  1. Once you have digested all this information you can look up Tony Heller on Youtube for his past video. He is no longer there but on other platform. He is really good at showing the stats on the temperature changes. The warmest year in the US was in 1936. For people who live in the cities and who do not have a garden they can be told anything about the weather and believe it. They are totally disconnected from nature and if you keep telling them it is warmer they will believe you. They have no idea. Whereas farmers and those who have garden can tell you years when the last frost of the years was June 6 and that they lost half of their tomatoes that year, or that their first frost was September 7 and that they lost their tomatoes. We had a very cold spring this year in the South Okanagan valley this year, it did not get warm till July. Then we had a really long beautiful September and October. I still had tomatoes on the wine last week. First killer frost this week end. Last winter was extremely cold, -30. First time I see it this cold in 50 years. So there you are. Nature balance itself somehow if you leave it alone. This summer we had so many chemtrail…I think they spray at 4 am. AT 8 in the morning you could see 6 or 8 trail. I live in a rural area and there not many plane going to the nearest airport in Penticton. We know what time the planes are coming in from Vancouver, we know the flight that are going to MOntreal from Vancouver. They are on time every day….

    • You guys must be their favorites to get sprayed on such schedule. Here it’s not even nearly as frequent.

    • lots of spraying around southern France in “my area”.

    • OMG…! WOW…! I PERSONALLY HAVE OVER 200 pictures on the most severe chemtrails, right here in the upper peninsula of Michigan. That said id love to share my photos as they are extremely shocking, and you clearly see the chemicals falling from the clouds, it absolutely crazy, and the smell and taste some days is so HORRIBLE.

      All said I wont take to much space unless someone wants more of what im speaking. I leave anyone reading to BEWARE tomorrow 11/6 2022 which equals those numbers 666 this isnt a joke this is BAD NEWS please be ready for all HELL to start tomorrow, maybe nukes or other insane control ploys…, anyone reading mark my words …, my math says tomorrow we will see the real wicked move start. i could say much more especially on numbers and letters but who cares many says, well tomorrow people will see as its written quite clearly

      11/6 = 66 2022 = 6 altogether their favorite numbers…, ie Washington, stay safe people stay safe get out of cities specially if you live in D.C. or NEW YORK or other larger cities because its GOING to happen.

      Sincerely’N’TRUTHp: d&t

    • Chemtrails – Canada

      Canadians may want to research L3 Technologies or name variations such as L3Harris.
      Look for locations near small airports.
      Example: 10001 Jack Finney Blvd. Greenville TX 75402

      After all, FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests are not applicable to private businesses or contractors. Besides, a FOIA of that “classified” nature would be blacked out anyway.

      James Corbett has interviewed Peter A Kirby.
      Peter Kirby reinforced my direct experience when I was in the Greenville, TX area along with my suspicions. See his article:
      L3 Technologies and the Early New Manhattan Project Chemtrail Fleets
      [Bottom of a SUB-THREAD on chemtrail testing.]

    • Same here in Central, PA. We live near a lot of farm country, though the farms are going under really fast and being replaced with crummy strip malls and apartment buildings. Still, some farmers are trying to hang on. We started noticing an uptick in chem trails last spring and it still continues. By the time we leave for work at 8am the skies are covered in trails starting to plume out and cover the sky with a sickly haze. No rain all summer. Our garden suffered horribly, as did many farmers’ crops. The local orchard lost all their fruit this year due to the cold spring and late frost in May. We’re finally getting some rain, but it’s too little too late. Though we did get a good tomato yield and still had tomatoes on the vine in October.

      No one believes us when we point out the chem trails. They say the planes are from Ft. Indiantown Gap and they’re just doing formations. If only that were true!

      • I’m in Philadelphia, and I see it here as well. I don’t know if you’ve ever checked out, but Dane Wiggington pointed out that people think “conspiracy theory” when using a phrase like “chem trail.” Better to use the scientific name, as James did–stratospheric aerosol injection. Personally, I’ve had no luck whatsoever in that regard. The “normies” in my neck of the woods haven’t budged.

        On another note, one of the videos at Geoengineering watch has a clip of Lyndon Johnson discussing programs in this area and stating “who controls the weather controls the world.”

  2. I think the biggest problem is how scientifically ignorant people are, and yet they have college degrees and have been convinced that they can read up on a topic and in a week or so be an expert and have a valid opinion. (Think the supercilious Jeremy Hammond, for example.)

