The Warmists strike back - September 6, 2011

"If the Earth's atmosphere is reflecting more heat than thought, then the climate models are wrong. This could not stand! The editor of Remote Sensing, the publishing journal, has resigned." [More here.]


Establishment stifling CERN cosmic ray report - August 27, 2011

"CERN has joined a long line of lesser institutions obliged to remain politically correct about the man-made global warming hypothesis. It’s OK to enter “the highly political arena of the climate change debate” provided your results endorse man-made warming, but not if they support Svensmark’s heresy that the Sun alters the climate by influencing the cosmic ray influx and cloud formation."


PBS purposely ignores skeptical scientists - August 18, 2011

"Rush Limbaugh will probably howl at me for expecting the MSM to accurately report both sides of the issue, but my incessant inquiries reveal that one news outlet, PBS' NewsHour, appears unable to clearly state why skeptic scientists' viewpoints aren't worth considering."


BBC muzzles climate skeptics - July 21, 2011

"THE BBC was criticised by climate change sceptics yesterday after it emerged that their views will get less coverage because they differ from mainline scientific opinion."


East Anglia tries to silence Delingpole - April 10, 2011

Warming propagandist slapped down - October 14, 2010

"William Connolley, arguably the world’s most influential global warming advocate after Al Gore, has lost his bully pulpit. Connolley did not wield his influence by the quality of his research or the force of his argument but through his administrative position at Wikipedia, the most popular reference source on the planet. Through his position, Connolley for years kept dissenting views on global warming out of Wikipedia, allowing only those that promoted the view that global warming represented a threat to mankind. As a result, Wikipedia became a leading source of global warming propaganda, with Connolley its chief propagandist."


Warming out, 'Disruption' in - September 16, 2010

PC indoctrination at Build-A-Bear - December 22, 2009

"...it pains me to tell you that animated characters actually break into a discussion of satellite photos and that Mrs. Claus conducts a rather unscientific experiment involving ice cubes. Needless-to-say, this constitutes brainwashing on the sleaziest and most sinister level."


Wikipedia’s climate doctor - December 19, 2009

"All told, Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn’t like the subject of a certain article, he removed it — more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. ...Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement."


European police state going global? - December 17, 2009

"Today the gloves came off and the true purpose of the “global warming” scare became nakedly visible. Ugo Chavez, the Socialist president of Venezuela, blamed “global warming” on capitalism – and received a standing ovation from very nearly all of the delegates, lamentably including those from those of the capitalist nations of the West that are on the far Left – and that means too many of them. Previously Robert Mugabe, dictator of Rhodesia, who had refused to leave office when he had been soundly defeated in a recent election, had also won plaudits at the conference for saying that the West ought to pay him plenty of money in reparation of our supposed “climate debt”."


Physics group splinters over GW review - December 10, 2009

Biggest tax increase in human history - May 27, 2009

"If enacted, H. R. 2454 would be the biggest government takeover of the economy since the Second World War, which is the last time energy, food, and other basic commodities were rationed. It would also be the biggest tax increase in the history of the world and would cause a colossal transfer of wealth from consumers to big businesses."


The Climate-Industrial Complex - May 22, 2009

"Some business leaders are cozying up with politicians and scientists to demand swift, drastic action on global warming. This is a new twist on a very old practice: companies using public policy to line their own pockets."

STATEMENT BY SENATOR INHOFE: CLIMATE CHANGE HEARING - January 30, 2007

"There is no environmental issue that has become more politicized. Scientists have had their grant funding stripped, others have had their certifications threatened, and exaggerations have become commonplace. In fact, when a recent example of this was put on my web blog, there was so much concern that the 70,000 hits per hour crashed the Senate server."

Der Spiegel essay by Hans Von Storch and Nico Stehr - January 24, 2005

"[Global Warming] scientists lapse into a zeal reminiscent of nothing so much as the McCarthy era. For them, methodological criticism is the spawn of "conservative think tanks and propagandists for the oil and coal lobby," which they believe they must expose; dramatizing climate change, on the other hand, is defended as a sensible means of educating society."


"Environmentalism as Religion" speech by Michael Chrichton - September 15, 2003

4th International Conf. on Climate Change - May 16-18, 2010

"The theme for ICCC-4 will be “Reconsidering the Science and Economics.” New scientific discoveries are casting doubt on how much of the warming of the twentieth century was natural and how much was man-made, and governments around the world are beginning to confront the astronomical cost of reducing emissions. Economists, meanwhile, are calculating that the cost of slowing or stopping global warming exceeds the social benefits."


Among weathercasters, doubt on warming - March 29, 2010

Review of new climate book, "Heaven And Earth" - April 13, 2009

"The most important point to remember about Plimer is that he is Australia's most eminent geologist. As such, he thinks about time very differently from most of us. He takes the long, long view. He looks at climate over geological, archaeological, historical and modern time. He writes: "Past climate changes, sea-level changes and catastrophes are written in stone." Much of what we have read about climate change, he argues, is rubbish, especially the computer modelling on which much current scientific opinion is based, which he describes as "primitive"."


Over 700 scientists dissent from AGW claims - updated March 16, 2009

Weather Channel Founder says ‘Greatest Scam in History’ - November 11, 2007

"It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create an illusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus."

However, while only 32 papers (6%) reject the consensus outright, the largest category (48%) are neutral papers, refusing to either accept or reject the hypothesis. This is no "consensus.""


Skeptics win global warming debate in New York - March 16, 2007

"Before the start of the nearly two hour debate the audience polled 57.3% to 29.9% in favor of believing that Global Warming was a “crisis”, but following the debate the numbers completely flipped to 46.2% to 42.2% in favor of the skeptical point of view."


Allegre's second thoughts - March 5, 2007

"Claude Allegre, one of France's leading socialists and among her most celebrated scientists, was among the first to sound the alarm about the dangers of global warming."


Expert disputes hurricane link to global warming - February 23, 2007

"Chris Landsea, science and operations director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, said the notion that global warming is causing an increase in hurricanes gained widespread attention after the stormy seasons of 2004 and 2005. But that perception is wrong and the statistics don't bear it out, Landsea told about 200 students and professors..."


Cleveland weathermen downplay global warming - February 16, 2007

"It's not that [they] disbelieve the data entirely. But they're skeptical, and they don't believe that it's necessarily our fault or that we should panic over it. "We have maybe 100 years of data on a rock that's 6 billion years old," said Johnson, a WEWS Channel 5 weatherman. "Mother Nature tends to even herself out, and the fact is, the Earth is cyclical.""


Review of ten Global Warming skeptics - February 9, 2007

"Who are the global warming deniers...? To discover whether these deniers are crackpots from the fringes of academia, as their detractors so often claim, I decided to investigate scientists at odds with the UN's Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change..."


