Hold the Front Page — Climate Scepticism

The IPCC’s sixth assessment report (AR6) is due out any day now and I can barely sleep with all of the excitement. In fact, I’m so wide awake that I certainly don’t need the wake-up call that it promises to deliver. That said, the scientists and activists have provided so many wake-up calls over the […]

Greta: “This Show is Over” — Climate Scepticism

Eric Worrall at WattsUpWithThat alerted us to Great Thunberg’s speech at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Austrian World Summit 2021 I was going to transcribe it, but it’s rather long and predictable, so I’ll just give you her final words. “The audience has grown weary. This show is over. Thank you” And she’s right of course. Youtube’s viewing […]

When Climateers Let the Truth Slip Out — Climate Scepticism

One of the anti-science techniques used by climate catastrophists such as the green-Left Australian Academy of Science, the ABC and the Climate Council is to suppress information about the benefits of actual and future hypothesised global warming.[1] It’s hardly surprising that the media’s partisans follow suit as they churn out their climate doomsday pieces. However there […]

Climate Alarmism – The Religion that Unites us all — Climate Scepticism

A teacher of my acquaintance lives in an ethnically (and religiously) diverse area. She advised me that they have solved the “problem” of how to hold religious assemblies that might effectively exclude or offend pupils of different religions. Simple – they hold “green” assemblies instead. I wondered how this might work, and a quick online […]

Emotion, Decisions – And Climate Change — Climate Scepticism

I’d like to talk to you today about emotion; in particular, what it is and why it is important. And for reasons that I hope will become apparent later, I will start by offering a definition that is inspired by systems theory: At its essence, emotion is the name we give to a complex, autonomous, […]

Cool the Planet or We Kill the Dog — Climate Scepticism

My spaniel, Natasha, has outworn her welcome at our house. According to apex climate scientists doing their peer-reviewed work at universities, dogs and cats are harming the planet with their substantial carbon footprints (make that pawprints). I should replace Natasha, they say, with more climate-friendly pets like galahs, edible hens and rabbits, hamsters, and tortoises. […]

We’re Walking in the Air — Climate Scepticism

In keeping with much of the country, our neighbourhood had a goodly fall of snow last week. Of course, to maintain my climate denial persona, I should now be saying, ‘So much for global warming’. But the reality is that it hasn’t been particularly cold for the time of year. I’d say instead that it […]

Despair — Climate Scepticism

Edmund Burke once wrote: “Never despair, but if you do, work on in despair.” I just hope he would have made it to the end of this thread. Let’s add a beautiful, tranquil backdrop. That’s all very well, Mr BrainyQuote, but what work can we usefully do about climate alarm and its resultant, seemingly all-powerful, […]

The Australian Fires/Climate Change Link: Activists Spread BS Across The Media – Because They’ve Got Nothing To Go On — Climate Scepticism

 

A series of Comments and Correspondence have recently been published in Nature Climate Change and the legacy alarmist media has gone into overdrive to spin the false narrative once again that climate change ’caused’ the devastating Australian bushfires. This is obviously very important to them; they simply must establish the link between the […]

‘Journalists’ Against Free Speech — Climate Scepticism

 

Local barbarians are now calling for state-sanctioned silencing of those they brand “climate deniers”. It’s sad that these people infest the state-run ABC TV, academia and journalism, three institutions where democratic values and support for free inquiry should be the default positions. Tony Thomas A verse by W.B. Yeats has been adapted to many a […]

Australian Bushfires – Assessing The Role of Climate Change — Climate Scepticism

 

The pitch black hue of Green ideology is revealed to us in the spreading stain of false event attribution which is oozing its way across social media and the alarmist main stream media right now. It is the absurd, irrational, insane, driven, hysterical, urgent, fanatical, obsessive need to attribute the near apocalyptic human and […]

New climate models – even more wrong — Climate Scepticism

 

The IPCC AR5 Report included this diagram, showing that climate models exaggerate recent warming: If you want to find it, it’s figure 11.25, also repeated in the Technical Summary as figure TS-14. The issue is also discussed in box TS3: “However, an analysis of the full suite of CMIP5 historical simulations (augmented for the period […]

