Science With “97% Consensus” and “99% Certainty” Sees 0% Of Its Scientists Willing To Bet On It!

About 10 days ago a press release by the Alfred Wegener Institute gave readers the impression that the Arctic sea ice would keep on melting. In response I sent e-mails to the two scientists cited in it, Marcel Nicolaus and Lars Kaleschke, and asked if they would advise a bet on it. I even posted […]

Climate Change Delusion Has Always Been Popular Throughout History...And A Money-Making, Power-Grabbing Scam

Climate Change Delusion Has Always Been Popular Throughout History…And A Money-Making, Power-Grabbing Scam

Climate Change As A Popular Delusion By Ed Caryl “N’en déplaise à ces fous nommés sages de Grèce, En ce monde il n’est point de parfaite sagesse; Tous les hommes sont fous, et malgré tous leurs soîns Ne diffèrent entre eux que du plus ou du moins.” “No offense to those crazy appointed sages of […]

Happy 90th Birthday, Dear S. Fred Singer! Alles Gute Zum Geburtstag!

Happy 90th Birthday, Dear S. Fred Singer! Alles Gute Zum Geburtstag!

Very few have shaped the climate science debate and forced the unwanted discussion on climate change like Prof. S. Fred Singer has. Photo: Heartland Instiute One of the differences I’ve noticed between the USA and Germany is how birthdays are regarded and celebrated, especially the “round ones” ending with a zero, mostly beginning at age […]

Antarctic Sea Ice On Turbo-Steroids...Mutates To A Behemoth...Sets Quantum All-Time Record High Extent!

Antarctic Sea Ice On Turbo-Steroids…Mutates To A Behemoth…Sets Quantum All-Time Record High Extent!

In track and field a sprinter setting a new world record in the 100 or 200-meter dash by a few hundredths of a second is already considered a sensation. Now imagine a sprinter breaking the 100 or 200-meter dash record by a whole half second, or a pole-vaulter beating the old record not by an […]

Russian National Television Film Warns Of Cooling…Senior Woods Hole Scientist Calls Arctic Model Runs “Far From Ideal”!

In today’s post you will find a Russian National Television film below, viewed only 70 times so far at Youtube, where Russian scientists express doubt on the IPCC’s version of the CO2 story, and warn of a coming cold period. It is the kind of film alarmists do not want the public to see.  It […]

Forbes: “Energiewende Is The Worst Possible Example Of How To Implement An Energy Transition”

Forbes summarizes Germany’s Energiewende: It’s tragicomic. To summarize: Energiewende is the worst possible example of how to implement an energy transition. The overzealous push for the wrong generation technology has hurt citizens, businesses, and the environment all at the same time. I want to make it clear that I’m not saying we should abandon solar. It […]

Max Planck Institute Arctic Sea Ice Expert: "I Wouldn't Put Money On Further Decrease Of Ice Cover"!

Max Planck Institute Arctic Sea Ice Expert: “I Wouldn’t Put Money On Further Decrease Of Ice Cover”!

About 10 days ago Germany’s Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) put out a press release on global sea ice. In it AWI scientist Marcel Nicolaus and Lars Kaleschke of the Hamburg Cluster of Excellence for Climate Research (CliSAP) confirmed the “long-term downward trend in the Arctic.” Somewhat annoyed by that conclusion, I sent the 2 scientists an […]

EIKE: German Power Grid More Vulnerable Than Ever…”On The Brink Of Widespread Blackouts”!

