Catastrophic Turbine Failures, Targeted Blackouts Plague German Power As Wind, Solar Energy Increase
By P Gosselin on 31. December 2015
Thanks in large part to wind and solar energy, not only have German electricity prices paid by consumers skyrocketed over the past years, thus casting a large number of homes into home fuel poverty, but also the supply itself is rapidly becoming precarious and unreliable. One problem is the stabilization of the power grid in […]
Tremendous Cooling Of Northern Hemisphere Sea Surface Temperatures …Sharp Spell Of Global Cooling Ahead?
By P Gosselin on 30. December 2015
Over the past months we’ve witnessed a powerful El Niño, a Pacific oceanic phase that brings warm sea surface temperatures along the equatorial Pacific. This El Niño has made 2015 global temperatures among the highest on the satellite record. But not only has the equatorial surface Pacific been warm, so has a vast part of […]
Now It’s Global Cooling! German Weekly Warns Scientists See “Mini Ice Age Coming In Just A Few Years”
By P Gosselin on 29. December 2015
The recent focus on (and hysteria over) the warm Christmas weather we saw over the North American east coast and Europe apparently is already fading and giving way to far more serious concerns – like the snow bowl blizzard of normally sunny El Paso, for example. Naturally it’s just silly to use one weather event […]
Top Climate Activist Lashes Out At Germany’s No-Result Climate Policy: “A First-Class Political Fraud”!
By P Gosselin on 28. December 2015
Despite all the big talk by German political leaders on cutting back CO2 and fighting climate change, the country’s actions speak far greater volumes. Germany’s CO2 reductions over the past few years have not gone anywhere – except up – despite two consecutive much warmer than normal weather years. These are the results coming from Germany’s […]
Joe Bastardi Blasts Claims 2015 Christmas Was US Warmest: “Ridiculous” … “Lies And Deception” …”False Missives”!

UPDATE: Tony Heller reminds us (and Bernie Sanders) how warm it was back in 1951 on New Years Eve: https://twitter.com/Goddardde =========================================================== At his always interesting Saturday Summary at Weatherbell Analytics here, veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi confirms what Tony Heller’s Real Science posted a couple of days ago: December 24, 1955 was warmer than the impressively […]

Today I have a short but interesting report from Spiegel.de here concerning the performance of North Sea wind parks, which were once seen as the future backbone of Germany’s energy supply. Unfortunately things are not working out that way at all. Photo right: Bard Delivering only a tiny fraction of rated capacity Spiegel writes that Germany now […]

Wishing everybody Mele Kalikimaka! This wonderful mild Christmas in some areas is in large part a gift from this year’s “El Nino” – so enjoy it! PS: I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all readers, alarmist or skeptic, for making 2015 another successful year at NTZ!
New Comprehensive Map By Scientists Confirms Medieval Warm Period Was Real And Global, Climate Models Faulty
By P Gosselin on 23. December 2015
One of the biggest obstacles global warming alarmists have had to deal with is the inconvenient existence of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP), as there are reams of literature showing that this period was as warm or even warmer than today. Photo right: Fritz Vahrenholt (Die kalte Sonne) Yet, a number of global warming activists and alarmist […]

The human memory is not very reliable at calculating trends from the past. This has something to do with extraordinary events often crowding out uneventful ones – and standing out. As time progresses the extraordinary events tend to get overly weighted and distort the memory. Balz Rittmeyer and Marc Fehr at this site here present […]

Leading German Weather Site ‘Donnerwetter’ Warns Of “Fascist Thinking In Climate Protection And Ecology”
By P Gosselin on 19. December 2015
I expect this piece appearing at one of Germany’s leading weather forecasting sites, donnerwetter.de, to be controversial and that there could even be efforts to force the site to take it down. The commentary points out that some of the main elements of today’s environmental and climate movement sweeping across Europe were and are common […]
