'Global Warming' has the Chills

Posted: 12/22/2008 - “If the issues weren’t so serious and the ramifications so profound, I would have to laugh at it,” said David Deming, a geology professor at the University of Oklahoma. “The mean global temperature, at least measured by satellite, is the same as it was in the year 1980. In the last couple of years, sea level has stopped rising, hurricane and cyclone activity in the Northern Hemisphere is at a 24-year low and sea ice globally is also the same as it was in 1980.” Speaking of rising sea levels, is Al Gore smarter than a fourth-grader? James O’Brien, emeritus professor at Florida State University who studies climate variability and the oceans, thinks not.

Global Cooling Brings Early White Christmas

Posted: 12/22/2008 - Winter officially arrives with Sunday’s solstice. But for many Americans, autumn 2008’s final days already feel like deepest, coldest January. Actually, the odds are rising that snow, ice and cold will grow increasingly common. As serious scientists repeatedly explain, global cooling is here. Solar quietude also may underlie global cooling. This year’s sunspots and solar radiation approach the minimum in the sun’s cycle, corresponding with lower Earth temperatures. Dr. Martin Hertzberg, a physical chemist and retired Navy meteorologist (writes) “As a scientist and lifelong liberal Democrat, I find the constant regurgitation of the anecdotal, fear-mongering clap-trap about human-caused global warming to be a disservice to science,” in Sept. 26’s USA Today.

Breathing Cycles In Earth's Upper Atmosphere Tied To Solar Wind Disturbances

Posted: 12/20/2008 - A new University of Colorado at Boulder study shows the periodic "breathing" of Earth's upper atmosphere that has long puzzled scientists is due in part to cyclic solar wind disturbances, a finding that should help engineers track satellites more accurately and improve forecasts for electronic communication disruptions.

NOAA Estimate 2008 will be 9th Warmest for the Globe - Don’t Buy It

Posted: 12/18/2008 - Though it doesn’t rank with the Bernie Madhoff’s Ponzi scheme, it is nonetheless criminal at a time when important decisions are about to be made that will affect our way of living and economic well-being. Not less than half a dozen peer reviewed papers have suggested the warming is exaggerated by up to 50%.

Global Cooling Continues

Posted: 12/18/2008 - The Pacific Decadal Oscillation switched from its warm mode (1977-1998) to its cool mode in 1999 and we’ve had global cooling since. We’re going to have three decades of global cooling, just like we've always had when this happens. CO2 has nothing to do with it.

Beware the Russian-Iranian Natural Gas Cartel

Posted: 12/17/2008 - On October 21 in Tehran, the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) agreed to form a cartel. Russia, Iran, and Qatar announced that they intend to form a yet-unnamed group to “coordinate gas policy.” The United States should create a global coalition of energy consumers to oppose oil and gas cartels and to bring market principles to the natural gas industry. The United States should open its vast natural gas resources on-and-offshore to further exploration and production and encourage its neighbors in Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean to do the same.
