Climate Alarm and the Abomination of Desolation

Why doesn’t the alarmist greenhouse effect exist?  Because alarmists think that the Sun and sunshine can’t melt ice without it, even on Mercury, let alone Earth.  Of course, aside from all of the basic physics and mathematics we’ve discussed here, … Continue reading

Anthony Watts and Robert Brown are Liars (or at least very stupid idiots)

The Fraud of the AGHE Part 11: Quantum Mechanics & The Sheer Stupidity of “GHE Science” on WUWT

Sophistry Part 2: “Analogously, but Different”, or why the IPCC Lies, or how the IPCC Disproves the Greenhouse Effect

According to the IPCC, “greenhouse gases” send back to the surface some IR radiation which originally came from the surface, thus increasing the surface temperature: “The Sun powers Earth’s climate, radiating energy at very short wavelengths, predominately in the visible … Continue reading
