Scientists Find “Surprising” And “Statistically Significant” Cooling Trend Over Entire Continental Antarctica

Share this...

East Antarctica, which covers two thirds of the South Pole, has cooled a whopping 2.8°C over the past 4 decades; West Antarctica approximately 1.6°C. ..only tiny Antarctic Peninsula saw statistically insignificant warming.

German climate website Die kalte Sonne posted its 64th climate video here and examined a new paper on Antarctica by Zhu et al (2021): “An Assessment of ERA5 Reanalysis for Antarctic Near-Surface Air Temperature

The European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) released its latest ERA5 reanalysis dataset in 2017 and Zhu and his researchers compared the near-surface temperature data from ERA5 and ERA-Interim with the measured data from 41 weather stations.

They found that the temperature trend from ERA5 is consistent with that from observations. The result: a cooling trend dominates East Antarctica and West Antarctica while a warming trend exists in the Antarctic Peninsula. Note that the regions of east and West Antarctica combined are vastly larger than the tiny Antarctic Peninsula.

Substantial cooling 

The results are summarized as follows (cropped from Die kalte Sonne):

The table above shows East Antarctica, which covers two thirds of the continent, saw a cooling of 0.70°C per decade over the past 40 years. In total that particular region has cooled about 2.8°C since 1980.

West Antarctica has cooled at a rate of 0.42°C per decade over the past 40 years.

Die kalte Sonne finds the results “surprising” and “statistically significant”. And though the Antarctic Peninsula has warmed moderately, Die kalte Sonne sees nothing significant happening over this comparatively small region.

This of course should be seen as good news for the global warming alarmists who fear the South Pole might melt.

New Study: High Arctic Canada’s Early Holocene Winter Air Temperatures Were ‘6-8°C Warmer Than Today’

Share this...

The Canadian Arctic’s surface temperatures have been up to 15 to 25°C warmer than today during the geologically recent Holocene, Pleistocene, and Pliocene epochs.

Scientists (Campbell-Heaton et al., 2021) assessing the ratio of winter temperature at the ground surface to that in the air (the “freezing n-factor”) suggest ground surface winter temperatures now (1981-2016) average -33°C in the Canadian Arctic’s Eureka Sound Lowlands.

About 9000 to 10,000 years ago, ground surface temperatures reached -18°C at this location, which is 15°C warmer than present. Winter air temperatures, were, on average, “6-8°C warmer than today” at this time too.

Image Source: Campbell-Heaton et al., 2021

Other sites in this same region of the Canadian Arctic (Eureka, ~78°N) were 22-25°C warmer than today during the Pliocene (Fletcher et al.,  2017), or 3-4 million years ago (Ma).

Mean annual temperatures (MAT) for the neighboring Meighen Island, for example, were about 4°C during this period, which is approximately 2°C warmer than the current MAT in Anchorage, Alaska (2°C). Today’s MAT at this location is around -20°C.

Image Source: Fletcher et al.,  2017
It was during the Pliocene and the early stages of the Pleistocene ice age (2.6 Ma to 11,700 years ago) that it was warm enough for camels to wander about in the Canadian Arctic in MAT 18.3°C warmer than present (Rybczynski et al., 2013).
Image Source: Rybczynski et al., 2013

It was during the Pleistocene that the Greenland ice sheet – which is today covered in 2 to 3 kilometers of ice (height) – was so warm it periodically melted to the ground, meaning the ice “disappeared on several occasions” (Young et al., 2021).

Image Source: Young et al., 2021

The peak CO2 values during the Pleistocene are alleged to be 280 ppm, which is lower than it was during the latter stages of the recent Little Ice Age period (~290 ppm).

These temperature reconstructions thus strongly suggests CO2 concentrations have little or nothing to do with mean annual surface temperatures in Arctic regions.

Veteran Chemical Engineer: Recent Warming Likely Caused By Relative Humidity Decrease, Not CO2 GHG

Global Warming Driven by Relative Humidity Decrease, Not CO2 GHG! Solution: More Ocean Evaporation

By David R. Motes

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is quantitatively driven by a steady relative humidity decrease of 0.13%/year throughout the troposphere since 1970 per the chart below, and not CO2 GHG (Green House Gas).  The resulting evaporation reduction is a 3 factor larger AGW driver than CO2 GHG theory.  These quantitative facts are based on calculations using consensus scientific data and diagrams from CO2 GHG proponent sites such as the IPCC, NASA, NOAA, and the International Energy Agency. The main points of the linked 29-page paper pdf follow:

Global relative humidity throughout the troposphere has fallen steadily since 1970. 

