Slowly expanding, let me know if I miss anything big.
Balling Central: Homepage of noted climate
scientist, and greenhouse skeptic Professor Robert Balling Jr. Dozens
of links including to most of his papers.
Bizarre Science by Dr Aaron Oakley and Louis Hissink is an
informative, entertaining and very readable weblog site detailing case
after case where sound scientific principles take a back seat.
Paal Brekkes solar site, interesting info on sun's impact on
Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change.
Challenging reviews and articles. Very good "Subject Index"
page where material on a wide range of climate topics can be located.
Cockburn Association of Pragmatists.(CAPS)
Details how issues surrounding air quality in Kwinana, the Perth
W.A. main industrial district, generate media reports from the far
side. Read how the local "EPA" looks to be helping Green groups
promulgate their inventive complaints time after time, via a pliant or
lazy media. No, CAPS is not inventing this stuff.
If you are interested in the greenhouse debate you can not miss John
Daly's comprehensive website Waiting
Bigger than Ben Hur and more useful.
New site in 2002 by Hans Erren of The Netherlands
who has analysed UHI's in the historically significant De Bilt and
Uccle data and shown relationship to population. Also shows how
De Bilt has been composited. We look forward to more revelations about
European UHI's. Also much thoughtful analysis of carbon dioxide
and climate history.
Goddard Institute for Space Studies, (GISS) Dr
Jim Hansen's magnificent web creation where you clik on a global map
and can see a graph of the temperature record of your chosen
station, can also choose the dataset and can even download the table of
Greening Earth Society. Site packed with topical
articles re greenhouse, global warming issues. Look for John Daly's
paper on tide gauges, sea levels, IPCC version of science etc.
Dr. Douglas Hoyt thoughtfully discusses many aspects of the
various global temperature datasets, take a coffee into this one.
A link for IPCC output where you should find the Summary for
Steve Milloy's huge site debunks all manner of
Green and Govt. myths and lies.
Site by Peter Krahmer, said to be the German John Daly. What
more can I say.
The Lavoisier Group., New Australian greenhouse sceptics
group. Look in "papers" for pdf file with interesting exchange of
letters with Dr Pearman, head of CSIRO Div of Atmospheric
Research. CSIRO is the Oz version of NOAA. New paper by Bob
Foster, download in pdf.
This NASA site, "Contrary Thermometers" discusses the
difference between lower troposphere and surface temperatures.
New in July. signs that the NASA Goliath might yet figure out the
connection between, urban temperature records, the Urban Heat
Island effect (UHI) and "Global Warming". Great potential
but their first effort on 21, July needs editing. P.S. 28,
July. Yep, the editor has been at work.
NASA 2000 "Culprits of Climate Change"
Explains Dr. Jim Hansen's new position.
NASA Top Stories, selections from NASA research, good
archive, some surprises here
NASA telling us about the urban heat island,
wonderful pictures of infra-red inages from satellites. Clik on Air
Quality for very good vertical section of ozone content across the
Knoxville UHI in USA. Like a flower the UHI / pollution plume rises a
couple of thousand metres.
Another branch of the far flung NASA Empire, this time
with convenient site where you see an image map in red and blue of
global temperature anomalies from 1979, collected by satellite, you can
choose various layers of the atmosphere and by clicking on the map or
making a rectangle with your mouse, can see a graph for that area.
NATIONAL TIDAL FACILITY AUSTRALIA at The Flinders University of South Australia for Australian and pacific sea level history data. They say Australian sea level is rising at a miserly 0.3 mm pa. http://www.ntf.flinders.edu.au/
Numberwatch by John Brignell, highlights misleading use of
statistics and general media ignorance where politicians, science,
numbers & stats are concerned. Witty and rapier sharp.
Gary D. Sharp, Center for Climate/Ocean Resources Study.
Lots of provocative ideas and data, long term climate change, ice ages,
solar & orbital influences. Examples of how we often do not
understand mans place in the environment.
The Scientific Alliance, another web site putting balancing views on science and environment issues, solid and very British. http://www.scientific-alliance.com
SEPP: Dr Fred Singer's Science and Environment Policy Project,
publishes The Week That Was (TWTW), critiques a range of
environment science issues each week, pricks many balloons, not to be
Tech Central Station - where free markets meet technology, a huge resource of articles on science and environment http://www.techcentralstation.com/
Viewpoint Paper on Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
"Does CO2 really drive global warming? by Robert Essenhigh. Chemical Innovation 2001, 31 (5), 44-46. Copyright (c) 2001 American Chemical Society. This article expresses the views of the author and not necessarily those of Chemical Innovation magazine or the American Chemical Society."
INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution,
whose President is Professor Nils-Axel Mörner of Sweden. Under the
title "Research Topics 5: The expected sea level changes in the next
century", the Commission says:
This is a topic of much controversy. … As it is now, the scenarios are primarily presented by people with little or no specialization in sea level research. This is especially true for the IPCC project where "sea level changes" are treated in ways far away from proper observational records.
Sounds like the IPCC I know.
World Climate Report: Professor Pat Michaels and colleagues
exposing inadequate climate science and all sorts of new material.
