  • “Drop CCC (Climate Change Crisis) and Cap & Trade legislation. It is naive, non-scientific, irrelevant, hopeless and oxymoronic.”

    This is the primary recommendation of American aerospace engineer Burt Rutan based on this analysis of the IPCC data on global warming: http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/rutanagwdataanalysis.pdf
    This in not a Climatologist’s study, and that doesn’t matter. Its merit derives from the value of his analysis and interpretation of data.

    Those who disagree with Mr. Rutan’s recommendation will need to demonstrate that his analysis is flawed. I don’t think it can be done, but am open to those who will try.

  • Here’s some current information that I believe will enlighten the serious minded attempting to grapple with the complexities of global warming science.

    There is no doubt that the United Nations IPCC’s version of global warming is winning the public relations battle. The proof is that our governments are now implementing public policy intended to reduce the rise of the earth’s temperature.

    For those who are paying serious attention however, it is increasingly difficult to comprehend how they can justify discounting the growing chorus of dissenting views and agreeing with VP Gore that dissenters are corrupt quacks.

    Here are two current examples:

    UN Blowback: More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims
    http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Minority.Blogs&ContentRecord_id=2158072e-802a-23ad-45f0-274616db87e6
    If all these guys are quacks, then Donald Duck deserves new respect.

    Then there’s this report that challenges the validity of IPCC’s climate models:
    http://www.aps.org/units/fps/newsletters/200807/monckton.cfm

    The study’s conclusion is worthy of serious consideration:
    “Even if temperature had risen above natural variability, the recent solar Grand Maximum may have been chiefly responsible. Even if the sun were not chiefly to blame for the past half-century’s warming, the IPCC has not demonstrated that, since CO2 occupies only one-ten-thousandth part more of the atmosphere that it did in 1750, it has contributed more than a small fraction of the warming. Even if carbon dioxide were chiefly responsible for the warming that ceased in 1998 and may not resume until 2015, the distinctive, projected fingerprint of anthropogenic “greenhouse-gas” warming is entirely absent from the observed record. Even if the fingerprint were present, computer models are long proven to be inherently incapable of providing projections of the future state of the climate that are sound enough for policymaking. Even if per impossibilethe models could ever become reliable, the present paper demonstrates that it is not at all likely that the world will warm as much as the IPCC imagines. Even if the world were to warm that much, the overwhelming majority of the scientific, peer-reviewed literature does not predict that catastrophe would ensue. Even if catastrophe might ensue, even the most drastic proposals to mitigate future climate change by reducing emissions of carbon dioxide would make very little difference to the climate. Even if mitigation were likely to be effective, it would do more harm than good: already millions face starvation as the dash for biofuels takes agricultural land out of essential food production: a warning that taking precautions, “just in case”, can do untold harm unless there is a sound, scientific basis for them. Finally, even if mitigation might do more good than harm, adaptation as (and if) necessary would be far more cost-effective and less likely to be harmful.
    In short, we must get the science right, or we shall get the policy wrong. If the concluding equation in this analysis (Eqn. 30) is correct, the IPCC’s estimates of climate sensitivity must have been very much exaggerated. There may, therefore, be a good reason why, contrary to the projections of the models on which the IPCC relies, temperatures have not risen for a decade and have been falling since the phase-transition in global temperature trends that occurred in late 2001. Perhaps real-world climate sensitivity is very much below the IPCC’s estimates. Perhaps, therefore, there is no “climate crisis” at all. At present, then, in policy terms there is no case for doing anything. The correct policy approach to a non-problem is to have the courage to do nothing.”

    While the global warming alarmists have done a masterful public relations job in promoting their agenda, they are losing badly in the areas of science, logic and common sense.

global warming

  1. 1. Take Action!
  2. 2. <ul><li>There are many simple things you can do in your daily life — what you eat, what you drive, how you build your home — that can have an effect on your immediate surrounding, and on places as far away as Antactica. Here is a list of few things that you can do to make a difference. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Use Compact Fluorescent Bulbs </li></ul><ul><li>Replace 3 frequently used light bulbs with compact </li></ul><ul><li>fluorescent bulbs. Save 300 lbs. of carbon dioxide and </li></ul><ul><li>$60 per year. </li></ul>Inflate Your Tires Keep the tires on your car adequately inflated. Check them monthly. Save 250 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $840 per year.
  4. 4. Change Your Air Filter Check your car's air filter monthly. Save 800 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $130 per year. Fill the Dishwasher Run your dishwasher only with a full load. Save 100 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $40 per year. Use Recycled Paper Make sure your printer paper is 100% post consumer recycled paper. Save 5 lbs. of carbon dioxide per ream of paper.
  5. 5. Adjust Your Thermostat Move your heater thermostat down two degrees in winter and up two degrees in the summer. Save 2000 lbs of carbon dioxide and $98 per year. Check Your Waterheater Keep your water heater thermostat no higher than 120°F. Save 550 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $30 per year. Change the AC Filter Clean or replace dirty air conditioner filters as recommended. Save 350 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $150 per year.
  6. 6. Take Shorter Showers Showers account for 2/3 of all water heating costs. Save 350 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $99 per year. Install a Low-Flow Showerhead Using less water in the shower means less energy to heat the water. Save 350 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $150. Buy Products Locally Buy locally and reduce the amount of energy required to drive your products to your store.
  7. 7. Buy Energy Certificates Help spur the renewable energy market and cut global warming pollution by buying wind certificates and green tags. Buy Minimally Packaged Goods Less packaging could reduce your garbage by about 10%. Save 1,200 pounds of carbon dioxide and $1,000 per year. Buy a Hybrid Car The average driver could save 16,000 lbs. of CO2 and $3,750 per year driving a hybrid
  8. 8. Buy a Fuel Efficient Car Getting a few extra miles per gallon makes a big difference. Save thousands of lbs. of CO2 and a lot of money per year. Carpool When You Can Own a big vehicle? Carpooling with friends and co-workers saves fuel. Save 790 lbs. of carbon dioxide and hundreds of dollars per year. Reduce Garbage Buy products with less packaging and recycle paper, plastic and glass. Save 1,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide per year.
  9. 9. Plant a Tree Trees suck up carbon dioxide and make clean air for us to breathe. Save 2,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide per year.

Unplug Un-Used Electronics Even when electronic devices are turned off, they use energy. Save over 1,000 lbs of carbon dioxide and $256 per year.
  11. 11. Put on a Sweater Instead of turning up the heat in your home, wear more clothes Save 1,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $250 per year. Air Dry Your Clothes Line-dry your clothes in the spring and summer instead of using the dryer. Save 700 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $75 per year. Switch to a Tankless Water Heater Your water will be heated as you use it rather than keeping a tank of hot water. Save 300 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $390 per year.
  12. 12. Switch to Double Pane Windows Double pane windows keep more heat inside your home so you use less energy. Save 10,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide and $436 per year. Buy Organic Food The chemicals used in modern agriculture pollute the water supply, and require energy to produce. Bring Cloth Bags to the Market Using your own cloth bag instead of plastic or paper bags reduces waste and requires no additional energy
