I know it’s a year old. Somehow I’d missed this one. Probably as I’d already known sensitivity was low (just look how shooting upward temperatures at the end of each Ice Age Glacial get slapped back down as strong negative feedback punishes the peaks).
But there’s more to this than the title implies.
There’s a math section toward the end that’s all about feedback loops. In it, Lord Monckton looks to have caught a “whopper” by the IPCC and their fellow travelers. He explores the formal mathematical underpinnings of feedback loops as first written up by folks in electronics, finds they use absolute voltage, points out the IPCC uses Delta-Temps, and proceeds to show if you use the correct math climate sensitivity plunges.
IMHO, his foundation is firm. Engineers doing feedback calcs and making products get it right using the actual V, not a delta V. Climate can not be any different.
Before that, though, he explores some of the reason for why colleges and universities are so ideologically Left Wing. He lays out a compelling history and sites sources (who just happen to have published a book saying that they actually did do what it is claimed they did).
Monckton also lays out a few ideas on “who to influence”.
So this isn’t just a tech talk with calculus, it’s also a political talk.
About an hour long and well worth it. At several points I hit “pause” to read detail on the slides.
IMHO, he’s got it right. The feedback / climate sensitivity he finds matches what I’d expect from observation of the world over a few decades.
The one negative I’d put out there is that some folks really ought not wear a baseball cap. It just does nothing complementary for them…
