The fall of Communism and Our Unfinished Work

Joel says it very well.

Joel D. Hirst's Blog

It was twenty-five years ago today that the cold war came to an end. Communism as a political and economic model was finally bankrupt; morally and spiritually destroyed from within as it succumbed to the inevitable results of its unworkable ideas.  A political scheme that had started with great fanfare, built upon the utopias of the dreamers had ended not in an explosion but with a sputter.  The empire was not brought down by a great war or an epic betrayal.  Instead it came to its end at the hands of nameless faceless bureaucrats, stale day-old bread and colorless prison camps.  Even turning their countries into the greatest slave-labor camps in the history of the world was not enough to save their project.  One day the factories just stopped and the beleaguered worker-slaves, still hunched and pale from their labors stumbled into the streets to face the bright light of…

Crumbing consensus on AGW

“More than 1000 peer-reviewed papers published over the last 3 years expose climate alarmism as fake science.” Harvard astrophysicist Dr. Willie Soon said, “I’m not surprised by the large number or empirical evidence that rejects the CO2 dangerous global warming alarmism. This sort of literature review ought to put the sort of biased, if not anti-science, reports by the UN IPCC to shame.”

“Kenneth Richard published his list of 500 climate catastrophe skeptic papers appearing in scientific journals in 2016 alone. It is the latest addition to the 282 papers published in 2015, and the 248 papers published in 2014, bringing the total number of peer-reviewed papers published over the past three years to more than 1000.”

Retired NASA engineers and scientists reject global warming theory

“We, a group of retired and highly experienced engineers and scientists from the Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle and International Space Station eras, have volunteered our time and effort conducting an objective, independent assessment of the AGW alarm and reality of the actual threat. We have reviewed hundreds of reports and technical papers relevant to the subject matter, and discussed key issues with experts on both sides of this controversy. ” 

The Right Climate Stuff (TRCS)

“The TRCS solution  accurately correlates with measured empirical global temperature data, and shows that global temperature is not significantly affected by increases in atmospheric CO2.”

338 German scientists and engineers sign open protest letter on climate to Angela Merkel

The list of German scientists and engineers is up to 338 signers to the open letter to Angela Merkel protesting her position on climate. Here is the letter in German and the list of signers.

Here is a translation of the letter:

Open Letter – Climate Change (translated from German)


Frau Bundeskanzerlin Dr. Angela Merkel

Willy-Brandt-Strabe 1

10557 Berlin

Dipl. Ing. Michael Limburg
14476 Grob Glienicke
Richard-Wagner-Str. 5a


Grob Glienicke 26.07.09

To the attention of the Honorable Madam Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany

When one studies history, one learns that the development of societies is often determined by a zeitgeist, which at times had detrimental or even horrific results for humanity. History tells us time and again that political leaders often have made poor decisions because they followed the advice of advisors who were incompetent or ideologues and failed to recognize it in time. Moreover evolution also shows that natural development took a wide variety of paths with most of them leading to dead ends. No era is immune from repeating the mistakes of the past.

Politicians often launch their careers using a topic that allows them to stand out. Earlier as Minister of the Environment you legitimately did this as well by assigning a high priority to climate change. But in doing so you committed an error that has since led to much damage, something that should have never happened, especially given the fact you are a physicist. You confirmed that climate change is caused by human activity and have made it a primary objective to implement expensive strategies to reduce the so-called greenhouse gas CO2. You have done so without first having a real discussion to check whether early temperature measurements and a host of other climate related facts even justify it.

A real comprehensive study, whose value would have been absolutely essential, would have shown, even before the IPCC was founded, that humans have had no measurable effect on global warming through CO2 emissions. Instead the temperature fluctuations have been within normal ranges and are due to natural cycles. Indeed the atmosphere has not warmed since 1998 – more than 10 years, and the global temperature has even dropped significantly since 2003.

Not one of the many extremely expensive climate models predicted this. According to the IPCC, it was supposed to have gotten steadily warmer, but just the opposite has occurred.

