A Decade of Evidence against Catastrophic Global Warming – May 18, 2012
Unelected, unaccountable environmentalists and main stream media continue to propagate the myth of Catastrophic Human-Caused/Anthropogenic Global Warming despite a decade of evidence that runs contrary to all the predictions and computer simulations of the global warming crowd.

Re - 'Wildrose Proves Too Wild', April 25 – May 3, 2012
"Danielle Smith’s statement that "the science isn't settled" on climate change was correct—scientifically. It should have been correct politically as well since it is a centrist position, respecting people on both sides of the very real and intense debate about the causes of climate change."
Aristotle’s Climate – April 23, 2012
The Greek philosopher Aristotle, 2,300 years ago, listed the dozen commonest logical fallacies in human discourse in his book Sophistical Refutations. Not the least of these invalid arguments is what the medieval schoolmen would later call the argumentum ad populum— the consensus or headcount fallacy.
Astronauts Condemn NASA’s Global Warming Endorsement – April 13, 2012
In an unprecedented slap at NASA’s endorsement of global warming science, nearly 50 former astronauts and scientists--including the ex-boss of the Johnson Space Center--claim the agency is on the wrong side of science and must change course or ruin the reputation of the world’s top space agency.
Onto the Sustainable Scrap Heap – April 10, 2012
Sustainable development is a mushy concept rooted in the belief that markets are unsustainable, the climate is in crisis, and that Global Salvation requires vast cabals of bureaucrats, NGOs, consultants and corporations to hatch top-down solutions. Since market prices are “all wrong,” the way to a more modest anti-materialist, carbon-constrained future is through globally co-ordinated taxation and the promotion of energy alternatives.
Healthy Polar Bear Count Confounds Doomsayers – April 9, 2012
The debate about climate change and its impact on polar bears has intensified with the release of a survey that shows the bear population in a key part of northern Canada is far larger than many scientists thought, and might be growing.
Eco Hypothesis Faulty – April 5, 2012
While reducing energy consumption to conserve natural resources, reduce pollution and save money is a worthwhile activity and something all sensible people support, Earth Hour is not based on these goals.
Lights out for Earth Hour – April 3, 2012
What a shame to see the lights go out on Earth Hour, the global WWF fundraiser that persuades the young, the naive and the scared to inconvenience themselves on Saturday evening.
The Biggest Carbon Bomb is Disinformation – April 2, 2012

Energy is a Second Harvest – March 12, 2012
Fortunately, says Mr. Bryce, world agriculture didn’t go organic in the 1960s – or, for that matter, since. Farmland used for organic cultivation on a large scale produces 23 per cent less corn, per acre, than conventional agriculture, 50 per cent less wheat. Extrapolated to global dimensions, organic farming could have seriously reduced the world’s food supply.
Is Catastrophic Global Warming, Like the Millenium Bug, a Mistake? – March 9, 2012
At a public meeting in the Commons, the climate scientist Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT made a number of declarations that unsettle the claim that global warming is backed by “settled science”. They’re not new, but some of them were new to me.

Tim Ball writes that much of the opposition to oil sands development and pipeline construction is based on incorrect beliefs about the relationship between CO2 emissions and climate change.
Environment Canada Ignores Science Input on Greenhouse Gas Regulations – March 6, 2012
Public hearing process pointless since government agency seems to have already made up its mind about climate change without incorporating unfolding science.
Concerned Scientists Reply on Global Warming – March 5, 2012
The interest generated by our Wall Street Journal op-ed of Jan. 27, "No Need to Panic about Global Warming," is gratifying but so extensive that we will limit our response to the letter to the editor the Journal published on Feb. 1, 2012 by Kevin Trenberth and 37 other signatories, and to the Feb. 6 letter by Robert Byer, President of the American Physical Society. (We, of course, thank the writers of supportive letters.)
