All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Warming world temperatures could be mainly Earth’s natural rebound from the Little Ice Age

Syun-Ichi Akasofu (赤祖父 俊一 Akasofu Shun'ichi?, born December 4, 1930, SakuNagano, Japan) is the founding director of the International Arctic Research Center of the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), serving in that position from the centre's establishment in 1998 until January 2007. Previously he had been director of the university's Geophysical Institute from 1986. (wiki)

Akasofu earned a B.S. and a M.S. in geophysics at Tohoku UniversitySendai, Japan, in 1953 and 1957, respectively. He earned a Ph.D in geophysics at UAF in 1961. Within the framework of his Ph.D. thesis he studied the aurora. His scientific adviser was Sydney Chapman. Akasofu has been a professor of geophysics at UAF since 1964.
Akasofu was director of the Geophysical Institute from 1986 until 1999, during which time the Alaska Volcano Observatory was established and Poker Flat Research Range was modernised. He went on to become the first director of the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) upon its establishment in 1998, and remained in that position until 2007. The same year, the building which houses IARC was named in his honour.
Akasofu has served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Geophysical Research (1972–74) and the Journal of Geomagnetism & Geoelectricity (1972–present), respectively. Furthermore, he has served as a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Planetary Space Science (1969–present), the Editorial Advisory Board of Space Science Reviews (1967–77), and the Editorial Committee of Space Science Reviews (1977–present). As a graduate student, Akasofu was one of the first to understand that the northern aurora was actually an aurora of light surrounding the North Magnetic Pole.

Syun-Ichi Akasofu recently gave a talk, “The Forthcoming Ice Age,” at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. He thinks we humans are perhaps living in a period of warmth between cold periods and we consider it normal. Mankind’s effects on climate, he said, are a minor act in a much grander play.
Syun-Ichi Akasofu came to Alaska from Japan in 1958 to study the aurora. He became a worldwide expert and transitioned to people-and-budget management as director of the Geophysical Institute and later the International Arctic Research Center. He was essential in the birth of the latter, now a major UAF institution, by bringing in funding from Japan in the late 1990s.

Akafuso does not agree with current commentators who base their theories on the last few decades.

Akafuso is an ISI highly cited reporter. (link)

Akufuso's thoughts:
  • Global warming from 1975 on is real, he said, and he agrees that carbon dioxide levels are increasing dramatically. But he thinks warming world temperatures could be mainly Earth’s natural rebound from the Little Ice Age, a period from AD 1200 to 1850 when during some winters the Thames River froze in London and so did New York Harbor.

And where are we going:

“The public should be aware that we are at the peak of this change (the warm recovery from a past ice age),” he said. “We are luckily at the peak of an impulsive heat input.”As for today being different than yesterday, he said it is the natural state of things.“Climate change is happening all the time,” he said. “We should respect nature and its power.”

Peer reviewed study: We Know What Really Causes Climate Change (And It Has Nothing To Do With Human Beings)

Occurrence of interglacials over the past 800,000 years.
As reported by the Daily Wire:

A new study produced by a University of Wisconsin-Madison geoscientist and Northwestern astrophysicist presents an explanation of the fluctuations of the earth's temperatures that global warming alarmists are going to make sure to bury: The cycle of changes in the climate over the millennia is a result of changes in the amount of solar radiation, in part caused by small changes in the orbits of Earth and Mars. 
While the notion that the impact on earth's orbital cycle on solar radiation levels is

Help Climate Scientists avoid Personal CO2 Emissions

Eric Worrall

Imagine the pangs of conscience the Alarmist Scientists feel about their personal carbon footprints, as they jet about trying to save the world.

When climate scientists have full-time access to world class video conferencing technology, they will be able to avoid attending all those climate conferences in person. Climate scientists will be able to avoid the mind-numbing guilt they must currently feel about their personal carbon footprints, as they soar above our heads flying on CO2 belching jet aircraft to attend all those climate conferences.

Eric Worrall has created a petition to help these scientists.

Please take the time to show you care. Sign the Petition, and if you have time, leave a personal message of support for our hard working jetset climate community.
Don’t forget to send the petition to your friends, so they can sign as well.

Please sign the petition, Help Climate Scientists avoid Personal CO2 Emissions.

Prof Judith Curry points out flaws in GCMs

Professor Judith A. Curry is the author of over 180 scientific papers on weather and climate and is a recipient of the Henry G. Houghton Research Award from the American Meteorological Society in 1992. She recently retired from the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she held the positions of Professor and Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. She is currently President of Climate Forecast Applications Network.

She has written a paper on the flaws in Global Climate Models (GCMs) (link) which has been published by GWPF.

Executive Summary

There is considerable debate over the fidelity and utility of global climate models (GCMs). This

Naomi Klein admits that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism.

Former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Christiana Figueres gave the game away when she issued a press release admitting that their
aim is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

Naomi Klein in her latest book: This Changes Everything admits something very similar: (link)
Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.
AND it certainly isn't about Carbon dioxide.

MSM catches up with ACS blog on Entomophagy

Image: Startup
NBC News is catching up with our blog:

How Crickets Could Help Save the Planet
Edible insects are a viable, untapped resource that could help meet the food and water demands of the world's ever-expanding population. And it's really no wonder: Insects are highly nutritious, and also far more environmentally friendly to raise than conventional livestock. Compared with cows, pigs, or chickens, crickets require a fraction of the land, water, and food, and produce less greenhouse gases and ammonia.

Gee, we wrote a post (TIC) in September 2014

Eat Insects and save the Earth from Global Warming

It's good to see at least one of the MSM is catching up with the Australian Climate Sceptics.


Entomophagy is the human use of insects as food.
