Dr. Tim Ball: The Lie that Just Won't Die

The deathless and - in many specific respects - completely fictional meanderings of Dr. Tim Ball have begun appearing again on right-wing blogs all over the net. At City Troll, at Convenient Untruth and at New Orleans Lady, the same tired and retreaded old climate rant paints Dr. Ball as the courageous victim of a plot to silence a well-meaning skeptic.

But Ball can’t even tell the truth about his own resume. His claim to be the first Climatology Ph.D. in Canada is a total falsehood; his degree was in historical geography - not climatology - and it was nowhere near the first ever granted to someone writing vaguely in the field. It also was granted by the university as a doctor of philosophy, not the more prestigious “doctor of science” that Ball claims in these articles.

UPDATE: to make matters worse, it looks like Ball’s “global warming is good for us” message is running front page in the right-wing uber site, The Drudge Report.

He claims as well to have been a professor (again of climatology) at the University of Winnipeg for 32 years, while he confirmed in his own Statement of Claim in a pending lawsuit (look here ) that he was a professor (of geography, never climatology) for just eight years.

Dr. Ball claims never to have been paid by oil and gas interests, but if you look here , you’ll find a Globe and Mail story in which Dr. Barry Cooper, the man behind Ball’s former industry front group, the Friends of Science , offers this clumsy admission: “[The money’s] not exclusively from the oil and gas industry,” says Prof. Cooper. “It’s also from foundations and individuals. I can’t tell you the names of those companies, or the foundations for that matter, or the individuals.”

Here you’ll find a podcast of Dr. Ball talking to the Ottawa Citizen , saying that he goes out of his way to ignore who might be paying his bills, but crediting the energy industry lobby firm, the High Park Group . And here, you’ll find High Park Group veteran Tom Harris, telling the Toronto Star that his new industry front group, the Natural Resources Stewardship Project , was created at the suggestion of High Park Group president Timothy Egan.

Tom Harris, executive director of the NRSP, is credited by New Orleans Lady for passing along this version of the Ball tirade, also printed Monday on the right-wingy website, Canada Free Press. Yet all of these factual inconsistencies have been brought to Harris’s attention on previous occasions.

It is inevitable that this post will be criticized as an ad hominem attack on dear Dr. Ball (and perhaps on Harris, as well). But how can you argue science with someone who doesn’t feel bound by the limits of truth?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has just endured an unprecedented process of vetting and peer-review to produce a document, the veracity of which has been double-checked and endorsed by thousands of the best scientists in the world. It must be soul-destroying to see a long-retired geographer who rarely published during his colourless academic career and who never conducted any research in atmospheric science dismiss that effort without a shred of evidence or a hint of good conscience

Ball also seems to be a creationist of some sort. In an op-ed in Canada Free Press, he wrote:

“”Even though it is still just a theory and not a law 148 years after it was first proposed, Darwinian evolution is the only view allowed in schools. Why? Such censorship suggests fear of other ideas, a measure of indefensibility.[9]

On his website, he attacks Richard Dawkins and claims science, evolution, and environmentalism are religions. He also believes that the Bible's predictions have been just as verified as those made by science:


“”Perhaps the ultimate irony[10] is that the biblical views on nature, human roles and responsibilities are as logical as any other including modern environmentalism.[11]

When you take his global warming denialism together with creationism and his admiration for Immanuel Velikovsky,[12] there's clear evidence for crank magnetism.

This is the type of Dung deniailist use as evidense to argue thier point,
Alt Right. fills another vacum.
Trump and his band of fascist are on and enjoy A FACT FREE DIET that is clear
Jennifer Do you feel you might have been missled by Professor Ball?
Got any real science that says 91 million barrels a day, An Olmpic size swiming pool burned every 15 seconds in not fouling our nest mother Earth?
Denaiist may have cost us the last chance to turn this soot stained world around.
Coal in your stocking! One giant step foward two right wing turns backward

All that freakin fuel burned every 24hours in a very limited atmospher.
These folks must not be able to fathom our limited atmospher, thinking its enless maybe???
Sure is proof to me that a large group of people today HAVE SURENDERD THEIR

Jennifer what do you think of Tom Harris?
Is he an embarrassment or would you quote him?
just wondering after your quoted Tim Ball.
Maybe people should check to see if claimed degrees from univeritys are real?
Tim Ball is one big counterfit do you see that now?

Another propagandist spreading disinformation Tom Harris
I think you should check the sorce first as a safe guard against Deception and out right lies. I say again denialist may have cost us our only chance to counter Global warming threat to planet, Decades of critical time wasted, thanks to denilism.

