One New Coral Reef Study Wipes Out Four Climate Alarm Narratives In One Fell Swoop

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterCorals thrive in multiple-degrees-warmer-than-today waters and their growth is stunted in cooler environments. The warnings peddled by climate alarmists often characterize Earth’s 500 billion corals as critically endangered by modern global warming. But the science itself says corals have been and continue thriving in the Current Warm Period – just as they have in […]

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

Share this...

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 […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterA German analysis finds that the threatening scenarios about the imminent death of all coral reefs in a recent study cannot be justified.  ==================================================== The corals off East Africa, doomed to extinction? By Frank Bosse Kalte Sonne (Translated, edited by P. Gosselin) An agency report startles readers: “All coral reefs in the western Indian […]

Great Barrier Reef Warming, Coral Bleaching Driven By Cloud Radiative Forcing, Not Humans

Great Barrier Reef Warming, Coral Bleaching Driven By Cloud Radiative Forcing, Not Humans

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterFor decades Great Barrier Reef (GBR) warming and coral bleaching have often been assumed to be driven by human greenhouse gas emissions and/or El Niño events. But a new study finds a much larger and more robust correlation between natural cloud cover modulation of solar radiation, shallow-water warming, and bleaching. It has taken over […]

GBR, Indian Ocean, South China Sea Corals Have Experienced No Obvious Modern Warming

GBR, Indian Ocean, South China Sea Corals Have Experienced No Obvious Modern Warming

Share this…FacebookTwitterNew temperature reconstructions using coral skeletons as proxies reveal there has been no apparent net warming in the Great Barrier Reef, central Indian Ocean, and South China Sea since the 19th century – or even in recent decades. Coral skeletons can be used as proxies to reconstruct 1870s-present sea surface temperatures “throughout the Great […]

New Study: Coral Bleaching 'Repeatedly Occurred' Throughout The Warmer-Than-Today Mid-Holocene

New Study: Coral Bleaching ‘Repeatedly Occurred’ Throughout The Warmer-Than-Today Mid-Holocene

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterMid-Holocene South China Sea maximum temperatures were ~3.5°C warmer (33.5°C vs. today’s 29.9°C) about 5000 yrs ago, when corals experienced an “optimum coral growth period”. There were “numerous coral bleaching episodes” even when temperatures weren’t as high, as coral bleaching is naturally occurring. Key points from a  new study (Wang et al., 2021) that […]

Alarmism Dies In The Great Barrier Reef As New Study Documents Reef Growth Since The 1970s

Alarmism Dies In The Great Barrier Reef As New Study Documents Reef Growth Since The 1970s

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study affirms coral reefs grow when seas are warm and rising. Growth “shuts off” during colder, falling sea level periods. Consequently, the Great Barrier Reef has experienced growth in the last 150 years – especially in recent decades. During the Last Glacial Maximum (~30,000 to 15,000 years ago), when Great Barrier Reef […]

When Exposed To Natural, Long-Term Extreme 'Ocean Acidification', Coral And Urchin 'Persist' And Even 'Thrive'

When Exposed To Natural, Long-Term Extreme ‘Ocean Acidification’, Coral And Urchin ‘Persist’ And Even ‘Thrive’

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterMarine species subjected to high CO2 extremes – 8,891 to 95,000 ppm – in their natural environments may not be adversely affected. They may even “thrive”. Earlier this year we highlighted a study that says coral reefs “thrive” near seafloor volcanic vents where CO2 concentrations reach 60,000 to 95,000 ppm. Image Source: PHYS.ORG Urchins basking […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterThough it’s believed the 130 ppm increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration since 1750 has caused the ocean waters to “acidify”, on a daily basis 50-380°C metallic acid enriched by CO2 concentrations reaching 60,000 to 95,000 ppm pours through seafloor vents. Nearby coral reefs “thrive” in these high-CO2 conditions. Image Source: PHYS.ORG 50 times more […]

4 New Papers, One Alarm-Dispelling Conclusion: Future Sea Level Rise May NOT Threaten Islands After All

4 New Papers, One Alarm-Dispelling Conclusion: Future Sea Level Rise May NOT Threaten Islands After All

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterAs reported in 4 separately-published papers, scientists have discovered a mechanism whereby islands can build themselves up naturally, thwarting the threat of sea level rise.  Tuck et al. (2019) affirm the “implications of island building are profound, as it will offset existing scenarios of dramatic increases in island flooding.” Earlier this year, Duvat (2019) […]
