S. Fred Singer, Ph.D. in physics, atmospheric and space physicist: Tribute by colleagues on his passing April 4, 2020. He founded the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP) and the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC). He served as professor of environmental sciences at the University of Virginia (1971–94).
John Eidson, writer, analyst for energy, climate change, government policies, retired electrical engineer, independent voter: The next time a drought visits California, and one will, you can bet the farm that the peddlers of climate doom at the LA Times won’t remind readers that the previous drought ended in a spectacular fashion that demonstrated the remarkable resilience of Mother Nature to withstand brutal conditions for 5 long years, and then stick it to the doomsayers by strutting her stuff with a wildflower super bloom for the ages. Bottom line: Mother Nature 1, Doomsayers 0. To the doomsayers, climate history is a most inconvenient truth, which is why they leave no stone unturned at trying to conceal it from voters.
Ross McKitrick, Department of Economics, University of Guelph, Canada: Historically there have been three broad ways of viewing the natural world. Primitive cultures viewed it as a personal entity with a mind of its own. Biblical cultures view it as the work of a Supreme creator. Modern secularists view it as a random, uncreated entity. Does Nature Have Intrinsic Value?

Sebastian Luening, paleogeologist, Hui Su, Jet Propulsion Lab, USA et al., Andrew Follet: Most global climate models are underestimating increased rainfall caused by global warming. NASA and four universities compared climate data from 1995 to 2005 to 23 climate model simulations for the same period. More than 70 percent of the climate models underestimated the amount of rain compared to the real world observations. “Precipitation is vital to life on Earth and regional precipitation changes accompanying anticipated global warming could exert profound impacts on ecosystems and human society,” reads the study’s abstract.
