“Urban Heat Island” Effect Appears To Be Far More Pronounced In Polar Regions Than You Might Think!

“Urban Heat Island” Effect Appears To Be Far More Pronounced In Polar Regions Than You Might Think!

+++++ Polar Islands Of Heat By Ed Caryl I would like to thank “John”, a commenter on my article on why the Antarctic sea ice is expanding, for inspiring this article. Other writers and researchers have noticed that temperature measurements in the polar regions are influenced by nearby heat sources, even the body heat of […]

So What’s The Real Reason South Polar Sea Ice Is Expanding? It’s The Cooling, Stupid!

So What’s The Real Reason South Polar Sea Ice Is Expanding? It’s The Cooling, Stupid!

By Ed Caryl During the last three years, since 2011, the ice around Antarctica has been growing, in most seasons, more than during any similar periods of the satellite era where we have that data. At first, the climate catastrophists ignored this phenomenon. When that became embarrassingly inconvenient, they began to blame it on instrument […]

GISS Data Contradict Mark Serreze’s Claim

GISS Data Contradict Mark Serreze’s Claim

Antarctic Sea Ice is Growing – Because of Global Warming? By Ed Caryl Short answer: No. Antarctic sea ice has been growing, especially in the last three years. This has been largely ignored by the AGW crowd because it opposes their narrative. They needed badly to come up with an excuse. A recent article in […]

WeatherBell “Saturday Summary” Debunks 6 Climate Alarmism Falsehoods In Less Than 10 Minutes!

WeatherBell “Saturday Summary” Debunks 6 Climate Alarmism Falsehoods In Less Than 10 Minutes!

If you don’t have the truth, then some folks rely on lies and hope others will be fooled and stay so. Such is the case with global warming climate science. Almost every measure of global warming has stopped cooperating with the alarmists over the last 10 years. Now they have to make things up. At Weatherbell […]

EPICA Ice Core Analysis: Nowhere Do We See Temperature Lagging CO2

EPICA Ice Core Analysis: Nowhere Do We See Temperature Lagging CO2

Ice Core CO2 and Temperature The “Delay” By Ed Caryl There has been some interest in the lag in ice cores between temperature as measured from oxygen isotope differences, and the CO2 content as measured directly in gas bubbles. The literature seems to agree that the lag is something between one millennium and 800 years. […]

Models Wrong Again…Sea Ice Break-Up Caused In Large Part By Storm-Generated Oceanic Wave And Wind Dynamics!

Models Wrong Again…Sea Ice Break-Up Caused In Large Part By Storm-Generated Oceanic Wave And Wind Dynamics!

Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski has a fascinating piece on what likely causes most of the sea ice to break up. The Spiegel introduction: Sea ice is disappearing in the Arctic, around the Antarctic it is growing – today’s conventional climate models are unable to explain this contradiction. One effect has just been measured by […]

Warming? Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “Possibility We’re Going To Break All-Time Global Sea Ice Records”!

Warming? Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “Possibility We’re Going To Break All-Time Global Sea Ice Records”!

Here Joe is talking about record highs! Weatherbell Analytics meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a person studying and observing the weather for some 40 years, says in his latest Saturday Summary that global sea ice this year has a pretty good chance of setting a new record high since satellite measurements began. Image cropped from Weatherbell Analytics […]

Spiegel: Experts Say Antarctic Wilkes Basin “Uncorking” Scenario by PIK Sensationalist Scientists Is Unlikely

As Antarctica sets new maximum sea ice records, sensationalist scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) remain relentless in conjuring up cataclysmic meltdown scenarios for the frozen continent. This is the case with a new paper by Levermann and Mengel appearing at Nature Climate Change. Yet, when we read a little further, we […]

Spiegel On Antaractic Sea Ice: “Never Before Has There Been So Much Ice At This Time Of Year Since Measurements Began”!

Spiegel On Antaractic Sea Ice: “Never Before Has There Been So Much Ice At This Time Of Year Since Measurements Began”!

Science journalist Axel Bojanowski, a trained geologist, at Spiegel writes how scientists think they may have solved the riddle of growing Antarctic sea ice in a warming world. Mysteries surround Antarctica…scientists realizing oceans play huge role on climate. Photo: NASA-JPL. No question the planet has warmed some since 1900 as it crawls out of a little ice […]

Global Warming Alarmist Bill Nye Confuses Antarctic Continent With The Arctic…Doesn’t Know North From South!

Global Warming Alarmist Bill Nye Confuses Antarctic Continent With The Arctic…Doesn’t Know North From South!

Bill Nye once again makes a fool of himself, this time on NBC’s Meet The Press before a national audience. At the 8:26 mark: “Would you say the Antarctic has less ice than it used to?” From NBC’s Meet The Press. Er, Bill, that graphic you’re holding up is one of the Arctic, and not […]

Major German Daily ‘Die Welt’ Wildly Exaggerates Western Antarctic Ice Shelf Melt By 1100 Times!

Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt write here how German online flagship daily Die Welt here published an alarming article about Antarctic sea ice melt some two weeks ago. Die Welt wrote: Giant Antarctic glacier melting unstoppably The Pine Island Glacier in the Antarctic is melting irreversibly according to a study. Scientists expect that sea level will rise […]

Recovery! In 2013 Global Sea Ice Extent Was Above Average For First Time In 9 Years – Now Similar To 1986!

Recovery! In 2013 Global Sea Ice Extent Was Above Average For First Time In 9 Years – Now Similar To 1986!

Global sea ice is supposed to be melting away. We are often led to believe that it is at or near record lows. It’s global warming after all, and everyone knows that warmth melts ice. But if ice is growing, maybe it’s a sign that things are cooling down. From the chart that follows we do […]

Tucson Citizen’s DuHamel On Turney’s Botched Expedition: “Failure Put People In Danger For A Publicity Stunt”!

At his Wry Heat blog, the Tucson Citizen’s Jonathan Duhamel has a good commentary titled: A ship of fools. No mystery here over what he’s writing about. Duhamel writes: The good professor Turney, wanted to show how global warming was affecting the planet.  He apparently had visions of clear sailing, but he picked a year in […]

Expedition Fiasco Leader Professor Chris Turney Fibs Yet Again: Now Claims Akademik Shokalskiy Is An “Icebreaker”!

Journal Nature can no longer be bothered to check facts anymore. Bad enough that they rarely subject global warming climate papers to real, rigorous peer-review, and so now even the most obvious rubbish gets by. In a Nature comment, Professor Turney seems to be responding in part to harsh articles published by Cambridge University News and […]

Leading Polar Expert Claims “Lives Needlessly Risked” By Expedition Planners”…Echos NTZ

Today the online Daily Mail echos what NTZ wrote 5 days ago, and also brings in an expert to confirm exactly what I was suspecting: Prof Chris Turney may have been reckless in his planning for a major expedition. Although combining tourism and science on a cruise ship may seem like a creative idea on […]
