          Re: The Reference Frame: "Five-sigma proof" of man-made climate change is complete nonsense      Cache   Translate Page      

You have just re-vomited all the totally idiotic fearmongering that the fearmongers pumped into the crappiest media a decade ago.

My attitude is pretty much rigorously rational. There is absolutely nothing dangerous about a 0.15 deg C temperature change a decade, whether this change was usual or unusual before the industrial revolution or not. Our cells start to die at 41 deg C but by sweating, assuming no dehydration, they can tolerate up to 55 deg C external temperature - so we can afford some extra 40 deg C of warming which is clearly almost infinitely far away assuming tiny trends like 0.15 deg C per decade. I don't want any 40 deg C of warming, I find it basically physically impossible - but it *is* the correct order-of-magnitude estimate of the total warming that is connected with any discussion about existential problems.

And I think the 0.15 deg C warming per decade was usual at that time, before the industrial revolution, too, but I don't think that this assumption is really needed for sensible policymaking. 0.15 deg C a decade is just one degree per human lifetime. No person who is currently alive may see any temperature change that would be threatening in any way. In fact, 1 deg C is the resolution of the people's sensitivity to temperature via their skin. So even after a whole lifetime, they will barely *notice*. And from *noticing*, there's a huge path towards "being threatened".

The talk about dangerous feedbacks is just pure religion, and a more idiotic one than any of the classical ones. You are promising some unexpected and sudden catastrophe - that will never come - in the same way as Jehovah's Witnesses predicted the end of the world, except that they have gotten far more careful about 5 failed predictions than you have gotten after 50 failed predictions.

Within the context of Earth, there is demonstrably no "sharp point" in any quantity in which some feedbacks would kick in. In particular, if something special happens above some temperature, like 16 deg C global mean temperature, it can't lead to any abrupt changes because all these effects happen locally or regionally and different regions of the globe have different temperature - even the annual mean temperature. So at most, one gradually changes the percentage of places that experience some feedback. All such changes affect global measures continuously and no risk of "a catastrophe that strikes from the blue sky" is possible.

That's why it's totally safe to "wait" for some actual signs of a dangerous change and none of the changes we're seeing are dangerous - such as the tripling of the warming rate per decade.


The UK currently imports 90% of its natural gas from Russia: does it not make an awful lot of sense from an energy security point of view to invest in renewables?


No, it makes absolutely no sense. First, "renewables" produce a far more expensive electricity than fossil fuels so it's stupid from a purely economic viewpoint. Second, they're also less politically safe. Importing stuff from Russia has never caused problems by itself. On the contrary, it's great to make this - still somewhat poor - nation feel wealthy. On the other hand, paying for renewables makes some truly dangerous crooks in the West and their self-serving and extreme ideology powerful. It would be much safer to kindly ask the Russian secret services to physically remove the crooks behind the renewable industry.


From a pollution perspective, many of the world's larger cities are struggling with smog and acidity,


We in Czechia have gotten rid of almost all the smog and acidity about 25 years ago - while we still get most energy from fossil fuels. These things really have nothing whatever to do with each other. One just places some filters to remove the dust, oxides of nitrogen and sulfur, and a few other things. To conflate carbon dioxide with pollution is downright fraudulent. There is nothing bad about CO2 - it is an odorless, transparent, edible... gas that is vital for plants to grow and that makes them more grow if it is more concentrated.


...why people such as yourself have some reservations.


You're just totally distorting what I say. I don't have "some reservations". I want to immediately stop these self-evident and demonstrable insanities and imprison all the main people who have caused them and benefited millions from them.

Hi Lubos, I acknowledge the fact that me using an African quote, from the Zulus, might have sounded as if I derogarated the power of Czechoslovakia in 1939. In 1939 Czechoslovakia was one of the top economic powers in Europe, number 7 in the whole fucking world from what I read. We also know that it was mainly the Czechoslovakian armour that the Nazi looted from the the occupation that served the Nazis in their first phase of the Russian invasion. But come on, lets face it, she had no fighting chance against a beligerante and crazed infused Nazi regime directed by a beerhall anarcast. You were doomed to get trampled.

As the Portuguese general said: The war is won by the commander that has the last escudo. In 1939 the Germans had the deeper pockets and the result was that you lost, and your people suffered.

Dear Jolly, Germany was considered stronger which is why our leaders didn't doubt they had to surrender (in two waves) as rational folks once the allies fainted away. But the difference was in no way analogous to the ant-elephant difference and you sound rather illiterate if you use this language.

Here you have a table comparing the equipment of the Czechoslovak and German armies in September 1938:

https://www.fronta.cz/dotaz...

