RE: Articles?
There is new research released and linked at "The Resilient Earth"
http://theresilientearth.com/?q=content/...-emissions
Excerpt:
Scientists are coming to the realization that claims about greenhouse gas emissions can have integrity only if verified by direct atmospheric measurements. Emissions data are produced by greenhouse gas emitters of all sizes—farms, factories and entire nations. These emissions are often quoted with high precision but, as Euan Nisbet and Ray Weiss state in their article, “misreporting still occurs, whether by simple error, ignorance, or intention.” They claim that carbon-equivalent emissions are currently assessed by “bottom-up” methods, which are made up from a variety of local statistics such as fuel consumption or numbers of cows. When these measured “bottom-up” emissions are rolled up to a global scale, the amounts can disagree by factors of two or more when compared with direct atmospheric measurements.

How can you control GHG emissions when you cannot accurately identify their sources? And how can you blame the rise in atmospheric CO2 solely on humanity if you cannot reconcile actual emissions with atmospheric measurements? The answer is that you cannot. To try and shore up the case for emissions control—including all those calls for “cap and trade” and a carbon tax—the authors want to establish a global network to provide a “top down” assessment of anthropogenic emission.

The CO2 Record in Plant Fossils

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

Origins of Extreme Weather

Selected Excerpt:

Water and Heat

[Image: latentheat.gif]

Water has one of the highest heat capacities of all known substances. This means that it takes a lot of heat to raise the temperature of water by just one degree. Water thus absorbs a tremendous amount of heat from solar radiation, and furthermore, because solar radiation can penetrate water easily, large amounts of solar energy are stored in the world's oceans.
Further energy is absorbed by water vapor as the latent heat of vaporization, which is the heat required to evaporate water or change it from a liquid to a vapor. This latent heat of vaporization is given up to the atmosphere when water condenses to form liquid water as rain. If the rain changes to a solid in the form of snow or ice, it also releases a quantity of heat known as the latent heat of fusion.
Thus, both liquid water and water vapor are important in absorbing heat from solar radiation and transporting and redistributing this heat around the planet.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

To add to your argument, I recently read that the total amount of estimated human produced CO2 in the atmosphere falls within the estimated error of the sum of all of the other natural sources of CO2.

The very foundations of AGW are slowly crumbling under the assault of scientists who were always suspicious of AGW assumptions but were previously afraid to speak out. Thankfully, it is becoming more fashionable to challenge the IPCC and its modelers. Unfortunately, politicians and media are still listening to the nonsense spewing from Gore and Hansen.

Oooo I can answer that one. It's all about the carbon ratios. What the ratios show, according to my sources which I will link, it shows that ALL of the natural CO2 and HALF of the man made CO2 are being sunk. Ok that is probably not the scientific way of saying it but you get my meaning. Anyway, half of the anthro CO2 remains in the atmosphere so we are solely responsible for the increase as we are knocking the totals above what the sinks can naturally deal with.

Climate of the Past

Clim. Past, 6, 525–530, 2010

Climate change and the demise of Minoan civilization

A. A. Tsonis
K. L. Swanson
G. Sugihara
and P. A. Tsonis

EXCERPT:

Abstract.

Climate change has been implicated in the suc-
cess and downfall of several ancient civilizations. Here we
present a synthesis of historical, climatic, and geological ev-
idence that supports the hypothesis that climate change may
have been responsible for the slow demise of Minoan civi-
lization. Using proxy ENSO and precipitation reconstruction
data in the period 1650–1980 we present empirical and quan-
titative evidence that El Nino causes drier conditions in the
area of Crete. This result is supported by modern data analy-
sis as well as by model simulations. Though not very strong,
the ENSO-Mediterranean drying signal appears to be robust,
and its overall effect was accentuated by a series of unusually
strong and long-lasting El Nino events during the time of the
Minoan decline. Indeed, a change in the dynamics of the El
Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) system occurred around
3000 BC, which culminated in a series of strong and frequent
El Nino events starting at about 1450 BC and lasting for sev-
eral centuries. This stressful climatic trend, associated with
the gradual demise of the Minoans, is argued to be an impor-
tant force acting in the downfall of this classic and long-lived
civilization.
