Announcing: The First WUWT Climate Change Essay Contest

That’s right, we are having an essay contest, and there will be cash prizes for the winners. But I’ll need your help.  As many of you know, over the past two years Google has slowly squeezed out most of our ad revenue.  So, before we officially announce our essay contest, we need to first raise the funds so we can offer meaningful cash prizes.  That means folks like you need to help.  Please go to our donation page and contribute as much as you can.

Despite the frequent accusations from climate alarmists and journalists, we never receive a dime from the fossil fuel industry, and Google has made certain that our ad revenue fails to cover the cost of publishing WUWT.  In fact, now they have doubled down, and announced they are going to cut off any website that publishes any doubt about catastrophic man-made global warming. See this story: Google, YouTube to prohibit ads and monetization on climate denial content

We believe the upcoming essay contest will help to engage a younger set of climate realists and gain more coverage for a rational view of climate change.  So, let me thank you in advance for your help.  Please donate now.

Here is the contest in a nutshell, which we plan to officially announce November 1st.

Topic: Is there really a climate crisis?

Write the best arguments against the theory of man-made catastrophic global warming that would convince your neighbors that there is no climate crisis.

Entry categories:

  • General Public: Any reader who does not fall into the two categories below
  • Professionals: Scientists, engineers, graduate students, doctoral candidates
  • Students: College undergrads, high school students, and below

Cash Prizes:

  • First prize for each of the above categories:  To be determined once we have concluded our fundraising, but hopefully over $1000
  • Second prize/runner up for each of the above categories: To be determined once we have concluded our fundraising.

Contest Rules Summary:

  • Open to everyone, see categories.
  • Essays must question the validity of the theory of man-made catastrophic global warming.
  • All entries must be submitted electronically.
  • 1500 words or less, not including citations.
  • Graphics and tables are welcome.
  • Citations are encouraged.
  • Winners can remain anonymous, but must be verified by WUWT staff.
  • Winning essays will be announced and published January 10th, 2022

All winning essays, judged by a panel of climate experts and journalists, will be published here, some non-winning essays may also be published.

A nationwide press-release will also be made to media outlets announcing the winning essays and their authors, if they choose not to be anonymous. I expect these essays and the winners will be picked up by many media outlets.

We will officially open the contest to entries on Monday, November 1st by announcing the contest page. At that time, the final official rules and format requirements will be published.

In the meantime, we encourage all WUWT readers to pitch in with funding for the cash prizes. 

Just click on the big “Donate” button on the right sidebar.  Or, this link.  It is critical that we help the world to understand that the sky is not falling.

It is critical that we help the world to understand that an in-depth understanding of climate science fails to support the theory of catastrophic man-made global warming aka the “climate crisis”.

Thanks for your help, it is vitally important.

Anthony Watts

P.S. This post will stay at the top of WUWT through Monday morning to get maximum exposure.

Rule clarification please:

  • Professionals: Scientists, engineers, graduate students, doctoral candidates

What if you are one of those but in a field entirely unrelated to climatology? I assume one would be in this category. But does that mean one has to reveal more of one’s personal data?

Or would you take it on faith that someone is Professional or General?

I think it would be helpful if the winning articles were peer reviewed before publication. Warmists would love to ridicule WUWT articles and if they contain inaccuracies they would be easy targets.

peer review is an editorial process of correction and revision. The writer should simply have someone(s) they trust and know has a good understanding of the topics read the m/s and give them critical comments before submission to WUWT.
IMO, the submission made to this contest must be in final form, including spell checked, grammar checked etc.

Allan MacRae’s scientific predictions on both these subjects are infinitely more accurate than the mainstream narratives, which have been 100% false and baselessly alarmist to date.

It is now obvious that the summer case spike and hundreds of thousands of deaths in North America attributed to the Covid-19 virus were actually caused by the Covid-19 “vaccines”.

The Covid-19 “vaccines” are kill shots and the “vaccine mandates” are a death sentence.

I first published this hypothesis in June 2021 or earlier
It is especially egregious for governments and institutions to be pushing the Covid-19 injections on school children and young adults, teachers, health care workers, etc. Children and healthy adults are at very low risk of severe harm from the Covid-19 virus, but the “vaccines” are dangerous..

