We are at no new highs today as some will propose.
There have been some comments on this video from persons who say “These are not climate scientists”!
They are specialists in the field of climate, therefore it is fair to call them climate scientists.
Someone is not responding honestly to the science data that is available to them…think!
The US has climate goals and the world has climate goals. So, what of them? We aren’t seeing much change to meet those goals. The goals seem arbitrary to the informed and to the average person. Is the average person concerned or knowledgeable? Continue reading “How Can We Tap Solar for Energy?”
We all have to keep these thoughts in mind in the conversation about climate change. The science is not firm yet.
Here are two scientists with the most level-headed take on climate change in my view. Take a look.
Do you wonder about “climate change” like I do? We’ve got labels for people who believe this or that. We see conflicting data published in scientific journals and the public press?
I haven’t drawn precise conclusions yet because I am not close enough to the science. I am reading a book which to me provides a great background for the discussion on the earth, the changes which have happened on it over time and the current discussion about it’s climate and whether or not the climate is changing in a destructive way. Maybe I did not say that right. Is the climate change that may be occurring destructive or offensive to life on the planet?
Blogger note: Stoknes (below) came up with 5 D’s which included “denial” of course. He did not explore all causal factors. Part of the angst about human involvement in CC is known data. The sun and the earth’s center are the two main sources of energy producing heat. CO2 is vital to all plant life though labeled as pollutant. Lastly, CC as defined in the media is too big an issue for humanity to assume significant control over.
When Per Espen Stoknes looked at polls going back to 1989 assessing the level of public concern about climate change in 39 different countries, he found a surprising pattern in the data.

…after Whistleblower Exposes Fake Science
Congress is ramping up its investigation into a key climate study, now under further scrutiny after a federal whistleblower raised more questions about it this week. The scandal some are referring to as “Climategate Two” (you can learn about the first Climategate here) is quickly escalating after Dr. John Bates, a former top scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), exposed how an ex-colleague mishandled a report on global warming right before a major international climate conference in 2015.
