Scientists Affirm: 'No, The Arctic Is Not Melting' ... 'Nothing Has Changed Since 1900'

Scientists Affirm: ‘No, The Arctic Is Not Melting’ … ‘Nothing Has Changed Since 1900’

Global Warming Theory ‘Completely Disconnected From the Observations’ Extensive analysis of temperature trends in the Arctic reveals that there has been no detectable long-term change since the beginning of the 20th century, and thus predictions of a sea ice-free Arctic in the coming decades due to dramatically rising temperatures are not rooted in observation. Butina, […]

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm 'Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration' In Sea Level Rise

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm ‘Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration’ In Sea Level Rise

Scientists: ‘Loud Divergence Between Sea Level Reality And Climate Change Theory’ Global Sea Level ‘Acceleration’ Just 0.002 mm/year² According to peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science, anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the cause of Arctic sea ice decline.  In fact, peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science indicates the causal relationship is so direct and so linear that it can be said with […]

New Paper: Defying Models, There Has Been No Long-Term Linear Decline In Arctic Sea Ice

New Paper: Defying Models, There Has Been No Long-Term Linear Decline In Arctic Sea Ice

Uncoupled: CO2 And Sea Ice Anthropogenic CO2 emissions have risen linearly since the mid-1940s. According to climate models, anthropogenic CO2 emissions drive trends in polar sea ice.   The sea ice extent in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres should therefore gradually decline (linearly) as human emissions rise. However, neither the Arctic nor Antarctic sea ice […]

Surprise: Defying Models, Antarctic Sea Ice Extent 100 Years Ago Similar To Today

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt German text edited/translated by P Gosselin) Satellite measurements of Antarctic sea ice do not go back even 40 years. That’s not very much, especially when we consider that many natural climate cycles have periods of 60 years and more. Luckily we have the field of climate reconstruction. Using […]

Unanticipated Stability: Latest Polar Conditions Show No Signs Of Global Warming Melting

Weather and climate analyst Schneefan here writes of “early frost” in the Arctic and how Greenland snow and ice have grown after being hit by a “snow bomb”. This contradicts the expectations of global warming alarmists. The polar summer this year appears to have ended prematurely. The mean temperature of the central Arctic above 80°N […]

Polar Stability: Antarctic Cold Deepens, Arctic Refuses To Melt Faster In June/July 2017

Schneefan at his excellent German climate and weather site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de here reports that Arctic sea ice has grown in mass recently, defying the doomsday scenarios that a re-hyperventilating Al Gore has been hawking lately. Schneefan writes that Arctic sea ice volume at the start of August at about the mean of the 2004 – 2013 […]

New Studies Show Oceans Absorbing Atmospheric CO2 …”Putting Brakes On Climate Change”

South Polar Sea removing large quantities of CO2 from the atmosphere By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) About half of the CO2 emitted by man gets absorbed by the oceans and so does not stay in the atmosphere. Here there are certain areas of the ocean that are […]

Swiss Daily, German Scientist Slam Reporting U of Exeter Antarctic Findings… “An Abuse Of Science”!

A commentary appearing here at the Swiss Baseler Zeitung (BAZ) slams a recently published British paper on moss growth in Antarctica that gave the impression the south polar continent was greening up due to climate change. The BAZ writes that the paper is an example of “how today science is manipulated and used for political purposes“. […]

Euopean Climate Institute EIKE Says Antarctica Ice Calving “Totally Normal”, Natural Causes

The Vice President of the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) Michael Limburg wrote that the recent ice chunk breaking off the Antarctic ice shelf has everything to do with natural cyclic calving, and that the media reporting has been mostly alarmist hype. EIKE writes: Antarctic ice shelf breaking is a totally normal […]

New Paper Indicates Subantarctic Glacier Retreat More Extensive In 1700s Than Now

New Paper Indicates Subantarctic Glacier Retreat More Extensive In 1700s Than Now

2nd Highest Subantarctic Glacier Advance Of Last 1,000 Years Occurred 50 Years Ago Yesterday we learned that a giant iceberg just split off from the Antarctic Peninsula. Most media outlets were uncharacteristically mild with their declarations of concern.  Even The Guardian pointed out that the breakup of the ice is naturally occurring, glaciologists are “not unduly concerned […]

The ‘Pause’ Returns As Global Temperatures Plummet, Warming Hiatus To Extend To 20 Years!

It was just reported that Greenland set a new all-time July cold record, where the mercury plummeted to -33°C. Read details here. What follows are excerpts from the most recent analysis of global temperature at wobleibtdieglobaleerwaermung.wordpress.com. A Greenland record low shouldn’t come as a surprise since in the wake of the recent El Nino global temperatures […]

Antarctic Climate Alarm Silenced: Ice Mass Stable, Recently Published Studies Show

The Good News: East Antarctic Ice Is And Remains Stable By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated, edited by P Gosselin) In March, 2015 there was a climate alarm at German online news weekly Focus: Climate warming Gigantic Antarctic glacier is melting – Holland in an emergency: sea level rise threatens […]

Flashback 1978: Scientist Predicts 10°C Warming, 5 Meter Sea Level Rise, 660 ppm CO2…By 2028!

AGW ‘Disaster’ Predictions Recycled 1978: 5 Meter Sea Level Rise By 2028  2015: 10 Feet Sea Level Rise By 2065  Forecasting human-caused climate disaster is anything but new. Nearly 40 years ago, a landmark paper was published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature providing a dapper rubric for the modern human-caused climate disaster papers to follow. […]

Antarctica Record High Temp Of 19.8°C In Fact Set 35 Years Ago – When CO2 Was Low

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt On March 1st Arizona State University reported on Antarctica’s record high temperature. Surprisingly the record was set not this year, or even this decade, rather it was set in the year 1982: World Meteorological Organization verifies highest temperatures for Antarctic region ASU climate expert, WMO rapporteur talks about […]

New Paper Indicates Antarctica Has Been Gaining Mass Since 1800

New Paper Indicates Antarctica Has Been Gaining Mass Since 1800

Antarctica Has Been Gaining Ice, Lowering Sea Level For Centuries “Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away” — NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses For decades scientists have suggested that the effects of a climatic warming would likely lead to an […]

20+ Scientists: 'No Continent-Scale Warming Of Antarctic Temperature Is Evident In The Last Century'

20+ Scientists: ‘No Continent-Scale Warming Of Antarctic Temperature Is Evident In The Last Century’

Two More New Papers Document No Warming Trend In Antarctica Image Source: State of the Climate, 2016 For several decades now, Antarctica has not been cooperating with the “global” warming narrative, as the continent as a whole has not been warming. Several scientific papers have been published recently that document the lack of an anthropogenic […]

Solar Activity Continues Near 200-Year Low. And Antarctic Sea Ice Drop Caused By Natural Factors

The Sun In February and Arctic Sea Ice Von Frank Bosse und Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated and condensed [due to time constraints] by P. Gosselin) The star at the center of our solar system was also very inactive last month. The determined sunspot number SSN of 26.1 was only 50% of what is normal. Fig. 1: Mean […]

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi Calls Claims Weather Events Are Sign Of Climate Change "Looney Bin"

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi Calls Claims Weather Events Are Sign Of Climate Change “Looney Bin”

At his most recent Weekend Summary at Weatherbell Analytics, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi looks at recent North American weather events, for example the warm poles (where very few weather stations exist) and the warm North American February. Arctic sea ice recovers Soon after global warming alarmists hollered that the Arctic was in collapse, the conditions there have […]
