High Level Climate Finance

By | February 17, 2011

We have seen the end of yet another UN “Climate Fest”, with COP 16 in Cancun. The actual conference, however, is just the “tip of the iceberg” of the massive wheeling and dealing that goes on all year round.

Are Skeptic Scientists Corrupt?

By | February 17, 2011

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 »

The United (Socialist) Nations – Progress on Global Governance via Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Bio-Diversity

By | February 17, 2011

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 »

Uncertainty in the Global Average Surface Air Temperature Index: A Representative Lower Limit

By | February 14, 2011

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 »

Observed Climate Change and the Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse-gas Emission Limits in the State of New Mexico – 2011 Report

By | February 4, 2011

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 »

Carbon Dioxide and the Earth’s Future, Pursuing the Prudent Path

By | February 2, 2011

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 »
