Please Support Our End of Year Appeal

Written by John O'Sullivan

It’s that time of the year again and we are humbly asking for your help to keep PSI afloat during 2020. Any donation is warmly welcomed – please be a valued supporter of our cause.

As readers who follow PSI will know, 2019 was massively successful. Perhaps one of our greatest achievements was supporting Dr Tim Ball in his victory over hockey stick data fraudster Michael Mann in the ‘science trial of the century.

Below is our detailed and ambitious plan for the coming year.  Please peruse and be a part of our shared success to defeat junk science.

PRINCIPIA SCIENTIFIC INTERNATIONAL CIC is an association of 4,000+ international scientists, academics engineers and laypersons formed since 2011 to hold to account government-sponsored fraudulent and biased climate science.

PRINCIPIA SCIENTIFIC INTERNATIONAL (PSI) is maintained as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and legally incorporated as a UK non-profit with offices in London, England. Our inaugural chairman and co-founder is world-renowned retired skeptic Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball. CEO is John O’Sullivan.

We are seeking substantial funding to implement a package of measures to advance our important mission to expose government sponsored junk climate science used to justify unnecessary trillion-dollar tax raising policies.

Our greatest achievement to date is supporting Dr Ball in his heroic court battle in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Legendary singer and U.S. political commentator, Pat Boone has written articles on the significance of this.

Dr Ball successfully defended a multi-million-dollar libel suit filed against him by the alarmist ‘world leading climate scientist’ Dr Michael E Mann of Penn State University. The case lasted eight years and the judge dismissed Mann’s claim on August 22, 2019 due to Mann’s “unreasonable delay” in submitting key evidence.

Mann’s “delay” was his withholding of the “secret science” – hidden data behind his infamous “hockey stick” graph which for 20 years has been the rallying point for UN climate alarmists and policymakers bent on raising taxes and cutting emissions of carbon dioxide.

As experts in this field of science it is the informed opinion of Dr Ball and PSI members that Dr Mann engaged in a criminal conspiracy with a clique of international government-sponsored researchers.

The purpose of the climate Ponzi scheme was to fabricate a record of the past 1,000 years of earth’s temperatures to make disappear the hitherto widely-accepted Medieval Warm Period (MWP), known by scholars for decades as the most reliable proxy evidence from historic records that global temperatures until 500 years ago, were warmer than today.

In tandem with faking the global temperature record, since the 1980’s other biased government researchers systematically resuscitated and revamped the discredited hypothesis of the greenhouse gas effect (GHE). The GHE falsely asserts that carbon dioxide (CO2) is earth’s climate control knob. For 20 years bought off academics have cited the GHE as the scientific cornerstone to bring into being a socialist one-world government.

Our mission has been to demonstrate to the public and unbiased policymakers that:

(a) national science bodies have been infiltrated by activists who have relied on false accounting, cherry-picking, politicized groupthink and negligence to re-write the accepted historic climate record, and;

(b) that the consensus theory of climate change premised on false science that CO2 ‘traps heat’ and raises temperatures is sustained in the mainstream media by peer-pressure, threats and legal coercion and most scientists do not believe CO2 is our planet’s climate control knob.

STRATEGY TO DISCREDIT THE FALSIFIED TEMPERATURE RECORD

In the last decade PSI members have used freedom of information laws (FOIA) to seek to compel government-sponsored university academics to share their data with independent scientists to verify their claims.

We have been frustrated in that endeavour by institutional gatekeepers in government, academia and the courts.

In the UK skeptics used FOI law to petition for the nation’s primary climate scientist, Professor Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) to release to the public the vast body of original global temperature records the institution held. Instead of complying with the law Jones destroyed irreplaceable original documents that accounted for three-quarters of the world’s historic temperature records. Due to this criminal act many nations no longer have a verifiable historic climate record.

Despite the crime having been committed, the UK regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) ruled that while the CRU was in breach of the Freedom of Information Act – an offence which is punishable by an unlimited fine no action would be taken.

The ICO said it was unable to prosecute anyone involved because the complaint was made too late. [1]

The only recourse left to us was to pursue a coordinated public campaign to name and shame the guilty scientists. Dr Ball valiantly played his part in identifying and exposing one of the top figures: Michael E Mann by publicly declaring Mann ‘belongs in the state pen, not Penn State. For this Ball was served with a SLAPP suit (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) by Mann’s expensive Canadian libel lawyers. Thanks only to the generous philanthropy of Robert and Rebekah Mercer, Ball was able to fund the case to a successful conclusion.

