Senator George Brandis Blasts Climate Cultists: “Shocked By The Sheer Authoritarianism…Anti-Intellectualism”

“The state should never be the arbiter of what people can think.” In Australia we find a true warrior of free speech in Queensland Senator George Brandis, who has come out blasting what he sees as the “sheer authoritarianism” rampant in the global climate change movement, where anyone who challenges the science is labeled a despicable […]

IPCC Ignores Its Own Data…Attempts To Incite Global Green Coup d’Etat Led By Alarmist Scientists

The IPCC’s tone, amplified by the media, speaks volumes: With its latest report, the UN organization is attempting to incite and lead a global coup d’état – with the main focus on Europe and North America. Predictably the media in Germany are reporting today on the release of the IPCC’s Working Group II report and the […]

Spiegel: IPCC-Backpedal On Species Extinction…”Astonishingly Great Doubt Over Earlier Predictions…Acute Lack Of Data”

Alarmists like claiming that a bit of global warming can lead to mass-scale species extinctions and even threatens the very survival of human civilization. It’s one of the media’s favorite scare stories after sea level rise and super storms. It turns out that the IPCC is now having “great doubts” about that. Yet another scare-story gets debunked! […]

Decarbonization Can Only Have Marginal Effects On Future Climate At Best. Ultra-High Price For Negligible Results

Decarbonization Can Only Have Marginal Effects On Future Climate At Best. Ultra-High Price For Negligible Results

By Ed Hoskins This short illustrated essay questions government efforts to combat global warming and climate change from three points of view: 1. The influence of CO2 on temperature 2. Decarbonisation outcomes 3. Politics This essay examines quantifiable and hopefully non-contentious aspects of the question. 1. Influence of carbon dioxide CO2 on temperature The temperature-increasing capacity of […]

Uncovered 16th Century Hallucinatory Images Suggest That Today’s Climate Science Is Nothing But A Persistent Human Mental Disorder

Uncovered 16th Century Hallucinatory Images Suggest That Today’s Climate Science Is Nothing But A Persistent Human Mental Disorder

Fire in the sky, torrential rains, droughts and Biblical floods – all supposedly brought on by the sins and wickedness of man. Is it really a surprise we are hearing it all once again today? Hail storm in Dordrecht, Holland, May 17, 1552. Image: Taschen Verlag, amazon.de. The online Spiegel today has a report on […]

Scientists React Sharply To Copernicus Publishing Censorship Of Alternative Scientific Explanations: “Do You Realize What You Have Done?”

Scientists React Sharply To Copernicus Publishing Censorship Of Alternative Scientific Explanations: “Do You Realize What You Have Done?”

What follows are two reactions (see below) to Copernicus Publications director Martin Rasmussen, who cancelled an entire journal because scientists published a scientific alternative to IPCC climate science. Ironically, Copernicus’s publications received similar treatment in the 1600s under the Inquisition, see here Inquisition-Copernicus! UPDATE: The controversy takes a turn, Anthony Watts: wattsupwiththat.com/copernicus-fiasco-predictable-preventable/ Jo Nova responds: joannenova.com.au/not-done-by-peer-or-pal-review-but-by-evidence/ Other […]

“97%” Of The Climate Scientists Have Been Wrong For 16 Years – But We Should Still Listen To Them?

Today I would like to debunk the claim that we have to act now because there’s a “97% consensus”. In debates I keep hearing the claim that “97% of scientists agree” on global warming science and thus, with such an overwhelming consensus, taking action is a no-brainer. For example Hollywood actor and college dropout George Clooney recently parroted […]

Marc Morano Calls Global Warming Science ‘Unscientific Claptrap’, ‘Medieval Witchcraft’, ‘Pagan Culture’

Marc Morano Calls Global Warming Science ‘Unscientific Claptrap’, ‘Medieval Witchcraft’, ‘Pagan Culture’

The skeptics haven’t had this much fun for as long as I can recall. Global warming scientists getting trapped in ice, North America gripped by a record-breaking cold snap, activist climate scientists blaming cold on warming Derek Hunter interviews outspoken climate science critic Marc Morano at WBAL 1090, click on the following link: www.wbal.com/marc-morano Marc […]

German Global Analysis: 2013 Was A Debacle For The Promoters Of Anthropogenic Global Warming

Veteran German journalist Ulli Kulke of Die Welt writes a summary of 2013 in terms of the global warming debate at his blog donnerunddoria.welt.de. He concludes: “Once again evidence has mounted that we are slowly but surely departing from the view of a global apocalypse.” On 2013 global temperature, Kulke writes: We will hear that 2013 […]

Leading Expert Modeler Tells Why Climate Models Hardly Better Than Hocus Pocus: “Welcome To Wonderland”!

If you still don’t believe climate models cannot be trusted to predict the future, then watch the following video of a presentation made with humor added by leading expert modeler Prof. Christopher Essex earlier this year. Absolutely worth viewing! Hat-tip: DirkH On scientific consensus Essex quotes a cartoon: “Then we are agreed nine to one that we […]

Top Swedish Climate Scientist Also Confirms No Sea Level Acceleration…Desperate Pachauri Insisting No Acceleration “Is An Acceleration”!

My last post on sea level rise here led to Swedish blog site Stockholms Initiativet to post on the subject as well. That post in turn sparked a reader comment from top Swedish climate scientist Lennart Bengtsson, translated in English (my emphasis): Hi We now have satellite measurements for 20 years which indicate a steady rise of about […]

IPCC Finds The Important Natural Climate Driver – Solar Surface Radiation Intensity – But Then Ignores It!

New IPCC report discovers the important climate factor…and ignores it! By D. E. Koelle According to its own statutes, the IPCC is mainly responsible for anthropogenic climate change – and much less so for natural climate change, which has been around since the Earth first appeared. That could very well be the reason why the […]

Europe Climate Policy Blows Engine…”Giant Failure” … Scientists “Failed Tricking Their Way Past Democracy” … Mood Of Resignation

Good news! This is about one of the most damning pieces on the European climate movement I’ve read all year, and that from Germany’s equivalent of the Washington Post. An atmosphere of resignation is truly sweeping through Germany’s climate movement. Flagship media are waking up. We’re winning! “Failed tricking their way past democracy” The Frankfurter […]

Flagship FAZ’s Damning Book Review: Today’s Climate Hysteria Resembles Witch Hunts Of The Dark Ages

Perhaps some leading opinion-shapers in Germany have become aghast at the hysterical and hyper-irrational reaction coming from “climate scientists” in the wake of typhoon Yolanda, a single, destructive storm supposedly brewed by the misdeeds of darker forces, e.g. the 90 top carbon emitters of the world. Despite the progress science and technology we’ve seen since the […]

Swiss Journalist: Warmists Frustrated By Lack Of Public Interest, “Arguments Are Becoming More Adventurous”

Swiss Journalist: Warmists Frustrated By Lack Of Public Interest, “Arguments Are Becoming More Adventurous”

Swiss veteran journalist Alex Reichmuth at the online Weltwoche here writes that despite the lack of warming over past 15 years, recovering Arctic sea ice, and slowdown in sea level rise, “the warners of climate catastrophe are not impressed. Their arguments are getting more adventurous”. This especially in the wake of typhoon Yolanda. Swiss journalist Alex […]
