EPA tries to do Maximum Damage in Three Months

Yesterday, while visiting the TPPF’s Policy Orientation conference, I learned of a highly unusual Oil and Natural Gas Information Collection Request, issued by the EPA to owners and operators of practically all oils & gas production wells in December 2016.

The EPA demands answers to the ICR Part I within 60 days from the receipt of the ICR Letter, but the sample letter on the EPA website is dated by November 14.  I address here only the ICR Part I because of is urgency.  The ICR Part I demands detailed information about all oil and gas extraction sites, for each site including:

  • The exact site coordinates
  • The number of separators
  • The number of dehydrators
  • The number of storage tanks with capacity below 10 barrels per day [sic]
  • The number of storage tanks with capacity above 10 barrels per day [sic]
  • The numbers of compressors, with break down by the compressor type
  • List of all wells and their types

This ICR has nothing to do with the environment protection.  Obama administration publicly announced its goal to cripple and to eventually shut down domestic oil production (“climate leadership”).  Further, many EPA officials are linked to extremist climate alarmism outfits, and are accustomed to follow advice (or to fulfill instructions) from those outfits and their associates, including foreign entities such as the Climate Action Network, Greenpeace, and WWF.  These EPA officials might be unaware of those entities’ agendas and the consequences of their actions.

There are more than one million oil and gas wells in this country.  On the face, the goal of this ICR is to burden the oil producers, most of whom are small businesses, with onerous information collection.  But there seems to be a more sinister plan behind it.  Most of the requested information is not publicly available, or not available in a bulk (dataset) form.  The EPA designated ICR Part 1 as non-confidential and intends to publish this information and make it accessible as a dataset as soon as possible.

The requested data would allow the interested parties to derive additional information, including each site’s output, used technologies, relative importance, and security vulnerabilities.  The dataset would be sufficient to make maps of the field pipelines, other oil infrastructure, and to select best targets for physical attacks.

The effect of this EPA action will be exposure of the national oil extraction infrastructure to sabotage and terrorism.  In my opinion, it is also the intent, although the responsible EPA officials might be not aware of it.  A salient but rarely mentioned fact is that the Climate Action Network, which publicly coordinates such activities, is headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon, which also happens to be a home to multiple terrorist groups.

Publication of the requested information would also put the US oil industry in severe competitive disadvantage.

Oddly, the EPA subcontracted collection and processing of the information to RTI International (www.rti.org), a putatively non-profit corporation with offices all over the world, including China and United Arab Emirates, an OPEC member.  The contract number is EP-D-11-084, expired in September 2016. (http://www.rti.org/sites/default/files/brochures/epacollaboration.pdf)

The Information Collection Request, including the ICR Letter, the spreadsheets, and the usual drivel, are available from the EPA website.

Bill Nye the Fake Science Guy on Fake News

Apparently, producers and editors of the leftstream TV channels lost ability to distinguish fiction from reality.  Such TV genres as reality shows, environmentalist propaganda, and the liberal drivel in general blend reality and fiction in various ways.  Combined with echoes of academic postmodern contructivist theories, this leads to the current post-truth reporting.  Alternatively, the leftstream TV expresses contempt to its viewers.  Whatever the cause, the fictional character “Bill Nye the Science Guy” has been presented as a real scientist on ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN.

CAG, CAN, MediaMatters, UCS

An example of the centralized propagation of the Climate Alarmism Governance (CAG) resolutions is an article, published on MediaMatters, December 31, 2015:

5 New Year’s Resolutions For Reporting On Climate Change

“Resolution #1: I Will Disclose The Fossil Fuel Ties Of Those Attacking Climate And Clean Energy Policies

Resolution #2: I Will Not Provide False Balance On The Science Of Climate Change

Resolution #3: I Will Provide The Climate Change Context When Reporting On Extreme Weather Events

Resolution #4: I Will Compel Presidential Candidates To Discuss Climate Change, And Hold Them Accountable When They Do

Resolution #5: I Will Give Climate Change The Coverage It Deserves”

The resolutions 1-3 obviously compel journalists to publish fake news.  But the real shocker is that these resolutions are not personal thoughts, but actual instructions for journalists, the party line. MediaMatters is a mouthpiece of the Center for American Progress, an apparent member of Climintern and an ideological organ of the ruling Demonrat Party.  Journalists and publications, following MediaMatters instructions, received public money, generously given away by Obama administration to promote climate alarmism.  Obama administration could not punish authors and publications that did not follow MediaMatters instructions directly, so it punished them by proxy, by going after their supporters, advertisers, or funders, frequently in collusion with CAG, foreign political parties and other entities.  Continue reading CAG, CAN, MediaMatters, UCS

Were NSF rules designed to protect climate fraud?

