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”

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, […]
