David used to work in the climate industry. Joanne used to explain the carbon dioxide story on radio. But after looking at the evidence we became skeptics. Joanne started blogging on the issue in 2008, and her blog is now the third biggest skeptic website in the world.
The basic climate model is the application of “basic physics” to climate. It is essentially why establishment climate scientists believe in the carbon dioxide theory, despite considerable contrary empirical evidence. Dating back to 1896, the model contains serious architectural errors. Fixing the architecture but keeping the basic physics, future warming due to carbon dioxide is a fifth to a tenth of official estimates. Less than 20% of the global warming since the 1970s was due to increasing carbon dioxide.
Global temperatures will come off the current plateau into a sustained and significant cooling, beginning 2017 or maybe as late as 2021. The cooling will be about 0.3 °C in the 2020s, taking the planet back to the global temperature that prevailed in the 1980s. This was signaled (though not caused) by a fall in underlying solar radiation starting in 2004, one of the three largest falls since 1610 when records started. There is a delay of one sunspot cycle, currently 13 years (2004+13 = 2017).
Hedging against the carbon dioxide theory of global warming, taking advantage of upcoming global cooling, and performing due diligence on climate for financial bodies.
The manmade global warming paradigm has distorted science, economics, finance, and government subsidies. What could possibly go wrong? Cooling follows warming as night follows day, so shouldn't you hedge your bets?
The mainstream media only allow discussion of a narrow range of climate issues, and have never published any data (graphs and photographs) we’ve given them.
We don’t hold official government positions, so our authority derives from the data. It’s as if they want to be seen to let us be heard, but they don’t really want us to be too credible or too convincing.
On the Internet we can make the arguments we want, and show you the data that backs us up.
Watch and hear us in action!
The tax-funded broadcaster took lying-by-omission to extremes and then went even further, using tricky editing to make us appear to say things we never said. And we can prove it—because we filmed them filming us.
We are routinely attacked and smeared by those on the climate gravy train and their minions.
In 2007 we made a bet for US$6,000 or US$9,000 (depending on who wins) on how much the world warms to 2017 and 2027. How are we going?
Our climate work is funded out almost entirely out of our savings and from donations. To support more research and commentary like this, please donate to us at Joanne’s blog.