Bogus climate course “a source of embarrassment to the institution”

An energy industry public relations man and lobbyist with no background in climate science has infiltrated Carleton University in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, teaching a course on climate change denial that other Carleton professors describe as “a source of embarrassment to the institution.”

Tom Harris, who originally trained as a mechanical engineer, has been a strategist for the climate change denial industry for at least a decade. A favourite presenter misrepresented as a PhD at the Heartland Institute’s regular climate change denial conferences, Harris has worked directly for companies like the international PR giant APCO Worldwide or for energy industry lobby firms such as Toronto’s High Park Group. More recently, he has launched or led at least three phony “grassroots organizations” – energy industry front groups that promote confusion or denial in climate science.

John Rose quotes Don Easterbrook in posting- Gloabal warming Is A Blatant Lie
Here you can see who Don Easterbrook is. Follow the money!
Also also you can go above and see who The proffesor Tim Ball realy is.
Both of these conterfits have been quoted by Denialist on this site.

Don Easterbrook

Credentials
•Ph.D., Geology. [1]

Background

Don Easterbrook is a Professor Emeritus of Glacial Geology and Environmental and Engineering Geology at Western Washington University. [28]

Don Easterbrook is the editor of Evidence-Based Climate Science, a book which claims to produce data that is “counter-global-warming evidence not embraced by proponents of CO2.” The book (PDF) includes work by Easterbrook himself, and a range of noted climate change deniers including Steve Goddard, Joseph D’Aleo, Nils-Axel Mörner, David Archibald, Nicola Scafetta, Christopher Monckton, and others. [29], [33]

Easterbrook is a regular speaker at the Heartland Institute's International Conference on Climate Change. The Heartland Institute and its conference sponsors have collectively received millions of dollars in funding from the fossil fuel industry. [30]

In 2013, Easterbrook argued before the Washington State Senate Committee on Climate Change that peer-reviewed data showing global warming had been “tampered with by NOAA and NASA.” In the same presentation, he also said that ”CO2 cannot possibly cause global warming,” and that “Global warming ended in 1998.” [40]

Stance on Climate Change

March 26, 2013
•“Global warming ended in 1998. […] There has been no global warming in 15 years.” [40]
•“The Antarctic ice sheet is not melting […] the main ice sheet is in fact growing. […] ” [40]
•“CO2 cannot possibly cause global warming.” [40]
•“Severe storms are not more frequent than normal.” [40]
•“We're in for about 25 - 30 years of global cooling.” [40]

May, 2008


“We are entering a solar cycle of much reduced sunspots, very similar to that which accompanied the change from the Medieval Warm Period to the Little Ice Age, which virtually all scientists agree was caused by solar variation. Thus, we seem to be headed for cooler temperatures as a result of reduced solar irradiance.” [2]

Key Quotes

May, 2016

Speaking to a crowd at The Kitsap Patriots Tea Party, Easterbrook says the Paris Climate treaty, which he adds “doesn't have any power at all,” intends to “establish a global socialistic government run by the UN with no elections or accountability.” [38]


“I used to believe in apple pie and motherhood and NOAA and NASA. These were all the things that were pure and good. Now I just believe in apple pie and motherhood,” Easterbrook said. “There is this massive fraudulent corruption of data by NOAA and NASA.”

July, 2015

Don Easterbrook describes the Heartland Institute's International Conference on Climate Change as “my people,” and that speaking at the event will bel like “preaching to the choir.” [39]



July 18, 2014

Don Easterbrook gave Marc Morano's Climate Depot an “exclusive […] point-by-point rebuttal to the new NOAA climate report.” Easterbrooks claimed included the following: [32]


”[…] CO2 levels for the past 500 million years were consistently greater than 3,000 ppm. 400ppm is abnormally low.” [32]

“If you double nothing (0.004%), you still have nothing!” [32]

“[R]ates of sea level rise have declined slightly and are about 1.7 mmyr. Sea level has been rising at a relatively constant rate of only ~7 inches per century–that’s 3 1/2 inches in the next 50 years. [32]

Responding to the NOAA's statement that most parts of the planet had experienced above-average temperatures in 2013, Easterbrook said they had reached this “only by massive tampering with temp records.” [32]

July, 2014


“I am continuing to predict global cooling for the next couple of decades at least.” [6]

March 26, 2013


“In God we trust. All others bring data.” [40]

October, 2006


“If the cycles continue as in the past, the current warm cycle should end soon and global temperatures should cool slightly until about 2035, then warm about 0.5°C from ~2035 to ~2065, and cool slightly until 2100. The total increase in global warming for the century should be ~0.3 °C, rather than the catastrophic warming of 3-6°C (4-11°F) predicted by the IPCC.” [3]

