Observed Climate Change & the Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse Gas Emision in Iowa

By | March 19, 2009

Summary for Policy Makers The Iowa Climate Change Advisory Council was established in the Iowa legislative session of 2007 and charged “with identifying opportunities for Iowa to respond to the challenge of global climate change by becoming more energy efficient and energy independent while spurring economic growth.” In December of 2008, the Advisory Council submitted a proposal to… Read More »

Global Warming Is Not Happening

By | February 27, 2009

The “global warming apocalypse” scare has the potential greatly to enrich scientists, academics, industrialists, and politicians willing to take unscrupulous advantage of it. However, we should do some due diligence before we join in reaping the considerable but short-lived rewards available to those who parrot the scientifically-baseless orthodoxy.

Carbon Credits: Another Corrupt Currency? The real hockey-stick graph

By | February 2, 2009

  Summary for Policy Makers Carbon credits are a form of fiat currency, yet as calls for carbon trading grow, ironically, another fiat currency collapses—destroying life savings, wiping out jobs, and taking down historic institutions overnight. Fiat money has a long history of failure, corruption and fraud. The inevitable booms, busts and inflation act as an invisible tax,… Read More »

“Warming freezes the Southern Ocean,”Another Mann-made Climate Change

By | January 26, 2009

In late January 2009, the once-respected “science” journal Nature published the results of a computer model apparently showing that nearly all of the Antarctic continent had not cooled over the past 50 years, as the real-world observational data showed, but had warmed instead. The newly-created “warming” was achieved not by direct observation, which has long produced inconvenient cooling,… Read More »

Alaska Climate Change

By | January 25, 2009

The climate of Alaska has changed considerably over the past 50-plus years. However, human emissions of greenhouse gases are not the primary reason. Instead, the timing of the swings of a periodic, natural cycle-the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO)-has made a strong imprint on the observed climate of Alaska since the mid-20th century. Despite its established existence and influence,… Read More »

United States and Global Data Integrity Issues

By | January 25, 2009

Issues with the United States and especially the global data bases make them inadequate to use for trend analysis and thus any important policy decisions based on climate change. These issues include inadequate adjustments for urban data, bad instrument siting, use of instruments with proven biases that are not adjusted for, major global station dropout., an increase in… Read More »

CO2, Global Warming and Coral Reefs: Prospects for the Future

By | January 12, 2009

Summary for Policy Makers One of the long-recognized potential consequences of the ongoing rise in the air’s CO2 content is CO2-induced global warming, which has been predicted to pose a number of problems for both natural and managed ecosystems in the years ahead. Of newer concern, in this regard, are the effects that the ongoing rise in the… Read More »
