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 […]

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 […]

New Paper Debunks Ad Hoc 'Explanation' That Antarctic Sea Ice Has Been Growing Since '80s Due To Human Activity

New Paper Debunks Ad Hoc ‘Explanation’ That Antarctic Sea Ice Has Been Growing Since ’80s Due To Human Activity

“In science and philosophy, ad hoc means the addition of extraneous hypotheses to a theory to save it from being falsified. Ad hoc hypotheses compensate for anomalies not anticipated by the theory in its unmodified form.  Scientists are often skeptical of scientific theories that rely on frequent, unsupported adjustments to sustain them. Ad hoc hypotheses […]

Scientists: ‘Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends’

According to a recently published paper in the journal Science, (Cook et al., 2016, “Ocean forcing of glacier retreat in the western Antarctic Peninsula”), between 1945 and 2009 the mean ocean temperature warmed at depths of 150 to 400 meters for about 3/4ths of the waters surrounding the western Antarctic Peninsula (AP).  The other 1/4th […]
