Looking for Patterns in instrumental data                                            
Dr Darko Butina



Dr Darko Butina is a retired scientist with 20 years of experience in experimental side of Carbon-based chemistry and 20 years in pattern recognition and datamining of experimental data. He was part of the team that designed the first effective drug for treatment of migraine for which the UK-based company received The Queens Award. Twenty years on and the drug molecule Sumatriptan has improved quality of life for millions of migraine sufferers worldwide. During his computational side of drug discovery, he developed clustering algorithm, dbclus that is now de facto standard for quantifying diversity in world of molecular structures and recently applied to the thermometer based archived data at the weather stations in UK, Canada and Australia. The forthcoming paper clearly shows what is so very wrong with use of invented and non-existing global temperatures and why it is impossible to declare one year either warmer or colder than any other year. He is also one of the co-authors of the paper which was awarded a prestigious Ebert Prize as best paper for 2002 by American Pharmaceutical Association. He is peer reviewer for several International Journals dealing with modelling of experimental data and member of the EU grants committee in Brussels.


This website is all about experimental sciences, explaining what they are, how they work and the impact they have on our everyday life.  Various reports that you will find here can be placed into one of four different categories: temperatures, CO2, data and knowledge and statistics; all the reports are based on over 40 years of personal experience working in experimental sciences rather than relying solely on literature reviews.  The main reason for starting this website, and spending my pension money to maintain it, is to begin to repair the damage that the man-made global warming and man-made climate change propaganda machine has done to science in general.  To achieve that goal, I will be using numerous examples of how experimental sciences work and will compare that with the pseudo-scientific approaches that have been used in the man-made global warming/climate change doom-laden hysteria.

The basic principle of the experimental sciences is based on the fact that an experiment can be validated and then reproduced, once or even a million times, with the same results being obtained.  To be able to achieve that task, an experimentalist has to be in total control of every aspect of the experiment, both internally and externally, in which case it is called a ‘closed system experiment’.  You can visualise it as a box, a chamber or a flask where the experimentalist decides what substance and how much of it goes in, whether and for how long either heating or cooling is required and how the final product will be isolated.  This experiment is then recorded, with all the relevant details included, and subsequently published so that it can be reproduced and, therefore, validated by the rest of the scientific community specializing in that particular field of science.

In total contrast, we don't control our planet - it is our planet that controls every single aspect of our lives, and we have no influence on the only source of our heat energy, the Sun, which is 100 million miles away.

To understand temperature patterns observed on Earth, one has to apply the following facts relating to our position in the Universe: the Sun is the only source of heat energy warming the Earth; the Earth rotates around its own axis in an irregular fashion in a 24 hour cycle; at the same time the Earth rotates the Sun in an irregular orbit in a 365 day cycle and, finally, our solar system rotates around our galaxy in a 220 million year cycle in another very irregular orbit.  It follows that if we want to understand all the factors that affect the Earth’s temperatures, we must first understand the cycles that might affect the source of that heat, i.e. the Sun, and if we want to understand the Sun, we must understand the Sun’s cycles around the Milky Way.  To understand all that, we would need instrumental data for at least 1 galactic year which, in turn, means 220 million years’ worth of data.  In reality, what we have is only 299 years' worth of thermometer data since the calibrated thermometer was first invented in 1714 by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit.

What is important to emphasise here is that we have, as the human race residing on Earth, absolutely no control of any aspect of the physical forces that govern our planet.  For example, we can’t stop the Earth rotating, nor fix a cloud in a single spot in the sky, nor stop the wind blowing so that we can find out how much clouds effect the temperature.  We can’t ask a volcano to be active for 2 hours and then to stop for 10 years so that we can study the effect that CO2 produced by the volcano had on the surrounding area.  Yet, the man-made global warming and man-made Climate Community, including the official body called the IPCC, keep telling us that we can control everything around us by reducing the CO2 emissions that result from burning fossil fuels.  As we will see from various reports, this kind of thinking cannot even be called science fiction, let alone science.

This introduction is needed to put all the reports and publications that will appear on this website into perspective.  All our knowledge is based on data that is generated by approved instruments and assigned unique symbols.  So whenever I discuss temperatures and use symbols like “OC” “OF” or “OK” it means I am referring to thermometer data and whenever I discuss concentrations of CO2, I am referring to data obtained using modern CO2-monitors.

This is a new website and it is still in development, so please be patient and re-visit it on a weekly basis to access new reports.  At the moment, there are two major pages covering topics on Air Temperatures and CO2.  All reports and publications are in standard PDF format.

My main objective is to raise awareness about experimental sciences and to inform readers how to separate facts from fiction when it comes to understanding the physical forces that control our lives and the physical reality that we live in.

Enjoy and remember, to gain knowledge we need to listen to data and not to force data to listen to us.  As the saying goes, “If you torture data long enough, data will admit everything that you want to hear.