    I once had an exchange with a person like this who readily admitted that he knows nothing about science. When discussing the climate change hoax, I said that co2 is an odorless, colorless, trace gas and is essentially plant food, that without it, we wouldn’t be stimulated to breathe. His response? Where are my peer reviewed references for that?

    I was astounded.

    These are facts that any educated person should know, and can be found in high school text books, yet this guy wants peer reviewed research on it? I knew there was no point.

    Despite his confession of being a science ignoramus, he had an opinion. Man is blanketing the earth with a thick layer of carbon, don’t ya know. He made that up. I tried to find some reference for such a crazy statement on the interwebs, and came up short. This bozo who is an admitted ignoramus made this nonsense up, had sleepless nights because the earth is being destroyed, and he’s demanding peer reviewed articles from me. Something is very wrong with college educated people. (We found that out with the covidiots, too, who were mainly the most educated.)

    The following describes this guy and millions like him from supposed “good schools.” it’s from the intro to Jacques Ellul’s book, Propaganda.

    “[C]entral in Ellul’s thesis is that modern propaganda cannot work without “education;” he thus reverses the widespread notion that education is the best prophylactic against propaganda. On the contrary, he says, education, or what usually goes by that word in the modern world, is the absolute prerequisite for propaganda. In fact, education is largely identical with what Ellul calls “pre-propaganda”–the conditioning of minds with vast amounts of incoherent information already dispensed for ulterior purposes and posing as “facts” and as “education.” Ellul follows through by designating intellectuals as virtually the most vulnerable of all to modern propaganda, for three reasons: 1. they absorb the largest amount of secondhand, unverifiable information; 2. they feel a compelling need to have an opinion on every important question of our time, and thus easily succumb to opinions offered to them by propaganda on all indigestible pieces of information; 3. they consider themselves capable of “judging for themselves.” They literally need propaganda.

    “In fact the need for propaganda on the part of the “propagandee” is one of the most powerful elements of Ellul’s thesis. Cast out of the disintegrating mircorgroups of the past such as family, church or village, the individual is plunged into mass society and thrown back upon his own inadequate resources, his isolation, his loneliness, his ineffectuality.

  3. Under what set of conditions will the “pandemic” be over? It’s incredible how this type of question will fly over people’s heads. Not even antigravitic vehicles can do flyovers at that angle.

    • “Under what set of conditions will the “pandemic” be over?”

      I think a lot about that too these days.

      Has the WHO come out and stated what it will take for them to declare it over?
      There are many countries around the world that are trying their best to have their cake and eat it too.

      Let’s look at Canada. Radio shows often talk now about ‘pre-pandemic’ this and that, as if we are now post-pandemic. Yet the Medical Officer of Health of my province came out a couple of months ago advising everyone to continue to wear masks, get jabbed, etc. etc.

      When I go out, around 25% of people are still wearing face masks!
      So these mask-wearers are perpetuating the fear factor for everyone.

      There are still departments that are working under emergency measure funding and protection. They would like the pandemic to continue indefinitely.

      The problem we have is that no top health authority told us what the exit strategy would be. Is it x-number of cases in a week/month? Is it x-number of deaths in a week/month?
      Or zero cases as in China?

      They have so much latitude with this. All I know is that we are still far from normal no matter how much people try to pretend.

      • One does not need to sell these type of scenarios to everyone, just to a significant portion of the population and they’ll make sure everyone lives through the nightmare.

        In this failed state I’ve seen only foreigners wearing masks since spring time and now that we are in the warm fall it does not look like they are ramping this up in the media. The gameplan is changing, but I don’t understand the angle. I was certain that media was taking a lead on all things covid with politicians following along, but now there is a certain pause at play. Maybe the very warm weather is causing delays in their plans.

        I do expect that all of this morphs into climate lockdowns and for that they will certainly need some “extreme” weather.

  4. A few random reflections before taking a spin in the Saturday morning hamsterwheel:

    “Weather is such a nebulous concept!” Sorta says it all! X-)

    Hockey-stick climate models as pcr tests = whatever you feed it, papaya juice or CO2 emissions levels, it comes up biosecurity disaster.

    Tree rings as the phrenology of climate science!!? Distance or density?? They’re barkin’ up the wrong tree??!

