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 […]

“It occurred to me…” Who created the God particle? Computer models of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are the only place where CO2 increase causes temperature increase. All records of any duration or time period, temperature increases first. Even if you accept the IPCC claim the amount is within the error of any […]

“It occurred to me ….. ” Global warming is another undelivered government promise. Polar Bears were chosen by Al Gore as the poster animal for global warming. They added emotion and drama to his story about melting arctic ice. This was necessary because most people either had no mental image of the Arctic Ocean or […]

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 […]

The headline says, adobe creative suite cs6 “One million New Plankton Species Found.” Leader Dr Bowler said, “It’s the first time that anyone’s done this expedition looking specifically for plankton life, and that’s why we found so many,” How can this be? Don’t we know the number of species on the planet? We must know […]

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 […]

Many organizations “fact-check” economic claims of politicans at US election Conventions, but climate facts need scrutiny. In his Democratic convention speech President Obama said; “And yes, my plan will continue to reduce the carbon pollution that is heating our planet-because climate change is not a hoax. More droughts and floods and wildfires are not a […]

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 […]

Usually, whatever aboriginal or indigenous people say about the environment is sacrosanct to environmentalists and government. However, when they disagree their knowledge is belittled and ignored. It is happening to the Inuit about polar bears. Environmentalists and government claim polar bears are doomed because of global warming. “Most of the world’s polar bears are likely […]
