    Sunday for me at least, is the Lord’s Day. It’s normal for me to do as little as possible in the way of work on Sundays.

    You know it’s funny how small things kick the mind into gear.

    My parents were not religious but on the other hand there were things that “were not the done thing”Dad was a very keen gardener (I hate it) and Mum also had strict ideas of what one did or didn’t dos on Sunday. Didn’t matter how the weather treated us one did not hang out washing on a Sunday and while Dad would chop fire wood in the back yard he would NOT work in the front garden where he could be seen.

    At the same time Dad never went to Church except for Funerals and Weddings.

    I am surprised you are so dismissive of the Y2K issue when you claim to be knowledgeable about computing and didn’t you tell us once that you once were a computer centre manager.

    Anyone who was working in IT at the end of the last century, as I was, knows just how many bugs were identified and removed by testing the systems. Many of those bugs were extremely serious.

    Cheers 🙂

    As far as predictions that didn’t happen yes there are thousands but if you look at the background it is more telling that just looking at the bald headline.

    Paul Ehrlich is a biologist and he was concerned with population growth and the ability of the planet to feed the growing population.

    The fact is when you look at what happened after his publications we discover that science worked to increase food production to keep up with population growth.
    The use of high-yield wheat and rice, along with large doses of fertilizer—the so-called “Green Revolution”—has transformed the food picture in many countries. Wheat production in India nearly tripled from 1965 to 1980 while rice production increased 60 percent with the new strains and new methods. During the 1970s alone, rice production rose 37 percent in Indonesia and 40 percent in the Philippines.

    Cheers 🙂

    The other thing about predictions is that it is better to look at the ones that were accurate than the ones that weren’t

    http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2019/12/how-good-have-climate-models-been-at-truly-predicting-the-future/

    And when predictions made in the past are as accurate as the ones in the link we can be confident that they will continue to be accurate into the future if we don’t do something to change the factors effecting climate change (like food technology did for population growth predictions and subsequent food shortages)

    Cheers 🙂

    I reckon it is better to go with the ones who get the predictions right rather the ones who get it wrong be it investments or climate change.

    That article on the climate models is very revealing.

    And we should use the most up to date predictions as new knowledge and understanding are being achieved every day.

    Never rely on out of date data

    O months rain in just over a day in Fiordland, over a months rain in a day in Jakarta, a months rain in a few hours in Canberra, in November half a months rain fell in a day in the UK.

    Anyone not see a pattern?
    Or indeed what was predicted in An Inconvenient Truth in 2006?

    Nature Has Been Removing Excess CO2 4X Faster than IPCC Models

    Nature Has Been Removing Excess CO2 4X Faster than IPCC Models

    Corrected RCP Scenario Removal Fractions

    But the bottom line is, CO2 in the atmosphere has no effect on temperature.

    Did you know Dr Guus Berkholt worked for the oil industry and was an engineer and was a geo physicist.

    Not the most impartial person to listen to or most knowledgeable in the latest climate science.

    Cheers 🙂

    Did you know that Dr Roy Spencer’s work has been critised for selectively using data that supports the views he holds

    First, [they] analyzed 14 models, but they plotted only six models and the particular observational data set that provided maximum support for their hypothesis. Plotting all of the models and all of the data provide a much different conclusion.

    Not exactly trustworthy science

    Cheers 🙂