    How dare us! Like lemmings, Humanity is racing towards its collective extinction because we don’t follow Thunberg enlightening extreme weather prophecies!! But WAIT!! Do lemmings actually commit collective suicide??? To what extent are we trapped in a Disney movie called Saving the Planet?? Have we been subjected to climategate-style “snowflake cover-ups”? a colossal snow job? The Great White North of Man-made Global Warming!?

    And for anyone who wants to understand the true nature of the UN and their mandates should meet with little Stanley and Nelson Romulus and their mother Sonia. Oh! Sorry! no longer possible, they’re indisposed:

    “…On July 6, 2005 the residents of Cite Soleil were the objects of a full military assault by UN forces. It resulted in over 22,000 rounds being fired in a raid on the pro-Aristide slum ordered by Brazilian General Heleno Ribera. By the time the gun smoke cleared it revealed a nightmare of blood and screams as people bled to death in close-knit tin roof houses, small alleys and narrow roadways in Cite Soleil…

    The most terrifying images captured by Ristil on July 6, 2005 were those of a family killed in their home. The sole survivor, a tearful father, sits in a chair over the lifeless bodies of his wife and two infant sons lying on the floor. Fredi Romulus explains in detail how UN troops lobbed a red smoke grenade into his house and everyone panicked. He sobbed deeply as he expressed his grief over leaving the house first and turning to see UN soldiers fire into the doorway towards his wife and children. Sonia Romulus was holding her one year-old son Nelson when the UN bullet passed through his small body killing both of them instantly. A separate head shot killed four year-old Stanley Romulus, Nelson’s older brother…”

    That was before UN “peacekeepers” poisoned the water supply as reported on by PBS (first link that comes up):
    “…Haiti’s first major brush with cholera occurred more than a decade ago when U.N. peacekeepers introduced the bacteria into the country’s biggest river via sewage runoff at their base. Nearly 10,000 people died and thousands of others were sickened…”

    And speaking of exotic weapons, SAIs and HAARP: How is it that earthquakes cause “extreme damage” in Haiti but not so much on the other side of the island in the Dominican Republic??

    • And speaking of exotic weapons, SAIs and HAARP: How is it that earthquakes cause “extreme damage” in Haiti but not so much on the other side of the island in the Dominican Republic??

      Good question.
      I was actually in DR when the earthquake struck in 2010. Luckily, didn’t feel anything. 🙂

  5. Cool. Can you extract mp3 from Odyssey? Oh, I see it’s on Audbile…maybe I’ll just buy it there…

  6. James Corbett is such a shill. Greta Thunberg says Climate Catastrophe™ is a real and present threat to Humanity. I didn’t see James Corbett speak at Glastonbury. Game, set, match, Greta.


  7. two quick questions:
    1) Derrick says something like “we know that CO2 is bad”. But do we? Or is just CO2 the boogey man of climate “science”? Shouldn’t we rehabilitate it, as very essential part of life?
    2) Gregg Braden showed in “Missing links s01e01” (GaiaTV) that according to ice cores of Antarctica and Greenland CO2 rising actually follows the temperature rising, during the cooling, so the correlation might be all the way around. What do you think about it?
    And that’s how 2 became 4.
    Thanks for your work!

    • Yes. I had to stop watching at 8:32 minutes, when Derrick says “abviously people know that CO2 is supposedly bad thing” and write the comment. Of course you addressed most of it later.

  8. tomorrow is the DATE TO BE WATCHFUL FOR.

    11/6 = 66 AND 2022 = 6 TOGETHER =666

    You may shrug shoulders but tomorrow you wont. expect damage by nukes/dirty bo m b s ect…,

    also the spraying they do EVERY DAY here in Michigan, is being done for several applications.., surely to damage soil, spread chemicals to human lungs = suprise included like cracker jacks but this wont be a fun suprise…think agent orange 40+ yrs ago and what they can do now…, yes i watch to much good news, so my prayers are for our safety.., which includes anyone caring for our families and friends, tomorrow will effect many.

