A prominent skeptic in the world of human caused climate change - Anthony Watts will speak on November 18th
The election has not yet occurred and we don’t know whether Mr. Biden’s New, New Green Deal will be thrust upon us or whether President Trump will be continuing his deregulation programs with the return of economic prosperity. Either way, Governor Newsom will proceed to eliminate fossil fuels as power sources for the state’s electric grid and think that renewables like wind and solar can keep the lights on and businesses going. He will continue to promise to put us all in electric cars as soon as he can in order to save the world from the threat of global warming. You can bet that our speaker has something important to say about California’s global warming goals.
Our keynote speaker Anthony Watts is a reality based climate skeptic. He is a senior fellow for environment and climate at The Heartland Institute. Watts has been in the weather business both in front of, and behind the camera as an on-air television meteorologist since 1978, and currently does daily radio forecasts. He has created weather graphics presentation systems for television, specialized weather instrumentation, as well as co-authored peer-reviewed papers on climate issues. He operates the most viewed website in the world on climate, the award-winning website www.wattsupwiththat.com .
Mr. Watts’ work on climate issues, specifically the problems with temperature measurements via his surfacestations.org website, has been cited worldwide in books, studies and government reports. When Watts started studying climate change, he began to discover that U.S. temperature data sets (which are thought to be the most reliable in the world) can't be trusted in part because the recording stations have been badly compromised. Watts organized a vast corps of volunteers to visit, photograph, and rate NOAA weather recording stations around the country. Long time NCRWF associate member, Russ Steele worked as one of those volunteers and evaluated more than 25 surface stations. Mr. Watts will dedicate his remarks to Russ’s memory.
Mr. Watts’ views on climate are pragmatic, believing that while indeed climate has changed in the last 100 years, it isn't a crisis, and that many of the predictions and pronouncements have been oversold to the public, as evidenced by the fact that many of them have not come true since first being made.

Candidate’s Corner - NCRWF invited the four Republican candidates running for seats on the Nevada County Board of Education to introduce themselves to our members at the out of doors meeting planned for September 16th. Due to smoky, unhealthy air quality the meeting was cancelled. As our members are keen to be informed on local issues, the candidates were invited to provide short statements for our website. Names were drawn to determine the order of these statements.
The mission of NCRWF is education. We do not endorse or oppose candidates.
