DR ROBERT FAGAN

Dr Fagan has been a geologist for over 40 years, and most recently, twenty years lecturing in all aspects of geology in the Department of Mineral Exploration and Mining Geology at the Western Australian School of Mines in Kalgoorlie, a division of Curtin University. Dr Fagan has a PhD in geology and geochemistry and has a solid background in the geology of most parts of Australia and New Zealand and is the author of numerous technical papers, articles, and books (including a first year university digital textbook in geology, "Understanding Geology"  available for digital download  via he website:  https://www.understanding-geology.com.  Dr Fagan has also run extensive courses on various aspects of geology, geochemistry and exploration geoscience.  

Dr Fagan developed a particular professional scientific interest in the Earth's climate history and climate science in the early 1990's as a result of preparing environmental geology, earth history, global tectonics and tectonophysics courses at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. The history of the Earth's climate over all of geological time is well understood in geology but seems to have been completely ignored in the climate sciences other than for the very recent Pleistocene glacial period, from which we are still emerging.  It seems only a matter of time before a much wider acceptance of the Earth's complete climate history, particularly in the climate sciences, completely demolishes the prevailing view of climate change, warming, and the role of atmospheric CO2 in climate processes.  

The purpose of the web site is to summarize some of the scientific background, evidence, and supporting argument for countering the present catastrophist view of both global warming, and atmospheric CO2.

The evidence from the geological past, right up to the present, indicates that mild global warming is happening, with temperatures returning to the longer-term global normal, slightly warmer equilibrium condition that existed throughout nearly all of geological time, almost right up to the present, offering no existential threat,  requiring no intervention by man, and not involving any significant contribution from atmospheric CO2.

Climate science has failed to understand and fix the problem of climate change because there is no problem. Modeling, diagnosing, theorizing, explaining or fixing  a problem does not work when there is no problem in the first place. That climate science does not understand that there is no climate problem is the real concern. How do we know there is no problem? Because the geological temperature and CO2 evidence recorded in the rock and ice record over the last million of years is very clear. It shows warming is cyclical (at least a dozen repeated cycles), is unrelated to atmospheric CO2,  and non-threatening, reflecting normal inter-glacial warming behaviour. Even well before recent times the Earth's climate and atmospheric history going back billions of years (outside of occasional glacial episodes) is one of stability and regularity, non-threatening and slightly warmer than the present inter-glacial conditions throughout.

To print from this web site, use "Ctrl + P" to see how  the printed version will look. Experience has shown that printing to PDF, and then saving and printing the PDF file may work best. Also selecting "Portrait" or ""Landscape" may give a better result for some pages. You will need to print and save  each of the main Web Sections separately. Also copying and printing into Word, and then printing from Word may be a simpler and preferred alternative.  There should be about 20 pages of printed information in total.
