    WHILE waiting for the runners and riders in the Great General Election Derby to be finally declared, I have been to some renewable energy and climate change events. First was one with Tortoise Media, where it became apparent rather early on that people do not appreciate that electricity is only about 20 per cent of […]

  • The Pain and Pointlessness of the Paris Accord

    The reality is that Europe, the US, and Australia, or indeed any other nation outside India and China, cannot really prevent an increase in global carbon dioxide emissions – they can only delay the IPCC-predicted Climatageddon, and surely the IPCC knows this.  Many aspects of global warming’s alleged “settled science” remain in dispute but, for the sake of […]

  • Climate Politics Are Dividing Us, Because That’s The Way The Alarmists Want It

    In Western nations, climate hysteria is emerging as the new culture war — but its outcome is far from certain. A CNN producer recently wrote an opinion piece headlined “Climate politics are tearing the West apart.” He got it about half right. They are tearing us apart but not for the reasons he thinks. Johan […]

  • The Road to a Carbon-Lite Future (Watch Out for Unicorns)

    • Date: 13/11/19
    • Andrew Montford, The Conservative Woman

    ON Monday, Michael Kelly, emeritus professor of engineering at Cambridge University, outlined the challenges – bordering on the absurd – that plans to decarbonise the economy will bring for society. His gambit was that an abundance of energy has brought about a huge improvement in the state of humankind, with poverty, hunger, illiteracy, pollution and […]

  • Everything You Hear About Billion-Dollar Disasters Is Wrong

    • Date: 10/11/19
    • Roger Pielke Jr., Forbes

    The billion-dollar disaster time series should provide us a lesson on how easy it is to promote a simple message that fits a particular narrative but which is completely misleading and even outright wrong.  The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) counts the number of disasters in the United States that result in losses of […]

  • Prof Mickey Mouse & 11,000 MeToo Scientists Say “Panic Now”

    • Jo Nova

    Looking over the 11,000 signatories from scientists declaring a climate emergency, I found a certain Professor Micky Mouse, Institute for Blind, Namibia. It seems as much quality control has gone into this survey as in climate science. Who remembers that 15,000 scientists signed some climate declaration in 2017? The same Prof Ripple, and Bioscience probably hope you don’t, […]

  • New Climate Models: Even More Wrong

    • Date: 06/11/19
    • Paul Matthews, Climate Scepticism

    The IPCC AR5 Report included this diagram, showing that climate models exaggerate recent warming: If you want to find it, it’s figure 11.25, also repeated in the Technical Summary as figure TS-14. The issue is also discussed in box TS3: “However, an analysis of the full suite of CMIP5 historical simulations (augmented for the period 2006–2012 […]

  • October 2019 ‘Climate Crisis’ Update

    • Date: 02/11/19
    • Climate Scepticism

    Nothing about the British weather this year lends credibility to the Met Office’s and other’s insistence that we should be alarmed by our changing climate. Following on from the September Climate Crisis Update, one month later and it’s even worse than we thought. Whereas September in the UK, although only the 24th warmest, was still in […]