Canadian climatologist says Global Warming doesn't exist - February 5, 2007

"Believe it or not, Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science. We are wasting time, energy and trillions of dollars while creating unnecessary fear and consternation over an issue with no scientific justification."


National Post article about astrophysicist Nir Shariv - February 2, 2007

"Like many others, I was personally sure that CO2 is the bad culprit in the story of global warming. But after carefully digging into the evidence, I realized that things are far more complicated than the story sold to us by many climate scientists or the stories regurgitated by the media."

Data trends


Mosquitoes disappearing in parts of Africa - August 26, 2011

"One possibility for the reduction in numbers is climate change. Patterns of rainfall in these years were more chaotic in these regions of Tanzania and often fell outside the rainy season. The scientists say this may have disturbed the natural cycle of mosquito development."


69% say scientists have falsified GW data - August 3, 2011

"While a majority of Americans nationwide continue to acknowledge significant disagreement about global warming in the scientific community, most go even further to say some scientists falsify data to support their own beliefs."


Al Gore's hurricane predictions wrong - June 28, 2011

"During the past 6-years since Hurricane Katrina, global tropical cyclone frequency and energy have decreased dramatically, and are currently at near-historical record lows."


Is the atmosphere still warming? - April 13, 2011

"...there are a variety of other observations of the Earth’s radiative balance and ocean heat content, supporting of the “no warming” claim, by top researchers such as Douglass and Loehle. There does not appear to be any credible empirical evidence from the AGW camp that the atmosphere is still warming."


The weather isn't getting weirder - February 10, 2011

"Some climate alarmists would have us believe that these storms are yet another baleful consequence of man-made CO2 emissions. In addition to the latest weather events, they also point to recent cyclones in Burma, last winter's fatal chills in Nepal and Bangladesh, December's blizzards in Britain, and every other drought, typhoon and unseasonable heat wave around the world. But is it true?"


2010 not so warm after all - December 5, 2010

"But though it was still successfully trying to influence media headlines during Cancun last week by saying that 2010 might yet end up as the warmest year, the small print reveals the Met Office climbdown. Last year it predicted that the 2010 average would be 14.58C. Last week, this had been reduced to 14.52C."


Eastern seaboard summers and AGW lies - August 12, 2010

"Interesting theory! Only problem is that summers have been generally getting cooler across those regions for the last 80 years."


GISS generating temperature data - July 26, 2010

"GISS has determined that the Arctic is warming rapidly across vast distances where they have no 250 km data (pink.) A way to prove there’s no data in the region for yourself is by using the GISTEMP Map locator..."


NASA invents warm Finland - April 15, 2010

"GISS station values are even more spectacular, the warmest March on record is set in every Finnish station GISS is following. For instance, according to GISS, the mean March temperature in Sodankylä (61402836000) was a remarkable +1.5 °C beating the old record (-2.2 °C) from 1920 by 3.7 °C! Well, according to the Finnish Meteorological Institute, March 2010 was colder than usual all over Finland, especially in the northern part. For instance, the mean temperature in Sodankylä was -10.3 °C, which is almost three degrees below the base period 1971-2000 average (-7.5 °C). So the GISS March value for Sodankylä is off by amazing 11.8 °C!"


Hockey stick graph attacked - April 14, 2010

"Professor David Hand, president of the Royal Statistical Society, said that a graph shaped like an ice hockey stick that has been used to represent the recent rise in global temperatures had been compiled using “inappropriate” methods. “It used a particular statistical technique that exaggerated the effect [of recent warming],” he said."


Data compromised by sensor locations - February 26, 2010

"A critical cog in the machinery that drives the theory of global warming may be compromised, as temperature sensors across the U.S. appear to be exposed to heat sources that some critics say is corrupting their information."


Britain's weather office proposes do-over - February 23, 2010

"At a meeting Monday of 150 climate scientists, representatives of Britain's weather office proposed that the world's climatologists start all over again and produce a new trove of global temperature data that is open to public scrutiny and "rigorous" peer review."


World may not be warming - February 14, 2010

"The United Nations climate panel faces a new challenge with scientists casting doubt on its claim that global temperatures are rising inexorably because of human pollution."


Sanity check: 2008-2009 coolest years since 1998 - January 23, 2010

"While the press is hyperventilating over NASA GISS recent announcement of the “Hottest Decade Ever“, it pays to keep in mind what happened the last two years of the past decade."


Central England data belies warming - January 13, 2010

"...trend analysis work did not reveal any "man-made" signal confirming that human CO2 was causing "accelerating" temperatures."


Ice data puts Hockey Stick in perspective - December 9, 2009

"Well, whaddaya know — a hockey stick. In fact, the “blade” continues up in the 20th century at least another half a degree. But how long is the handle? How unprecedented is the current warming trend?"


Earth's capacity to absorb CO2 greater than expected - November 11, 2009

"This suggests that terrestrial ecosystems and the oceans have a much greater capacity to absorb CO2 than had been previously expected."


Measured warming is due to land use changes - November 11, 2009

"“Across the U.S. as a whole, approximately 50 percent of the warming that has occurred since 1950 is due to land use changes (usually in the form of clearing forest for crops or cities) rather than to the emission of greenhouse gases,” said Stone."


Hadley temperature data under question - September 30, 2009

"Keith Briffa and his fellow scientists have published a series of articles in scientific publications since 2000, all of them saying that warming is occurring faster than predicted, and all of them misusing statistical analysis and referring to data that they have resisted making available to others who would like to check their work."


Treemometers: A new scientific scandal - September 29, 2009

"A scientific scandal is casting a shadow over a number of recent peer-reviewed climate papers. At least eight papers purporting to reconstruct the historical temperature record times may need to be revisited, with significant implications for contemporary climate studies, the basis of the IPCC's assessments. A number of these involve senior climatologists at the British climate research centre CRU at the University East Anglia. In every case, peer review failed to pick up the errors."


Daily mean temperature in the Arctic - 1958-2008

Daily mean temperatures in the Arctic for 2009 plotted plotted against fifty years of data, showing that temepratures are almost exactly where they should be. Very impressive visual evidence.


Drop in world temperatures fuels climate debate - August 19, 2009

"Has Earth's fever broken? Official government measurements show that the world's temperature has cooled a bit since reaching its most recent peak in 1998. That's given global warming skeptics new ammunition to attack the prevailing theory of climate change."


Is the U.S. surface temperature record reliable? - 2009

Anthony Watts inspects and reports on the reliability of the 1,221 temperature recording stations in the U.S., and discovers that 89% of them do not meet National Weather Service standards.


Tundra releases carbon slower than thought - May 28, 2009

"We find that areas that thawed over the past 15 years had 40 per cent more annual losses of old carbon than minimally thawed areas, but had overall net ecosystem carbon uptake as increased plant growth offset these losses."


