Make America Great Again

Mother is the name for God in the mind of a child. When mother and child come here because they hope for a good life in a great nation, not only will we not let them in, we will separate…

Global Warming *** New Rules ***

NEW RULE: Adults need to stop catering to whiny babies. At the recent G7 conference, responsible world leaders from major economies got even more serious about climate change. Funny how adults want to protect their kids, and everybody else’s kids…

Climate Deniers: Sinking Fast

When it comes to sea level rise, climate deniers are desperate. It’s so obviously happening that denying its reality is a loser. It’s so obviously costly already (half a billion dollars in Miami) that trying to deny that will only…

Sea Level Rise: Denial by Bullshit

Sea level rise is such a huge problem, and is so undeniable, that climate deniers have gone loony trying to blame it on anything and everyting but global warming. It’s not working; the recent idiocy from congressman Mo Brooks trying…

Killer Storms get Stronger

A post at RealClimate is a must-read. It addresses the impact of man-made climate change on tropical storms; it’s still hotly debated whether or not they’ll become more numerous, but the evidence they will becom stronger — that they already…

Take a Knee

Note: this post has nothing to do with climate change. You might know George Takei as Lt. Sulu on the original “Star Trek.” He’s an American of Japanese descent — born here, raised here, every bit as American as any…

Drowning in Sea Level Rise

It’s not likely that sea level rise will drown you personally. The sea is creeping up on us slowly, and yet — all too soon — it has already flooded streets even on sunny days, seeped into groundwater making it…

Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum

I’m sometimes puzzled by GWPF (the “Global Warming Policy Foundation”). Do they think their readers are gullible idiots, or is the GWPF itself that stupid? Case in point: One of their latest makes a big deal about the fact that…

Sea Level on the U.S. East Coast

Lately I’ve been looking closely at sea level time series from the east coast of the U.S. Available stations are marked here with red dots: A pair of Canadian stations (off the Maine coast) are included. I (arbitrarily) divided the…

Recent Sea Level Change

NOAA provides an excellent website for acquiring and examining sea level data from tide gauges. It includes maps with which one can select individual stations, but which also show the rate of sea level rise based on fitting a linear…

Talking Points

The Huffington Post has obtained an internal memo from the EPA (under the leadership of Scott Pruitt) revealing what it thinks are the right “talking points” about climate change that can be “used across all Program and Regional Offices.” The…

US Warmhole

Not all places on earth are experiencing global warming at the same rate. Let’s consider the U.S., the “lower 48 states.” Taking data from NOAA for the 344 climate divisions in this region, and computing the linear trend rate for…

Consequences

It seems that Sheldon Walker’s main disagreement with the danger of global warming isn’t about whether or not it’s happening, or whether or not it’s man-made. He isn’t convinced that the consequences will be as harmful as is often claimed.…

New Blog

I’ve launched a new blog. I’m not abandoning this one, just starting another. ClimateYES The “YES” stands for “Youth Education in Science” because it’s about educating youth (including youthful 100-year-olds if they wish) about the science. I can use help,…

The Lowest Road

I call climate deniers “denier.” This angers some of them; they claim that I’m trying to liken them to Holocaust deniers in order to smear them by association with Nazis. That’s bullshit. I call them “denier” because they deny reality;…

Sea Level Acceleration

Sea level isn’t just rising, it is accelerating. It did so during the 20th century, and has done so even more quite recently. ABC news reported the story, based on just-published research (Nerem et al. 2018), that the latest satellite…

John Wayne or Gandhi?

When I grew up, I wanted to be like John Wayne. I won’t be insulted, I won’t be cheated, I won’t be laid a hand on. I don’t do these things to other people, and I require the same in…

Response to Sheldon Walker

Sheldon Walker commented on my most recent post about his most recent post. It began thus: Sheldon Walker | February 7, 2018 at 12:10 am | Reply Sheldon Walker: Oh, oh, I see, running away then. You yellow bastards! Come…
