So Far November Global Satellite / 2m Temperature Measurements Show No New Record Will Be Set!

Schneefan (snow fan) looks at the global temperature here. ================================ After a globally warm October 2015 the unfalsified satellite data from UAH and RSS show that mid tropospheric temperature dropped significantly in the first 10 days of November: -0.5°K. After reaching high levels in October the daily recorded global mean temperature at 7500 m for […]

El Niño Appears To Have Turned The Corner As Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) Jumps Upwards

I’m short on time today, and so I’m reposting the latest on current El Nino – by German skeptic site wobleibtdieerderwaermung here. ====================================== For the first time in over two months the Southern Oscillation Index SOI rose 4.6 points and thus points to a possible normalization of the atmospheric pressure relationship and thus an eastward […]

ENSO Analysis: 2015/16 Europe Winter Has 78% Chance Of Being Normal Or Colder Than Normal!

There’s been a lot of talk in the Internet about this year’s coming winter with some sites warning it could be the coldest in 50 years, or extremely too warm. Predictions, predictably, have been all across the board. Last week German weather site donnerwetter.de here jumped into the fray and presented its 2015/16 winter outlook for […]

Sea Level Analyst: “Not Possible To Torture Coastal Tide-Gauge Data Into Yielding A Sea-Level Rise Anywhere Near 3.3 mm/yr”!

Sticky post Claims that sea level rise is 3.3 mm/year are looking increasingly like a grand hoax. David A. Burton runs the sea level rise resource site sealevel.info posts an analysis showing sea level rise is only half of what it is claimed to be. ============================ Sea Level Rise Only Matters At The Coasts By […]

Sea Level Rise Alarm Turned Off? NOAA: "Absolute Global Sea Level Rise Is Believed To Be 1.7 - 1.8 Millimeters/Year"!

Sea Level Rise Alarm Turned Off? NOAA: “Absolute Global Sea Level Rise Is Believed To Be 1.7 – 1.8 Millimeters/Year”!

A short but extremely interesting post today. Hat-tip: reader Stuart. It appears the NOAA also agrees that sea level rise is not happening any where near as fast as many among us would like to think it is. At its site here, it writes the following n(my emphasis): The graphs compare the 95% confidence intervals of […]

New Study On 20th Century Sea Level Rise Signals That IPCC 21st Century Projections May Be Grotesquely Overblown

New Study On 20th Century Sea Level Rise Signals That IPCC 21st Century Projections May Be Grotesquely Overblown

Germany’s University of Siegen issued a press release on a recent study conducted by climate scientists. It turns out that natural oceanic cycles indeed do play a far greater role on sea level fluctuations than first believed. Hat-tip: Die kalte Sonne. Therefore, because the factors were not correctly considered in the past, we can immediately […]

Study Results Showing Phytoplankton Coping Far Better Than Expected Embarrass Greenpeace!

Phytoplankton coping better than expected with ocean acidification By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof: Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated, edited by P Gosselin] Five years ago Greenpeace painted climate doom and gloom on the wall. Supposedly ocean acidification was posing a threat to the phytoplankton and thuswas a danger to the food supply for all sea life. In […]

NASA: Sahara Dust And “Below Average Sea Surface Temperatures” Putting The Brakes On Hurricanes

At the online Spiegel magazine here science journalist and geology major Axel Bojanowski features his “Photo of the Week”, which this week shows a dust storm blowing across the East Atlantic off the African Sahara. The above photo is provided by NASA Earth Observatory, taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite. […]

Joe Bastardi: "Heat Will Not Get Erased By Three Solar Cycles ...July 2015 Not The Warmest

Joe Bastardi: “Heat Will Not Get Erased By Three Solar Cycles …July 2015 Not The Warmest

Joe Bastardi at his Weatherbell Analytics presents an excellent Saturday Summary that looks back at earlier El Nino events. Today’s El Nino is being hyped and many are preparing to say that July 2015 will be among the warmest, if not the warmest, on record. Chart: NCEP However the veteran meteorologist tells us in the […]

Data Show No Danger To Pacific Atolls From Sea Level …”The Majority Have Enlarged”

Note: The NTZ site remains crippled due to WordPress upgrade from version 4.2.2 to 4.2.3. New posts can only be viewed through the NTZ homepage. Reader comments function is also disabled by the recent upgrade. Sorry. It’s very frustrating for me as well. As I’m not an IT guy, nor do I have time to devote […]

Surprise – No Sea Level Rise At Tanzanian Coast Last 4500 Years…Seychelles Last 10 Years!

