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.



Climate Change by Dr. Neil Hutton

Technical Rating: star
Geologist Dr. Neil Hutton writes about climate change and how the IPCC has ignored or manipulated evidence to promote the AGW theory. Dr. Hutton shows that climate has always changed and that the Sun has a large effect on climate, while CO2 can at most have a minor effect. Climate Change was originally published as a ten-part series in the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists' monthly magazine, The Reservoir, in 2009. FoS thanks the CSPG for its permission to post this article.



Climate Change Reconsidered - NIPCC

Technical Rating: star star
The 2009 Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), coauthors Dr. S. Fred Singer and Dr. Craig Idso and 35 contributors and reviewers present an authoritative and detailed rebuttal of the findings of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The report shows that CO2 is not a significant driver of climate change.