Vaccine-caused injuries and deaths can be crudely categorized as follows:

Short Term: Immediate severe adverse reactions including deaths from the injections occur with hours or days of the injections and harm more than one in 1000. Myocarditis and pericarditis are already happening, particularly to teenage boys. Heart muscle does not heal.

Medium-Term: It is hypothesized that more prevalent adverse reactions to the “vaccines” due to Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (ADE) will occur during this winter flu season.

Long-Term: It is hypothesized that much more prevalent adverse reactions to the “vaccines” due to damage to the circulatory system, leading to loss of circulatory blockages, heart attacks etc. The D-dimer test of the vaccinated will provide an early warming of future harm.

“78% of the deaths in the U.K. are among the ‘double-vaccinated.”
– Canadian Physician Dr. Mark Trozzi

“If we vaccinate our children the deaths we’ve seen in adults so far we will now see in children.”
– Canadian Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Alexander

“I think we’ve completely suppressed any form of treatment or help to people in order to promote the vaccine. Now the vaccine doesn’t work completely and it’s, frankly, dangerous. We’re down to almost one message: Take the jab or else … It’s the scariest time to be an American, and thank goodness half of Americans didn’t take it.
We’re going to have to see what this is going to look like. I think the next month or so is going to be incredibly interesting and it’s going to be ominous.”
– American Cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough

“In the end, i predict that we’re going to see mass illnesses and deaths among people who normally would have wonderful lives ahead of them.”
– German Microbiologist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi  

“Hope to be wrong, rarely am.”
Regards to all, Allan MacRae, B.A.Sc.(Eng.), M.Eng.

Ok let’s start and finish with your references. Bitchute is a known far right conspiracy website. It has absolutely no credibility in any sense in the medical world. If you are feeding from that trough, then you are poisoning your mind. Lord knows why you would think anything out of that site could be truth.
Think about it for a second. Add some common sense. If the death rate was as your quote, families would be loosing loved ones, friends would be loosing friends, colleagues would be loosing colleagues. And these people would be screaming to the press, who would love to run stories like these. Mate, it’s just not happening. All the stories you hear are from the ” I know someone” brigade. It’s never from direct sources. And if it is they are “always” anti vaxers who are clearly lying.

Listen moron.

1) Bitchute is not a website but a video hostng service

2) It does not matter at all wether bitchute is a far right or YouTube a far left site,it’s about the quality of the content
(hard to ex plain this to a moron who can not rell the message from the messanger)

3) even then it has nothing to do with bitchute or YouTube as the content is made from a content creator and not bitchute / YouTubes fault / achievement

4)bitchute has far less censorship than YouTube.At YouTube i can’t even comment on topics like slavery in islam,though i was born as a muslim.It gets autodeleted.
If you are fine with fascist youtube
bitchute should be no problem for you

5) if you belong to the progressive AGW cult you are the last person on earth to complain about bitchutes standards,
as you spit in the face of integrity and truth,
by going along with failed predictions,name calling,cancel culture,intimidation,mob culture etc.
Then you have no rights to complain.

As an unvaxxed person, maybe it’s OK that I cannot fly commercial airlines. (sarc/off)

October 12, 2021
Vaxxed Delta Pilot Dies In-Flight; Southwest Flights Have Mass Cancellations (
Reports of hundreds of canceled Southwest flights have been met with all kinds of excuses, and Stew Peters says somebody’s lying.
It’s not bad weather, like Southwest claims, he says. And, it’s not FAA problems either, because they say there haven’t been any air traffic control problems that would cause massive flight cancellations, despite reports that air traffic control agents walked off the job in Jacksonville, Florida, in protest of vaccine mandates. So what is it? Other airlines didn’t have mass cancellations.
Peters says it’s probably the vaccine mandates that Southwest just laid down for all personnel — and, he says, “there are reports that pilots are joining the resistance as well” even though the pilots’ union denies it.
Adding to the scandal are reports of a Delta pilot who died in-flight within the last 10 days. The co-pilot said he just suddenly died. The co-pilot also shared that the pilot said he’d just gotten his second COVID shot a few days earlier.
“It’s much bigger than people think,” the co-pilot allegedly said. Not only that flights are being diverted due to pilots with chest pains. A passenger with chest pains forced an emergency landing, too. A Seattle-based pilot was found dead on his floor from an embolism; flight attendants are not returning to active duty in “droves” following their shots; two were found dead after their shots. Plus, seven Atlanta-based flight attendants have already had breakthrough infections.
A vaccinated pilot got a breakthrough infection and died of kidney failure. And the reports just keep coming in, with the airlines keeping their communications sealed. So what’s happening here? “A pilot is dead and the media completely whitewashes the whole thing,” Peters says.

