a decade in which I shall be participating on ClimateAudit a lot Apart from it being much quicker than the old system everything else seems worse to me I have a 1024 pixel width screen and the top of many articles is now unreadable as the left sidebar enroaches across it The use of subthreads within articles makes it harder to come along and browse at the recent action The organization of recent comment links now gives precedence to date time rather than the old method which seemed to be up to 5 links for each article so articles with low but positive response rates could remain visible I may now have to bookmark articles because I can t rely on them remaining accessible at the right sidebar I preferred the old style straight numbering system but that s just a WIBNI I note that WUWT does not seem to suffer from the same problems so I would guess that they can be fixed with some effort Until then that is probably where I shall graze with an occasional look in here Rich Steve I dislike

Audit blog I ve been impressed with the critiques of various temperature measurements and the adjustments involved in assessing the truth about global warming past and future However I haven t noticed any discussion of the problems with the purported link between anthropogenic green house gas AGHG emissions and global warming I have therefore respectfully submitted the following for your consideration My apologies if this is old stuff An August 2007 Scientific America article The Physical Science behind Climate Change discusses this issue It claims to be The Undeniable Case for Global Warming from AGHG emissions I found the arguments far from Scientific and Undeniable The SA article conclusions were based on computer model simulations of global temperatures with and without forcing effects from AGHA They noted significant differences between the w o AGHG natural forcing model predictions and their measured global temperatures dating back to 1980 They attributed these differences to the lack of AGHG effects in the natural forcing model The 2007 IPCC report based on a similar analysis included the following in their summary report Observed patterns of warming and their changes are simulated only by models that include anthropogenic forcings The differences between the natural forcing model predictions and measured global temperatures were used to determine AGHG forcing functions for their final climate prediction model Their analysis resulted in AGHG forcing effects on global temperatures 10 times that from variations in the sun s solar activity The resulting computer simulation is the basis for predicting the catastrophic effects of increasing AGHG on global warming This relative insensitivity to solar activity was refuted by a Danish National Space Center report by Henrik Svensmark and Eigil Friis Christensen The persistent role of the Sun in climate forcing It concludes with the following The Sun still appears to be the main forcing agent in global climate change Increasing the forcing effect of solar variations in the computer model reduces the temperature discrepancies and the need to assign any significant effect to AGHG The resulting model would therefore minimize the effect AGHG emissions on future global temperatures and the need to limit these emissions Bill Hirt wjhirt yahoo com barry Posted Apr 19 2012 at 3 41 AM Permalink

claim that power of clouds decking or power of clouds radiation forcing are easily measurable by satellites whereas power of CO2 radiation forcing is out of measurable range I base my claim usually on Dr Spencer who measures cloud effects while he uses only estimation of CO2 effects as he cannot positively detect it They tell me my arguments are refuted with this paper http ams confex com ams Annual2006 techprogram paper 100737 htm Could any expert clarify me whether I am right or not Bill Hirt Posted Mar 20 2010 at 6 30 PM Permalink Reply Climate Audit com As a new visitor to the Climate Audit blog I ve been impressed with the critiques of various temperature measurements and the adjustments involved in assessing the truth about global warming past and future However I haven t noticed any discussion of the problems with the purported link between anthropogenic green house gas AGHG emissions and global warming I have therefore respectfully submitted the following for your consideration My apologies if this is old stuff An August 2007 Scientific America article The Physical Science behind Climate Change discusses this issue It claims to be The Undeniable Case for Global Warming from AGHG emissions I found the arguments far from Scientific and Undeniable The SA article conclusions were based on computer model simulations of global temperatures with and without forcing effects from AGHA They noted significant differences between the w o AGHG natural forcing model predictions and their measured global temperatures dating back to 1980 They attributed these differences to the lack of AGHG effects in the natural forcing model The 2007 IPCC report based on a similar analysis included the following in their summary report Observed patterns of warming and their changes are simulated only by models that include anthropogenic forcings The differences between the natural forcing model predictions and measured global temperatures were used to determine AGHG forcing functions for their final climate prediction model Their analysis resulted in AGHG forcing effects on global temperatures 10 times that from variations in the sun s solar activity The resulting computer simulation is the basis for predicting the catastrophic effects of increasing AGHG on global warming This relative insensitivity to solar activity was refuted by a Danish National Space Center report by Henrik Svensmark and Eigil Friis Christensen The persistent role of the Sun in climate forcing It concludes with the following The Sun still appears to be the main forcing agent in global climate change Increasing the forcing effect of solar variations in the computer model reduces the temperature discrepancies and the need to assign any significant effect to AGHG The resulting model would therefore minimize the effect AGHG emissions on future global temperatures and the need to limit these emissions Bill Hirt wjhirt yahoo com barry Posted Apr 19 2012 at 3 41 AM Permalink Reply There s a bit of contention at WUWT that the source code for MBH98 was eventually released This post of yours was pointed to as being the final word on the matter http climateaudit org 2005 08 02 mbh98 source code status report but that s 7 years ago Steve M can you confirm if the original code was released and where it may be accessed Is there a more recent update post here that addresses the issue of accessibility
