I went to a Forum last night featuring candidates for the upcoming election. On leaving the Forum, I pondered on where the PHON candidate had obtained his information from in relation to climate change? Pauline Hanson had made a comment earlier about dinosaurs proving that climate change science is wrong.
While directed at PHON, these comments also apply to other climate change contrarians. The PHON candidate stated the facile comment that climate change has always happened. That is true; but, there is a smidgen more detail about past epochs. Previous epochs do provide an analog for what is currently happening.
Does Pauline et al have the exceptionally sophisticated equipment necessary to assess minute quantities of minerals associated with the end of the Triassic period? The equipment is horrendously expensive and a new development in understanding the makeup of rock samples.
Does Pauline Hanson have satellites to show how the official satellites have shown how less warmth is now escaping from the troposphere to the stratosphere are wrong? (It does). Does Pauline have the knowledge to interpret the data from satellites?
Does Pauline read the around 12,000 studies published each year in journals featuring climate science? Has Pauline conducted experiments that show how radiated infrared does not react with CO2? (It does). What equipment does Pauline Hanson have to take ice cores which display climate over many centuries? Does Pauline go onto glaciers to check her sophisticated equipment that measures ice loss?
Where does Pauline store the pollen collected from previous epochs? Does Pauline find it difficult to store soil samples? Has Pauline ever considered the isotopes displayed by CO2? Has Pauline obtained vast secret financial support from the US National Rifle Association to provide all the sophisticated equipment associated with investigating climate?
I rather doubt her Fish and Chip shop would be large enough for storage of equipment or samples!
In other words, the PHON candidate provided a huge insult to Professional Scientists.
