Despite no global warming in 10 years and recording setting cold in 2007-2008, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change (IPCC) and computer modelers who believe that CO2 is the cause of global warming still predict the Earth is in store for catastrophic warming in this century. IPCC computer models have predicted global warming of 1° F per decade and 5-6° C (10-11° F) by 2100 (Fig. 1), which would cause global catastrophe with ramifications for human life, natural habitat, energy and water resources, and food production.
All of this is predicated on the assumption that global warming is caused by increasing atmospheric CO2 and that CO2 will continue to rise rapidly. Continue reading

Global warmists stand by their predictions that USA Pacific Northwest summer temperatures are going up at 0.5 F per decade. The problem is 8 years of data show the temperatures are going down at -3.06 F per decade.
When data contradicts predictions, good scientists stand with the data and dispose of their hypotheses. But pseudo scientists like the global warmists ignore the data and continue to preach their predictions. They brainwash their students and delude the public.
You can check this data for yourself on Obama’s and Jim Hansen’s NOAA website: Continue reading

NOTE: This is a Draft. When it is completed it will be open for comments.
The prosecution has now rested its case after having accused human-emitted CO2 of causing catastrophic, anthropogenic global warming (CAGW). Prosecution arguments are found in Posts 1, 4, 6, 7, and 9.
Now the defense will begin its rebuttal. This rebuttal will be in several parts. This first part is about temperature data and it will dispute many of the claims made by the prosecution in Post 7. Continue reading

The Prosecution has completed its case against Human CO2. Human CO2 is charged with causing significant AGW and with forecast future significant damages to the planet.
Before we proceed, we need to outline the Prosecution’s case. Continue reading

In my first Post called “1. A Common Sense View of AGW”, I presented a simple qualitative view of the AGW problem in order to relate the essence of what the debate is primarily about. In this Post 6, we will move on to consider some basic quantitative aspects of AGW. In this section, we will be searching, in particular, for good expressions for what’s called the temperature “Sensitivity” for CO2. That number indicates the increase in average global temperature that would be caused by a doubling of its concentration. To better appreciate the immediate importance of this number, recall this. Atmospheric CO2 was at 280 prior to the Industrial Revolution. It is now 392 and rising at a rate of 2 ppm per year. Therefore, a “business as usual” course will lead to a doubling CO2 within the current century (by about 2094). Continue reading
Dr. Eric Grimsrud and Dr. Ed Berry both live in Flathead County, Montana. As a result of their Letters to the Editor in the Daily Inter Lake, they agreed to conduct an online debate open to the general public. While they live in what many consider a remote part of America, their Climate Clash debate is relevant to all of America even into the Halls of Congress. Continue reading
