Climate skeptics are arguing with a straw man

Climate skeptics are arguing with a straw man

By Bud Bromley | July 19, 2021 The problem that global warming skeptics have had for years is they are arguing a point where their opponents – that is the proponents of AGW or human-caused global warming – are using estimates of human CO2 emissions. But skeptics in rebuttal have no measurements of global human CO2 emission, obviously because it is buried in …

A New Law Of Climate Change

A New Law Of Climate Change

By Michael Kile | July 11, 2021 What a treat. I had not been so flummoxed since reading Alan Sokal’s  scholarly hoax over two decades ago: “Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity”. That the latest World Weather Attribution (WWA) post, Rapid attribution analysis of the extraordinary heatwave on the Pacific Coast of the US and Canada June 2021, has twenty-one …

Heat waves and hot air

Heat waves and hot air

by Judith Curry | July 15, 2021 Heat waves are the new polar bears, stoking alarm about climate change.  Climate scientists addressing this in the media are using misleading and/or inadequate approaches.  How should we approach assessing whether and how much manmade global warming has contributed to recent record breaking  temperatures?  Read on for some outside-the-box thinking on this. Much …

Carbon Dioxide and the Oceans

FOCUS Magazine: Australian Academy of technological sciences and engineering August, 2008 Should we try harder to understand the causes of natural climate change instead of assuming present climate change is man-made? By Lance Endersbee endersbee@optusnet.com.au In the past, sea temperatures were obtained from measurements by passing ships in the sea lanes of the world. It is only in the past …

Mathematical Proof of the Greenhouse Effect

by Bob Wentworth, Ph.D. (Applied Physics) | June 4, 2021 I am sometimes shocked by the number of climate change skeptics who are certain that the “Greenhouse Effect” (GHE) isn’t real. As a physicist, I’m as certain of the reality of the Greenhouse Effect as I am that 1 + 1 = 2. The GHE depends on physical principles that …
