A big "thank you" to Mike Smith for his rebuttal to an op-ed printed in today's Wichita Eagle.
As the following two charts show, the models that are in common use by climate scientists have predicted rising temperatures, but actual observations of temperatures have not conformed to predictions. Temperatures have been level in recent years.
Responses to a news story on recycling indicate that the issue is driven more by emotion and misinformation than reason.
The maker of FrackNation writes "Our mistake was to believe the Tribeca Film Festival’s claims to want diversity of opinion and people who are passionate about film."
A new feature film by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney will present the truth about hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking.
Occupy Koch Town protesters show no concern for facts or reason in their politically-motivated attack on Koch Industries, capitalism, and human progress.
Filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer produced the 2009 film "Not Evil Just Wrong" that uncovered the myths and misinformation spread by radical environmental extremists. Now the two have looked at fracking and hope to produce a documentary film on this topic.
Every citizen on the planet bears a responsibility toward stewardship of the environment. In the United States we have been blessed by much improved air and water quality over many decades of dedicated effort. There are, however, practical limits as to how far to push the envelope of "clean."

Last year's disclosure of email correspondence between climate scientists was a wake-up call to the world. The emails showed leading climate scientists exhibiting "professional misconduct, data manipulation and jiggering of both the scientific literature and climatic data."
This Friday (June 11) the Wichita Pachyderm Club features Michael R. Smith, C.C.M. of WeatherData Services, Inc. as its guest presenter. Smith's topic will be "An Atmospheric Scientist Looks at Global Warming."
Climate change -- its reality (or not) and man's response to it -- is an important topic and deserves serious discussion. The actions of one of the most prominent and vocal groups promoting a radical global warming agenda, however, aren't fostering greater understanding of the issue, much less an informed debate.
Last week's report on Koch Industries by Greenpeace has sparked a bit of critical discussion beyond the usual news coverage.
This week's release of a report by the extremist environmental group Greenpeace on Wichita-based Koch Industries contains claims that exaggerate the nature of the information contained in the report. These over-hyped "findings" are used to advance Greenpeace's global warming alarmist agenda, but should give us cause to examine Greenpeace and its agenda.
Wichita's Koch Industries has come under attack from an environmental extremist organization for its support of open debate and dialog about the science of climate change.
