COOL LOOK AT THE FUTURE

"In sum, when the issue of global warming is looked at dispassionately, both those who see it as a problem and those who do not might conclude it makes sense to wait before taking any expensive action, when normal discount rates - e.g. the cost of capital - are properly taken into account." Mont Pel...

POLITICIZATION OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND CO2

November 12, 2008, 7:31 am News

"The IPCC summaries for policy makers are merely a political interpretation of the IPCC's scientific reports. These reports do not take into consideration recent research showing that increasing atmospheric CO2 content has negligible affect on global climate. The proposed reductions in consumption o

 "Last month I witnessed something shocking. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, was giving a talk at the University of NSW. The talk was accompanied by a slide presentation, and the most important graph showed average global temperatures. For the past deca...

WHY DAVID BELLAMY SHUNNED BY BBC

November 6, 2008, 11:28 am News

"I’ve seen evidence, which I believe, that says there has not been a rise in global temperature since 1998, despite the increase in carbon dioxide being pumped into the atmosphere. This makes me think the global warmers are telling lies – carbon dioxide is not the driver. The idiot fringe have accus...

"It is transparently obvious that the greens sit squarely in the tradition of Romanticism. Like the romantics, they hate industry, love nature, idealise peasant life, they think capitalism is wicked, they think people in modern society lead depraved shallow lives and have forgotten the true value of...

All the coal-fired power stations close and new forms of energy miraculously appear, without the economy missing a beat. Believe that and you would probably buy a used Prius from [Australian Treasury Secretary Ken] Henry. Treasury was one of the last bastions of reason. It has now signed on as offic

ETS in Australia: " ..if the world can’t reach a consensus on something as relatively simple as free trade, how on earth will it be able to reach a consensus on something as complicated as climate change?" asks former senior adviser to ex-Leader of Australia's Liberal Party.              LINK

OCEAN/ATMOSPHERE OSCILLATIONS

It is now firmly established that increases in carbon dioxide have no detectable effect on the climate. Global temperatures are falling. There has been no change of temperature in New Zealand for at least 50 years, so that...

" The evidence continues to mount that the IPCC models are too sensitive, and therefore produce too much global warming. If climate sensitivity is indeed considerably less than the IPCC claims it to be, then increasing CO2 alone can not explain r...

In this 4-part link, Viscount Monckton, in an open letter to US presidential candidate Senator John McCain, treats the Republican candidate to a longish but very readable, and convincing lesson on the whole issue of "global warming" and emissions trading, which ought to be required reading for polit...

"The climate change problem is inherently one of making decisions over the very long term, under conditions of considerable uncertainty. Misrepresenting the problem as one where we can (with any degree of accuracy) set the global thermostat by limiting atmospheric CO2 to any particular level is no...

"At present, there seems only one way out of this dilemma: a major building programme for new nuclear power stations to provide a lower-carbon, energy-secure future, coupled with encouragement of a move to make road transport primarily electric. Even then, we have to accept that energy use will cont

"With so many scientific papers chasing so few pages in the most prestigious journals, the winners could be the ones most likely to oversell themselves—to trumpet dramatic or important results that later turn out to be false. This would produce a distorted picture of scientific knowledge, with less...

"The recent atmospheric global temperature anomalies of the Earth have been shown to consist of independent effects in different latitude bands.
