Spiegel: “Dispute With Scientists: Politicians Want To Ban Warming Stop From Climate Report”

There’s a lot going on today as the IPCC continues to clash violently with climate reality. We’ve always suspected that governments had contracted out the results to begin with. In the beginning, the scientists played along. After all the observations nicely followed the model projections for almost 2 decades. But the wanted results are no longer […]

Mounting IPCC Fallout…Flagship Daily ‘Die Welt’ Headline: “Scientists Withdraw Basis For Climate Regulators”!

The fallout surrounding the profound failures of the climate models used by the IPCC continues. If the German media is anything to go by, then IPCC science is virtually disintegrating before our very eyes. Europe has always been a bulwark against climate skepticism. No more. The online German ‘Die Welt’ daily reports today that the […]

Greenland Temperature Plummets To 40 Degrees Below Zero!

Recall how we were told over and over again that nowhere on the planet was warming faster than the Arctic. Greenland melting was supposed to be melting rapidly and a tipping point was fast approaching. But things seem to be swinging the other way now. This year has not been a good year for the […]

Successful House Climate Hearings...Rep. McKinley: Denying The Poor Affordable Energy Is "An Abuse Of Authority"

Successful House Climate Hearings…Rep. McKinley: Denying The Poor Affordable Energy Is “An Abuse Of Authority”

The purpose of the House Climate Change Hearing is to shed light on the question of: How much is man contributing to climate change, and how responsible is Obama’s energy policy?

Paedophilia Scandal Bringing Down German Greens 3 Days Before National Elections!

The timing for the scandal just couldn’t be worse for Germany’s third largest political party, the Greens. Only three days before Germany’s national elections, and it is now exploding out of control.

Die Welt Journalist On AR5: “Small Sensation: IPCC Backpedals Considerably” – Mann’s Hockey Stick Trashed For Good

Ulli Kulke, veteran journalist at Germany’s flagship daily Die Welt, writes at his Die Welt blog that “scientists from Potsdam not long ago were talking about a global temperature increase of four, five or even more degrees Celsius.” But with the recent news leaking out about the upcoming IPCC AR5, that scenario is looking more […]

Schellnhuber: “Entire Complexity Of The Climate System Can Be Reduced To A Simple Linear Relationship.”

Below Rainer Hoffmann presents Part 3 of his “10 Inconvenient Truths About Professor Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber“. I wrote about Part 1 here, and Part 2 focused on Schellnhuber’s claiming that climate models provide projections, forecasts, scenarios, prognoses, depending on the situation being served at hand. Part 3 below shows a whopper: Schellnhuber claiming that the complex, chaotic climate […]

He is one of the co-authors of the German skeptic book “Die kalte Sonne”, which took Germany by storm last […]

German Media Now Sharply Attacking Once Beloved Green Energy Feed-In Act…”Completely Out Of Control”

Not long ago, all of Germany’s political parties and media, whether socialist, green, liberal or conservative, embraced and voted into law the green energy feed-in act (EEG). The few remaining outspoken opponents were marginalized as political Neanderthals and climate deniers. Now fast-forward 5 years to today. My oh my how perceptions have changed. As the […]
