US Senate Candidate Josh Mandel: Climate Science “Is Inconclusive And Riddled With Fraud”!

By coincidence I came across a report at the cleveland.com by Henry J. Gomez about Ohio US Senate candidate Josh Mandel, who rightfully challenges global warming science. Gomez writes: Josh Mandel, Ohio’s Republican U.S. Senate candidate and an outspoken critic of White House environmental policies, said Sunday that he doubts the presence of global warming. The […]

Southern Westerly Wind Belt “Might Be Ultimately Forced By Solar Variability”

Atmospheric and ocean cycles are known to have profound effects on global weather and climate. A recent paper investigates the impacts of the southern westerly wind belt (SWW) and reveals that much remains unclear, and that the data show it “might be forced by solar variability”. From that we could conclude that the ice melt on […]

Spiegel 1974: “Temperatures Over Last 20 Years Have Dropped Faster Than At Anytime In The Last 1000 Years”

Looking back at the Spiegel archives, here’s another report warning of global cooling and that man was the cause: The desert is growing. There are some very familiar sounding excerpts (my emphasis): Undisputed is that the desert is growing…the Sahara in some places has expanded southwards by 48 km…24 million people in Mauritius, Senegal, Mali, Niger […]

Europe’s Summer Of 2003 Was Not “Unprecedented” – Climate Science Amnesia Exposed Again

Surprise in Western Europe: Hot Summer of 1540 Was Significantly Hotter Than Assumed Record Holder 2003 By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt In Western Europe the summer of 2012 was for the most part pretty lousy (see our blog report “When are we ever going to have a summer?“). It wasn’t until mid August […]

Spiegel Writes: “Germany Hits The Brakes On Renewable Energy”

With energy prices spiralling out of control, energy companies warning that electricity costs will increase 30% by 2020, companies threatening to move out, and hundreds of households having their power switched off because of they can’t pay their bills, Germany has slammed on the emergency brakes on renewable energy. The Green Boom has turned into […]

Unfit For Debate – Rahmtorf’s Flies Off – Unleashes Tirade Against “Conspiracy Theororist” Skeptics

I’ve been wondering when the PIK would take off the muzzle they seemed to have put on Rahmstorf after a German court fined him for spreading untruths about a journalist who dared to contradict his science. On that read: Lubos here, court-certification here, and here. Using the occasion of low Arctic ice, Rahmstorf now comes out […]

Oh No! Six Thousandths Of One Percent (0.006%) More Of The World’s Ice Melted This Summer!

So just how bad is the Arctic ice melt this year? Listening to the alarmists you’d think the world’s ice supply was rapidly dwindling. When dealing with such phenomena, you have got to pull your eyeballs back a little and take a look at the entire picture to put things in their proper perspective. The […]

Arctic Ice Loss: Temperature Or Soot?

Arctic Ice Loss: Temperature Or Soot?

By Ed Caryl There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth lately about the declining Arctic Ocean ice. Pierre and I have written several articles discussing the roll of soot and dust assisting melt of both the sea ice and the land ice on Greenland and other locations around the world. See here, here, and […]

German Green Pols Forget Their Biofuels Implementation – Now Propose Powering Society With “Herbal Fuels”

Food prices have been in the headlines lately, with more than enough stories blaming the crop shortages on climate change. That’s what the German greens would like to have us believe. Today, with huge swaths of land being covered and devoured by industrial-scale biofuels agriculture and food prices rapidly climbing to politically dangerous levels, the greens […]

Genius TAZ Leftist Paper: Arctic Sea Ice Now 600,000 Sq Km Less Than 2007!

600,000! Say what! This will certainly be the reaction of many readers here. Not to worry, that bogus 600,000 sq km number comes from the leftist TAZ, whose journalists obviously lack fundamental education on rudimentary mathematics. They are not able to do simple subtraction. Or maybe the TAZ expects that its equally enlightened readers cannot. The […]

The Handelsblatt Interviews Climate Catastrophe Skeptic Fritz Vahrenholt: The Fear Is Driven By Money

It used to be that climate skeptics in Germany never got interviews with major media outlets. It was a sort of unwritten rule. Headline: “The Temperature will rise only one degree” But now that seems to be changing – ever since the release of Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt’s and Sebastian Lüning’s skeptic book, Die kalte Sonne, […]

Number Of German Flyers Who Volunteer to Offset CO2 From Flights Is “Too Small To Be Measurable”!

I often have to listen to German greenies lecture the rest of the world about “responsible behavior” and “climate protection”. But when they are asked to make a contribution, they say no. Per capita, Germans are close to no. 1 worldwide when it comes to flying. And hearing them constantly pontificate about protecting the climate, you’d […]

Bathtub Plug Is Designed To Remind Us That The Planet Is In Peril!

Time only for a short story today, from Sebastian Lüning’s and Fritz Vahrenholt’s “Die kalte Sonne” here. I’ve translated: =================================== “Sounds crazy but it’s true. For all those who doubt climate change, a company called Propaganda has designed a bathtub plug in the form of an iceberg with a polar bear stranded on it. By […]

Germany’s Great Energy-Jobs Destruction Revolution – Green Energies In Collapse

Germany’s Great Energy-Jobs Destruction Revolution – Green Energies In Collapse

The European Institute for Climate and Energy here (EIKE) sums up the bad news in Germany’s energy industry, all brought on by failed green energy policies. What a mess! And things are set to get a lot worse. Bad news have been rolling in from all fronts over the last months and weeks. The green […]
