Germany’s Research Minister Sees “Advanced Development Of Climate Models” …To Be Used For “Regional Adaptation Strategies”!

Germany’s Research Minister Sees “Advanced Development Of Climate Models” …To Be Used For “Regional Adaptation Strategies”!

Judging by the German government’s own press release (from the Ministry of Environment) regarding the release of the new IPCC report, one could easily argue that it is in a state of complete confusion. Federal Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks and Federal Research Minister Johanna Wanka see the latest IPCC report “as further proof that urgent […]

Plots Show It Should Be Clear That Something Else Besides CO2 Is In Charge…CO2 Correlates Poorly

Plots Show It Should Be Clear That Something Else Besides CO2 Is In Charge…CO2 Correlates Poorly

CO2 or Ocean Cycles? By Ed Caryl We are all aware (or should be) of the warming that took place from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. The calamitologists are firmly convinced that this rise in temperature was due to rising CO2 in the same period. The lukewarmists think it was a combination of factors that […]

Michael Making-It-All-Up Mann? Climate Audit: Also Mann’s Claim Of Exoneration By Muir Russell Is Invalid

Climate scientist Michael Mann’s perception of reality may be formed more by what he desires to see than what he actually sees. For example: 1.)  Despite reams of proxy data and historical records showing that the Earth’s temperature behaved sinusoidally over the last 1000 years, Mann only sees a hockey stick behavior. 2) Despite the […]

Giant Money-Sucking Euro-Vortex. Major EU Survey: Climate Is Irrelevant Fringe Issue That Costs Hundreds Of Billions!

Giant Money-Sucking Euro-Vortex. Major EU Survey: Climate Is Irrelevant Fringe Issue That Costs Hundreds Of Billions!

What would be the appropriate thing to say about a government that pours a monstrously disproportionate amount of money into an issue no one really cares about, and does so at the huge expense of the very issues that people really do care about? Hat-tip: Die kalte Sonne and newnostradamusofthenorth.blogspot. I’d say it’s just a […]

Disappearing Excuses…Aerosols Likely Not Behind The Warming Pause

Disappearing Excuses…Aerosols Likely Not Behind The Warming Pause

Why The Hiatus? By Ed Caryl One of the climatologist’s explanations for the 17-year hiatus in global warming is the effect of aerosols. This explanation seems weak for the simple reason that we don’t see aerosols in this time period. We do see the impact of aerosols from volcanic activity in previous periods, however. Here […]

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi On NASA November Temperature: “A Fraudulent Report… Tampering With Data”

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi On NASA November Temperature: “A Fraudulent Report… Tampering With Data”

Joe Bastardi at his Saturday Summary here tells us what’s already known: The claim that November 2013 was the hottest month ever is fraudulent. He slams NASA and NOAA for picking data that solely suits an agenda. At the 6-minute mark Bastardi shows the GISS temperature trend from 1999. A clear cooling trend is shown…before […]

German Scientists Show Natural Climate Cycles Dominated Over Last 7000 Years…Blaming Man Is “Witch-Hunting”

Another nail in the coffin of man-made extreme weather nonsense: ——————————— New study from the Geosciences Center Potsdam: There have been 18 flooding phases in upper Austria over the last 7000 years By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Tanslated, edited by P. Gosselin) The pattern in society today is clear to see. Whenever a […]

Spiegel Interview With Film-Maker: Climate Communication A Huge Failure…”Most Boring Subject On Earth”!

Spiegel Interview With Film-Maker: Climate Communication A Huge Failure…”Most Boring Subject On Earth”!

Scientist turned film-maker Randy Olson is interviewed here by Spiegel Online’s science journalist Axel Bojanowski. From the interview it becomes glaringly clear that the AGW movement has failed to communicate its message of climate catastrophe and the need to profoundly re-order society. It’s over. Spiegel Science journalist. Source: Twitter. Olson starts by saying that climate […]

Can Missing Sea Ice In The Arctic Be Really Responsible For Record Snow And Cold In The Middle East – 7000 Km Away?

Can Missing Sea Ice In The Arctic Be Really Responsible For Record Snow And Cold In The Middle East – 7000 Km Away?

Lots of reports on bitter cold gripping various parts of ther globe. German site wetter.net here reports on cold gripping Turkey and the Turkish Riviera, which is typically a place tourists like to go to for warmth and sunshine. These locations are far away from the Arctic, and are certainly a result of weather driven by […]

Happy Second Advent…Tired Of All The Christmas Tackiness? A Video Of Christmas In Germany…

When it comes to Christmas, you have to hand it to the Germans. No one celebrates it like they do. Many of the old Christmas traditions we so very much cherish today originate in Germany. Here’s a video of Christmas market activity. (Don’t worry, it’s not superimposed with “Last Christmas” by Wham). Perhaps a few of […]

On Climate Science Should We Believe A College Dropout Who Has Nothing More Than A High School Degree?

Hollywood actor George Clooney recently told reporters: “If you have 99 percent of doctors who tell you ‘you are sick’ and 1 percent that says ‘you’re fine,’ you probably want to hang out with, check it up with the 99. You know what I mean? The idea that we ignore that we are in some […]

Cosmic Rays And Impact On Climate

Cosmic Rays And Impact On Climate

By Ed Caryl Henrik Svensmark wrote the book on cosmic rays, their possible effect on clouds, and thus effect on climate, as well as numerous papers on the subject. The CERN CLOUD experiment has looked for proof of the mechanism. A recent paper by Spencer and Braswell has looked at the relationship between clouds and temperature […]

German Media Supercharge Hyperbole And Drama In Wake Of Haiyan: Now Upgrading To “Climate Apocalypse”

Germans generally are very critical people, and when things aren’t exactly as they should be, they tend to get awfully bent out of shape over it. Anything outside specifications quickly gets labeled by Germans as a “disaster”. And if it meanders beyond that, it gets labeled a catastrophe. Example: if Germany loses a World Cup football game, […]