Dr Ball and PSI now seek further funds to drive home this turn of events. We intend to solicit legal experts in the United States to work with us to press for a full RICO investigation of Dr Mann and his co-conspirators for probable cause upon Mann’s spoliation in the Mann-v-Ball lawsuit.

PARTNERING WITH SPECIALIST LAWYERS

We seek $400,000 in donor funds to implement a legal strategy of filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits to investigate this misconduct by government officials. Judicial Watch is persuaded that climate science is “fraud science” and filed lawsuits seeking to force the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to release the correspondence of climate scientists who published a 2015 study in the journal Science. [2]

We will carefully craft and implement more probing FOIA requests with the view to ultimately obtaining a compelling case for a full RICO investigation under a Trump administration.

Budget sought: $400,000

STRATEGY TO EXPOSE THE FALSE SCIENCE OF THE GREENHOUSE GAS EFFECT (GHE)

BOOK PROMOTION & MARKETING

PSI’s initial foray into exposing the false science of the greenhouse gas theory, the junk science relied upon by alarmist government researchers, was our 2010 book, ‘Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory.’

None of the scientific claims in the book have been refuted by any published peer-reviewed study and it remains pristine as a valid refutation

The book’s lead author was Dr Tim Ball who was backed by co-authors with PhD’s in relevant core disciplines including Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. These experts in their field exposed the lesser scientific skills of government researchers who had incorrectly modelled earth’s climate using fudged data and inapplicable parameters.

Our second book, ‘Slaying the Sky Dragon: Victory Lap’ co-authored by Dr Ball and explaining details of his epic legal win, is now with our publishers ready for launch. The book also addresses key scientific developments made since the first book’s publication.

We are already much indebted to legendary singer, Pat Boone, who has recently come out to publicly endorse Dr Tim Ball and PSI. But we need many more honest intermediaries with a high public profile who will assist to raise wider public awareness of the fatal flaws in the science behind CO2-obsessed cultists.

To ensure the book receives optimum public exposure and is accepted as the authoritative disproof of the junk science of man-made global warming, PSI aims to engage with leading marketing specialists, book wholesalers and distributors, book reviewers and media personalities.

We estimate the need to have a fighting fund of $600,000 to be able to implement a sophisticated book marketing scheme which can fund travel arrangements, conferences, media interviews, advertising, paid reviews, etc.

Budget sought: $600,000

DISPROVING JUNK CLIMATE SCIENCE USING LAB EXPERIMENTS

Some background: In 2011 PSI researchers including Professor Nasif Nahle (Monterrey, Mexico) proved that by application of standard gas equations any “heat trapping” effect by CO2 could last not a moment longer than a miniscule five milliseconds – that’s quicker than the blink of an eye to non-scientists. As such, carbon dioxide could not possibly be our climate’s control knob.

Also, in 2011 our senior scientist, Joseph E Postma (who works for the Indian and Canadian space agencies as a flight telemetry specialist) published his paper ‘A Discussion on The Absence of a Measurable Greenhouse Effect,’ substantiating the findings of Professor Nahle that empirical evidence supports the claim carbon dioxide cannot measurably warm the atmosphere. Other papers have backed these findings.

In 2018 ‘Six new Peer-Reviewed Studies Show Climate Models Are Useless’ vindicating PSI scientist claims that government climate science relies on GIGO (‘garbage in, garbage out’). While 22 independent studies also show the scientific community is headed towards attributing zero climate forcing to carbon dioxide. See: ‘Recent CO2 ‘Climate Sensitivity’ Estimates Headed Towards Zero.

To enforce this emerging message of increasing verifiable scientific proofs of skeptical claims that CO2 is innocent, PSI has an ambitious plan to perform several controlled laboratory experiments in different locations, in different countries, which will show conclusively that CO2 cannot operate as a driver of earth’s climate.

