NASA silenced Ferenc Miskolczi on his GHG research

by Dr Miklos Zagoni, Physicist, Budapest, Hungary, 31 Dec, 2009 In 2004, Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi published a paper “The greenhouse effect and the spectral decomposition of the clear-sky terrestrial radiation“, in the Quarterly Journal of the Hungarian Meteorological Service (Vol. 108, No. 4, October–December 2004, pp. 209–251.). The co-author of the article was his boss at NASA (Martin Mlynczak)….

Climate Science Blind Spot – Evaporation Cooling

by Richard J. Petschauer (January 18, 2011) 1. Background Climate science is certainly not settled considering how poorly the models handle latent heat transfer. This is a process involving heat loss on the surface from evaporation that is moved to a corresponding heat gain when condensation occurs during cloud formation, causing added heat to be…

Carbon Heat Trapping – A Critique

Carbon Heat Trapping a Bit Player in Global Warming by Richard J. Petschauer, Senior Member IEEE, Private Publication Abstract New calculations show that doubling of carbon dioxide (CO2) will increase average global temperature by only about 1F (degrees Fahrenheit) or 0.55C (degrees Centigrade), much less than the range of 2C to 4.5C estimated by the…

On the recovery from the Little Ice Age

by Syun-Ichi Akasofu 1. Introduction: The Little Ice Age (LIA) Significant data show the LIA certainly ended in about 1800-1850 and the recovery has continuously progressed to the present with superposed ‘fluctuations’ Let’s first review changes of temperature from about 1000 to the present. Figure 1(a) shows a typical example of tree-ring data from the…

Singer: Nature – not Human Activity – Rules the Climate

By S. Fred Singer, University of Virginia and SEPP(Presented at Erice Conference, Aug 2010) Summary Santer and sixteen coauthors [2008; hereafter S08] claim that observed temperature trends (in the tropical troposphere) are “consistent” with trends derived from General Circulation Models (GCM).  This result, if correct, would seem to support the validity of greenhouse (GH) models…

Temperature and CO2 History

600 Million Year History Fig. 1A. TOP: Global Temperature and Atmospheric CO2 over Geologic Time. Late Carboniferous to Early Permian time (315 mya — 270 mya) is the only time period in the last 600 million years when both atmospheric CO2 and temperatures were as low as they are today (Quaternary Period ).

The Scientific Method

by Dr. Ed Berry Introduction to the AGW problem Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is the hypothesis that human emissions of CO2 due to burning fossil fuels are causing dangerous global warming. AGW proponents claim AGW is so dangerous that we must drastically reduce our fossil fuel CO2 emissions in order to stop the disastrous effects…

Dominating Role Of Oceans In Climate Change

by Harrison Schmitt See Related Releases of February 22, July 2, 14, 19, and 24, 2010 The scientific rationale behind the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed massive intrusion into American life in the name of fighting climate change has no scientific or constitutional justification. This hard left excursion into socialism, fully supported by the Congressional Leadership…

Global Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

by Harrison Schmitt See Related Releases of February 22, July 2, and 14 2010. Given how little we actually know about climate, and particular the bogeyman called “carbon dioxide,” the President, the Environmental Protection Agency, Congress, and some ideological State governments and politically fearful corporations verge on choosing an extraordinarily dangerous path in attempting to…

Global Temperature In Climate Change

by Harrison Schmitt Ten thousand years of natural, post-Ice Age climate variability should give pause to those who maintain that current slow global warming and carbon dioxide increases result largely from human use of fossil fuels. Public confidence in that position also suffers from the exposure of fraudulent academic and bureaucratic behavior aimed at overriding…

The Central Role Of The Sun In Climate Change

by Harrison Schmitt Policy makers at the head of government in the United States and elsewhere apparently want to believe, and to have others believe, that human use of fossil fuels accelerates global warming.  They pursue this quest in order to impose ever greater and clearly unconstitutional control on the economy and personal liberty in…

Temperature and CO2 History

by Dr. Ed Berry Temperatures Let us look at temperatures. Here is a plot of the reconstructed temperatures and CO2 concentrations for the past 600 million years. We observe that CO2 is near its lowest concentration for the past 600 million years. Historically, CO2 concentration has been much higher than it is now. We know…

Why our glaciers are melting

by Dr. Ed Berry This chart shows how glaciers have been melting at a constant rate since about 1820. They began melting long before human carbon dioxide emissions became significant starting in about 1950. This raises these questions: How can we blame our carbon dioxide emissions for glacier melting when the glacier melting began about…

The Common Alarmist Logical Fallacy

by Dr. Ed Berry Here is an easy way to illustrate the common logical fallacy called “affirming the consequent. Consider the following logic statement: If Human CO2 causes global warming Then Human CO2 may cause glaciers to melt. (A implies B.) Glaciers are melting. Therefore, Human CO2 causes global warming. (B implies A.) It is…

Human CO2 emissions are irrelevant

by Dr. Ed Berry Tom Quirk shows natural variability of the climate is the prime cause of increasing CO2, not the emissions of CO2 from the use of fossil fuels. See: Energy & Environment, 20, 1-2, Jan 2009, pp 105-121 The IPCC core hypothesis is that human CO2 causes all the increase in atmospheric CO2…
