Speaking about Climate Change and Degrees…

by Skip September 16, 2018

It doesn’t seem to be much “there”, does there? The seasonally-adjusted global average temperature fell slightly to +0.19 °C (+0.34 °F) as nearly all regions of the globe cooled relative to their July readings.  For the first 8 months of the 2018 calendar year, the atmosphere is averaging a departure from average of +0.23 °C […]

Another datum supporting the idea that Climate Change is all about the $$ and not “degrees”

by Skip September 16, 2018

Who knew that there was a Bangkok climate change conference, not to talk about climate change, but to talk about our Benjamins? It seems this whole thing is about “your money becoming our money, you greedy developed nations!”. So who is really surprised at this….at all? Meet fails to agree climate change rules …Espinosa [UNFCCC […]

From Feb. 2016 to Feb. 2018 the global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C

by Steve MacDonald May 21, 2018

Aaron Brown, writing at Real Clear Markets reports that, according to NASA Data, “the greatest global two-year cooling event of the last century just occurred.” How could you have missed that news? It sounds a lot like Climate Change. The Climate changed, measurably, and historically, on the altar of the same NASA Climate Temple as […]

Pine Tree Ramblings – Vol 8

by Tom April 16, 2018

Global Warming.  Liberal logic at its best. “The warming is causing cooling” “Increased snowfall may offset rises in ocean levels” “Antarctic ice gain is caused by Arctic ice loss” I guess when you have a narrative to follow,

Climate Change, Climate Change, Climate Change – is there nothing we can’t blame it on?

by Skip February 9, 2018

There is a water crisis going on in Cape Town, South Africa right now – they are expecting to run out of potable water in this city of 4 million people rather soon (a few months) and the Concord Monitor is both wringing its hands and bunching up its panties over it.  Given the headline […]

And US Ambassador to NH Jeanne Shaheen said the same thing!

GET OUT OF NYC – James Hanson (climate scientist) said it will be underwater by morning!

by Skip December 31, 2017

Heh!  Yet another “science based” climate alarmism prediction down the tubes: Say goodbye to Lower Manhattan, everybody! By midnight tonight, it will be gone forever—drowned by the melting icecaps of the disappearing Arctic…it will be a tremendous vindication for the expertise of James Hansen, the former director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) […]

There is No Consensus on Climate and There Never Was

by Steve MacDonald October 26, 2017

James Delingpole writes, “When I reported earlier this year on the 58 scientific papers published in 2017 that say global warming is a myth the greenies’ heads exploded. Since then, that figure has risen to 400 scientific papers.” Those unreported or underreported reports number closer to 900 if we count the 500 published last year. Each and every one takes […]

A Type of “Climate” Change Environmental Groups Don’t Believe

Scott Pruitt’s EPA is the first Executive agency to abandon the questionable Obama-Era practice of “Sue and Settle.” “The days of regulation through litigation are over,” EPA chief Scott Pruitt declared in a statement. “We will no longer go behind closed doors and use consent decrees and settlement agreements to resolve lawsuits filed against the […]

Another worthless Obama legacy ready to be dissolved

by Skip January 23, 2017

OK, a bit late on this as Prager U posted it on the 16th – 4 days before Trump’s Inauguration so Gina McCarthy (EPA head) and President Obama are now gone.  And I will make the prediction that Trump will cancel this by Executive Order. SURE he can – even though Obama sent $100s of […]

The ‘disappearing’ of the Climate Change page at was one of the first changes I heard about yesterday. Less than an hour after President Trump took the oath of office on Friday, the White House’s webpage on climate change disappeared from the Executive Branch’s main site, the latest sign that the new administration will divert resources […]

Dr. Bjorn Lomborg on UN Climate Treaty – extremely little bang for Trillions of dollars spent

Statistician: UN climate treaty will cost $100 trillion – To Have No Impact – Postpone warming by less than four years by 2100 Er, why?  Economists (and families around the kitchen table) know something that politicians don’t* – cost/benefit analysis count.  Real ones, that is and not just the “made it up for the agenda” […]

A Rose by Any Other, Other, Other, Name….

Global Warming became ineffective when the globe stopped warming, so the poo-flinging progressive narrative monkeys changed it to ‘Climate Change.’ To borrow from the Guinness Guys, Brilliant! The climate is changing all the time. Any dope who says they don’t agree with ‘Climate Change’ (wink-wink), especially here in New England, will look like a stodgy old fool. […]

The impending doom of the Marshall Islands, which alarmists predicted were destined to drown in short-order thanks to uncontrolled anthropogenic sea-level rise, has been called off. You may have missed that update. You can blame the lack of mainstream media reporting on the rapid decline in sea level around the no longer doomed poster-child atoll of […]
