1) Climate data integrity, and the the accuracy of climate computer models

2) the Catholic Church and climate change

Final Thoughts

Our proposed national energy slogan is “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Additionally we should be using the term “unreliables” when speaking of renewables. Please pass these on. US citizens should make sure to get up-to-speed with what is on our PTCFacts.Info pages, as the PTC is still a political issue.


Please pass this information on to other open-minded, science-oriented people.

Thank you for your support.
