I have been invited to be part of the counter programming on Watts Up With That’s 24 hour broadcast that will be starting tomorrow night. Here is the summary of the event from the Watts website. ———————– Counter programming to Al Gore’s ‘Dirty Weather Report’ will be on WUWT-TV Live starting Wednesday Nov. 14 […]

Over the past few weeks I have had many opportunities to discuss the theory of anthropogenic global warming with a variety of people. Most of these people have little to no scientific background, but they were shocked to find that I was a skeptic of the theory that the CO2 emissions would cause the Earth to warm up. One of these people is a member of a national college debate team. That discussion was interesting because science played no role, it was all about the number of people that support global warming and those that are skeptical of global warming.

I will be attending the upcoming conference in Chicago this week. I will be providing updates on things that I find interesting over the next few days. Having never attended anything like this before I am not sure what to expect, but I hope that I will be able to spark some interesting discussions there.
A relevant quote of what I expect to find is “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” To me it seems that the same arguments are repeated over and over again with the expectation that pointing out UHI flaws is going to win the debate. The key as I see it is to understand the climate as a whole. That is what is missing and the reason I wrote the book and have this website is to change the nature of the debate. Wish me luck.

Next week I plan on making a big push to get this information out to many, many people. This is one of the key topics that is covered in my book. It is not the only critical topic, but this one by itself is enough to demonstrate in a scientific way that warming as described by The Theory of Global Warming is impossible. My goal is to present this and related information to a wide audience next week. Wish me luck.

I am going to be the first to admit that I have been taking it easy for the past couple of weeks. By that I mean I have still been working my full-time job and trying to raise 4 children (all of them teenagers by the end of 2012). The good news is that the kids are back in school tomorrow which will help me have some more spare time for some articles that I want to write for the website. As my experience in this has increased I have found that the articles I like to write explain what is going on with the Earth and it’s climate. More and more what I write will require an understanding of the science in my book. Expect this year to have many articles that explain the Earth’s climate in context of the longer climate cycle.

I have been reading a fair amount of the news associated with the latest release of the CRU emails and have even downloaded the whole cache and peeked through them a little. It is entertaining and somewhat informative, but my response to the whole thing seems to be very different than the response of others. […]

Later today there is going to be a debate at my daughter’s school about Global Warming. She is one of the few students to sign-up for the opposing side of the debate. Since the debate will be taking place at the 8th grade level I am not exactly sure the depth that the debate will cover, but she is getting to take the original “proof” copy of my book to school to use for her debate. I suspect that it is far too much information for her debate, but she will be well prepared. The one other thing I also wanted to prepare her with was some basic information about what is going on with the climate in the year of 2011 with the Earth’s temperature. This was also a topic that I wanted to write about anyway, so the time is right for this article.

I fully agree with the assertion that CO2 is dependent on temperature (ocean temperature specifically) and I have shown why this is in the past. What I had not considered was that the entire baseline for CO2 could be incorrect. What the ice cores really provide though is a natural ceiling for the total ‘natural’ level of CO2 in the atmosphere. The ice cores show that for the past 400,000 years the level of CO2 never exceeds 300 ppm. The highest recorded value in the Vostok ice core is 298.7 ppmv which was for YBP 323,485. If that data is accepted, then values higher than that today must be unnatural. That is certainly what warmists like to show.

The recent presentation by Dr. Murry Salby is getting lots of attention. I have now listened to his podcast and I must say it is intriguing. Instead of rehashing discussion that has been done to death on other sites I am going to show some things that I found previously that tie in well with his paper. I didn’t understand what I found at the time, but now it is clear that what I found actually supports what he is proposing. That human emissions have almost no impact that global CO2.
When I was working with the sea level data and the acceleration rates for the sea level I also used that same method on temperature and CO2 level. Acceleration is the rate at which the rate is changing. Acceleration is zero if the speed is not changing. When I used the same method for determining the acceleration for temperature I ended up with this result.

There is a new paper involving the omnipresent Michael Mann that is going to get lots of attention. The paper isn’t even out yet, but already I am very intrigued because the data used in the charts is clearly not the data that it says it is. The graph in the paper shows significantly more warming that the data it claims to be. For a peer-reviewed document that should be the gold standard, this one is already seriously lacking at the first cursory review.
At first glance I saw something wrong with the top chart in this figure.