Michael Mann et al claimed they were not required to share code according to the rules, allegedly made by the National Science Foundation.  These alleged rules seem unique.  For example, commentators writing in Nature expect scientists who publish in peer-reviewed journals not only to share their code, but to do that quickly:

“Authors and journals should share data and code quickly when questions arise.”

This makes sense.  If the NSF issued a rule against mandatory code disclosure in time for Mann et al to use it, it might have done that with explicit purpose to protect the climate fraud.

Wikipedia, a housemaid of climate alarmism

In 2009, Wikipedia was hit by a scandal, when the public learned that William Connolley, a  British Green Party politician and avid climate alarmist, was a Wikipedia administrator and used his administrative privileges to enforce the alarmist messaging and to suppress dissenting voices.  Additionally, he personally edited more than 5,000 Wikipedia articles related to the climate change debates.  Wikipedia revoked his administrator’s privileges, and the scandal dissipated.

But Wikipedia continued to serve as a mouthpiece of climate alarmism.  In 2010, Wikipedia Arbitration Committee banned Connolley and 15 other editors, including most editors with neutral or “skeptical” views in the climate change debate.  Why? Elementary.

Jimmy Wales, a founder and the public face of Wikipedia, lived in Florida and held Libertarian (in the old sense – Friedrich Hayek and Ayn Rand, not Gary Johnson) political views.  But in order to get funding for Wikipedia, he transferred it to specially created Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), which quickly became dominated by a cast of characters that might be called “San Francisco-type liberals.”  WMF even moved to San Francisco.  These characters steered Wikipedia to reflect their own ideological orthodoxy, including climate alarmism.

Wikipedia has built for itself an image of being a community managed undertaking.  This image is not true.  Wikipedia is fully owned and controlled by WMF.  Instead of an Editor-in-Chief, Wikipedia has an hierarchical administrative structure, including the Arbitration Committee, Stewards, and Bureaucrats at the top.  Administrators and other privileged account holders are below them.  Ordinary editors, contributing content, are at the bottom of the hierarchy.  Recently, WMF created a position called Wikipedian in residence, apparently to give taxpayer funded Leftist institutions more power over the Wikipedia content.

And Jimmy Wales has been on the International Climate Change Taskforce since at least 2009The International Climate Change Taskforce was launched on 16 March [2004] by three of the world’s leading think tanks: The Australia Institute, the Institute for Public Policy Research in London and the Center for America Progress in Washington DC.”  The Center for America Progress (CAP), founded by John Podesta with money from the offshore Quantum Hedge Funds, has been a power closely associated with Democrat Party and strongly pushing it to the Left.  The Institute for Public Policy Research was its British twin.  The purpose of this enterprise was “to bring the two countries that have rejected the Kyoto Protocol, the US and Australia, back into the multilateral process,” in other words, to fasten the US and Australia to the EU suicidal train.

“the model is right and the world is wrong” – Hansen

This is the best description of the climatist “science”!  Said by James Hansen about his own model in early 1990’s, according to McKibben:

NASA’s James Hansen, who had already done more than anyone else to warn the world about the greenhouse effect, made the gutsiest call, issuing a precise prediction for how the planet’s temperature would shift, month by month, in the next three years. At first he seemed to have missed, and greenhouse skeptics jumped all over the early results, using them to call the whole theory into question. But at a memorable scientific meeting in Hawaii, Hansen stood up and said, “I believe this is one case where the model is right and the world is wrong.”

