Alarmist Queen Hayhoe Takedown By Friends Of Science

June 2, 2020 by

4

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ If Greta Thunberg is an alarmist princess then Katherine Hayhoe is the queen of climate alarmism, at least in the U.S. and Canada. She was the de facto spokesperson for the atrocious third National Climate Assessment. After that she started doing bogus “Here’s what is going to happen to you” […]

Red Team The Science Used For Radical Policies

May 17, 2020 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ While we are still in the middle of the corona crisis, supranational organizations of the UN are already busy in making top-down recovery plans they want to impose on national governments. All these experimental plans go for a utopic economy that they justify by doubtful scientific models being still under […]

USA Today Pushes Climate Panic

May 11, 2020 by

5

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ I recently described the all too often case where extreme computer modeling results feed the media into then feeding a public panic. A cascade of mindless fear. See my https://www.cfact.org/2020/04/27/tale-of-two-panics-covid-climate/. USA Today has now provided a perfect example of promoting model based panic. Here is their panicky title: “Unsuitable for […]

Models Reconsidered: There Is No Climate Emergency

February 13, 2020 by

9

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ If you look carefully it turns out that the apocalyptic Climate Emergency narrative is an empty shell. Just what the looming catastrophe looks like is never explained. As the saying goes, there is no there, there. But there is a good reason for this carefully crafted silence, namely there is […]

CLINTEL Manifesto Blasts Climate Scaremongering

January 30, 2020 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ There is NO climate emergency. Preaching doom and gloom is a crime against the young generation. These are the key points of a new manifesto from the Climate Intelligence Group or CLINTEL. CLINTEL is a rapidly growing international group, led by prominent scientists, that opposes the ill-founded attempts to scare […]

Can Climate Modelers Be Serious?

June 12, 2019 by

2

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Fear-mongers daily prophesy the end of the world as we know it if we do not convert our planet to wind and solar energy. Sensible folks realize that we would then be living again the life of the 19th century. The man-caused global warming scare may well be the best […]

New Satellite Data Confirm Real World Temperature Cooler Than Climate Models

May 3, 2019 by

3

From the team at CFACT ~ Newly published data gathered by NASA’s AIRS satellite confirm the Earth is warming more slowly than has been forecast by climate activists and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Data gathered from 2003 through 2017 confirm temperatures remained essentially flat from 2003 through 2015, finally rising […]

The National Climate Assessment’s Simple Hoax

December 3, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The recently released National Climate Assessment (NCA4) is a perfect example of what I have called the one-word hoax (Will versus Might). This hoax is to say that extreme events that “might” happen (but are extremely unlikely) “will” happen. NCA4 systematically pushes this simple hoax. Many analysts have pointed out […]

Sea Level Hijinks

July 21, 2018 by

3

By Craig Rucker ~ Is sea level rising dangerously? Climate campaigners say it every day. The inconvenient fact is that sea level has been rising at a tiny 1 to 3 millimeters per year, which it has been doing since before the industrial revolution with no significant acceleration. CFACT’s Climate Depot is the most effective […]

Speculation Versus Research In Climate Science

March 31, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Over the last few weeks several of my CFACT articles on climate science have collectively garnered over 4000 comments. This is the wide ranging climate science debate personified, with many sides represented. Anyone who claims that there is no scientific debate should read through these comments to see it in […]

Will Congress Finally Get Tough On Junk Science?

March 6, 2018 by

House hearing investigates a UN cancer agency accused of misusing U.S. taxpayer funds By Paul Driessen ~ A growing problem for modern industrialized Western societies is the legion of government agencies and unelected bureaucrats and allied nongovernmental organizations that seem impervious to transparency, accountability, or reform. Their expansive power often controls public perceptions and public […]

Climate Model GIGO

February 23, 2018 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Global warming campaigners live in a computer “matrix” of their own design. The media continually runs alarming reports about the climate.  The little known fact is that what is being reported is based on computer simulations derived from the most extreme projections of other computer simulations; none of this grounded in […]

Hansen’s Hiatus And The Falsification Of Climate Alarmism

January 24, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ James Hansen, one of the key originators of climate change alarmism, is back in the news. This time it is with a prediction that we may see a ten year “hiatus” in global warming. He says that alarmism is not affected. I agree with his prediction but not with his […]

Climate Change Attribution Games

January 10, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The recent extreme cold snap brought forth the usual claims from climate change alarmists that humans are causing bad weather. One is tempted to simply laugh this stuff off, but these attribution studies are proliferating. They are in fact the latest phase of alarmism, so they are worthy of serious […]

No CO2 Warming For The Last 40 Years?

January 3, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ It is very cold here in the Eastern US and the President is joking about the lack of global warming. More interesting by far is the fact that there appears to have been no CO2 induced warming in the last 40 years, which is as far back as the satellite […]

Proposed Principles For Use Of Speculative Models In Federal Rulemaking

December 28, 2017 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The purpose of this proposal is to begin to develop rules for the proper use of climate and other models in federal rulemaking. The use of wildly speculative and extreme modeling is spreading throughout the government, with potentially destructive consequences. This destructive growth needs to be opposed, but effective opposition […]

Climate Change Alarmism Is ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out,’ Retired NASA Physicist Says

November 23, 2017 by

3

By Kevin Mooney ~ HOUSTON—Unvalidated climate models that don’t correspond with physical data and the requirements of the scientific method contribute to unfounded climate alarmism, a retired NASA physicist said at the Heartland Institute’s recent America First Energy Conference. Since America’s national security depends in part on energy security, unsubstantiated claims about global warming that […]

Warmist Scientist Admits: Our Models Were Wrong

June 21, 2017 by

5

By Andrew Bolt ~ Even leading alarmist Ben Santer, lead author of a paper in Nature Geoscience, now admits the world isn’t warming as predicted by global warming models. Even Michael Mann, who produced the infamous hockey stick, has put his name to this paper. From the abstract: In the early twenty-first century, satellite-derived tropospheric warming […]

Media Censor New Study Debunking Climate Models

April 8, 2016 by

1

By Alatheia Larsen ~ Climate alarmists love flaunting “extreme” weather predictions to instill fear in the hearts of skeptics, but a new study deals yet another devastating blow to those predictions’ reliability. Researchers at Stockholm University in Sweden published a study in the journal Nature on April 6, 2016, which found that climate model predictions […]

Don’t Believe ‘Hottest Year’ Hype

March 16, 2016 by

3

NOAA, NASA pronouncements are mostly hot air By Larry Bell ~ NOAA and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) have histories of tweaking global data and abbreviating recorded timelines to make the past colder in order to have recent temperatures appear remarkably warmer. In January they rolled out a “hottest year ever” press briefing […]

Global Temperature Records Run Hot And Cold

October 20, 2015 by

2

But 2015 is by no means a record year By Larry Bell ~ Yes, global climate constantly changes . . . with contrasting short-term regional warming and cooling episodes invariably occurring simultaneously. Such developments happen for lots of reasons, all of which likely have nothing do with CO2 emissions. A September 24 Washington Post article […]
