New Paper: ‘Extremely High’ TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert ‘Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers’

Scientists Rebuke Claims Of Human Control Over Glacier Mass Balance “Natural climate variability still emerges as the key deciding element governing the Himalayan glacier mass balances.” – Shekhar et al., 2017 Yet another new paper has challenged to IPCC-endorsed conclusion that the Himalayan glaciers are melting rapidly due to anthropogenic climate change, and that these […]

New Papers: Seismic Activity Explains 1979-2016 Temperatures, ENSO Events Better Than CO2

New Papers: Seismic Activity Explains 1979-2016 Temperatures, ENSO Events Better Than CO2

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 […]

Flashback 2007: Scientists Reveal They 'No Longer Understand How Ozone Holes Come Into Being'

Flashback 2007: Scientists Reveal They ‘No Longer Understand How Ozone Holes Come Into Being’

Ozone Measurement Error   ‘Shatters’ Established Theory It was 10 years ago this month that scientists revealed an order-of-magnitude-sized error in molecular chemistry measurement that threatened to severely undermine the commonly accepted explanation for  how ozone depletion occurs. The iconoclastic discovery fomented “much debate and uncertainty in the ozone research community.”    The mechanism that causes polar […]

12 New Papers: North Atlantic, Pacific, And Southern Oceans Are Cooling As Glaciers Thicken, Gain Mass

12 New Papers: North Atlantic, Pacific, And Southern Oceans Are Cooling As Glaciers Thicken, Gain Mass

Graph Source Duchez et al., 2016 Contrary to expectations, climate scientists continue to report that large regions of the Earth have not been warming in recent decades. According to Dieng et al. (2017), for example, the global oceans underwent a slowdown, a pause, or even a slight cooling trend during 2003 to 2013.  This  undermines […]

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year...Without CO2 Flux

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year…Without CO2 Flux

New Paper: Modern Sea Levels Rising   20-30 Times Slower Than The Past Currently, sea levels are “believed to be” rising at a rate of 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year. This modern rate  –  just 0.17-0.18 of a meter per century – has remained relatively unchanged from the overall 20th century average, and there has been no statistically significant acceleration in […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
