- Climatologist Dr. John Christy on Pope: ‘I’m puzzled by this encyclical…I don’t see disasters ahead…The real world simply doesn’t align with the theory’
Christy: 'We are asked to forgo the fundamental means by which human life flourishes today – carbon-based energy (coal, oil, natural gas). Why? ... because the by-product of this energy, carbon dioxide, must be "drastically reduced" to thwart a theorized "... extraordinary climate change and an unprecedented destruction of ecosystems." ... The real world simply doesn't align with the theory. Whether you are a Baptist (like me), a Buddhist or a Baha'i, the numbers come out the same ... and "science" is all about the numbers.'Posted April 29, 20155:57 PM by Marc Morano | Tags: climate depot, debate, franics, mediacd, religion, rome
- Scientific American features Morano at the Vatican
A delegation of American climate change skeptics traveled to Vatican City to counter-program the pope and secretary-general and warn that curbing fossil fuel consumption would be more harmful to the world's poor than the effects of climate change "With the pope coming out with such strong statements on global warming and endorsing a U.N. treaty ... the Vatican is essentially going to confuse Catholics into thinking that their positions on man-made global warming fears are now an article of faith," said Marc Morano, who runs a website, Climate Depot, that questions climate change science and policies.Posted 5:57 PM by Marc Morano | Tags: climate depot, debate, franics, mediacd, religion, rome
Say What?! The Hill: ‘Climate paradox’ – New study finds emissions cuts ‘will make the earth much hotter in the short term’
The Hill: Climate paradox: Emission cuts could ‘unmask’ deadly face of climate change, scientists warn - One the one hand, cutting fossil fuel pollution is necessary for avoiding severe destruction over the long term. But such cuts will make the earth much hotter in the short term. ...
These cuts remain one of the only examples of successful cuts to climate-warming pollution, but the new study found that those pandemic-era cuts in air pollution led to a rise in global temperatures. The findings, published on Wednesday in the journal NPJ Climate and Atmospheric Science, unveil a stark paradox at the heart of human-caused climate change.

Study: Lower emissions during the COVID lockdowns caused climate warming effect – ‘Short-lived cooling particles in the air was greatly reduced’
Via Engineering & Technology: While reduced air pollution emissions leads to better air quality, they also enable stronger climate warming effects, scientists in Sweden have said. ... It was discovered that while the concentrations of polluting short-lived air particles decreased significantly, the concentrations of longer-lived greenhouse gases were barely affected in the air mass over South Asia. The cooling effect of the aerosols comes from the fact that they reflect incoming solar radiation back into space. With a lower aerosol content, there is less cooling, and thus less ‘masking’ of the warming effect of the significantly longer-lived climate gases. ...
The results show that a complete phasing out of fossil-fuel combustion in favour of renewable energy sources with zero emissions could result in rapid ‘unmasking’ of aerosols, while greenhouse gases linger. ... “During a couple of decades, emission reductions risk leading to net climate warming due to the ‘masking’ effect of air particles, before the temperature reduction from reduced greenhouse gas emissions takes over.
John Kerry To Peasants: Die, To Save The Planet – ‘The world’s population must slash meat consumption’ – Statistician pushes back: ‘Net Zero is the lunatic idea’
Statistician Dr. WILLIAM M BRIGGS: Kerry claims “the world’s population must slash meat consumption.” ... Stopping people from farming will indeed stop their “emissions”. If by “emissions” he means breathing. Because once farmers stop farming, the food stops. And once the food stops, breathing stops. And once breathing stops, emissions stop. And once emissions stop, the nirvana of “net zero” will have been reached. ...
The government will shut down little- and mid-guy farms, while allowing mega-corporation donors—I mean farm owners—to keep running. Meaning Kerry, and Gates, are calling for a New & Improved! scientific method of collectivisation. Only instead of direct government ownership of farms, oligarchs will own them. The price they pay will be having Experts produce the regulations that govern them. Could it be a coincidence Gates has been buying up farmland?
2023 Edition: What the media won’t tell you about . . . hurricanes – The science and data reporters refuse to report – Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.
Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: The science and data reporters refuse to report: "Hurricane landfalls along the continental U.S. show no trends since at least 1900.""Development and growth are sufficient to explain why hurricane damage has increased dramatically."
