It’s certainly no misperception that global warming alarmists have become far more shrill over the past months with ever wilder, more sensational claims about how the climate is getting more dangerous.

Making up facts

For example, in his COP25 opening speech, many of the claims made by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres outright flunked the reality test, were exposed to be outlandish and seemed to be completely made up.

At Twitterm, Timjbo tweeted some Sky News footage of a statement made by the UN Secretary General, followed by a fact-check:

 Climate related disasters are becoming more frequent, more deadly, more destructive with growing human and financial cost.”

“Incredible 98% reduction” in climate deaths since 1930

The footage of Guterres is then followed by a Sky News panel analysis at Sky News, which featured MP Craig Kelly, who said that Guterres told three untruths in a single sentence.

First, Guterres claims a greater number of deaths from climate-related disasters, but this is untrue as the data chart show:

Lie no. 1: More climate-related deaths. Reality: 98% reduction since 1930!

Guterres is saying the exact opposite of what is true

Kelly shows that climate-related deaths are “at the lowest level in history”.

“There’s been a 98% decline, an incredible 98% decline since the 1930s,” said Kelly. “And this year we’ll get the lowest number of deaths from climate-related  disasters, ever!”

Kelly slams the UN Secretary General for saying the “exact opposite of what is true.”

Lie number 2: increasing number of climate related disasters

Also shown by Sky News is a chart depicting the number of reported natural disasters since 2000.

It’s a lie that climate-related disasters have increased.

Lies for cash = fraud

Here as well climate-related disasters have fallen steadily since 2000.

Kelly believes that money is behind all the falsehoods. “The UN is after cash,” Kelly says. He adds: “Now when someone makes false and misleading statements asking for cash, that is called fraud.”

Lie no. 3: “The costs of disasters is increasing.”

The third lie in the Secretary General’s whopper statement was saying the costs of disasters was rising. But here as well the data tell the opposite story:

Warmth-Demanding Species Present In The Early Holocene Arctic Verify It Was 7°C Warmer Then

Scientists find three Arctic (Svalbard) lakes were all ~7°C warmer than they are now about 10,000 years ago – when CO2 concentrations were only 260 ppm.

According to a just-published Geophysical Research Letters paper (van der Bilt et al., 2019), not only were surface temperatures 7°C warmer than today in High Arctic Svalbard due to the accompanying “high radiative forcing” during the Early Holocene, but sea ice limits were well north of the study area back then too.

The authors point out that model “simulations neither reproduce this reconstructed pattern nor its magnitude.” This is presumably because the model simulations are predicated on the assumption CO2 concentrations are a primary climate driver.

This paper is yet another in a “growing body of recent work” that uses the prevalence of warmth-demanding (thermophilious) species present in Arctic locations to reconstruct regional temperatures based on a requisite warmth limit for the species’ survival.

Earlier this year Leopold et al., 2019 assessed temperatures were 5-8°C warmer than today in Arctic Svalbard 8 to 10 thousand years ago due to the presence of Mytilus spp, a warmth-loving mussel.

Distinguished Princeton Physicist Likens Climate Movement To “Madness”…A “Bizarre Environmental Cult”

At COP 25 in Madrid, Princeton physicist and former President Trump advisor Prof. em. William Happer spoke on the “false pretenses of a climate emergency” and called the climate protection movement a “bizarre environmental cult”, “absurd” and “madness”.

The distinguished professor said, “It’s too bad we are here on false pretenses, wasting our time talking about a non-existent climate emergency.”

“Bizarre environmental cult”

Some 25,000 delegates have flown into Madrid to express their panic over a perceived climate emergency and to pressure governments to take radical actions to profoundly alter human behavior.

Happer added: “I hope sooner or later enough people will recognize the phoniness of this bizarre environmental cult and bring it to an end.”

In his talk, Happer warned leading politicians against viewing combatting CO2 as a religion, and cautioned it could end up badly when millions of people become obsessed with a single delusion and become stark-raving mad at climate. He said there’s been “so much brainwashing that it’s going to be difficult to bring people back to reality.”

The distinguished Princeton professor said the focus needs to be on pollution, and not CO2, and that solar energy and wind energy blight the environment and don’t work very well.

Only very little impact on climate

On the physics of CO2 trapping heat, Happer presents a CO2 chart and suggests that doubling the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere will have very little impact on climate and that he “can guarantee that no one who knows anything about science can dispute this curve. That’s the truth.”

“Absolute madness”

Taking action based on the curves that show CO2 has little effect, Happer says this is “absolute madness.”

The Princeton physicist also believes the climate models greatly exaggerate the warming and that the trace gas is in fact beneficial to the planet. Today atmospheric concentrations are extremely low compared to previous geological times:

The extra CO2 recently added into the atmosphere has in fact led to a greening of the planet, Happer shows.

“Phony consensus”

Next Happer called the often claimed 97% consensus among scientists “phony” and that science is determined by observation, “not votes”. “Scientific consensus is often wrong,” Happer showed.

Happer summarized that CO2’s impact has been exaggerated “by a factor of 2 to 4”, and that overall a little extra CO2 in the atmosphere is beneficial to vegetation and agriculture.

The whole CO2/climate worry “is absolutely absurd. It’s a cult,” Happer concludes.

“Model Failure”…”Politics Hot Because Climate Models Are Too Hot”, Says Leading German Climate Science Skeptic

Share this...
Share on Facebook

Twitter

Leading German climate science critic Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt has penned a commentary at Achgut.de titled: “How climate models inflate climate sensitivity.”

Image: GWPF

CO2 climate overblown

Vahrenholt cites Lewis/Curry 2018, who concluded “1.3°C for a doubling of the CO2 content of the atmosphere by about the end of this century (transient climate response), 1.7°C for a long-term equilibrium (ECS) in the period 2150 to 2200.

