THIS POST IS A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF THE POLICY POSITION ON THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE TAKEN BY THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE AND THEIR AAAS JOURNAL.

PART-1: THE STATED POSITION OF THE AAAS BOARD OF DIRECTORS ON THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE

AAAS Reaffirms Statement on Climate Change

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has reaffirmed the position of its Board of Directors and the leaders of 18 respected organizations, who concluded based on multiple lines of scientific evidence that global climate change caused by human activities is now underway, and it is a growing threat to society. “The vast preponderance of evidence, based on years of research conducted by a wide array of different investigators at many institutions, clearly indicates that global climate change is real, it is caused largely by human activities, and the need to take action is urgent,” said Alan I. Leshner, chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of the journal Science. AAAS expressed grave concerns that the illegal release of private emails stolen from the University of East Anglia should not cause policy-makers and the public to become confused about the scientific basis of global climate change. Scientific integrity demands robust, independent peer review, however, and AAAS therefore emphasized that investigations are appropriate whenever significant questions are raised regarding the transparency and rigor of the scientific method, the peer-review process, or the responsibility of individual scientists. The responsible institutions are mounting such investigations. AAAS is not itself an investigative body, Leshner emphasized, but the Association will carefully evaluate the conclusions of appropriate authorities who have been asked to review the emails. Selectively publicized language in messages exchanged over a number of years among several scientists has been interpreted by some to suggest unethical actions such as data manipulation or suppression. “AAAS takes issues of scientific integrity very seriously,” Leshner said. “It is fair and appropriate to pursue answers to any allegations of impropriety. It’s important to remember, though, that the reality of climate change is based on a century of robust and well-validated science.” The AAAS Board of Directors asserted in a statement issued 9 December 2006 that “the scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society.” Clear evidence of climate change is based upon “accumulating data from across the globe” that reveals “a wide array of effects: rapidly melting glaciers, increases in extreme weather, rising sea levels, shifts in species ranges, and more,” the AAAS Board reported. Reliable sensor data show an upturn in average temperatures for at least the past 30 years. The AAAS Board noted that “the pace of change and the evidence of harm have increased markedly over the last five years. The time to control greenhouse gas emissions is now.” AAAS joined the leaders of 17 other leading organizations in signing a letter sent 21 October 2009 to the U.S. Senate, emphasizing based upon rigorous research that human-induced climate change is ongoing and will have broad impacts on society—including the global economy and the environment.

PART-2: CRITICAL COMMENTARY

THE STATED POSITION OF A SCIENTIFIC BODY ON A SUBJECT OF RESEARCH POSTED BY THE AAAS IS A SIGNIFICANT INDICATOR OF BIAS IN CLIMATE CHANGE RESEARCH. THE FINDINGS HAVE ALREADY BEEN DECIDED BY THE PEOPLE AT THE TOP. IT REMAINS FOR RESEARCHERS TO ONLY PROVIDE THE RIGHT KIND OF DATA AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS TO VALIDATE KNOWN TRUTHS. THIS KIND OF SCIENCE THAT ACTUALLY CLAIMS ITS VALIDITY BECAUSE IT IS SCIENCE, IS ACTUALLY MORE LIKE RELIGION THAN SCIENCE.

Climate has always changed. There is little doubt that the planet has been warming since about 1700. There is even little doubt that some of the warming has been a result of human activity. Human activity has resulted in an increase in water vapor since before Jan, 1988 of about 82% more than would occur from just planet warming.

My work is fairly well documented but posting a link often causes issues. You might get it by a search with keywords in quotes “Water vapor vs CO2 for Planet Warming”.

Thank you Dan. I will find your site and read your paper.

Wow. A lot of researchgate papers!

Thanks for your interest . . .

Here is a peer reviewed paper that corroborates what I have been asserting for years: That water vapor controls the climate and CO2 has no significant influence. The sun matters because it provides the energy to drive the water vapor into the atmosphere http://thelightfootinstitute.ca/imglib/Earth_temp_paper.pdf
Statements therein include:
“In other words, the non-condensing GHGs are passive and do not affect Earth’s temperature because they are always rendered ineffective by the much larger warming by water vapor.”
“The increase in temperature over the decades mid-1970s to 2011 was caused by an increase in water vapor and not by an increase in CO2.”
“Carbon dioxide and the other non-condensing greenhouse gases (GHGs) as in Figure 3 are small, passive, and have no effect on the Earth’s temperature.”

A recent update of my work which focuses on the observation that WV controls climate because it has been increasing faster than possible from just planet warming is at https://www.researchgate.net/publication/338805648_Water_vapor_vs_CO2_for_planet_warming_14

Thank you. I will read it.

Only about 25% of the recent (since before 1860) increase in CO2 was from human activity according to Dr Ed Berry’s preprint 3 at https://edberry.com/blog/climate/climate-physics/preprint3 . That means the human contribution to climate change is from something other than CO2. The something other is apparently the increase in water vapor which has been increasing about 1.49% per decade. The WV increase trend is about 31% faster than calculated in the GCMs. The WV increase is mostly (about 90%) from increasing irrigation. https://watervaporandwarming.blogspot.com

Thank you, Dan. Ed is a very credible source.
