New Paper: CO2 Has 'Negligible' Influence On Earth's Temperature

New Paper: CO2 Has ‘Negligible’ Influence On Earth’s Temperature

Water Vapour  Climate Forcing ‘Up To 200 Times’ Greater, ‘Overrides Any Effect By CO2’ H. Douglas Lightfoot profile PDF Lightfoot and Mamer, 2017 (1) Robust scientific evidence shows the sun angle controls water vapour content of the atmosphere, the main component of back radiation, as it cycles annually. Back radiation, water vapour concentration and atmospheric temperature follow the […]

"For Fame And Fund"... Japanese Scientist Accuses Four Climate Researchers, IPCC, Of "Fake Science"

“For Fame And Fund”… Japanese Scientist Accuses Four Climate Researchers, IPCC, Of “Fake Science”

AGW scandal by four scientists and the IPCC By Kyoji Kimoto, kyoji@mirane.co.jp, July 30, 2017 (Background here, where Robert Cess admits error) The anthropogenic global warming (AGW) theory of the IPCC is a fake science developed by the following scientists for fame & fund, causing huge economic losses to the world. President Trump made a […]

German E-Mobility Headed For Wall…”Ecological Performance Of The E-Car Is Truly Miserable!”

The online site of DW German public broadcasting has a report on electric cars, which are deemed by many as the solution to all of the climate’s and environment’s ills. Turns out this is hardly the case – at least in Germany. Over the past weeks much scorn has been aimed at Germany’s mighty automotive […]

Germany Experts Revise (Junk) Model Projections For Summer Precipitation After String Of Failures

Since the Met Office’s infamous prediction of “barbecue summers” and snowless winters, Germany’s “climate experts” too have made some awfully embarrassing and sorrowfully wrong model projections. For example they too predicted that Central Europe’s winters would become snowless and summers would be more like the 2003 summer: long stretches of heat and drought conditions. However, […]

New Study: Electric Vehicle Use Does Not Reduce CO2 Emissions

New Study: Electric Vehicle Use Does Not Reduce CO2 Emissions

Negligible 4.9% Emissions Difference Between EVs And Petroleum Vehicles   According to a new paper published in the journal Issues in Science and Technology entitled “Electric Vehicles: Climate Saviors, Or Not?”, driving an electric vehicle (EV) rather than a conventional petroleum-powered vehicle effectively does nothing to reduce global-scale CO2 emissions. This is because charging EVs on […]

New Studies Show Oceans Absorbing Atmospheric CO2 …”Putting Brakes On Climate Change”

South Polar Sea removing large quantities of CO2 from the atmosphere By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) About half of the CO2 emitted by man gets absorbed by the oceans and so does not stay in the atmosphere. Here there are certain areas of the ocean that are […]

Climate Models Out Of Whack …Also Warming From Arctic Soot Underestimated

What follows is another report on how it’s “back-to-the drawing-board” for climate models. ============================================== Climate models underestimate soot amounts and their warming effect in the Arctic By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translation/editing of German text by P Gosselin) Soot (black carbon aerosol) is a climate warming aerosol. Some years ago we recognized […]

4 New Papers: Modern Warming Is Substantially Artificial, Traced To Urbanization, Bias

4 New Papers: Modern Warming Is Substantially Artificial, Traced To Urbanization, Bias

Scientists: Temperature Data Contamination Accounts For 33% – 75% Of Modern Warming Urban heat from paved roads, buildings, and machinery can artificially inflate temperatures substantially above measured temperatures from non-urban areas.  This introduces a significant non-climatic warming bias into long-term records. Heat from an urban (or highly populated) environment can artificially raise temperatures by as much […]

Sea Level Rise At German Coast Slowing, Contradicting German DWD Weather Service Hysteria

Manfred Knake here at the European Institute For Climate And Energy (EIKE) writes that the sea level at the German coasts is not rising as fast as Germany’s DWD national weather service would like the public to believe it is. lately press releases related to climate by the DWD have been bordering on hysteria. For […]

Spate Of Recent Papers: Climate Models Still Unable To Reproduce Even Most Fundamental Cycles!

Can we really afford this? Model failures with ocean cycles By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translation/editing of German text by P Gosselin) The 60-year ocean cycles govern global temperature development. Yet climate models are still unable to reproduce the empirically well established relationship. Naturally this is all very embarrassing and has since […]

Swiss Daily, German Scientist Slam Reporting U of Exeter Antarctic Findings… “An Abuse Of Science”!

