Dr. Tim Ball: Can Canada Continue to Exist: The Geopolitical Challenges?

There are always forces operating on anything that exists. You can divide these into two categories, centrifugal forces that cause it to disintegrate, and centripetal forces that hold it together. Ideally, those forces are...

Dr. Tim Ball: CLEXIT: Canada Must Get Out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

I am proud to be the Canadian representative for the climate exit (CLEXIT) movement. Canada has more culpability than any other nation in creating and perpetuating the deception. It is not hyperbole to say that Canada was central to creating and mobilizing the false claim of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). The idea that humans were […]

Dr. Tim Ball: Seth Borenstein: A Propagandist Masquerading as a Journalist.

Borenstein has a journalism degree but claims to be a science reporter. He might have claim to the journalism label except that everything he writes is biased, misleading, distorted, and wrong because he only presents one side of each story. It is no surprise that he is exploiting the latest claims of the Intergovernmental Panel […]

For a brief period, the New York Times added a column to their best-seller book list. It identified the percentage of people who finished reading the book.

Dr. Tim Ball: Technocracy and The Geopolitical Overview to Help Understand Turkey’s Real Place in the World.

Geopolitics is a world little used today because it was created in Germany before WWI and guided the thinking and actions of the nation through WWII and the Third Reich. It was so unacceptable that when, in the 1970s, I wanted to teach a course with that name the university refused. They allowed me to […]

Dr. Tim Ball: Whatever Happened to Agenda 21 and Climate Change Policy?

It’s alive and well in your backyard. The entire policy of using anthropogenic global warming as a false front to implement global governance and impose how we will all live is working with remarkable success. The plan was set out by Maurice Strong as Agenda 21 in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. It is succeeding

Dr. Tim Ball: Sea Level Rise; A Major Non-Existent Threat Exploited by Alarmists and Politicians.

I know there are many articles on this website about sea level, none better than the recent one by David Middleton that speaks about “More nonsense about sea level rise.” I thought his article would make the continuance of this article unnecessary. It doesn’t because it is written for the WUWT readers. Unfortunately, too many

Dr. Tim Ball: American Exceptionalism in Context and Under Siege; An outsiders View.

Some say the internet is the cause of a dramatic increase in conspiracy theories. What is actually happening is that for the first time in history everybody has access to an amount of information unavailable even for many governments in the past. They find out how much they were deceived, and they are sounding off.

Dr. Tim Ball: No Scientific Basis for Canadian Carbon (CO2) Tax plan

We are in a new era of professional politicians. Not professional in their ability to do the job, but in their ability to perpetuate themselves. Proof of this statement is that Donald Trump was elected because he said from the start he was not a politician. He succeeds because the professional politicians supported by their

Dr. Tim Ball: Attacks on Scott Pruitt are Sure Sign He Is Over the Target

Military pilots know that if the flak is heavy, it is a sure sign you are over the target. It didn’t take long after Scott Pruitt took over at EPA for the deep state bureaucrats within the department to begin leaking what they claimed were personal abuses of money, rules, and regulations. Naturally, it raised

Dr. Tim Ball: The Science and Climate Ignorance of Society Needs Correcting, But How? Some Thoughts

Science historians say the Scientific Revolution began with Copernicus when he proposed the heliocentric system that the Earth orbits the Sun. I used to think it was not worth discussing because one in four Americans and one in three Russians think the opposite, namely the Ptolemaic view that it is an earth-centered, geocentric system. You

Dr. Tim Ball: The Biggest Deception in the Human Caused Global Warming Deception

It is likely that every year annual variance in the amount of water vapour in the atmosphere exceeds the warming effects of human CO2. I can’t prove it, but nobody can disprove it with any reasonable measure of evidence because there is insufficient data or understanding of natural processes. However, it is likely true, and

Dr. Tim Ball: Eco-Imperialism in North America and the World.

A few years ago, I was invited to appear before Congress on the global warming issue. It was at the height of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hysteria and the political games were hitting their stride. While in Washington, I was invited to make a couple of presentations, one at the famous off campus restaurant,

Dr. Tim Ball: Using One Social Problem to Resolve Another.

There are two great moral and ethical issues confronting and dividing Americans, abortion and migration. Life, in its normally perverse way, offers a solution for both with a common theme, that is overlooked or ignored because people have such strong and often emotional opinions about each. It is unlikely they would entertain one being a

Dr. Tim Ball: First Climate Lawsuit Judgment

I am extremely grateful for the judgment of a complete dismissal in the lawsuit brought against me by Andrew Weaver. It is a victory for free speech and a blow against the use of the law to silence people. As with all events, there is so much more that rarely receives attention yet is essential

Dr. Tim Ball: Trump’s Election Marks the Final Phase of the American Revolution

My prime area of research was climatology, particularly how climate changes over time and the impact of those changes on human history and the human condition.

Dr. Tim Ball: Crime Without Punishment is not Crime.

Chinese philosophy describes the yin and yang as apparently opposing forces that are just as likely to be complementary. It applies to the claim that if you have God you must have a devil. Dostoevsky underscores the idea in his book “Crime and Punishment.” Crime without punishment effectively means there is no crime. Of course,

Dr. Tim Ball: Climate Science and Climatology; Specialization and Generalization; Forest and Trees.

Many jumped to the defense of Dr. John Bates, the former NOAA employee who waited until he retired to disclose malfeasance in the science and management at that agency. Bates claimed he told his bosses about the problem but said they effectively ignored him. The problem is everything was already in the public record. I
