New 'Consensus' Science: HALF Of 1979-Present Arctic Warming & Ice Loss Is Natural

New ‘Consensus’ Science: HALF Of 1979-Present Arctic Warming & Ice Loss Is Natural

Climate Scientists Recant Only 50% Of Recent Arctic Warming & Sea Ice Loss Is Human-Caused Image Source: Climate4you The Arctic region was the largest contributor to the positive slope in global temperatures in recent decades. Consequently, the anomalously rapid warming in the Arctic region (that occurred prior to 2005) has been weighted more heavily in […]

Climatic Cycles Globally…Spitzbergen Weather Records Show It Was Just As Warm 70 Years Ago!

Hey, we just saw something similar from Japan. =============================================== On Spitzbergen it was as warm 70 years ago as it is today By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated by P Gosselin) Newspapers like to write about heat and melt records in the Arctic, which supposedly had never happened before. That really […]

“Fails The Test Of Science”: Another Rahmstorf/Mann Horror Climate Scenario Gets Assigned To The Dustbin

PIK alarm story fails the test of science: Jet Stream will also meander as usual in the future By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated by P Gosselin) Almost one year ago the Potsdam PIK Institute put out a press release, which warned of stalling Jet Stream waves. Due to man-made […]

A Teetering Consensus: 97 New Papers Amassed In 2018 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

The Science Unsettles Image Source: Robertson and Chilingar, 2017 In just the first 8 weeks of 2018,  97 scientific papers have been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly […]

20 New Papers Crush Claims Of A Man-Made Link To Arctic Climate Change, Glacier Retreat, Sea Ice

20 New Papers Crush Claims Of A Man-Made Link To Arctic Climate Change, Glacier Retreat, Sea Ice

Anthropogenic Influence On Arctic Climate ‘Too Small To Be Detected’ Source: Haine, 2016 The evidence compiled in scientific papers continues to rapidly accumulate. An anthropogenic signal in the regional Arctic climate is still too small to be detected. Temperature, glacier melt, and sea ice changes are all well within the range of natural variation for the […]

Ph.D. Climate Scientist: Modern Warming Natural...CO2 Changes Affect Climate 'Weakly At Most'

Ph.D. Climate Scientist: Modern Warming Natural…CO2 Changes Affect Climate ‘Weakly At Most’

New Paper Spurns Anthropogenic CO2 Warming, Unveils Natural Explanation For Climate Change University of California (Santa Cruz) Professor W. Jackson Davis (Ph.D.), President of the Environmental Studies Institute, has published a new paper with colleagues in the journal Climate that thoroughly undermines the conceptualization of a dominant role for anthropogenic CO2 in the global warming since 1850. Davis […]

2 New Papers: Models 'Severely Flawed', Temp Changes Largely Natural, CO2 Influence 'Half' Of IPCC Claims

2 New Papers: Models ‘Severely Flawed’, Temp Changes Largely Natural, CO2 Influence ‘Half’ Of IPCC Claims

Atmospheric Scientists Slam Fundamentals of the Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory Scafetta et al., 2017    Natural climate variability, part 1: Observations versus the modeled predictions [T]he AGWT [Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory] was globally advocated by the IPCC in 2001 because it appeared to be supported by the ‘infamous’ Hockey Stick temperature reconstructions by Mann et al.

Now It's "Global Stilling" ...Researchers Amazed: Global Wind Speeds Have SLOWED DOWN Since 1960s!

Now It’s “Global Stilling” …Researchers Amazed: Global Wind Speeds Have SLOWED DOWN Since 1960s!

German public radio DLF here  reports an astonishing finding by scientists: Global wind speeds globally are slowing down! A number of European scientist groups and a European science magazine of the EU Commission just reported on this. Global wind speeds are slowing down, European researchers believe. Image: anemometer, NOAA public domain photo. According to the […]

28 New Papers: Solar, Ocean Cycles Modulate Rainfall Trends

28 New Papers: Solar, Ocean Cycles Modulate Rainfall Trends

A Human Influence On Precipitation ‘Has Yet To Be Detected’ “Climate model output suggests decreasing rainfall as a consequence of anthropogenic greenhouse gas radiative forcing.” “[I]f anthropogenic forcing has impacted the [regional rainfall pattern], the signal has yet to be detected above the level of natural climate variability.” – Lachniet et al., 2017 According to […]

New Paper: 'Extremely High' TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert 'Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers'

New Paper: ‘Extremely High’ TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert ‘Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers’

Scientists Rebuke Claims Of Human Control Over Glacier Mass Balance “Natural climate variability still emerges as the key deciding element governing the Himalayan glacier mass balances.” – Shekhar et al., 2017 Yet another new paper has challenged to IPCC-endorsed conclusion that the Himalayan glaciers are melting rapidly due to anthropogenic climate change, and that these […]

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year...Without CO2 Flux

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year…Without CO2 Flux

New Paper: Modern Sea Levels Rising   20-30 Times Slower Than The Past Currently, sea levels are “believed to be” rising at a rate of 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year. This modern rate  –  just 0.17-0.18 of a meter per century – has remained relatively unchanged from the overall 20th century average, and there has been no statistically significant acceleration in […]

New Paper: At Least 80% Of The Warming Over The Last Century Due To ‘Natural Phenomena’

“[E]ven if there had been no industrial revolution and burning of fossil fuels, there would have still been warming through the twentieth century – to at least 1980, and of almost 1°C.” – Abbot and Marohasy, 2017 For those who ascribe to the position that humans are dangerously altering the Earth’s climate, it has become almost […]

Russian Scientists Find ‘Appreciable Contribution’ From Natural Variability, Solar Forcing To Recent Warming

Russian Scientists Find ‘Appreciable Contribution’ From Natural Variability, Solar Forcing To Recent Warming

Most Of Warming Trend Since 1980s Is Naturally Driven, Not CO2-Driven According to a new statistical analysis of centennial-scale surface temperature changes, half (0.5 °C) of the warming trend over the last 135 years (0.95 °C) can be explained by both (a) the existence of commonly-occurring natural (non-anthropogenic) variations of temperature that can reach the […]

Hundreds Of Scientific Papers Challenge ‘Global’ Warming Recently, an article citing over 80 graphs from scientific papers published in 2017 — and another 55 graphs from 2016  — established that modern “global” warming is not actually global in scale, and that today’s warmth is neither unprecedented or remarkable when considering the larger context of natural variability. Here, an additional […]

Natural Factors, Not CO2, Driving Switzerland’s Surprising Snow (Non)Trends

Strongly fluctuating snow cover in Switzerland appears to be coupled to ocean cycles By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German text translated/edited by P Gosselin) For those who love snow, there are supposedly dark clouds on the horizon. Snow is becoming less and less. Never in the past has snow been as seldom […]

Robust Natural Variability Affirmed In Global Sea Level Rise Rates - No Correlation With CO2 Forcing

Robust Natural Variability Affirmed In Global Sea Level Rise Rates – No Correlation With CO2 Forcing

 Tide Gauge Evidence: Sea Levels  Rose Faster Before 1950 Than Since In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that tide gauge measurements of sea level rise often do not align with climate model expectations. The models are predicated on the assumption that anthropogenic CO2 emissions, which have risen explosively since about 1950, are the drivers of modern […]
