Summary: For good or ill, climate has grown to become a central issue over these decades. Claiming that people are poor and helpless beginners who need experts to think for them is years past its best before date. But this claim is just great if you believe that only an elite is capable of making intelligent decisions and… Read More »
The collection of Original Papers at SPPI are authored by people with impressive credentials in science, or at least they have a demonstrated grasp of the various technical aspects of global warming theory through their history of writing on the subject. I must stress on no uncertain terms that I do not share those accomplishments, a fact that… Read More »
Whilst the continual scientific rebuttals of the climate reports produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) may make many people think that this charade cannot continue much longer, behind the scenes it is quite irrelevant; the long-term process marches relentlessly on as if there had never been any challenges at all. As the advocates throw in… Read More »
ABSTRACT: Sensor measurement uncertainty has never been fully considered in prior appraisals of global average surface air temperature. The estimated average ±0.2 C station error has been incorrectly assessed as random, and the systematic error from uncontrolled variables has been invariably neglected. The systematic errors in measurements from three ideally sited and maintained temperature sensors are calculated herein.… Read More »
In this report, we provide a review of Illinois’ climate history and show that there is little observational evidence of unusual long-term climate changes taking place that could be linked to anthropogenic “global warming”—despite the frequent prognostications to the contrary, often accompanied by doom and gloom scenarios.
In this report, we review New Mexico’s long-term climate history and find little in the way of evidence that greenhouse gas build-up in the atmosphere has altered New Mexico’s climate. Instead of long-term changes, short-term variability dominates the state’s average temperature, precipitation, and drought frequency. Current temperatures are not all that different than the ones observed at the… Read More »
As presently constituted, earth’s atmosphere contains just slightly less than 400 ppm of the colorless and odorless gas we call carbon dioxide or CO2. That’s only four-hundredths of one percent. Consequently, even if the air’s CO2 concentration was tripled, carbon dioxide would still comprise only a little over one tenth of one percent of the air we breathe,… Read More »
