How We Know They Are Lying

By | August 14, 2013

It is to some extent forgivable when people adopt extreme positions out of misapprehension or delusion. It is quite another matter if they mislead others by deliberate falsehood. Politicians, of course, treat the lie as part of their professional equipment. Indeed, in some circumstances they are obliged to use it (when, for example, telling the truth about the… Read More »

On the Present Halting of Global Warming

By | July 23, 2013

Abstract: The rise in global average temperature over the last century has halted since roughly the year 2000, despite the fact that the release of CO2 into the atmosphere is still increasing. It is suggested here that this interruption has been caused by the suspension of the near linear (+ 0.5 °C/100 years or 0.05 °C/10 years) temperature… Read More »

Solar and Planetary Oscillation, Control on Climate Change: Hind-cast, Forecast and a Comparison of the CMIP5 GCMs

By | July 18, 2013

ABSTRACT Global surface temperature records (e.g. HadCRUT4) since 1850 are characterized by climatic oscillations synchronous with specific solar, planetary and lunar harmonics superimposed on a background warming modulation. The latter is related to a long millennial solar oscillation and to changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere (e.g. aerosol and greenhouse gases). However, current general circulation climate… Read More »

Spinning the Climate, The Intergovernmental Pannel on Climate Change (IPCC)

By | May 21, 2013

The IPCC is claimed by some to have provided evidence that the earth’s climate is harmed by changes in the atmospheric concentrations. of greenhouse gases. These claims are false. This report explains how dubious observations and some genuine science has been distorted and “spun” to support a global campaign to limit human emissions of certain greenhouse gases which… Read More »

Cook “The Books” is Wrong to Slam Roy Spencer

By | May 7, 2013

Anyone who has met Roy Spencer knows him to be a careful, thoughtful, unpolemical scientist of formidable skill and knowledge. With John Christy he presents the monthly real-world data from the microwave sounding unit satellites that provide the least inaccurate global temperature record we have. The satellites reveal the inconvenient truth that there has been no global warming… Read More »

The Unbalance Sheet

By | November 22, 2012

The concept of the balance sheet is important to the provision of information over a wide range of human activities, particularly in science and finance. The weasel words Off Balance Sheet have historically been used by shady businesses to hide items that represent hidden liabilities and risks[1]. They were a significant factor in the build up to the… Read More »
