IAC & Media Admit The Well Is Poisoned – But Insist The Water Is Clean

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailThey all admit the IPCC is flawed and in need of an overhaul, yet they still insist the science is correct. Go figure. That’s pure rubbish, of course.

Arctic Sea Ice Highly Likely To Fall Below Last Year’s Extent

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailThe blogosphere is now filled wth Arctic sea ice projections and opinions, and why not? It’s a game that adds fun to the science.

China’s Projected CO2 Emissions

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailIn my last post I wrote about China’s aggressive, yet legitimate, expansion of its energy supply.

My bet is that they’re going to ignore it and focus instead on USA’s and Europe’s emissions. What I […]
