Nic Lewis and Judith Curry Give Certainty

Posted on September 24, 2014

So much of the IPCC argument is based on uncertainty.   Nic Lewis has been working rather tirelessly on improving climate science’s understanding of the observation based magnitude of warming from CO2.  This time he teamed up with Judith Curry and published a new paper establishing a far tighter uncertainty range for climate sensitivity to CO2 […]

Judith Curry on CO2

Posted on December 11, 2010

Judith has yet another nice post on CO2 sensitivity.  Her blog has quickly gained celebrity status although I’ve heard complaint that too may ‘skeptics’ are visiting. I’m not sure why a questioner is a bad thing. My guess is that several here could add to the conversation.  It will be interesting to see how this […]

Judith Curry’s New Blog

Posted on September 10, 2010

It looks like Dr. Judith Curry has decided to start down the road of climate blogging.  This should be an interesting experience and I’m glad that someone else in climate science is willing to address concerns of the public in  a direct fashion. Check it out and welcome Dr. Curry to the crowd.

The IPCC May Have Outlived its Usefulness – An Interview with Judith Curry “The IPCC might have outlived its usefulness. Let’s see what the next assessment report comes up with. But we are getting diminishing returns from […]

Fox article on RICO

Posted on September 29, 2015

Fox news has a good opinion piece by Judith Curry on the recent call by 20 fake scientists for criminalization of activities by people and organizations who can still objectively read a graph which shows climate models are complete failures. See article here. Two of many graphs of climate model failures are below: Advocates like […]

Trenberth – (edited) Skeptics need to shut up or be shot.

Posted on September 19, 2015

Judith Curry called attention to a fairly important event in climate science.  A number of scientists are calling for the government to prosecute criminally, corporations and individuals who will not agree with the extrapolated gloom and doom conclusions by fake scientists who base their opinions on failed climate models.   These fake government funded scientists have […]

Pat Michaels Powerful Testimony

Posted on July 23, 2015

Pat Michaels testimony at the Committe of Natural Resources was fantastic.  Very short but he really nailed it.  He mentions Nic Lewis who was a coauthor of our Antarctic rebuttal paper to Steig a few years ago.  Nic has been doing some of the best work on climate sensitivity for several years now.   He and […]

A Different Opinion

Posted on July 22, 2015

What if global warming were reversed and the release of CO2 caused cooling.   Would that be better or worse than today?   Would we be happier as biological entities in a cooling world or would food have a harder time growing?  Would more snow, and more glaciers help the biosphere of planet Earth be stronger?  Would […]

Paul Matthews — A Journal Publication on the Air Vent Reader Background Thread

Posted on February 11, 2015

How can you start an anonymous blog, writing on a topic of science, with near zero advertising and expect to have any readers.   Seriously, the first article I wrote here had like 9 views in 24 hours!  The unlikely visitors were probably looking for furnace vents or something. It hardly justified the time put into […]

Grumpy Blogger

Posted on January 3, 2012

It is hard to have any emotion about climate these days. It is like I’ve reached the end of the road and can see over the edge of the cliff. All is in view as far as you can see. They call it green but after Climategate 2.0, all I see is brown. Pound on […]

The Message

Posted on December 10, 2011

The Air Vent hasn’t been as much fun lately. Sure there have been leaks but there has been little discussion of interest outside of the insane climategate garbage. Who wants to listen to a bunch of leftists complain in their emails about governments not repressing industry enough anyway? There is plenty of interesting stuff in […]
