A penetrating comment by an American science professor Dr Steve Koonin, writing in the "Wall Street Journal" about the history of "last chance"predictions of a climate crisis.
CLINTEL (the Climate Intelligence Foundation) has carried out a preliminary review of the IPCC Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the AR6 WGI report (on the Physical Science) just issued. It appears that the SPM is, as in previous reports, prone to data exaggeration and so provides little objective basis for policymaking. Surprisingly, climate scientists from IPCC-circles only last week admitted that their new AR6 generation of climate models are ‘overheated’ and therefore too alarmist.
Distinguished New Zealand meteorologist Dr John Maunder reports on minimal changes in temperature in the troposphere: "The chart created by the University if Alabama, Huntsville, USA, shows that since 1979, when reliable satellite observations became available, there has been little overall trend in the average tropospheric temperatures, apart from milder/warmer temperatures since about 1997, and two significant warm periods associated with the El Nino events in 1998 and 2015-16."
There are no more distinguished or highly credentialed experts in climatology in the world than Professors Richard Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor Emeritus of atmospheric sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and William Happer, the Cyrus Fogg Bracket Professor Emeritus, of physics at Princeton University. In this detailed scientific analysis posted at National Review, they explain why there is no climate emergency.
In a report for the UK's Global Warming Policy Foundation, Dr Ralph B Alexander cites details from official documents that show a decline in extreme weather events during 2020, causing less deaths. Dr Alexander, a Ph.D in physics from the University of Oxford, is a professor at Wayne State University in Detroit.
Danish climate analyst Bjorn Lomborg's latest post: "To tackle climate change, rich nations are promising to end fossil fuel use in 29 years. As this becomes excruciatingly costly, the G7 is now thinking about making the world’s poor pay for it. That will go badly. The rich world has seen incredible development on the back of enormous increases in mostly fossil fuel energy. A couple of hundred years ago, most available power came from backbreaking human work. Even by the end of the 1800s, human labour made up 94 per cent of all industrial work in the US. Today, it constitutes just 8 per cent...Despite green protestations, rich people still get 79 per cent of their energy from fossil fuels. Ending that will be hard, socially destabilising and surprisingly ineffective."
Distinguished New Zealand meteorologist Dr John Maunder explains how the behaviour of the Sun is measured by "sunspots" and how the Sun is clearly the dominating element in effecting natural cyclical changes in the climates of Plant Earth. He also explains the origin of the cooler periods named after his famous namesake, the Maunder Minimum.
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.
We thank New Zealand's most-widely-read blog, "Whaleoil Beef Hooked" for having the courage to be the only news medium to publish this article by John Rofe, a specialist in fraud detection. His paper tells us: "The time has come for reality to displace the elaborate fiction created under the auspices of the United Nations directed climate change fraud. It has long been known that CO2 is colourless, odourless, non-toxic at atmospheric concentrations and essential for the survival of all life on earth. Further, more atmospheric CO2 means more plant food to help the greening of the planet. Less atmospheric CO2 means all plant life suffers because it is so essential to support photosynthesis. The charade of any political party that refers to itself as 'green' attempting to tax CO2 and thereby reduce its concentration is bizarre in the extreme". James Shaw should be ashamed of his role in this fraud." We recommend also the GSM video linked in the Rofe paper.
Chris Morrison writes in The Conservative Woman: "It has been an encouraging start to the contest for the year’s loopiest climate story. It has been an encouraging start to the contest for the year’s loopiest climate story."
The MUST of all must-reads on climate change: This Powerpoint history by Greek Professor Demetris Koutsoyiannis recalls that climate change was adopted as a means of world government by a small group of eugenicists who wanted to limit Earth's population, HIghlights: World salvation from climate threats through global governance is the garment dressing the monster of totalitarian world control. We do not need saviours, who claim that they will save the planet, the humankind or the human race. History teaches that what we really need is to save ourselves (and our societies) from these anti-humanist saviours. Also, we need to protect freedom, democracy and education, which are currently under (unprecedented?) global attack. It took World War 2 to get rid of eugenics and human species salvation; will the COVID 19 crisis suffice to get rid of climate salvation?
Ron Clutz writes at "Science Matters": " TTLs (lower troposphere temperatures) include mixing above the oceans and probably some influence from nearby more volatile land temps, They started their recent cooling later that SSTs from HadSST3 but are now showing the same pattern. It seems obvious that despite the three El Ninos, their warming has not persisted, and without them it would probably have cooled since 1995. Of source, the future has not yet been written."
"If substantiated, this research blows the man-made global warming theory (anthropogenic forcing) right out of the water. This is huge. The effect for us is huge. We can abandon the politically and financially motivated Paris Accord and put the man-made climate change myth where it belongs – in the fairy tale section of school libraries. Solar variability is the knife through the heart of man-made global warming." LINK
The World Climate Declaration was initiated in 2019 by emeritus professor Guus Berkhout, founder of the Dutch Climate Intelligence Foundation (CLINTEL). The list of 816 signatories is a living document that is regularly updated with new additions. The most up-to-date version can be found on www.clintel.org. The declaraton is headed "There is No Climate Emergency" and contains detailed evidence to support this fact. The honorary secretary of our Coaltiion, Terry Dunleavy MBE, is New Zealand Ambassador for Clintel.
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...
Thanks to Australian colleague, Professor Cliff Ollier, we are able to post papers from the Porto Climate Conference 2018 (7/8 September) held at Porto University, Portugal. These papers are a veritable treasure trove of the scientific realities of climate change, countering all of the alarmist propaganda topics. Papers begin at page 9, download takes a few seconds, but well worth reading in full.
