Russian Scientists Dismiss CO2 Forcing, Predict Decades Of Cooling, Connect Cosmic Ray Flux To Climate

Scientific Papers Predict Cooling In Coming Decades A new scientific paper authored by seven scientists affiliated with the Russian Academy of Sciences was just published in the scientific journal Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences: Physics.

50 Inverted Hockey Sticks - Scientists Find Earth Cools As CO2 Rises

50 Inverted Hockey Sticks – Scientists Find Earth Cools As CO2 Rises

Modern ‘Warmth’ A Brief Excursion From 8,000-Year (Continuing) Cooling Trend The scientific literature is replete with evidence that the geological record for the Holocene (the last 10,000 years) fails to support the concept that rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations cause ocean and land temperatures to rise. Actually, the scientific literature strongly suggests that the correlation between […]

Solar Cycle Quietest in 200 Years – And Surface Warming Much Slower Than Model Projections!

The sun in January 2017, and: a “pause” or not? By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt Translated/condensed by P Gosselin) In the previous month our sun was very quiet. A month earlier there had been little activity at first, but then picked up some later in the month. On average the sunspot number SSN was 25.8, […]

Station At Germany's Highest Summit Measures Midwinter Cooling Of Over -3°C Over Past 30 Years!

Station At Germany’s Highest Summit Measures Midwinter Cooling Of Over -3°C Over Past 30 Years!

The summit of Germany’s tallest mountain, Zugspitze, located in the Bavarian Alps near the Austrian border, is 2,962 meters high and thus well isolated from any temperature data corruption sources, such as urban sprawl. The weather station at the “Top of Germany” has measured 3°C of cooling for the month of January over the past […]

Germany/Austria January 2017 Mean Temperature Dives …Over 2.7°C Below Normal

Germany’s DWD national weather service just issued the preliminary results for the country’s January 2017 mean temperature. According the DWD’s approximately 2000 stations scattered across the country, January’s mean temperature came in 2.7°C colder than the 1981-2010 mean. Especially southern Germany was cold, as was its neighbor Austria, see below. The lowest recorded temperature in Germany […]

Robust Evidence NOAA Temperature Data Hopelessly Corrupted By Warming Bias, Manipulation

Robust Evidence NOAA Temperature Data Hopelessly Corrupted By Warming Bias, Manipulation

Dr. Thomas Karl recently retired as Director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In 1989, Karl’s stated position was that global temperatures cooled between 1921 and 1979.   Source: RealClimateScience “Analysis of warming since 1881 shows most of the increase in global temperature happened before 1919 – before the more recent sharp rise in the […]

Defying IPCC Models, U.S. Blizzard Frequency Has Nearly Quadrupled Since 1960, As U.S. Continues Cooling

Defying IPCC Models, U.S. Blizzard Frequency Has Nearly Quadrupled Since 1960, As U.S. Continues Cooling

What Models Say: ♦  IPCC TAR (2001):  “Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms“ ♦   Kunkel et al., 2002:  “Surface conditions favorable for heavy lake-effect snow decreased in frequency by 50% and 90% for the HadCM2 and CGCM1 [models], respectively, by the late 21st Century. This reduction was due almost entirely to … an increase in […]

Shock Freeze A Harbinger Of Things To Come? The Many Signs Of More Cooling!

As Europe and USA brace for more frigid weather, some are asking if this is what we need to expect to cope with in the future. Now it’s clear that the recent “record warm” 2 years had little to do with CO2, and instead were almost entirely due to the well-known El-Nino phenomenon over the […]

North Atlantic Cooling Has Plunged Below 1950s (And 1800s) Levels – And Scientists Project More Cooling

While it has understandably not received much, if any, media attention, the North Atlantic Ocean has been rapidly cooling since the mid-2000s, or for more than 10 years now.   The longer the cooling trend continues — and scientists are projecting more cooling for the coming decades  —  the more difficult it will be to […]

Crumbling ‘Consensus’: 500 Scientific Papers Published In 2016 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Climate science is supposed to be settled, right? We are told that there is an overwhelming agreement, or consensus, among scientists that most weather and climate changes that have occurred since the mid-20th century have been caused by human activity — our fossil fuel burning and CO2 emissions in particular.  We are told that natural mechanisms that […]
