We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Our Climate, Scumpism is Denialism

Information

Our Climate, Scumpism is Denialism

Where we share information on climatology and the changing Earth's climate.

With of course a special thought for deniers and those who would profit from denial.

Global Warming Animation of the Day

Interesting correlation between free-market believers and climate change deniers. But not a surprise: climate change demonstrates the failure of the "benevolent" free-market.

Free market = unbridled instincts (and imagination.)

Gee…Deniers More Likely to Be Conspiracy Nuts. Go Figger.

Well, hit my head and call me shorty…..Who could’ve seen this coming?

Medical Express:

More than 1000 visitors to blogs dedicated to discussions of climate science completed a questionnaire that queried people’s belief in a number of scientific questions and conspiracy theories, including: Princess Diana’s death was not an accident; the Apollo moon landings never happened; HIV causes AIDS; and smoking causes lung cancer.

The study also considered the interplay of these responses with the acceptance of climate science, free market ideology and the belief that previous environmental problems have been resolved. The results showed that those who subscribed to one or more conspiracy theories or who strongly supported a free market economy were more likely to reject the findings from climate science as well as other sciences.

The researchers, led by UWA School of Psychology Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, found that free-market ideology was an overwhelmingly strong determinant of the rejection of climate science. It also predicted the rejection of the link between tobacco and lung cancer and between HIV and AIDS. Conspiratorial thinking was a lesser but still significant determinant of the rejection of all scientific propositions examined, from climate to lung cancer.

It's about time someone started a Climate group. I've been thinking about doing so for a long time. I don't know why I didn't.

Thanks for starting it Michel.

Humans predicting the weather

September 10, 2012 to Statistics by Nathan Yau

Nate Silver says the weatherman is not a moron.

Still, most people take their forecasts for granted. Like a baseball umpire, a weather forecaster rarely gets credit for getting the call right. Last summer, meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center were tipped off to something serious when nearly all their computer models indicated that a fierce storm was going to be climbing the Northeast Corridor. The eerily similar results between models helped the center amplify its warning for Hurricane Irene well before it touched down on the Atlantic shore, prompting thousands to evacuate their homes. To many, particularly in New York, Irene was viewed as a media-manufactured nonevent, but that was largely because the Hurricane Center nailed its forecast. Six years earlier, the National Weather Service also made a nearly perfect forecast of Hurricane Katrina, anticipating its exact landfall almost 60 hours in advance. If public officials hadn’t bungled the evacuation of New Orleans, the death toll might have been remarkably low.

I like the bit later in the article that describes the number crunching machine and how humans are involved in the analysis. The National Weather Service has heavy-duty computing power to process data coming from weather stations across the country, but the computer is still bad at doing a lot of things.

To most people, statistics means plugging numbers into an advanced calculator that spits out values, without much thought involved. Those people don't work with data.

The evidence for rapid climate change is compelling:


 


Republic of Maldives: Vulnerable to sea level rise

Global sea level rose about 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.
