CLIMATE A CASUALTY OF ENVIRONMENTAL REPORTING IN A POST-TRUTH WORLD

Posted 11 September 2017

"The science publication Nature Climate Change this year, published a study demonstrating Earth this century warmed substantially less than computer-generated climate models predict. Unfortunately for public knowledge, such findings don’t appear in the news. Sea levels too have not been obeying the ‘grand transnational narrative’ of catastrophic global warming." David Blackall, Senior Lecturer in Journalism at University of Wollongong, Australia, notes the lamentable state of scientific reporting, adding: "Observational scientific analyses and their data sets continue to disagree with much of climate science modelling, and are beginning to suggest that some natural phenomena, which cause variability, may never be identified"

AL GORE'S CLAIMS TO CLIMATE TRUTH MAKE NO SENSE - NO ONE KNOWS

Posted 6 September 2017

 "The central premise of former US Vice President Al Gore's climate change films is impossible.  Not merely wrong or exaggerated, as many of his opponents claim, but literally impossible.  Gore is supposedly telling us 'truth' about climate science....But Gore does not really know the truth about the causes and consequences of climate change. Indeed no one does, not even the world's leading experts. This is not just because the science is enormously complicated. It is also because scientific hypotheses, and even scientififc theories, are not absolute truth; they can be, and often are, wrong. Science 'facts' are merely the current opinions of experts, and, especially in the case of climate change, different experts often have very different points of view." Tom Harris, executive director of the International Climate Science Coalition, writing in the UK's World Commerce Review.

WHY HOUSTON FLOODING ISN'T A SIGN OF CLIMATE CHANGE

Posted 29 August 2017

Distinguished US climate scientist, Dr Roy Spencer writes: "In the context of climate change, is what we are seeing in Houston a new level of disaster which is becoming more common? The flood disaster unfolding in Houston is certainly very unusual. But so are other natural weather disasters, which have always occurred and always will occur....Major floods are difficult to compare throughout history because of the ways we alter the landscape., For example, as cities like Houston expand over the years, soil is covered up by roads, parking lots and buidings, with water rapidly draining off rather than soaking into the soil. The population of Houston is now ten times what is was in the 1920s.  The Houston metroplex has expanded greatly and the water drainage is basically in the direction of downtown Houston."

NEW RESEARCH REVEALS OFFICIALLY ADJUSTED TEMPERATURE DATA ARE TOTALLY INCONSISTENT WITH RECORDS

Posted 12 July 2017

"The objective of this research was to test the hypothesis that Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data produced by NOAA, NASA and HADLEY are sufficiently credible estimates of global average temperatures, such that they can be relied upon for climate modelling and policy analysis purposes.... The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation in reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historial data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credibe U.S. and other temperature data."
