Climate nonsense will lead to this trend in energy prices.

Ultra-High Electric Bills for 0.0072°C Less Warming

German journalist Günter Ederer has a piece at the online Fuldaer Zeitung called The Electricity Bill Is Going Up And Up. Hat-tip Detmar Doering. Politicians in all parties in Germany, from the communists to the conservatives, and everything in between, are all racing to be the first to jump off the let’s-save-the-climate cliff. All have […]

Austrian Der Standard: No Chance For US Climate Bill – Blames “Unprecedented Propaganda Machine”

What is Europe to do? The old continent wants to save the world but it seems no one wants to play along. Before the summer, there seemed to be some hope the USA could pass a climate rescue bill with President Barack Obama and the Democrat-held Congress. But that hope has all but completely disappeared. So writes the […]

South Pole Ice Fluctuations Controlled by ENSO

Whatever happened to CO2 driving the climate and causing melting of the ice caps? So now we have to use the ENSO as a barometer for ice melt (or freezing), sea level rise and climate variation? It is certainly a hell of a lot more plausible, that’s for sure. ——————————————————————————– Press Release from the GFZ Potsdam Gravity […]

Proxies from all over the world confirm fluctuations on a global scale.

Stefan Rahmstorf, Michael Mann – Are They Climate Paranoid?

  Is paranoia contagious? It seems so in certain circles. Like fear, it begins with one, and then spreads like wildfire. Yesterday I wrote about Professor Stefan Rahmstorf’s hissing and fitting reaction to a piece written by EIKE, the humble sceptic organisation that had the audacity to bring up one of Rahmstorf’s old, yet embarrassing […]

Rahmstorf Retorts – Says Past Warmth Was “Northern Hemisphere”

We want to be fair, and so I’m obligated to inform readers that Professor Stefan Rahmstorf, has testily replied to EIKE’s report, which I wrote about just 2 days ago. Rahmstorf retorts at his website: Headlines From Absurdistan here. First, recall that Rahmstorf is that alarmist scientist who projects an oddball sea level rise of 1.4 meters […]

Today’s Climate Horoscope – By Paul O’Gorman and MIT

I’ve just read the latest climate horoscope at the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung website, which delivers them almost daily. The latest one comes from the fortune tellers and scryers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, led by psychic Paul O’Gorman, now available at the PNAS here. The latest horoscope foretells that (later) in the 21st century, summers will […]

You Want Me to Believe What?

Guest writer Ed Caryl, author of One Of Our Hemispheres Is Missing and A Light In Siberia, now brings us his latest essay. ——————————————————————————————————————– You Want Me To Believe What? By Ed Caryl The proponents of Anthropogenic Global Warming claim that man’s use of fossil fuels has released extra carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and […]

Rahmstorf/Schellnhuber Confirm No Anthropogenic Climate Change!

Rahmstorf/Schellnhuber Confirm No Anthropogenic Climate Change!

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it. – Omar Khayyám Scratch off the Potsdam Institute For Climate Impact Research from the alarmist list. No kidding! The European Institute For […]

International Skepticism Is Growing – Skeptics Are Well-Informed

The Science Skeptical Blog here has released some fascinating results from Hans von Storch’s Klimazwiebel blogsite’s survey here. Although the survey is not representative, 578 valid participants from 28 countries took part and interesting results have been produced. Here are the most interesting results: 1. Climate science skeptics have been involved in the topic for a […]

Huge Global Precipitation Deficits Due To Woefully Inaccurate Measurement Techniques!

German Weather Service meteorologist Christoph Hartmann writes what I think is a surprising essay on measuring precipitation, and the errors in doing so. Indeed Hartmann says precipitation may be understated by up to 50%, or much more at some locations. As Hartmann explains, measuring precipitation is by no means an exact science, and results have […]

Freshwater Consumption Causing Oceans To Overflow

A Swiss report appearing at www.20min.ch claims that the extraction of groundwater for communities and agriculture is adding massively to global sea level rise. According to a yet to be published paper by the America Geophysical Union, 2000 cubic km of freshwater are consumed yearly – with 1500 cubic km coming from lakes, ponds, rivers […]

Gore’s Joke

The Portuguese sceptic site Ecotretas has a piece today called Not so fine Mr Gore which features a video clip of Al Gore making a speech before a crowd, predominantly businessmen. Gore seems to think that Portugal’s economy is on the right track and is coming out of recession. Far from it. In fact, Portugal’s economic woes are worsened […]

Growing German Dissent On Climate Science

Slowly, but surely, more and more people in Germany are speaking up against the hoax that is man-made global warming. Websites and blogs are sprouting and scepticism is spreading. The old, established narrative is now being seriously challenged. The latest example is a piece written by Ronald Gläser in the online news and commentary magazine called eigentümlich […]

Cold Weather Silences The Climate Media

A couple a days ago I reported on how the German media has hardly been reporting on global warming. Read here. That should be no surprise because it’s been cold in Germany over the last 3 months, and so reporting on warming planet would only draw chuckles from the public. After all, August was cool […]

Light Blogging

My wife and I are spending a few days at the Baltic Sea near Kiel, and so blogging will be a little on the light side. I wanted to do some deepsea fishing yesterday, but the boats didn’t go out – not enough customers. They plan to go out tomorrow. Hopefully I can land that […]

Public interest in climate protection continues to drop in Germany

Public Interest In Climate Protection Wanes (Again!) in Germany – Rahmstorf Whines

Despite all the media über-hype about this year’s “weather extremes”, which are normal to begin with, and the upcoming Cancun Conference, the German index of public interest on climate protection fell yet again during the 3rd quarter of 2010, from 56 to 55, according to the co2online GmbH, a program set up by the German Ministry […]

Race Against The Climate Apocalypse – Just In Time For Christmas

If you don’t know what to buy the kids for Christmas, then here’s just the thing: computer game The New Beginning. It’s the latest from Daedalic Entertainment, from German game producer gamecity-hamburg.de, see trailer (Sorry, only in German). It’s the latest for teaching German kids the end of the world is coming, unless…! It’s the year 2500 and what’s left […]

Wind-Park Proponents Advocate Suspending Democracy

Over at Sweden’s sceptic The Climate Scam, Jonny Fagerström writes how pro-wind-park organisation Swedish Wind Energy is lobbying to abolish the municipal veto in order to bypass public refusal of windparks. The public, whose landscape would be ruined, should not be allowed to have a say on whether or not a wind-park is to be installed […]

Physicist Georg Hoffmann – Symbol Of Science Hubris and Intolerance. Germany’s Academic Disgrace

Here’s an example of what dissenting opinions have to face here in what was once called the land of poets and thinkers. (In climate science Germany is more the land of dogmatists and intolerants, unfortunately. But as I’ve said, that’s slowly changing). Yesterday I posted a piece “Climate Science” Now Questioned At German Universities about Professor […]

Der Wettermann – Leading German Meteorologist Blasts “Climate Science”

Germany has yet another sceptic website, published by meteorologist Dr Wolfgang Thuene called Der Wettermann. I’ll be keeping an eye on it and reporting on interesting posts that will undoubtedly pop up. I’ve added his site to my blogroll.h/t NTZ reader: Bernd Felsche. There are many sceptics in Germany. The problem is that the mainstream media […]
