Global Warming and Economic impact

“The economic impact would be devastating for the United States. We would see the loss of millions of jobs, entire industries would flee to other countries, our people would face higher fuel costs, higher taxes, leading to lower productivity and a lower standard of living.” My discussion with Dr. Singer shows how the global warming industry are creating more money for themselves and are pushing the facts aside.

Climate Warming Tipping Point

We’ve all heard about global warming. The earth’s warming, it’s not — it’s cooling. One thing’s for sure, my head is spinning. It’s gotten hard to keep track of what kind of climate change we’re really in for. James White, Professor of Geological Sciences, Univ. of Colorado at Boulder, talked with me about what he thinks may be a tipping point. Prof. White says that we may be in for an...

Bad Weather Instruments + No Monitoring = Global Warming

What happens when weather stations produce corrupt data? We get bad science that you can actually see. Unfortunately we’ve also ended up with bad public policies. Anthony Watts of www.surfacestations.org has a big piece of data to share. 30% of the weather stations here in the United States are flawed. Click on the picture on the right to see a station in Forest Grove, OR with an air conditioner exhaust blowing directly on the...

Global Warming… The Climate Models Aren’t What They Used to Be

Global warming is real. Kind of. I interviewed Patrick J. Michaels, the author of Shattered Consensus: The True State of Global Warming and we got the real skinny on what’s been going on. The observed rate of warming (since 1976) has been remarkably constant, and in recent years we’ve seen a leveling off and even a bit of cooling — but none of the climate models used to show everyone that we need to change our ways...

Biofuels Could Cause More Harm Than Good

Prof. Steven Hamburg was currently in Washington, DC, attending a biofuels workshop – there was a lot of interest in linking the science and policy to ensure that biofuels help farmers, address climate change, reduce dependence on foreign oil, and protect the environment and economy. That is possible with the right policy instruments. The move to biofuels is a good thing in moderation – too much and we could actually cause a net...
