UN Climate Scientist: ‘CO2 Emissions Are Making Earth Greener, More Fertile’

Principia Scientific | October 16, 2019 Carbon dioxide emissions are making the Earth greener and more fertile, a United Nations (UN) climate scientist has said. In a paper for the Global Warming Policy Foundation, Dr Indur Goklany, who has previously represented the United States on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), says that the rising level of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere “is currently net beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally”. The benefits are real, whereas the costs of warming are uncertain,” he adds. “Carbon dioxide fertilises plants, and emissions from fossil fuels have already had a …

NASA Pinpoints Cause of Earth’s Recent Record Carbon Dioxide Spike

NASA Oct. 12, 2017 RELEASE 17-082 Image: The last El Nino in 2015-16 impacted the amount of carbon dioxide that Earth’s tropical regions released into the atmosphere, leading to Earth’s recent record spike in atmospheric carbon dioxide. The effects of the El Nino were different in each region. Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech A new NASA study provides space-based evidence that Earth’s tropical regions were the cause of the largest annual increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration seen in at least 2,000 years. Scientists suspected the 2015-16 El Nino — one of the largest on record — was responsible, but exactly how has …

Understand Climate Science Before Making Climate Policy

George C. Marshall Institute Roger W. Cohen, May 14, 2010 One of the most remarkable dynamics in the global warming debate is the response to the question: “Tell me, what is the case for significant anthropogenic global warming?” The responses tend to fall into three categories: One is appeal to authority: “All scientific societies agree that carbon dioxide emissions are causing (fill in the blanks)” Second is the “It doesn’t matter” response: “Even if the science is wrong, it is still important to do something about it” (that “something” is always big and expensive). I’m going to call this the …

Facts About Methane Ignored to Support Climate Narrative

WUWT October 14, 2019 Guest essay by By Walter Starck Science is, above all, a search for understanding based on a primacy of reason and evidence, with all findings subject to revision in accord with further evidence or more comprehensive explanation. The highest achievement in science is to discover a new or better understanding that can extend or replace an existing one. The other major systems of organized understanding are ideology and religion. In these systems, understanding derives from what is deemed to be revealed truth, which is unethical even to question. Reason and evidence are subordinated to a supporting …

Greta Thunberg And Eco-Eugenics

Principia Scientific By B.E. Vaillant | October 13, 2019 Is fame random? Or, is fame the result of access to power? The recent prominence of Greta Thunberg is a case in point. Did she become famous for simply being photographed sitting alone in front of the Swedish parliament building, on strike for the environment? Or, did she inherit the mantle of an eco-prophet? Is she just an ordinary, outraged young woman, or someone with deep family links to environmentalism, and who thus has all the right connections? For those that might not know, Greta supposedly shot to fame when the aforesaid …

Radiative emissions from greenhouse gases delay cooling, do not produce warming

Bud Bromley October 12, 2019 More than 10 years ago, Dr. Roy Spencer explained (1) in detail with examples why the climate models are wrong.  All models were overstating climate sensitivity to greenhouse gases.  The models were all (at the time) too sensitive to radiative forcing because they had misunderstood feedback processes, that is, feedback is an effect of radiative forcing, not a cause.  His blockbuster revelation was that ALL feedback from radiative emissions from greenhouse gases is negative. This note confirms Dr. Spencer’s conclusion at the molecular level.  In the troposphere, the layer of air closest to earth’s surface, …

Michael Mann “Hockey Stick” Update: Now Definitively Established To Be Fraud

Manhattan Contrarian August 26, 2019 | Francis Menton The Michael Mann “Hockey Stick” is suddenly back in the news. It’s been so long since we have heard from it, do you even remember what it is? The “Hockey Stick” is the graph that took the world of climate science by storm back in 1998. That’s when Mann and co-authors Raymond Bradley and Malcolm Hughes published in Nature their seminal paper “Global-scale temperature patterns and climate forcing over the past six centuries.” A subsequent 1999 update by the same authors, also in Nature (“Northern Hemisphere Temperatures During the Past Millennium: Inferences, …

Cough up the ‘secret science,’ climate propagandists!

WND Exclusive: Pat Boone continues his challenge to disgraced ‘hockey stick’ fabricator By Pat Boone | October 11, 2019 Dear reader, fellow citizen: I hope you remember a column recently in this space in which I let you know about a monumental development in this whole “global warming” panic. I shared with you the results of a little-reported court trial that detailed the embarrassing exposure of the most quoted “climate expert” as a total fraud! My purpose is to free us all from this ridiculous “Sky is Falling” scam and its primary “Chicken Little.” Now for a follow up, a …

Global Warming: Fact or Fiction? Featuring Physicists Willie Soon and Elliott Bloom

Is global warming real? Have any such predictions been established scientifically? Would massive “carbon” taxes and other controls put America and the world—especially the poor—at great risk? At this special event, geoscientist and astrophysicist Willie Soon separates fact from fiction in the global warming debate. He explains why the forecasts from CO2 climate models have been so wrong—and why solar influences on clouds, oceans, and wind drive climate change, not CO2 emissions. Stanford University physicist Elliott Bloom then comments. “The whole point of science is to question accepted dogmas. For that reason, I respect Willie Soon as a good scientist …
