Weather Statistics Show June Mean Temperature In Germany Hasn’t Changed in 80 Years!

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning und Professor Fritz Vahrenholt June brings with it sunshine and warmth – Germany can rely on that. The German June mean temperature, however, has hardly changed over the past 85 years, as the official weather data of the German DWD National Weather Service confirm: Figure: June mean temperature trend in Germany […]

Technical Problems …Two More Huge German Offshore Wind Parks Cut Off From Grid!

Good thing Germany still has reliable sources of energy, such coal and nuclear power, online. Otherwise the citizens would find themselves sitting in the dark and seeing their food spoiling away in fridges and freezers. Turbines over troubled waters.

Germany’s ‘Die Welt’: The Paris Climate Treaty And “The Absurd Excrescence Of Climate Protection”!

German flagship national daily Die Welt has a commentary by Daniel Wetzel on a new report just released in Berlin by Greenpeace Energy, which outlines what Germany needs to do in order to fulfill the Paris Treaty. “Unrecognizable in just a few years” So profound would be the ramifications of doing what is necessary to […]

Paging Attorneys General! …

2016 Scientific Consensus: Climate Models Aren’t Working By Kenneth Richard In a 2015 editorial on the dire consequences of human-caused climate change, Marcia McNutt, editor of the journal Science, stated with conviction that “the time for debate has ended.”   It’s the “action” of reducing our CO2 emissions that is now “urgently needed” instead of debating […]

New Paper Finds That Even Seismic Activity Correlates Better With Warming Than CO2!

The correlation between seismic activity (geothermal flux) as a natural mechanism in the 1979 to 2015 global warming is stronger than the correlation with carbon dioxide during the same period. Hat-tip: Kenneth Richard Viterito, 2016 The Correlation Of Seismic Activity And Recent Global Warming The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change states with high confidence […]

Spiegel Science Editor: "Surprises Me Again And Again How Some React To Critical Articles On Climate Science"

Spiegel Science Editor: “Surprises Me Again And Again How Some React To Critical Articles On Climate Science”

On June 8 Spiegel science editor Axel Bojanowski wrote a rather harsh piece criticizing recent claims in the German media that “heavy rainfalls” were becoming more frequent in Germany when in fact there is no statistical evidence to support the claim. Spiegel journalist, Axel Bojanowski. Photo: Axel Bojanowski. He even went so far to call the claims […]

Rigged Contest... French Government Disqualifies Skeptic Climate Project, Claiming It "Did Not Fulfill Criteria"!

Rigged Contest… French Government Disqualifies Skeptic Climate Project, Claiming It “Did Not Fulfill Criteria”!

Now the latest on the French government disappearing a skeptic project from a climate contest. In a contest that is set up to find the best solutions to a “problem”, it is not always wise to propose irrefutable scientific evidence that shows the “problem” does not even exist, and thus making the contest a waste […]

SCANDAL? French Government Disappears Skeptic's Project From '100 Projects For The Climate' Contest!

SCANDAL? French Government Disappears Skeptic’s Project From ‘100 Projects For The Climate’ Contest!

It’s no secret that Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s outstanding, purely scientific Medieval Warming Period Map project has been held in very high regard within the science community. It’s also no secret that some government-funded scientists and a slew of activists are not at all happy that it has created controversy and cast serious doubt over climate science. Indeed Lüning’s […]

Meteorologist Bastardi: S. Hemisphere Surface Temps "Really Tanking" As Globe Cools

Meteorologist Bastardi: S. Hemisphere Surface Temps “Really Tanking” As Globe Cools

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi tweeted at Twitter the latest surface temperarture developments. I posted on this here yesterday. Joe tweeted the following chart by Dr. Ryan Maue: It shows how the surface temperature for the southern hemisphere is well into the cooler-than-normal territory, now close to a full degree Kelvin cooler than April’s peak. The black […]

Powerful Natural Oceanic Factor Confirmed ….Global Surface Temperatures Continue Their Fall!

Schneefan at his site here writes about the unusually wet weather Europe has been experiencing lately. This has to be upsetting to global climate modelers and scientists, who years ago claimed Europe would have to expect hot, dry summers involving severe periods of droughts. That prediction has turned out to be totally wrong. The very […]

CO2 Warming Grossly Exaggerated… 50+ Published Papers Find Extremely Low Climate Sensitivity To Doubled CO2!

By Kenneth Richard When it comes to climate’s sensitivity to increases the CO2 concentration, the commonly stated assumption – based on modeled calculations – is that the resulting temperature change when CO2 concentrations are doubled from 275 ppm (pre-industrial) to 550 ppm is about 1.2°C. This is the direct result reported from doubling CO2 concentrations […]

Germany's CO2 Reduction Targets Cast Into "Serious Jeopardy" As Country Overhauls Policies

Germany’s CO2 Reduction Targets Cast Into “Serious Jeopardy” As Country Overhauls Policies

The English language version of public broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) reports the latest on the unavoidable and what many critics are calling as long overdue reforms of Germany’s renewable energies feed in act (EEG) as the country reels from extremely high costs and daunting technical challenges. Pulling the reins on Germany’s wildly fluctuating sun and wind […]

Alarmist "Real Climate" Scientist Stefan Rahmstorf's "Bitter Defeat" As Theory Gets Falsified

Alarmist “Real Climate” Scientist Stefan Rahmstorf’s “Bitter Defeat” As Theory Gets Falsified

Dr. Sebastian Lüning writes at the Die kalte Sonne site that alarmist climate scientist Stefan Rahmstorf has been shown to be wrong with his idea of a weakening Atlantic Current. It turns out that natural factors are dominating. Image: NASA (public domain) ================================================ Bitter defeat for Stefan Rahmstorf: Weakening of the Atlantic Current from 2004 […]

New Paper By Zhou et al Surprises! …Heavy Precipitation Under Global Warming Likely “Overestimated”

Yesterday I posted on Spiegel reporting no precipitation trend changes in Germany from warming.  Today’s post once again shows the alleged link is not what we are often told it is. ================================================ Max Planck Institute: Coupling of extreme extreme precipitation to climate warming weaker than feared By Dr. Sebastian Lüning und Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German […]

Spiegel Calls Recent Extreme Weather Claims “A Climate Bluff”. Data Show “No Recognizable Increase”!

Parts of Germany have been hit hard by unusually harsh downpours, flooding and thunderstorms over the recent days, prompting some alarmist scientists to barge into TV and radio studios to announce it’s due to human-made climate worsening. Now Spiegel science journlalist Axel Bojanowski comments on this behavior in a commentary titled: “Heavy rains in Germany: […]

Climate Science Consensus In Turmoil. New Studies Soundly Refute Antarctic Ice Melt Projections!

Scientists: Warming causes Antarctic ice sheet growth, and lower sea levels By Kenneth Richard While many scientists are projecting rapid sea level rise as a result of a warmer Antarctica and consequent ice sheet melting, other scientists are projecting that the surface of the Antarctic ice sheet will gain in mass because a warmer Antarctica means snow and ice accumulation will outpace the […]
