Reply to Chicago Tribune global warming letters

Chicago PM Tuesday 17 July 2012

Voice of the People, Chicago Tribune


The  Chicago Tribune prints six letters on Tuesday 17 July that take decided umbrage with Dennis Byrne's Sunday 10 July column on global warming.   Yet the letter writers themselves seem oblivious to two major facts in the discussion:  1) The entire global warmingjustification is based on mathematical models:  Take a series of documented climate conditions from the past, put them in a computer,  and viola! Disaster is inevitable!  And 2) What is never admitted is the pathetically small set of past data there is to work with.
This can be demonstrated with a mathematical model:  projecting the planet's 4.5 billion year age on an   80-year  human lifetime.  Such a model shows one year of earth time
 equivalent to 0.562 seconds of an 80-year human life span.  This means humans first appeared in our model earth 39 days ago. They had no idea of measuring temperature before Galileo's 1593 thermometer invention, 4 minutes ago to our senior citizen; discovery of carbon dioxide in 1630? 3 minutes 30 seconds ago. 

Even a number quoted  in the letters - “CO2 levels...  are the highest they have been in 650,000 years” is only 4 1/2   days in our geezer model.    And “The Maldives will be submerged by the end of this century”?  The highest point in the Maldives is 7 feet above sea level.  We get higher waves than that on Lake Michigan.
If an MD takes an 80 year-old's blood pressure and gets 120 over 80, does it again 5 minutes later and gets 124 over 78, would she call 911 for an ambulance?
