Right! Tiny 0.01% Of Atmosphere And 0.01% Of Earth’s Biomass Drive Nearly 100% Of Climate!

Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski at Twitter posted a couple of comments that got me wondering about man’s role on climate. The first comment was a tweet about NASA’s Jim Bridenstine who reportedly went from being a “climate denier” to changing his mind and confirming that “climate change is caused by humans”. Readers will note that […]

Solar Activity Drought: Now Only 28% Of What Is Normal...Arctic Sea Ice Volume Greater Than 2014!

Solar Activity Drought: Now Only 28% Of What Is Normal…Arctic Sea Ice Volume Greater Than 2014!

The Sun in April 2018 By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited and summarized by P Gosselin) The sun was inactive in April, as we currently find ourselves in the minimum between solar cycle (SC) 24 and the coming solar cycle 25. The recorded mean sunspot number (SSN) for April was 8.9, which is only […]

New Study: Solar Module Owners Sitting On A Pile Of Hazardous Lead And Cadmium

Dubbed as a clean source of energy, new research findings show that home and property owners producing “clean, CO2-neutral” solar electricity with solar modules may in fact soon find themselves sitting on a pile of hazardous waste once the module lifetime expires. In many countries, it is illegal to simply discard hazardous materials into the […]

Sobriety Returning To Germany…Leaders Finally Realizing Green Energies Are Fraught With Huge Obstacles

At the site of Germany’s Arbeitgeberverband (Federation for German Employers) Dr. Björn Peters wrote a piece describing the recent “Baden-Badener Energiegesprächen“, an energy pow-wow where political and industry leaders met for 2 days to discuss Germany’s energy future. “Surprised by the realism” From the two days of presentations, speeches and discussions, there are clear indicators that German […]

Scientists Have Found The 'Missing Link' From Sunspot Activity To Cosmic Rays-Clouds To Climate Change

Scientists Have Found The ‘Missing Link’ From Sunspot Activity To Cosmic Rays-Clouds To Climate Change

Hailed as ‘the last piece of the puzzle’ in codifying our understanding of the mechanism(s) that cause climate changes, scientists are increasingly turning to Sun-modulated cosmic ray flux and cloud cover variations as the explanation for decadal- and centennial-scale global warming and cooling.  In other words, climate changes are increasingly being attributed to natural variability, […]

The War On Diesel Cars Takes A Hit: German Ministry Of Environment Accused of Spreading “Bogus” Findings

Recent German Ministry of Environment findings showing 6000 premature deaths annually due to nitrogen dioxide (stemming in large part from diesel cars) called “bogus”, made up “horror-news” and “fear mongering”. A study commissioned by the German Ministry of Environment and released in March found that nitrogen dioxide, in large part emitted by diesel engines, had a […]

Gore And Hansen Join “False Prophets Hall of Fame” As Arctic Ice Volume Now Only 4% Below Mean!

Japanese skeptic blogger Kirye posted here at Twitter the latest news on Arctic sea ice volume, which earlier this spring took a sudden and unexpected jump upwards – adding some 2 trillion cubic meters. What follows is the latest chart from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI): Source: DMI. As the chart shows, Arctic sea ice volume […]

German Green Energy Only “Efficient” If Everyone Else’s Is Inefficient, Says German Minister Of Economics

Parts of Germany’s political leadership appear to be waking up to the harsh realities of green energies (wind and sun) and their inefficiencies. Hat-tip: Die kalte Sonne “Economic Minister accepts true condition of Energiewende” The website of German national daily “Welt” here reported last month that Germany’s powerful Minister of Economics, Peter Altmaier “accepts the […]

6 New Papers: Climate Models Are Literally Worth ZERO - Even Water Vapor + Feedback 'Does Not Exist'

6 New Papers: Climate Models Are Literally Worth ZERO – Even Water Vapor + Feedback ‘Does Not Exist’

The abysmal track record of computer models in simulating climate trends has increasingly been highlighted in the scientific literature.  Recently published papers indicate that in some cases climate models actually get it right zero percent of the time (Luo et al., 2018; Hanna et al., 2018), or that hydrological models are off by a factor of […]

Europe's Top Climate Scientist Loses It: Claims Mankind Now Undergoing Climate-Related "Collective Suicide Attempt"...Rapid "Mass Extinction"!

Europe’s Top Climate Scientist Loses It: Claims Mankind Now Undergoing Climate-Related “Collective Suicide Attempt”…Rapid “Mass Extinction”!

Outgoing director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) believes mankind, through its activities, is headed for a “mass extinction” event and an anthropogenic calamity comparable to a geological scale asteroid hit. Outgoing Potsdam Institute director Hans-Joachim “John” Schellnhuber tells German national daily that mankind has run out of time and faces “mass extinction” and […]

Japan's Media Blackout: Findings That Hurricane Intensity Driven By Natural Oceanic Cycles Go Unreported

Japan’s Media Blackout: Findings That Hurricane Intensity Driven By Natural Oceanic Cycles Go Unreported

Media in typhoon-prone Japan ignore new important findings suggesting hurricanes and typhoon intensification speed depends mostly on natural oceanic cycles, and not related to atmospheric CO2. Recently I posted on the surprising and science-realistic German DLF national public radio report on how hurricanes are intensifying more quickly today than they did 30 years ago. Findings by […]

New Paper: CO2 Emissions From Biofuels Are Worse Than Coal, Yet EU Says Biofuels Are 'Carbon Neutral'

New Paper: CO2 Emissions From Biofuels Are Worse Than Coal, Yet EU Says Biofuels Are ‘Carbon Neutral’

Governments promote biofuels as renewable, carbon-neutral resources that serve to reduce CO2 emissions.  Meanwhile, scientists have determined that biomass burning generates more CO2 emissions per kWh than burning coal does, and the projected rapid growth in biofuel use will only serve to ‘increase atmospheric CO2 for at least a century’.  Sterman et al., 2018 “[G]overnments […]

Climate Heresy…German DLF National Public Radio Reports Observed Hurricane Changes Are Natural!

Here’s something you don’t witness very often…German national public radio telling listeners that natural factors are behind observed changes in something related to climate. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the German media claim storms are linked to our disdainful energy gluttony. So it comes as quite a shock when you hear […]

Arctic Adds Amazing 2 Trillion (2,000,000,000,000) Tonnes Of Sea Ice Since 2016…Enough To Circle Earth 50,000 Times!

We’ve heard about all the cold and icy weather reports and results coming from all corners of the planet lately, and so naturally most of us sense that it just doesn’t jive with all the alarmist global warming claims and rhetoric we hear. Tremendous ice growth For example over the past winter the Arctic ice cap […]

Activists Continue To Peddle Unsupportable Claims Of NEVER-BEFORE Climate Alarm, Ignoring New Science

Activists Continue To Peddle Unsupportable Claims Of NEVER-BEFORE Climate Alarm, Ignoring New Science

The peer-reviewed scientific literature is teeming with new evidence supporting the skeptical viewpoint that modern climate changes are neither unprecedented or unusual — nor do they fall outside the range of natural variability.  For example, (1) the Arctic’s Bering Sea surface was several degrees warmer and sea-ice-free all year round earlier in the Holocene. (2) […]
