American Elephants


Watch the Whole Thing, and Share it With Your Friends by The Elephant's Child

John Christy PhD is a Climatologist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville. Dr. Roy Spencer is also there. They measure the temperature of the earth with satellites and weather balloons. Here he is addressing the Paris Global Warming Policy Forum.

This is a little long, but utterly fascinating, as he explains the reality of today’s climate, what is proved and what comes from computer models rather than from observed and tested fact.

Back when everyone decided to get all excited about climate, federal money became very available to anyone who could write a good grant proposal. They borrowed the computer programs Wall Street had used to predict future market value. They put in what they knew for sure about the workings of the climate, which was not very much, what they thought would probably be correct and then a lot of educated guesses. The grants got them fancier labs, and new computers and some assistants, but the provable part seemed to escape them. (That’s me, not Dr. Christy)

There’s a lot of information here, and he does a fine job of explaining what is known and what is not, and it is very worth your time. Enjoy.
