The public just doesn't seem to be afraid of the Global Warming scare tactics

Making Global Warming Scarier

Climate researchers have a problem. A degree or two of global warming simply isn’t scary. When Hollywood created “The Day After Tomorrow”, the cold snap allegedly triggered by global warming was by far the most deadly threat faced by the heroes. So Ed Hawkins, a professor at University of Reading, has ditched boring old graphs,…

Searching for Warming in USHCN Data

Guest essay by Leland Park Before Climate Science, basic physics differentiated between the terms heat and temperature because they are related – but do not have the same meaning. The classic heat equation, from physics provides the principal relationship. Accordingly, the relationship between the heat content of a substance and changes in its temperature is…
