Climate Observations and Comments

Here I am. I'm 75 years old. As I write we are in the throes of a Covid crisis that has shut our economy down; global warming alarmists are starting their shrill cries again; the natives are holding government and business hostage on every project conceived in Canada; I'm being villanized because apparently my skin color came with a tendency...

Any organized collection of human beings needs a narrative. This is the "theme song" that defines the character of the association and from that definition spins out the rules and regulations that will be used to control how we behave regarding it. A country is a culmination of many associations that covers a wide geographic area and represents...

Take a look at bullet #21 in this marker piece debunking C02 warming by showing Earth responds to the Sun. ie. "the climate we experience today was initiated by changes in the Sun cycle 85 years ago. The delay in expressing those changes as a "warming or cooling" of our climate is due to a buffering effect by the...

We're all fixated on Carbon Dioxide on our Earth. We have given it magical powers of heat capture, retention and throwback radiation into the hard surfaces that expel it during our dark hours. We ignore the fact that it is a trace gas (.04%), that it's absorption range in not in the bandwidths produced by a "warm" Earth, that...

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...

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!

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...

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...

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...

About 20000 years ago our oceans were 140 meters lower than they are today. Our homo sapiens ancestors (who had appeared 50000 years before this stage) were using the low seas and land bridges to travel away from their core areas located in Africa into whole new continents and into opening new northern lands. They really didn't think twice...