  11. Hey, James! Here’s a question I’d like your perspective on in a possible new “Questions for Corbett” segment some time in the future:

    Before the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband, CNN reported a heightened risk of “domestic terrorism” and growing threats to “democracy” coinciding with the upcoming midterm elections. We saw the FBI-driven plot to kidnap Gov Whitmer of Michigan for which those individuals were convicted; and now a supposed home invasion of speaker Pelosi’s home that seemingly resulted in serious injury. Aside from boosting their election prospects since they don’t seem to be doing so well, is this attack another intelligence-directed, COINTELPRO terror attack directed at a politician? Could we now see a potential series of plotted attacks against politicians and/or their families for the purposes of furthering the “domestic terrorist” agenda (among other agendas), especially if these attacks result in serious injury to or death of a politician’s loved ones? Are there bills pending legislation aimed at curbing “terrorism” likely to be passed without our awareness, and could this (and other potential attacks/plots) be used as a pretext for overriding Section 230 which indemnifies social media companies from liability for content deemed “harmful” or “dangerous”? Lastly, might this be used to fuel the “pre-crime” agenda which involves screening for mental health to “avert” crimes before they happen?

  12. Whooo!! James comes out swinging on this one! Hits a home run immediately by slamming the IPPC. Humans are not the enemy of the planet.

    In my permaculture course, we had a diverse group of people and perspectives. Including environmental activists, climate deniers, tree hugging hippies, climate realists, and fearful catastrophizers who think the IPPC reports gospel truth (teacher included). However, one thing we could all agree on was the view that humans need to be better stewards of the earth. The truth is that humans have done damage, but the technocratic, carbon tracking, energy rationing, bug eating, synthetic future will not and cannot “save Mother Earth”. Communion with nature will restore the earth-human balance; and intimate relationship of mindfulness, appreciation, and respect. Abandoning nature while trying to modify and control her will be detrimental to all life.

    Environmentalism and capitalism are not mutually exclusive. Farming and land remediation are not mutually exclusive. Here is an amazing interview with Joel Salatin, a farmer, author, and lecturer. On his farm he shares his creative methods and is a shining example of what it means to be connected to earth, your food, and your community. This is the future of regenerative farming!!

    The Farmer and the Del
    Starts at 1:39:00

    • I learned a lot watching that Highwire Episode 292 The Farmer and the Del. It took several sittings for me to finish.

      I was very, very, very impressed with the techniques and underlying knowledge behind them.
      Average “Cow Days” per acre blew my mind.
      The Virginia average is 80, but Polyface Farms gets 400.

      Polyface Farms

  13. We are the only animal I know that defecates in its own nest.

    • Bats do, chickens do, rats do too. Horses and cows do do where they sleep and where they chew.

      • This made me laugh Steve. Sounds like someone could write a funny song to those words.

        Their poo is probably a little less toxic than our poo (humans take a lot of pharma drugs now and eat toxic diets). I think good sanitation is one of the primary mechanisms to avoid disease and improve health. And humans have improved sanitation by observing the harms of living in squalor.

        Glad JC had this podcast to explore fact from fiction related to climate change. I believed the CO2 hypothesis for a long time and then I started to learn how corrupt the green movement is and what they really have in mind for humanity. They don’t care about the earth. They want to reduce the population because that way it’s easier to control. In fact, the sheer volume of people is a primary way to oppose them if humanity can see what they are doing to us. And many people do see and are waking up and that gives me inspiration and hope.

        • “Their poo is probably a little less toxic than our poo (humans take a lot of pharma drugs now and eat toxic diets). I think good sanitation is one of the primary mechanisms to avoid disease and improve health. And humans have improved sanitation by observing the harms of living in squalor.”

          You’re undoubtedly right about that but what with the antibiotics and hormones and mRNA so-called vaccinations that many animals are being injected with these days, who knows how long that will hold true.

          And while I tend to be pretty sanitary, I feel that the immune system is something that should be challenged regularly.
          By germs, not pharmaceuticals and gene altering poisons.

          Its good for people who have strong immune systems to get their hands into the soil even if the cat sometimes uses your garden for its personal latrine. Its healthy to touch critters, clean poop from the coop and get licked by dogs.
          In moderation.

          • Yes agree about challenging immune systems. I regularly kiss my dog and cat snouts! I love snouts and even kiss paws from time to time even the pads! But I need more contact with soil too.

  14. Mark Levin guest the late Dr. Patrick Michaels, director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute in 15 mins of brilliant assessment of reality…

    Basically…in one hundred years of study, world temp has warmed up 9/10ths of ONE DEGREE.

  15. This is another nice Tony Heller video. Let’s be honest, Mr. T is like a broken record, and that is exactly what it takes to get through to the masses that are slow on the uptake.

