Germany October 2015 Almost 2°C Below Climate Model Projections! …0.8°C Colder Than 1981 – 2010 Mean

Germany’s DWD national weather service now presents the preliminary weather results for October 2015 in Germany, a region that finds itself in the middle of Europe.

UN Sham Science Reaches New Dimension of Absurdity: Bug Guts/Meat Are Good For Us, But Livestock Meat Is Toxic!

UN Sham Science Reaches New Dimension of Absurdity: Bug Guts/Meat Are Good For Us, But Livestock Meat Is Toxic!

The UN World Health Organization has begun paving the way for steering the global population away from one of nature’s most nutritious foods for the human species: meat from livestock. Those of us who follow climate science know exactly how the sham works: Select only the studies that support the theory, dismiss all others, and claim the […]

Satellite Datasets Show 2015 Not At All Record Year. Are El Nino Years Getting Cooler?

Nonsense…With Gravy On Top! By wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de [translated, edited by P. Gosselin] Only the repeatedly and retroactively falsified datasets of the NOAA/NCDC, NASA/GISS and MetOffice/Hadley/CRU tell us that the global warming continues on. The global warming “pause”has been simply calculated away…. The unaltered (unfalsified) satellite measurements of the lower global troposphere (LT) by RSS and UAH […]

German Power Grid Network Prices To Jump 4% In Early 2016, Further Straining Poor Households

German climate alarmism and activism website Klimaretter here reports that beginning in January 2016 German power grid prices will go up 4%.

Now Dawning On The Washington Post: Scientific Consensus Not Worth The Paper It’s Printed On

A few days ago the online Washington Post here had an excellent feature story by Peter Whorisky on the long-held belief that food products rich in saturated fats, like whole milk, were a risk to human health. It turns out that this decades-long belief, once backed by a “overwhelming consensus” among scientists, is now appearing to […]

Evidence Of Water On Mars Supports Svensmark’s Theory Of Cosmic Radiation As A Major Climate Factor

Climate change on Mars – is it analogous to that on Earth? By Dr. Dietrich E. Koelle [Translated/edited by P Gosselin] Fig. 1: Structure of the Milky Way (Wikipedia, NASA/JPL-Caltech/R. Hurt) Drawing conclusions on the development of the Earth’s climate from climate change on Mars would be quite difficult because there is no concrete data from […]

Potsdam Institute Director Schellnhuber Presents 60,000 Year Predictions! …A Prophet, Or Just Stark Raving Mad?

Rudolf Kipp of the Science Skeptical site has a post on the latest climate predictions of Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, the Director of the alarmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).

Social Benefit Of Carbon Is Ten To A Hundred Times The Estimated Social Cost

Social Benefit Of Carbon Is Ten To A Hundred Times The Estimated Social Cost

By Ed Caryl We see many articles and posts about the Social Cost of Carbon (SCC) as an excuse for carbon taxes, but nothing about the Social Benefits of Carbon (SBC). The very reason civilization is consuming fossil fuels and producing carbon dioxide is ignored. Carbon-based fuels drive civilization and have done so since man’s […]
