Editorial from Energy & Environment - July 2013

Technical Rating: star
This editorial from Dr. Arthur Rorsch and Dr. Peter Ziegler introduces the Special Issue of Energy & Environment which challenges the Anthropogenic Global Warming hypothesis and the projections of the IPCC. The set papers show that climate models fail to replicate past climate variations and "the frequency of extreme weather events has not increased during the last few decades." The authors write "the effect of variations in solar activity has been seriously underestimated by the IPCC."



Climate Change on a Watery Planet

Technical Rating: star star
This review of climate science by three Dutch scientists compares the hypothesis that anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases is the main cause of recent climate change to the hypothesis that the sun is the main driver of climate change. The paper shows that water plays an important role in stabilizing the climate through evaporation and changing cloud cover. The paper lists numerous discrepancies between the AGW predictions and observations. Changing solar ultraviolet radiation, and the flow of charged particles have a significant effect on atmospheric circulation and clouds.



Mechanisms of Climate Change

Technical Rating: star star
Dr. Peter Ziegler presents this comprehensive review of the mechanisms of climate change. Dr. Ziegler is a professional geologist and was a professor of Global Geology at the University of Basel, Switzerland. His key conclusions: Climate change during industrial times can be fully explained by natural processes. IPCC underestimates the effects of direct and indirect solar climate forcing but overestimates CO2 forcing by assuming unrealistic positive temperature feedbacks from water vapor and clouds. The IPCC consensus on anthropogenic CO2 emissions causing Global Warming cannot be reconciled with basic data and is therefore challenged.

2011 NIPCC Interim Report Climate Change Reconsidered

Technical Rating: star
The 2011 Interim Report from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change presents an overview of the research on climate change. Relying on empirical data rather than theory, they find that natural causes are very likely to be the dominant cause of climate change that took place in the twentieth century. The net effect of continued warming and rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere is most likely to be beneficial to humans, plants, and wildlife.



Climate Change During Geological and Recent Times

Technical Rating: star
Dr. Peter Ziegler presents this comprehensive review of climate change through geological times and recent times. Dr. Ziegler is a professional geologist and was a professor of Global Geology at the University of Basel, Switzerland. His key conclusions: IPCC underestimates solar climate forcing while overestimating CO2 forcing. The IPCC consensus on anthropogenic CO2 emissions causing global warming is not compatible with basic data and is therefore challenged by scientists at large. See also the additional notes from the speech balloons at the top left of most pages. Updated December 2011.
