Nobody Lives in a World Climate: Professor Bob Carter 1942-2016

OUTSPOKEN critic of catastrophic global warming theory, Bob Carter, died in Townsville on Tuesday. Professor Carter did not like the term sceptic, he considered himself a rationalist, and popular usage of the term ‘climate change’ a tautology. As he wrote frequently: the geological record tells us that climate always changes. In Professor Carter’s passing we […]

May Your Christmas be Replete with Food

LAST week I got to fly over the Murray River’s mouth and Coorong with two, hard-working, cross-bench Senators, Bob Day and David Leyonhjelm. That was immediately after the Senate Select Committee hearing in Goolwa*.  You may yawn: issues discussed included the availability and price of water for food production. According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs, […]

You Don’t Know the Half of It: Temperature Adjustments and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology

For the true believer, it is too awful to even consider that the Australian Bureau of Meteorology could be exaggerating global warming by adjusting figures.

Snowy Hydro responsible for cooling at Rutherglen?

I’VE just had a paper published in the international climate science journal Atmospheric Research (volume 166, pages 141-149), in which I show there was significant cooling in the maximum temperatures at the Cape Otway and Wilsons Promontory lighthouses, south eastern Australia, from 1921 to 1950.  This cooling is even more pronounced in temperature records from the […]

Remembering, the Day After Tomorrow

So, it may be difficult to remember a time in the future!  But do you remember the movie ‘The Day after Tomorrow’ when New York froze over?  That ice age was caused by changes in the circulation of warm water in the Atlantic Ocean, in particular the Gulf Stream closed down because of melting in the […]

Remember Rutherglen, & “Whoever has Honor Follow Me!”

The results of an independent ­review of the Bureau of Mete­or­ology’s national temperature records should “ring alarm bells” for those who had believed the bureau’s methods were transparent, says a key critic, Jennifer ­Marohasy.  So, begins an article by Graham Lloyd in The Weekend Australian. Lloyd goes on to write: Dr Marohasy said the review […]
