Tree Remains Found Buried Beneath Today's Glaciers Date To The Warmer-Than-Today Medieval Warm Period

Tree Remains Found Buried Beneath Today’s Glaciers Date To The Warmer-Than-Today Medieval Warm Period

A new study (Kullman, 2021) suggests ~9000-year-old tree remains can be found buried in “currently empty snow hollows and glacier cirques” at elevations 600-700 m higher than where trees can grow today, implying a >3°C warmer Early Holocene climate. Treelines were still 75-100 m higher during the Medieval Warm Period…and even during the 15th and […]

Norway Glaciers Show Surprisingly Small Retreat During 2020..."Nigardsbreen Glacier Actually Grew"

Norway Glaciers Show Surprisingly Small Retreat During 2020…”Nigardsbreen Glacier Actually Grew”

As the globe has warmed since the end of the Little Ice Age, alarms concerning retreating glaciers have been sounded worldwide. The reason for the warming remains hotly disputed: alarmists blame it on manmade CO2 while skeptics say natural factors are just as much at play, if not more so. Image: Norwegian glace, for illustration […]

5 New Studies:  High Mountain Asia Glaciers Are Advancing, Surging...And This Is A 'Natural Phenomenon'

5 New Studies: High Mountain Asia Glaciers Are Advancing, Surging…And This Is A ‘Natural Phenomenon’

Glacier surges of 100s of meters within mere months have been occurring throughout High Mountain Asia (the Karakoram region, especially) for decades, even centuries. It’s the Karakoram “anomaly”, and it’s thought to be “natural”. So why are the regions where glaciers are retreating thought to be responding to unnatural climate changes? The advancing glaciers of […]

Number Of Studies Show Glaciers Internationally Were Smaller In Recent Past Than Today!

Number Of Studies Show Glaciers Internationally Were Smaller In Recent Past Than Today!

Former Iceland Prime Minister fed up with climate tourism: Glaciers used to be smaller than today By Die kalte Sonne [German text translated by P. Gosselin] Many glaciers are currently shrinking, as they have always done in the past when the climate warmed up. What’s the news on the glacier front? In August 2019, the […]

Austrian Weather Agency: "Glaciers Have Recovered" Due To A "Snowy Winter"...Record June Snow Depth!

Austrian Weather Agency: “Glaciers Have Recovered” Due To A “Snowy Winter”…Record June Snow Depth!

Austrian ZAMG national weather service here reports that the “glaciers have recovered” in the Alps due to a “snowy winter”. Image: foto.webcam.eu “Strongest growth in 20 years” ZAMG confirmed that last winter, the glaciers in the Hohe Tauern have grown more strongly than they have for 20 years. Austria’s ZAMG meteorological institute reminds, however, that the figures […]

Greenland Has Been Cooling In Recent Years - 26 Of Its 47 Largest Glaciers Now Stable Or Gaining Ice

Greenland Has Been Cooling In Recent Years – 26 Of Its 47 Largest Glaciers Now Stable Or Gaining Ice

A new analysis of recent trends for the Greenland ice sheet reveals that since 2012 there has been an abrupt slowing of melt rates and a trend reversal to cooling and ice growth. • In 2018, 26 of Greenland’s 47 largest glaciers were either stable or grew in size. • Overall, the 47 glaciers advanced […]

New Paper: Sweden Glaciers GAINED Mass From 1970-2001 After Rapid 1920s-'60s Retreat

New Paper: Sweden Glaciers GAINED Mass From 1970-2001 After Rapid 1920s-’60s Retreat

Glaciers in Sweden melted ~7 times faster during the 1920s to 1960s than from 1970 to 2015. Image Source: Holmlund and Holmlund, 2019 Image Source: Holmlund and Holmlund, 2019 “The strongest melt in the mass change curve […] occurs between the 1930s and 1960s, with the beginning of this negative trend occurring in the early […]

The Discovery Of Tree Trunks Under Glaciers 600 Meters Atop Today's Treeline Date To The Last ICE AGE

The Discovery Of Tree Trunks Under Glaciers 600 Meters Atop Today’s Treeline Date To The Last ICE AGE

Tree Trunk Conundrum Image Source: Ganyushkin et al., 2018 Between 60 and 40 thousand years ago, during the middle of the last glacial, atmospheric CO2 levels hovered around 200 ppm – half of today’s concentration. Tree remains dated to this period have been discovered 600-700 meters atop the modern treeline in the Russian Altai mountains.  […]

Arctic Glaciers ADVANCED 16 km During 2008-2016 In A Region That Was 6°C Warmer ~9,000 Years Ago

Arctic Glaciers ADVANCED 16 km During 2008-2016 In A Region That Was 6°C Warmer ~9,000 Years Ago

Newly published science indicates glaciers in the High Arctic Svalbard/Barents Sea region have rapidly advanced in the last decade — surging 16 kilometers since 2008, which is the greatest ice growth since 1890. About 8,000 to 10,000 years ago, this region was 6°C warmer than today. Consequently, the region’s glaciers were much smaller (or non-existent) at that […]

New Paper: 'Extremely High' TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert 'Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers'

New Paper: ‘Extremely High’ TSI, El Niño Episodes Since 1970s Exert ‘Robust Control Over Himalayan Glaciers’

Scientists Rebuke Claims Of Human Control Over Glacier Mass Balance “Natural climate variability still emerges as the key deciding element governing the Himalayan glacier mass balances.” – Shekhar et al., 2017 Yet another new paper has challenged to IPCC-endorsed conclusion that the Himalayan glaciers are melting rapidly due to anthropogenic climate change, and that these […]

12 New Papers: North Atlantic, Pacific, And Southern Oceans Are Cooling As Glaciers Thicken, Gain Mass

12 New Papers: North Atlantic, Pacific, And Southern Oceans Are Cooling As Glaciers Thicken, Gain Mass

Graph Source Duchez et al., 2016 Contrary to expectations, climate scientists continue to report that large regions of the Earth have not been warming in recent decades. According to Dieng et al. (2017), for example, the global oceans underwent a slowdown, a pause, or even a slight cooling trend during 2003 to 2013.  This  undermines […]

Observations Show No Warming Trend, Mostly Stable Glaciers In The Himalayas...Contradicting IPCC's 'Fake News'

Observations Show No Warming Trend, Mostly Stable Glaciers In The Himalayas…Contradicting IPCC’s ‘Fake News’

IPCC Intentionally Uses Catastrophic Non-Science To Incite Policy Action “The most striking feature of the present reconstruction is the absence of any warming trend in the 20th century”     — Yadav et al., 1997 Bhattacharyya and Chaudhary, 2003 In 2007, IPCC Claimed The Himalayan Region Has Been Warming So Rapidly Its Glaciers Would ‘Disappear’ By […]
