Revealed: IPCC Adds 0.3°C Of Phantom Warming Between 3rd, 5th Reports ... Met Office Removes 0.3°C From 1880s-1940s Warming

Revealed: IPCC Adds 0.3°C Of Phantom Warming Between 3rd, 5th Reports … Met Office Removes 0.3°C From 1880s-1940s Warming

In the IPCC’s 2001 third report (TAR), the total surface temperature increase for the 20th century was reported to be “about 0.6°C”. IPCC TAR (2001): “The global average surface temperature has increased over the 20th century by about 0.6°C.” This Met Office graph of global temperatures for 1860-2000 was included in the IPCC’s 2001 report.

Weather Models Now Agreeing: Early WINTER BRUTALITY For Europe/Asia, With "Vicious" Conditions!

Weather Models Now Agreeing: Early WINTER BRUTALITY For Europe/Asia, With “Vicious” Conditions!

Seasonal forecasts are iffy. Right now, however, there are strengthening indicators showing winter brutality in the pipeline for Europe rushing at us like an express train. Don’t let the current relatively benign autumn conditions fool you. I’ve been following all of this over the past couple of weeks, and as a result decided last Friday to […]

"Clear Mismatch Between Climate Models And Paleoclimate Data," New Peer-Reviewed Book Finds

“Clear Mismatch Between Climate Models And Paleoclimate Data,” New Peer-Reviewed Book Finds

Climate science critical geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and chemist Professor Fritz Vahrenholt informed readers here that a new book has been recently published: “Evidence-Based Climate Science: Data Opposing CO2 Emissions as the Primary Source of Global Warming“. The book’s publisher is glacier geologist Don Easterbrook, Western Washington University. At their site Lüning and Vahrenholt write […]

Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Trend Has In Fact Been Upward Over Past Quarter Century!

Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Trend Has In Fact Been Upward Over Past Quarter Century!

USA’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provides data here on snow cover. Because global warming is supposed to be leading to less snow, one would think that snow cover in terms of area would be trending downwards over the past 50 or so years. However, the data tell us a very different story. Surprisingly […]

3 New Papers Reveal Dominance Of Solar, Cloud Climate Forcing Since The 1980s ... With CO2 Only A Bit Player

3 New Papers Reveal Dominance Of Solar, Cloud Climate Forcing Since The 1980s … With CO2 Only A Bit Player

According to the IPCC (2007), changes in climate occur as a consequence of variations in the Earth’s radiation budget (solar energy absorbed by versus leaving the surface).  Changes in the Earth’s radiation budget occur for 3 primary reasons; two of those three reasons involve solar forcing. IPCC AR4: “Global climate is determined by the radiation […]

Climate Protection Goes Medieval...Ushers In New Age Of Indulgences And Almsgiving

Climate Protection Goes Medieval…Ushers In New Age Of Indulgences And Almsgiving

The other day as I was looking to book a hotel in the city of Hamburg I came across the Novum Style Hotel Hamburg. What caught my eye was that the booking and price conditions allow guests the option of offsetting the CO2 emissions that their stay produces. According to the Novum’s reservation page and […]

Former German Economics Minister Rips Renewable Energy Policy! “Capital Destruction Of Difficult-To-Fathom Dimensions”!

Criticism and harsh words on Germany’s out-of-control renewable energy policy continues to mount and grow in volume as the energy sector approaches potential catastrophe. Germany’s former federal minister for economics and labour, Wolfgang Clement, slams current German energy policy. Photo: http://www.bmwa.bund.htm (free use).

