German Public Television Stuns Its Readers, Concedes Medieval Warm Period May Have Been 0.5°C Warmer Than Today!

German Public Television Stuns Its Readers, Concedes Medieval Warm Period May Have Been 0.5°C Warmer Than Today!

In Germany climate science used to be considered completely settled. Global temperatures had been pretty much steady for a thousand years before skyrocketing upwards as soon as man really started industrializing about 150 years ago, Germans were told again and again. But today Germany’s major media are beginning to realize that this view is perhaps quite naïve […]

German Scientists Show Natural Climate Cycles Dominated Over Last 7000 Years…Blaming Man Is “Witch-Hunting”

Another nail in the coffin of man-made extreme weather nonsense: ——————————— New study from the Geosciences Center Potsdam: There have been 18 flooding phases in upper Austria over the last 7000 years By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Tanslated, edited by P. Gosselin) The pattern in society today is clear to see. Whenever a […]

Analysis Of Entire Inventory Of Historical Data Clearly Points To One Conclusion: Natural Factors Are Dominant

Analysis Of Entire Inventory Of Historical Data Clearly Points To One Conclusion: Natural Factors Are Dominant

A History of Global Temperature By Ed Caryl We have somewhat reliable global scale land surface and sea surface temperature measurements since about 1880. We have lower troposphere satellite temperature measurements since 1979. We have ice core CO2 measurements and real atmospheric CO2 measurements that overlap and agree at the overlap for this time span. […]

Desperately Searching For Climate Warming Worldwide…None Found In China, Alaska, USA, Or Canada!

Desperately Searching For Climate Warming In China, Alaska And Canada By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) In mid October 2013 a temperature reconstruction of the last 250 years based on tree rings from northeast China appeared in the journal of Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology. Recorded were the values for […]

Climatology Sees One Of The Greatest Scientific Reversals Of All Time – The Rise And Fall Of The Hockey Stick Charts

The Rise And Fall Of The Hockey Stick Charts By Michael Krüger, Science Skeptical Blog (Translated, condensed, edited by P Gosselin) The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was created in November 1988 by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the World Organization for Meteorology (WMO). The main task of the UN Climate Framework  Convention […]

Data Show “Amazing Relationship” Between South German Flooding Frequency And Solar Activity

Data Show “Amazing Relationship” Between South German Flooding Frequency And Solar Activity

Hysterical media, politicians, activists and scientists (e.g. Mojib Latif) tried to put the blame for the German flooding earlier this month on man-made climate change. But a recent doctoral dissertation shows that flooding in Southern Germany is very strongly related to solar activity. No correlation is found with CO2.

Dice N’ Splice – Curve Designer Stefan Rahmstorf: “We Are Catapulting Ourselves Out Of The Holocene”!

At the SciLogs website, Stefan Rahmstorf of the über-alarmist Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research presents Part III of his Mann-hockey-stick-resurrection series. Here he explains to his German readers how the temperature really developed over the Holocene and why the 20th century is “unique”. To do this, Rahmstorf uses the findings of the already refuted […]

Back To The Penalty Box…Chinese Paleo-Climatolgists Slap Down High-Sticking Michael Mann!

Back To The Penalty Box…Chinese Paleo-Climatolgists Slap Down High-Sticking Michael Mann!

Saturday I posted about a recently published study by He YuXin et al, which happened to catch the watchful eye of Sebastian Lüning of kaltesonne.de/. Lüning comments on what the paper means for Michael Mann: ================================================= Medieval warmth at the northern Tibetan Plateau casts doubt on Michael Mann’s temperature map By Dr. Sebastian Lüning In […]

Tibetan Temperature Reconstruction Shows Medieval Warm Period Was Warmer Than Today!

Tibetan Temperature Reconstruction Shows Medieval Warm Period Was Warmer Than Today!

A team of scientists led by HE YuXin of the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Hong Kong examined two lake cores extracted from the Tibetan Plateau in order to reconstruct the past temperature development.

Study Shows Southwest Droughts Of The Past “Were More Severe, Persistent Than Any Of The Last 100 Years”!

Study Shows Southwest Droughts Of The Past “Were More Severe, Persistent Than Any Of The Last 100 Years”!

The U of A Science News website has an interesting report on precipitation reconstructions using tree rings. The reconstruction goes back some 470 years in the Southwest, covering most of Arizona, western New Mexico and parts of northern Mexico. Arizona sunset.

Leading International Geologist Peter Ziegler: “Sun Is Driving Climate, Not CO2.”

Leading International Geologist Peter Ziegler: “Sun Is Driving Climate, Not CO2.”

Dr. Hans Labohm writes at the Dutch Standaard that one of the world’s leading geologists, Peter Ziegler of Switzerland, recently made a presentation on the factors driving climate. It’s not CO2, he said.  Peter Ziegler. Photo from Ziegler family archives. GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version. Labohm writes at the Dutch Standaard blog […]

Clear Solar Impact On Climate Shown By New Study – German Meteorologist Calls Parrenin et al Paper “The Latest Gag”

Clear Solar Impact On Climate Shown By New Study – German Meteorologist Calls Parrenin et al Paper “The Latest Gag”

Is CO2 the main driver behind climate? Warmist scientists would have us believe it is. One recent European study claims that CO2 and temperature rose simultaneously at the end of the last ice age, implying CO2 is a real driver. However, one prominent German meteorologist dismissed it and bluntly called the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et […]
