Retired Professor On Germany’s CO2 Reduction Effort: “Totally Idiotic What We Are Doing”

Two days ago I wrote of an interview with physicist Prof. Dr. Horst-Joachim Lüdecke, published at the website of the German Employers Association (DAV) here, on the minimal role of CO2 on the world’s climate. German professor calls climate protection a “dangerous, undemocratic ideology”. Due to the length of the interview I focused only on a part […]

Climate Alarmists Alarmed Public No Longer Panicked About The Climate, Demand More Doomsday Headlines!

Climate science critics Dr. Sebastian Lüning and professor Fritz Vahrenholt here present today some findings that climate alarmists are not very amused over: Climate alarmism has waned and is no longer making any headlines. The two co-authors of “The Neglected Sun” write at their site: ======================================== “People aren’t dumb. Climate alarmism just isn’t working. The […]

Analysis Finds No Correlation Between Glacier Melt And CO2, Melting Much Slower Today Than 1930s!

Analysis Finds No Correlation Between Glacier Melt And CO2, Melting Much Slower Today Than 1930s!

Are CO2 Emissions Driving Ice Melt, Sea Level Rise? By guest writer Kenneth Richard According to the below graph (Fig. 2 a) found in Gregory et al., 2013 in Journal of Climate (“Twentieth-Century Global-Mean Sea Level Rise: Is the Whole Greater than the Sum of the Parts?”), there was a very substantial increase in the glacier and ice sheet melt contribution […]

German Mainstream Parties In Collapse, Take Huge Blow In Municipal Elections…. Face Election Debacle In Baden Württemberg!

Germans often express dismay at the fact that American public is making Donald Trump a front runner. I’m often asked: “How can Americans be so stupid?” To answer that, lately I’ve been telling them to just look right at home in Germany. When elected officials don’t take the public seriously, then political heads roll. Welcome […]

60-Tonne Wind Turbine Rotor Crashes To Earth

UPDATE 03/03/2016:  WordPress issues now seem to be resolved. 🙂 ================================== The online SVZ here reported yesterday on a wind-turbine construction accident occurring in Southern Germany. Workers of the Hamburg-based Nordex company were operating a large hoisting crane by remote control as it lifted the 60-tonne wind turbine rotor assembly for mounting onto the 200-meter […]

German Consumers Paying Record Amount For Green Energy ...Energiewende On "Best Path To Financial Disaster"

German Consumers Paying Record Amount For Green Energy …Energiewende On “Best Path To Financial Disaster”

The online daily Berliner Zeitung (BZ) here reports that German consumers in 2015 have “never paid so much money for supporting renewable energy.” Wind energy is hugely expensive and doesn’t work well. Photo: NTZ Some 15 years ago German Environment Minister, Jürgen Trittin, wanted the public to believe that Germany’s Energiewende (transition to renewable energies) would only cost […]

Cold Shock Claims Dozens Of Lives In Tropical Asia Amid Record Lows...Taiwanese See Snow First Time In Their Lives!

Cold Shock Claims Dozens Of Lives In Tropical Asia Amid Record Lows…Taiwanese See Snow First Time In Their Lives!

For a planet that is supposedly seeing one record hot year after another, it sure strange is that there’s so much cold gripping vast areas of Asia. Chart right: East Asia is forecast to remain extremely frigid over the foreseeable future. Snowless winters, which according to climate scientists were supposed to become a thing of […]

Black New Year’s Eve …Nation Stunned…Now More Than 1400 Sexual Assaults On Women…Number Still Climbing

US News and World Report must be living on another planet, in some other galaxy. The US news magazine recently selected Germany as “the best country to live in” worldwide. Although Germany offers many great things, it is currently not really a very good place to be – especially if you are a woman. Never mind […]

Germany’s Sexual-Assault Chernobyl – Public Outraged As Media/Political Cover-Up Crumbles

A stunning story has developed and it is thoroughly embarrassing Germany’s (naïve) policy of welcoming everyone and anyone, from anywhere, and with little border control to speak of. As the world has come to learn of the mass gang-sexual-attacks by mobs of men in Cologne during the New Year’s Eve celebrations, what we have in […]

Wishing everybody Mele Kalikimaka! This wonderful mild Christmas in some areas is in large part a gift from this year’s “El Nino” – so enjoy it! PS: I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all readers, alarmist or skeptic, for making 2015 another successful year at NTZ!

