Duh! Oceans Drive Climate (Not CO2), Says New Nature Study

More evidence of the obvious now revealed in a recent Nature article from research conducted by the IFM GEOMAR and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Believe it or not, they are slowly finding out that the oceans play a role in climate. Once again climate scientists, who often claim the science is settled, are running into […]

German “Green” Biogas Plants Producing Deadly Botulism – “Could Be Catastrophic To Wildlife”

German sporting and dog magazine Wild und Hund reports that thousands of domestic and wild animals are falling ill from tainted waste from green “climate-friendly” biogas plants, which is then used as an agricultural fertilizer in fields. Hat tip: Dirk Maxeiner here (in a commentary titled: “Gross negligence in green”). Wild und Hund has put out a press release […]

Schellnhuber: Carrying Capacity Of The Planet Is Less Than A Billion – Earth Will Explode With 9.4 Billion in 2050

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, German architect of the masterplan, dubbed the Great Transformation, warned back in 2009 that unless the world heeds his message, 6 billion people would perish. This was reported in the New York Times here, which wrote:  Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, the director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, said […]

Skeptics And Alarmists Clash At Climate Conference – German Scientists Call PIK Scientific Position “Weak”

This is a look into a climate science debate conference between skeptics and warmists that took place last month in Potsdam, Germany. The skeptics are scientists from the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) and the warmists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK). In October 2010 PIK Director Prof. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber […]

Edenhofer Expects Kyoto Successor To Be Buried In Durban! Bemoans Cost Uncertainties Of Renewables

The online Der Spiegel here reports on Ottmar Edenhofer, who once admitted that reducing CO2 emissions was really all about redistributing global wealth. Edenhofer is a UN economist and researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and is responsible delivering the economic arguments for conducting the Great Transformation to a decarbonized society. How […]

Flagship German Political Daily: “A Green Tyranny Is Growing In Germany – Losing Patience With Democracy”

The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Germany’s flagship political daily, has a stinging commentary on the “growing green tyranny” in Germany. Its piece titled The Affectionate Ecological Dictatorship takes aim at the Potsdam Institute For Climate Impact Research (PIK), headed by Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, NASA’s James Hansen, and German policymakers. The usually staid and measured FAZ uses a tone that is […]

Alternative Energy – Solar Power

By Ed Caryl Can we provide enough energy to power the world using alternative sources, such as wind, solar, or bio-fuels? This is a question that has largely been ignored, in hopes that the answer will prove to be in the positive. This article is the first in a series, taking the question one technology […]

Elitist Power – And Submission To Will

Clearly there is a pattern. We’ve seen it with Bill Clinton, allegedly Al Gore, and now we have the IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn of the Socialist Party France.They are all proponents of a powerful, domineering state that demands citizens bend to its will. Submit to the state and all shall be well, the statists tell us. It’s […]

Edenhofer’s Plan For Sustainable Wealth Destruction – Wants $12 Trillion For A Few Tenths Of A Degree Of Cooling

Question: A man sitting next to a radiator in his living room wants to feel 0.2°C cooler. What should he do? a) Move his chair a couple centimeters further away from the radiator, or b) Go out and pay $5000 for a completely new heating system from a shady manufacturer who promises it will be […]

Urban Warming – Where Does It Come From?

By Ed Caryl My last article, Anthropogenic Global Warming is Real (But It’s Not From CO2, contained the statement: “No one (to my knowledge) has researched what part of the global temperature rise is due to energy use. All energy use ultimately goes to heat. This is what causes the heat islands.” This raised eyebrows in […]

Thickening Arctic Ice Is Getting Thinner, Say Alfred Wegener Institute And University of Alberta

The Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Ocean Research of the Helmholtz Association here reports that its Polar 5 research plane, loaded with measurement instruments, has just completed a 6-week expedition over the high Arctic, along with 2 other planes from the European and American space agencies ESA and NASA, to measure, among other things, the thickness of […]

Dennis Rodman Climate – Science Communication Hits Rock Bottom

I call this video here the latest attempt by warmists to assert science by public opinion (h/t  Climate Depot). Kind of like: “If we get more young people to believe it and sway public opinion in our favor, then the science will be settled. Let’s start a campaign against the skeptics, get right in their face, and call them […]