Although there are enough fools who believe climate alarmists and other Leftist agitators, the latter resort to paying people to participate in demonstrations, and even purchase services of firms, specializing in “organizing civil disobedience.”  From McKibben, Oil and Honey: The Education of an Unlikely Activist (referring to events of 2011):

“Our advance team had been on the ground in Washington for three weeks. It turns out that in a market society there are people equipped to fill every need, including organizing civil disobedience. The crew we’d found, and who would soon become close colleagues, was headed by Matt Leonard.”

“Matt kept saying that we’d be fine with five or ten arrestees a day over our two-week protest; even as the number of people signing up kept mounting, he cautioned that many would melt away. The D.C. police must have felt the same way, because it was next to impossible to get their attention— our team was bounced from one sergeant to another, and none seemed to take the whole thing very seriously. I began to worry they’d just let us sit there, that we wouldn’t get arrested at all.”

Mann’s SLAPP Slipped

The DC Court of Appeals has just thrown out the lawsuit, filed by the hockey stick trickster Michael Mann against the National Review Online. Mann’s lawsuits against Mark Steyn and CEI/Rand Simberg are still pending.

These lawsuits are frequently attributed to Mann’s excessive sensitivity.  I disagree.  These lawsuits were filed in October 2012, following Climate Accountability, Public Opinion, and Legal Strategies Workshop, held in June 2012.  Filing Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPP) was one of the strategies, Continue reading Mann’s SLAPP Slipped

Lindzen: Global Warming and Irrelevance of Science

Excerpts from 2015 essay Global Warming and Irrelevance of Science by Prof. Richard Lindzen.

In many fields, governments have a monopoly on the support of scientific research….

…, the powers that be invent the narrative independently of the views of even cooperating scientists. It is, in this sense, that the science becomes irrelevant. This was certainly the case in the first half of the twentieth century, where we just have to look at Lysenkoism [1] in the former Soviet Union, Social Darwinism, and Eugenics throughout the western world [2], as well as, in the 1960s, the unfounded demonization of DDT [3]. Each phenomenon led to millions of deaths. And, in each case, the scientific community was essentially paralyzed, if not actually complicit. …

The implausibility or even outright silliness whereby global warming became global warming catastrophism (sometimes referred to as CAGW, catastrophic anthropogenic global warming) is so extensive that one hardly knows where to begin. …

Laboratory Earth: The Planetary Gamble We Can’t Afford to Lose by Stephen H. Schneider (1997), Reviewed by Richard S. Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, MIT (1998). Few quotes:

“One would think it would be possible to present a coherent argument and discussion in a small book (154 pages plus 17 pages of introduction and preface), but Stephen Schneider fails.”

“As best I can tell, Schneider is trying to endorse both the study of the Earth as a system and the integrated assessment of potential damage from possible global warming. Schneider’s prejudice is revealed when he presents the Paul Ehrlich-John Holdren formula, I=PAT: Environmental Impact equals Population times Affluence per capita times Technology used. This is in the part of the introduction where Schneider introduces population, affluence and technology as “the enemy”. Here he also informs us that an altered climate is a “damaged climate.” Continue reading Brilliant Richard Lindzen, more links

Climate Alarmism Command

Do you still believe that climate alarmism is a grassroots movement?  Do you still believe it is based on science, possibly exaggerated or misunderstood science?  No, it is a centralized command & control structure with aspirations to become a “global governance” (they shy away from the phrase “global government”.) Read what they say, and think again.

*** James Gustave Speth [Chairman of the Council on Environmental Quality in the Executive Office of the President, 1979-1981], Peter Haas. 2013. Global Environmental Governance: Foundations of Contemporary Environmental Studies:

The challenge of the global environment is fundamentally one of effective governance—global environmental governance.

Global environmental governance is the intersection of global governance with environmental affairs.

*** Hadden, Jennifer. 2015. Networks in Contention: The Divisive Politics of Climate Change (Cambridge Studies in Contentious Politics):

“As one interviewee explained to me regarding the strategy of the international climate coalition: “We work together quite a lot. But we know that we all represent different brands, so we have to be careful to give the appearance of not working together all the time” (Interview, WWF European Policy Office 2008).” 

