20+ Scientists: ‘No Continent-Scale Warming Of Antarctic Temperature Is Evident In The Last Century’

Two More New Papers Document No Warming Trend In Antarctica Image Source: State of the Climate, 2016 For several decades now, Antarctica has not been cooperating with the “global” warming narrative, as the continent as a whole has not been warming. Several scientific papers have been published recently that document the lack of an anthropogenic […]

New Literature Strongly Suggests CO2 Residence Time In The Atmosphere Is Exaggerated!

As usual, there are many highly interesting posts on climate science at the German Die kalte Sonne site.

50 Inverted Hockey Sticks - Scientists Find Earth Cools As CO2 Rises

50 Inverted Hockey Sticks – Scientists Find Earth Cools As CO2 Rises

Modern ‘Warmth’ A Brief Excursion From 8,000-Year (Continuing) Cooling Trend The scientific literature is replete with evidence that the geological record for the Holocene (the last 10,000 years) fails to support the concept that rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations cause ocean and land temperatures to rise. Actually, the scientific literature strongly suggests that the correlation between […]

Cloud-Forming Cosmic Rays Above Average More Than One Year As Sun Begins Slumber

Translated/edited from wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de. A huge hole in the magnetically hot corona of the sun in the coming weeks will lead to a powerful solar wind and initiate hefty polar lights in the earth’s magnetic field. This will be a brief pause in the solar activity slumber that has taken hold over the past year and […]

Potsdam PIK Climate Director Says We Will Have To Go Back To Mud Huts By 2040

Germany’s Deutsche Welle (DW) here presents a commentary by Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, the director of German ultra-alarmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. Professor Schellnhuber fears that the planet could warm even as much as 12°C if man does not act quickly to totally eliminate greenhouse gases. He adds that he “has all the evidence” […]