Warming will reverse only when the relative humidity decrease is reversed. 

Relative humidity drives precipitation and evaporation which is responsible for absorption and dispersion of 24% of the solar energy reaching the earth’s surface per the below NOAA solar energy balance.  Evaporation transports this energy to the upper troposphere for radiation to space.  1. This evaporation reduction (ER) radiative energy imbalance (watts/m2) from the above 0.13%/year relative humidity decline is calculated to be a 3 factor higher than the IPCC CO2 GHG energy imbalance.  2. This same ER generates a calculated temperature rise 2.6 times more than the actual measured temperature rise since 1975 using the IPCC Climate Sensitivity factor.

Above evaporation reduction is driven by CO2 induced plant water use efficiency (WUE) increase. 

81% of the above ER radiative energy imbalance is generated by a CO2 induced 0.70%/year plant water use efficiency (WUE) increase.  In the photosynthesis reaction, higher CO2 allows plants to transpire less water.  The WUE increase and resulting ER decrease are anthropogenic since man generated the atmospheric CO2.  This better explains the correlation between CO2 and temperature since 1900 than CO2 GHG.

Only evaporation reduction fits all the scientific data, not CO2 GHG theory. 

This novel ER science provides an explanation for the undeniable AGW since 1900 that fits all the scientific data as explained in the paper: temperature / CO2 historic correlations, the relative humidity decrease above, solar energy balance above, hydrologic balance above, carbon mass balance below, carbon source for CO2, GHG parameters, etc.  All the ER quantifications are scientific fact and explain the 2 different historic correlations between CO2 and temperature: 1. 1900+ anthropogenic correlation 2. the prior million-year plant biomass correlation.  Engineering quantifications were performed using existing consensus data.  Granted, other climate drivers also exist such as solar effects.

Conversely, CO2 GHG theory remains a largely unquantifiable, problematic theory. By example, eleven CO2 GHG theory problems are quantified and graphically presented (all resolved by ER science).  Our focus was on engineering quantification versus the hereto date presentation of GHG data and theories.

Increasing ocean evaporation is less expensive and more effective than simply reducing annual fossil fuel CO2 emissions.

Quantified problems with the proposed CO2 annual emission reduction plans are:

  1. Focuses on the 1%/year annual contribution and illogically ignores the 99% existing atmospheric CO2.
  2. Focuses solely on reducing the 8% CO2 emissions driver, while ignoring the 92% plant life CO2 driver.

This fresh chemical engineering perspective from a high-altitude sheds new light on an old subject. The above hydrologic balance, above energy balance, below carbon balance, and other calculations detailed in this study have not previously been quantified and summarized as presented.  Again, the full 29-page paper pdf may be viewed or downloaded at docudroid.com which includes a 2-page Abstract of the key points.   All calculations, details, explanations, references and contacts are contained in the linked pdf

33 Holocaust Survivors/Descendants Defend COVID Vaccine Critic Prof. Bhakdi Against Anti-Semitism Smears

Share this...

Repulsive smear campaign by Big Media, German ARD public television

Like Wikipedia, German flagship ARD public television has maliciously accused outspoken microbiologist Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi of “being an anti-Semite” in a smear campaign against the renowned researcher and COVID-19 vaccine critic. 

Smear campaign by Wikipedia, German ARD public television gets a harsh reaction from 33 Holocaust survivors who rally to defend “good man”. 

33 Holocaust survivors/decedents rally behind soft-spoken professor

In a response, 33 Holocaust Survivors/Descendants have published an open letter in German to protest the vicious tactics. What follows is the open letter translated in the English (bold headings added by NTZ).

=======================

OPEN LETTER FROM HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS AND DESCENDANTS TO THE GERMAN MEDIA

After the shocking news reached us that the state-funded media have accused Professor Sucharit Bhakdi of being an anti-Semite, we have decided to write this letter. We stand behind Professor Bhakdi because he speaks the truth.

“Media have lied”…”instrumentalized the Holocaust”

You, the media, have lied to the people for years by preaching false lessons from the Holocaust. That is not the lesson of the Holocaust, that Jews must not be killed or questioned. No human being should be killed! The lesson from the Holocaust is that you must not stand by and participate when a minority is persecuted. You have instrumentalized the Holocaust to achieve the opposite: to deprive people of the will to resist injustice. And in this godless way you have prepared a new Holocaust and are in the process of implementing it.

