MODELLING CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY DECISIONS USING A PROBABILITY TREE TELLS A DIFFERENT STORY
Science

 Posted 23 September 2016

"The scientific community must be able to show with a very high level of confidence, that reducing or ceasing human activity associated with greenhouse gas emissions will reverse global warming. If this is not possible, policymakers should assume that global warming is essentially unstoppable and consider defence measures as the most prudent policy approach." In a post to WattsUpWithThat, MIchael Cochrane writes: "Policy solutions undertaken to deal with AGW [man-made global warming], on the premise that it is dangerous (DAGW), will have massive monetary and non-monetary costs to society. Such high costs demand a correspondingly high degree of certainty regarding the likelihood of possible future scenarios."

CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR'S CLAIM ABOUT EXTREME CLIMATE CHANGE IS "UTTER NONSENSE"
Science

Posted 23 September 2016

Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition writes in a US newspaper: "In his September 8 speech announcing California's new greenhouse emission laws, Governor Jerry Brown said: 'If we don't stop climate change, it's not going to be 110 [degrees] in Imperial County, it's going to be 130, 135! Not for a few days or a few weeks, but for months on end."  Brown's statement is ridiculous, no matter what you believe about the causes of climate change. Even if humanity vanished from the face of the Earth, climate would continue to change. It is as much a part of the natural world as is sunrise or gravity. Brown's assertion that we could be responsible for a warming of 25 degrees is utter nonsense."

GEOSCIENCE SOCIETY OF NEW ZEALAND HAS SPECIAL NEWSLETTER AS TRIBUTE TO LATE PROFESSOR BOB CARTER
Science

Posted 17 August 2016

"People that I hoped would be there forever have begun to vanish.....The Austraian scientist Bob Carter died far too young.  The climate change orthodoxy can be a tough proposition to be sceptical about if you mind being accused of betraying the future of the human race.  Carter knew how to maintain a gentlemanly vocalbulary even when the guardians of dogma were calling him names.  It's hard trick to work: sometimes it's just easier to join in and call your persecutors intensely dense.  But Carter always behaved as if they might have a point. Perhaps he was working on the principle that politeness is an argument in itself....." Clive James, quoted in a special 76-page supplement by the Geoscience Society of New Zealand  pahing tribute to the late Professor Robert M. (Bob) Carter.

HOW AND WHY THE WORLD WAS DECEIVED ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE
Science

Posted 4 August 2016

"Current weather is normal; that is, it is well within the range of all previous weather and climate variations. There are no dramatic increases in temperature, precipitation, hurricanes, tornadoes or any other severe weather. The climate is changing just as it always has and always will and the rate of change is perfectly normal. Of course, that is not what the government, environmentalists, or the media promote and as a result most of the public believe. The misconception is deliberate and central to the exploitation of global warming and climate change as the vehicle for a political agenda." Distinguished Canadian climate scientist, Professor Tim Ball, posts at The Rebel.
