You were attempting to define cherry-picking.

Please.  It's tiome to grow up if you're going to discuss here.

There is clear evidence that Schmidt - your hero - doctored data to mislead the public (that would be you). There are other examples of his deceptions.

This MID is what you base your belief on - known liars.

it is not an ad homin to point out that someone has lied.

If the evidence was in any way clear that AGW was not real - then skeptics would not have to use deception to make their points.

Its time for your to grow up and stop following charlatans.

Answer the simple direct question - has Schmidt cherry picked data to show an increasing sea ice trend when in fact the data clearly shows a declining sea ice trend ? Yes or No.

Br Cornelius

As I say to all foolish CTs, here or elsewherePROVE IT.

I expect no response, as you are foolish and incapable (as are all CTs) of proving their ridiculous contentions.
And you speak to "known liars", anotgher great CT tactic in which their simply saying something, no matter how stupid, is supposed to be perceived as true, simply because you say it.

Prove it....all of it.  

But, aas you know, you can't.

More on Harrison Schmidt;

Quote

Regarding Mark Boslough’s Jan. 25 My View, “Climate-change deniers ignore science,” and in subsequent responses, there was discussion of Harrison Schmitt’s statement in 2009 that Arctic sea ice had recovered to 1989 levels. Since data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center were cited, we feel it worthwhile to clarify the issue for readers.
Sea ice conditions can vary from month to month, but overall we see the continuation of a strong downward trend. You can read our 2009 season analysis at http://nsidc.org/new...minimumpr.html.
While 2009 Arctic sea ice extent did briefly exceed 1989 levels in April and May, it was substantially less than 1989 the rest of the year. The 2009 maximum extent, minimum extent, and annual average extent values were all well below 1989. Based on these facts, it would be incorrect to suggest that 2009 represented a recovery of Arctic sea ice to 1989 levels.
NSIDC posts the most recent data and regularly updated analyses of conditions at _http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/._

And what, pray tell, would a geologists motive be for lying, using deception, etc...and what gives you the idea that he influenced me in some way?

I felt the way I do (which he happens to echo...and wisely) long before Jack resigned from the Planetary society.

Sometimes, the zealots lie to bolster their position.

:yes:
CTs waste alot of time, making statements that are unsubstantiated, as if they're fact, and presuming to "know" when they have no klnowledge at all.

You do that very well.
But I will say this:

You're free to be as unknowledgeable as you like, and to believe (and that's what you do whatever you like.
I judge nothing.  People are free to believe and comment.

And when they fail to substantiate a thing they say, I am free to ignore them...as I do with you.

Have fun with the end of the world.  Al says it's not too far away.

Jack and I will be flying, likely studying why the Moose population is migrating south because of all the snow in Alaska, and how those Polar Bears are thriving up north when they're supposedly dying off due to global warming...

But not until after a truly progressive government is elected and we're actually producing our own oil, and creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and saving our economy by getting people with your mindset out of positions of authority.


I think we're going to have fun...even if you think Jack's a liar (and I'm sure he cares!).


:no:


:w00t: :td:


Oh, and was your post a response to this?

Quote

As a geologist, I love Earth observations. But, it is ridiculous to tie this objective to a "consensus" that humans are causing global warming in when human experience, geologic data and history, and current cooling can argue otherwise. "Consensus", as many have said, merely represents the absence of definitive science. You know as well as I, the "global warming scare" is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making. It has no place in the Society's activities.

No, not rally.


Oh, let me advise you on a key point, in response to another mistake you've made.


You made the cardinal CT mistake wirth me when you spoke about my beleifs and what ionfluences them.


Here's the fact:

YOU BELIEVE...in all the stuff you want to believe in.

I don't believe in anything.
In know things.   I place no conjecture or faith on anything.  I know it, or I don't.

What I know is that I'm in the majority...of scientists and technical people who realize  it's a politically motivated power grab by the present government, and that it's not in any way "science".

Let's try again some truth you chose not to respond to:

Quote

And there we are again, reciting the party line--that somehow, we humans are capable of somehow affecting this amazing planet, and its climate, and of course, can combat the "climate change" that we caused(!), (You know, climate change..that natural Earth process that cycles around in huge segments of time(thousands of generations pass before one cycle completes) , driven by a star that's fairly close by and which represents unimaginable power?).



But you don't have to, because you believe.
I know better.

So does Dr. Schmitt.  he alqYS has.


But then again, we're just charlatans and liars....

Just go back and see how Schmidt reversed the Artctic ice trend from negative to positive. Its clearly shown in that video and I can find a more detailed analysis for you.
Just stop the baseless indignant rethoric and admit that schmidt distorted real scientists work for political motives. This is the quality of science you choose to base your denial of climate change on - its pathetic.

You really cant address a simple fact can you.

Quote


Schmitt submitted a paper to NASA in 2009 which was filled with physical nonsense. In it, he stated, “Artic (sic) sea ice has returned to 1989 levels of coverage.”  ï»¿Mark Boslough, a physicist and computational modeler and an adjunct professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at University of New Mexico, wrote in the Sante Fe New Mexican newspaper:


”I wrote to him, politely pointing out that this was not true, and directing him to the data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (the ice extent in 2009 had not recovered, and as of this writing is at an all-time winter low). He responded, but never made the necessary correction. Anyone can make a mistake, but scientific integrity requires that authors own up to mistakes and fix them.”

