Recent Study Shows Climate Models Still Crude, Poorly Weighted

Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt here bring our attention on a recent paper on the impact of “sea smell” on climate. Below is the press release in English. Under the bottom line: Climate models are a very long way from being reliable. They are still at the primitive stages. ============================================== Impact of sea smell […]

Widespread Siberian Cold, Area As Big As Half The USA Now Under 40° Below

Widespread Siberian Cold, Area As Big As Half The USA Now Under 40° Below

I keep hearing how the Arctic is warmer than normal, and so it’s a sure sign of “global warming”. Yet I came across a chart earlier today showing conditions over Siberia, which of course is a vast region. What’s interesting is the extent and sheer depth of the cold that has gripped this area: Chart […]

Veteran Meteorologist Warns Europe Winter To Make "Global Headlines"..."Tremendous Amounts Of Snow"!

Veteran Meteorologist Warns Europe Winter To Make “Global Headlines”…”Tremendous Amounts Of Snow”!

A couple of days ago I reported here how Joe Bastardi warned that Europe would soon be turning cold and wintry. Well, he hasn’t backed off at all from that forecast and appears to be gaining more confidence with it. Although the timing may have shifted about a bit , the overall pattern remains: cold […]

The 'Ocean Acidification' Narrative Collapses Under The Weight Of New Scientific Evidence

The ‘Ocean Acidification’ Narrative Collapses Under The Weight Of New Scientific Evidence

The ocean “acidification” narrative that claims humans are gradually lowering pH levels in sea water with their CO2 emissions may rest on presumptions, hypotheticals, and confirmation bias — not robust, observational scientific evidence. A paper by Wei et al. (2015) published a year ago in the Journal of Geophysical Research effectively illustrates the vacuousness of the […]

‘Manager Magazin’ Reports How Renewable Electricity Is Taking Germany On A Wild Ride

It’s the paradox of the German Energiewende (transition to green energy): power exchange market prices are lower than ever before, yet consumers are paying the highest prices ever – with no stop in the increases in sight. Moreover, the more green electricity that is fed into the grid, the more coal that gets burned. Communist-quality […]

Meteorologists Warn Of Possible Arctic Blast For Europe. Also: Threat Of Green Energy Refugees!

Meteorologists Warn Of Possible Arctic Blast For Europe. Also: Threat Of Green Energy Refugees!

At his Weatherbell Daily Update (12/26) veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi issued an Arctic weather heads up for Europe after the New Year: Look at this in the 11 to 16. This is indicating that the models think there’s going to be a lot of snow on the ground in the UK and all through western Europe.” The […]

The Rapid Deceleration Of Greenland Ice Sheet Mass Loss In Recent Years Not Reported In 'Arctic Report Card'

The Rapid Deceleration Of Greenland Ice Sheet Mass Loss In Recent Years Not Reported In ‘Arctic Report Card’

  About two weeks ago, NOAA released the annual version of their latest Arctic Report Card.  Of course, the usual media outlets peddled the requisite doomsday headlines when describing the report’s contents, deploying words like grim  and dire  and pedantically issuing a failing grade so as to paint a picture of an Arctic climate teetering […]

National Weather Service's Multi-Billion Dollar Models Fail ...Totally Botched Forecasts!

National Weather Service’s Multi-Billion Dollar Models Fail …Totally Botched Forecasts!

If President-elect Donald Trump is looking for places to cut costs, he might want to take a look at the National Weather Service’s seasonal forecasting unit. Yesterday at the Daily Update over at Weatherbell Analytics, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi looked at the season forecasts, generated by billion dollar super-computers,  recently put out by NCEP. Turns out […]

The Hockey Stick Collapses: 60 New (2016) Scientific Papers Affirm Today's Warming Isn't Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable

The Hockey Stick Collapses: 60 New (2016) Scientific Papers Affirm Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable

Two fundamental tenets of the anthropogenic global warming narrative are (1) the globe is warming (i.e., it’s not just regional warming), and (2) the warming that has occurred since 1950 can be characterized as remarkable, unnatural, and largely unprecedented.  In other words, today’s climate is substantially and alarmingly different than what has occurred in the […]

False Alarm: Spate Of New Studies Reject Claim Corals Are In Imminent Danger!

Coral reefs keep cool By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated by P Gosselin) Coral horror stories have long been among the favorites of the media. Lately, however, a number of journalists have been taking a closer look at the state of the coral reefs. A good example is an article […]

Horrible Irony …Merkel Recently Said Germany Needed Immigrants: “Everywhere Truck Drivers Are Being Sought”

Germany is in shock after yesterday’s terrorist attack on a Berlin Christmas market, which is a stark symbol of German culture. The latest figures show 12 dead and 48 injured – some seriously. Also the Polish driver of the hijacked truck allegedly was killed. Already accusations are flying back and forth, with some on the […]

Scientists: 1930s Ice Melt Rates In Greenland, Iceland Were The Same As Today...No Net Ice Loss In 80 Years

Scientists: 1930s Ice Melt Rates In Greenland, Iceland Were The Same As Today…No Net Ice Loss In 80 Years

“[T]he coincidence of the most recent phase of ice-frontal retreat…and warming summer temperatures is not unusual in the context of the last ~80 years.” — Chandler et al., 2016 All too often, scientific analysis of modern glacier and ice sheet melt rates is conveniently confined to the last 30 to 60 years.  Indeed, the common […]

1977 Spiegel Warned Of Little Ice Age Soon: "Widespread Glaciation" ..."Temperature Has Fallen 0.3°C"!

1977 Spiegel Warned Of Little Ice Age Soon: “Widespread Glaciation” …”Temperature Has Fallen 0.3°C”!

Back in the 1970s, many media outlets warned of global cooling and even a possible coming ice age. For example here I wrote about how Spiegel in 1974 grimly reported of threatening global cooling and that the odds of global warming were “at best” only 1 in 10,000! Current warm period “coming to an end” […]

Experts: Green-Preaching Germany To Miss 2020 Climate Targets By A Mile... "An Illusion"!

Experts: Green-Preaching Germany To Miss 2020 Climate Targets By A Mile… “An Illusion”!

The online Germany-based International Business Forum for Regenerative Energies (IWR) here writes that the country will fail to reach its 2020 climate targets, despite tens of billions of euros invested in green energies such as wind and solar, and all its incessant green pontification. An expert commission appointed by the government recently released its 5th […]

Scientists: Greenland Is Now Much Colder With More Advanced Ice Sheet Margins Than 90% Of The Last 7,500 Years

Fifteen international scientists recently collaborated to assemble one of the most comprehensive analyses of temperature and ice sheet changes for Greenland and the Canadian Arctic ever produced.  Briner et al., (2016) synthesized over 100 records from a large and accumulating database to publish “Holocene climate change in Arctic Canada and Greenland” in the journal Quaternary […]

Trump Already Wows The Nation …”Surge In Optimism Not Seen In Years!”

NEWSBREAK 12/15/2016: Dollar climbs to highest level in over 13 years! ===================================== With their (fake) warnings that a Trump presidency would lead economic markets into turmoil, the Democrats and media critics have got to be feeling a little embarrassed.
