Climate change is real. That's right. The climate has been changing since the earth was first created, and there is nothing we can do about it. Man's impact on the climate? Negligible. Man-made global warming? Nothing to be concerned about. The planet has been warmer, and when it has been warmer with people on board, it's been good for mankind. Meanwhile, political "remedies" taken are harmful to mankind. Is this Truth and Reason? Judge for yourself.

2015-11-20 Alarm over global warming 'based on nonsense' and 'irrational at best' — "Scientists from MIT and Princeton sharply criticized the political left's appropriation of climate data recently, noting that emotional assumptions and moral judgments about “mostly beneficial” natural phenomena are 'Orwellian' and 'irrational.' At a climate summit in Austin, Texas this week, MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen questioned the politicization of climate data that, he said, offers no evidence that should invite panic in rational people...."
2015-11-19 Whistleblowers Claim NOAA Rushed Contentious 'Pause' Buster Study Despite Reservations — "House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) opened another front in his war with federal climate researchers on Wednesday, saying a groundbreaking global warming study was 'rushed to publication' over the objections of numerous scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration...."
2015-11-04 Global Cooling: Decade long ice age predicted as sun 'hibernates' — "A team of European researchers have unveiled a scientific model showing that the Earth is likely to experience a 'mini ice age" from 2030 to 2040 as a result of decreased solar activity.... an 11-year cycle of solar activity the sun goes through would be responsible for a freeze, the like of which has not been experienced since the 1600s. From 1645 to 1715 global temperatures dropped due to low solar activity so much that the planet experienced a 70-year ice age known as Maunder Minimum which saw the River Thames in London completely frozen...."
2015-11-04 The Pause lengthens again — "As the faithful gather around their capering shamans in Paris for the New Superstition's annual festival of worship, the Pause lengthens yet again. One-third of Man's entire influence on climate since the Industrial Revolution has occurred since February 1997. Yet the 225 months since then show no global warming at all (Fig. 1). With this month's RSS temperature record, the Pause beats last month's record and now stands at 18 years 9 months...."
2015-11-03 Study finds Antarctic ice growing, countering earlier studies — "Snow that began piling up 10,000 years ago in Antarctica is adding enough ice to offset the increased losses due to thinning glaciers, according to a NASA study. The latest findings appear to challenge other studies including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2013 report, which found that Antarctica is overall losing land ice...."
2015-10-16 What I Learned about Climate Change: The Science is not Settled — "What is your position on the climate-change debate? What would it take to change your mind? If the answer is It would take a ton of evidence to change my mind, because my understanding is that the science is settled, and we need to get going on this important issue, that's what I thought, too. This is my story...."
2015-10-14 France's top weatherman sparks storm over book questioning climate change — "Every night, France's chief weatherman has told the nation how much wind, sun or rain they can expect the following day. Now Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly forecasts on France 2, has been taken off air after a more controversial announcement - criticising the world's top climate change experts. Mr Verdier claims in the book Climat Investigation (Climate Investigation) that leading climatologists and political leaders have 'taken the world hostage' with misleading data..."
2015-10-14 Obama took the wrong side on climate change says physicist Freeman Dyson — "Theoretical physicist and Democrat voter Freeman Dyson has expressed his disappointment with President Obama's stance on climate change. 'I'm 100 percent Democrat myself, and I like Obama. But he took the wrong side on this issue, and the Republicans took the right side.' Now retired, Dyson was a professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton between 1953 and 1994. Famed for his work in quantum electrodynamics and nuclear engineering, Dyson also worked on climate studies during his career...."
