“The Father of the Science of Modern Climatology” Should Be Listened To!

Professor Reid Bryson, was the 30th PhD in Meteorology granted in the history of American education, and he is on the U.N.’s Global 500 honor roll. He has also written five books and more than two hundred scientific publications, among many, many accomplishments, and contributions, in his 86 years of living.
A few quotes from an article on him:

“All this argument is the temperature going up or not, it’s absurd,” Bryson continues. “Of course it’s going up. It has gone up since the early 1800s, before the Industrial Revolution, because we’re coming out of the Little Ice Age, not because we’re putting more carbon dioxide into the air.”
Bryson mentions the retreat of Alpine glaciers, common grist for current headlines. “What do they find when the ice sheets retreat, in the Alps?”
“A silver mine! The guys had stacked up their tools because they were going to be back the next spring to mine more silver, only the snow never went,” he says. “There used to be less ice than now. It’s just getting back to normal.”
Q: Eighty percent of the heat radiated back from the surface is absorbed in the first 30 feet by water vapor…

A: And how much is absorbed by carbon dioxide? Eight hundredths of one percent. One one-thousandth as important as water vapor. You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide.

I was listening to Rush Limbaugh this afternoon, which is where I heard about this accomplished individual, some one we all should know, and couldn’t wait to get home, so I could look it up, and read the whole thing.

If any of the scientists, that are supposedly peer reviewed(I assume by each other), are given voice on the issue of gorebal warming, then this gentleman should be allowed to proceed to the front of the line.

  1. Now, let’s not confuse the issue with facts.

  2. But…I gotsta’!
    /and when you gotsta’ you gotsta’

  3. reckon I better get some shut-eye.
    See you later.

  4. Old tale to teach causal relationships: A little girl on a train puts her thumb in her mouth. At that moment the train goes dark and the lights come on (it goes through a tunnel). The girl looks at her thumb in amazement and resolves never to suck it again.

  5. Dang, vimto.
    That causality surely will turn the lights out, won’t it.
    I wonder if the early silver miners blamed themselves?

  6. What facts? Do you know the difference between “data” and “anecdote?” It would help you clarify things.

  7. Ed, you are without a doubt, one of them dimmest bulbs to ever attempt illumination. If the inestimable Prof. Bryson isn’t compelling enough for you, how about Prof. Giegengack? He even voted for your Prophet profiteer, algore.
    Class is over, data boy. Do your own research for a change.

  8. I’ll take Giegengack. If you read the article — and we assume you did — he endorses the conservation steps Gore proposes.

    And that’s really the bottom line. You can disagree with Gore all you want, but the root is that he’s encouraging energy and resource conservation. If you’re arguing that we don’t need to conserve — and that’s the way I view your claims and second-grade insults — then even your experts are against you.

    Did you read the article? Do you have a clue of what you’re talking about, or is everything you do just fluff and insults? Time to get out of the fratbrat mode and do some serious work.

    Are you opposed to conservation or not?

  9. Al Gore encourages energy conservation? No, he demands it…for everyone but himself.
    This article is just another that exposes him for the fraud we already knew him to be.
    That you would attempt to spin it any other way is further proof of what a dingus I already knew you to be.

  10. No2, the question is, do you endorse conservation? We know you have a vocabulary for insults — can you answer a straight question? Do you endorse conservation, as do your experts, or do you endorse profligate use of energy — which, of course, is an endorsement of Gore using a lot of energy, but we’ll ignore that bit of cognitive dissonance for your for a moment.

    Do you think we should waste energy or not? Do you endorse conservation?

  11. can you answer a straight question?

    Haven’t seen any lately, though.

  12. Ed, please understand that this will be your only warning.
    You’re welcome to comment, express opposing viewpoints, post links, trackbacks, whatever, within reason.
    Antagonizing and insulting my readers and contributors is, however, unacceptable behavior.
    If you continue along these lines, I’m going to block your IP address.
    Thanks for your cooperation.

  13. Conservation of what?

  14. Antagonizing and insulting my readers and contributors is, however, unacceptable behavior.

    Seriously? You allow people to call me dim, and then you have the gall to say I shouldn’t insult your readers?

    I’ll take an apology, and stick to the facts. I’m warned — I assume the warning goes to everyone else, yes?

  15. You shouldn’t make that assumption.
    The long-time contributors and regulars here have established a certain credibility with me. Some of them go back several years to the blog which will not be named.
    They are allowed leeway that is earned over time.
    I would hope that the personal insults would stop. Sarcasm and snarkiness are fine, but until we get to know you, use a tag when you’re just screwing around.
    I have no desire to turn this blog into a forum that has everybody at each other’s throats. So, what I’m saying is this: if I have to choose between you and them, I choose them.

  16. Dang, nuke.
    I forgot why the above poster was on my list, but I couldn’t remember which one. Here it is.
    Nothing has changed with his approach, and I vow to follow my own advice.

  17. I remember when you posted that.
    Time sure gets by, doesn’t it?
