German National Weather Service: “No Significant Trend To More Drought In Europe…Dryness La Niña -Related”

In layman’s terms, that means: Forget the man-made global warming poppycock! There’s been a lot of bed-wetting going on about “increasing” extreme weather events like droughts, floods, heat, tornadoes and dry periods. All because of climate change? Not so, says the German Weather Service DWD (surprisingly)! Precipitation over much of Europe over 2011 was 80% or less than […]

Data From Leading IPCC Scientists Show Global Temps Have DROPPED Unprecendented 1°C Since 1990!

Data From Leading IPCC Scientists Show Global Temps Have DROPPED Unprecendented 1°C Since 1990!

If you ask renowned IPCC scientists what the mean global temperature is today, they tell you it’s 14.5°C. And if you ask them what it was 20 years ago, you would expect the answer to be about 14°C. Surprisingly, their literature from 20 years ago tell us unanimously that in 1990 the global temperature was 15.5°C, one […]

Millennium Cycles: New Paper Reveals Clear Solar Impact On The Climate 9000 – 6000 Years Ago

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) The climate of the last 10,000 years has not been as stable as leading IPCC scientists assume. Over the last 10 years there has been a flurry of papers from studies conducted all over the world (Figure 1) and they reveal cyclic fluctuations of the climate on a […]

Now Backyard Barbeques Are Destroying The Planet – Leading German Alarmist Site Frets

The demonization of the outdoor barbecue has begun – expect it to be banned soon in our lifetime. I like visiting the German alarmist websites. Among my favorites is klimaretter “climate rescuers”, a leading alarmist site run by a gaggle of tree-hugging, panic-spreading kooks who insist the end is near. They’re aligned with Joe Romm, Bill McKibben […]

Paul Ryan Will Be The “Steve McIntyre” Of US Government Finance – DC Hockey League Nightmare!

In this American Thinker piece by Clarice Feldman, the parallels to Steve McIntyre just jumped right out at me. The German press is trying to make it look like the Democrats are thrilled about Ryan being the running mate, (predictably) painting Ryan as a “huge target” and a “radical conservative”, just because he believes in […]

Renowned German Sociologist: Claims Of Absolute Scientific Knowledge Are Premature, Political Propaganda

Hans von Storch’s Klimazwiebel here posted an insightful essay by University of Bielefeld sociologist Prof. Peter Weingart titled (roughly translated): “The Limits of Science Advising Policy – Forget About the Opportunities“. Weingart cautions us against allowing an elite class of scientists to shape our public policy.The essay first appeared in Gegenworte – Hefte für den Disput über […]

VP Candidate Paul Ryan: Climatologists “Intentionally Mislead The Public On Climate Change”

We all know that Romney is wishy-washy when it comes climate change science, and that us so-called skeptics were not at ease with that. Well, now you can cast your worries aside. Over the last hours there’s been a lot of buzz out in the media that Paul Ryan has been chosen as Romney’s running […]

Validating MODTRAN for Climate Studies

Validating MODTRAN for Climate Studies

By Ed Caryl Some commenters on my previous articles using MODTRAN, here and here, have called into question the validity of using it to investigate the physics behind the CAGW theory. Of course in the 24 year history of MODTRAN, the US Air Force and many other organizations, including climate scientists, have validated the software […]

Yet Another Paper Shows Manmade CO2 Plays Insignificant Role In Climate Change

The main pillar of the global warming, climate change theory is the claim that trace gas CO2 is the single major player impacting climate today. To maintain this, alarmist scientists and climate modelers have been forced to blow up the effects of CO2 by one order of magnitude in their models and to neglect a series […]

Richard Muller Is A Fake, German Der Spiegel Magazine Writes

It seems that parts of the German mainstream media are becoming more cautious with the information warmist scientists feed them. For example Axel Bojanowski of Der Spiegel here writes a report about Richard Muller’s “CALL me a converted skeptic” opinion piece that appeared in the “New York Times”, which the German and international warmist media gleefully pounced upon. But Bojanowski […]

Epic Warmist Fail! - Modtran: Doubling CO2 Will Do Nothing To Increase Long-Wave Radiation From Sky

Epic Warmist Fail! – Modtran: Doubling CO2 Will Do Nothing To Increase Long-Wave Radiation From Sky

By Ed Caryl This is a short extension to my last article on Why The Earth Is Cooling. When I first began exploring Modtran, the numbers it produced for downward radiation at the surface seemed to make no sense. It nearly always produced the same number, and I thought that part of the program was broken. […]

Why The Earth Is Cooling - CO2 Warming Is Only A Tenth Of What The Models Show!

Why The Earth Is Cooling – CO2 Warming Is Only A Tenth Of What The Models Show!

By Ed Caryl The Climate Team has always claimed that a doubling of CO2 would add 3.7 Watts/m2 to the global climate budget and thus this would fry us all. This fate is their religion’s version of Hell, except we will all suffer this rather than just the “sinners,” thus giving them leverage to force […]

German Historical Museum: Climate Change 1500 Years Ago Helped Cause The Roman Empire To Collapse

German Historical Museum: Climate Change 1500 Years Ago Helped Cause The Roman Empire To Collapse

Another short one… Last week my wife and I spent a few days in Berlin, and we visited the German Historical Museum. Part of Germany’s very early history involves the Roman Empire, which never succeeded in taming the unruly tribes east of the Rhine. Climate change during the Roman Empire days, when CO2 was below 300 ppm. […]

“Base Policy On Observations, And Not Speculative Models”

A small break from my blogging break… You can’t tame the weather and regulate the Earth’s temperature by regulating a single trace gas. You’d be more successful with a rain dance. H/t: WUWT

Blogging Break

Dear readers It’s time for a break from blogging. I’ve gotten a hefty amount of work to do and the deadlines are really tight. There’s no way I will be able to blog regularly for the next two weeks. I may be able to post a short item or two here and there, but not more. It’s […]
