Scientists Surprised: Global Sea Ice Unexpectedly Stable Over Past 35 Years, Arctic Stable Last 10 Years!
By P Gosselin on 14. November 2015
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 […]
By P Gosselin on 8. November 2015
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!
By P Gosselin on 27. October 2015
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 […]

Veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi has another excellent Saturday Summary up at his Weatherbell Analytics site. At first he makes some philosophical points on why free markets are so crucial and why so many Catholics disagree with the latest Pope on climate change policy. That aside, Joe takes a peek at the upcoming European winter. The […]
Danish Meteorological Institute Data Show GREENLAND ICE MASS BALANCE HAS GROWN IMPRESSIVELY Since 2014
By P Gosselin on 31. August 2015
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!
By P Gosselin on 12. August 2015
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”
By P Gosselin on 6. August 2015
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”
By P Gosselin on 5. August 2015
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!
By P Gosselin on 4. August 2015
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 […]

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 […]

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!
By P Gosselin on 25. June 2015
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 […]

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?
By P Gosselin on 10. May 2015
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!
By P Gosselin on 25. April 2015
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 […]
By P Gosselin on 14. April 2015
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 […]
By P Gosselin on 13. April 2015
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!
By P Gosselin on 11. April 2015
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
By P Gosselin on 25. March 2015
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!
By P Gosselin on 3. March 2015
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 […]
