Danish Meteorological Institute Data Show GREENLAND ICE MASS BALANCE HAS GROWN IMPRESSIVELY Since 2014

German climate science skeptic site wobleibtdieerderwaermung (wherestheglobalwarming) recently posted on the Arctic and Greenland, mentioning that the Arctic winter has already started there as temperatures above 80° north latitude dip below zero. Chart above shows that a major swath of the Arctic, North Atlantic and North America has seen cold temperatures this year. But there […]

"We Are Now Starting To See A Dramatic Cooling In The Arctic", Says Former NOAA Meteorologist ..."Extremely Cold" From 2025 To 2050!

“We Are Now Starting To See A Dramatic Cooling In The Arctic”, Says Former NOAA Meteorologist …”Extremely Cold” From 2025 To 2050!

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 […]

German Scientists: Former IPCC Author Peter Wadhams Showing Pattern Of Irrationaliy …”Extremely Far-Fringe Corner”

Professor Fritz Vahrenholt and Dr. Sebastian Lüning recently took a look at the odd behavior of former IPCC author Peter Wadhams, who now suspects the oil industy of being behind the accidental deaths of three climate colleagues. Three British scientists have lost their lives since 2013 – all three had been involved in Arctic research. One […]

July Analysis: Gore Ice-Free Arctic Fantasies Have Seen Their Waterloo… “Polar Ice Caps Are In Fact Growing”

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!

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 […]

Are Glacier Earthquakes Shaking Greenland? Scientists, WaPo Seeing Only What They Want To See

Are Glacier Earthquakes Shaking Greenland? Scientists, WaPo Seeing Only What They Want To See

By Ed Caryl The Washington Post just published an alarmist article titled: Giant earthquakes are shaking Greenland — and scientists just figured out the disturbing reason why. The article claimed that earthquakes were caused by icebergs calving off the Helheim Glacier, and that these were increasing because of increased outflow from this glacier. Here is […]

Greenland Temperatures Weaken Theory CO2 Drives Climate

Greenland Temperatures Weaken Theory CO2 Drives Climate

By Ed Caryl In my last article, we discussed the Greenland ice core temperature record. In this article we will discuss the Greenland thermometer record. All the long record thermometer readings are from villages and stations on the coast. Some of these records go back to the early 1800’s, though GISTemp only posts records going […]

German Analysis: Near Record Level Antarctic Sea Ice Shows Nothing Climatically Unusual At South Pole!

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 […]

Analysis Shows Current Warming Is NOT Unprecedented ...It Is Not Even "Unusual"!

Analysis Shows Current Warming Is NOT Unprecedented …It Is Not Even “Unusual”!

UPDATE: New paper: http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.de/2015/06/new-paper-shows-n-greenland-was-warmer.html ===================================== By Ed Caryl The climate calamity crowd claims that the warming we experienced in the Twentieth Century is unprecedented… it has never happened before in human history. Because we didn’t have thermometers until about 300 years ago, and even then records exist from just a few locations, it is difficult […]

Global Warming Scientists Perish In The Arctic ...A Lethal Publicity Stunt In Servitude Of Sensationalist Science?

Global Warming Scientists Perish In The Arctic …A Lethal Publicity Stunt In Servitude Of Sensationalist Science?

On the folly scale, the following story is right up there with the Antarctic Ship of Fools. Unfortunately this one ended in a terrible tragedy. Global warming researchers Marc Cornelissen and Philip de Roo believed to have perished in the Arctic. Photo Twitter. The online Spiegel here reports that two Dutch researchers, Marc Cornelissen, 46, and Philip […]

No Sign Of Warming: Global Sea Ice Well Below Normal Only 4 Of Last 36 Years...Normal Over Last 2.5 Years!

No Sign Of Warming: Global Sea Ice Well Below Normal Only 4 Of Last 36 Years…Normal Over Last 2.5 Years!

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 […]

Data Plainly Show No Correlation Between Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations And Global Sea Ice!

Data Plainly Show No Correlation Between Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations And Global Sea Ice!

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 […]

Sustainable Postponements...Germany's Alfred Wegener Institute Pushes "Ice-Free Arctic" Back To 2050!

Sustainable Postponements…Germany’s Alfred Wegener Institute Pushes “Ice-Free Arctic” Back To 2050!

In 2009 Al Gore predicted an ice-free Arctic by 2014. It never materialized – not even close. Not to be outdone, John Kerry upped the ante and boldly proclaimed an ice-free Arctic by 2013. That too was utter nonsense. In 2010 oceanography researcher Wieslaw Maslowski claimed: “Near ice-free summer Arctic might become a reality much […]

Clear And Gathering Evidence Of Cooling: Three-Year Mean Antarctic Sea Ice Highest On Satellite Record!

Clear And Gathering Evidence Of Cooling: Three-Year Mean Antarctic Sea Ice Highest On Satellite Record!

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 […]

Georgia Tech Climatologist Curry: “No Sign Of Slowdown” In AMOC…Sees Atlantic “Arctic Sea Ice Recovery”, Hints Of Greenland Cooling

Michael Mann’s and Stefan Rahmstorf’s recent AMOC paper has been promptly and widely discredited since it came out, see here WUWT, WUWT, and NTZ. The sharp criticism has since picked up. Veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi for example blasted the paper in a comment at WUWT, calling the claims “nonsense” and reminded that renowned climatology expert […]

European Institute For Climate And Energy: Ocean Cycles Are Main Driver, No Relationship Between Arctic Sea Ice And European Winters!

Two days ago I wrote about the first part of an analysis (on Germany winter temperatures) by Kowatsch and Kämpfe appearing here at EIKE. Winter temperatures in Germany have been falling for a quarter of a century now. Much to my satisfaction, that post has been widely shared among social media. Today I’m writing about […]

German Experts: New Paper By Gleisner Shows 2013 Cowtan And Way Arctic Data Hole Paper Was A Lemon

German experts Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt tell at their Die kalte Sonne site us why the 2013 Cowtan and Way paper has proven to be a flop. ======================================== Failed spectacularly: Arctic data hole theory for the warming pause collapses By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) For quite some time […]

Joe Bastardi Schools Dr. Michael Mann On How To Read A Weather Chart ... Heavy Snow "Is Because It's Cold"

Joe Bastardi Schools Dr. Michael Mann On How To Read A Weather Chart … Heavy Snow “Is Because It’s Cold”

The Northeast USA is being socked by frightful cold and massive snow. The brutal New England winters are back and now we are witnessing last ditch efforts by disgraced climate scientists to blame the brutally cold winters on a warming planet (which in reality has not warmed in 18 years). At his latest Saturday Summary […]

Climatologists’ Projections Defied…25-Year Trend For German Winters Shows Cooling! …”Snow Has Not Disappeared”

In 2014, Germany and parts of Europe will be seeing their warmest year ever since temperature recording began in earnest late in the 19th century. The media and alarmists are giddy about this, even though most of it is due to a global weather pattern that worked to deliver an almost steady stream of warm […]

Ocean And Solar Cycles Show Arctic Sea Ice Will EXPAND Over The Next 3 Decades!

Due to time constraints, what follows is a shortened version of the original German blog article. ================================= Danish Chinese scientists discover important relationship: Arctic sea ice development of the last 5000 years is controlled by solar activity By Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Satellites began systematically measuring sea ice about 35 […]
