“It Occurred To Me…”Rules designed to facilitate operations bring them to a halt when people work to rule. Hijacking of environmentalism for a political agenda centered on climate, but specifically increasing temperatures. This was predetermined by the goal of demonizing CO2, the byproduct of industrial nations, that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and […]

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 […]
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 […]
I’ve told this story before but it requires repeating because of awareness of climate science corruption. Even skeptics realize claims of incompetence are inadequate. Official Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) climate science was completely orchestrated for a premeditated result. T.R.Wigley’s 1983 paper “The pre-industrial carbon dioxide level” was pivotal in the evolution of climate […]
Many claim sea level is rising because of global warming and point to changes along the Gulf of Mexico coast. Sea level has risen since the end of the last Ice Age (Figure 1), but it has slowed dramatically in the last few hundred years. However, shoreline change is not just a function of water […]
For years I've asked, "What's wrong with having global warming?" It's a question that flummoxes people swamped by nothing but disaster predictions from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and mainstream media television that have hourly "Severe Weather" or "Extreme Weather" reports. After some thought, most people say their concern is sea level rise. What they don't know is that, like CO2 induced warming, it is another falsely presented threat.
How much do calculations of global temperatures represent the real temperature of the Earth? Every day, new stories appear about temperature records with errors or deliberate omissions.
