Science Recommends Climate Model Re-Start

Jul 7, 2014 — Dennis Avery

An article in the June 13, 2014 issue of Science admits the computer climate models are not effective at forecasting either future or past temperatures.. The Science piece says the current models are “bloated with data,” but still cannot represent such huge variables as clouds and shifts in ocean currents. Statisticians are recommending a re-start.

A World Turns Against Biofuels

May 31, 2014 — Dennis Avery

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has suddenly reversed its support for biofuels. The panel now admits growing crops for fuel “poses risks to ecosystems and biodiversity.”

Carbon dioxide won’t cause famines

May 30, 2014 — Dennis Avery

Historian Geoffrey Parker is the author of Global Crisis: War, Climate Change and Catastrophe in the 17th Century. In a recent opinion piece, he suggested that the desperate climate from 1600 to 1700 is a template for human collapse in our twenty-first century. There are two massive flaws in his theory.

FDA: No Low-Dose Chemical Dangers

May 20, 2014 — Dennis Avery

The Food and Drug Administration has just loudly re-endorsed perhaps the oldest truth in science—that the dose makes the poison. Paracelsus, the father of toxicology, told us 500 years ago, “All substances are poison. There is none which is not a poison. The right dose makes the difference between a poison and a remedy.”

Obama and Economic Suicide

Nov 12, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA—President Obama is demanding, by Executive Order, what congress will not give him by vote. With winter approaching and the “ObamaCare” mess hanging over his shoulder, he is now ordering the U.S. economy to hitch itself to more and more of the costly and erratic “renewable” energy sources. These have already bankrupted Spain and are about to bankrupt Great Britain and Germany.

Does Global Warming Science Matter?

Oct 11, 2013 — Dennis Avery

The European Union’s top climate official says the EU is pursuing the right renewable energy policies—even if the scientists are wrong about the cause of global warming! Why?

Arctic grabs gullible sailors

Sep 18, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA—The naïve advice of ardent activists can kill. Last spring, Paul Beckwith of Sierra Club Canada predicted that the Arctic seas would be ice-free ice this summer. (So did Britain’s BBC network) This exciting adventure opportunity attracted a variety of yachts, sailboats, rowboats, and kayaks owners to try sailing the fabled Northwest Passage.

Global Warming: It’s Happening Again

Jul 30, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA—Senator Boxer recently held a hearing entitled, “Climate Change: It’s Happening Now.” To honor historic truth, the title “It’s Happening Again” would have suited better.

Ten Billion and Catastrophe?

Jul 18, 2013 — Dennis Avery

The polls say we no longer fear man-made global warming very much. However, now that the scaremongers can’t make us afraid of GW they’re recycling their most reliable scare—overpopulation. Two new books, Ten Billion, by Stephen Emmot and Population: Ten Billion, by Dan Dorley, claim too many people will bring on disaster. They claim humanity will be doomed by the combination of overpopulation, climate change and species loss.

A Climate Debate: Both Sides Showed Up!

Jun 15, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA—I just took part in a remarkable event: a public debate over manmade global warming in which both sides appeared—and the Associated Press reported on it!  I have been invited to many of these events over the past six years, but the warmists always canceled when they found a skeptic was part of the deal.

Prince Charles: Too “Green” to be King?

May 21, 2013 — Dennis Avery

CHURCHVILLE, VA—Prince Charles recently made his most outspoken criticism yet of the world’s failure to reduce CO2 emissions. Meanwhile, British families have seen no global warming trend in 16 years, while their electric bills have doubled to support expensive and unreliable wind turbines.

A Climate Cycle Delivered Our Cold Spring

May 10, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA: Lots of us are commenting on the U.S. having the second coldest spring in the official thermometer record (starting ca. 1860) and the coldest since 1975. Remember, too, that in 1975 major news magazines were predicting a sudden return to the next Ice Age! This cold spring highlights another climate cycle that has nothing to do with CO2.

Billionaire “forcing” climate change

Apr 19, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA—A Wall Street billionaire is pledging to spend “whatever it takes” to make manmade global warming the “defining issue of our generation.” Most recently, he sent airplanes with banners over Boston that read “Steve Lynch for Oil Evil Empire.”  Lynch, a fellow Democrat and Senate candidate, favors the Keystone pipeline and the jobs it would create.

The Dam is about to Break

Apr 9, 2013 — Dennis Avery

Churchville, VA—When a dam is about to break, the first sign of collapse is a little trickle of water over its top. Last, week Geoffrey Lean of London’s Telegraph scooped a little trickle of water over the top of the man-made warming dam—which has been holding back human hopes for decades. Lean has been an environmental correspondent for 40 years, and no one had more loudly demanded lowered CO2 emissions “to protect the planet.”

Is Warming the “Civilization-Killer”?

Apr 2, 2013 — Dennis Avery

CHURCHVILLE, VA—Author Eugene Linden writes books on the far edge of the environmental movement. He recently wrote, a bit hysterically, in The Daily Beast: “we need leaders with the courage to steamroll the deniers and the vested interests . . . Climate change is a civilization killer, and if we go on down the climate rapids…” I am not sure what “steamrolling entails; but I do know that the warmer periods are the civilization savers.
