Critique of WSJ article: Take Action Against Global Warming

by Joseph Bast, President, The Heartland Institute Mr. Herron, I appreciated the careful tone of your article in today’s Wall Street Journal, “Energy Agency Warns Governments to Take Action Against Global Warming.” Rather than repeating the discredited claims by environmentalists of a “consensus” on either the role of man-made emissions in causing climate change or …

Global Warming: You Call This Consensus?

by Joseph L. Bast, Heartland Institute –July 7, 2011 Contrary to what you read repeatedly in daily newspapers or hear on television, most scientists do not believe there is a “scientific consensus” that man-made climate change (often labeled anthropogenic global warming, or AGW) is or will be a catastrophe. Unfortunately, the old/mainstream/dead media will be …

The stable stationary value of the Earth’s global average atmospheric infrared optical thickness

by Ferenc Miskolczi Presented by Miklos Zagoni EGU2011 Vienna Download PDF Conclusions According to the simple-minded or ‘classic’ view of the greenhouse effect the global average greenhouse temperature change may be estimated by the direct application of the Beer-Lambert law moderated by local or regional scale weather phenomena (R. Pierrehumbert, A. Lacis, R. Spencer, R. …

Heartland Replies to ‘Science’

by Joe Bast, President, Heartland Institute The August 5 issue of Science,the venerable journal published by the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, contains an article by Sara Reardon that discusses the controversy over how climate change is presented in K-12 science classrooms.

Is Germany still capable of making rational decisions?

by Gordon J. Fulks Quem deus vult perere, dementat prius — Whom the gods would destroy, they first make insane. Germany’s precipitous decision to shut down eight nuclear power plants last March and the remainder by 2022 is curious coming from a German Chancellor with a PhD in physics. Under pressure from Greens who exploit …

Montana AG’s response to the Global Warming Petition

by Quentin Rhoades, Attorney for the Intervenors Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock’s response to the Atmospheric Trust Litigation (ATL) makes an interesting story. As detailed in our motion to intervene, Bullock crowed about his “commitment to the environment” while on the stump, bragging, for example, that he is a TerraPass member, and promising to invoke …

Does the Tropopause Limit Carbon Dioxide Heat Trapping?

by Richard J. Petschauer, June 10, 2011, Revised June 29, 2011 [This revision adds non-standard atmospheric lapse rates to the calculations.] Background Basic greenhouse theory shows that as the concentration of CO2 increases, a thinner atmosphere is required to allow the heat to radiate to outer space. This causes the typical emission altitude to increase …

Carbon warming too minor to be worth worrying about

by David Evans, PhD, Financial Post The debate about global warming has reached ridiculous proportions and is full of micro-thin half-truths and misunderstandings. I am a scientist who was on the carbon gravy train, understands the evidence, was once an alarmist, but am now a skeptic. Watching this issue unfold has been amusing but, lately, …

Improved Simple Climate Sensitivity Model

by Richard J. Petschauer (February 24, 2011) 1.  Summary of the Present Simple Model and Its Limitations The present simple climate model, used by most climate scientists to estimate climate sensitivity, is based on maintaining energy balance between the net solar incoming shortwave solar radiation and the outgoing longwave radiation from the planet. Increased CO2 …

CO2 Cannot Cause Global Warming

Ferenc Miskolczi’s Saturated Greenhouse Effect Theory by Miklos Zagoni, SPPI, December 18, 2009 The Earth’s atmosphere differs in essence from that of Venus and Mars. Our atmosphere is not totally cloud-covered, as is Venus: globally, about 40% of the sky is always clear. Also we have huge ocean surfaces that serve as a practically unlimited …

James Hansen: Singing in the Rain

by James Hansen, Singing in the Rain, 26 January 2011 In the past 2-3 weeks I received a deluge of nasty-language messages saying that I should be fired, deported, run over, etc.  Such a sudden burst of malice seems unlikely to be spontaneous.
