Models Wrong Again…Sea Ice Break-Up Caused In Large Part By Storm-Generated Oceanic Wave And Wind Dynamics!
By P Gosselin on 31. May 2014
Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski has a fascinating piece on what likely causes most of the sea ice to break up. The Spiegel introduction: Sea ice is disappearing in the Arctic, around the Antarctic it is growing – today’s conventional climate models are unable to explain this contradiction. One effect has just been measured by […]
Veteran Meteorolgist: N. Hemisphere 10-Year Snow Cover At Record High…German Winters “Considerably Colder”!
By P Gosselin on 30. May 2014
Veteran meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls of the European Institute Climate and Energy (EIKE) has sent over some slides from a presentation showing Germany’s mean temperature has been cooling over the last decades. A couple of days ago a certain reader named Neville (Warming-In-Our-Time) (or was it Neven? whatever…) was complaining that the Eastern Alps were not representative […]
Greenpeace: “Executives Of Major Fossil Fuel Companies Could Face Personal Liability For Funding Climate Denialism”!
By P Gosselin on 29. May 2014
Attention skeptics. Greenpeace International is calling to make executives liable for funding “climate denialism“. This would be tantamount to abusing the legal system as a weapon to harass and shut down freedom of science and the fundamental human right of freedom of expression. Are bloggers next? The next obvious step would be to go after bloggers […]

Warming Scientists Humiliated! Strong Cooling Seizes European Alps… “Considerably Colder Winters” Since 1988/89!
By P Gosselin on 27. May 2014
Fritz Vahrenholt’s and Sebastian Lüning’s Die kalte Sonne website here directs our attention to a story appearing at the www.zukunft-skisport.at website. It writes that by every measure winters in the European Alps have gotten “considerably colder” over the last 26 years. Alps have gotten colder and snowier over last 26 years, data show. Not long […]

Berlin-based leftist daily TAZ here reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel isn’t going to bother attending the Ban Ki-Moon initiated climate conference in New York this coming September. The TAZ adds this has been “confirmed by a government spokesman“. Moon personally invited all world leaders, asking them to attend with “ambition and responsibility” in order […]

Settled science becomes unsettled again. The online Swiss Berner Zeitung here has an article reporting on how scientists have underestimated the role on climate that the globe’s semi-arid regions are playing. According to the report, climate change has lead to the Nullarbor Plain of southern Australia to be the greenest it has ever been in 30 […]
Paging George Clooney (Again!)…97% Of All Doctors Recommended Carbohydrate-Rich Diets – For Diabetics!
By P Gosselin on 24. May 2014
Lately I’ve been reading up a lot on nutrition, and I’m finding out that the riff-raff and fraud that are rampant in the food and pharmaceutical industry is even more cold-blooded than the playground kind of stuff we see in “climate science”. It really is that bad. Recall how George Clooney once asked (paraphrasing) “if 99% of doctors […]

At their Die kalte Sonne site here, Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning write how a philosophy professor and a communication professor tried to portray climate science skeptics as ‘conspiracy theorists’ and how their attempt backfired. It’s the latest example of German academia trying to smear those who express other views made in the true spirit of science. ********************************* Scientists […]

By Ed Caryl On May 17th, Willis Eschenbach posted “Sailing on the Solar Wind” on WUWT. In it he used a graph of the daily solar wind data since 1963. I wish to thank Willis for his effort in tabulating the daily data AND for making it available for the rest of us. That graph […]

