Environmentalism is a Religion Complete with Miracles

Spread the love

Such as global warming causing glaciers to shrink even though the local temperatures have NOT warmed.  Robert Tracinski explains here.

BTW, medieval inquisitors called those who did not accept their views “heretics” or “infidels.”  The religion of environmentalism also has heretics and infidels, but they are called “deniers.”

    It’s not religion. It’s not miracles. It is just science.

    I grew up in the era of iceboxes. You would buy a block of ice to put in the icebox.

    The ice would melt, but the temperature in the icebox would not go up. Well, it would go up slightly, but not by very much. The melting ice absorbed most of the heat, and that prevented the temperature in the icebox from rising much.

    Glaciers are doing something similar.

    In the icebox era, you would not use a thermometer to check how fast the temperature was rising. Instead, you would look at how fast the ice is melting as the measure of the amount of heat.

    Scientists are doing the same with glaciers — measuring how fast they are melting as a measure of the amount of heat.

    Neil,

    Global Warming is allegedly determined by calculating temperature anomalies derived from thermometer readings and estimations.

    Are you suggesting that method is erroneous?

    Complete with miracles and, as Neil demonstrates in his comment at 1, like all religions at least some of its adherents are unthinking fideistic zealots.

    Neil, suppose it were demonstrated that the temperature in your icebox remained constant. Anyone who said the ice was melting because the icebox was warmer than it used to be would be considered a fool, an idiot or a liar, no?

    Living for a period in Henan China,( and now in a different part) I can say quite strongly that even the peasant farmers of this region have a more rational grasp on this growing disaster than do many posters here.

    Although corruption is rife throughout the government here, some parts of the beureaucracy work remarkably well. The ward of the Agricultural Dept responsible for water conservation, soil conservation, and addressing issues concerned with Manmade Global Warming, is very well run. The people I have met in this ward are professiona scientists not given to emotion or panick.

    This post by Barry would shock them into disbelief.

    I would call them wrong, rather than the other terms.

    But scientists would not say that ice is melting because the icebox is warmer. They would say that the ice is melting because area outside the icebox (presumably a room in a home) is warmer.

    Similarly, scientists don’t say that the glaciers are melting because the temperature near the glaciers is getting warmer. Rather they say it is due to average temperature of the globe getting warmer.

    The article to which you linked is talking about the temperatures in Glacier National Park. That’s pretty much like talking about the temperature inside the icebox.

    Barry Arrington says:

    Good grief Neil @ 5. Are you really going to go there? You understand that you are now positing that the heat caused by global warming has a non-localized effect. Really? Glaciers in Montana are melting because it is warmer on average in England?

    The article to which you linked is talking about the temperatures in Glacier National Park. That’s pretty much like talking about the temperature inside the icebox.

    Uh, yeah. That’s because the melting ice in your example is in the ice box where temps have remained constant.

    I was half kidding about the whole “unthinking fideistic zealot” thing. I see now that I needn’t have been.

    Which do you prefer, human-caused warming or an ice age that sends all of the earth’s population racing toward the equator?

    Sarah Kramer on glaciologist Brenda Hall:

    “One such effect may be that human-caused warming is delaying an overdue ice age. Hall’s research dated the beginning of the end of the last ice age to 18,000 years ago, but “interglacials” — the periods of relative warmth between glacial periods of an ice age—usually last only 15,000 years, meaning we’re overdue for another cold snap.”

    rvb8 @ 4. Are you going to join Neil and suggest that the heat caused by global warming has a non-localized effect such that warming in other parts of the planet can cause glaciers to melt in Montana where temps have remained constant? Drop a science bomb on us and tell us how that works.

  9. 9
    Neil Rickert says:

    Glaciers in Montana are melting because it is warmer on average in England?

    I certainly would not put it that way.

    The glaciers are melting and it is warmer in England. Both are because there is a build up of heat on the planet. But the temperature in Glacier National Park won’t change much, because the melting glaciers keep it cool.

  10. 10
    Barry Arrington says:

    Neil at 9. Then how would you put it? How does warming elsewhere cause melting in Montana? Again, in order for your assertions to work, ambient temperatures would have to have a non-localized effect. Tell us how that works Neil.

  11. 11
    Neil Rickert says:

    How does warming elsewhere cause melting in Montana?

