LEADING CLIMATE EXPERT SMEARED BY ACTIVISTS FOR PROMOTING SCIENCE OVER DOGMA

Sun, 03/01/2015 - 23:34

Click here to watch the acceptance speech of astrophysicistand geoscientist Dr. Willie Soon, a leading authority on the relationshipbetween solar phenomena and global climate, after receiving thefirst 'Courage in Defense of Science Award' at the 9th InternationalConference on Climate Change on July 8, 2014

“The Heartland Institute stands four-square behind Willie Soon. He’s a brilliant and courageous scientist devoted entirely to pursuing scientific knowledge. His critics are all ethically challenged and mental midgets by comparison. We plan to continue to work with Willie on future editions of Climate Change Reconsidered and feature him at future International Conferences on Climate Change, including the next one, the tenth, scheduled to take place in June in Washington, DC.

— Joseph L. Bast, president, The Heartland Institute

LEARN ABOUT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CLIMATE DEBATE

Wed, 02/11/2015 - 00:09

February 11, 2015: The Institute of Public Affairs is proud to publish Climate Change: The Facts 2014, featuring 22 chapters on the science, politics and economics of the climate change debate. Climate Change: The Facts 2014 features the world’s leading experts and commentators on climate change. Highlights of Climate Change: The Facts 2014 include:

Ian Plimer draws on the geological record to dismiss the possibility that human emissions of carbon dioxide will lead to catastrophic consequences for the planet. Patrick Michaels demonstrates the growing chasm between the predictions of the IPCC and the real world temperature results. Richard Lindzen shows the climate is less sensitive to increases in greenhouse gases than previously thought and argues that a warmer world would have a similar weather variability to today. Willie Soon discusses the often unremarked role of the sun in climate variability. Robert Carter explains why the natural variability of the climate is far greater than any human component. John Abbot and Jennifer Marohasy demonstrate how little success climate models have in predicting important information such as rainfall.

BOSTON GLOBE COLUMNIST SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT

Tue, 02/03/2015 - 16:13

February 3, 2015: "No, 2014 wasn’t the ‘warmest year in history’," by Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe, Boston, Massachusetts.

"All of which reasonably leads to the conclusion not that the planet has been relentlessly warming, but that the warming trend that peaked at the end of the 1990s has neither resumed nor reversed. Global warming has more or less been on hold since the turn of the 21st century. That hiatus poses something of an inconvenient truth to those who believe that anthropogenic carbon-dioxide is the key driver of climate change, since CO2 emissions have continued without letup."

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."
