Think of this in the context of whatever investments you have.
With respect to some of the comments below the video: Comment: Consumerwatchdog.org thinks that 100 million $ from ExxonMobil to fund Stanford and Mark Jacobsens research weakens public trust in his research results. Response: https://bit.ly/2YdPkmy This report at same site … Continue reading
Professor Michael Mann is a personal hero of mine, principally because he connected, for me, the world of time series and principal components with climate science, showing there might be some small thing I can contribute to the discussion, and … Continue reading
There was some skepticism expressed regarding my claim that black body radiation equilibrium physics used to argue the inevitability of climate change in a world having higher greenhouse gas concentrations (per Arrhenius) had something crucial to do with the operation … Continue reading
LONG CHOICES: On Climate and Being Carbon Dioxide How does the Earth surface stay warm at night? How much carbon have people added to our atmosphere? How long does it remain there? What is this doing to Earth’s climate? Why? … Continue reading
I hadn’t gotten around to reading Mark Richardson’s “New study by Skeptical Science author finds 100% of atmospheric CO2 rise is man-made” until this afternoon. I find its import, along with fellow commentators Masters and Benestad, to be on the … Continue reading
Professor John Carlos Baez summarizes a 2012 article from Nature Climate Science on both the urgency of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the way we can get there. In fact, 21 different ways are proposed, all which could be used in combination. … Continue reading
Not knowing a risk is not the same as being safe. If presented with the choice of either losing $500 with 100% certainty, or that of losing $1000 with 50% certainty and $0 with 50% certainty, many if not most … Continue reading
Be there. Details available at the Sierra Club site: Forward On The Climate.
From Dr Dave Petley’s The Landslide Blog at the American Geophysical Union, the collapse of the Illulissat Glacier in Greenland. Amazing stuff. When things fail at this scale, you can see mathematics come to life. The volume of the ice collapsing … Continue reading
There was a very fine hour devoted to preventing climate disruption on Ira Flatow‘s Science Friday, on National Public Radio. Guests were excellent: Representative Henry Waxman, California Eileen Claussen, President, Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) John Ashton, Former climate change ambassador, … Continue reading
Updated, 2018-12-24, 01:11 ET “Climate Disruption: What Math and Science Have to Say” is the title and incredibly compelling subject of a talk to be given in San Francisco on 4th March 2013 at the Palace of Fine Arts, 7:30 … Continue reading
Hansen, Sato, and Ruedy have another update of global temperature through 2012 available. Their paper demonstrates there was no statistically significant increase or decrease in global temperature since 2010 despite the presence of a strong La Niña. The latter would … Continue reading