The German professor added: “Papers which examined historical periods (last glacial maximum to pre-industrial) do not contradict these low figures.”

Vahrenholt, co-author of The Neglected Sun, says that it’s been explained at his Die kalte Sonne site how “climate models are too hot” and that they do not fit with the observations”.

Overheated models a threat to movements

“If models and reality do not fit together, scientists should rather question their models,” says Vahrenholt. “This would mean that the much more dramatic sensitivity estimates of the last IPCC model observations – 1.86°C for TCR and 3°C for ECS – would have to be thrown overboard.” This of course would result in undermining the current Fridays for Future movement and plans by governments to tax CO2.

Activists currently blame the mismatch between models and observations on temporary “internal variability” events and that the warming will become “much stronger on a global scale in accordance to the models,” says Vahrenholt. But the IPCC’s and activists’ claims are being severely challenged by studies, such as Dong et al (2019), Vahrenholt comments.

Once again models fail

In Dong et al, which looks at the Tropical Pacific, it is shown how “once again the models fail because of the clouds!”

“It is therefore a clear physical mechanism that leads to the observed stronger warming of the tropical West Pacific leading to lower global sensitivities (= stronger negative global feedback),” the German professor of chemistry writes. “Climate models have such large deficits in the depiction of events in the tropical Pacific that they wrongly determine the global response to drivers and systematically overestimate the sensitivity to CO2 as a driver, a second paper by Seager et al of Columbia University in the respected scientific journal “Nature” (!) from July 2019 shows.”

“The failure of state-of-the-art models to capture the correct response introduces critical error into their projections of climate change,” Seager et al concluded.

But Germany’s leading climate science critic does not expect the IPCC to take all the errors into account when it puts out its forthcoming progress report. That would be a heck of a huge mess for the IPCC and an embarrassment to climate science and overzealous climate policymakers.

IPCC will go on pretending

“Then hundreds of pages dealing with model projections would have to be critically revised,” comments Vahrenholt. So for the IPCC, it’s best to just simply ignore all the inconvenient science and to go on pretending.

Vahrenholt concludes: “Politics is hot because the models are too hot. Which scientists have the courage and are ready to accept their responsibility to enlighten FFF and policymaking?”

“Not Worthy Of Any Consensus” …4 Renowned Scientists Expose Major IPCC Shortcomings: “Models Clearly Erroneous”

The Munich Climate Conference 2019

By Dr. Andreas Mueller
(Summarized by P. Gosselin)

Last weekend the climate conference by the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy EIKE took place in Munich, despite threats by leftist radicals.

More than a dozen leading international climate experts presented views that severely challenge mainstream alarmist climate science.

1. Alps glaciers smaller than today during much of the Holocene

Among the speakers was Prof. em. Christian Schlüchter is a leading Swiss geologist who studied the glaciers of the Alps in great detail for decades. In his talk he reported his findings from very old timber found in and below glaciers, and what those ancient tree remnants tell us about the glacial epochs of the Alps.
Schlüchter1

Image: EIKE

Schlüchter’s findings involve paleoclimatic records (timber, turfs, insects, etc.) found and dated using 14C as a standard method. The most important slide of his talk shows the last 12,000 years:

SchlüchterÜberblick

Image: EIKE

His findings show that for long periods of time in the last 12,000 years, temperatures were higher than in 2005.  Early on, from 10,000 to 8,800 BC, and again in the last few hundred years, temperatures were significantly lower.

The key message is that the alpine glacier extent was often smaller than in 2005. The timberline was at least 300 meters higher, which indicates a minimum of 1.8° C higher temperatures than today. An example of this is Hannibal, who managed to cross the Alps with elephants during the Roman times.

Schlüchter summarized that more than 50% of the last 11000 years alpine glaciers were smaller than 2005 and that events of glacier growth were fast and short. Also the little ice age (from the end of the medieval warm period to about 1850) was the longest glacier extension since the last ice age 12,000 years ago,

2. IPCC models have substantial shortcomings

Also speaking at the conference was Italian physicist and climate modeler Nicola Scafetta, a well-known critic of IPCC climate models. His talk in Munich again examined the substantial shortcomings of IPCC climate models:

Scafetta1

Image: EIKE

Scafetta discussed several areas where the climate models constantly fail. A key case is the Medieval Warm Period, which he showed together with the Roman Warm Period and the Modern Warm Period:

On the following slide, Prof. Scafetta shows how the IPCC models (light blue line) fail to reproduce the Medieval Warm Period (red real data) in the left part of the chart:

ScafettaModelFailure

Image: EIKE

According to Scafetta, the models the IPCC uses are not capable of reproducing climate variations, which follow periodic solar activity.

The following chart compares the IPCC 2013 models to that of his own model (yellow area):

ScafettaDatenheute

Image: EIKE

Both are not perfect and so indeed contradict any claim that the “science is settled”. But Scafetta’s model appears to be much more on track than the IPCC models.

Scafetta concludes:

ScafettaFazit

 

3. Nir Shaviv: CO2 climate sensitivity largely overestimated 

Renowned Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv continued where Scafetta left off, presenting the IPCC world and its errors. Shaviv emphasized that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is unknown and largely overestimated by the IPCC:

NirShaviv1

Image: EIKE

The Israeli astrophysicist judged the IPCC leaving out the sun as a driver “a severe shortcoming”, saying that the IPCC overestimates climate sensitivity of CO2 at the expense of solar influences.

While IPCC modelers managed to hide this for 20th century data, it will lead to a serious overestimate of temperatures in the 21st when solar influences will be cooling, according to the the Israeli scientist. Shaviv therefore expects a much lower temperature rise than that predicted by the IPCC.

