Rash Of Weather Extremes In 1936 …Before 15 Billion “Hiroshima Bombs Worth Of Heat” Were Added To Our Climate!

We keep hearing from alarmists that if we sacrifice by giving up carbon based fuels and bring atmospheric CO2 concentrations below 350 ppm, then we will get nice weather with far fewer extremes – like in the 1930s. Reader Jimbo however shows that this is all bogus. Now he has compiled a list of extreme […]

Wild And Lethal Weather Extremes Gripped The Planet…80 Years Ago When Atmospheric CO2 Was Well Under 350 ppm!

Wild and crazy weather extremes really are nothing new. I got the following compilation from reader Jimbo: ================================ Hi Pierre, Please consider putting up the following as a post. It concerns 1935 bad weather events. It’s intended to put things into perspective for younger folks. Below is a small selection of newspaper headlines from 1935 […]

Climate Superstition: Professor Robert Devoy Defies IPCC’s Findings, Attributes Severe Weather To Humans!

Climate Superstition: Professor Robert Devoy Defies IPCC’s Findings, Attributes Severe Weather To Humans!

The Irish Examiner here reports that Robert Devoy, professor of physical geography at UCC, says the greater wind speeds and flooding in Ireland of the last few days are “what we would expect from a warming climate caused by the impact of humans”. However, he cites no substantial data to support that. In fact global data on […]

German Scientists: NOAA 2013 Hurricane Prediction Completely Missed The Barn…Not A Single Major Hurricane!

In The Models Only! Leading German Experts Find “No Statistical Increase In Storm Frequency Or Intensity”

In The Models Only! Leading German Experts Find “No Statistical Increase In Storm Frequency Or Intensity”

Now that North Sea storm “Xaver” is on its way out and the media hype begins to die down, the question of whether the storm was due to climate change is making the rounds. When Yolanda struck the Philippines early last month, the IPCC momentarily forgot its own science and hysterically blamed man-made CO2 for […]

Apocalyptic, Mega-Monster, Super-Killer North Sea Storm Brewing, Will Crush Northern Europe By End Of Week!

These are just some of the key headline words Europeans can expect to see and hear by Thursday and Friday. The media, climate activists, and reinsurers are already salivating massively. For sure the scientists at the PIK and Mojib Latif are already practicing their lines. They’re eagerly standing by their phones, ready for the media at […]

Data Show Cyclone Activity Depends On Temperature Difference Between Tropics And Poles – Dramatic Decrease With Warming

Data Show Cyclone Activity Depends On Temperature Difference Between Tropics And Poles – Dramatic Decrease With Warming

Is Cyclone Activity Increasing? By Ed Caryl In the aftermath of the sole very strong tropical cyclone we experienced this year, all the catastrophists have since piled on claiming it was all caused by a warming world. They conveniently forget that one of their claims is that the polar regions are warming faster than the […]

Observed Temperature Data Show No Signs Of Increasing Global Heat Waves Or Extremes

Can We Expect Extreme Weather? By Ed Caryl The latest rallying cry from the catastrophic AGW crowd is that we can expect more heat waves, roaming heat waves, popping up unexpectedly and unpredictably. We hear this from Kevin Trenberth here (and refuted by Willis Eschenbach here), and from the PIK here. What about this? Is […]
