Videnskabelig arrogance

Nogle kommentarer/spørgsmål om modeller fra Real Climate, hvor Gavin Schmidt, med - vist ikke ukendt - uforskammethed og arrogance, prøver at jorde den person, der formaster sig til at stille nogle relevante spørgsmål:

If the models were to be shown to be specifically deficient in some area and need significant rework what impact would you see that having on the thousands of papers that have relied on them to this point and of climate science in general?

[Response: And if the moon were made of green cheese, what impact would that have on space science in general and on the astronauts who walked on it? Please don't play games. - gavin]

Gavin says "And if the moon were made of green cheese, what impact would that have on space science in general and on the astronauts who walked on it? Please don't play games. – gavin"
Whether the recent discovery of a possible deficiency in the models turns out to be significant or not, this is a legitimate question to be asked and answered. Think of it as disaster mitigation needed for science. We do it for business, I don't see why science should be exempt when science has tied itself more closely with results based funding than ever.

[Response: Coyly hinting at some super-secret deficiency you think you've discovered or read about, but not actually saying what it is, is just playing games. If you want to talk about something specific, do so. - gavin]

It looks like me being specific was just moderated into oblivion. Sooner or later we're likely going to have to deal with the point I raised and I think it would be better to do it in a planned controlled fashion rather than in damage control.

[Response: Spare us. Models are used because they work, not because they are some pure deified output of our reasoning. No supposed deficiency takes away from the already demonstrated skill - how could it? Can they be better? Sure, but your imaginings of some huge looming crisis is simply fantasy. - gavin]

Gavin says – "Can they be better? Sure, but your imaginings of some huge looming crisis is simply fantasy. – gavin"
This is why I've explicitely tried to dissassociate this discussion from any work on models.
So am I to assume that you dont think it would be a worthwhile discussion because you believe that the models will always be "valid" no matter what is discovered about them or the earth's climate processes in the future?
And consequently any papers that use today's models and come to conclusions based on the model's results are equally going to be always valid into the future?

[Response: That is a ridiculous false dilemma, implying that if I think that models have been skillful, they therefore must be perfect and, presumably, incapable of improvement. What is wrong with 'yes, models have been shown to be skillful, and yes, they can be improved, and will be in the future'? Obviously, this means that some results from today might be changed, but as I stated, where models have already shown skill, that doesn't go away. And where models support conclusions from data, that isn't going away either. So climate sensitivity is still around 3 deg C. Sorry. - gavin]

Ovenstående korrespondance hos Real Climate, bliver refereret hos Judiht Curry, der har artikel om ny teori af:

Makarieva, Gorshkov, Sheil, Nobre, Li:
Where do winds come from? A new theory on how water vapor condensation influences atmospheric pressure and dynamics

Curry slutter sin (introduction til Makarieva) artikel med:

"I guess my interaction with Makarieva "counts" as interacting with a skeptic, since I encountered her on a skeptical blog and she is challenging the status quo. If this is the kind of thing that I shouldn't be doing according to the IPCC "in crowd" (see here), then the climate field is in a great deal of trouble."

Spot on!

Og Hvad der er interessant er også at Jutidh Curry - på Scientific American - sætter spørgsmåltegn ved den manglende reele dialog på klima området:

- Dog havde Scientific Amarican lig plastret en læserundersøgelses-popup over artiklen der lige kommer til at skrive af CO2 medfører global warming, tehe. Den kom i hvert fald da jeg fulgte linket.

Men selv om der (hvilket jo er opmuntrende) har været artikel om hende i Scientific American kan Roger Pielke jr. på sin blog oplyse:

"Almost a year has passed since the release of the East Anglia emails. And despite all that has happened, there are some repeated indications that the climate science community just doesn't get it. One example can be found in Michael Lemonick's apologia delivered in response to criticisms from climate scientists aghast that he would give the "crank" Judy Curry a forum in Scientific American. Curry is a professor at Georgia Tech, and a widely published and well-respected atmospheric scientist (at least in most circles)."

"Have these guys learned nothing? It seems that way."

Selv journalisten, der skrev artiklen, sørger for at være dækket ind, -han skulle jo nødig blive uvenner med, eller regnes for at være dissident af "det gode selskab"...

