Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Connecticut: For the last half-million years, there have been 100,000-year glacial periods interrupted by brief (10,000-15,000-year) interglacial such as the one we’re in now. In all cases, the temperature changes have preceded CO2 changes, and CO2 has never been able to ward off descent into glacial cycles.
Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Professor of Physics, author of The Energy Advocate and Judith Curry, Climatologist and former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology: This article is about two things: a) delusional claims by some scientists and b) the unfortunate retirement of Climatologist, Judith Curry, Lukewarmist, from Georgia Tech University.
Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Professor of Physics: Nobody at COP-22 was discussing atmospheric energy transport, gave talks about computer modeling, talked about measurements, talked about instrumentation, nor talked about atmospheric dynamics. Make no mistake about it: COP-22 was about money and (political) power. The same thing has happened 21 times before. Neither China, the United States, nor any other nation can get enough energy from sunbeams, breezes, and chicken manure, the energy sources favored by the delegates to any of the COP gatherings.
Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Professor of Physics: The solar industry employs 210,000 people, while there are only 190,000 employed in coal mines. Considering the tiny amount of solar electricity produced, the solar industry employs about 70 times as many people for the same amount of electricity. The coal industry is developing plans to compete with that kind of job creation. They will get rid of all that heavy machinery and hire millions of miners to use picks and shovels."Greenpeace and others protesting CO2 and global warming, based on a mere BELIEF, like any other religion, is as laughable (if it weren't for their willful and unlawful disruption of honest TAX-PAYING citizens' lives) as demanding the government 'do something' about the length of daylight, or the force of gravity, or the composition of Jupiter.
