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 […]

New Findings Show Sun, Natural Factors Linked To Sudden Climate Change, Famine, And European Social Collapse

A reader has brought my attention to more new papers. I haven’t found any mention of them at other sites like WUWT. Perhaps they aren’t able to get through the Gate of Willis. At any rate, just because I choose to bring them up, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I agree with them. I do […]

Journal Of Solar-Terrestial Physics Presents Findings: “Significant Relation” Between Sunspots And El Niño Southern Oscillation!

The more CO2-obsessed climate scientists deny the sun’s powerful role in driving climate, the more that other serious scientists are finding out that it is in fact truly The Dominant Player in climate. The Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestial Physics here has a recent paper where scientists have found a “significant relation” between sunspots and El […]

Evidence Of Water On Mars Supports Svensmark’s Theory Of Cosmic Radiation As A Major Climate Factor

Climate change on Mars – is it analogous to that on Earth? By Dr. Dietrich E. Koelle [Translated/edited by P Gosselin] Fig. 1: Structure of the Milky Way (Wikipedia, NASA/JPL-Caltech/R. Hurt) Drawing conclusions on the development of the Earth’s climate from climate change on Mars would be quite difficult because there is no concrete data from […]

Solar Analysis Shows That Coming 3 UK Winters Poised To Be Cold Ones - Strong Similarity To SC 12.

Solar Analysis Shows That Coming 3 UK Winters Poised To Be Cold Ones – Strong Similarity To SC 12.

So far we’ve been seeing lots of signs of a cold coming winter: birds migrating from Siberia to Britain weeks early, unusual early-autumn snowfalls across Europe, various reports warning of the worst winter in decades etc. In August, weather analyst Gavin Partridge put up one of his weather videos here. In it he looks at past […]

Scientists: No Need For "Economic Kamikaze Program In Paris" ...2°C Warming Won't Be Reached Even With IPCC Numbers!

Scientists: No Need For “Economic Kamikaze Program In Paris” …2°C Warming Won’t Be Reached Even With IPCC Numbers!

Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt and Frank Bosse present a guest post, reviewed by Nicolas Lewis, explaining why the IPCC’s claimed climate forcing by CO2 is overly inflated and that the world does not have to be rushing madly to eliminate CO2 emissions. Note: The above title is my own, and not of the authors. -PG ================================================ […]

Eight Recent Papers Overshadow CO2 Warming Hypothesis …Evidence Of Svensmark’s Solar Amplifier Theory Solidifies

Recently I posted a number of reports on the powerful correlation between solar activity cycles and historical climate change. Clearly the sun is a driver. The question that remains is what is the mechanism that drives climate. Recently there have been a number of papers showing Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark is on the right path […]

4! New! Papers! Show Sun’s Impact On Global Climate. German Scientists: Sun Is “A Major Climate Factor”

Personally I find it difficult to believe some people are unable to comprehend the sun’s impact on our climate, especially when something like 99 point-something-percent of the earth’s energy comes from the sun. Even a vegetable notices when a cloud blocks out the sun, when the sun sets, or when it doesn’t get very high above […]
