Greenpeace Accuses Russian Authorities Of Holding Activists As "Captives"

Greenpeace Accuses Russian Authorities Of Holding Activists As “Captives”

I watched the following  Greenpeace video clip of Camila Speziale, the youngest of the 30 Greenpeace activists. I really wonder if Greenpeace is getting the message at all. I found it peculiar that at the end of the video Greenpeace added the text (my emphasis): “Camila is one of the 30 activists taken captive when […]

International Experts: Greenpeace An “Extremist Organization” …”Often Uses Illegal Methods”…Now “Getting Its Due”…

The Moscow Times here writes that a Russian court has denied the Greenpeace activists bail, and the prospect of spending a long time in a Russian prison is increasingly becoming a grim reality. But unlike in the past, Greenpeace is now also being sharply criticized worldwide. The English-language Voice of Russia aims harsh criticism at Greenpeace, writing that […]

Explosive: Max Planck Institute Preliminary Forecast Shows 0.5°C Cooling Of North Atlantic SST By 2016!

Explosive: Max Planck Institute Preliminary Forecast Shows 0.5°C Cooling Of North Atlantic SST By 2016!

It’s not a secret that scientists and politicians have been deeply disappointed by the spectacular failure of climate models. 98% of the long-term climate models failed to project the 16-year warming stop, all having overstated the warming. So maybe it should not come as surprise that recently the German government quietly put out a bulletin describing a […]

"Most Severe Winter Start In 200 Years!" + Euro Municipalities Now Ignoring Foolish Predictions Of Warm Winters

“Most Severe Winter Start In 200 Years!” + Euro Municipalities Now Ignoring Foolish Predictions Of Warm Winters

Last Thursday evening and yesterday winter made its debut in Southern Germany and Austria  – and how! Read more here. German RTL television last night here (starting at 4:30) called it the “most severe start of winter in 200 years!“, saying many meteorologists were caught by surprise. Up to half a meter of snow fell […]

Snow Falls Weeks Early In Munich! ...Meteorologist: "Winter Strikes Unusually Early And Severely"!

Snow Falls Weeks Early In Munich! …Meteorologist: “Winter Strikes Unusually Early And Severely”!

Meteorologists warned us that snow was on the way and would fall below the 500 m elevation in southern Germany and elsewhere. Moreover, they warned us that this winter could be one of the worst in 100 years for Central Europe. No one knows if it’s really going to be such a winter, but one […]

Gross Scientific Negligence - IPCC Ignored Huge Body Of Peer-Reviewed Literature Showing Sun's Clear Impact

Gross Scientific Negligence – IPCC Ignored Huge Body Of Peer-Reviewed Literature Showing Sun’s Clear Impact

Proven by thousands of temperature datasets, the earth’s climate fluctuated cyclically in the past, and there’s an overwhelming body of evidence showing a close correlation with solar activity and other powerful natural factors. If the IPCC had truly examined past temperature developments and compared them to solar data, they’d have seen there is something remarkable […]

Schellnhuber Warns: Ocean Belch Would "Shock-Heat" Lower Troposhere Another 36°C Celsius (To Over 122°F)!

Schellnhuber Warns: Ocean Belch Would “Shock-Heat” Lower Troposhere Another 36°C Celsius (To Over 122°F)!

That’s summertime Death Valley conditions! Austrian flagship daily Der Standard here has an interview with Prof. Hans-Joachim Schellhnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany – the Vatican of climate alarmism. Photo right: Schellnhuber (see credit below)! In the interview Schellnhuber says that he thinks (not surprisingly) the latest IPCC report is […]

The Two Faces Of Greenpeace International’s Kumi Naidoo – From No Compromise To “Dialogue Is Paramount”

It’s long been known that Greenpeace environmentalists are condescending, know-it-all activists, who believe to hold the moral high ground, to be the keepers of the truth. That sort of mindset has led Greenpeace activists to a false belief they are above the law, that their perceived law is supreme to everyone else’s. Time and again […]

Russia May Lock Up Some Greenpeace Arctic Activists For Life In Wake Of Combative Tones By Kumi Naidoo

