Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year...Without CO2 Flux

Past Sea Levels Rose 4-6 Meters Per Century, Shorelines Retreated 40 Meters Per Year…Without CO2 Flux

New Paper: Modern Sea Levels Rising   20-30 Times Slower Than The Past Currently, sea levels are “believed to be” rising at a rate of 1.7-1.8 millimeters/year. This modern rate  –  just 0.17-0.18 of a meter per century – has remained relatively unchanged from the overall 20th century average, and there has been no statistically significant acceleration in […]

Scientists Expose Data Manipulation, 'Hide The Decline', And The Post-1940s Hockey Stick Temperature Myth

Scientists Expose Data Manipulation, ‘Hide The Decline’, And The Post-1940s Hockey Stick Temperature Myth

Why ‘Hide The Decline’? There Has Been No Net NH Warming Since The 1940s In the press release for a newly published and controversial  peer-reviewed scientific paper, Australian scientist Dr. Jennifer Marohasy unveiled one of climate science’s better-kept secrets. She and her colleagues are well aware that the post-1940s Northern Hemisphere (NH)  proxy evidence from […]

New Study Confirms Medieval Warm Period Was Indeed Global, And As Warm As Today

Here’s another blow to the global warming alarmist scientists, who have been claiming that the Medieval Warm Period was a local, North Atlantic phenomenon, and did not really exist globally. What follows is a report on yet another paper contradicting this now worn out claim. =================================== China: Warm phase of the 20th century was not […]

New Paper: At Least 80% Of The Warming Over The Last Century Due To 'Natural Phenomena'

New Paper: At Least 80% Of The Warming Over The Last Century Due To ‘Natural Phenomena’

“[E]ven if there had been no industrial revolution and burning of fossil fuels, there would have still been warming through the twentieth century – to at least 1980, and of almost 1°C.” – Abbot and Marohasy, 2017 For those who ascribe to the position that humans are dangerously altering the Earth’s climate, it has become almost […]

10,000 To 5,000 Years Ago, Global Sea Levels Were 3 Meters Higher, Temperatures 4-6° C Warmer

Source: press release for Myers et al., 2015 Sea Levels 2-4 m Higher Until ~5,000 Years Ago Imply Surface Temps Were At Least 5°C Warmer According to the accepted (IPCC) formula for calculating the contribution of ocean warming (thermal expansion) to sea level rise upon reaching equilibrium, every additional degrees Celsius of surface warmth yields […]

New Study By German Physicists Concludes We Can Expect Climate Cooling For Next 50 Years!

New Study By German Physicists Concludes We Can Expect Climate Cooling For Next 50 Years!

German physicists: “CO2 plays only minor role for global climate” In a just published study in The Open Atmospheric Science Journal here, German scientists Horst-Joachim Lüdecke and Carl-Otto Weiss have used a large number of temperature proxies worldwide to construct a global temperature mean over the last 2000 years, dubbed G7, in order to find out […]

Scientists Find At Least 75% Of The Earth Has Not Warmed In Recent Decades

Scientists Find At Least 75% Of The Earth Has Not Warmed In Recent Decades

 The ‘Real Proxy’ Temperature Record  Hints Near-Global Cooling Has Begun As a new scientific paper (Turney et al., 2017) indicates, the Southern Ocean encompasses 14% of the Earth’s surface.  And according to regional temperature measurements that have apparently not been subjected to warming “corrections” by data adjusters, the Southern Ocean has been cooling in recent […]

Climate Activists Switch From Blaming Humans For Too Little And Now Too Much Rainfall...And Call It 'Science'

Climate Activists Switch From Blaming Humans For Too Little And Now Too Much Rainfall…And Call It ‘Science’

Modern ‘Science’ Blames Humans For California Weather…If It’s Bad Image Source: Cook et al., 2010 In the present era of agenda-driven journalism, major news outlets often attempt to persuade readers that weather events occurring now have never happened before…and they are worsened by human-caused climate change. In 2015, Humans Caused Drought, Too Little Rainfall In California Global Warming Brought […]

Already 285 Scientific Papers Published In 2017 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

A Growing Volume Of Evidence Undercuts ‘Consensus’ Science During the first 6 months of 2017, 285 scientific papers have already been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by […]

Almost 300 Graphs Undermine Claims Of Unprecedented, Global-Scale Modern Warmth

Almost 300 Graphs Undermine Claims Of Unprecedented, Global-Scale Modern Warmth

Hundreds Of Scientific Papers Challenge ‘Global’ Warming Recently, an article citing over 80 graphs from scientific papers published in 2017 — and another 55 graphs from 2016  — established that modern “global” warming is not actually global in scale, and that today’s warmth is neither unprecedented or remarkable when considering the larger context of natural variability. Here, an additional […]

80 Graphs From 58 New (2017) Papers Invalidate Claims Of Unprecedented Global-Scale Modern Warming

Scientists Increasingly Discarding ‘Hockey Stick’ Temperature Graphs Now Updated: 300 Non-Hockey Stick Graphs “[W]hen it comes to disentangling natural variability from anthropogenically affected variability the vast majority of the instrumental record may be biased.”  — Büntgen et al., 2017 Last year there were at least 60 peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals demonstrating that Today’s Warming Isn’t […]

Another New Paper Traces Variations In Temperatures, Precipitation To Variations In Solar Activity

Scientists Ascribe Climate Changes To Solar Forcing – No CO2 Attribution In recent months, there have been dozens of papers published in the scientific literature ascribing variations in temperature and precipitation (climate) to corresponding variations in solar forcing. Another new paper, Zhang et al., 2017, has just been published online.  The nine scientists contributing to […]

Fake Climate Science On German ARD Television. Sea Ice Cover Indeed Saw Large Pre-Industrial Fluctuations

Inconvenient historical natural sea ice fluctuations By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) On April 29 German ARD public television presented a report on a Canadian sea ice reconstruction using coral algae growth. The report (in German) can be seen at the ARD-Mediathek in the Internet (begins at the 16:38 mark).

10 New Papers: Sea Levels 1 - 6 Meters Higher 4,000 - 6,000 Years Ago

10 New Papers: Sea Levels 1 – 6 Meters Higher 4,000 – 6,000 Years Ago

Sea Levels Meters Higher While CO2 Levels Were Below 300 ppm   Image Yoon et al., 2017 Before the advent of the industrial revolution in the late 18th to early 19th centuries, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations hovered around 280 parts per million (ppm). Within the last century, atmospheric CO2 concentrations have risen dramatically.  Just recently they […]

There Has Been No 'Global' Warming In The Southern Hemisphere, Equatorial Regions

There Has Been No ‘Global’ Warming In The Southern Hemisphere, Equatorial Regions

Half The Planet Has Not Cooperated With The ‘Global’ Warming Narrative According to overseers of the long-term instrumental temperature data, the Southern Hemisphere record is “mostly made up”.  This is due to an extremely limited number of available measurements both historically and even presently from the south pole to the equatorial regions. Below is an […]

50 Inverted Hockey Sticks - Scientists Find Earth Cools As CO2 Rises

50 Inverted Hockey Sticks – Scientists Find Earth Cools As CO2 Rises

Modern ‘Warmth’ A Brief Excursion From 8,000-Year (Continuing) Cooling Trend The scientific literature is replete with evidence that the geological record for the Holocene (the last 10,000 years) fails to support the concept that rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations cause ocean and land temperatures to rise. Actually, the scientific literature strongly suggests that the correlation between […]
