Yellow Science…Renowned Climate Modeller Now Claims Temperature Stagnation Is Actually Evidence Of Warming!

Yellow Science…Renowned Climate Modeller Now Claims Temperature Stagnation Is Actually Evidence Of Warming!

Lately climate scientists have been telling us that cold weather is now evidence of warming, hard winters and big snowstorms, too. Well, it turns out that the current global temperature stagnation is also now strong evidence of global warming. At least that’s what climate modeller Prof. Reto Knutti writes at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology […]

Von Storch/Krauss New Book: “Global Society Doesn’t Need Politicized Science Calling For A 2°C Target”

Yesterday I wrote about Hans von Storch’s and Werner Krauss’s new book: “The Climate Trap – the dangerous proximity of politics and climate science”. There is already some reaction to the book, which is scheduled to be released on February 25…a little over a year since Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning dropped their bombshell “Die […]

Germany’s Vision Of Electric Mobility Fades As Renewable Energy Sector Collapses, And Nuclear Power Is Refused

Germany’s rosy vision of electric car mobility, like windmills and solar energy, may have once looked good on paper, but it sure is now taking a licking from reality. “In the process of dying off,” says a German auto expert from the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Another Blow To Germany’s Solar Industry: “Center For Solar Excellence” Bankrupt After Less Than 3 Years!

MDR television and radio here report of another solar energy catastrophe in Germany. Hat tip: Holger Thuss via Facebook. It was a high tech center opened amid much media fanfare and ceremony back in April 2010, as the video below shows. Fanfare and ceremony surrounded the opening of the now bankrupt “Center For Excellence” back in April […]

Germany’s Solar Bloodbath Continues…Bosch Solar Arm Loses More Than $2.5 Billion in 3 Years!

Klimaretter, the German catastrophe-obsessed warmist site that dedicates itself to “rescuing the climate”, has a story today of the ongoing bloodbath in the German solar industry, here. Engineering giant Bosch issued a press release in English here, where it reports that a cooling global economy has slowed the pace of growth of the Bosch Group. […]

Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt: OHC Tells Us To “Prepare For A Long Phase Of Temperature Stagnation”

Someone please tell us where’s the warming By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) The Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) has released the global mean temperature figure for 2012. The anomaly is +0.56° Celsius. A look at the last 30 years (a climate-relevant time-period) shows a global temperature stagnation: Temperature anomaly […]

IPCC & Climate Science Taken Over By Environmentalists. Christy: “Reports By Advocacy Groups Not Credible”

IPCC & Climate Science Taken Over By Environmentalists. Christy: “Reports By Advocacy Groups Not Credible”

Imagine if the sugar and butter industries took over nutritional sciences. It wouldn’t be long before fruits and vegetables turned out to be the most dangerous foods on the planet. When it comes to climate science and energy policy, a similar absurdity is taking place, i.e. the environmentalists are taking over energy policy-making. Canadian investigative […]

Leading German Meteorologist Dismisses Climate Horror Scenarios…”Are Without Any Scientific Merit”

Dr. Karsten Brandt is one of Germany’s leading commercial meteorologists and runs www.donnerwetter.de/, which provides forecasting services in the private sector. He often appears as an expert in the German media, see here for example. At his donnerwetter.de site he recently published an article, which I’ve translated in English with kind permission. ================================================= Where’s the Climate Change? […]

Cold Claims Over 300 Lives In Eastern Europe – Tens Of Thousands Without Power…Media Pretend It’s Warming!

Cold Claims Over 300 Lives In Eastern Europe – Tens Of Thousands Without Power…Media Pretend It’s Warming!

The European media are just too embarrassed about having gotten it completely wrong when it comes to global warming. So they just continue pretending that the cold isn’t really happening. As people are freezing to death all around them this winter, they keep telling themselves (and us) it’s getting warmer! I’ve never witnessed such an astonishingly […]

Are Europe’s Blogs In Danger? European Commission Advisers Propose Stricter Monitoring Of Internet Media

Today’s totalitarian ideas are always disguised as righteous plans to ensure “fairness” and “social justice” and they often start in Europe. Then the US Democrats drool over them and scheme to sneak them into the US. The latest in Europe is to take much more control over the media. German flagship daily the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung has […]

Major German Daily Carries Front-Page Headline: “Global Warming Keeps Us Waiting…CO2 Over-Estimated?”

For awhile it appeared the German mainstream media were going to ignore the reality that the globe hasn’t warmed since the issue has been around (15 years).

Spiegel has finally gotten around to conceding that global warming has ended, at least for the time being. Yesterday Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski published a piece called: Klimawandel: Forscher rätseln über Stillstand bei Erderwärmung (Climate change: scientists baffled by the stop in global warming). We’ve been waiting for this admission a long time, and […]

Lance Armstrong, Livestrong And Climate Research

I commented at Facebook about Lance Armstrong earlier today, writing that I had pretty much lost respect for Lance when he paired up with jet-setting climate activist and “rock star” Sheryl Crow, and watching John Kerry acting like his best fan at the 2004 Tour. Today it doesn’t surprise me that he has turned out […]
