Central Europe Mean September Temperature Shows No Significant Rise Over Past 70 Years!

Germany Temperatures Baffle: September Mean Shows Hardly Any Warming In 70 Years By Josef Kowatsch and Dr. Sebastian Lüning (Translated and edited by P Gosselin) Temperatures are rising and rising and rising. That’s what we read in any case in the daily newspaper, and that’s what some television professors, activists and climate scientists are telling us. […]

Media Baffled..."WHERE Have All The Cyclones Gone?"...Pacific Near "Quietest Season On Record"!

Media Baffled…”WHERE Have All The Cyclones Gone?”…Pacific Near “Quietest Season On Record”!

Dr. Ryan Maue here reports at Twitter that although the Atlantic hurricane season “is going gangbusters“, the Pacific is in fact seeing “one of quietest Typhoon seasons on record“. Last month in the media, amid the aftermath of Harvey and Irma, the public heard a long stream of hysterical reports claiming that the tropical storms were sure sure […]

New Paper: Temperature Increase From Doubling CO2 Is 'Insignificant Compared to Natural Variability'

New Paper: Temperature Increase From Doubling CO2 Is ‘Insignificant Compared to Natural Variability’

Engineering Prof. Questions Temperature Record, Models, CO2 Climate Sensitivity  Photo California Baptist University  Pontius, 2017   Sustainable Infrastructure: Climate Changes and Carbon Dioxide Temperatures Record ‘Unreliable’, ‘Arbitrarily Adjusted’, And Of ‘Poor Data Quality’ Temperature measurement stations have been installed at various locations across the globe. The number of temperature monitoring stations is decreasing and many areas across […]

Potsdam Institute’s Stefan Rahmstorf Uses Tricks To Warn Against “Trickster Skeptics”

It’s safe to say that the only people who still believe the ultra-alarmist scenarios of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research are the leftist media and green activists. Even the government funders of this institute know they aren’t really true. After all Germany hasn’t cut CO2 emissions in close to 10 years. Dr. Sebastian […]

Storms Expose Just How Huge Model Uncertainty Can Be...Even With 6-Hour Forecasts!

Storms Expose Just How Huge Model Uncertainty Can Be…Even With 6-Hour Forecasts!

Last Wednesday evening, Florida State University graduate student Levi Cowan showed at his Tropical Tidbits site his analysis of what was later to develop into tropical storm Nate in the Gulf of Mexico. His analysis exposed the great differences – thus huge uncertainty – between the US GFS and the European ECMWF models for the early projected […]

Scientists: Expansion Of Wind Turbines 'Likely To Lead To Extinction' For Endangered Vulture Species

Scientists: Expansion Of Wind Turbines ‘Likely To Lead To Extinction’ For Endangered Vulture Species

Wind Energy Expansion: Endangering Wildlife Photo from Ferrão da Costa et al., 2017 When pondering the future of wind power and its ecological impacts, it is well worth re-considering this seminal analysis from Dr. Matt Ridley. [W]orld energy demand has been growing at about 2 per cent a year for nearly 40 years. Between 2013 and 2014, […]

Green Energy Debacle: Multi-Million-Euro Geothermal Power Plant Shuts Down After 8 Years Of Endless Troubles

Green Energy Debacle: Multi-Million-Euro Geothermal Power Plant Shuts Down After 8 Years Of Endless Troubles

Like so many (highly subsidized) green energy projects in Germany the Kalina geothermal power plant in Unterhaching, Germany, was put into operation with great fanfare some 8 years ago in 2009. Look at all the great things we’re doing, high ranking politicians seemed to say as the cut the opening ribbon. Today the online Merkur.de reports that the […]

Leading German Economics Professor Calls Germany’s Energiewende An Energy Policy Calamity

In a recently released video interview by journalist Jörg Rehmann, University of Magdeburg economics professor Joachim Weimann explains why renewable energies have been a terrible idea for Germany so far. Recently a high ranking expert commission set up by the German government even sharply criticized the German Energiewende (transition to renewable energies), saying it was leading the country down […]

28 New Papers: Solar, Ocean Cycles Modulate Rainfall Trends

28 New Papers: Solar, Ocean Cycles Modulate Rainfall Trends

A Human Influence On Precipitation ‘Has Yet To Be Detected’ “Climate model output suggests decreasing rainfall as a consequence of anthropogenic greenhouse gas radiative forcing.” “[I]f anthropogenic forcing has impacted the [regional rainfall pattern], the signal has yet to be detected above the level of natural climate variability.” – Lachniet et al., 2017 According to […]
