Willie Soon on the Tom Nelson Podcast

This CO2 stuff is…pure delusion. You cannot find any signature of that.

Tom Nelson

Climate realism

Dr. Willie Soon, an astrophysicist and geoscientist, is a leading authority on the relationship between solar phenomena and global climate. In this 32+ years of singular pursuit, he seeks to understand the Sun-Earth relations in terms of not only meteorology and climate, but also in terms of orbital dynamics of Sun-Earth-other planets interactions, magmatic (volcanoes) and tectonic (earthquakes) activities. His discoveries challenge computer modelers and advocates who consistently underestimate solar influences on cloud formation, ocean currents, and wind that cause climate to change. He has faced and risen above unethical and often libelous attacks on his research and his character, becoming one of the world’s most respected and influential voices for climate realism. In 2018, he founded the Center for Environmental Research and Earth Sciences (CERES-science.com) in order to tackle a wider range of issues and topics without fears nor prejudices.

Dr. Soon was an astrophysicist at the Solar, Stellar and Planetary Sciences Division of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, from 1991-2022. He served as receiving editor for New Astronomy from 2002-2016, astronomer at the Mount Wilson Observatory from 1992-2009. He is also on the editorial board of Geoscience, an MDPI publication since 2020 as well as serving as Review Editor of Frontiers in Earth Science starting 2022. Dr. Soon has also held the role of visiting professors at various institutions including University of Putra, Malaysia, Institute of Earth Environment of Xian, China and State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science at Xiamen University. Since September 2021, Dr. Soon is also affiliated with Hungary’s Institute of Earth Physics and Space Science.
Dr. Soon earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in science and a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California.

“The whole point of science is to question accepted dogmas. For that reason, I respect Willie Soon as a good scientist and a courageous citizen.’’ — Freeman Dyson in the Boston Globe, November 5, 2013

There is a simple concept in project and program management… Follow the truth wherever it leads… Simple…
Dr. Soon is an excellent example of how to apply this concept.. Your idea might be good… Follow it… Your idea may have problems… Learn from that, adapt, revise and then move forward…
IMHO… Every real scientific exploration must use this simple concept…
But allas… Many scientists let their ego get in the way, that’s when they cease to be scientists and they become political animals…
Just sayin….
Thank you Dr Soon for your scientific leadership…
May the force be with you…

Defamatory reasons? Didn’t a paper Soon published in Climate Research lead to the resignation of half the editorial board of the journal after it was revealed that Soon and his coauthor had grossly misrepresented the work of scientists whose research they were citing? That seems to be a huge black mark on his academic record.

You’re alluding to Soon & Baliunas (2003) Proxy climatic and environmental changes of the past 1000 years. Climate Research 23(2), 89-110.

That paper roused the Hockey Team to violent protest because it came to a valid conclusion about the climate, namely that the current state displayed nothing outside natural variability.

Otto Kinne has a fair review of the event (pdf). The five editors who resigned merely lacked the moral courage of their convictions in the face of controversy.

Green character assassins have had a field day slandering Willie Soon and misrepresenting the circumstances ever since.

Reply to  Pat Frank
October 20, 2022 8:34 am

Otto Kinne’s fair review of the event acknowledges that the paper shouldn’t have made it past peer review:

In conclusion: Quality control at CR was practised along generally established lines. There were no problems over the 13 years of CR existence. But there was insufficient attention to the methodological basis of statements that touch on hotly debated controversies and involve pronounced political and economic interests. CR should have been more careful and insisted on solid evidence and cautious formulations before publication.

He does not attempt to defend the quality of the paper. We should note that the paper did not merely rouse the “Hockey Team,” it roused the ire of the scientists whose work had been flagrantly misrepresented in it.

Ordinary non-science citizen that I am, my email contact list reads like a Who’s Who of skeptic climate scientists. Dr Willie Soon asked me to reply here on his behalf with the following:

Alan J did not even bother to listen to the Tom Nelson podcast—where I told about specific examples of those that tried to slur me for not citing their works correctly got no answer when I asked them where and how I quoted them incorrectly …

but for this comment, i want this letter to be widely out there—this is from climategate episode where Otto Kinne (just like Hans von Storch) are political animals … secretly pulled this stunt by checking all my notes (BTW: this process is very sacred and no one even did this to me or anyone else in the peer-reviewing processes—he has no right to look into this without my approval—but he did it anyway!)

I just tried to write an email to W. Soon, but it would not make it past his spam filter. Pretty ironic given the content.

Anyway, I just stumbled upon this from Soon, Eschenbach, Legates, cause I am just dealing with polar amplification.


