Question of the Week / Re: QotW: 19.07.29 What causes monsoon rain and will global warming affect it?« on: 14/11/2019 09:30:04 »
Why is exactly then GW seen in a negative limelight?You are exactly right. See diagrams in my post. In figure 3, the period about 52 million years ago is called the Eocene Optimum. It was a very warm, moist, period when life on earth flourished. Hence the term "optimum". The worse recent period for life on earth was during the depth of the last glaciation just over 70,000 years ago. Volcanic eruptions combined with solar cycles to nearly wipe out the human race. Reducing the human population to about 20,000 brave souls. Tropical rainforests like the Amazon were about 10% of current size during this severe glaciation. Much of earth's area was essentially desertified because the combination of cold and low precipitation weren't good enough to keep plants alive.
Q: Why is warmth seen in a negative light?
A: Because careerist climate modelers have to sell their worthless product somehow. Their models cannot predict climate so they predict gloom. Modelers keep their jobs as doom-mongers because humanity are gluttons for punishment. Our toff, public school, establishment sell this to the public as it both satisfies their better than thou self-image, their contempt for the fossil fuel guzzling lower orders. All the while keeping those most incompetent of scientists - climate modelers - on a secure career trajectory.
