Crystal Ball of Stupididy

Well here we go again.  Somebody gets a new computer for Christmas and designs a Global Warming Climate Change Model that predicatively predicts the end of the world.   Again!

Even if humans stop producing excess carbon dioxide in 2100, the lingering effects of global warming could span the next millennia. The results? By the year 3000, global warming would be more than a hot topic – the West Antarctic ice sheet could collapse, and global sea levels would rise by about 13 feet (4 meters), according to a new study.

Using a computer model, researchers looked at two scenarios – an end to humans’ industrial carbon dioxide emissions by 2010 and by 2100 – stretched out to the year 3000.

Let’s review modeling, other than Miss America; modeling can be manipulated to deliver whatever results you desire.  There’s no model that could possibly mesh in the constant variables of how the climate works.  There is only historical evidence of past climate events, and theories that attempt to explain them.  For one thing, the human lifespan doesn’t live long enough to develop tree rings in the bone marrow to tell of past climate events.  So predictions take assumptions, and assumptions are without facts.

However, this lunacy always attempts to offer solutions to what they don’t understand, nor control.

What’s For… gulp… Dinner?


That’s right, insects, it’s the other… meat.  The suggestion that eating insects will help curb climate change and lower carbon dioxide is laughable indeed.  Yet, here’s some braincell from the Netherlands telling us that insects are a viable alternative to eating meat.  Sure, insects are protein and in some cultures insects are actually consumed as nourishment, but really, how do you like your cockroaches?  With Barbecue sauce or dipped in chocolate?


Researchers from Wageningen University in the Netherlands say that insects produce far less greenhouse gases than cattle and pigs do, and would thus be a viable alternative to eating meat.

There was also no clarification about how the cattle and pigs used in the study were raised. Studies have shown that conventional feedlot raising methods are highly toxic to the environment, while traditional, pasture-based methods of raising animals can actually replenish environmental health  

As usual, here’s the premise that humans and its animal inhabitants are somehow destroying the planet.  Yawn! Are any of you getting tired of hearing this nonsense from so called, researchers?  It was the warmest year on record; it was the coldest winter on record, yadda, yadda, yadda…


Hey, did you hear that climate change was responsible for the rise and fall of the Roman Empire.  Yes indeed, all those SUV’s the Romans were driving around caused the collapse of their empire.  Or maybe it was bovine flatulence.


Climate change seems a factor in the rise and fall of the Roman empire, according to a study of ancient tree growth that urges greater awareness of the risks of global warming in the 21st century.

The study said: “Wet and warm summers occurred during periods of Roman and medieval prosperity. Increased climate variability from AD 250-600 coincided with the demise of the western Roman empire and the turmoil of the migration period.”

I wonder what the price of gas was back then to power those chariots?  At least we know they didn’t have computers back then to simulate and predict changes in the climate.  I guess they were too busy fighting off the Barbarians.  Then again, they may have had an Al Gore equivalent warning about the impending environmental disasters.  His name was probably Aesop, and he probably told a few Fables in his time.


We still don’t understand how the atmosphere circulation works so it is incredible that the computer modelers imagined it could be simulated. I wrote previously about the lack of surface weather data and how it is worse above the surface.  I also quoted Denis Rancourt’s comment that, “Although these models are among the most elaborate predictive models of complex non-linear phenomena, they are nonetheless sweeping oversimplifications of the global climate system and its mechanistic intricacies.”


The next time they tell you computer models forecast dire predictions of pending climate disasters, think about the last Hollywood disaster flick where they used a Crystal Ball to predict the end of the world.

What’s Really For Dinner?