They argue with clouds and so on, and they would be more important than the polar albedo effect. I don’t really feel the letter is up to a point.

The funny thing is, they have had a solid winning point in what they try to argue, if only they new. Water is very reflective at low angles of incidence. In the chart it is reflectivity relative to normal. For the poles it would be the range between 67 and 90°. It is somewhere between 10% and 100% albedo in this instance. Over all not much difference to about 50% albedo with ice and snow.

Thanks Russell. You’re one of the unsung serious heroes of this whole global warming fiasco.

Otto Kinne’s letter completely exonerates Willie Soon and Sally Baliunas, as well as Chris de Frietas. The review and ultimate acceptance of their 2003 Proxy climatic and environmental changes of the past 1000 years was completely legitimate.

And so were their conclusions.

I have to add, though, that as Editor-in-Chief of Climate Research Otto Kinne was completely within his rights and the purview of his position to examine the full record of review and editorial decision.

As a high-ranking academic Marine Biologist, his decision to support de Frietas’ editorial process carried the full weight of a professionally knowledgeable evaluation.

Otto Kinne merely second-guessed expert peer review. He didn’t offer any overlooked error of substantive fact.

More to your high ethical purity, the Mann, et al., (2003) reply to S&B published in EOS, purveyed a fraud. Their Figure 1 truncated Briffa’s proxy at 1960, just where it entered a steep decline.

Steve McIntyre dissected the whole disgraceful episode. The figure below shows his closeup of the misdirection. The arrow points to Briffa’s truncated (orange) proxy peeking out from behind the others. Pretty much hiding the lop-job.

Manuscript editor Ellen Mosley-Thompson could not have been ignorant of the fraud. The EOS paper boasted 13 authors — all of them proxy heroes. All of them participating in an outright fraud.

The ordinate temperatures on their figures were derived from no physical theory. The °C has no physical meaning. That constitutes a second fraud — one ubiquitous in modern proxy studies.

Ethical flag still flying, Alan?

Their Figure 1 truncated Briffa’s proxy at 1960, just where it entered a steep decline.

Because the decline does not represent a climate signal, as Briffa and multitudes of other researchers have noted. It diverges from the instrumental record post 1960. This is such a silly objection that I cannot believe the amount of time Steve McIntyre has spent wringing his hands about it.

And you go on about others being silly.

Certainly they are acting as proxies across the calibration and verification periods, as they are consistent with the instrumental record. Prior to that they are consistent with other proxies. It does indeed seem to be something restricted to recent years.

Pat Frank

“they are consistent with the instrumental record.”

Indistinguishable from happenstance. The canonized series are chosen out of the generally trendless pack because they just happen to match the 20th century temperature record.

The whole business is mere data snooping. An exercise in correlation = causation.

Interpretations of tree-ring series are based on no physical theory. They have no physical meaning.

consistent with other series” Right. They’re a lovely study in pre-modern coherence./irony

Soon and Baliunas published a literature review paper and the scientists whose literature they reviewed said the duo had flagrantly misrepresented their work. There is no evidence that the editors did anything less than resign of their own free will in protest of the journal’s poor publishing practices.

There is no physical method to convert a climate proxy to an air temperature. The people who purport temperatures from proxies make the assignment by fiat.

Such people are not scientists. It’s no wonder they protest at being exposed. So it’s always been with spiritualists and seancers.

Reply to  Pat Frank

That’s a very broad and impossible to dissect sentiment. What do you mean by “physical method?” Is not the method use statistical in nature? What do you mean by “make the assignment by fiat?” Do you believe this to be the case for all temperature proxies? Or just tree rings?

Pat Frank
Reply to  AlanJ
October 20, 2022 10:03 am

My statement is quite possible to dissect.

Statistics is no substitute for physics. Physics derives causality. Statistics establishes numerical coherence.

Statistics cannot derive causality. Statistics provides no method to covert a proxy into a physical temperature.

Assignment of temperature by fiat is true for all proxies, including ice cores. See proxy science and proxy pseudo-science.

Also see Negligence, Non-science and Consensus Climatology, peer-reviewed and published.

Oh. It’s the same tired systematic error nonsense I’ve seen from you my whole time here. If the thoughtful and well reasoned comments in that thread pointing out your errors weren’t enough to convince you, I stand little chance.

If temperature proxies provided no information about temperature then they wouldn’t agree with each other and the whole wouldn’t agree with the instrumental record. It’s almost silly to declare the notion that trees grow more when conditions are favorable to growth and grow less when they aren’t is “unphysical.”

