Biofuels – Summary Update from CO2 Science

By | August 15, 2008

In a world where food is fast becoming scarce in many places, it seems strange indeed to use the planet’s land and water resources for growing anything else, as we note in our critique of Sir John Houghton’s Creation Care Crusade, which is described by Feder (2007). In this regard, for example, Johansson and Azar (2007) analyzed what… Read More »

Testimony of Dr. Roy Spencer at Senate Public Works Committee

By | July 21, 2008

I would like to thank Senator Boxer and members of the Committee for allowing me to discuss my experiences as a NASA employee engaged in global warming research, as well as to provide my current views on the state of the science of global warming and climate change. I have a PhD in Meteorology from the University of… Read More »

Internal Radiative Forcing And The Illusion Of A Sensitive Climate System

By | April 23, 2008

1. Background Many of us, especially those who were trained as meteorologists, have long questioned the climate research community’s reliance on computerized climate models for global warming projections. In contrast to our perception that the real climate system is constantly readjusting to internal fluctuations in ways that stabilize the system, climate models built upon measured climate behavior invariably… Read More »

The Government Grant System: Inhibitor of Truth and Innovation?

By | April 21, 2008

Flush with success in creating an atom bomb, the U.S. federal government decided it should start funding nonmilitary scientific research. A government report titled "Science, the Endless Frontier" provides the justification for doing this. It makes the case that "science is the responsibility of government because new scientific knowledge vitally affects our health, our jobs, and our national… Read More »

Has the IPCC inflated the feedback factor?

By | April 10, 2008

In the IPCC’s methodology, climate sensitivity ?T? to radiative forcing is the product of three factors: Tropopausal radiative forcing, the no-feedbacks climate sensitivity parameter, and the feedback multiplier.

The IPCC: On the Run at Last

By | March 27, 2008

A soprano thrillingly hits her top-A, sighs with relief at achieving the desired effect, and moves on. But not the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) whose climate alarmism started to crescendo in 2001 in the Third Assessment Report (3AR) with the statement that “most of the observed warming over the last 50 years is likely (>66% probable)… Read More »

How Not To Measure Temperature: Los Angeles, the City

By | March 27, 2008

This is the city. Los Angeles, California. I study weather stations here. I carry a thermometer. My name’s Anthony. The story you are about to see is true; the names have been changed to protect the innocent. The day was Monday, March 24th, four days after the vernal equinox. It started out like any other day, with a… Read More »

Scientific Consensus on Climate Change?

By | March 24, 2008

FEAR of anthropogenic “global warming” can adversely affect patients’ well-being. Accordingly, the state of the scientific consensus about climate change was studied by a review of the 539 papers on “global climate change” found on the Web of Science database from January 2004 to mid-February 2007, updating research by Oreskes (2004), who had reported that between 1993 and… Read More »
