Bumped into this handy link on the great Curry "Carbon cycle questions" thread.
Do you ever find you have a pesky climatological metric that you need to explain by fitted-cycles/not-the-IPCC? Then this is the guide for you!
Whether it is - atmospheric CO2, sea ice, temperature, sea level, isotopes, deuterium depletion in ice cores, solar radiation, WHATEVER!!!... If you need to find some obscure cycle that fits what is happening and therefore disproves the CCCP, this guide shows you how.
It starts with a discussion of some basic principals that will be used:
But then it quickly moves the student forward into advanced applications. E.g., Western Pacific Equatorial SST:
Cool. I love the the precision. Not 79 years. 79.01 years. Ok, but how about the Western Pacific Equatorial SST? (Wait, didn't we just do that one? Never mind, let's continue.):
Ok, so it works for Western Pacific Equatorial SST. Anything else? Of course! How about 13C/12C isotope changes?:
The crazy thing is, this guide is FREE!!! The intertubes are the best.
I read about half of it before my head started to hurt, whereupon I skipped to the end...and my brain promptly cramped up hard enough to throw a rod...
...and I'll never get those last 15 minutes of my life back (that's the worst part).