    The temperature increase is not a cause. It is an effect. The heat buildup is the cause. And the melting of the glaciers, and the warming in other areas are effects of that heat buildup.

    By “heat buildup”, I mean the accumulation of thermal energy.

  12. 12
    rvb8 says:

    Barry @8,

    I like the way one side of this argument remains professional, and not given to emotional outbursts.

    The heat build up due to carbon emmission is trapped by our atmosphere. This leads to increased annual temps worldwide, and smaller glaciers.

    Surely this mean increase in global temps will one day effect Antarctica, hell, maybe even Montana.

    Once again I’ll throw in the related question; what is so wrong with trying to eliminate CO2 emmissions? It’s what is known as a win/win/win achievement.

    A circuit breaker malfunction cut the electricity to my garage freezer, resulting in a meltdown (first in the freezer, second when the wife & I discovered it the next day).

    However, the power was not cut off on our kitchen refrigerator/freezer. The contents of that freezer did not change temperature. Unsurprisingly, there was no meltdown.

    So no, warming & melting ice in one locale does not necessarily entail warming & melting ice in another. Unless, of course, one argues that freezers & glaciers are quantum entangled…

    Bob O'H says:

    The USGS give more details about why the glaciers are retreating:

    Glaciers, by their dynamic nature, respond to climate variation and reveal the big picture of climate change. Unable to adapt, like living creatures, GNP’s relatively small alpine glaciers are good indicators of climate, the long-term average of daily weather conditions. A glacier forms when winter snowfall exceeds summer melting. Glaciers retreat when melting outpaces accumulation of new snow. Despite occasional big winters or frigid weeks that occur, the glaciers of GNP, like most glaciers worldwide, are melting as long term average temperatures increase. Analysis of weather data from western Montana shows an increase in summer temperatures and a reduction in the winter snowpack that forms and maintains the glaciers. Since 1900 the mean annual temperature for GNP and the surrounding region has increased 1.33°C (Pederson et al. 2010), which is 1.8 times the global mean increase. Spring and summer minimum temperatures have also increased (Pederson et al. 2011), possibly influencing earlier melt during summer. Additionally, rain, rather than snow, has been the dominant form of increased annual precipitation in the past century (Selkowitz et al. 2002). Despite variations in annual snowpack, glaciers have continued to shrink, indicating that the snowpack is not adequate to counteract the temperature changes.

    In conjunction with the past century’s long-term temperature increase, ocean-driven climate trends (Pacific Decadal Oscillation of PDO) influence GNP’s regional climate. Tree-ring based climate records reveal PDO effects that have resulted in 20-30 year periods of hot, dry summers coupled with decreased winter snowpack (Pederson et al. 2004). These periods have induced rapid recession, as high as 100 m/yr between 1917-1941, and influence the current rate of recession. Even during cooler phases of the PDO cycle, glaciers have continued to shrink, albeit at a slower rate. Glacier National Park, located in the mountainous region of northwest Montana, is experiencing effects of climate change related to changing snowmelt and precipitation patterns, exacerbating ecological and socioeconomic issues tied to water supply.

    Also note that Pederson et al. 2010 use a different set of stations & find a clear trend. I’m not sure what’s going on here & not all of the data seems to be available.

    Barry, I’m afraid that Neil is correct. For example, fill a bucket with ice and water and let it equilibrate. From that time until after all of the ice has melted, the temperature of the water does not deviate. This physical fact is so well known that it is used to calibrate thermometers.

    As for your comment, no, Neil is manifestly not right. Good grief, what is wrong with you people?

    Neil Rickert says:

    Neil, you have attempted to defend the following proposition: Global warming has caused the glaciers to melt even though there has been no warming in the local area where the ice is actually melting.

    “Warming” is a vague and ambiguous term. I have been trying to express things in terms of “heat” and “temperature” which are more precise. The trouble with “warming” is that it can sometimes refer to an increase of heat, and at other times it can refer to an increase in temperature.

    For ice to melt, requires an increase in heat (i.e. in thermal energy). But it does not require an increase in temperature.

    Temperature and heat are very distinct, defined separately in physics. One measures temperature in degrees. One measures heat in calories.

    The link that you provided, was to an argument that confused heat with temperature.

    The effect of heat on ice is to melt the ice. There will be very little temperature rise until most of the ice is melted. The heat energy all goes toward the melting.

    Google “latent heat ice melting” for more information.