Greenhouse gas emissions decline in 2008 - May 21, 2009

"The Energy Department's Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Wednesday that carbon-dioxide output fell by 2.8 percent last year, the largest annual decline in energy-related carbon-dioxide emissions since 1990."


Data suggest warming causing CO2 increase - May 11, 2009

"Global warming theory assumes that the increasing carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere comes entirely from anthropogenic sources, and it is that CO2 increase which is causing global warming. But it is indisputable that the amount of extra CO2 showing up at the monitoring station at Mauna Loa, Hawaii each year... is strongly affected by sea surface temperature (SST) variations... which are in turn mostly a function of El Nino and La Nina conditions..."

Study Could Realign Climate Change Theory - March 15, 2009

"...a new study by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee could turn the climate change world upside down. Scientists at the university used a math application known as synchronized chaos and applied it to climate data taken over the past 100 years."


Rebuttal to Antarctic warming study - January 21, 2009

"In terms of the significance of their paper, it overstates what they have obtained from their analysis."


NASA studies show oceans are cooling - January 21, 2009

"Two separate studies through NASA confirm that since 2003, the world's oceans have been losing heat. In the peak of the recent warming trend, 1998 actually ranked 2nd to 1934 as the warmest year on record."


Hansen admits error, used Sept. data in Oct. - December 18, 2008

"A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming."


The Mystery of Global Warming's Missing Heat - March 19, 2008

"Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years."


Errors covertly corrected by the I.P.C.C. after publication And Uncorrected Errors by Al Gore - March, 2007

"Error 1 A 10-fold exaggeration in the effect of melting ice-sheets on sea-level rise"
"Error 2 A 20-fold exaggeration of the climatic effects of rising CO2 concentrations"


Global Warming climate models wrong - February 13, 2007

"A new report on climate over the world’s southernmost continent shows that temperatures during the late 20th century did not climb as had been predicted by many global climate models. [This] follows a similar finding from last summer by the same research group that showed no increase in precipitation over Antarctica in the last 50 years."


UK Telegraph article by Bob Carter - September 4, 2006

"Consider the simple fact, drawn from the official temperature records of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, that for the years 1998-2005 global average temperature did not increase (there was actually a slight decrease...)"


Ad Hoc Committee Report on the 'HOCKEY STICK' - July 14, 2006

"It is important to note the isolation of the paleoclimate community; even though they rely heavily on statistical methods they do not seem to be interacting with the statistical community." Mann "hockey stick" seen in proper perspective


TCS Daily article by Duane D. Freese - June 27, 2006

"While Mann is doing much now saying that his caveats about temperature were ignored by the media and the IPCC -- an excuse the NAS panel accepted -- he and his crew certainly did much to discredit those who raised questions about his work."


Oceans lose 20% of accumulated heat in two years - May 26, 2006

"This work has several implications. First, the updated time series of ocean heat content presented here... and the newly estimated confidence limits... support the significance of previously reported large interannual variability in globally integrated upper-ocean heat content. However, the physical causes for this type of variability are not yet well understood. Furthermore, this variability is not adequately simulated in the current generation of coupled climate models used to study the impact of anthropogenic influences on climate."


Abstract of Alpine Speleotherm Study by Mangini et al - June 17, 2005

"Temperature maxima during the Medieval Warm Period between 800 and 1300 AD are in average about 1.7 °C higher than the minima in the Little Ice Age and similar to present-day values." Related graph

CERN: Cosmic rays affect cload formation - September 7, 2011

"CERN's researchers reported last month that in the conditions they've observed so far, these rays appear to be enhancing the formation rates of pre-cloud seeds by up to a factor of 10. Current climate models do not consider any impact of cosmic rays on clouds."


Warming 'caused by sun's radiation' - December 8, 2009

"Professor Henrik Svensmark, a physicist at the Danish National Space Center in Copenhagen, said the recent warming period was caused by solar activity. He said the last time the world experienced such high temperatures, during the medieval warming period, the Sun and the Earth were in a similar cycle."


Earth approaching sunspot records - September 21, 2009

"...the sun's recent activity, or lack thereof, may be linked to the pleasant summer temperatures the midwest has enjoyed this year, said Charlie Perry, a research hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Lawrence."


Sun-caused warming - September 8, 2009

"A team of international scientists has finally figured out why sunspots have a dramatic effect on the weather... The Aug. 28 issue of the journal Science details how the scientific team led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), using a century's worth of data and three powerful computer models, figured out just how small changes in solar activity can trigger great changes in earth's climate."


Sun oddly quiet - May 4, 2009

"The sun is the least active it's been in decades and the dimmest in a hundred years. The lull is causing some scientists to recall the Little Ice Age, an unusual cold spell in Europe and North America, which lasted from about 1300 to 1850."


NASA finds link between Sun and climate - March 19, 2007

"The researchers found some clear links between the sun's activity and climate variations. The Nile water levels and aurora records had two somewhat regularly occurring variations in common - one with a period of about 88 years and the second with a period of about 200 years. The researchers said the findings have climate implications that extend far beyond the Nile River basin."


Global Warming on Mars, Pluto, Triton and Jupiter - March 4, 2007

"Global Warming on Mars, Pluto, Triton and Jupiter strongly points towards the Sun or Some other cosmic force being the cause of the recent global warming on Earth."


Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming - February 28, 2007

"Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human- induced—cause, according to one scientist's controversial theory."


Cosmic rays blamed for global warming - February 11, 2007

"It was long thought that clouds were caused by climate change, but now we see that climate change is driven by clouds. This has not been taken into account in the models used to work out the effect carbon dioxide has had."


Global warming on Mars! - January 26, 2007

"Mars has global warming, but without a greenhouse and without the participation of Martians. These parallel global warmings – observed simultaneously on Mars and on Earth – can only be a straightline consequence of the effect of the one same factor: a long-time change in solar irradiance."


Will the sun cool us? - January 12, 2007

"The science is anything but settled... except for one virtual certainty: The world is about to enter a cooling period."

Global warming on Saturn! - June 9, 2005

"Perhaps the answer to this might be the "Global Warming" that has become apparent in our Solar System in the last few years. A warming that is having an effect on all of the planets (including the Sun). Although this change in our Solar System was noticed at least 8 years ago, there has been very little said about it in the media."


Space.com article by Robert Roy Britt - March 20, 2003

The abiding faith of warm-ongers - December 22, 2010

"Karl Popper, the late, great philosopher of science, noted that for something to be called scientific, it must be, as he put it, "falsifiable." That is, for something to be scientifically true, you must be able to test it to see if it's false. That's what scientific experimentation and observation do. That's the essence of the scientific method. Unfortunately, the prophets of climate doom violate this idea. No matter what happens, it always confirms their basic premise that the world is getting hotter. The weather turns cold and wet? It's global warming, they say. Weather turns hot? Global warming. No change? Global warming. More hurricanes? Global warming. No hurricanes? You guessed it."