Shaviv summarized:

ShavivFazit

Image: EIKE

4. Sun, clouds have huge impact on climate, IPCC ignores

Danish physicist and climate researcher Henrik Svensmark talked how he found it more and more difficult to raise funding for his research because the results contradict the IPCC.

Svensmark investigated the mechanism of how cosmic rays impact the creation of climate-crucial clouds. This happens through creation of ions which serve as clouding seeds in the atmosphere:

CosmicRayCloudLink

Image: EIKE

By experiments and by correlation measurements, Svensmark investigated the mechanism of cloud creation by cosmic rays. IPCC researchers already cite a reduction of cloud creation as a possible positive feedback mechanism, which could escalate global warming to catastrophic levels, and so Svensmark’s research needs to be addressed seriously.

The importance of cloud creation as a cooling climate factor is regarded as undisputed, Svensmark’s conclusion:

SvensmarkConclusion

Image: EIKE

Scientific summary

Overall, as a physicist, I found the 4 ground-breaking scientists presented results that make it seem highly improbable that the IPCC climate models are complete and reliable. The IPCC models are hardly worthy of any 97% consensus.

Cartology Affirms Relative Sea Levels Were Similar To Or HIGHER Than Now During The Little Ice Age

Surprisingly accurate nautical maps created the 17th to 19th centuries strongly suggest coastal land area in both hemispheres were quite similar to today’s. There is even evidence relative sea levels were higher than now back then.

Image Source: Etsy.com

Globally, coasts have grown since the 1980s

Between 1985 and 2015, satellite observations indicate the world’s coasts gained 13,565 km²  more land area than they had lost to the seas (Donchyts et al., 2016).

This means more coastal land area is above sea level today than in the 1980s.

This surprises scientists, as they “expected the coast would start to retreat due to sea level rise,” but instead they observed “coasts are growing all over the world.”

Image Source(s): Donchyts et al., 2016 and BBC (press release)

Duvat (2019) also identified a global trend in island shoreline net growth since the 1980s despite recent sea level rise, as none of the globe’s islands larger than 10 ha – and just 1.2% of the 334 islands larger than 5 ha – have decreased in size since the 1980s.

These recent trends would appear to be the opposite of what would be expected with modern global warming.

Are relative sea levels lower now than during the 1800s?

As the climate warms and glaciers and ice sheets melt, it’s assumed coasts should be much smaller today than they were during the much colder and more glaciated Little Ice Age (1400-1900 A.D.).

But shorelines are not clearly smaller today according to highly detailed maps dated to the 17th to 19th centuries.

Below are 4 examples of direct comparisons between today’s Google Maps images of islands and maps from 1802, 1873, 1893, and even 1640. Each suggest there may have been slightly more land area underwater during the Little Ice Age than today.

1. An 1893 nautical map of the UK’s Isle of Man shows there was more land area underwater in 1893 than in 2019.

2. Here is an 1802 nautical map of New York City and Long Island. There may have been more open waters in this region during the Little Ice Age than in 2019.

3. A 1640 Dutch map of Taiwan shows this land area was no larger than it is today during the Little Ice Age. It even seems small nearby islands were further underwater 380 years ago than they are now.

4. An 1873 nautical map of Tasmania shows similar-sized to smaller coastal land area nearly 150 years ago when compared to images from today.

Even Faster, More Powerful Than Climate Change… Europe’s Movement To Ecological Tyranny Emerging Rapidly

Share this...
Share on Facebook

Claims of an escalating climate crisis are getting ever shriller in Europe and calls  for “real and radical action” are becoming increasingly urgent.

Leaders are now labelling their own citizens “ecological vandals”, and openly demanding they be brought under tight control by a China-modelled system. The building blocks for a tyranny are in place. 

Lately the thinly veiled calls for watering down western democracy have been becoming increasingly clear and unmistakable.

All the cornerstones for a green tyranny are emerging in Europe: 1) a claimed climate crisis that is 2) attributable to reckless human behavior, 3) it is urgent and 4) thus justifies strict regulation of human behavior, and all accompanied by 5) actions to silence dissident views.

Consumers criminalized, being labelled “ecological vandals”

Blaming humans for the ” climate crisis” is already well underway across Europe.

Recently the online Die Welt reported on a DPA interview of Green Party mastermind Nico Paech, who in the interview called for “a radical change in the behavior of citizens.”

Economist Paech, a proponent of a “post-growth economy which calls for a move away from consumerism and further economic growth, told the DPA that a majority society “believes it is climate competent, but lives like ecological vandals.” In other words, free citizens are to be viewed as criminals.

What is needed, said Paech, was a “radical reorientation” in order to “drastically reduce the emission of greenhouse gases quickly” and that it was necessary to “clear out our lifestyles”. What is needed is an authoritarian government to take swift and harsh control, he suggests. 

German leader: China-like dictatorship “more efficient”

Meanwhile German Green Party leader Robert Habeck last year in an interview with Phoenix German public television told viewers that if a democracy is unable to keep pace with the pressing challenges, then “a centralized system, which is naturally faster” needs to be seriously considered.

Habeck cites China as an example on how to get things done when citizens get in the way. In China:

There is no opposition or participation by citizens. And if they make mistakes, they still cannot be elected out of office. Maybe there will be a revolt in China, but first of all the system is more efficient. Do we want that or not? The decision cannot be made economically. It can be made only based on values and, yes, I would say that’s what we want.”

EU declares climate state of emergency

And to lay the groundwork for implementing such radical authoritarian initiatives, it comes as no surprise that the EU just recently declared “a climate emergency” after a vote of 429 MEPs in favour and 225 against. “Europe became the first continent to make this declaration,” Euronews.com reported.

Note s state of emergency is defined as follows:

A situation in which a government is empowered to perform actions or impose policies that it would normally not be permitted to undertake. A government can declare such a state during a disaster, civil unrest, or armed conflict. Such declarations alert citizens to change their normal behavior and orders government agencies to implement emergency plans.”

