— 09 May 2017

"The article contains little to no rational treatment of observational data, but relies on heavily biased secondhand interpretation... Even the title is based on a lie. There is no..

Analysis of “Scientists: Here’s What Really Causes Climate Change (And It Has Nothing To Do With Human Beings)”

in The Daily Wire, by James Barrett

— 28 Feb 2017

"The article misuses a Nature article on a geological process 90 millions years ago to argue the warming of the past century is not anthropogenic. It seems the reasoning is ideolog..

Analysis of “Earth heading for ‘mini ice age’ within 15 years”

in The Telegraph, by Dan Hyde

— 30 Jul 2015

"The whole argument in the article rests on the incorrect myth that the Maunder minimum caused a "mini ice age" and uses that name to draw specious implications and conclusions.


No evidence for a significant influence of volcanoes or solar variability on recent climate change contrary to Judith Curry’s claims in PragerU video

Climate scientists disagree about how much warming is associated with our emissions and whether this warming is larger than natural climate variability from the sun and volcanic eruptions

A lull in solar activity would have little effect on global temperatures; claims of “global cooling” are not based on science

Forward projections of solar cyclicity imply the next few decades may be marked by global cooling rather than warming, despite continuing CO2 emissions.
