During a forum at the University of Charleston, West Virginia the Forum, Robert Kennedy, Jr. made many statements about wind energy that are false or misleading and should not be allowed to stand without challenge. It’s unclear from the transcript whether Mr. Kennedy has been misled by the wind industry, whether he really believes all that he said… Read More »
This article discusses the limits of the Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory advocated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. A phenomenological theory of climate change based on the physical properties of the data themselves is proposed. At least 60% of the warming of the Earth observed since 1970 appears to be induced by natural cycles which are present… Read More »
The Goddard Institute for Space science (GISS), the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), and centers processing satellite data, such as the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH), have published temperature and rate of temperature change for the Contiguous United States, or ‘Lower 48’. Both GISS and NCDC have been criticized for their station selections and the protocols they… Read More »
In August last year, the National Resources Defense Council released a film “documentary” claiming that CO2 is turning the oceans to acid: It was funded by the Entertainment industry foundation1, and has the title, “Acid Test: The Global Challenge of Ocean Acidification”. This is SPPI’s second published analysis.
First, they called it “global warming”. Then they noticed there had been no warming for 15 years, and cooling for 9, so they hastily renamed it “climate change”. Then they noticed the climate was changing no more than it ever had, so they tried “energy security”, and even named a Congressional Bill after it. Then they noticed that… Read More »
Shortly before the Copenhagen Climate Conference, the Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, delivered a canting, 45-minute rant about the “Denialists”, “Climate Change Deniers”, and “Skeptics” who, he said, were entirely funded by special interests and who were now so dangerous that they were putting Our Planet’s Future And The Future Of Our Children And Our Grandchildren in… Read More »
An Australian reader has sent in a question-and-answer sheet on the climate completed by Dr. Andrew Glikson on behalf of a Member of Parliament who believes “global warming” is a global crisis and has circulated Dr. Glikson’s document to her constituents. The reader has asked us to provide a commentary on Dr. Glikson’s answers, which we do with… Read More »
The Earth’s atmosphere differs in essence from that of Venus and Mars. Our atmosphere is not totally cloud-covered, as is Venus: globally, about 40% of the sky is always clear. Also we have huge ocean surfaces that serve as a practically unlimited reservoir of water vapor for the air. With the help of these two conditions, the Earth’s… Read More »
