From Mars Rover: Panorama Above ‘Perseverance Valley’

This June 2017 view from the Pancam on NASA’s Opportunity Mars rover shows the area just above “Perseverance Valley” on a large crater’s rim. A broad notch in the crest of the rim, at right, might have been a spillway for a fluid that carved the valley, out of sight on the other side of […]

DELINGPOLE: ‘Nearly All’ Recent Global Warming Is Fabricated, Study Finds

DELINGPOLE: ‘Nearly All’ Recent Global Warming Is Fabricated, Study Finds

by JAMES DELINGPOLE Much of recent global warming has been fabricated by climate scientists to make it look more frightening, a study has found. The peer-reviewed study by two scientists and a veteran statistician looked at the global average temperature datasets (GAST) which are used by climate alarmists to argue that recent years have been “the hottest evah” and that the warming […]