"Strangest intellectual aberration" - December 17, 2010

"The climate bugaboo, the strangest intellectual aberration of our age, rampages because in the me and now we have cast aside three once-universal forms of learning that gave us perspective: a Classical education, to remind us that in reason and logic there is a difference between true and false; a scientific education, to show us which is which; and a religious education, to teach us why the distinction matters."


Gore admits ethanol is bad policy - November 22, 2010

"Former U.S. vice-president Al Gore said support for corn-based ethanol in the United States was "not a good policy", weeks before tax credits are up for renewal... He explained his own support for the original programme on his presidential ambitions. "One of the reasons I made that mistake is that I paid particular attention to the farmers in my home state of Tennessee, and I had a certain fondness for the farmers in the state of Iowa because I was about to run for president.""


Chicago Climate Exchange (quietly) closes - November 6, 2010

"Global warming-inspired cap and trade has been one of the most stridently debated public policy controversies of the past 15 years. But it is dying a quiet death.

Climate alarmists on the run - May 31, 2010

"How the tables have turned in a short time. On May 20, Oxford Union, the prestigious 187-year-old English debating society, formally considered the question of whether it was more important to focus on growing the economy or solving global warming. Climate realism won the day, 135 to 110. It's no wonder, considering how the purportedly scientific arguments advanced in support of the scaremongering conclusions have fallen apart since the Climategate scandal..."

"I am a scientist, not a climatologist, so I don’t dabble in climatology. My speciality is the epidemiology of mosquito-borne diseases. As the film began, I knew Mr Gore would get to mosquitoes: they’re a favourite with climate-change activists. When he got to them, it was all I feared."


Past warming shows gaps in climate knowledge - July 15, 2009

"A dramatic warming of the planet 55 million years ago cannot be solely explained by a surge in carbon dioxide levels, a study shows, highlighting gaps in scientists' understanding of impacts from rapid climate change."


How do climate models work? - July 13, 2009

"Since fears of manmade global warming — and potential legislation or regulations of carbon dioxide emissions — are based mostly upon the output of climate models, it is important for people to understand the basics of what climate models are, how they work, and what their limitations are."


Evidence of global warming 1,000 years ago in Peru - July 1, 2009

"The last time global warming came to the Andes it produced the Inca Empire. A team of English and U.S. scientists has analyzed pollen, seeds and isotopes in core samples taken from the deep mud of a small lake not far from Machu Picchu and their report says that "the success of the Inca was underpinned by a period of warming that lasted more than four centuries.""


The man who cried doom - June 15, 2009

"It's been more than 20 years since James Hansen first warned America of impending doom. On a hot summer day in June 1988, Hansen, the head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, came to Washington to announce before a Senate committee that "the greenhouse effect has been detected and it is changing our climate now." The greenhouse effect would have looked obvious enough to anyone watching on television. The senators conducting the hearing, including Al Gore, had turned the committee room into an oven."


2008 was the year AGW was disproved - December 31, 2008

Facts about global warming from JunkScience.com - April 21, 2006

"...the big warming numbers come not from measurements but from computer models. These computer models and their output are passionately defended by the modeling clique and frequently derided by empiricists -- but the bottom line is that models make an enormous range of assumptions. Whether all the assumptions, tweaks and parameter adjustments really collectively add up to a realistic representation of the atmosphere is open to some conjecture..."

In particular models are theory, not evidence. • Says nothing about how much the temperature would rise for a given rise in CO2 levels."

Ice age predictions


Earth may be headed into mini Ice Age - June 14, 2011

"What may be the science story of the century is breaking this evening, as heavyweight US solar physicists announce that the Sun appears to be headed into a lengthy spell of low activity, which could mean that the Earth – far from facing a global warming problem – is actually headed into a mini Ice Age."


The mini ice age starts here - January 10, 2010

"The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world’s most eminent climate scientists."


Ice age predictions from 70's - December 3, 2009

"Many of you are too young to remember, but in 1975 our government pushed "the coming ice age." Random House dutifully printed "THE WEATHER CONSPIRACY … coming of the New Ice Age." This may be the only book ever written by 18 authors. All 18 lived just a short sled ride from Washington, D.C.

Earth on the brink of an Ice Age - January 11, 2009

"Many sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years."


Capitalism Magazine column by Thomas Sowell - July 23, 2001

"Back in the 1970s, the hysteria was about global cooling and the prospect of a new ice age. A National Academy of Sciences report back then led Science magazine to conclude in its March 1, 1975 issue that a long "ice age is a real possibility.""

Security Council makes ‘climate change’ a priority - July 21, 2011

"For the first time in four years, the U.N. Security Council debated Wednesday whether climate change should be considered a priority worthy of the council’s attention..."


UN moves the goalposts on climate refugees - April 21, 2011

"They predicted 50 million "refugees" by 2010, but not only have they failed to materialize, those areas that were supposed to be submerged by rising seas or made desert have increased in population." [More here.]


IPCC chair unaware of warming absence - December 2, 2010

"When asked about the fact that there has been no statistically significant global warming for the past 15 years, Pachauri became evasive. Even Phil Jones, a climatologist at the University of East Anglia and a prominent global warming alarmist, admitted this fact in the wake of Climategate."


IPCC official's stunning admission - November 18, 2010

"Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection, says the German economist and IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world's resources will be negotiated."


The book the IPCC plagiarized - September 3, 2010

"Some people think early editions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report were scrupulously science-based, but that the process became more politicized in recent years. A look at the first appearance of the health chapter – in the 1995 edition – challenges this view."


Rajendra Pachauri says sorry - March 27, 2010

"The outspoken chairman of the UN’s climate change body is to adopt a neutral advisory role and has agreed to stop making statements demanding new taxes and other radical policies on cutting emissions. In an interview with The Times, Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, apologised for his organisation’s handling of complaints about errors in its report."

"The emerging errors of the IPCC's 2007 report are not incidental but fundamental..."


IPCC hurricane statements questioned - February 15, 2010

"More trouble looms for the IPCC. The body may need to revise statements made in its Fourth Assessment Report on hurricanes and global warming. A statistical analysis of the raw data shows that the claims that global hurricane activity has increased cannot be supported."


The Real Climategate Scandal - February 11, 2010

"The global warming scandal keeps getting worse. Revelations over the last few weeks show that many important assertions in the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were based on misquotes and false claims from environmental groups, not on published academic research as originally claimed."


