Quote of the Week: “It is one thing to impose drastic measures and harsh economic penalties when an environmental problem is clear-cut and severe. It is quite another to do so when the environmental problem is largely hypothetical and not substantiated by careful observations. This is definitely the case with global warming.” – Frederick Seitz, Introduction to Fred Singer’s Hot Talk, Cold Science (1999 and 2021))

Number of the Week: – Down from 80.3% to 80.2% in a decade, but up 15%


By Ken Haapala, President, Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP)

Double Checking: Early this week, TWTW reviewed an article with a disturbing headline: “NASA: Earth is trapping ‘unprecedented’ amount of heat, warming ‘faster than expected’.” The article did not contain a link to the paper, which was published in Geophysical Research Letters, only a link to an article in the Washington Post. It included a quote from the lead author of the paper, Norman Loeb: “The Earth is warming faster than expected” and a time frame starting in 2005 ended in 2019.
