Saturday's "climate march" in Washington turns into another wrongheaded farce that has little to do with climate

The “peoples climate march” in Washington is turning into another zoo like last weekend’s “March for Science”. Even full-on warmists are panning it, and it hasn’t even started yet. Looking at the lineup, it’s easy to see why: To me, it looks like a socialist parade with a dose of gender anger thrown in. Some comments…

Time to defund the weather-forecasting rent-seekers

But that implies it could be fixed by imposing the same ruinous terms on developing countries—which would in fact just spread the damage. The real…

Oops, Warmists just lost the Antarctic peninsula – it is now cooling

A warming trend of 0.32 °C/decade during 1979–1997 to a cooling trend of − 0.47 °C/decade during 1999–2014. Remember the much ballyhooed paper that made the cover of Nature, Steig et al, “Warming of the Antarctic ice-sheet surface since the 1957 International Geophysical Year”, Nature, Jan 22, 2009 that included some conspicuously errant Mannian math from the master of making…
