A warmist thought they were being clever and "educational" by showing me this diagram. They failed to realize I would Audit it.
The diagram supposedly depicts a location in Antarctica. I don't believe a word of it. Ice "shelves" and ice "sheets"? Everyone knows shelves are made of wood and sheets are made of linen. And where is the arrow to depict co2 freezing out of the atmosphere?
These problems are not however my main concern with the diagram. Notice the craftily drawn single fish in the ocean? Odd isn't it. It isn't labelled. Why is it there? What is the purpose of this fish? What is the agenda of the artist? This therefore becomes the single most important part of the diagram as far as Blog Science is concerned. And so I begin an Audit.
Climate Science being a typically sloppy field of science had failed to reference the fish depicted in the diagram. In other fields of science this would be considered a scientific act of Grand Treason. But not in climate "Science".
So I spent many hours working through resources on fish; fish encyclopedias, fishing blogs, even cookbooks on fish cuisine in a bid to discover the species of fish depicted. I even bought a frozen haddock for inspiration. Yet despite an inadvertent tasty lunch, my endevor produced no result.
It was then I struck upon a suspicion - what if the fish itself does not even exist? What if the IPCC have fabricated a new species fish to further their agenda?
Through detailed scientific investigation I determined the plane in the diagram is a Douglas DC-8. With this information I was able to calculate the size of the IPCC fish. I found the result very disturbing. So-called "scientists" have a lot of questions to answer. Behold the size of the horror fish which the IPCC propose swims deep in the depths of the southern polar ocean:
A 41 foot long leviathon! 23 feet high! See the horror fish compared to a human being.
Thankfully fish this large simply do not exist, if they did commercial shipping would be impossible. But that doesn't stop the IPCC from using such fear stories to scare kids.
Someone should audit the DC-8 radar data to see if such a fish was really there at the time. Although I imagine the data used to produce the diagram has all been hidden from the public or deleted. Notice the fish is carefully hidden beneath the so-called ice "shelf" so they have a convenient excuse for why it might not show up in the DC-8 raw data anyway.
The next obvious move was to look at the CRU emails for references to fish.
While I didn't find anything concrete I did find an email from Phil Jones to Michael Mann which contained the sentence:
"When the coring was done in the 1980s and early 1990s the fieldwork teams ate a lot of fish!"
What could this mean? I do not know for sure, but merely raising a question I cannot answer is evidence of wrongdoing. The plot thickens.
