Alarming Climate Model Predictions are Complete Nonsense, Speculations at Best

New studies reported by CNN (here) are simply off-target. Why? Because they are based on unreliable climate models that rely on representations, not physics. Consider the graph below where the speculations of over 100 model runs are compared to actual temperature measurements.

Yes Climates Change; Man-made Global Warming Climate Crisis? No.

“Greens are inventing elaborate fantasies of shadowy right wing conspiracies to explain President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Treaty – but still refuse to consider the possibility they are wrong about global warming.” click here

Top Polluters Contribute $0 to Global Green Climate Fund?

“The United States contributed $1 billion to the global Green Climate Fund, but the world’s top polluters contributed nothing, David Asman reported.” click here

Santer et al Study Illustrates Weakness of Climate Science “Peer Review”

This statistical manipulation essentially done quickly in response to a misquote from a government administrator’s statement does not qualify in my view as peer-reviewed science regardless of who is listed as a coauthor.  It simply illustrates the political bias and favoritism given to certain points of view regardless of the science. For rebuttals refuting Santer et al click here and here.

Satellite temperature measurements do not support the recent claim of a “leveling off of warming” over the past two decades. Tropospheric warming trends over recent 20-year periods are always significantly larger (at the 10% level or better) than model estimates of 20-year trends arising from natural internal variability. Over the full 38-year period of the satellite record, the separation between observed warming and internal variability estimates is even clearer. In two out of three recent satellite datasets, the tropospheric warming from 1979 to 2016 is unprecedented relative to internally generated temperature trends on the 38-year timescale.

Kräftiger Rückgang der 2m-Temperaturen! “Global Warming“ Reality Check April 2017

“Die zeitversetzte globale Abkühlung durch La Niña setzt sich nach Februar und März auch im April 2017 vor allem bei den 2m-Temperaturen fort.”

First MIT climate program priority? Protect funding…

The MIT letter (here) objecting to the letter sent by Richard Lindzen and other scientists is a good example of what happens when government funding gets out of control. Programs such as MIT depend on it.  Dr. Lindzen has responded here.  MIT is hardly to blame as other institutions would take the very same action if major government funding depends on maintaining and advancing a particular point of view (dogma). Until science is once again the focus no meaningful progress will be made towards lasting solutions to real problems resulting from climate changes.
