Shub Niggurath: Polar bear attack paper invalidated by non-independent analysis

Stephen Lewandowsky has co-authored (yet another) paper attacking climate skeptics. His colleagues-in-arms this time are long-time climate consensusite Jeff Harvey , Bart Vergheggen, and a cohort of ecologists along with Michael Mann. First author Harvey is well-known to climate commenters as a rant-prone passionate bulldog for the climate cause. The main supposed finding of the

Shub Niggurath: Pielke Jr – Re-entry into the climate atmopshere

Pielke Jr is on a path of re-entry into the climate debate. His offering is a Powerpoint presentation of how ‘climate politics’ is ‘Manichean paranoia.’ Manichean paranoia, huh. What Pielke Jr means is the people involved are stupid yobos who don’t know how to fight. This is something he learned, while floating high above it

Shub Niggurath: Paris covfefe

He’s done it. Donald Trump has taken the United States out of the Paris agreement. Trump’s administration, perhaps predictably, employed the unfairness of Paris to pull out of the accord. But the question remains: is a fair Paris-like agreement possible? Or, even more fundamentally – should a Paris-like agreement be allowed at all? Under Paris, if

Shub Niggurath: Paris codpiece

Jim Stimson writes companies would like the US administration under Trump to support ‘the accord as a codpiece, to be worn for public-relations purposes.’ Public relations exercises usually cover for some unpalatable facet or action. What exactly would the Paris agreement provide cover for? According to Stimson it would be for the US ’embrace of coal

Shub Niggurath: Lies about the pause

Scare Pollution is the story of Steve Milloy’s investigation of experiments the US Environmental Protection Agency conducted on human subjects with diesel exhaust. Milloy stumbled upon the EPA’s activities when it published a case report of a middle-aged woman who developed cardiac arrhythmias and needed to be taken to the hospital. It turned out she was one

Shub Niggurath: Trump Climate – Part Two

What is the greatest barrier for victory for reason in the climate debate? The answer is quite obvious but many refuse to state it plainly. Stop talking the claims of climate alarmists seriously. Stop pretending to take climate alarmists seriously. Climate alarmism is a barely-coherent tissue of half-baked concoctions that ‘make sense’ only if you are

Shub Niggurath: Letter to British PM from climate scientists authored by Bob Ward?

Climate scientists are fond of signing their name to activist letters. Usually, these letters end in some fiasco or the other. The latest, the Guardian has reported, is one written by ‘leading scientists’ to British PM Theresa May asking her to persuade Donald Trump away from climate skepticism. The letter  (alternate link: here) was ‘delivered to Downing

Shub Niggurath: What are the barriers to climate skepticism higher up?

Climate change is a typical example of a ‘captured moral domain’ model. What this means is politicians, leaders, CEOs, basically anyone with a real job, would be afraid to voice their frank opinion on the matter. If you are skeptical you are likely to stick out like a sore thumb, even if others have the

Shub Niggurath: The climate cat-and-mouse game and Trump

Climate diplomacy is just war by other means. In fact, climate as diplomacy took birth for this purpose though the pretense at the surface is anything but. The initial momentum of the climate movement was Malthusian – directed at overconsumption of ‘resources’ and ‘overpopulation’ of the earth by the wrong types of human beings in

Shub Niggurath: Trump Climate

A climate skeptic in the White House? Yes, that’s what we have. While there are several ways in which the climate debate can move, as a skeptic, observer, and occasional participant, I wanted to outline some key points. Representation Who does the climate issue belong to? Here is one of the darkest, damnedest of secrets
