RealClimate: Unforced variations: Aug 2022
In reply to MA Rodger.
matthias schuerle (aka marcias shurly) @up-thread,
My apologies if I did not spot your grand revelation from a fortnight ago but this is because as a rule I no longer bother wasting my time reading the nonsense you plaster down the comment threads here at RC.
Givng your grand revelation from a fortnight ago a quick once-over, I must say it is not dissimilar to what has gone before. Perhaps you are now arguing that all those trees mankind has chopped down since, well presumably since the chopper was invented; arguing that all this deforestation has caused serious amounts of global warming and perhaps also suggesting this is yet more reason to ignore the ever-increasing forcing from mankind’s GHG emissions and instead more reason to implement the Strategy you have invented to flood all the World’s land with river waters and thus stop both SLR & AGW in their tracks.
But my advice to you (given as you do say “please”) would be to take your time and not get carried away with that number you managed to find reported by Dias et al (2015). Thus, for instance, how does the conclusion you reach (from using Dias et al’s singular simulation result from the eastern Matto Grosso and extrapolating it over the whole wide world) compare with, say, the findings of Xu et al (2022) ‘Contrasting impacts of forests on cloud cover based on satellite observations’?
Your theorising had a good run for its money when it first appeared over at SkS last year. Within a tediously long interchange at SkS, it was shown to be nonsense and bringing it here to RC and adding a few magic numbers to it will not convert it into something sensible.
That is why I no longer bother wasting my time reading the nonsense you plaster down the comment threads here at RC. I do not apologise for paying no heed to your nonsense and indeed would encourage our hosts to commit your comment to the BoreHole or the CrankShaft.
