Meteorologist Dr. Wolfgang Thüne Calls Potsdam Institute’s Science “Pure Voodoo Magic For Spreading Fear Among The Public”

Meteorologist Dr. Wolfgang Thüne Calls Potsdam Institute’s Science “Pure Voodoo Magic For Spreading Fear Among The Public”

As the science of the warmists gets exposed as woefully inadequate, slipshod and flawed, all they can do now is give each other awards in pompous ceremonies in an effort to generate a (fake) sense of achievement and contribution. They’ve been reduced to a pretend world. One example is the Technical University of Berlin recently awarding […]

Big Wind Protesters/Greens In Vermont Show Comical Side Of Their Thinking – Blind Leading The Blind

Big Wind Protesters/Greens In Vermont Show Comical Side Of Their Thinking – Blind Leading The Blind

A few days ago I wrote here how green activists are (suddenly) horrified that the state of Vermont and Green Mountain Electric Company are defiling pristine mountain ridge-lines to make way for Big Wind, and thus are now protesting (and no longer supporting) wind parks in northeastern Vermont. Scott Wheeler interviews 2 Big Wind protesters, who […]

German Pols Now Demanding Energy Welfare For Its Citizens – 800,000 Have Had Their Electricity Cut Off!

Energy poverty is sweeping over modern Germany like never before. Flagship German newspaper Die Welt has an online report titled: Fast 800.000 Deutsche können Strom nicht bezahlen. In English: Almost 800,000 Germans cannot pay for electricity. Green energy leaves Germans in the dark. As Germany subsidies wealthy homeowners and businesses owners to install solar panels on their […]

Research Council Of Norway Recommendation: More Research On Natural Causes Of Climate Change!

This just released prestigious report is not going to please the IPCC scientists. It calls for a profound change of course in climate research. Snip of the report’s front cover. The Research Council Of Norway has conducted a comprehensive evaluation (see right side bar) of the status of climate science in Norway and released their results. […]

University Of Wisconsin Antarctica South Pole Station Sets New Record Low: -100.8°F…Media AWOL

According to the University of Wisconsin, Madison here, on June 11, 2012, the South Pole Station measured a new record low temperature. Antarctica weather station. Photo source: http://amrc.ssec.wisc.edu/aboutus/ The mercury dropped to -73.8°C/-100.8°F, breaking the previous minimum temperature record of -73.3°C/-99.9°F set in 1966. Must be because of global warming! Hat/tip: http://www.kaltesonne.de/  

German Geologist: Global Temperature Sees Slowest Ben Santer-Type Rise Since Satellite Data Began, 0.04°C Per Decade!

Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt’s website looks at the NOAA’s and NCDC’s relentless search for new climate records with which to scare the public. But as they show, despite what these alarmists conjure up, the warming is not getting faster, period. Figure 1: Temperature development of the last 33 years based on […]

Vermonters Realizing They’ve Erred…Citizens Ramp Up Protests Against Big Wind

In the 5-minute video below, there are lots of statements made that are worth quoting. Many are from environmentalists who now seem to realize something went horribly wrong. “Green yes, but not like this!” One of my favorites is by Justin Lindholm at the 4:35 mark: Maybe 10,000 years from now they’ll come around and wonder […]

New 2.8 Million Year Reconstruction Throws Climate Science Into Disarray – Was Up To 5°C Warmer Than Today!

So much for the notion that today’s climate is “unusual”. It turns out that some earlier interglacials were much warmer than the current one and that the variations cannot be explained by greenhouse gases alone. Source: Alfred Wegener Instutute A new temperature reconstruction suggests that (NATURAL) feedback mechanisms and amplifiers had to be at play. […]

German Press, Greenpeace Lament: “Rio+20 Was Finished Even Before It Started…Deflated, Exhausted Atmosphere”

The binding UN international treaty on limiting greenhouse gases and forcing “sustainable” living is dead. Is anyone listening any more? UN briefing to, um, hardly anyone. The world has once again been rescued (for the time being) from the real menace: radical environmentalism. We’ve done it. We’ve succeeded in dumping a load of sand into the machinery […]

What Are The Causes of Sea Level Rise?

What Are The Causes of Sea Level Rise?

Where Is All That Water Coming From? By Ed Caryl DirkH asked an interesting question in the comments to my last post: “It would be interesting to know how much of sea level rise is due to ancient aquifer depletion. Anyone got a number for that, in mm/yr?” The short answer (paper #1) is, about […]