Key Deeds

March 23, 2017

Easterbrook spoke at the Heartland Institute's 12th International Conference on Cimate Change (ICCC12) on “Panel 1B: Climate Science.” [43]



February 23, 2017

Don Easterbrook was a signatory of a petition (PDF) organized by Richard Lindzen of the Cato Institute urging President Donald Trump to pull the United States out of the United Nations international convention on climate change (UNFCCC). [41]


“In just a few weeks, more than 300 eminent scientists and other qualified individuals from around the world have signed the petition below,” Lindzen wrote in the letter. [41]

DeSmog investigated the list, and found that only a small handful of the signatories could be considered “even remotely ‘qualified’ or ‘eminent’ — but not in the field of climate science.” The list included individuals “interested in climate,” and one signatory who only identified as an “emailer who wished to sign the petition” while some signers provided no affiliation or address whatsoever. [42]

August, 2016

Don Easterbrook is listed as a “Founding Member” of group named Climate Exit (Clexit) led by climate change denier Christopher Monckton. According to Clexit's founding statement (PDF), “The world must abandon this suicidal Global Warming crusade. Man does not and cannot control the climate.” [21], [22]

Desmog reports on how the group grew in the wake of the UK's decision to leave the EU. A key member of Clexit's “60 well-informed science, business and economic leaders” is Hugh Morgan, a former board member of the Reserve Bank of Australia and former CEO of Western Mining Corporation with close ties to Australia's Liberal party. [23], [24]

According to Clexit's founding statement:


“If the Paris climate accord is ratified, or enforced locally by compliant governments, it will strangle the leading economies of the world with pointless carbon taxes and costly climate and energy policies, all with no sound basis in evidence or science […]” [22]

May 7, 2016

Don Easterbrook was the keynote speaker at an event hosted by the Kitsap Patriots Tea Party and Silverdale-Seabeck Republican Women titled “Exposing the Climate Change Myth.” Video below: [37]



May 2, 2016

Don Easterbrook was listed among “Key Scientists” appearing in Marc Morano's movie, Climate Hustle. The full list included the following: [4]
•Robert Giegengack
•Judith Curry
•Richard Tol
•Caleb Rossiter
•Ivar Giaever
•Roy Spencer
•Daniel B. Botkin
•Patrick Moore
•Don J. Easterbrook
•Robert M. Carter
•John Theon
•Dennis Rancourt
•William M. Briggs
•Roger Pielke Sr.
•Walter Cunningham
•Patrick J. Michaels
•Lord Christopher Monckton
•Anthony Watts
•Leighton Steward
•Philip Stott
•Will Happer

Marc Morano's Climate Hustle was released in U.S. theatres on May 2, 2016. Bill Nye described it as “not in our national interest and the world’s interest.” [13]

The film was produced by the Committee for Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) and CDRCommunications. As noted at Desmog's project, ClimateHustler.org, CFACT has received funding from ExxonMobil, Chevron, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars from foundations associated with Richard Mellon Scaife. CFACT has also received at least $7.8 million in “dark money” through DonorsTrust and Donors Capital Fund. [14], [15]

CDR Communications was behind the 2010 video by the Cornwall Alliance titled Resisting the Green Dragon, which claimed environmentalism was a “false religion” and a “global government” power grab. Chris Rogers of CDR Communictions is also chairman of The James Partnership, the umbrella arm that includes the Cornwall Alliance as one of its projects and pays the salary of Calvin Beisner, Cornwall’s founder and spokesperson. [16]

Climate Hustle initially premiered on December 7, 2015 in Paris, France during the COP21 United Nations summit on climate change. [17], [18]


“We are putting together what I think is the most comprehensive, unique, entertaining and humorous climate documentary that has ever been done or attempted,” Morano had said before the film was released. [19]


“The reason that this is a unique film,” Morano has said, “is that we are going for a pop culture-friendly… sarcastic approach and we actually give both sides in this movie.”