2015-10-12 Carbon Dioxide: The Good News — A report by "former IPCC delegate Dr Indur Goklany calls for a reassessment of carbon dioxide, which he says has many benefits for the natural world and for humankind. 'Carbon dioxide fertilises plants, and emissions from fossil fuels have already had a hugely beneficial effect on crops, increasing yields by at least 10-15%. This has not only been good for humankind but for the natural world too, because an acre of land that is not used for crops is an acre of land that is left for nature'.... Pointing to estimates that the current value of the carbon dioxide fertilisation effect on global crop production is about $140 billion a year, he notes that this additional production has helped reduce hunger and advance human well-being.... Almost without exception, the wild places of the Earth have become greener in recent decades, .largely as a direct result of carbon dioxide increases. In fact, it has been shown that carbon dioxide can increase plants’ water-use efficiency too, making them more resilient to drought, so that there is a double benefit in arid parts of the world.... 'Unlike the claims of future global warming disasters these benefits are firmly established and are being felt now. Yet despite this the media overlook the good news and the public remain in the dark. My report should begin to restore a little balance.'...." [Full Report in PDF Format]
2015-10-11 Secretive conference on 'Climate Change and the Law' aims to outlaw skeptical inquiry -- "We might think a proposal to an international conference of top judges - assembled in the highest courtroom in Britain - for a ruling to 'scotch' claims that challenge the 'consensus' on manmade global warming was odd enough to be worthy of front-page coverage.... The fact that it could be seriously proposed in the highest courtroom in the land that the law should now be used to help suppress any further debate on what has become one of the most contentious issues in the history of science (greeted with applause from the distinguished legal audience) speaks volumes about the curious psychological state to which the great global warming scare has reduced so many of the prominent figures who today exercise power and influence over the life of our Western societies...."
2015-10-07 Scientist who urged government to sue climate skeptics gets millions from taxpayers — A key signatory of a petition calling for government to sue companies that question climate change has pulled the letter from his institute's website amid revelations his family reaped $500,000 in salary and benefits last year from the government-funded organization.... Last year, tax records show that Shukla received a $333,000 salary and benefits from an organization he created called the 'The Institute of Global Environment and Society' – a group that gets 90 percent of its revenue from government grants. His wife also received $166,000 in compensation from the group over the same period.... The organization has been operating since 1991, and total payments from the group to the Shuklas since 2001 (the most recent year records are available) amount to $5.6 million, according to an analysis of old returns by the Free Beacon...."
2015-09-28 A new low in science: Criminalizing climate change skeptics — "Dismayed by what they see as a lack of progress on the implementation of climate policies that they support ... 20 scientists sent a letter to the White House calling for their political opponents to be investigated by the government.... The demand by Senator Whitehouse and the 20 climate scientists for legal persecution of people whose research on science and policy they disagree with represents a new low in the politicization of science. The role of these 20 scientists is particularly troubling. The consequence of this persecution ... is to make pariahs of scientists who are doing exactly what we expect of researchers: to critically evaluate evidence and publish that work in the scientific literature.... What these 20 scientists have done with their letter is the worst kind of irresponsible advocacy. Attempts by powerful people to silence other scientists, especially in this brutal fashion, is a recipe for stifling scientific progress and for making poor policies...."
2015-09-24 Radicals advising Pope Francis on Climate Change — "The Vatican relied on advisors who are the most extreme elements in the global warming debate. These climate advisors are so far out of the mainstream they even make some of their fellow climate activists cringe...The Vatican advisors can only be described as a brew of anti-capitalist, pro-population control advocates who allow no dissent and are way out of the mainstream of even the global warming establishment...."
2015-09-24 Approximately 66% of global surface temperature data consists of estimated values — "Overall, from 1880 to the present, approximately 66% of the temperature data in the adjusted GHCN temperature data consists of estimated values produced by adjustment models, while 34% of the data are raw values retained from direct measurements.... The estimates produced by NOAA for the GHNC data introduce a warming trend of approximately a quarter degree C per century.... Approximately 7% of the raw data is discarded. If this data were included as-is in the final record it would likely introduce a warming component from 1880 to 1950, followed by a cooling component from 1951 to the present...."
2015-08-10 Shocking Study Reveals Melting Sea Ice Near North Pole ... in 1818 — "No matter how hard you try, you can’t escape the constant media barrage of dire climate change warnings.... Not only do they say warming is unquestionably happening, they tell us climate scientists are convinced it's going to destroy us all.... Only the most selfish among us can ignore the scientific facts, we're told. The debate is over.... but the idea reducing our carbon dioxide emissions, and by a relatively insignificant amount compared to global emissions, will have any real influence on global temperature is pure, unadulterated fantasy. Not only is there absolutely no evidence—none, zero, zilch—cutting human-produced carbon-dioxide emissions will actually reverse global temperature, the claims made about global warming are greatly exaggerated at best and deliberately misleading and dangerous at worst...."