As one environmental activist explained it to me, “climate change isn’t just an issue anymore, it’s the issue, a meta-issue for everything we work on” (Interview, Danish 92 Group, 2009).

Starting in 1989, these organizations came together to form a coalition: the Climate Action Network (CAN). CAN was founded as a vehicle for transnational coordination among sixty-three organizations. … Much of CAN’s efforts promoted the work of the IPCC and helped establish its centrality in the international climate regime. … In fact, CAN consolidated its coalition structure during this period [1990’s] by creating a high-level political group to facilitate policy and strategic coordination among member groups.

Central to CAN’s advocacy has been the idea that member organizations must “speak with one voice” to influence the international negotiations.

CAN has a large influence on the kinds of strategies which organizations choose to use: “It seems like in CAN, a lot of the large groups set the tune, and we all tend to follow that. But when we work at home, we can’t always sell that, so we might do different things” (Interview, Greenpeace Germany 2010).

the major international NGOs in CAN – WWF, FOE (pre-2008), Oxfam, and Greenpeace – are extensively consulted before proposals are drafted. Most members acknowledge that the big groups have a de facto veto over CAN positions. If these groups approve of a position, the proposal is then circulated to the entire membership …

…, campaigner training materials across Greenpeace, WWF, and FOE encourage staff to identify political opportunities and alter tactics to fit the situation. FOE staff employ a “SWOT” analysis technique – identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats – for the achievement of FOE’s aims. Within Greenpeace, this technique is called “power analysis” and is typically taught to new campaigners during organizational training. As one campaigner described it: We do a power analysis to see what kind of pressure the politicians are susceptible to. Are they susceptible to mobilization? Are they scared of Greenpeace? Can we use the media? Is it better to work through other organizations? We consider questions like this when we decide which tactics are best. (Interview, Greenpeace Nordic 2010)

The Global Campaign for Climate Action (GCCA) was intended to be the public face of a publicity campaign that supported CAN’s insider policy activities (Interview, GCCA 2009).

Notice insolence and sense of being above the law, expressed in the following book title.

*** Lyon, Thomas. 2012. Good Cop/Bad Cop: Environmental NGOs and Their Strategies toward Business.

In company-focused campaigns, individuals in different organizations often take the approach that one NGO will adopt a confrontational attitude while—in a pincer movement—another adopts a more collaborative posture. As Jules Peck of WWF-UK explains, “Different NGOs have different skills. The good cop, bad cop routine works really well. Where we agree on the overall objective, WWF will often go in the back door to work with companies behind the scenes, while other groups create the pressure by banging on the front door.”

… the U.S. political system, given its separation of powers and weak political parties (note the absence of a viable Green Party) relative to much of the rest of the developed world, appears ready-made for group influence over government decisionmaking.

Democrats “Discover” Foreign Interference in the US elections

Democrats and their allies have started blaming their election loss on alleged “Russian hacking,” and bitching about foreign interference in the US elections.  How hypocritical!

The Internet has opened American political processes for foreign interference.  Most of the foreign interference benefited extreme Left .  Starting with the Internet based organizations, such as MoveOn.org, foreign influence contributed to transformation of the old Democratic Party into its current radical shape.  The 2016 elections has been marked by the heaviest foreign meddling in the US history.  Almost all of it was in favor of the Democratic candidates.  Some of the most significant meddlers were:

  • The UN organization and its many branches
  • The Guardian, a media outlet of the British Left, partially financed by the British government

  • Greenpeace, WWF, FOE, and the rest of the European green establishment

  • The Climate Action Network with its 1,000+ foreign member organizations

  • The Quantum Group of Hedge Funds

The Democratic Party has embraced Climate Alarmism, Continue reading Democrats “Discover” Foreign Interference in the US elections

Crossroads: Energy & Climate Policy Summit

Just got back from the Crossroads: Energy & Climate Policy Summit , a climate realism conference in Washington, DC, hosted by the Heritage Foundation and co-sponsored by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

I was impressed by the number of diplomats from the European countries and the EU!  A delegate from the Embassy of France, sitting next to me, was taking notes continuously.  The world did take notice that the President-elect would not be bullied by the enviros and the UN.

