Multi-decadal Tendencies by Joseph D’Aleo and Dr. Don Easterbrook.

Environmental Movement by Walter Williams.  Here’s how wrong past environmental predictions have been.  Excellent article!

Bounding GHG Climate Sensitivity for Use in Regulatory Decisions – The Right Climate Stuff Research Team.  Lead Author: Harold H. Doiron, PhD.  The purpose of this report is to provide a rigorous scientific basis for official comments to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) by The Right Climate Stuff (TRCS) Research Team in response to OMB’s official request for comments on the overall approach for computing Social Cost of Carbon (SCC).

The long sunspot cycle 23 predicts a significant temperature decrease in cycle 24 – by Jan-Erik Solheim, et. al., Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics · February 2012.  “ . . . a significant negative trend is found between the length of a [sun spot] cycle and the temperature in the next cycle.”

Catastrophe Denied by Warren Meyer, who operates the web site “climate-skeptic.com,” provides a very detailed analysis of climate change.  He prepared this analysis for the skeptic’s side for a number of debates in which he had participated.

Several simple Climate Models (Compared) are examined and their output is compared with the measurements and with the projections of the IPCC global climate models.  Briefing by Bernie McCune.

This file contains some background information on Ed Caryl’s natural cycles model.

This file contains some background information on David Evan’s model.  Who are you going to believe?  The government climate scientists or the data?

Ed Caryl provides some additional thoughts on natural cycles in this file.

Girma Orssengo takes apart the IPCC climate projections and replaces them with those from his own model that are much more realistic.

A Powerpoint briefing on Examining the Hypothesis by Bob Endlich.

Bob’s Method for Plotting CO2 and Temperature in Time Series in Excel.

A Major Deception on Global Warming by Frederick Seitz.  A Wall Street Journal Op Ed piece.

Wallace III, D’Aleo, and Idso examine the many problems with the validity of the NOAA, NASA, HADCRUT data and the validity of the EPA’s Carbon Dioxide endangerment finding.

Clive James provides a detailed critique of the mass media and their coverage of climate change.

A Powerpoint briefing on the costs and benefits of alternative energy sources entitled “21st Century Snake Oil” by Bob Endlich.

The First Decade of the New Century: A Cooling Trend for Most of Alaska, G. Wendler, L. Chen and B. Moore, The Open Atmospheric Science Journal, 2012, 6, 111-116.111.  During the first decade of the 21st century most of Alaska experienced a cooling shift, modifying the long-term warming trend, which has been about twice the global change up to this time. All of Alaska cooled with the exception of Northern Regions. This trend was caused by a change in sign of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), which became dominantly negative, weakening the Aleutian Low.

Captain T. A. (Ike) Kiefer discusses why the US should reject biofuels as a part of a rational national security energy strategy.  Published by Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation.

Bernie McCune provides plots of temperature time series for New Mexico in a demonstration that NM temperatures are really pretty ordinary and seemingly unaffected by the so-called catastrophic anthropogenic global warming.  Several brief additional comments regarding the data are also provided.

Abbot and Marohasy 2017 GeoResJ paper on using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) to process huge amounts of data  for the purpose of predicting future climate trends.  Results from the ANN appear to be far superior to those produced by any of the IPCC’s global circulation models, which have been complete abject failures on a very consistent basis.  This paper also includes references to many other papers involving the ANN learning code, many of which also include links to the downloadable pdf file.

Dr. Roy Spencer presents a Guide to Understanding Global Temperatures in this pdf booklet.
