Supreme Court's Stay of EPA Carbon Rules Gives Time to Get the Climate Science Right

climate change - Science is never settledJACKSON, Wyo., Feb. 11, 2016 -- The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday to temporarily block implementation of the EPA's Clean Power Plan while lawsuits from 29 states and many power companies proceed. It also provides a chance to be sure the science behind this plan is correct.

"New data and understanding now show that the science underlying the global 'consensus' on climate change is flawed," says Dr. Peter Langdon Ward, a geophysicist who worked 27 years with the US Geological Survey. Ward spent the last ten years reexamining the many assumptions underlying greenhouse warming theory.

"Current climate models calculate energy incorrectly," Ward explains, "based on a fundamental misunderstanding in physics going back 150 years."

New Application Shows Projected Climate Change Impacts in California

Interactive Tool Provides Actionable Climate Data to Help Scientists and Planners

SACRAMENTO - (August 25, 2015) - An application that shows how climate change could alter ecosystems in the California desert and the natural range of birds, fish, and mammals was released today by the California Energy Commission.

Medieval Warm Period on the Northeastern Tibetan Plateau

Datsenko et al. (2014) write that the problems of current climate change, the establishment of reasons for it, and the development of scenarios of its further potential evolution are still the "focus of attention of climatologists," and so they proceed to describe their most recent foray into this controversial realm of research.

FIRE STATISTICS DEBUNK ASSERTED LINK TO GLOBAL WARMING

California Governor Jerry Brown blamed global warming for recent wildfires in California, but objective data show a decline in wildfires as our planet modestly warms.

2013 was one of the quietest wildfire years in U.S. history, according to data from the federal government’s National Interagency Fire Center. The 47,000 wildfires last year may seem like a very large number – and it certainly gives global warming alarmists like Brown plenty of fodder for misleading claims – but the 47,000 wildfires was less than half the average number of wildfires that occurred each year in the 1960s and 1970s. Earth was cooling during the 1960s and 1970s when so many more wildfires occurred.

CLIMATE SCIENTIST CHRISTY PRESENTS DATA SHOWING NO CRISIS

Climate scientist John Christy presented a series of charts and data at a global warming conference showing warming is proceeding at a modest pace and not causing significant harm. Christy, a climate scientist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville who oversees NASA’s satellite instruments measuring global temperatures, presented records debunking many of the most frequently asserted global warming myths.

In his first chart, Christy presented National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data documenting a long-term decline in powerful tornadoes. Data during the past 50 years show tornado activity peaked in the early 1970s and has been in gradual decline for the past 40 years.