So, there’s really not much left to keep the EU from grabbing a lot more power, except ardent protests. But here, too, EU leaders are at work.

Free speech has its limits

Listen to German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s speech on freedom of expression, where she says ” freedom of speech has its limits” and that “we have to take away your freedom of speech, or else society won’t be free.”

Surely everyone is against hate speech. But deciding what qualifies as hate speech should not be left to governments – especially those obsessed with a climate doomsday to the point that they now label climate science skeptics as “deniers” and hinder them from expressing dissent and participating in public debate.

Moreover, Big Social Media like Twitter, Google and Facebook are also busily working behind the scenes obstructing dissenters from getting their views out over a variety of issues. And they are under increasing pressure to clamp down even harder.

So the building blocks of a green tyranny are already in place in Europe: crisis, urgency, culprit, proposed system, suppression of speech.

Opportunity knocks

Right now, the EU is just waiting patiently for that one opportune moment. We are possibly witnessing a watershed historical event in the making.

Leading Meteorologist Slams Climate Alarmists As “Desperate and Scientifically Wrong”…PIK “Doomsday Prophets”

Share this...
Share on Facebook

Tweet about this on Twitter
Twitter

High-profile Swiss meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann has penned a stinging commentary in the online Bayerischer Kurier concerning all the climate doomsday hysteria sweeping across Europe, and warns history tells us such hysteria has never turned out well.

PIK’s “silly” science, doomsday prophets

The veteran meteorologist, who is convinced the planet is indeed warming due to man’s activities, worries that environmental groups have been getting away with falsehoods and how the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is promoting “silly” science and “view themselves as the prophets of the imminent end of the world.”

One problem with all the über-alarmism, Kachelmann sees, is a tendency of people simply resigning because they’ve come to believe that nothing can be done to stop the coming doomsday, and so why bother trying.

He also sharply criticizes green activists who blame every extreme weather event on man-made climate change, writing that it is “desperate and scientifically completely wrong”.

Future scenarios as the present – bigger media bang!

One reason the activists have become so shrill, Kachelmann believes, is due in large part to the media’s willingness to run with every sensational story without an inkling of background checking.

“Since votes are to be won now, scientifically quite justifiable predictions for the future are quickly changed into the present, because there’s a bigger bang. The charlatans are certain that this mischief will spread through the media at a time when most German states have largely abolished science education.”

“Whoring for clicks”…”bullshit sells”

“The collective disinformation unscientists meet up with a sad media situation, where the successful whoring for clicks is more important than even the smallest quantities of respectability. Stupid clicks well, says Kachelmann. “But that doesn’t matter to “Focus”, “Merkur” or the “Süddeutsche” [publications]. It still gets written because bullshit sells.”

Woodstoves, not cars, are worst polluters

Another hot issue in Germany is fine particle pollution. Here Kachelmann also sees policymakers stampeding down the wrong solution path, and are falsely putting most of the blame on automobiles: “The exceedance of fine particles and other pollutants is almost exclusively due not to traffic, but to wood-burning stoves, which have recently multiplied in densely populated areas, because insane people claim that they are “ecological.”

Over the recent years the German government has been turning a blind eye to dirty wood-burning stoves – even supporting their use. Now towns and villages across Germany are filled with choking smoke from the supposedly climate-friendly burning of wood.

Scientists: Mars Has A 95% CO2 Atmosphere…But ‘There Is Little To Retain Heat On The Planet’

Share this...

Tweet about this on Twitter

Earth’s atmosphere contains 400 ppm CO2 (0.04%). Mars has a 950,000 ppm (95%) CO2 atmosphere. But Mars has surface temperatures that are about -75°C colder on average than Earth’s because atmospheric density, or pressure, is the “game changer” largely determining planetary temperatures.

Image Source: Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Surface temperatures on Mars

The average surface temperature of a planetary body is significantly determined by its distance from the Sun.

According to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Mars is close enough to the Sun to have its surface temperatures reach 35°C (95°F) at the equator during summer.

During winter, however, the Martian temperature dips to -90°C (-130°F).

The average surface temperature for Mars is about -60°C (-80°F).

Image Source: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Atmospheric composition of Mars vs. Earth

Both Venus and Mars have atmospheres that contain over 95% CO2.

In contrast, Earth’s atmosphere contains just over 0.04% CO2.

Image Source: Space.com

Extreme temperature swings on Mars

While the solar heat reaching Mars can warm its surface by up to 35°C, about 8-11°C (15-20°F) of that incident heat will be lost to space just 1.5 meters from the surface (Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, 2018).

“There might be a 15-20 degree temperature change between where your feet are and where your head is if you were standing on Mars.”

Nights and winters are unfathomably cold, whereas daytime summer temperatures can be similar to or warmer than Earth’s.

As atmospheric scientist Dr. Matthew Shindell points out, the reason for this wide variance in temperature extremes is that “there is little to retain heat on the planet” despite Mars’ 950,000 ppm CO2 atmosphere.

Image Source: Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, 2018

Atmospheric density, or pressure, is the “big game changer”

Mars’ thin atmospheric denisity, or pressure (AP), reaches just 0.006 bar. Earth’s AP is 1 bar. The AP for Venus is 92 bar.

Image Source: ScienceDaily, 2017

Consequently, the Mars, Earth, and Venus surface temperatures average -60°C, 15°C, and 462°C, respectively.

Interestingly, on the summit of Venus’s Maxwell Montes the AP drops from 92 bar to 45 bar. In turn, the surface temperature plummets by -82°C even though the CO2 concentration (96%) is the same at both locations.

Image Source: Universe Today

Mars’ 0.006 bar AP is referred to as the “big game changer” in explaining why its surface is so cold on average. The atmospheric greenhouse gas composition – effectively the same (95-96% CO2) for both Mars and Venus – does “little to retain heat”.

