New Study: The 2016-2020 Antarctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Traced To Natural Processes

New Study: The 2016-2020 Antarctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Traced To Natural Processes

Share this…FacebookTwitterDefying climate models, the sea ice surrounding Antarctica steadily increased during the 37 years from 1979-2015. Even after many decades of studying climate processes and a supposed “consensus” that hemispheric-scale sea ice should decline in a rising CO2 concentration world, climate models cannot simulate the causative mechanisms for sea ice variability. “Over recent decades […]

A Warmer Climate, Less Sea Ice, Sea Levels 5-16 Meters Higher Than Today An 'Optimum' For Penguins

A Warmer Climate, Less Sea Ice, Sea Levels 5-16 Meters Higher Than Today An ‘Optimum’ For Penguins

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study (Gao et al., 2022) suggests Antarctica’s sea levels (Ross Sea) were more than 16 meters higher than today ~5,000 years ago and still 5.5 meters higher ~3,000 years ago. Penguins thrived with the warmer climate and diminished sea ice. Image Source: Gao et al., 2022 “Since 1.5 kyr BP, with further […]

Leading German Scientists: Record Low February 2022 Antarctic Sea Ice Statistically Has "No Particular Relevance"

Leading German Scientists: Record Low February 2022 Antarctic Sea Ice Statistically Has “No Particular Relevance”

Share this…FacebookTwitterSilencing the alarm: After barely beating sea ice the lows recorded in 1993, 1997 and 2017, German scientists say Antarctic record low of 2022 statistically has “no particular relevance”.  The most recent and outstanding German language Klimaschau video evaluates the Antarctic sea ice trend over the satellite measurement period, i.e. since 1978. Two press […]

The Southwest Atlantic To West Antarctic Peninsula Region Has Been Cooling Since The 1990s

The Southwest Atlantic To West Antarctic Peninsula Region Has Been Cooling Since The 1990s

Share this…FacebookTwitterScientists continue to document a sea surface cooling in the vast waters above Antarctica. As recently as a few thousand years ago the Sub-Antarctic (South Georgia) region was 5 to 10°C warmer than it is today (Xia et al., 2020). Image Source: Xia et al., 2020 About 1,000 years ago (the Medieval Warm Period) […]

Franklin’s Ill-Fated Expedition Contradicts Dr. Michael Mann’s Hockey Stick Temperature Reconstruction

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe Franklin Expedition’s greatest enemy: The Little Ice Age By Die kalte Sonne (Translation/editing by P. Gosselin) The topic of “exploring the Earth’s polar regions” is topical again now. This is not only shown by spectacular expeditions such as the MOSAIC Expedition 2019, but also researchers recently discovered the Endurance, the ship of South […]

Ireland, Sweden Show No January Warming Since 1988. Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Now More Than 40 Years Stable!

Ireland, Sweden Show No January Warming Since 1988. Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Now More Than 40 Years Stable!

Share this…FacebookTwitterCharts by Kirye Text by Pierre The January mean temperature data from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA )are now available for Sweden and Ireland. Also below we look at Antarctic sea ice extent. We begin by looking at the trends from 5 stations in Sweden, for which the JMA has enough data to allow […]

Hundreds More Papers Published In 2021 Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarm

Share this…FacebookTwitterIn 2021, several hundred more scientific papers were published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise serve to question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media sources. These scientific papers affirm the […]

NASA Data On Global Sea Ice Area Shows A Growth Equal To The Size Of Belgium Since 1982!

Share this…FacebookTwitter Global Sea Ice Area Data analyst Zoe Phin just posted some interesting, surprising results on global sea ice area. Data sources like the National Snow and Ice Data Center show global sea ice has been” drastically decreasing for a long time” and so we need to panic and overhaul the entire carbon economy. We […]

New Study: Modelers Got Aerosols All Wrong...CO2 Climate Sensitivity Likely Another 0.4°C Overstated!

New Study: Modelers Got Aerosols All Wrong…CO2 Climate Sensitivity Likely Another 0.4°C Overstated!

Share this…FacebookTwitterDie kalte Sonne reports on a new aerosol study by Liu et al. The results are a major blow to the high greenhouse-gas climate sensitivity modelers. IPCC scientists have a favorite wild card they often use to explain serious model discrepancies: aerosols. Mysterious cooling events in the past are often explained away by aerosols […]

Antarctic Temperatures Were 'Up To 5°C Above Modern' From 12,000–2,000 Years BP

Antarctic Temperatures Were ‘Up To 5°C Above Modern’ From 12,000–2,000 Years BP

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study indicates that from 4,000 years ago until as recently as 1,500 years ago, or when CO2 levels ranged between 255 and 270 ppm, lake levels in Antarctica were as high as 60 meters above today’s levels. This coincided with “warmer-than-modern paleoclimate throughout the Holocene.”  During the last 2,000 years, Antarctica’s temperatures […]
