German Scientists: Models Showing Bitter Winters Are Ahead For Europe …Current Solar Cycle Weakest In 200 Years

The sun in August 2015 and the climatic UV amplifier in the stratosphere By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) In August 2015 solar activity was also weak, only 71% of the mean activity that is usual for this month into the cycle. The solar sunspot number (SSN) was 64.6. The mean […]

Political Fraud – Van Ypersele Tries Using “Climate Change” As Excuse For Massive Middle East Policy Incompetence!

Nothing puts the spotlight on Europe’s and USA’s foreign policy debacle better than the Syria crisis and the waves of “refugees” pouring into Europe. It is a policy catastrophe that will surely multiply in size over the coming months and years ahead, and especially puts European security a risk. Naturally Europe’s leading politicians are desperate […]

Latest Study Indicates Solar Variability "Dominant Influence On Temperature" ...CMIP5 Models Fail

Latest Study Indicates Solar Variability “Dominant Influence On Temperature” …CMIP5 Models Fail

Recently a blogger spouted off about the science of the sun’s role on climate, and so the latest paper on the topic published in Earth-Science Reviews last month is timely. Once again we have a paper, authored by Soon et al, that indicates the sun’s powerful impact on our climate and that CO2 is a minor player. Moreover the […]

Solar Technology's Glaring Inferiority ...Phileas Fogg's 19th Century Balloon Beats 21st Century Solar Impulse 2 By Over 300 Days!

Solar Technology’s Glaring Inferiority …Phileas Fogg’s 19th Century Balloon Beats 21st Century Solar Impulse 2 By Over 300 Days!

A couple of readers have brought up the latest on the Solar Impulse 2 project, the solar-powered plane designed by a couple of Europeans to showcase the “unlimited” potential of solar energy in a “solo flight” around the world. Here’s the latest news. The Solar Impulse 2 plane was launched from Abu Dhabi, amid much media fanfare, […]

2 More Papers! RUSSIAN ICE CORES Show Powerful Relationship Between Solar Activity And Antarctic Climate!

German scientists Lüning and Vahrenholt bring up two recent papers on what by now is obvious to almost everyone. ================================= The sun drives the climate By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) Antarctica is a fantastic place for a research laboratory. A number of research stations are scattered […]

4! New! Papers! Show Sun’s Impact On Global Climate. German Scientists: Sun Is “A Major Climate Factor”

Personally I find it difficult to believe some people are unable to comprehend the sun’s impact on our climate, especially when something like 99 point-something-percent of the earth’s energy comes from the sun. Even a vegetable notices when a cloud blocks out the sun, when the sun sets, or when it doesn’t get very high above […]

Leading Climate Scientists Blast Letter By 20 Academics As “Naïve” …”Implied Coercion” Damages Field Of Science.

A couple of days ago I posted a comment given by Joe Bastardi on the 20 academics who penned a latter to the Department of Justice calling for an investigation of dissident views on climate science and their supporters. It has since turned out that at least one of these academics is really in the […]

VW Needs The Mann, Jones & Muller Scandal Action Team To Implement The “Mike’s Nature Trick” Defense Strategy

The news of VW seemingly being caught red-handed rigging emissions tests of its diesel-powered vehicles has hit like a bombshell. The Wolfsburg, Germany based automaker is reeling like never before. The U.S. Department of Justice is launching a criminal probe, and potential penalties of up to $18 billion may be imposed. The criminal prosecution of VW […]

Joe Bastardi Sees Possible "Nasty Winter Shaping Up" In Europe As North Atlantic Cold Expands!

Joe Bastardi Sees Possible “Nasty Winter Shaping Up” In Europe As North Atlantic Cold Expands!

Veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi has another excellent Saturday Summary up at his Weatherbell Analytics site. At first he makes some philosophical points on why free markets are so crucial and why so many Catholics disagree with the latest Pope on climate change policy. That aside, Joe takes a peek at the upcoming European winter. The […]

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi On Scandalous Letter By 20 Academics: "Reeks of Paranoia"..."Attempt To Silence Dissent"

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi On Scandalous Letter By 20 Academics: “Reeks of Paranoia”…”Attempt To Silence Dissent”

With 20 academics sending a letter to the US Department of Justice, it’s highly ironic how those who are totally wrong (see chart) are demanding a criminal investigation of those who are correct! Original chart: John Christy, U of Alabama. I asked veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi of Weatherbell Analytics to comment on the news of […]

Fed Up! Duke University Researcher Resigns: “High Number” Of Scientific Articles “Published With Fraudulent Data”!

At Facebook Jean-Francois Garlépy, a Duke University researcher, expresses how he has become fed up with the inner workings of western academia and is resigning. Hat-tip: reader Magnum. He writes: This week, I resigned from my position at Duke University with no intent to solicit employment in state-funded academic research positions in any foreseeable future. Many reasons […]

Former NOAA Meteorologist David Dilley Suspects Suppression Of Science At The AMS!

Two days ago David Dilley wrote about the widespread suppression of alternative scientific views on climate change at the academic level, even though these skeptical views are far more in line with observations than the climate model projections. Today he comments on the apparent suppression of science at the American Meteorological Association (AMS). ======================================== The […]

What Using NONE Of The World’s Fossil Fuels Would Do To Human Society …Hundreds Of Millions Dead In Just Weeks!

The latest dubious climate scare story just out involves a far-fetched thought-spiel that creates a scenario of what would happen if all the world’s fossil fuels were burned – that scenario all based on an inflated CO2 climate sensitivity and crystal ball quality science. The theorized result would be the possible melting of Antarctic ice and a 120+meter rise […]
