The ranking Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, Raúl Grijalva of Arizona, has written to seven universities about seven researchers who harbor impure thoughts about climate change. One of the targets is Steven Hayward, a blogger, author and academic now at Pepperdine University (as well as an occasional contributor […]

  • Is NOAA Cooling The Past?

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    NOAA claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record, with global temperatures 1.24F above the 20thC average of 57.0F. In other words, 58.24F. This is all very strange, because back in 1997, they said global temperatures were 62.45F!   Now I am quite sure that temperatures have not really dropped by 4 degrees, or […]

    One of the biggest miscalculations that the global warming alarmists have made is claiming that global CO2 emissions must reach their peak by 2020 and then begin falling rapidly. If they don’t, there will be no chance of reaching the 2°C maximum warming target. Planetary catastrophe will ensue, the alarmists claim. British energy behemoth BP […]

  • East Antarctica Was ~3.5-4°C Warmer Than Today During Last Interglacial, New Study

    • The Hockey Schtick

    A new paper in Climate of the Past Discussions finds from high-resolution ice core data from East Antarctica that temperatures were 3.5-4°C warmer during the last interglacial (~130,000 years ago) than during the present interglacial (the past ~18,000 years). The IPCC claims warming of over 2°C (an arbitrary figure ‘plucked out of thin air’) will lead to […]
