Spooky Pause…Solar Activity Now Has Leading German (Warmist) Science Journalist Asking About “Threat Of A Little Ice Age”

Science journalist Michael Odenwald at the German news weekly FOCUS used to be quite the warmist, and maybe he still is. But his latest article here tells us that he may be opening up to other climate change explanations: natural factors such as solar activity. Solar activity has quieted over the last years.

Forecast March-2015 Solar Eclipse Has Power Grid Operators Distressed…”Dangerously Destabilized”

One thing we can be predicted with very high certainty: On March, 20, 2015 most of Germany will see a partial yet substantial eclipse of the sun. 40 gigawatts of rated power blocked in just minutes! Normally that would be no big deal. But for the first time in history, due to Germany’s massive installed solar […]

GEOMAR Press Release: Solar Activity’s Profound Impact On Climate…Cripples Melting-Arctic Rossby-Wave Idea

GEOMAR Press Release: Solar Activity’s Profound Impact On Climate…Cripples Melting-Arctic Rossby-Wave Idea

What follows is the press release by GEOMAR on the very recent Muscheler et al paper showing the sun’s profound impact on northern hemispheric climate. Other sites touched on this paper, here and here. Now I’ve translated the entire GEOMAR press release from the German. The results of the study are impressive: ================================= The sun […]

German Update Points To Period Of Low Solar Activity, Cites “Non-Negligible Forcing On The Temperature”

The Sun In July 2014 And Arctic Sea In Mid Summer By Frank Bosse and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated/edited by P Gosselin) Last month the sun was variably active: The first ten days of the month were eventful, whereas the middle of the month solar activity was very calm with the negative high point occurring on July […]

German Geologist: IPCC Models A Failure, “Have No Chance Of Success”…Sees Possible 0.2°C Of Cooling By 2020

German Geologist: IPCC Models A Failure, “Have No Chance Of Success”…Sees Possible 0.2°C Of Cooling By 2020

Co-author of “The Neglected Sun“/geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning made a presentation at the 7th International Conference for Climate and Energy in Mannheim, Germany, back in April. EIKE has now put it up. The presentation is in German and so I am providing below a round up of the main points made by Lüning. Lüning starts by […]

Data Suggest That Solar Wind Impacts Global Temperature

Data Suggest That Solar Wind Impacts Global Temperature

By Ed Caryl On May 17th, Willis Eschenbach posted “Sailing on the Solar Wind” on WUWT. In it, he used a graph of the daily solar wind data since 1963. I wish to thank Willis for his effort in tabulating the daily data AND for making it available for the rest of us. That graph […]

Flurry Of Scientists, Recent Peer-Reviewed Papers, Warning Of Approaching Little Ice Age

There’s a lot of excitement flaring up, especially on the alarmist side, because of a possible super El Nino occurring later this year – one that could push global temperature to a new modern high. That of course is entirely possible. However, it isn’t going to really matter, and possibly may only be the last […]

Geologist Sebastian Lüning: Scientific Evidence Showing Sun/Oceans As Primary Climate Drivers Is ‘Massive, Overwhelming’!

Geologist Sebastian Lüning: Scientific Evidence Showing Sun/Oceans As Primary Climate Drivers Is ‘Massive, Overwhelming’!

The Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy EIKE announces that the 7th International Climate and Energy Conference is taking place at the Steigenberger Hotel in Mannheim, April, 10 2014. The event is being held by EIKE. The planned speakers include renowned scientists like Richard Lindzen, Henryk Svensmark and Nir Shaviv. Complete program and info here. […]

Global Warming Has Peaked…Set To Switch To Cooling. “If You Look At History, This Is Easy To See”

Global Warming Has Peaked…Set To Switch To Cooling. “If You Look At History, This Is Easy To See”

By Ed Caryl Is the world warming, cooling, or is the global temperature standing still? What does the future hold? Do past trends mean anything for the future? What period are we examining? For the purposes of this article, several short and long periods will be examined, 15, 150 and over 1000 years into the […]

Clear Solar Impact On Climate Shown By New Study – German Meteorologist Calls Parrenin et al Paper “The Latest Gag”

Clear Solar Impact On Climate Shown By New Study – German Meteorologist Calls Parrenin et al Paper “The Latest Gag”

Is CO2 the main driver behind climate? Warmist scientists would have us believe it is. One recent European study claims that CO2 and temperature rose simultaneously at the end of the last ice age, implying CO2 is a real driver. However, one prominent German meteorologist dismissed it and bluntly called the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et […]

Movement! German Media Reopen Climate Discussion – Concede Warming Has Stopped, Other Factors At Play

If Germany had recorded a record 5 warmer winters in a row, people would be reading and hearing about it for days without end. However, just the opposite has occurred: Germany has now experienced 5 colder than normal winters in a row – “a record” – now made official by the German Weather Service (This winter 0.6°C below […]

Russian Arctic Scientist: Permafrost Changes Due To Natural Factors…”It’s Going To Be Colder”!

Sebastian Lüning’s and Fritz Vahrenholt’s Die kalte Sonne presents an interesting view on permafrost from Russia. I’ve added some extra quotes from the video for non-German readers. After widespread sea ice melt in the Arctic in the 1930s and 40s, the ice re-established itself. In the 1970s the temperature dropped and sea ice increased. In […]

Solar Influence On Winter Severity In Central Europe, Dispels Junk Claim A Warm Arctic Causes Cold Winters

Solar Influence On Winter Severity In Central Europe, Dispels Junk Claim A Warm Arctic Causes Cold Winters

We’ve been hearing a lot of bogus “model science” asking us to believe the preposterous notion that a warm Arctic and reduced sea ice there “could” lead to bitter cold winters across Europe and North America. In summary the new science insists warming leads to more cold. Now there’s a new paper out in the […]

French Study: Mediterranean Storm Activity Linked To Solar Activity, Has Nothing To Do With CO2

Sebastian Lüning recently wrote a piece on a new study by a French team of scientists.  Conclusion: Mediterranean storm activity decreases during warm periods and there appears to be a solar link. ========================================== The worst storms at the French Mediterranean coast? Always when the sun was weak and temperatures declined! By Daniel Albig and Sebastian […]

Journal Of Climate Change: Last 15 Years, Netherlands Has Seen The Fewest Number Of Storms Since Records Began

At Der Spiegel Axel Bojanowski writes a story about a study appearing in the journal Climate Change:  A 101 year record of windstorms in the Netherlands. The results of the study are revealing. Let us recall that in Germany and within many circles of “experts” the prevailing wisdom is that man-made global warming is leading to more […]
