Killing Wildlife in the Name of Climate Change E-mail
Written by Robert Bryce

The facts show that federally subsidized efforts that are being undertaken to, in theory, address climate change, are damaging America’s wildlife. Furthermore, those same efforts have, for years, been allowing an entire industry to avoid federal prosecution under some of America’s oldest wildlife laws.

Natural Resource Adaptation: Protecting Resources and Economies E-mail

There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years. If there were such a proof it would be written down for all to see. No actual proof, as it is understood in science, exists.

The Final Final IPCC AR5 WGI Report E-mail
Written by Dr. Vincent Gray   
Friday, 21 February 2014 22:59

The Fifth Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change WGI Report Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis has at last appeared on the IPCC website at http://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg1/.

The last Fifth Report, which was received at Stockholm in September 2013, approved the Summary for Policymakers but merely accepted the rest of the Report, pending further amendment. They published the entire “accepted” Report in a form that claimed it was merely a draft with the declaration: “Do not Cite, Quote or Distribute”.

The “Final, Final” Report was published on the 30th of January, with a press statement at https://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/press/press_release_wg1_full_report.pdf.

It still appears to be incomplete.

The Scientific Method E-mail
Written by Vincent Gray   
Wednesday, 22 January 2014 07:20

Science is supposed to take place by the use of the “Scientific Method” defined in the following way.

THE FREE DICTIONARY “The principles and empirical processes of discovery and demonstration considered characteristic of or necessary for scientific investigation, generally involving the observation of phenomena, the formulation of a hypothesis concerning the phenomena, experimentation to demonstrate the truth or falseness of the hypothesis, and a conclusion that validates or modifies the hypothesis”

Judith Curry's Statement to the Committee on Environment and Public Works of the US Senate E-mail
Written by Dr. Judith Curry   
Monday, 20 January 2014 20:13

I am increasingly concerned that both the climate change problem and its solution have been vastly oversimplified. My research on understanding the dynamics of uncertainty at the climate science-policy interface has led me to question whether these dynamics are operating in a manner that is healthy for either the science or the policy process.[1] I see a growing gap between what science is currently providing in terms of information about climate variability and change, and the information needed to understand and manage associated risks. – Dr. Judith Curry

The Positive Externalities of Carbon Dioxide E-mail
Written by Craig D. Idso, Ph. D.   
Monday, 21 October 2013 00:00

Advancements in technology and scientific expertise that accompanied the Industrial Revolution initiated a great transformation within the global enterprise of agriculture. More efficient machinery and improved plant cultivars, for example, paved the way toward higher crop yields and increased global food production. And with the ever-burgeoning population of the planet, the increase in food production was a welcomed societal benefit. But what remained largely unknown to society at that time, was the birth of an ancillary aid to agriculture that would confer great benefits upon future inhabitants of the globe in the decades and centuries to come. The source of that aid: atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2).

Response to the Scare-Mongering of the Financial Times E-mail
Written by Christopher Monckton   
Tuesday, 03 September 2013 19:31

A recent article in the Financial Times reproduced on the internet recently by CNBC (http://www.cnbc.com/id/100912062), is predicated on the assumption that there has been a “record decline in Arctic sea ice”. However, the data on sea-ice extent only go back to 1979. And they show the Arctic sea ice declining but Antarctic sea ice increasing, so that the global decline in sea-ice extent is not very great.

Polar Bears Have Not Been Harmed by Sea Ice Declines in Summer - The Evidence E-mail
Written by Dr. Susan J. Crockford   
Thursday, 22 August 2013 12:39

The polar bear biologists and professional activists of the IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) continue to insist that since 1979 increasingly smaller amounts of Arctic sea ice left at the end of summer (the September ice minimum) have already caused harm to polar bears. They contend that global warming due to CO2 from fossil fuels (“climate warming” in their lexicon) is the cause of this decline in summer ice.

How We Know They Are Lying E-mail
Written by John Brignell   
Tuesday, 13 August 2013 20:38

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 economy would cause a run on the currency). In science, up to recent times, there is no circumstance in which a deliberate falsehood is justifiable. It requires at a minimum being drummed out of one’s learned society.

All that has changed with the rise of authoritarian government.

On the Present Halting of Global Warming E-mail
Written by Syun-Ichi Akasofu   
Tuesday, 23 July 2013 18:06

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 increase over the last two centuries, due to recovery from the Little Ice Age, by a superposed multi-decadal oscillation of a 0.2 °C amplitude and a 50~60 year period, which reached its positive peak in about the year 2000—a halting similar to those that occurred around 1880 and 1940. Because both the near linear change and the multi-decadal oscillation are likely to be natural changes (the recovery from the Little Ice Age (LIA) and an oscillation related to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), respectively), they must be carefully subtracted from temperature data before estimating the effects of CO2.
