The Computer says NO: Tom Quirk on Why This Report from the IPCC Should Be Its Last

THE IPCC use of computer models to predict temperatures, rain fall, sea level rises and other weather related events either global or regional has comprehensively failed to predict most of the observations made in the last twenty years and ignores any analysis that suggests natural variability as the main driver of climate. Ad hoc effects [...]

A Windy Future

THE Australian government didn’t get its carbon trading legislation through the Senate last week and has now decided, at least for the moment, to just push ahead with that part of the legislation relating to renewable energy targets.    It seems this legislation is likely to be passed sometime this week and according to many pundits the [...]

Comparing Global Temperatures

THERE are four official global temperature data sets and there has been much debate and discussion as to which best represents change in global temperature.  Tom Quirk has analysed variations within and between these data sets and concludes there is 1. Substantial general agreement between the data sets, 2. Substantial short-term variation in global temperature [...]

Fossil Fuels Fail to Explain Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Levels: AEF Media Release

CHAIR of the Australian Environment Foundation, Jennifer Marohasy, today welcomed new research by Australian physicist, Dr Tom Quirk, suggesting natural environmental forces, more than just fossil fuel emissions, could be contributing to the elevated levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide [CO2]. “Most CO2 from fossil fuels is emitted in the northern hemisphere and it takes at [...]

The Available Evidence Does Not Support Fossil Fuels as the Source of Increasing Concentrations of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (Part 1)

BECAUSE the increase in the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide has correlated with an increase in the use of fossil fuels, causation has been assumed. Tom Quirk has tested this assumption including through an analysis of the time delay between northern and southern hemisphere variations in carbon dioxide.  In a new paper in the journal Energy and [...]
