Hans von Storch: “Serious Problem” For Climate Research If Temperature Doesn’t Change In The Next 5 – 6 Years!

The print edition of Spiegel today has an interview with Prof Hans von Storch, the outspoken leading climate scientist often aims criticism at both sides of the climate debate. Not that von Storch is sort of a provocateur, rather he only speaks his mind, which at times for some means a message they’d prefer not to […]

Dice N’ Splice – Curve Designer Stefan Rahmstorf: “We Are Catapulting Ourselves Out Of The Holocene”!

At the SciLogs website, Stefan Rahmstorf of the über-alarmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research presents Part III of his Mann-hockey-stick-resurrection series. Here he explains to his German readers how the temperature really developed over the Holocene and why the 20th century is “unique”. To do this, Rahmstorf uses the findings of the already refuted […]

The Economist On Germany’s Energiewende: “Web Of Grotesque Distortions” … “Will Kill German Industry”

The Economist here has an excellent analysis of the German “Energiewende” which is the country’s bold transformation to (80%) renewable energy by 2050. Right now the Economist is not too impressed, and its report should serve as a warning to other countries contemplating a similar move. Hat tip Judith Curry (must read). Some quotes: “Germany’s Energiewende […]

New Study Shows Antarctica Ice Is Melting 70% More Slowly Than Thought - Another Scare Bites The Dust

New Study Shows Antarctica Ice Is Melting 70% More Slowly Than Thought – Another Scare Bites The Dust

Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt’s Die kalte Sonne website talks about the latest study on Antarctic ice. Remember that we keep hearing that the next IPCC report will be even scarier than the last one of 2007. ======================== Antarctic Ice Sheet Indeed Melting Slower Than Originally Thought By Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning […]

France Plans To Desecrate D-Day Normandy Beaches By Erecting Adjacent Windpark

France Plans To Desecrate D-Day Normandy Beaches By Erecting Adjacent Windpark

Just when you thought going green could not get more outrageous, now comes one of the most enraging plans imaginable: erecting a large-scale wind park next to the sacred D Day beaches of Normandy, where thousands of soldiers died to liberate France and Europe in 1944. Members of an American landing party lend helping hands […]

Skeptical Science Folly: Video Based On Flawed Rahmstorf & Foster Paper Disappears!

Die kalte Sonne website posted an article yesterday about a Skeptical Science video folly. ============================================ Climate activist group close to IPCC removes video: The science on which it was based, from Stefan Rahmstorf, is no longer the scientific consensus By Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning (translated/edited by P Gosselin) For years Skeptical Science has been […]

More Baffled German Scientists - Expedition To Find Out "Why Antarctic Sea Ice Is Expanding"

More Baffled German Scientists – Expedition To Find Out “Why Antarctic Sea Ice Is Expanding”

For a science claimed to have been settled already years ago, there sure are lots of new, profound questions popping up. For example: Why has global warming stopped? or Why are European winters getting bitter cold? or Why have the models been so wrong? or Where are the hurricanes! Now there’s another question that has […]

Maxeiner, Miersch And Magdeburg: Superstitious Spiegel Devolves To The Dark Ages, Blames Floods On “Deniers”

When the Little Ice Age brought widespread crop failures, mass starvation, and disease in populated Europe some centuries ago, the enlightened ones blamed the climate-related misery and misfortune on the black magic of sorcerers and witches – who were promptly tried and burned at the stake. In other cultures, people performed rain-dances, human sacrifices, or other […]

Prof. Murry Salby's Presentation In Hamburg: Climate "Model World" Diverges Starkly From "Real World"

Prof. Murry Salby’s Presentation In Hamburg: Climate “Model World” Diverges Starkly From “Real World”

Die kalte Sonne website here has just posted the video presentation of Murry Salby in Hamburg in April. If anyone ever demolished the dubious CO2 AGW science, it’s Salby! Most of the presentation is very mathematical and technical. But the last 10 minutes sums everything up very nicely for the laypersons. Die kalte Sonne writes: Prof. […]

Grand Tamino Fail; 2011: “Earth Presently Warming 1.7°C/Century.” (Today Data Show No Warming In 15 Years!)

One by one the great warmist scientists today are finding it ever harder to come to terms with brutalities of climate reality, and are gradually being exposed as incompetent science buffoons. Back in 2011 Tamino’s (Grant Foster’s) careful analysis led him to conclude (my emphasis): To answer the question posed in the title of this post: […]

Honeycutt-Nuccitelli Climate Bet Progress Report...So Far New Decade Is Cooler Than The Last...Ready To Concede?

Honeycutt-Nuccitelli Climate Bet Progress Report…So Far New Decade Is Cooler Than The Last…Ready To Concede?

To mark the start of the new decade, NoTricksZone and its readers made a climate bet (see right side bar) against two warmists from Skeptical Science: Rob Honeycutt and Dana Nuccitelli (and others). Also see update-5. The warmists are pledging more than $14,000.00! Rob overall has been a good sport and is a pleasure to deal with. Dana, […]

As Floods Hit Eastern Germany, Recent Potsdam Climate Institute Model Warned Of Summertime "Water Shortages"!

As Floods Hit Eastern Germany, Recent Potsdam Climate Institute Model Warned Of Summertime “Water Shortages”!

Holger Thuss, President of the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) at Facebook brings up a report appearing at the online FOCUS just last September. In the report the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact research (PIK) warned that summers in eastern Germany would suffer from “water shortages”. That’s what their models had shown. FOCUS wrote […]

DWD German Weather Service: Observations Of Precipitation In Germany Show "NO CLEAR TREND"!

DWD German Weather Service: Observations Of Precipitation In Germany Show “NO CLEAR TREND”!

Over the last few days, parts of Germany have been hit by some of the worst flooding seen in 100 years after heavy rains hit southern and eastern regions over a period of 4 days. Since then armies of climate charlatans have appeared in the media claiming it’s all because of man’s fossil sins. Today the […]

EU Green Imbeciles, Solar Industry Hacks Launch "Trade War That Can't Be Won" Against China!

EU Green Imbeciles, Solar Industry Hacks Launch “Trade War That Can’t Be Won” Against China!

The Handelsblatt today writes about the newly imposed import tariffs the EU has levied to keep out low-cost, affordable solar panels made in China. The subheading below the title reads: With punitive tariffs on solar products, the EU has angered China. The government in Peking has condemned the import tariffs and is now retaliating: with […]

European Institute For Climate And Energy Calls Claims Of Climate Consensus “Absurd, Baseless And False”

The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) based in Germany has issued a three-part rebuttal to the German Ministry of Environment’s alarmist pamphlet, which blacklisted skeptical US and German journalists and scientists – including EIKE itself – last month. Scientists and experts at EIKE criticize Germany’s Ministry of Environment (UBA) for targeting dissenting views, calls notion […]

Mark Levin's Landmark Foundation Sues EPA: "Breathless Pattern of Obfuscation And Apparent Deception"

Mark Levin’s Landmark Foundation Sues EPA: “Breathless Pattern of Obfuscation And Apparent Deception”

Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation has filed an opposition to the EPA’s motion for summary judgement in the “Greenhouse Gases” case in U.S. Supreme Court. Looks like the EPA has been much less than forthcoming when dealing with Freedom of Information Act requests and is hiding something. Mark Levin goes to the Supreme Court in an […]
