NONSENSE. And one of our bivalve “friends” from the South China Sea proves it. The more the global warming Nazis try to polish this turd, the browner and smellier it gets.
Who to believe ? The Gorons, led by a KNOWN liar, the Fraudacle himself, or samples taken from a giant clam? At LEAST we know the clam does NOT lie. From Anthony Watts at wattsupwiththat.com
Hottest year ever? Giant clam reveals Middle Ages were warmer than today.
Anthony Watts / January 5, 2015
While government, science and media begin the ramp-up to claim 2014 as the “hottest year ever” the South China Sea’s biggest bivalve shows that the Middle Ages were warmer than today, when Carbon Dioxide was lower.
From the Chinese Academy of Sciences:
Two recent papers, one is in Earth-Science Reviews and the other is in Chinese Science Bulletin, have studied key chemical contents in micro-drilled giant clams shells and coral samples to demonstrate that in the South China Sea the warm period of the Middle Ages was warmer than the present.
The scientists examined surveys of the ratio of strontium to calcium content and heavy oxygen isotopes, both are sensitive recorders of sea surface temperatures past and present. The aragonite bicarbonate of the Tridacna gigas clam-shell is so fine-grained that daily growth-lines are exposed by micro-drilling with an exceptionally fine drill-bit, allowing an exceptionally detailed time-series of sea-temperature changes to be compiled – a feat of detection worthy of Sherlock Holmes himself.
By using overlaps between successive generations of giant clams and corals, the three scientists – Hong Yan of the Institute of Earth Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Willie Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and Yuhong Wang of Fudan University, Shanghai – reconstructed a record of sea-surface temperature changes going back 2500 years.
The Roman and Mediaeval Warm Periods both showed up prominently in the western Pacific and East Asia. Sea surface temperatures varied considerably over the 2500-year period.
Changing patterns of winter and summer temperature variation were also detected, disproving the notion that until the warming of the 20th century there had been little change in global temperatures for at least 1000 years, and confirming that – at least in the South China Sea – there is nothing exceptional about today’s temperatures.
Dr. Yan said: “This new paper adds further material to the substantial body of real-world proxy evidence establishing that today’s global temperature is within natural ranges of past changes.” Dr. Soon added: “The UN’s climate panel should never have trusted the claim that the medieval warm period was mainly a European phenomenon. It was clearly warm in South China Sea too.”
As we have discussed often here at the ol’ blog, it seems as if every week we are finding out more FACTS that dispel the notion of man-made global warming being WORSE than at any other time in history.
From doctored data, to outright fraud, to facts being IGNORED by the global warming Nazis, their agenda becomes more clear than ever. It is SOLELY about government control, and financial gain and lowering standards for ALL people, except THEM.
We can only hope MORE real scientists speak out in the coming year to once and for all RID ourselves of these charlatans intent on enriching themselves, or acquiring more power for themselves, based on LIES. Such as those promulgated by the Regime, the U-frigging-N IPCC criminals, and down to the hucksters such as Gore, who wouldn’t know the TRUTH if it bit his ass.
Maybe, after Al is done with the polar bear census, he could pay a “visit” to Clarence The Giant Clam, who MIGHT mistake him for a slimy eel, and “open up for Chunky”.
CLYDE. Believing bivalves over big mouths ANY day.
