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 […]

A Single Meteorologist Explains What $165 Billion In Government-Funded Climate Science Couldn’t

A Single Meteorologist Explains What $165 Billion In Government-Funded Climate Science Couldn’t

Large scale oceanic oscillations responsible for most of the post 1980 “warming” By Joe Bastardi I think global warming is a misnomer. There is a distortion of the temperature pattern on the globe, brought about by the natural cyclical warming events of the warm PDO and warm AMO together. I spoke about this at Heartland a […]

PIOMASS Data Analysis: “UNPARALLELED” 3-SIGMA LOW JULY ICE MELT…Lowest On Satellite Record!

Germans Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt and Frank Bosse took a look at the July 2014 Arctic sea ice data. They found astonishing results. What follows is the Arctic sea ice part of the story I reported on here. ===================================== The Sun In July 2014 And Arctic Sea Ice In Mid Summer By Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz […]

Shock! Leading Climate Institute Just Discovers That Ice Age Climate Behaves Differently Than Today’s!

Germany’s once prestigious Alfred Wegener Institute has just issued a stunning press release informing the whole world about a new ground-breaking study showing that we do not need to expect the same climate change today that the earth saw during the last ICE AGE – because, you see, the pre-conditions back then were different. Really! […]

“Urban Heat Island” Effect Appears To Be Far More Pronounced In Polar Regions Than You Might Think!

+++++ Polar Islands Of Heat By Ed Caryl I would like to thank “John”, a commenter on my article on why the Antarctic sea ice is expanding, for inspiring this article. Other writers and researchers have noticed that temperature measurements in the polar regions are influenced by nearby heat sources, even the body heat of […]
