Since 2005, Arctic Sea Ice Has Pivoted To A Slightly Increasing Trend, With No Detectable Arctic Warming

Since 2005, Arctic Sea Ice Has Pivoted To A Slightly Increasing Trend, With No Detectable Arctic Warming

Arctic: 12 Years Of Sea Ice And Temperature Stability In the last 144 months, or since 2005, there has been no decreasing trend in Arctic sea ice.  In fact, there has been a slight increasing trend.   NSIDC Data – Graph Source: woodfortrees.org (2005.3-2017.3) or woodfortrees.org (Last 144 Months) Since the 21st century began, nearly all of the increase in Arctic-wide temperatures […]

Antarctic Climate Alarm Silenced: Ice Mass Stable, Recently Published Studies Show

The Good News: East Antarctic Ice Is And Remains Stable By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated, edited by P Gosselin) In March, 2015 there was a climate alarm at German online news weekly Focus: Climate warming Gigantic Antarctic glacier is melting – Holland in an emergency: sea level rise threatens […]

German Green Minister President Blasts Own Party’s E-Car Target As “Nonsense”… “You Don’t Have a Clue!”

The following German Green Party national convention video is very amusing. It shows a highly agitated Minister President of the state Baden Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann, very angrily blasting his own Green Party’s “radical” call to eliminate fossil fuel cars in Germany by 2030 at a recent Green Party convention. Kretschmann is clearly fed up with his party’s […]

Arctic Warming Reverse! New Study Finds Winter Arctic Sea Ice "To Increase Towards 2020"

Arctic Warming Reverse! New Study Finds Winter Arctic Sea Ice “To Increase Towards 2020”

It is not uncommon to hear from Europe’s media that climate change is to blame whenever a weather anomaly occurs on the old continent. The reason for the climate change of course gets attributed to man and fossil fuel emissions. Ocean drives Therefore, it is all the more interesting that a new paper has just […]

2 New Papers Expose The Environmental Nightmare Of Wind Turbine Blade Disposal

2 New Papers Expose The Environmental Nightmare Of Wind Turbine Blade Disposal

Unsustainable: 43 Million Tonnes Of Wind Turbine Blade Waste By 2050 “If the industry cannot come up with more sustainable manufacturing and disposal processes, public acceptance of wind energy would decline if the public becomes aware of these issues” – Ramirez-Tejeda et al., 2017 Despite an explosion in installed wind capacity since 1990, wind power […]

Recent Studies Find Climate Models (Used By Policymakers) Are Way Off The Mark

Climate models overstate global precipitation by almost a half By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited By P Gosselin) Slowly people are realizing that not everything in the climate modeling world is as rosy as once claimed for years. It’s bit like the Tour de France, where racers were once celebrated […]

Surprise! Despite High CO2, 2017 Accumulated Cyclone Energy "Remains At Record Low Levels"

Surprise! Despite High CO2, 2017 Accumulated Cyclone Energy “Remains At Record Low Levels”

Global warming was supposed to inject thermal energy into the atmosphere, and thus spawn one super cyclone after another.  Yet observations refuse to cooperate with the alarmist hypothesis. At Twitter Colorado State University research scientist Philip Klotzbach reports that 2017 global cyclone energy “remains at record low levels“: Earlier on June 13 Klotzbach tweeted the following […]

Scientific Papers Indicate Natural Processes Dominate Changes In Ozone Hole, Methane And CO2 Emissions

Scientific Papers Indicate Natural Processes Dominate Changes In Ozone Hole, Methane And CO2 Emissions

What If Human Emissions Aren’t All That Influential? We have been led to believe that we can control the size of the ozone hole and both methane and CO2 concentrations with our emissions. We have also been led to believe we control weather patterns (storminess, droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes); we control tropospheric, atmospheric, surface, and […]

Lowest Solar Activity In 200 Years Accompanied By High Northern Hemispheric Snow And Ice

Lowest Solar Activity In 200 Years Accompanied By High Northern Hemispheric Snow And Ice

Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt present their monthly solar activity report at their Die kalte Sonne site. In May the sun was very quiet as sunspot number was a mere 18.8, which is only 36% of what is typical for the month this far into the cycle. Seven days saw no sunspot activity at all. The […]

What A Mess! Spiegel Reveals Scientists Don't Know Real Temperature Of The Planet

What A Mess! Spiegel Reveals Scientists Don’t Know Real Temperature Of The Planet

The Germany-based European Institute For Climate and Energy (EIKE) alerts here that it is now obvious nobody really knows what the real mean global temperature is, and that claims that the planet is the hottest it’s been since measurements began are not making any sense. In 1995 it was 15.4°C. Today we are told it is […]

Almost 300 Graphs Undermine Claims Of Unprecedented, Global-Scale Modern Warmth

Almost 300 Graphs Undermine Claims Of Unprecedented, Global-Scale Modern Warmth

Hundreds Of Scientific Papers Challenge ‘Global’ Warming Recently, an article citing over 80 graphs from scientific papers published in 2017 — and another 55 graphs from 2016  — established that modern “global” warming is not actually global in scale, and that today’s warmth is neither unprecedented or remarkable when considering the larger context of natural variability. Here, an additional […]

Leftist Fantasies Of Bloody Violence Now Becoming The New Reality

Note: Kenneth’s usual Thursday post will appear tomorrow ======================================== U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was seriously wounded by a loony leftist gunman, who obviously had been driven over the edge by all the recent hate signals coming from a violence-inciting media. However, all the left-wing environmental violence just didn’t start yesterday, or since Trump […]

“Projections Made By Climate Models Wildly Exaggerated,” Scientists Say

Climate models in distress: Problems with forecast performance give cause to worry By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) The 2015/16 El Nino 2015/16 is over, and so are the celebrations by the climate alarmists. It’s becoming increasingly clear that the projections made by the climate models were wildly […]

Zeke Hausfather Brings Real Climate's CO2 Reduction Fantasies Back To Brutal Reality

Zeke Hausfather Brings Real Climate’s CO2 Reduction Fantasies Back To Brutal Reality

It amazes me how activists and even highly educated scientists are clinging to the hope that global society is somehow still able to meet the junk-theoretical 2°C greenhouse gas emissions target. And so I had to laugh when Zeke Hausfather at Twitter brought down two Potsdam, Germany, activist scientists from their fantasy world of radical CO2 reductions […]

17 New Scientific Papers Dispute CO2 Greenhouse Effect As Primary Explanation For Climate Change

17 New Scientific Papers Dispute CO2 Greenhouse Effect As Primary Explanation For Climate Change

“[T]he absorption of incident solar-light by the atmosphere as well as its absorption capability of thermal radiation, cannot be influenced by human acts.”  – Allmendinger, 2017 “[G]lobal warming can be explained without recourse to the greenhouse theory.  The varying solar irradiation constitutes the sole input driving the changes in the system’s energy transfers.”  – Blaauw, […]
