Examining the hard data on sea ice extent at the Earth’s poles, it would be very tough to argue that the globe is warming. Melting has stopped in the Arctic In the Arctic sea ice extent has indeed on average dropped a million square kilometers. But a look at the plotted sea ice anomaly data we […]
Scientists Surprised: Global Sea Ice Unexpectedly Stable Over Past 35 Years, Arctic Stable Last 10 Years!
By P Gosselin on 14. November 2015
It’s a good time to take a look at how global sea ice is doing at both poles. We were told over and over that the poles are the canary in the coal mine for global warming. If the sea ice melt trend accelerated, we were warned, then the planet was warming rapidly and societies […]
A Hell Week For Global Warming Alarmists: Crumbling Consensus, Inconvenient Data And Policy Rejection
By P Gosselin on 5. November 2015
It hasn’t been a good week for the global warming alarmists. Three events have rocked the movement and caused alarmists to go into a state of alarm. Putin calls global warming “a fraud” The first event Russian President Vladimir Putin, who used to play along with the issue, has come out and called global warming science […]

Helmholtz Center in Germany: Antarctic temperatures show no warming trend in 20th century. Climate models unable to reproduce real temperature development By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated/edited by P Gosselin] From September 21 – 24, 2015, the 10th Deutsche Klimatagung (German Climate Conference) took place in Hamburg. Along with a number of […]
“We Are Now Starting To See A Dramatic Cooling In The Arctic”, Says Former NOAA Meteorologist …”Extremely Cold” From 2025 To 2050!
By P Gosselin on 12. August 2015
Trillions are being spent on the completely wrong scenario, an independent veteran meteorologist implies. Instead of warming, we need to worry about the coming 125-year cool period, which has already begun. A former National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologist has spoken out in a just released 49-minute video that looks at climate change and what lies […]
July Analysis: Gore Ice-Free Arctic Fantasies Have Seen Their Waterloo… “Polar Ice Caps Are In Fact Growing”
By P Gosselin on 5. August 2015
A few days ago German website wobleibtdieglobaleerderwärmung (where’s the global warming – hereinafter WBDGE) also looked at polar sea ice. The site writes that despite all the global warming and ice-melt fantasies circulating through the circles of climate alarmism, “Arctic sea ice extent in July 2015 increased strongly compared to a year earlier.” Linear trend […]
July Data Rolls In…Consensus Of Datasets Agree: Warming Has Stopped… Global Temperature Firmly Stuck!
By P Gosselin on 4. August 2015
German website wobleibtdieglobaleerderwärmung (where’s the global warming – WBDGE) does an excellent job at analyzing and observing climate data and trends. German readers are recommended to bookmark this site. In its latest post the site looks at the July results and the overall global temperature and sea ice trend. It finds that multiple datasets clearly […]

[Sticky post…new articles follow after this one.] ===================================== By Ed Caryl This is a follow-up to the article AWI’s Sloppy Antarctic Peninsula Science…Overlooked GISS Temperature Data, Snowfall Amounts. The reality is that the situation at the South Pole is worrisome. Ocean around Antarctica markedly colder since 2006… It is difficult to believe that global warming/climate […]

Record ice melt at the Antarctic Peninsula? Scientists overlooked fluctuations in snowfall By Dr. Sebastian Lüning / Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Condensed, summarized by P Gosselin) German journalists, e.g. the Stuttgarter Zeitung’s Roland Knauer, recently reported that ice at the Antarctic peninsula was “melting more rapidly than first thought“, and that “climate change was making its way further […]
German Analysis: Near Record Level Antarctic Sea Ice Shows Nothing Climatically Unusual At South Pole!
By P Gosselin on 25. June 2015
Yesterday Ed Caryl showed us that the Greenland ice core shows there’s nothing unusual going on with our climate around Greenland. Today geologist Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt tells us the same for the other end of the Earth. ================================= The development of the Antarctic Sea ice before the satellite era in 1979 By […]

No warming in Antarctica. Southern Ocean Cooling Down By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated by P Gosselin] In Antarctica if a single piece of ice breaks off, the media worldwide go into a frenzy: How could it happen? That’s got to be climate change. Yes, global warming is striking Antarctica with full […]
Potsdam Institute For Climate Impact Research (PIK) Study Finds Natural Factors Are “Underestimated”!
By P Gosselin on 8. May 2015
I got a big kick out of the press release that follows below, published by the hopelessly alarmist PIK. Three times it uses the word “however” to tell readers that things really aren’t like what they just wrote in the sentence before. The emphasis in the press release is my own. ======================================= University of Giessen: Natural […]
No Sign Of Warming: Global Sea Ice Well Below Normal Only 4 Of Last 36 Years…Normal Over Last 2.5 Years!
By P Gosselin on 25. April 2015
NoTricksZone is finally back online after having been unavailable for some 32 or so hours. Apparently a WordPress version update “had faultily written the htaccess file“, the host company has just informed me. Don’t ask me what that is supposed to mean. At any rate, the problem seems to be resolved, and we’re well back […]
By P Gosselin on 14. April 2015
The poles, we are told, are supposed to be the tell-tale barometer of global warming. No place is supposed to warm up as quickly as the poles. And because there are practically no thermometers to speak of at both the North and South poles, we need a better way of getting an idea of how […]
Clear And Gathering Evidence Of Cooling: Three-Year Mean Antarctic Sea Ice Highest On Satellite Record!
By P Gosselin on 11. April 2015
Now that it’s spring, it’s as good a time as any to look at polar sea ice. Climate scientists have told us time and again that global warming would first be been at the Earth’s poles. Well, if that is true, then we need to start worrying about cooling. In the Arctic the following chart […]
Austrian Daily Reports: “Huge Ice Growth Surprises Climate Scientists” … “Like One Not Seen In Decades”!
By P Gosselin on 15. October 2014
The Austrian online Kronen Zeitung here has an article about something most German-language media outlets have been too red-faced to report on: The sudden growth in polar sea ice. The Kronen Zeitung opens with: A huge growth in ice at the poles has surprised scientists and is casting questions. Is global warming taking a break? […] […]
Climate Change Dying As An Issue In German Media…Empty Seats Pack Hamburg “9th Extreme Weather Congress”!
By P Gosselin on 11. October 2014
This past week the 9th Extreme Weather Congress took place in Hamburg. Curiously this year there was very little coverage by the German media. Doing a Google search of the event turned up very few stories from the mainstream media. Empty seats pack Day 3 of the Hamburg 9th Extreme Weather Conference, just minutes before […]

In track and field a sprinter setting a new world record in the 100 or 200-meter dash by a few hundredths of a second is already considered a sensation. Now imagine a sprinter breaking the 100 or 200-meter dash record by a whole half second, or a pole-vaulter beating the old record not by an […]
NOAA Devolving To An Orwellian Political Farce…Veteran Meteorologist: “Fox Is Guarding The Henhouse”
By P Gosselin on 21. September 2014
The NOAA recently declared several months of this year as being the hottest on record, standing out in stark contrast to other datasets and observed reality. The NOAA claims seem to be so odd that it has become the target of heavy criticism and ridicule (see here, here, here and here), especially with the backdrop of […]
Mainstream Journalism Remains Catatonic As Antarctica Sees Year-Long Series Of Record High Sea Ice Extents
By P Gosselin on 15. September 2014
Here’s proof that mainstream media journalism is either sloppy and just too lazy to check the data themselves, or is catatonically stuck in their now 18-year long illusion of global warming. Recently a number of leading media outlets trumpeted (loudly) scary claims of “accelerating polar ice melt”. For example last May Germany’s leading online financial daily […]
