Naomi Oreskes' Denial Of Non-Consensus: A Look At A Failed Historian

My how the times have changed. Climategate, and all the other gates surrounding it, have turned things inside-out. The science is far from settled, as many of us have long suspected. The ranks of sceptic scientists are swelling, public opinion has swung; even the Royal Society has adopted a new position on climate science –  by George, there […]

German FOCUS Magazine: Warm Times Will Soon Be Over!

The prominent German online news magazine  FOCUS  reports that 2010 may set a new NASA high temperature record. The cause of the recent warmth is El Nino. But FOCUS then throws ice-cold water on any warmist dream of an overheating planet, at least for the next few years, and writes that scientists believe: “Womöglich aber sind die warmen Zeiten für unseren Globus bald vorüber”. In English: […]

Adios El Nino

The equatorial Pacific is now showing a distinct band of cool surface water developing. Many forecasters have already written the obituary for the now departing El Nino, which pushed global surface temperatures up by some 0.8°C over the last few months. Source: The newly developing La Nina will probably erase much of that in […]

Casus Belli – Suspend Democracy!

Here’s another excellent post by Eduardo Zorita at the Klimazwiebel. In this BBC podcast (takes a minute or so to load), the view of green elitists is that we have casus belli. Thus democracy has to be suspended and common sense authoritarianism has to take over – just for a while, until things are put back in their […]

As Governments Bedwet Over AGW, World Faces Potential Food Catastrophe

      While world governments bedwet over a fantasized climate catastrophe taking place 100 years out, mankind could be facing a potential catastrophic food shortage. A worthhile read (see link below).       The disease is Ug99, a virulent strain of black stem rust fungus (Puccinia graminis), discovered in Uganda in 1999, threatens the world’s wheat supply.

German Industry Says: Take A Break!

The online German Der Spiegel reported yesterday here that the EU Commission wants to accelerate cuts in CO2 emissions, but industry and government officials are saying “no!”. With economies gripped by hardship and overall growing public scepticism (see here), calls for even more draconian measures to curb CO2 emissions are ringing hollow. German Minister of Economics Rainer Bruederle […]

Pachauri And The Chicago Climate Exchange

Pachauri CCX advisory board member EIKE, the European Institute for Climate and Energy, a sponsor of the 4th ICCC in Chicago, has dug up a some information on the Chicago Climate Exchange CCX, where Maurice Strong and a host of other influential leftists are among its board members. When it comes to cap & trade, i.e. […]

Mammoth Junk Science

Many news outlets have reported today that humans hunted and killed off the large methane-emitting mammoths 13,000 years ago, thus causing global cooling. This report has been published in Nature by some University of New Mexico scientists. Again man, armed with nothing but spears and arrows, may have been the culprit in significant climate change. Read […]

Action Hero Lewis Gordon Pugh

Faster than a speeding bullet…more powerful than a locomotive…able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! Look, it’s a bird! No it’s a plane! It’s Super-Pugh! When evil threatens the planet Earth, then it’s Super Pugh to the rescue. Now Super Pugh is in Nepal, where he just completed a 1 km swim across […]

Gate Blowup! Come On In Gate Lovers!

 UPDATED LIST:   !! CLICK HERE !! What follows is only the first orignal list of climate gates, click above for the newest list. Climate science has produced an entire warehouse full of scandals. In fact the scandals are in such big supply that you can now get them at the House of Climate Science for a dime a dozen. […]

77 Non-Anonymous Sceptical German Scientists

77 German scientists have signed an open letter to Chancellor Angela Merkel casting their doubt on the hypothesis of manmade CO2 emissions causing considerable global warming. The letter, drafted in 2009 by EIKE, continues today to gather signatures from scientists in Germany. Here is the German Letter with signatures, and here’s the English translation. The open letter states: …humans […]

Accelerating Global Erosion Consensus Smashed – Artifact Of Observation

The consensus was that global erosion of mountains and the Earth’s surface had been accelerating over the last 5 million years. Well, guess what? This once long accepted hypothesis has just been smashed by researchers at the GeoForschungsZentrum in Potsdam Germany. They present their results in the May 13 issue of Nature.  GFZ Potsdam (click English […]

4th ICCC - Is it Worth It?

4th ICCC – Is it Worth It?

The Conference has begun – I’ll get right to the points. 1) How’s the mood going to be over there? Like a funeral? LOL! Yeah, like dancing on the grave of your most bitter and hated enemy. I wish I could be there. It goes without saying, the mood will be festive, buoyant, and giddy. […]

Schellnhuber: Now Scepticism Is Anti-Science!

Things have really gotten desperate for the CAGWists also here in Germany. That’s what a little Climategate and Germany’s coldest winter in 46 years can do to a junk-science theory. Dirk Maxeiner brings up a piece appearing in the German online Frankfurter Rundschau titled: Campaign of Lies McCarthy Style Click here! The piece describes how more than 250 scientists, among […]

Heads Up - Coming: AWI Climate Reconstruction 400,000 to 4 Million Years Ago

Heads Up – Coming: AWI Climate Reconstruction 400,000 to 4 Million Years Ago

The Polarstern ice breaker of the government-funded Alfred Wegener Institute is now returning from a 7-month long expedition to the Antarctic, putting 37,000 nautical miles behind it. A total of 150 scientists from 15 countries have taken part in the Antarctic research expedition. here Onboard in the ship’s cargo bays are 1000 meters of sediment […]

The Green Movement’s Death-Farms

Thanks to reader ThomasJ, who provided this link to a Norwegian documentary about bird-killing windfarms. It might take a few moments to load. And although the clip is in Norwegian, the pictures themselves tell the story. The Norwegian windfarms are turning once majestic landscapes into a nightmare. I’m also amazed at the number of websites, blogs, […]

$310 Million For Temperature Reduction Of 0.000005°C – Protest

Michael Krüger of Readers Edition has a post on Germany’s first offshore Alpha Ventus windpark located in the North Sea, 30 miles from shore. Alpha Ventus has 12 5-MW wind generators. The electricity will have to cost 7 – 8  US-cents per kwh just to cover the construction costs. That’s about the price electricty is […]

Global Warming Is Off The Radar!

Earth to Gore! Earth to Gore! Do you read? I remember seeing Gallup polls listing Global Warming and Environment separately, and almost always near the bottom on the list of concerns. But I don’t ever recall GW being relegated to obscurity – but maybe I’m wrong here. Anyway the “climate crisis”, as Gore likes to call it, […]
