Exile for Non-Believers

By | September 24, 2009

The price for speaking out against global warming is exile from your peers, even if you are at the top of your field. What follows is an example of a scientific group that not only stopped a leading researcher from attending a meeting, but then-without discussing the evidence-applauds the IPCC and recommends urgent policies to reduce greenhouse gases.… Read More »

Sen. Stabenow: “Global Warming’ Causes More Hurricanes and Torados.”

By | August 17, 2009

Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich), in an interview with the Detroit News in mid-August 2009, said: “Climate change is very real.” She endorsed cap and trade’s massive tax increase on Michigan industry, saying it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. “Global warming creates volatility," said Senator Stabenow. “I feel it when I’m flying.… Read More »

Climate Money: The Climate Industry: $79 billion so far – trillions to come

By | July 22, 2009

The US government has spent over $79 billion since 1989 on policies related to climate change, including science and technology research, administration, education campaigns, foreign aid, and tax breaks. Despite the billions: “audits” of the science are left to unpaid volunteers. A dedicated but largely uncoordinated grassroots movement of scientists has sprung up around the globe to test… Read More »

Ocean Temperatures: The New Buff in Climate Temperatures

By | July 22, 2009

"The alarmists claim the world is still warming, that heat is building up in the oceans, and that the ocean temperature is rising and rising fast. These claims implicitly depend on a time period to say what a "trend" is, because temperatures fluctuate. The alarmists provide the context by showing trends of 20 to 50 years. This is… Read More »

There is No Evidence

By | July 3, 2009

Despite spending $50bn over the last 20 years looking for evidence of point (3) above, the alarmists have found none. In two instances they expected to find it, but in both cases they found only evidence of the opposite—and they have kept awfully quiet about those cases. If they just had some evidence of (3) they could just… Read More »

Global Warming Sideshow: Why Environmentalist Scare Tactics May Render Climate Research Irrelevent

As the scientific community debates the probable impact of human industry on the Earth’s climate, many in the environmental lobby, determined to dominate the political debate, wage an effective public relations campaign in the public arena. Believing fervently in their version of the facts, they cleverly tailor their rhetoric to have the strongest possible impact on the political… Read More »

Observed Climate Change & Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse-gas Emission Limits in Pennsylvania

By | May 29, 2009

Summary for Policy Makers In this report, we provide a review of Pennsylvania’s 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.  Instead of rising temperatures, the state’s annual… Read More »
