Sequence Page 9
After being corrected on the proper use of the term 'troposphere' rather than 'stratosphere' we hear these memorable words:
"...troposphere, whatever. I told you before I'm not a scientist, that's why I don't
want to have to deal with global warming to tell you the truth."
-Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, November 30, 2006
It may be time to get concerned when the scientific community establishes
human-driven climate change as fact and the most powerful politicians
on earth respond by declaring themselves intellectually incompetent.
The big question on everyone's mind these days concerns a hockey stick.
The hockey stick asks the
question, and this hockey stick is
the question, and the question is:
long is hockey season?"
To elaborate: The hockey stick is a data-plot of global temperature
has been fairly stable for some time in the past and with the
industrial age has started ramping up very quickly. The purpose of this
page is twofold:
in some detail why the hockey stick is well-documented scientific
Describe the extent to which the hockey stick is anthropogenic, with
the hockey stick and polar science.
I'd also like to conduct a little "climate study" experiment. Wonder
what I should do?
In order to properly continue with my little Main Sequence I'm going to
spend January through May sitting in on a course on perturbation
theory. Therefore I will proceed with building more of these pages but
only as scaffolding, the subjects to be filled in later.
