There’s No Observational, Physical Evidence That CO2 Heats Water

In examining the Skeptical Science (SkS) blog essay “How Increasing Carbon Dioxide Heats the Ocean“  written by Rob Painting (an “environmentalist, scuba diver, spearfisherman, kayaker and former police officer” who has “researched climate science, in an amateur capacity, for 4 years” according to his website bio), we learn that (A) the Sun heats the surface […]

Deeply Cold North Atlantic, Weak Sun Could Lead To “Big Freeze” 2016/17 Winter …Like 1962/63!

German skeptic site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de writes here on the upcoming Europe fall/winter and the unfavorable solar situation. What follows are some excerpts. ==================================== Cold North Atlantic – weak sun: Icy 100-year winter 2016/17 like 1962/63? In the first months of 2016, the North Atlantic has been significantly colder that the comparable El Niño year of 1998, and […]

35 New Scientific Publications Confirm Ocean Cycles, Sun Are Main Climate Drivers

While news journalists and internet bloggers are busy headlining scary stories invoking the presumed causal link between anthropogenic CO2 emissions and floods and droughts and global warming, robust scientific evidence of naturally-forced climate change has continued to rapidly accumulate. There is a claimed scientific “consensus” that climate changes in recent decades are only weakly influenced […]

Solar Cycle 24 Continues To Be Weakest In Close To 200 Years, Climate Models Overstate CO2

The sun in July 2016, and the AMO By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Our sole relevant source of energy at the center of our solar system was quieter than normal in July for our current solar cycle (SC) 24. The entire cycle so far has only been 56% as active […]

German Scientists Say It’s “Game Over” For “Potsdam Climate Alarm Factory”

At their “Die kalte Sonne” site, geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and chemist Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt write that Stefan Rahmstorf of the alarmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact research has had to watch another one of his alarmist claims go down in flames. ========================================= Game over: Dutch scientists refute Rahmstorf’s Gulf Stream alarm story By Dr. […]

4 New Papers: Anthropogenic Signal Not Detectable in Sea Level Rise By Kenneth Richard Photo: By Tiago Fioreze (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0) or GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html)], via Wikimedia Commons It is widely assumed that sea levels have been rising in recent decades largely in response to anthropogenic global warming. However, due to the inherently large […]

El Niño 2016 Now History… “La Niña Coming: The Earth Is Cooling”

La Niña is coming: the Earth is cooling! By Schneefan. (Translated and condensed by P. Gosselin) The warming El Niño weather phenomenon has been history since June 2016. The cool La Niña started in mid July 2016. The daily anomalies in sea surface temperatures (SSTA) in the main Niño region 3.4 are now updated. In mid […]

Another Doomsday Climate Prediction Gets Postponed …Effect On Gulf Stream “Smaller Than Expected”

Germany’s Geomar Research Center recently published a press release (see below) concerning the latest on the Gulf Stream. Hat-tip: DkS. Some leading scientists have claimed that melting Greenland glaciers due to “man-made global warming” will lead to a disruption of the Gulf Stream and cause the North Atlantic region’s climate to change dramatically. However, the […]

Meteorologist Bastardi: S. Hemisphere Surface Temps "Really Tanking" As Globe Cools

Meteorologist Bastardi: S. Hemisphere Surface Temps “Really Tanking” As Globe Cools

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi tweeted at Twitter the latest surface temperarture developments. I posted on this here yesterday. Joe tweeted the following chart by Dr. Ryan Maue: It shows how the surface temperature for the southern hemisphere is well into the cooler-than-normal territory, now close to a full degree Kelvin cooler than April’s peak. The black […]

Powerful Natural Oceanic Factor Confirmed ….Global Surface Temperatures Continue Their Fall!

Schneefan at his site here writes about the unusually wet weather Europe has been experiencing lately. This has to be upsetting to global climate modelers and scientists, who years ago claimed Europe would have to expect hot, dry summers involving severe periods of droughts. That prediction has turned out to be totally wrong. The very […]

Alarmist "Real Climate" Scientist Stefan Rahmstorf's "Bitter Defeat" As Theory Gets Falsified

Alarmist “Real Climate” Scientist Stefan Rahmstorf’s “Bitter Defeat” As Theory Gets Falsified

Dr. Sebastian Lüning writes at the Die kalte Sonne site that alarmist climate scientist Stefan Rahmstorf has been shown to be wrong with his idea of a weakening Atlantic Current. It turns out that natural factors are dominating. Image: NASA (public domain) ================================================ Bitter defeat for Stefan Rahmstorf: Weakening of the Atlantic Current from 2004 […]

Global Satellite Temperature Plummets As Surface Cooling Makes Way Into Lower Troposphere

German meteorological site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de here presents the latest developments on surface temperatures. Today I’m focused on the part dealing with the rapidly declining global temperature (TLT). ===================================================== Cold June spell about to hit Europe – more heavy summer rains in 2016 will lead to more flooding. By Schneefan (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) The current […]

Low Solar Activity And Oncoming La Niña: “Only A Question Of Months Before Pause Resumes”?

Snowfan at wobleibtdieerderwärmung.de features a spotless sun and quite possibly the start of cooling now that the planet is well past the peak of the recent El Niño event. What follows are some excerpts, with some editing to shorten the text to save a little time. ============================ The sun goes on strike: First spotless day […]

Veteran Meteorologist Forecasts "Epic Cold Temperatures" Over 2025 - 2060, Slowing Sea level Rise

Veteran Meteorologist Forecasts “Epic Cold Temperatures” Over 2025 – 2060, Slowing Sea level Rise

Sea Level Prediction By David Dilley – Global Weather Oscillations As many are familiar, the warm peak of the interglacial cycle occurred about 7 thousand years ago, with progressively cooler 1,500 year warming cycles since then as the earth trends toward the next long-term glacial period. Figure 1: Temperature of the Holocene Period. Because the […]

Global Cool-Down In The Works …Latest U.S. Scripps Institute Data Indicate Super-Charged La Niña!

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi at Twitter posted a chart from Scripps Oceanography Institute, which does put out some excellent work despite a fair amount climate science activism from a few of its scientists. According to the Weatherbell meteorologist, Scripps has forecast a La Niña under -2.0 over five consecutive month, as the following chart shows: While […]

North Atlantic Heat Content Plunges… Meteorologist Warns Of “Serious Implications” On US Climate, Sea Ice!

Paul Dorian of the excellent weather science site Vencore Weather here brings us up to date on the latest on one of the most powerful natural cycles driving our North Atlantic climate: North Atlantic sea surface temperature (SST) cycles. Here I’ll sum up the main points. Of course do read the entire post at Vencore for all […]

Today we will focus on the ocean cycle part of his post. ==================================== The oceans (SST) have cooled surprisingly over January to February 2016. While during other El Niño events like in 2015/16 led to a time-delayed warming of the Earth’s atmosphere – […]

Huge NOAA Correction! 2016 Likely Will Not Even Be Close To Setting New Temperature Record As La Niña Kicks In

NOAA/CFSv2 strongly corrects ENSO forecast Schneefan at German climate science site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de writes here that the NOAA’s ENSO model CFSv2 saw considerable deficiency with its recent forecasting, which not long ago foresaw ongoing global warming El Niño conditions for 2016. What follows is the BOM Climate Model Summary from 16 March 2016 with the NOAA/CFSv2 […]
