Dr. Richard Lindzen’s talk at EIKE

Dr. Richard Lindzen of MIT speaks at EIKE in Germany on Models vs. Measurements in April 2014, the video was just recently made available on YouTube. His conclusion: Real science in any case it is not what many climate modelers present as science. It’s more a kind of religion. Watch the video lecture below, it…

Lindzen libeled by Nuccitelli

Guest essay by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley Dana Nuccitelli of Unskeptical Science has written a characteristically spiteful piece in the Guardian about Professor Lindzen. The piece constitutes a grave libel. Britain, still to some extent a free country, is one up on the U.S. in allowing anyone – even a public figure – to sue…

Lindzen: Understanding The IPCC AR5 Climate Assessment

Guest essay by Dr. Richard Lindzen Each IPCC report seems to be required to conclude that the case for an international agreement to curb carbon dioxide has grown stronger. That is to say the IPCC report (and especially the press release accompanying the summary) is a political document, and as George Orwell noted, political language…

Warmist Bob Ward argues that former IPCC lead author Richard Lindzen isn’t qualified to talk about climate science

Lindzen on getting the “special treatment” for publishing papers

Lindzen-Choi ‘Special Treatment’: Is Peer Review Biased Against Nonalarmist Climate Science? by Chip Knappenberger [Editor’s note: The following material was supplied to us by Dr. Richard Lindzen as an example of how research that counters climate-change alarm receives special treatment in the scientific publication process as compared with results that reinforce the consensus view. In this case,…

Professor Richard Lindzen’s Congressional Testimony

The House Testimony on global warming yesterday had a number of excellent presentations, and you can watch the entire video here.

Lindzen: “Earth is never in equilibrium”

This is an essay professor Richard Lindzen of MIT sent to the Free Lance-Star in Fredericksburg, Va for their Opinion Page in March, and was recently republished in the Janesville, WI Gazette Extra where it got notice from many WUWT readers. It is well worth the read. – Anthony To a significant extent, the issue…

Lindzen on climate science advocacy and modeling – “at this point, the models seem to be failing”

This is a letter professor Richard Lindzen of MIT sent to the Boston Globe and was published today. It is well worth the read. KERRY EMANUEL’S Feb. 15 op-ed “Climate changes are proven fact’’ is more advocacy than assessment. Vague terms such as “consistent with,’’ “probably,’’ and “potentially’’ hardly change this. Certainly climate change is…

Lindzen on Climate Hysteria

Resisting climate hysteria by Richard S. Lindzen on Quadrant Online July 26, 2009 A Case Against Precipitous Climate Action The notion of a static, unchanging climate is foreign to the history of the earth or any other planet with a fluid envelope. The fact that the developed world went into hysterics over changes in global…

New paper from Lindzen demonstrates low climate sensitivity with observational data

“…ERBE data appear to demonstrate a climate sensitivity of about 0.5°C which is easily distinguished from sensitivities given by models.” On the determination of climate feedbacks from ERBE data Richard S.

2°C or not 2°C–that is the question

This note by The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley uses methods and data exclusively from mainstream climate science to constrain the interval of 21st-century global warming. In 2009 the Copenhagen climate summit asserted, on little evidence, that global warming of 2 C° compared with pre-industrial temperature [equivalent to 1.1 C° above today] would be dangerous. The…

El Niño begins to curtail the Pause

Global temperature update: no warming for 18 years 6 months By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley For 222 months, since January 1997, there has been no global warming at all (Fig. 1).

I only ask because I want to know

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley I propose to raise a question about the Earth’s energy budget that has perplexed me for some years. Since further evidence in relation to my long-standing question is to hand, it is worth asking for answers from the expert community at WUWT. A.E. Housman, in his immortal parody of the…

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I got to thinking about how I could gain more understanding of the daily air temperature cycles in the tropics. I decided to look at what happens when the early morning (midnight to 5:00 AM) of a given day is cooler than usual, versus what happens when the early morning…

Twin peaks – twin prevarications

Supposedly record-high temperature and carbon dioxide levels supposedly bring record chaos Guest essay by Paul Driessen and Tom Tamarkin A recent NOAA article is just what Doctor Doom ordered. It claims the 18-year “hiatus” in rising planetary temperatures isn’t really happening. (The “pause” followed a 20-year modest temperature increase, which followed a prolonged cooling period.)…

Despite attempts to erase it globally, “the pause” still exists in pristine US surface temperature data

As readers know, the recent paper Karl et al. 2015, written by the head of the National Climatic Data Center now NCEI, went to great lengths to try to erase “the pause” from the surface temperature record using a series of adjustments. Those adjustments are deemed unacceptable and criticized by some climate scientists, such as…

NOAA Study Takes World ‘by Storm': No Global Warming Pause!

By E. Calvin Beisner, Ph.D. That’s how most of the media are treating a new study, anyway. Even the Wall Street Journal ran a news piece titled “Study Finds No Pause in Global Warming.” The source? “Possible artifacts of data bias in the recent global surface warming hiatus,” published this week in Science, by long-time global warming alarmist…

Patrick J. Michaels Richard S. Lindzen Paul C. Knappenberger A new paper published today by Science, from Thomas Karl and several co-authors[1], that removes the “hiatus” in global warming prompts many serious scientific questions. The main claim[2] by the authors that they have uncovered a significant recent warming trend is dubious. The significance level they…
