J. Cook on repeat: ‘consensus’ and the scientists

Take note: 2 minutes further in the interview he repeats this statement!

The reason for this article is twofold: a remarkable article on a strange Dutch website and an atypical reaction under an earlier article of mine about ‘climate denier’ as badge of honor. I’ll start with the more important of the two: an article written by one Kim de Roder. Actually, not Roder’s discussion contribution itself,… Continue reading J.

‘Climate denier’ as a badge of honor

Take note: 2 minutes further in the interview he repeats this statement!

This , for me, short article builds on a longer TEXT I wrote nine months before: What is climate science? At the time I put quite a few hours of study into preparing that text. However, I had not yet formulated the title of this piece as a conclusion. Among other things, I went through… Continue reading ‘Climate denier’ as a badge of honor

What IS climate science?

Longer texts

The most read Dutch article on my Academia account has a somewhat suggestive title. At this site you find the English translation of it: Real Science and Climate Science [1]. It did not explicitly address the question from the title of this article. Is climate science a real existing branch of (serious) scientific practice?That I… Continue reading What IS climate science?

Meanwhile above the Netherlands

Artificial island IJsseloog in Ketelmeer: part of the IJsselmeer. ‘Meer’=lake. Until 1932 the lake was sea (‘Zuiderzee’).

In this century (also in my lifetime) I returned by airplaine to the Netherlands 11 times. Never before have I had such a beautiful view during the landing. And not only has this photo turned out exceptionally well as a picture (thanks to the sunset and the clouds), there is also a lot of interesting… Continue reading Meanwhile above the Netherlands

The suffering of the climate prophet. And lead outweighs CO2

Stephen Schneider

When considering running for a seat in the Provincial Council I started reading the complete IPCC report, however, I got stuck on page XI. The Synthesis Report 2014 turned out to be officially dedicated to Mr. Stephen Schneider, who -for that reason- can be called climate prophet. I use that term climate prophet for the… Continue reading The suffering of the climate prophet. And lead outweighs CO2

Real science and climate science

Longer texts

The possibilities and limitations of science have occupied me for a very long time. 44 years ago I wrote a paper for the course science theory, for which I received high grades. The main reason for this was undoubtedly that I had partly based it on the book Personal Knowledge by the genius, but not… Continue reading Real science and climate science

Rudi Dutschke’s mind blowing success

Nobody laughed
Civil servants vs politicians

Political commenting while ironing. No shirt was ruined while making this video. Three years ago I wrote a text about Dutschke in Dutch on the website VerenOfLood.nu. In a note below an explanation of my vote. I repeat the complete note here for a reason: Superficially the hero of many radical world reformers, Rudi Dutschke… Continue reading Rudi Dutschke’s mind blowing success
