How to Use This Site

This site is an integrated body of knowledge on climate and the movement.   It is intended to be used as a teaching tool.    This is our best attempt at presenting knowledge that we as scientists see as the best understanding at this time.  As scientists we are interested in the truth and in fighting what we see as pseudo-science.


The site is organized in layers so one can see an overview and find links to more details on any of the topics below.   Or one can dive into more detailed presentations (and there are 3 layers) and even find more detailed technical pages on various topics.  So it is intended to be a learning or knowledge base in that regard.

And the other form of the topical map is below by category.  Once can also use the top menu to select any major topic and follow the line of inquiry there as well.


Using the overview at the top will take on to the presentation version which itself is a detailed overview of the material. 


The general outline of the material is also found at the Link.


So there a number of ways to use the material in an ordered fashion.


This website contains a broad analysis of Earth’s temperature and climate as it is affected by the Sun, the atmosphere, the Earth’s surface, and life on Earth, including humans. Pertinent facts from the history of Earth’s climate will provide a basis for what we have learned from the past, and what it means for the future to facilitate a rational discussion, reinforced with an understandable discussion of science. Above all is the challenge to reason with us, for we are not telling you what to think. FAQ can answer a number of common questions. Lean in and see what you can learn.

The intro has access to the overall quick look and the other 2 layers of presentation.  Follow your curiosity.  And mouseover the image and see the links and topics that are covered.

The atmosphere is a diverse and chaotic part of our earth. The climate history is examined as to what we can learn. The climate cycles and the natural causes are quite numerous. Volcanoes, solar, oceans and even clouds play a major role in our climate as they do in our weather. Temperature data as it is being used has to also be examined for it is full of accuracy questions.

The earth is complex not in its current form only but in its history.  And one cannot just think about earth but also the variation in orbits of the sun relative to the earth, and even the impact of a variation of Jupiter and Saturn's and our moon's orbit.   Examining the complexity of the atmosphere and the level of CO2 and how it can impact any heat captured in the atmosphere is a critical piece of understanding how the earth's climate might be impacted by CO2 increases in the future.

What roles do CO2 molecules play on our planet.   It is a trace gas of life without man's emissions.   How might these impacts be affected by an increase in those emissions.

Often discussions about CO2 begin with the GHE (greenhouse gas effect) and its warming of the planet. These theories are quite widespread and will be examined.  The carbon cycle is very important to understand the role and journey of CO2, as are the CO2 Facts. Many myths persist in the media. There are IPCC models that attempt to predict the future climate, but the results thus far are poor.  The examination of alternative models for the past century provides insight into the drivers of climate.

The various facts associated with CO2 over the course of history and how it compares with current and near future conditions is relevant to any climate predictions.   One needs to look at the amount of human emissions and how much the outgoing energy is affected by an increase.    How well do the IPCC GCM climate models work and what are the results?  Also several attempts have been made to statistically correlate the climate over the past century to the various potential causes including the natural causes.   The results will inform you as to what is likely to occur in the coming century.

The IPCC at the UN has been the driver of the political movement that AGW has become. Claims of consensus of 97% will be examined and seen as untrue. The label of Denier has been used freely with intimidation intended. Predictions however continue to fail on almost all fronts. The Paris Accord was a flawed agreement with little impact. And evidence of data tampering are quite apparent.

One has to look at the politics and the attempts to use what should be considered bad science as a club on the public calling for immediate increase in governmental controls and even taxes, and as some have suggested a increase in the power of a world government.   Politics in the environmental arena is not inherently a bad thing, unless the claims are more suspect or even unfounded.  However this assessment of not good must be made with some of the data tampering, the claims of settled science, and the forecasts of doom and gloom along with other claims of truth.

The needs to continue the Energy generation for now and the future are essential to mankind. The means and forecasts will be examined. Some say however despite any doubt about AGW that we should seek precaution and do something just in case. The so-called precautionary principle is a foundation element for AGW in addition to the political goals. Can this be afforded, or what is our best policy going forward.  What should the Policies be?

The various policies of AGW are well underway despite the lack of true scientific justification.   But some respond to this statement by saying we should do something just in case.   Do what and to what impact and at what cost?    Read about the Paris Agreement and see if you would advocate for governments trying to find a knob on climate.
