Australian author Tony Thomas posts at Quadrant: "Adult climate catastrophists have flipped to censorship, abuse and hysteria to back tomorrow’s climate-truant kids and the latest UN gabfest in New York on Monday. The ‘progressive’ media has dropped its mask of objectivity, with more than 170 global...
Professor Bjorn Lomborg writes in "The Australian" newspaper: "Alarming media stories that twist the facts about rising sea levels are dangerous because they scare people unnecessarily and push policymakers towards excessively expensive measures to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. The real solution is to lift the world’s poorest out of poverty and protect them with simple infrastructure."
Viscount Monckton of Brenchley has sent a strongly-worded message to the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury: "In this message for the New Year, I invite both of you to make a new resolution: 'I will no longer curry favour with the global governing elite by spouting fashionably fatuous, scientifically spurious, preposterously pietistic platitudes about the imagined – and imaginary – threat of global warming. Instead I will do what the Lord of Life did. I will speak up for the 1.2 billion people worldwide who are poor, and who will be condemned to remain poor because they are denied access to electrical power. I will demand that coal-fired power stations be built at once, for coal is plentiful and provides the cheapest and most reliable energy supply.'
A new paper published by researchers form the University of Turku in Finland suggests that even though observed changes in the climate are real, the effects of human activity on these changes are insignificant. The team suggests that the idea of man-made climate change is a mere miscalculation or skewing the formulas by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
An American blog, "Climatism", posts comments by 46 people who have been expert reviewers of reports by the UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and have subsequently questioned its accuracy and its integrity.
Dr David Whitehouse, of the Global Warming Policy Foundation in London has been looking at how nature has reacted to forecasts of global warming, and shows that the rise in CO2 levels has not been accompanied by the claimed increases in temperature.
Tony Thomas posts cogently at Quadrant in Australia: "Warmists' predictions of climate doom haven't come to pass or anything like it, but give them credit for agility and perseverance in always concocting a fresh scare. The latest meme to keep grants flowing and careers on track: the purported mass die-off of species large and small."
Extract from a reply by astronaut Harrison Schmitt on climate change: "Right now, in my profession[geology], there is no evidence. There are models. But models of very, very complex natural systems are often wrong. The observations that we make as geologists, and observational climatologists, do not show any evidence that human beings are causing this. Now, there is a whole bunch of unknowns."
This is a second posting of a paper by three of the world's most distinguished climate science authorities: Professors Will Happer, Steven Koonin and Richard Lindzen, which some of our followers have had difficulty in accessing from our website. It is a convincing and timeless document, that concludes: "Projections of future climate and weather events rely on models demonstrably unfit for the purpose. As a result, rising levels of CO2 do not obviously pose an immediate, let alone imminent, threat to the earth’s climate."

Dr Roger Higgs, Geoclastica Ltd, posts at Electroverse: "We urgently need to expose the ‘CO2 = pollutant’ fallacy being forced upon your children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces by schools, universities, governments and mainstream media worldwide, and to denounce it in scrupulously truthful terms easily understood by the public, including those youngsters themselves. Here are 25 simple bullet points:
Agrobiologist and scientific researcher Dr. Albrecht Glatzle, author of over 100 scientific papers and two textbooks, posts at WattsUpWithThat: “Our key conclusion is there is no need for anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), and even less so for livestock-born emissions, to explain climate change. Climate has always been changing, and even the present warming is most likely driven by natural factors. The warming potential of anthropogenic GHG emissions has been exaggerated, and the beneficial impacts of manmade CO2 emissions for nature, agriculture, and global food security have been systematically suppressed, ignored, or at least downplayed by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and other UN (United Nations) agencies."
But, this should be read with the Allison-Sheahen paper (see link below). The WUWT article argues that the amount of methane emitted by animals is greatly overstated by the IPCC, and there isn't very much methane.The Allison-Sheahen paper explains that no matter how many animals there are (or how much methane), the realities of the infrared spectrum and the way competing molecules (especially H2O) absorb photons makes CH4 (methane) completely irrelevant.
Dr Roy Spencer explains about the icy coldness now gripping parts iof Canada and US: "For as long as we have had weather records (extending back into the 1800s), lobes of cold air rotating generally from west to east around the polar vortex sometimes extend down into the U.S. causing wild winter weather and general unpleasantness.....We used to call this process 'weather'. Now it’s called 'climate change'”.
Guest poster to the New Zealand blog, TheBDF, Max Sky, explains why the Marxist origins of climate change alarmism is a pagan cult.
John Eisdon posts at "The American Thinker" how the real aim of U.N. officials in pushing climate hysteria is to end capitalism throughout the world.
The Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Petteri Taalas, says that the alarmist narrative on climate change has gone off the rails and criticised the news media for provoking unjustified anxiety. Speaking to Finland’s financial newspaper Talouselämä (“The Journal”) on 6 September 2019, Petteri Taalas called for cooler heads to prevail, saying that he does not accept arguments that the end of the world is at hand: "It is not going to be the end of the world. The world is just becoming more challenging. In parts of the globe living conditions are becoming worse, but people have survived in harsh conditions."
Dr Benny Peiser, GWPF says Taalas statement is "unprecedented":
Our Coalition chairman, Hon Barry Brill, has welcomed the tutorial produced by three eminent US professors to help a California judge gain an understanding of the arguments involved in the 'global warming' debate now known as 'climate change'(see items dated April 2 below).
"Few world leaders are lining up to deliver what UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had in mind when he called them together for a New York conference to boost ambition. The New York meeting, scheduled for September 23, was conceived as a show of global defiance at US President Donald Trump’s decision to ditch the Paris Agreement. Rather than a competition for more robust action, as was intended, the New York agenda looks deflated.". Graham Lloyd writes in 'The Australian'.
Dr Judith Curry describes how valid conclusions often lay hidden within research reports, masked by plausible but unjustified conclusions reached in those reports. And how the IPCC institutionalizes such masking errors in climate science.
