Catastrophic Turbine Failures, Targeted Blackouts Plague German Power As Wind, Solar Energy Increase

Thanks in large part to wind and solar energy, not only have German electricity prices paid by consumers skyrocketed over the past years, thus casting a large number of homes into home fuel poverty, but also the supply itself is rapidly becoming precarious and unreliable. One problem is the stabilization of the power grid in […]

Tremendous Cooling Of Northern Hemisphere Sea Surface Temperatures ...Sharp Spell Of Global Cooling Ahead?

Tremendous Cooling Of Northern Hemisphere Sea Surface Temperatures …Sharp Spell Of Global Cooling Ahead?

Over the past months we’ve witnessed a powerful El Niño, a Pacific oceanic phase that brings warm sea surface temperatures along the equatorial Pacific. This El Niño has made 2015 global temperatures among the highest on the satellite record. But not only has the equatorial surface Pacific been warm, so has a vast part of […]

Now It’s Global Cooling! German Weekly Warns Scientists See “Mini Ice Age Coming In Just A Few Years”

The recent focus on (and hysteria over) the warm Christmas weather we saw over the North American east coast and Europe apparently is already fading and giving way to far more serious concerns – like the snow bowl blizzard of normally sunny El Paso, for example. Naturally it’s just silly to use one weather event […]

Top Climate Activist Lashes Out At Germany’s No-Result Climate Policy: “A First-Class Political Fraud”!

Despite all the big talk by German political leaders on cutting back CO2 and fighting climate change, the country’s actions speak far greater volumes. Germany’s CO2 reductions over the past few years have not gone anywhere – except up – despite two consecutive much warmer than normal weather years. These are the results coming from Germany’s […]

Joe Bastardi Blasts Claims 2015 Christmas Was US Warmest: "Ridiculous" ... "Lies And Deception" ..."False Missives"!

Joe Bastardi Blasts Claims 2015 Christmas Was US Warmest: “Ridiculous” … “Lies And Deception” …”False Missives”!

UPDATE: Tony Heller reminds us (and Bernie Sanders) how warm it was back in 1951 on New Years Eve: https://twitter.com/Goddardde =========================================================== At his always interesting Saturday Summary at Weatherbell Analytics here, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi confirms what Tony Heller’s Real Science posted a couple of days ago: December 24, 1955 was warmer than the impressively […]

Engineering Fiasco…Spiegel On Offshore Wind Parks: “Does Not Fulfill The Hopes Of Reliable Energy”!

Today I have a short but interesting report from Spiegel.de here concerning the performance of North Sea wind parks, which were once seen as the future backbone of Germany’s energy supply. Unfortunately things are not working out that way at all. Photo right: Bard Delivering only a tiny fraction of rated capacity Spiegel writes that Germany now […]

Mele Kalikimaka

Wishing everybody Mele Kalikimaka! This wonderful mild Christmas in some areas is in large part a gift from this year’s “El Nino” – so enjoy it! PS: I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all readers, alarmist or skeptic, for making 2015 another successful year at NTZ!

New Comprehensive Map By Scientists Confirms Medieval Warm Period Was Real And Global, Climate Models Faulty

New Comprehensive Map By Scientists Confirms Medieval Warm Period Was Real And Global, Climate Models Faulty

One of the biggest obstacles global warming alarmists have had to deal with is the inconvenient existence of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP), as there are reams of literature showing that this period was as warm or even warmer than today. Photo right: Fritz Vahrenholt (Die kalte Sonne) Yet, a number of global warming activists and alarmist […]

Zurich’s Record String Of SNOWLESS Christmases Was Set In 1940s! …No Trend Over Past 80 Years

The human memory is not very reliable at calculating trends from the past. This has something to do with extraordinary events often crowding out uneventful ones – and standing out. As time progresses the extraordinary events tend to get overly weighted and distort the memory. Balz Rittmeyer and Marc Fehr at this site here present […]

The Super-Collapsing El Niño! …NCEP CFSv2 N. Hemisphere Surface Temps Plummet 1°C In A Single Week!

