1. “America promotes the IPCC climate fiction, 1998”
    Typo in date of this heading.
    Thank you for the concise history of this debacle. I look forward to the next letter. I have been trying to get letters to the editor printed to help educate some but the Bozeman paper refuses to print my work.

      1. I live in Gardnerville, Nevada and would be happy to post one of your articles in the opinion page of our local paper – The Record Courier. Limit is around 400 words.

        1. If Dr. Ed will send you my e-mail you can contact me and I will send you a sample to see if you approve. Thank you for the offer.

    1. Everything was besutifuly put, until the name “Trump” was called in. No need for that idiot, science is all we need. Climate alarmism is a fraud, and so Is Trump.

      1. Dear Luis,
        Do you honestly think we can effectively promote climate truth to the public without political support?

        We can talk about climate all day long but if we want to promote climate truth to the public, we are going to need all the political help we can get.

        Like him or not, Trump happens to be the most important ally we have in our effort to promote climate truth.

        Politics is not about who we like or don’t like. Politics is about working with people who share our common goal (even if we don’t like them).

        1. Hello Ed

          I guess fundamentally I support a philosophy from right of centre and believe that mankind will be best served by this approach. While we should be sympathetic to the rest of the natural world this should be in balance with progress. I feel AGW supporters are probably being misled.

          I have two questions that I would like your view on.
          1. I have seen a temperature record that shows over the last 500,000 years, temperature has risen sharply every 100,000 years and then falls to previous levels. We appear to be near the point where temperature having nearly peaked would begin to fall. How can the current rise be distinguished between natural and man caused?

          2. I have also seen a graph showing CO2 concentration rise against temperature. It is claimed that this demonstrates CO2 is causing the temperature rise. But I fail to understand why it could not be the other way round. Is there any evidence of cause and effect?

          I have read much of your recent blog and recognise my questions are not in the same league intellectually but I would feel more secure in my conviction that the current decision makers are being misinformed if my instinct is right.

        2. Dear Patrick,

          Thank you for your questions.

          The temperature record for the last 500,000 years shows a 100,000 year cycle. Each cycle includes warm periods of about 12,000 years and the remainder is an ice age. Our present warm period has lasted about 12,000 years. If the 100,000 year cycle repeats itself, the next 88,000 year ice age may be humanities next concern.

          A plot of the temperature for the last 12,000 years shows periods where the temperature exceeded our present temperature. If we look at only temperature data, there is no way to distinguish a human-caused rise in temperature from a natural cause.

          When we have both temperature data and CO2 data, we find temperature always changes before CO2 changes. The only way to interpret these data is to conclude temperature changes cause CO2 changes, not vice-versa.

  2. Thank you for the short explanation. I had a discussion with a friend about climate change for the following reason: The High Court in the Netherlands have decided that to change the climate with 2 or 3 degrees C is a correct political goal as the Dutch government has submitted the Paris agreement.

    I asked him: In what way can one politically decide that climate has to change that amount of heat transfer? He referred to the democratic process in which that decision was taken and hence it was correct; I had to be coöperative.

    Almost the same arguments are in the mind of many people I know. One of the main reasons is that pollution and climate change, whatever that is, have interchanged by the supporters of the UN’s climate idea. CO2 is considered as a pollution threatening life, hence women will be scared. That is what the UN actually is doing.

    Also the UN is supporting economists who are developing a climate orientated economy. Asking people what CO2 is, is out of order. No one I know has any clue what CO2 is and I do neither.

    The dutch media has made it very difficult for people to use their brains and mind, because a known physicist Robert Dijkgraaf, who has a position at a famous US university, just argued on TV, by using his fantasy about climate, that we, w.r.t. CO2, are now in the position we were once with ozone layers. So, changing people’s mind is a very difficult task and that can’t be done by only pointing to scientific results.

    Also, as in the Netherlands president Trump is blamed for everything on earth, relying on Trump’s politics or decisions will not help. Dijkgraaf also blames president Trump, explicitly. Democrats are up, republicans are down. Don’t ask what president Trump has done to improve the income of people. The democrats will impeach him, which will have the same consequence in my opinion as being incorrectly judged as a criminal. Once judged, always judged.

    By the way, I don’t support your president or the democrats. He is your president, not mine.

    P.S. I am interested in science although I am not a scientist and became interested in the intertwining of science and politics which reminds me of the combination of religion and politics. And I am a former teacher in math but now painting is my hobby.

