It tells us that the continent will likely end the year on a cold note after having experienced a very warm September. Already vast areas on […]

University of Victoria: Eurasian Cold Waves Not Influenced By Arctic Sea Ice Melt!

University of Victoria: Eurasian Cold Wave Not Influenced By Arctic Sea Ice Melt By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) The climate discussion between the two different fronts had ground to a halt for a long time. Nobody wanted to or could talk to the other. Luckily that has improved […]

Warnings Of A "December To Remember" As No. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches 2nd Highest Level!

Warnings Of A “December To Remember” As No. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches 2nd Highest Level!

What follows is an interesting chart presented by Joe Bastardi’s Daily Update at Weatherbell Analytics. There’s been a lot of talk about the current warm weather conditions up in the high Arctic, but little talk about the impressive snow cover over the northern hemisphere and the extreme and vast cold over Russia and Siberia. What happened […]

Satellites Show -1.2° C Temperature Drop Since Early 2016 As Scientists Project Low Solar Activity, Cooling In Coming Decades

The most recent Super El Niño natural warming event exerted its maximum effect on surface temperature anomalies during the last few months of 2015 and the first few months of 2016.  Since then, surface temperatures over land have dramatically declined by about 1.2° C according to the RSS satellite dataset. WoodForTrees graph: Since September, the […]

NOAA Forced To Totally Overhaul Winter Forecast For Northern Europe, Russia, As Cold Spreads

NOAA Forced To Totally Overhaul Winter Forecast For Northern Europe, Russia, As Cold Spreads

Models and experts of every type have had plenty of setbacks making forecasts for chaotic systems. Recent examples include the election results and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman’s prediction that the US market would dive in response to the election of Trump (it in fact went on and set a new all-time record high). If anything has lost […]

Cold October... N. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches Near Record High ...Record Snow In Siberia!

Cold October… N. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches Near Record High …Record Snow In Siberia!

Cold German October Germany’s Deutsche Wetterdienst (DWD) weather service reports the preliminary weather data for October. At a mean of 8.6°C, the month came in 0.6°C colder than normal (compared to the 1981-2010 mean) and even came in 0.4°C colder than the 1961-1990 mean. The DWD hints that natural variability factors are to blame for […]

Revealed: IPCC Adds 0.3°C Of Phantom Warming Between 3rd, 5th Reports ... Met Office Removes 0.3°C From 1880s-1940s Warming

Revealed: IPCC Adds 0.3°C Of Phantom Warming Between 3rd, 5th Reports … Met Office Removes 0.3°C From 1880s-1940s Warming

In the IPCC’s 2001 third report (TAR), the total surface temperature increase for the 20th century was reported to be “about 0.6°C”. IPCC TAR (2001): “The global average surface temperature has increased over the 20th century by about 0.6°C.” This Met Office graph of global temperatures for 1860-2000 was included in the IPCC’s 2001 report.

Weather Models Now Agreeing: Early WINTER BRUTALITY For Europe/Asia, With "Vicious" Conditions!

Weather Models Now Agreeing: Early WINTER BRUTALITY For Europe/Asia, With “Vicious” Conditions!

Seasonal forecasts are iffy. Right now, however, there are strengthening indicators showing winter brutality in the pipeline for Europe rushing at us like an express train. Don’t let the current relatively benign autumn conditions fool you. I’ve been following all of this over the past couple of weeks, and as a result decided last Friday to […]

Early Europe Winter? ...And Greenland Sees "Record" 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Early Europe Winter? …And Greenland Sees “Record” 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Yesterday veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi brought to our attention an article by the Washington Post here, where it reports forecasters are warning that the coming winter “could get nasty” for the Washington D.C. area. Although the National Weather Service predicts “equal chances of a cold or mild winter”, private meteorologists warn the winter could get […]

Scientists: 'Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends'

Scientists: ‘Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends’

According to a recently published paper in the journal Science, (Cook et al., 2016, “Ocean forcing of glacier retreat in the western Antarctic Peninsula”), between 1945 and 2009 the mean ocean temperature warmed at depths of 150 to 400 meters for about 3/4ths of the waters surrounding the western Antarctic Peninsula (AP).  The other 1/4th […]

