Europe Climate Policy Blows Engine…”Giant Failure” … Scientists “Failed Tricking Their Way Past Democracy” … Mood Of Resignation

Good news! This is about one of the most damning pieces on the European climate movement I’ve read all year, and that from Germany’s equivalent of the Washington Post. An atmosphere of resignation is truly sweeping through Germany’s climate movement. Flagship media are waking up. We’re winning! “Failed tricking their way past democracy” The Frankfurter […]

Blimey! Skeptical Science Admits Current Decade Running 0.053°C Cooler Than Last Decade!

I got an e-mail from an NTZ reader who brought a recent post at Skeptical Science to my attention. Normally I don’t read reality-denial, end-of-world theorist sites. But in this case I had to make an exception. In general, for once, it’s even worth reading. ======================================================= Climate Bet for Charity, 2013 Update Posted on 27 November […]

Data Comparison Shows GISS Arctic Winter Temperature Trend Grossly Overblown, Arctic Data Contaminated, Flawed

Data Comparison Shows GISS Arctic Winter Temperature Trend Grossly Overblown, Arctic Data Contaminated, Flawed

GISS surface temperature data is overall in very close agreement with the RSS satellite data. But for some reason, the GISS winter temperature trend for the Arctic profoundly diverges from RSS satellite data. =================================== GISS Ground Based Versus Satellite Temperatures By Ed Caryl In my article Cowtan and Way – Which bias was it again?, Figure […]

Staggering Concessions By Austria's National Weather Service: "Natural Factors Substantial...Models Inadequate"!

Staggering Concessions By Austria’s National Weather Service: “Natural Factors Substantial…Models Inadequate”!

A November 11, 2013 press release by Austria’s national weather service, the Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik (ZAMG), somehow got by me. And not surprisingly it was completely ignored by the German-language mainstream media. It’s titled: “Slower temperature increase: climate models under scrutiny“. In the introduction the ZAMG writes: If one compares the temperature development of the last […]

Astronaut/Physicist Walter Cunningham: After 15 Years, Has “Not Found One Piece Of Evidence” Supporting CO2!

CFACT has a video of a speech made by physicist/astronaut Walter Cunningham while at COP 19 in Warsaw. He starts by saying that climate used to be a very respected science, but that it began to deteriorate about 20 years ago and has long become politicized and is being misused for more government control. He […]

Flagship FAZ’s Damning Book Review: Today’s Climate Hysteria Resembles Witch Hunts Of The Dark Ages

Perhaps some leading opinion-shapers in Germany have become aghast at the hysterical and hyper-irrational reaction coming from “climate scientists” in the wake of typhoon Yolanda, a single, destructive storm supposedly brewed by the misdeeds of darker forces, e.g. the 90 top carbon emitters of the world. Despite the progress science and technology we’ve seen since the […]

Swiss Journalist: Warmists Frustrated By Lack Of Public Interest, "Arguments Are Becoming More Adventurous"

Swiss Journalist: Warmists Frustrated By Lack Of Public Interest, “Arguments Are Becoming More Adventurous”

Swiss veteran journalist Alex Reichmuth at the online Weltwoche here writes that despite the lack of warming over past 15 years, recovering Arctic sea ice, and slowdown in sea level rise, “the warners of climate catastrophe are not impressed. Their arguments are getting more adventurous”. This especially in the wake of typhoon Yolanda. Swiss journalist Alex […]

GISS Data Confirm Winters Definitely Getting Colder Over Northern Hemisphere Continents Since 1995!

GISS Data Confirm Winters Definitely Getting Colder Over Northern Hemisphere Continents Since 1995!

Also in the Alps! (See GISS Figure 2 below). ================================== Are Winters Getting Colder? By Ed Caryl There is much denial disbelief going around about our ever changing world. Are the winters getting colder? Are the summers getting hotter? Are the ice-caps melting? What’s going on? Fortunately there are systems keeping track. And there are […]

Cowtan And Way: Which Bias Was It Again?

Cowtan And Way: Which Bias Was It Again?

