An analysis of the 17 April 2018 NMSU Climate “Education” presentation by Dr David Dubois

Robert W. Endlich

… a patchwork of stories where propaganda and misinformation are presented as fact.

IS EMOTION THE BASIS OF EDUCATION?

For the lead presentation of a series which was purported to bring “Climate Education” to interested members of the Las Cruces, NM and New Mexico State University communities, Dave DuBois starts off with an emotional appeal to the audience, not a fact-based introduction. The link to his presentation is at https://sustainability.nmsu.edu/nmsuccess/ scroll to the bottom.

His subsequent sequence is filled with a patchwork of stories where propaganda and misinformation are presented as fact. Sometimes Dr. DuBois mentions tools of the trade in understanding climate history, including ice core proxies, sedimentation records, and natural climate cycles, including El Nino-Southern Oscillation and the Pacific Continue reading “An analysis of the 17 April 2018 NMSU Climate “Education” presentation by Dr David Dubois”

Wind turbines generate mountains of waste

Blade waste, other factors prove wind is no more green than solar

Duggan Flanakin

Environmentalists and wind energy opportunists (entrepreneurs who take advantage of overly generous tax credits and multiple other subsidies) want

you to believe wind energy is as pure “green” as newly driven snow is white, Eand as cheap as Taco Bell.

They never tell you about the costs – or the environmental destruction – that they have hidden from you for decades.  But neither do most governments, news media or social media.

Ars Technica science editor John Timmer says wind hardware prices are dropping, even as new turbine designs are increasing the typical power generated by each turbine. Timmer did admit that “wind is even cheaper at Continue reading “Wind turbines generate mountains of waste”

Media hypes new 130°F Death Valley Temperature – but it’s still short of the 134°F all-time record

Anthony Watts

On Sunday, August 16th the National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nevada sent out a Tweet highlighting a new maximum daily temperature of 130°F in Death Valley:

Predictably, the media jumped on this number with the Los Angeles Times saying “…possibly the highest mercury reading on Earth since 1913“. Even the Continue reading “Media hypes new 130°F Death Valley Temperature – but it’s still short of the 134°F all-time record”

On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

by Michael Shellenberger

[This article was originally published on June 29, 2020 by EnvironmentalProgress.org.  We are reproducing it here under the fair use doctrine.  It is a refreshingly honest presentation by Michael Shellenberger, an environmentalist who once accepted and actively promoted the idea that catastrophic anthropogenic global warming was occurring.  After  critically examining the AGW hypothesis, he has concluded that it is not supported by the facts, and consequently is apologizing for having participated in this misinformation campaign.  Ed.]

The Author in Maranhao, Brazil, 1995

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate Continue reading “On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare”

I’m a ‘scientist’ — a label that has lost its luster

By Art Robinson, Ph.D.

Art Robinson, Ph.D., calls out those using the “scientist” descriptor to spread fear among us

“Let’s Send a Scientist to the Oregon Senate” headlines a flier for my State Senate campaign. We are considering dropping “Scientist.”

Scientists enjoy learning new facts about the physical world. They have been respected largely because some of their discoveries have led to Continue reading “I’m a ‘scientist’ — a label that has lost its luster”
