Spiegel: Experts Slam Proclamations Of An Anthropocene As “Political”… “Unscientific”…”Science Sloganeering”!

Science journalist and geologist Axel Bojanowski at the online German Spiegel news weekly comments on the drive by activists to proclaim an “Anthropocene” age because they claim that man has so much altered the planet and is adding a new geological layer in doing so. It all stems from accusations that man has altered the surface […]

Harvard Physicist, Experts Blast Manmade Climate Change Claims As "Activist", "Error-Prone", "Rodomontade"!

Harvard Physicist, Experts Blast Manmade Climate Change Claims As “Activist”, “Error-Prone”, “Rodomontade”!

An open letter about climate politics from seven distinguished climate researchers and friends of science follows: ============================================= Some 375 political activists attached to the National Academy of Sciences, supporting the totalitarian view on the climate question, have issued an open letter saying we “caused most of the historical increase in atmospheric levels of heat-trapping greenhouse […]

Another One Of Climate Science’s Central Claims To Go Down In Flames Tomorrow – Stay Tuned!

Today I can only offer a trailer on what will be published tomorrow, as the finishing touches are still ongoing. Over the past weeks NTZ has assisted in a comprehensive analysis of a large body of climate science literature. At this point I can only say that the results have one climate science’s central claims […]

Climate Site Slams Germany’s DWD Weather Service For “Heating Up” Summer Press Release

The mean temperature for Germany in August, 2016, was 17.7°C, which turns out to be 0.2°K colder than the figure reported in the overheated August 30, 2016 press release issued by the German DWD national weather service. The August result makes the month 0.7°C warmer than the 1981-2010 mean. Nothing extraordinary. However, the DWD has had a habit […]

Eco-Nonsense Now Spreads To Beer As Eco-Friendly Brewing Becomes The Latest Marketing Fad

Eco-Nonsense Now Spreads To Beer As Eco-Friendly Brewing Becomes The Latest Marketing Fad

A climate scientist brought my attention to a recent article reporting how one site has identified 13 beers that are climatically and environmentally correct to drink. I’m pretty sure his main objective was to show just how nutty the movement has become. Photo: Public domain. So I thought readers here might enjoy finding out how […]

How Climatologists Suddenly Turned On A Dime, “Shooed Away” Uncertainty To Promote “Scary Scenarios”

National Academy of Sciences (1975): “We do not know what causes…climatic change” By Kenneth Richard After having switched from warning the masses in the 1970s about imminent human-caused global cooling to warning the masses in the 1980s about an imminent human-caused global warming , the late Dr. Stephen Schneider suggested that, to avoid “potentially disastrous […]

U Of Leipzig Meteorology Researcher Lashes At Skeptics Of Climate Prophecy 2050 And Beyond

End-of-world warnings are as old as civilization itself. Of the thousands of charlatans who have prophesized end-of-world scenarios over the past thousands of years, none obviously have come true. So isn’t it only natural that sane people today would be a little, if not very skeptical of new announcements of a coming climate Armegeddon? A few […]

Species Extinction Rate Plummets Whopping 96% During Warming, Elevated CO2

Species Extinction Rate Plummets Whopping 96% During Warming, Elevated CO2

By Kenneth Richard Last month, National Geographic and other news organizations ran the disheartening headline “First Mammal Species Goes Extinct Due to Climate Change“1. The small rat, whose only habitat was “a single island off Australia,” hasn’t been spotted since 2009. Bramble cay melomy Melomys rubicola. In 2016 declared extinct on Bramble cay. Photo: State […]

SCANDAL? French Government Disappears Skeptic's Project From '100 Projects For The Climate' Contest!

SCANDAL? French Government Disappears Skeptic’s Project From ‘100 Projects For The Climate’ Contest!

It’s no secret that Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s outstanding, purely scientific Medieval Warming Period Map project has been held in very high regard within the science community. It’s also no secret that some government-funded scientists and a slew of activists are not at all happy that it has created controversy and cast serious doubt over climate science. Indeed Lüning’s […]

DiCaprio’s Disease: Survey Initiated By Munich Greens Show They’re The Biggest Abusers Of Airline Travel!

Georg Etscheit at the climate alarmist Klimaretter here whines about the Greens in Munich setting a poor example when it comes to (ab)using jet-fuel burning commercial airlines. This reminds us of serial private jet flier Leonardo DiCaprio, who took his private jet 12,000 kilometers and burned 30,000 liters of jet fuel to pick up an environment award. Munich Green […]

EU Reveals Its Inner Arrogance …Floats Plan To “Punish Parties That Don’t Represent EU Norms”

European climate science dissenters beware. Recall how the effort in the US of some 20 attorneys general to silence climate skeptics backfired. In the story the attorney generals wanted to go after oil companies and think tanks because the scientific views they held differed from their own. Public domain image Well, in Europe it is not […]

German DWD Weather Service Gets Caught Again... "Ice Saints" In Fact Have Gotten Colder!

German DWD Weather Service Gets Caught Again… “Ice Saints” In Fact Have Gotten Colder!

In Germany we keep hearing from some that spring in Central Europe is arriving earlier and earlier – due to climate warming. Unfortunately the data do not support the claim at all, it turns out. Data over the past 25 years in fact show that spring has been arriving later, and not earlier. Photo by: […]

FOIA E-Mails: Politically Inexperienced, Publicity-Hungry Scientists Get Burned In Political Arena

FOIA E-Mails: Politically Inexperienced, Publicity-Hungry Scientists Get Burned In Political Arena

Unfolding is the latest chapter in the sad state of climate science and the tragic consequences scientists face when they decide to go political without having the experience to do so. One has to wonder what these people were thinking when they expected dissenters to just roll over and waive their precious free speech rights. […]

Peer Review Veteran: “Peer Review Has Lots Of Problems …Tends To Stifle Non-Dogmatic Thinking”

What follows is a comment by a PhD (wishes to remain anonymous) on the subject of peer-review. I’ve decided to upgrade it to a post (some editing). ============================================ Peer Review Is Not Magic By The indomitable Snowman PhD I usually don’t comment.

‘Stalinist Conformity’: Swiss Professor Says ‘Young Researchers Forced To Submit To Mainstream Theories’

What the older science generation lacks in science competence, they more than make up for it in arrogance. US Attorneys General take aim at climate science dissidents So vulnerable, flawed, and under fire has climate science and other fields become that the only tactic left to defend the disintegrating positions is to use Stalinist measures to […]

Why Climate Science’s Condition Is Terminal …”Science” Has Suffered The Very Same Fatal Disease Before

If you’re looking for an outstanding, powerful analogue that shows the likely future fate of climate science, Ian Leslie (of the Guardian, no less!) has it here. Hat-tip: Mikky The high carb, low-fat science is crumbling with ever accelerating speed and in spectacular fashion. And because climate science was established in the very same way, it […]

Establishment In Death Throes …When Free Speech Rape Victims Get Blamed And Dissent Criminalized

Angry mobs of leftists attacking Donald Trump rallies and the US Justice Department threatening to criminalize climate science dissent are just the latest undeniable, very clear signs the entrenched Establishment is in all out panic mode. If anything is certain, it is that they’ve lost the argument, and violence seems to be their last resort. AP […]