In an interview with Ezra Levant, Morano said:


“I am not interviewing a lot of the main climate sceptical scientists because I feel like they have been interviewed by many other people and their stories have been told. I am trying to find another layer of scientist whose stories have not been out there yet. You will see a lot of new names in this.” [19]

See a preview of the film below:



At the Paris premier of the film, reporters from Desmog and the Irish Times were denied entrance after having their RSVPs accepted days earlier. [20]

December 7, 2015

Don Easterbrook appears as a “Key Scientist” in Marc Morano’s documentary film, Climate Hustle, which debuted on December 7, 2015, in Paris, France during the COP21 United Nations summit on climate change. The film chiefly showcases Morano's personality, a range of discredited scientists, and no new factual information about climate change. [4]

Other notable “Key Scientists” featured in Climate Hustle include: [4]

Don Easterbrook gave Marc Morano's Climate Depot an “exclusive […] point-by-point rebuttal to the new NOAA climate report.” Easterbrook's list itself features a number of claims, that themselves have been debunked by scientists at Skeptical Science. [31], [32]

July 7 - 9, 2014

Don Easterbrook was a speaker at the Heartland Institute’s Ninth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC9) in Las Vegas, Nevada. [6]



DeSmogBlog has done in-depth research on the other speakers and sponsors from Heartland's ICCC9, which can be found here. [6]

March 26, 2013

Don Easterbrook made a presentation to the Washington State Senate Committee on Climate Change, attempting to provide evidence to counter the Senate Bill 5502. [40]



Don Easterbrook introduces himself as ”imply a geologist with 50 years of expertise and research in global climate change all over the world. I am a lifelong environmentalist. I am a scientist. I am not political. I don't have any particular bias towards either party, so I have no political agenda. I am not associated with or funded by any business group; I am not a shill for big oil, big coal, big anybody. All of my research has been funded by government agencies.” [40]

Easterbrook makes a number of assertions in his testimony, including: [40]
•“Global warming ended in 1998. […] There has been no global warming in 15 years.”
•“The Antarctic ice sheet is not melting […] the main ice sheet is in fact growing. […] ”
•“CO2 cannot possibly cause global warming.”
•“Severe storms are not more frequent than normal.”
•“You may be surprised to know the oceans are not acid.” (Clarifying this, Easterbrook responds to the question of whether ocean acidification exists with “no.”)

Easterbrook posits that NOAA and NASA manipulated the data to create a global warming trend:


“What about all the claims then that temperatures are warmer now than they have ever been?” Easterbrook asks. “These are patently not true. Those claims come from manipulation of data. […] The hottest year of record number one […] is 1936. Everybody has acknowledged 1936 was the warmest year of this century. Until NOAA and NASA begin to manipulate the old data and made it cooler, and elevated the recent temperatures and made them warmer.” [40]

When a panel member responds to Easterbrook's above statement, noting that peer-reviewed data runs contrary to what Easterbrook presented, Easterbrook responds that “what I'm showing you is the original data” while the widely-accepted peer-reviewed data “has been tampered with by NOAA and by NASA.”

May 21 - 23, 2012

Easterbrook was a speaker at the Heartland Institute's 7th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC7). [26]



DeSmogBlog researched the co-sponsors behind Heartland's ICCC7 and found that they had collectively received over $67 million from ExxonMobil, the Koch Brothers and the conservative Scaife family foundations. [27]

Skeptical Science reported on Easterbrook's global cooling presentation, and found that “Easterbrook had to distort the IPCC's actual model projections” in order to make his claims. Easterbrook had said: “In fact the IPCC predicted in the year 2000 that we would be experiencing 1 degree increase in temperature between the year 2000 and 2010.” [34]

Skeptical Science summarized Easterbrook's distortions as follows: [34]
•He chose a figure which represented model simulations of temperature responses only to greenhouse gas changes, which neglects for example the temperature response to the cooling effects of aerosols.
•He chose a single model run with an anomalous temperature spike in 2011.
•He only presented the data from 2000 to 2011, which concealed the fact that the temperature spike in 2011 was a short-term anomaly.
•He exaggerated his distorted IPCC temperature rise by a factor of two.

August 25, 2011

Don Easterbrook published “Evidence-Based Climate Science: Data Opposing CO2 Emissions as the Primary Source of Global Warming.” According to the publication's description at Elsevier: [29]


“Evidence-Based Climate Science: Data opposing CO2 emissions as the primary source of global warming objectively gathers and analyzes scientific data concerning patterns of past climate changes, influences of changes in ocean temperatures, the effect of solar variation on global climate, and the effect of CO2 on global climate to clearly and objectively present counter-global-warming evidence not embraced by proponents of CO2.” [29]

May 27, 2011

Don Easterbrook was one of fourteen Amici, described as “well-qualified climate scientists,” who claimed that the “EPA's endangerment finding is not 'rational' and therefore arbitrary and capricious.” [7]

According to the petitioners, representing the Coalition for Responsible Regulation, Inc.: [7]


“[T]he Earth's climate is not changing in an unusual or anomalous fashion. The EPA relied on instrumental data that were adjusted to exaggerate the increase in global temperatures.” [7]

