Tim Ball’s The Science Isn’t Settled Presentation

Center for Science and Public Policy 3/21/07 Capitol Hill Briefing Series

Tim’s presentation takes on assumption of the accuracy of the station data, model forecasting ability and carbon dixide historical levels and the downplaying of natural factors. See Tim’s PPT

Carbon Cycle Modelling and the Residence Time of Natural and Anthropogenic CO2

by Tom Victor Segalstad

The evidence of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that the apparent contemporary atmospheric CO2 increase is anthropogenic, is discussed and rejected. It is shown why the ice core method and its results must be rejected; and that current air CO2 measurements are not validated and their results subjectively “edited”.

The three evidences of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that the apparent contemporary atmospheric CO2 increase is anthropogenic, is discussed and rejected. It is shown why the ice core method and its results must be rejected; and that current air CO2 measurements are not validated and their results subjectively “edited”. 

Further it is shown that carbon cycle modelling based on non-equilibrium models, remote from observed reality and chemical laws, made to fit non-representative data through the use of non-linear ocean evasion “buffer” correction factors constructed from a pre-conceived idea, constitute a circular argument and with no scientific validity.  See Tom’s paper here and powerpoint presentation here

Also you may check out Beck’s paper on CO2 in the Climate Library here Beck on CO2. Beck has shown that using chemical methods CO2 has been higher than at current levels in the 1800s and 1940s.

Bill Gray Updates Hurricane Forecast and Challenges Global Warming’s Role, AP Show Bias in Coverage

Bill Gray issued his April Hurricane 2007 Season Update at the Hurricane Conference this week.  He and his partner Philip Klotzbach are calling for 17 named storm, 9 hurricanes and 5 major hurricanes with an enhanced chance of US landfall along both the Gulf and East coasts. He then presented evidence that the mulitdecadal oscillation in the Atlantic and not global warming was behind the continued increased activity, an opinion shared by most all of the real hurricane experts and forecasters. In this excellent blogpost on Powerlineblog, they show how the AP showed its typical biased coverage of Bill’s talk.  Powerlineblog on the AP Media Bias

Top Court: EPA Can Control Emissions

By MARK SHERMAN, ABC News

The Supreme Court ordered the federal government on Monday to take a fresh look at regulating carbon dioxide emissions from cars, a rebuke to Bush administration policy on global warming.

Global Hurricane Intensity Not Increasing

World Climate Report

University of Wisconsin researchers found in a GRL published paper “The time-dependent differences between the UW/NCDC and JTWC best track records underscores the potential for data inconsistencies to introduce spurious (or spuriously large) upward trends in longer-term measures of hurricane activity. Using a homogeneous record, we were not able to corroborate the presence of upward trends in hurricane intensity over the past two decades in any basin other than the Atlantic. Since the Atlantic basin accounts for less than 15% of global hurricane activity, this result poses a challenge to hypotheses that directly relate globally increasing tropical SST to increases in long-term mean global hurricane intensity.”