That gives a hope that the Europe will shake off the yoke of climate alarmism.

NY Times retires the phrase “Climate Change Denier” (or not)

Update (an hour later): NY Times keeps tinkering with the terminology and the article headline.  Now it is “climate change denialist” (8 Dec 2016 20:50:53 EST)


NY Times seems to have stopped calling climate realists “deniers” and “doubters”.  Instead, it started using a respectful word dissenter.  Example: Trump Picks Scott Pruitt, Climate Change Dissenter, to Lead E.P.A.

Also remarkable how NY Times rewrote the title of the article from Donald Trump Picks Scott Pruitt, Ally of Fossil Fuel Industry, to Lead E.P.A. (7 Dec 2016, 15:47:29 EST) to its current version Trump Picks Scott Pruitt, Climate Change Dissenter, to Lead E.P.A. (7 Dec 2016, 18:46:58 EST) and changed the text within less than three hours, without admitting this rewrite.

The Left Publishes Fake News, Blames the Right

Few days ago, the left-stream media and Obama have raised a ruckus about “fake news,” which they blamed for their election loss.  The ruckus boils down to two allegations: a) conservatives produce fake news, and b) conservatives tend to believe fake news.  But a closer look proves both allegations wrong. Instead, misinformation is shown to be the province of the Left, and nearly indispensable part of a modern liberal education.

The ruckus started with an NPR article, We Tracked Down a Fake-News Creator In The Suburbs. Here’s What We Learned.  NPR interviewed the founder and owner of an official fake news media company Disinfomedia, Jestin Coler.  Coler is a journalist, political science major, and a self-professed liberal.  He lives in a suburb of Los Angeles. “My educational background is in political science. I’ve always enjoyed the ideas of propaganda and misinformation,” Coler said. Continue reading The Left Publishes Fake News, Blames the Right

Election Results Surprise Totalitarian Demonrats

Up to the election day, almost all polls and analytical forecasts predicted that Hillary, a candidate from the incumbent Democratic Party, would win.  Instead, Trump won with a large margin.  Republicans won both House and Senate.

This pattern is frequently observed when a ruling party persecutes opposition.  Fearing repressions, supporters of the opposition disproportionately avoid polling or claim to support the ruling party.  They express their opinion only on the election day.

RICO Complaint against Climate Alarmism

I have filed a lawsuit against Climate Action Network, a German corporation headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon, along with 39 other corporations (most of them putatively non-profit) and several “John and Jane Does” who will be identified later. The complaint alleges that all the defendants violated The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”, 18 U.S.C. § 1961-1968) by participating in the Climate Alarmism Enterprise. Specifically, it alleges a pattern of racketeering activity, including multiple counts of:

Mathematical Errors in IPCC Climate Models

In preparation of its texts, IPCC utilizes General Circulation Models (GCMs), analyzed using computers.  Such models and the way in which IPCC utilizes them, exhibit, among others, the following errors.

There is no mathematical apparatus (i.e., proven theorems) behind these models and “ensembles”.  This fact makes the whole modeling exercise useless.  This fact also makes rigorous evaluation or criticism of these models very difficult or impossible.  The following notes include assumptions that are correct for majority of the GCM models, but not necessarily for all of them.

Climate Models – the Strange Case of Missing Hardware

The General Circulation Models (GCM), alleged by IPCC to forecast climate, are computationally intensive computer programs that repetitively perform the same task: integrating specific sets of differential equations, such as the primitive equations of weather. In such situations, a normal practice is developing specialized hardware for performing that task. One example is video encoding hardware, which evolved from big boxes, making grainy and jumpy 640×480 moving pictures, to the tiny circuits inside of the CPUs of modern cell phone, producing smooth 1920×1080 full motion video.

Squeaking with one voice

Six weeks ago the former American Association for the Advancement of Science and leftstream media published a letter to Congress, repeating false claims of “scientific consensus” on indeterminate “climate change”.  The letter was allegedly signed by 31 top scientific societies “speaking with one voice on global climate change”, although American Physical Society (APS) had publicly refused to sign.  A quick survey revealed that even among the societies, listed on the letter,  many important ones did not sign it.  Some did.

