The Catastrophic Antropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) theory is in trouble. The leaders of the CAGW have found live debate not to be to their liking as they typically loose when up against skeptics. So they have resorted to using the media and the liberals in government in an attempt to silence the Skeptics.
Doctor Richard Lindzen, professor emeritus of atmospheric sciences at MIT and a distinguished senior fellow of the Cato Institute, has written a rebuttal. It was published in the Op Ed section of the Wall Street Journal. Because it is behind a pay wall, I am using Lindzen’s full rebuttal as published in “The Hockey Schtick”
Peak Oil is that point in time when the world runs out of new finds of oil and from that point on, oil becomes more scarce and more costly. The Department of Energy’s Energy Information Agency (EIA) forecast that in the year 2040 about 81% of our energy needs will be satisfied by fossil fuels. The following data is from the 2014 EIA Annual Energy Outlook for U.S. energy consumption in 2040:

The Pacific Research Institute produced this video that reports we are not about to arrive at Peak Oil any time soon. Which is a good thing as the EIA does not expect renewables to be a significant contributor to our energy needs by 2040.
Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) predictions based upon the output of their climate models have a poor record for accuracy. Examples of zombies would be those that say Arctic sea ice will melt away completely by such and such date. The date came, it didn’t happen. But like a zombie, it comes back to life when another expert tells us the Arctic sea ice will melt away completely by some new date.
This posting will high light a few of the failed predictions.