Og lige mens jeg skriver dette, er der i P1's morgenradio indslag om "klimaskeptikerene" i USA, der modtager "kæmpe summer" fra de store olieforurenende virksomheder til støtte i valgkampagnen til midtvejsvalget.
Så den kritiske (ensidigt) undersøgende journalistik herhjemme fortsætter for fuld, fuldere, fuldest udblæsning....

- faderen ytrer sig også om behandlingen af Ms. Curry i Scientific American:

Misleading Text In A Scientific American Article That Judy Curry Is A "Climate Heretic"

"If the IPCC is dogma, then count me in as a heretic."

Judith Curry reagerer:

I'm having another "Alice down the rabbit hole" moment, in response to the Scientific American article, the explication of the article by its author Michael Lemonick, Scientific American's survey on whether I am a dupe or a peacemaker, and the numerous discussions in blogosphere.

Jeg havde dette indlæg i emnet "bemærkelsesværdige citater" :

"Efter vores mening, gør Daniel Greenberg's boganmeldelse af "The Climate Fix" af Roger Pielke Jr., jeres læserskare en bjørnetjeneste, ved at besudle integriteten af klimaforskningssamfundet"

Skriver Michael Mann, Paul Ehrlich and Sefan Rahmstorf i brev til Nature efter at Daniel Greenberg har anmeldt Pielke jr.'s bog The Climate Fix positivt i Nature.

Således fortsætter disse klimaforskere hetzen mod dem, de opfatter som "dissidenter"! Mon disse udfald tjener dem i længden - især efter climate-gate?

Jeg synes det passer godt i denne tråd, så her er det videre forløb:

Daniel Greenberg reagerer på Mann, Ehrlich, and Rahmstorf´s udfald mod ham i Nature:

Han skriver til Roger Pielke jr.:

"Roger, Re my stirring experience of jousting with Mann, Ehrlich, and Rahmstorf: What a scurrilous bunch. My sympathy to you and anyone else who has to deal with them. They're gravediggers of science. Nature will soon publish my riposte and, I think, a disclaimer of any ties to me by the Marshall Institute. Below, my further exchanges with the low-life trio.

Best regards, Dan"

Her er brev til de tre:

Dear Professors Mann, Ehrlich, and Rahmstorf,

Your correspondence concerning my review of Roger Pielke's book "Climate Fix" has provided me with a deeper understanding of the widespread public skepticism toward climate science. In your hands, apple pie and motherhood would come under public suspicion. Have you considered taking a remedial reading course? Can you comprehend the difference between a book reviewer's own beliefs and the reviewer's presentation of the beliefs expressed by the author of the book under review? Apparently not. Furthermore, your insinuation of an undisclosed relationship between me and a conservative think tank is preposterous. In 2006, I participated in a panel discussion sponsored by the Marshall Institute---as I have done with numerous other organizations, including the Brookings Institution, RAND, AAAS, and various academic societies and universities. Common practice for journalists. Nor did I, as you allege, write a report, or anything, for the Marshall Institute. The panel's words were transcribed and published by the Institute. I wrote nothing for them. You guys are the devil's gift to the Tea Party and other climate-change wackos.

Sincerely, Dan Greenberg

Gavin. Schmidt fortsætter sin færd mod bl.a. Jutdith Curry, Roger Pielke Jr. og Svensmark.

Meget subtilt skrevet, må man sige...(har ikke så meget tid til at kommentere det næste stykke tid heller...) Men han får da nævnt, at de må føle sig underkendte og misforståede og kæmper en ensom kamp for deres sager og nærmest opfatter selv som (miskendte) revolutionære...!

Så den dogmatiske afdeling indenfor konsensus klimaforskningen skyder igen og rammer hvem?

Og rick_uk nævner fortsat Judith Curry i diverse indlæg - at hun jo går ind for det grundlæggende, hvilket jeg, i hvert fald, efterhånden har nævnt at hun gør adskillige gange, her på klimadebat, men han glemmer så lige at indbefatte, at hun også i den grad er (blevet) kritisk over inderkredsen (hardcore konsensus dogmatismen) altså eksperterne (?) hos IPCC.

Men det er måske, fordi hun i virkeligheden føler en slags minsundelse???
