But, since we are about to discuss (that would be my virtual dialogue with Jim Steele) his claim that there's been no warming in Arctic regions. I thought this blast from the past might make a decent filler, since it includes about the best one minute long proof of the dramatic warming our planetary climate system has gone through these past few decades.
Not all the belly-aching in the world about slightly flawed wildlife studies changes one iota of that geophysical fact! Take a satellite view of the "Amount of old ice in Arctic, 1987-2013"
Here's a reprint of a note/post from May 16, 2014, back in the early days of our acquaintance. And let's be clear it's his writings and claims I'm having my feud with, the man is incidental, in that he's just the lasted incarnation of a proud assortment of political entertainer ready to work for the Republican/Libertarian 'BS The Public Circuit,' rather than serious educators.
And yes, that is exactly what the public global warming dialogue needed. We sure didn't need these past two, three decades worth of intellectual travesty.
Lately I haven't had much time for this, but Mr. Steele smacked me with another one yesterday. After reading his SKEP thread reprinted below and his full article and looking up some stuff I started a response but it's such a gish gallop with the guy, then I got all caught up in an aside now I've run out of time. So I'll just post it over here. Let him know I'm doing my homework and I'll be back.
Steele is reaching back to the seventies, eighty when conditions had been relatively stable, and had been for millennia (even considering the LIA/MWP).
Who's kidding whom? All you're doing is pointing back to your own self-aggrandized claims.
No I haven't rejected any comments from Jim Steele, he just doesn't "lower" himself to offer any. Trust me, I'm looking forward to hearing what he has to say for himself, you bet I'll share.}
PS about those Polar Bears
