I wrote the following article as a regular monthly column in the Canadian magazine called The Landowner. It is designed to provide general understanding of basic natural events; help people know how the world works; make better decisions in living and working on the land; and reduce potential for exploitation by environmentalists. The magazine is […]

Importance of Urban Trees.

by Dr. Tim Ball on September 23, 2012

Many are concerned about forests, but urban trees are relatively more important. Urban environmentalists constantly complain about forestry, but extent of forests has increased as much as 30 percent on most continents. We are close to a renewable cycle. Replanting forests (silviculture) that has been going on for upward of 60 years are now reaching […]

George Hadley (1685 – 1768), an Age of Enlightenment citizen, lawyer and amateur meteorologist made a major contribution to climatology through an interest in the Trade Winds. He worked inductively using ships weather logs to produce a theory about atmospheric circulation. Named after him, the Hadley cell is the only portion of the atmospheric circulation […]

Claims of human produced CO2 causing climate change are based on output of computer models of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Programmed to produce predetermined results their output is used for global and national policies on energy even though projections have been consistently wrong. Failures caused a switch from predictions to scenarios, but […]

Knowledge about the atmosphere and lack of data are serious limitations on understanding climate change and building climate models. The atmosphere is three-dimensional so to build a computer model that even approximates reality requires far more data than exists and much greater understanding of an extremely turbulent and complex system. The history of understanding the […]

Almost every aspect of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) work is manipulated, selected, and controlled, to prove human CO2 is causing global warming. The objective was to prove the hypothesis, not to perform objective science. The goal was established by the Club of Rome whose member, Maurice Strong transmitted and translated it into […]

(With apologies to the editorial of the September 21, 1897. New York Sun) West Virginia, your pretend friends at EPA are wrong. They have been affected by the deception of the environmental age. They do not believe except what they want to see. They think that nothing can be which does not fit their little […]

Claims that current weather patterns are extreme, unusual and due to global warming demonstrate ignorance of climate mechanisms. Global warming reduces the risk of severe weather. Ill-informed or complicit media repeat the falsehood until it becomes fact. Recent weather events are natural and easily explained but that is rarely reported. Here are recent examples of […]

April 14th is the anniversary of Titanic’s collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic. One can’t absolve the sailors from lack of vigilance because the accident happened, but it’s important to know their situation and expectations.

Some know the inadequacies of the world temperature data. Few know the degree of manipulation and corruption of the data done to prove the 20th Century temperature increase was unnatural. It completely undermines the scientific claims of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
