Expedition On The Cheap? Did Organizers Recklessly, Negligently Put Lives And Property At Risk?

Expedition On The Cheap? Did Organizers Recklessly, Negligently Put Lives And Property At Risk?

With the MS Akademik Shokalskiy research vessel firmly embedded in ice and costs of the mammoth rescue effort mounting, the “scientific” Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE) led by Professor Chris Turney has morphed into a debacle that has put dozens of lives and property at risk. In under-estimating the world’s harshest environment and through slipshod planning […]

Veteran Meteorologist Calls Climate Scientists’ Claims That More Sea Ice Proves Global Warming “Just Really Despicable”

At his Saturday Summary (12/28 here) veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi comments on how humiliated global warming alarmist scientists are trying to save face by claiming that all the new polar sea ice proves global warming. Antarctic sea ice has been approaching record highs and embarrassed alarmist scientists are scrambling to explain why. After presenting his weather information, at […]

German Public Television Stuns Its Readers, Concedes Medieval Warm Period May Have Been 0.5°C Warmer Than Today!

German Public Television Stuns Its Readers, Concedes Medieval Warm Period May Have Been 0.5°C Warmer Than Today!

In Germany climate science used to be considered completely settled. Global temperatures had been pretty much steady for a thousand years before skyrocketing upwards as soon as man really started industrializing about 150 years ago, Germans were told again and again. But today Germany’s major media are beginning to realize that this view is perhaps quite naïve […]

Leading German Daily: “Also The Ice Breaker Gets Stuck!” Unable To Rescue Global-Warming Boatpeople From Sea Ice

Germany’s online Bild daily here reports on how a Chinese ice breaker trying to reach the sea ice-trapped Akademik Shokalskiy research vessel was stopped by thick sea ice:  “Also The Ice Breaker Gets Stuck!” The 74 passengers who have now been trapped 4 days in unexpected Antarctic sea ice are made up of scientists, tourists, and crew members.

December 2013 Arctic Sea Ice Volume Now Less Than September Volume Of 2006, Warmist Expert Claims

We know that many warmists just don’t know what they are taking about. Remember Al Gore claiming the center of the earth was 1 million degrees? Another classic example I just happened to come across is one by warmist Ramez Naam who runs a blogsite, which had not been known to me previously. In his […]

Climate-Science Boatpeople, In Search Of Global Warming Signs, Trapped In Thousands Of Kilometers Of Sea Ice!

Climate-Science Boatpeople, In Search Of Global Warming Signs, Trapped In Thousands Of Kilometers Of Sea Ice!

The metaphor just couldn’t be more fitting: desperate true believers of global warming/accelerating polar ice melt now find themselves trapped by thousands of square kilometers of summertime sea ice that wasn’t supposed to be there. No picture could better symbolize and communicate the intellectual bankruptcy and disillusionment of a faithful group who refuse to believe they […]

German Weather Service “White Christmases Have Not Become Less Frequent In Last 100 Years”

Alarmists would like to have everyone think that “white Christmases” were normal back in the days before global warming and that human behavior has ruined it all. But Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski looks back at the statistics of snow on Christmas Day and finds that a white Christmas in Germany happened with a higher frequency […]

Queen (Finally!) Grants Posthumous Pardon To Alan Turing…Treatment Was Once The Consensus Of The Science!

The Telegraph here has the story about what was in my eyes one of the most abhorrent crimes ever committed by science…in this case the chemical castration of a brilliant mathematician and war hero only because his sexual preference went against what was considered the moral, psychiatric, medical and scientific consensus of the time, i.e. homosexuality […]

Defining CO2 As A Pollutant Is The Worst Kind Of Lie…We Really Don’t Have Much In The Atmosphere

A Christmas message for alarmists By Ed Caryl I am constantly struck by the extremes that the alarmists will reach attempting to convince the rest of us that we should abandon our comfortable life-styles and live in fuel poverty, burning our corn in our cars, eschewing all use of fuels that have accumulated in the […]

German Scientists: NOAA 2013 Hurricane Prediction Completely Missed The Barn…Not A Single Major Hurricane!

Disappearing Excuses...Aerosols Likely Not Behind The Warming Pause

Disappearing Excuses…Aerosols Likely Not Behind The Warming Pause

Why The Hiatus? By Ed Caryl One of the climatologist’s explanations for the 17-year hiatus in global warming is the effect of aerosols. This explanation seems weak for the simple reason that we don’t see aerosols in this time period. We do see the impact of aerosols from volcanic activity in previous periods, however. Here […]

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi On NASA November Temperature: "A Fraudulent Report... Tampering With Data"

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi On NASA November Temperature: “A Fraudulent Report… Tampering With Data”

Joe Bastardi at his Saturday Summary here tells us what’s already known: The claim that November 2013 was the hottest month ever is fraudulent.
