Climate Videos Recommended by Bob

A number of climate videos help demonstrate that there is no “climate crisis,” we are not in danger of a “climate tipping point,” and that claims that the “science is settled” concerning catastrophic global warming are false. I highly recommend these videos at the links below to give you understanding.  [Some of these videos are accessed via links to the internet and are not archived on the CASF site.  If any internet links appear to be broken or no longer available, please let us know about it (see menu item Meta > Contact) so that we may fix the problem or remove the reference to it.  Ed.]

Dr. Brian Tinsley, Professor Emeritus, University of Texas at Dallas gives an outstanding and unique presentation on solar influences on weather and climate change in the Youtube video below.  He outlines a number of very important solar-related effects on climate that are ignored or missing from the IPCC climate models.  He provided this briefing at the “Observing the Frontier” conference held in Albuquerque, NM during 15 – 17 February 2019.

Sea Level Rise.  During the 2014 International Climate Change Conference 9 in Las Vegas, one day at breakfast I sat with Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook of Western Washington University and briefly met another Geologist, Dr. Nils Axel Morner from Sweden who has devoted his career to the study of sea level change and has numerous publications on that subject.

Morner is quite the observational Geologist, and has reached quite different conclusions from the computer modelers, whom he takes to task in this video from 2016 https://youtu.be/SByP1IGBYJA

NB the tree in the Maldives about the 13:00 mark, cut down by “climate scientists” from Australia because the existence of that tree belied the catastrophic sea level rise proclaimed by the climate alarmist community, and which is mentioned in this post: https://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/03/19/despite-popular-opinion-and-calls-to-action-the-maldives-is-not-being-overrun-by-sea-level-rise/

Dr Morner presented the results of his latest observations at ICCC-13 in Europe. This post http://notrickszone.com/2019/02/13/world-leading-ocean-expert-calls-sea-level-rise-claims-by-climate-scientists-anti-scientific-nonsense/ describes his presentation.

Morner has this interesting video, https://youtu.be/Z8g0aUm16FU in which he analyzes the post-Wisconsin Ice Age rebound of Scandinavia after most of the ice melted, and finds a zero line between measured sea level fall (actually where the land is undergoing glacial rebound) and sea level rise at the Kattegat between Denmark and Sweden which has four tide gages. Next, he has interesting observations from New Caledonia and concludes with an analysis that there are signs of a rotational eustasy driven by earth moon super cycles having the familiar 60-year cycles, Solar Grand Cycles of maximum and minimum, and a beat of the Sun-Earth-Moon and giant planets as a system. To Morner, CO2 plays no role and he openly takes the IPCC COP-24 participants to task.

Professor Valentina Zharkova discusses solar magnetic fields and dynamos and their effects on global climate in this very interesting Youtube video.  Professor Zharkova has developed a set of equations that can be used to predict future sunspot cycles that are quite accurate and reproduce past sunspot cycles quite well.  She says that we are rapidly approaching a solar minimum similar to the Maunder minimum.   She expects this mimimum to begin around 2020 and last until around 2053 or about 3 sunspot cycles.  Consequently, we should know in 5 to 10 years how well her prediction appears to be panning out.  This is an excellent presentation complete with slides and is highly recommended viewing.

This short, 5-minute video by Richard Lindzen, emeritus prof from MIT, groups Global Warming/Climate Change people into three groups, IPCC “believers,” Climate Skeptical Scientists, and agitators, including Politicians, Environmental Activists, and Mainstream Media.  Groups One and Two are scientists who agree on much, but not the climate catastrophe proclaimed by Group 3, the non-scientist loudmouths.  Lindzen was described by prof, the late Hans A. Panofsky, as “the brightest young meteorologist in the country today, but that description was fifty-one years ago!  This video is worth watching a couple of times.

This video by Richard Lindzen,  is fewer than three minutes long, yet it describes the corruption brought about by money in the form of government, i.e., political grants.

Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist who brings a keen analysis to the notion that, one way to bring us all together is to “fix global warming” in this six and one half minute video.  Peterson’s strength is in providing workable solutions to complex social problems and his analytical skills are on display here, but he shreds the idea that there are simple solutions. He brings doubt to the climate modeling enterprise.

Especially in New Mexico, there is a strong effort to browbeat oil and gas producers for drilling, production, transport and storage facilities that might leak natural gas, also known as methane.  In the past, in the early 1970s, I witnessed a laboratory where scientists were estimating laser atmospheric absorption losses by propagating a laser through a long tube into which various gases and mixtures of gases were introduced, then measuring the loss in power as different lasers were propagated through that tube; it is called a White Cell.  I assume that is how the IPCC determines that Methane is a powerfully absorbing and emitting greenhouse gas some 25x the power of CO2. However true that may be in a White Cell, it is NOT true in the real atmosphere, because Methane, CH4 rapidly oxidizes into CO2 and Water Vapor. As natural gas, methane makes an ideal heating fuel because it oxidizes and releases heat in the form of a gas flame. Sorry for the long introduction to Tony Heller’s video, The Big Methane Lie, but Tony shows other elements in this story which reveal the deceptions by the Alarmist community in this 10:27 video.
*********************************

Quite unlike many climate alarmists, Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, starts off by describing the naturally occurring warm and cold periods revealed through history the past 2000 years in this video of fewer than five minutes. Moore concludes by noting the nasty and mean-spirited nature of the name calling by the Alarmists.

