Response to Author Smith’s Critique of Christopher Monckton’s “Climate Sensitivity Reconsidered”

By | August 4, 2008

"In the July 2008 edition of Physics and Society, a paper by Christopher Monckton entitled Climate Sensitivity Reconsidered caused considerable interest when the Society, which had invited Monckton to submit the paper and then published it, decided a week after publication, and without Monckton’s knowledge or consent, to add a prefatory disclaimer to the paper.

“Chuck it Again Schmidt!”

By | July 29, 2008

For the second time, the FalseClimate propaganda blog, founded by two co-authors of the now-discredited “hockey-stick” graph by which the UN’s climate panel tried unsuccessfully to abolish the mediaeval warm period, has launched a malevolent, scientifically-illiterate, and unscientifically-ad-hominem attack on a publication by me. My 8000-word paper, Climate Sensitivity Reconsidered, was published in Physics and Society in July… Read More »

Observed Climate Change in Wisconsin

By | July 25, 2008

In April 2007, Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle signed Executive Order 191 creating the Governor’s Task Force on Global Warming and tasked it with developing a plan of action to reduce Wisconsin’s greenhouse gas emissions. Citing that “the failure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could raise Wisconsin temperatures, increase the severity of droughts, further reduce water levels in Lake… Read More »

Lord Monckton’s Letter to Dr. Bienenstock

By | July 19, 2008

Lord Monckton’s letter of protest to the President of the American Physical Society over the false statement that Monckton’s paper critical of the UN’s estimates for climate sensitivity for a doubling of atmospheric CO2 was not peer-reviewed. Christopher Monckton, who once advised Margaret Thatcher, demonstrates via 30 equations that computer models used by the UN’s climate panel (IPCC)… Read More »

Prejudiced Authors, Prejudiced Findings

By | July 15, 2008

The IPCC is a single-interest organisation, whose charter presumes a widespread human influence on climate, rather than consideration of whether such influence may be negligible or missing altogether. Though the IPCC’s principles also state that a wide range of views is to be sought when selecting lead authors and contributing authors, this rule has been honored more in… Read More »

Observed Climate Change in New Hampshire

By | July 15, 2008

In December 2007, New Hampshire Governor John Lynch signed an Executive Order calling for the establishment of a “Task Force to develop a Climate Change Action Plan” for the state of New Hampshire. The Task Force’s Climate Action Plan is due to the governor by September 1, 2008 and is to include a recommendation of “quantified goals for… Read More »

Observed climate change in West Virginia

By | May 12, 2008

Annual temperature: Over the course of the past 113 years, the time since statewide records have been compiled by the U.S. National Climatic Data Center, the statewide annual average temperature history of West Virginia exhibits no statistically significant trend either towards cooling or warming. Instead, the temperature history of West Virginia is dominated by inter-annual and inter-decadal variability.

Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate

By | May 2, 2008

“In his speech at the United Nations’ climate conference on September 24, 2007, Dr. Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, said it would most help the debate on climate change if the current monopoly and one-sidedness of the scientific debate over climate change by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was eliminated. He reiterated his proposal… Read More »
