Wijngaarden and Happer show CO2 warming is insignificant

W.A. van Wijngaarden and Will Happer calculated the CO2 climate sensitivity – or the temperature increase when CO2 doubles – is 2.2 K for a fixed relative humidity. This means global warming caused by increased CO2 is insignificant. See the green line in their Figure 4, also shown above? The green line is the atmosphere…

I have taken the liberty to bold some of his sentences to make his message more clear. – Ed by Michael Crichton Caltech Michelin Lecture January 17, 2003…

Gene Cernan, last footprints on the moon, dies at 82

Although I never knew Eugene Cernan, I feel a special closeness to him. He is my generation. He fulfilled my childhood dream. With him, was Harrison Schmitt, geologist extraordinaire, my 1957 classmate at Caltech who taught me the difference between orthoclase and plagioclase in freshman geology class. – Ed Read more on Jack Schmitt’s website….

Sun, not CO2, causes climate change

Willie Soon, Ronan Connolly, and Michael Connolly published a peer-reviewed professional paper that shows our sun, not our carbon dioxide, causes climate change. They show atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations are insignificant to climate change. They used northern hemisphere data from 1880 to 2014.  You can read their whole 49-page paper (like I did) if you want…