  3. Dr. Berry,
    Your comments are spot on. The climate alarmists have created a golden goose for climate scientists. They can get any and every study funded by governments as long they say it needed for climate change research.

    I believe that is why climate scientists go along with the IPCC even when they know that the IPCC is putting out bullshit. I believe that is why so many so-called “climate scientists” are willing to ignore the science not contradict the IPCC narrative.

    If a climate scientist is willing to question any IPCC narrative, they will loose their funding. Climate science is really climate politics.

  4. Excellent articles, I am pleased that someone with your qualifications is dismissing a theory that not only is false, but will impoverish the human race.

    When this ‘theory’ was first advanced in the 1990’s, my wife and I had two young daughters with one more on the way (my son). I was terrified for their future, so I examined the evidence as closely as I was able (I have a UK degree in dentistry and UK Advanced and Ordinary Levels in the three sciences).

    Ten minutes of research was all it took me to realise that we are being collectively lied to with the greatest deception since the 1930’s (Hitler & the Jews).

    Please keep up the good work I will Share this on my FB page!

    1. That was not a comment made by Khadafi but rather an interpretation of a speech made by Nikita Khruschev where he stated “We will bury you…” in 1956. And that is currently in question……

  6. Hi Ed, I am a reader of your site from Australia, we here are the testbed for cagw BS.

    At the moment on the east coast here in Australia we are in a major drought with relatively high temperatures and this natural weather event is being used by every major MSN outlet and nearly all our scientifically dumbed down politicians as PROOF that – yes an event proves the cause – and we need to blow up all our coal fired power stations, stop all coal exports, close down all industry and farms and commit to fans and mirrors (unreliables) for our electricity or that evil CO2 that is the cause of all the droughts and heatwaves will just get worse and ……bla bla bla….

    The climate porn here on a daily basis has to be seen to be believed Ed, idiot activists gluing themselves to streets, school kids going on strikes and scared witless, seemingly intelligent people completely losing all critical thinking skills….it just goes on.

    Cagw is defiantly a religion that has a powerful spell over those that drink the Kool-aid.
    Love your site anyway Ed. Merry Christmas.

    1. There’s a clear solution to all that ignorant madness Lachlan. Ignore the idiots gluing themselves to the streets, expel the kids leaving their classes and start confronting the reporters responsible for this epidemic of propaganda………..Whoever controls the media, controls the minds of the populace.

  7. It follows the same cyber censors, who search for, and suppress, those people in opposition to their ideology, are the same people, responsible for the deliberate manipulation of all public media outlets by presenting their calculated lies and propaganda, as factual Reality.

    No matter how easy it is to penetrate the falsehoods and recognize the fallacies spewing from these evil people, they know only a small minority will ever do so and they are deliberately targeting only those, who do not….or cannot…as they are the majority of the population.

    These same evil people seek to enhance the ignorance of those they wish to manipulate by the elimination of contrary ideas and information on all easily accessible media outlets, either by direct censorship, or by countering with targeted misinformation tuned to trigger the emotional conditioning of their targets.

    Simple smears often work, as the counter to them is often too complex for the targets to fathom. Tweaking emotion is what these evil people are all about, as they have spent decades preparing the majority to react exactly as they do. How? By the deliberate injection of irrational values into the populace, which are then unconsciously adopted by the majority, who never realize their nature…or the fact their emotion state is directly governed by them.

    If I were to tell you a fact, which contradicts your emotional conditioning and sense of Reality, would you not just immediately reject it. Would you ignore the immediate negative emotional reaction to this fact, or would you make an effort to check its validity? What if virtually all the sources you may use to check the “fact’s” validity…those easily at hand…, quickly deny the fact, or simply do not present any contextual information, which allows you to effectively check it at all? What if accepting the “fact” would put you at odds with the rest of your friends and associates, even with the clubs and organizations to which you belong?

    Even if the FACT is found to be TRUE, chances are good people will simply allow themselves to “forget” that it is…and return to a less agitated emotional state, where the fact no longer exists.

    Here is one possible example of a fact you have may been conditioned to reject:

    “Atmospheric CO2, Natural & Man Made, has absolutely nothing to do with Global Warming, or Climate Change, whatsoever.”

  8. Ed Berry wrote; “In 1990, IPCC’s First Assessment Report made global headlines. It claimed human CO2 caused global warming and warned the world must reduce its CO2 emissions by 60 percent immediately to save the planet”.

    H L Mencken had that all figured out when he wrote; “The desire to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it” — H L Mencken