I published in June 2021 that the vaccines are causing the summer case spike, not the virus. I’d rather be wrong. Told you so.

Why Are More People Dying From Heart Disease? (

Using data from the U.K.’s Government Statistical Service, diagnostic pathologist Clare Craig has found that excess deaths in the U.K. for the week ending September 10, 2021, are showing an alarming increase in heart disease mortality. Specifically, there were:24% more heart failure deaths than baseline
19% ischaemic heart disease
16% cerebrovascular disease (strokes)
18% other circulatory diseases
Why is this happening? she asks. Blogger and political analyst Mike Whitney provides some disturbing answers. “The vaccines are an attack on the body’s critical infrastructure, the vascular system, and particularly the thin tapestry of cells that line the walls of the blood vessels,” Whitney says. “The vaccines trigger bleeding, blood clots and autoimmune disease.”
And, just in case someone counters with the idea that most people aren’t suffering with heart problems after their shots, Whitney shoots back, “the impact is likely to be just as devastating in the long-run …when antibodies attach to spike-producing endothelial cells on vessel walls following vaccine administration, activated complement proteins can be expected attach to the endothelial cells, and perforate their cell membranes … [and will create] a catastrophic microvascular injury syndrome mediated by activation of complement.”
Summarizing, he says this means “the vaccine creates a situation where your body viciously attacks your own circulatory system generating blood clots and leaky blood vessels. Do you think you can live with a damaged vascular system? Do you think you will enjoy a long and happy life with an immune system that is programed to attack and kill healthy cells that now produce the pathogenic “spike protein”? If so, then for how long; how long do you think you can survive that type of internal warfare? 2 years? 5 years? 10 years?”
In other words, those who have taken the shots and not reported any adverse events yet have only to wait a matter of time and then it will hit them, too.

More falsehoods from Simon.
Israel is earlier that every other country in the Covid-19 injection timeline. What happens in Israel will happen to us next.
The Covid-19 “vaccines” are the primary cause of the recent illnesses and deaths – not the virus. Told you so June 2021.
October 13, 2021
·     A recent report details a SARS-CoV-2 Delta outbreak in an Israeli hospital where 238 out of 248 (96%) of the exposed patients and staff had been fully vaccinated with Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine
·     Of the 238 fully vaccinated individuals, 39 (16%) were infected, as were three of the 10 unvaccinated individuals who got exposed
·     While all of the sickened staff recovered, five infected patients died and nine turned into severe or critical cases. All of the dead and severe/critical cases were fully vaccinated. Two unvaccinated patients that got infected only had mild illness
·     This outbreak tells us that the COVID shots cannot create herd immunity. It also suggests vaccinated people may be more prone to serious and lethal infection than the unvaccinated
·     Of 41,552 hospitalized patients in the U.S., 73% of the unvaccinated, 71% of the partially vaccinated and 72% of the fully vaccinated received a diagnosis of COVID-like illness (CLI) between January 1, 2021, and June 22, 2021

Truth. If you are vaccinated you can still get covid.
Truth. If you are vaccinated your chances of ending up in hospital are (in NZ anyway) 130 times less than if you are unvaccinated.
The vaccines could potentially save your life. Being unvaccinated puts you are far greater risk. It really is simple maths.

