2 New Papers Find Stable To Growing Penguin Populations In The 'Global Warming' Era

2 New Papers Find Stable To Growing Penguin Populations In The ‘Global Warming’ Era

‘Marked And Steady Increase’ In Modern Penguin Abundance Perhaps because of their unique visual appeal and heavy representation in children’s books and movies (and climate blogs), penguins may subjectively rank second only to polar bears in their polar popularity. The Polar Bear As ‘Global Warming’ Icon Advocates of climate alarm have historically used images of […]

485 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

‘Consensus’ Science Takes A Hit In 2017 During 2017,  485 scientific papers have been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media. These 485 new […]

Time Running Out For Global Warming Hoaxsters… 7 New Studies Show Large Parts Of Globe Cooling!

Recently I wrote about 7 signs showing that the earth has been cooling and likely will continue to cool. To back this up, Kenneth Richards commented in a reply that this year has seen 7 new peer-reviewed papers that show us that the earth’s surface temperature at the poles and elsewhere has been cooling since […]

2 New Papers: 92% Of Polar Bear Subpopulations Stable, Increasing…Inuit Observe ‘Too Many Polar Bears Now’

Inuit: Bears ‘Catch Seals Even If The Ice Is Really Thin’ Scientists: ‘Unlikely Polar Bears Are At Risk From AGW’ Image source: York et al., 2016, Journal of Ecology and Evolution. Most of the world’s polar bears live in Canada.  Hunters and elders from northern Canada’s native communities have been immersed in studying polar bear ecology […]

2 More New Papers Affirm There Is More Arctic Ice Coverage Today Than During The 1400s

2 More New Papers Affirm There Is More Arctic Ice Coverage Today Than During The 1400s

 A Shrinking Anthropogenic Signal  Continues To Emerge In The Arctic Earlier this year, Stein et al., 2017 published a reconstruction of Arctic sea ice variations throughout the Holocene that appeared to establish that there is more Arctic sea ice now than for nearly all of the last 10,000 years. The study region, the Chukchi Sea, […]

Warming Defied…Greenland Glacier Growth Over Past 5 Years… Polar Bears Leaving Early For Ice!

The Arctic is defying the alarmist melting predictions made by global warming activists and scientists. An Embarrassment! First, Vencore Weather here writes that Greenland Summit Station “will experience high temperatures around -40°F which continues the very cold and well-below normal trend for the month of November“. Moreover Vencore presents 2 NASA/MODIS satellite photos of Greenland’s Petermann […]

Scientists Affirm: 'No, The Arctic Is Not Melting' ... 'Nothing Has Changed Since 1900'

Scientists Affirm: ‘No, The Arctic Is Not Melting’ … ‘Nothing Has Changed Since 1900’

Global Warming Theory ‘Completely Disconnected From the Observations’ Extensive analysis of temperature trends in the Arctic reveals that there has been no detectable long-term change since the beginning of the 20th century, and thus predictions of a sea ice-free Arctic in the coming decades due to dramatically rising temperatures are not rooted in observation. Butina, […]

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm 'Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration' In Sea Level Rise

Reality vs. Theory: Scientists Affirm ‘Recent Lack Of Any Detectable Acceleration’ In Sea Level Rise

Scientists: ‘Loud Divergence Between Sea Level Reality And Climate Change Theory’ Global Sea Level ‘Acceleration’ Just 0.002 mm/year² According to peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science, anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the cause of Arctic sea ice decline.  In fact, peer-reviewed, “consensus” climate science indicates the causal relationship is so direct and so linear that it can be said with […]

New Paper: Defying Models, There Has Been No Long-Term Linear Decline In Arctic Sea Ice

New Paper: Defying Models, There Has Been No Long-Term Linear Decline In Arctic Sea Ice

Uncoupled: CO2 And Sea Ice Anthropogenic CO2 emissions have risen linearly since the mid-1940s. According to climate models, anthropogenic CO2 emissions drive trends in polar sea ice.   The sea ice extent in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres should therefore gradually decline (linearly) as human emissions rise. However, neither the Arctic nor Antarctic sea ice […]

Polar Bear Expert's Book Goes Global As Demand Grows For Science De-Indoctrination

Polar Bear Expert’s Book Goes Global As Demand Grows For Science De-Indoctrination

No doubt today there’s a huge demand for science de-indoctrination – especially among children – in a variety of fields, ranging from nutrition, climate science, economics and even eugenics (still!). Government corruption of the sciences is as old as civilization itself. It will never go away and so the best we can hope for is to […]

As La Nina Looms, Warmists Skid Into Panic Mode...Global Warming Pause Set To Surpass Two Decades!

