On episode 104 of The Climate Realism Show, we explain that to save the whales we need to kill these growing large-scale offshore wind projects.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the field of climate change. He now refers to himself as "earth science professor in exile." Recently he has written about why "global average temperature," is a poor metric for climate chan...
