A penetrating comment by an American science professor Dr Steve Koonin, writing in the "Wall Street Journal" about the history of "last chance"predictions of a climate crisis.
CLINTEL (the Climate Intelligence Foundation) has carried out a preliminary review of the IPCC Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the AR6 WGI report (on the Physical Science) just issued. It appears that the SPM is, as in previous reports, prone to data exaggeration and so provides little objective basis for policymaking. Surprisingly, climate scientists from IPCC-circles only last week admitted that their new AR6 generation of climate models are ‘overheated’ and therefore too alarmist.
Distinguished New Zealand meteorologist Dr John Maunder reports on minimal changes in temperature in the troposphere: "The chart created by the University if Alabama, Huntsville, USA, shows that since 1979, when reliable satellite observations became available, there has been little overall trend in the average tropospheric temperatures, apart from milder/warmer temperatures since about 1997, and two significant warm periods associated with the El Nino events in 1998 and 2015-16."
There are no more distinguished or highly credentialed experts in climatology in the world than Professors Richard Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor Emeritus of atmospheric sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and William Happer, the Cyrus Fogg Bracket Professor Emeritus, of physics at Princeton University. In this detailed scientific analysis posted at National Review, they explain why there is no climate emergency.
In a report for the UK's Global Warming Policy Foundation, Dr Ralph B Alexander cites details from official documents that show a decline in extreme weather events during 2020, causing less deaths. Dr Alexander, a Ph.D in physics from the University of Oxford, is a professor at Wayne State University in Detroit.
Danish climate analyst Bjorn Lomborg's latest post: "To tackle climate change, rich nations are promising to end fossil fuel use in 29 years. As this becomes excruciatingly costly, the G7 is now thinking about making the world’s poor pay for it. That will go badly. The rich world has seen incredible development on the back of enormous increases in mostly fossil fuel energy. A couple of hundred years ago, most available power came from backbreaking human work. Even by the end of the 1800s, human labour made up 94 per cent of all industrial work in the US. Today, it constitutes just 8 per cent...Despite green protestations, rich people still get 79 per cent of their energy from fossil fuels. Ending that will be hard, socially destabilising and surprisingly ineffective."
Distinguished New Zealand meteorologist Dr John Maunder explains how the behaviour of the Sun is measured by "sunspots" and how the Sun is clearly the dominating element in effecting natural cyclical changes in the climates of Plant Earth. He also explains the origin of the cooler periods named after his famous namesake, the Maunder Minimum.
Not everyone who tells us: "Listen to the science" is telling the real truth. This post explains why science is important in telling us was IS, not WHAT OUGHT TO BE.
Eminent US climate scientist, Dr Judith Curry, in a post at "Climate, Etc", writes: "The consensus building process acts to amplify personal biases, and marginalizes disagreement from either a majority opinion or the opinion of the loudest or most motivated person in the room. One can only speculate on the magnitude and importance of the biases introduced into climate science by the IPCC’s consensus seeking process."
This is the tribute by UK journalist James Delingpole to Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who has died in London at the age of 99.

How dependable is climate science? Global warming mitigation policies depend on the credibility and integrity of climate science. In turn, that depends on a deterministic model of the climate system in which it is possible to quantify the role of carbon dioxide (CO2) with...

Dr Ian Flanigan, an Australian graduate in chemistry, explains why claims that carbon dioxide is a significant cause of global warming cannot be supported if the scientific method is applied. "Let us do the impermissible and look at the science behind the question of wheth...
