We're being told to eliminate our use of fossil fuels because they produce atmospheric carbon dioxide (C02) that progressively warms the Earth through a blanketing effect that holds expelled heat close to the Earth's surface and slowly raises its temperature. Classically the phenomenon is called the "greenhouse effect".

Physicists are a strange breed (they are going to cringe at this post). They are brilliant no doubt, but when it comes to explaining things to the rest of us who are not brilliant they really do a lousy job. A prime example is spectrum charts. The majority of spectrum charts show a y axis with some kind of intensity...

Man made C02 based global warming is all about the magical properties of "the little molecule that could ! " After first giving carbon dioxide the magical properties of being able to absorb and hold excessive heat energy released by the Earth at night climate scientists now claim that over time this will cause a global temperature rise of such...

A USGS publication "Cycles of Hurricane Landfalls on the Eastern United States Linked to Changes in Atlantic Sea-surface Temperatures" [https://pubs.usgs.gov/circ/1306/pdf/c1306_ch2_a.pdf] states: "AMO variability is related to variation in density-driven, global ocean circulation patterns that involve movement of warm equatorial surface waters...

This is an article published in CNN today. It is pure and utter bullshit (remember, I am a denier). It is tired, worn and inflammatory. It simply is not true. However, it does have value in that the authour has pretty much listed the complete spectrum of arguments and terror tactics being used by the alarmist movement today in...

1361 hits outer Atmosphere and spreads out around the "half sphere" to deliver 340 Watts/ m^2 to the Earth's atmosphere. ( 1361 / 4 = 340). Conversion of flat disc to a sphere)

"Quantum Physics, Radiant Chemistry, Thermodynamics, Photons, Quanta, Emissivity, Reflectance, Heat, Energy, Radiation, Irradiation, Electromagnetic waves, Frequency, Wavelength". All terms you are never going to hear on your local news report at five - ever. It's no wonder people can't make a decision on whether global warming is real or not. If...

It's Getting Hotter! If we keep up our bad habits bad things will happen! Do what I say and all will be O.K.! It's the hottest it's ever been! Heat wave over Europe! Drought! Melting! Flooding! Wind! Fire! Pestilence! Plague! For God's sake everyone.... Run!

This blog will be a collection of stories and references that relate to the formation of the global warming movement. In particular, I want to explore how it began and the motivations and actions of the characters (because they are just people) behind it all.

Want some advice? - don't try to understand global warming by researching it. I started this process months ago and the more I get into it the more I end up "going down the rabbit hole". There is so much information out there, so much argument for both sides, so much emotion and anger that it is almost impossible...

The Sun - Take a basketball and a black felt pen. Using the felt pen place a dot on the basketball. You have just created an effective visual representation of the relative size of our Sun versus the size of our Earth.

Never mind 60 year cycles. We're on the verge of a 350 year Grand Minimum. That's really going to set the Fox among the Pigeons! And we're preparing for hot times ahead. God help us all.

Humans only live a very short time. We only see short term changes in our environments. We are just a pinprick in the massive scheme of things and yet we think "our time" defines "all time". How arrogant and stupid, but typical for a species that has put itself forward as above the rules of Nature for over 200,000 years. ...

SEE THAT BIG YELLOW THING UP IN THE SKY? IT'S OUR EARTH'S FURNACE, AND OUR THERMOSTAT IS NOT CONSTANT. SOLAR HEAT IS COMMONLY MEASURED BY THE COUNTING OF SUN SPOTS, A VISUAL INDICATOR TO JUST HOW "ANGRY" THE SUN IS AT ANY GIVEN TIME. HOT PEAKS ARE CHARACTERIZED BY LOTS OF SUN SPOTS AND COLD TROUGHS ARE CHARACTERIZED BY AN ABSENCE OF SUN SPOTS....

If you start googling the word energy you'd be amazed at the information that will come back to you. Energy is a generic term that is progressively split into more specific forms depending on the discipline of science that you are working within. If you can get past the notions of "force, work, power, distance, amps, watts, newtons, ergs,...

When you stand on Earth and look up at the Sun it looks small. It's easy to overlook and even easier to have no conception of how important it is to the existence of our planet. We can't help it. We're human beings and we have a massive ego when it comes to everything we touch. We actually think it's...

OK guys, time to bear down and put this ridiculous Greenhouse Warming Theory to rest. Remember the Earth Balance chart shown below? You know, the one that shows Infrared Radiation coming back to Earth after running into a mass of Carbon Dioxide floating around in the Atmosphere. Well, it ain't true..

Is there a centrifugal effect? Why would it change? What could we expect if the earth sped up? Slowed down? Some theories say it happens, "throwing" our Earth’s water towards the poles or forces a retreat back to the equator - changing sea levels in those areas as they "overfill" or "underfill" the available spaces relative to the rotation....

In 1988 the IPCC was created. Since that time it has managed to thoroughly confuse the world through as series of Global Reports that progressively worsen as they predict the end of mankind due to our excessive consumption of petroleum products. This fear has spread and been manipulated by media, politician, special interest groups, charlatans, and...

Several months ago, I became interested in the Global Warming controversy and in doing so I realized that it wasn't enough to just say I was a "believer" or a "denier". I realized that I really knew nothing about the science that supports this philosophy mostly because I was putting my faith in the purveyors of mainstream media news to...

Way back when in the dark ages of the 1950's, I remember playing outside in the burning hot midsummer Sun in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I particularly remember whining about the heat during midday while finding some shade under the trees to cool off and escape the pounding sunshine (I still do that - hide I mean, not whine). Sitting under...

This blog is inspired by recent world hysteria over the fact that Brazil is once again burning the Amazon forest out from under us. Panic descriptions (from countries that long ago deforested their lands) are saying that the Amazon is the "lungs of the world" and their loss will lead to our eventual demise. It's not true. Just more alarmist...

The most popular of all statistics declares that "97% of climate scientists believe anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a significant problem." A colleague and climate change activist at Cornell recently claimed in a debate at Cornell, "that 97% number is not even debatable." He's right; it's complete garbage. Over 11,000 abstracts from papers...

I wish to discuss a particular period of time in our modern population's lifeline. I wish to detail some of the changes that occurred during this time that are unprecedented in history and then I wish to speculate on how they are affecting our attitudes towards global climate concerns today.

I just plain stole the following copy from the homepage of Pete Stevens, another blogger who writes on a wide variety of topics. I can't say it any better than he can. The scaremongering about Greenland Ice melting by 2050 is impossible. The scaremongering about it sliding off into the ocean is simply not happening and is pretty much...

PREMISE - The reason the energy output of the Sun is never constant is because it is surrounded by a number of major planets which are constantly moving around it in orbits that take different amounts of time to complete. Even though they are held in place by the Sun's gravitational pull each planet also pulls back against the...

Here's a thought. "In 1945 the World came to an end - and then restarted." The "flood" that destroyed that world began around the turn of the century and abated with the end of the Second World War. This "second flood" (multiple wars, depressions, dictatorships, genocides, nuclear bombs..) had destroyed the infrastructure of the pre 1945 world and...

I was watching a local politician seeking re-election the other day. He was expounding about the crisis we are facing as our climate deteriorates and laying out the actions he would take to correct the problem if only he was elected. Now, I've never known this person to be linked to the societal movement that is rabid about correcting...

In this blog I am going to look at the "greenhouse effect" - a thermodynamic phenomenon that is apparently choking our Earth under a blanket of heat trapping gases in our atmosphere. I start by looking at our "sky above" and then attempt to discuss the heating and cooling dynamics that play themselves out within our atmosphere. I warn...
