Architect 1 – “You obviously have a lot of confidence about what the scientists tell us about the past. Do you have the same confidence about what they tell us about the present?”
The Theory of Uniformitarianism informs us that the laws of physics, thermodynamics, chemistry, and mathematics have not been mutated by the passage of time. Therefore we can look to the mechanisms of the past to inform us about the mechanisms of the future… as we can so observe them in action in the present.
Architect 2 – “Do you think Donald Trump has even 1% of the brain power it would take to make heads or tails of the graphics included in your post?”
I seek the advice of accountants and financial advisors when making financial decisions. I seek the advice of a lawyer when confronted by legal issues. If I want to make a decision about what to wear to ring the Salvation Army bell tomorrow, I would look for the products of a meteorologist.
You, Archy, are an architect… being an intelligent man, you allowed your mind to critically assess what you saw on my post and you came to an “informed decision” about it.
President Trump, being a business man, consults REAL scientists when making his decisions about “global warming.” Personally, I think that President Trump has considered and embraced the scientific method as being the best path forward with respect to “climate change.” To date, the scientific method HAS NOT been applied to the pseudo-science of global warming. It has NOT passed the public scrutiny of scientifically qualified peers.
I am a certified geologist, geophysicist, and environmental specialist… and from the beginning… AGW smelled like ripe fish to me. Everything screamed, “Show me how you came up with that!” In high school, I learned that CO2 was a colorless, odorless gas. At 220 +/- ppm (2/100ths of 1 percent) of the atmosphere… Al Gore and Bill Nye the Science Guy are telling me that CO2 is a heinous crippler of climate …that the very gas, which is wonderfully beneficial to plant life, is a threat to agriculture. They are telling me that warmer is worse that colder.
AGW has been neither validated nor publically reviewed by peers. I am one of 31,000+ credentialed scientists who petitioned to have AGW publically peer reviewed.
AGWs may go first: Please, in with respect to AGW, explain the origins of the Younger Dryas and the Medieval Warming Period. Please compare the Maunder Minimum to your observations. Release (if you haven’t destroyed it) your raw data set so that we… your peers… can re-create your experiment(s).
Now, do you understand why we hear only crickets?
As stipulated by the "Theory of Uniformitarianism," the laws of physics and chemistry are not changed or suspended by the history or presence of human beings.