Budget sought: $95,000

YOUTUBE CHANNEL & FILM & ANIMATION

Scientific concepts can be very difficult to convey to the general public. Few people have the education to navigate the mine field of competing scientific claims made in the climate debate by alarmists and skeptics. The media playing field is rigged in favour of those supporting the alarmist agenda of raising taxation and limiting personal freedoms ‘for the greater good’ and ‘saving the planet.’

We can only successfully counter that wholesale propaganda by having tailor-made and readily accessible video, film presentations crafted by skilled media professionals working with the best skeptic scientists.

The creation of a small but dedicated visual media department with qualified experts to oversee and assist grassroots film makers and animators to create quality visual content to post on Youtube channels, select science websites and for use in presentations to policymakers and potential donors.

Budget sought: $250,000

COMPUTER SYSTEMS, WEB SERVICES UPGRADE

PSI currently has 4,000 members and our websites attract between 12,000 to 25,000 visits per day. Our current web hosting, security and record maintenance is inadequate to handle a proposed increase of visitor traffic. Our data shows that site usage has increased by over 154 percent in the last calendar year. Our current restricted service package means we suffer frequent ‘down time’ whenever an article we post ‘goes viral.’ We therefore become the victims of our own success whereby our main website can be offline right at the time it is most needed to be online.

The worldwide popularity of Dr Tim Ball and his recent legal victory is generating more interest in our work. We conservatively project the growth in traffic to remain consistent at around 60 – 70 percent for the coming 12 months. But the more our work gains traction, the more we need to expand our internet capabilities and performance.

The more successful our websites and the larger our online traffic, the greater our need to have advanced firewall protection, a dedicated server, offline systems back up, technical support and reactiveness.

Budget sought: $35,000

OFFICE RENT, UTILITIES, SERVICES 

PSI currently rents a small London office with secretarial and mailing facilities at 27 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1N 3AX. International dialling: (44) 20 7419 5027.  We currently do not have facilities to convene meetings on site.

To raise our public profile and credibility we envisage an expansion of our offices so we can more amenably entertain international visitors.

Budget sought:    $98,000

STAFFING 

PSI currently employs only our CEO full-time. To facilitate our ambitious growth plan it is envisaged two more full-time staff be hired, plus six part-time assistants.

Budget sought $250,000

    John, no one likes having to ban someone, but thanks for your efforts in keeping certain crackpots off your blog.

    One such crackpot starts off accepting the reduced solar flux of 168 W/m^2, which indicates he doesn’t understand radiative physics. Next, he misrepresents others by claiming they support the “168”. And because his nonsense has never gained any traction, he can only resort to constantly behaving like a blog terrorist.

    You do a great job of providing a forum where science can be discussed. Unfortunately, there are those that would attempt to tear down and destroy your efforts. There is no excuse for such childish behavior.

      That Doug is a troll is completely true, however, why complain about the one thing he got right?

      How much insolation reaches the surface over 24 hours at an average location?

      It’s ~163 W/m^2.

        He didn’t get it right, Zoe. He used the 168 W/m^2 from pseudoscience, which is a meaningless value since flux can’t be averaged. He got it wrong. His “heat creep” just wouldn’t creep.

        You make the same kind of mistake believing geothermal is a major player.

        Why does Earth’s surface temperature drop so drastically after sunset, and then rise so drastically after sunrise? It’s almost like the sun far exceeds any contribution from geothermal, huh?

          Geran,
          Flux is just energy/time. Why don’t you think we can divide energy by time to get a flux?

          Why it gets hotter or colder depending on the presence of an additional 165 W/m^2 is a silly question.

            Well Zoe, yesterday I gave you the last word, because I don’t have the time to waste bickering with you. So you chose to reveal your ignorance of the basic physics: “Flux is just energy/time.”

            “Flux” is NOT “energy/time”. “Flux” is “power/area”.

            Learn some physics.

            Radiant flux is measured in WATTS

            What is W/m^2?

            That’s irradiance or flux DENSITY.

            Geran,
            164 W/m^2 is still flux density, but we call it flux for short. But it’s not flux, it’s flux density.

            Why can we add joules hitting a meter squared every second?

            Water vapor can absorb in both infrared and visible light. Water vapor doesn’t compare one band to the other before it absorbs.

            Planck’s law is just an integral of spectral radiance over a frequency/wavelength range. Do you know what an integral is?

            Do you?

