@No Tricks Zone: Harvard Physi­cist: “Climate Science In Serious Trouble”­…”Really Dirty People Doing Bad Stuff”

In a presen­tation (see below) Harvard astroph­ysicist Willie Soon came out blasting with both barrels at the corru­ption in climate science. He started by saying that any respec­table scientist would say that the American National Academy of Science (NAS) is “100 percent corrupt” and the climate scien­tists who put up the content at the NAS  are”r­eally danger­ous”,

@Watts Up With That?: Oceanic Downwe­lling and our Low Surface Temper­atures

Guest Post by Wim Röst Introd­uction The creation of ‘Hot Worlds’ and ‘Glacial Worlds’ during past geolo­gical periods was only made possible by warm and cold deep oceans, respect­ively, that were created by specific configu­rations of conti­nents and oceans. Without warm deep oceans, no warm global climate state is possible. Without cold deep oceans, no…

It’s not the only place in the region to suffer but as The Local says ‘Staufen has really become a byword for failed geoth­ermal drill­ing.’ A German town’s decision to invest in geoth­ermal energy backfired badly after underg­round drilling went wrong and hundred of buildings began to fall apart.

We have a bathroom basin and count­ertop of moulded thick black glass. For about five years it was happy, then late one night this week, for no reason, it shattered — the sink fractured into 100 pieces and fell into the towels below.…
