A quick antidote to some of the superficial nonsense churned out daily that claims to be about the Earth’s climate [see video].

Climate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities, but actual climate scientists are not so much click-bait as real celebrities, and journalists seem more interested in click-bait than deeply informed commentary. We seem to be transforming into a society that values  popularity more than accuracy, or perhaps we always were, but it just wasn’t as obvious as it is today. Richard Lindzen is one of the most esteemed climate scientists in the world, and one to whom you should pay attention.

    The 1997-98 and 2015-16 El Ninos stand out on the graph below. The rest is unremarkable.

    NASA confirms that satellite temperatures are good

    Yeah, another confirmation that the satellite global temps are real. But what’s this? They cut it off 2 years ago.

    They cut off the study, and the media comments at the top of the El Nino. Thus, we are dying of heat. What about now?

    So, the sat data is good when it conforms to their story, but not when it doesn’t. 🙂

    And even that trend in the sat data is nowhere near the nasa projections of death.

    Debunked, study forgot the effects of the diesel transport to the tankstation and the energy cost for diesel production. They also asumed that none of the battery would be recycled compared to the whole diesel car to be recycled.
