Stuffed settled science: Exhibit 4

With the advent of the Stuff “Quick save the planet” campaign wherein they forbid discussion and delete any comments that may question the “overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is … caused by human activity”, we here at Whaleoil thought it might be instructive to review a few of the new scientific discoveries of 2018 that were clearly not known about five years ago when Al Gore declared, “The science is settled”.

Jumping forward to October we find that climate ‘scientists’ have not been properly accounting for what plants do at night. Just like the National party has not been properly accounting for what its MPs do at night. Quote.

Climate scientists have not been properly accounting for what plants do at night, and that, it turns out, is a mistake. A new study from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has found that plant nutrient uptake in the absence of photosynthesis affects greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere.

In a study published today in Nature Climate Change, lead author William Riley demonstrates how to improve climate models to more accurately represent land biogeochemical dynamics. Using a new global land model they developed and integrated in DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM), Riley and his team found that plants can uptake more carbon dioxide and soils lose less nitrous oxide than previously thought. Their global simulations imply weaker terrestrial ecosystem feedbacks with the atmosphere than current models predict.

Dems let slip the dogs of race-war, now they’re getting bitten

Revolutions always end up eating their own and swords have two edges. Opportunistic politicians who weaponise fanatics end up getting hauled off to the guillotines and bonfires themselves.

The Democrats cried havoc and let slip the dogs of race war. For a while, all was going to plan, as their attack dogs attacked their intended targets. But now the rabid mongrels are turning on their masters. Quote:

Having unleashed race, gender, sexual orientation and class as the defining issues of American politics, these furies are now consuming their authors. End of quote.