Climate Alarmism is like a Deadly Virus

Climate Alarmism can be compared to the HIV virus.  After entering a society, it attacks the main defense of the society against itself and similar threats – the scientific enterprise.  After the scientific enterprise was weakened enough, the society becomes defenseless against any pathogenic agenda, alleging scientific justification.  Climate Alarmism brings with it a number of such agendas, from shutting down the national energy infrastructure to banning free speech to submitting to the UN.  America became infected in 1992 through Al Gore and Timothy Wirth.

The World Wildlife Fund, having annual income around $800M, is one of the main culprits.  “Prince” Philip was a founder and a powerful supporter of WWF for long time. (Philip was born in the Greek royal family, raised in various places, and married future Queen of the United Kingdom, who granted him the Prince title.)  In line with the Deep Ecology, one of the forces behind Climate Alarmism, Prince Philip expressed his desire to reincarnate as “a particularly deadly virus”.  Since this quote is frequently denied, a photocopy of the page where he wrote this, is presented here.

Prince Philip, a founder and patron of WWF, declares his wish to reincarnate as a particularly deadly virus to decimate humanity

Where are Scientists in Climate Alarmism?

A remarkable thing about the Climate Alarmism chorus is almost total absence of scientists in it.  For example, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) could be better described as a Union of Con Scientists.  At a closer look, it is even worse:

The UCS President is a lawyer and former environmental bureaucrat.

The UCS Executive Director is a PhD in “health policy”. Continue reading Where are Scientists in Climate Alarmism?

Climate Alarmism Research Database

Knowledge is power, especially in this Era of Political Repression.  A useful database of IPCC and climate alarmism is published by Peter Bobroff,  ex Royal Australian Navy Commander. The website describes itself:

This is the place for basic research. There are no articles or stories here. You can look up an individual person, country, organisation, email etc. There are also much broader comparison tables from many view points. Continue reading Climate Alarmism Research Database

Keeling was Defunded for Higher Primary Production

Charles David Keeling (1928-2005) became famous for setting up a worldwide network of CO2 measurement stations that demonstrated annual increases of CO2 in the air.  The iconic Keeling curve, representing CO2 concentrations since 1958, is Exhibit One in every climate-related presentation, and one of the very few accurate and reliable datasets in climatology.  Ralph Keeling, his son, is continuing his work as CO2 Program Director in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD.

Senator Whitehouse acquires another Fishy Income Stream

The wife of Senator Whitehouse, notorious for his calls to lynch climate skeptics, Sandra Whitehouse, PhD, got a new job as the Chief Scientific Officer of AltaSea (Los Angeles, CA), according to this press release.  She will “work” on a consulting basis.  Apparently, Sandra Whitehouse can hold a number of such “consulting jobs” in the same time. One of them is a Senior Advisor to Ocean Conservancy (Washington, DC).  According to Ocean Conservancy’s 990 form for a year ending in June 2015, she received $235,000 for something called “Marine Spatial Planning“.  In five years ending in June 2015 she received $980,800 just from Ocean Conservancy.

To Bill Gates: Fighting Malaria without DDT is like believing Climatism without LSD

Bill Gates embraced climate alarmism some time ago, and now makes its promotion his priority.

This is comparable with his confusion about malaria. The Gates Foundation is spending huge amounts of money, trying to eradicate malaria without using DDT. Apparently, Bill Gates believes that malaria-bearing mosquitoes became resistant to DDT and does not know that DDT was withdrawn from anti-malaria use by the World Health Organization after 1976, after it was banned in the US in 1972, in response to the environmental alarm.

In 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-MD) and assorted radicals declared April 22 as Earth Day, apparently to celebrate the hundredth birthday of Vladimir Lenin – a bloodthirsty revolutionary, the founder of the Soviet Union, and a revered icon of the Left until 1992. It is long overdue to end this travesty and establish Earth Day on some other day, and in honor of somebody more deserving. Let us celebrate Earth Day on March 25, in honor of Norman Borlaug.

