Not everyone who tells us: "Listen to the science" is telling the real truth. This post explains why science is important in telling us was IS, not WHAT OUGHT TO BE.
Eminent US climate scientist, Dr Judith Curry, in a post at "Climate, Etc", writes: "The consensus building process acts to amplify personal biases, and marginalizes disagreement from either a majority opinion or the opinion of the loudest or most motivated person in the room. One can only speculate on the magnitude and importance of the biases introduced into climate science by the IPCC’s consensus seeking process."
This is the tribute by UK journalist James Delingpole to Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who has died in London at the age of 99.
Dr Jay Lehr and Tom Harris post at Americaoutloud.com why the rewriting of Earth's climate history is "the most pervasive and damaging example of scientific fraud in the history of mankind".
Bjorn Lomborg wites in "The Australian" newspeper: "Climate campaigners want to convince us that not only should we maintain these staggering costs, but that we should spend a fortune more on climate change, since our very survival is allegedly at stake. But they are mostly wrong, and we’re likely to end up wasting trillions during the coming decades. I will outline how we could spend less, do a better job addressing climate change, and help far more effectively with many of the world’s other ills."
With the New Zealand Parliament having received a Notice of Motion (since passed on 2 December 2020) declaring a "Climate Emergency", Professor Geoff Duffy, Emeritus Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Auckland sent MPs a written analysis of the many reasons why such an "emergency...
When Al Gore coined the term "carbon footprint", he and his alarmist conspirators, in their evil desire to scare the populace, seized on using the term carbon as a synonym for carbon dioxide (CO2) knowing it would conjure up visions of soot, lamp black and coal dust, none of which were warm and fuzzy. Dr Jay Lehr and Tom Harris explain this attempted brainwashing.
Distinguished Canadian climate scientist, Professor Timothy Ball rebuts claims by an American group of medical doctors that "climate change" is a threat to human health.
Anyone in doubt about why Earth, its people and its plants, needs MORE rather than less Carbon Dioxide (CO2) must watch this YouTube conversation with Professor William Happer, of Princeton University, who has been recruited by US President Donald Trump to bring scientific sense to the debate about "man-made global warming" and the greenhouse effect.
In the New Zealand Parliament, the Green Party has introduced a Bill known as the "Zero Carbon" Bill. It has passed its First Reading and been referred to the Environment Select Committee for public comment. Later this year, the Bill will have its Second Reading, at which stage the Opposition National Party is being urged to vote against it, thus putting the heat on Government Coalition partner, NZ First to decide whether the measure proceeds or goes no further. Our Climate Science Coalition chair, Hon Barry Brill has made a 5-part submission to the Select Committee urging it to recommend that the Bill is rejected:
Australian climate analyst, David Archibald, explains in full detail at WentworthReport.com, how the global warming myth was conjured up in 1980, and why, and rebuts the false claims by warmist propagandists. As Archibald says: "There is only one true path. This is dictated by physics, chemistry, and economics." THIS IS A MUST-READ.
U.S. climate analyst Roger Pielke writes at Forbes magazine: "The bottom line of this analysis should be undeniable: There is simply no evidence that the world is, or is on the brink of, making 'rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society' that would be required for the deep decarbonization associated with a 1.5°C temperature target. Anyone advocating a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030 is engaging in a form of climate theater, full of drama but not much suspense. But don’t just take it from me, do the math yourself."
Expatriate Kiwi, Dr Michael J Kelly, Emeritus Prince Philip Professor of Technology at Cambridge University has responded to the NZ Productivity Commission's Draft Paper on "Low Emissions Economy", warning that not only are New Zealand's emissions minuscule in the global context, but the costs to...
Our American NZCSC member, Dr David Wojick posts at CFact about growing recognition of the Magna Carta Universatum 2020 issued recently by CLINTEL (Climate Intelligence Foundation) in which he states: "The climate science community ought to be more honest to the public about the severe limitations of their theoretical models."
U.K. Daily Telegraph columnisty Sherrelle Jacobs writes: "This post-truth scam is having a chilling effect on science. Experts are locked in a race to the bottom to make detailed and disastrous premonitions. And despite the fact that disciplined debate is the motor of scientific discovery, eco-extremists are shutting down discussions that dissent from the Apocalypse narrative. "
This analysis indicates that the IPCC and its followers such as the US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) rely on 19th century thinking and 19th century measurement techniques. As such, the IPCC maintains erroneous scientific thinking for its thirty years of existence. (Hat tip: WattsUpWithThat...
Distinguished U.S. analyst Dr David Wojick posts at CFact: "Few people appreciate this amazing fact, that CO2 in the air is the global food supply. Our meat, fruit and veggies, also our candy and ice cream, milk and wine, are built almost entirely from carbon dioxide and water. Everything we eat and drink.There is also a bit of nitrogen, to make protein, plus a bunch of trace minerals and vitamins, but you and I are basically composed of processed H2O and CO2."
The news media should be cautious about linking hurricane activity to global warming, according to National Hurricane Center Science and Operations Officer Chris Landsea, in a posting to WattsUpWith That.
"The IPCC well knows that halving CO2 emissions in 12 years is politically impossible, economically unaffordable and climatically unnecessary." Guest essay on WattsUpWithThat by Barry Brill, chair of New Zeakabd Climate Science Coalition.
