Greenpeace Activists Destroyed Sight-Saving Golden Rice. NYT, Beeb, New Scientist Made False Reports

Greenpeace Activists Destroyed Sight-Saving Golden Rice. NYT, Beeb, New Scientist Made False Reports

Bill Gates tweets Revkin on the need for Golden Rice. Green activists acting out of pure ideology and emotion sabotage sight-saving crop… The True Story About Who Destroyed a Genetically Modified Rice Crop By Mark Lynas Did you hear that a group of 400 angry farmers attacked and destroyed a field trial of genetically modified […]

University Of Colorado Radar Altimetry Is Pretty Much Useless For Measuring Sea Level

University Of Colorado Radar Altimetry Is Pretty Much Useless For Measuring Sea Level

Satellite Measured Sea Level Is Measuring Ocean Heat By Ed Caryl Sometime in the last year, someone commented in some article that sea level rise as observed by satellite radar altimetry was overstated due to the fact that as warm water expands, it gets lighter, gravity has less pull on it, and it bulges up. […]

Spiegel: Scientists Hopelessly Stumped By Present Ocean Cooling, Still Insist They Are Certain About The Future!

Spiegel: Scientists Hopelessly Stumped By Present Ocean Cooling, Still Insist They Are Certain About The Future!

Right now we have over 65% more Arctic sea ice area, a record high sea ice area around Antarctica, a record low tornado season, record late start start hurricane season, 15 years of no global warming, a cooling tropical Pacific and a “strongly cooling Southern Ocean”. At Twitter Axel Bojanowski links to his Spiegel article […]

Lomborg On Cook 97% Survey: "It Turns Out They Have Done Pretty Much Everything Wrong"

Lomborg On Cook 97% Survey: “It Turns Out They Have Done Pretty Much Everything Wrong”

Bjorn Lomborg comments at Facebook on the Cook 97% survey. Has climate science gotten so bad that it is now resorting to utterly phony claims? Cook confirms that indeed it has. Here’s what Lomborg writes (my emphasis, links shortened): Ugh. Do you remember the “97% consensus”, which even Obama tweeted? Turns out the authors don’t […]

Germany's AfD Head: CO2 "Scientifically In Dispute", High Energy Prices Are "Threat To Social Balance".

Germany’s AfD Head: CO2 “Scientifically In Dispute”, High Energy Prices Are “Threat To Social Balance”.

Dr. Bernd Lucke, head of Germany’s AfD party, (Germany’s version of Britain’s UKIP), was interviewed by the National Anti Energy-Feed-In Act Movement (NAEB) and asked about his new party’s position on the Energiewende (transformation to renewable energy) and on climate science. AfD head Bernd Lucke, right, calling for an exit from euro and scale-back of subsidies […]

Analysis: Northern Mid-Latitudes Now Cooling 0.123°C Per Decade, And Seeing Reduction In Extreme Weather

Analysis: Northern Mid-Latitudes Now Cooling 0.123°C Per Decade, And Seeing Reduction In Extreme Weather

Can We Expect Extreme Weather – Continued By Ed Caryl In my last article on this subject, Can We Expect Extreme Weather, we examined the tropics, the mid-latitudes including the Arctic. At the time I had not found a plot of the mid-latitudes in isolation. Thanks to a comment by Alex, the search was resumed. […]

Leading IPCC Scientist Concedes Oceans Have “Profound Effect On Average Global Surface Air Temperature”

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel has issued a press release. In truth it says that the strong warming of 1978 to 1998 is in large part due to Pacific ocean cycles. We can now close the books on the silly CO2 science. Here is the press release in English (my emphasis): August 22, 2013/Kiel. […]

Destruction Of Tropical Forests Making Massive Contribution To Atmospheric CO2 Increase

Destruction Of Tropical Forests Making Massive Contribution To Atmospheric CO2 Increase

Why is CO2 Rising – Part 2 By Ed Caryl How much biosphere has been destroyed? Deforestation is a large loss to the biosphere. From Wikipedia: Global deforestation[92] sharply accelerated around 1852.[93][94] It has been estimated that about half of the Earth’s mature tropical forests—between 7.5 million and 8 million km2 (2.9 million to 3 […]

Growing German Green Intolerance: Greens/Leftists Carry Out Violent Attacks Against CO2 And Euro Skeptical AfD Party

Growing German Green Intolerance: Greens/Leftists Carry Out Violent Attacks Against CO2 And Euro Skeptical AfD Party

Germany’s version of Britain’s UKIP party is the new AfD Alternative_for_Germany party. The AfD party is the result of Germany’s established parties having stopped listening to its citizens. It takes a position against the euro-currency, the hysterical transition to renewable energies, and has cast considerable doubt over climate science itself. Now it is being violently […]