A commentary appearing here at the Swiss Baseler Zeitung (BAZ) slams a recently published British paper on moss growth in Antarctica that gave the impression the south polar continent was greening up due to climate change. The BAZ writes that the paper is an example of “how today science is manipulated and used for political purposes“. […]

Scientists Find At Least 75% Of The Earth Has Not Warmed In Recent Decades

Scientists Find At Least 75% Of The Earth Has Not Warmed In Recent Decades

 The ‘Real Proxy’ Temperature Record  Hints Near-Global Cooling Has Begun As a new scientific paper (Turney et al., 2017) indicates, the Southern Ocean encompasses 14% of the Earth’s surface.  And according to regional temperature measurements that have apparently not been subjected to warming “corrections” by data adjusters, the Southern Ocean has been cooling in recent […]

Blaming 0.01% Of Atmosphere As Insane As Blaming 0.6% Of Human Race For World's Ills

Blaming 0.01% Of Atmosphere As Insane As Blaming 0.6% Of Human Race For World’s Ills

What follows later, below, is a short commentary by Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt and Dr. Sebastian Lüning recently appearing at Die kalte Sonne site here. Indeed, it’s truly mind-boggling how a single person or a trace gas now gets all the blame for every weather problem. The hysteria-filled Dark Ages of the Inquisition are back. Torches […]

Amazonian Cold Snap Grips South America...Veteran Meteorologist Calls It "Spectacular"

Amazonian Cold Snap Grips South America…Veteran Meteorologist Calls It “Spectacular”

Yesterday at Twitter here meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a well-known climate science antagonist, directed our attention to the NCEP temperature situation for South America. Yikes! The massive scale of the cold is of Amazonian proportions, with temperatures well below normal across the entire continent. Bastardi even called the cold “spectacular”. Recently snow was reported to have fallen in […]

Swiss Physicist Concludes IPCC Assumptions 'Violate Reality'...CO2 A 'Very Weak Greenhouse Gas'

Swiss Physicist Concludes IPCC Assumptions ‘Violate Reality’…CO2 A ‘Very Weak Greenhouse Gas’

 CO2 Contributed Only 0.12°C  To Global Temps Since 1850 A Swiss scientist known to have published hundreds of scientific papers in physics journals has authored a new scholarly paper that casts serious doubts on the effectiveness of CO2 as a greenhouse gas influencing Earth’s temperatures. This paper has been added to a growing volume of peer-reviewed scientific papers […]

What follows are the eight reasons along with my own descriptions. 1. Unstable, erratic power supply The wind doesn’t blow constantly, and […]

Euopean Climate Institute EIKE Says Antarctica Ice Calving “Totally Normal”, Natural Causes

The Vice President of the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) Michael Limburg wrote that the recent ice chunk breaking off the Antarctic ice shelf has everything to do with natural cyclic calving, and that the media reporting has been mostly alarmist hype. EIKE writes: Antarctic ice shelf breaking is a totally normal […]

Caving To Trump On Climate? Paris Accord Still Up For Talks, Says Macron At Press Conference

Caving To Trump On Climate? Paris Accord Still Up For Talks, Says Macron At Press Conference

Before getting to the yesterday’s Trump/Macron press conference, first I wish to bring up the nice reaction we got from Curtis Stone, the urban farmer I featured here a couple of days ago here in a less than flattering manner. (Now I wish I had not been so hard on him). Here’s the comment he […]

New Paper Indicates Subantarctic Glacier Retreat More Extensive In 1700s Than Now

New Paper Indicates Subantarctic Glacier Retreat More Extensive In 1700s Than Now

2nd Highest Subantarctic Glacier Advance Of Last 1,000 Years Occurred 50 Years Ago Yesterday we learned that a giant iceberg just split off from the Antarctic Peninsula. Most media outlets were uncharacteristically mild with their declarations of concern.  Even The Guardian pointed out that the breakup of the ice is naturally occurring, glaciologists are “not unduly concerned […]

Swiss Daily: "Record Cold July In Greenland"...Alarmists "Struggling To Explain" As Arctic Island Cools

Swiss Daily: “Record Cold July In Greenland”…Alarmists “Struggling To Explain” As Arctic Island Cools

We have all heard about the record-breaking ice mass balance and cold temperature reading of -33°C recently set in Greenland — the Arctic island that is supposedly the canary in the climate coal mine. It turns out that things up there are colder than we may be led to believe and that the alleged warming […]
