“It occurred to me…”When the call centre message says”All our assistants are busy, they really mean we don’t have enough staff.” The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) set climate research back thirty years, mostly by focusing world attention on CO2 and higher temperature. It was a classic misdirection that required planning. The IPCC was […]

“It occurred to me….” Household mathematics, three bags of groceries, four bags of garbage. Lack of temperature data is a problem, but measures of water and precipitation are much worse. Temperature changes, especially cooling, are important to a degree over the long term. Precipitation changes are much more important for short, medium and long periods. […]

“It occurred to me….” If you are on a cell phone please use the speaker so I can hear both sides of the conversation. Torture numbers, and they will confess to anything. Greg Easterbrook. Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable. Anonymous. Climatology is the study of average weather over time or in […]

Global temperature is not doing what the “official” Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicted. Proponents of the claim humans are the cause of warming and the cooperative media react by trying to deflect, divert and perpetuate fear. They exploit people’s lack of knowledge and understanding. A January 2013 ABC News headline said, “2012 Was […]

“It occurred to me…” that eventually all those people texting will eventually end up writing Shakespeare’s plays. Analogies are a valuable teaching device converting everything from ideas to objects into supposedly more recognizable forms. They includes biblical parables, Aesop’s Fables, hardware models, toys, computer models and even mathematical formulae. However, something is always lost in […]

He is a retired geophysicist who has worked on the climate issue through his involvement with the Friends of Science group over the last few […]

“It occurred to me ….” They say, incorrectly, one person cannot change the world. Unfortunately they usually change it for the worse.   Al Gore did more to bring melting Arctic ice to global attention and concern than anyone. Polar bears became victims and poster animals for destructive human production of CO2. He’s done more […]

In a comment on the WUWT article about the abject failure of the United Kingdom Weather Office (UKMO) weather forecasts, Doug Huffman wrote, “Each forecast must be accompanied by the appropriate retro-cast record of previous casts” (January 6, 2013 at 7:06 am). I pointed out years ago that Environment Canada (EC) publishes such information. In […]

I was proud to be a part of the following article published in The Washington Examiner and on Anthony Watts’ web page. oem downloadable software The Supreme Court, in Mass v. EPA, stated that the EPA must treat CO2 and other Greenhouse Gases (GHGs), as “pollutants” and then carryout an analysis to determine whether the […]

Challengers to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science of global warming and later climate change were rewarded with illogical, personal attacks, not answers. Most, especially the media, never investigated questions challengers asked or considered contradicting facts they presented. Challengers were always questioned about qualifications, funding or political affiliations. Questions never asked of members […]
