Climate change means rain is returning to previously drought-stricken areas of Africa exactly 30 years since Live Aid raised £150million to help starving people there, a new study has revealed.
But now research by scientists at the
National Centre for Atmospheric Science at the University of Reading,
has shown how increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which have
caused climate change, have triggered a return of crucial seasonal rains
to the Sahel region.
Etc. And how have they decided this?
The researchers used a supercomputer climate simulator to study different influences on North African rainfall.
Followed by "But the greenhouse gasses are still going to get us! The models say so!"
Allow me to introduce, if you don't already know of him, Freeman Dyson:
What’s wrong with the models. I mean, I haven’t examined them in detail,
(but) I know roughly what’s in them. And the basic problem is that in
the case of climate, very small structures, like clouds, dominate. And
you cannot model them in any realistic way. They are far too small and
So they say, ‘We represent cloudiness by a parameter,’ but I call it a
fudge factor. So then you have a formula, which tells you if you have so
much cloudiness and so much humidity, and so much temperature, and so
much pressure, what will be the result... But if you are using it for a
different climate, when you have twice as much carbon dioxide, there is
no guarantee that that’s right. There is no way to test it.
That's just part of what he has to say on the subject, I'd suggest reading the whole thing. He drives the AGW people up the walls, because they can't claim he's ' not a real scientist'.
So, we now have "Global warming is real, but it's saving people. But it's still terrible, and we need to stop it!" They want their cake AND a replacement.
