Every morning just before dawn our rooster crows and soon afterwards the sun comes up. We have observed no exceptions over three months – clear evidence of perfect correlation. Therefore we have concluded that the crowing rooster causes the sun to rise.

My wife Flora (who believes that the Cooee birds bring the rain) said: “I knew that ages ago – Professor Percival told me.”

So I consulted Professor Percival, our neighbour. He is Professor Emeritus in the “Science in Society” Department at Top-Line University. He specialises in the effect of sound waves on atmospheric transmissivity. He says that some roosters produce sound waves of just the right frequency to affect the dawn visibility through the thick morning atmosphere. He has written peer-reviewed papers on the subject which has been named “The Percival Effect”. In all the hallowed halls, it is regarded as “settled science”.

However, we decided that our rooster was not doing his day job, so he ended up as roast dinner last night.

Flora was very concerned – “what if the sun does not appear at all tomorrow?” she wailed.

But the sun rose as normal. 

Flora was relieved but a concerned Professor Percival went off to check his calculations “for feedback loops”. He is still checking.

One thing was proved conclusively in just one day – roosters crowing do not make the sun appear. Something else causes the sun to rise. Our ninety-two correlations did not prove causation. But just one disproof was needed to kill the Percival Effect.

So it is with the Greenhouse Effect. For about 20 years now, carbon dioxide levels have risen steadily but global temperatures are trending level. Therefore CO2 does not control global temperature.

One disproof is all that is needed.

“No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.” Albert Einstein

Here endeth the Lesson. Thank you, Father Forbes, for all that you have ever done and all that you continue to do. Thank you for your life! — Dick!

BTW, wasn,t it exploding the atom bomb that caused all this? I,m old enough to remember the furore then , because it would wreck havoc on the climate. Did it release carbon dioxide I wonder?

I think in real science labs, that,s called falsification. It,s one of the vital processes in determining facts in science. Einstein was right.

Few people remember that Albert Einstein
married his cousin, Elsa Loewenthal, after his
first marriage dissolved in 1919. He stated that
he was attracted to Elsa because she had big tits.
He postulated that if you are attracted to women
with large breasts, the attraction is stronger
if there is a DNA connection.
This came to be known as Einstein’s Theory of
Relative T i t t y.

Exquisitely put ViV, but it’s a hell of an uphill battle. The problem is that the believers hold it as a quasi-religious article of faith that mankind is responsible for wrecking the planet, so no amount of rational scientific argument or evidence to the contrary will change their belief. My theory – what it is – (acknowledgements to Monty Python’s Anne Elk, but life needs a regular shot of humour) is that in another ten or fifteen years, when it’s clearer that the planet isn’t warming and that the whole scam was utter bullshit (one recent prediction has the next… Read more »

Hey Viv, reckon you are spot on, always. I’ve been around for too long to be hoodwinked by the loony left/greens. The entire WA wheatbelt has just received fantastic rain and the weather bureau reckons that ‘the weather pattern is not typical for this time of year’. Holy smoke, its the middle of winter for croisake! What a bunch of clowns. If this is climate change we’ll take it any day. Oh, and the lake down the road from me has been pretty dry and was due for a top up, about every fifteen years the locals say. The dams… Read more »

What about the effect of NATO’s experiments with the climate i.e aluminium/barium seeding over Nth America. See geoengineering.com. The media is told to keep quiet about this.

It’s late summer in northern Europe and bloody cold. The warmists are eerily quiet.

Nice one Viv …

In fact you help explain the extra cold weather we’ve experiencing ..

It’s because they are reducing CO2 emissions – that lovely gas that warms !

Well, we may only have to wait until 2030 before the warmists get frozen out entirely, or they rebrand their claptrap to suit the much colder climate that’s being predicted by the astrophysicists. For now, they’ll just keep parroting the line that solar cycles have no impact on the Earth’s climate. Just like they don’ believe water vapor has anything to do with warm, humid conditions.

Another cause for the increase in CO2 is humans breathing. The population of earth has doubled in the last 20 years from 3.5 billion to 7 billion and every time we breath out we expire CO2. And while I have my tongue in cheek, the human body maintains a constant temperature of 37 degrees, whilst the average ambient temperature is around 22. What happens to all that energy being generated by 7 billion people. Maybe we will have to stop procreating?

But the effects of the roosters crows takes at least thirty years to subside do to their echo and inertia. In thirty years the residual effects will have ceased and the sun will no longer rise. But if we direct funds into making a crowing simulator we might just be saved. Already, there are wind generated models.
