My name is Joseph E Postma and I am the owner and author of this domain. I have a Masters Degree in Astrophysics which I received in 2007, and my graduate thesis can be found here (or here) and is titled “The observation and analysis of the Cepheid SZ Tauri”.
Since that time I have been working under contract to the Canadian Space Agency through the University of Calgary on an international space telescope collaboration between Canada and India called the Ultra Violet Imaging Telescope (UVIT), which was subsequently launched in 2015 aboard India’s ASTROSAT spacecraft. My role was in assisting the development of the electronics hardware to ensure that it produced quality scientific data, testing and calibration of the hardware, and then in supporting data pipeline reduction software and data analysis for scientists world-wide.
My scientific publications may be found by searching the NASA Abstract and Data Service (NASA ADS).
I became interested in the climate science debate because I used to believe in anthropogenic global warming and climate change. I naturally enjoy debate and independent learning and so I wanted to understand the science of global warming, so that I could communicate and debate against “deniers” more knowledgeably. However, I experienced one of the greatest shocks and re-evaluations of my world-view when I discovered that the science which underlies global warming and anthropogenic climate change isn’t good science at all, but it is better described merely as the appearance of doing science – it is scientific sophistry!
Ultimately, I have scientifically concluded that global warming is an invented scheme for political control via manufactured politics using manufactured science, blaming everything on carbon dioxide which is actually the greenest and most environmentally-friendly gas there is. My research on climate (pseudo) science has actually uncovered a very humorous irony: the true “deniers” and “flat earthers” in the climate change debate are the people who believe in the greenhouse effect! They’re the people who deny that the climate changes naturally without humans, and that it changes at rates and magnitudes far greater than we are experiencing in modern times. And they base their climate alarmism literally on flat Earth theory. This has all been proven scientifically and all of the science actually proves that modern changes are rather benign and unimportant, but the alarmist and greenie ideologues continue to deny the science, and they have billions of dollars of charity money from oil companies and environmental organizations to continue to publicize their political reinterpretation (i.e. invention) of the actual scientific results.
