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. Two factors were central to these studies and effectively define human history. The first is water, a fact emphasized by a study done to mark the end of the

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

Dr. Tim Ball: Salvaging the Unsalvageable: HFCs and the UN Climate Change Fiasco

“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive!” Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) Support for the global warming/climate change agenda is becoming increasingly desperate, hysterical, and illogical. The causes are many, but chief among them are a plethora of contradictory evidence and growing public skepticism or at least disinterest. There are

Dr. Tim Ball: Climate and Popular Revolution

My major research interest in climatology is historical climate, but particularly the impact of climate and climate change on human history and the human condition. Climatology was always part of geography because it studies the climate of a region and the change over time. This was subsumed by the growth of climate science in which

Dr. Tim Ball: Compulsory Courses for Any Curriculum; The Science Dilemma

Science is pervasive directly and indirectly in every phase of modern life. While the majority are not directly involved in science, they need to understand science and how it works. It is increasingly the underlying control of social, political, and economic decisions made by them or for them. They need to understand how it works,

Dr. Tim Ball: Cherry Picking in Climate Studies

A revealing comment about the corruption of climate science occurred before a Joint Congressional Inquiry. They were seeking to determine the claims by Canadians Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick about the scientific inaccuracy of Michael Mann’s ‘hockey stick.’ The graph (Figure 1) appeared in the 2001 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report and became
