We're doomed! The end is near!

“51% of young voters believe life on Earth will end in the next 10-15 years: Poll” That’s the headline in the Washington Times, reporting on a Scott Rasmussen/HarrisX national survey. According to the survey: Half (51%) of voters under 35 believe it is at least somewhat likely humanity will be wiped out in the next decade... Read more »

Media blow another climate change story

Something important was missing from the reporting on a recent study concluding that climate change threatens the Great Lakes with more flooding, heat waves and drought. The study, “The Impacts of Climate Change on the Great Lakes, also warns that the Great Lakes region is warming faster than the rest of America. Release of the... Read more »

Pritzker joins other financially hurting states as part of the U.S. Climate Alliance

One of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s first acts was to sign up with 14 other states pledging to commit to the Paris Climate Alliance, to the cheers of global warming alarmists. Why? To ask the question is to answer it. “Bill’s Blog” in Truth in Accounting observes: Taking a look at the list of those... Read more »

Climate scientist says costs of implementing UN report aren't worth it

This is not just any old climate scientist. This is Yale economist William D. Nordhaus, who according to the New York Times, “has spent the better part of four decades trying to persuade governments to address climate change, preferably by imposing a tax on carbon emissions.” In recognition of his work he was awarded the 2018 Nobel Memorial...

Another explanation for the melting of the West Antarctic's ice sheet

Before anyone goes haywire, accusing me of being a global warming denier, I’m posting this only because it illustrates how complex science is and that there are alternative explanations for natural phenomena. This comes from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory: A new NASA study adds evidence that a geothermal heat source called a mantle plume lies... Read more »

Hundreds of studies challenge scientific "consensus" on climate change

Someone checked out 400 scientific papers (really?) and concluded that challenge the scientific “consensus” that climate change (no longer called global warming) is fueled my manmade CO2 emissions. If you can plow through all this science, please let me know. I admit that 400 papers  is a lot more than I can handle. I make... Read more »

Wait, global warming isn't killing the polar bears?

For all the sirens going off about how global warming (sorry, climate change) is threatening polar bears, it seems they have been thriving. So much so that they no longer are a ubiquitous symbol for atmospheric warming. Read about it in Fat polar bears [and lots of them] drive public confidence in future of the species in Polar Bear...

Oops, Europe's CO2 emissions increase

For all the lecturing that the Europeans do about America’s “failed” leadership in the fight against human-caused global warming, it should be noted that while America has been decreasing the amount of carbon dioxide it has released into the atmosphere, Europe’s contribution has risen. Whatever you think of President Donald Trump’s removing the United States from the... Read more »

New report finds some polar bear populations are not declining

If we can put aside the emotional hysteria for a moment about how global warming is wiping out the polar bears, you might want to read this: Baffin Bay and Kane Basin polar bears not ‘declining’ concludes new report: The 2016 Scientific Working Group report on Baffin Bay and Kane Basin polar bears was released online without fanfare last...

The anti-science hype about the 2016 being the "hottest year"

Former Obama administration official decries the “politicalization” of science Despite the headlines about the Earth “sizzling” in the hottest year in 2016, this useful investigation points out that the increase… detected by NOAA was 0.01 degrees Celsius. In other words, one-hundredth of a degree – a figure well within the scientific method’s margin of error... Read more »
