Paths To Knowledge (dot Science)

What is actually real in Objective Reality? How do you know? Now, prove it's real!

Objective Reality is a Harsh Mistress ™ as Hansen, Mann, Jones, Gore, Pachauri, Strong, et. al. are Finding Out The Hard Way

Actual Science vs Faith in Anthropomorphic Global Warming Climate Change

“One of the key features of Hansen’s global warming theory is that the polar regions are supposed to warm much faster than the rest of the planet. The image below is from his classic 1984 paper, and shows that Antarctica is supposed to warm up 6C after a doubling of CO2. If the cooling trend which UAH shows continues, it will take Antarctica a very long time to warm up six degrees.” – [1]

There is very little difference between what Hansen is doing and the old time soothsayers. Sure Hansen has computers with which to ply his magical tricks of math and dead tree entrails are at the core of his “dire doomsday” climate predictions. It’s the same old confidence game just different means of deception.

When a “theory” (actually a hypothesis, well not even that as a hypothesis needs to have proper tests that would falsify it should the tests fail to validate the hypothesis) fails to “connect” with objective reality it’s no longer a theory and it’s repugnant to science call it that. At best it’s a failed hypothesis and more likely just another pile of steaming mind poop that needs to be shoveled into the dust bins of history, just like millions of other failed hypotheses in the meandering progression of hard science.

Objective Reality is a Harsh Mistress ™ and she is very unforgiving.

The current problem with so called climate science is that it’s not a hard science anymore. It’s gone limp with wild agenda driven speculations taken as if they are what is happening in objective reality without the hard science to back it up.

Sure they have instruments and gauges and satellites and what not that can record data so thus it seems like hard science. Unfortunately the instruments is where the tiny bit of hard science in climate science ends. It’s at the point after data collection that the hard goes limp and we end up with the wild agenda driven speculations jokingly and tragically called a “theory” as if it was true.

Objective Reality is a Harsh Mistress ™ as Hansen, Mann, Jones, et. al. are finding out the HARD way.

Keep up the work insisting that climate science become a hard science again with Publicly Open Source Analysis, Auditing and Verification Processes where anyone with the skills can Peer Review and Audit and Verify or Falsify it.

Part of what makes a hard science hard is the rigorous auditing and verification and testing against that harsh mistress of Objective Reality.

A hypothesis or theory is ultimately only a map of objective reality. We need to make sure that we have the best map possible for the climate of Earth in order to ensure or maximize the odds of the survival of our species. Geo-engineering terrorfroming our one Earth based on junk science is not going to achieve that. Hard science that is verified and then verified again hundreds of times is what is needed.

Hansen, you soothsayer of doom, you’re fired.

  1. […] for not ‘believing in’ science, when he should be calling for the heads of those who perverted science to the point where it became a matter of faith over facts.  They are the ones who made us question […]
