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'

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 […]

Warming Not Global… Joe Bastardi: “Most Of The Global Warming Is Happening At The Arctic And Antarctic.”

At his Satuurday Summary, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi looks at August global temperature (starting at about the 3:30 mark) and serves up a few intersting observations. “Global” warming confined to the poles, in wintertime First he reminds us that the “global” warming is pretty much confined to the poles, and that during the winter time. Warming […]

Global Warming-Pushing Media, Governments Refuted…Antarctic Peninsula Is In Fact Cooling, Study Finds

British Antarctic Survey: Antarctic Peninsula has been cooling since 1998 By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P. Gosselin) Climate skeptics have been accused over and over again of fabricating the climate warming hiatus of the past 15 years. A poor argument because the hiatus has been established as an […]

University of Deleware Penguin Panic Paper Exposed As Flawed… Used “Tricks”

Antarctic climate models fail to handle natural variability: Adélie penguins continue to appear By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P. Gosselin) On June 29, 2016 the University of Delaware (UD) unleashed a climate penguin panic with its press release: Penguins and climate change: UD scientists report projected response of […]

Amazing Climate UNCHANGE ...Global Sea Ice Over Past 38 Years Remains Virtually Level!

Amazing Climate UNCHANGE …Global Sea Ice Over Past 38 Years Remains Virtually Level!

Global sea ice stable for 38 years By Kenneth Richard Everyone knows that climate change is normal occurs naturally, at times rapidly, and that there is really nothing we can do about it. Amazingly, with some climate aspects, there has not been any change in about 40 years. According to NSIDC sea ice trend data, […]

Antarctica Expert Dr. Eric Steig: “Evidence Antarctic Glacier Retreat Due To AGW “Is Weak”!

More “consensus” science: Antarctica not influenced by AGW By Kenneth Richard In recent years, the headlines of common news sources have austerely warned that West Antarctica is melting rapidly: “‘Nothing can stop retreat’ of West Antarctic glaciers” — BBC “The melting of Antarctica was already really bad. It just got worse.”   — Washington Post “West […]

Climate Science Consensus In Turmoil. New Studies Soundly Refute Antarctic Ice Melt Projections!

Climate Science Consensus In Turmoil. New Studies Soundly Refute Antarctic Ice Melt Projections!

Scientists: Warming causes Antarctic ice sheet growth, and lower sea levels By Kenneth Richard While many scientists are projecting rapid sea level rise as a result of a warmer Antarctica and consequent ice sheet melting, other scientists are projecting that the surface of the Antarctic ice sheet will gain in mass because a warmer Antarctica means snow and ice accumulation will outpace the […]

Top Scientists: CO2-Induced Warming Is "Weak" To Non-Existent For Greenland, Antarctica!

Top Scientists: CO2-Induced Warming Is “Weak” To Non-Existent For Greenland, Antarctica!

By Kenneth Richard We routinely read about “highest ever” Arctic ice sheet and sea ice melt rates in the Arctic. And about rapid, “faster-than-expected” melting of ice shelves in West Antarctica.  And then, of course, we’re told that sea levels are rising at an accelerating rate — a catastrophically accelerating rate — due to the […]

Sea Level Hysteria: German Climate Experts Call Claim Antarctica Could Melt Faster “Crazy Climate Alarmism”!
