German Meteorologist Dominik Jung: Climate Experts’ Forecasts Changing As Fast As The Weather!

Meteorologist Dominik Jung is sort of Germany’s (younger) version of America’s Joe Bastardi. Like Joe, he also runs his own private weather forecasting company and site, wetter.net, which serve agriculture, industry and the public. And as any serious meteorologist knows, success depends almost entirely on product quality, i.e. forecast accuracy. There’s absolutely no room for politicized science here. […]

Town Of Reutlingen Votes To Attempt Bad-Weather-Taming…In Bid To Reduce Hail Size, Storm Damage

Here’s the weather craziness of the week story. Officials of the German town of Reutlingen have voted to allocate 50,000 euros in a bid to tame the bad weather that typically occurs during thunderstorms. The plan is to hire an airplane to spray silver iodide into storm clouds with the hopes of reducing the size […]

Engineering Magazine: “Underestimated Danger: Every Month Ten Wind Turbines Get Destroyed by Fire”!

Engineering Magazine: “Underestimated Danger: Every Month Ten Wind Turbines Get Destroyed by Fire”!

Never has such a lousy product been given so many free passes: wind turbines. Yes, they are lousy products – sorry! In a free market, where poorly performing products get knocked out rapidly, wind turbines still can’t hold a candle to regular power plants. They only survive because of subsidies, and exorbitantly rosy promises. Burning […]

Developers To Clear 850,000 Sq M Of Virgin Forests On UNESCO Nature Reserve To Make Way For 700-Foot Turbines

Developers To Clear 850,000 Sq M Of Virgin Forests On UNESCO Nature Reserve To Make Way For 700-Foot Turbines

The days of an open welcome to “environmentally-friendly” wind parks in Germany are over. When the turbines were small-scale and novel, people were generally open to them. But now that they have reached skyscraper dimensions, have proven to be unsightly, and have demonstrated poor performance, they are not welcome anymore. German developers plan to install […]

So What’s The Real Reason South Polar Sea Ice Is Expanding? It’s The Cooling, Stupid!

So What’s The Real Reason South Polar Sea Ice Is Expanding? It’s The Cooling, Stupid!

By Ed Caryl During the last three years, since 2011, the ice around Antarctica has been growing, in most seasons, more than during any similar periods of the satellite era where we have that data. At first, the climate catastrophists ignored this phenomenon. When that became embarrassingly inconvenient, they began to blame it on instrument […]

Tol/Lomborg Becoming Powerful Voices Of Reason On Climate Policy In German Media: “1 Euro Costs…3 Cents Benefit”

Tol/Lomborg Becoming Powerful Voices Of Reason On Climate Policy In German Media: “1 Euro Costs…3 Cents Benefit”

It seems that it is beginning to dawn on some of Europe’s mainstream media: The transition to green energies is turning out to be ten or even 100 times more expensive than what they were led to believe just a few years ago. Increasingly we have been seeing reports featuring renowned climate economists such as […]

Why Does The Solar Cycle NOT Show Up In Climate Data?

Why Does The Solar Cycle NOT Show Up In Climate Data?

By Ed Caryl Several researchers have noted that the 11-year solar cycle does not show up in temperature or precipitation data. Most recently, Dr. David Evans has introduced his “notch filter” answer to the problem. I think the answer is much simpler. The solar influence on earth has several components. The Total Solar Insolation (TSI), […]

Spreading Climate-Religion Wackiness… Now “Mobile Phones Are Climate-Killers”…”13 Megatonnes Of CO2″!

Spreading Climate-Religion Wackiness… Now “Mobile Phones Are Climate-Killers”…”13 Megatonnes Of CO2″!

Just a couple of anecdotes today to illustrate how wacky the climate-change religion is getting. First is a short blurb appearing at the online Linux Magazine bearing the title: “Mobile phones are climate killers“. This is for real. Using your mobile phone and sending text messages apparently is contributing to bad weather and the death of […]

Leading German Private Commercial Meteorologist: “No Statistical Basis” Showing Winters Are Getting Warmer

Private commercial meteorologist are always under pressure to produce reasonably accurate forecasts for their clients and to stick to the best available science. If their models and work consistently produce false results, then it is not long before they find themselves looking for a new line of work. There’s no room for politics in their […]

NCEP Data Show June 2014 Among The Coldest This Century! Four Of Five Coldest In The Last 5 Years

UPDATE: Read meteorologist Joe D’Aleo: Should you trust NOAA claims about May and June records? And: Who needs Antarctic data or temps near ice. ******************************** Some government scientists, it seems, are so obsessed and convinced with their global warming theory that they’d rather alter the observed data to suit their theory than to alter their theory […]

Germany’s Habitually AWOL Green Energy…Installed Wind/Solar Often Delivers Less Than 1% Of Rated Capacity!

Germany’s Habitually AWOL Green Energy…Installed Wind/Solar Often Delivers Less Than 1% Of Rated Capacity!

Germany today likes to boast a total of 36,000 megawatts of installed photovoltaic capacity and over 30,000 MW capacity of wind power. Theoretically at noon on a sunny, windy day Germany could cover almost all of its electric power demand, which at noon on a workday is roughly 70,000 megwatts. But anyone familiar with Germany’s climate knows the country’s […]

German Wind Turbine Investors Dissolve Operating Company After 13 Years Of Poor Returns, Technical Failures

There are lots of claims on how successful Germany’s renewable energy program has been. Feed-in tariffs mandated by the government guaranteed profits for windpark investors and operators. You couldn’t lose. So it seemed at first. Unfortunately outputs promised by wind turbine manufacturers and proponents have fallen short of expectations. Moreover, high maintenance costs have in […]