No New Record? UAH Data Show 2016 Still Trails Behind 1998 Record Warm Year

The following are excerpts from German skeptic site here, wobleibtdieerderwaermung. ==================================================== By Schneefan Already in August, is the year 2016 a bit cooler than the year 1998, according to satellite data from UAH. That situation remains the same as September saw a reading of +0.44°C. The global 2m temperatures with a deviation of +0.38°K eased […]

2015 Paper Finds New Zealand Warmer In 1860s, 'Contaminated Data' Falsely Warms Last Century By 325%

2015 Paper Finds New Zealand Warmer In 1860s, ‘Contaminated Data’ Falsely Warms Last Century By 325%

According to scientists de Freitas, Dedekind, and Brill (2015), removing “contaminated data” from New Zealand’s  nation-wide temperature record — and using updated measurement techniques rather than error-ridden outdated ones — reduces the long-term (1909 to 2009) New Zealand warming trend from today’s +0.91°C to +0.28°C, a 325% change. de Freitas et al., 2015 New Zealand’s […]

'Hide The Decline' Unveiled: 50 Non-Hockey Stick Graphs Quash Modern 'Global' Warming Claims

‘Hide The Decline’ Unveiled: 50 Non-Hockey Stick Graphs Quash Modern ‘Global’ Warming Claims

  We are told the globe is rapidly and dangerously warming, and that this rapid and dangerous warming has been predominantly caused by the steep rise in anthropogenic CO2 emissions that began about the mid-1940s. We even have a widely-recognized “hockey stick” graph of the Northern Hemisphere — created by Michael Mann in the late 1990s […]

Germany’s All-Time Record High Set In 2015 Looks Dubious …Likely Due To UHI / Instrumentation Error

At the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), Helmut Kuntz writes that Germany’s all-time record high temperature recorded last year, 2015, is likely an artifact of the urban heat island effect (UHI) and instrumentation error margins. In 2015 the Kitzingen weather station located in southern Germany set a new all-time high when it reached […]

New Paper Documents Imperceptible CO2 Influence On The Greenhouse Effect Since 1992

New Paper Documents Imperceptible CO2 Influence On The Greenhouse Effect Since 1992

Between the years 1992 and 2014, anthropogenic CO2 emissions rates grew by 65%, or from a yearly average of 6.1 gigatons of carbon (GtC) in 1992 to a rate of 10.1 GtC by 2014 (Global Carbon Budget, 2014). However, according to a new Nature paper entitled “A Hiatus of the Greenhouse Effect” by Song, Wang, & […]

Breitbart London: "Full Extent Of Skullduggery" By "Cabal Of Lying Climate Alarmists" Has Been Uncovered"!

Breitbart London: “Full Extent Of Skullduggery” By “Cabal Of Lying Climate Alarmists” Has Been Uncovered”!

Kenneth Richard’s post from yesterday on how a small group of alarmist scientists tried to whitewash away the global cooling scare of the 1970s has been making some waves. Not only was it made the top headline at Climate Depot, but also James Delingpole at Breitbart London here has written a scathing piece about the fraudulent, totalitarian […]

Massive Cover-up Exposed: 285 Papers From 1960s-'80s Reveal Robust Global Cooling Scientific 'Consensus'

Massive Cover-up Exposed: 285 Papers From 1960s-’80s Reveal Robust Global Cooling Scientific ‘Consensus’

Beginning in 2003, software engineer William Connolley quietly removed the highly inconvenient references to the global cooling scare of the 1970s from Wikipedia, the world’s most influential and accessed informational source. It had to be done.  Too many skeptics were (correctly) pointing out that the scientific “consensus” during the 1960s and 1970s was that the […]

Climate Propaganda: German Augusts In Fact Cooling Over Past 20 Years, Now Barely Above 1930s Levels!

What’s wrong here? August in Germany is not getting warmer By Josef Kowatsch and Sebastian Lüning (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) According to the German DWD national weather service August 2016 recorded a mean temperature of 17.7°C. The start of the month was really cool, but the last part of the month the temperature climbed to peak […]

Climate Site Slams Germany’s DWD Weather Service For “Heating Up” Summer Press Release

The mean temperature for Germany in August, 2016, was 17.7°C, which turns out to be 0.2°K colder than the figure reported in the overheated August 30, 2016 press release issued by the German DWD national weather service. The August result makes the month 0.7°C warmer than the 1981-2010 mean. Nothing extraordinary. However, the DWD has had a habit […]
