  • Health Effects of Global Warming

    This article reviews three papers on the health effects of warming. A study published in 2015 examined 74 million deaths worldwide from 1985 to 2012 and found that the ratio of cold-related to heat-related deaths was a whopping 17 to 1. A study of heat-related deaths in the USA shows that as heat waves become more frequent, heat-related deaths decrease because of adaptation. There were 41 heat-related deaths/year/million population is the 1960s and 1970s dropping to 17 in the 1980s and to only 10 in the 1990s. A 2017 study of temperature-related hospital emergency visits in China over the period 2011–2014 shows that the risk is far greater for cold temperatures than for hot temperatures. When temperatures fall the risk of an emergency visit increased by 80% but when temperature rise the risk increases by only 15%. The length of hospital stays due to cold temperatures are ten times greater than that due to hot temperatures. […]

  • A Review of ‘Skeptical Science’ Alleged Myths

    The website ‘Skeptical Science.com’ is popular among climate alarmists. The website alleges to refute claims by climate skeptics that global warming is not a crisis. The website features a list of 10 “Most Used Climate Myths” by climate skeptics at the top left part of the webpage. I review and rebut each rebuttal of the 10 alleged myths. […]

  • Antarctic Ice Expansion Shows Climate Models Are Unreliable

    Despite a 20 percent increase in atmospheric CO2 over 40 years, and model predictions to the contrary, sea ice in the Antarctic has expanded for decades. Such observations are in direct opposition to the model-based predictions of the IPCC. This should give pause for thought about climate alarmism in general. The IPCC report predicts a multi-model average decrease of between 16 and 67 percent in the summer and 8 to 30 percent in the winter by the end of the century (IPCC, 2013). Models simulations give a 1 million sq. km reduction is sea ice, but measurement show a 300,000 increase from 1980 to 2005 due to falling temperatures. […]

  • To Put America First Is to Put Our Planet’s Climate First

    This article by Marko, Soon et al refutes the "popular delusion that man-made global warming will be dangerous and that, therefore, the Paris Agreement would be beneficial." They write "The Paris agreement is, in practice, a political tool for suppressing growth and redistributing wealth." The historical record shows that CO2 changes lag temperature changes. Climate models predicted that warming over the last 27 years (1990-2016) would be twice as much as actually observed. Extreme weather events like tornadoes and hurricanes have been decreasing over the last several decades. Warming and CO2 fertilization has caused a greening of the earth and increasing crop yields.