Below is the NSDIC Arctic sea ice extentplot that is very well-known because it is well-publicized.  Of course, Schmitt must have looked at this same graph when he made his statement.  Did he not see that well-defined downward trend line? If he did not view the data, then why mention it in his NASA paper?
Posted ImageNSIDC Arctic Sea Ice Extent Downward Trend
Schmitt might also have seen this longer-term plot from NSIDC:
Posted ImageArctic Sea Ice Extent Since 1953
For even more data Schmitt could have viewed this NSIDC page.
The NSIDC’s data clearly shows that Arctic sea ice is decreasing and did decrease between 1989 and 2009 so Schmitt was wrong when he wrote that there was a recovery of Arctic sea ice to 1989 levels.
Schmitt could also have viewed this very-well publicized plot of Arctic sea ice volume:
Posted ImageArctic Ice Volume Trending Downward (PIOMAS)
Or perhaps he could have viewed the image below that shows a decline in Arctic sea ice thickness.  This data includes declassified submarine data since 1958.
Posted Image
In his NASA paper, Schmitt concludes:


”Those who observe the natural, economic, and sociological aspects of climate change see no evidence indicating that human activities have influenced global climate. Actual observations show that climate varies in response to natural forces and that human burning of fossil fuels has had negligible if any effect over the last 100 years.”

Also, in his paper, Mr. Schmitt makes many other claims that are unsupported by fact, including: (Click links for the correct science) Of course, there is overwhelming evidence for human-caused global warming, and that is why there is an overwhelming scientific consensus.
Given Schmitt’s position as a denier of well-understood climate science, it was hardly surprising that Joseph Bast, President of the Heartland Institute, wrote an article (January 31) in the Sante Fe New Mexican calling on Dr. Boslough to apologize to Schmitt.  In that article, Mr. Bast was quite “economical with the truth” - true to form for the Heartland Institute which is no friend of accurate climate science information.
In 2009, Schmitt resigned from the Planetary Society writing:


”The ‘global warming scare’ is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making. It has no place in the Society’s activities.  As a geologist, I love Earth observations. But, it is ridiculous to tie this objective to a ‘consensus’ that humans are causing global warming in when human experience, geologic data and history, and current cooling can argue otherwise.”

Schmitt really distances himself from reality with those statements. If the government wished to control our lives, why would it create a problem that is very difficult to resolve while simultaneously making no movement to enforce that control?  Congress has made no real progress toward an energy policy and we are importing more fossil fuels than ever while increasing our carbon emission rates.  Global cooling?  How does Schmitt think that the hottest decade on record means cooling?  How does global cooling add heat to the oceans and melt surface ice at increasing rates?

Now that Schmitt knows the truth, will he rethink his position, will he retract his claims, and will he apologize to the people of New Mexico for misleading them?

Meteorology from University of Lowell (now called UMass – Lowell). Mandia has been teaching introductory meteorology and paleoclimatology courses for 23 years.

For some debunking of the Heartland Institute’s tortured effort to hide the decline in Arctic ice, see Cook and Peter Gleick who has this nice chart in his post “Misrepresenting Climate Science“:

So what have you got to say about Schmidtt lying about sea ice extent ??

I am frankly bored of your indignant rants I want you to provide some real science to support your ignorant position. Start with Schmidts claim that arctic sea ice is growing.

PS - I note with some considerable amusement that you have started to refer to me as a CT. That would mean that you believe in the vast conspiracy of communist inspired environmentalist plotting to destroy the good old American way.

We have entered the Reds under the bed territory here. I guessed you would eventually reveal your real motives for Denial.

The question is - do you want me to send round the men in white coats before or after your steak dinner :w00t:

do you think that not being able to prove AGW is not real, is proof that AGW is real?
the concept of burden of proof applies to the one who asserts.
is CAGW hypothesis even scientific?
is it falsifiable?
what is the condition that would falsify CAGW? you have not answered that question which I have repeatedly put forward.
if there is no condition that would falsify CAGW then it is not falsifiable, if it is not falsifiable then it is not scientific.

besides anything else, it is CAGW not AGW that is in dispute for most people, which means most skeptics question whether global warming is going to be catastrophic or harmful in any way shape or form.

are you aware that Peter Gleick who you have cited several times just recently, stole heartland documents and released them with a forged memo in order to demonize the skeptic thinktank of the heartland institute? analysis of writing style shows that it was gleick himself who forged the fake document. so to repeat your meme, why would Gleick need to use forged documents to make his points? this is one incident from a long line of warmist activist-scientists having behaved very badly and illegally. you are making a huge fuss over a single hearsay point from Harrison Schmitt and calling it deception, but ignoring the elephant of wrongdoings from the other side.

The big difference is that the scientists and engineers at NASA did execute Apollo (I was there.  I even remember that far back, before people with your mindset existed in tiis country..world.

It's nearly  radical left wing environmental policy, not communist.
Just socialist.  Just power-hungry attempts at control.

I'm sure you'll have another last word post.

Go ahead.

Jack and I don't care.   We're having fun elsewhere, thinking about cool things, like Apollo 17 and all the cool science they did up there.40 years go.  
You know, science, back before the post -Apollo generation started "thinking " along the lines you do, and abandoned rational, critical thinking for being swayed by opinions derived from...nothing at all.

One presents science, the other counters with sarcasm. Br Cornelius doesn't really need a last word to win the discussion.

I see some are still using the tired "the climate has changed before" approach, as if climate scientists don't know that. How do people not notice the deniers using the same arguments over and over, even after those arguments are answered and shown to be false over and over?

It's incredibly illogical and quite frankly stupid to think we have no impact on our environment and atmosphere.
