Truth Will Out

The deniers lost. Their credibility is so low that further efforts to deny the truth only make it more obvious. The only people who will buy their utter crap, are those who cannot be reasoned with. For twelve years I’ve…

Ice: Five Million Years

A new paper by Willeit et al. reports on the first successful model simulation of global climate over the last three million years. That’s a lot of years. You can find out more, from the lead author himself, at the…

New Kid in Town

El Niño (“the little boy”) is the warm phase of an ocean/atmosphere oscillation; it helps heat go from the ocean to the atmosphere and warm up our weather. During its counterpart, la Niña (“the little girl”), it does the opposite,…

Time to Get Real

Do you really believe politics always trumps physics? In the end, I’ve got a feeling it will be the other way around. Advertisements…

Jay Inslee for President

Larry Hamlin has shown us all, in a post at WUWT, how warped and twisted is the thinking of those who call themselves “skeptics” about climate change, but are actually deniers. This one is about sea level rise. The headline…

Time is Short for the Carbon Budget

The “carbon budget” is an estimate of how much CO2 we can still emit, but still have a good chance to keep global warming from going over the 1.5°C limit into “dangerous” territory. The budget has recently been revised (upward,…

Open Letter to YOU

We, the young, are deeply concerned about our future. Humanity is currently causing the sixth mass extinction of species and the global climate system is at the brink of a catastrophic crisis. Its devastating impacts are already felt by millions…

Open Mind 2019-02-28 05:43:42

Scientists have learned three things about climate change. #1: It’s real #2: It’s us #3: It’s bad Now that we’ve finally convinced most people about #1 and #2 … it’s time for you to face #3. Here’s a start. #3a:…

Arctic Sea Ice: the Denier Viewpoint

Since 1979 we’ve kept watch on the Arctic sea ice pack using satellites. It grows and decays with the seasons of course; more ice in winter/spring, less in summer/fall. But over the decades, we’ve also seen it waste away from…
