The Warming is Obvious and so is Joanne’s Denial

Some will have noticed that I have not been posting much lately; why? Well after 80 posts I figure if someone can’t understand how poor Joanne Nova’s “science” is by now, I doubt they ever will.

98% of publishing climate scientists tell us it’s happening, we’re to blame, and the impacts will be serious. Hundreds of scientists from dozens of countries agree that action on reducing emissions is imperative if we are to be serious about reducing the impacts from climate change. If someone wishes to ignore that advice and go with Joanne Nova, blogger and repeater of climate myths, then no amount of reasoning will change for their mind is not open to discussion. So instead of blogging I am now actively speaking out to friends and colleagues and that’s been a very positive experience.

The warming continues and the impacts are already felt clearly around the world. Ocean Heat Content, where 90% of heat is accumulating continues to climb. Here’s the latest update from a few days ago …

Joanne Nova is in denial. She claims that the figures are not correct, but instead of proving this through scientific method, through the rigorous process of publishing her “evidence and method” in an established scientific journal, and have it peer-reviewed by experts in the field, Joanne instead relies on blogging. If you’re one of those people stupid enough to believe anything you read on an internet blog, then nothing I can say will change your mind.

    True indeed. Joanne’s playbook is limited and obvious: you’ve done all that is needed to highlight its deficiencies.

    I just googled “Joanne Nova Denial” and found this post. You are bang on. I started asking difficult questions, like “Please support your claim that OHC is not rising”, she posted links to papers, but the funniest thing was that none of the papers actually supported her claims. I think she believes that her readers are dumb enough not to actually open the citations and read for themselves.

    The stupidest part of all was when she cited Levitus, S., et al. (2012), which is the source of the calculations for the OHC data above! What a nutter!

    What’s more devious about Nova is the way she now blocks my posts. So not only can she not answer the “inconvenient question”, she blocks any attempt to force the issue.
