Last month was the third hottest July on record? The facts say otherwise

Tony Heller – August 9, 2022 [Context: The Biden Administration claims July was third hottest on record in the US.

Why the Sun, Not CO2, Heats the Oceans Revisiting the Debate: Does Greenhouse Back-radiation Warm the Oceans?

By Jim Steele – August 1, 2022 Because infrared heat waves penetrates less than a millimeter into the ocean’s surface, many skeptics argued it is impossible to blame rising CO2 for ocean warming. However, several prominent skeptic scientists, people who I have great respect for, also weighed in arguing it was silly and useless to… Continue Reading

Net-zero, Reality Check #4

Donn Dears – 14 June 2022 Neither wind, nuclear or PV solar, can achieve net-zero carbon, but could a combination of the three achieve net-zero carbon by 2050?