In sum,  a planet’s relative warmth can be enhanced “due to an increase in atmospheric mass” or in its capacity to retain heat (Chemke et al., 2016), and temperatures are cooler if there is “a decline in atmosheric pressure” (Sorokhtin et al., 2007).

Image Source: Chemke et al., 2016

Image Source: Sorokhtin et al., 2007

Does the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hypothesis have a Mars problem?

Again, despite Mars’ very high CO2 concentration, “there is little to retain heat on the planet”.

This conclusion would appear to undermine the AGW claim CO2 levels are a planet’s temperature control knob.

So the summarizing question is this. Why is Earth’s CO2 concentration of 0.03% to 0.04% considered both determinative and dangerous as a climate control mechanism if (a) relative planetary warmth is largely dependent on atmospheric density and (b) even a 95% CO2 concentration on Mars effectively doesn’t retain planetary heat?

EU Parliamentarian Celebrates Passing Climate Emergency, But Then Hops On Jet To Frankfurt, And Berlin!

Europe’s hypocrite of the week

After celebrating at Twitter the passage of the symbolic climate emergency in the EU Parliament in Strasbourg on Thursday, parliamentarian Sven Giegold of the Green Party hops on a jet to Berlin!

We’ve all heard about the EU declaring a global climate emergency. Man has to profoundly alter its behavior if we are to have any hope of rescuing the planet.

Altering behaviour means not doing lots of convenient things like flying, eating meat, driving, heating with gas, coal or oil, consuming far less, taking vacations locally so as not to involve transportation by cruise ship, plane or automobile.

That’s what Europeans parliamentarians will be expecting of us.

Green hypocrites

It turns out that one of these parliamentarians is German Sven Giegold (50) of the Green Party. Last Thursday in Strasbourg Mr. Giegold voted in favor of the “climate emergency”, reports Germany’s Berliner Zeitung (BZ) here. Immediately he celebrated the Parliament’s decision on Twitter as an “important sign at the right time”.

Giegold’s tweet in English: “Yes! The European Parliament proclaims the #Climate crisis! An important sign at the right time. These are crucial years for future generations!

In his tweet, he also criticized the German CDU parliamentarians for not supporting the emergency declaration, adding: “Sadly, large sections of the Christian Democrats voted against. #Climate Emergency.”

238 kg of CO2 in a single afternoon

Giegold’s act alone of course comes as no surprise considering he’s from the Green Party. But the BZ then adds: “The problem: immediately after the meeting he got on the plane, flew to Frankfurt, from there to Berlin (CO2 footprint: 238 kilograms)”!

Obviously Giegold could not be bothered booking a train ride from Strasbourg to Berlin, which he demands of all other ordinary citizens.

Giegold’s glaring hypocrisy massively criticized

According to the BZ, the “EU Green was caught at Tegel Airport and promptly caught a massive firestorm of criticism on the net.”

Giegold’s grand act of hypocrisy was called “a certain double standard” by German CDU politician Sven Schulze, who hit back at Giegold’s criticism of CDU parliamentarians’ votes against the measure: “Very sad colleague @sven_giegold is rather your #hypocrisy. In the morning in the #Europaparlament you proclaim the #Climate emergency and in the afternoon you take the plane for the short distance from Frankfurt to Berlin. (Didn’t the #greens want to ban these short flights?)”.

“Had to be in Berlin at 6 pm”

Indeed the German Greens are pushing for a ban of short domestic flights. Giegold, though, seems to believe he’s above all that.

According to German tabloid Bild here, Giegold insisted that he had no choice but to fly. Bild writes: “At 6 pm he had an appointment in the Federal Council. Giegold said: ‘In the evening I had the obligation to be in Berlin – at 6 pm. The vote in Strasbourg was over at 12.45 pm. It was impossible with the train.'”

“International and European policymaking impossible without flying”

“The flight was purely work-related, and not for private purposes,” said the Green EU parliamentarian. He added: “International and European policymaking are impossible without air transport. It is important that European democracy works,” Giegold continued.

Wow.

Alarmist PIK Refuted, New Published Papers Call Claim Mass Migration Is Climate-Related “Misleading”…”Simplistic”

PIK under fire: Concept of a climate-caused mass migration not tenable

By

(German text translated/edited by P Gosselin)

We keep hearing again and again how climate change is one of the main causes of migration. But when you ask those affected whether the climate in their home country was the cause of flight, they usually look at you in awe and shake their heads violently: “There’s war, and you can no longer live there” is the recurring answer. “And the war is NOT caused by climate”.

In the propaganda battle, every means is justified. In 2018 the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) proudly reported that its employee Jacob Schewe was co-author of this World Bank report. After reading the opening thesis “Climate change has become one of the main drivers of emigration…,” the matter was settled.

Or was it really? Two recent papers show that this is not the case at all.

On November 26, 2019, a paper by Ingrid Boas from Wageningen University (Netherlands) and her colleagues appeared in “Nature Climate Change”. It clarifies that all such “myths” have been spread without any science so far. In the article, they call for the facts to be dealt with scientifically, and make it clear at the end:

Instead of having policy dictate the priorities of science, resulting in self-perpetuating false claims about climate-induced migration, the science policy process needs to allow careful and critical evidence-seeking research to indicate the main challenges ahead.”

Also another paper dismissing climate change causes mass migration has been published – by Nature. Abstract by Boas et al. in 2019 nature climate change:

Climate migration myths

Misleading claims about mass migration induced by climate change continue to surface in both academia and policy. This requires a new research agenda on ‘climate mobilities’ that moves beyond simplistic assumptions and more accurately advances knowledge of the nexus between human mobility and climate change.”