I really like Tony Heller’s videos; they present a lot of information in a short period of time. In “The Fundamental Deception of Climate Science,”  Tony uses a global warming graphic from the halls of the National Center on Atmospheric Science to disprove the notion that CO2 controls Temperature.  This is not the only time Tony uses NCAR’s own publication to show the false nature of the Global Warming Alarm; he uses an NCAR graphic from 1974 during the global cooling scare to show how NASA has changed previously published data for political purposes, seems like fraud to Tony, and me. A worthwhile ten minutes on a good topic to explore!

In this video Tony Heller plays a video persuasive to some by British video maker “Potholer,” who purports to describe initiation of ice ages by small perturbations. Potholer tries to say that the recent increase of <CO2> by 100 PPM is the perturbation which will set off a huge global warming episode.  Using critical thought, Tony’s video explores the notion of feedbacks and shows how Potholer’s contention is wrong.  I especially like Tony’s statements along the lines of, if uncontrolled feedback were occurring, we would have out of control hothouse earth or out of control snowball earth. “Debunking the Debunker,” is 18 ½ minutes long.

The Climate Change Cartoons in this link are provided for your amusement.  More cartoons will be added as they become available.

Physicist, Dr. Mariana Alves Pereira discusses the health hazards from low-frequency, infra-sound produced by sources such as the wind mills used to generate electricity.

Dr. Patrick Michaels is interviewed by Mark Levin on Life Liberty and Levin in this video presented by Fox News Channel.  Dr. Michaels provides answers to a wealth of questions on climate change (global warming) with emphasis on why and how the climate science is being corrupted.

The effect of cosmic rays on earth’s climate.  This is a video presentation by Professor Nir Shaviv from Hebrew University in Israel.

Benefits of Carbon Dioxide.  Here is one from CO2Science.org which shows the benefits to plants and crops from enriching the atmosphere with CO2, “Seeing is Believing.”

Carbon Dioxide Not Primary Cause of Global Warming.  Several of the videos from CO2Science.org show important points not often heard in the Mainstream Media. Here is a video which demolishes the idea that the present warmth is caused only by our addition of  CO2 to the atmosphere, “Carbon Dioxide and Atmospheric Warmth.”

Carbon Dioxide Is Good and Necessary to Life.  This video,  “CO2, The Breath of Life” is a stunning demonstration that CO2 is NOT a pollutant; it is the substance which allows animals and humans to survive and thrive.

Great Global Warming Swindle.  British producer Martin Durkin has provided us a wonderful documentary,  “The Great Global Warming Swindle,”  a feature-length documentary which provides a great and authoritative expose’ of this manufactured crisis.  It is an hour and 13 minutes long and worth every minute!

[Concerning the GGWS video above, when I first started studying recent climate developments, the faces in this video were strangers to me. Since then, I have met many of them and know several on a first-name basis: Willie Soon, Paul Driessen, Roy Spencer, and Fred Singer.]

Really Bad Climate Predictions.  Tony Heller speaks about the topic “Can We Trust Climate Scientists” in this 5-minute youtube video in which he torpedoes frequently made predictions about melting ice and the arctic becoming ice free.  Climate scientists and activists have been making such claims for a long time now and have always ended up with egg on their faces.

James Hansen’s Predictions.  In this video, Tony Heller speaks about the predictions James Hansen’s made during his presentation to congress in 1988.

Global Warming Scam Exposed.  In this May 2017 video, Dr. Patrick Moore, a past executive director of Green Peace,  talks about the global warming scam during this interview on Louder with Crowder.  He refers to the alarmists as the climate evidence deniers, and said that almost all of those climate scientists that proclaim that we are on the path to catastrophic warming owe their sustenance to public funding.  He says private funds would never pay for something so dubious.  Moore says that consensus is a political and social word that has no place in science.  He also says a 1 or 2 degree warming would be very beneficial to the planet.  A warmer world would be a wetter world where more places would be wetter and fewer dryer, and that would be very beneficial.  He talks about how Willie Soon was smeared by the New York Times, because he attributed global warming to the sun.

Climate Change Lies.  The top 10 climate change lies exposed by Rob Martin Jr. is an excellent six-minute video that clearly and succinctly destroys arguments that attempt to promote the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming hypothesis.

Australian Malcolm Roberts puts carbon dioxide and its purported effects on the climate into perspective with this short but effective video in which he illustrates the tiny amount of carbon dioxide added to the atmosphere through human activities.  He is campaigning against the Australian carbon tax on fossil fuels, which will be extremely expensive for the Australians yet accomplish nothing with respect to the climate.  He wants to “axe the tax!”
