European Commission Reflection Paper Puts “Climate Change” Near Bottom Of List Of Concerns!

If one were to rate the investment made by governments globally aimed at creating concern for a potential problem, then the huge investment in climate change fear by now would definitely have to be rated as “junk” quality. Never has so much seen so little return. Hundreds of billions have been invested so far with the […]

U of Canberra Expert: Doubling Atmospheric CO2 Would Increase "Heating By less Than 0.01°K"

U of Canberra Expert: Doubling Atmospheric CO2 Would Increase “Heating By less Than 0.01°K”

Recently Kenneth Richard posted a flurry of papers showing that the CO2 climate sensitivity estimate has been trending sharply downward over the years, which means CO2’s claimed effect on warming has been highly exaggerated. Now another opinion has come to light, further supporting the notion that the recent rise in CO2 in fact is having […]
