Despite What You’ve Heard, Global Warming Isn’t Making Weather More Extreme

Thought Piece Thanks to the harvesting of indisputable data, Roger Pielke, Jr. has once again poked a huge hole in the mythology of cataclysmic weather events. After the latest spate of cold weather (aka winter), the climate change narrative predictably has been enlarged to include winter snow storms. “Is there nothing it can’t do.” In case [...]

Climate-Change Policies Can Be Punishing for the Poor

Thought Piece Let us hope that discussions about global warming can be more like the debates between those two brothers than between those who absolutely, completely agree with Paul Krugman, who wrote in his New York Times column in June, 'Betraying the Planet" that "as I watched the deniers make their arguments, I couldn't help thinking [...]

Climate Scientists Are Now Suing Critics Who Challenge ‘Settled Science’

Thought Piece This story is another reminder that “scientists” like Michael Mann are already using what he called “trench warfare.” In a related matter, Mann and 14 other fellow believers have recently published a paper in Bioscience journal slandering Dr. Susan Crockford’s scholarly work regarding polar bears. Unsurprisingly, Dr. Crockford has been recording the growing population [...]

Don’t despair, get to work, says former EPA chief Gina McCarthy

Thought Piece “Climate change is happening,” Gina McCarthy said, “We have to stop debating the science.” While Gina sees black and white, I see red. The McCarthy lecture seems just too silo-thinking, too simplistic, too parochial, and too eco-religious for an adult audience. Where is the discussion about national and international economic development, the importance of [...]

Will Questioning Climate Change Become Illegal in Canada?

Thought Piece This trope about banning any debate over climate change should please Michael Mann and Gina McCarthy. Maybe, he can give another anti-intellectual speech at the University of Michigan or Gina give another morally superior speech at Columbia Law School? Steve P.S. “The particular evil of silencing of an expression of an opinion.” - John [...]

Academic freedom lecturer takes on claims of climate change deniers

Thought Piece Clearly, Penn State University’s Professor Michael Mann has no sense of humor, nor does he have a sense of irony. Speaking at the “Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom,” Mann gave a speech preaching for the end of climate change debate at the University of Michigan, after Michigan’s President Mark Schlissel introduced guest speaker [...]

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 [...]

Is climate change making hurricanes worse?

Thought Piece In all fairness, I need to include this recent piece by the https://lnkd.in/g7xmuFq. Although, it is an interview, which means it has only one point of view. Yes, I could write a counter argument, but I am following my own advice on humility and civility. Steve Is climate change making hurricanes worse? By Staff [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
