CLIMATE SCIENTISTS AGREE - GLOBAL WARMING HAS STOPPED

Thu, 11/20/2014 - 01:09

November 19, 2014: "If 97% of Scientists Say Global Warming is Real, 100% Say It Has Nearly Stopped," by Paul C. “Chip” Knappenberger and Patrick J. Michaels, Center for the Study of Science, Cato Institute, published as a guest essay on Watts Up With That?, The world's most viewed site on global warming and climate change, Chico, California.

"Of the 100 papers we identified, 65 didn’t have anything to do with recent global temperature trends (these typified papers published prior to about 2010). Of the remaining 35 papers, every single one of them acknowledged in some way that a hiatus, pause, or slowdown in global warming was occurring.

"In other words, we didn’t find a single paper on the topic that argued the rate of global warming has not slowed (or even stopped) in recent years. This is in direct opposition to the IPCC’s contention that global warming is accelerating, and supports arguments that the amount of warming that will occur over the remainder of the 21st century as a result of human fossil fuel usage will be at the low end of the IPCC projections, or even lower. Low-end warming yields low-end impacts."

ICSC CONTESTS CANADIAN GREEN PARTY LEADER ON NEW UN CLIMATE REPORT

Sun, 11/02/2014 - 17:27

NEWS RELEASE - CURRENT APPROACH TO CLIMATE CHANGE IS IMMORAL

Sat, 11/01/2014 - 18:00

Attention: News Editors, Political, Science and Environment Reporters

UN MUST REVERSE COURSE ON CLIMATE CHANGE Focus on stopping global warming and extreme weather is unscientific and immoral 

Ottawa, Canada, November 2, 2014: “IPCC Chairman Dr. Rajendra Pachauri was right to advocate “a global agreement to finally reverse course on climate change” when he spoke to delegates tasked with approving the IPCC Synthesis Report, released on Sunday," said Tom Harris, executive director of the Ottawa, Canada-based International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC). “The new direction governments should follow must be one in which the known needs of people suffering today are given priority over problems that might someday be faced by those yet to be born.”

“Yet, exactly the opposite is happening,” continued Harris. “Of the roughly one billion U.S. dollars spent every day across the world on climate finance, only 6% of it is devoted to helping people adapt to climate change in the present. The rest is wasted trying to stop improbable future climatic events. That is immoral.”

COMMON SENSE FROM AUSTRALIA'S CARBON SENSE COALITION

 Australian Climate Protestors "NOT HAPPY", they say (see banner to the left - click image to expand)

October 16, 2014: "Cut the Costly Climate Chatter" by , geologist , financial analyst and farmer with a degree in Applied Science (geology, physics, chemistry and maths), founder of Carbon Sense Coalition, Queensland, Australia.

"Rich and poor all over the world have endured 21 years of wasteful spending [on climate mitigation] that could have built flood-proof infrastructure, drought-proof water supplies, erosion-proof beach fronts and pollution-free waterways. It has gone down the global warming gurgler without a single visible benefit for suffering tax-payers."

Dr. Moore was co-founder of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. He left Greenpeace in 1986 because of his concern at the anti-science and extreme political policies it was adopting. He is visiting Australia to explain why his view of catastrophic global warming differs from that of the extreme green movement.

PREPARE FOR COLD PERIODS, NOT WARM ONES

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 19:41

September 12, 2014: "Heading for ice age" by ICSC Chief Science Advisor, Professor Bob Carter, published in The Australian, Surry Hills, NSW, Australia.

GRAHAM Lloyd has reported on the Bureau of Meteorology’s capitulation to scientific criticism that it should publish an accounting of the corrections it makes to temperature records (“Bureau warms to transparency over adjusted records”, 12/9). Corrections which, furthermore, act to reinforce the bureau’s dedication to a prognosis of future dangerous global warming, by turning cooling temperature trends into warming ones — a practice also known to occur in the US, Britain and New Zealand.

Meanwhile, we have a report by Sue Neales that the size of our grain harvest remains in doubt following severe frosts in southern NSW killing large areas of early wheat crops and also damaging wheat and canola crops in South Australia and Victoria (“Trifecta of calamities to deplete. crop harvest”, 12/9)

Is it unreasonable to be surprised that none of your writers, much less the government, has noticed that leading solar astrophysicists, such as Habibullo Abdussamatov from Pulkovo Observatory in St Petersburg, have for years been commenting on the declining activity of the sun?

These scientists are projecting a significant cooling over the next three decades, and perhaps even the occurrence of another little ice age.

Obsessed as they are with a gentle global warming trend that stopped late last century, should the expected solar cooling eventuate, policy makers will rue the day they failed to heed the advice of independent scientists on climate change issues.

IPCC TEMPERATURE FORECASTS WRONG FOR THE PAST 70 YEARS

Thu, 08/07/2014 - 16:24

August 7, 2014: "Global Warming Pause Puts 'Crisis' In Perspective", by James Taylor, JD, senior fellow for environment policy at the Heartland Institute and managing editor of Environment & Climate News.

"the admittedly less reliable ground-based mercury temperature readings from the mid-1940s through the late 1970s reported global cooling during the three decades immediately prior to the satellite era. Accordingly, the time period for which real-world temperatures are not rising nearly as rapidly as IPCC predictions is now not just 35 years, but approximately 70 years."