More errors in IPCC report - February 6, 2010

"The United Nations panel on climate change is facing fresh criticism today as The Sunday Telegraph reveals new factual errors and poor sources of evidence in its influential report to government leaders."


Netherlands adds to climate report controversy - February 5, 2010

"The Netherlands has asked the UN climate change panel to explain an inaccurate claim in a landmark 2007 report that more than half the country was below sea level, the Dutch government said Friday."


India forms new climate change body - February 4, 2010

"The Indian government has established its own body to monitor the effects of global warming because it “cannot rely” on the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the group headed by its own leading scientist Dr R.K Pachauri."


Pachauri doesn't heed IPCC advice - January 31, 2010

"Dr Pachauri showed no apparent inclination to cut global warming in his own back yard. On Friday, for the one-mile journey from home to his Delhi office, Dr Pachauri could have walked, or cycled, or used the eco-friendly electric car provided for him..."


IPCC knew about glacier lies before summit - January 30, 2010

"The chairman of the leading climate change watchdog was informed that claims about melting Himalayan glaciers were false before the Copenhagen summit, The Times has learnt."


IPCC based claims on magazine article - January 30, 2010

"The United Nations' expert panel on climate change based claims about ice disappearing from the world's mountain tops on a student's dissertation and an article in a mountaineering magazine."


UN climate chief admits mistake on glaciers - January 21, 2010

"The UN’s top climate change body has issued an unprecedented apology over its flawed prediction that Himalayan glaciers were likely to disappear by 2035."

IPCC chairman says emails make no difference - November 29, 2009

"Rajendra Pachauri defended the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in the wake of apparent suggestions in emails between climate scientists at the University of East Anglia that they had prevented work they did not agree with from being included in the panel's fourth assessment report, which was published in 2007."


UNEP Report—Deception Starts with the Cover - October 1, 2009

"The title says “Climate Change 2009: Science Compendium” but the cover illustration screams “Political Propaganda!” Here is the cover of the UNEP report:"


A closer look at the I.P.C.C. - May 25, 2009

"The common presumption is that the IPCC has assembled the best scientific knowledge. Let’s take a closer look at this organization to see whether it merits such uncritical deference." [Also here.]


English transcript of interview with Czech president - February 8, 2007

"Global warming is a myth and every serious person and scientist says so. It is not fair to refer to the U.N. panel. IPCC is not a scientific institution: it's a political body, a sort of non-government organization of green flavor. It's neither a forum of neutral scientists nor a balanced group of scientists. These people are politicized scientists who arrive there with a one-sided opinion and a one-sided assignment."


Politics first, science second - January 27, 2007

"All of this, however, is just the usual stage-managed showmanship that surrounds all climate science."


Climate Audit by Steve McIntyre - January 24, 2007

"As noted in a prior post, only IPCC insiders have access to the WG1 Report between the Feb 2, 2007 release of the Summary for Policy-Makers and the scheduled publication of the WG1 Report in May 2007. To my knowledge, such a procedure is unprecedented in public commission reporting."

John Kerry and Global Warming consensus - February 22, 2014

"While all this stuff is happening, world events so scary the nightly news is like a horror show, John Kerry, our bumbling buffoonish Secretary of State, visited Indonesia this week and gave a speech about Global Warming. He announced that the most dangerous threat to the world is climate change."


Spring global warming prayer: No más, Lord, no más - March 20, 2013

Leftwing science – Part 1 - May 19, 2011

"In 1997, just before the Kyoto Climate Change Summit, Science Magazine journalist Gary Taubes explained that all the wild predictions of disease and public health calamities from global warming, which formed a crescendo of hysteria in the months leading up to Kyoto, were exaggerations concocted for our own good."


The five worst human beings in America - December 28, 2010

"Since the 1980’s James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City, has been engaged in a kind of guerilla warfare against our knowledge base: fabricating, exaggerating, propagandizing, and stifling debate in order to promote a scientific theory which aids his personal career and advances his virulently leftwing political beliefs."

Global warming thought experiment - February 22, 2010

"As the theory of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) disintegrates under a barrage of scientific fraud, bureaucratic stupidity, political ham-handedness, and greed, it might be the perfect time to step back and try for fresh perspective... with a thought experiment."


Copenhagen redux - December 19, 2009

"As the U.N.’s climate conference stumbles to its ignoble end with world leaders scrambling to put a happy face on failure and the world’s climate good-doobies saying goodbye to their favorite hookers and boarding their private jets, I have three lingering thoughts."

Lawsuits


Mann hires attorneys to fight FOIA - September 6, 2011

"Dr. Michael Mann, lead author of the discredited “hockey stick” graph that was once hailed by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as the “smoking gun” of the catastrophic man-made global warming theory, has asked to intervene in American Tradition Institute’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that seeks certain records produced by Mann and others while he was at the University of Virginia, for the purpose of keeping them hidden from the taxpayer."


Youths sue state of Colorado over GW - May 10, 2011

"An 11-year-old boy whose Gold Hill neighborhood burned in the Fourmile Fire has joined with a friend afraid of losing favorite hiking trails and an 18-year-old student with a growing asthmatic condition in a lawsuit against the state for failing to protect the environment."




Peer-reviewed papers


Ethanol production killed 192,000 people in 2010 - September 6, 2011

"A new peer-reviewed study in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons by Dr. Indur Goklany calculates that global ethanol production resulted in 192,000 excess deaths in developing countries in 2010. By diverting ever-greater quantities of food into the fuel supply, ethanol—a motor fuel distilled from corn, wheat, soy and palm oils—is making food more expensive, which starves poor people." [Journal of American Physicians and Surgeoans article here.]


CERN: Cosmic rays spur cloud formation - August 25, 2011

"CERN's 8,000 scientists may not be able to find the hypothetical Higgs boson, but they have made an important contribution to climate physics, prompting climate models to be revised. The first results from the lab's CLOUD ("Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets") experiment published in Nature today confirm that cosmic rays spur the formation of clouds through ion-induced nucleation."


NASA study blows hole in GW alarmism - July 27, 2011

"NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed."


Temperatures not affecting sea level - March 28, 2011

"The paper is currently in press at the Journal of Coastal Research and is provided with open access to the full publication. The results are stunning for their contradiction to AGW theories which suggest global warming would accelerate sea level rise during the last century."


Signs of global cooling - January 22, 2011

"For about 2 decades we have been told to urgently act against unprecedented global warming or else there will be fiery gloom and doom for the world. Yet, the opposite seems to be happening. The entire planet has stopped warming since 1998 and, more significantly, has started to cool since 2003."


