“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. […]

A spokesperson, identified as a “warning preparedness meteorologist” from Environment Canada threatened us with climate doom, but only managed to show total ignorance of climate science. He said, “warming trends across the country will mean more severe blasts of rain, wind, snow and heat from Mother Nature.” This is false. There is no increase in […]

“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 […]

“It occurred to me…” every saying has a contradictory saying except “ignorance is bliss”. If an honest man is wrong, after demonstrating that he is wrong, he either stops being wrong or he stops being honest. Anonymous T H Huxley said, “The great tragedy of science – the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly […]

“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
