Figure 1 Correlation between sunspot numbers and global temperature was known for decades, but with no proven mechanism it was correctly set aside. That changed when Henrik Svensmark proposed his Cosmic Ray hypothesis. Figures 1 and 2 show the mechanism in two different ways. Figure 2 is from “The Chilling Stars” by Svensmark and Calder, […]

I don‘t normally reprint material by other people, however, I know the following information is not available to the general public. It is reproduced with permission of author Norm Kalmanovitch. 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 […]

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) perpetuates the deception that they examine all causes of climate change. They only examine human causes, which you can’t identify if you don’t know or understand natural causes.

“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 […]

The Montreal Protocol was based on the false science that a variation in atmospheric ozone was due to human-produced CFCs. We were told destruction of ozone would continue for 100 years. That and the hypothesis were wrong. Now children suffer from the understandable public reaction to the fears the false science created. Some of the damage of the false CO2 science is already evident.

There are frequent stories of impending doom. If it isn’t new it’s a recycled one, which works because few understood the original story was false. This allows exploiters to take normal events and present them as abnormal. A recent Canadian story identifies a hole in the Arctic ozone. How can this be? Wasn’t the problem […]

 “The great tragedy of Science: the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.” Thomas Huxley Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is the hypothesis being slain by an ugly fact. AGW has dominated world attention for thirty years because proponents used it to push a political agenda. Normally, scientists perform their natural role as skeptics, […]

Climate science was hijacked for a political agenda that is now achieved. Amazingly, it was done in full view. It was achieved because most people – including skeptics and deniers – still don’t understand even the most basic elements of the science. All the efforts of the so-called skeptics or deniers had little effect. It […]

Political whitewash of the corrupted climate science of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) illustrates the completely political nature of the issue. Indeed, the Chairman of the British Parliament investigating Phil Jones and the CRU specifically said they would not look at the science. If they had, they would see the extensive and outrageous scientific errors, manipulations of data, and omissions of large areas.

Global warming due to humans is based on the hypothesis that our addition of CO2 has changed the balance of energy entering and leaving the Earth’s atmosphere. There are a multitude of factors that can change this balance, many ignored or underplayed by climate science. They get away with this because the public is unaware.