Although some of the technical material in this treatise is above my pay grade, I can fully agree with the Summary (below).
Everything our health authorities have done has made Covid-19 worse – from the economy-destroying lockdowns, masking and distancing, to harmful “stay at home until you’re dying” protocols, to the ignoring of simple, effective treatments such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Melatonin, Quercetin and Zinc and the suppression of Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin and Herd Immunity, to the obsessive drug-pushing of toxic-and-ineffective experimental vaccines, all point to a sinister motive.
As I’ve published before about the false climate-and-energy crisis, “No rational person or group could be this obtuse for this long – they know they are lying; they’ve been lying since the very beginning.”
Regards, Allan

  • COVID-19 is a blood and blood vessel disease. SARS-CoV-2 infects the lining of human blood vessels, causing them to leak into the lungs.
  • Current treatment protocols (e.g. invasive ventilation) are actively harmful to patients, accelerating oxidative stress and causing severe VILI (ventilator-induced lung injuries). The continued use of ventilators in the absence of any proven medical benefit constitutes mass murder.
  • Existing countermeasures are inadequate to slow the spread of what is an aerosolized and potentially wastewater-borne virus, and constitute a form of medical theater.
  • Various non-vaccine interventions have been suppressed by both the media and the medical establishment in favor of vaccines and expensive patented drugs.
  • The authorities have denied the usefulness of natural immunity against COVID-19, despite the fact that natural immunity confers protection against all of the virus’s proteins, and not just one.
  • Vaccines will do more harm than good. The antigen that these vaccines are based on, SARS-CoV- 2 Spike, is a toxic protein. SARS-CoV-2 may have ADE, or antibody-dependent enhancement; current antibodies may not neutralize future strains, but instead help them infect immune cells. Also, vaccinating during a pandemic with a leaky vaccine removes the evolutionary pressure for a virus to become less lethal.
  • There is a vast and appalling criminal conspiracy that directly links both Anthony Fauci and Moderna to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
  • COVID-19 vaccine researchers are directly linked to scientists involved in brain-computer interface (“neural lace”) tech, one of whom was indicted for taking grant money from China.
  • Independent researchers have discovered mysterious nanoparticles inside the vaccines that are not supposed to be present.
  • The entire pandemic is being used as an excuse for a vast political and economic transformation of Western society that will enrich the already rich and turn the rest of us into serfs and untouchables.

Approximately 100 winter storm warnings have been issued across 4 U.S. states, where snow totals will be measured in the feet. Plus, this could be the first head-on CME strike of young Solar Cycle 25.

And I warned these delusional warmist politicians in 2013 (and 2002):

By Allan MacRae, October 31, 2013
So here is my real concern:

IF the Sun does indeed drive temperature, as I suspect, Baroness Verma, then you and your colleagues on both sides of the House may have brewed the perfect storm.

You are claiming that global cooling will NOT happen, AND you have crippled your energy systems with excessive reliance on ineffective grid-connected “green energy” schemes.

I suggest that global cooling probably WILL happen within the next decade or sooner, and Britain will get colder.

I also suggest that the IPCC and the Met Office have NO track record of successful prediction (or “projection”) of global temperature and thus have no scientific credibility.

I suggest that winter deaths will increase in the UK as cooling progresses.

I suggest that Excess Winter Mortality, the British rate of which is about double the rate in the Scandinavian countries, should provide an estimate of this unfolding tragedy.

[excerpt from today 11Oct2021]
Pervasive cold has been gripping much of the European continent, too, compounding the ongoing energy crisis.

According to the Slovenský hydrometeorologický ústav (SHMÚ) on Facebook, record cold has swept Slovakia.
Lows of -5.5C were registered in the mountain valleys, but unprecedented October cold was also noted in the East Slovak lowland. The Walnut Station, for example, logged -1.1C, while at many other stations, records have been broken, concludes the FB post.
And as with the Western U.S., the mercury is forecast to plunge even further this week.
Looking at the latest GFS runs, departures will sink some 16C below the seasonal average for many.
Here’s the picture for Italy and the Balkans on Monday, October 11:

In line with the descending cold, record snowfall threatens the higher elevations, particularly across the Alps, Scandinavia, and the northern UK:

Watch and share this very important interview. The next fear-mongering tactic coming down the pipe is a ‘wave of pediatric cases’, but in actual fact children are in no danger from Covid whatsoever.

