Can Humans Melt the Antarctic Icecap?

“My goal here is to show the enormous energy levels involved and how ridiculous it is to blame humans for any significant ice melt.“ – (Julius Sanks is an engineer and manager with experience developing weather forecasting systems and environmental satellites.)

Good read…

Watts Up With That?

Can we puny humans produce enough energy to melt the huge icecap? Some math helps.

Guest essay by Julius Sanks

When discussing climate with people who do not have technical backgrounds, I have learned much of the climate discussion is a foreign language to them.

Phrases like “Dalton minimum” or “Atlantic multidecadal oscillation” make their eyes glaze over. Once, after I explained what causes wind, the reply was, “my head hurts.” So, I no longer try to explain atmospheric science. Besides, I am an engineer, not a meteorologist. I have had better luck by sharing simple examples that let people reach conclusions on their own about human versus natural influence. Telling them I can show them the math if they want to see it adds credibility, because few, if any, alarmist publications intended for the general public include any math to support their claims. Describing…

MSM: Eleven Minute Friendly Interview with Climate Skeptic Ian Plimer

EXCELLENT! Rowan Dean and Ross Cameron, two absolute legends of Australian ‘mainstream’ media. Their top-rating show “Outsiders” attracting a huge audience of the forgotten silent-majority, conservative audience who appreciate the bi-weekly attention to the rational side of the climate debate – skepticism!

Nice one Ian, Sky, Ross and Rowan! Keep up the great work. A breath of fresh air!

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Sky News, one of Australia’s most popular news services, just gave climate skeptic and geologist Ian Plimer an honest opportunity to explain what is wrong with Australia’s climate obsessed energy policies.

It’s ‘not possible’ to have cheap, reliable energy and reduce emissions

Geologist Ian Plimer told The Outsiders that Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg had caught himself ‘between a rock and a hard place’ when it comes to the government’s energy policies. Mr Plimer said it wasn’t possible for the energy market to provide cheap and reliable energy, but also reduce emissions. It comes after several Liberal backbenchers formed a ginger group to promote the idea of the government subsidising a new coal fired power plant to be build on the existing Hazelwood power station.

Spot the Similarities; Oceans Clearly Drive Atmospheric Temperatures

“CO2 can’t and doesn’t warm water. The only mechanism by which CO2 can affect climate change is through the thermalization of LWIR between 13 and 18µ, that is it. Those wavelengths don’t penetrate or warm water.”

CO2 is Life

Imagine That, Temperatures Match Water Vapor NOT CO2

Two of the above graphics are of ocean temperatures, one if of atmospheric temperatures above the oceans. Can you tell the difference? The problem climate alarmists have is that the oceans are warming. To explain global warming, you have to explain ocean warming. We’ve pointed out umpteenth times, CO2 can’t and doesn’t warm water. The only mechanism by which CO2 can affect climate change is through the thermalization of LWIR between 13 and 18µ, that is it. Those wavelengths don’t penetrate or warm water.

The UK will spend trillions to reduce C02 emissions while the real offenders do little

Meanwhile, in the UK, 48,000 succumb to the record cold winter of 2017/18. https://climatism.wordpress.com/2018/04/08/runaway-global-warming-update-48000-brits-dead-after-worst-winter-in-42-years/
With that in mind, we really do live in a bizarre world when totally avoidable deaths of thousands of Brits due to ‘extreme’ cold are superseded by trillion pound virtue-signalling climate policies, passed without a blink, designed to prevent a supposed 1-2 degree warming by 2100!?

Welcome to the regrettable age of collective eco-madness.

Booker “celebrates” the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act!

There could be no better example of how those in the grip of groupthink tend to float ever further off into make-believe than a recent article by Claire Perry, our new Minister of State for Energy. She was celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act, the one which committed Britain, uniquely in the world, to an 80 per cent cut in our CO2 emissions by 2050 (once described by Nick Timothy, Theresa May’s former joint chief of staff as a “monstrous act of self-harm”).

Perry boasted that this “ground-breaking Act has been absolutely instrumental in advancing climate action globally over the past decade”, and is now inspiring other nations “to follow in our footsteps”. She went on to say that “trillions of pounds of private sector capital… will be needed to be deployed if we…

Kim Stanley Robinson: Empty Half the Earth to Save the Planet

“Climate Change” aka “Global Warming” has nothing to do with the ‘environment’. The environment is an emotional ruse conveniently used to justify deindustrialisation. Ergo, supposed population decrease.

h/t Nick Shaw – US Author Kim Stanley Robinson wants half the Earth to be depopulated, by somehow inducing rural people to move into cities.

Empty half the Earth of its humans. It’s the only way to save the planet

Kim Stanley Robinson

There are now twice as many people as 50 years ago. But, as EO Wilson has argued, they can all survive – in cities

Right now we are not succeeding. The Global Footprint Network estimates that we use up our annual supply of renewable resources by August every year, after which we are cutting into non-renewable supplies – in effect stealing from future generations. Eating the seed corn, they used to call it. At the same time we’re pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere at a rate that is…

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

As just reported here on WUWT, the National Academies of Science, of Engineering, and of Medicine recently stated that with Google funding, they are going to decide what is scientific “misinformation”. This is a terrifying possibility, because if Google decides your scientific claims are “misinformation”, your entire life’s work could easily disappear from public access and view. In response, I’ve sent the following email to all the NAS/NAE/NAM email addresses I could find … which is not many …

1988 Congressional climate change hearing: claims of accelerating sea level rise – failed

“It has now been 30 years since these dire climate change sea level rise acceleration warnings were presented at the 1988 Senate hearing on Global Climate Change with global CO2 emissions having increased by more than 60% during this period.”

ZERO acceleration since then. Prediction fail #xxxxxx

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Larry Hamlin

On June 23, 1988 the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a hearing addressing the Greenhouse Effect and Global Climate Change.

Among the presenters at this hearing was Dr. James Hansen, Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies who introduced his infamous and now debunked global surface temperature model results with future temperature projections under three different scenarios of CO2 emissions growth that grossly over exaggerated resulting projected global temperature increases.

clip_image002

Also testifying at the hearing was Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, senior scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund who presented claims that included projections of future sea level rise acceleration that would occur in the coming decades.

Specifically Dr. Oppenheimer claimed that:

“This increase in global temperature causes a concomitant rise in global sea level as ocean water expands and land ice melts.”

“Global mean temperature will likely rise at about 0.6 degrees Fahrenheit…
