That’s an impressive record and is 0.8°C (!) warmer than […]

Claimed 3.2 Millimeters Per Year Sea Level Rise Seriously Challenged By Recently Published Scientific Papers!

Challenged: 3.2 mm/year sea level rise since 1993 By guest author Kenneth Richard Source data studies indicate recent only 0.8 – 1.6 mm/year sea level rise. According to the IPCC (2013), sea levels rose at a rate of 1.7 mm/year (6.7 inches per century) for the 1901 to 2010 period, but 3.2 mm/year (12.6 inches per century) […]

The MISSING COLD …Scripps Institute Now Projects Major, Powerful La Niña To Surface Late This Year

Yesterday I posted on how weather models have been forecasting a bitter cold mid March for much of Europe. This has now been confirmed by Joe Bastardi at his latest Saturday Summary here beginning at about 3 minutes into the report. Not only does the GFS show bitter cold for mid March taking hold across […]

Andes Have Seen No Warming Over The Past 65 Years! Powerful Natural PDO Cycle Dominates

No warming in Andes Mountains since 1950 By Dr.Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (German translated by P Gosselin) The unpopular hiatus just keeps coming up. But climate activists are remaining defiant and continue to deny it exists. They continue to claim that temperature is rising. Yet, the scientific community has long since accepted the pause and […]

Solar Report January 2016 …Current Solar Cycle Quietest In Almost 200 Years As “Triple Whammy” Approaches!

The Sun in January 2016! By Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) The largest mass of our solar system (99.8% of the total mass) was also rather quiet in January. The determined solar sunspot number (SSN) was 56.6, which is 71% of the mean this far into the period, calculated using […]

Two German Scientists Say GISS Has "Squandered Much Credibility" ...Playing A "Shady Role"

Two German Scientists Say GISS Has “Squandered Much Credibility” …Playing A “Shady Role”

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Photo: Vahrenholt/Lüning; Source: DkS The GISS-Institute of NASA is playing a shady role in the climate debate. For years it was directed by creedal climate activist James Hansen, and has since squandered much credibility. Now his years-long colleague Gavin Schmidt is at the […]

Tremendous Cooling Of Northern Hemisphere Sea Surface Temperatures ...Sharp Spell Of Global Cooling Ahead?

Tremendous Cooling Of Northern Hemisphere Sea Surface Temperatures …Sharp Spell Of Global Cooling Ahead?

Over the past months we’ve witnessed a powerful El Niño, a Pacific oceanic phase that brings warm sea surface temperatures along the equatorial Pacific. This El Niño has made 2015 global temperatures among the highest on the satellite record. But not only has the equatorial surface Pacific been warm, so has a vast part of […]

The Super-Collapsing El Niño! …NCEP CFSv2 N. Hemisphere Surface Temps Plummet 1°C In A Single Week!

The following is the English version of a post appearing at the German “wobleibtdieglobaleerwaermung?” (Where’s the global warming). The El current El Niño is in a tailspin. ================================== Global temperatures plummet in just a single week – NH one degree colder By Schneefan After the global temperature anomaly reached a peak in early December, 2015, […]

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

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”!

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.
