Review of Climate Science

The slides from the presentation are given in link form below right.  The number of variables, the non-linear nature of the earth's climate, along with the number of cycles in solar orbit, ocean current and cycles, etc.  - make climate determination or even an accurate forecast a most difficult task. 



Climate Science is an area of science that has a good many disciplines from Astrophysicists to computer modeling to solar activity experts.  The history of the overall area dates back to the 1970's, although meteorology dates back further. 


The general area of Climate Science has received a great deal of money in various forms.  The question can be raised in a sincere manner has this money and the centralized control of grants and even conclusions been good or bad for this field?  Certainly it is unlike any other scientific area in that regard, and has shown a strong influence of political influence, beginning with the IPCC and various contributors, who showed some strong anti-scientific behavior with Climategate.

Is Democracy where we all "get it good and hard" or is it the best means to a free society?


Should we roll with the special interests, or make the government achieve its proper role, what is that role, and how to do this?


When do deficits and governments become too large?


Government is becoming more elitist while trying to sell corrections to problems it created, what makes this possible?