Sometimes the obsession for control of the climate got a bit out of hand, as in the Aztec state, where the local scientific/religious establishment of the year 1500 had long since announced that the debate was over and that at least 20,000 human sacrifices a year were needed to keep the sun moving, the rain falling, and to stop climate change.

Obama orders commanders to prioritize climate change

Following overt instructions from foreign entities, including at least one country in a state of war with the United States (North Korea), the Obama administration has launched an attack on the United States Armed Forces.  According to the Washington Times:

The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.

How “Climate Science” has Taken over the Science

Climate Science: Is it currently designed to answer questions?

Richard Lindzen, Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Originally published on November 29, 2008; revised on September 21, 2012. In this article Richard Lindzen (a member of the National Academy of Sciences and seven other scientific societies and academies), lifts the veil on the internal workings of American scientific institutions to show their capture by climate alarmism prior to 2008, and he mentions some individual culprits by their names.  Examples (emphasis and links are mine throughout the article):

Climate Change compared to Invasion of Aliens from Space

Andrew Solow, a statistician at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, has said of the contention that we will be too late if we wait to do something about the greenhouse effect until we are sure of it: “This argument applies equally to an invasion of aliens from space.” (The whole paragraph is from NY Books Review, 1989)

Global Warming: How to approach the science.
Richard Lindzen. Testimony at House Subcommittee on Science and Technology hearing on A Rational Discussion of Climate Change: the Science, the Evidence, the Response. November 17, 2010. Selected quotes, emphasis is mine.

“In my long experience with the issue of global warming, I’ve come to realize that the vast majority of laymen including policymakers do not actually know what the scientific debate is about. In this testimony, I will try to clarify this. Some of you may, for example, be surprised to hear that the debate is not about whether it is warming or not or even about whether man is contributing some portion of whatever is happening. I’ll explain this in this testimony. Unfortunately, some part of the confusion is explicitly due to members of the scientific community whose role as partisans has dominated any other role they may be playing.”

Richard Lindzen on IPCC and climate dispute, 2001

From Testimony of Richard S. Lindzen before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on 2 May 2001

“I have been involved in climate and climate related research for over thirty years during which time I have held professorships at the University of Chicago, Harvard University and MIT. I am a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and the author or coauthor of over 200 papers and books. I have also been a participant in the proceedings of the IPCC (the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). The questions I wish to address are the following: What can we agree on and what are the implications of this agreement? What are the critical areas of disagreement? What is the origin of popular perceptions? I hope it will become clear that the designation, ‘skeptic,’ simply confuses an issue where popular perceptions are based in significant measure on misuse of language as well as misunderstanding of science. Indeed, the identification of some scientists as ‘skeptics’ permits others to appear ‘mainstream’ while denying views held by the so-called ‘skeptics’ even when these views represent the predominant views of the field.”

Analogy to the Paradoxical Origin of Climate Alarmism

The following parable accompanies my article The Paradoxical Origin of Climate Alarmism in American Thinker.

Once upon a time there was a healthy, wealthy, and generous man. Let’s call him Sam. Sam is honest and brave, but slightly naïve and hypochondriac. One day, Sam found a small discolored spot on his skin. He went to the doctor, who examined the spot and told Sam he was fine, but that he should do annual checkups.

What is rising – Sea Level or Waterfront Prices?

Do Democratic Party supporters believe in Climatism themselves? I mean, believe strongly enough to invest their own money based on the so-called “settled science”? An obligatory Climatist belief is that “climate change” will cause a rapid sea level rise and the flooding of low-lying lands, including most beachfront or waterfront properties. Another alarmist claim is an impending increase in hurricanes and storms. Since the majority of owners of waterfront properties are either Democrats or RINOs, if they are true believers they should be selling, and the prices should be falling, sinking well below the prices of similar non-waterfront properties. A house is a valuable investment, but a flooded and storm ravaged one loses all its value. But the real trend is exactly the opposite. Continue reading What is rising – Sea Level or Waterfront Prices?

“Thirteen Agencies, One Vision”

Can you guess whose slogan that might be?  Burundi Council of Ministers — wrong answer. A band of hallucinating patients in a psychiatric hospital — wrong again.

