Ph.D. 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” — Dr. William Sokeland 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

Researcher: More Evidence Extreme Weather In Japan, Global Cooling, Linked To Solar Activity

By Kyoji Kimoto I have found a 44-year cycle of heavy snowfall in Japan caused by a wavy jet stream, corresponding to Dalton and Gleissberg Minimum as follows [Kimoto, 2010]. 1. 1833/heavy snowfall – Dalton Minimum (1795-1830) 2. 1877 heavy snowfall (44 years later) 3. 1918/heavy snowfall: Gleissberg Minimum (1898-1923) – 41 years later 4. 1963/heavy snowfall (45 years […]

New Paper: 14 Scientists Affirm Solar Forcing, Not CO2, Is 'Dominant Control' For Modern Climate Change

New Paper: 14 Scientists Affirm Solar Forcing, Not CO2, Is ‘Dominant Control’ For Modern Climate Change

One of the oft-stated “truths” for advocates of the position that humans are predominantly responsible for climate changes is that the Sun could not have played more than a negligible role in the global warming of the last few centuries. Indeed, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) report theorizes that the long-term solar […]
