Welcome to Glowbull warming

As you can see from the name of this blog, I’m not a fan of alarmism (Now Catastrophism) when it comes to climate change, although this hasn’t always been the case, I saw the light a few years ago.

Over time, I hope to bring some fresh ideas to those who aren’t sure what CAGW (catastrophic anthropogenic global warming) scepticism is and my intention is to keep things as light hearted as possible.


It’s time I added the email exchange I had with Kevin Trenberth in 2012:

to trenberth
Dear Sir,I politely request that you cease and desist referring to those of us who’re skeptical of the seriousness of AGW as deniers and denialists.
The vast majority of us deny nothing.
Personally, I do not deny AGW, GW, CC, ACC or science.

If you would kindly pass this message on to any of your colleagues who are of the same disposition, I’d be obliged.

Yours sincerely,


Kevin Trenberth <trenbert@ucar.edu>


to me
If you are a skeptic then that is fine but if you do deny basic facts then
if the shoe fits, wear it.

Thanks for the speedy reply.From that I gather that you don’t intend to attempt to be more specific as to whom you’re referring in future when using the D word, leaving it up to the reader to decide?

    It looks like there’s no point in further discussion, the end is nigh:

    Global Warming Inevitable This Century, NSF Study Finds
    Limiting greenhouse gases won’t help now, say scientists
    Despite efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, global warming and a greater increase in sea level are inevitable during this century, according to a new study performed by a team of climate modelers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colo.

    Indeed, say the researchers, whose work was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), globally averaged surface air temperatures would still rise one degree Fahrenheit (about a half degree Celsius) by the year 2100, even if no more greenhouse gases were added to the atmosphere. And the resulting transfer of heat into the oceans would cause global sea levels to rise another 4 inches (11 centimeters) from thermal expansion alone.
