Crumbling 'Consensus': 500 Scientific Papers Published In 2016 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Crumbling ‘Consensus’: 500 Scientific Papers Published In 2016 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Climate science is supposed to be settled, right? We are told that there is an overwhelming agreement, or consensus, among scientists that most weather and climate changes that have occurred since the mid-20th century have been caused by human activity — our fossil fuel burning and CO2 emissions in particular.  We are told that natural mechanisms that […]

Widespread Siberian Cold, Area As Big As Half The USA Now Under 40° Below

Widespread Siberian Cold, Area As Big As Half The USA Now Under 40° Below

I keep hearing how the Arctic is warmer than normal, and so it’s a sure sign of “global warming”. Yet I came across a chart earlier today showing conditions over Siberia, which of course is a vast region. What’s interesting is the extent and sheer depth of the cold that has gripped this area: Chart […]

Veteran Meteorologist Warns Europe Winter To Make "Global Headlines"..."Tremendous Amounts Of Snow"!

Veteran Meteorologist Warns Europe Winter To Make “Global Headlines”…”Tremendous Amounts Of Snow”!

A couple of days ago I reported here how Joe Bastardi warned that Europe would soon be turning cold and wintry. Well, he hasn’t backed off at all from that forecast and appears to be gaining more confidence with it. Although the timing may have shifted about a bit , the overall pattern remains: cold […]

Meteorologists Warn Of Possible Arctic Blast For Europe. Also: Threat Of Green Energy Refugees!

Meteorologists Warn Of Possible Arctic Blast For Europe. Also: Threat Of Green Energy Refugees!

At his Weatherbell Daily Update (12/26) veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi issued an Arctic weather heads up for Europe after the New Year: Look at this in the 11 to 16. This is indicating that the models think there’s going to be a lot of snow on the ground in the UK and all through western Europe.” The […]

National Weather Service's Multi-Billion Dollar Models Fail ...Totally Botched Forecasts!

National Weather Service’s Multi-Billion Dollar Models Fail …Totally Botched Forecasts!

If President-elect Donald Trump is looking for places to cut costs, he might want to take a look at the National Weather Service’s seasonal forecasting unit. Yesterday at the Daily Update over at Weatherbell Analytics, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi looked at the season forecasts, generated by billion dollar super-computers,  recently put out by NCEP. Turns out […]

Polar Split Threatens To Shock-Freeze Europe This Winter

Ice and cold were supposed to be a thing of the past, global warming theorists insisted some years ago. But that hasn’t been true. The problem is that the natural factors clearly dominate, and the experts had forgotten all about them. Winters with snow and ice are just as likely as they ever were in the […]

Warnings Of A "December To Remember" As No. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches 2nd Highest Level!

Warnings Of A “December To Remember” As No. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches 2nd Highest Level!

What follows is an interesting chart presented by Joe Bastardi’s Daily Update at Weatherbell Analytics. There’s been a lot of talk about the current warm weather conditions up in the high Arctic, but little talk about the impressive snow cover over the northern hemisphere and the extreme and vast cold over Russia and Siberia. What happened […]

Since 1982, Temperature Records Show No Warming Other Than That Due To Natural El Niño Warmth-Inducing Events

Since 1982, Temperature Records Show No Warming Other Than That Due To Natural El Niño Warmth-Inducing Events

Over the course of years to decades, the heat contained in the ocean naturally undulates, with more or less upwelling cooler waters rising to the surface.  Naturally-occuring El Niño (wind current) events greatly influence the prevention of cooler waters from upwelling to the surface; this phenomenon, in turn, ultimately elicits an overall surface warming event […]

Cold October... N. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches Near Record High ...Record Snow In Siberia!

Cold October… N. Hemisphere Snow Cover Reaches Near Record High …Record Snow In Siberia!

Cold German October Germany’s Deutsche Wetterdienst (DWD) weather service reports the preliminary weather data for October. At a mean of 8.6°C, the month came in 0.6°C colder than normal (compared to the 1981-2010 mean) and even came in 0.4°C colder than the 1961-1990 mean. The DWD hints that natural variability factors are to blame for […]

Weather Models Now Agreeing: Early WINTER BRUTALITY For Europe/Asia, With "Vicious" Conditions!

Weather Models Now Agreeing: Early WINTER BRUTALITY For Europe/Asia, With “Vicious” Conditions!

Seasonal forecasts are iffy. Right now, however, there are strengthening indicators showing winter brutality in the pipeline for Europe rushing at us like an express train. Don’t let the current relatively benign autumn conditions fool you. I’ve been following all of this over the past couple of weeks, and as a result decided last Friday to […]

Early Europe Winter? ...And Greenland Sees "Record" 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Early Europe Winter? …And Greenland Sees “Record” 12 Billion Tonnes Ice Growth In A Single Day!

Yesterday veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi brought to our attention an article by the Washington Post here, where it reports forecasters are warning that the coming winter “could get nasty” for the Washington D.C. area. Although the National Weather Service predicts “equal chances of a cold or mild winter”, private meteorologists warn the winter could get […]

Rare Event ...Millions Of Children Under 11 See First Time Major Hurricane Hit Florida!

Rare Event …Millions Of Children Under 11 See First Time Major Hurricane Hit Florida!

After days of uncertainty, Hurricane Matthew finally took a track taking it directly to Florida. It’s the first major category hurricane to hit the sunshine state (and the US, if I’m not mistaken) in almost 11 years. The last major hurricane to strike was Wilma in 2005. This 4000-day hiatus is a record since hurricane statistics began […]

25 New Papers Confirm A Remarkably Stable Modern Climate: Fewer Intense Storms, Hurricanes, Droughts, Floods, Fires…

It has by now become common practice for just about any and every unusual weather occurrence, extreme temperature anomaly,  or seismic event to be somehow, someway linked to the human practice of using energy derived from fossil fuels.   No hurricane, flood, drought, storm, wildfire … is spared from potential anthropogenic implication. Last week, a named hurricane […]

Europeans Stunned As Winter Strikes In Mid July! Snow Down To Only 1500 Meters …”Extremely Rare”

UPDATE: Some Swiss mountain passes “had to be closed” Here in the north German flatlands, my wife this morning commented that it felt like fall this morning. Indeed it was a bit nippy outside. As already forecast here, snow hit the German higher elevations, but with snow falling to as low as 1500 early this […]