Green Energy Thrill Is Gone! Once Overwhelming Support For German 'Energiewende' Fades, Study Finds

Green Energy Thrill Is Gone! Once Overwhelming Support For German ‘Energiewende’ Fades, Study Finds

There’s more trouble with the Energiewende. The thrill is gone! It used to be that the German Energiewende (transition to renewable energies) once enjoyed overwhelming support among the population. However, a recent national survey conducted by Germany’s University of Stuttgart, in cooperation with the University of Münster and two Fraunhofer institutes, shows a nation that has […]

Early Europe Winter? ...And Greenland Sees "Record" 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Early Europe Winter? …And Greenland Sees “Record” 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Yesterday veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi brought to our attention an article by the Washington Post here, where it reports forecasters are warning that the coming winter “could get nasty” for the Washington D.C. area. Although the National Weather Service predicts “equal chances of a cold or mild winter”, private meteorologists warn the winter could get […]

Japanese Scientist Explains "Trick" Behind 3.7 Watts Per Square Meter Forcing At The Tropopause

Japanese Scientist Explains “Trick” Behind 3.7 Watts Per Square Meter Forcing At The Tropopause

Trick of the radiative forcing of 3.7W/m2 at the tropopause by Kyoji Kimoto Radiative forcing is defined as 3.7W/m2 for 2xCO2 at the tropopause by the IPCC Third Assessment Report (2001) to avoid the usage of the surface radiative forcing of around 1W/m2. It is greatly reduced from the radiative forcing of around 4W/m2 at […]

20 New Papers: Higher CO2, Global Warming Increase Crop Yields, Green The Earth, Reduce Weather Extremes, Extend Human Life

20 New Papers: Higher CO2, Global Warming Increase Crop Yields, Green The Earth, Reduce Weather Extremes, Extend Human Life

Back in the early 1970s, when there was a scientific consensus that the Earth was cooling and that cooling was not good for the biosphere, scientists were ranking human-generated pollutants in terms of their potential to do harm to the planet. At that time, CO2 was regarded as “the least objectionable or only beneficial addition to […]

Global Investments In Renewable Energies Crash in 3rd Quarter 2016, Bloomberg Reports!

Citing the London-based consulting company Bloomberg New Energy Finance the German Business News here reports that “investments in renewable energies collapsed worldwide in the third quarter” of this year, led by Europe, China and Japan. Compared to the 3rd quarter of 2015, investment, mainly in solar and wind power, fell a whopping 43 percent. Among the […]

Current Solar Cycle Fades, Continues To Be Weakest in 200 Years …Likely Foretelling Global Cooling

The Sun in September 2016 By Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated and edited by P Gosselin) Also last month the sun was relatively inactive. The observed sunspot number (SSN) was 44.7, which was just 64% of what is the average for the previously observed 23 cycles. The average cycle has a duration of 11 […]

18 New Papers Link High Solar Activity To Medieval And Modern Warmth, Low Solar Activity To Little Ice Age Cooling

“It is generally accepted that the climate warms during periods of strong solar activity (e.g., the Medieval Warm Period) and cools during periods of low solar activity (e.g., the Little Ice Age).” —Lyu et al., 2016 Within the last 1,000 years, global-scale surface temperatures underwent a warm period during Medieval times, centennial-scale cooling during the […]

After Trillions of Dollars And 13 Climate Conferences, CO2 Emissions Reach New Record High!

Michael Krueger at German skeptic site Science Skeptical here writes that in 2015 global CO2 emissions reached another new all-time record high, despite all the elaborate climate conferences and hundreds of billions of dollars invested in curbing global “greenhouse gases”. Krueger asks: What have all the climate conferences brought us since the first UN conference took place in […]

Scientists: 'Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends'

Scientists: ‘Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends’

According to a recently published paper in the journal Science, (Cook et al., 2016, “Ocean forcing of glacier retreat in the western Antarctic Peninsula”), between 1945 and 2009 the mean ocean temperature warmed at depths of 150 to 400 meters for about 3/4ths of the waters surrounding the western Antarctic Peninsula (AP).  The other 1/4th […]

Flagship Daily ‘Die Welt’ Calls Germany’s Ban Of Internal Combustion Engines By 2030 A “Fairy Tale”

There have been a number of reports that Germany will ban the internal combustion engine (ICE) by the year 2030, i.e. in just 14 years. This has been already voted on by Germany’s Federal Council (Bundesrat). Although 14 years can be plenty of time to usher in a technical revolution (e.g. think of how much technology […]
