Anthropogenic Global Warming - Failed Predictions


Conclusion:   Predictions not made, but which should have been:


“The Pause, a very significant drop in the rate of temperature increase:   Based on more than 30,000 measurements, the rising trend in world temperatures was confirmed ended in 1997.”    -  Daily Mail, January, 2012


In the last 20 years, humans have released over a third of all the CO2 produced since the beginning of the industrial period. Yet global mean surface temperature has remained essentially constant for at least 15 years – a fact that has been acknowledged by the IPCC, whose models failed to predict it.


In January of 2017 there were headlines of there being up to 3 feet of snow in the Sahara!  This was definitely not predicted.

This is quite a string of failed predictions.   Many more can be found.  We have not found any that did come true, but maybe some reader would be able to find one.  We would welcome more information.

We should revisit occasionally what the proper role of government is.   As the constitution was a good sense of direction, we need a core set of principles to add in order to deal with the future.


So many want to engineer society, remove risk, assist certain groups, rather than let individuals thrive and raise communities.  Why?


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?

Currently as a society, we are having a most difficult time discussing political issues.  What is driving this?   And why a rebirth in political culture would be a good thing.


Market Economy

Are "markets" dead as some would conjecture? Or is free enterprise what got us here?


Economic Theories

At the heart of economics there are several possible economic schools of thought, the essence of these schools of thought and how they relate to our lives.
