An 'Enormous Contribution' To Earth's Energy Budget Arises From Bottom-Up Geothermal Heating

An ‘Enormous Contribution’ To Earth’s Energy Budget Arises From Bottom-Up Geothermal Heating

Share this…FacebookTwitter15% of modern global warming (ocean) can be attributed to geothermal heat fluxes through the sea floor that persistently heat the ocean. Evidence of more than 100,000 formerly or currently active volcanic vents permeate the Earth’s sea floor (Kelley, 2017). Active volcanoes spew 380°C sulfuric acid and “metal-laden acidic fluids” into the bottom waters […]

Sinking Sea Level Alarmism: Study By Nevada Scientists Show Surface Motion of Continents "On Average Upward"

Sinking Sea Level Alarmism: Study By Nevada Scientists Show Surface Motion of Continents “On Average Upward”

Share this…FacebookTwitterScientists find that on average, motion of continents is currently upward. German climate science critical site Die kalte Sonne here reports on a recent study by Hammond et al (2021) titled:  “GPS Imaging of Global Vertical Land Motion for Studies of Sea Level Rise“. The study examined the rates and patterns of vertical land […]

Study: Volcanic Ash A Major Problem For PV Panels, (Never Mind Dust, Snow, Clouds, Darkness, Weeds)

Study: Volcanic Ash A Major Problem For PV Panels, (Never Mind Dust, Snow, Clouds, Darkness, Weeds)

Share this…FacebookTwitterA recent volcanic eruption in Spain has led to one solar farm getting buried by a meter of volcanic ash.  As you can imagine, it’ll take awhile and considerable expense to get that facility back online, if at all. Volcanic ash is a major problem for solar panel performance. Illustration image – solar panel […]

Until Recently Scientists Believed Climate Change Has Been Melting Antarctic Glaciers. Now They Do Not.

Until Recently Scientists Believed Climate Change Has Been Melting Antarctic Glaciers. Now They Do Not.

Share this…FacebookTwitterAccording to a new study, 36% of 1979-2017 Antarctic ice loss was from the Thwaites and Pine Island glaciers. Scientists believed this glacier melt was due to anthropogenic climate change “until recently”. Now they say the glacier mass losses are due to the thin underlying crust and anomalously high geothermal heat in this region. […]

New Study Effectively Eliminates Confidence In Human Attribution For Modern Global Warming

New Study Effectively Eliminates Confidence In Human Attribution For Modern Global Warming

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe forcing uncertainties and lack of observational measurements in the top-to-bottom global ocean preclude an assessment that modern warmth is due to anthropogenic activities. Key points from a new paper (Gebbie, 2021): • 93% of the changes to the Earth’s energy budget, manifested as warming of the Earth system, are expressed in the global […]

Science Junket? "Musicologist", Others, Jet To Ecuador On "Expedition Anthropocene" ...And For Lots Of Hiking

Science Junket? “Musicologist”, Others, Jet To Ecuador On “Expedition Anthropocene” …And For Lots Of Hiking

Share this…FacebookTwitterMonster carbon footprint: Six German researchers fly all the way to Ecuador to study how humans are impacting the earth during the Anthropocene – and do lots of hiking at the expense of the public – on a 17-day “expedition”. Some of them, including a musicologist, are of questionable scientific disciplines.  Chimborazo in Riobamba, […]

New Study: Coral Reefs Thrive Near Acidic Waters (pH ~6.0) Where Seafloor Vents Emit Up To 95,000 ppm CO2

New Study: Coral Reefs Thrive Near Acidic Waters (pH ~6.0) Where Seafloor Vents Emit Up To 95,000 ppm CO2

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 […]

New Paper: Volcanism Can Cool Earth For Centuries, Lead To More Natural Disasters, Pandemics, Economic Recession

New Paper: Volcanism Can Cool Earth For Centuries, Lead To More Natural Disasters, Pandemics, Economic Recession

Share this…FacebookTwitterScientists (Bragato and Holzhauser, 2019) find natural catastrophes like tornadoes and earthquakes and pandemics like plague, cholera, and influenza “concentrate in the periods of ice expansion in Europe” whereas periods of economic expansion and a lower incidence of natural catastrophes and pandemics occur during deglaciation phases, or warm periods. Century-scale cooling can be elicited […]

Consensus? 200+ New 2019 Papers Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarmism

Consensus? 200+ New 2019 Papers Support A Skeptical Position On Climate Alarmism

Share this…FacebookTwitterIn the first 5½ months of 2019, over 200 scientific papers have been 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 ²²²²mainstream media sources.

New Explanation For Missing Global Warming? Scientists Claim Extratropical Volcanoes Underestimated!

New Explanation For Missing Global Warming? Scientists Claim Extratropical Volcanoes Underestimated!

Share this…FacebookTwitterReaders should note that among climate modelers volcanoes and atmospheric aerosols have been a favorite way of fudging climate models to explain away inconvenient cooling periods that weren’t supposed to happen in a system that is supposed to be dominated by trace gas CO2. ======================================================= Extratropical volcanoes influence climate more than assumed Study shows […]

Lousy Water Management, Not Climate Change, Leading To Ecological Disaster In Iran
