QED coming soon!
Goldsearch Australia has been appointed the Australian Distributor for the QED.Check their website after  Wed 7th Dec 2016.
Global temperature goes from heat record to heat record, yet the sun is at its dimmest for half a century.
What is empirical  evidence?
Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analyzed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method. Why is everything posted on climate by Inhere always horseshit?
Poor old  Inhere on finders still does not know the difference between weather and climate!The silly old goat seems to think because some places have recently had very cold weather that this brings into question  AGW!  Only right wing rabble rubbish climate deniers like horseshit Inhere don't  seem to understand  that AGW will mean that some regions of the earth will become colder!
Why is  onehalfgram :1/2 wit always wrong  on the QED?

A rebuttal to the claims by Phil Watson
The Antarctic Climate & Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, which is based at the University of Tasmania
1. Do you agree with the premise of The Australian's article, which is that analysis of tidal gauges in Australia, as demonstrated in research published by Phil Watson, shows that sea-levels were rising at a decelerating rate in Australia between 1940 and 2000, and that the research paper calls into question the projected rise in sea-levels attributed to climate change?
No - I do not agree that "sea-levels were rising at a decelerating rate in Australia between 1940 and 2000", primarily because the "rate of acceleration or deceleration" is rather poorly defined over any specific time period (it depends very much how you analyse the data – see
There are a some important issues here:
(a) Observations from single tide gauges show considerable variability in time (as evidenced by Watson's plots, even though they have been smoothed with a 20-year running average). It is generally acknowledged that in order to derive a meaningful TREND (let alone an ACCELERATION (or change in trend), one needs 50 to 80 years of record - so, while Watson has enough data to estimate the trend, the validity of any estimated acceleration is open to question.
(b) The concepts of "acceleration" and "deceleration" depend very much on the period of time involved. For example, if one goes back in time and includes data from the late 19th century, an ACCELERATION is evident (see   
and    (bottom graph) for information on global-average sea-level rise) - starting the record in 1930 or 1940 means that any acceleration will be small or even negative. Also, if you only looked at Watson's data from 1970, you would get a strong ACCELERATION.!!!
How Not to Analyze Tide Gauge Data

There’s another paper about sea level rise in the Journal of Coastal Research by P. J. Watson (2011, Is There Evidence Yet of Acceleration in Mean Sea Level Rise around Mainland Australia?, Journal of Coastal Research, 27, 368–377). According to this powerpoint, Watson is genuinely concerned about sea level rise due to global warming and argues forcefully for addressing the issue. His primary interest seems to be: to help those responsible for protecting Australia’s coastline be as well prepared as possible for the impending sea level rise. That’s a noble motive, and I wish him success. But in spite of the best of intentions, I can’t put much stock in Watson’s published results because it’s clear that he is no data analyst.