The following is the English version of a post appearing at the German “wobleibtdieglobaleerwaermung?” (Where’s the global warming). The El current El Niño is in a tailspin. ================================== Global temperatures plummet in just a single week – NH one degree colder By Schneefan After the global temperature anomaly reached a peak in early December, 2015, […]

German Scientists Suggest NOAA, NASA And Met Office Are Doping The Global Temperature Data

Geologist Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt compare adjustments made by NOAA, NASA and the Met Office to doping in sports. ========================================= Temperature Data Doping?

Leading German Weather Site 'Donnerwetter' Warns Of "Fascist Thinking In Climate Protection And Ecology"

Leading German Weather Site ‘Donnerwetter’ Warns Of “Fascist Thinking In Climate Protection And Ecology”

I expect this piece appearing at one of Germany’s leading weather forecasting sites, donnerwetter.de, to be controversial and that there could even be efforts to force the site to take it down. The commentary points out that some of the main elements of today’s environmental and climate movement sweeping across Europe were and are common […]

Stinging Criticism: Belgian Prof Calls COP21 A “Resounding Failure” …”A Grand Illusion” Based On “Delirium”!

The Belgian online Le Peuple here interviewed István Marko, Professor of Chemistry at the UCL, and a so-called climate non-alarmist, on what he thought of the results of the highly ballyhooed Paris COP21 climate summit and agreement. Photo: www.uclouvain.be Unrealistic and laughable His assessment is devastating. He calls the COP21 agreement a “grand illusion“, a “resounding failure” […]

German Wildlife Foundation Calls For Wind Park Moratorium, Cites “Increase In Criminal Activity” By Wind Park Builders

November 2015 Solar Report: Sunspot Activity Remains The Weakest Since Dalton Minimum Of Early 1800s

The Sun in November 2015 By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) In November our sun was once again below normal in activity. The 84th month since the current solar cycle started in December 2008 saw a solar sunspot number (SSN) of 63.2, which was 72% of what is the mean for month […]

Experts Blast “Voluntary” Paris Treaty: “Extraordinarily Costly…Will Do Nothing”…”Meaningless Gesture”…

As expected, we are now finding out the Paris climate climate agreement has been spectacularly oversold to the public as a success for climate protection. Now that the text has been examined, it is clear that the agreement, which cannot even be called a treaty, and which has yet to be “ratified”, is turning out to be an […]

New "Historical Draft" Is Delusional ...Will Go Down In History As Certificate Of Madness And Hysteria

New “Historical Draft” Is Delusional …Will Go Down In History As Certificate Of Madness And Hysteria

UPDATE: No surprise, but sadly, all countries signed the dumb treaty, which we know will be meaningless in curbing global CO2 emissions. The treaty is useless, vaguely binding and will not have any impact whatsoever. In a few days we will start hearing a chorus of dissatisfaction from reductions proponents about the treaty’s ineffectiveness. ====================== Here’s […]

Spiegel Writes Of A Climate Treaty “On The Brink” …”Harsh Threats” …China Feels “Provoked – Unwilling To Compromise”

Spiegel has the latest analysis of the climate haggling going on at COP21. It looks pretty heated. From science journalist Axel Bojanowski‘s perspective, the representatives have encountered some major obstacles. He writes of a “huge clamor” and reports that the treaty is on the brink. He writes, citing delegates, the negotiations have been charged with “harsh […]

German ‘Die Zeit’ Describes COP21 Climate Of Discord, Watered-Down Drafts…”Almost Every Country Has Objections Against Draft Treaty”

Before COP21 assembled in Paris last month, there was a sense of optimism that a new climate treaty to replace the long-expired 1997 Kyoto Protocol for reducing “greenhouse gas” emissions would be hammered out. But now that COP 21 is approaching its scheduled end, we are finding out from the media that representatives are a […]
