Former NASA scientist disses @NASAGISS – says it’s a “monument to bad science”

Climate scientist Dr. Duane Thresher: Start with defunding NASA GISS where this whole global warming nonsense started.

It was continued by Gavin Schmidt, current head of NASA GISS, anointed by Hansen, and leading climate change warrior scientist/spokesperson. I know…

Driving Forces

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach There’s a new paper published in Nature Scientific Reports called “Identification of the driving forces of climate change using the longest instrumental temperature record”, by Geli Wang et al, hereinafter Wang2017. By “the longest instrumental temperature record” they mean the Central England Temperature, commonly called the “CET”. Unfortunately, the CET is…

Australian National University Climate scientist Sophie Lewis acknowledges that climate models are not falsifiable – yet claims we should trust them anyway. Climate change has changed the way I think about science. Here’s why Sophie Lewis Research fellow, Australian National University August 10,…

Volcanic Northern Winters

I see there’s a new study, unfortunately paywalled, which starts out by saying: Observations show that all recent large tropical volcanic eruptions (1850-present) were followed by surface winter warming in the first Northern Hemisphere (NH) winter after the eruption. Recent studies show that climate models produce a surface winter warming response in the first winter…
