IPCC Ignores Its Own Data…Attempts To Incite Global Green Coup d’Etat Led By Alarmist Scientists

The IPCC’s tone, amplified by the media, speaks volumes: With its latest report, the UN organization is attempting to incite and lead a global coup d’état – with the main focus on Europe and North America. Predictably the media in Germany are reporting today on the release of the IPCC’s Working Group II report and the […]

University of Graz Study Finds Vegetarians Are Unhealthier, More Mentally Disturbed Than Meat-Lovers

University of Graz Study Finds Vegetarians Are Unhealthier, More Mentally Disturbed Than Meat-Lovers

It’s no secret that many vegetarians are also radical environmentalists and climate alarmists who are obsessed and hysterical about the planet burning up. Perhaps the University of Graz in Austria has discovered one reason why: their “unhealthy” diet. Study shows that big meat-eaters are healthiest.

DAILY CALLER Book Review: "Scientists Conspired To Hide Obvious Flaws" ... "Endless Series Of Hobgoblins"

DAILY CALLER Book Review: “Scientists Conspired To Hide Obvious Flaws” … “Endless Series Of Hobgoblins”

“Uncovering deceptions in the climate change debate For more than a decade, the Heartland Institute has tried to explain to the public, in courteous terms, that the idea of a human-caused global warming catastrophe is a delusion, and that its proponents should not be allowed to waste the world’s economic resources through arrogant efforts to […]

Stunning Absurdity From Germany’s Energy Feed-In Act…Wind-Park Operators Earn Most When Turbines Are Idle!

Rudolf Kipp at the skeptical website Science Skeptical here writes about one of the incredible (but very real) absurdities of Germany’s “EEG” renewable energy feed-in act, which forces power companies to buy all green power that gets produced, whether needed or not, and even power that doesn’t get produced. ===================================== When the wind turbine is idle… By Rudolf […]

Spiegel Reports: “Leading Scientist Leaves IPCC …Dispute Surrounding UN Climate Panel Escalates”

The German online Spiegel here has a piece by science journalist Axel Bojanowski about Richard Tol quitting the IPCC in protest: “Alleged panic-making: Leading scientist leaves the head of the IPCC. The dispute surrounding the UN IPCC escalates.” Spiegel writes how Tol complains that the IPCC has “wiped away decisive formulations” from the final version and […]

Plots Show It Should Be Clear That Something Else Besides CO2 Is In Charge...CO2 Correlates Poorly

Plots Show It Should Be Clear That Something Else Besides CO2 Is In Charge…CO2 Correlates Poorly

CO2 or Ocean Cycles? By Ed Caryl We are all aware (or should be) of the warming that took place from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. The calamitologists are firmly convinced that this rise in temperature was due to rising CO2 in the same period. The lukewarmists think it was a combination of factors that […]

Analysis Shows Solar Modules Cause More Greenhouse Gas Emissions Than Modern Coal Power Plants!

It turns out that because of the emissions of extraordinarily potent greenhouse gases NF3 and SF6 and energy during the manufacture of solar modules, solar energy ends up being worse for the climate than burning coal (assuming the global warming hypothesis is valid). A Swiss engineer has made a thorough analysis of the greenhouse gas emissions […]

Spiegel: IPCC-Backpedal On Species Extinction…”Astonishingly Great Doubt Over Earlier Predictions…Acute Lack Of Data”

Alarmists like claiming that a bit of global warming can lead to mass-scale species extinctions and even threatens the very survival of human civilization. It’s one of the media’s favorite scare stories after sea level rise and super storms. It turns out that the IPCC is now having “great doubts” about that. Yet another scare-story gets debunked! […]

Daily Energy From “Negligible” Solar Irradiance Variation Turns Out To Be Far More Than 400,000 A-Bombs!

Remember how alarmists say that the variation in solar irradiance was too small to have any real impact on the earth’s climate, and thus gets neglected by the IPCC? Reader GuarionexSandoval has written a comment which I’m elevating to a post, see below. It too shows that if the variation solar irradiance from the 11-year cycle […]

Rash Of Weather Extremes In 1936 …Before 15 Billion “Hiroshima Bombs Worth Of Heat” Were Added To Our Climate!

We keep hearing from alarmists that if we sacrifice by giving up carbon based fuels and bring atmospheric CO2 concentrations below 350 ppm, then we will get nice weather with far fewer extremes – like in the 1930s. Reader Jimbo however shows that this is all bogus. Now he has compiled a list of extreme […]

SkS Hiroshima-Bomb Heat-Clock  Fraud ...Claim 2.1 Billion Climate Ground-Zeros, Yet Can't Find A Single One Of Them!

SkS Hiroshima-Bomb Heat-Clock Fraud …Claim 2.1 Billion Climate Ground-Zeros, Yet Can’t Find A Single One Of Them!

The alarmists at Skeptical Science put up a “Hiroshima Bomb Heat Clock” claiming that the earth’s climate system has “accumulated” over 2 billion Hiroshima bombs worth of thermonuclear heat since 1998. This heat, they say, will pop out in the future and make us all very sorry. Image cropped yesterday from Skeptical Science. Yet, despite the hundreds […]

German City Of Bremen Calls For A Green Police - To Enter Private Homes And Eliminate Electric Heaters

German City Of Bremen Calls For A Green Police – To Enter Private Homes And Eliminate Electric Heaters

Most of us already suspect that environmentalists are dictatorial wolves dressed in the democracy sheepskin. Despite all the lip service they pay to justice and liberty, they are really all about state power and regulation. So it is with Germany’s authoritarian statists and greens, who not long ago called for the enactment of a nationwide […]

Decarbonization Can Only Have Marginal Effects On Future Climate At Best. Ultra-High Price For Negligible Results

Decarbonization Can Only Have Marginal Effects On Future Climate At Best. Ultra-High Price For Negligible Results

By Ed Hoskins This short illustrated essay questions government efforts to combat global warming and climate change from three points of view: 1. The influence of CO2 on temperature 2. Decarbonisation outcomes 3. Politics This essay examines quantifiable and hopefully non-contentious aspects of the question. 1. Influence of carbon dioxide CO2 on temperature The temperature-increasing capacity of […]

Earth’s Surface Temperature Regulated By Natural Heat Dissipation Mechanisms In The Atmosphere

On Climate Sensitivity – Thunderstorms By Ed Caryl Everyone Is Correct – Just At Different Times. Since the time of the patron saint of Climatologists, Svante August Arrhenius, climate researchers have been attempting to pin down climate sensitivity, the amount of warming that various constituents will cause when present in the atmosphere. This is not […]

German Professor Fritz Vahrenholt Calls Claimed Green Jobs Wonder A “Labeling Fraud”!

I’m short on time today, so this post will be a bit brief. Germany’s Energiewende and renewable feed-in act are often touted as huge, jobs-creating success stories. But as the prices for electricity skyrocket into the stratosphere and renewable energy companies bite the dust all over Europe, it’s turning out that the green jobs wonder […]
