Scientists vs Alarmists

A letter from 36 leading climate scientists responding to the latest round of alarmism. Longish, but worth quoting in full: February 8, 2011 To the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate: In reply to “The Importance of Science in Addressing Climate Change” On 28 January 2011, eighteen scientists sent a letter …

Why Climate Change Nonsense Has to Stop

Climate change alarmists need to be called to account. When they talk about global warming, they actually mean three separate things: 1. The world is getting warmer in an unprecedented, or at least highly unusual and alarming, way. 2. This unusual warming is caused by human activity, specifically, the use of fossil fuels. 3. The world getting warmer …

New Ice Age?

As the Daily Mail points out, this looks like a computer generated graphic of the Ice Age: But this was yesterday. Of course Al Gore now claims:  ‘As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what …

Glaciers, Gore, Green Jobs

Glacier retreat has been one of the key pieces of evidence in the warming alarmists’ campaign against cheap fuel and the world economy that depends on it. Himalayan glaciers are melting! Never mind the fact that even if the world were warming, this would prove nothing about why it is warming. Less than 1 degree …

I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing

He, he. ‘We can give billions of dollars to green energy research.’ ‘And that will enable us to replace gasoline with sunbeams?’ ‘Nothing lost in trying.’ ‘Except the billions of dollars.’ ‘That is taxpayer money. If we don’t take it from them, people will just waste it on their own families, instead of it being …

Consensus, Consensus, Consensus

I said it three times, so it must be true. Or it was true back in the seventies. No matter how much they try to deny it now (just as in five years time they will all be denying they ever fell for the AGW scam) there seemed to be a consensus two decades ago that …

Temperature Changing

Even when it hasn’t changed. This kind of ‘adjustment’ appears to have been so common it is hardly worth commenting on any more. Except that we are still waiting for any kind of acknowledgement of these alterations in the lamestream media, or any discussion of why they are so important. Put simply, the whole global warming scare is …

Disaster of Unprecedented Proportions

Or that’s what the AGW alarmists would have you believe, with ever more shrill warnings about melting ice, starving Africans, extinct frogs, and the hottest decade ever in Australia. No really, you have to believe me. Whatever. ‘Whatever’, is becoming the standard, and appropriate, response to the decadal scientific scare oscillation (DSSO). For example, 20% …

Mainstream Media Picks Up CRU Email Story

This article in the Wall Street Journal Hacked Emails Show Climate Science Ridden with Rancor may be the beginning of some very reluctant coverage by the commercial media. They were always going to be a bit slow. After all, disastrous global warming has been one of their major headline grabbers for the last decade. Higher sales …