In a new paper (Mörner, 2019, expanding upon Mörner, 2017), photo evidence confirms sea levels in 5 studied equatorial regions have fallen by about 60 cm since the 17th century…and remained stable since the 1970s.

Another new study (Haryono et al., 2019) of sea level change in equatorial Indonesia also supplies photos of marine terrace biomarker evidence affirming sea levels were about 5 meters higher than they are today between 5000 to 3000 years before present, suggesting “it means it was warmer than the present day” back then.

Our Greening Planet… German Science Magazine: Satellite Imagery Proves “World’s Vegetation Expanding Since Decades”

An “unusual greening of the planet,” reports German science magazine Wissenschaft. “A paradox.”
Hat-tip: Die kalte Sonne

Dem seltsamen Ergrünen der Welt auf der Spur

Has been greening for 3 decades

While it is widely reported how the world’s rainforests are being chopped down, Wissenschaft reports, “Vegetation on earth has been expanding for decades, satellite data show.”

Yes, the planet is in fact greening, and this is embarrassing climate alarmists, who over the years managed to mislead much of the media and public into believing the planet has been “browning” and thirsting to death.

Confirmed by IPCC

“The opposite is the case: according to a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, satellite observations show a greening of vegetation over the past three decades in parts of Asia, Europe, South America, Central North America and Southeast Australia,” reports Wissenschaft magazine. “Although there are regions that would become browner, the bottom line is that there is a larger area on our planet that is greened than browned.”

Thanks to CO2 fertilization

For the welcome trend, scientists attribute the surprising development on “a mixture of factors”, foremost the recent increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration, which plants thrive on and humans have been mislead into believing is a “pollutant”.

“It is often forgotten that CO2 is not only a ‘problem’, but also a plant nutrient” that forms a crucial part of the “basis of the food chain,” reported Wissenschaft. In short: More atmospheric CO2 means more plant growth, and thus more food for more life.”

That has become an inconvenient fact for alarmists and climate activists, who insist life on the planet is dying.

Rainforests still threatened

Other suspected contributing factors include: nitrogen deposition, land-use changes and reforestation projects. But Wissenschaft warns that man-made greenery through agriculture and reforestation falls far short in terms of biotope quality, and so destruction of virgin rainforests remains a huge problem that requires real action.

Wissenschaft summarizes: “The bottom line, most experts say, is that from an ecological point of view the phenomenon of greening cannot replace the losses.”

CO2 lending a huge hand of support

The good thing: More CO2 in the atmosphere will certainly make the job of protecting vegetation and life far easier.

More Real Data Totally Contradict Fake Media… Show Scandinavia, Ireland NOT WARMING Over Past Decades

Share this...

By Kirye

and Pierre Gosselin

Global warming alarmists like to tell us the planet is warming faster and faster.

Yet, when we look objectively at the untampered data, we see this is not the case at all at many locations.  Today we look at the (untampered) data from the Japan Meteorology Agency (JMA) for some stations across northern Europe for the month of October.

According to global warming believers, winter is supposed to be coming later, and spring arriving earlier. So looking at the season transition month of October is interesting.

Ireland

At the JMA we find seven stations in Ireland that have October data going back sufficiently to 1994:

Data source: JMA

As the chart above shows, 6 of 7 stations in Ireland show October temperatures have a COOLING trend since 1994. How can winter be possibly coming later?

Finland

Next we have October data from the Scandinavian country of Finland, near the Arctic, where it’s supposedly warming rapidly and a it is the climate canary in a coal mine.

Data source: JMA

In Finland we have data from 6 stations, and they clearly show that there has not been any real warming at all over the past quarter century.

Isn’t it puzzling that we continue to hear reports from alarmists from every direction that the warming is speeding up? It stinks like some cynical Communist-grade propaganda, doesn’t it?

With all the fakes news we’ve been witnessing lately, nothing should surprise us anymore. We certainly need to be careful when it comes to believing these now infamously dubious media sources.

Norway

Next we move on to Scandinavian Norway, which is situated next to the North Atlantic, and so there oceanic cycles would have a truly profound effect.

(Note: I didn’t include stations which don’t have the data from 20 century.) Data source: JMA

Lo and behold: Six of 11 stations in Norway show October temperatures have had no warming trend since 1999.

Sweden

And not surprisingly, the story is the same in Sweden.

Here the 6 stations with sufficient JMA data were examined, and here as well there’s been no real warming to speak of since 1995.

Data source: JMA here.

Four of the 6 stations in Sweden show October temperatures have had no warming trend since 1995.

Where’s the climate emergency that hysterical alarmists are pushing to declare? There hasn’t been any since the IPCC issued it’s 2nd assessment report – a quarter of a century ago!

When are they going to finally stop this sham? This is all as bogus as the Trump impeachment proceedings – based on nothing except made-up rumors.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the same people who produced the phony Russia dossiers also would not think twice about producing a fake climate warming dossier.

Scientists Slam Free Science Speech Bullying… Dr. Benny Peiser: “We Are Living A Very Tragic Time” In Germany!

This past weekend in Munich, the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) held its 13th annual climate and energy conference. According to EIKE, over 200 attended, making it the most successful so far.

But as reported earlier, the EIKE conference organizers were forced to scramble at the last minute to find another location to hold the event after leftist green extremists had bullied the NH Munich Conference Center into cancelling the booking, before booting EIKE and attending scientists out onto the street.

Worse, the German civil apparatus did nothing to protect EIKE’s rights, turning a blind eye to the highly dubious breach of contract and intimidation of free speech.

In the end, EIKE managed to move the conference to a new location, which they chose to keep secret in order to hinder further attempts by the leftwing activists to disrupt and stifle free speech.

Die 13. Internationale Klima- und Energiekonferenz wurde erfolgreich beendet! Antifa und Klimakrakeeler produzierten sich als Volltrottel!

