As Warming Pause Extends To 18 Years, Climate Debate Intensifies. J.E. Solheim: “Cooler Climate” In 21st Century!

Forget all the claims the science is settled, as some smearing activists-in-a hurry are begging us to believe. The fact is that the debate is just getting started and that the climate issue is very much undecided. The fact that warming has not occurred in 18 years, Antarctic sea ice is at record high levels, and that […]

Why Does The Solar Cycle NOT Show Up In Climate Data?

Why Does The Solar Cycle NOT Show Up In Climate Data?

By Ed Caryl Several researchers have noted that the 11-year solar cycle does not show up in temperature or precipitation data. Most recently, Dr. David Evans has introduced his “notch filter” answer to the problem. I think the answer is much simpler. The solar influence on earth has several components. The Total Solar Insolation (TSI), […]

Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG): “Solar Doldrums Of The Last Years Led To A Cooling Of The Earth’s Surface

German Physical Society: Solar doldrums of the last years led to a cooling of the Earth’s surface By Fritz Vahrenholt and Sebastian Lüning (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) The Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG), in English: The German Physical Society, is wringing its hands over the sustainability of the climate catastrophe. After all, hundreds of physicist jobs are in […]

The Real Motivation Behind PRP Journal Shutdown Exposed: It Challenged IPCC Science!

The original motivation behind Copernicus Publishing director Martin Rasmussen’s decision to shut down the new journal Pattern Recognition Physics (see here, here and here) had nothing to do with the alleged “nepotistic” behavior among editors and peer-reviewers, but appears to have had everything to do with politically incorrect questioning of IPCC orthodoxy. You can see how […]

More Signs Of Global Cooling? Sun’s Record Weak Polar Field May Forebode Maunder-like Minimum

Dr. Sebastian Lüning’s and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt’s Die kalte Sonne site brings us the latest solar report. ===================================== The Sun in January 2014 and News of the Sun’s Polar Field By Frank Bosse (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) Over the last month solar cycle 24 (SC24) has seen some rather brisk activity. The sunspot number […]

Distinguished Swedish Climate Scientist Warns Of Solar Grand Minimum … LITTLE ICE AGE In As Little As 15 Years!

Distinguished Swedish Climate Scientist Warns Of Solar Grand Minimum … LITTLE ICE AGE In As Little As 15 Years!

Professor Emeritus Nils-Axel Mörner, one of Sweden’s most distinguished climate scientists, has published a paper in the now forbidden Pattern Recognition Physics journal (PRP). His paper warns that the earth may see little ice age conditions by 2030. No wonder the climate establishment mobilized to shut down the PRP special edition! The peer-review uproar is nothing […]

Claim Global Warming Causes Cold “An Absurd PIK Construct On The Verge Of Extinction”, German Scientists Say

Absurd PIK construct on the verge of extinction: North American cold spell in January 2014 was not the result of global warming By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt Translated, edited by P Gosselin Earlier this year the USA was tested by unexpectedly cool temperatures. Die Welt summed up the situation on January 9, 2014: According to […]

Backfire! Eminent Physicist Calls Attempted Journal Suppression A Throwback To “Inquisition And Books Burning”!

Backfire! Eminent Physicist Calls Attempted Journal Suppression A Throwback To “Inquisition And Books Burning”!

As much as an entire array of forces attempted to prevent it, the PRP special edition journal with its 12 peer-reviewed papers that offer an alternative explanation on what contributes to driving climate is coming out – and how! Ironically, the intense efforts to silence the journal have backfired – the special edition has been […]

David And Goliath? Nicola Scafetta Fires Back At Harsh Willis Eschenbach’s Criticism!

UPDATE: wnd.com/2014/01/the-thermageddon-cult-9 Like a number of readers, I’m also quite puzzled by what is going on here. Maybe someone could fill us in on the background. It’s not the kind behavior we want to have. We’d prefer to see the long knives returned to the drawer. Again I’m not taking any sides. But I will […]

Watershed! BBC Now Sees Sun Developing Into A Potent 21st Century Climate Factor As A Real Possibility!

Slowly, almost imperceptibly, but surely, the once diehard the-science-is-settled mainstream media are conceding that the climate debate isn’t over after all – and likely not by a long shot. And if you pay attention, you can see them quietly opening that back door for the quick exit. The cracking started long ago, and now chips […]

Solar Cycle 24 Remains The Weakest In 170 Years… Svaalgard: “None Of Us Alive Have Ever Seen Such A Weak Cycle”

What implications could a low-activity sun have on earth? Fritz Vahrenholt’s and Frank Bosse’s latest solar report. =============================================== The Sun in December 2013: Coming Back To Life By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt Translated and edited by P Gosselin) For solar observers there was quite a bit of activity last month, namely sunspots, and not too […]

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 […]

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. […]

Scientists Warning Warm Winters Are A Thing Of The Past…”Going To Have To Put More Antifreeze In The Car”!

Fritz Vahrenholt and Frank Bosse have released their November solar activity report. It follows in English. =================================== The sun in November 2013: You’re going to have to add more antifreeze By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) In November 2013 the sun showed signs of more activity as sunspot number (SSN) […]

German Scientists Show Climate Driven By Natural Cycles – Global Temperature To Drop To 1870 Levels By 2100!

German Scientists Show Climate Driven By Natural Cycles – Global Temperature To Drop To 1870 Levels By 2100!

Climate reveals periodic nature, thus no influence by CO2 Prof. H. Luedecke and C.O. Weiss (Original German version here.) We reported recently about our spectral analysis work of European temperatures [1] which shows that during the last centuries all climate changes were caused by periodic (i.e. natural) processes. Non-periodic processes like a warming through the monotonic increase […]
