New Paper: Global Warming Leading To HIMALAYAN COOLING, Preventing Glacial Melt!

New Paper: Global Warming Leading To HIMALAYAN COOLING, Preventing Glacial Melt!

At the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) YouTube account, the young EIKE climate lady delivers the latest climate video, focusing on the Himalayas, which, as some of you may recall, would go ice-free by 2030, according to Prof. Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber. The video features a paper by Salerno et al, 2023: “Local cooling and […]

Antarctica Is Colder, Icier Now Than Any Time In 5000 Years. The Last Warm Period Was 1000 Years Ago.

Antarctica Is Colder, Icier Now Than Any Time In 5000 Years. The Last Warm Period Was 1000 Years Ago.

More evidence emerges that Antarctica has undergone rapid glacier and sea ice expansion in recent centuries, in line with the long-term and recent Antarctic cooling trend. West Antarctica’s mean annual surface temperatures cooled by more than -1.8°C (-0.93°C per decade) from 1999-2018 (Zhang et al., 2023). Not just West Antarctica, but most of the continent […]

New Study: Greenland's Ice Stream Flow Patterns Change Internally, 'Spontaneously' Within Centuries

New Study: Greenland’s Ice Stream Flow Patterns Change Internally, ‘Spontaneously’ Within Centuries

Ice flowed out of the interior of the Greenland ice sheet at much stronger rates and with much greater variability than today throughout the Holocene – or until about 2,000 years ago. New research (Jansen et al., 2024) has determined Greenland’s ice streams vary according to internal processes, and not necessarily due to external changes […]

The Elevation Of The Early Holocene's W. Antarctic Ice Sheet Once Plunged 480 Meters In 200 Years

The Elevation Of The Early Holocene’s W. Antarctic Ice Sheet Once Plunged 480 Meters In 200 Years

Retreat rates for the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) were massive during the Early Holocene, when CO2 concentrations were low and stable (~265 ppm), dwarfing any retreat rates witnessed in the modern era. New research published in Nature Geoscience (Grieman et al., 2024) assesses the elevation of West Antarctica’s ice sheet fell by ~480 m within […]

Climate Researchers Blame Himalayan Glaciers "Melting Much More Slowly" On Warming!

Climate Researchers Blame Himalayan Glaciers “Melting Much More Slowly” On Warming!

New paper in ‘Nature’: Himalayan glaciers melting much more slowly than expected, researchers blame warming! Image: NASA (public domain) Germany’s online Frankfurter Rundschau (FR) reports on “baffled scientists” and how the Himalayan glaciers are cooling, yet insist the reason is global warming. The FR reports: This development is unusual because the Himalayan glaciers have continuously […]

Research Finds Higher Likelihood Of Extreme Snowfall. And: Greening Africa

Research Finds Higher Likelihood Of Extreme Snowfall. And: Greening Africa

Higher likelihood of extreme snowfall in the French Alps in coming decades. And, greening Africa Hat-tip: Klimanachrichten Global warming is often cited as having a negative impact on snow and ice melt in cold regions, yet new research published in The Cryosphere has suggested that extreme snowfall events may be a feature of some locations at higher latitudes and […]

Greenland Ice Melt Has Added Just 1.2 Centimeters To Sea Levels Since 1992

Greenland Ice Melt Has Added Just 1.2 Centimeters To Sea Levels Since 1992

The magnitude problem persists for peddlers of Climate Alarm. During the last interglacial (LIG) 127-119k years ago atmospheric CO2 was said to be 275 ppm, and yet the global sea levels were 6-9 m higher than they are today. The higher sea levels were due primarily to the LIG’s substantially warmer temperatures, which meant that […]

Greenland's 2022-'23 Ice Coverage Well Above 1981-2010 Average Despite 'Global Boiling' Rhetoric

Greenland’s 2022-’23 Ice Coverage Well Above 1981-2010 Average Despite ‘Global Boiling’ Rhetoric

Since the early 2000s there has been no net change in the Greenland ice sheet mean annual surface temperature, as well as no net change in melt extent percentage. Greenland’s ice coverage was, for most of this year (September 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023), observed to be significantly above the long-term (1981-2010) climate average. […]

New Study: Maps Of Ice Mass Loss Show Geothermal Heat Flow Explains 2003-2019 Antarctic Ice Melt

New Study: Maps Of Ice Mass Loss Show Geothermal Heat Flow Explains 2003-2019 Antarctic Ice Melt

There is a “direct link” between the location of origin for recent ice melt in Antarctica and geothermal heat flow. High geothermal heat flow (GHF) is mostly why Antarctic ice melts, not “atmospheric and ocean forcing,” which is what has been commonly thought until recently (Haeger et al., 2023). Even though atmospheric CO2 is well-mixed, […]

Thwaites 'Doomsday' Glacier Narrative Collapses...Total Melt Raises Sea Levels 1-2 mm, Not 3048 mm

Thwaites ‘Doomsday’ Glacier Narrative Collapses…Total Melt Raises Sea Levels 1-2 mm, Not 3048 mm

“[N]o numerical modeling work has shown that Thwaites Glacier is currently undergoing an irreversible retreat.” – Gudmundsson et al., 2023 It was only months ago that mainstream US journalists published articles claiming the Thwaites “Doomsday” Glacier has only “a few more years” until it collapses into the sea (ABC News, CBS News). This “spine-chilling” catastrophe […]

New Study Destroys 'Doomsday Glacier' Narrative...Today's Ice 8 Times 𝑇ℎ𝑖𝑐𝑘𝑒𝑟 Than Last 8000 Years

New Study Destroys ‘Doomsday Glacier’ Narrative…Today’s Ice 8 Times 𝑇ℎ𝑖𝑐𝑘𝑒𝑟 Than Last 8000 Years

Scientists have determined there is no measured data to “indicate thicker than present ice after 4ka” at a West Antarctic study site near the Thwaites “Doomsday” Glacier. Any ice melt observed today is thus “reversible”… and natural. The Thwaites, Pine Island, and Pope Glaciers in the Amundsen Sea region of West Antarctica are all situated […]

Belief Of Steady 5300 Year Climate Unravels: Ötzi Got Exposed “Again and Again”

Changing Holocene climate…was never steady Researchers say the 5300 year old Ötzi corpse didn’t remain covered by ice 5300 years long, but in fact was exposed again and again! Figure 1. Orthophoto of the findspot in the Tisenjoch (1) and other locations mentioned in the text (2: Kesselwandferner, 3: Weißseespitze, 4: Hintereisferner, 5: Langgrubenjoch, 6: […]
