This graph proves it!
That’s right people. This graph trumps everything that has ever been done to provide evidence for anthropogenic global warming. If Anthony Cox, the
climatologist (oops, I keep forgetting that he isn’t despite him once claiming otherwise) secretary for the Climate Sceptics Party says it’s disproven, then it must be so. So, you tens of thousands of climate scientists and all of your national scientific organisations can stop what you’re doing and go and do some real science now. This graph means you’ve been wrong all along…… sigh.
I love a good dodgy graph. I’ve featured a couple from Steve Goddard before. First there was the hairy caterpillar and then this effort. I also featured this one which isn’t dodgy but his choice and analysis were. But really, they pale into insignificance on the dodgy scale when compared to this effort from Anthony Cox. It is a thing of pure beauty.
One must ask why he feels the need to make his own dodgy graph with cherrypicked start and end times when he could quite easily use already published graphs from reputable scientists? …Oh…. I kind of answered my own question there. For what it’s worth, here’s a good graph.
What amazes me though is how these…people… can look at everything that is going on in the world, in terms of natural systems, and still come to the conclusion that AGW isn’t real. To discount these things, they need to come up with explanations, scientific explanations. I would love to know why they think the Arctic is melting?
Why is sea level rising?
How do they explain the latitudinal and altitudinal shifts by tens of thousands of species of plants, animals, fungi and diseases and the changes in phenology that can only be explained by anthropogenic climate change?
Until the Anthony Cox’s of this world can start adhering to the scientific method and provide real data that supports there whacky assertions, they should be treated with the respect they truly deserve..none. These people are unscrupulous in pushing their idiocy and they prey upon the scientific illiteracy of gullible people in order to suit their own ends. In Anthony’s case, it is to garner support for the idiotic Climate Sceptics Party of which he is a member.
