We are a group of almost 20 Connecticut residents representing the fields of meteorology, climatology, physical science, engineering and public policy. We are deeply concerned about the flawed or non-existant scientific basis for reducing emissions of “greenhouse gases,” such as carbon dioxide, as a means of controlling global temperatures. We are volunteers, and do not represent any public or private groups nor do we receive any compensation from any such organizations or agencies.

This blog represents a way to present our views to the general public.  We have been denied the ability to publish opinions and responses to articles in the local newspapers such as the Hartford Courant.

As each of us has our own areas of expertise and we are a consortium, the contents of the blog will vary.  The topics will range from detailed analyses of the thermodynamic properties of CO2, to weather and climate to policy and the EPA.  All comments are welcome as long as they are constructive – threats or trolling will not be tolerated.

    Would retired weatherman James MacDonald happen to be part of this group? I wound up at a public meeting in New Haven in January and gave a pretty lame defense of global warming science; I also made some comments I’m not proud of uttering.

    I’m seeking him out because I mentioned, briefly, discussing this further with him, but never pursued it. I’m wondering if he’d be interested in continuing the conversation in some, and hopefully much more friendly, capacity.

      Ijust got back from the 4th International Conference on Climate Change in Chicago.
      78 top scientists gave presentations. Total attendance was close to 1000.

      I’d be happy to enter into a discussion with you.

        Hi James,

        I’d be happy to begin a conversation, but is this an appropriate place? It looks like we’re on the front page of this blog. How should we conduct it?