The online Ria Novosti news service has a report on the 30 activists who Russian officials have locked up for allegedly trespassing and attempting to storm onto a platform facility in the Arctic last month. According to the latest report from Ria Novosti, the Russians are now “hinting at drug charges against the Greenpeace activists” and […]

Forbes: “Duped By Unaffordable, Unreliable Climate Benefit-Premised ‘Green Energy’…High Costs Of Political Science”

Larry Bell has an excellent op-ed piece here at Forbes about Germany’s failing green energy experiment. Let it be a warning to others thinking of adopting the German plan. I’m very pleased to say NoTricksZone played an important role in contributing to the FORBES’ piece. This is an important issue because many countries in the […]

Carbon Dioxide And The Ocean: Temperature Is Driving CO2, And Not Vice Versa

Carbon Dioxide And The Ocean: Temperature Is Driving CO2, And Not Vice Versa

Carbon Dioxide and the Ocean By Ed Caryl In my last post, Figure 1 illustrated how much the annual carbon dioxide flux, the red trace, varied from year to year. Studies (here, here, and here, among others) have been done on the annual carbon flux, but they ignore this variation by using running averages, or […]

Current Sunspot Cycle Weakest In 190 Years – Recent Model Temperature Deviation Due To Solar Activity, Experts Say

The (tired) sun in September 2013 and spectral progress By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Currently solar activity is especially low. Solar sunspot number (SSN) in September was at 36.9, and thus was just 36% of the usual mean value 58 months into the cycle. The sun continues to remain in an […]

Online Spiegel Top Headline: “Contradictory Prognoses: Scientists Discover Discrepancies In UN Climate Report”

Online Spiegel as of right now has an unflattering report on the UN IPCC AR5 climate report as its top headline. This hardly helps the credibility of climate scientists. The headline article is dubbed: Contradictory Prognoses: Scientists Discover Discrepancies In UN Climate Report, written by Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski. The bold print introduction: The UN warns […]

IPCC Projected 2100 Temperature Range Corrected Downward Almost a Full 1°C, German Blog Shows

The IPCC corrects projected temperature range for 2100 downwards by 1°C By Michael Krueger, Science Skeptical (Translated and edited by P Gosselin) The IPCC AR5 Summary for Policymakers was released at the end of September, followed some days later by the Working Group 1 Report. The press directed much of its attention to sea level […]

Carbon Dioxide Will Cease To Be a Problem As Biosphere Absorbs Increasing Amounts Of CO2

Carbon Dioxide Will Cease To Be a Problem As Biosphere Absorbs Increasing Amounts Of CO2

Carbon Dioxide Will Cease To Be a Problem By Ed Caryl We do have the real world measurements of CO2, resolved to a monthly measurement with a well established seasonality that I will not describe here. We also know fairly accurately how much carbon we are injecting into the atmosphere from fossil sources. Figure 1 […]

Swiss Journalist Predicts: "Climate Catastrophe Will Soon Be Forgotten" Like All Other Environmental Scare Stories

Swiss Journalist Predicts: “Climate Catastrophe Will Soon Be Forgotten” Like All Other Environmental Scare Stories

It’s good to see that there are a few journalists who actually take journalism seriously and question what they are being told. One publication that has been doing a good job on this is Switzerland-based Weltwoche, which has written two pieces about the latest IPCC report. See here and here. Photo: Alex Reichmuth, Weltwoche.

Greenpeace’s Militant Pacifism…Protests Often Turn Violent, Pose A Danger…But Russia Stands Her Ground

Greenpeace is back in the media, right where it likes to be. This is what brings in the donations. But this time they are not finding the headlines quite to their liking as 30 of its members are now being accused of piracy by Russian authorities. Piracy? You mean the peaceful and angelic Greenpeace activists […]

Simply Maintaining Our Biosphere Will Keep CO2 Levels Below 450 PPM

Simply Maintaining Our Biosphere Will Keep CO2 Levels Below 450 PPM

What Are We Doing To The Biosphere? By Ed Caryl There have been many worried papers and articles on tropical rainforest destruction (including by this author), and this destruction’s effect on CO2 sequestration. There are countervailing forces in play, however. Tropical forests cut for “slash and burn” farming are typically allowed to return to the […]