This is the United States Global Change Research Program! Its full slogan: Thirteen Agencies, One Vision: Empower the Nation with Global Change Science.   Among the participating thirteen agencies are the Department of Defense, NASA, NSF, the State Department, the Department of Energy, and the Department of the Interior.

“Thirteen Agencies, One Delusion” would be more accurate.

Climate Alarmism and North Korea

A talk that retired Rear Admiral David Titley gave at the Senate hearing Data or Dogma (where he represented the Dogma) brought my attention to a dark entity, misleadingly calling itself the “American Security Project.” Within this project, Titley is charged with promoting climate alarmism and forcing the UN climate consensus on America.

Some parts of the ASP’s website make it look more like the North Korea Security Project. One article, which appeared after another North Korean nuclear test, is an outright advocacy for North Korea:

Basically, it is incredibly unlikely that North Korea will use its nuclear weapons prior to the outbreak of a new Korean war, which the country has no interest in starting.

Incredibly unlikely? Has no interest in starting a war? Are we talking about the same North Korea? In 2010, North Korea sank the South Korean vessel Cheonan and shelled Greater Yeonpyeong island, killing 50 men in both incidents. In 2013, North Korea threatened to launch a “pre-emptive” nuclear strike on the US. If that is not “interest in starting a war”, then what is? Continue reading Climate Alarmism and North Korea

Obama vs the People, 2016

Is it normal for the President of the United States of America to threaten the People with military force? In his State of the Union speech, Obama said:

Look, if anybody still wants to dispute the science around climate change, have at it. You will be pretty lonely, because you’ll be debating our military … and 200 nations around the world who agree it’s a problem and intend to solve it. (link)

He said this only a few hours after allowing Iran to capture two Navy boats and their crew, to take the Navy sailors prisoners and compel a female captive to wear a hijab, and to force them all to kneel before Iranian National Guardsmen.

I know that before Obama, it was other way around: the armed forces defended America against foreign threats, instead of being pawns to “debate” their own citizens. This “debate offer” is something from the repertoire of African dictators, but even Obama’s fellow dictators do not threaten their subjects so overtly on behalf of foreign powers. And I doubt that many of them use weasel words like “carbon pollution.” Carbon dioxide in the air is not pollution, but plants’ nutrients, and of course carbon constitutes most of the dry mass of a human body.

Will this horror end after the November 2016 elections? Judging by the current trends, I am not so sure there will be elections at all.

Next on Wall of Shame: Harvard University

In a few years Harvard University will wish that its President would not have written that.

“Worldwide scientific consensus has clearly established that climate change poses a serious threat to our future—and increasingly to our present. Universities like ours have produced much of the research supporting that consensus, as well as many of the emerging ideas helping us to begin confronting that challenge. …” (and so on, almost 1,500 words)

See reply by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley: Harvard’s Faustian bargain dooms it to irrelevance.

“Climate Science”, appropriately measured in Teraflops

Update: our most powerful supercomputer, currently Titan Cray XK7, capable of 27 Petaflops, is also surrendered to run climate models now!  Not surprising that we are trailing China (Tianhe-2). On the topic of the computing power: its increase cannot help climate models.  Solutions for Navier–Stokes equations are unstable for all but very simple special cases.

Originally published on 10/21/2015: inspired by this press-release from Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, boasting a new super-computer capable of 212 Teraflops, I’ve decided that a Teraflop is an excellent unit to measure the otherwise countless failures of the “climate scientists.”  (1 Teraflop = 1 trillion flops.)

Carbon Cycle Research Update

The worldwide CO2 emissions in the last 10-15 years have been underestimated by 8-15% because of the data fabrication, caused by the IPCC process. See Notes on FAO-FRA 2010. The implication is that all physical models of the carbon cycle that agree with the official data are wrong. That is, one more time wrong.

Airborne CO2 Attribution: 66% is non-Western

Call it “historical responsibility” or “historical merit”, but the fact is: 66% of the surplus CO2 in the air has been released by non-Western countries.

The re-estimate is based on the admission of underreporting emissions by China and scattered indications of higher than expected underreporting of deforestation by the developing countries. See original Atmospheric CO2 Change front page.