Refutation of Steig Antarctic temperature study - November 26, 2010

"A detailed analysis is presented of a recently published Antarctic temperature reconstruction that combines satellite and ground information using a regularized expectation-maximization algorithm. Though the general reconstruction concept has merit, it is susceptible to spurious results for both temperature trends and patterns. The deficiencies include: (a) improper calibration of satellite data; (b) improper determination of spatial structure during infilling; and (c) suboptimal determination of regularization parameters, particularly with respect to satellite principal component retention."


Warming Power of CO2 and H2O - November 2010

"The main conclusion one arrives at the analysis is that CO2 has not a causal relation with global warming and it is not powerful enough to cause the historical changes in temperature that were observed. The main argument is the absence of immediate correlation between CO2 changes preceding temperature either for global or local changes. The greenhouse effect of the CO2 is very small compared to the water vapor because the absorbing effect is already realized with its historical values. So, the reduction of the outcoming long wave radiation window is not a consequence of current enrichment or even of a possible double ratio of CO2."


New paper rebuts Mann Hockey Stick - August 30, 2010

"This paper is a direct and serious rebuttal to the proxy reconstructions of Mann. It seems watertight on the surface, because instead of trying to attack the proxy data quality issues, they assumed the proxy data was accurate for their purpose, then created a bayesian backcast method. Then, using the proxy data, they demonstrate it fails to reproduce the sharp 20th century uptick."


Statitistical analysis of temperature proxies - August 2010

"Predicting historic temperatures based on tree rings, ice cores, and other natural proxies is a difficult endeavor. The relationship between proxies and temperature is weak and the number of proxies is far larger than the number of target data points. Furthermore, the data contain complex spatial and temporal dependence structures which are not easily captured with simple models. In this paper, we assess the reliability of such reconstructions and their statistical significance against various null models. We find that the proxies do not predict temperature significantly better than random series generated independently of temperature."


New paper refutes AGW-caused blizzards - July 26, 2010

"Peer reviewed paper refutes claims of blizzards of last winter being driven by “global warming”"


Greenland still not as warm as during MWP - April 21, 2010

"In the words of the seven scientists, "temperatures during the warmest intervals of the Medieval Warm Period," which they defined as occurring "some 900 to 1300 years ago, "were as warm as or slightly warmer than present day Greenland temperatures [bold added].""


Another study challenges climate change ‘orthodoxy’ - July 24, 2009

"Virtually all changes in global atmospheric temperatures in the late 20th century were the result of nature rather than human activity, according to a new peer-reviewed study, one of whose authors predicted Friday was “sure to cause a stir.”"


Determination of climate feedbacks from ERBE data - July 14, 2009

"Abstract: Climate feedbacks are estimated from fluctuations in the outgoing radiation budget from the latest version of Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) nonscanner data. It appears, for the entire tropics, the observed outgoing radiation fluxes increase with the increase in sea surface temperatures (SSTs). The observed behavior of radiation fluxes implies negative feedback processes associated with relatively low climate sensitivity. This is the opposite of the behavior of 11 atmospheric models forced by the same SSTs. Therefore, the models display much higher climate sensitivity than is inferred from ERBE..."


On the credibility of climate predictions - June 10, 2008

"Abstract: Geographically distributed predictions of future climate, obtained through climate models, are widely used in hydrology and many other disciplines, typically without assessing their reliability. Here we compare the output of various models to temperature and precipitation observations from eight stations with long (over 100 years) records from around the globe. The results show that models perform poorly, even at a climatic (30-year) scale. Thus local model projections cannot be credible, whereas a common argument that models can perform better at larger spatial scales is unsupported."


Climate Change Reexamined - 2007

"Abstract: Claimed human-caused warming of the Earth to dangerous and unprecedented levels by human-related emissions of carbon dioxide is contradicted mainly by a non-correlation of carbon dioxide levels with warming. Details are given of misleading proxy temperature reconstructions, as well as of misleading proxy atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations. Evidence is presented to show that trepidation about runaway land surface temperatures should apply only to giant urban heat islands, not to rural areas or oceans..."


Contaminated climate data - December 22, 2007

"...our analysis does suggest that nonclimatic effects are present in the gridded temperature data used by the IPCC and that they likely add up to a net warming bias at the global level that may explain as much as half the observed land-based warming trend."


Ferenc M. Miskolczi refutes runaway greenhouse theory - October 29, 2006

"In general, the thermal structure of the atmosphere assures that the absorbed surface upward radiation is equal to the downward atmospheric radiation. It seems that the Earth's atmosphere maintains the balance between the absorbed short wave and emitted long wave radiation by keeping the total flux optical depth close to the theoretical equilibrium values."


On natural climate cycles by Lin Zhen-Shan and Sun Xian - July 31, 2006

"...the CO2 greenhouse effect will be deficient in counterchecking the natural cooling of global climate in the [next] 20 years." You can purchase the actual paper here.




Polar regions & glaciers


225-year reconstruction of Greenland ice - May 2, 2011

"Alarmist climate change scenarios call for Greenland to shed its ice cover extremely rapidly and send the sea level a meter or more higher by the end of this century. But a more rational look at the data makes such claims hard to justify..."


Now they say Arctic ice gone by 2016 - April 7, 2011

"Scientists who predicted a few years ago that Arctic summers could be ice-free by 2013 now say summer sea ice will probably be gone in this decade. The original prediction, made in 2007, gained Wieslaw Maslowski's team a deal of criticism from some of their peers. Now they are working with a new computer model - compiled partly in response to those criticisms - that produces a "best guess" date of 2016."

Some Himalayan glaciers advancing, not melting - January 27, 2011

"The new study by scientists at the Universities of California and Potsdam has found that half of the glaciers in the Karakoram range, in the northwestern Himlaya, are in fact advancing and that global warming is not the deciding factor in whether a glacier survives or melts."


Study refutes claims of warming Antarctic - December 2, 2010

"Using a more rational (though not magical) policy on retained PCs, a very different picture emerged as illustrated below. The “traditional” picture of very strong warming on the Antarctic peninsula re-emerged, together with large areas of cooling on the continent. Instead of the West Antarctic being a location of anomalous warming, as Steig et al had purported to show, parts of it were actually cooling."


New study slashes estimate of icecap loss - September 7, 2010

"Estimates of the rate of ice loss from Greenland and West Antarctica, one of the most worrying questions in the global warming debate, should be halved, according to Dutch and US scientists."


Early cold hits Arctic - August 15, 2010

"Summer has come to a premature and frosty end at Santa’s workshop. It has been the coldest summer on record north of 80N, and temperatures have dropped below freezing ahead of the average date."


Scientist says Arctic getting colder - April 23, 2010

"A Russian scientist says the Arctic may be getting colder, not warmer, which would hamper the international race to discover new mineral fields."


Arctic melting season latest start on record - April 6, 2010

"The extent of sea ice over the Arctic Ocean grew until the last day of March, the latest the annual melting season has begun in 31 years of satellite records..."


