“No doubt you will claim I am doing such, in your usual tedious fashion, because we all know you can never be wrong.”
On the contrary, BRI, you’re the one who can never be wrong. What’s more here’s the perfect opportunity to stuff my words down my throat. All you have to do is answer the question that I’ve asked: what is the confidence level of the predictions being made about the SIZE of the impact of man-made global warming? There’s no trick to this. In fact the complete opposite and given all the evidence you claim is out there it should be a piece of cake.
Yet what do we get? A tirade of insults designed to belittle and undermine me. As for the link to the piece about Judith Curry the irony given the question that I’ve asked is extraordinary. The author talks about ‘uncertainty’ around the data Curry’s used because she hasn’t provided confidence levels. It would be laughable were it not so serious.
As for your reference to Zoe Phin, I don’t agree with lots of things she says but the example I used was an excellent expose of so-called ‘climate science’, which you failed to debunk despite claiming otherwise; and claiming that I get ‘answers from blogs’ is just untrue. In fact it couldn’t be further from the truth. I go back to the academic papers and the source data.
I build and use computer models all the time. They’re fantastic for doing all sorts of things but anyone who knows anything about them knows that when it comes to predictions of complex systems with numerous variables they are ALWAYS, 100% completely wrong. The way real science gets around this is to ensure that confidence intervals are provided.
So, BRI’s failed to answer this fundamental question. Given the reward of proving I’m a complete idiot and all the evidence out there I’m sure someone will find it. After all, it shouldn’t be difficult.
