7th International Non-Alarmist Climate Conference Sells Out! Yet Not A Single German Media Outlet Shows Up

7th International Non-Alarmist Climate Conference Sells Out! Yet Not A Single German Media Outlet Shows Up

In early April, the 7th Climate Conference, featuring distinguished non-alarmist scientists and organized by the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), took place at the Steigenberger Hotel Mannheimer Hof in Mannheim, Germany. The 2-day conference featured heavyweights like Richard Lindzen, Nir Shaviv and Henrik Svensmark who brought the message that today’s climate science tells us […]

Analysis Shows Solar Modules Cause More Greenhouse Gas Emissions Than Modern Coal Power Plants!

It turns out that because of the emissions of extraordinarily potent greenhouse gases NF3 and SF6 and energy during the manufacture of solar modules, solar energy ends up being worse for the climate than burning coal (assuming the global warming hypothesis is valid). A Swiss engineer has made a thorough analysis of the greenhouse gas emissions […]

Daily Energy From “Negligible” Solar Irradiance Variation Turns Out To Be Far More Than 400,000 A-Bombs!

Remember how alarmists say that the variation in solar irradiance was too small to have any real impact on the earth’s climate, and thus gets neglected by the IPCC? Reader GuarionexSandoval has written a comment which I’m elevating to a post, see below. It too shows that if the variation solar irradiance from the 11-year cycle […]

Decarbonization Can Only Have Marginal Effects On Future Climate At Best. Ultra-High Price For Negligible Results

Decarbonization Can Only Have Marginal Effects On Future Climate At Best. Ultra-High Price For Negligible Results

By Ed Hoskins This short illustrated essay questions government efforts to combat global warming and climate change from three points of view: 1. The influence of CO2 on temperature 2. Decarbonisation outcomes 3. Politics This essay examines quantifiable and hopefully non-contentious aspects of the question. 1. Influence of carbon dioxide CO2 on temperature The temperature-increasing capacity of […]

Earth’s Surface Temperature Regulated By Natural Heat Dissipation Mechanisms In The Atmosphere

Earth’s Surface Temperature Regulated By Natural Heat Dissipation Mechanisms In The Atmosphere

On Climate Sensitivity – Thunderstorms By Ed Caryl Everyone Is Correct – Just At Different Times. Since the time of the patron saint of Climatologists, Svante August Arrhenius, climate researchers have been attempting to pin down climate sensitivity, the amount of warming that various constituents will cause when present in the atmosphere. This is not […]

Geologist Sebastian Lüning: Scientific Evidence Showing Sun/Oceans As Primary Climate Drivers Is ‘Massive, Overwhelming’!

Geologist Sebastian Lüning: Scientific Evidence Showing Sun/Oceans As Primary Climate Drivers Is ‘Massive, Overwhelming’!

The Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy EIKE announces that the 7th International Climate and Energy Conference is taking place at the Steigenberger Hotel in Mannheim, April, 10 2014. The event is being held by EIKE. The planned speakers include renowned scientists like Richard Lindzen, Henryk Svensmark and Nir Shaviv. Complete program and info here. […]

Schellnhuber: “The Fire That Burned In President Barroso Is Pretty Much Out … Appears Exhausted”!

Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber, often regarded in Europe as the Pope John of climate change, has an interview in German flagship political daily the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). Schellnhuber is often regarded as the father of the 2°C limit the UN and warmists keep talking about. To not exceed the 2°C warming limit, Schellnhuber and the warmists […]

Andrew Revkin, If It Wasn’t For Black Carbon Nobody Would Be Prosperous Enough To Buy Your Music

I see New York Times science journalist Andrew Revkin has applied his musical talent to record and release a song criticizing evil black carbon: I’m still trying to figure out people like Revkin. They constantly rail against the very things that make their lives pleasant, safe and fulfilling. To me it’s as rational as hating African-Americans, […]

Cold Weather Foils German Efforts To Fight Global Warming! Coal Consumption Rises Again…Wind Falters

If you think things couldn’t get more absurd with Germany’s Energiewende, think again. The German Bundesverbandes der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft (Federal Association of Energy and Water Management) or BDEW, released its latest report on electricity production in Germany. The BDEW represents about 1800 companies of the energy and power sector. Germany burns more coal, emits […]

Defining CO2 As A Pollutant Is The Worst Kind Of Lie…We Really Don’t Have Much In The Atmosphere

A Christmas message for alarmists By Ed Caryl I am constantly struck by the extremes that the alarmists will reach attempting to convince the rest of us that we should abandon our comfortable life-styles and live in fuel poverty, burning our corn in our cars, eschewing all use of fuels that have accumulated in the […]

Analysis Of Entire Inventory Of Historical Data Clearly Points To One Conclusion: Natural Factors Are Dominant

Analysis Of Entire Inventory Of Historical Data Clearly Points To One Conclusion: Natural Factors Are Dominant

A History of Global Temperature By Ed Caryl We have somewhat reliable global scale land surface and sea surface temperature measurements since about 1880. We have lower troposphere satellite temperature measurements since 1979. We have ice core CO2 measurements and real atmospheric CO2 measurements that overlap and agree at the overlap for this time span. […]

Leading Climate Policy Advisor On Warsaw: “A Failure Even When Measured By Lowest Expectations…2°C Target Failed”

Leading Climate Policy Advisor On Warsaw: “A Failure Even When Measured By Lowest Expectations…2°C Target Failed”

The online Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) features an interview here with think-tank director and top German climate advisor Dr. Oliver Geden, who has of late become Germany’s latest enfant terrible for climate activists. Geden, a true warmist, has become exasperated by the approach used by policymakers in curbing CO2 emissions, and views goals like the 2°C […]

Germany Joins Japan, Canada, Australia In Abandoning Useless Fight Against Climate Change…Actions Speak Louder!

Germany has always been viewed as one of the leaders in “fighting climate change”. But when you examine what the country has really accomplished in reducing CO2 emissions, we see that country’s actions tell another story. And when you examine its current activities, one thing stands clear: Germany is no longer taking the futile fight against climate […]

While Global Coal Consumption Jumps 70% Since 2000, Global Temperature Falls 0.03°C Since 2002!

While Global Coal Consumption Jumps 70% Since 2000, Global Temperature Falls 0.03°C Since 2002!

According to 53-page report here released by environmental activist group urgewald.org/, which looks at financing of the coal industry by major banks, global coal consumption has risen “to a staggering 7.9 billion tons annually”; that’s a 69% increase since the year 2000. A real “climate catastrophe” hyperventilates the Urgewald report! And so applying global warming theory, which claims […]

Greenpeace Warns Russia! … Hopes For COP 19 Already Fading … Green Cheerleader Germany Spews More CO2

If Russia doesn’t behave responsibly soon, then there’s going to be a price to pay, Greenpeace is warning. Greenpeace thinks it can put the political pressure on Russia. We suspect that Russia as a result is getting really nervous by now and that she will soon cave in to Greenpeace’s mighty demands…maybe even within a few days. […]
