2 New Papers Indicate Modern Climate Still In A 'Colder Stage', Modulated By Solar Activity, ENSO

2 New Papers Indicate Modern Climate Still In A ‘Colder Stage’, Modulated By Solar Activity, ENSO

Graph from Perner et al. (2018) that shows modern-day Arctic sea ice (furthest left navy trend line) is still only slightly lower than during the Little Ice Age (LIA), and much more extensive (more ice) than during the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA), Roman Warm Period (RWP), and nearly all of the last 7,000 years. Song et al., […]

‘Consensus’ Science Takes A Hit In 2017 During 2017,  485 scientific papers have 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 policymakers and mainstream media. These 485 new […]

7 New (2017) Papers Forecast Global Cooling, Another Little Ice Age Will Begin Soon

Temperatures To Decrease 0.5°C-0.7°C Due To Low Sunspots, Solar Minimum Image Source: Abdussamatov, 2012 During 2017, 120 papers linking historical and modern climate change to variations in solar activity and its modulators (clouds, cosmic rays) have been published in scientific journals. It has been increasingly established that low solar activity (fewer sunspots) and increased cloud […]

Signs Show Planet Entering A New Dalton Minimum…Solar Cycle 24 Continues To Be Weakest In 200 Years!

Global surface temperatures have been falling steadily since the last El Nino, glacier melt has been decelerating rapidly and Arctic sea ice has been making a surprising recovery this year. Moreover, the equatorial Pacific has just entered a global cooling La Nina phase. But there is another far more ominous, long-term sign that the planet […]

New Paper: Most Modern Warming, Including For Recent Decades, Is Due To Solar Forcing, Not CO2

New Paper: Most Modern Warming, Including For Recent Decades, Is Due To Solar Forcing, Not CO2

‘Two-Thirds Of Climate Warming’ Since 1750 Due To ‘Solar Causes’ – Dr. Alan D. Smith, Geoscientist Though advocates of the dangerous anthropogenic global warming (AGW) narrative may not welcome the news, evidence that modern day global warming has largely been driven by natural factors – especially solar activity – continues to pile up. Much of […]

Thermal Engineer Claims Supernova Theory Explains Global Warming, Extinction Events, Ice Ages

Thermal Engineer Claims Supernova Theory Explains Global Warming, Extinction Events, Ice Ages

Do Supernova Events Cause Extreme Climate Changes? “Global warming will not be reduced by reducing man made CO2 emissions” In recent years, mass die-offs of large animals – like the sudden deaths of 211,000 endangered antelopes within a matter of weeks – have been described as “mysterious” and remain largely unexplained. Determining the cause of the […]

28 New Papers: Solar, Ocean Cycles Modulate Rainfall Trends

28 New Papers: Solar, Ocean Cycles Modulate Rainfall Trends

A Human Influence On Precipitation ‘Has Yet To Be Detected’ “Climate model output suggests decreasing rainfall as a consequence of anthropogenic greenhouse gas radiative forcing.” “[I]f anthropogenic forcing has impacted the [regional rainfall pattern], the signal has yet to be detected above the level of natural climate variability.” – Lachniet et al., 2017 According to […]

New Paper: 'Extremely High' TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert 'Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers'

New Paper: ‘Extremely High’ TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert ‘Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers’

Scientists Rebuke Claims Of Human Control Over Glacier Mass Balance “Natural climate variability still emerges as the key deciding element governing the Himalayan glacier mass balances.” – Shekhar et al., 2017 Yet another new paper has challenged to IPCC-endorsed conclusion that the Himalayan glaciers are melting rapidly due to anthropogenic climate change, and that these […]

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 […]

Attribution Shift: Scientists Increasingly Link Climate Change To Solar Forcing In Scientific Journals

Attribution Shift: Scientists Increasingly Link Climate Change To Solar Forcing In Scientific Journals

Scientists: It’s The Sun “The emerging causal effects from SS [solar activity] to GT [global temperatures], especially for recent decades, are overwhelmingly proved” – Huang et al., 2017 “Climate … follows SA [solar activity] fluctuations on multidecadal to centennial time scales” – Moreno et al., 2017 “The solar ‘activity’ increase is the chief driver of […]

Russian Scientists Find ‘Appreciable Contribution’ From Natural Variability, Solar Forcing To Recent Warming

Russian Scientists Find ‘Appreciable Contribution’ From Natural Variability, Solar Forcing To Recent Warming

Most Of Warming Trend Since 1980s Is Naturally Driven, Not CO2-Driven According to a new statistical analysis of centennial-scale surface temperature changes, half (0.5 °C) of the warming trend over the last 135 years (0.95 °C) can be explained by both (a) the existence of commonly-occurring natural (non-anthropogenic) variations of temperature that can reach the […]

17 New Scientific Papers Dispute CO2 Greenhouse Effect As Primary Explanation For Climate Change

17 New Scientific Papers Dispute CO2 Greenhouse Effect As Primary Explanation For Climate Change

“[T]he absorption of incident solar-light by the atmosphere as well as its absorption capability of thermal radiation, cannot be influenced by human acts.”  – Allmendinger, 2017 “[G]lobal warming can be explained without recourse to the greenhouse theory.  The varying solar irradiation constitutes the sole input driving the changes in the system’s energy transfers.”  – Blaauw, […]

Robust Natural Variability Affirmed In Global Sea Level Rise Rates - No Correlation With CO2 Forcing

Robust Natural Variability Affirmed In Global Sea Level Rise Rates – No Correlation With CO2 Forcing

 Tide Gauge Evidence: Sea Levels  Rose Faster Before 1950 Than Since In recent years it has become increasingly apparent that tide gauge measurements of sea level rise often do not align with climate model expectations. The models are predicated on the assumption that anthropogenic CO2 emissions, which have risen explosively since about 1950, are the drivers of modern […]

Current Solar Activity Resembles Dalton Minimum…Weakest Month 75-100 Period Recorded!

The sun in March 2017 By Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P. Gosselin) Our source of energy continued to be especially quiet last month. The mean sunspot number (SSN) was 17.7 and the sun was completely blank for 16 days. It is important to recall once again that the SSN is not […]