Again in Germany: campaign to “deny, injure and humiliate”

We expressly warn that another holocaust is unfolding, only bigger and more more sophisticated. The brutality with which you fight the opposition, both verbally and physically, deny, injure and humiliate, and serves to suppress the truth. Destroyed lives, apartment searches, occupational bans, forced psychiatric detentions, and worse – this could be the story of our lives, but this is the reality we observe in Germany.

Dr. Bhakdi has done nothing wrong. He merely implied that the phrase “Vaccination Macht Frei” bears an uncanny resemblance to the slogan on the gate of Auschwitz, which is quite correct. Please stop attacking this good man, who is certainly not an anti-Semite.”

***

“I’m alive because my grandmother was disobedient when it was ordered that Jews should gather, like now to the vaccination centers by means of coercion and fear. I’m alive because courageous people were disobedient when they were forbidden to hide Jews Just as now Sucharit Bhakdi and other decent people are disobeying to save lives. To punish them for this with the term “anti-Semite” is an outrageous hypocrisy.”

Masha Orel

***

“My grandparents and my mother were in Bergen-Belsen because of their Jewish origin. I am not religious, but this heritage has accompanied me since my youth and I react very sensitively to anti-Semitism in any form. Whoever calls Prof. Bhakdi an anti-Semite because of an unfortunate formulation has never had anything to do with anti-Semites. It is probably done with the aim of discrediting this humane and emotionally committed scientist on a personal level. I would like to raise my voice against that.”

Andrea Drescher

***

“Immediately after the report by Mr. Wulf Rohwedder (ARD), in which Prof. Bhakdi was stigmatized as an anti-Semite, we wrote to several broadcasters. We set the record straight that the constant misuse of the term “anti-Semite” in no way serves the safety of Jews. The opposite is the case. No response came from any of those responsible, nor was there a public apology. Now those who know best how it feels to be stigmatized and persecuted are speaking out.”

New Study: No Trend In Compound Natural Disasters Across Australia Since 1966

Share this...

Three new studies affirm there has been no significant change in natural disasters, precipitation, or bushfire across Australia for the last several decades.

Instances when perilous flooding, drought, bushfire, cyclones, storms, heatwaves…occur at the nearly same time are classified as “compound disaster” events.

Across Australia, there has been no statistically significant trend in compound disaster events over any period in the last 50 years.

The predominant and most predictable driver of climate-related disaster events is not anthropogenic global warming, or CO2 emissions, but the El Niño Southern Oscillation.

Gissing et al., 2021

“Here we utilise an Australian natural disaster database of normalised insurance losses to show compound disasters are responsible for the highest seasonal financial losses. Though their component events occur most frequently in the eastern seaboard, they may also comprise disasters on both sides of the continent. There has been no temporal trend in their frequency since 1966. A new compound disaster scale is proposed for Australian conditions. A bootstrapping analysis reveals the pairing of Bushfire and Tropical Cyclone to occur far less often than would be expected by chance. This is because these perils occur most frequently under contrasting climate states. Climate variability influences the frequency, intensity and type of perils contributing to compound disasters with the clearest relationship being with the El Niño Southern Oscillation. Given that ENSO is the most predictable climate driver at seasonal timescales, this may assist better forecasting of their occurrence and higher degrees of readiness.”

Image Source: Gissing et al., 2021

Precipitation patterns across Australia also show no detectable trend in the last 50 years, as some regions have experienced more rainfall and some less rainfall. As a whole, however, the country has become slightly wetter since 1960 (as indicated by the larger concentrations of blue in the below images).

Wasko et al., 2021

Northern parts of Australia have experienced increasing annual rainfall totals, resulting in increased water availability in the tropics with increased soil moisture, evapotranspiration, and runoff, particularly during the hot, wet monsoon season. In contrast, the southwest and southeast coast of Australia have experienced declines in rainfall, particularly in the colder months, corresponding with decreasing evapotranspiration, soil moisture, and runoff. Trends in flooding are aligned with runoff trends, and closely follow trends in rainfall, with changes in soil moisture of secondary influence. Streamflow droughts, measured by the standardised runoff index, are increasing across large parts of Australia, with these increases more widespread than changes in rainfall alone. Increases in rainfall in the tropics of northern Australia appear to be related to decreasing drought occurrence and extent, but this trend is not universal, suggesting changes in rainfall alone are not an indicator of changing drought conditions.”

