The Profound Junk Science of The Climate

Published on January 8, 2022Written by The Heartland Institute

Climate change prophecy hangs its hat on computer climate models, yet these models have gigantic problems.

Kevin Trenberth, who was once in charge of modeling at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, has stated “[None of the] models correspond even remotely to the current observed climate [of the Earth].”
Despite the fact that models can’t properly model the Earth’s climate, we are supposed to believe that if carbon dioxide has a certain effect in the models of Earth it will have the same effect on the real Earth.
Money and Confirmation Bias
Climate models are an exemplary representation of confirmation bias, the psychological tendency to suspend one’s critical facilities in favor of welcoming what one expects or desires. Climate scientists can manipulate numerous adjustable parameters in, or tune, the models in order to produce any desired result.
Technically, a good result would be that the climate model output can match climate history. But that good result competes with another kind of good result. That other good result is a prediction of a climate catastrophe. That sort of “good” result has elevated the social and financial status of climate science into the stratosphere.
Once money and status started flowing into climate science because of the disaster its denizens were predicting, there was no going back. Imagine that a climate scientist discovers gigantic flaws in the models and associated projections. That would open the door ending the massive flow of research dollars.
Who would continue to throw billions of dollars a year at climate scientists if there were no disasters to be prevented? Evidence shows, discoverers of flaws are demonized and attacked as as pawns of evil interests: David Legates, Richard Lindzen, Jennifer Marohasy, Roy Spencer, John Christy, Gregory Wrightstone, Tim Ball and Willie Soon, among others, come to mind.
Making Models Fit
Testing models against history and assuming they can then predict the future invites failure.
Failure is almost ensured modelers adds ever more adjustable parameters to enhance the model. At some point, one should ask if we are fitting a model to reality or doing simple curve fitting. Models that have degenerated into curve fitting, lack any serious predictive capability.
A strong indicator that climate models are well into the curve fitting regime is the use of model averaging or ensembles.
The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) averages together numerous models (an ensemble), in order to make a projection of the future. Asked why they do this rather than work with the models that best reflect reality, they assert the ensemble method works better.
This is contrary to common sense.
In truth, various models disagree dramatically with one another about the Earth’s climate, including how big the supposed global warming catastrophe will be.
With the sole exception of the Russian Institute of Numerical Mathematics CM5 model, all the models used by the IPCC predict a catastrophic future.
The Russian model uses low ‘climate sensitivity’. All the others have high ‘climate sensitivity’.
The Russian model matches the observatioons quite closely, while the others predict what is effectively runaway warming.
There is a political reason for using ensembles. In order to receive the benefits flowing from predicting a climate catastrophe, climate science must present a unified front.
Dissenters have to be canceled and suppressed.
If the IPCC were to select the best model or models, dozens of other modeling groups would be left out. They would, no doubt, form a dissenting group questioning the authority of those that gave the crown to one particular model. Using ensembles, every group receives rewards and everyone is encouraged keep the conspiracy against humanity going.
Past as a Problem
Fitting the models to climate history is difficult because climate history is poorly documented or unknown.
There are scientific groups that specialize in examining and summarizing the vast trove of past climate history. Their summaries “improve” on the original data in ways that always seem to support global warming catastrophe.
Tony Heller’s website realclimatescience.com specializes in exposing this tampering with climate history.
Because so much of climate history is unknown, modelers make up the missing history. Each modeling team is free to make up the history that fits its narrative. It would be very surprising if modelers weren’t manipulating their fabricated climates to make their models behave better.
Scientists are always cautioned not to fall in love with a theory or method. If they do, they will lose their objectivity. Facts that support their preconceptions will be celebrated, facts that cast doubt on their love will be ignored or forgotten. But if you spend years, or decades, married to a modeling methodology, divorce becomes less and less likely.
Enter the NAS
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in Washington, DC touts itself as the science advisor to the government.
Their advice has some common threads.
They never criticize the scientific establishment. Also, they always promote spending more money on science. Like the teachers’ unions, they pretend to support the common good but actually promote their constituency’s special interests.
The NAS sponsored a report on the future of climate modeling.
They apparently saw nothing wrong with staffing the study committee with professional climate modelers. The report advocated more money for climate modelers and urged hiring professional public relations people to present results to the public.
‘100 Percent Junk Science’
The purported climate catastrophe ahead is 100 percent junk science.
Recent climate change is not historically unprecedented or extraordinary, nor do measured climate trends show a long-term worsening.
The Earth’s climate has always ‘changed’, and to assume the current modest warming is caused by human activity is beyond ridiculous.
In the unlikely event at climate catastrophe occurs, it will be coincidental that it was predicted by climate scientists.