2015-05-04 25 Years of Predicting the Global Warming 'Tipping Point' — "For decades now, those concerned about global warming have been predicting the so-called 'tipping point' — the point beyond which it’ll be too late to stave off catastrophic global warming. It seems like every year the 'tipping point' is close to being reached, and that the world must get rid of fossil fuels to save the planet. That is, until we've passed that deadline and the next such 'tipping point' is predicted...."
2015-04-22 Happy Earth Day 2015: The Earth is doing just fine, thank you — "Wednesday, April 22 is Earth Day. To hear the experts like Usher and Al Gore tell the story, the planet is in a miserable state. We're running out of our natural resources, we're overpopulating the globe and running out of room, the air that we breathe is becoming toxic, the oceans are rising and soon major coastal cities will be underwater, and the Earth is, of course, heating up, except when it is cooling down.
This is perhaps the single greatest misinformation campaign in world history...."
2015-04-22 In Honor of Earth Day — "In honor of Earth Day, Glenn Beck on Wednesday ruthlessly mocked a sling of climate change predictions that ended up not coming true.... Beck first reminded his audience that experts were warning of an impending ice age before they were warning about global warming, and Harvard biologist George Wald even warned in 1970 that civilization would end within 15 to 30 years unless immediate action was taken...."
2015-04-21 Global Warming and the Reasons We Do (or Don't) Believe Science — "... We're told over and over how 97 percent of climate scientists believe that humans are causing global warming, so therefore we should, too. Comedian-pundit John Oliver has said (only semi-jokingly) that it's misleading for climate change advocates to debate skeptics one-on-one, as it implies there is a 50-50 split on the issue. (Instead, Oliver says it should be 97 advocates against three skeptics.) But this misses the point. In sports – drawn-out playoff schedules aside – the championship isn't determined by who has the greatest percentage of fans rooting for it; it's determined by which team has the highest percentage of wins. Likewise, in science, what counts isn't the percentage of scientists who are supporting a theory, it's the theory's batting average when it comes to making true predictions...."
2015-03-15 Boston's coldest winter since 1872 — "Boston's miserable winter is now also its snowiest season going back to 1872.... The final 2.9 inches came in a snowstorm that was relatively tame after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February.... Forecasters note snow can still mount up this year. March 1993 had 38.9 inches, and March 1916 had 33."
2015-03-13 John Kerry Preaches on "Immorality" of Doubting "Climate Change" — "Donning the robes of High Priest of Science, Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a rousing sermon ... that presumed to speak for both Science and Religion on the supposed existential threat of anthropogenic (manmade) global warming, AGW.... The radical Heinz Family Foundation, largely controlled by John Kerry’s wife Teresa Heinz Kerry, is one of the major funders of the AGW alarmist movement.... It is the continued, obstinate use of the phony consensus meme by you and your AGW allies, Secretary Kerry, to intimidate and vilify all opposition, along with your attempts to use the fear generated by AGW alarmism to establish a tyrannical global climate regime that is truly immoral."
2015-03-12 The Science is Settled — "It's a familiar refrain used by those who want to control what you think - The science is settled.... The science is settled!! The globe is warming because of humans. Even though the temperature has not increased in 16 years, global warming is supposedly the most dangerous issue humans are facing.... When proponents declare that the science is settled, scientific discovery is exterminated. Science proves theories by actually trying to disprove them. Examples are actively searched for that negate a concept. Using the Scientific Method, experiments are conducted with the specific purpose to refute an hypothesis. Data is collected and examined. If these experiments fail, then the theory has actually been validated. Pseudoscience does just the opposite by looking only for confirmations of a theory and avoiding challenges. Welcome to the world of global warming.... Contrary evidence and data is considered criminal. Activists undermine anyone who exposes proof and facts debunking these theories, claiming they are deniers who hate science. Yet it is they who are shutting out true analysis and rejecting scientific discovery...."
2015-03-10 Once-in-a-Generation Event is Underway in Cape Code — "The historic winter of 2015 has left giant chunks of ice on the Cape Cod National Seashore.... WBZ-TV Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher says this could be a 'once-in-a-generation' event due to the extraordinary amount of ice on the Massachusetts Bay....There have been several remarkable images left from the record-setting winter, including the nearly frozen waves captured off the coast of Nantucket last month."