            An emitted E/M flux is composed of photons. The spectrum of the emission is based on Planck’s Law. The spectra from two different surfaces would be different. The two fluxes could not be simply added. Just like you cannot simply add aardvarks and pumpkins.

            An analogy might be two race cars. One has a max speed of 200 mph. The other has a max speed of 150 mph. Racing together, the cars could not go 350 mph! Adding the max speeds has no meaning.

            Infrared from CO2 does NOT add to solar flux. Geothermal does NOT add to solar flux. Solar would override both.

            Ice emits about 300 W/m^2. One ice cube emits 300 W/m^2. Two ice cubes do NOT then emit 600 W/m^2. Emitted fluxes do NOT simply add.

            Learn some physics so you don’t have to look something up on wikipedia every time.

            Planck’s Law says you can add spectral radiance at 10 microns and 11 microns and 12 microns …

            So why not solar at 1 micron or 0.5 micron?

            If standing waves of various frequencies can exist in the same space then you can add them, by definition. Why are you dicarding existing standing waves?

            Zoe, when you have as little understanding as you do, it’s best to stay away from getting more and more confused by more things you don’t understand, such as Planck’s Law, and standing waves.

            Just keep it simple, until you can fully understand. Do you fully understand that an ice cube cannot radiatively warm a cup of room-temperature coffee? Do you understand that adding more ice cubes wll not radiatively warm the cup of coffee?

            One simple concept at a time–“baby steps”.

            Geran,
            Ice cubes all emit the same radiation. The sun doesn’t emit the same radiation. If you put a piece of paper between two ice cubes, then both sides will receive 315 W/m^2. All the paper molecules will resonate with the all the standing waves that form a BB 315 W/m^2. The sun doesn’t emit BB radiation here on earth, and you can add its standing waves to BB standing waves.

            Look at the absorption spectrum of water vapor!

            Do you fully understand that an ice cube cannot radiatively warm a cup of room-temperature coffee?

    One thing I noticed about Doug Cotton on one of his videos is that he is deeply religious. In my experience, when people have deep religious beliefs they lack the ability to consider their own thoughts critically. I think critical thinking is a muscle that must be exercised or it atrophies. And Doug is pathetically dishonest on an intellectual level.

    The mistake is to think we might be able to reason with him. Believers never stop believing. And that is a problem because so much of science panders to what people are inclined to believe.

      See, I can agree with you.
      Doug has a religious view of “maximum energy production”. He thinks entropy is some kind of self-producing factory, instead of just a ratio of reversible heat to temperature. He also thinks increasing temperature increases entropy, when the case is quite the opposite.

        You again demonstrate you haven’t got a clue about physics. I think you should stick to money matters as that is what you know. You are as arrogant and misguided as Doug but you fool yourself into thinking your unfounded assertions (like a one-way energy transfer of EMR, not supported by anything but your deluded made up versions of things you pretend you have read).

        No one will ever change you or Doug. Geran is also a brick that can’t change he thinks he is totally right although he also is clueless like you and Doug.

        Here are some articles for you on Entropy. It increases as temperature goes up. You are plain wrong about that and don’t understand the concept.

          Norman states: “Here are some articles for you on Entropy. It increases as temperature goes up.”

          Poor Norman finds some more links he can’t understand.

          Entropy does NOT increase with temperature, except in certain cases such as an exothermic chemical reaction. If you heat water (temperature increases), entropy of the water decreases. If the sun heats Earth’s surface (temperature increases), surface entropy decreases. And, if a campfire burns down, its temperature decreases, yet its entropy has increased.

          Poor Norman has NO background in thermodynamics, that’s why he must resort to insults, false accusations, and misrepresentations.

This video will explain the flaws in your thinking of entropy but unfortunately they will not change your incorrect view. Nothing can change you or Geran. Both of you are forever stuck in the land of bad make believe physics and neither of you can come to the real physics. You have too much of your ego in the wrong side to see the correct side.

            Lost in your own created reality that you can’t give up no matter what evidence is shown to you. Reality and truth are not your goals. It is hard for a sane, logical rational person to understand the way the crackpot mind works. It seems to generate its own ideas and reject the established ideas (which are based upon years of experiments, logical thought process, valid mathematical equations).

            The video is correct and you are not because you said TEMPERATURE, not heat.