There was a time when Germany’s power was mostly generated by the traditional sources of coal, nuclear, oil, natural gas and hydro. These sources were reliable and keeping the power grid under control was a routine matter. Germany’s power grid was among the most stable worldwide. But then came Germany’s renewable energy feed-in act, and […]

Spiegel Writes Cook’s 97% Consensus Claims “Are Deceiving The Public”…”A Failed Call To Action”

Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski, an educated geologist, presents an article today at the online Spiegel explaining how the once highly ballyhooed “97% consensus” claim is in fact deceptive and “a half-truth”: Failed Scientists’ Call To Action at UN Climate Conference: The 97 Percent Trap. Bojanowski begins by describing how last year even President Obama […]

World’s 6th Largest Newspaper Displays DiCaprio’s Hypocrisy…”Private Jets” and “Luxury Mega-Yachts”

Online German daily Bild, the world’s sixth largest daily in print by circulation, reported on the climate demonstration in New York and on the stars who appeared, foremost Leonardo DiCaprio. At first Bild describes the event as the “largest climate demonstration of all time” and how the event drew more than 300,000 in New York, […]

Spiegel: False Extinction Claim “A Problem For British Royal Society”…IPCC “Credibility In Question More Than Ever”!

Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski writes here about the grave error committed by the British Royal Society’s in its false claim that the Rhachistia aldabrae snail had gone extinct and that it had been due to global warming. Full story here in English. Hat-tip: Reader DirkH. Bojanowski calls the news of the extinction being false “good […]

NOAA Devolving To An Orwellian Political Farce...Veteran Meteorologist: "Fox Is Guarding The Henhouse"

NOAA Devolving To An Orwellian Political Farce…Veteran Meteorologist: “Fox Is Guarding The Henhouse”

The NOAA recently declared several months of this year as being the hottest on record, standing out in stark contrast to other datasets and observed reality. The NOAA claims seem to be so odd that it has become the target of heavy criticism and ridicule (see here, here, here and here), especially with the backdrop of […]

Climate Gatekeeper/Editor At German Language Wikipedia Would Even Make William Connelley Blush

Unbelievable but true: Political science Phd and former Greenpeace activist tailors Wikipedia climate entries to suit IPCC line By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) Recall the Wikipedia scandal where an IPCC follower heightened the alarmism in English-language articles in the well-known online encyclopedia (See our blog report “Climate-falsifier Connolley: The man […]

Just How Sure Are The Sea Ice "Experts" About The Arctic Melt Continuing? Looks Very Close To Zero...

Just How Sure Are The Sea Ice “Experts” About The Arctic Melt Continuing? Looks Very Close To Zero…

Recently the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany released a press clipping about polar sea ice, obstinately refusing to acknowledge that there is a trend change happening in the Arctic. It wrote: The area of sea ice in the Arctic fell to a summer minimum of around 5.0 million square kilometres this year, which […]

“Self-Inflicted Apocalypse Fascination”! Germany’s Leading Daily Fed Up With End-Of-World Scenarios, Climate Catastrophe!

Germany’s major media takes a landmark step, one could argue. At their Die kalte Sonne site, geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and chemist Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt point out a recent article appearing in Germany’s no. 1 daily by circulation (2.5 million), Bild. Apparently the Axel Springer publication is getting fed up with all the global warming catastrophe […]

German DWD Weather Service Reverses Earlier Climate Forecasts, Thus Confirm They Are Loads Of Bull-Manure

Some years ago German “climate experts” were all forecasting hot, dry summers for Germany. But now, after a series of wet summers, they are telling us we have to expect wet summers in the future. Nobody knows what to believe anymore. One day they say prepare for this, and the next day they say prepare for […]

Mainstream Journalism Remains Catatonic As Antarctica Sees Year-Long Series Of Record High Sea Ice Extents

Mainstream Journalism Remains Catatonic As Antarctica Sees Year-Long Series Of Record High Sea Ice Extents

Here’s proof that mainstream media journalism is either sloppy and just too lazy to check the data themselves, or is catatonically stuck in their now 18-year long illusion of global warming. Recently a number of leading media outlets trumpeted (loudly) scary claims of “accelerating polar ice melt”. For example last May Germany’s leading online financial daily […]

Spooky Pause…Solar Activity Now Has Leading German (Warmist) Science Journalist Asking About “Threat Of A Little Ice Age”

Science journalist Michael Odenwald at the German news weekly FOCUS used to be quite the warmist, and maybe he still is. But his latest article here tells us that he may be opening up to other climate change explanations: natural factors such as solar activity. Solar activity has quieted over the last years.
