NEW MARSHALL INSTITUTE PAPER ANSWERS FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
Science

Posted 18 August 2015

An important new George C Marshall Institute paper begins: "The purpose of this document is to identify fundamental questions about climate change and provide straightforward answers that separate fact from speculation and advocacy. The most important fact is that the repeated assertion that 'the science is settled' is not only wrong but contrary to the scientific process. Science is never settled. Theories are continuously refined by the discovery of new knowledge, and sometimes long-settled 'consensus' is completely upended."  Author James V DeLong suceeds in his purpose with brilliant but simple clarity.

KANSAS STATE REP, A GEOPHYSICIST, REBUTS OFFICIAL "RUBBISH"
Science

Posted 17 August 2015

How is this for putting the record straight? Representative Dennis E Hedke, chairman of the Energy & Environment Committee of the House of Representatives of the State of Kansas in the U.S., himself a geophysicist by profession, was so disturbed by misleading claims made by a State energy official, that he penned and copied to others a letter of rebuttal that is a masterpiece, deserving the widest possible distribution, which is why we post it here.

IS OZONE RECOVERY WARMING THE ATMOSPHERE - AND AFFIRMING SOLAR VARIABILITY?
Science

Posted 15 August 2015

"The climate community has repeatedly dismissed solar variance as a key driver of rising temperatures during the 20th century. But their reasoning may have a key flaw, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) unwittingly supplying the evidence." Thus begins a guest post by Steven Capozzola to the website WattsUpWithThat.

A BINDING AGREEMENT TO NON-BINDING TARGETS LOOKS LIKELY AT PARIS CLIMATE CONFERENCE
Policy

Posted 12 August 2015

"The first council of Nicea, held 1690 years ago this summer, decided upon a consensus about the nature of God, namely that the son had been 'begotten not made, being of one substance with the father,' as Athanasius argued, and not created out of nothing as Arius argued. Phew. Glad they settled that.   The 21st conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as 'the 11th session of the meeting of the parties to the Kyoto protocol', in Paris this December, will be scarcely less theological." Viscount Matt Ridley blogs about the relevance (or lack of it?) of the Paris climate conference.

SEE AND HEAR HOW THE SUN, CLOUDS AND COSMIC RAYS CONTROL EARTH'S CLIMATE
Science

Posted 11 August 2015

What many are already calling the most convincing explanation of how a combination of the Sun, clouds and cosmic rays control Earth's climates is contained in this 52-minute YouTube presentation below by Professors Henrik Svensmark, Nir Shaviv and Jan Veizer. Then follows a link to an earlier Nigel Calder article on Svensmark's theories on clouds.

KEEPING IT SIMPLE: THE VALUE OF AN IRREDUCIBLY SIMPLE CLIMATE MODEL
Science

Posted 10 August 2015

Computer modelling is an intrinsic element of the climate change debate, usually framed in terms that baffle lay observers (e.g. General Circulation Models, or GCMs). Recently, mathematics scientist Viscount Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, Dr Willie Soon and others questioned the accuracy of models quoted by climate alarmists, and predictably attracted a barrage of criticism and abuse. In this high-level post, they reply to their critics.