    Mann made global warming, one has to appreciate the pun..

  16. In the early aughts, I was listening to two friends in a heated debate over the findings regarding AGW, and I decided they are clearly not scientists, so I began evaluating their discussion a little differently.

    The first thing they did not discuss was that even if the claims of the AGW side were true, it does not justify draconian economic measures. However, since this wasn’t part of the discussion, it really seemed like the anit-AGW position was to accept that *if* the AGW claims were true, *then* we should implement draconian economic measures.

    I stopped paying attention to really anything related to AGW or climate change or whatever after that, but I do wonder how come more people don’t take this approach in the discussion?

    The question of, “under what scientific finding is it acceptable for me to become a slave?” or some similar line of evaluation doesn’t seem to be used. In other words, take a more philosophical approach to the discussion and ask: why it is required that someone take all freedoms and liberties from everyone to resolve this problem?

    • Good point. This is similar to debunking Covid revealed it’s not a significant threat to humanity, thus the measures are not required. But even if it was a significant health threat does government have the right to enslave the population?

      No, it certainly does not. I know this on an intuitive level, but I’d love to hear a philosophical explanation for this belief.

      But I also think that freedom is a natural phenomenon that leads to the continuation of life on the planet. It’s vital to existence.

      But even if we look at the philosophical issues, examining the lies about climate change and covid are important to carefully and thoroughly debunk.

      One of the very easy and basic reasons I started to doubt the climate change narrative is because they have been saying the end is near for decades and yet here we are. Also, the fact that they are targeting CO2 which is a beneficial molecule to living organisms was sketchy to me. Every animal on the planet is a carbon based life form and the narrative to demonize carbon is very weird to me.

      Life on planet earth does have an end when the sun inevitably burns out, and the climate will inevitably change. Will humanity try to travel out into space to find another planet when we get closer to that time, I wonder.

      Back to your question about if there would ever be a scientific reason to be a slave and I really don’t think there is any reason that slavery is acceptable. It’s always unethical because it squanders the persons time here which is limited. It takes away something that cannot be replaced.

  17. Interview 1761 – James Corbett Separates Climate Fact From Fiction

    The long list of references in the shownotes is extraordinary!

  18. Is the solution to pollution to make a contribution?

    Al Gore misrepresented the relationship between carbon dioxide and temperature change, probably because he was angry about big oil cartel election fraud in Florida. “Master builder” Randall Carlson agrees that they are lying about climate change. In a discussion about ancient geological cycles, he said that ice ages cause economic devastation and that warming cycles promote economic prosperity.

    “The Great Global Warming Swindle” documentary reveals it is cosmic rays (from the black hole @ the center of the Milky Way galaxy) that are causing the sun to heat up (as our solar system crosses the galactic plane every 12,000 years). The sun then causes the earth to warm up, cyclically. Increased carbon dioxide levels are the end result of this cosmic process, not the driver.

    Despite the morons in the green ecology movement, I see the future value of alternative energy research & design and sustainable environmental technology. Big tech fascism, driven by narcissistic billionaire sociopaths, is an unsustainable cult, and they know it. They are being exposed and undermined by the very technologies that they use to exploit their victims.

    Nevertheless, if you criticize thin-skinned Satanic Atlantis Socialists like Fabian Obama, he’ll kill your dad in the hospital, shut off your water, sabotage your home, destroy your career, slash your tires, waste your time, take away all of your income with frivolous lawsuits, have you tortured by the police in various ways, and the list goes on and on without mercy. If you criticize his top technocracy campaign contributors for being unqualified college “drop outs,” he’ll have your neighbor throw a decapitated pigeon in your back yard 27 minutes later!

    Do not be afraid of those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

    • Yes, it’s official, I’m a flake (but not a snowflake).
      The rant below was addressed to you mkey in reaction to the link you posted.

  19. I’m pretty wiped at the moment, but it seems to me that Tony Heller and Don Easterbrook would have a field day tearing this exposé to pieces. And they’re geologists too.

