A complete explanation of the ice-age cycle.

This article is one of a number I’ve been doing developing my ideas on the Ice-age cycle. I will try to summarise the key ideas and explain how they fit. However, with such a complex subject and so many new ideas I cannot cover everything. Instead I will focus on the key ideas and ask […]

How "killer" rabbits on grass annihilated the dinosaurs

According to the textbooks, the Dinosaurs were killed off by climate change caused by a large meteor that crashed into the gulf of Mexico. Whilst simple and apparently obvious – it fails in several respects: dinosaurs were already dying out before the meteor and some continued after the meteor and therefore if the meteor were […]

A suggested new start for climate and academia in general

After a twitter exchange with Lonny Eachus, in which I made some suggestions, I am writing them up in more detail. Feel free to add comments. (Academic free) Institutes for monitoring climate The single biggest issue we face on climate is that almost none of the data can be relied on for two reasons: Those […]

The theory of non-causality

In logic, there is a requirement the world is structured such that A->B which can be read “if A then B”, but is often assumed to mean: “A causes B”. As a physicist, I was indeed taught that the whole world could be dissected into smaller and smaller constituent parts and that these could all […]

We live in luxury that even kings a few centuries ago could only dream of.

As a result of the industrial revolution – to which I’m proud to say a lot of Scots contributed. The world is now living in luxury, we are healthier, better educated and safer than at any time in history. Our rivers and clean, the clean air acts have cleaned up the air. You only have […]

Proof: recent temperature trends are not abnormal

It has frequently been stated that 2oth century warming was “unprecedented” or “cannot be explained”. This article sets out to test this assertion on CET the longest available temperature series. I find the CET data rejects the hypothesis of ‘climate change’ (>58%) & current ‘global warming’ (>72%) and that overall global temperature has not changed […]

Predictors of climate alarmism and scepticism

A year ago when the results of the survey were coming in, I started preparing to write a paper by doing a literature search to see what comparable research had been done. It was not a pleasant experience. The academic literature on sceptics (almost none of alarmists) was some of the most hate filled, dishonest […]

The Caterpillar theory of tectonic plate movement – it's just simple physics.

There can be few new ideas which are so simple and so fixed in basic science: When solids heat up they expand and push out in all directions That material occupies more space in all directions. So it expands upwards but also outwards. That expanding material must go somewhere. So When you have a large […]
