A collection – including new papers – of essential readings on the policy, science and politics of CO2 mitigations schemes. Particular focus on the Waxman-Markey legislation as currently being “marked up” in the House Energy and Commerce Committee. None-the-less, the issues and conclusions are universal for any form of mitigation efforts: futile, wasteful, costly and dangerous.
A simple, robust metric to analyze the cost-effectiveness of measures to mitigate anthropogenic CO2 emissions, expressed not – as now – in tonnes of CO2 emission foregone but in Kelvin degrees of warming prevented, is described, evaluated, and applied to various currently-proposed mitigation policies, all of which prove disproportionately costly and ineffective
Summary for Policy Makers In this report we provide a review of Mississippi’s climate history and show that there is no 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.
There is little observational evidence of unusual long-term climate changes taking place that could be linked to anthropogenic “global warming.” Any efforts to mitigate future climate change by legislation to curtail greenhouse gas emissions from Indiana are doomed to fail – no matter how great the proposed emissions reductions. A complete cessation of all greenhouse gas emissions from… Read More »
Journalists must separate the story. It makes for more copy when the reader’s eye wobbles over to another column space or the ear off into the increasing din of aural messaging surrounding us. By the time they get back to the original story the reader is ready for a detailed description of the coin’s other side, so to… Read More »
Gore: The Arctic is warming at an unprecedented rate. New research, which draws upon recently declassified data collected by U.S. nuclear submarines traveling under the Arctic ice cap for the last 50 years, has given us, for the first time, a three-dimensional view of the ice cap, and researchers at the Naval Postgraduate School have told us that… Read More »
Yet again, rent-seeking “scientists” bidding for wealth, power, and glory at taxpayers’ expense have used computer games divorced from observed reality as the basis for making absurd, extravagant, scientifically-baseless, and now rather tired and shop-worn predictions that climatic doom will ensue unless the world shuts down two-thirds of its economic activity. To save the planet, burn more CO2.