Image Source: Wasko et al., 2021

Another new study indicates Australia is far less prone to fire today than it was 4600 to 2800 years ago. All proxies denoting fire incidence have shown a significant decline in the last 900 years.

Rehn et al., 2021 (full)

“Fire has a long history in Australia and is a key driver of vegetation dynamics in the tropical savanna ecosystems that cover one quarter of the country. Fire reconstructions are required to understand ecosystem dynamics over the long term but these data are lacking for the extensive savannas of northern Australia. This paper presents a multiproxy palaeofire record for Marura sinkhole in eastern Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia. The record is constructed by combining optical methods (counts and morphology of macroscopic and microscopic charcoal particles) and chemical methods (quantification of abundance and stable isotope composition of pyrogenic carbon by hydrogen pyrolysis). This novel combination of measurements enables the generation of a record of relative fire intensity to investigate the interplay between natural and anthropogenic influences. The Marura palaeofire record comprises three main phases: 4600–2800 cal BP, 2800–900 cal BP and 900 cal BP to present. Highest fire incidence occurs at ~4600–4000 cal BP, coinciding with regional records of high effective precipitation, and all fire proxies decline from that time to the present. 2800–900 cal BP is characterised by variable fire intensities and aligns with archaeological evidence of occupation at nearby Blue Mud Bay. All fire proxies decline significantly after 900 cal BP. The combination of charcoal and pyrogenic carbon measures is a promising proxy for relative fire intensity in sedimentary records and a useful tool for investigating potential anthropogenic fire regimes.”

Reality Jolt: Arctic September Minimum Sea Ice Extent Trend RISING Over Past 10 Years – Norwegian Data

Share this...

Norwegian data show September minimum Arctic sea ice has risen over the past 10 years, contradicting earlier predictions of a death spiral

By Kirye
and Pierre

Friday NTZ posted on Arctic sea ice extent. This year Arctic sea ice has just about reached its minimum. and so we plot the new data (see below).

Substantial drop – since 1980

But first, of course there is no denying that September sea ice extent has has fallen substantially over the past 4 decades. Yet, those accusing us of cherry-picking also should read the entire article from last Friday, which shows the real cherry picking is done by the alarmists starting their charts in 1979, knowing full well there’s data going back far beyond that time point.

Again here’s Arctic sea ice volume going back 170 years:

Today’s sea ice volume is similar to that seen in the 1940s.

And as Tony Heller has shown dozens of times, the early 20th century is filled with newspaper clippings of a rapidly melting Arctic, which of course later refroze during the middle of the 2th century.

Rising trend

Now here’s osisaf.met.no data on annual minimum sea ice extent:

OSI Arctic sea ice minimum since 2012 ftp://osisaf.met.no/prod_test/ice/index/v2p1/nh/osisaf_nh_sie_daily.txt

September minimum trend has contradicted Al Gore’s predictions of an ice free Arctic. Whether sea ice has turned the corner and will start a recovery still remains to be seen. One thing is certain: The predictions of an ice-free Arctic soon made a decade ago were flat out wrong.

Scientists: Boys Aged 12-15 Are Hospitalized Up To 23x More Due To COVID Vaccines Than Due To COVID

Share this...

A new study asserts “vaccine associated cardiac harms” to children resulting in 7-day hospital stays are 143% to 280% more common than the Center for Disease Control (CDC, US) has claimed.

The CDC estimates 43% of children under 18 across the world have already been infected with COVID during the first 19 months of the pandemic (Høeg et al., 2021). With about 2.2 billion children on Earth, this means there have been an estimated 1 billion children infected thus far.

The United Kingdom’s COVID records indicate 999,998 out of 1,000,000 children infected with COVID survive. That’s an infection fatality rate (IFR) of 0.002% for children.

(Per a synthesis of 680 studies from across the globe, the median IFR for all ages is 0.15%. So, regardless of age, 99.85% of those infected with COVID survive.)

Underreporting “vaccine-related harms” to children

On the 23rd of August, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) reported the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine conferred “an excess risk” of myocarditis approaching 200 cases per million (1/5000) for boys aged 16 and 17 (Høeg et al., 2021). This is a rate 3 times higher than the rate of myocarditis claimed by the CDC.

A new study (pre-print) suggests the health costs and cardiac adverse events (CAE) associated with vaccinating children far exceed the perceived health benefits of preventing COVID infection.

