Scientists Studying Climate Changes in Central Oregon

Here in Central Oregon, scientists are studying the impact of climate change on our region.

Central Oregon Daily’s Curtis Vogel looks at the efforts of scientists to keep up with the effects of the chaotic and rapid changes in our ecosystems, and it all starts with a tiny member of the rabbit family.

    There can be no measurable changes. “Climate Change” is just too tiny. The whole “Global Warming” … the natural portion AND the (supposedly) Mann-caused portion … is calculated to be just 0.15% of the incoming solar energy. It is not just small, it is tiny. It cannot be measured; it is inferred from (insufficient) measurements across decades, or, is calculated by computer models. The inaccuracies in the measurements are many, many times larger than the supposed ½W per metre squared. For example, take the Earf’s albedo … the proportion of sunlight reaching the planet, that gets reflected by clouds, ice, snow, etc. The albedo reflects about 100 W/m^2 … but, it is “known” to an “accuracy” of ±4 W/m^2 … that is about four percent … but the whole “Global Warming” is just ½W, 0.15% of the incoming energy.

    The numbers do not add up.