“Living in a very tragic time”

At conference a number of speakers commented on the unusual events.

For example, Dr. Benny Peiser commented (30:35): “The conference naturally will go down in history as being the first science congress since Nazi times that was attempted to be obstructed. And the problem of course is, as is the case in all authoritarian history, how a small minority begins and eventuially spreads like a fire to others. […] We are living in a very tragic time.”

Having moved from Germany to Great Britain 30 years ago, Dr. Peiser told how today he “can hardly recognize Germany any more.”

“Thirty years ago, freedom was a great word. Today it’s a curse word. Like George Orwell once said, ‘Freedom is the right to say what others don’t want to hear,”‘ Peiser reminded.

German law fears the leftists

Lord Christopher Monckton, Viscount of Brenchly also spoke (4:27:55) on the attempted shut down of the EIKE climate conference “by fascists calling themselves anti-fascists” and how the NH Munich Conference Center abruptly canceled – at the last minute – the contract to accommodate the EIKE conference. Monckton called the judge who refused to enforce the contract law “a coward”.

“He allowed the fascist bullies to frighten him into cancelling that venue,” Monckton said. “These are the people from whom the judge was frightened,” said Monckton, showing a slide of the leftist bullies.

How did the German media respond to the EIKE climate conference? As expected, the mainstream media pretty much ignored it totally.

SZ: “deniers”…”non-transparent ultra-libertarians” …”almost only men”

But the center-left Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) published a commentary by Philipp Bovermann. And, as expected, it was hardly flattering – consisting of the same worn out, low-intellect, name-calling polemic that sadly has been earning German ‘journalists’ awards lately.

The SZ’s Bovermann even referred to Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv as “a climate change denier”. And as is usual for the vast majority of today’s German mainstream journalists, Bovermann totally ignored the science. He wasn’t there for real science journalism, after all. His SZ screed obviously makes that clear. Rather he was there to produce recycled-plastic-grade political propaganda. No wonder we live in “very tragic times” in Germany.

New Study: 6500 Years Ago The Western Barents Sea Was Ice-Free And 10°C Warmer Than 2015

The Arctic’s western Barents Sea (Storfjordrenna) surface temperatures now range between 2-4°C. Sea ice persists in the region for 10 months of the year. A new study finds this same region was sea ice-free, 10°C warmer than today (13°C), and SSTs rapidly rose and fell by degrees C per century during the mid-Holocene.

The western Barents Sea surface temperatures oscillated around 3°C in 2015 according to a new study (Łacka et al., 2019).

Image Source: Łacka et al., 2019

During the Bølling-Allerød epoch 14,500 years ago, when CO2 concentrations were still in the 230 ppm range, Łacka et al., 2019 found the western Barents Sea surface temperatures to be comparable (2-4°C) to today.

From about 9000 to 3500 years ago, this same region’s temperatures rapidly (degrees Celsius per century) fluctuated between 3°C and 13°C. The latter temperature value – 10°C warmer than today – was achieved about 6500 years ago (265 ppm CO2).

Evidence also suggests this region of the Arctic was sea ice-free throughout most of the mid-Holocene. In contrast, today’s sea ice persists for all but August and September in the northern Barents Sea.

Increasingly Powerful Headwinds Ahead: Germany’s Wind Industry Faces Extinction …”Several 10,000 Jobs Lost “

Online site wind energy proponent site, Energiezukunft.eu here presents a commentary telling why Germany is seeing ever increasing resistance to wind energy projects and how the wind industry could be seeing the final nail in its coffin.

Behind the mounting resistance are hundreds of anti-wind farm citizens’ initiatives across the country, stricter rules for wind projects and powerful anti-wind bureaucrats now heading key government positions.

According to Energiezukunft.eu,(Energy Future.eu) the new German draft laws are also calling on wind farm operators “to participate in the costs of grid expansion”, a costly requirement that wind energy proponents say “could ruin the wind energy industry”.

“Actions in the Ministry of Economics show: This is being done deliberately.”

Wind running up against fierce citizens’ opposition

Once welcome with open arms by citizens in Europe, wind projects today are being met with fierce opposition as citizens have come to realize how wind parks horrendously blight the landscape, threaten endangered species, produce unhealthy infrasound and generate electricity only sporadically.

Actions speaking louder than words

While the German CDU/CSU/SPD grand coalition government openly preaches the virtues of changing over to green energies like wind and sun and that they are the future, their actions and proposals in reality speak tell us the opposite. The German government indeed seems to be ending the free ride that wind energy has enjoyed for more than 2 decades.

Energiezukunft.eu reports that the planned grid expansion participation regulation “could stifle the construction of new wind turbines in overloaded power grids such as those in northern Germany” and “would lead to incalculable costs for wind farm operators.”

Onshore wind parks are looking less attractive than ever.

Anti-wind citizens groups now a formidable force

Once ridiculed and often ignored, citizens’ initiatives against wind projects now “have great influence up to the highest circles” of federal ministries, Energiezukunft.eu acknowledges.

Wind energy proponent Energiezukunft.eu attacks the citizen initiatives, claiming their arguments “are often put forward under the guise of environmental protection.” Energiezukunft.eu then even claims wind turbines in fact protect species and the environment: “In addition, there is climate change, which severely disrupts and destroys the environment of the animals. The expansion of wind power would bring positive benefits here.”

Anti-wind officials in key positions

Energiezukunft.eu points out there is another major obstacle that the wind industry is facing in the future: high-level, anti-wind energy officials appointed to key positions, such as Stephanie von Ahlefeldt, head of the “Energy Policy – Electricity and Networks” department.

Because Ahlefeldt is now sitting at the levers of control, “She knows exactly which levers to pull in order to make a difference, and she is pulling all the levers at the same time,” Energiezukunft.eu warns.