Good News for once from Climate change people:

Well researched report from EMBER

  • Burning wood is the electricity sector’s second largest CO2 emitter after fossil gas.
  • Drax is the UK’s largest single source of CO2 emissions.
  • Drax is the EU’s third largest CO2 emitter among coal plants when biomass emissions are included.
  • These emissions are not counted in the UK’s emissions inventory – burning wood is treated as ‘carbon neutral’, despite evidence to the contrary.
  • Burning wood is a larger emitter than coal in the UK
  • Biomass industry claims burning wood is carbon-neutral, however the science disagrees
  • Drax is a top 5 CO2 emitter in Europe
  • Drax is one of Europe’s top 5 emitters of PM10 air pollution
  • Biomass generators are looking for new subsidies through BECCS – but will it deliver the negative emissions they promise?

There’s that word belief again. Younger sceptics may be out there but I don’t give much for the chances of them standing up in the neo-mediaeval 21st century with all its crazy [woke] ideologies from race and sex to climate change and calling the alarmists out.

Heretics are burned at the stake in public on Twitter etc. They are cast out as unpersons to all but fellow sceptics. Who is unaware of that?

I really do hope you’re right and it does indeed galvanise younger people. But having seen XR and IB etc I do have my doubts.

All the best with it.

Surely by preventing anyone who doubts CO2 is the cause of dangerous global warming from using their websites, Google is acting as a publisher and it therefore subject to the same rules and laws as any other publisher?

October 8, 2021 8:37 am

The UK’s Ehergy omni-shambles are getting worse
“Omni Energy switched unprofitable customers without express consent
With wholesale prices at record highs, customers are paying less for gas than suppliers can buy it, meaning households that use a lot of energy are costing suppliers such as Omni large amounts of money. Since the beginning of August, a total of 10 suppliers have fallen into insolvency, and Omni is hoping to avoid the same fate.
Ofgem, the energy regulator, does not permit suppliers to switch customers without their consent, except as part of a takeover of all or part of a business.”

Only three months ago ‘households that use a lot of energy’ were Omny Energy’s most profitable customers. So much for loyalty to the good customers !

Perhaps you could set it up as a formal debate. Potential essayists apply and you allocate them to make either the pro or con case for global warming. The allocations should be blind, applicants treated anonymously. It’s a pity such debates are out of fashion. There’s nothing that quite makes you refine your own argument than to make the case against it. Of course, there’s always the risk that you’ll change your mind. However it would be really good to have some global warmists present the case against this view.

(Just kidding – but they did represent Nazis back in the 60s.)

I’ll donate a bit. I actually wrote an applicable essay 15 years or so ago, triggered by Sam Donaldson stating for a fact that the world had never been hotter and was only getting worse fast. It persuaded the few who read it, but I’ve seen better over the years. But I have not seen anything to defeat people’s susceptibility to this combination:

  1. the precautionary principle that keeps leading them back to “it might be unsafe and you cannot prove that it cannot be unsafe.”
  2. The nature of the possibilities requires drastic measures.
  3. Who am I to argue with the steady downpour of experts and politicians?
  4. Saving the world is the only right thing to do. Now, what can I do that makes me feel like that?

Bitcoin among many provides anonymous payments. ​

WUWT has no special legal protection against accident, data breach, or legal action revealing peoples names.

We are talking people’s careers with a huge legal liability is someone’s name is revealed without their permission.

I expect Anthony carries commercial liability insurance against such a mishap.

However if someone does suffer a loss they would be forced to sue Anthony’s insurance provider, which can be awful difficult if you just lost you job and live in a different jurisdiction.

So why require people to submit their real names if they want to publish anonymously?

In any case it is rather straight forward to mask your true identity, email and phone with free tools on the internet. And the virtual identity so created will fully pass captcha and 2 part verification.

So whatever the purpose might be for collecting identities there is no way WUWT can actually be sure that the author is a real or virtual person.

I’m convinced that we have been well marginalized by the troughers in academe, gov and associated establishments in terms of presenting the science. We’re even in Wiki as anti-science deniers/shills.

I’ve recently used arguments from history and from artifacts of earlier climates (a 5000 yr old white spruce stump in situe at Tuktayuktuk) in the barren lands on the NW Arctic shore of Canada. Several hundred km south is the treeline (also white spruce) and another couple of hundred km south of that, their are white spruce of the size of the Tuk tree that grow in an area that’s10C warmer.