Tanzania’s sea level over the past 4500 years likely succeeded today’s level. Sea level at the Seychelles stable over the past 10 years By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P. Gosselin) Global sea level is rising and rising  – and that has been so for the last 15,000 years. However there are […]

German Geologist: “Sea Level Rise Lagging Behind Projections” …No Detectable Acceleration!

Over the last couple of days at their Die kalte Sonne blog Geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and professor of chemistry Fritz Vahrenholt have focused their attention on sea level rise. On Monday they wrote a piece titled: “Sea level rise lagging behind expectations: Now only ‘data massaging’ helps“. In their post the two authors present […]

Max Planck Society Confirms Warming Pause! …Scrambles To Explain Widespread Model Failure

Max Planck Society: “Temperatures stagnant approximately since 1998, but at high level” By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated/edited by P. Gosselin] Attempting midterm predictions The Max-Planck Society publishes the magazine “Max Planck Forschung” on a regular basis. In its 1/2015 issue beginning on page 68 one finds the article: “…and now on the climate […]

German Scientists: Solar Cycle 24 On Track To Be 3rd All-Time Weakest …And McCarthy Paper Points To Tame CO2 Climate Sensitivity

The Sun in May 2015, and Atlantic Waves By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated, edited by P Gosselin] Our primary “fusion reactor” remains in a weak phase in its current solar cycle, number 24 since systematic observations began in the year 1749.

Rahmstorf’s “Fantasy” Of “A Weakening Gulf Stream” Gets Refuted Yet Again.

Norwegian University of Bergen: Gulf Stream Shows No Longterm Weakening Over Past 20 Years! By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt [Translated by P. Gosselin] Not long ago we asked German public radio Deutschlandfunk why they mentioned only the alarmist viewpoint of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in a report on the Gulf Stream […]

German Scientists Call Rahmstorf’s Selective Citing Of Literature “Embarrassing …Science-Ethically Very Unclean”

New Paper On Atolls: “There Has Been A 7.3% Increase In Net Island Area Over The Past Century”!

What else can be said about all the doom and gloom nonsense from UN scientists surrounding the atolls and sea level? A new paper that is just out should make them red with embarrassment. This new paper tells us that the atolls are doing just fine and are gaining in area! Read the paper’s abstract that […]

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: Today’s Weather Patterns Seen In The Past, Asks: “Has NCEP Suddenly Become A Denier?”

Most readers here know Joe Bastardi, the veteran meteorologist at Weatherbell who has a knack of getting his longer term seasonal forecasts correct far more often than not. In a reader comment he replies to warmists’ claims on ocean cycles, particularly to David Appell. I’ve upgraded his comment (with slight editing) as a post. Question for David […]

AMO And PDO Directly Affect The Weather, CO2 Does Not

AMO And PDO Directly Affect The Weather, CO2 Does Not

The Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) is defined as the variability of the North Atlantic sea surface temperature compared to the rest of the global ocean from 60°N to 60°S once trends are removed. The AMO high is usually seen off eastern Canada and north and east of Iceland. The AMO low has the pattern reversed. […]

Alarmist Potsdam Institute Concedes: “Natural Variability Underestimated”…”WE ARE CURRENTLY FACING A COOLING PERIOD”!

By Dennis Ambler and Pierre Gosselin Few institutes have been as adamant and dogmatic about man-made global warming as the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), headed by German climate doomsday professor, Herr Professor-Doktor Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber. German climate doomsday professor Hans Schellnhuber forced to postpone climate doomsday scenarios due to natural factors, but insists […]
