History: Cold is Horrifically Bad for Humanity

By Gregory Wrightstone Before climate science became politicized, historians called warm periods “climate optima” because Earth’s ecosystems and humanity benefited from the blessed warmth. Conversely, during cold periods, the human condition declined. There is a strong correlation between the rise and fall of temperature and the fortunes of great civilizations. After centuries of beneficial warmth… Continue Reading

Megadrought? What Megadrought?

The recent drought in the southwestern United States provided fodder for extreme reporting from the mainstream media consistently linking the so-called megadrought to man-made climate change.

Summer: The Best of Times for Climate Alarmists

By Gregory Wrightstone August and September are great months to be a professional climate alarmist like Dr. Michael Mann of the University of Pennsylvania. You have hurricanes making landfall, wildfires seemingly everywhere, the odd F-4 tornado wreaking devastation, and you can pretend that these never happened before we started adding CO2 to the atmosphere. Plus, you have virtually… Continue Reading

The judge accepted as fact allegations made by plaintiffs in the suit, which we will systematically… Continue Reading

The Lancet’s Scientific Chicanery on Mortality Exposed by CO2 Coalition

By Gregory Wrightstone A deception perpetrated by The Lancet is another example of how once respected institutions of the scientific community are not above abandoning principle to advance the fearmongering of a planet warming to purportedly dangerous levels. As reported in the CO2 Coalition’s online newsletter, The Lancet published a study showing that cold-related deaths… Continue Reading

EPA Uses Misinformation to Promote Climate Fear

By Gregory Wrightstone One year ago, if you had visited the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) page on heat waves (Climate Change Indicators: Heat Waves) you would have found the lead chart to be the one below (Figure 1). It shows that heat waves peaked 90 years ago and have been at a relatively low level… Continue Reading

Data Shows We’re NOT Seeing Record Heat

by Gregory Wrightstone Hotter Than the Fourth of July! It was widely reported recently that July 4th, 2023 was the hottest day in Earth’s recorded history. Paulo Ceppi, a climate scientist at London’s Grantham Institute stated: “It hasn’t been this warm since at least 125,000 years ago, which was the previous interglacial.” And, of course,… Continue Reading

More Good News About the Decline in Fires

By Gregory Wrightstone In our last newsletter, we provided a chart revealing that the number of fires in Canada had been in a decades-long decline. This reflects a global trend in decreasing fire. Beginning in 1998, advanced satellite detection of fires was initiated. The data shown in the chart to the right confirm that the area burned… Continue Reading

More Carbon Dioxide Is Good, Less Is Bad

By Gregory Wrightstone People should be celebrating, not demonizing, modern increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). We cannot overstate the importance of the gas. Without it, life doesn’t exist. First, a bit of history: During each of the last four glacial advances, CO2’s concentration fell below 190 parts per million (ppm), less than 50 percent… Continue Reading

Shining Light on Science Education’s Dark Age

by Gregory Wrightstone The science teachers’ bureaucracy is driving climate education into an unquestioning adherence to unscientific methodology.