Arctic ice back to normal - March 31, 2010

"Barring an about face by nature or adjustments, it appears that for the first time since 2001, Arctic Sea ice will hit the “normal” line as defined by the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) for this time of year."


Arctic Ocean getting warm... in 1922 - March 16, 2010

"A Washington, D.C. resident John Lockwood was conducting research at the Library of Congress and came across an intriguing headline in the Nov. 2, 1922 edition of The Washington Post: Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt."


12 more glaciers that aren't melting - January 25, 2010

"Here are a dozen glaciers (or groups of glaciers) around the world that are growing almost as quickly as global warming skepticism."


World misled over Himalayan glacier meltdown - January 17, 2010

"A warning that climate change will melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 is likely to be retracted after a series of scientific blunders by the United Nations body that issued it."


Arctic too warm for sea ice 3 million years ago - December 29, 2009

"Scientists documented evidence that the Arctic Ocean and Nordic Seas were too warm to support summer sea ice during the mid-Pliocene warm period (3.3 to 3 million years ago). This period is characterized by warm temperatures similar to those projected for the end of this century, and is used as an analog to understand future conditions."


Himalayan glacier prediction 'a mistake' - December 5, 2009

"The UN panel on climate change warning that Himalayan glaciers could melt to a fifth of current levels by 2035 is wildly inaccurate, an academic says."


Greenpeace chief admits lying about Arctic ice - August 19, 2009

"The outgoing leader of Greenpeace has admitted his organization’s recent claim that the Arctic Ice will disappear by 2030 was “a mistake.” Greenpeace made the claim in a July 15 press release entitled “Urgent Action Needed As Arctic Ice Melts,” which said there will be an ice-free Arctic by 2030 because of global warming."


Argentine glacier advancing - June 15, 2009

"Nourished by Andean snowmelt, the glacier constantly grows even as it spawns icebergs the size of apartment buildings into a frigid lake, maintaining a nearly perfect equilibrium since measurements began more than a century ago."


Tundra releases carbon slower than thought - May 28, 2009

"We find that areas that thawed over the past 15 years had 40 per cent more annual losses of old carbon than minimally thawed areas, but had overall net ecosystem carbon uptake as increased plant growth offset these losses."


North Pole ice sheet thicker than expected - April 28, 2009

"The result is surprising. The sea-ice in the surveyed areas is apparently thicker than scientists had suspected."


Robot sub learns ice being melted by currents - March 17, 2009

""My hypothesis is that more water seems to be coming toward the glacier rather than the temperature of the water is rising," said Adrian Jenkins, the lead British scientist at the British Antarctic Survey."


Greenland ice yields hope on climate - July 6, 2007

"An international team of scientists, drilling deep into the ice layers of Greenland, has found DNA from ancient spiders and trees, evidence that suggests the frozen shield covering the immense island survived the earth's last period of global warming."


Study says Greenland glacier melting is variable - February 13, 2007

"Our main point is that the behavior of these glaciers can change a lot from year to year, so we can't assume to know the future behavior from short records of recent changes."


Indian experts challenge IPCC, say glaciers not melting - February 11, 2007

"Raina told the Hindustan Times that out of 9,575 glaciers in India, till date, research has been conducted only on about 50. Nearly 200 years data has shown that nothing abnormal has occurred in any of these glaciers."


NewsBusters exposes polar bear photo fraud - February 4, 2007

Exposes truth about photograph purportedly showing polar bears trapped on ice melted by global warming. Turns out it's an old picture taken in mid-summer and the ice floe was formed by waves, not Global Warming.


Polar bear numbers up fivefold since 1970's - January 22, 2007

"That's right, the problem confronting polar bears may be overpopulation, not extinction!"

"Greenland's icecap has thickened slightly in recent years despite concerns that it is thawing out due to global warming, says an international team of scientists."


Collection of studies which show that Greenland is cooling - September 15, 2005

"In conclusion, Greenland, like most of the rest of the world, is subject to a likely solar-induced millennial-scale oscillation of climate that produced a Medieval Warm Period there about a thousand years ago that was approximately 1°C warmer than what it is today; and in contrast to climate-alarmist claims, it has not experienced unprecedented warming over the past few decades. Rather, it has experienced cooling in most places."




Global warming scandals


42% of weather stations don't meet standards - September 30, 2011

"Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today welcomed a report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) entitled “NOAA Can Improve Their Management of the U.S. Historical Climatology Network (USHCN).” This report quantifies lingering questions concerning proper siting of weather stations, finding about 42% of the active USHCN stations in 2010 did not meet one or more of NOAA’s siting standards."


Arctic scientist under investigation - July 28, 2011

"Just five years ago, Charles Monnett was one of the scientists whose observation that several polar bears had drowned in the Arctic Ocean helped galvanize the global warming movement. Now, the wildlife biologist is on administrative leave and facing accusations of scientific misconduct." [More here.]


Research center 'adjusted' sea-level data - June 17, 2011

"Is climate change raising sea levels, as Al Gore has argued -- or are climate scientists doctoring the data? The University of Colorado’s Sea Level Research Group decided in May to add 0.3 millimeters -- or about the thickness of a fingernail -- every year to its actual measurements of sea levels, sparking criticism from experts who called it an attempt to exaggerate the effects of global warming."


What did Penn State know? - March 10, 2011

"In an interview yesterday, Mann told Eli Kintisch of Science... that it has been “known for a year and half” that he forwarded Jones’ delete request to Wahl. If Mann’s claim is true (and I do not believe it to be true), then this raises serious questions about statements in the Penn State Inquiry Report..."


2nd failure in a row of NASA climate satellite - March 8, 2011

"But there’s something else funny going on here, and not in the holding-your-sides-with-laughter sense, that could create fodder for the conspiracy minded. Both OCO and Glory were specifically designed to help resolve the controversial issue of the degree to which earth’s climate is changing and if so, the degree to which human actions are the cause."


Penn State whitewashed ClimateGate - March 8, 2011

"A federal government inspector general has revealed prima facie proof that the so-called independent inquiries widely if implausibly described as clearing the ClimateGate principals of wrongdoing were, in fact, whitewashes. This has been confirmed to Senate offices."


SEC charges seven in Global Warming scam - February 18, 2011

"The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged a group of seven individuals who perpetrated a fraudulent pump-and-dump scheme in the stock of a sham company that purported to provide products and services to fight global warming."


GW crowd still withholding data - January 6, 2011

"Every inquiry into paleoclimate controversies, no matter how much whitewash was applied, concluded that climate scientists should archive data. If Neukom, Jones and their coauthors publish a multiproxy article, that means the multiproxy data, not just the output. If the contributing authors are not willing to archive their data, then it shouldn’t be used in a study in a climate journal. End of story."

