2 New Papers: Temperatures, Sea Levels, Climate Dynamics 'Have No Apparent Relationship To Atmospheric CO2'

2 New Papers: Temperatures, Sea Levels, Climate Dynamics ‘Have No Apparent Relationship To Atmospheric CO2’

More Scientific Evidence For CO2’s Dubious Climate Impact Emerges Image Source: Robertson and Chilingar, 2017 According to the most basic precepts of anthropogenic global warming (AGW), variations in CO2 concentrations exert significant control on sea surface temperatures, glaciers, sea levels, and generalized climate dynamics (i.e., precipitation patterns). In particular, high CO2 concentrations, driven by human activity, are […]

New Paper: Rapid Glacier Melt DECELERATION For High Mountain Asia...Now Nearly IN BALANCE

New Paper: Rapid Glacier Melt DECELERATION For High Mountain Asia…Now Nearly IN BALANCE

Glacier Retreat Has Been Slowing During 2000-2016 A new satellite-based estimate of glacier mass change for High Mountain Asia (HMA), the world’s third largest glacier conglomeration after Antarctica and Greenland, reveals a relatively modest retreat rate for the first 17 years of the 21st century. The results from Brun et al. (2017) indicate that HMA glaciers are nearly […]

Scientists Affirm: 'No, The Arctic Is Not Melting' ... 'Nothing Has Changed Since 1900'

Scientists Affirm: ‘No, The Arctic Is Not Melting’ … ‘Nothing Has Changed Since 1900’

Global Warming Theory ‘Completely Disconnected From the Observations’ Extensive analysis of temperature trends in the Arctic reveals that there has been no detectable long-term change since the beginning of the 20th century, and thus predictions of a sea ice-free Arctic in the coming decades due to dramatically rising temperatures are not rooted in observation. Butina, […]

New AGU Presentation: 'No Increase In Earth’s Surface Temperature From Increase In CO2'

New AGU Presentation: ‘No Increase In Earth’s Surface Temperature From Increase In CO2’

Source: American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting At next month’s American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in New Orleans (US), an independent researcher named Trevor Underwood will be presenting an equation-rich analysis that thoughtfully undermines the perspective that increases in CO2 concentrations are a fundamental variable affecting climate. Instead, Underwood argues that the absorption band where […]

New Paper: Most Modern Warming, Including For Recent Decades, Is Due To Solar Forcing, Not CO2

New Paper: Most Modern Warming, Including For Recent Decades, Is Due To Solar Forcing, Not CO2

‘Two-Thirds Of Climate Warming’ Since 1750 Due To ‘Solar Causes’ – Dr. Alan D. Smith, Geoscientist Though advocates of the dangerous anthropogenic global warming (AGW) narrative may not welcome the news, evidence that modern day global warming has largely been driven by natural factors – especially solar activity – continues to pile up. Much of […]

New Atmospheric Sciences Textbook: Climate Sensitivity Just 0.4°C For CO2 Doubling

New Atmospheric Sciences Textbook: Climate Sensitivity Just 0.4°C For CO2 Doubling

CO2 Contribution: 0.15°C Since 1959  – Dr. B. Smirnov, Microphysics of Atmospheric Phenomena Purveyors of the viewpoint that rising CO2 emissions pose a grave threat to the planet via dangerous global-scale warming presuppose that the surface temperatures of the Earth are highly sensitive to parts per million (ppm) variations in atmospheric CO2 concentrations. And yet the accumulation of […]

Deconstruction Of The Critical YouTube Response To Our 400+ ‘Skeptical’ Papers Compilation

Below is a commentary addressing the YouTube response to the late October Breitbart headline that claimed the 400 papers (now 415) compiled here at NoTricksZone say that “Global Warming Is A Myth“. While the headline at Breitbart was presumably assembled for the expressed purpose of attracting readership (mission accomplished, if so), it will be explicitly […]

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm 'Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration' In Sea Level Rise

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm ‘Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration’ In Sea Level Rise

Scientists: ‘Loud Divergence Between Sea Level Reality And Climate Change Theory’ Global Sea Level ‘Acceleration’ Just 0.002 mm/year² According to peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science, anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the cause of Arctic sea ice decline.  In fact, peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science indicates the causal relationship is so direct and so linear that it can be said with […]

New Paper: Defying Models, There Has Been No Long-Term Linear Decline In Arctic Sea Ice

New Paper: Defying Models, There Has Been No Long-Term Linear Decline In Arctic Sea Ice

Uncoupled: CO2 And Sea Ice Anthropogenic CO2 emissions have risen linearly since the mid-1940s. According to climate models, anthropogenic CO2 emissions drive trends in polar sea ice.   The sea ice extent in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres should therefore gradually decline (linearly) as human emissions rise. However, neither the Arctic nor Antarctic sea ice […]

Thermal Engineer Claims Supernova Theory Explains Global Warming, Extinction Events, Ice Ages

Thermal Engineer Claims Supernova Theory Explains Global Warming, Extinction Events, Ice Ages

Do Supernova Events Cause Extreme Climate Changes? “Global warming will not be reduced by reducing man made CO2 emissions” In recent years, mass die-offs of large animals – like the sudden deaths of 211,000 endangered antelopes within a matter of weeks – have been described as “mysterious” and remain largely unexplained. Determining the cause of the […]

Recent CO2 Climate Sensitivity Estimates Continue Trending Towards Zero

Updated: The Shrinking CO2 Climate Sensitivity A recently highlighted paper published by atmospheric scientists Scafetta et al., (2017) featured a graph (above) documenting post-2000 trends in the published estimates of the Earth’s climate sensitivity to a doubling of CO2 concentrations (from 280 parts per million to 560 ppm). The trajectory for the published estimates of transient climate response […]

Could Earth’s Shifting Plates Be Driving Modern Climate? Within the last year, Dr. Arthur Viterito (geography professor) has published multiple scientific papers documenting the significant correlation (r=0.80) between the seismic activity changes in the Earth’s high geothermal flux areas (HGFA) and both El Niño events and global temperatures. The HGFA/global temperature correlation has been found to […]
