In 2015, Climate Scientists Wrecked Their Own CO2-Forced 'Polar Amplification' Narrative

In 2015, Climate Scientists Wrecked Their Own CO2-Forced ‘Polar Amplification’ Narrative

CO2 emissions exert no detectable effect on Arctic, Antarctic temperatures. The Arctic region is no warmer in recent decades than it was some 80 years ago, or before CO2 emissions began rising significantly. Graph Source: Mikkelsen et al., 2018 According to the IPCC, the Arctic and Antarctic regions warm more than the rest of the globe […]

Antarctic Temperature Data Contradict Global Warming..."Much Warmer" 105 Years Ago!

Antarctic Temperature Data Contradict Global Warming…”Much Warmer” 105 Years Ago!

Growing sea ice Despite all the alarmist claims of an Antarctic meltdown, it is well known that the trend for sea ice extent at the South Pole has been one of growing ice rather than shrinking ice over the past 4 decades. Naturally many factors influence polar sea ice extent, such as weather patterns, winds, […]

Snow Cover, Ice Volume Growth Show Global Climate Is A Lot More Than Just "Surface Temperature"

Snow Cover, Ice Volume Growth Show Global Climate Is A Lot More Than Just “Surface Temperature”

Growing polar ice mass in a warm world? Although a number of scientists are hollering that 2017 was “among the warmest on record”, we are not seeing any manifestation of this, at least over the northern hemisphere, where ironically snow and ice have shown surprising extents. This year the northern hemisphere winter has been surprisingly […]

Another Bust: PAGES 2k 'Global' Reconstruction Fails To Confirm The 'Hockey Stick'

Another Bust: PAGES 2k ‘Global’ Reconstruction Fails To Confirm The ‘Hockey Stick’

A Deconstruction Of The PAGES 2k ‘Hockey Stick’ Image adapted from PAGES 2k, 2015 Five years ago, the release of the PAGES 2k Consortium (2013) “global” temperature data set was accompanied by a great deal of fanfare. Advocates deemed the conglomeration of proxy temperature data from 7 land regions as scientific confirmation of the notorious hockey-stick-shaped temperature […]

Alarmism Takes A Big Hit…Flood Of New Scientific Findings Show Nothing Unusual Happening Climatically

Two days ago Kenneth presented an impressive flurry of scientific, peer-reviewed charts published over the past 15 months (46 alone in 2018). Much to the surprise of alarmist scientists, global warming is weak at best. Lack of warming a global phenomenon According to Kenneth, these new papers show that “nothing climatically unusual is happening”. For example […]

Arctic Ice Volume Growth Surprises As Solar Activity Approaches Near 200-Year Low

Arctic Ice Volume Growth Surprises As Solar Activity Approaches Near 200-Year Low

Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt look at the sun and oceans in their latest report here at Die kalte Sonne. The sunspot number for February 2018 was 10.6 and thus was some 30% below the meanfor this time into the cycle. At the moment solar activity is close to quiet. Solar cycle no. 24 (red) […]

Céline Le Bohec et al Doom-Filled Penguin Study Is One For The Birds…”Climate Historical Myopia”

UPDATE:Hat-tip: Kenneth Graph showing increasing Adélie penguin numbers during 1982-2015 Che-Castaldo et al., 2017 “We found a marked and steady increase in [Adélie penguin] abundance around the rest of the Antarctic continent, including both Eastern Antarctica and the Ross Sea [during 1982-2015].” Scientists have historically determined that increasing Adélie penguin numbers seem to coincide with […]

Surprise: Antarctic Ice Shelves Growing, Variations Linked To Natural Ocean Cycles, Unrelated To 'Global Warming'

Surprise: Antarctic Ice Shelves Growing, Variations Linked To Natural Ocean Cycles, Unrelated To ‘Global Warming’

A new study shows that the Antarctic Ice Shelf has been thickening – in times of global warming. Logic: Global warming cannot be the driving factor for Antarctic ice shelf mass, let alone CO2. ===================================== West Antarctic Ice Shelf: El Nino takes, La Nina gives By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by […]

A Teetering Consensus: 97 New Papers Amassed In 2018 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

The Science Unsettles Image Source: Robertson and Chilingar, 2017 In just the first 8 weeks of 2018,  97 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 […]

The Epic Failure Of Glacier-Melt, Sea Level Rise Alarmism Continues To Bespoil Climate Science

The Epic Failure Of Glacier-Melt, Sea Level Rise Alarmism Continues To Bespoil Climate Science

 A Disgraceful Chasm Between Real-World Observations & Climate Science Reporting Injecting frightening scenarios into climate science reporting  has seemingly become a requisite for publication. In a new Nature Geoscience editorial, a common scare tactic is utilized by the (unidentified) author so as to grab readers’ attention. Nature Geoscience, 2018 The East Antarctic ice sheet is […]

Ph.D. Climate Scientist: Modern Warming Natural...CO2 Changes Affect Climate 'Weakly At Most'

Ph.D. Climate Scientist: Modern Warming Natural…CO2 Changes Affect Climate ‘Weakly At Most’

New Paper Spurns Anthropogenic CO2 Warming, Unveils Natural Explanation For Climate Change University of California (Santa Cruz) Professor W. Jackson Davis (Ph.D.), President of the Environmental Studies Institute, has published a new paper with colleagues in the journal Climate that thoroughly undermines the conceptualization of a dominant role for anthropogenic CO2 in the global warming since 1850. Davis […]

2 New Papers Find Stable To Growing Penguin Populations In The 'Global Warming' Era

2 New Papers Find Stable To Growing Penguin Populations In The ‘Global Warming’ Era

‘Marked And Steady Increase’ In Modern Penguin Abundance Perhaps because of their unique visual appeal and heavy representation in children’s books and movies (and climate blogs), penguins may subjectively rank second only to polar bears in their polar popularity. The Polar Bear As ‘Global Warming’ Icon Advocates of climate alarm have historically used images of […]

485 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

‘Consensus’ Science Takes A Hit In 2017 During 2017,  485 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 question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media. These 485 new […]

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 […]