ClimateGate: One year later - November 17, 2010

"Despite the revelations exposed in the now public climate huckster’s handbook, one year later the specter of governance and wealth redistribution both national and international based largely, if not solely, on pseudo-scientific hocus-pocus persists."


ClimateGate: Climate change lies exposed - August 31, 2010

"A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming. It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof." [More here.]


SatelliteGate - August 16, 2010

"US Government admits global warming satellite sensors “degraded” - temperatures may be out by 10-15 degrees. Now five satellites in controversy. Top scientists speak out. In an escalating row dubbed ‘Satellitegate’ further evidence proves NOAA knew of these faults for years."


ClimateGate: Inquiry glosses over facts - July 20, 2010

"When the Climategate e-mails were released last year, the evidence of misconduct by the scientists involved was so strong that the climate establishment was forced to commission a series of tribunals. Yet the conclusions of those inquiries are as specious as the science they were supposed to investigate. By asking the wrong questions -- or not asking them at all -- they have failed to advance the climate debate one iota."


ClimateGate: The Penn State whitewash - July 14, 2010

"The Penn State inquiry exonerating Michael Mann -- the paleoclimatologist who came up with "the hockey stick" -- would be difficult to parody. Three of four allegations are dismissed out of hand at the outset: the inquiry announces that, for "lack of credible evidence", it will not even investigate them."


ClimateGate: reinstating Phil Jones good news - July 8, 2010

"This is the third Climategate whitewash job and it would be tempting to see it as just as futile as its predecessors. That, however, would be to underrate its value to the sceptic cause, which is considerable."


JudithGate - June 24, 2010

"Klimaskeptik.cz, a Czech climate skeptic blog, has posted today an interesting article "Judithgate: The IPCC was only one Solar Physicist" (google rough translation). Her name is Judith Lean (photo at right). On the basis of this "consensus of one" solar physicist, the IPCC proclaimed solar influences upon the climate to be minimal."


Virginia AG sues Michael Mann - April 30, 2010

"This blog’s hero of the week is Ken Cuccinelli. He’s the new Attorney General of Virginia and he’s about to launch quite possibly the most delicious and worthwhile law suit in the entire history of litigation: one that could result in Michael Mann – arch-climate-fear-promoter, comedy You Tube Star, creator of the infamous, twice-discredited Hockey Stick – being fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for alleged misuse of state grant funding."

Superstorm for global warming research - April 1, 2010

"Plagued by reports of sloppy work, falsifications and exaggerations, climate research is facing a crisis of confidence. How reliable are the predictions about global warming and its consequences? And would it really be the end of the world if temperatures rose by more than the much-quoted limit of two degrees Celsius?"


Now it's CowGate - March 25, 2010

"It is becoming difficult to keep pace with the speed at which the global warming scam is now unravelling. The latest reversal of scientific “consensus” is on livestock and the meat trade as a major cause of global warming – one-fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions, according to eco-vegetarian cranks. Now a scientific report delivered to the American Chemical Society says it is nonsense. The Washington Times has called it “Cowgate”."


NASA heads knew NASA data was poor - March 10, 2010

"Email messages obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute via a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that the climate dataset of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) was considered — by the top climate scientists within NASA itself — to be inferior to the data maintained by the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU)."

Cimategate and Penn State - January 12, 2010

"While PSU is to be commended for recognizing that Climategate is a serious matter and that an investigation into Michael Mann's conduct is warranted, the investigation constitutes a conflict of interest for the university. Mann's climate work brings enough visibility, prestige, and revenue to PSU to legitimately call into question the university's ability to do a thorough and unbiased investigation."

Michael Mann's unhappy new year - January 3, 2010

"...I am so glad to report that Michael Mann – creator of the incredible Hockey Stick curve and one of the scientists most heavily implicated in the Climategate scandal – is about to get a very nasty shock. When he turns up to work on Monday, he’ll find that all 27 of his colleagues at the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University have received a rather tempting email inviting them to blow the whistle on anyone they know who may have been fraudulently misusing federal grant funds for climate research."


Al Gore lies about Climategate - December 18, 2009

"Al Gore’s claim last week that the Climategate emails were insignificant relied on two main defences. Both are so flagrantly wrong that it’s not enough to say Gore is simply mistaken. No, Al Gore is a liar."

September 22, 2012 - Thank you again for all you do for the nation during these most critical of times. The following YouTube interview regarding Agenda 21 and Global Governance is for posting on your website and blogging if you can use it. It is vital that Americans understand fully that this is not just another election. Thank you. LINK for distribution, sharing, blogging, tweeting, etc.: AGENDA 21: OBAMA & THE U.N.. - Sharon Sebastian, California

September 20, 2012 - Hello J.P. and greetings from Delaware and Ms. Ward's classroom! I hope it's alright to be contacting you like this! I'm currently working with my class on revamping my classroom website by adding some new sections/information. One of the students, David, came across your page while searching for environment/conservation related resource pages and found some great information there that we will most likely be using on my site. As part of the project, the kids make sure to share to find and share a resource with the folks that we have borrowed information from for "using their stuff," as one student put it haha. This is something that David found and thought would go well on your site: "Heating The Earth: A Guide to Global Warming." His suggestion is for you to add this resource to your links page for others to benefit from. If you like it, would you mind including it? I'd like to show him if you do add it, it's a great motivator for the kids when they get positive feedback and their links are posted. Thanks so much for being a part of this, I really appreciate it. Give me a shout back if you are able to add it :) Hope to hear from you soon and thank you in advance! - Ms. Deborah Ward (and David), Netherlands
J.P. replies: I can't help wondering how a Delaware school teacher is emailing me from an IP located in the Netherlands. As for your link, it's nothing more than rehashed Global Warmist bullshit masquerading as an objective summary. If you really are teaching children with that garbage, I feel bad for the kids.

June 4, 2012 - Good morning! My name is Sarah and I am an after-school teacher out in Colorado. My students have been using your webpage on Global Warming, and brought to my attention how helpful it has been for them for their Global Warming project! As a thank you, one of my students, Danielle, suggested another resource: "Global Warming and Climate Change." Could you add this to your page? I think it would be a great addition! I researched the article and it is very resourceful which is why I agreed to write to you when she asked me the other day. We would like to thank you again for the wonderful resources and hope that you add our newly discovered resource to your page! If you put it up, let me know, as I would love to show her the suggestion up... it would be a great motivator for her peers to see too! Have a wonderful day! - Sarah C., Colorado
J.P. replies: Your site is full of crap. Polar ice caps are not melting, species are not becoming extinct, sea levels are not rising, fresh water is not disappearing, and the frequency of hurricanes is not increasing. If all that was true, though, it's good to know that you have an umbrella for sale that solves everything.
