference more reports will make

PUBLISHED : 13 MAR 2022 AT 04:00
WRITER: RAYMOND  ZHONG

Sometimes, Bruce C Glavovic feels so proud to be an environmental scientist, studying coastal planning and teaching future researchers, that it moves him to tears.

“We’ve had 26 Conference of the Parties meetings, for heaven’s sake,” he said, referring to the United Nations global warming summits. More scientific reports, another set of charts. “I mean, seriously, what difference is that going to make?”

“My involvement with IPCC has been a defining feature of my life for the last five to six years; I’ve slept, drunk, eaten IPCC,” Prof Glavovic said. “It’s been an absolute privilege.”

Still, he has decided not to take part in the panel’s next assessment. And he wants his fellow scientists to join him.

Few seem ready to do so, though many have weak faith in government action. The journal Nature surveyed dozens of scientists who worked on another recent IPCC report. Some 60% said they believed the planet would warm in this century by at least 3C compared with preindustrial times, much more than current international targets. A similar share said they had experienced anxiety, grief or other distress related to climate change.

What a let down. Obviously I am not trying to imply the decision to ignore the strike and attend a lavish expenses paid trip to the upcoming COP27 climate conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, one of the wildest, most frenzied, hedonistic party spots on the planet, is motivated by anything other than a desire by scientists to serve the interests of the global community.

Correction: COP27, not COP28 (h/t Coeur de Lion)

Indeed! All kidding aside, I read the other day that the Egyptian government is already scrambling to buck up food supplies in that nation of 105 million plus. So between the Left’s war on fossil fuels and the war in Ukraine, fuel prices are soaring, which translates to higher fertilizer and transport costs, and ultimately much higher food costs in a region of the world that can ill afford them.

COP 27 is scheduled for this November. I don’t think I’d want to be hanging out in a ‘hedonistic’ resort for purposes of virtue signaling if Arab Spring becomes Arab Fall.

And by the way, while the increased atmospheric CO2 has done nothing to measurably change temperatures, crop yields are the highest EVER, re-forestation and the greening of the planet (increased plant life) is happening at a greater pace that EVER, deserts are turning green at the highest pace EVER recorded. I guess these climate-change-partiers traveling on private jets to silly meetings is doing some good after all.

If you have read “Stranger In A Strange Land” (RAH), then my question would probably make more sense.

Salt Lake City? Never made it into the city. Had a service call there (in 1971) and the job site was between the airport and the city. Overnighted in an $8/night motel, alone, and flew back to California next morning.

You’ll recall that the MD on the (2nd) Mars expedition was Muslim, Dr. “Stinky” Mahmoud.

Interesting. I’d never looked it up before: “Stranger in a Strange Land won the 1962 Hugo Award for Best Novel[10] and became the first science fiction novel to enter The New York Times Book Review‘s best-seller list”.

I still believe that later this century Heinlein will be recognized as a formidable 20th philosopher.

Stranger, along with Dune, are the two best SciFi novels EVEH! Nothing else comes close.

And of course, there is the classic Heinlein quote, that is among the greatest quotes EVEH:

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”

I recall some time ago, say 25 years or so, the political elites decided they were going to clamp down on this “grand old” profession in Paris, & it was made quite clear that the police were going to be very thorough in their clamping down operations!!! Then it came to light that said professional ladies were going to protest at this unprovoked attack upon their ancient art & profession, by naming names, especially names of those in the police, the civil service, the government, & everyone else who “occasionally ” availed themselves of said professional services!!! For some strange reason the clamping down actions were undertaken with a somewhat lacklustre manner, with no professional ladies being detained or scrutinised, or even prosecuted for their evil ways!!! Very strange that, I would have thought these loyal, honest, devoted politicians, & their civil servants, & other honest & decent public figures, would have been most keen to make an example of these, “ladies of the night”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot for the life of me think why not!!!!!!!!!!!!! I remember my first trip to Paris in my very early 20s, we got there late in the night due to rail delays, looking for the nearest Youth Hostel to kip down at, the only joy (excuse the pun) we got, was from a young woman, who we had witnessed being picked up & getting into a car, disappearing for about half an hour, then returning to the pavement/sidewalk, exiting the motor vehicle while hoisting her underwear, & she was very helpful showing us via our map where the nearest hostel was, never got her name, but was quite busy that night, it was a Saturday after all!!!!!!!!! Unlike climate scientists, she seemed a true pro!!!

Some 60% (of IPCC scientists) said they believed the planet would warm in this century by at least 3C compared with preindustrial times

Which tells you all you need to know about the supposed “science” of the IPCC and its so-called “scientists”. They’re climate model zealots. There is not a shred of observational evidence that indicates +3 C over pre-industrial global temperatures. Only climate models spew numbers like that. The temperature record indicates about 1 C since the Little Ice Age (“pre-industrial”) and at least 0.5 C of that is widely acknowledged to be a rebound from the artificially cool temperatures of the LIA. The current 40-year trend is about 1.3 C per century. And that 40 year period was measured during one of the two significant 0.5 C warming periods of the last century, separated by a 35-year pause, which means if history repeats itself, the long-term trend may be lower.

In my former profession, & I dare day in all other engineering professions, computer modelling is carried out using programmes based on well proven & known physical phenomena, sometimes called forces, however, they are based upon traditional design calculations that for at least a couple of hundred years made by hand, long-winded, complex, & downright hard work, & the results generally worked very well for the vast majority of buildings/structures, etc. These computer models are purportedly modelling something we don’t fully understand by a long measure, yes we know a lot more than we did before the scary-story started 30-40 years ago, but a lot of it is still a mystery to most scientists. Still, I am happy to wait for ET & his buddies to come down to Earth to tell Mankind is making a pig’s ear of it all, trust me, Hollywood is gonna make a hit movie all about that……….err they’ve already done that haven’t they??? 😉

[stinkerp, my comment here is in no way a criticism of your comment; I upvoted it.]

