Watts Up With That?

What is the origin of the false belief – constantly repeated by President Obama, the media and others – that almost all scientists agree about global warming?

Claims continue to be made that “97% of scientists agree that climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” That’s what Secretary of State John Kerry told graduating Boston College students. It’s what President Obama said in his State of the Union address and a recent tweet.

Has David Attenborough Become A Propaganda Mouthpiece Promoting Climate Fear?

Watts Up With That?

atmos_bullhornGuest essay by Jim Steele, Director emeritus Sierra Nevada Field Campus, San Francisco State University.

David Attenborough was my favorite wildlife cinematographer and each year I fed my students numerous clips to make biology and ecology come alive. Researching the plight of the polar bears, I began to worry that “my hero” had decided to use his spectacular wildlife videos to promote catastrophic climate change.

Success! We Are Now In Command of the ISEE-3 Spacecraft

Thanks to the many WUWT readers that contributed to make this a success! These guys didn’t disappoint. They pulled it off against the odds. Congratulations to them. There’s a great backstory coming related to the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” that I’ll share as soon as I get clearance. – Anthony

The ISEE-3 Reboot Project is pleased to announce that our team has established two-way communication with the ISEE-3 spacecraft and has begun commanding it to perform specific functions. Over the coming days and weeks our team will make an assessment of the spacecraft’s overall health and refine the techniques required to fire its engines and bring it back to an orbit near Earth.

… THE PRINCE’S TRUST-ABUSE …

The Future Monarch, Prince Charles, has used his unelected royal status as a political communication platform…

… from which NOT to EDUCATE — but from which to HIDE, TWIST and MISLEAD.

America’s recent 3 month Arctic winter, following four cold Euro winters, heralds a sun-driven cooling — as irrelevant CO2 continues its meaningless rise to 0.04%.
