Geologists: No Link Between Climate Warming And Rock Slides in European Alps!

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailClimate alarmists rush to blame every natural disaster on global warming. Recently they blamed a massive rock slide in Switzerland on a warming planet. Yet, geologists say there’s no link. Hat-tip: Die kalte Sonne. Last year, August, 2017, a massive rockslide occurred on the north flank of the Piz Cengalo (3369 m) in the Swiss […]

Scientists Now Assert Natural Mechanisms Have Driven The Recent Retreat Of The Greenland Ice Sheet

Scientists Now Assert Natural Mechanisms Have Driven The Recent Retreat Of The Greenland Ice Sheet

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailScientists are increasingly concluding that changes in low level cloud cover, not CO2, are what govern the surface radiation budget in the polar regions, driving and determining the retreat of the ice sheets.  Image Source: https://www.nature.com/articles/nclimate3363 It is considered “established science” that  “the greenhouse effect of clouds may be larger than that resulting from a hundredfold […]

Germans Like Talking "Climate Protection", Yet Very Few Willing To Walk It

Germans Like Talking “Climate Protection”, Yet Very Few Willing To Walk It

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailToday I have an anecdote or two about climate protection and the real willingness among Germans to do it. Over the end of last week and last weekend I was out on a 4-day trek in the Bavarian Alps, one that took me (by foot) to the top of Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze (2962 m) […]

As Karakorum Glacier Stability Puzzles Global Warming Experts, The Scientific Excuses Start To Fly

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailAwhile back a number of scientists hopped on the bandwagon claim that the Himalayan glaciers would be gone by the year 2030. That claim was quickly exposed as being preposterous and so the red-faced scientists backed off and said they had in fact meant the year 2300. Today that figure as well is also looking […]
