WHY IT MATTERS: Seth Borenstein is wrong about almost everything regarding Climate Change.

Excellent summary of the groupthink language and clickbait propaganda that is trotted out near verbatim, not only by AP journalist (eco-activist) Seth Borenstein, but by all who are swept up and infected with the “Climate Crisis Inc.” virus…

Watts Up With That?

Guest post by David Middleton

Is Seth Borenstein a journalist or a political activist?  This should matter to the Associated Press, but it clearly doesn’t.

When I opened up the Real Clear Energy webpage this morning, I found the usual mix of articles relevant to energy (~20%) and environmental nonsense (~80%), including  a particularly ignorant rant from Seth Borenstein.  When did energy and climate science become conflated? If climate science is actually science, shouldn’t it be on the Real Clear Science webpage?

Anyway, back to Seth Borenstein’s amazingly ignorant rant…

WHY IT MATTERS: Climate Change

WASHINGTON (AP) — WASHINGTON (AP) — THE ISSUE: It’s as if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump live on two entirely different Earths: one warming, one not.

Clinton says climate change “threatens us all,” while Trump tweets that global warming is “mythical” and repeatedly refers to…

A Major Malaise of Climatology is Pervasive in Science

An important, must read.

Watts Up With That?

Guest Opinion; Dr. Tim Ball

Scientists lost the scientific script somewhere in the 20th century. The major loss involved the fact that correlation is not cause and effect. It was lost for several reasons:

  • Failure to know or consistently apply scientific methods;
  • Lack of ethics as the end justifies the means;
  • Methods and process are not taught or emphasized;
  • People are more willing to bypass or ignore everything for funding;
  • Too many are willing to subjugate or exploit research for a political agenda;
  • Achieving results to advance a career is more important;
  • A person gets caught up in Groupthink as they go along to get along;
  • and scientists are unwilling to look to themselves to stop the rot.

All of these reasons were on display in the leaked emails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU).

An example of the problem of correlation occurred recently on TV screen when a…

But The Ice Is Getting Thicker, Mr Shukman!

‘Villains who twirl the moustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well camouflaged.’

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

As part of their propaganda drive for Paris, the BBC’s “Science” Editor has taken a fossil fuel powered trip to the Arctic, to call in on a fossil fuel powered Norwegian scientific expedition, which is measuring and monitoring Arctic ice.

The expedition ship has been escorted into the ice pack by an icebreaker, the KV Svalbard, which will no doubt help to break up the ice a little bit more!

Shukman reports:

Changes in the Arctic Ocean are so profound that the region is entering what amounts to “a new era”, according to Norwegian scientists.

A switch from a permanent cover of thick ice to a new state where thinner ice vanishes in the summer will have far-reaching implications, they say.

The Norwegian Polar Institute has been mounting an expedition to the Arctic Ocean during the year’s coldest months.

Scientists have to brave extreme temperatures…
