Missed A Few, IPCC? 368 New 2018 Papers Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarmism

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailIn the first 9½ months of 2018,  368 scientific papers have been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media sources. These […]

Scientists Now Assert Natural Mechanisms Have Driven The Recent Retreat Of The Greenland Ice Sheet

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailScientists are increasingly concluding that changes in low level cloud cover, not CO2, are what govern the surface radiation budget in the polar regions, driving and determining the retreat of the ice sheets.  Image Source: https://www.nature.com/articles/nclimate3363 It is considered “established science” that  “the greenhouse effect of clouds may be larger than that resulting from a hundredfold […]

Claimed Antarctic Ice Loss An Artefact of Statistical Waterboarding…Fraught With Huge Uncertainty…

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailOn June 13 Chris Mooney of the Washington Post wrote how Antarctica’s ice sheet was “melting at a rapidly increasing rate” and “pouring more than 200 billion tons of ice into the ocean annually” — all this according to “a team of 80 scientists”. The doomsday media response was immediate. Mooney of course blamed CO2 for […]

Japanese Meteorological Agency Corrects Antarctic’s Long-Term Sea Ice Growth Trend Upwards

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailThe Global Environment and Marine Department of the Japanese Meteorological Agency recently corrected the long term trend in the annual mean sea ice extent in the Antarctic area: from 0.015 x 106 km2 per year to 0.019 x 106 km2 per year on 11 May 2018. That’s more than a 25% adjustment (15,000 sq. […]
