COP24 Climate Science Presentation

The French lead the way to end the global warming crusade?

“The French love a good riot, but the political backlash to the French government’s plans to increase carbon taxes on fuel could be a harbinger of what’s to come in countries committed to the global warming crusade.” click here

US national climate – Not so bad afterall.

“The BBC inevitably made a lot of propaganda out of the latest US National Climate Assessment report, which I have already shot holes in. But below is the report the climate scientists did not want to publish: click here

“ClimateGate” investigations revisited

“A true exoneration of someone accused of misconduct would involve transparent, thorough exchanges between the supporters and opponents of the accused. Then, at the conclusion of that process, there would be clear, verifiable proof that the charges were incorrect. That did not occur with respect to Mr. Mann.” click here

Taking a closer look at NCA4; Is RCP8.5 bad science fiction?

Volume I of NCA4 (Climate Science Special Report) features this nifty image of projected global temperatures (°F) for several Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios.  RCP2.6 is a drastic mitigation scenario, RCP4.5 is a strong mitigation scenario, RCP8.5 is bad science fiction and often described as “business as usual.”  All the really bad stuff happens in an RCP8.5 world.” click here

What does it mean to be good stewards of the climate?

“Historically there have been three broad ways of viewing the natural world. Primitive cultures viewed it as a personal entity with a mind of its own. Biblical cultures view it as the work of a Supreme creator. Modern secularists view it as a random, uncreated entity. Each view implies very different attitudes towards the environment. I argue that the functional worldview leads most easily to a coherent ethic of environmental protection, but also subordinates it to the interests of humans. It implies that nature has intrinsic, but not infinite, value. The secular view does not privilege human action, but neither does it establish a rationale for viewing nature as intrinsically valuable. I conclude by setting out some general conclusions about how these ideas might affect the way we approach climate policy, with specific reference to the Biblical doctrine of stewardship and the parable of the talents.” click here
