2 New Papers Indicate Modern Climate Still In A 'Colder Stage', Modulated By Solar Activity, ENSO

2 New Papers Indicate Modern Climate Still In A ‘Colder Stage’, Modulated By Solar Activity, ENSO

Graph from Perner et al. (2018) that shows modern-day Arctic sea ice (furthest left navy trend line) is still only slightly lower than during the Little Ice Age (LIA), and much more extensive (more ice) than during the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA), Roman Warm Period (RWP), and nearly all of the last 7,000 years. Song et al., […]

485 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

‘Consensus’ Science Takes A Hit In 2017 During 2017,  485 scientific papers have been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media. These 485 new […]

Global Cooling Expected For 2018 …Warming Projection May Be One Of The Great Scientific Blunders Of Modern Times

Global warming scientists continue struggling to find an explanation for the nearly 2 decades long global warming pause that has taken hold of the planet since the late 1990s. The most recent temperature spike was due to the natural El Nino event at the equatorial Pacific, and that has disappeared over the last months. Alarmists […]

The Great New Year's Freeze Of 2017 Setting Cold Records ...And Leading To Outlandish 'Climate' Claims

The Great New Year’s Freeze Of 2017 Setting Cold Records …And Leading To Outlandish ‘Climate’ Claims

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi warned of a cold snap gripping the Eastern US many weeks ago, in October, at his Weatherbell Analytics site, which I visit almost daily. Chart source: NOAA, public domain. Today it’s all over the news: The Great Freeze of 2017 is smashing through the entire North American East, bringing with it a wave of […]

Temperatures To Decrease 0.5°C-0.7°C Due To Low Sunspots, Solar Minimum Image Source: Abdussamatov, 2012 During 2017, 120 papers linking historical and modern climate change to variations in solar activity and its modulators (clouds, cosmic rays) have been published in scientific journals. It has been increasingly established that low solar activity (fewer sunspots) and increased cloud […]

New Paper: Humans Caused Central U.S. To Cool By -0.35°C Since The 1940s As Crop Yields Soared

New Paper: Humans Caused Central U.S. To Cool By -0.35°C Since The 1940s As Crop Yields Soared

Post-1940s ‘Agricultural Intensification’ Caused Deep Cooling, 400% Crop Growth In a new paper published in Geophysical Research Letters, three MIT scientists assert that the human influence on the climate of the Central United States is dominated by agricultural activity rather than greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Human activity has caused a significant long-term cooling trend (-0.35°C between […]

25 Papers: Natural Forcing Explains Why The Globe's Oceans Have Been Recently Warming AND Cooling

25 Papers: Natural Forcing Explains Why The Globe’s Oceans Have Been Recently Warming AND Cooling

  In assessing the global-scale trends in near-surface (0-20 m) ocean temperatures between 1900 and 2010, Gouretski et al. (2012) determined that the world’s oceans warmed by about 1.1°C between 1900 and 1945 (~0.24°C per decade), but then only warmed by an additional net 0.3°C between 1945 and 2010 (~0.046°C per decade), including a cooling […]

More Research Points To “Temperature Decline In The Coming Decades And Centuries”

Geologist Dr. Norman Page left a comment which I’ve decided to upgrade to a post. In it he writes solar and La Nina observations fit well with his recent paper showing that climate is controlled by natural orbital and solar activity cycles. Dr. Page is among a growing number of scientists who share the general view […]

"Giving Global Warming The Cold Shoulder"...Central European Winters Have Cooled Last 30 Years!

“Giving Global Warming The Cold Shoulder”…Central European Winters Have Cooled Last 30 Years!

We’re always hearing from the European media how winters supposedly have been getting warmer. Yet when we look out the window and look at the hard data, the claim crumbles. Atlanta ice box, 8-15 cm of snow! Today snow is forecast across much of Europe. In the US Dr. Ryan Maue tweets if there is […]

Time Running Out For Global Warming Hoaxsters… 7 New Studies Show Large Parts Of Globe Cooling!

Recently I wrote about 7 signs showing that the earth has been cooling and likely will continue to cool. To back this up, Kenneth Richards commented in a reply that this year has seen 7 new peer-reviewed papers that show us that the earth’s surface temperature at the poles and elsewhere has been cooling since […]

7 Major Signs The Globe's Surface Has Been Cooling, And Will Continue To Cool

7 Major Signs The Globe’s Surface Has Been Cooling, And Will Continue To Cool

By now, after some 30 years of dire warnings, you’d think that the warming of the globe and ice mass reduction would be much further along than it actually is. Yet there are a number of major signs that show the opposite (cooling and freezing) are happening: 1. Arctic ice has stabilized over the past […]

Before 1960s-'70s Global Cooling Was Erased, It Caused Droughts, Crop Failures, Glacier Advance, Ice Age Threats

Before 1960s-’70s Global Cooling Was Erased, It Caused Droughts, Crop Failures, Glacier Advance, Ice Age Threats

Changing Scientific Consensus 1970s: Global Cooling A Serious Threat Today: Global Cooling Never Happened Until the mid-1980s, it was widely accepted in the peer-reviewed scientific literature that there was an abrupt global cooling trend between the 1940s and 1970s. The amplitude of the climate change amounted to more than -0.5°C of cooling in the Northern Hemisphere, as […]

While Record Cold Grips North America, Meteorologists Forecasting Severe 2017/18 Winter For US / Europe

Over the recent days we’ve been hearing about record snowfall in Montana, record low temperatures in Minnesota and Ontario, New York City “blowing away” a 103-year old record, vicious cold gripping Lebanon, PA. Moreover, Arctic sea ice and Greenland ice have surprised climatologists with a comeback over the past year. UPDATE: And now the UK braces for […]

New Quebec Study: Cold Kills …0.7% Increase Of Heart Failure For Each 1°C Drop!

I thought the following paper was interesting. No, lead-author Prof. Pierre Gosselin is not me from NTZ. But he very likely is a descendent the same family line. The first Gosselin (Gabriel) left Normandy-France and landed in Quebec City way back in 1653. As a devout Catholic, Gabriel earnestly started what was the population of Gosselins […]

More Indicators Point To Global Cooling, Warns German Scientist… Cooling Of “At least 1°C”

Has Global Cooling Begun? Von Dr. Dietrich E. Koelle (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) Now that the temperature maximum of the 1000-year cycle has been reached over the past two decades, a new global cooling phase can be expected  — as has been the case over the past 8000 years. Why would the natural […]