For German readers who have not yet picked up a copy of the climate science skeptical book “Die kalte Sonne” by Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning, the last printed copies are available directly from the authors and from Amazon. The second printing of “Die kalte Sonne” of 25,000 copies is now almost sold out. The […]
UKIP Party About To Get Company In Brussels…German Climate-Skeptic AfD Party Rising In Opinion Polls
By P Gosselin on 21. May 2014
European parliamentary elections are slated to take place May 22-25 and parties critical of the Europe’s course on a variety of issues, ranging from the euro-currency, bailouts and climate change, are faring well at the polls and have the establishment spooked. One good example of a climate policy/science-skeptical party is the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), which […]
German Professor Fritz Vahrenholt: “Alarmism Being Put In Its Place…Doubt Getting Broader, More Public”!
By P Gosselin on 20. May 2014
I sent an e-mail to Fritz Vahrenholt to ask his opinion on the Lennart Bengtsson mobbing scandal. Professor Vahrenholt is one of the fathers of the German environmental movement and co-author of the best-selling skeptic climate science book “Die kalte Sonne“. Climate science critic Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt says doubt on climate science is gaining. Photo credit: […]
Spiegel Sees “Shaken Science”, Collapsed Consensus In The Wake Of The Lennart Bengtsson Mobbing Scandal
By P Gosselin on 19. May 2014
Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski at the online Spiegel today features the controversy surrounding the mobbing of distinguished climate scientist Lennart Bengtsson. The story covers the events leading up to Bengtsson’s resignation from the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF). Spiegel writes: The consequences have shocked Bengtsson – and shaken science”. Concerning the rejection of Bengtsson’s […]
Explosive Scandal…”Climate Tricksters” Of German Government “Brazenly Falsify” UN IPCC Recommendations
By P Gosselin on 18. May 2014
This sunny, warm, spring Sunday morning in Germany brings us yet another spectacular scandal…one that shows how the Environment Ministry of the German government is not really interested in climate science after all, but in using the climate issue as an instrument to generate hundreds of millions of euros for funding pet environmental programs. Daniel […]
Leaked Memo On Climatology Exposes Growing Worry Within German Meteorological Society…”Unacceptable Unethical Developments”
By P Gosselin on 16. May 2014
A reader/professor has sent me an internal memo he recently obtained from a meteorologist and member of the Deutsche Meteorologische Gesellschaft [German Meteorological Society], abbreviated as DMG. Clearly grave concern is emerging over a large swath of the broader German meteorological-climatological community in the wake of the Lennart Bengtsson witchhunt. The memo was authored by a group of […]
William ‘Wikipedia’ Connelley Displays His True Class, Labels Distinguished Scientist Lennart Bengtsson “A Crybaby”
By P Gosselin on 15. May 2014
Wikipedia editor William Connelley displayed his true colors and confirmed the reason why Wikipedia is an unreliable source of information when it comes to climate science: extreme bias by editors. Ironically, Mr. Revisionist himself complained yesterday in a reader comment at NTZ about one of his other comments being delayed here at NTZ, demanding to know […]

The news of distinguished Swedish meteorology professor and former director of the renowned Max Planck Institute of Meteorology, Lennart Bengtsson, resigning from the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) advisory board just days after having joined it has spread through the blogosphere like wildfire. Psychological torment seems to be at play. His resignation in the face of intolerance will surely prompt […]
Bad Weather Reports: ‘Deutsche Wetterdienst’ Exaggerates Precipitation Trend 7-Fold To Produce Alarm
By P Gosselin on 13. May 2014
Producing alarmist scenarios and visions of climate horror are in vogue today at various weather and climate institutions. For example a recent study has just come out warning that Western Antarctic Ice Sheet is on the verge of a “chain reaction to collapse” – due to warming of course. (Never mind Antarctic sea ice is […]
Fritz Vahrenholt Labels IPCC “Doomsday, Panic-Spreaders…Alarmists”…”Will Have To Bear Ethical Responsibility”
By P Gosselin on 12. May 2014
Skeptic site Die kalte Sonne here features a video with leading German IPCC critic Fritz Vahrenholt taking part in a heated podium discussion last month. The event was held by the Steiermark Chamber of Commerce (WKO) in Graz, Austria. The topic: “Climate change under scrutiny”. The video can be seen at the WKO-website and at Youtube: […]
