The 'Hockey Schtick' (HS) reports (September 10, 2013) on more problems for official climate models. Newly-published research shows that climate models do not realistically simulate the role of wind (convection) on earth's climate.
The HS-highlighted paper is published the very same day as a damning new analysis exposing similar flaws in the upcoming UN climate report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
“A paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters finds climate models do not realistically simulate convection, "a key element of the weather and climate system for transporting mass, momentum, and thermal energy," because of a large gap in the scale or resolution required to simulate convection [1-2 km] compared to global atmospheric motions [on the order of 10,000 km].”
Meanwhile, Dr. Vincent Gray (Expert Reviewer of every IPCC report since 1990) publishes his own damning study in which wind, among other forces, is not factored into the official models, thereby causing climatologists to overestimate the effects of so-called “greenhouse gases.”
Taken together, both the GRL paper and the study by Dr. Gray form persuasive evidence that undue emphasise has long been placed on the roles of radiation and carbon dioxide (CO2) in climate change.
As the impacts of wind and the water cycle (via latent heat) are increasingly recognized this may persuade ever more scientists to question the greenhouse gas “theory” itself.
This is welcome news for Principia Scientific International (PSI). Their experts have for years been the stand alone critics of so-called “back radiation” heating - a key mechanism claimed in the so-called greenhouse gas theory but which has never been shown to exist.
By contrast, Gray's study shows that in the real world living organisms, the action of wind, oceans and glaciers are all factors climatologists admitted they knew very little about so didn't correctly account for in the models. As Dr. Gray indicates, this may help explain why it is a "travesty" that climatologists can't find the “missing heat” that their computer projections suggested would be there.