Pat Frank
Reply to  AlanJ
October 20, 2022 12:41 pm

Non-sequitur. The case against proxies has nothing to do with systematic measurement error.

It has everything to do with the fact that there is no physical theory that converts a proxy into a temperature. That absence is fatal to the entire field of proxy temperature reconstructions.

You either don’t understand that obvious and basic truth of science, Alan, or are willfully blind to it.

Proxies can reveal warmer/wetter, cooler/drier. Hence their sometimes agreement. But confounding factors and spurious correlations remain unknown. Extracting a physical temperature from them is presently impossible.

Coherence with temperature? Look here and weep. Also here. And a truly damning example here.

Comparing proxy reality to your certainties, I’d observe the evidence is that you don’t know what you’re talking about.

In any case, systematic error is revealed in every single sensor field calibration experiment. That’s not nonsense but your comment about it is fatuous.

“[T]houghtful and well reasoned comments” in opposition to an experimental fact? Your unintended irony is inadvertent comedy.

Reply to  Pat Frank
October 21, 2022 10:11 am

There is a physical link between proxies and temperature, unless you’re suggesting that ocean temperature doesn’t influence isotopic fractionation in the shells of calcifying organisms, for instance, or that trees don’t actually grow better when conditions are more favorable to growth. But I know you wouldn’t be so silly as to suggest anything like that.

Show me the physical theory that explicates the quantitative relation between ocean temperature and isotopic fractionation of calcifying shells, Alan. Include the biological rate equations.

You’ll also need to present the isotopic ratios of past ocean waters, local to each proxy series.

Provide the physical theory that quantitatively describes the response of tree ring widths or ring-wood density to temperature. Include the biophysical equations quantifying the temperature dependence of wood deposition.

You can’t do any of that and neither can anyone else.

Hand-waving arguments are all you’ve got.

You’re making physically undemonstrable arguments in a discussion of physical science. Why isn’t that silly?

The hockey stick graph was a straight out fraud that almost demolished the Medieval Warm Period and pushed up the threat of future warming purely for political purposes .
I deal in facts which are that if governments around the world keep pushing global warming for political gain then a lot of worlds population of 8 billion people will very soon be facing starvation .
This is because there is a drastic shortage of nitrogen fertilizer because of restrictions in gas supplies in many countries that manufacture this essential fertilizer .

What happens if we assume that the troposphere, because of its density (due to gravity), is heated directly by incoming solar radiation? Then we discover that greenhouse gases are actually cooling the surface, because the vertical gradient decreases as water vapor increases.
 This seems to be the situation on Venus, where little solar radiation reaches the planet’s surface and the temperature near the surface is very high.

“TCI is based on measurements from the SABER instrument onboard NASA’s TIMED satellite. SABER monitors infrared emissions from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances that play a key role in the energy balance of air 100 to 300 kilometers above our planet’s surface. By measuring the infrared glow of these molecules, SABER can assess the thermal state of gas up there.”

Without looking up the reports, it has been shown by ice core data that CO2 follows temperature changes, not the other way around. Those studies that demonstrated this are ignored by those that ‘believe’. But they have absolutely no way to dispute the findings, so they ignore them as if they did not exist.
And, before it is mentioned, as it always is, CO2 cannot be both the result of temperature change, and the cause of temperature change. Nature does not work that way, or else the earth would be a very different place, and we would likely not be here, peacefully typing away on a cool morning.

1. Temperature, among other factors, drives atmospheric CO2 much more than CO2 drives temperature. The rate of change dCO2/dt is closely correlated with temperature and thus atmospheric CO2 LAGS temperature by ~9 months in the modern data record.

2. CO2 also lags temperature by ~~800 years in the ice core record, on a longer time scale.

3. Atmospheric CO2 lags temperature at all measured time scales.

The climate alarmist crowd never tires of insisting that anthropogenic additions to atmospheric carbon dioxide … —are driving … global warming … .

Long-term geological data show a pretty consistent correlation between CO2 and temperature, giving the claim its initial attractiveness.

But there’s a problem. Detailed analysis of the data shows that the time sequence is opposite what the claim requires.

There’s a recent NASA white paper on how surprised they were that Jupiter’s atmospheric temperature is hundreds of degrees warmer than their model’s predicted. They are seeing warming at the poles due to electrical currents entering the atmosphere at the poles and then propagating towards the equator. Thunderbolts Project did an interesting analysis video. It looks like we should rename the solar wind to the solar current. Then we will need to rewrite climate science, cosmology, etc, etc.
