Vencoreweather Meteorology: Global Sea Ice Has “Rebounded In Recent Weeks To Near Normal Levels”! La Nina Storming Back

Meteorologist Paul Dorian at Vencoreweather.com here has a post on the latest concerning El Nino and global sea ice. Not long ago the warmists and alarmists were jumping and hollering about the drop in Arctic sea ice, accompanied by talk (hope) of an ice-free Arctic. Arctic sea ice rebounds Looks like all the talk was […]

Ice Breaker Which Helped Rescue Turney’s “Ship Of Fools” Gets Jammed In Meters-Thick Summertime Antarctic Sea Ice!

UPDATE: Reader ES provides a link shedding more light into the story. Apparently the Aurora Australis broke mooring during a blizzard and ran aground (on ice?) and DID NOT GET TRAPPED IN ICE. http://www.antarctica.gov.au/news/2016/aurora-australis-successfully-refloated =================================== Schneefan at German skeptic site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de here writes about how yet another ice-breaker has gotten stuck in summertime Antarctic sea ice.

Arctic Sea Ice Trend May Have Turned The Corner As Ice Volume Picks Up Over Past 5 Years

As Arctic sea ice approaches its annual maximum level for the year, now is a good time to look at how it stands – especially in what some are claiming to be the hottest year on record. The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) here shows currently Arctic sea ice is at its highest level in years for […]

Data Surprise! Global Temperature Continues Stall, Polar Ice And Snow Cover Continue Surprising Growth

Thanks to German site wobleibtdieerderwärmung for providing what follows. The slightly negative linear trend in global temperature measured by RSS satellite (TLT) continues despite the El-Nino-driven warm 2015. Source: www.woodfortrees.org trend This flat trend has held since the end of 1997 and is closing in on two decades – catching a number of scientists by surprise. The […]

Sea Level Rise Postponed … 5 Very Recent Papers Show Antarctic Ice Much More Stable Than Originally Believed!

Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning recently sent a letter to daily Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten (PNN), which earlier had reported on dramatic “ice loss” in Antarctica and resulting dangerous sea level rise – the typical bogus climate alarm story we’ve become accustomed to hearing from the Truth Media. Sadly, the PNN presented only the doom and gloom perspective […]

Large Number Of Climate Scientists, Officials Baffled Arctic Sea Ice Still Hasn’t Disappeared, But Has Grown Instead

Why hasn’t the Arctic  still not disappeared despite all the announcements that it would? By Dr. Dietrich E. Koelle [Translated, edited by P Gosselin] Announcements that the Arctic sea ice would soon disappear have been among the most favorite of claims made by publicity-seeking climatologists and leading American politicians. According to the following, there isn’t supposed […]

Resurging Sea Ice: Antarctica Above Average Over Past 20 Years - Arctic Gaining Over Past 5 Years!

Resurging Sea Ice: Antarctica Above Average Over Past 20 Years – Arctic Gaining Over Past 5 Years!

Examining the hard data on sea ice extent at the Earth’s poles, it would be very tough to argue that the globe is warming. Melting has stopped in the Arctic In the Arctic sea ice extent has indeed on average dropped a million square kilometers. But a look at the plotted sea ice anomaly data we […]

Scientists Surprised: Global Sea Ice Unexpectedly Stable Over Past 35 Years, Arctic Stable Last 10 Years!

Scientists Surprised: Global Sea Ice Unexpectedly Stable Over Past 35 Years, Arctic Stable Last 10 Years!

It’s a good time to take a look at how global sea ice is doing at both poles. We were told over and over that the poles are the canary in the coal mine for global warming. If the sea ice melt trend accelerated, we were warned, then the planet was warming rapidly and societies […]

A Hell Week For Global Warming Alarmists: Crumbling Consensus, Inconvenient Data And Policy Rejection

It hasn’t been a good week for the global warming alarmists. Three events have rocked the movement and caused alarmists to go into a state of alarm. Putin calls global warming “a fraud” The first event Russian President Vladimir Putin, who used to play along with the issue, has come out and called global warming science […]

German Climate Experts Conference: Antarctica Temperatures Show No Warming Trend In 20th Century!

Climate models unable to reproduce real temperature development By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated/edited by P Gosselin] From September 21 – 24, 2015, the 10th Deutsche Klimatagung (German Climate Conference) took place in Hamburg. Along with a number of […]

"We Are Now Starting To See A Dramatic Cooling In The Arctic", Says Former NOAA Meteorologist ..."Extremely Cold" From 2025 To 2050!

“We Are Now Starting To See A Dramatic Cooling In The Arctic”, Says Former NOAA Meteorologist …”Extremely Cold” From 2025 To 2050!

Trillions are being spent on the completely wrong scenario, an independent veteran meteorologist implies. Instead of warming, we need to worry about the coming 125-year cool period, which has already begun. A former National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist has spoken out in a just released 49-minute video that looks at climate change and what lies […]

July Analysis: Gore Ice-Free Arctic Fantasies Have Seen Their Waterloo… “Polar Ice Caps Are In Fact Growing”

A few days ago German website wobleibtdieglobaleerderwärmung (where’s the global warming – hereinafter WBDGE) also looked at polar sea ice. The site writes that despite all the global warming and ice-melt fantasies circulating through the circles of climate alarmism, “Arctic sea ice extent in July 2015 increased strongly compared to a year earlier.” Linear trend […]

Potsdam Institute For Climate Impact Research (PIK) Study Finds Natural Factors Are “Underestimated”!

I got a big kick out of the press release that follows below, published by the hopelessly alarmist PIK. Three times it uses the word “however” to tell readers that things really aren’t like what they just wrote in the sentence before.  The emphasis in the press release is my own. ======================================= University of Giessen: Natural […]
