Just Dying To Save The Planet…Fuel-Efficient Cars Fail in Crash Tests. And: White German Christmases Not More Seldom!

Two blurbs today, before I get ready for this evening’s New Year’s celebrations. Environmentally friendly cars as death boxes First is that people who drive small cars in order to save the climate are seriously putting themselves at risk, or even dying if involved in a serious accident. That’s the result of newly conducted crash tests […]

Climatologists’ Projections Defied…25-Year Trend For German Winters Shows Cooling! …”Snow Has Not Disappeared”

In 2014, Germany and parts of Europe will be seeing their warmest year ever since temperature recording began in earnest late in the 19th century. The media and alarmists are giddy about this, even though most of it is due to a global weather pattern that worked to deliver an almost steady stream of warm […]

New York Times Dot Earth’s Andrew Revkin Suddenly Believes In “Natural” Causes (And Not Man-Made Ones)

A couple of days ago I wrote a piece aimed at encouraging readers to consider a diet change to improve their health for the coming new year, and to ignore the consensus high-carb/lowfat diet. My own health has improved dramatically since I stopped listening to the preventive maintenance advice peddled by the boys at the expensive […]

2014/15 Super El Niño Gets "The Kiss Of Death"...Climatologists' Prediction Of Warming Planet Crumbles Again

2014/15 Super El Niño Gets “The Kiss Of Death”…Climatologists’ Prediction Of Warming Planet Crumbles Again

Joe Bastardi’s latest Weatherbell Saturday Summary is out. This week the high-profile, veteran meteorologist has some interesting comments on sea surface temperatures and this year’s once highly ballyhooed “super El Niño“. Remember how earlier this year a number a climatology experts were all giddy because somehow they had managed to convince themselves that a “super El […]

A New Year’s Resolution To Consider…And How “Consensus Science” May Have Almost Killed Andrew Revkin

As New Year’s Day approaches here’s something off-topic, but could make a real difference to your health. It has to mine. Probably the most common New Year’s resolution one hears is “I’m going to get back in shape“. Unfortunately it is also the one that fails the most often. A year ago, at the age of […]

Germany's Environment Minister Declares Energiewende "Mission Accomplished" In Stunning CNN Propaganda Op-Ed

Germany’s Environment Minister Declares Energiewende “Mission Accomplished” In Stunning CNN Propaganda Op-Ed

CNN recently published an online op-ed by Germany’s Federal Minister of Environment, Barbara Hendricks, titled: How Germany banishes climate myths, where she brazenly declares Germany’s Energiewende (transition to renewable energies) a success story. Nothing could be further from the truth. In reality her op-ed piece ranks right up there close to George W. Bush’s famous “Mission […]

"Winter With An Exclamation Mark"! Meteorologists Warn Of Blizzard Conditions, 30°C Temperature Plunge In Europe!

“Winter With An Exclamation Mark”! Meteorologists Warn Of Blizzard Conditions, 30°C Temperature Plunge In Europe!

So far it’s been a very mild winter across Central Europe. Just days ago, with temperatures in the double-digit Celsius range, meteorologists and media wrote off the possibility of a white Christmas. Gradually all the snow being a “thing of the past” talk was starting up. Wrong again. So unpredictable can chaotic systems like weather and […]

Associate Professor Kim Cobb's Obsession...Ignores 95% Of Climate Models Running Too Hot

Associate Professor Kim Cobb’s Obsession…Ignores 95% Of Climate Models Running Too Hot

What About Climate Change? By Ed Caryl In last week’s on-line issue of the Georgia Tech Alumni Magazine (Volume 90, Number 4), Judith Curry and Kim Cobb contributed their thoughts on the issue of climate change in two short essays. Photo: Kim Cobb; source: Georgia Tech. These essays were obviously intended to oppose each other. […]

Climate Custers’ Last Stand…Top German Climate Scientists See No End To “Warming Pause”. Now Concede Oceans A “Major Climate Factor”

Germany’s so-called Climate Consortium here has published a telling statement on this year’s “record warm year” in Germany and the reasons behind it. The Climate Consortium represents the collective position of all Germany’s scientific climate institutes. Although the statement claims the record year “fits very well in the picture of a long-term global temperature increase” it […]

World’s Second Largest Reinsurer Swiss Re Sees Huge Drop In Losses From Natural/Manmade Catastrophes In 2014!

The online Swiss Handelszeitung (Trade News) reports on the world’s second largest reinsurer Swiss Re, and on the losses from natural catastrophes for 2014. Let’s recall that natural catastrophes are supposedly becoming more and more frequent due to the alleged man-made climate worsening from manmade CO2 emissions.

The Great Cooling Of Arctic Sea Ice Projections: Having Been Burned, Scientists Far More Cautious With Projections

Dirk Notz of the Hamburg-based Max-Planck-Institute: Arctic sea ice could again expand in the coming decade By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Over the past 30 years Arctic sea ice has shrunk considerably.

NTZ Stings A Nerve…Rockefeller Philanthropy’s “Climate Nexus” Lashes Out At Harvard Astrophysicist Soon

Recently I published an opinion by Harvard astrophysicist Willie Soon concerning the dubious “2014 hottest year ever” claim. That post is doing very well and continues to be widely shared in the social media – so much so that the piece stung a sensitive nerve over at Climate Nexus. But instead of rebutting Dr. Soon point-by-point, […]

Christian Schönwiese, Hans Von Storch: “2°C Target” Purely Political One…From “Politicians Disguised As Scientists”

Rainer Hoffmann of the German language Klimamanifest has produced a short clip on the 2°C target we keep hearing about. According to activists the globe mustn’t be allowed to warm up more than 2°C over its 1900 level, otherwise it will tip into an irreversible and unstoppable spiral to climate catastrophe that will lead to […]

Lima's UN Climate Conference The Most Disgraceful, Destructive Ever...Time To Disband The Traveling Parasitic UN Circus

Lima’s UN Climate Conference The Most Disgraceful, Destructive Ever…Time To Disband The Traveling Parasitic UN Circus

It’s clear: none of the intended aims were reached during the two-week UN mega climate conference in Lima. Some baby steps were made. And of course they are being sold to the public as important progress on the road to a binding treaty in Paris next year. No one believes it. What was achieved, unfortunately, were […]

Lima Conference Close To Collapse? German Enivironment Minister Already Departed Lima Yesterday…”Hangover Mood”
