Study Shows Half Of Warming Since 1980 Due To Clear Skies

Hat-tip M White.Spaceweather.com has an excellent report today called: ALL-CLEAR IN THE STRATOSPHERE about volcanic aerosols and their impact on the earth’s climate and cooling. Turns out that they have a far greater impact than expected. Today the earth’s stratosphere is as clean as it’s been in more than 50 years. What does that mean? It means […]

2010 To Be Snowiest On Record In Germany – Rare And Exciting Snowfalls More Often Than Ever!

Remember the rare and exciting snowfall projection? That’s what the leading experts using their tuned models and super-computers told us. And whenever the rest of us had the audacity to doubt these longterm forecasts, we were scolded, got one across the knuckles, and branded as deniers. The gods are surely laughing. Germany’s central location in Europe acts as a […]

12 Days Of Christmas By Donna - And The Forecast For Europe

12 Days Of Christmas By Donna – And The Forecast For Europe

Canadian Donna Laframboise, who runs No Frakking Consensus, has this version of the 12 Days of Christmas that I simply have to direct your attention to. It’s great! The IPCC’s 12 Days of Christmas 1 On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me a climate bible with integrity. 2 On the second day of […]

Scientists Run Into Wind In Antarctica

Awhile back, guest writer Ed Caryl wrote a report here called A Wind In Antarctica. Today the online Der Spiegel has an article called South polar storms melting Antarctic ice, written by Axel Bojanowski, where winds are melting Antarctic ice. Yes, another factor they missed in the models! Huge icebergs are breaking off from the Antarctic […]

Der Spiegel 1974 – New Ice Age Approaching. Odds Of A Warm Future “At Best 1 in 10,000”

An increased frequency in extreme weather events, a cooling North Atlantic, and growing Arctic sea ice were viewed as signs of climate change. The odds of a warmer climate in the future, according to one scientist, were “at best 1 in 10,000” (see below). That’s what Der Spiegel wrote in a 3700-word article back in 1974, […]

German Church of Climatology Releases Survey Results Of The Faithful (And Unfaithful)

The push towards Green Fundamentalism. This is one of the most dangerous surveys the German government has ever commissioned.  What do you do when the global warming dogma is collapsing all over the world and people in Germany start expressing doubts, as they shovel snow almost daily and battle the icy cold? You produce a […]

Applying RC Policy To Warmists

In an earlier post, Silence of the Greens, I broke one of my own rules (not to delete opposing views, like RC does). But in this case, I felt one particular annoying ultra-warmist reader needed to learn his own lesson. That is, if they are going to make rules for the rest of us to live […]

IPCC Lead Author Peter Lemke Disappointed Nations Have Doubts About Faith-Based Self-Flagellation

The German online Süddeutsche Zeitung has a report by Peter Lemke, who directs Climate Sciences at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany, and was a lead author of the now infamous 2007 IPCC report. He presents his views of the Cancun Agreement. In the agreement, countries made pledges to limit global temperature rise to 2°C […]

Little Ice Age And Expanding Arctic Ice Coming – “Climate Forecasts Will Have To Be Thrown In The Dustbin”

The cold now sweeping over Europe and other parts of the globe are due to natural cycles, says German meteorologist Thomas Globig. He points out that the first 2 weeks of December in Britain have been the coldest since the last little ice age 350 years ago, and claims some climate models have criminally under-estimated solar influence on […]

Silence Of The Greens

Germany’s Greens grow silent when confronted with questions on democracy, tolerance and free speech. The German Greens think it is their duty to conduct inquisitions whenever anyone challenges prevailing environmental dogma. But whenever they themselves are asked tough questions on democracy and freedom of expression, they go silent and run for cover. When the questions get tough, the […]

Urban Heat Island Effect Can Be Up To 9°C , Says NASA

We know that more and more temperature stations have been sited in urban areas over the last few decades, and surely this has had an impact on the measurement of the globe’s temperature. But not to worry, say scientists, the raw data have been homogenized in order to compensate for this. Have they compensated enough? […]

Cancun: “Complete Travesty and Rout”

Greenie Walter Russell Mead has an interesting perspective on Cancun called Bureaucrats Swindle Greens In Cancun. Remember how Cancun was cheered as a success? In his view, Cancun was a complete disaster for the eco-zealots – “a rout”. Maybe some hard truths are beginning to dawn on the author, like the greens have been led around by […]

Rahmstorf Sea Level trend compared to actual satellite

How Rahmstorf & Vermeer Grossly Exaggerated Sea Level Rise

Tom Moriarty at Climate Sanity has done a thorough analysis of Stefan Rahmstorf ‘s and Martin Vermeer’s PNAS 2009 paper Global Sea Level Linked To Temperature, hereinafter RV2009, which claimed sea levels would rise 1.8 m by 2100 due to rising temperature. Turns out they used awfully “brutal mathematical contortions” and bad assunptions to reach this […]

Global Cooling Catches Sled Manufacturers Off Guard

Face it – the globe is trending cooler. One El Nino year does not make a trend. All the talk about global warming and snow becoming rare in the wintertime is turning out to be utter nonsense.The AMO, PDO and solar cycles bode cold for the globe. Check very carefully before believing anything else – […]

Maxeiner’s Satirical Piece On The Absurdity of Climate Science

Here’s a brilliant satirical piece on German radio by journalist Dirk Maxieiner on how the state thinks it can regulate weather and climate. Unfortunately the audio and text are only available in German. To all German readers here, if you have yet to hear it, then you really ought to do so. Dirk Maxeiner is the […]

“Record-Setting” Electric Car Maker Refuses Independent Testing. Was It Just A Hoax?

Back in late October it was all over the media; the jubilation was huge. A German retrofitted Audi A2 equipped with new high-tech batteries was driven 605 km from Munich to Berlin on a single charge with an average speed close to 90 kilometres per hour, read here. It was a new record. The Mayor […]

Bastardi Forecast: “Severe Event” For Europe

Hat tip Ron de HaanSo far it’s been a really cold winter for much of Europe, and so you’d think we’d be due for a little relief. Think again! Although western Europe will enjoy some milder temps this weekend, it isn’t going to last long. Already next week the bitter cold will be back. This […]

Slovak Sociologist Now Questions Manmade Climate Change

Slovak Sociologist Now Questions Manmade Climate Change

Not only in Western Europe are people doubting the assertions made by warmists, but people in Eastern Europe too. In fact they’ve been ahead of the “enlightened” western Europeans on this issue.Naturally the warmists are not amused by this. Their take on the debate in general is: “Just shut up, believe me, and don’t ask […]

Major Shift: Germany Now Views Climate Change As Positive!

Major Shift: Germany Now Views Climate Change As Positive!

Reaching an agreement in Cancun is out of reach. Representatives are desperate, and so they will go through every motion to give the appearance they are doing something  – anything. They are obligated to go through the formalities of trying, after all. Der Spiegel reports here that Germany’s Environment Minister Norbert Röttgen is now singing a […]

“I Have A Nightmare!” Activists Searching For A Climate Martin Luther King

Der Spiegel reports here on the latest ideas from climate activists to revitalize the stalled climate movement, which has run aground over the last year – thanks to Climategate and gross errors in the 2007 IPCC report. Hat-tip oekowatch.org. Yawn – a “loser topic” Surveys have found that the population is bored by the issue as a whole, and […]
