Before the cock crows thrice...


Every morning just before dawn our rooster crows and soon afterwards the sun comes up. We have observed no exceptions over three months - clear evidence of perfect correlation. Therefore we have concluded that the crowing rooster causes the sun to rise.

My wife Flora (who believes that the Cooee birds bring the rain) said: “I knew that ages ago - Professor Percival told me.”

So I consulted Professor Percival, our neighbour. He is Professor Emeritus in the “Science in Society” Department at Top-Line University. He specialises in the effect of sound waves on atmospheric transmissivity. He says that some roosters produce sound waves of just the right frequency to affect the dawn visibility through the thick morning atmosphere. He has written peer-reviewed papers on the subject which has been named “The Percival Effect”. In all the hallowed halls, it is regarded as “settled science”.

However, we decided that our rooster was not doing his day job, so he ended up as roast dinner last night.

Flora was very concerned – “what if the sun does not appear at all tomorrow?” she wailed.

But the sun rose as normal. 

Flora was relieved but a concerned Professor Percival went off to check his calculations “for feedback loops”. He is still checking.

One thing was proved conclusively in just one day – roosters crowing do not make the sun appear. Something else causes the sun to rise. Our ninety-two correlations did not prove causation. But just one disproof was needed to kill the Percival Effect.

So it is with the Greenhouse Effect. For about 20 years now, carbon dioxide levels have risen steadily but global temperatures are trending level. Therefore CO2 does not control global temperature.

One disproof is all that is needed.

Here endeth the Lesson. Thank you, Father Forbes, for all that you have ever done and all that you continue to do. Thank you for your life! -- Dick!

BTW, wasn,t it exploding the atom bomb that caused all this? I,m old enough to remember the furore then , because it would wreck havoc on the climate. Did it release carbon dioxide I wonder?

I think in real science labs, that,s called falsification. It,s one of the vital processes in determining facts in science. Einstein was right.

Read the link you supplied, Zero point four
Hilarious.

Zero point four percent
Yes 0.4 % thought there was no human induced Climate Change.
I bet that they still thought coal is dirty.

Few people remember that Albert Einstein
married his cousin, Elsa Loewenthal, after his
first marriage dissolved in 1919. He stated that
he was attracted to Elsa because she had big tits.
He postulated that if you are attracted to women
with large breasts, the attraction is stronger
if there is a DNA connection.
This came to be known as Einstein's Theory of
Relative T i t t y.

nice to hear the truth

Something to think about, discuss and in due course I'm sure most will dismiss.

Exquisitely put ViV, but it's a hell of an uphill battle. The problem is that the believers hold it as a quasi-religious article of faith that mankind is responsible for wrecking the planet, so no amount of rational scientific argument or evidence to the contrary will change their belief. My theory - what it is - (acknowledgements to Monty Python's Anne Elk, but life needs a regular shot of humour) is that in another ten or fifteen years, when it's clearer that the planet isn't warming and that the whole scam was utter bullshit (one recent prediction has the next ice age starting in 15 years' time), the loonies will still be protesting against evil Homo sapiens' destruction of the planet.

The receding Artic is FALSELY being attributed to anthropogenic CO2 global warming.
Artic sea ice has been receding over the last 20 years but the Antarctic sea ice however hasn’t.
Refer to link ‘1’ below.
Why the discrepancy? After all we’re dealing with GLOBAL warming.

The answer was given in links, ‘2’ & ‘3’, below.
There’s been volcanic activity under the North Pole for the last 20-30 years.
The volcanic activity would:
1. increase the temperature of the water
2. gases and minerals released into the water actually reduce the melting point of water and hence the greater propensity for water to melt at near freezing point temperatures.
The over-lying water column from below with all its additional heat and colligative contaminants rises to the top and starts to freeze. This water is now warmer and concurrently has a lower melting point due to the contaminants.

Is there any wonder that the northern sea ice area is reducing?

Yep.

Hey Viv, reckon you are spot on, always. I've been around for too long to be hoodwinked by the loony left/greens. The entire WA wheatbelt has just received fantastic rain and the weather bureau reckons that 'the weather pattern is not typical for this time of year'. Holy smoke, its the middle of winter for croisake! What a bunch of clowns. If this is climate change we'll take it any day. Oh, and the lake down the road from me has been pretty dry and was due for a top up, about every fifteen years the locals say. The dams are full too, all done.

What about the effect of NATO's experiments with the climate i.e aluminium/barium seeding over Nth America. See geoengineering.com. The media is told to keep quiet about this.

Wasn't Old Rooster a contributor to this blog. I guess we now know what happened to him.

Viv has highlighted nothing more than the fundamental philosophy and principles associated with true scientific process.
In medieval times, people were burnt alive at the stake to assert ideologies contrary to the prevailing theocratic dogma.
At this point of time, it’s starting with dismissiveness and vilification but where to next?
Are we now entering a new Dark Age emanating from both the West and the East?

It's late summer in northern Europe and bloody cold. The warmists are eerily quiet.

That story should be read to all primary school students. Great work Viv!

Nice one Viv ...

In fact you help explain the extra cold weather we've experiencing ..

It's because they are reducing CO2 emissions - that lovely gas that warms !

Well, we may only have to wait until 2030 before the warmists get frozen out entirely, or they rebrand their claptrap to suit the much colder climate that's being predicted by the astrophysicists. For now, they'll just keep parroting the line that solar cycles have no impact on the Earth's climate. Just like they don' believe water vapor has anything to do with warm, humid conditions.