New "Historical Draft" Is Delusional ...Will Go Down In History As Certificate Of Madness And Hysteria

New “Historical Draft” Is Delusional …Will Go Down In History As Certificate Of Madness And Hysteria

UPDATE: No surprise, but sadly, all countries signed the dumb treaty, which we know will be meaningless in curbing global CO2 emissions. The treaty is useless, vaguely binding and will not have any impact whatsoever. In a few days we will start hearing a chorus of dissatisfaction from reductions proponents about the treaty’s ineffectiveness. ====================== Here’s […]

FAZ Commentary Warns Of “Growing Impatience” Among Democracy-Hostile Scientists “Intoxicated by Knowledge”

Increasingly alarmist climate scientists, media members and politicians are openly challenging democracy, saying the people-represented system needs to be done away if there is to be any hope of averting major climate damage. Nico Stehr at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung here describes the growing dissatisfaction not only among the Tea Party or the UKIP, but also […]

How Holly Holm Dismantled, Demolished, De-Classified “Expert Consensus” On Projected UFC Fight Outcome

A bit off-topic today… The recent UFC women’s championship fight between loud-mouthed, über-cocky Rhonda Rousey (28) – the defending champion – and mild-mannered challenger Holly Holm is yet another example that vividly illustrates why consensus over the outcome of any complex future event among so-called “experts” is often not worth the paper it’s printed on. Like […]

Inconvenient Hurricane Shock Truth: Period 1871 - 1900 Saw 70% More Hits Than 1986-2015!

Inconvenient Hurricane Shock Truth: Period 1871 – 1900 Saw 70% More Hits Than 1986-2015!

Joe Bastardi at Weatherbell puts hurricanes in historical perspective at his latest Weatherbell Saturday Summary. He presents a fascinating statistic that tells us the alarmist claims being made today about higher and stronger storm frequency over the Atlantic are in fact a lot of hype and wild exaggeration. Joe Bastardi’s chart showing that USA saw far more hurricane […]

German View On “Shukla’s Gold”…It Shows There’s “Lots Of Money To Be Made With Climate Alarmism”

A summary of the Shukla affair – The German view. ======================================================== Generous climate alarmism: Former IPCC lead author took in $750,000 a year promoting climate catastrophe By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated/edited by P Gosselin] Recently at our site here we reported on some IPCC-friendly scientists who attempted – by using the US […]

Welcome Islamic Neighbors: Europe Welcomes You With Open Arms! ...Yours For The Taking!

Welcome Islamic Neighbors: Europe Welcomes You With Open Arms! …Yours For The Taking!

I’m feeling cynical this evening. Off topic… How incompetent and clueless are Europe’s leaders? Well this may be the first time in human history that Europe has chosen not to defend itself against an invasion. In fact it is even surrealistically welcoming it! Dear Islamists, you have been dreaming a long time of overrunning Europe, with […]

NOAA Data Show Outgoing Long Wave Infrared Radiation Higher This Decade – Planet Cools Slightly!

Global Energy Emissions (during the climate bet) By Robin Pittwood of the Kiwi Thinker Having just updated the climate bet, which confirms the lack of recent warming (ie: the ‘pause’ or ‘hiatus’ as some call it), I thought next we should take a look at global energy emissions on the same time comparative basis. For […]

Video Recorded By Drone Drives Home The Wind Park Devastation About To Be Wreaked On An Idyllic German Nature Refuge

Video Recorded By Drone Drives Home The Wind Park Devastation About To Be Wreaked On An Idyllic German Nature Refuge

Early last June I presented here a series of before-and-after photos showing the devastation by wind parkson the beautiful German countryside. The photos were presented by windflut-elpe.de, a site protesting wind parks in forests and natural heritage locations. That post generated a tremendous reaction, and was shared more than 4000 times in social media. Therefore […]

Study: German Scientists Conclude 20th Century Warming “Nothing Unusual” …Foresee “Global Cooling Until 2080”!

The Die kalte Sonne site here features a worrisome essay by German climate scientists Horst-Joachim Lüdecke, Dr. Alexander Hempelmann and Carl Otto Weiss. They carefully examined climate changes of the past and have found that the recent changes (of the last 40 years are nothing out of the ordinary and that we need to worry about […]

For Quality Life, Health And Virility, Ignore The Decades-Long Scientific Medical Consensus On Nutrition

UPDATE: Some have been claiming that I’m on a so-called paleo-diet. But that is not accurate. I guess I may be on something that resembles to a significant extent a paleo-diet, but it is not. I eat a fair amount of dairy products, which cavepeople didn’t eat. I thought the following was interesting: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-paleo-diet-has-it-wrong-cavemen-did-eat-carbs-2015-08-18. ================================== […]
