7 New (2017) Papers Forecast Global Cooling, Another Little Ice Age Will Begin Soon

Temperatures To Decrease 0.5°C-0.7°C Due To Low Sunspots, Solar Minimum Image Source: Abdussamatov, 2012 During 2017, 120 papers linking historical and modern climate change to variations in solar activity and its modulators (clouds, cosmic rays) have been published in scientific journals. It has been increasingly established that low solar activity (fewer sunspots) and increased cloud […]

328,000 German Poor Households Saw Electricity Switched Off in 2016 …Millions More Threatened!

Germany’s energy poverty is about to get worse, as poor people are threatened with being put out in the cold by the country’s green energies. Electricity prices “higher than they have ever been” German news weekly Stern here reports that “electricity prices will rise further at the start of the year” and that “there is no […]

Media Silence: Flurry Of Recent Papers Show Warming Likely Will Lead To LESS STORM ACTIVITY!

What follows are 6 recent studies presented by Lüning and Vahrenholt, which dump cold water on the claim storms will get more frequent and intense.

Major Blow To 'Energiewende' As Top German Economist Shows Plan Can Never Work!

Major Blow To ‘Energiewende’ As Top German Economist Shows Plan Can Never Work!

Germany’s once highly promoted “Energiewende” (transition to green energies) and the country’s feed-in act have been given a grade of “F” by one of the country’s top economists, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Hans-Werner Sinn. Just days ago the renowned economics professor gave a presentation dubbed “How much volatile power can the power grid take?” before […]

New Paper: Humans Caused Central U.S. To Cool By -0.35°C Since The 1940s As Crop Yields Soared

New Paper: Humans Caused Central U.S. To Cool By -0.35°C Since The 1940s As Crop Yields Soared

Post-1940s ‘Agricultural Intensification’ Caused Deep Cooling, 400% Crop Growth In a new paper published in Geophysical Research Letters, three MIT scientists assert that the human influence on the climate of the Central United States is dominated by agricultural activity rather than greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Human activity has caused a significant long-term cooling trend (-0.35°C between […]

AMERICA UNSHACKLED…EMANCIPATING ITSELF AS TRUMP ACCOMPLISHES!

Have you ever wondered why the opposition and European elitists are freaking out? Many can no longer cope with the reality. Trump has performed extremely well under the most hostile of circumstances, and accomplished a lot: Now the huge tax reform bill moves to the President’s desk for signing.

Breaking: Northwest Pacific Volcanic Eruption Fires Ash 15 Km Into The Atmosphere!

There’s been a volcanic eruption in Northwest Pacific at Bezymianny Volcano, reports dutchsinse.com here. Already an aviation colour code RED has been issued. The spectacular, Mount St. Helens-like eruption has even been posted on YouTube: The 2882-meter Bezymianny Volcano in Russia in the northwest Pacific blew on December 20, 2017, and the eruption was so powerful that […]

In an opinion piece at the Mittel Bayerische daily, Harry Neumann, National Chairman of the environmental group Naturschutzinitiative e.V. declares Germany’s Energiewende (transition to renewable energies) a failure and writes: “The wind power industry and nature protection cannot be reconciled.” Moreover Germany’s EEG green energy feed-in act is doing more harm than good, writes Neumann: […]

25 Papers: Natural Forcing Explains Why The Globe's Oceans Have Been Recently Warming AND Cooling

25 Papers: Natural Forcing Explains Why The Globe’s Oceans Have Been Recently Warming AND Cooling

  In assessing the global-scale trends in near-surface (0-20 m) ocean temperatures between 1900 and 2010, Gouretski et al. (2012) determined that the world’s oceans warmed by about 1.1°C between 1900 and 1945 (~0.24°C per decade), but then only warmed by an additional net 0.3°C between 1945 and 2010 (~0.046°C per decade), including a cooling […]

Review Of Climate Models Show They Are Unreliable For Forecasting…”So Much Disappointment”

Before getting to the subject of climate models, first two small points worth bringing up: Eco-Trumpism spreading Firstly, it appears that Trump’s policies are sending powerful political impulses worldwide. For example ultra-alarmist German climate and energy site klimaretter here bemoans that leading socialist Sigmar Gabriel seems to be turning into an “Eco-Trump”. Gabriel actually had […]