2015-03-08 Silencing Skeptics, Financing Alarmists — Edward Markey (D-MA), other senators and Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) recently sent letters to institutions that employ or support climate change researchers whose work questions claims that Earth and humanity face unprecedented manmade climate change catastrophes. The letters allege that the targeted researchers may have 'conflicts of interest' or may not have fully disclosed corporate funding sources... Conflicts of interest can indeed pose problems. However, it is clearly not only fossil fuel companies that have major financial or other interests in climate and air quality standards – nor only manmade climate change skeptics who can have conflicts and personal, financial or institutional interests in these issues. Renewable energy companies want to perpetuate the mandates, subsidies and climate disruption claims that keep them solvent. Insurance companies want to justify higher rates, to cover costs from allegedly rising seas and more frequent or intense storms. Government agencies seek bigger budgets, more personnel, more power and control, more money for grants to researchers and activist groups that promote their agendas and regulations, and limited oversight, transparency and accountability for their actions. Researchers and organizations funded by these entities naturally want the financing to continue. You would therefore expect that these members of Congress would send similar letters to researchers and institutions on the other side of this contentious climate controversy. But they did not, even though climate alarmism is embroiled in serious financial, scientific, ethical and conflict of interest disputes...."
2015-03-04 The Political Assault on Climate Skeptics — "Research in recent years has encouraged those of us who question the popular alarm over allegedly man-made global warming. Actually, the move from 'global warming' to 'climate change' indicated the silliness of this issue. The climate has been changing since the Earth was formed. This normal course is now taken to be evidence of doom. Individuals and organizations highly vested in disaster scenarios have relentlessly attacked scientists and others who do not share their beliefs. The attacks have taken a threatening turn. As to the science itself, it’s worth noting that all predictions of warming since the onset of the last warming episode of 1978-98—which is the only period that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) attempts to attribute to carbon-dioxide emissions—have greatly exceeded what has been observed. These observations support a much reduced and essentially harmless climate response to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide...."
2015-02-28 Cold enough for a lake ice airport — "Winter on New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee means ice fishing, hockey tournaments and, if the ice is strong enough, airplanes.... Dozens of pilots from all over the Northeast took advantage of a rare, sunny, storm-free Saturday to touch down on the frozen lake, the only ice runway in the lower 48 states approved by the Federal Aviation Administration...."
2015-02-28 Freezing temperatures and freezing rain hit Texas and Oklahoma — "An overnight storm that dumped freezing rain on parts of Texas and Oklahoma has made roads treacherously slick and forced the cancellation of hundreds of flights at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport...."
2015-02-24 Southeast slogs through rare winter storm as another arctic blast freezes northern US — "An arctic air mass passed down from Canada continues to plunge much of the U.S. into record-setting lows, continuing a punishing stretch that could result in temperatures settling 10 degrees below average for the month, forecasters say. Meanwhile, a sloppy salvo of snow, sleet and freezing rain continues to slash through the southeastern U.S., bringing travel to a halt and promising more winter weather this week.... A winter storm warning remained in effect for northeastern Texas and parts of Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and the Carolinas through Wednesday, and four to six inches could blanket the area by Thursday...."
2015-02-16 Deadly cold grips most of US as South hit with snow and ice — "Freezing cold temperatures hit most of the U.S. Monday as New England began digging out of its fourth winter storm in a month, while the mid-Atlantic region and parts of the south were hit with their own blast of snow and ice.... The Arctic cold front already had frozen the upper Midwest, with temperatures in Michigan plunging to minus-27 in the Upper Peninsula.... The National Weather Service said a low temperature of 3 degrees was recorded at 7:35 a.m. at Philadelphia International Airport. That's just under the record for the date of 2 degrees set way back in 1888.... New York City came close to breaking a 127-year-old record when the temperature in Central Park hit 3 degrees, just above the 1-degree record set in 1888, said Jeffrey Tongue, a National Weather Service meteorologist...." [So much for global warming. Oh yeah, it's now "Climate Change." Yes, the climate changes. Seems like 1888 was pretty darn cold, things warmed up some, and now we're back to as cold as 1888. There is NOTHING unusual about any recent (i.e. 100s of years) weather on earth. Par for the course.]
