John Clauser is an American physicist and the 2022 (joint) Nobel Prize winner. As we’ve heard, he was cancelled from addressing the IMF about “climate change.” Well, that’s understandable. I mean, he’s not a qualified climate scientist or anything. He’s not in the same league as, say, Greta Thunberg or Al Gore, John Kerry, António Guterres or Tim ‘dams won’t fill’ Flannery. Apparently, he knows a thing or two about quantum entanglement. This is where two particles interreact and separate but then, like identical twins, behave as though they are one, doing exactly the same things no matter how distant apart; apropos their direction of spin. Strange business.
Stranger still are climate-change ministers mirroring sub-atomic life; interacting at United Nations COP meetings before going home and spinning as one. Spruiking net zero, with the same cunning plans to get there. To wit, taxing emissions, banning the sale of ICE cars, and ordering by proxy thousands of turbine blades, solar panels and batteries from China. Might this similarity have piqued Clauser’s interest in climate science? Perhaps not.
Clauser has recently been elected to serve on the board of directors of the CO2 Coalition. Best to go to the source itself for reliable information on the Coalition; hence the link I’ve provided. Because, according to Wikipedia, “it spreads misinformation about climate change.” Misinformation, hmm? More like disinformation, if you ask me. Don’t let them off the hook. The Coalition sets out deliberately, with nothing less than malice aforethought towards the IPCC, to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. What perfidy is that?
Back to Clauser. Maybe he knows a little more about climate science than you would think. More than does your average quantum physicist; if you can describe quantum physicists as average. Anyway he has a theory. In a nutshell, he believes that cumulous clouds keep the earth’s temperature fairly stable. He reckons that when sunlight reaches the earth it evaporates sea water – covering two-thirds of the earth’s surface – producing cumulous clouds which reflect back 90 percent of the sunlight which hits them. It’s akin to a thermostat controlling the temperature. The warmer it gets, the more evaporation, the more cumulous clouds, the more sunlight reflected back. Viola! He further reckons that the radiative heat transfer rate associated with atmospheric CO2 is “nearly two orders of magnitude smaller than the effective stabilisation of the input-power provided by the cloud-based thermostat.” Thus he believes that the effect of CO2 is diddly squat, to put it in precise scientific language. If I remember rightly, Richard Lindzen also refers to clouds reflecting back sunlight. It seems worthwhile investigating. That is, if you had an interest in discovering the truth and weren’t as mad as a hatter.
Apparently, the IPCC does concede clouds might be a fly in the ointment when it comes to its bizarre theory of imminent climate catastrophe, but prefers not to investigate this hypothesis lest it proves to be valid. According to Clauser, “The popular narrative about climate change reflects a dangerous corruption of science that threatens the world’s economy and the well-being of billions of people… there is no real climate crisis.” Still, a mentally-troubled Swedish teenager was concerned about the survival of the planet and that surely is enough for us to turn the world’s energy system upside down and bring about widespread impoverishment and blackouts.
What is going on? Why isn’t a prominent scientist like Clauser given the time of day? Why isn’t his theory confronted in a spirit of scientific enquiry? Why, instead, is he cancelled, banned, shunned, silenced, deplatformed? Hold on. That’s precisely what happens to the mentally unfit. They are not given the time of day. But in a reversal of fortune those who are clearly deranged, and not only Ms Thunberg, are feted by the great and good. Black is white and white is black. Two plus two make five.
I read in my newspaper on Wednesday morning that Origin are installing a 460MW-2 hour battery at Eraring and that this could be increased to 700MW. Eraring coal power station, due for closure in 2025, provides 2,900MW each and every hour. The batteries are a complete irrelevancy, yet they keep being promoted, surreally, as though they mattered in keeping the lights on. They don’t. They are an outright distraction.
We are not dealing with rational people. Explain until the cows come home that achieving net zero is impossible. Explain that wind, solar and batteries cannot replace a coal power station. Marshall your data, your facts. It will be to no avail. The inmates are running the show.
