Climate Change: Sucking the sun dry

We have a global agreement for dealing with Climate Change, and as I’m sure you are already aware, that agreement was (perhaps as expected) reached in Paris. As described in Mother Jones … officials from more than 190 countries swept aside monumental differences and agreed to an unprecedented global deal to tackle climate change. The historic accord, known as the Paris Agreement, includes emissions-slashing commitments from individual countries and promises to help poorer nations adapt to the damaging effects of […]

Climate Change: The Melting ice in Greenland

I’m going to ask just 3 questions about the Melting Ice due to Climate change … Exactly how much melting ice occurred in Greenland during the summer of 2015?

Claim: Mathematical discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer may change everything about the climate debate 2

Now don’t get excited, the above title comes from an Australian paper that is promoting a claim that is quite frankly BS, and this is not simply your ordinary BS, it has been dressed up to come across as credible … A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science. He has found that, while the underlying […]

No more Climate Change Deniers … with a stroke of a pen they are all gone

So the news is in fact about the news itself, or to be more precise, is about a decision that has been taken by Associated Press, they have decided that they will no longer deploy the term “skeptic” or “denier” to describe those that reject the current scientific consensus regarding manmade climate change. Their blog explains (Yes, AP have their own blog)  … We have reviewed our entry on global warming as part of our efforts to continually update the Stylebook […]