As La Nina Looms, Warmists Skid Into Panic Mode…Global Warming Pause Set To Surpass Two Decades!

At this point last year global warming alarmists and global socialism politicians were as giddy and as optimistic as ever. Everything was falling into place as it looked as if nothing would prevent them from imposing their green regime. The Pope was on their side, global temperatures had been near record highs (thanks to an […]

"Net Increase In Greenland Ice Mass...First Time This Century" Amid Northern Hemisphere Cool-Down

“Net Increase In Greenland Ice Mass…First Time This Century” Amid Northern Hemisphere Cool-Down

The Arctic and the Northern Hemisphere surprise experts with impressive snow and ice gains, decade-long stability. Reader David at Facebook brought my attention to the fact that Greenland this year has in fact been increasing in ice mass. The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) was forced to admit: Overall, however, reduced melting and […]

Greenland “Embarrassment” To Climate Warmists …Cold Autumn/Frigid Winter Projected For Europe

Schneefan here reports that the Alps are seeing heavy snowfall down to 1800 meters elevation: live-video. And if there’s a sure sign that fall is arriving in Europe, it is that the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest peak, is forecasting snow for the next 7 consecutive days: Source: www.wetteronline.de/wetter/zugspitze Some may be asking what remains ahead for […]

Unanticipated Stability: Latest Polar Conditions Show No Signs Of Global Warming Melting

Weather and climate analyst Schneefan here writes of “early frost” in the Arctic and how Greenland snow and ice have grown after being hit by a “snow bomb”. This contradicts the expectations of global warming alarmists. The polar summer this year appears to have ended prematurely. The mean temperature of the central Arctic above 80°N […]

Since 1993, Greenland's Ice Sheet Melt Has Added Just 0.39 Of A Centimeter To Global Sea Levels

Since 1993, Greenland’s Ice Sheet Melt Has Added Just 0.39 Of A Centimeter To Global Sea Levels

Exposing ‘Staggering’ Ice Sheet Melt Deceptions In recent months, two new papers published in The Cryosphere have provided a condensed summary of the ice-melt and sea-level-rise consequences of global warming for the Arctic region. 1.  Between 1900 and 2010, the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) has melted so extensively and so rapidly that the GIS ice-melt contribution […]

Polar Stability: Antarctic Cold Deepens, Arctic Refuses To Melt Faster In June/July 2017

Schneefan at his excellent German climate and weather site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de here reports that Arctic sea ice has grown in mass recently, defying the doomsday scenarios that a re-hyperventilating Al Gore has been hawking lately. Schneefan writes that Arctic sea ice volume at the start of August at about the mean of the 2004 – 2013 […]

Climate Models Out Of Whack …Also Warming From Arctic Soot Underestimated

What follows is another report on how it’s “back-to-the drawing-board” for climate models. ============================================== Climate models underestimate soot amounts and their warming effect in the Arctic By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translation/editing of German text by P Gosselin) Soot (black carbon aerosol) is a climate warming aerosol. Some years ago we recognized […]

Amazonian Cold Snap Grips South America...Veteran Meteorologist Calls It "Spectacular"

Amazonian Cold Snap Grips South America…Veteran Meteorologist Calls It “Spectacular”

Yesterday at Twitter here meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a well-known climate science antagonist, directed our attention to the NCEP temperature situation for South America. Yikes! The massive scale of the cold is of Amazonian proportions, with temperatures well below normal across the entire continent. Bastardi even called the cold “spectacular”. Recently snow was reported to have fallen in […]

Swiss Daily: "Record Cold July In Greenland"...Alarmists "Struggling To Explain" As Arctic Island Cools

Swiss Daily: “Record Cold July In Greenland”…Alarmists “Struggling To Explain” As Arctic Island Cools

We have all heard about the record-breaking ice mass balance and cold temperature reading of -33°C recently set in Greenland — the Arctic island that is supposedly the canary in the climate coal mine. It turns out that things up there are colder than we may be led to believe and that the alleged warming […]