The Berkeley Earth graph doesn’t indicate an endpoint, but from its shape I assume it was prior to the double-Super El Nino beginning in about 2015. Using a 10-year smoothing (Centered, using 5 years on either side of the data point?) it manages to obscure the 18+ year pause beginning at the end of the 20th Century. Intentionally?

Berkeley Earth’s graph is titled “Climate Change” instead of “Temperature.” This is significant because whenever CliSciFi uses “Climate Change” it means “CAGW.” Their (not so subtitle) implication is that all the increases in temperature are caused by Man. While one can say temperature is a form of climate change, given that the early 20th Century warming is essentially the same as the late 20th Century warming, one cannot say that the late 20th Century warming was caused primarily by Man’s emissions of CO2.

The 35-year mid-20th Century temperature profile shown in Berkeley graph is properly called a declining trend in temperature, not a pause. “The Ice Age Cometh” comes to mind. [intentional pun]

For some reason I initially assumed the graph came from Berkeley Earth. Did it? What is its provenance?

G’Day Stinkerp,

“… the supposed “science” of the IPCC …”

When the report base is limited to “peer-reviewed” papers published in “reputable journals” – yup, ‘supposed science’. (Ref. a Climategate email about “… we’ll make certain that this paper isn’t published till after the selection deadline” or words to that effect.)

I seem to recall someone dug down to the ‘original’ papers – and found a tract published by Greenpeace, and other ‘studies’ that didn’t meet the selection criteria.  It’s pure political and anything goes.

It’s not going to make any difference how many meeting you have if you don’t have the evidence that humans are causing the climate to change, and you don’t have this evidence.

You think you have this evidence, but you haven’t looked closely enough. That’s your problem, you haven’t looked closely enough. You are depending on others to form your opinion, and the others are lying to you, or they are dupes like you, who are passing on misinformation inadvertently, like you are doing here.

COP27 at Sharm el-Sheikh will allow these valiant researchers to go snorkeling and watch coral reefs that regularly tolerate 30°C waters. They can watch corals die – before their very eyes! – when water temperatures soar to a steaming 30.1°C, and pH drops precipitously from 8.1 to 8.05, all due to human-caused global warming. How could they turn down the chance to do ground-breaking field work for future peer-reviewed papers on ocean acidification and coral bleaching, while partying at night, all to save the planet! /s and all at taxpayers’ expense!

The planet breathes a sigh of relief, knowing that its future is in good hands.

Combine Bruce Glavovic’s statements, as quoted in the above article:
‘We’ve had 26 Conference of the Parties meetings, for heaven’s sake,’ he said, referring to the United Nations global warming summits. More scientific reports, another set of charts. “I mean, seriously, what difference is that going to make?’
with this statement (most often misattributed to Albert Einstein):
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

It’s then not too hard to see the major reason(s) that persons—“scientists” would be too generous a term to use here—want to attend COP conferences, especially when they can jet in and out.

The former is doable, though not restful. Trust me, I’ve tried repeatedly and get the same results.

The latter is not possible. I tried that too but it’s too messy, seldom hitting the target, more often just soaking the pillow which is very, very unnerving when you wake up to a puddle beside your head.

From the NightLife-CityGuide site linked at the top of the post:

“With the sun, water and warm temperatures all year round (during the winter average temperatures are around 20-25 ° C, while in summer reaching 40 ° C), Sharm el Sheikh is a favorite destination for international tourists.”

Sounds like a great place for Climate Refugees from northern climes to spend November.

Gotta give the warmist cult one thing – they sure can pick awesome destinations for their powwows…

“(60%) said they had experienced anxiety, grief or other distress related to climate change”

Remember “Weepy” Bill McKibbin and all the climate scientists whose careers were ended by the so-called “Climate Blues” a decade ago? There is unquestionably some sort of psychopathology aspect that is part of the make up of the climate science crowd. Likely it’s in the broader environmental field, rather, and only in the activist types.

The Climate Blues sufferers seemed to be genuine believers who fell ill at the worst time for warming proponents: after Climategate emails revelations of crooked science, a 300% overestimate of warming predictions compared to observations and recognition that we were in a long “Pause” in temperature rise despite a 30% increase in CO2.

The typical rationalization was that in their research they could see the oncoming juggernaut of dangerous warming and “no one would listen”. At a time when climate theory was under its worst siege, this has earmarks of classical psychological denial (refusal – at least temporarily- to accept that one has lost a loved one is a good example). For climate scientists who have 10 yrs in study and 10 -30yrs in careers, niggling doubts that you are constantly fending off can make you sick.

“I’ve slept, drunk, eaten IPCC the Climate Koolade, Prof Glavovic said. “It’s been an absolute privilege.”
There, fixed.

“Some 60% said they believed the planet would warm in this century by at least 3C compared with preindustrial times”

21st century neo-science. They polled what a plurality of their fellow acolytes believes in spite of the absence of fact and set that down as their constant, which they then model to show us how, no questions please, CO2 effects CAGW. You just can’t make this crap up. LMAO science! sheesh!

Two faces are not nearly enough to facilitate the hypocrisy of these envirofraudsters. The putrid smell and horrible taste they leave behind will haunt us for decades if not centuries. Their legacy is one the most heinous destroyers of order and bountiful life would envy.

Are those individuals even vaguely aware of what is going on in the real world????

The real world does not agree with the models, therefore it must be wrong. Adjustments will be applied as necessary to ensure a correct reality.