    Barry Arrington says:

    Neil, you still don’t get it. No one is arguing that the glaciers are not melting. They are. They have been for 10,000 years. The issue is whether the melting can be attributed to recent climate change, especially climate change that might have been caused by humans — i.e., global warming. The answer to that question is a resounding “no” for the simple reason that the climate around the glaciers HAS NOT CHANGED. From this we can conclude that whatever is causing the glaciers to melt, it is most certainly not global warming.

    wd400 says:

    The answer to that question is a resounding “no” for the simple reason that the climate around the glaciers HAS NOT CHANGED.

    What is the basis of this claim? Squinting at a graph of daily (?) temperatures where seasonal cycles swingr ~100F does not seem a useful way of assessing a trend.

    It might also be helpful to insert a tiny bit of knowledge about how glaciers work into the discussion. It’s is quite possible for a glacier to retreat (or have its retreat hastened) without the local temperature changing at all. Glaciers retreat when the water added through snow (mostly in winter) is not enough to counterbalance the water lost through melting at the terminus (mostly in Summer). Changes in precipitation or seasonal weather patterns (e.g. earlier springs) can alter the dynamics of glacier growth even as the mean annual temperature remains flat.

    kmidpuddle says:

    If snowfall in the winter exceeds snow melt in the summer, the glacier grows. If the snowfall is less than melt, the glacier recedes. Both of these can happen without and change in annual average temperatures around the glacier. In the latter situation the question is, what is responsible for the lower snowfall?

    mugwump3 says:

    On a mostly curious note, if precipitation, at least in terms of snow pack, is down significantly enough to cause, in conjunction with the heat absorbing property of ice, a recession of a glacier…wouldn’t we expect more cloud cover, a greening of the planet, CO2 and thermal sinks in the the form of forestation? And, wouldn’t more available land exponentiate this feedback as more greening? Where’s the catastrophe? Where’s the rising sea levels, or anomalous non-cyclical temperature increases, desertification, or mass extinctions?

    In short, why is CO2 playing the great and powerful villain in AGW doomsday scenarios, albeit, only if to point the finger at the Anthro behind the curtain? Especially given a complete lack of historical corollation, nevermind causation?

    Given the only demonstrable effect of believing in AGW modeling fiction is a global wealth redistribution largely supported by the “have-not” victims of modern human advancement, why would a skeptic of the dogma ever be compelled by the climate conquistadors?

True, if the thermometer was squeezed between two frozen packages or had been frozen into an ice block, no change would be seen for hours. But the air temp begins to rise. Indeed, no kitchen would ever be able to monitor their freezers without that rise. In fact, we’re also expected to monitor the duration of defrosting intervals based on this truth.

    Secondly, meteorology is the science, and climate change fits witin its boundaries.

    Meterology is unusual amongst the sciences because throughout the ages those trying to predict the weather were the butt of so much mockery and general derision.

    I well remeber the seventies and early eighties when the weather broadcast on the news the night before was the subject of gentle but amused conversation the next day.

    We have come along way, and today forecasts can be quite accurately predicted days, and increasingly a few weeks in advance.

    These scientists today, using the most powerful of super computers are given the herculean task of extrapolating years in advance.

    The amazing thing is that the scientists in this field in all the serious institutions are in agreement about global warming and its future effects.

Their long term investment in environmentally friendly power sources, and technologies is not something these savvy states legislatures will give up.

    More important however is how the multi national companies of the US, so heavily invested in the change of course already begun, have rejected Trump’s Ludditeism.

    More important still is how quicly the EU and China joined hands to increase the speed of defossilisng their economies. Also, how outside these two huge economies, the other countries looked at Trump as if he were some mildly insane narcissist.

Why, they’ll be crawling on hands and knees to fiscally responsible, free market states that saw through the junk science scam that would’ve made even pseudo-science carnival barker, Karl Marx, blush for its complete lack of actual scientific grounding.

    I’m not surprised a science deniar such as yourself espouses this view. However as Trump and his minions slowly wake up to the realisation that the rest of the world does indeed embrace life, they may actually turn their heads around and say, ‘where the hell is our support?’

    Trump won with fewer votes than Hillary, (whom I loath BTW). He has no support from his economic gurus or captains of industry.

    But most imporatant, even if you factor out world opinion (which you obviously have), he is going against the majority of US public opinion, which does indeed support envioronmentalism.
