Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi Issues NSIDC Caveat Emptor After Claim Global Warming Behind Record Sea Ice

Veteran Meteorologist Joe Bastardi Issues NSIDC Caveat Emptor After Claim Global Warming Behind Record Sea Ice

Weatherbell Analytics presents its latest Saturday Summary featuring the one and only Joe Bastardi. There used to be a time when meteorologists truly admired and trusted the work and data put out by national weather services. After all if you couldn’t trust them, who could you trust! But those days are becoming a thing of […]

Raw Weather Data Destroyed, Lost Forever?…USHCN, NOAA And GHCN “Prime Manipulators”

Raw Weather Data Destroyed, Lost Forever?…USHCN, NOAA And GHCN “Prime Manipulators”

Some scientists devote their lives painstakingly assembling fragments of evidence to piece together a picture of the past. They deserve tremendous credit. Unfortunately today we appear to have inept or sleazy scientists who take collected data and destroy it - thus permanently blinding our view of the past. These people deserve to be loathed.

NASA’s Arctic Fudge Factory: “More Than Half” Of Claimed Arctic Warming Stems From “Data Adjustments”

NASA’s Arctic Fudge Factory: “More Than Half” Of Claimed Arctic Warming Stems From “Data Adjustments”

As global warming is being used as justification for profound policy shifts, one has to wonder if the one-sided fudging of data that produces the appearance of more warming is a deliberate attempt to deceive and defraud the public. ============================= Is GISS Also Cheating in the Arctic? By Ed Caryl Almost four years ago, I […]

German Prof Friedrich-Karl Ewert Dismisses Visions Of Future Ocean Acidification…”Exaggerated Claims”

German Prof Friedrich-Karl Ewert Dismisses Visions Of Future Ocean Acidification…”Exaggerated Claims”

The ocean-acid-heads are tripping out once again, trying to scare the public with their hallucinatory visions of future marine catastrophes. In a hearing by the Lower Saxony Environment Committee on June 16, 2014, Professor Stefan Rahmstorf (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research) once again announced panic warnings of melting ice in the Arctic and ocean-acidification. EIKE […]

WeatherBell “Saturday Summary” Debunks 6 Climate Alarmism Falsehoods In Less Than 10 Minutes!

WeatherBell “Saturday Summary” Debunks 6 Climate Alarmism Falsehoods In Less Than 10 Minutes!

If you don’t have the truth, then some folks rely on lies and hope others will be fooled and stay so. Such is the case with global warming climate science. Almost every measure of global warming has stopped cooperating with the alarmists over the last 10 years. Now they have to make things up. At Weatherbell […]

Warmist Year Of Disappointment? Likelihood Of “Super El Niño” Rapidly Fading…Arctic Set For Impressive Rebound

Warmist Year Of Disappointment? Likelihood Of “Super El Niño” Rapidly Fading…Arctic Set For Impressive Rebound

Looks like yet another model projection is about to join that now overflowing mass grave of failed climate and weather model projections. The latest to join it is the projection that 2014 would bring a “super El Niño”, and with it, the warmists are hoping, a new global temperature record. At Weatherbell Joe Bastardi has posted his latest […]

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “Not Going To Have To Worry About The Arctic Ice”…Arctic Scare Melting Away!

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “Not Going To Have To Worry About The Arctic Ice”…Arctic Scare Melting Away!

UPDATED: Joe has contacted me and I’ve added a correction concerning the AMO-hurricane connection, which I misinterpreted from the video. See his comment below after my post. ===================================== Veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi presents lots of interesting background information on hurricanes in his newest Saturday Summary, reminding viewers that they were much worse back in the […]

Models Wrong Again…Sea Ice Break-Up Caused In Large Part By Storm-Generated Oceanic Wave And Wind Dynamics!

Models Wrong Again…Sea Ice Break-Up Caused In Large Part By Storm-Generated Oceanic Wave And Wind Dynamics!

Spiegel science journalist Axel Bojanowski has a fascinating piece on what likely causes most of the sea ice to break up. The Spiegel introduction: Sea ice is disappearing in the Arctic, around the Antarctic it is growing – today’s conventional climate models are unable to explain this contradiction. One effect has just been measured by […]

Warming? Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “Possibility We’re Going To Break All-Time Global Sea Ice Records”!

Warming? Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: “Possibility We’re Going To Break All-Time Global Sea Ice Records”!

Here Joe is talking about record highs! Weatherbell Analytics meteorologist Joe Bastardi, a person studying and observing the weather for some 40 years, says in his latest Saturday Summary that global sea ice this year has a pretty good chance of setting a new record high since satellite measurements began.

Spiegel On Antaractic Sea Ice: “Never Before Has There Been So Much Ice At This Time Of Year Since Measurements Began”!

Spiegel On Antaractic Sea Ice: “Never Before Has There Been So Much Ice At This Time Of Year Since Measurements Began”!

Science journalist Axel Bojanowski, a trained geologist, at Spiegel writes how scientists think they may have solved the riddle of growing Antarctic sea ice in a warming world. Mysteries surround Antarctica…scientists realizing oceans play huge role on climate. Photo: NASA-JPL. No question the planet has warmed some since 1900 as it crawls out of a little ice […]

University of Colorado Sea Level Rise Adjustment Appears To Be Unreasonable, Not Justifiable

University of Colorado Sea Level Rise Adjustment Appears To Be Unreasonable, Not Justifiable

Rebound and Sea Level By Ed Caryl During the peak of the last ice age, enough ice was collected in the great ice sheets that the global sea level was reduced by more than 120 meters. The ice sheets themselves were, in places, more than two kilometers thick. The great weight of that ice depressed […]

Great Lakes Open Water In A Death Spiral! Ice Cover Reaches 88% – Levels Not Observed Since 1994!

NASA here reports… A Great Freeze Over the Great Lakes Ice cover on North America’s Great Lakes reached 88 percent in mid-February 2014—levels not observed since 1994. Photo: NASA The average maximum ice extent since 1973 is just over 50 percent. It has surpassed 80 percent just five times in four decades. The lowest average […]

Global Warming Alarmist Bill Nye Confuses Antarctic Continent With The Arctic…Doesn’t Know North From South!

Global Warming Alarmist Bill Nye Confuses Antarctic Continent With The Arctic…Doesn’t Know North From South!

Bill Nye once again makes a fool of himself, this time on NBC’s Meet The Press before a national audience. At the 8:26 mark: “Would you say the Antarctic has less ice than it used to?” From NBC’s Meet The Press. Er, Bill, that graphic you’re holding up is one of the Arctic, and not […]

USA Sets Over 5000 Winter Records…Polar Conditions Dip Down Into Iran…Easterbrook Predicts Decades Of Cooling Ahead!

USA Sets Over 5000 Winter Records…Polar Conditions Dip Down Into Iran…Easterbrook Predicts Decades Of Cooling Ahead!

Polar conditions are spreading southwards so much worldwide that they have also taken grip in Iran, Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. Earlier this winter places like Cairo and Jerusalem saw snow for the first time in many decades. Extreme winter conditions forecast to grip Caspian Sea region. Chart shows the 7-day temperature anomaly forecast. Image cropped from: […]

Analysis Of Climate Models Show Albedo Not The Number One Arctic Amplifier After All! Albedo Was Hyped

Correction: A reader has pointed out that the paper is an analysis of some models which shows albedo, often claimed by alarmists as the primary Arctic climate driving factor, is not the number one Arctic amplifier after all, as skeptics have long maintained. The paper itself says nothing about the integrity of models, and thus the […]
