Yes Virginia, There is a Carbon Cycle

With all the talk of Peak Oil and anthropogenic global warming (AGW), many people often forget that the earth has a natural carbon cycle. The carbon that is under the crust doesn’t stay there forever. The carbon in the atmosphere doesn’t stay there forever. It is naturally recycled in a myriad of ways. Almost every […]

Not so permanent 400

What is in a number? There are many numbers that are marked as milestones, like every decade of your life (birthdays). Silver, gold, and diamond anniversaries are marked at 25, 50, and 75 years of marriage. The turning of the seasons and each year on the calendar are often noted as special events. I though a […]

Innovation and progress – a winning strategy

Innovation and progress – a winning strategy

The very paradoxical and antagonistic nature of our national economic and environmental policy continues. I hate to beat a dead horse, but if our national economic policy is grow, grow, grow and build, build, build, there are going to be environmental consequences. I’ve got news for economic planners: houses, strip malls, and parking lots require […]

Get with the program!

I bought an electric lawnmower. I wasn’t planning on it, but I have tried to use new and used gas mowers (4 push mowers and 2 riding lawnmowers) over the last couple of years and every single one of them has broken down! I had to give up on gas mowers. Now that I have […]

Getting better or worse?

Another year and more anthropogenic global warming (AGW) fears. This article recounts many of the climate-change-driven-records of 2015. I was more interested to see that an arctic mission to hype AGW got stuck in the ice. Great irony…and it is not the first time an expedition set out to qualitatively prove how much ice the […]

Faster Than You Can Imagine

I often generically mention “technological progress” as a reason why any climate model forecasts more than a couple of decades out are probably more fantasy than reality. Why am I so confident in this expectation? My eyes are open. I use my brain a little as well. It doesn’t take much thought or sight to acknowledge […]

What is really going to happen?

I went to the store the other day in order to buy a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL). As you probably know, I switched almost all of the lighting in my house over to LEDs. They are fantastic for many reasons, and I doubt I would ever go back. I only needed a compact fluorescent […]

Criminal Science

Did I fall asleep and wake up in the novel “1984”? I hope I am only dreaming. There has long been an effort to silence scientific disagreements over climate science. Some people have suggested Nuremburg-type trials for anyone who disagrees with the “climate consensus”. Others have suggested taking away the seal of approval from any […]

Is the hiatus back again?

Is the hiatus back again?

Not even two weeks ago I published “What Graphs Reveal“. The central point of which was that it looks bad when temperature reconstructions of the past century (or even farther back) keep changing. The most recent example is the “global warming hiatus” that occurred from 1998 through 2014. Many climatologists acknowledged that the average temperature […]

What graphs reveal

Because of the heavy dose of politics that is forced upon people whenever anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is discussed, there is always controversy. With battle lines being drawn, climate science could be one of the fields most ripe for irrational bias. It is unfortunate. The data could stand on its own. You might recall some skepticism […]
