Gore’s 10 Errors Old and New

By | March 21, 2008

Error 1: “[‘Global warming’] is a planetary emergency. It is a crisis and we have to find ways to come to an agreement to reduce the carbon dioxide.” The facts: There is no “planetary emergency”. Nor is there a “crisis”. If there is an “emergency” or a “crisis”, it is certainly not caused by “global warming”. The increase… Read More »

Trenberth’s Twenty-Three Scientific Errors

By | October 28, 2007

Kevin Trenberth (Rocky Mountain News, October 24), commenting on Mike Rosen’s article expressing legitimate doubts about the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore, makes 23 scientific mistakes, each of which falls in the direction of magnifying the unjustifiable alarm stoked by panicky politicians and extravagantly-funded environmentalists in cahoots with a shrinking clique of scientists in… Read More »

Greenhouse Warming? What Greenhouse Warming?

By | August 22, 2007

THE FACT of warming tells us nothing of the cause. Yet the scientific consensus is that, though the rapid climatic warming from 1906 to 1940 was a natural recovery from the historically low temperatures of the Little Ice Age, it is we who are chiefly to blame for the equally rapid warming from 1975 to the present.

Errors in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth

By | July 19, 2007

Introduction: A cursory examination of the list of Gore’s errors is enough to demonstrate that each of them serves to magnify the supposed planetary threat posed by “global warming”, or to pour scorn and contempt on any who dare to gainsay the supposed “consensus”. Therefore we must conclude that Gore’s movie was not science: it was sophisticated propaganda… Read More »

The Mathematical Reason Why Long-run Climatic prediction is Impossible

By | July 19, 2007

CLIMATE cannot be accurately predicted more than a few weeks ahead with any respectable degree of reliability. The unpredictability even of a simple mathematical object whose initial state is not known in sufficiently fine detail has long been proven. Climate is a complex, non-linear object (IPCC, 2001) and is, therefore, a fortiori, impossible to predict long-term.

Rebuttal of “Rebuttal of ‘On global forces of nature driving the Earth’s Climate

By | July 19, 2007

In a recent paper, W. Aeschbach-Hertig (2006) of the Institute of Environmental Physics in the University of Heidelberg promotes his view that Khilyuk and Chilingar (2006) are wrong to suggest that the human influence on climate is negligible compared to natural forces driving the Earth’s climate. The two authors are members of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental… Read More »
