AGW Falsified: NOAA Long Wave Radiation Data Incompatible with the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming
ANTHROPOGENIC Global Warming (AGW) theory claims the earth is warming because rising CO2 is like a blanket, reducing Earth’s energy loss to space. However, data from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that at least for the last 30 years, Earth’s energy loss to space has been rising. The last 30 years [...]
Dear ABCA Subscribers, The journal Food and Chemical Toxicology today announced the retraction of the article Long term toxicity of a Roundup herbicide and a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize by Séralini et al first published online in September 2012. Shortly after the article was originally published, the journal received many letters to the editor expressing [...]
THE Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s news online is running with the headline ‘Climate change rallies held around Australia, with calls for Coalition to keep carbon tax’. So many could-be inspiring photographs and could-be inspiring captions follow the headline that I could have been on Facebook. Indeed the ABC “news item” would tick most of the boxes [...]
The Volunteer Firefighters Association (VFFA), the body representing the Voice of Volunteer Rural Firefighters in New South Wales, refutes the claim by green alarmists that climate change is the cause of the recent bushfires in New South Wales. “It’s ridiculous to blame climate change when we know there has been far worse bushfires stretching back [...]
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 [...]
WHEN Tim Flannery was sacked last week as Australia’s Climate Commissioner he claimed that this last year has been the hottest on record. I don’t believe him because the raw data doesn’t support that claim, only the metadata for Australia, which has been adjusted, shows recent warming. Willis Eschenbach explains how they ‘fix the data’ [...]
THE Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) is an international panel of nongovernment scientists and scholars who have come together to present a comprehensive, authoritative, and realistic assessment of the science and economics of global warming. Because it is not a government agency, and because its members are not predisposed to believe climate change [...]
MOST of the federal electorates within the Murray Darling are held by MPs from either the Liberal or National Parties. Over recent years, however, major water policies instigated by federal Coalition governments that directly impact these electorates have been to their long-term detriment. It makes no sense, until one realises that the Coalition has assumed [...]
Various media have been reporting that in the Arctic about a million more square miles of ocean are covered in ice this August than just last year. This is apparently an increase of 60 percent. August is usually a low point in the annual cycle, and not so many years ago some were predicting the [...]
