John Christy Climate Change Testimony Highlights May 13

House Natural Resources Committee Democrats Published on May 14, 2015 Dr. John Christy of the University of Alabama-Huntsville testified before the Natural Resources Committee on May 13, 2015, that carbon dioxide emissions have no significant impact on climate change — a position shared by approximately 3 percent of professional climate scientists. The highlights of his testimony are included here.

Rising CO2 Levels Greening Earth

From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States. Credit: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center/Kayvon Sharghi

Exposed: the Greenhouse Gas Junk Science Back Story

Principia Scientific Gerhard Kramm | November 16, 2013 Believers in the greenhouse gas theory, the cornerstone of the science of man-made global warming, often refer to a select history of researchers and key papers to bolster claims for a “settled science.” But here we expose just how flimsy is its provenance. Below is exposed the flaws in such seminal works by James Hansen, Richard Lindzen, the National Academy of Science (NAS) and others. This article is a summary of six articles located at the author’s blog (Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part 6). The ‘Charney’ Report We begin with the …

Roy Spencer on Panel 3: Why CO2 Emissions Are Not Creating a Climate Crisis

Heartland Institute Aug. 10, 2018 Burning fossil fuels lifted humanity out of squalor and created modern society. It also adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, which is now more than 400 parts per million. But is human-generated CO2 causing a catastrophic climate crisis requiring wholesale conversion of the world’s energy systems? Short answer: No, as Roy Spencer will explain.

Lawrence Solomon: Finally it’s safe for the whistleblowers of corrupted climate science to speak out

Financial Post February 16, 2017 by Lawrence Solomon The greatest scientific fraud of the century will be laid bare, along with its corrupt enablers in government, academia, industry and the media Whistleblowers at the U.S. government’s official keeper of the global warming stats, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), claim their agency doctored temperature data to hide the fact that global temperatures plateaued almost 20 years ago. Can the whistleblowers be believed in this claim, originally made in 2015? And in the further claim that NOAA then rushed this doctored data into print in time for the UN’s Paris …

OVEREXPOSED

Gobal Witness HOW THE IPCC’S 1.5°C REPORT DEMONSTRATES THE RISKS OF OVER INVESTMENT IN OIL AND GAS 23 APRIL 2019 Overinvestment in oil and gas creates risks for investors, regardless of whether the world is effective in tackling climate change. Either investors face assets being stranded as demand for fossil fuels falls in a transition to a low carbon economy, or the overinvestment contributes to excess emissions from fossil fuels, the failure to transition and the financial costs of a dramatically changed climate. Our analysis compared average oil and gas demand in the IPCC scenarios that are not reliant on …

Dr. Shaviv – What about the 97% consensus?

Dr. Nir Shaviv, astrophysicist, explains that science is about evidence, not consensus, and how the IPCC’s predictions on global warming do not reflect the evidence. This is due to the sun’s direct and indirect effects on climate not being fully accounted for.
