El Nino: Nature’s Ginormous Climate Change Battery

by Ron Barmby Derakhshani’s Hypothesis: The El Nino—Southern Oscillation is an energy storage battery so big it drives more than the weather; it drives climate change. CO2 is a pointless diversion. In a recent podcast with Tom Nelson [available after the jump], Dr. Maaneli (Max) Derakhshani clearly states that he is not a climate scientist—he is a… Continue Reading

Think We Can Model the Climate? Clouds Get in the Way!

By Ron Barmby I’ve looked at climate change from both sides now, and I have found common ground between proponents and skeptics of the belief that climate change is largely caused by humans. When it comes to forecasting global temperatures, distinguished experts in both camps agree a dominant variable cannot be simulated in computer models… Continue Reading