Petitioners listed were:
•Timothy F. Ball
•Joseph S. D'Aleo
•Don J. Easterbrook
•Anthony Finizza
•William Happer
•Benjamin M. Herman
•Craig D. Idso
•Richard A. Keen
•Anthony R. Lupo
•Nicola Scafetta
•Roy W. Spencer
•George H. Taylor
•James P. Wallace III
•George T. Wolff

May, 2010

Don Easterbrook spoke at the Heartland Institute's Fourth International Conference on Climate Change on “The Looming Threat of Global Cooling”: [25]



March, 2009

Don Easterbrook spoke at the Heartland Institute's Second International Conference on Climate Change. His presentation was titled “'Global Warming' Is Over: Geologic, Oceanographic, and Solar Evidence for Global Cooling in the Coming Decades.” [8]



March, 2008

Easterbrook is listed as a signatory to the Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change which declares that global warming is “not a global crisis.” [9]

The Declaration was introduced at the Heartland Institute's 2008 International Conference on Climate Change in New York.

December, 2008

As reported a Watts Up With That (WUWT), Don Easterbrook presented at the American Geophysical Union annual meeting in San Francisco. His presentation was titled “Solar Influence on Recurring Global, Decadal, Climate Cycles Recorded by Glacial Fluctuations, Ice Cores, Sea Surface Temperatures, and Historic Measurements Over the Past Millennium.” [35]

Skeptical Science broke down Easterbrook's global cooling projections, and found “Easterbrook's predictions are based on assuming that correlation equals causation, and a few of the myths in our database including the top 2 most used 'skeptic' arguments - 'Climate's changed before', 'It's the sun', and 'It's Pacific Decadal Oscillation'. Easterbrook assumes that the cooling periods in the past might be repeated again in the future, presuming they were mainly caused by solar activity and PDO.” [36]


“He simply assumes that correlation equals causation and future climate change will be similar to past patterns. However, given that human greenhouse gas emissions are dominating current and future climate changes, ignoring this elephant in the room is the primary cause for Easterbrook's projection inaccuracy,” Skeptical Science concludes. [36]

Dec 20, 2007

Easterbrook's name appears on a Submission from the Lavoisier Group to the Garnaut Climate Change Review (PDF). [10]

March, 2007

Easterbrook was interviewed in a New York Times piece titled “From a Rapt Audience, a Call to Cool the Hype” where he is presented as a professor of Geology who “cited 'inaccuracies' in 'An Inconvenient Truth'.” The article mentions other climate change skeptics including Richard Lindzen, Bjørn Lomborg, Roy Spencer, and Benny J. Peiser. [11]

Easterbrook is described as having “no political axe to grind,” and as being a “rank-and-file” scientist, despite his skeptical views on global warming which put him at odds with the scientific majority. [12]

"Jennifer Do you feel you might have been missled by Professor Ball?

No, I don't. I feel I was misled by Al Gore, the Hockey stick guy Manning and all the other Global Warming Alarmists. And those who committed the temperature fraud.

Got any real science that says 91 million barrels a day, An Olmpic size swiming pool burned every 15 seconds in not fouling our nest mother Earth?

Of course it's fouling Mother Earth, but so are the Alarmists who fly around the world in their jets spreading Global Warming Alarm. The argument is not whether human activities are fouling Mother Earth, but whether CO2 causes global warming.

Sure is proof to me that a large group of people today HAVE SURENDERD THEIR COMMON SENSE

Yes, those who believe that what we tiny weeny people do down here on the ground can actually affect the temperature of the whole earth HAVE SURRENDERED THEIR COMMON SENSE.

Jennifer what do you think of Tom Harris?

Is he an embarrassment or would you quote him?

Maybe people should check to see if claimed degrees from univeritys are real?
Tim Ball is one big counterfit do you see that now?


I like Tom Harris just fine. Glad he's out there fighting the good fight for us instead of kowtowing to the libs.

I guess it do not matter whats in a mans resume, you whine about Liberals but offer no argument only support.
i will say this gain in response to your support of this counterfit Harris-

We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific fact,"

Tom Harris, who originally trained as a mechanical engineer, has been a strategist for the climate change denial industry for at least a decade. A favourite presenter misrepresented as a PhD at the Heartland Institute’s regular climate change denial conferences, Harris has worked directly for companies like the international PR giant APCO Worldwide or for energy industry lobby firms such as Toronto’s High Park Group. More recently, he has launched or led at least three phony “grassroots organizations” – energy industry front groups that promote confusion or denial in climate science.
