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

Two 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 caused […]

As Snow Blankets Europe, EnBW Power Company Builds Giant Solar Panel Farm In Germany

As Snow Blankets Europe, EnBW Power Company Builds Giant Solar Panel Farm In Germany

Although Germany sees about as many hours of sunshine as Alaska, the country is pushing for ever larger solar farms.  Germany business daily Handelsblatt here reports that power company EnBW is currently building a 500 MW solar panel park in Brandenburg, 30 km east of Berlin. It reported that it will be able to provide […]

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

European 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 regional […]

Low Solar Activity Points To Colder Than Normal 2020/21 European Winter

Low Solar Activity Points To Colder Than Normal 2020/21 European Winter

SnowFan here reports on the latest winter forecasts for the 2020/21 Europe winter. History and statistics show Europe could be in for a frosty winter.  Currently a significant La Nina is shaping up, and history shows that these events in the Pacific have an impact on Europe’s winters: The NOAA reanalysis above shows the temperature […]

Astrophysicist Asserts The Globe Will Cool ~1°C During 2020-2053 Due To An Oncoming Grand Solar Minimum

Astrophysicist Asserts The Globe Will Cool ~1°C During 2020-2053 Due To An Oncoming Grand Solar Minimum

During the last Grand Solar Minimum (17th century), global surface temperatures dipped to the coldest of the last 10,000 years – about 1.4°C colder than today. Dr. Zharkova, an astrophysicist, has determined another imminent drop in solar activity will lead to a 1°C cooling in the coming decades. From 1645 to 1710, the Sun went […]

New Study: Region's Climate Aligns With Solar Forcing - Today's 'Natural' Warm Period Will Last 'Some More Decades'

New Study: Region’s Climate Aligns With Solar Forcing – Today’s ‘Natural’ Warm Period Will Last ‘Some More Decades’

In a new climate reconstruction for the Tibetan Plateau (Liang et al., 2020), scientists report a) the highest Holocene temperatures occurred about 8,500 to 6,000 years ago; b) “century-scale climate fluctuations” correlate “statistically and visually” with solar forcing estimates; and c) “we are in the middle of the 500-yr-long relatively warm period” and “this natural […]

Soon-To-Be-Published Study Finds Oceanic, Atmospheric And Solar Cycles Drive Europe Climate Variability

Soon-To-Be-Published Study Finds Oceanic, Atmospheric And Solar Cycles Drive Europe Climate Variability

Elsevier has accepted a new paper by Lüdecke et al, 2020, showing natural oceanic and solar cycles play a large role in modulating Europe’s climate. Offers new chances for robust midterm temperature prognoses.  The paper, in press, journal pre-proof, analyzes natural variability in European monthly temperatures on decadal and multidecadal timescales and their possible drivers. […]

New Study: Solar Forcing Estimates Since 1750 Could Be Much Larger Than Estimates Of Anthropogenic Forcing

New Study: Solar Forcing Estimates Since 1750 Could Be Much Larger Than Estimates Of Anthropogenic Forcing

An observational analysis of photometric evidence suggests solar forcing of Earth’s atmosphere could vary by as much as ±4.5 W/m² since 1750, which is “far larger than the IPCC estimate of −0.30 to +0.10 W/m²” (Judge et al., 2020). A 2017 study suggested the solar activity during the “modern maximum period from 1940 to 2015” […]

Earth's Mean Temperature Falling, Planetary Alignment Suspected As Driver Of The 11-Year Solar Cycle

Earth’s Mean Temperature Falling, Planetary Alignment Suspected As Driver Of The 11-Year Solar Cycle

Image: NASA Earth Observatory. Public Domain Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt’s Monthly Solar Report The global mean temperature in April 2020 was again significantly lower than in February and March, at 0.38°C above the average from 1981 to 2010. The average temperature increase on the globe from 1981 to February 2020 was 0.14°C per decade. The further […]

Independent Researcher Finds Solar Schwabe Cycle Signal: Reoccurring  Weather Patterns Every 10 Years

Independent Researcher Finds Solar Schwabe Cycle Signal: Reoccurring Weather Patterns Every 10 Years

Dr. Ludger Laurenz The sun has left its signature in data from numerous weather stations, thus challenging meteorologists and climate researchers who falsely claim the sun plays only a minor role. Image: NASA Earth Observatory (public domain).  In the 11-year sunspot cycle (Schwabe cycle), the sun generates a start impulse in the sunspot maximum year. Triggered […]

New Study Asserts Cloud Cover Changes Drove The Post-1980s Solar Radiation Increase Important To Recent Warming

New Study Asserts Cloud Cover Changes Drove The Post-1980s Solar Radiation Increase Important To Recent Warming

Using NASA’s MERRA-2 radiation data, scientists find shortwave radiation (SW) has been rising since the 1980s. The SW increase has been larger and faster than longwave radiation (LW) changes during this same timespan. Cloud variability has been the “main driver” of these trends. Image Source: Delgado-Bonal et al, 2020 In a new Nature journal paper (Delgado-Bonal […]

German Solar Industry, Politicians, Call For Punishment Of Dissenters: “Sabotaging Climate Emergency Measures”

Climate science and energy policy dissenters may need to be prepared to get fined, maybe sent to a mental institution or even imprisoned. German climate crazies are calling for it! German solar lobby, politicians calling for fines and even imprisonment of climate science skeptics. Solar industry lobby wants to punish climate emergency critics for sabotaging […]
