A Climate Change Skeptic

Here is an article by Patrick Moore.  He is a founding member of Greenpeace and served for nine years as president of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a director of Greenpeace International.

A journey from true believer to skeptic.

Well worth a read here

BTW is the earth warming?  Yes

Jumping sea snails

I ask.  Who pays for research into this stuff.  Note when predicting AGW events nowadays the caveats could, would, suggest and may are always used.

Are research grants available to any thing that has AGW in it ?


THE effects of climate change could hinder sea snails’ extraordinary ability to leap away from predators on one foot, Queensland researchers have found.

Study co-author Professor Goran Nilsson, from the University of Oslo, says results of the study suggest carbon dioxide emissions directly alter the behaviour of many marine animals, including seafood.

Global Cooling

Not Global Warming or Climate Change or Extreme Events.  The earth may be entering a cooling stage or an ice age !

Scientists are now thinking it may be the sun.  Now who would-a thought that.

This cooling meme and the sun has been around for a long time.  With no warming for 16 years and the seas rising as they have for a least a century. The climate models are failing, now looking for an excuse to back away.

Scientists are now beginning to rethink their climate change models and are seriously discussing the possibility the earth is entering into a period of global cooling.

Environmentalist Lawrence Solomon writing in the Financial Post cites the fact that solar activity is currently decreasing at one of the fastest rates as anytime the last 10,000 years. Because of this, he says many scientists are actually reverting from the mantra of global warming and are now subscribing to the possibility of global cooling occurring.

The AGW gravy train may be ending, slowly.               So what will be the next scare?  My guess – Water.

AGW not happening?

Take this for what it is worth.

“Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals U.K.Met Office. Report quietly released…”

Has it slowed, paused, very-very slow or not happening.  Another 5 years will tell.

The skeptics are saying “see I told you”, the true believers will never let go, and the Greens have hung their hat on this.

In a paper published in Nature Climate Change, Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, director of the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland, together with Greg Rau of the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of California, and Elizabeth McLeod of The Nature Conservancy, say new tactics are needed to save oceans from CO2 emissions.

“It’s unwise to assume we will be able to stabilise atmospheric CO2 at levels necessary to prevent ongoing damage to marine ecosystems,” Professor Hoegh-Guldberg said.

“In lieu of dealing with the core problem – increasing emissions of greenhouse gases – these techniques and approaches could ultimately represent the last resort.”

In addition to using shade cloth over coral reefs, the paper suggests novel marine conservation options, including applying low-voltage electrical current to stimulate coral growth and mitigate mass bleaching; adding base minerals such as carbonates and silicates to the ocean to neutralize acidity; and converting CO2 from land-based waste into dissolved bicarbonates that could be added to the ocean to provide carbon sequestration.

Quote of the Week: Whether increasing CO2 in the atmosphere is bad or good is a question of science. And in science, truth and facts are not the playthings of causes, nor a touchstone of political correctness, nor true religion, nor “what I tell you three times is true.”