2015-02-12 Study: Global warming skeptics know more about climate science — "Are global warming skeptics simply ignorant about climate science? Not so, says a forthcoming paper in the journal Advances in Political Psychology by Yale Professor Dan Kahan. He finds that skeptics score about the same (in fact slightly better) on climate science questions. The study asked 2,000 respondents nine questions about where they thought scientists stand on climate science. On average, skeptics got about 4.5 questions correct, whereas manmade warming believers got about 4 questions right.... The study’s author, Kahan, also says that the global warming debate has become so politically polarized that people pick their side based on politics rather than what they know about science... Kahan says that if global warming believers really want to convince people, they should stop demonizing and talking down to their opponents, and instead focus on explaining the science...."
2015-02-10 UN official reveals real reason behind warming scare — "The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man's stewardship of the environment. But we know that's not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this. At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism...."
2015-01-28 Climate Change Deniers are Completely Insane — Blogger Matt Walsh responds to a letter from a climate alarmist asking Matt to "prove" he's "controversial" and a "logical" person by calling "climate deniers" to task... A really fun read, Matt makes the letter writer look almost as silly as all the failed climate models.
2015-01-08 Wintry weather around US brings fatalities, school closings —
"Dangerously cold air has sent temperatures plummeting into the single digits around the U.S., with wind chills driving them even lower. Throw in the snow some areas are getting and you've got a bone chilling mix that may also be super messy.... School districts from the South to the Northeast and Midwest delayed the start of classes or canceled school altogether. Wind-chill readings were at or below zero in such places as Alabama and North Carolina, along with a chunk of the Midwest, the Plains and the Northeast. The wind chill was minus-40 in Saranac Lake in upstate New York on Thursday morning. In northwest Georgia, schools in Catoosa County had a two-hour delayed start on Thursday because of temperatures expected to top out at 27 degrees and dip as low as minus 2 degrees with wind chills...."
2015-01-07 History shows how human behavior changes along with climate — "...Something about which everyone can agree is that of course the climate is changing — it always is. And if climate Cassandras are as conscientious as they claim to be about weighing evidence, how do they accommodate historical evidence of enormously consequential episodes of climate change not produced by human activity?.... In the Medieval Warm Period (MWP), from the end of the ninth century to the beginning of the 14th, the Northern Hemisphere was warmer than at any time in the last 8,000 years — for reasons concerning which there is no consensus.... Then, near the end of the MWP, came the severe winters of 1309-1312, when polar bears could walk from Greenland to Iceland on pack ice. In 1315 there was rain for perhaps 155 consecutive days, washing away topsoil. Upwards of half the arable land in much of Europe was gone; cannibalism arrived as parents ate children. Corpses hanging from gallows were devoured.... Human behavior did not cause this climate change. Instead, climate warming caused behavioral change (10 million mouths to feed became 30 million). Then climate cooling caused social changes (rebelliousness and bellicosity) that amplified the consequences of climate, a pattern repeated four centuries later...."
2015-01-03 The Great Pause lengthens again — "Since October 1996 there has been no global warming at all. This month's RSS temperature plot pushes up the period without any global warming from 18 years 2 months to 18 years 3 months...."
2015-01-02 Climate And Truth: A Tale Of Immorality? — "The most recent aberration of climate science is the apparent cherry picking of ocean temperature data by government scientists, Richard Feely and Christopher Sabine. The objective is not to determine what is happening, but why it is happening, and then link it to a human cause. This, cart before the horse approach, was the raison d’etre of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from the start.... There are lies of commission and omission, and both fit the political and PR practices of IPCC climate science...."
2015-01-01 Snow in Palermo, Sicily — "In Rome, arctic-inspired winds brought temperatures as low as minus eight degrees Celsius. Palermo woke up under a white blanket. Dozens of cars are trapped in snows towards Tripoli.... Meanwhile in Norway, they had to remove snow from below the chairlifts because there was too much snow. One worker said they've had more snow in the past two days than they've had in the last two years combined. 'These are the same conditions that were experienced during the Dalton and Maunder Minimums'...."
2015-01-01 Botched environmental predictions for 2015 — "You've heard the warnings: Global warming could doom humanity. Overpopulation and deforestation will destroy the planet. We’re going to run out of energy. It isn't happening right now, experts say, but it could happen in a few decades. Yet, decades ago, experts warned that many catastrophes would happen now – by the year 2015. Yet they have not. FoxNews.com found five predictions that went astray...."
"It just so happens that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion. I don't think people have noticed that, but it's got all the sort of terms that religions use … The greens use guilt. That just shows how religious greens are. You can't win people round by saying they are guilty for putting (carbon dioxide) in the air."
