Uncovered: Incoherent, Conflicting IPCC ‘Beliefs’ on Climate Sensitivity

For going on 3 decades now, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports have estimated that the climate’s sensitivity to the doubling of preindustrial levels of CO2 (from 280 ppm to 560 ppm) may range between 1.5°C to 4.5°C due significantly to the assumed “dangerous” warming amplification from positive water vapor feedback.  Despite years of […]

Scientists: Ocean Temps Vary 'Robustly' and 'Near-Synchronously' with Solar Activity

Scientists: Ocean Temps Vary ‘Robustly’ and ‘Near-Synchronously’ with Solar Activity

According to scientists, ocean temperatures have fluctuated up and down within a range of around 1 to 2°C for the last 1,000 years. During the Medieval Warm Period (~800 to 1,000 years ago) ocean temperatures were as warm or warmer than they are now.  This centennial-scale warming occurred during a period of high solar activity, […]

There’s No Observational, Physical Evidence That CO2 Heats Water

In examining the Skeptical Science (SkS) blog essay “How Increasing Carbon Dioxide Heats the Ocean“  written by Rob Painting (an “environmentalist, scuba diver, spearfisherman, kayaker and former police officer” who has “researched climate science, in an amateur capacity, for 4 years” according to his website bio), we learn that (A) the Sun heats the surface […]

Abundant Scientific Evidence That 'Global Warming' Is A Made-Up Concept

Abundant Scientific Evidence That ‘Global Warming’ Is A Made-Up Concept

The conceptualization of “global warming” has become so entrenched in the lexicon that few give much thought to its dubious derivation. Many assume that “global warming” actually means that all or nearly all of the globe is warming as a consequence of the “well-mixed” greenhouse gases in the atmosphere (i.e., CO2 concentrations have indeed reached […]

Germans Rejecting Wind Power …Public Health Issues, Industrial Blight, Damage To Ecosystems

Once welcome as a clean alternative for producing energy, wind turbines in Germany are today faced with ever more hostile political and social environments. As the turbines increase in size, so do their impacts on people and ecosystems that are near them. In the southern German town of Winterlingen hundreds of people recently packed into […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]
