By Ed Caryl Is the world warming, cooling, or is the global temperature standing still? What does the future hold? Do past trends mean anything for the future? What period are we examining? For the purposes of this article, several short and long periods will be examined, 15, 150 and over 1000 years into the […]

Who’s Mr. FOIA?

220,000 plus climate e-mails are about to be unloaded by the mysterious Mr. FOIA. Who could he or she be? My feeling is that the authorities are going to find the identity of Mr. FOIA in lickety-split time. A manifesto is, after all, what revealed the Unabomber. These forensic language experts are really really effing […]

Media Of Deception: Germany’s Public Media Mislead Their Audience, Link 16,000 Tsunami Deaths To Fukushima

Can we trust the media? Germany’s massive public funded radio and television demonstrates to us that the answer is: not always. Yesterday many media outlets reported on the 2-year anniversary of Japan’s “earthquake/tsunami/Fukushima” disaster. The way some German public television and radio outlets are presenting the disaster 2 years later would probably make even North Korean […]

Tarot Cards Climate Article Suggests That AGW-Induced Arctic Ice Melt Creates "Superstorms"

Tarot Cards Climate Article Suggests That AGW-Induced Arctic Ice Melt Creates “Superstorms”

We know that according to the catastrophe-obsessed nut-jobs, everything bad is enhanced or caused by global warming. So this won’t surprise you. A new journal article appearing in Oceanography by scientists Charles H. Greene, Jennifer Francis und Bruce Monger at Cornell University now suggests that Hurricane Sandy was related to human-caused climate change. The article […]

Clear Solar Impact On Climate Shown By New Study - German Meteorologist Calls Parrenin et al Paper "The Latest Gag"

Clear Solar Impact On Climate Shown By New Study – German Meteorologist Calls Parrenin et al Paper “The Latest Gag”

Is CO2 the main driver behind climate? Warmist scientists would have us believe it is. One recent European study claims that CO2 and temperature rose simultaneously at the end of the last ice age, implying CO2 is a real driver. However, one prominent German meteorologist dismissed it and bluntly called the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et […]

Data Show That Nature Is Adding Most CO2 To The Atmosphere, And Not Man

Data Show That Nature Is Adding Most CO2 To The Atmosphere, And Not Man

The Carbon Cycle, Nature or Nurture – Part 2 By Ed Caryl In the last post, The Carbon Cycle, Nature or Nurture, sea surface temperatures were shown to have a large influence on CO2 rise in the atmosphere. This influence is so large, that changes in fossil fuel burning cannot be seen. In this article, […]

Leading “Energy Expert” Frustrated That Germans Are More Scared Of Renewable Energy Than Climate Change

UPDATE: Yesterday I left 2 regular comments at Kemfert’s Facebook site, but they have both since disappeared. Obviously she is not open to other views – we’re so surprised. Paul Hockenos at the European Energy Review (EER) reports that “energy expert” Dr. Claudia_Kemfert, Director of the Energy, Transportation, and Environment Unit at the prestigious Deutsche Institut […]
