University of Victoria: Eurasian Cold Wave Not Influenced By Arctic Sea Ice Melt By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) The climate discussion between the two different fronts had ground to a halt for a long time. Nobody wanted to or could talk to the other. Luckily that has improved […]

Warnings Of A "December To Remember" As No. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches 2nd Highest Level!

Warnings Of A “December To Remember” As No. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches 2nd Highest Level!

What follows is an interesting chart presented by Joe Bastardi’s Daily Update at Weatherbell Analytics. There’s been a lot of talk about the current warm weather conditions up in the high Arctic, but little talk about the impressive snow cover over the northern hemisphere and the extreme and vast cold over Russia and Siberia. What happened […]

NOAA Forced To Totally Overhaul Winter Forecast For Northern Europe, Russia, As Cold Spreads

NOAA Forced To Totally Overhaul Winter Forecast For Northern Europe, Russia, As Cold Spreads

Models and experts of every type have had plenty of setbacks making forecasts for chaotic systems. Recent examples include the election results and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman’s prediction that the US market would dive in response to the election of Trump (it in fact went on and set a new all-time record high). If anything has lost […]

Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Trend Has In Fact Been Upward Over Past Quarter Century!

Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Trend Has In Fact Been Upward Over Past Quarter Century!

USA’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provides data here on snow cover. Because global warming is supposed to be leading to less snow, one would think that snow cover in terms of area would be trending downwards over the past 50 or so years. However, the data tell us a very different story. Surprisingly […]

Early Europe Winter? ...And Greenland Sees "Record" 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Early Europe Winter? …And Greenland Sees “Record” 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Yesterday veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi brought to our attention an article by the Washington Post here, where it reports forecasters are warning that the coming winter “could get nasty” for the Washington D.C. area. Although the National Weather Service predicts “equal chances of a cold or mild winter”, private meteorologists warn the winter could get […]

Extraordinary September Arctic Sea Ice Growth...Rate Of Increase As Strong As Typical November!

Extraordinary September Arctic Sea Ice Growth…Rate Of Increase As Strong As Typical November!

Contrary to what is often claimed, Arctic sea ice is not in a death spiral, and has been stable for the past 10 years. Yesterday Japanese skeptic blogger Kirye informed at Twitter that the sea ice volume and area rates of growth for September and early October this year are astonishingly rapid and at a […]

Scientists: The Arctic Was Sea-Ice-Free, 19°C Warmer 4 Million Years Ago -- And Yet Polar Bears Somehow Survived

Scientists: The Arctic Was Sea-Ice-Free, 19°C Warmer 4 Million Years Ago — And Yet Polar Bears Somehow Survived

“Whether polar bears are 350,000 years old or 6 million years old, unless we take action to curb greenhouse gas emissions, they face a future where the climate will continue to warm. And this warming will be unlike anything polar bears have survived before.”  —  Polar Bears International Image: NoTricksZone During the Pliocene, or from […]

Northwest Passage freezes over! At approx. 4.1 million square kilometres extent, it appears that the summertime Arctic sea ice melt has ended early, on 7 September 2016. Here the […]

Tipping Points Postponed Again: Arctic Sea Ice Refuses To Melt ...No Real Shrinking In 10 Years!

Tipping Points Postponed Again: Arctic Sea Ice Refuses To Melt …No Real Shrinking In 10 Years!

Japanese climate blogger Kirye caught my eye here at Twitter when posting a comparator chart of Arctic sea ice extent (and thickness) for 2007, 2015 and this year (2016) for September 4. In a nutshell, what is all the alarm about? She comments that “Arctic ice is not doomed in the real world.” Clearly Arctic […]

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

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 […]

German Scientists Slam Guardian’s Hyping Of A “Fringe Scientific Position” On Arctic Sea Ice

Arctic sea ice more stable than thought: once agin likely no new record melt By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated by P Gosselin) On June 14, 2016, Swiss flagship daily Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) reported on an imminent record ice melt in the Arctic: Record ice melt in the Arctic: […]

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, […]

Another Doomsday Climate Prediction Gets Postponed …Effect On Gulf Stream “Smaller Than Expected”

Germany’s Geomar Research Center recently published a press release (see below) concerning the latest on the Gulf Stream. Hat-tip: DkS. Some leading scientists have claimed that melting Greenland glaciers due to “man-made global warming” will lead to a disruption of the Gulf Stream and cause the North Atlantic region’s climate to change dramatically. However, 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 […]

Masato Mori’s Harsh Winter/Shrinking Arctic Sea Ice Hypothesis Flops, Brand New Study Shows!

Some 15 years ago we were told that snow and ice in the wintertime would be things of the past. Then Europe and North America experienced a series of harsh winters and climate scientists, turning on a dime, suddenly declared them the result of global warming. Now that claim too is turning out to be […]

1959 Paper Shows Most Warming Before 1945 ...Arctic Warmed 7.7°C, Sea Level Rose 8 mm/yr

1959 Paper Shows Most Warming Before 1945 …Arctic Warmed 7.7°C, Sea Level Rose 8 mm/yr

The following clearly shows a complete lack of correlation between CO2 and temperature. Most of the 20th century warming occurred before 1945, and clearly was linked to natural factors at time the planet was emerging from the Little Ice Age. ==================================== Explosive (Non-Anthropogenic) Warming in the Early 20th Century By Kenneth Richard As Figure 1 […]
