Alternate New York Times Headline: ‘Global Warming Saves Civilization’
Like Beauty, the interpretation of scientific data is often in the eye of the beholder. I’m an engineer with more than a smattering of book-learning in the geologic sciences. It has always struck me as appalling that the scientists who would reorder our very lives around their interpretation of climate science and its implications for our future have so little interest in earth history and | Read More »
HuffPo: ‘Global Warming Causes Volcanoes’
Huffington Post blogger DK Matai’s bio claims him to be “an engineer turned entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist with a keen interest in the well being of global society”. If this guy is an engineer, then I’m Lady Gaga. Did you ever notice that these warming alarmists have a habit of just making stuff up? In a weekend post titled Are Global Warming, Volcanoes and Earthquakes | Read More »
‘Global Warming Causes Earthquakes.’ Suuuuure it does.
In a CNN commentary entitled Is the Earth Striking Back?, journalist and author Alan Weisman opines on the relationship between Anthropogenic Global Warming and a recent spate of powerful earthquakes: As [the glaciers] flow off the land, we are warned, seas rise. Yet something else is lately worrying geologists: the likelihood that the Earth’s crust, relieved of so much formidable weight of ice borne for | Read More »
Global Warming: What Are The Chances?
Oxford University’s Tim Palmer is a professor of climate physics. In an interview for an article in Sunday’s Guardian, “Feel free to doubt climate change: just don’t deny it”, he touched on climate skepticism, “denialism”, and a topic not often broached by the Climate Change community: Uncertainty. You may be confident that your house will not burn down this year, but you would be considered | Read More »
Climate Skeptics = Terrorists!
Individuals who made Freedom of Information inquiries of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit have come under police scrutiny, including interviews to determine their political beliefs, scientific qualifications, and details regarding computer usage, according to an article in The Financial Times. [Link requires registration.] Even more troubling, local police are being aided in their investigation by members of the National Domestic Extremism Team, | Read More »
Monster Chiller Horror Global Warming!
This headline/subhead in The Guardian (UK) reminds me of the plot of a really bad 1950s monster movie: Global warming monitoring needs to find ‘missing heat’, say scientists Further study on oceans needed before hidden heat ‘comes back to haunt us’, say researchers in Colorado So, Global Warming Is Going to Kill Us All!!! And what makes it really scary: we don’t even know where | Read More »
Manbearpig lives (at least in AlGore’s mind)
We all thought that the myth of Manbearpig was finally settled after the Climategate. It showed what many of us have known all along but could not prove, that much of the Global Warming Climate Change Manbearpig data was suspect and most likely altered or skewed to a certain outcome. But give some props to AlGore for his stubbornness. I am serial. He is still | Read More »

Let’s Test Climate ‘Science’ With Real Science
Remember the one about Indonesian peat fires? How the large scale peat fires in 1997 contributed carbon dioxide in amounts up to 40% of a typical year’s global carbon output? Do you recall that the very next year, 1998, is touted as one of the warmest on record? If saving the planet means drastically reducing carbon emissions, why not start with Indonesia? For all its | Read More »
DHS: Fossil Fuels and Climate Change are ‘National Threats’
On February 1, Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security released a 108-page report to Congress, the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review Report. Subtitled “A Strategic Framework for a Secure Homeland”, a quick glance at the report left me questioning whether the DHS is more serious about Homeland Security than they are about advancing Obama Administration policy goals. The following item is in a bullet list of | Read More »
Manbearpig has been exaggerated
Tonight on KUSI, there will be a special about Global Warming (Manbearpig). It was inspired by the leak of the CRU emails and files that have shown that much of what we have heard from the so-called Climate experts has been manipulated and for the most part totally wrong. In the famous Hockey Stick graph, they leave out many well documented Climate changes that show | Read More »
Here is a few videos about Manbearpig (Climate Change) and why we should not have any kind of a law or legislation coming form the shindig in Copenhagen. The Earth’s Climate is in constant change and we have no way of controlling it. Via KUSI John Coleman Joseph D’Aleo Richard Lindzen Willie Soon Cross posted at Stix Blog, Blogivists and Sidetick
The Anti-Cap and Trade Video That Embarrassed the EPA
Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel are lawyers in the Environmental Protection Agency’s San Francisco office. They are also married to each other. Williams and Zabel are Global Warming “true believers”. They’ve done the research, and they think the Waxman-Markey-Boxer-Kerry Cap and Trade scheme is a very bad idea. So they wrote a position paper for the website www.carbonfees.org. They wrote an editorial that was published | Read More »
Nutty Professors Question the Settled Science of Global Warming Climate Change
H/T Cooler Heads Digest, Competitive Enterprise Institute An article in the USA Today Science Fair blog highlights a study published online in Nature Geoscience. Researchers from Rice University, UC-Santa Cruz and the University of Hawaii at Manoa dare to challenge the State Religion scientific dogma (now there’s an oxymoron for you) that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere alone is sufficient to predict | Read More »
