Only about 3% of CO2 in atmosphere due to burning fossil fuels | Climate Change Dispatch

More denialist wackoism. From Only about 3% of CO2 in atmosphere due to burning fossil fuels | Climate Change Dispatch (via Adjusting the past by the eminently sane NS, who explains the background:
http://www.climatechangedispatch.com/only-about-3-of-co2-in-atmosphere-due-to-burning-fossil-fuels.html According to this paper, only about 15 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere are due to burning fossil fuels.
That's drivel, of course. Its by "Paul Homewood". Its source is Only about 3% of CO2 in atmosphere due to burning fossil fuels at "www.climatechangedispatch.com", whose source, in turn, is http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2014/07/new-paper-finds-only-375-of-atmospheric.html. Which, as NS points out, has suddenly and mysteriously vanished.

And that makes you mud. Smelly mud

NOBODY "takes science by the throat" except temporarily, like the Soviets did before being crippled by it or the Vatican did before allowing minions to follow Darwin, normally. NO, no and no. You don't get to take "science" by the throat. Just scientism. Some New Age, postmodern, idea of it. The new kids are smart. They own the Internet. And that makes you mud. Smelly mud.

BIG NEWS IX: The Solar Model!

So, BIG NEWS IX: The Solar Model! finally reveals the model. Or does it? The main headline is releasing the Enormous Pile of Excel. Obviously that wouldn't do: reverse engineering the model from the spreadsheet would be as difficult and as pointless as forward-engineering it from the text-based description. But I'm reluctant to jump on that point, because there's also some kind of summary. And also I really don't care, because its all so clear that its hopelessly wrong.

About that graph…

Fallout from Battle of the graphs, which has inspired About that graph… at WUWT. Astonishingly, AW, having carefully examined, errm, his own prejudices, is firmly convinced that someone he likes is correct and someone he dislikes is incorrect.

You all are demonstrable, painful stick up the intellectual butt dickheads

You all are demonstrable, painful stick up the intellectual butt dickheads. Alas, now Goddard and Nova offers you such piled higher and deeper stinking bullshit that it's a veritable feast for any establishment group/thinker. I'm so sorry that the world carries on anyways, with no real court of public opinion. But you alarmists in particular are just as gross and freakish as Mr. Goddard. You are too wound up. Stop projecting weirdo hatred upon us boringly normal folk who love the majesty and mystery of Science. Life isn't really some paper form you get to fill out, with your fountain pen spewing splatters of righteous intent upon the page. You guys are just weirdos. Period.