Flashback 2004: Guardian Said UK In ‘Siberian Climate’ By 2020

Published on January 4, 2022Written by Climate Change Dispatch

The eco-extremists at the liberal Guardian should realize by now that the internet is forever. The outlet freaked out over 17 years ago about a frosty future thanks to a ridiculously inaccurate Pentagon prediction.

The Guardian published a report in February 2004 sounding the alarm bells over a “secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs” and obtained by sister newspaper The Observer.
Here was the harrowing message, according to The Guardian:
“[M]ajor European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020.”

It’s now 2021, and major European cities are still intact and a Reuters’ report this year flushes The Guardian’s frets about a little ice age in Britain down the toilet.
Reuters trumpeted:
“Britain’s climate getting warmer, sunnier and wetter – Met Office.”
Travel website Touropia has an updated report headlined, “25 Best Cities to Visit in Europe.” Even the waterway-dominated Venice, Italy is No. 17 on the list. Ouch.
The liberal Guardian had even gone so far as to propagandize how the world was supposedly going to end up experiencing “nuclear conflict” because of ‘climate change’.
The report flailed in its lead paragraph:
“Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters.”
The propaganda spiraled down the whirlpool of insanity:
“The [Pentagon] document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water, and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.”
The hilarious Guardian prophecy about total eco-Armageddon was that it said the report’s “findings” would prove “humiliating to [President George W. Bush’s] administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists.”
But the only thing “humiliating” about this report was the fact the predictions never panned out, eh Guardian?
The Guardian isn’t the only publication to see major climate scare-porn it peddled go up in flames.
In 1995, The New York Times tried to frighten readers into believing that “most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years,” which would be the year 2020.
Newsflash: The East Coast beaches are also still intact. U.S. News & World Report even ran a report in May 2020 headlined: “16 Top East Coast Beaches to Visit.”

WHEN PROPHETIC MINISTRY IMPACTS EVERY SPHERE OF SOCIETY

PROPHECY AND SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

By Kris Vallotton

30 Nov, 2021

Have you ever come up against a problem that leaves you racking your brain for a solution? Maybe you’ve even found yourself lying awake at night counting all the possible ways to come to a resolution. In a world where we face problems on a regular basis, whether simple and subtle or loud and large, we are all familiar with the sense of dread when they come our way. However, what if instead of dread being the first emotion that we face, we were met with excitement as we anticipated the solution from Heaven that we would receive? I’d propose that when the challenges of life come your way, you have a divine advantage! Through the redemptive power of the cross, you have not only the strength of a redeemed mind, but, you also have access to the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2). When we simply live with a redeemed mind, we disregard and disempower the ability we have to grasp solutions from Heaven and bring them to earth. What I am getting at is for a long time the Church has been really good at teaching and training Believers to think like God (Romans 12). But, we have lacked in teaching and training Believers to think God’s thoughts, also known as spiritual intelligence. What does this look like? Imagine you are walking past your grumpy neighbor that is always rude to you. With a transformed mind, you feel compassion and love for this person as the Bible is clear, “Above all, love each other deeply.” (1 Peter 4:8). However, when you move beyond thinking how God thinks, you can begin to access what He is thinking . In this example, you can ask the Holy Spirit to show you why your neighbor is always rude. You may begin to understand and sympathize with his disposition as the Lord shares with you: “His father was a pastor that preached one thing and lived a completely different way at home. He was abused by his father, and when he sees you, he’s reminded of his father.” Now, you can ask the Lord for a strategy for how you can not just help your relationship with your neighbor, but also help your neighbor heal from his past hurts. There are unique and powerful ways that the Lord speaks to each one of us, giving us access to His thoughts. In this week’s episode of Cultural Catalysts, I have a conversation with Ben Armstrong. Ben is the Director of Prophetic Ministry at Bethel Church who is powerfully transforming culture as he equips and trains Believers to understand the prophetic and the ways God uniquely communicates with us. Ben shares how our dreams are an incredible avenue in which the Lord can speak, share solutions, and strategies with us. This is also a way that we can experience and develop our spiritual intelligence.

