Popeye perceptively said, “I don’t know houz youz duz it, but youz duz it.” Now, over 5000 more leaked emails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU), labeled Climategate 2, provide clarity. They add flesh to the skeleton of corrupted climate science identified in 1000 leaked emails of Climategate 1. They show why and how it […]

I noticed a few phrases repeated in attacks against anyone challenging ‘official’ science created at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). One phrase said the person had no peer-reviewed work – it was falsely used against me. Another, also used against me, claimed the person was not a […]

Winston Churchill said, “It has been said that Democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” Free Speech is central to the maintenance of Democracy, as the US Founding Fathers recognized by enshrining it as the First Amendment, which says in part, “Congress […]

At the recent Heartland Institute on Climate Conference in Washington, I was privileged to make a presentation as part of a panel. It was interesting, because behind the open discussion about global warming and climate change, there was a growing discussion about the actual role of CO2 as a greenhouse gas. I implied this with […]

The degree to which those in official climate science are incapable is illustrated by the reaction. The answer is in the reaction the whitewash has triggered; an orchestrated attack on the skeptics, those who dare to perform science by proving the hypothesis wrong, to ask questions or demand debate. Why? The obvious answer is because the public was increasingly skeptical as evidence accumulated that the hypothesis was wrong.

All climate policy is designed to reduce atmospheric CO2, but that is not what the plants would vote for. Plant producers have added CO2 to enclosed growing environments for 100 years to enhance growth. Thank goodness there are many natural sources of CO2 and significant reductions are not possible – otherwise humans would be eliminated, as extremists want. In another unintended consequence, so would all other species.

The certainty with which the IPCC and AGW proponents make their claims leads to a demand for action. They have denied doubt: the science is settled, the debate is over so we must act. In fact, there is considerable doubt, so it is far wiser to do nothing.
