    OK, Pierre I got the message.

    Every comment of mine that is longer than 3 lines is blocked, in moderation or just never appears until days later.

    I’ll keep reading but no more comments as it is just a waste of time for the both of us.

    I note your name is in the papers again.


    Well done!

    Wind turbines do not produce 50/60Hz electricity.
    Wind turbines do produce bulked up energy, harmonics which create the illusion electricity is being produced.
    These harmonics are useless to the consumer.
    The harmonics are through smart meters fraudulently added to consumers power accounts.
    Turbines cannot boil a jug.
    Turbines are a fraud.
    The wind turbine industry should be shut down.
    I look forward to a reply.

    The link to the Swiss article above, gives a breakdown on solar cell costs in energy terms and concludes they never produce sufficient energy to repay the energy used to manufacture, install and maintain them.

    Thanks for all your work on global warming.

    There is an article I wrote that shows an atmospheric CO2 doubling GMT of 1.4 deg C using results published in the scientific literature.

    Here is the link to the article:

    Solar panels do not produce sufficient energy…
    They may produce sufficient energy to heat or assist in heating your water heater. But!
    They do not have sufficient grunt/oomph to run that energy from your property along the street and back into your neighbours property/water heater

    The owners of solar should not be paid for energy pushed back into the grid. There is none

    To heat your own water heater it is preferable to fit a second dedicated element. Why would you when there is electricity in the street.

    Wind turbines and solar are a complete waste of time and a hoax. They do not work and are not cost effective

    If the world had not bought into the human induced climate change nonsense we would not be doing these crazy things

    You and Kenneth may be interested in these papers with reference to sea level rise. With thanks to oldbrew on tallbloke·wordpress·com for this —

    Reconstructing longest American water level, instrumented flood record, in Boston Harbor
    Date: June 1, 2018
    Source: University of Massachusetts at Amherst
    Using newly-discovered archival measurements to construct an instrumental record of water levels and storm tides in Boston since 1825, researchers report that local averaged relative sea level rose by nearly a foot (0.28 meters) over the past 200 years, with the greatest increase occurring since 1920. The work also highlights tides and their significant effect on flooding in the city.
    “The astronomical influences on tides can be a bit confusing, but our research shows that slow changes in the moon’s orbit around the earth relative to the earth’s orbit around the sun results in high tides increasing and decreasing over an 18.6-year cycle.”

    This means extreme high tides may be as much as four inches greater at the high point in this cycle compared to its low point, he adds.


    The Effect of the 18.6-Year Lunar Nodal Cycle on Regional Sea-Level Rise Estimates

    A known decadal-scale variation is the 18.6-year nodal cycle. Here, we show how failing to account for the nodal cycle resulted in an overestimation of Dutch sea-level rise. The nodal cycle is present across the globe with a varying phase and a median amplitude of 2.2 cm.

    OT as it directly relates to climate change, but if any of it is true then it may be very relevant to the German people’s ability to do anything to hold their government accountable.

    Hi Pierre,

    You maybe amused to read the latest from a certain Hans Joachim Schellnhuber and his co-author Johan Rockström. Yes their ‘report is all tipping-point and falling dominoes …

    Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, says, “We show how industrial-age greenhouse gas emissions force our climate, and ultimately the Earth system, out of balance. In particular, we address tipping elements in the planetary machinery that might, once a certain stress level has been passed, one by one change fundamentally, rapidly, and perhaps irreversibly. This cascade of events may tip the entire Earth system into a new mode of operation.”

    “What we do not know yet is whether the climate system can be safely ‘parked’ near 2°C above preindustrial levels, as the Paris Agreement envisages. Or if it will, once pushed so far, slip down the slope towards a hothouse planet. Research must assess this risk as soon as possible.”

    And even more laughably (with ALARMING global map) saying “Global map of potential tipping cascades. The individual tipping elements are color-coded according to estimated thresholds in global average surface temperature (tipping points; 18,43). Arrows show the potential interactions among the tipping elements, based on expert elicitation, which could generate cascades.”

    Just found this over at John Ray’s “Greenie Watch” (posted 8-12-2018)

    It’s an excellent review of the subject, IMO.

