Climate Truth

Is Our Climate Changing?
The climate of our planet is extremely complex, and is influenced by many factors that are not fully understood.
Here are a few things that we do know, based on evidence and research:

Carbon dioxide currently makes up just 0.04% of the entire atmosphere.
Deep ocean cycles and solar activity have a far greater impact on our climate.
The climate naturally cycles between warmer and cooler periods.
The most reliable data shows no warming in the U.S. since 2005.
Major hurricanes and strong tornadoes are becoming less frequent in the U.S.
Technology just makes it easier to see disasters when they happen.

Consider how the climate has shifted back and forth over the last century (years are approximate):
Hot with large areas of severe drought (the 1930s "Dust Bowl"), but also with significant hurricane activity (1930s) and many landfalling hurricanes (1950s). The all-time record high temperature in 27 states still date back to this period.
Cooler with lower overall hurricane activity; environmentalists were concerned about the threat of global cooling, especially during the 1970s.
Warmer with above normal hurricane activity, though less extreme than the 1930s-1950s. Just 8 states set all-time record highs during this period.

Everything presented here is based on evidence (with many sources given below). Unfortunately, those on the other side of the debate tend to use emotional arguments while forgetting about history and facts. I encourage you to continue reading with an open mind.

The Real Climate Change Agenda
There is a certain group of people who want to gain power and increase government control over our lives, and they are using the false narrative of human-induced climate change, coupled with our society's general ignorance of history, as they attempt to accomplish their goals. This has even been admitted by people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg. Ponder this quote:

"The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it." - H.L. Mencken

Now, with that quote in mind, consider these three groups of people:
Convincing people that there is a crisis, then convincing them that you know how to solve it, is a great (though deceitful) way to gain votes and win elections.
Creating hype about weather events that are actually quite normal is a great (though deceitful) way for the news media to attract (and influence) viewers.
Some are seeking power, fame, and research funding. Meanwhile, those who do have doubts are reluctant to express their views because others who have done so have encountered great difficulty in securing grants and funding for research.

Think about it: If catastrophic human-induced climate change is happening, and if the evidence is clear...
Why are there a number of serious, respected, credentialed scientists speaking out in opposition? They would have nothing to gain and everything to lose. If the atmosphere could be divided up into 2,500 equal parts, just 1 of those parts would contain CO2. Isn't it more reasonable to think that oceans, which cover over 70% of the Earth's surface and contain immense amounts of heat, would be a much more significant factor in our climate? Climate change, global warming, and global cooling activists have made many predictions since the 1970s, which have almost always ended up being wrong. Why should we trust those same types of predictions today? There are many documented instances of data being altered in order to fit the climate change agenda. If man-made climate change were obviously occurring, why would this be necessary?

We should always be wary when the people on one side of an issue refuse to debate with those on the other side, instead labeling them skeptics and deniers. Why would they need to act in such a way if the science was clear? Obviously, the evidence is not in their favor, so they attempt to discredit, scare, and silence those who have an opposing viewpoint.

You May Be Wondering... "Who Are You and What is Your Agenda?"
I am a longtime observer and follower of the weather, and a well-respected forecaster in my community. I earned a degree in Atmospheric Sciences in 2006 but have been observing and forecasting the weather since the mid 1990s. Some people just seem to be born with a love of the weather, and I am one of those people.

I have no monetary stake in either side of this debate. I make no profit from this website, similar to most people on my side of the debate. The other side is where the money, fame, and power is found. I simply have a desire for people to understand the truth, and I do not like to see people being routinely deceived.

Still, I don't want you to take my word for it. I simply ask you to read the information presented here and do your own research.

Climate Change: Harmful to Science
Climate change has become a political issue, harmful to science, because proper, unbiased scientific research is not being done as it should.

Most scientists agree that humans may be having a minor impact on our climate, and that doing sensible things to take better care of our environment should be encouraged. But it is harmful and irresponsible to give up our freedoms and harm our economy to solve a supposed climate crisis that does not actually exist.

Massive amounts of time, energy, and money are being poured into conferences and regulations to supposedly fight climate change. All of that could be used to affect real change toward problems that are actually occuring right now. We could do sensible things to clean up our environment and help fight disease and malnutrition around the world. So much is wasted on fighting an imaginary problem when we could be solving real problems instead.

I appreciate you reading this brief introduction and I hope you have done so with an open mind. I now encourage you to check out the videos and articles linked below, which contain far more details and evidence.

The word "science" comes from the Latin word for knowledge. Research intensely. Seek knowledge. Don't blindly believe everything the news media and politicians may say. Research the issue for yourself until you are sure that you have discovered the truth.

Links to News Stories and Scientific Explanations
More than three dozen article links follow. Some are short news articles, while others are longer and more scientific. This is just a small sampling of the available evidence; I encourage you to do further research beyond the information presented here.

