King Coal is Dead. Long Live the King! — Science Matters

You’ve heard the pronouncements:  „Coal Is Dead and Oil Is Next.“  „Glasgow is the Death Knell for the Coal Industry“ (Boris Johnson).  „Coal is declining sharply, as financiers and insurance companies abandon the industry“ (Yale360) „Parties to accelerate efforts towards the phase-down of unabated coal power“ (COP26 agreement). The unspoken reality is the opposite:  Demonizing […]

Climate Lobby Crushed Debate — Science Matters

Tim Black writes at Spiked How the climate lobby crushed debate.  Excerpts in italics with my bolds and added images. Anyone who dissents from stringent climate policies will be branded an enemy of The Science. COP26 is an extravaganza of ideological conformity. From the 30,000 delegates and heads of state sequestered in the ‘blue zone’ […]

‘Gaia’ scientist James Lovelock: I was ‘alarmist’ about climate change — Watts Up With That?

“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened,” Lovelock said.

Unmasking Biden’s Climate Shakedown

At Spectator, Real Jean Isaac explains How to End Biden’s Fake Climate Apocalypse.  Excerpts in italics with my bolds and images.

If there’s no pushback against the Left, we’ll see a dramatic drop in our standard of living.

With the wave of executive orders and legislation coming from the Biden administration, and the cultural antics of his woke supporters, Biden’s war on fossil fuels has received insufficient attention. Yet energy is the lifeblood of our economy, and making traditional energy sources vastly more expensive is the single most destructive aspect of Biden’s policies. If this country does not successfully mobilize against these policies, the vast majority will experience a dramatic drop in their standard of living.

mrz012921dbp20210129124515Supposedly the assault on fossil fuels — via regulation; cancellation of pipelines; concocting a huge, wholly imaginary “social cost of carbon”; taxes; and solar and wind mandates — is necessary to save…

Climate Change: What’s Real and What’s Artificial?

Claim 7. Temperatures have risen faster in recent years than ever before.

Truth: Remember that there is no such thing as a global temperature. It is the average of all of the reporting stations all over the world. The rapid rise in temperatures in the 1990s directly coincides with a decrease in the number of Siberian weather stations reporting due to the break-up of the Soviet Union.

Additionally, the “hottest year on record”, 1998, was an El Nino year so it was naturally hotter than the years just before and after. Another “cause” of rising average global temperatures is the urban heat island effect. Cities are hotter than rural areas. Many of the reporting stations that were once in undeveloped rural areas have experienced either suburban or urban development, or the stations have been moved to more urban settings. It is well documented that some have been, seemingly intentionally, relocated near or at heat sources such as paved parking lots and air conditioners.

One reason for relocation near buildings or other structures could be that new automatic-reporting equipment needs to be connected by cable. Rather than dig up parking lots or roads to install units in a grassy or protected area, many have opted to locate them where they can be directly connected without involving costly excavation, although such sites do not meet the stated requirements. Instead of excluding data from stations that are poorly situated, a convoluted mathematical algorithm (scheme) is used to “correct” it to presumed pre-industrial levels. See illustrations below.

The New Pause lengthens by two months to 6 years — Watts Up With That?

The miniature La Niña that has recently ended is now working its magic on lower-troposphere temperatures. The UAH monthly global mean lower-troposphere anomalies for April 2021 show a further drop, lengthening the New Pause by two months, from 5 years 10 months last month to 6 years this month.

The Good News On Climate — NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood     As I watch the snow blow past my window, it’s hard not to scoff at the idea of a ‘climate emergency’. However, I’m probably in a minority. The idea that we are currently experiencing a dangerous deterioration in our weather has been pushed so hard, and for so long, that […]

History of Climate and Overpopulation Alarms

For a great history of Climate Change and Population Control Alarms watch this video from realclimatescience.com and Steve Goddard’s Youtube channel by Tony Heller.  A little long but well worth watching.  All scares are politics, not science. The aim is socialist/communist control – control of population, economy, politics, every facet of your life.

FACTS:

  • The world is still not overpopulated.
  • Hunger is more about politics than scarcity. Modern agriculture can feed everyone.
  • The climate is always changing, but it is not dangerous. Warm is healthier than cold.
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is plant food, and why earth is not one giant ball of ice.
  • Water vapor is a far stronger greenhouse gas than CO2.
  • Most of the greenhouse effect occurred in the distant past with an almost opaque blanket preventing heat loss to space. Any further increase in CO2 will have little to no effect.
  • Deserts and jungles are greening. Crop yields have increased 15 to 20% on average.
  • The oceans are not rising, except for 7 inches a century since the little Ice Age.
  • Ocean acidification is a myth. Oceans are buffered to maintain alkaline pH, not acid.
  • Storms, droughts, floods are not increasing in intensity or frequency.
  • Polar bears and other wildlife are thriving.

Check out my book Perverted Truth Exposed: How Progressive Philosophy has Corrupted Science on Amazon, and earlier posts here on this subject. The book covers some of the basic areas where science has been corrupted or replaced by philosophy disguised as science. The major scientific areas covered are Darwinian Evolution, Origin of Life Theories, Cosmology, Quantum Mechanics as the heart of Particle Physics, and the Climate Change debate.  I present facts and logic to make the point that these areas, regardless of the merit of the theories, are actually based on philosophy, not science, that fits an atheistic, anti-human, progressive political agenda.