  13. Yonason

    Hi Pierre, I just read a comment by you about stuff that’s really dumb…

    Yes. Yes it is. But then, that is how Leftists “think,” if you can call it that. Oh, and don’t forget that according to them, Killing the unborn is a good thing, too. – Chelsea Clinton (with video proof)

    I find it hard to believe there have ever been as many really evil people in the world as today, though I could be, and hope I am, wrong.

    1. SebastianH

      Hmm, there was a study a few days ago about the ability to detect BS and prosocial behaviour. I think it fits you rather well, Yonason.

    Just came across this, Pierre.


    In case you didn’t already know… Someone in the state government in NY thought it important enough to make a pdf of this article.

    I tried to access just the first part of that link, and was redirected to here…

    For what it’s worth.

    Of course Pierre the idiot followers of the UN-IPCC will tell you this doesn’t matter.

      That is NOT good at all.

        Right, spike. With CO2 involved in cooling, the next big climate scare will be to control CO2 to prevent catastrophic cooling.

    Pierre and Kenneth,
    You both may be interested in this piece about trees, forests, weather and climate…
    From https://www.quantamagazine.org/forests-emerge-as-a-major-overlooked-climate-factor-20181009/
    The world’s major forests, which contain hundreds of billions of trees, can move water on almost inconceivably large scales. Antonio Nobre, a climate scientist at Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research, has estimated, for example, that the Amazon rainforest discharges around 20 trillion liters of water per day — roughly 17 percent more than even the mighty Amazon River.
    Yet the computer models that scientists rely on to predict the future climate don’t even come close to acknowledging the power of plants to move water on that scale, Swann said.
    “They’re tiny, but together they are mighty.”

    Yet again the The Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) is shown to have affected more than just Europe and the NH but also S.America. And the effects occurred mostly synchronously and probably reached comparable intensities to those in the NH.

    From https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1040618218308322

    The Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) is a climatic perturbation with a core period of 1000-1200 AD that is well-recognized in the Northern Hemisphere (NH). Its existence in the Southern Hemisphere (SH) and the level of synchronicity with the NH is still a matter of debate. Here we present a palaeotemperature synthesis for South America encompassing the past 1500 years based on multiproxy data from 76 published land and marine sites. The data sets have been thoroughly graphically correlated and the MCA trends palaeoclimatologically mapped. The vast majority of all South American land sites suggest a warm MCA. Andean vegetation zones moved upslope, glaciers retreated, biological productivity in high altitude lakes increased, the duration of cold season ice cover on Andean lakes shortened, and trees produced thicker annual rings. Similar MCA warming occurred in coastal seas, except in the year-round upwelling zones of Peru, northern Chile and Cabo Frio (Brazil) where upwelling processes intensified during the MCA due to changes in winds and ocean currents. MCA warming in South America and the NH appears to have occurred largely synchronous, probably reaching comparable intensities. Future studies will have to address major MCA data gaps that still exist outside the Andes in the central and eastern parts of the continent. The most likely key drivers for the medieval climate change are multi-centennial Pacific and Atlantic ocean cycles, probably linked to solar forcing.

    Hi Pierre.
    I went here http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/ went to trend tables, click on global trend, downloaded all the data and then plotted the average.
    what I got was a measly 1.36 mm per year.

    Though you might be interested in this if you have not seen it yet.

    Outstanding piece by David Middleton on why even according to the IPCCs own models the Greenland Ice Sheet will not melt at a rate anywhere near that required to cause any of the catastrophic SLR that so many others are claiming.

    Doubling down on stupid, 8 more GW to further destabilize the German grid.


    1. SebastianH

      Ah yes, the infamous rolling blackouts caused by renewables that haunt the German grid on a daily basis. Do you know the average amount of time someone in Germany experiences a power outtage vs. France (nuclear power) or the US (where this is measured in hours per year … hours!)?

    2. Yonason


      Pay no attention to the stalking troll. He couldn’t tell the truth to save his life.

      I have lots more, but I’ll stop there. Unless I’m mistaken, this is Pierre’s page for tips, not debates – something for which a troll has no respect whatever.

      1. SebastianH

        Do the research Yonason, and find out how stable the German grid is compared to the french one or the US grid. That’s my tip for you. Again, the US measures the outages for it’s citizens in hours (!!!) per year.

        1. Yonason

          You should take your own advise.

          Neither your comparison nor the conclusion you draw from it are valid.