5 CHALLENGING QUESTIONS YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO ASK ABOUT THE PROPHETIC—ANSWERED

For the past 16 years I have spent one week of the year gathered together with other prophets and highly prophetic people at the School of the Prophets. When my friend Dano McCollam and I envisioned what we desired this school to look like, we saw prophets from all around the world coming together to pursue the Kingdom of God, creating a healthy prophetic community, and running after the prophetic together as a global family of prophets and prophetesses. It is remarkable how the Lord moves every year with unprecedented revelation and with unparalleled outpouring. Every year School of the Prophets feels like a prophetic family gathering where we laugh with joy, discuss the hard things, and grow in our divine gifting and calling. This past week we did not shy away from much-needed conversations as a prophetic family. Instead, we felt the need to open up time for students to ask the hard questions and discuss the challenging aspects of the call of a prophet. I wanted to share with you some of the questions we discussed this week and how our speaker team answered those tough questions.How do you not have resentment towards leaders that don’t see you from a heavenly perspective?It is important to acknowledge that your offense towards others will keep you from your purpose and destiny. Just think about how the enemy accuses you day and night; he also accuses your friends and family too. The enemy’s goal is to keep you from your destiny and he will use offense to do this. However, the truth is we were forgiven and are required to forgive. In Matthew 5 Jesus says: “Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First, go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.” The point here is that reconciliation is more important than worshiping God; God seems to care a lot about people being reconciled. -Kris VallottonWhat are some distinctions you see in this next generation of emerging prophets?I believe that we are moving from those that are identifying the problems to those that are identifying the solutions. I do believe that we are fully exploring what it means to fully be a new covenant prophet. I also believe that we are moving from prophetic celebrities to communities. I believe this is a season of the saints, we are moving from demonstrating the prophetic to training the saints in the prophetic. -Dano McCollamI would propose we are moving from a ministry to the saints to a ministry of the saints. I think sometimes we think that the prophet or prophetess has the more accurate words, but I think we are seeing that those with the gift of prophecy but not necessarily the calling have just as accurate prophetic words. -Kris VallottonI think this generation has become the generation of influence and they are looking for the authentic and very real Jesus. There has been so much diversification in the streams of spirituality that our generation has become quite lost and they are starting to realize they cannot move without the power of Jesus. -Hayley BraunDoes being called to be a prophet mean that one day I will have a big ministry platform?The amount of people who follow you on Twitter does not mean you will have a large influence. Some of the most powerful prophets in the Bible did not even have a public ministry. Think about Nathan and Gad. Their whole call was to direct David — they were specifically assigned to one person. Nathan called David back to righteousness when he had committed adultery. I believe some prophets have been called to one person or one small area. If God gave it to you that is the most powerful thing you will do. – Kris VallottonIf I am called as a prophet how do I find a spiritual or prophetic mentor?I think it’s important to acknowledge the best mentor for you might not be a prophet. Sometimes you are looking for someone like you and oftentimes the mentor you need is someone that can lend to your weakness or where you need strength. The best mentor I ever had in worship could not sing or play an instrument. But, he knew how to lead people and he knew how to read the Spirit. -Dano McCollamI think sometimes we miss a whole demographic of mentors. A lot of times, moms and dads are running already and are active. What we miss out on are the grandmothers and grandfathers who have lived a lot more life, have a lot more wisdom, and history with God. How many of you know it is easier to receive correction from grandparents, but with moms and dads you feel a need to fight back or prove a point?
-Ben ArmstrongHow do you differentiate between pleasing men versus growing in favor with man?There is a very real opportunity to pick between pleasing and growing in favor and I think a lot of it has to do with our hearts and where we put our trust. If our goal is to use our freedom to serve ourselves we will begin to become manipulative. Any promotion in the body is a promotion into servanthood; Jesus modeled that by washing the disciple’s feet. We must keep our hearts in check before the Lord.
-Hayley Braun When I catch myself needing something from prophetic ministry — needing to be right, having a good word, or receiving esteem back — I know I am performing. If I begin to feel the pressure to perform I take a moment to readjust and lean back into His love. Love is the river that spiritual intelligence flows from in the first place. It comes down to the source and the motive.
-Dano McCollamIf you were unable to join us at the School of the Prophets this year but are eager to accelerate your prophetic calling, it’s not too late! You still have the opportunity to access all of the sessions and powerful moments that happened this week. Prophets and prophetesses just like you walked away touched by God, surrounded with a prophetic community, and accelerated in their prophetic calling. I believe this is available to you as well. My prayer is that you would encounter the Lord through the teachings and be accelerated in your own prophetic gifting and call. Learn and be activated through video and audio teachings, activations, and more from speakers like Kris Vallotton, Dano McCollam, Bethany Hicks, Ben Armstrong, and Hayley Braun.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU LIFE SKILLS NOT JUST MINISTRY SKILLS