Observed Temperature Data Show No Signs Of Increasing Global Heat Waves Or Extremes

Can We Expect Extreme Weather? By Ed Caryl The latest rallying cry from the catastrophic AGW crowd is that we can expect more heat waves, roaming heat waves, popping up unexpectedly and unpredictably. We hear this from Kevin Trenberth here (and refuted by Willis Eschenbach here), and from the PIK here. What about this? Is […]

NASA Stumped: Summer Arctic Ice Extent Among Highest This Decade, Antarctica “Headed Toward Record Extent”

NASA has released its latest sea ice report. These are tough times for climate alarmists. The truth is: There’s a lot more sea ice out there this year than they ever imagined. NASA makes some interesting comments. First they tell us that Arctic sea ice is over 1.5 million sq. km above last year, and […]

Why Is CO2 Rising? Biosphere Destruction Is The Primary Source, And Not Fossil Fuel Burning

Why Is CO2 Rising? Biosphere Destruction Is The Primary Source, And Not Fossil Fuel Burning

By Ed Caryl The natural CO2 flux to and from oceans and land plants amounts to approximately 210 gigatons of carbon annually. (Note that this is carbon. Multiply the numbers by 3.7 for the total weight of CO2 including the two oxygen atoms.) Man currently causes about 9 gigatons of carbon to be injected into […]

National Geographic Scores Own-Goal...Pathetically Rehashes 27 Year-Old Spiegel Cover Hyperbole Trick

National Geographic Scores Own-Goal…Pathetically Rehashes 27 Year-Old Spiegel Cover Hyperbole Trick

The public by now has heard every climate scare story at least five times over the last three decades. They’ve stop listening years ago. Yet, the last remaining, diehard alarmists are reaching ever deeper into their bag of tricks in an attempt to reawaken the good old days of climate alarmism. We certainly can tell we […]

Why Isn’t It Warming?

Why Isn’t It Warming?

By Ed Caryl By now, well informed people are aware that there has been no warming for the last 16 or so years. Why should this be if CO2 has increased by 8% in that time? We are told by 97% of climate researchers, that CO2 doubling must warm us by 2 to 4.5 degrees […]

South Polar Sea Ice Sets All-Time Satellite Record - Now Above Normal Almost 2 Years Uninterrupted!

South Polar Sea Ice Sets All-Time Satellite Record – Now Above Normal Almost 2 Years Uninterrupted!

It’s been so quiet in the mainstream media this year when it comes to polar sea ice. So I figure there must be something going on there that they just don’t want us to see. The Arctic is refusing to melt like it did last year, and there’s hardly a chance it’s even going to […]

Study Confirms It's Worse Than We Thought - German Wind Parks Killing Quarter Million Bats Per Year

Study Confirms It’s Worse Than We Thought – German Wind Parks Killing Quarter Million Bats Per Year

Environmentalists for years have preached that wildlife and nature needed to be protected. But today to accomplish that aim, they tell us it’s necessary to industrialize our landscape with skyscraper-size noisy wind turbines. Germany’s Federal Ministry of Environment buries its own study that windmills kill wildlife on a massive scale. Photo: Espen Lie Dahl. Photo […]

German Meteorologists Ridiculing IPCC – PIK Science: “Climate Hysterics Are Back…Coming Out Of Their Caves”

Sometimes it takes awhile for bad science to be exposed. Often it starts with one person finding an inconsistency, digging a little deeper, and then announcing that something is rotten. That person in turn gets attacked and smeared as an outcast. But a few other, open-minded persons take a closer look and they too realize that […]

Over A Quarter Of The World’s Population (1.8 Billion People) Have Never Seen Global Warming In Their Lives

Steve Goddard here wrote, “Every current elementary school child on the planet has seen only global cooling during their life.” Wood for Trees: Interactive Graphs Well, how much of the world’s population is that? According to this site here, that’s 26% of the world’s population – or 1.8 billion people. Soon global warming will be a […]

Washington Becomes Burma On Climate Science…Krauthammer Calls It “Appalling…Anti-Scientific…Scandalous”

When the president chooses to bypass Congress and the usual institutions to enact minority-supported regulation, and decides to decree it on his own, then he’s proven his utter failure to lead and has embarked on the ruinous path to tyranny. Hat-tip: Marc Morano at Climate Depot That path is one of arrogance, a despise for the will of […]

Rahmstorf Claims “New Generation” Of Climate Models Are Robust Because “They Can Predict The Past Very Well”!

PIK scientist Stefan Rahmstorf at Twitter directs our attention to an interview he gave on German Public Radio. The interview is about new models that predict the frequency of heat waves globally will double in the next seven years alone, i.e. by 2020, and quadruple again by 2040. I wrote about this yesterday here. In […]