            No not stupid at all. I actually have a logical thought process without the need to make up my own version of physics and pretend I know what I am talking about. You obviously did not watch the video at all. Adding heat to a closed system increases the temperature except at the melting or boiling point. All other temperature increases will also increase entropy (disorder and more available states as stated very clearly in the video)

            Yes, you are extremely stupid.

            “Adding heat to a closed system increases the temperature”

            If temperature increase is exactly proportional to temperature increase, then entropy doesn’t change. That means it’s outside this discussion.

            “All other temperature increases will also increase entropy”

            No, it can not.

            Entropy = Heat / Temperature

            You can’t increase the denominator and increase the result, idiot.

            Do you possess any math or logic in that brain of yours or do you just say things to troll?

            You can easily get a change in entropy if both numerator and denominator increase.
            If you have an energy input Q of 2000 joules which then raises the temperature 10 K you have an entropy change of 200. Entropy is measured as joules/K.

            I am not sure what point you are trying to make. Watch the video again. Look at some problems and solutions dealing with entropy. Is it possible to have a rational or logic conversation with you (not possible with Geran or JDHuffman)? Are you just quick to think people stupid if you make an incorrect claim and someone points out your lack of knowledge? You seem closed. Hope your mind does not stay in that state. You are not very logical in your posts but at least you realize Geran knows nothing of physics but he does like to pretend he does. His comments are among the dumbest except for his twin in stupid comments…JDHuffman. Neither of these two jokers knows any physics but they sure pretend they do.

            “If you have an energy input Q of 2000 joules which then raises the temperature 10 K you have an entropy change of 200.”

            Entropy = Q/T = 2000/10000 = 20%

            You’ve reduced entropy.

            You already forgot what you claimed.

          Norman,
          Did you read your own link:

          “This ratio of Q/T is defined to be the change in entropy Delta S for a reversible process,”

          And I said:

          “He thinks entropy is some kind of self-producing factory, instead of just a ratio of reversible heat to temperature. ”

          ” (like a one-way energy transfer of EMR, not supported by anything but your deluded made up versions of things you pretend you have read).”

          You can read the same thing and see that I’m right, if you wanted to.

          Idiot, when the ball rolls down it displaces air upwards. The net change in PE for both the ball and air is ZERO.

          Retard, just because there’s a thermal gradient doesn’t mean it was caused top-down.

      Doug,
      Loschmidt was right, and you are wrong. The gradient is formed bottom-up, from hot to cold, not cold to hot – which supposedly causes further warming.

      Doug,
      God makes Himself quite unmistakably known to me with words of knowledge and miracles and, yes, I give Him the credit for enlightening me as to how His Universe operates and how He controls climate with planets and the Sun (just like He controls the tides with our Moon) and with cosmic rays that seed clouds.

      James:
      Hmm. Well, If you have a direct line to God maybe you can ask him/her some questions. He seems to have a bug up his ass with respect to getting everybody to believe in him/her. What’s that all about? I mean, you’d think that if he was omnipotent, omniscient and the creator of heaven and earth that he’s be a little more secure.

    PSI as my budget gets very tight around this time of year, I’ll have to put off the donation until after March.
    However please keep up the good work publishing better science reviews than just about any other freely available site.
    And if I don’t get to say later have a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

    I fully support the work John and PSI are doing, it is an invaluable service for truth and free speech. It’s interesting to note the commenter who keeps inventing new identities for himself, but reveals who he is with his style of writing and repeated references to heat creep and his own work 🙂

    Crackpot will not give up $10,000 because crackpot can never be wrong in his own mind.

    This post ia about PSI’s appeal for donations, yet the majority of commenters have completely ignored that and just continued arguing with each other about the same things they’ve argued with each other about numerous times before.

    Doug,

    “Josef Loschmidt who, in 1876, explained why it is gravity that warms the surface”

    I challenge you to find where Loschmidt claimed this!!!

    Loschmidt explains the gradient emanating from the surface upwards, not vice versa as you claim.

    Show us where L claims “gravity warms the surface”, or forever shut up, you annoying pile of poop.

      You just can’t shut up can you Zoe. Always have to have the last word which makes you think you’re right. All you’re doing is encouraging the fool.

      Sorry 🙁 I assumed he was misinformed and not insane and uneducable. He is a very sick man.