We were made to have connection and community; the need has been built into our DNA. God created Adam and with no time wasted created his partner Eve — that they wouldn’t be alone was part of God’s original design. On my journey in becoming a prophet, I noticed my lack of prophetic community. It was extremely challenging to not have a company of prophets surrounding me!. Not only because I felt alone in my process, but because there was actually a deep need to be surrounded by other prophets and be sharpened by my peers. Along my journey, I began to meet other prophets and recognized the immense enrichment this brought to my calling. My good friend and prophet Dano McCollam has been an incredible leader in cultivating and stewarding a prophetic community. If you have followed my ministry for very long you may know of Dano because he and I founded the School of the Prophets together over 16 years ago. When I met Dano he did not consider himself a prophet even though I saw it written all over him. Dano explains that he counted himself out of being a prophet because he had a preconceived idea of what a prophet was supposed to look like. He had placed the role of a prophet in a box without realizing there are many different shapes and sizes in the call of a prophet; every prophet’s assignment and calling is unique. Now Dano is an acknowledged prophet, teacher, and leader with a unique and diverse prophetic ministry scaling beyond the four walls of the Church that impacts society in very practical ways. He has founded the ministry
Prophetic Company that trains, equips, and provides a healthy prophetic community for prophets and prophetic people all around the world. Dano has been a continual support, strength, and significant voice in my calling and life. I am excited to share with you a conversation I had with him this past week on the call of a prophet, cultivating prophetic community, and our ability to train people in the prophetic.(You can listen to my whole conversation with Dano here)How did you know you were called to the office of a prophet? You told me, Kris! I remember you called me up and asked me if I wanted to start an intensive training school for prophets. I told you I am not a prophet, but I have a few things I could teach on at the conference. It was actually not until the second year of the conference that the call on my life became very clear to me when another prophet called me out from the stage. He began to explain to me what my ministry was, and acknowledged me as a prophet. I think it was initially hard for me to adopt the idea that I was called to the office of a prophet because I had a preconceived idea of what a prophet was and I counted myself out because I did not look like that. I realized that there are different flavors of prophets with different calls and assignments on their lives. I began to realize the idea that I had in my head was not actually what the call of a prophet was. I had thought a prophet’s whole ministry was based on judgments and filtered through doom and gloom. But, then I heard you speak on the difference between an
Old Testament and a New Testament prophet. I began to realize that a New Testament prophet’s ministry was of reconciliation — while yes, we believe in warnings, judgments are not in line with reconciliation. You have developed a global prophetic community. What inspired this and how have you seen this impact the world? Yes, about seven years ago I saw a shift in the prophetic — I heard the Lord say, “We are shifting from building prophetic celebrities to prophetic communities.” Now what I mean by that is from now on prophets would equip the saints in the gift of prophecy so that prophetic communities would begin to flourish. It became apparent through scripture that the healthiest times in the Bible were when there were prophetic communities. There are multiple examples of this from Elijah and Elisha who went to Bethel and said we should stay here since there are other prophets. We saw in 2 Samuel 20 that there was a group of prophets prophesying and anyone that came into their atmosphere also received a grace to prophesy. It is obvious that prophets are meant to live in a company of prophets. Is