Models with dire predictions like these have misdirected energy policy. What follows explains why models have failed…
estimates suggest everything from no role for the Sun in recent decades (implying that recent global warming is mostly human-caused) to most of the recent global warming being due to changes in solar activity (that is, that recent global warming is mostly natural).
Reefs are apparently in terminal decline. But how many species should an average inshore reef have? How many corals are there at Pixie Reef, near Cairns?
IPCC is wrong to say temperature changes ‘unprecedented’. They are not unusual in magnitude, direction or rate of change. This counters catastrophism.
The relative contributions of natural and human-caused climate change remains poorly understood and it is misleading for the IPCC to suggest otherwise.
The Bureau of Meteorology is one of Australia’s most important national public institutions; so much depends on our knowledge of past climate and our ability to predict future trends and events. The Bureau’s recordings of maximum and minimum temperatures across Australia provide information that is important to our understanding of such trends and patterns in […]
Climate science is all at sea if the ‘experts’ won’t admit what they simply don’t know, argues journalist and Norfolk Island resident Susan Prior. If you want to gain some perspective on life, the globe and our place in it, there’s no better place to go than a diminutive, remote rock in the South Pacific: […]
In the last 18 months, preoccupied by a nasty virus, we have learned that “science” can be a very flexible concept, used to justify all sorts of things. In relation to climate change, the IPA has sought to address this dilemma with a series of publications, the latest this year. This one assembles the writings […]
On Three Counts Climate Models and Energy Policy Have Failed
New resarch from the IPA reveals that records from living and fossilised corals show natural variations in temperature stretching back thousands of years.
