Russian Scientists Find ‘Appreciable Contribution’ From Natural Variability, Solar Forcing To Recent Warming

Most Of Warming Trend Since 1980s Is Naturally Driven, Not CO2-Driven According to a new statistical analysis of centennial-scale surface temperature changes, half (0.5 °C) of the warming trend over the last 135 years (0.95 °C) can be explained by both (a) the existence of commonly-occurring natural (non-anthropogenic) variations of temperature that can reach the […]

Leading Heat Transfer Physicists/Geologists Assert The Impact Of CO2 Emissions On Climate Is ‘Negligible’

Textbook Details Robust Planetary Theory Explaining Climate Change Without CO2 Wiley Textbook Image Source The increasingly corroborated atmospheric mass pressure (gravity) explanation for variances in planetary temperatures – which precludes a significant role for CO2 concentration changes – has now advanced from peer-reviewed scientific journals to university-level textbooks. The “adiabatic theory” of the greenhouse effect (adiabatic: […]

Since 1993, Greenland's Ice Sheet Melt Has Added Just 0.39 Of A Centimeter To Global Sea Levels

Since 1993, Greenland’s Ice Sheet Melt Has Added Just 0.39 Of A Centimeter To Global Sea Levels

Exposing ‘Staggering’ Ice Sheet Melt Deceptions In recent months, two new papers published in The Cryosphere have provided a condensed summary of the ice-melt and sea-level-rise consequences of global warming for the Arctic region. 1.  Between 1900 and 2010, the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) has melted so extensively and so rapidly that the GIS ice-melt contribution […]

Water Vapour  Climate Forcing ‘Up To 200 Times’ Greater, ‘Overrides Any Effect By CO2’ H. Douglas Lightfoot profile PDF Lightfoot and Mamer, 2017 (1) Robust scientific evidence shows the sun angle controls water vapour content of the atmosphere, the main component of back radiation, as it cycles annually. Back radiation, water vapour concentration and atmospheric temperature follow the […]

New Study: Electric Vehicle Use Does Not Reduce CO2 Emissions

New Study: Electric Vehicle Use Does Not Reduce CO2 Emissions

Negligible 4.9% Emissions Difference Between EVs And Petroleum Vehicles   According to a new paper published in the journal Issues in Science and Technology entitled “Electric Vehicles: Climate Saviors, Or Not?”, driving an electric vehicle (EV) rather than a conventional petroleum-powered vehicle effectively does nothing to reduce global-scale CO2 emissions. This is because charging EVs on […]

4 New Papers: Modern Warming Is Substantially Artificial, Traced To Urbanization, Bias

4 New Papers: Modern Warming Is Substantially Artificial, Traced To Urbanization, Bias

Scientists: Temperature Data Contamination Accounts For 33% – 75% Of Modern Warming Urban heat from paved roads, buildings, and machinery can artificially inflate temperatures substantially above measured temperatures from non-urban areas.  This introduces a significant non-climatic warming bias into long-term records. Heat from an urban (or highly populated) environment can artificially raise temperatures by as much […]

Scientists Find At Least 75% Of The Earth Has Not Warmed In Recent Decades

Scientists Find At Least 75% Of The Earth Has Not Warmed In Recent Decades

 The ‘Real Proxy’ Temperature Record  Hints Near-Global Cooling Has Begun As a new scientific paper (Turney et al., 2017) indicates, the Southern Ocean encompasses 14% of the Earth’s surface.  And according to regional temperature measurements that have apparently not been subjected to warming “corrections” by data adjusters, the Southern Ocean has been cooling in recent […]

Swiss Physicist Concludes IPCC Assumptions 'Violate Reality'...CO2 A 'Very Weak Greenhouse Gas'

Swiss Physicist Concludes IPCC Assumptions ‘Violate Reality’…CO2 A ‘Very Weak Greenhouse Gas’

 CO2 Contributed Only 0.12°C  To Global Temps Since 1850 A Swiss scientist known to have published hundreds of scientific papers in physics journals has authored a new scholarly paper that casts serious doubts on the effectiveness of CO2 as a greenhouse gas influencing Earth’s temperatures. This paper has been added to a growing volume of peer-reviewed scientific papers […]

New Paper Indicates Subantarctic Glacier Retreat More Extensive In 1700s Than Now

2nd Highest Subantarctic Glacier Advance Of Last 1,000 Years Occurred 50 Years Ago Yesterday we learned that a giant iceberg just split off from the Antarctic Peninsula. Most media outlets were uncharacteristically mild with their declarations of concern.  Even The Guardian pointed out that the breakup of the ice is naturally occurring, glaciologists are “not unduly concerned […]

Climate Activists Switch From Blaming Humans For Too Little And Now Too Much Rainfall…And Call It ‘Science’

Modern ‘Science’ Blames Humans For California Weather…If It’s Bad Image Source: Cook et al., 2010 In the present era of agenda-driven journalism, major news outlets often attempt to persuade readers that weather events occurring now have never happened before…and they are worsened by human-caused climate change. In 2015, Humans Caused Drought, Too Little Rainfall In California Global Warming Brought […]

Already 285 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

A Growing Volume Of Evidence Undercuts ‘Consensus’ Science During the first 6 months of 2017, 285 scientific papers have already been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by […]

Evidence Review Suggests Humans May Not Be The Primary Drivers Of CO2 Concentration Changes

Evidence Review Suggests Humans May Not Be The Primary Drivers Of CO2 Concentration Changes

Anthropogenic Emissions ≠ CO2 Concentration Changes For the last 3 years, human CO2 emissions rates have not risen.  In fact, according to the IEA, we burned slightly more fossil fuels in 2014 than we did in both 2015 and 2016. Despite the lack of growth – even slight decline – in human emissions rates during 2014 – […]

Scientific Papers Indicate Natural Processes Dominate Changes In Ozone Hole, Methane And CO2 Emissions

What If Human Emissions Aren’t All That Influential? We have been led to believe that we can control the size of the ozone hole and both methane and CO2 concentrations with our emissions. We have also been led to believe we control weather patterns (storminess, droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes); we control tropospheric, atmospheric, surface, and […]
