Magnitude Of Recent Surface Solar Radiation Forcing Over US Is Tens Of Times Greater Than From CO2

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterOver the US, the modest change in cloud cover from 1996-2019 predominantly drove the +11.77 W/m² surface solar radiation forcing during 1996-2012 (then -2.35 W/m² from 2013-2019). These “brightening” and “dimming” magnitudes easily overwhelm the values associated with an annual 2 to 2.5 ppm rise in CO2 forcing (0.2 W/m² per decade). When cloud […]

42,000 Years Ago A Massive Geomagnetic Shift Plunged A Warm Earth Into An Ice Age…But CO₂ Didn’t Budge

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterA groundbreaking new study in Science suggests warm interglacial-like conditions (surface temperatures within 1°C of today’s) persisted from 54 to 42,000 years ago even though CO₂ levels idled around 200 ppm at that time. A sudden geomagnetic shift that intensified galactic cosmic rays and cloud formation and reduced ozone levels ~42,000 years ago resulted […]

Scientists Continue To Affirm Rising Incoming Solar Radiation Drives Recent Warming In Europe

Scientists Continue To Affirm Rising Incoming Solar Radiation Drives Recent Warming In Europe

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterTwo new studies refer to the natural decline in cloud and aerosol reflectivity and consequent rise in incoming solar radiation or sunlight duration as the explanation for warming trends across Europe. CO2 is not even mentioned as a factor in climate change. Scientists point out that, for Europe, “the decrease in cloud cover is […]

The Globe's Total Greenhouse Effect Forcing Has Been On A Declining Trend For Decades

The Globe’s Total Greenhouse Effect Forcing Has Been On A Declining Trend For Decades

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterCO2’s impact on the total net greenhouse effect (GHE) or longwave (LW) forcing trend has been offset by the dominant impact of cloud cover since the 1980s.  It is now widely accepted that changes in clouds, naturally driven by changes in atmospheric circulation, “may be the most important parameter controlling the radiation budget, and, […]

Share this…FacebookTwitter In 2020, more than 400 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. Over 400 scientific papers […]

Scientists Find CO2 Levels Must TRIPLE To Have An 1800% Smaller Climate Impact Than Clouds Do

Scientists Find CO2 Levels Must TRIPLE To Have An 1800% Smaller Climate Impact Than Clouds Do

Share this…FacebookTwitterOceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface. An analysis of CO2’s radiative effect on ocean temperatures finds CO2 forcing is negligible even after reaching a concentration of 1,071 ppm. In the tropical oceans, 500 to 1,000 W/m² of solar radiation uniformly heats the first 2 meters of the ocean surface by 2 Kelvin in […]

New Study Finds A Robust Link Between European Temperatures And Solar Activity Via AMO/NAO Modulation

New Study Finds A Robust Link Between European Temperatures And Solar Activity Via AMO/NAO Modulation

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterEuropean winter temperature variability is “dominated” by the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), which is, in turn, modulated by solar activity. Even proponents of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) agree natural processes (AMO, NAO, ENSO, solar forcing, volcanism) drive temperature variability. But they insist the rising temperature trend is human-caused. So if we don’t have a […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterEchoing the determination of NASA scientists, a new study suggests the natural variability in cloud cover allowing more solar radiation to be absorbed by the Earth’s oceans drove the 2014-2020 global warming. NASA scientists (Loeb et al., 2018) used satellite data to assess the 2014-2017 warming was driven by a +0.83 W/m² shortwave forcing due […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe magnitude of claimed global warming since the mid-1800s has tripled from 0.56°C to 1.72°C in the last few years. As recently as 1994, the IPCC claimed global surface temperatures had risen “0.3 to 0.6°C” (0.45°C) since 1861. By 2001, it was changed to 0.61°C warming from 1861 to 2000 (IPCC TAR 2001). Image […]
