New Paper: Human Climate Forcing ‘Below Detection’ ... Deep Oceans Warm By ‘2°C Within 200 Years’ 100% Naturally

New Paper: Human Climate Forcing ‘Below Detection’ … Deep Oceans Warm By ‘2°C Within 200 Years’ 100% Naturally

Annotated graph from Rosenthal et al. (2013) illustrating the steep amplitude of natural variations in ocean heat It has long been acknowledged by scientists that significant changes in deep ocean heat content have occurred in the past in the absence of changes or forcing from CO2.  Stott et al. (2007), for example, conclude that deep […]

Since 1982, Temperature Records Show No Warming Other Than That Due To Natural El Niño Warmth-Inducing Events

Since 1982, Temperature Records Show No Warming Other Than That Due To Natural El Niño Warmth-Inducing Events

Over the course of years to decades, the heat contained in the ocean naturally undulates, with more or less upwelling cooler waters rising to the surface.  Naturally-occuring El Niño (wind current) events greatly influence the prevention of cooler waters from upwelling to the surface; this phenomenon, in turn, ultimately elicits an overall surface warming event […]

Scientific Studies Reveal No Correlation Between CO2 And Ocean Heat Content Variations For 99.975% Of The Last 10,000 Years

Scientific Studies Reveal No Correlation Between CO2 And Ocean Heat Content Variations For 99.975% Of The Last 10,000 Years

“The current eager acceptance of oceanic thermal lag as the ‘explanation’ as to why CO2 warming remains undetected, reemphasizes that the atmosphere cannot warm until the oceans do. The logical implication follows that most current climate models are lacking in relevance; they have not been constructed with ocean surface temperature as the fundamental variable. When […]

Scientists: 'Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends'

Scientists: ‘Climate Model Simulations That Include Anthropogenic Forcing Are Not Compatible With Observed Trends’

According to a recently published paper in the journal Science, (Cook et al., 2016, “Ocean forcing of glacier retreat in the western Antarctic Peninsula”), between 1945 and 2009 the mean ocean temperature warmed at depths of 150 to 400 meters for about 3/4ths of the waters surrounding the western Antarctic Peninsula (AP).  The other 1/4th […]

Michael Mann Stumbles Again: Scientific ‘Consensus’ Says ‘Global Warming’ Leads To Less Intense, Less Frequent Hurricanes

A few days ago, “Hurricane” Matthew weakened into a Category 1 storm by the time it made landfall in the U.S., which means its official title has been changed to “post-tropical storm Matthew“.  Because it lost so much intensity and could no longer be considered a real hurricane as it made landfall, this development has […]

No New Record? UAH Data Show 2016 Still Trails Behind 1998 Record Warm Year

"Dominating Factor"...Leading Warmist Climatologist Concedes Natural Oceanic Cycles Directly Related To Troposphere Temperature

“Dominating Factor”…Leading Warmist Climatologist Concedes Natural Oceanic Cycles Directly Related To Troposphere Temperature

Renowned climate scientist Prof. Mojib Latif used to often appears on television, radio and speeches all over Germany to spread the word of an impending human-made climate catastrophe. Hat-tip Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt One of the highlights of Latif’s many appearances was the CO2 “fingerprint” in the atmosphere, which according to Latif […]

30 Scientific Papers Reveal Inverse CO2 - Sea Level Signal:  As CO2 Rises, Sea Level Falls

30 Scientific Papers Reveal Inverse CO2 – Sea Level Signal: As CO2 Rises, Sea Level Falls

According to the IPCC (2013),  global sea levels rose by less than two-tenths of a meter (0.19 m) between 1901 and 2010.  Considering the scientific record of long-term sea level trends from locations across the globe, this small <0.2 m change in sea levels over the course of the last 110 years does not even […]

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 […]

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 […]
