The problem with predicting doom is, sooner or later people are going to notice the lack of doom. One reason the rhetoric has become so overheated is that the climate-change activists increasingly lack a scientific basis for their most exaggerated claims. As physicist Gordon Fulks of the Cascade Policy Institute puts it: “CO2 is said… Continue reading Climate change – the science is firm, and politics is weak

Arctic Ice Loss being offset by Antarctic?
I stumbled across this today. Taking all the world’s sea ice together, then – as opposed to focusing exclusively on the Arctic – the picture is far less gloomy than most media outlets would have you believe. [Gee, who knew? S1] Generally the world has between 15 and 23 million square km of the stuff:… Continue reading Arctic Ice Loss being offset by Antarctic?
Evidence of the Tide Turning on Climate Change (or is that sea level dropping, it’s hard to tell)
Bill Gates is now pointing out that spending money on climate change could end up taking money from real, immediate causes like health. Gates, the Microsoft Corp co-founder whose $34 billion (21 billion pounds) foundation is fighting malaria, AIDS, tuberculosis and other diseases in developing countries, expressed concern about the amount of spending pledged at… Continue reading Evidence of the Tide Turning on Climate Change (or is that sea level dropping, it’s hard to tell)
I was right – It’s too late to prevent climate change
I have been proven right – I previously pointed out that the rate of Arctic ice melt suggested that we were not even close to avoiding climate change, and no lesser a leftist authority than Robert Fisk agrees. Forecasts had projected a complete loss of ocean ice during summer months by 2040, but evidence now… Continue reading I was right – It’s too late to prevent climate change
Misrepresentation from Whom?
NRT gets a bit upset. Last year, the Heartland Institute (a US climate-change denial thinktank) published a list of 500 scientists they say disagree with the central theses of anthropogenic global warming (that the climate is changing and that it’s our fault). Unfortunately, but perhaps as should be expected from an organisation which takes money… Continue reading Misrepresentation from Whom?
