At the Earth’s surface, heat fluxes from the interior are generally insignificant compared with those from the Sun and atmosphere, except in areas permanently blanketed by ice. Modelling studies show that geothermal heat flux influences the internal thermal structure of ice sheets and the distribution of basal melt water, and it should be taken into account in planning deep ice drilling campaigns and climate reconstructions
Although I am not a scientist, I have always had a deep-seated interest in science and a great appreciation for the rigour of the scientific method, as such I find the abuse of scientific method to push specific agenda’s as the IPCC, CRU and others have done to be intolerable.
As each piece of additional scientific evidence weakens the argument against CAGW (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming) by showing additional natural factors leading to cycles of both warming and cooling over decades / centuries / millennia, I keep expecting the scientific establishment to rise up and rid itself of this heresy, but I am serially disappointed.
This is the problem with scientific funding being controlled by those with their own agendas, especially overtly political ones such as the watermelons.
Speaking of which, heartily recommend James Delingpole’s book on the subject of “Watermelons”