teaching and training people how to prophesy Biblical? Yes, there is no doubt that training prophets and prophetic people is Biblical. It is the prophet’s responsibility to equip the saints (Ephesians 4:11-13). How does a prophet do this? He teaches and trains others to prophesy; to walk in the gift that has freely been given to them through the power of the Holy Spirit. No, prophets cannot give the gift of prophecy, but they can help facilitate the gift. One of the greatest examples of this was King David’s 24/7 prophetic training in worship school (1 Chronicles 25). The whole emphasis was to train people how to prophesy with their voices in songwriting and with instruments. As Believers, we know in part and see in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). When we live in community we have a greater and clearer view of what God is saying. When we talk about the School of the Prophets and training prophets we are talking about training people to recognize the voice of God. The challenge is never to get God to speak; He is always speaking. The challenge is recognizing it and choosing to obey. The Lord does not speak one-dimensionally; we must learn the multidimensions in which He speaks. The rate of your obedience determines the rate of your acceleration, but if you are not aware of how He speaks it makes it more challenging to respond quickly. The point of prophetic training is to learn to recognize the voice of God so we can respond quicker in obedience and with prophetic training we receive protocols that leave room for accountability that ultimately provide a healthier prophetic community. What are prophetic finders?I felt the Lord as me: “Dano, what would prophecy look like as a life skill and not just a ministry skill?” I began to pursue ways that we can use the prophetic for non-Church-related needs. In the exploration, I began to have a burden for missing children. I remembered that in 1 Samuel 9-10 they called in the prophet Samuel when they were missing donkeys. The mandate of Jesus Christ is that He came to seek and to save that which is lost; not just who is lost, but that which is lost. Therefore, there is an anointing for anything and anyone that is lost to be found. We began to experiment with that by praying over missing children’s posters. Someone on our team received information about one of the children that were missing for over two years. The reality of finding a missing child after two years is very rare. We weren’t quite sure what to do with the information that our team member had been given by God, so we just began to declare it. It was so crazy, but two days later that child was found.
This is what led me to speak with the senior leadership team at our church — their son was the police chief who was willing to meet with me. I asked him what it would look like if we were to actually help the police find missing children. He gave us a list of guidelines and protocols, but then told us there are actually two children in our county right now that are missing — one of them has special needs and needs medication in the next couple of hours. We began to pray and ask the Lord for a word, for clues, and insight. One of the girls on our team began to receive clues about where these two children were. She began to describe a green house she saw on a street that starts with J and is somehow connected to someone who claims to be a family friend. Right then and there the police chief called the parents and asked if this was a possible lead. Long story short, yes they had a friend that lived in a green house on a street that started with J, and both children were found within 24 hours. This was the start of prophetic finders and hundreds of circumstances where we have worked with the legal system to find missing people and to help solve crimes. I hope Dano’s stories inspired you and reminded you that there are so many amazing unique and multidimensional ways God is speaking. In closing, my prayer for you is that you become more aware of the creative ways God is communicating with you. May the voice of God in our lives become the leading voice for change in this generation, giving us unique strategies, and creative solutions.
