Dear Climate Realists,
Thanks to the many readers, contributors, and activists during the past 5 years, the term "Climate Realist" has maintained an influence against supporters, institutions and Governments who promote the political driven alarmist view of AGW.
The Climate Realists stance against AGW has become even more clear during 2013, in that, AGW alarmists can no longer depend on the misuse of statistical Temperature data as the world has NOT warmed in the way that was forecast by computer models. All these institutions have left to do this year, is to try and state that major weather events have been caused by AGW, a prime example of this was last year's political spin about Hurricane Sandy!
There has never been any denial from this side of the fence that the level of CO2 has continued to increase, it has done so for over 250-300 years and that's simply because the world has warmed after the last little ice age. But what seems to be confusing many AGW supporters is that the Earth's temperature has not only remained at a semi-static rate for the past 15-16 years but there are very clear signs that the world is now cooling.
We have more than 50,000 unique visitors coming to our site every month and the total number of pages read last year exceeded 20,000,000 (20 Million). That was a direct result of nearly 10,000 article postings in the past 5 years, each of these posting are listed/indexed by authors name or topic on the left-hand side bar.
Here’s the problem. The articles and links that are posted at ClimateRealists.com are free for everyone to use. That’s not only a good thing for all of the readers its also a very good thing to promote other peoples work in support of what we do. But on the down side it makes it hard for us to manage the day to day work loads and continue to grow at the same time.
It goes without saying it’s pretty hard to run a free website and to cover the many costs such as server hosting, rent, IT support, etc. In an ideal world If every Climate Realist could donate at least $2 each month, there would be no need for this sort of request asking for your help, but that's not going to happen.
To achieve our target of funding this we need your financial support, each person that makes a donation, no matter how big or small, will be listed onto the "Climate Realist" left hand index side bar. We like to think that by showing your name, or even a friends name as a "Climate Realist" it would inspire you to make a donation.
With your help during 2013 we will update the site and server and be able to pay for regular IT support so we can continue to put out the "Climate Realists" side of the Climate argument to even more people
We have readers in every part of the world helping spread the word, and we must find a way to educate and motivate people to argue the point that AGW is entirely politically driven.
AGW is NOT based on scientific observations from the real world it is based using the forecast results from computer models.
These computers show the results of co2 being the "cause" of warming. However in real world observations co2 is the result of the warming and NOT THE DRIVER.
The politics behind the "official" climate science is very poor and MUST change.
To achieve our goal we need to make a bigger and better site to reach even more people and we need your support to achieve this.
Please go to the top Right Hand Corner of the Site and click the Donate button and make your donation not only to keep the site going and but also help invest in the site's future, no matter how big or small, your contribution helps the cause.
Many thanks for the support