Maybe only 15% of CO2 increase since 1750 due to us – an unsettling result for those on board that luxuriously funded liner called the SS Climate Consensus. — Climate Scepticism

The aim of trying to model climate by running simulations squillions of times when we know the system is crazily complex does seem absurd, and indeed liable to produce every possible kind of climate unless carefully tended by high priests who know what to look for to provide illustrations of the man-made […]

Should universities declare a “climate emergency”? — Climate Scepticism

At a website called WONKHE, which arrogantly claims that it is “the home of higher education policy, bringing the sector together through expert, trusted and essential analysis”, there’s a blog post saying Declaring a climate emergency is an important first step. What do we do next? It’s by someone called Keri Facer, who apparently […]

Trump’s “Attack on Climate Science” is a War on Climate Alarmism Combined With Legitimate Scepticism — Climate Scepticism

Let it not be said that Trump is a canny politician. He is not. What he is, is a ruthless and committed opponent of unilateral ‘climate action’ which he passionately believes is economically disadvantaging the US to the benefit of its global competitors like China, Russia, India and other Far Eastern and Middle […]

NASA Climate Change have an account on Facebook where they regularly update their followers with the latest news and research re. the ‘climate crisis’.

Cambridge Scientists Set Up The World’s First Climate Repair Centre — Climate Scepticism

 

Paul Homewood beat me to it with this, but I just can’t resist writing a post on it also. Just too funny. The BBC reports that Cambridge scientists are to set up a centre looking at ways to ‘fix’ the climate. One of the ideas apparently is to “refreeze the poles”. The initiative is […]

The worst lie in Climate Change – The Facts? — Climate Scepticism

 

Which was the worst lie in the BBC’s climate propaganda programme? There is a lot of competition, but my vote goes to Michael Mann’s claim, just a minute in, that “All of this is happening far faster than any of us thought possible.” There is so much wrong with this statement and the way the […]

It’s Earth Day, so let’s talk about the Earth. Let’s talk about life on earth and the much maligned chemical which makes most life possible – CO², the Thermageddon Molecule.

BBC refuse to correct error — Climate Scepticism

 

A few weeks ago, as reported here, the BBC and the rest of the media gave a great deal of publicity to a report from a think tank making untrue statements about climate change. In particular, Martha Kearney, on the Radio 4 Today Programme, read out the following falsehood to her 7 million listeners: But […]

Invasion of the Transphobic Climate Deniers — Climate Scepticism

We’ve discussed here the views of Jordan Peterson (on climate activism, among other things) and I’ve been developing a healthy paranoia about Cambridge University, where professors of history and computery stuff are involved in an international five year plan to get climate scepticism recognised as an official conspiracy theory, alongside invasions of aliens (the […]

Met Office try to hide forecast fail — Climate Scepticism

 

The Met Office have today issued their latest piece of warmest propaganda, Forecast suggests Earth’s warmest period on record. It includes this graph, showing observations (black), forecast (blue) and previous forecasts (red). The climate scientists quoted seem to be in denial of the recent cooling shown in their own graph, claiming that the Earth’s average global […]

Conspiracy: by the Cambridge Three — Climate Scepticism

The theory that climate sceptics are conspiracy theorists has received confirmation from research conducted by an organisation called CRASSH, the Cambridge-based Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, as part of their five-year Leverhulme Trust-funded project Conspiracy and Democracy. Led by Professor Sir Richard Evans, Professor John Naughton, and Professor David Runciman, […]

August Goes Pear-Shaped, Dashing Warmist Hopes of a Record Summer — Climate Scepticism

What is the sound of one hand hand-wringing? — Climate Scepticism

One of my favourite lines in anything I’ve ever read about politics is possibly an apocryphal attribution to Voltaire. On being told that, ‘life is hard’, Voltaire is said to have replied, ‘compared to what?’. Comparison is essential to all humanist thinking – thinking that puts humans, rather than gods and monsters, at the centre […]

Committee on Climate Change Misleads Parliament and Public — Climate Scepticism

The Committee on Climate Change has released a new brochure, Reducing UK emissions, described as a “2018 Progress Report to Parliament”.
