Climate scientists rebut oft-repeated 2016 ‘warmest year on record’ claim

Kate Hardiman — University of Notre Dame — February 27, 2017 Recent stories from a variety of sources, including NASA, the Financial Times, and the New York Times report that Earth’s temperature reached a record high in 2016.

Are we living in a warm peak between ice ages?

His pet peeve is “instant climatology,” in which he says people base an argument on just a few decades of data.

Chemistry Expert: Carbon Dioxide Can’t Cause Global Warming

Dr. Mark Imisides — Principia Scientific — February 9, 2017 Scarcely a day goes by without us being warned of coastal inundation by rising seas due to global warming. Why on earth do we attribute any heating of the oceans to carbon dioxide, when there is a far more obvious culprit, and when such a […]

Incredibly the MSM is starting to report on the Great Climate Change hoax.

Is the pyramid of climate change lies about to come crumbling down?   I doubt we would have seen an article like this in the Mainstream Media five or even three years ago. So much for the 97% consensus. It appears that scientists are starting to turn on each other as their doomsday predictions not […]

Wind: An Important Forgotten or Ignored Weather Variable

Dr. Tim Ball — Watts Up With That — Sept. 10, 2016 “Every wind has its weather.” English philosopher Sir Francis Bacon (1561 –1621) What happens if the global average wind speed changes by one kilometer per hour? A great deal, including the rate of evaporation from the surface, a major mechanism of energy transfers […]

Environmentalism Is A Religion

Thanks to C. Berg for this article.  I have been saying for years that the true science deniers are the faithful members of the Church of Global Warming. It follows the template of almost all organized religions throughout history. Built on fearmongering, apocalyptic forecasts, doom and gloom, sin, guilt, shame, penance, tithing (carbon taxes), blind […]

Climate Alarmism: Probably the Greatest Hoax/Scam in World History

From the viewpoint of a skeptical former Sierra Club activist and USEPA senior analyst Aug. 19, 2016 – Alan Carlin Climate alarmism is probably the greatest hoax/scam in world history. The main evidence for catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW), the principal alleged adverse effect of human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), is climate models built […]

Measuring global temperatures: Satellites or thermometers?

Dr. Roy Spencer — CFact — January 26, 2016 The University of Alabama in Huntsville The official global temperature numbers are in, and NOAA and NASA have decided that 2015 was the warmest year on record. Based mostly upon surface thermometers, the official pronouncement ignores the other two primary ways of measuring global air temperatures, satellites […]

Disarming the Alarmists: Climate-change Myth Takes Three More Hits

Selwyn Duke — New American — January 8, 2016 It’s no wonder climate alarmists are getting hot under the collar, proposing measures such as imprisoning climate realists. Because, increasingly, the facts are not intersecting with their agenda. And 2016 is providing no respite, with, reports Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), three more global-warming stories that no […]

Climate Alarmists Have Been Wrong About Virtually Everything

Alex Newman — New American — January 8, 2016 The 1975 Newsweek article entitled “The Cooling World,” which claimed Earth’s temperature had been plunging for decades due to humanity’s activities, opens as follows: There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic […]

Seven top level scientists who are global warming doubters

(Oddly enough, the headline of this article states that these top 7 scientists are “missing the point” about man-made climate change, but then the author neglects to state “how” they are missing the point.  Instead, she presents their credentials and reasons for doubting the man-made global warming theory, thereby giving more credibility to their arguments.

2ND TIME TODAY!!! Climate Modeller says Mathematical Error put blame for Climate Change on CO2.

That’s right!  Here we go.  The back peddling is going to pick up speed. “He has fixed two errors and the new corrected model finds the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide (CO2) is much lower than was thought.” ************************************************** Perth electrical engineer’s discovery will change climate change debate Miranda Devine — Perth Now — October […]

The Climate Wars’ Damage to (Credible) Science

The great thing about science is that it’s self-correcting. The good drives out the bad, because experiments get replicated and hypotheses tested — or so I used to think. Now, thanks largely to climate science, I see bad ideas can persist for decades, and surrounded by myrmidons of furious defenders they become intolerant dogmas. Matt […]
