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 [...]

Al Gore’s Climate Sequel Misses a Few More Facts: Eleven years since first climate-change film, Al’s still trying to spend $17 trillion on doomsday!

Thought Piece If Soren Kierkegaard is right that "life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards," then I wish Mr. Gore could remember how to look backwards: He might recall that his dire predictions started over 13 or 14 years ago which is where he gave a 10 minute slide called "The Day After [...]

Al Gore Wants $15 Trillion To Fight Off Apocalyptic 2 Degree Global Temperature Rise: For those of you ignorant, science-hating, climate-doubters….

Thought Piece [I have told Al Gore a quadrillion times not to exaggerate (or maybe it is a good thing), because otherwise he may have asked for $1 quadrillion. If Soren Kierkegaard is right that "life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards," then I wish Mr. Gore could remember how to [...]

A ‘Red Team’ Exercise Would Strengthen Climate Science: Put ‘consensus’ to test and improve public understanding, through an open, adversarial process

Thought Piece [Paranoid politics almost never achieves its goal. The obvious prejudices, hyperbole, rhetoric, and shrillness gives it away. Name-calling, smearing, and sneering are not arguments. The idea of a Red Team Exercise--which will tolerate a loyal opposition, a civil debate, a thoughtful discussion, and a well-reasoned dissent—seems like a civilized idea for a civilized society. Steve]  [...]

Real science must guide policy: Climate alarmists use faulty science and bald assertions to demand end to fossil fuels

Thought Piece [Paul Driessen recaps the testimony by four scientist witnesses at the recent House Science Committee hearings on assumptions, policy implications and scientific principles of climate change.  He makes a thought-provoking and compelling case that the supposed “consensus” or “settled” science on “dangerous manmade climate change” is still much in dispute and has been driven [...]

The role a melting glacier played in Exxon’s biggest disaster: “Global Warming, is there anything it can’t do?” Homer Simpson

Thought Piece [Ordinarily, I would have provided some editorial comment to a story like the one which appeared in the LA Times today, but I have been rendered almost speechless.  Making Exxon a silent corporate conspirator, hiding its early knowledge of global warming, in the Valdez oil spill is an one-sided journalistic disaster of biblical proportions.
