    <<<Warmer rocks lose their magnetic properties, and so the team was able to use the loss of magnetism in certain areas to calculate an estimate of the geothermal heat flux.>>
    Were talking about really hot rocks like nearly melted.

    I have to agree with Watts that more skepticism is warranted regarding the origin of the heat.

  • Does Solar increase jobs?

    Best answer: What's strange is those who claim it does, are not considering that this means solar is less efficient. It takes all this work to produce the same energy. When there are jobs in fracking or in North Dakota, you are developing new energy. The global warmers are proposing to increase jobs to produce the same... show more
    Best answer: What's strange is those who claim it does, are not considering that this means solar is less efficient. It takes all this work to produce the same energy. When there are jobs in fracking or in North Dakota, you are developing new energy. The global warmers are proposing to increase jobs to produce the same amount of energy or less.

    On top of that, you have Bastiat's broken window fallacy, made famous when Henry Hazlitt published it in Economics in One Lesson. Any money spent on solar is money that could not be spent on something else. When you are putting in all these subsidies to produce solar jobs, this is money that could have produced jobs elsewhere, you could have cut taxes to produce a better business environment, etc. You see the jobs created, but the jobs foregone are unseen. Then you have to factor in the higher price of solar energy, and even more jobs are lost.

  • Will White Christmases be a thing of the past in Ireland by midcentury?

    Best answer: Well, since I'm Irish I can say with a high level of confidence that we rarely get snow at all, let alone on Christmas day. In the Wicklow mountains just to the south of Dublin you get maybe 30 days of snow per year. In Dublin itself, a few days per year and even then it tends to be sleet rather than snow. So... show more
    Best answer: Well, since I'm Irish I can say with a high level of confidence that we rarely get snow at all, let alone on Christmas day. In the Wicklow mountains just to the south of Dublin you get maybe 30 days of snow per year. In Dublin itself, a few days per year and even then it tends to be sleet rather than snow. So white Christmases are not a 'thing' now, let alone in 30 years time! That's why people put bets on it because its such a rare phenomenon. Odds currently are 5/1 for Dublin airport. So in the middle of winter, with a projected colder winter than normal, they're still only giving a 20% probability.

    Of course the problem in Ireland is that the pubs close on Christmas Day so without any reason to leave the house, no one will notice one way or the other. :p

    Best answer: You have to be pretty ignorant about the world not to realize that Socialism is against religion since it is generally a threat to the authority of the state. This Pope wants to further Socialism which is ultimately against the religion that he is supposedly the leader. It is a disgrace that Catholic Church made him pope.

    We are admonished "not to fall into "four perverse attitudes" regarding the future of the planet: "denial, indifference, resignation and trust in inadequate solutions." "

    This pope reminds me of John McCain. He makes a fool of himself repeating leftist propaganda as if it were true so he would appear to be nuanced and fair. What a dunce.

  • What will the state of global fisheries be in a hundred years?

    Best answer: I don't know about the world. The US has a very good management plan in place. The fish stocks have been improved in the past decade. If this keeps up it will be better than it is now.

    I have no idea how global warming or something of that order will change things.

    There are people who contend that global warming is a theory which is not based on solid empirical evidence. Does thermodynamics as a discipline have anything to say about this environmental (and social, and political) issue? Please be as descriptive as possible.

    Best answer: They like parallel "Hockey Sticks" where temperature increases match CO2 increases.

    The Arctic was 10 degrees warmer in the 1930s and 1940s, which is also when the U.S. Midwest had temperatures in the 100s and 110s and there was very little mechanical measurements around the World.

    Extreme environmentalist scientists have been running NOAA, GISSTEMP, and NASA for the past 40+ years. They've been in charge of the data and know what they need to do in order to make their theory seem plausible.

    The 1930s and 1940s use to be part of the blade of the temperature "hockey stick" in its day, but has since been blended into the handle. They justified the downgrade in temperatures of the 30s and 40s through proxy data and computer modeling, simply because they could. No mechanical data for most of the world makes it easy to adjust global temps downward by -0.2C and totally erase what science was telling us 15 to 20 years ago.

    James Hansen, Michael Mann, and Gavin Schmidt are FAKE SCIENTISTS and are considered to be EXTREME ENVIRONMENTALISTS. If it wasn't for Mann and Hansen's shenanigans, Schmidt wouldn't have a job today at GISSTEMP.

    Best answer: Naomi Oreskes is a scientific historian who actually set the "97% Scientific Consensus" misnomer in perspective.

    She stated that only 20% of the peer-reviewed "Global Warming" papers actually stated "human cause" to Global Warming.

    She also understood that 55% of peer-reviewed "Global Warming" papers merely implied "human-cause".

    She also implies in the YouTube video link in the WUWT article that she has an extreme faith in Al Gore's ability to "get out the truth" about "Global Warming".

    I actually think she has an overwhelming "high opinion" of herself.

    Nothing more needs to be said, because she continually contradicts herself in historic ways.

    She's a scientific historian looking to make a name for herself.

    IMO it's not working, so it doesn't matter what she says about Fred Singer.

    ---------------------------------------...

    "Beyond the Ivory Tower: The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change"

    In 2007, Oreskes expanded her analysis, stating that approximately 20 percent of abstracts explicitly endorsed the consensus on climate change that: "Earth's climate is being affected by human activities". In addition, 55 percent of abstracts "implicitly" endorsed the consensus by engaging in research to characterize the ongoing and/or future impact of climate change (50 percent of abstracts) or to mitigate predicted changes (5 percent). The remaining 25 percent focused on either paleoclimate (10%) or developing measurement techniques (15%); Oreskes did not classify these as taking a position on contemporary global climate change.

    "implicitly endorsed" is simply an implication. She's a "Climate Clown" if she really believes that scientists who "implicate" are actually making a statement of "TOTAL CONSENSUS".

    She's simply a 2-faced liberal looking to make a name for herself.

    Best answer: Yeah, it must be Bush's fault...ooops strike that... Trump's fault.
    Bozos on here accuse me of politicizing science and everything else but these redistributionists always seem to think their redistribution schemes are about science. It is just so stupid and ridiculous, you would think they could look at it and maybe a light bulb (even a tiny Christmas lightbulb) would go off in their head and they too would realize that it is so blatantly politicized by them but it seems there is a mental barrier in their brains preventing them from even considering anything like that.

    It was a sham from the get go and it isn't surprising they would blame the US. At least we can say the US is a world leader again. Seriously that isn't a bad thing. The rest of the world would be idiots to harm themselves for dubious gains.
