Guess: When Was the Last Time that the Globe Had a Month Cooler than the 1951-1980 Average? What Are the Chances of That?

There Is No Global Warming, screams a NewsMax headline yesterday.

No Global Warming? Let’s play make-a-guess using NASA’s GISS temperature data dating from January 1880 to May 2015 to test that assertion.

To play the game, make a guess: how many months has it been since the globe had a monthly temperature reading cooler than […]

Fact Check: Does A NASA Scientist Say The Earth Will Be Plunged Into Darkness For Six Days This June?

“Earth Will Experience 6 Days Of Total Darkness In June 2015″ – such is the claim made in many places around the Internet, from BeforeItsNews.com to AnonymousMags.com

“No Global Warming”? April 2015 was the 3rd warmest April on Record for Planet Earth

Marc Morano of the Exxon-funded and Chevron-funded website Climate Depot declared in April 2015 that “There is no global warming crisis! … now going on almost two decades of no global warming.” Echoing the same theme, Nancy J.

On Earth Day 2015, Consider the Year So Far

I hear it’s “Earth Day” today. Hooray! Do we have an Earth Day carol yet?

I Wish I had a Lump of Soil I Wish I had a Clump of Clay I’d Mix it up with Compost And Call it Okay, Ooooooo…

Then maybe to top it off, we could exchange climate change reports. You […]

NASA Scientists Claim To Know The Future

In order to whip up enthusiasm about their work, and to gain attention for themselves as individuals, NASA scientists were willing to make definite predictions about future scientific studies, claiming to know what will happen before it happens. When scientists engage in this kind of exaggerated claim to knowledge, they cast doubt on their credibility as individuals and as a collective work. […]

“What Global Warming?” asks North Country New York. This Global Warming, answers NASA.

In a February 12 2015 letter to the editor of New York State’s North Country Now, an anonymous reader asks, “What Global Warming? Whatever happened to global warming? I feel short changed!”

You see, it’s been cold lately. How could that be if we’re experiencing global warming?

There are two answers to that question. The […]

Congressional Global Warming Denier Falls Under the Weather

Here at Irregular Times, we’re assembling a database to closely following the actions of the members of the new 114th Congress; look for it to come out early next week. As we’ve been working on the database, one name has been noticeably missing from all roll call votes in Congress so far this year: that […]

Did NASA Climatologist Just Say We Will Have Global Cooling?

Lisa Haven, writing for the right wing web site Before It’s News, predicts a wide range of disaster for 2015. She forecasts “the rise of a One World Religion, an economic collapse, policed streets, and more Biblical end times signs… riots, earthquakes and likely numerous deaths“. Yet, the headshot that goes along with her byline […]

As Deniers Cry “Global Cooling,” the Globe Warms in Autumn 2014

At the WyoSkeptic blog, a new post has been placed in the “global cooling” category, a category that contains dozens of entries. WyoSkeptic’s latest post “shows” that global warming cannot be happening because the town of Gillette, Wyoming shows little change from 1978-2014.

The difference between Gillette, Wyoming over the past 36 years and the […]

Why Orion?

In about an hour and a half from now, NASA will send an unmanned version of its new Orion spaceship up into orbit, riding on the back of a Delta IV Heavy rocket. It’s very retro-looking, without any fins or wings at all. The full name of the spaceship is rather institutional: Orion Multi-Purpose Crew […]
