Meteorologist Launches Website to Counter Media’s Global Warming Hysteria

Meteorologist Launches Website to Counter Media’s Global Warming Hysteria Posted by Noel Sheppard on February 24, 2007 - 16:06.

A Trenton, New Jersey, meteorologist has just launched a new website to counter the constant stream of disinformation about anthropogenic global warming coming from a hysterical media.

As reported by ClimatePolice.com (emphasis mine throughout):

Joseph Conklin, a meteorologist with expertise in the analysis of surface weather observations, has launched a website to help promote alternative scientific views on climate change. He believes these views have been overshadowed and even wrongly criticized by sensationalist news stories.

The press release continued:

"The goal of the website is to show the public that other research on climate change exists and the debate is not over. In science, alternate views should always be welcomed, not silenced," Conklin states.

Furthermore, Conklin insists on keeping information at his website non-partisan:

While research on either side of the climate change debate can be submitted to the website, only those not linked to any political group will be accepted.

"Scientific research should be apolitical. Extremist groups have promoted global warming as their primary political issue. I want this website to help correct that."

How refreshing. For those interested, here are Conklin’s credentials:

Mr. Conklin has over 14 years experience collecting and analyzing surface weather observations. He has additional experience in radar/lightning analysis, wind shear detection, and software development. Mr. Conklin holds a meteorology degree from Rutgers University and an interdisciplinary degree from Monmouth University where his master's thesis involved climate studies with lightning and severe storms. He also operates NiceWeather.com, a website specializing in monthly weather forecasts.

We certainly wish Mr. Conklin and his team great success with their new endeavor, and look forward to their contributions concerning this crucial issue.

I'm sure the World Court in the Hague will issue an arrest warrant for Mr. Conklin soon. The two major sins are global warming denial and criticizing Islam.

Or include the following link which cntains as its cover text:

Other Voices

"The United States is very close to adopting an international agreement that would ration the use of energy and of technologies that depend upon coal, oil, and natural gas and some other organic compounds.

This treaty is, in our opinion, based upon flawed ideas. Research data on climate change do not show that human use of hydrocarbons is harmful. To the contrary, there is good evidence that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is environmentally helpful.

The proposed agreement would have very negative effects upon the technology of nations throughout the world, especially those that are currently attempting to lift from poverty and provide opportunities to the over 4 billion people in technologically underdeveloped countries.

It is especially important for America to hear from its citizens who have the training necessary to evaluate the relevant data and offer sound advice.

Here are a few "inconvenient" sources he could add to his web page archives:

The Antarctic Ozone Hole Demystified
Fred Singer's Letter to Editor, Chicago Tribune (in response to editorial)

I agree with the title of your editorial ("The sky is not falling," Oct 12, 2002) but wish to correct some of the scientific information:

"The Antarctic Ozone Hole (AOH) was never "theorized" but discovered in 1985 and explained only much later. Its causes are still not completely understood.

According to the official UN report of 2002, stratospheric chlorine is still rising. No matter: The size of the AOH has been controlled by changing weather patterns rather than by chlorine levels.

In spite of theoretical predictions, there has been no direct observational evidence for a steady increase of ultraviolet radiation at the Earth's surface. Therefore all imagined impacts cited in the editorial -- skin cancers, cataracts, etc. -- are based on speculation.

The economic impact on GDP of phasing out CFCs ("freons") has indeed been minor. But that's not true for fossil fuels, and it is quite misleading to use such an analogy. (The impact has been great for those motorists forced to replace their car air-conditioning system because of a small leak. I should know; it cost me nearly $1000.)

"By 1987, when the Montreal Protocol (to phase out CFCs) was concluded, the published data showed no increase in stratospheric chlorine, an ozone-destroying chemical, and therefore no evidence for a human influence. In fact, the chief US negotiator Richard Benedick bragged that he was able to pull off the Montreal Accord without any backing from science. I quote from his book Ozone Diplomacy: "Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of the treaty was............[that it] rested on scientific theories rather than on firm data."

~ S. Fred Singer. Professor emeritus of Environmental Sciences, University of Virginia, and scientific adviser to the Heartland Institute, Chicago. http://www.sepp.org/Archive/NewSEPP/AOH-Chi_Trib.htm


Ozone Diplomacy: New Directions in Safeguarding the Planet,
by Richard Elliot Benedick http://www.amazon.com/Ozone-Diplomacy-Directions-Safeguarding-Enlarged/dp/0674650034

Stripping away the sheen, April 4, 2000
Reviewer: A reader

This book is one of a handful that have appeared in the years since the Montreal Protocol that have addressed the motivations behind those that acted to bring the protocol into being. It questions the simple thesis that it was simply an attempt to introduce environmental protection for one of the Earths damaged resources, suggesting instead that the primary motivation was more economically defined. the primary actors each had something to be gained in seeing a ban on CFC's in favour of their (generally more expensive) alternative. In this regard it presents a mass of evidence that might come as a surprise to those who believed that the treaty was a hopeful first step towards international agreements to benefit the Earth's environment, and it is a surprise that is unlikely to be a pleasant one. It does no-one any good to hide from the truth however, and the volume is thus a worthwhile read, as well as a useful pointer towards further reading around this area.

"Global Warming" is the biggest and, so far, most successful con of the new century! So many people have fallen for it because they "don't really understand science" and because they habitually put their trust in the public pronouncements of celebrities. Sad, but that is where we are.

I recall hearing Gorbachev say that when the Soviet Union fell the Commies moved to the enviromental movement. Reason enough not to trust those global warming nuts!

The ads are part of the Google ad program. We've removed them until we can find a resolution.
