Meteorologist Calls Forecast Of A “Majorca Winter” For Europe “Stupidity”…Winter, Snow And Cold Grip Continent

Earlier this year as the late autumn ran mild and the winter started well on the mild side  for Central Europe, meteorologists were projecting a “Majorca Winter”, after the tropical-like Spanish Island which is noted for its sunny and warm year-round weather. A sort of “barbeque winter” was all the talk. But recently winter has tightened […]

Good article at Quadrant magazine here on the background behind the many failed predictions of disaster in climate science and the strange characters behind them. Hat tip: reader Stefan. ======================== Warmists Take the Hardest Hits Anyone can be a prophet of doom…. Why can’t the global-warming catastrophe industry convince the public that the scare underwriting […]

Part 2 Of Documentary Totally Dismisses/Contradicts Michael Mann’s Claim Of A Steady Climate Since 1000 A.D.

Yesterday I posted on Part 1 of German ZDF television’s Terra-X series two-part documentary on climate and human history appearing on January 11  and 18. Part 1 covered the world’s climatic changes that occurred during the last ice age and up to the time of the Roman Empire. Part 1 clearly showed that the earth’s climate […]

Activist Dana Nuccitelli Starting To Sweat? Satellite Data Show Current Decade Running COOLER Than The Previous!

Activist Dana Nuccitelli Starting To Sweat? Satellite Data Show Current Decade Running COOLER Than The Previous!

Many readers will recall the climate bet for charity this site and its readers (the coolists) entered into against the climate alarmists, principally climate loudmouth Dana Nuccitelli and Rob Honeycutt, back in January 2011. The coolists maintain that the 2011 – 2020 decade will be the same or cooler than the 2001 – 2010 decade. […]

Climatologists’ Projections Defied…25-Year Trend For German Winters Shows Cooling! …”Snow Has Not Disappeared”

In 2014, Germany and parts of Europe will be seeing their warmest year ever since temperature recording began in earnest late in the 19th century. The media and alarmists are giddy about this, even though most of it is due to a global weather pattern that worked to deliver an almost steady stream of warm […]

2014/15 Super El Niño Gets "The Kiss Of Death"...Climatologists' Prediction Of Warming Planet Crumbles Again

2014/15 Super El Niño Gets “The Kiss Of Death”…Climatologists’ Prediction Of Warming Planet Crumbles Again

Joe Bastardi’s latest Weatherbell Saturday Summary is out. This week the high-profile, veteran meteorologist has some interesting comments on sea surface temperatures and this year’s once highly ballyhooed “super El Niño“. Remember how earlier this year a number a climatology experts were all giddy because somehow they had managed to convince themselves that a “super El […]

Climate Witchcraft Booms: Global WARMING To Cause More Severe Winters…But Green Energies Causing COOLING!

The global warmists are in a disarray vortex. Their science now insists that it is both cooling and warming – at the same time! In the complex, convoluted and clashing parallel worlds of the global warming alarmists, everything is possible. Physical laws are bent, twisted, completely redefined, or ignored altogether with every passing day. More […]

Viennese Climate Waltz…Austrian Media/State Officials Still Using Faulty Models, Misleading The Public

UPDATE: Ed Caryl provided the following: Based on GISS data ======================================== Even though IPCC climate models and expected climate trends have proven themselves to be completely false and useless, see here and here, parts of the Austrian media and state sector have no qualms using them, and in doing so they are misleading the public. A recent […]

Extreme Stupidity: Bremen’s ‘Weser Kurier’ Daily Now Claiming Climate Change Is Damaging Church Organs

This story is a perfect illustration of how today’s journalists will print anything they told by swindling climate scientists. ========================================== Bremen’s Weser Kurier daily is very sure: “Climate change is damaging organs” By Sebastian Lüning and Fritz Vahrenholt (Translated, edited by P Gosselin) The newspaper of the German port city of Bremen, the Weser Kurier […]

“Self-Inflicted Apocalypse Fascination”! Germany’s Leading Daily Fed Up With End-Of-World Scenarios, Climate Catastrophe!

Germany’s major media takes a landmark step, one could argue. At their Die kalte Sonne site, geologist Dr. Sebastian Lüning and chemist Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt point out a recent article appearing in Germany’s no. 1 daily by circulation (2.5 million), Bild. Apparently the Axel Springer publication is getting fed up with all the global warming catastrophe […]

German DWD Weather Service Reverses Earlier Climate Forecasts, Thus Confirm They Are Loads Of Bull-Manure

Some years ago German “climate experts” were all forecasting hot, dry summers for Germany. But now, after a series of wet summers, they are telling us we have to expect wet summers in the future. Nobody knows what to believe anymore. One day they say prepare for this, and the next day they say prepare for […]

Panic Time! IPCC Climate Scientist Serves Up Litany Of Excuses For Warming Stop…Advocates Upward Temp Adjustments!

The online Swiss 20min.ch here reports on a new study just appearing in the latest Nature Geoscience, authored by devout warmist climate scientist Reto Knutti of the Zurich ETH. Knutti’s study and the 20min.ch article are in a panicked scramble to explain why there hasn’t been any warming in more than 15 years, insisting that […]

2008 Paper Demolished "Forest Die-Off" Scare: "None Of The Apocalyptic Prophecies Of That Time Fulfilled"

2008 Paper Demolished “Forest Die-Off” Scare: “None Of The Apocalyptic Prophecies Of That Time Fulfilled”

If you’re wondering about the long-term future of the climate doomsday scare, what follows is a clue. A reader brought my attention to a 2008 paper by Horeis that completely demolished the forest die-off scare of the 1980s. Here’s an excerpt from the abstract shown above (my emphasis), in case it’s difficult to read: The […]

1980s Dire Warnings Of Acid Rain / Forest Die-Off Prove To Be Pure Fallacy From Hysterical Scientists a

I spent a few days with my wife in Amsterdam, and so blogging was a bit on the light side. Today’s story is a short one about acid rain and forest die-off. Most people over 40 will certainly recall that one. Whenever scientists are completely wrong, they hope no one will notice years later and that […]

Remember The "Very Early Warning Of Next El Niño" Paper By Ludescher? "False-Alarm Rates Below 0.1"!

Remember The “Very Early Warning Of Next El Niño” Paper By Ludescher? “False-Alarm Rates Below 0.1″!

Very recently the Australian Meteorological Institute issued a bulletin advising that the chance of an El Niño in 2014 had “clearly eased“. And if one were to occur, it was “increasingly unlikely to be a strong event“. Like this year’s El Niño itself, reliable prediction method remains elusive as ever. Graphic: NOAA. This of course all flies […]
