The Older Peron Submergence

Attempts to remove any data about sea level from the Older Peron article are happening.  Have happened.

From a 1974 CIA report on Climate (concern over cooling) there is this image, based on Lamb


No doubt based on a blog entry here, Bob and company at Wikipedia have tried to remove any reference to higher sea levels during the Older Peron, in essence changing the past (but only on Wikipedia).  The first edit happened right after his comments on that blog post. 

Thankfully they have no power to remove the thousands of references and papers from the rest of the world.  

Actual Science, something often lacking on Wikipedia. 

And to be sure, I won't be mentioning other scientific pages on Wikipedia in the future, since this allows the vandals to find where to remove information.

JB Sigwart, Louis Frank or the "small comet" theory

No article for JB Sigwart, John B. Sigwart, Louis Frank or the "small comet" theory

Which didn't actually surprise me.  The official small comet page at the University of Iowa.

The ultimate test proved the reality of the holes, but to this day the observations are denied, or not mentioned, or something.  I don't actually know.  Everything went quiet back in 2001 after the proof was undeniable.

Certainly there are good reasons to deny it's small comets, as noted on this NASA page. (1997) But what are they?  And why is there no entry on Wikipedia?  Most odd.  Tempting to start the articles, but experience has shown what a pain in the ass that would become.  Until the articles were all deleted.

Watt per square meter

Does not exist on Wikipeida

And it's not because it's missing an "s"

Watts per square meter does not exist.

It is the  SI unit for  the power of electromagnetic radiation per unit area (radiative flux) incident on a surface. Radiant emittance or radiant exitance is the power per unit area radiated by a surface.

So it a measuremnt of  the power either landing on or leaving a surface,

Reliable fact based articles that involve "warming" in any way

I've noticed the terrible bias about anything global warming on Wikipedia many times on this blog.  Sometimes it's so blatant, so wrong, I'm tempted to edit and fix something, but that usually involves some ignorant person (who may have added the info in the first place) changing it back, or worse.  So instead, this blog post.  (I may go change it later, and note what happens)

Today I was reading the Juneau Icefield and Mendenhall Glacier articles.  The glacier article says
 " including Mendenhall Glacier. The glacier has also receded 1.75 miles (2.82 km) since 1958"

The Juneau Icefield article says "On the west side of the icefield, from 1946-2009, the terminus of the Mendenhall Glacier has retreated over 700 metres (0.43 mi)".

Obviously both can't be true.  Looking at a scientific source about it I find "Mendenhall Glacier has retreated 2800 meters since 1910 and 580 meters since 1948." source

The Mendenhall Glacier article doesn't have a single reference that states scientific measurements of it.   It does include
 "Quantifying the Consensus on Anthropogenic Global Warming in the Scientific Literature". Retrieved 17 October 2013.
 "Climate Change: Basic Information". Retrieved 17 October 2013.

Neither of which are scientific sources of information on the glacier.  Neither source even mentions the Mendenhall Glacier.

Dynamic theory of tides

Used to be there, but thanks to the ceasless efforts of some Wikipedians, it is no longer found.  Even the article on tides, which it redirects to, no longer mentions the theory.

The well written and well sourced article is still available on a user page.

The CO2 Theory (Enhanced greenhouse theory of global warming)

Not found on Wikipedia

The CO2 theory is the theory called global warming theory, or Anthropogenic climate change, or Anthropogenic Global Warming,  (AGW), or the Enhanced greenhouse theory of global warming, or the greenhouse theory of climate change, or CO2 Theory of Global Warming or the Enhanced greenhouse effect theory of climate change , or The greenhouse warming theory, or the CO2 Thesis, none of which have entries on Wikipedia.

CO2 thesis

It's not that they are not used on Wikipeida, they just don't have articles, definitions, or discussion pages on how to improve the article about them. Here it is used by Hansen in Hansen et al 1981

Hansen et al 1981, another thing not found on Wikipedia.
