Watts Up With That?

heartland%20logo_1[1]

Via Press release:

December 7 events with CFACT and CEI include ‘Day of Examining the Data,’World Premiere of ‘Climate Hustle’ Documentary

The Heartland Institute – known globally as the leading think tank debunking global warming alarmism and junk science – is partnering with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), and other allied organizations to bring some of the world’s most esteemed climate scientists and policy experts to present the inconvenient, data-based truth to the United Nations’ COP 21 summit in Paris.

Heartland and its allies will be on the ground in Paris for COP 21 – what the global press is calling the last chance to convince the world’s governments to “solve” the global warming crisis. The scientists and policy experts Heartland, CFACT, CEI, and their allies are bringing to Paris for COP 21 will be there to prove with globally…

Looking for Safe, Affordable, CO2 Free Power? Then it’s Nukes or Nothing

…..still no doubts on your mind? Then you really need to see a shrink!

STOP THESE THINGS

chicken-little-poster It’s odourless, colourless, essential for life on Earth & we’re breathing it out right now, but it’s gotta be guilty of something, right?

****

Let’s assume (as STT does, for the sake of argument) that the global warming/climate change Chicken Littles are right: the sky really is falling and it’s all CO2’s fault.

So what the HELL are we doing pouring hundreds of billions of dollars into subsidies for wind power?

The Wind Power Fraud (in pictures): Part 1 – the South Australian Wind Farm Fiasco

The Wind Power Fraud (in pictures): Part 2 – The Whole Eastern Grid Debacle

And see our posts here and here.

STT has always thought that if man-made CO2 emissions really were destroying the planet, then sensible governments would have moved to build nuclear power plants from the moment the Chicken Littles started wailing about the heavens collapsing.

The Height Of Temperature Folly

No wonder Lomborg is not wanted at any of the Australian universities….too much of a logical thinker!!!

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

In her always interesting blog, Dr. Judith Curry [and Anthony at WUWTpoints to a very well-researched article by Bjorn Lomborg, peer-reviewed, entitled “Impact of Current Climate Proposals” (full text).

He has repeated the work that Tom Wigley did for the previous IPCC report. There is a simplified climate model called “MAGICC” which is used extensively by the IPCC. It can be set up to emulate the results of any of the climate models used by the IPCC, including their average results, by merely changing the MAGICC settings. This lets us figure out how much cooling we can expect from a variety of programs that promise to reduce CO2.

The abstract of the paper says (emphasis and formatting mine):

This article investigates the temperature reduction impact of major climate policy proposals implemented by 2030, using the standard MAGICC climate model. Even optimistically…

The Pause: October 2015 Update

I have seen the “Pause” today, when I stopped and looked at a coockaburra eating a little fish.

kenskingdom

UAH v6.0 data for October were released on today.  Here are updated graphs for various regions showing the furthest back one can go to show a zero or negative trend (less than +0.01C/ 100 years) in lower tropospheric temperatures.  The strongest El Nino since 1997-98 has struck down its  first victim!  There is now NO pause in the Northern Hemisphere data.  However, in some regions it has lengthened.  Note: The satellite record commences in December 1978.  The entire satellite record is 36 years and 11 months long.

[CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE]

Globe:

Zero trend oct 2015 globe

There has been zero trend for over half the record.

Northern Hemisphere:

It might be something I’m getting wrong in my calculations, but the Pause has suddenly disappeared.

The trend since December 1997 is +0.17C/ 100 years +/-0.1C.

Southern Hemisphere:

Zero trend oct 2015 SH

The Pause has extended by several months.  For more than half the record the Southern Hemisphere has zero trend.

Rapture Of The Deeps

….and the nail in the coffin is: poor or total lack of understanding of chemistry!

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

One of the reasons I lived so much of my life in the tropical South Pacific is because of the diving. Coral reefs are one of the most astounding ecosystems on the planet, boiling over with energy, movement, and color. I’ve spent hundreds and hundreds of hours in the water, both snorkeling and scuba, and most of my time was spent just marveling at the endless variety of the reef creatures large and small.

bg coral reefAs a result, I’ve had a long-time interest in the claimed effects that people say increased CO2 will have on the reefs. The addition of CO2 to the air slightly neutralizes the naturally alkaline sea water. [Note that while this is change in pH from increasing CO2 is usually called “acidification” of the ocean, that is just alarmist terminology. Since the additional CO2 is making the ocean more neutral, it cannot…

Climate Rationalization, Beliefs and Denialism

Amazing!!!!

Watts Up With That?

The integrity of our most important tool for understanding is being destroyed and it’s time to recognize and address it.

Guest essay by Walter Starck

integrity[1]
We humans have a remarkable ability to rationalize whatever benefits us personally or that we find satisfying emotionally. Climate change has found strong resonance with different interests for different reasons. For researcher it offers generous funding, recognition and personal importance. For the media it is dramatic stories. For politicians it’s green votes and popularity. For the financial sector it promises huge profits. For businesses there is the prospect of getting in early on booming growth plus the added bonus of attractive subsidies. For activists it affords attention and donations. For bureaucrats it’s authority and budgets. For everyone it also promises a hard to resist sense of importance and moral righteousness.

Of all the areas of human endeavor science has been uniquely successful in establishing the preeminence…

Letter: Warmists Watch Wrong Weather Warnings

One more bullet….

Watts Up With That?

Letter to the Editor |

Climateers keep trumpeting alarms that glaciers and ice sheets are melting, thus threatening land-based life with rising seas and supporting their dubious claims that Earth faces catastrophic global warming.

Life on earth cannot be extinguished by a sun-warmed atmosphere or retreating ice – sea levels merely rise steadily as land-based ice melts, animals and plants migrate and the slowly warming seas expel carbon dioxide. This allows the biosphere to thrive with more ice-free land in a benign, warmer, wetter, carbon-rich world.

The threats we should fear are the periodic violent eras of volcanism and the life-killing ice ages many of which start with massive snow/hail storms such as the one that suddenly extinguished the mammoths. This is why many ancient peoples celebrated the warmth of spring and worshipped the Sun God.

For too long the western world has been misled by alarmist claims that a…
