A Litigious Climate Threatens Science

Litigation is what happens when scientists depart from a search for what is true or what is closer to reality (with mutual respect to other scientists who may disagree with them) to pursue political expediency in order to get their way.

“I’ve worked alongside climate researchers for decades. Almost all of them are ethical, dedicated to science and not particularly political. But some leading figures and organizations in this community are weakening the norms that make science robust. A lawsuit filed in September and recently made public is a case in point.” click here

Introducing the Tropospheric Transient Climate Response Index

“Christy and UAH’s Dr. Richard McNider created a new index: the Tropospheric Transient Climate Response, which is based on the bulk atmosphere. That is a more representative quantity for any impact of increased greenhouse gases.” click here

Satellite Temperatures Consistent Since the Early 1990s

“University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists John Christy and Richard McNider found that by removing the climate effects of volcanic eruptions early on in the satellite temperature record it showed virtually no change in the rate of warming since the early 1990s.” click here
