This is a Palmer drought index graph for the Northeast United States for July from 1900 to present courtesy of the Climate Cult mother ship NOAA. The unbiased observer may become confused.  If the primary driver of Global warming (CO2) causes drought, and we are emitting more of it than ever before, why is the Northeast wetter and […]

Solar Physics has a breakthrough. The settled-scientific community wants it retracted. Why? Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun. If correct, this new discovery means that future solar cycles and variations in the Sun’s activity can be predicted more accurately.

Trusting Models Too Much…

by Steve MacDonald May 25, 2016
Thumbnail image for Trusting Models Too Much…

(IBD) Trusting the models too much is not the only gaping hole in the climate alarmists’ claims. Their bigger problem is that they rely on models that have been consistently wrong. The heat that the models have predicted for decades has simply not arrived. And, as the Daily Caller pointed out last week, the federal […]

CO2 – It’s GOOD for the planet

by Skip April 28, 2016

Yeah, I’m betting that the NIMBY and BANANA enviros that hate all energy other than solar are going to watch each other’s heads explode: CO2 Increasing Food Production And Plant Water Efficiency: Two new papers in the journal “Nature Climate Change” are pointing out the positive benefits of increased Co2 . The first claims that […]

Electric Cars aren’t About to Save the Planet

by Steve MacDonald April 7, 2016
Thumbnail image for Electric Cars aren’t About to Save the Planet

Not news to me but I never get tired of other people pointing out the scam. While electric cars typically emit less CO2, the savings are smaller than most imagine. Over a 150,000 km lifetime, the top-line Tesla S will emit about 13 tonnes of CO2. But the production of its batteries alone will emit […]

This will torque Bruce Currie off: “Increased atmospheric Carbon Dioxide has increased U.S. forest health in recent decades”

“United States forest health has improved over recent decades and is not likely to be impaired in at least the next few decades.” Bruce is one of our Progressive commenters here at the ‘Grok; I do give him kudos for entering our “lion’s den” especially when posts on global cooling global warming climate change climate […]

Hey Buddy, Would You Like To Buy A Bridge in Kyoto?

Thumbnail image for Hey Buddy, Would You Like To Buy A Bridge in Kyoto?

Emphasis mine It’s been 18 years and 1 month since there has been any global warming, something not a single climate model has predicted or been able to explain. … As more than one actual scientist has explained, CO2 levels lag behind temperature changes, not lead them. There are a couple of hundred thousands of […]

GrokSHOTS! – CO2 Where are You!

by Steve MacDonald May 27, 2014
Thumbnail image for GrokSHOTS!  – CO2 Where are You!

CO2 is a trace element, and yet we are supposed to be terrified by it because it….also comes from affordable and abundant energy.  But allowing Democrats to end affordable and abundant energy (and replace it with unaffordable, unreliable energy) will not have much if any impact on how much CO2 there is because most of […]

  Today, we live in an unusually cold period in the history of life on earth and there is no reason to believe that a warmer climate would be anything but beneficial for humans and the majority of other species. There is ample reason to believe that a sharp cooling of the climate would bring […]

The Shaman’s at the United Nations Intergovernmental Plunderers for Climate Cash (IPCC) have eyed the computerized goat-entrails yet-again and determined that the failure of sinners to repent will result in even greater global pain and suffering than all previous predictions combined, or something.  (Pick up your environmentally friendly ‘The end is Near” sandwich boards at […]

This was compiled using global satellite data.  No heat islands.  Best gauge of global temperature trends over long periods of time.  The longest trend (purple) is flat.  The last full decade (green) flat with a slight drop near 2010.  The last ten consecutive years (blue) are in decline.   And it is no coincidence that this […]

New Research Suggests that Cleaner Air Causes Global Warming

Poweline has a post up titled, ‘Is Clean Air The Cause of Global Warming?“ You’d have to have had some sustained warming for that to even be true but let’s play along because this is actually devastating to the infinite number of Donkey’s with the infinite number of “typewriters” (or their modern digital equivalent)  charged […]

Atmospheric Fertilization – Another Point in Support of A Climate Reformation

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2013

It is wise to question why the computer models of the environmentalists who cried wolf have failed so spectacularly.   We should ask how the data provided to justify climate fear-mongering in general has failed to produce any of the results claimed.  We should ask why limousine liberals who insist the seas are rising continue […]

The World is NOT Getting Warmer…Mr. President!

by Steve MacDonald November 15, 2012

Nothing speaks to the cloistered nature of what passes for left wing intelligence like Global Warming.  It is the perfect litmus test.  All you need do is ask and if the respondent sounds like this, you can rest assured that most everything else they know come from the same poisoned well. What we do know […]

Where’d All The CO2 Go?

This is curious.  Just when the Global Warming Monkeys we’re complaining about how its totally hot, like…as if we were experiencing, like, Global warming, Ok?  OMG! So why is it so damn hot if US CO2 emissions from energy are nearing their lowest since 1991…without cap and trade?   Could it just be the weather?   […]

[Updated] AP Proves CO2 based Global Warming Is A Hoax

by Steve MacDonald November 4, 2011

The problem, or course, is that CO2 emissions have been on an upward climb for decades while global temperature have failed to follow. They continue to go up and down without any connection follow CO2 in any measurable way whatsoever.

Another Whack at RGGI

by Steve MacDonald May 31, 2011

..what I find particularity perverse is that “Republican” Senators in New Hampshire could be tying themselves to the Massachusetts compromise as the tipping point at which staying in RGGI would then no longer make sense.

NH Senate Should BEG Our forgiveness on RGGI

by Steve MacDonald May 16, 2011

I just hope none of these Republican State senators took a pledge against broad based taxes, because they just voted to keep the tax on everything. You can’t get much broader than that.

For Repeal of RGGI

by Don May 5, 2011

If energy efficiency is beneficial to people, governments, businesses, etc., then why do the rest of us have to subsidize their usage?
I believe the savings claims from energy efficiency are BOGUS.
CFLs contain mercury, a known poison, especially harmful to children. CFLs will put mercury into tens of millions of homes most of which will never know how to treat breakage safely causing untold negative consequences to people, our environment, and our water supply.
Governments around the world have been subsidizing the investigation into global warming to the tune of billions of dollars every year for many years. Yet, the global warming advocates can’t prove man-made global warming, the best they have done so far is to publish lies, and to try to prevent people who disagree from being heard.

A Global Warming Alarmist In ‘Efficiency Sheeps’ Clothing?

by Steve MacDonald March 20, 2011

Jim never explains why, if we have that tax in place to benefit state sponsored efficiency projects, why we signed onto a separate system that adds an additional tax, supervised by an out of state entity, that skims a portion of that “tax” off the top for administrative costs? How does that help everyone in New Hampshire when it diverts some of that so-called benefit away from the state.
