Comprised of 450 instrumental records from temperature stations sheltered from ocean-air/urbanization/adjustment biases throughout the world, a new 20th/21st century global temperature record introduced previously here very closely aligns with paleoclimate evidence from tree rings, ice cores, fossil pollen and other temperature proxies.
U.S. logician, Dr David Wojick, posts at WUWT: "As a logician, I am always on the lookout for fallacies and there is no lack of them in climate change alarmist policies. New Zealand’s newly released climate risk assessment not only has multiple fallacies, they build on one another in a cascade."
Professor Will Happer writes at CFact (U.S.): "The good news is that the New York Times has finally permitted its readers to hear that the whole world is greening from more atmospheric CO2. The bad news is that the rest of the article is devoted to demonizing this essential gas, despite the fact that H2O (water) and CO2 are the main building blocks of living things."
The Irish Climate Science Forum offers a comprehensive 2019 overview of the observed science: "The latest research and observations indicate that while there is an anthropogenic Green‐House Gas (GHG) influence, it is considerably less than depicted by the IPCC. Much more is also now understood about solar and other natural influences, weather events and many physical observations. Objective analysis of the facts points to prudent mitigation action butdoes not indicate a looming climate crisis."
Who cares about pesky facts? The ABC has a hysterical narrative to peddle. "Climate change is the single biggest challenge ever faced by humanity. We have absolutely no time to lose." If you believe that, you’ll probably believe that the ABC’s “Fact Checking Unit” actually checks facts. This post, from New Zealand blog TheBFD, about the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) is an example of the biased alarmism practised by news media through the world, in spite of the complete absence of any convincing evidence that we are in a "climate emergency".
We've just picked up on this video which recounts the text of a letter from Canadian climate skeptic Dr Ross McKitrick in which he talks about what happens to people who openly challenge the current wave of propaganda alleging man-made climate change. Watch this video if you need help to stand up to the alarmists.(Thanks to Whaleoil Beef Hooked blog - link takes a few seconds to load).
U.S. climate scientist Judith Curry writes in a newspaper in Madird, scene of the latest U.N. IPCC Conference of Parties: "There is a growing realization that Paris climate agreement is inadequate for making a meaningful dent in slowing down the anticipated warming. And the real societal consequences of climate change and extreme weather events remain largely unaddressed. How have we arrived at this point? For the past three decades, the climate policy ‘cart’ has been way out in front of the scientific ‘horse’. "
Our earlier posting of links to Dr John McLean's exposure of errors in the HadCrut temperature data relied on by the IPCC for its (mostly misleading) predictions, reminded us of the 2009 paper by Joseph D'Aleo and Anthony Watts that analysed the siting of temperature recording stations. That paper is worth reading again in 2018 as IPCC makes more scary predictions, continuing its line of alarmist forecasts which have still not come to pass.
Australian author Tony Thomas posts at Quadrant: "Adult climate catastrophists have flipped to censorship, abuse and hysteria to back tomorrow’s climate-truant kids and the latest UN gabfest in New York on Monday. The ‘progressive’ media has dropped its mask of objectivity, with more than 170 global...
In an op-ed in the New Zealand Herald, Leighton Smith writes about the death of Freeman Dyson, the brilliant physicist who was acclaimed as the successor to Albert Einstein, and then introduces us to expatriate New Zealand scientist Professor Byron Sharp with a hint that Sharp might become known as the successor to Dyson.
In this post, Anthony Watts of the highly regarded blog WattsUpWithThat shows seven charts relating to climate behaviour in the United States during the decade recently concluded, that expose the fallacies propagated by the catastrophycisists who preach "dangerous global warming".
Two world renowned scientists in their field, Professors William Happer and W.A. van Wijngaarden write:"So the contribution of methane to the annual increase in forcing is one tenth (30/300) that of carbon dioxide. The net forcing from CH and CO increases is about 0.05 W m−2 year−1. Other things being equal, this will cause a temperature increase of about 0.012 C year. Proposals to place harsh restrictions on methane emissions because of warming fears are not justified by facts."
With deepest regret we record the death in Wellington last week of one of the founding fathers of our Coalition, Dr Vincent R. Gray, at age 96. An indefatigable reviewer of every IPCC report so far, Dr Gray published many well-researched critiques of errors and misjudgements he found in IPCC reports, being especially harsh on computer models, with his constant refrain "Correlation is not evidence of causation." In the early years of our Coalition,his expert observations helped many of us to counter false propaganda advanced by the witless Green Party, condoned without correction by the gutless other New Zealand political parties. RIP.
This post by John Rofe, a New Zealand fraud investigator and columnist on energy issues tells a sad story of how and why the man-made global warming hoax was created by a wealthy minority to eliminate their multi-national taxation problems throigh a one-world government.
SEE NEW FILM 'CLIMATE HUSTLE 2"
In his new weekly Wednesday column for NewZealand's most widely-read blog, TheBFD, our Coalition honorary secretary Terry Dunleavy has reviewed CFact's new film, "Climate Hustle 2" which he striongly recommends to anyone seeking the truth about what Earth's climate is doing - or not doing, and the motivations of the wealthy elite who have fomented the false alarm.
Vijay Jayaraj posts at Cornwall Alliance about how climate alarmists refuse to recognise, let alone acknowledge, how much world supplies oif food have increased in recent years as a result of increases in Earth's atmosphere of the trace gas carbon dioxide.
"The latest well-known person exploited in this way is documentary producer Sir David Attenborough, who was taken in by the false story of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). It appears he let his socialist views over-ride any sense of science he might have. The trouble is he doesn’t appear to have any science training. He is an English Grammar School graduate who identifies himself as a naturalist. This is like the practice of people identifying themselves as environmentalists." Dr Tim Ball posts at 'WattsUpWIthThat'.
Dr Mototaka Nakamura writes: “The global surface mean temperature-change data no longer have any scientific value and are nothing except a propaganda tool to the public.” The climate models are useful tools for academic studies, he admits. However: “The models just become useless pieces of junk or worse (as they can produce gravely misleading output) when they are used for climate forecasting.”
We re-post this important paper by Drs Jock Allison (New Zealand) and Tom Sheahen (USA) to facilitate its discovery by our website search engine, in view of the extraordinarily wide demand for access to a paper that corrects outrageous over-exaggeration about the effects of agricultural emissions of trace gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.
At his blog, The Rational Optimist, Viscount Matt Ridley explains why legislating for "zero carbon" by 2050, is akin to legislating to abolish sin.
Dr Tim Ball and Tom Harris post at communalnews.com: "Why are the public generally unaware of the important research that connects variations in the output of the Sun with climate change? They should know about it, since the Sun is responsible for far more climate change than anything we cause. The reason for this ignorance is that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate ..."
