U.S.HOUSE OF REPS. TOLD MAGNITUDE OF CLIMATE CHANGE IS HIGHLY UNCERTAIN

Posted 16 April 2015

"Anthropogenic climate change is a theory in which the basic mechanism is well understood, but the potential magnitude is highly uncertain. We know that the climate changes naturally on decadal to century time scales, but we do not have explanations for as number of observed historical and paleo-climate variations, including the warming from 1910-1940, the mid-20th century  cooling and the 21st century hiatus in warming. Disagreement regarding climate change arises from our recognized uncertainty regarding natural climate variability".  An extract from a wide-ranging and scholarly submission on climate to the U.S. House of Representatives Science Committee by Dr Judith Curry, a climate scientist of 30 years standing, former Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

US SENATORS PUT KEY QUESTIONS ABOUT IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE TO EPA HEAD

Posted 4 April 2015

The leading role played by the American Government and President in trying to impose on the world the grossly inflated costs of "renewable energy" is led by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is important for other countries to understand the politics being played out of Washington DC on this issue, and to support the efforts of Senators like James Inhofe (R,Oklahoma) to force the EPA to base its decisions on fact and established science as they actually are, rather than what that agency's zealots would like them to be. This post contains a letter from Senator Inhofe and three colleagues to the EPA Administrator, and summarises the situation fairly succinctly.

CLIMATE SCIENTISTS: OPPORTUNISTS WHO PROFIT FROM POORLY SUPPORTED DOOMSDAY PREDICTIONS?

Posted 31 March 2015

"The scientific theories promoted by the global warming advocates are soft targets. Their science is lousy. But critical scientific arguments are highly technical and only of use in getting authoritative scientists to join the skeptical side. To influence the vast majority of citizens, including non-specialist scientists, emotional arguments are necessary. My suggestion would be to paint a picture of a future when global warming promoters get what they want and everyone else loses money, mobility, jobs, etc. Combine this with authoritative scientists saying that global warming dogma is scientifically flawed and you have a winning formula." Policy advisor Norman Rogers posts at American Thinker.

FOSSIL FUELS GREATEST BLESSING TO HAVE EVER BEEN VISITED UPON OUR SPECIES

Posted 28 March 2015

"Let me begin with a simple, and surely and incontrovertible, proposition. It is that the abundant availability of fossil fuels, combined with the wit that has allowed human beings to exploit them, is the greatest blessing ever to have been visited on the species. After all, without them no BBC at all, and no University of Oxford - well, at least not as to be recognisable today,"  Thus begins a letter to Lord Hall, Director General of the BBC, written by Rupert Wyndham, a former Times journalist, now 70, who describes his interests as "travel across the world and enhancing my carbon footprint for its benefit. Challenging politicians, clergymen, dishonest broadcasters and other assorted riff-raff". He was protesting about a BBC broadcast describing shareholding in fossil fuel extraction as "an ethical issue".
