Surprise! Spiegel Online Slams Profiteering From Climate Alarmism... Munich Re Admits: "No Climate Signal"

Surprise! Spiegel Online Slams Profiteering From Climate Alarmism… Munich Re Admits: “No Climate Signal”

Spiegel Online published two days ago an excellent article by science journalist Axel Bojanowski on the widespread “disinformation surrounding climate change” and the profit made from the hyping and exaggeration of weather extremes. Examples cited are the Deutsche Bundesbahn (German Railway), the reinsurance industry, foremost Munich Re, and alarmist climate scientists such as Potsdam Institute’s Stefan […]

Powerful Opposition To ‘Energiewende’ Storms Into German Parliament… “Eco-Populist Voodoo”

Green energy opposition becoming formidable force in Germany As Germany’s established CDU and SPD “mainstream” parties find themselves imploding, the smaller parties who oppose Germany’s out-of-control Energiewende (transition to green energies) are rapidly becoming a formidable force and making their presence felt in Germany’s national parliament like never before. For example Germany’s FDP Free Democrats, […]

Prominently featured was the western Pacific country of Japan. “Amazingly cold” Not only had it been cold and brutal in January, but the story was the same already back in mid December as well, as […]

New Paleoclimate Findings Show Medieval Warm Period Across Africa And Arabia…Natural Climate Drivers

Paleoclimate data still spotty and incomplete, leaving climate models vague, uncalibrated and filled with uncertainty Paleo-climatological data, used for the reconstruction of past climate from proxy records such as ice cores, tree rings, sediment cores etc., have not had adequate geographical coverage. Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania, where a sediment core was extracted. Credit: Andreas31, CC BY-SA 3.0. For […]

PIK Potsdam Climate Institute Emerges As A Non-Credible Outlier When It Comes To Hurricanes

PIK Potsdam Climate Institute Emerges As A Non-Credible Outlier When It Comes To Hurricanes

Hurricane activity trend declines significantly over the past 65 years Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt posted here yesterday results showing that  hurricane activity has decreased over the past decades, despite all the hysteria we’ve been hearing from the usual suspects. Data and studies show that Potsdam Institute thinly veiled claims that hurricanes are connected […]

Bitter Cold In Every Direction...Harsh Winter Conditions Grip Northern Hemisphere As Globe Cools

Bitter Cold In Every Direction…Harsh Winter Conditions Grip Northern Hemisphere As Globe Cools

Never mind the severe cold hitting the Super Bowl this year, or scientists lecturing us on global warming while their host resort Davos got buried in snow. There’s been a lot of cold gripping all over the northern hemisphere this winter – much more than many of us expected. Europe has also joined in on […]

World Leading Authority: Sea Level "Absolutely Stable"... Poor Quality Data From "Office Perps"...IPCC "False"

World Leading Authority: Sea Level “Absolutely Stable”… Poor Quality Data From “Office Perps”…IPCC “False”

German-speaking readers will surely want to save the text of an interview conducted by the online Baseler Zeitung (BAZ) of Switzerland with world leading sea level expert Prof. Nils-Axel Mörner. Photo right: Nils-Axel Mörner Few scientists have scientifically published as much on sea level as Mörner has. Yet because he rejects the alarmist scenarios touted by […]

Bewildered Scientists...A Global Warming Crisis Fails To Appear: Sea Level Rise Grinds To A Crawl

Bewildered Scientists…A Global Warming Crisis Fails To Appear: Sea Level Rise Grinds To A Crawl

Over the past months a spate of scientific papers published show sea level rise has not accelerated like many climate warming scientists warned earlier. The reality is that the rise is far slower than expected, read here and here. Alarmist bedwetting by scientists over sea level rise proving to have been needless. Photo: PIK climate […]

Predictions Of Snowless Winters Go Down In Flames As Northern Hemisphere Gets Buried Under Ice

Predictions Of Snowless Winters Go Down In Flames As Northern Hemisphere Gets Buried Under Ice

We all remember how some scientists (David Viner and Mojib Latif, for example) boldly announced some 18 years ago that snow and ice at latitudes 40 – 55°N would become rare. Yet looking at the latest data, we see that ironically it’s bare ground that has become “a thing of the past”. Spiegel science journalist […]
