-60°F In Russia…So Cold That The Brake System Of Tupolev Tu-134 Jet Allegedly “Froze”!

-60°F In Russia…So Cold That The Brake System Of Tupolev Tu-134 Jet Allegedly “Froze”!

A number of media outlets are reporting on how a Russian Tupolev jet “froze” at Igarka Airport in Siberia, some 3000 kilometers east of Moscow, 160 kilometers above the Arctic circle. The Russian RT News Agency here reports that the plane “froze to the ground“. Yet another report says that it was actually the plane’s brake system […]

35 Degrees Below Zero And Colder Spreads, Grips 2 Million Square Kilometers Swath Of Central Siberia

35 Degrees Below Zero And Colder Spreads, Grips 2 Million Square Kilometers Swath Of Central Siberia

Not only is North America bracing for a possible near record-setting cold blast from the Arctic, but also Siberia has been reporting massive snow cover and widespread cold. It’s only the first half of November and the dead of winter is still two months away! The CO2 blanket having no effect in Siberia. Image source: […]

Austrian Daily Reports: “Huge Ice Growth Surprises Climate Scientists” … “Like One Not Seen In Decades”!

Austrian Daily Reports: “Huge Ice Growth Surprises Climate Scientists” … “Like One Not Seen In Decades”!

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”!

Climate Change Dying As An Issue In German Media…Empty Seats Pack Hamburg “9th Extreme Weather Congress”!

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 […]

Science With “97% Consensus” and “99% Certainty” Sees 0% Of Its Scientists Willing To Bet On It!

About 10 days ago a press release by the Alfred Wegener Institute gave readers the impression that the Arctic sea ice would keep on melting. In response I sent e-mails to the two scientists cited in it, Marcel Nicolaus and Lars Kaleschke, and asked if they would advise a bet on it. I even posted […]

4 Of The Arctic’s (80°N+) Coldest Summers Occurred In The Last 6 Years…Global Sea Ice Now Normal 2 Years!

4 Of The Arctic’s (80°N+) Coldest Summers Occurred In The Last 6 Years…Global Sea Ice Now Normal 2 Years!

The North Pole region north of 80°N, monitored by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) since 1958, has in 2014 seen yet another colder-than-normal summer, placing it in the Top 4 coldest since the DMI started monitoring in 1958. The chart below shows the four coldest summers: 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014. Temperature vs calendar day for […]

Russian National Television Film Warns Of Cooling…Senior Woods Hole Scientist Calls Arctic Model Runs “Far From Ideal”!

Russian National Television Film Warns Of Cooling…Senior Woods Hole Scientist Calls Arctic Model Runs “Far From Ideal”!

In today’s post you will find a Russian National Television film below, viewed only 70 times so far at Youtube, where Russian scientists express doubt on the IPCC’s version of the CO2 story, and warn of a coming cold period. It is the kind of film alarmists do not want the public to see.  It […]

Max Planck Institute Arctic Sea Ice Expert: “I Wouldn’t Put Money On Further Decrease Of Ice Cover”!

Max Planck Institute Arctic Sea Ice Expert: “I Wouldn’t Put Money On Further Decrease Of Ice Cover”!

About 10 days ago Germany’s Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) put out a press release on global sea ice. In it AWI scientist Marcel Nicolaus and Lars Kaleschke of the Hamburg Cluster of Excellence for Climate Research (CliSAP) confirmed the “long-term downward trend in the Arctic.” Somewhat annoyed by that conclusion, I sent the 2 scientists an […]

NOAA Devolving To An Orwellian Political Farce…Veteran Meteorologist: “Fox Is Guarding The Henhouse”

NOAA Devolving To An Orwellian Political Farce…Veteran Meteorologist: “Fox Is Guarding The Henhouse”

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 […]

Just How Sure Are The Sea Ice “Experts” About The Arctic Melt Continuing? Looks Very Close To Zero…

Just How Sure Are The Sea Ice “Experts” About The Arctic Melt Continuing? Looks Very Close To Zero…

Recently the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany released a press clipping about polar sea ice, obstinately refusing to acknowledge that there is a trend change happening in the Arctic. It wrote: The area of sea ice in the Arctic fell to a summer minimum of around 5.0 million square kilometres this year, which […]

Mainstream Journalism Remains Catatonic As Antarctica Sees Year-Long Series Of Record High Sea Ice Extents

Mainstream Journalism Remains Catatonic As Antarctica Sees Year-Long Series Of Record High Sea Ice Extents

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 […]

German Professor: 2014 Arctic Sea Ice Melt Falls Below Long-Term Mean…North Atlantic Heat Content Plummets!

What follows is the Arctic part of Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt’s and Frank Bosse’s recently posted article: The sun August 2014, the internal variability of the climate and the latest on Arctic ice. Time permitting, I will do the translation of the solar part a little later. ================================ The Latest News On Arctic Ice By Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt […]

Switzerland’s August 1.5°C Colder Than Normal…Arctic Sea Ice Explosion Despite Claims “Arctic Is Warming”

Switzerland’s August 1.5°C Colder Than Normal…Arctic Sea Ice Explosion Despite Claims “Arctic Is Warming”

The polar-vortex-inducing “warming Arctic” seems to be doing strange things to the Arctic itself – defying the very laws of physics: The “warmth” there is causing the sea ice extent to explode. Compare 2012 versus 2014: Arctic images for September 3. Source: www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/htm. Depending on which dataset you use, the Arctic sea ice extent this […]

2014: The Year Arctic Meltdown Stories Completely Vanished From Our Media!

2014: The Year Arctic Meltdown Stories Completely Vanished From Our Media!

Two years ago at about this time of year the media were overflowing at the brim with apocalyptic stories of high-speed Arctic meltdown. Everywhere the media used words like “dramatic”, catastrophic”, “accelerated”, “tipping point” and so on. Except for the story of an overall long-term trend claimed by one paper from the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) […]

NOAA Data Show Southern Oceans Getting Colder…Contributing To Rapid South Polar Sea Ice Expansion

NOAA Data Show Southern Oceans Getting Colder…Contributing To Rapid South Polar Sea Ice Expansion

North Pole and South Pole Ice By Ed Caryl Why do the north and south polar regions seem to be opposites? Why is ice increasing around Antarctica, and decreasing in the Arctic Ocean? The answer lies in the other ways that these two regions are opposites. At the South Pole lies a continent. The ice […]
