2 More New Papers Affirm There Is More Arctic Ice Coverage Today Than During The 1400s

 A Shrinking Anthropogenic Signal  Continues To Emerge In The Arctic Earlier this year, Stein et al., 2017 published a reconstruction of Arctic sea ice variations throughout the Holocene that appeared to establish that there is more Arctic sea ice now than for nearly all of the last 10,000 years. The study region, the Chukchi Sea, […]

German Public Media Finally Acknowledge Country’s Power Grid Now More Unstable Than Ever

It seems that the woes besetting the German Energiewende (transition the green energies) and the country’s power grids are finally beginning to hit home at the mainstream German media. For example German HR public radio here writes “increasingly large problems have besieged power grid operator Tennet” and that the company often “has to act at […]

Before 1960s-'70s Global Cooling Was Erased, It Caused Droughts, Crop Failures, Glacier Advance, Ice Age Threats

Before 1960s-’70s Global Cooling Was Erased, It Caused Droughts, Crop Failures, Glacier Advance, Ice Age Threats

Changing Scientific Consensus 1970s: Global Cooling A Serious Threat Today: Global Cooling Never Happened Until the mid-1980s, it was widely accepted in the peer-reviewed scientific literature that there was an abrupt global cooling trend between the 1940s and 1970s. The amplitude of the climate change amounted to more than -0.5°C of cooling in the Northern Hemisphere, as […]

2017 Global Cyclone Energy Almost 20% Below Normal …Southern Hemisphere Near Record Low!

A look at Dr. Ryan Maue’s site here tells us a lot about how 2017 cyclone activity is doing as the Atlantic hurricane season winds down. In September the Atlantic indeed saw some powerful hurricanes, such as Harvey, Irma and Maria, which led the media into a fit of Armageddon hysteria and calls to do […]

Warming Defied…Greenland Glacier Growth Over Past 5 Years… Polar Bears Leaving Early For Ice!

The Arctic is defying the alarmist melting predictions made by global warming activists and scientists. An Embarrassment! First, Vencore Weather here writes that Greenland Summit Station “will experience high temperatures around -40°F which continues the very cold and well-below normal trend for the month of November“. Moreover Vencore presents 2 NASA/MODIS satellite photos of Greenland’s Petermann […]

2 New Papers: Temperatures, Sea Levels, Climate Dynamics 'Have No Apparent Relationship To Atmospheric CO2'

2 New Papers: Temperatures, Sea Levels, Climate Dynamics ‘Have No Apparent Relationship To Atmospheric CO2’

More Scientific Evidence For CO2’s Dubious Climate Impact Emerges Image Source: Robertson and Chilingar, 2017 According to the most basic precepts of anthropogenic global warming (AGW), variations in CO2 concentrations exert significant control on sea surface temperatures, glaciers, sea levels, and generalized climate dynamics (i.e., precipitation patterns). In particular, high CO2 concentrations, driven by human activity, are […]

Signs Show Planet Entering A New Dalton Minimum…Solar Cycle 24 Continues To Be Weakest In 200 Years!

Global surface temperatures have been falling steadily since the last El Nino, glacier melt has been decelerating rapidly and Arctic sea ice has been making a surprising recovery this year. Moreover, the equatorial Pacific has just entered a global cooling La Nina phase. But there is another far more ominous, long-term sign that the planet […]

High Profile Swiss Meteorologist Slams Stefan Rahmstorf: “The Holy Wrath Of The Righteous”

Some weeks ago I reported here on how Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, the alarmist director of the Potsdam Institute, appeared on a leading German talk show together with Swiss meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann and others to discuss climate change and the rash of storms that had hit the Atlantic and North Sea. In the talk round Kachelmann (a […]

New Paper: Rapid Glacier Melt DECELERATION For High Mountain Asia...Now Nearly IN BALANCE

New Paper: Rapid Glacier Melt DECELERATION For High Mountain Asia…Now Nearly IN BALANCE

Glacier Retreat Has Been Slowing During 2000-2016 A new satellite-based estimate of glacier mass change for High Mountain Asia (HMA), the world’s third largest glacier conglomeration after Antarctica and Greenland, reveals a relatively modest retreat rate for the first 17 years of the 21st century. The results from Brun et al. (2017) indicate that HMA glaciers are nearly […]

Wall Street Journal Calls Merkel’s Energiewende “A Meltdown” Involving “Astronomical Costs”

The Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal here put out an accurate, concise assessment of how Germany’s “Energiewende” (transition away from fossil and nuclear energies over to green energies) has been faring so far. It’s grade? I’d interpret it as an F for failure. Quickly turning into a huge embarrassment Once seen as “a paragon […]

German Conventional Turbine Producer Siemens To Slash 6900 Workers Worldwide Due To “Energiewende”

The Swiss online SRF public television site here reports that German power engineering giant Siemens plans to eliminate some 6900 employees, half of them in Germany.

Germany CO2 Reduction Fails Again For 9th Year Running! ...Merkel Exposed As Fake Climate Warrior

Germany CO2 Reduction Fails Again For 9th Year Running! …Merkel Exposed As Fake Climate Warrior

Sometimes you have to wonder which are the biggest fraud: Germany’s claim that its cars are clean, or its claim of being a leader in climate protection. Both, it turns out, are very fake and even downright frauds. While German Chancellor Angela Merkel and German activists like going around and scolding Donald Trump for his “irresponsible” […]

Scientists Affirm: 'No, The Arctic Is Not Melting' ... 'Nothing Has Changed Since 1900'

Scientists Affirm: ‘No, The Arctic Is Not Melting’ … ‘Nothing Has Changed Since 1900’

Global Warming Theory ‘Completely Disconnected From the Observations’ Extensive analysis of temperature trends in the Arctic reveals that there has been no detectable long-term change since the beginning of the 20th century, and thus predictions of a sea ice-free Arctic in the coming decades due to dramatically rising temperatures are not rooted in observation. Butina, […]
