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.

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'

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 […]

Already 285 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

A Growing Volume Of Evidence Undercuts ‘Consensus’ Science During the first 6 months of 2017, 285 scientific papers have already been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by […]

Almost 300 Graphs Undermine Claims Of Unprecedented, Global-Scale Modern Warmth

Almost 300 Graphs Undermine Claims Of Unprecedented, Global-Scale Modern Warmth

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 […]

15 New Papers: Scientists Abandoning Claims Of Dominant Man-Made Influence On Arctic Climate

Natural Forcing Of Arctic Climate  Increasingly Affirmed By Scientists Gajewski, 2015 Three years ago a cogent paper was published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature that was surprisingly candid in its rejection of the position that the substantial warming and sea ice reduction in the Arctic occurring since the late 1970s should be predominantly attributed […]

20 New Papers Affirm Modern Climate Is In Phase With Natural Variability

20 New Papers Affirm Modern Climate Is In Phase With Natural Variability

Natural Variability Dominates Climate  Last week, the newly published Gagné et al. (2017) paper received some attention  because the authors pointed out that Arctic sea ice grew substantially between 1950 and 1975, consistent with the in-phase cooling trend during that period. Gagné et al., 2017     “Updated observational datasets without climatological infilling show that there was […]
