“What gets us into trouble is not what we don’t know.
It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so.”
Most climate scientists “know for sure” that observed increases in greenhouse-gas emissions are the primary cause of observed global warming. They are so convinced that they refuse to even consider the possibility that there could be the slightest error with greenhouse-warming theory. They summarily dismiss any questioning of greenhouse-warming theory as spam.

Meanwhile, a scientific revolution in the physics of heat shows unequivocally that greenhouse-warming theory is not only mistaken, it is physically impossible. It “just ain’t so.” This stark dichotomy frames the 2021 Crisis in Climate Science at a time when climate scientists are saying we must make important, difficult, and expensive decisions to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, world leaders, convinced by a very broad consensus among climate scientists, are planning to spend tens of trillions of dollars under the 2015 Paris Agreement to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions—something we now understand will be a monumental waste of money because it will have no significant effect lowering global temperatures now or in the future.
Greenhouse-warming theory is rapidly becoming the most expensive mistake ever made in the history of science, economically, politically, and environmentally.
Science is not done by popular vote. Science is not done by consensus. As Michael Crichton, MD and author, put it:
“The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.”
We need to bring genuine scientific debate back to climate science before we waste trillions of dollars. We need to triage this crisis in climate science right now. Time is of the essence. The longer we delay, the greater the ultimate cost of this major mistake will become.
This website is the result of more than fourteen years of careful, detailed, full-time work re-examining the evidence throughout Earth history for climate change, re-examining the physics of global warming for the first time since 1900, and systematically re-examining all the assumptions that form the foundation of greenhouse-warming theory. I started simply trying to understand how the major warming at the end of the last ice age was precisely contemporaneous with the greatest volcanism recorded in Greenland ice. Large explosive volcanoes are well observed throughout history to cause global cooling for a few years. How could volcanoes also cause warming? As I worked my way through more than 2,000 scientific papers and shelves of books, clear scientific evidence led me to these most unexpected conclusions.

Since 1988, thousands of scientists have worked very hard, through the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), to demonstrate broad consensus on the greenhouse warming theory of climate change in order to convince world leaders to spend the major amounts of money required to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. This strategy was successful with the Paris Agreement of 12 December 2015.
Some even say “The science is settled. Let’s get on with the solution.”
Consensus, however, is the stuff of politics, while debate is the stuff of science. This drive for consensus ended up derailing the scientific method. When scientists discovered potentially problematic data, they became more likely to try to rationalize the discrepancy, rather than to question the theory.
Become informed. Help put the debate back into climate science. Science is never “settled.” We still have a lot to learn.
