GOREHAM, THE ANTIDOTE TO GORE, PUBLISHED IN LEADING RI NEWSPAPER

Thu, 01/01/2015 - 00:58

January 1, 2015: "A year of futility in fight against climate change," by Steve Goreham, executive director of the Climate Science Coalition of America and author of the book “The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism: Mankind and Climate Change Mania,” published in The Journal, Providence, Rhode Island. 

"The year 2014 was another year of futility in the fight against climate change. Climatists redoubled efforts to convince citizens that urgent action is needed to stop dangerous global warming. But the gap between public warnings and actual events produced an endless stream of climate irony.

"January began with a frosty bang as an arctic air mass descended on the central United States, following a similar event in December. What was once called a cold snap is now ominously christened a “polar vortex.” Record-low daily temperatures were recorded from Minnesota to Boston, along with all-time seasonal snowfalls in many cities."

NEWS RELEASE - UN SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON WHAT PEOPLE WANT

Thu, 12/11/2014 - 18:00

Attention: News Editors, Political, Science and Environment Reporters

TIME FOR THE UN TO GET OUT OF CLIMATE CHANGE Negotiators and Secretary General continue to ignore scientists and public opinion

Ottawa, Canada, December 13, 2014: “Climate change negotiators in Lima, Peru seemed oblivious to the findings of the UN’s ongoing My World survey about what the people of the world really want the agency to focus on,” said Tom Harris, executive director of the Ottawa, Canada-based International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC). “The seven million people polled so far indicate that, in comparison with issues such as education, health care, jobs, and energy, they care very little about climate change.”

“Perhaps most out of touch with reality is the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon himself who on Wednesday asserted that climate change remains his ‘top priority’," continued Harris.

ICSC chief science advisor, Professor Bob Carter, former Head of the Department of Earth Sciences at James Cook University in Australia explained, “That ‘action taken on climate change’ rates dead last among the 16 priorities the public wants to see action on is not surprising. They understand that the remote possibility of human activity contributing to climate problems decades from now is unimportant in comparison with the very real problems faced by the world’s poor today.

UN SECRETARY GENERAL CONTINUES TO IGNORE CLIMATE REALISTS

Tue, 12/09/2014 - 18:00

December 12, 2014: United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon demonstrated that he remains out of touch with the realities of climate science when he asserted on Tuesday that "Science has not only spoken – it is shouting from the rooftops. Our planet has a fever – and it is getting hotter every day."

On three occasions, leading climate experts have explained, via widely publicized open letters delivered to Mr. Ban's office, where he is going wrong on the science:

The Secretary General did not even acknowledge receipt of the open letters, let alone address any of the scientists’ concerns.

LUCTOR ET EMERGO - SCHOLARLY REVIEW OF SEA LEVELS ISSUES

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 00:35

December 1, 2014: The question of whether and by how much sea levels may rise or fall under the influence of "global warming" has been rekindled in New Zealand by the recent release of a report by the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Jan Wright. It is apparent that whatever other advice Dr. Wright may have relied on, the year-old report by NZCSC scientist Dr. Gerrit van der Lingen was not one of them. For that reason, it is timely to make that well-researched 29-page report available here. It has been highly recommended for its depth and scholarship by no less an authority than Professor Freeman Dyson.

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."

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.