By Ed Caryl The recent Cowtan and Way paper attempting to fill gaps in the Arctic surface temperature records by in-filling with satellite data has triggered many reactions in the blogosphere. Cowtan and Way claimed that the coverage gaps in the surface data resulted in a cooling bias that they attempted to correct with satellite […]

One-Sided IPCC Alarmism Promotion Video Already Receiving Harsh Criticism...Scientists Purporting To Be Prophets

One-Sided IPCC Alarmism Promotion Video Already Receiving Harsh Criticism…Scientists Purporting To Be Prophets

Hans von Storch’s Klimazwiebel site here presents a just released video featuring some IPCC lead authors that is designed, it appears, to promote alarmism and the myth that the science is settled and that it is now time for policymakers to act decisively. At 2:05 mark of video, we clearly see the above graphic. Note […]

Germany's FAZ Features Chart No German Was Ever Supposed To See: John Christy's "Catastrophic Errors Graph"

Germany’s FAZ Features Chart No German Was Ever Supposed To See: John Christy’s “Catastrophic Errors Graph”

Today Germany’s flagship political daily, the renowned Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), which has long been a disciple of global warming religion (woeful deficits in climate sciences have long been a problem of the German mainstream media) raised a few eyebrows in daring to feature the global warming-blasphemous chart that no German was ever supposed to see.

Austrian Meteorologists Stupefied Into Silence! Data From Alps Show Marked Cooling Over Last 2-3 Decades!

Austrian Meteorologists Stupefied Into Silence! Data From Alps Show Marked Cooling Over Last 2-3 Decades!

UPDATE: GISS data confirm Jung’s results. Note: the temperature data was evaluated by meteorologist Jung, and not the Austrian weather service, as was mistakenly reported. The result, however, remains unchanged. ============================== Perhaps you’ve been wondering why the alarmists have been so shrill lately? It’s not because the climate is overheating, to the contrary it’s beginning to […]

Spiegel Describes COP 19 … “UN Conference Descends Into A Climate Circus” … NGOs Fume And Boycott … Every Single Issue In Dispute…

Spiegel today describes a COP 19 UN climate conference that has descended into a stunning chaos. NGOs are fuming that governments are no longer taking IPCC science seriously, and are now boycotting in anger. The situation is so bad that environmental activist groups have had enough and are walking out. According to Spiegel, Oxfam, Greenpeace, WWF, […]

Data Show Cyclone Activity Depends On Temperature Difference Between Tropics And Poles - Dramatic Decrease With Warming

Data Show Cyclone Activity Depends On Temperature Difference Between Tropics And Poles – Dramatic Decrease With Warming

Is Cyclone Activity Increasing? By Ed Caryl In the aftermath of the sole very strong tropical cyclone we experienced this year, all the catastrophists have since piled on claiming it was all caused by a warming world. They conveniently forget that one of their claims is that the polar regions are warming faster than the […]

Astronaut Walter Cunningham: “Absence of Supporting Data…Climate Models Have Never Successfully Predicted Anything”!

Here’s a segment of the press conference video of COP 19 from CFACT. Verna from the UK Youth Climate Coalitions is stunned how anyone could doubt the global warming religion, asking the panel, “How you can sleep at night?” Clearly the young lady has never read the science and refuses to be aware that there […]

Germany Joins Japan, Canada, Australia In Abandoning Useless Fight Against Climate Change…Actions Speak Louder!

Germany has always been viewed as one of the leaders in “fighting climate change”. But when you examine what the country has really accomplished in reducing CO2 emissions, we see that country’s actions tell another story. And when you examine its current activities, one thing stands clear: Germany is no longer taking the futile fight against climate […]

While Global Coal Consumption Jumps 70% Since 2000, Global Temperature Falls 0.03°C Since 2002!

While Global Coal Consumption Jumps 70% Since 2000, Global Temperature Falls 0.03°C Since 2002!

According to 53-page report here released by environmental activist group urgewald.org/, which looks at financing of the coal industry by major banks, global coal consumption has risen “to a staggering 7.9 billion tons annually”; that’s a 69% increase since the year 2000. A real “climate catastrophe” hyperventilates the Urgewald report! And so applying global warming theory, which claims […]