The meaning is obvious to a 12yr old whom I explained it to. I explained polar T enhancement and estimated that the world averaged ~5°C warmer 5,000 yrs ago, 3 times the 1.5°C that the Lysenkoist consensus is scaring the world about for their global socialist governance bosses.

There are numerous indisputable examples of this kind. I’m looking forward to the usual “woke talking points’ sociologists who frequent here to argue this example.

The article notes: 1) massive funding climate science got since Obama; 2) No attempts made with this money to validate a “greenhouse gas effect”. 3) one particular article (Keating, 2007), in a peer-reviewed journal, confuses heat capacity with a ‘greenhouse gas effect’.

Back Radiation Is Bollocks by Willis Eschenbach.

To be fair, “back radiation” was not invented by Willis. There are lots of far more prominent “climate scientists” and institutions spreading that nonsense. Understanding how “back radiation” (which of exists!) can not heat anything, is like a little IQ test. And as with any IQ test, it is hard to imagine how anyone could possibly fail on such simple questions. But people do..

I know that but he is the one who continually pushes this back radiation bullshit without a shred of evidence that it has any effect whatsoever.

If you criticise him he gives you abuse or deletes your post and lots of WUWT posters rally to his defence and you end up with a downvote that looks like griff’s.

If WUWT is a truly sceptical website it should be challenging the lack of evidence supporting the GHE not arguing how effective the GHE is in raising the temperature of the planet surface or what the ECS should be. That is simply a discussion between climate change alarmists and lukewarmists.

It’s time to quash sophistry.

I think you are the idiot, Rich Davis. Only an idiot would confuse “cooling slower” with “increasing temperature”.

You are a useful idiot to the lukewarmists on this blog.

Reply to  Rich Davis
October 10, 2021 7:09 am

But “back radiation” does not delay cooling, or retain heat. It does nothing at all! It is just an entropic process where every molecule emits and absorbs radiation according to its temperature. It even happens in your body. It is never a source of energy. It will only even out differences in temperature.

For instance the “GHE” partially does even turn negative with an inversion, as the air is warmer than the surface and emits more radiation. That has led some to argue CO2 would rather cool the antarctic, which would explain why there is no warming. It is not true either. However what you should ask yourself is, how a GHE can turn negative despite the atmosphere providing “back radiation”, and actually plenty of relative to surface temperature. How is that possible?

Reply to  E. Schaffer
October 10, 2021 12:58 pm

The irony of the WUWT stance is that it rejects the claim that the CAGW effect of the GHE is settled science and then endorses the lesser GHE hypothesis and claims that that science is settled.

Isn’t that the basis of an essay. You could argue the question is no longer meaningful. I think it is close to fact. The next phase will be to see how it unravels as the weather gets colder and random energy extraction is recognised as a humungous waste of resources. Look at the Afghan war. It was being won for two decades then lost in two weeks! People dying of cold across the northern continents in a few months could change a lot of minds about fossil fuels.

Many years ago I was in a school debate for the affirmative on the proposition –
The USA is dying!

The negative side argued the USA was dead. The strategy was something we had not contemplated and our argument had to change midstream from dying to something like – being still alive but on life support.

True. In fact it is the opposite. Record crops year upon year.

Lukewarmists give alarmists the credibility they don’t deserve.

WUWT seems to have more than its (dave) fair share of lukewarmists.

When are lukewarmists going to challenge the claimed catastrophic effects of the GHE or the ridiculous ECS claims which are based on groupthink and cargo cult science by the media and alarmist websites and publications instead of agreeing with them to a point?

Meanwhile, BBC One will screen a film drama, The Trick, on October 18, based on Climategate 2009 where Phil Jones et al at the CRU UEA are shown to be hacked by climate change deniers to discredit the settled science of AGW.

With time running out against an unseen enemy, The Trick looks at the potentially devastating consequences to humanity from climate change denial; how a media storm undermined public confidence in the science and how the concept of ‘truth’ took a back seat causing us to lose a decade of action. The film also charts the unjustified persecution of Phil Jones, his wife Ruth’s fierce support of her husband and the fight for the ultimate exoneration of himself and the science.”

I seem to remember it differently.

Don’t know about you but I would be very wary about supporting the roll of the GHE in the settled science when the only difference between warmists and lukewarmists is “How Much?”.

Maybe WUWT needs a new direction?
