Germany Experts Revise (Junk) Model Projections For Summer Precipitation After String Of Failures

Since the Met Office’s infamous prediction of “barbecue summers” and snowless winters, Germany’s “climate experts” too have made some awfully embarrassing and sorrowfully wrong model projections. For example they too predicted that Central Europe’s winters would become snowless and summers would be more like the 2003 summer: long stretches of heat and drought conditions. However, […]

Climate Activists Switch From Blaming Humans For Too Little And Now Too Much Rainfall...And Call It 'Science'

Climate Activists Switch From Blaming Humans For Too Little And Now Too Much Rainfall…And Call It ‘Science’

Modern ‘Science’ Blames Humans For California Weather…If It’s Bad Image Source: Cook et al., 2010 In the present era of agenda-driven journalism, major news outlets often attempt to persuade readers that weather events occurring now have never happened before…and they are worsened by human-caused climate change. In 2015, Humans Caused Drought, Too Little Rainfall In California Global Warming Brought […]

Meteorologist: US Southwest "Permanent" Drought Totally Gone! ...US "Now As Good As It Gets"!

Meteorologist: US Southwest “Permanent” Drought Totally Gone! …US “Now As Good As It Gets”!

What follows is another example climate-scare prediction turned folly. The NOAA’s and the University of Nebraska (Lincoln) National Drought Mitigation Center’s (NDMC) US drought monitor map that follows now shows extraordinarily little drought conditions across the USA, despite earlier predictions of permanent drought and misery over vast regions. Meteorologist Paul Dorian of vencoreweather.com here in […]

Winter Continues To Plague US In April ...Also Data Show February Getting Colder

Winter Continues To Plague US In April …Also Data Show February Getting Colder

Winter in the US refuses to yield as snow falls in the Rockies and in New England. More is on the way. April Fools on global warming. Snow blankets parts of New England on April 1st.

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi Calls Claims Weather Events Are Sign Of Climate Change "Looney Bin"

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi Calls Claims Weather Events Are Sign Of Climate Change “Looney Bin”

At his most recent Weekend Summary at Weatherbell Analytics, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi looks at recent North American weather events, for example the warm poles (where very few weather stations exist) and the warm North American February. Arctic sea ice recovers Soon after global warming alarmists hollered that the Arctic was in collapse, the conditions there have […]

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

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 […]

Europe's Descent Into Climate "Catastrophe Of Biblical Proportions" ...200 Years Ago In 1816!

Europe’s Descent Into Climate “Catastrophe Of Biblical Proportions” …200 Years Ago In 1816!

The German Historical Museum published at its website a fascinating account of one of the continent’s worst disasters. What follows are some excerpts. You can read the whole account by clicking on the link. It shows that bad weather has nothing to do with trace gas CO2 and “climate catastrophe” is nothing new. Hat-tip: Gerti […]

Max Planck Institute (Model Calculations): Sahel Is Greening (Due To Human Activity)!

What follows is another example of climate science making up a theory to fit an observation. Of course, most of us suspect that natural cycles are what’s really at play here. ============================================================ Warmer Mediterranean turns the Sahel green Anthropogenic climate change contributes to fanning of the West African monsoon by moisture from the Mediterranean Climate […]

Climate Change Bringing Welcome Relief To Parts Of Africa!

One aspect of climate change propaganda is the claim that it’s good for everything that is bad, and bad for everything that is good. Of course that claim is preposterous because climate change will bring benefits and relief to places that have long been climatically stressed. Already the Sahara region has greened up significantly over […]

Tragedy Of Consensus …”Climate Experts” Obsessed With CO2, Ignored Remaining Universe Of Factors

High profile German food chemist Udo Pollmer here at German public radio brings the following video to our attention. In the video biologist and public speaker Allan Savory tells an audience how climate change and desertification has a lot more to do with the elimination of roaming herd animals over grasslands and vegetated areas over the […]

Clinton Shuns Visit To Louisiana Flood Zone… Too Frail For The Heat And Humidity?

Too frail? Has Hillary Clinton shunned a visit to Louisiana because getting out and visiting flood victims would require her to spend extended time outside her fossil-fuel, air-conditioned comfort zone? Hillary Clinton’s suspected major health issues refuse to go away as a political issue in this year’s election. The latest here, here and here. Though claims that she […]