The ratio of the numbers was just about 2-to-1 in Germany's favor in pistols, rifles, light and heavy cannons, fighter aircraft, machine guns; there was a tie in mortars, tankettes, observing aircraft. Czechoslovakia had 7-to-1 edge in mountain cannons. Germany only had a clear advantage in automatic guns, marine aircraft, total dominance in infantry cannons, 5-to-1 or 7-to-1 in tanks and bombarding aircraft etc. And Czechoslovakia had the advantage of the mountains with a fortification system that made the defensive side much stronger. Despite some advantages for Germany, Czechoslovakia was a more militarized country per capita, although it may sound counterintuitive now. Since Hitler took over in particular, Czechoslovakia was responsibly arming itself and preparing to be a formidable member of the anti-Hitler alliance (our PM just promised 2% of GDP for army, as Trump wants from NATO, by 2024) - sadly, the only one that still believed in this role in Fall 1938. The populations of the countries were 70 million vs 15 million.

All of this was basically given to Nazi Germany for free between 1938 and 1939 - especially along with the production capacities that were making the Czechoslovak tanks destined to (help a very important role to) conquer France, Poland, and Soviet Union. See
https://www.quora.com/Why-d...

Only afterwards Germany became the formidable frontrunner that was smoothly winning everything up to 1942. It just wouldn't be the same without the Czechoslovak assets.

If Czechoslovaks had the Polish suicidal determination to fight, Germany would be served huge losses that would probably prevent it from occupying France etc. later. (Czechoslovakia could have lost millions of men to achieve that and no one would be grateful to us because they wouldn't know and they wouldn't believe that in the alternative history, Hitler would take most of Europe!) Hundreds of thousands of German troops would almost certainly die before we would lose. Incidentally, the same is true for the 1968 Soviet-led occupation. 500,000 troops invaded us in three waves - again, a clear brute force that left no doubt that our opportunist nation would surrender. However, if something were different and we decided to fight, the communist bastards would blood heavily because our army was quite a force in 1968, too (my father just served his years during the occupation, not that it matters LOL). You know, we were never a pacifist nation (although the mostly defensive character of the army was proven by the actual history), many of the approaches and strengths are similar to Switzerland which is also armed heavily. Switzerland's strong military - along with the mountains - was a reason why Hitler didn't take Switzerland, ever. We just had somewhat lower mountains, somewhat worse international support etc. in 1938, and we were a somewhat bigger problem for him than Switzerland LOL.

In Czechia, the Protectorate of Nazi Germany, as I hinted, "we" lived a relatively happy peaceful and prosperous life during most of the war, unless you belonged to some 50,000 heroes who were executed in various ways (or among 300,000 Jewish citizens who were eradicated).

The ants get trampled when the elephants fight.
You highlighted the movements of the big role players at the top, but did not talk about the day to day struggle of the general population to feed their families the people of Czechoslovakia faced. This was brought home to me by a Dutch Engineer I worked for. I asked him whether his father was a member of the Dutch underground. He replied, my father had his family to feed and spend all his free time scrounging for food in the countryside, cycling miles and miles just to buy a chicken. And a lot of Dutch died of starvation in WWII. The people of Europe suffered unimaginable trauma during the Nazi occupation. We should be so grateful we did not live through that hell.

  • A growing number of countries are banning the Boeing 737 Max 8 from their airspaces and airlines are grounding their planes.
  • The model has been involved in two fatal crashes in five months, the most recent over Ethiopia.
  • The US has not banned the plane. Many other countries have.

This map shows all the countries that have banned the Boeing 737 Max 8, and where airlines have taken their own action.

The mass grounding comes after the plane model was involved in two fatal crashes within five months. The latest, over Ethiopia, killed 157 people on Sunday.

The countries shown above in red are those where government agencies have banned the plane from its airports, and, in some cases, from its airspace altogether.

Orange countries are those where at least one of its airlines has decided to ground the planes voluntarily.

LOL, Jolly, in 1929, Czechoslovakia was about this high, no longer so in 1939, not even 1938. Some top 20 at that time. Lots of countries across the world just grew more quickly in the 1930s. (The small rank of 1929 is partly due to fact that most of non-Europe belonged to a few imperial powers where it was counted. So one still had the British Empire which was obviously bigger than Czechoslovakia in all respects, a few more like that, and then you could already have - much smaller but still mostly competition-free - Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia just needed to trump all the other medium-size European countries, like Austria, Hungary, Denmark, ... and it did.)

Again, I agree with you it would be foolish to resist Germany. It was better for us to relax, collaborate for 6 years, let other nations sacrifice tens of millions of men because it was really the fucking other nations' fault that it had gotten this far, and wait to become winners in 1945. ;-)

When Czechoslovakia was in top 20 by GDP, it was still a different league than today when Czechia is 45th by PPP GDP and Czecho+Slovakia would be 35th if united:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...

That's still much better than at the end of communism when Czechoslovakia was about 75th world's country by the GDP! I think some people underestimate how much communism crippled our economy and not just economy - from 7th to 75th.
