Widespread Siberian Cold, Area As Big As Half The USA Now Under 40° Below

Widespread Siberian Cold, Area As Big As Half The USA Now Under 40° Below

I keep hearing how the Arctic is warmer than normal, and so it’s a sure sign of “global warming”. Yet I came across a chart earlier today showing conditions over Siberia, which of course is a vast region. What’s interesting is the extent and sheer depth of the cold that has gripped this area: Chart […]

Veteran Meteorologist Warns Europe Winter To Make "Global Headlines"..."Tremendous Amounts Of Snow"!

Veteran Meteorologist Warns Europe Winter To Make “Global Headlines”…”Tremendous Amounts Of Snow”!

A couple of days ago I reported here how Joe Bastardi warned that Europe would soon be turning cold and wintry. Well, he hasn’t backed off at all from that forecast and appears to be gaining more confidence with it. Although the timing may have shifted about a bit , the overall pattern remains: cold […]

The Hockey Stick Collapses: 60 New (2016) Scientific Papers Affirm Today's Warming Isn't Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable

The Hockey Stick Collapses: 60 New (2016) Scientific Papers Affirm Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable

Two fundamental tenets of the anthropogenic global warming narrative are (1) the globe is warming (i.e., it’s not just regional warming), and (2) the warming that has occurred since 1950 can be characterized as remarkable, unnatural, and largely unprecedented.  In other words, today’s climate is substantially and alarmingly different than what has occurred in the […]

1977 Spiegel Warned Of Little Ice Age Soon: "Widespread Glaciation" ..."Temperature Has Fallen 0.3°C"!

1977 Spiegel Warned Of Little Ice Age Soon: “Widespread Glaciation” …”Temperature Has Fallen 0.3°C”!

Back in the 1970s, many media outlets warned of global cooling and even a possible coming ice age. For example here I wrote about how Spiegel in 1974 grimly reported of threatening global cooling and that the odds of global warming were “at best” only 1 in 10,000! Current warm period “coming to an end” […]

Scientists: Greenland Is Now Much Colder With More Advanced Ice Sheet Margins Than 90% Of The Last  7,500 Years

Scientists: Greenland Is Now Much Colder With More Advanced Ice Sheet Margins Than 90% Of The Last 7,500 Years

Fifteen international scientists recently collaborated to assemble one of the most comprehensive analyses of temperature and ice sheet changes for Greenland and the Canadian Arctic ever produced.  Briner et al., (2016) synthesized over 100 records from a large and accumulating database to publish “Holocene climate change in Arctic Canada and Greenland” in the journal Quaternary […]

Another New Paper Reveals No Discernible Human Influence On Global Ocean Temperatures, Climate

Another New Paper Reveals No Discernible Human Influence On Global Ocean Temperatures, Climate

Three years ago, when the Rosenthal et al. (2013) paper was made available online from the journal Science, there was a bit of a stir among the purveyors of the humans-control-climate-with-their-CO2-emissions paradigm. Climate activist Michael Mann, for example, was ostensibly quite unhappy that a Medieval Warm Period (with +0.65°C warmer-than-now intermediate [0-700 m] ocean temperatures) was prominently […]

Polar Split Threatens To Shock-Freeze Europe This Winter

Ice and cold were supposed to be a thing of the past, global warming theorists insisted some years ago. But that hasn’t been true. The problem is that the natural factors clearly dominate, and the experts had forgotten all about them. Winters with snow and ice are just as likely as they ever were in the […]

New Paper Debunks Ad Hoc 'Explanation' That Antarctic Sea Ice Has Been Growing Since '80s Due To Human Activity

New Paper Debunks Ad Hoc ‘Explanation’ That Antarctic Sea Ice Has Been Growing Since ’80s Due To Human Activity

“In science and philosophy, ad hoc means the addition of extraneous hypotheses to a theory to save it from being falsified. Ad hoc hypotheses compensate for anomalies not anticipated by the theory in its unmodified form.  Scientists are often skeptical of scientific theories that rely on frequent, unsupported adjustments to sustain them. Ad hoc hypotheses […]

“Climate-Saving” Green Energies In Germany “Also Useless In November”!

The Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) here recently reminded readers of two things: 1) renewable energies are performing woefully and temperature trends for Germany are pretty much flat, meaning they do not even remotely resemble anything you’d expect from a rapidly warming globe. ================================================= A look at the “climate-rescuing” new energies By Helmut […]

Germany's Mean Temperature For November 0.5°C Colder Than Normal As Cold Grips Europe

Germany’s Mean Temperature For November 0.5°C Colder Than Normal As Cold Grips Europe

Cold weather is forecast to remain over much of Europe for the foreseeable future. The 15-day forecast map for temperature at kachelmannwetter.com here shows what’s in store for Europe. 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

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 […]
