On Climate Change, Who’s Really Attacking Science?

Principia Scientific  July 2, 2019  by Peter Schwartz There is an intellectual orthodoxy being imposed by political figures, abetted by much of the news media. Certain viewpoints are forbidden — not simply regarded as wrong, but not permitted to be considered. We can observe this attitude at our colleges, where speakers who challenge leftist premises have been forcibly silenced. But it is most entrenched in discussions about global warming, in which non-orthodox views are treated the way religionists treat challenges to biblical dogma. A striking example is provided by a recent New York Times front-page story. The print-version headline reads: “In …

Climate models are fudged, says climatologist – Video

WUWT July 2, 2019 Dr. Patrick Michaels, former Virginia State Climatologist has some strong comments about climate models during an interview with Mark Levin: “It is nowhere near as warm as it’s ‘supposed’ to be,” says climatologist Dr. Patrick Michaels. “The computer models are making systematic, dramatic errors.” There are 32 different computer models used to predict the climate, all of them run by government entities. And all of those models, except for the Russian model, are predicting far, far too much warming. The Russian model pretty much matches reality. Because they are “parameterized” (fudged), says Michaels. “We put in …

Why the Greenhouse Gas Theory Flunks the Albedo Test

Principia Scientific June 27, 2019 by John O’Sullivan Those of us who ‘deny’ the validity of the radiative greenhouse effect (GHE) theory are asked to provide our own alternative explanation of how the earth’s climate system operates. Well, the answer is simple: the sun and earth’s water cycle are the key. But you have to measure their impact at the ‘real’ surface of earth (top of the atmosphere) not at ground level. Why? Because that is the only location you can genuinely measure the impact of albedo (cloud cover cooling). When our book, ‘Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the …

More efficient North Atlantic carbon pump during the Last Glacial Maximum

Nature Communications Published: 15 May 2019 J. Yu, L. Menviel, Z. D. Jin, D. J. R. Thornalley, G. L. Foster, E. J. Rohling, I. N. McCave, J. F. McManus, Y. Dai, H. Ren, F. He, F. Zhang, P. J. Chen & A. P. Roberts Nature Communications volume 10, Article number: 2170 (2019) Abstract During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM; ~20,000 years ago), the global ocean sequestered a large amount of carbon lost from the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere. Suppressed CO2 outgassing from the Southern Ocean is the prevailing explanation for this carbon sequestration. By contrast, the North Atlantic Ocean—a major …

Putting Climate Change Claims to the Test

Global Warming Policy Forum 18/06/19 | Dr John Christy This is a full transcript of a talk given by Dr John Christy to the GWPF on Wednesday 8th May. When I grew up in the world of science, science was understood as a method of finding information. You would make a claim or a hypothesis, and then test that claim against independent data. If it failed, you rejected your claim and you went back and started over again. What I’ve found today is that if someone makes a claim about the climate, and someone like me falsifies that claim, rather …

The great hundred billion dollar+ renewable energy fleecing of American taxpayers & energy users

by Larry Hamlin | June 13, 2019 The colossal magnitude of renewable energy federal and state government driven subsidies, taxes and higher energy cost impacts has never been systematically revealed to the American public but has instead been secreted away from view by those enjoying the huge financial benefits of this monumental largesse. The staggering negative financial impacts foisted upon Americans that are associated with all forms of renewable energy flow directly from government mandates, taxes, subsidies and higher cost consequences of an array of outrageously flawed political dictates that falsely claim to offer improved outcomes for the “climate” versus …

An Atmospheric Greenhouse Effect Cannot Exist So What Does Carbon Dioxide in the Atmosphere Really Do?

11 June 2019 H20 (water vapor,) CO2 (carbon dioxide), and CH4 (methane) and some other very minor trace gases are so-called “greenhouse gases” because they absorb infrared energy.  Water vapor is by far the largest of these so called greenhouse gases. However, be careful to avoid the common misunderstanding that the earth and its atmosphere behave like a garden greenhouse; that is not true.  Greenhouses are closed systems except to incoming energy.  Earth is an open system, open to receive energy, as well receive gases and other matter from space and also open to transmit energy, gases and matter back …

New Research: Methane Emissions From Livestock Have No Detectable Effect On The Climate

No Tricks Zone Kenneth Richard | 3. December 2018 Agrobiologist and scientific researcher Dr. Albrecht Glatzle, author of over 100 scientific papers and two textbooks, has published research that shows “there is no scientific evidence, whatsoever, that domestic livestock could represent a risk for the Earth’s climate” and that the “warming potential of anthropogenic GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions has been exaggerated”.

Why Scientists Who Know Climate Change Isn’t Causing Extreme Weather Stay Quiet

Climate Change Dispatch Ross McKitrick | June 7, 2019 This week in Vancouver, Prime Minister Trudeau said the federal carbon tax, a key pillar in his government’s climate policy, will help protect Canadians from extreme weather. “Extreme weather events are extraordinarily expensive for Canadians, our communities and our economy,” he said, citing the recent tornadoes in Ottawa and wildfires in Western Canada. “That’s why we need to act.” While members of the media may nod along to such claims, the evidence paints a different story.
