About Joseph E. Postma (Joe Postma); “the Climate Denier List”: The Sophistry of “the Climate Denier” blog.

As mentioned in the other post, I did a Google search of myself today and found that I made some deranged fanatic’s “denier list”.

The page starts off by claiming that I have no peer-reviewed papers in any legitimate science journals.  Well let’s see:

  1. Line Absorption as a Metallicity Index for Giant Stars.  The Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, Volume 114, Issue 795, pp. 536-545.  I was 3rd author for the scientific astrophysical data analysis that contributed to the paper.
  2. Observations and Analyses of the Cepheid SZ Tauri.  Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Vol. 99, No. 4, p.143.  I was first author for this presentation at the annual RASC meeting.
  3. Observations and Analyses of the Cepheid SZ Tauri.  American Astronomical Society Meeting 208, #65.06; Bulletin of the American Astronomical Society, Vol. 38, p.144.  This was for a presentation at the AAS meeting at which I gave a talk.
  4. Photon Event Centroiding with UV Photon-counting Detectors.  The Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, Volume 119, Issue 860, pp. 1152-1162.  I was 2nd author for this paper which based largely on my data analysis and modelling, and much of my writing.
  5. The observation and analysis of the Cepheid SZ Tauri.  Proquest Dissertations And Theses 2008. Section 0026, Part 0606 177 pages; [M.Sc. dissertation].Canada: University of Calgary (Canada); 2008. Publication Number: AAT MR38109. Source: MAI 46/06, Dec 2008.  This is my masters thesis the results of which I have described here.
  6. Calibration and Performance of the Photon-counting Detectors for the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UVIT) of the Astrosat Observatory.  Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, Volume 123, issue 905, pp.833-843.  I was 1st author for this paper based exclusively on my research.
  7. Tests and calibration on ultra violet imaging telescope (UVIT).  Space Telescopes and Instrumentation 2012: Ultraviolet to Gamma Ray. Proceedings of the SPIE, Volume 8443, id. 84434R-84434R-9 (2012).  I was 4th author for contributing to the scientific data analysis for this paper.

The site then goes on to strangely claim that I might not actually have the job as listed on my LinkedIn profile, and then it just lies and claims that I don’t actually have a masters degree in astrophysics.  Well, at this point we obviously know that the site making these claims is simply a front for climate hatred, and so, that sets the record straight for that.

    Joe, sue them for defamation. This type of treatment will continue for yourself and others if it is not punished under law. They may retract and remove the lies under threat of legal action without having to go down the long legal path of a court case.

    [Reply: Thanks, good point!]

  2. David pristash says:

    Joe great work — I do agree 100% with your calculations

    FYI, I have developed an alternative model of world temperature changes that fits NASA observations much better than those based on CO2 concentrations as the IPCC and their silly models keep trying to show. If you are interested in getting a copy let me know ….

    [Reply: Hi David. Yes, please do send me a copy: joepostma@live.ca

    Forget legal action unlike the loonies Mann etc – without provable damages even winning will mean you lose.

  4. BojanD says:

    The relevant question is whether your article The Model Atmospheric
    Greenhouse Effect is published in any respectable journal. It’s been more than three years since you wrote it so what went wrong?

  5. I never submitted it to any other journals. The core of the paper is simple empirical data that anyone can reproduce. Maybe I’ll submit it one day.

  6. BojanD says:

    I don’t understand this ambivalency about submission. If you’re right, this could be the Nobel Prize stuff.

    Yes Joe agree and many thanks.