    To be honest I’d have to watch this demonstration again to ask any intelligent questions about it but that won’t be possible so nevermind,

    Doesn’t CO2 lag behind temperature increases? Haven’t there been cold periods with high CO2 levels? Could the trace gases CO2 and Methane produced by the primitive farming activities of 20 million people 8000 years ago have rivalled the effects of the Milankovich cycles? No caveats about measuring “global temperatures”? I guess we’ll see who was right between Valentina Zharkova and this guy.
    Furthermore, I was disappointed he did not draw more parallels and/or comparisons and/or interactivity between galactic phenomena and the Earth’s climate the way Nir Shaviv from The Cloud Mystery and Tallbloke Roger Tattersall do.

    In fact, it’s irrelevant, but I found the guy singularly annoying even before he began his passively aggressive alarming man-made global warming shtick.

    Anyhow, thanks for posting, I’m gonna sleep on it.

  20. It would be helpful, cook, if you would specify who you are addressing. If by any chance you’re commenting on my remarks just above, then I would exhort you to read them more carefully, as I said exactly that: temperature rises precede carbon dioxide level rises, with the warm temperatures causing CO2 outgassing from the oceans, (as explained by Tony Heller using (among others) President Obama’s stout as an example X-)).

    The following video by Tony Heller is very interesting and definitely contradicts mkey’s video above as it explains a phenomenon knonw as “saturation”. Indeed, Heller explains that there’s only so much heat in the form of infrared rays that can be blocked by greenhouse gases (the most predominant of which is water vapor).

  21. Your article is interesting and does also address very briefly the phenomenon of saturation when it explains why there is no runaway greenhouse effect: “heat loss catches up with heat retention as long as heat can escape from the atmosphere.

    I would quibble with one part. Following this observation:

    Models suggest that rising greenhouse gases, including CO2, explain about 40% of the warming as the ice ages ended.

    you end with this:

    And while the rises in CO2 a few hundred years after the start of interglacials can only be explained by rising temperatures, the full extent of the temperature increases over the following 4000 years can only be explained by the rise in CO2 levels.

    which seems like a rather strange conclusion from a writer that admits the effects of Milankovich cycles but seems to ignore a range of other cosmic phenomena (such as GCRs as a single example) that might be more impactful to Earth’s climate than what appears to be a self-regulating greenhouse effect comprised of water vapor and CO2. But perhaps I need to reread the article.

    Anyhow, time for some morning coffee and off to the hamsterwheel with me.

    • what appears to be a self-regulating greenhouse effect comprised of water vapor and CO2.

      should be:

      what appears to be a self-regulating greenhouse effect comprised MAINLY of water vapor and CO2.


    • In your article, cook, there’s also this littly beauty:

      Some sceptics – not scientists – have seized upon this idea and are claiming that the relation is one way, that temperature determines CO2 levels but CO2 levels do not affect temperature.

      which rather misrepresents the situation through oversimplification and button-pushing (with the loaded connotation of the word “sceptic”.)

      But I wouldn’t expect anything else from this mainstream magazine that must curtsey and genuflect to the prevailing AGW panic or else.

      But, come to think of it, that’s already implied by the title of the article:

      Climate myths: Ice cores show CO2 increases lag behind temperature rises, disproving the link to global warming

  22. What matters for global warming is how much the additional forcing bumps up the temperature. This depends in part on the assumption made about climate feedback, since it’s the positive feedback from much more abundant water vapor in the atmosphere that is thought to amplify the modest temperature rise from CO2 acting alone. The strength of the water vapor feedback is closely tied to relative humidity. Assuming positive water vapor feedback and constant relative humidity with increasing altitude, the preprint authors find that the extra forcing from doubled CO2 causes a temperature increase of 2.2 to 2.3 degrees Celsius (4.0 to 4.1 degrees Fahrenheit). If the water vapor feedback is set to zero, then the temperature increase is only 1.4 degrees Celsius (2.5 degrees Fahrenheit).

    When I read this I think of chemtrails: could SAIs be designed to precipitate cooling by absorbing humidity in the atmosphere (to accelerate the “evils” perpetrated on terrestrial life by cold temperatures, for example, in order to control the very existence of life on the planet)?

  23. Just for the climate debate/reporting record:

    Seems Willis Eschenbach has, via scatterplots, found a novel way of looking at how clouds impact climate that would further invalidate existing climate model results:

    Still another chapter in the The Cloud Mystery

  24. Another source for climate sensibility is the author of Landscapes and Cycles: An Environmentalist’s Journey to Climate Skepticism, Jim Steele. He also has a website here:

    I learned about him through an interview the late David Crowe did with him on his podcast, The Infectious Myth.