More importantly, there’s a growing body of evidence showing anthropogenic CO2 plays no measurable role. Indeed CO2’s capability to absorb radiation is almost exhausted by today’s atmospheric concentrations. If CO2 did indeed have an effect and all fossil fuels were burned, then additional warming over the long term would in fact remain limited to only a few tenths of a degree.

The IPCC had to have been aware of this fact, but completely ignored it during its studies of 160 years of temperature measurements and 150 years of determined CO2 levels. As a result the IPCC has lost its scientific credibility. The main points on this subject are included in the accompanying addendum.

In the meantime, the belief of climate change, and that it is manmade, has become a pseudo-religion. Its proponents, without thought, pillory independent and fact-based analysts and experts, many of whom are the best and brightest of the international scientific community. Fortunately in the internet it is possible to find numerous scientific works that show in detail there is no anthropogenic CO2 caused climate change. If it was not for the internet, climate realists would hardly be able to make their voices heard. Rarely do their critical views get published.

The German media has sadly taken a leading position in refusing to publicize views that are critical of anthropogenic global warming. For example, at the second International Climate Realist Conference on Climate in New York last March, approximately 800 leading scientists attended, some of whom are among the world’s best climatologists or specialists in related fields. While the US media and only the Wiener Zeitung (Vienna daily) covered the event, here in Germany the press, public television and radio shut it out. It is indeed unfortunate how our media have developed – under earlier dictatorships the media were told what was not worth reporting. But today they know it without getting instructions.

Do you not believe, Madam Chancellor, that science entails more than just confirming a hypothesis, but also involves testing to see if the opposite better explains reality? We strongly urge you to reconsider your position on this subject and to convene an impartial panel for the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, one that is free of ideology, and where controversial arguments can be openly debated. We the undersigned would very much like to offer support in this regard.

Respectfully yours,

La Cava

“Let’s put this amount of energy in perspective. If we all turned off all our appliances and went and lived in caves, and then devoted every coal, nuclear, gas, hydro, wind and solar power plant to just heating the ocean, it would take a breathtaking 32,000 years to heat the ocean by just this 1˚C!”

by Mark Imisides, industrial chemist

And the probable result of such an experiment would be a slightly more tropical climate? In return for living in a cave?  Can you please point me to those caves? I want to get as far away as possible.

It just might be your man…

Scientists are worried that in 100 years, the effect on global temperature might almost be measurable, if the USA pulls out of the Paris Agreement.

Climate budget cuts are smart management, not an attack on science

At least 18 U.S. federal agencies administer climate change activities, costing at least $77 billion between 2008 and 2013, yet they do not have a climate model that works.

Climate models versus climate observations

Testimony to Congress: “When  the  “scientific method”  is  applied  to  the  output  from  climate  models  of  the  IPCC  AR5,  specifically  the bulk atmospheric temperature trends since 1979 (a key variable with a strong and obvious theoretical response to increasing GHGs in this period ), I demonstrate that the consensus of  the  models  fails the  test to  match  the  real – world observations by  a  significant  margin. As such, the average of the models is considered to be untruthful in representing the recent decades  of  climate  variation  and  change,  and  thus  would  be  inappropriate  for  use  in predicting future changes in the climate or for related policy decisions.”  ~ U.S. House Committee on Science, Space & Technology, 29 Mar 2017, Testimony of John R. Christy
Professor of Atmospheric Science, Alabama. State Climatologist.  University of Alabama in Huntsville.

A shoe string string theory

A shoe string string theory
The leading and current theory in physics is string theory, a string which connects multiple dimensional realms. Despite that virtually all professors of physics are students of string theory, there is no good evidence to support the theory. It’s all theory and nothing but theory. So far no way is known to test it.
Stepping or flying through a doorway, one moment in one dimension and in the next moment arriving in another dimension, but that moment seemed a lifetime when you were in it. That’s string theory.
Your task, if you choose to accept it, is to figure out why you took that step.
