Scientist Worries About Return To Little Ice Age Type Conditions

As always, I’ll start with the notion of “I’ll believe it when it happens”. It will happen at some point, most likely within the next 100-200 years, based on the history of the Holocene (BBC) It’s known by climatologists as the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period in the 1600s when harsh winters across the UK […]

Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations By Time Period

Tom Nelson says “not to miss this” He’s right. I’ve cut the chart in two below the fold so we can look at it in a larger format

Bummer: Sea Rise Worse Than We Thought

And by worse, I mean worse for the disciples of the Cult Of Climate Change (Daily Caller) When Barack Obama promised to slow the earth’s rising sea levels and heal the planet during the 2008 campaign, he probably had no idea that curbing carbon dioxide emissions might not lower the sea levels. A study published […]

After Doing That Scientific Research Stuff, FDA Reconsidering Use Of Avandia

Originally, scientists found that the diabetes drug Avandia could cause heart attacks, so is now used as a drug of last resort (hey, how about those prescription drug commercials which use half the time to describe the possible side effects, like blindness, dark urine, and death? I really like the one about depression drugs causing […]

Is It CFCs, Not CO2, That Caused This Warm Period?

Obviously, I’m not a scientist. I’ve never claimed to be. But, that’s OK, because this whole “climate change” issue is mostly a political one, not a scientific one. I can get into the science, but I do not go as deep as, say, Anthony Watts or Dr. Roy Spencer. So, I’ve been trying to work […]

And We’re Supposed To Trust “Climate Scientists” Why, Exactly?

Food for though (Guardian) The proportion of scientific research that is retracted due to fraud has increased tenfold since 1975, according to the most comprehensive analysis yet of how research papers go wrong. The study, published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that more than two-thirds of the biomedical […]

Snap! Sunspots Do Impact Climate

I think you can forgive me for using “Snap!” Been awhile, and this article deserves it (via Climate Depot) (Washington Times) Scientists have been studying solar influences on the climate for more than 5,000 years. Chinese imperial astronomers kept detailed sunspot records. They noticed that more sunspots meant warmer weather. In 1801, the celebrated astronomer […]

Good Grief: New York To Be Swamped By 2.77mm Of Sea Rise A Year

On Sunday’s I usually like to wait till the afternoon to post another article, what with the Patriotic Pinup post. However, I ran across a really silly doom and gloom Warmist article over at Tom Nelson’s spot, which is truly idiotic and scaremongering, pushed by the AFP New York at risk from rising sea levels […]

Confirmed: The Less You Know About Science The More You Believe In The Climate Change Hoax

Just to be clear, by “climate change hoax” I mean the notion that man is mostly or solely responsible for every change in the weather, known as hotcoldwetdry, and the slight uptick in temperatures since the end of the Little Ice Age. And, in a bit of comical irony, we find out, via James Delingpole, […]

16 Concerned Scientists: Chill Out, No Need To Freak Over Anthropogenic Global Warming

Why? Because “There’s no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to ‘decarbonize’ the world’s economy.” After a few paragraphs describing how not every scientist is a Warmist, and the numbers who are opting out of previous held beliefs that Mankind is mostly or solely at fault, we get to (h/t Climate Depot) (Wall Street Journal) […]