          “These [SAIDI and SAIFI] statistics measure interruptions at the end-use customer. The reliability concerns around renewable resources, however, occur at the bulk system level. Thus, these statistics do not demonstrate that the “German” bulk grid is more reliable as they do not measure bulk system reliability.”


          “There is a widespread belief that Germany has demonstrated that large amounts of intermittent renewables can be easily integrated without adversely impacting the reliability of the bulk power grid. This article has noted that such a conclusion is not supportable: 1) Germany has not integrated as high a level of renewables as many suppose, 2) Germany is part of and relies upon a larger integrated grid which contains even lower levels of renewable resources and 3) Germany has incurred nontrivial transmission costs, reliability concerns, and marketplace dislocations associated with their efforts to integrate renewables.”

  35. SebastianH

    Tip for Pierre: watch „Monitor“ tomorrow. I am sure you will have something to say about how unfair the portrayal of climate skeptics will certainly be 😉

    Pierre and Kenneth may be interested in a paper about modeling ocean warming/cooling and CO2 release/uptake.
    Called “Asymmetric dynamical ocean responses in warming icehouse and cooling greenhouse climates” and is available at http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/aaedc3 .
    It’s not exactly definitive in it’s outcomes but it may be first step in the right direction.

  37. rah

    Thought this might interest you. Look at the source of the graph.

  38. tom0mason

    Another to add to your ever growing collection of science data —
    From a ‘mere’ Geologist called Dr Roger Higgs …


    TECHNICAL NOTE 2018-4. These four simple slides prove four vital points. (A) Global warming and cooling are driven by the sun (Slide 1), specifically by the solar-sourced Interplanetary Magnetic Field (Slides 2, 3), which regulates incoming cosmic rays (Slide 3), in turn governing cloudiness and thus global temperature (the breathtakingly elegant Svensmark Theory). (B) Global temperature oscillations are shown here to lag 25 years behind the causative solar magnetic fluctuations (Slides 2, 3). This 25-year lag is due to ocean thermal inertia (google it; NB remarkable agreement with the 15-20-year lag estimated theoretically by Wetherald et al. 2001 and Abdussamatov et al. 2012), discounted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). (C) The idea that CO2, currently constituting just 1/2,500th (400ppm) of the atmosphere (a geo-historically very low value, near plant-starvation level), is causing, through mankind’s CO2 additions, ‘anthropogenic global warming’ (AGW), is highly doubtful. (D) Global warming is arguably over. It peaked in 2016, 25 years (see lag time, above) after the 1991 solar magnetic peak (Slides 2, 3). Our Earth is now cooling (Slide 3, bottom graph).

    Not exactly groundbreaking data but it has a few nuggets like the
    “Global temperature oscillations are shown here to lag 25 years behind the causative solar magnetic fluctuations (Slides 2, 3). This 25-year lag is due to ocean thermal inertia … NB remarkable agreement with the 15-20-year lag estimated theoretically by Wetherald et al. 2001 and Abdussamatov et al.” that I consider worth looking at.

    Hi Pierre,
    As it appears that some people believe what climate models say, I feel that maybe they should take a look at “The Art and Science of Climate Model Tuning” available at https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/BAMS-D-15-00135.1

    Interesting reading!

    1. tom0mason

      And along with that paper you may wish to get this 2017 paper DOI: 10.1126/science.354.6311.401 as referenced here http://science.sciencemag.org/content/354/6311/401 called ‘Climate scientists open up their black boxes to scrutiny’.

      Comments at WUWT at https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/01/24/global-energy-balances-except-when-it-doesnt/#comment-2603912 refers to this and points out …

      Recently, while preparing for the new model comparisons, MPIM modelers got another chance to demonstrate their commitment to transparency. They knew that the latest version of their model had bugs that meant too much energy was leaking into space. After a year spent plugging holes and fixing it, the modelers ran a test and discovered something disturbing: The model was now overheating. Its climate sensitivity—the amount the world will warm under an immediate doubling of carbon dioxide concentrations from preindustrial levels—had shot up from 3.5°C in the old version to 7°C, an implausibly high jump.

      MPIM hadn’t tuned for sensitivity before— it was a point of pride—but they had to get that number down. Thorsten Mauritsen, who helps lead their tuning work, says he tried tinkering with the parameter that controlled how fast fresh air mixes into clouds. Increasing it began to ratchet the sensitivity back down. “The model we produced with 7° was a damn good model,” Mauritsen says.
