2014 HGS Presentation: “Climate Change: Facts and Fictions”

Thought Piece Not much has changed since Dr. Rusty Riese's May 2014 Presentation in front of Houston Geological Society. The alarmists like Dr. Michael Mann are using the same old arguments, but after 3 more years, they seem even less fact-based. Frankly, I would love to have Dr. Mann do a 45 minute presentation about the [...]

Climate scientists admit they were wrong on climate change effects

Thought Piece A humble scientist is a wise scientist. Anyone making predictions should heed the words of the great philosopher Casey Stengel: "Don't make prediction especially about the future." This might be a great time to have thorough discussion on climate change, without rancor or name-calling. Let's admit that there are many, many people in the [...]

Former Obama EPA Head Criticizes EPA For Lack Of Transparency, Forgets Her Lack Of Transparency

Thought Piece After being engaged with the EPA senior management since 2005, I must admit that my experience with them especially over the last 8 years has left me with little trust of their news releases and interviews, especially after paying close attention to Lisa Jackson and Gina McCarthy's public statements. Both have sounded hypocritical and [...]

Climate Alarmist Michael Mann Shrieks at ‘Inhuman Cretins’ for Skepticism

Thought Piece Dr. Michael Mann continues to communicate his point of view, with the confidence of the morally righteous. After hearing him testify at the Hearing of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology in March, I thought he was uncivil, glib, and anti-intellectual. Historically, Mann has tried to sue several people and media for [...]

The Center [...]

Harvey, the Storm That Humans Helped Cause

Thought Piece It was only a matter of time before the New York Times ran a story about climate change and Hurricane Harvey. And, it was only a matter of time before the Times had an Op-Ed headline like "Harvey, the Storm That Humans Helped Cause." Whenever the Times (or The Guardian for that matter) runs [...]