Do 97% of Scientists Really Agree?
Dr. William Gray, who was widely known as one of the world's top hurricane experts, warned against climate "fear mongering" and explains why CO2 increases can cause only minimal warming.
Article #1Article #2
Similarly, founder of The Weather Channel, John Coleman, has appropriately called global warming the "greatest scam in history" and explains why there is no significant man-made warming.
Article #1Article #2
Veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi shows that ocean temperatures have dropped significantly since 2015, arctic ice is expanding, and the U.S. is becoming wetter, not drier.
Article #1Article #2
There are several organizations that have formed to help combat misinformation regarding climate. Two of them are Friends of Science and the International Climate Science Coalition, where many scientists are boldly speaking out about the truth. Have you heard that 97% of climate scientists supposedly agree about climate change? That figure is actually very misleading and has been proven to be factually untrue, but many continue to use the 97% figure as if it is a fact.
Link #1Link #2Link #3Link #4
In fact, more than 440 scientific papers were published in 2019 alone that cast doubt on the idea of catastrophic climate change and pointing out that climate model forecasts are usually wrong. Clearly, this is not "settled science."

NOAA's New Climate Reference Network
NOAA's new Climate Reference Network, which was "specifically designed and deployed for quantifying climate change on a national scale" (according to NOAA's website), actually shows no warming since 2005. In fact, there appears to be a slight cooling trend.
Article Link
Data from the Climate Reference Network (CRN) showed primarily below-normal temperatures in the United States for 2019, revealing systematic problems with other methods that supposedly indicated that 2019 was the second-hottest year on record.
Article #1Article #2
Data from the CRN strongly disagreed with the claim that July 2012 was the hottest July on record. NOAA continues to use the older network, which is plagued with problems, for its data rather than the new, state-of-the-art CRN.
Article Link
Numerous Proven Errors
A Y2K computer glitch incorrectly led to 1998 being labeled the hottest year ever. This was corrected in 2007, but it was corrected silently, with little or no media coverage of the error.
Article #1Article #2
A former NOAA scientist confirms that his colleagues manipulated climate records to make the data show more warming than what actually occurred.
Article Link
The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970. Countless doomsday predictions made then and in subsequent years have failed miserably.
Article #1Article #2Article #3
In September 2019, the scientific journal Nature admitted errors in a global warming study that it had published. Despite the fact that these errors were easily discovered, they were somehow missed by multiple peer reviewers before the article was published, and it took the journal a full year to publish the retraction.
Article Link
Research has shown that as much as 61% of U.S. temperature data collected in recent years is actually derived from computer models, where people are able to introduce formulas to easily alter the data. The result is a significant amount of altered, fake data which does not correspond well to actual observations.
Article Link
Many other past climate predictions have frequently been proven wrong. For example, in 1989, the U.N. warned that "entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth" by 2000. What reason, then, do we have to trust current predictions that are similar?
Article #1Article #2Article #3
Accurate History & Evidence
Atlantic hurricane activity is known to go in cycles of about 60 years. Though there are normal year-to-year variations, we are currently in a period with declining Atlantic hurricane activity overall. Between 2005 and 2017, there was an unusually long period where no major hurricanes made landfall in the United States.
Article Link
In the summer of 2019, there were many news reports, attempting to create fear and hysteria, about the fires in the Amazon. However, NASA states that in 2019, the Amazon is burning at near average rates. Creating fear and hysteria, though, is right in line with the overall agenda of those pushing the idea of climate change.
Article Link
Are you concerned about the supposed increase in forest fires? Actually, based on the data, global fires have declined 25% since 2003, thanks to economic growth and re-forestation.
Article #1Article #2Article #3
Have you been told that higher CO2 levels have led to warming temperatures? The evidence actually shows that temperatures increase before (not after) CO2 increases.
Article Link
Even if the Arctic has shown significant warming over the last couple of decades, are we certain it's because of our actions? Those who know and understand climate history "recall rapid Arctic warming has happened often and naturally."
Article Link
Tornado data has been kept in the United States since 1954. The total number of tornadoes has remained fairly constant over that time, but the number of strong tornadoes has decreased.
Article Link
Even If You're Still Unconvinced About the Data
Sensible care of the environment is good for all of us, but excessive government regulation is not. Even without much regulation, the U.S. was the world leader in CO2 reduction in 2019. In fact, our emissions have dropped about 15% since peaking in the early 2000s.
Article Link
The climate change agenda has the worst impact on the poor and on working families, who ultimately pay higher prices for the goods and services they need due to unnecessary policies and regulations. For evidence of this, look no farther than Democrat-controlled California.
Article #1Article #2
Even if you are still unconvinced and believe the Earth is warming, why it is such a common assumption that a warmer Earth is a bad thing? The Earth has been warmer during periods in the past, and there are numerous benefits that come from a warmer planet.
Article Link
Concluding Thoughts
If climate change activists really believed what they were saying, wouldn't their lifestyles show it? There may be a few examples where such people actually are practicing what they preach, but the vast majority of climate change alarmists live comfortable, high-carbon lifestyles which are full of hypocrisy as they fly around in private jets and lecture the rest of us on sacrifices we should make. Sadly, what those people are seeking is not a cleaner earth but power, money, and control.
Article #1Article #2Article #3
In 2015, the executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change admitted that the goal of activists is not to save the world from disaster but to destroy capitalism. Others have made similar admissions.
