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 […]

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

German CO2 Reduction Targets "Completely Illusionary," Comments German National Daily

German CO2 Reduction Targets “Completely Illusionary,” Comments German National Daily

Game over for green energies and CO2 reductions? Journalist Daniel Wetzel of German national daily Die Welt here presents a devastating commentary on Paris Accord and Germany’s so far “illusionary” CO2 reductions targets. The German failure is a signal that could have significant global consequences. Wetzel not only calls the targets illusionary, he also believes the […]

German Scientists: Real Scandal Not Big Oil, Rather Cover-Up Of Natural Climate Factors

At Die kalte Sonne site here, geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt comment on the controversy surrounding allegations of Big Oil “covering up” knowledge of the impacts their products could have on climate. For example on April 16, 2018, renowned German weekly Spiegel reported on how “a confidential Shell study” showed the oil company […]

Swiss Meteorologist: "Terrible Quality Weather Apps" - Not Climate Change - "Killing People"

Swiss Meteorologist: “Terrible Quality Weather Apps” – Not Climate Change – “Killing People”

Weather tragedy in Swiss Alps claims 10 lives… Veteran Swiss meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann says 10 deaths caused by a “surprise snowstorm” had nothing to do with “climate change”, but more to do with poor human judgement and a misguided reliance on “terrible quality weather apps”. Last weekend a group of 6 skiers were killed by a “sudden […]

Inflating The Warming: German DWD Weather Service Extends String Of False (Overheated) Reports To Five