Bleak future for German wind energy
Bright future for conservationists

The mounting obstacles against wind energy from citizens initiatives, stricter regulations and powerful anti-wind officials in key positions mean the future for wind energy development across Germany’s landscape looks bleaker than ever. This has real environmentalists celebrating.

Tens of thousands of wind jobs lost

The situation for the wind industry in Germany has been dismal for some two years. Energiezukunft.eu writes: “Several 10,000 jobs have already been lost in the wind energy sector” and “many thousands more jobs are at risk as a result of the planned regulations.”

Experts: Europe’s “Climate-Neutrality” Attempt Risks Catastrophe…Warn: “Social And Economic Disaster”

Share this...

Tweet about this on Twitter
Twitter

A recent video published by the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation features experts warning that Europe’s current path to a renewable energy powered society is hurting the poor and that green energy proponents are suffering from delusion.

President-elect of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, a career bureaucrat has committed to making Europe “the world’s first climate-neutral continent”.

Delusion in Brussels

However, the lofty plans, supported by most of Europe’s ruling parties, show unmistakable signs of reality-detachment as worker unrest, discontent and tensions spread across France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany. Yet, rather than taking all the strife seriously, Brussels prefers to deny it and blindly charge ahead with its virtuous green energy obsessions.

The GWPF video wonders if the experiment and unrealistic ideas about renewable energies will end up being “unsustainable policymaking”.

Experts warn that the odds that it will are high, but the pompous eurocrats are too obstinate to acknowledge it.

Expanding energy poverty

Already energy poverty has grown to potentially explosive social dimensions, warns Dr. Mikko Paunio of Finland. In some places heat has become so expensive that people are cutting trees down to keep warm.

Energy expert Professor Fritz Vahrenholt warns how Germany is “nearing the poverty front in a social and economic disaster”.

Brussels convinced green means prosperity

But Europe remains in denial, insisting that green energies are the economic solution for Europe’s future, and refuses to admit that the high energy costs are severely burdening the economy. “Europe is showing the way towards a safe and prosperous low carbon future for our planet and economy,” a green energy propaganda video insists.

Citizens rejecting, protesting

But reality tells a different story. Many countries in Europe aren’t going to meet their 2020 targets, and green parties in a number of countries have slipped as citizens have begun standing up to the hardships brought on by carbon reductions. There’s growing rejection of green policies especially among the poor. But Europe refuses to believe it, and pledges to keep pressing ahead, even as protests on the streets intensify.

Doomed to crash

What is it going to take before Europe’s leaders leave lala-land and get back to reality? What wake-up call is it going to take to get the slef deluded eurocrats to see the economic hardship and energy insecurity their policies are inflicting?

Prof. Vahrenholt fears it’ll take a real shock: “I’m quite sure this will change. First we will see the negative consequences of the Energiewende [German transition to green energies]. Let there be one day or two days of blackout, and they will see what they have done.” He adds that deindustrialization also will not work: “It’s a matter of two or three years when this will crash.”

Scientists Cite Uncertainty, Error, Model Deficiencies To Affirm A Non-Detectable Human Climate Influence

Share this...

Tweet about this on Twitter
Twitter

Observational uncertainty, errors, biases, and estimation discrepancies in longwave radiation may be 100 times larger than the entire accumulated influence of CO2 increases over 10 years. This effectively rules out clear detection of a potential human influence on climate.

The anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hypothesis rides on the fundamental assumption that perturbations in the Earth’s energy budget – driven by changes in downward longwave radiation from CO2 — are what cause climate change.

According to one of the most frequently referenced papers advancing the position that CO2 concentration changes (and downward longwave radiation perturbations) drive surface temperature changes, Feldman et al. (2015) concluded there was a modest 0.2 W/m² forcing associated with CO2 rising by 22 ppm per decade.

Again, that’s a total CO2 influence of 0.2 W/m² over ten years.

In contrast, analyses from several new papers indicate the uncertainty and error values in downwelling (and outgoing) longwave radiation in cloudless environments are more than 100 times larger than 0.2 W/m².

In other words, it is effectively impossible to clearly discern a human influence on climate.

1.  Kim and Lee, 2019   Measurement errors of outgoing longwave radiation (OLR) reach 11 W/m², more than 50 times larger than total CO2 forcing over 10 years. Cloud optical thickness (COT) and water vapor have “the greatest effect” on OLR – an influence of 2.7 W/m². CO2 must rise to 800 ppm to impute an influence of 1 W/m².

Image Source: Kim and Lee, 2019

2. Kato et al., 2018   Downward longwave radiation (DLR) responds to variability in water vapor and cloud. (CO2 isn’t mentioned in the paper as a factor influencing DLR.) CO2 rose by 20 ppm during 2005-2014, but total DLR was negative (-0.2 W/m²) during this decade, insinuating rising CO2 had no net warming climate impact. Uncertainty in DLR is 6 W/m² per year, whereas CO2 forcing is just 0.02 W/m² per year – 300 times smaller.

Image Source: Kato et al., 2018

3. Wild et al., 2019   Observations vs. model bias/discrepancy ranges in downward longwave radiation span between 22 W/m² to 26 W/m², which is 120 times larger than CO2’s total influence over 10 years.

Image Source: Wild et al., 2019
4. Stephens et al., 2019   “Gross assumptions” must be made about cloud physics due to a lack of observations. Sources of error in models yield an uncertainty of ~80%. Models of cloud processes are 3-5 times discrepant from observations.
Image Source: Stephens et al., 2019
5. Frank, 2019    “An AGW signal … will never emerge from climate noise.” Cloud forcing “error is ±114 times larger than the annual average increase in GHG [greenhouse gas] forcing.” “A temperature signal from anthropogenic CO2 emissions (if any) cannot … be evidenced in climate observables.”
