I Should Win a Prize!

A couple of years ago, I wrote a blog in which I put some of the climate related events of the past 18,000 years into the context of a single day. Climate cycles actually last hundreds of thousands of years, or more, and within those cycles, are shorter cycles, lasting tens of thousands of years, […]

Canada is Marching On. Glory Glory Hallelujah!

For the past 20 years global temperatures have not risen significantly. Neither have they fallen much; they have “plateaued.” But based on the increase in CO2 levels, computer models said that temperatures should have kept rising. Climate change alarmists insist that they have kept rising, or at least stayed high enough to keep setting some […]

C – O – 2 – is – good – for – you!

IWUZ reading the Economist Magazine  and was startled to see an article admitting that increases in atmospheric CO2 levels are causing a massive increase in plant growth around the world. Since 1982, an area double the size of the United States has begun to turn green. Why? Well, it’s partly because some colder areas have […]

DiCaprio, Chinooks and Hot Air

Speaking to Variety Magazine recently, Leonardo DiCaprio said that the warm chinook winds he encountered while filming in Calgary were a terrifying reminder of the seriousness of climate change. Of course Calgarians have loved the chinook since the city was founded in 1884, just as native North Americans living on the east slopes of the Rockies have […]

Global Warming! Climate change!! Move Up!!!

The climate is changing, and – except for the last 20 years – it’s been getting warmer. For millions of years, Earth’s climate has been in a continuous cycle of Ice Ages, the most recent of which reached its maximum extent about 18,000 years ago. Since then we have been in the generally warming half of […]

Uncle Sam finds oil under under the Maple Leaf

The Keystone XL Pipeline is truly a big deal, both for Canada and the United States. The Keystone will carry oil from the Canadian oil sands, and, from North Dakota, to the Gulf Coast for refining. It will reduce American dependence on offshore oil. Some Hollywood actors and professional agitators are wildly opposed. NASA’s former top climate “scientist”, James Hansen, has been arrested four […]

Za Terminator is baaack!

“Ve got to westoah za climate!!”  That’s Arnold the Terminator, about ten years ago. At the time I remember asking someone: “Restore it to what exactly? Cold as The Little Ice Age? Farming in Greenland like during the Middle Ages?” This year, Arnold Schwarzenegger is in Montana, filming a documentary purporting to show that climate change is […]
