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 […]

Vencoreweather Meteorology: Global Sea Ice Has "Rebounded In Recent Weeks To Near Normal Levels"! La Nina Storming Back

Vencoreweather Meteorology: Global Sea Ice Has “Rebounded In Recent Weeks To Near Normal Levels”! La Nina Storming Back

Meteorologist Paul Dorian at Vencoreweather.com here has a post on the latest concerning El Nino and global sea ice. Not long ago the warmists and alarmists were jumping and hollering about the drop in Arctic sea ice, accompanied by talk (hope) of an ice-free Arctic. Arctic sea ice rebounds Looks like all the talk was […]

Upper STRATOSPHERE Over Arctic Sees Record High March Temperature. Europe Facing “Intensified March Winter”!

Recall how man-made CO2 emissions are supposed to cause a greenhouse effect in the troposphere, meaning the stratosphere above it is supposed to cool. Lately, that has not been the case at all – at least over the northern hemisphere, 65°N and above, over the better part of the last year. Schneefan here writes on […]

Arctic Sea Ice Trend May Have Turned The Corner As Ice Volume Picks Up Over Past 5 Years

As Arctic sea ice approaches its annual maximum level for the year, now is a good time to look at how it stands – especially in what some are claiming to be the hottest year on record. The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) here shows currently Arctic sea ice is at its highest level in years for […]

German DWD Weather Service Says North Pole Heat Spike, Atlantic Storm “Frank” Not Related To Climate Change!

Germany’s centre-left online weekly Die Zeit here presents an interview with a DWD German meteorologist concerning the late December warmth that hit the North Pole, an event that saw global warming activists and alarmists hollering it was evidence of manmade climate change. Surprisingly the usually very alarmist Die Zeit gave a relatively balanced account from […]

Comprehensive Analysis Sends Young/Columbia University Paper To The Dustbin …”Coup de Grâce” Results “Untenable”

Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt have been busy mapping the Medieval Warm Period using Google as a tool. Lately their focus has been on a number of studies examining temperature reconstructions from the Baffin Island and Western Greenland. This focus has been in part in response to a recent paper by Nicolás Young, a glacial […]

Data Surprise! Global Temperature Continues Stall, Polar Ice And Snow Cover Continue Surprising Growth

Thanks to German site wobleibtdieerderwärmung for providing what follows. The slightly negative linear trend in global temperature measured by RSS satellite (TLT) continues despite the El-Nino-driven warm 2015. Source: www.woodfortrees.org trend This flat trend has held since the end of 1997 and is closing in on two decades – catching a number of scientists by surprise. The […]

Large Number Of Climate Scientists, Officials Baffled Arctic Sea Ice Still Hasn’t Disappeared, But Has Grown Instead

Why hasn’t the Arctic  still not disappeared despite all the announcements that it would? By Dr. Dietrich E. Koelle [Translated, edited by P Gosselin] Announcements that the Arctic sea ice would soon disappear have been among the most favorite of claims made by publicity-seeking climatologists and leading American politicians. According to the following, there isn’t supposed […]

Journalistic Fraud: North Pole Region Saw Similar Warm Spikes Before... OVER 70 TIMES In Last 58 Years!

Journalistic Fraud: North Pole Region Saw Similar Warm Spikes Before… OVER 70 TIMES In Last 58 Years!

Last week the media, led by the Washington Post, screamed and hollered the North Pole was in meltdown as temperatures there rose some “5 degrees above normal”. In Europe some media outlets did not even bother converting the 50° Fahrenheit figure to (the less impressive sounding) 32°C. It is true that the temperature right at the North […]

Resurging Sea Ice: Antarctica Above Average Over Past 20 Years - Arctic Gaining Over Past 5 Years!

Resurging Sea Ice: Antarctica Above Average Over Past 20 Years – Arctic Gaining Over Past 5 Years!

Examining the hard data on sea ice extent at the Earth’s poles, it would be very tough to argue that the globe is warming. Melting has stopped in the Arctic In the Arctic sea ice extent has indeed on average dropped a million square kilometers. But a look at the plotted sea ice anomaly data we […]

Scientists Surprised: Global Sea Ice Unexpectedly Stable Over Past 35 Years, Arctic Stable Last 10 Years!

Scientists Surprised: Global Sea Ice Unexpectedly Stable Over Past 35 Years, Arctic Stable Last 10 Years!

It’s a good time to take a look at how global sea ice is doing at both poles. We were told over and over that the poles are the canary in the coal mine for global warming. If the sea ice melt trend accelerated, we were warned, then the planet was warming rapidly and societies […]

Northern Hemisphere Fall Ice/Snow Cover Explodes…9 Million Sq Km More Than In Hansen’s 1988

German climate website wobleibtdieerderwaermung here writes a post showing that the poles are not aware of global warming. The once high hyped canary-in-the-coal mine Arctic is just not getting much attention this year from the alarmists this year – because it is doing the very opposite of what they predicted! The German skeptic site writes […]

Geophysical Research Letters Shock Finding: In 2014 More Multiyear Ice Than Previous Nine Years…Arctic Winter 0.5 – 1.5°C Colder!

Has anyone been wondering why we’ve been hearing so little about the Arctic lately? New study says Arctic to remain frozen for many more years. MODIS image of the Arctic, Jeff Schmaltz – NASA Earth Observatory Reader Dennis A. sent me the following abstract of a new paper by Haas et al: Ice thickness in the […]