During a recent phase of the COVID pandemic, boys aged 12-15 were hospitalized with complications related to COVID at a rate of 7 (hospitalizations) per million infections. Boys aged 12-15 are hospitalized with “vaccine-associated cardiac harms” (myocarditis) at a rate of 162 per million after the second dose. This means vaccines are associated with 23 times more (7-day) cardiac adverse event hospitalizations.

Consequently, the authors issue a warning:

“In light of the vaccine-associated cardiac harms described in this report, further research as well as transparency about possible vaccine-related harms in relation to an individual child’s COVID-19 risks is indicated.”

Image Source: Høeg et al., 2021

Vaccine-induced adverse reactions and deaths in all age groups

The associated side effects and “clinically significant symptoms” associated with COVID vaccine injections appears to be vastly underreported.

69% of those surveyed report side effects such as fatigue, headache, chills, muscle pain, fever, joint pain…after the first vaccine dose. It’s 89% for those who have previously been infected with COVID per The New England Journal of Medicine.

Image Source: The New England Journal of Medicine

Another study (Debes et al., 2021) reports 43% of health care workers experience clinically significant symptoms after their second vaccine dose. Those who have previously been infected with COVID are 4.4 times more likely to experience clinically significant symptoms.

Image Source: Debes et al., 2021

The UK government has reported the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been associated with 314,700 adverse reactions (blindness, deafness, strokes, seizures, clotting, etc.) and 524 deaths thus far this year for those who live in England.

The AstraZeneca vaccine has been associated with 820,964 adverse reactions and 1,064 deaths thus far this year in the UK.

Stalled: September Arctic Sea Remains Surprisingly Stable Over Past Decade, “Long Way From Predicted “Ice Free”

Share this...

This year’s Arctic sea ice minimum reaches third highest level in a decade, latest data show.

Die kalte Sonne here presents its latest climate video. The first part looks at this year’s Arctic sea ice melt season. Now that it’s September, sea ice extent has just about reached its minimum for the year and soon the annual refreeze will begin.

We recall that years ago alarmist scientists and wacko activists, like al Gore, predicted an ice free Arctic by now. Today we look at the most recent data and we see that we are a very long way from that point.

Very slow August melt this year

What follows is the chart from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC):

Chart source: http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/

This year’s result is eye-opening: The German Die kalte Sonne site reports: “The Arctic sea ice is surprisingly stable” and “truly robust”.

Third highest level in 10 years

Die kalte Sonne also looks at the chart from the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) in Bremerhaven, Germany, where we see the September minimum ice level (15%) in 2021 is the third highest in the past decade:

Die kalte Sonne notes that we are still a long way from the once projected iceless Arctic – of the sort that climate-crisis bedwetter Al Gore predicted.

Ice volume same as 80 years ago

When one looks at Arctic ice volume going back 170 years, today’s levels are in fact very similar to those seen in 1940:

As the above chart suggests, there’s a lot more to ice volume at the poles than mean global surface temperature. Other cyclic natural factors, which man has absolutely no control over, are very much at play.

Scientists Increasingly Agree The Last Ice Age Temperatures Were ~3-4°C Warmer Than Today’s

Share this...

In a “major revision” to the “long-standing view,” scientists are increasingly concluding the last glacial had summers “several degrees” warmer than today, with climate conditions warm enough to allow year-round grass grazing by horses, antelope, gazelle…in Siberia, Alaska, and north of the Arctic circle. Multiple degrees warmer glacial temperatures pervaded both hemispheres.

The “long-standing view” is the current interglacial climate is distinctly warmer and more hospitable to plants, animals, and humans than at any time during the last ice age, or glacial (from about 60,000 to 11,700 years ago). This view “has undergone a major revision” during the last 20 years of geological study according to scientists publishing in the September (2021) edition of Quaternary International.

Vegetation and tree records with specific warmth thresholds and associated ice-free temperature requirements affirm the last glacial needed to be “warmer than today by several degrees Celsius.” (Tarasov et al., 2021)

For example, these scientists document ~5°C warmer glacial climates (July) throughout Northern Asia (the study area):

“…reconstructed mean July temperatures above 12°C for most of the last cold stage [glacial] in the study area [throughout Northern Asia], where modern mean July temperatures are about 7°C”.

The widespread presence of grazing mammoths, horses, bison, deer, antelope, gazelle…in Siberia and Alaska and well north of the Arctic circle imply “year-round grazing grounds.” This requires warmer temperatures and more pervasive ice-free grass-grazing ranges than exist today.

So, contrary to the long-standing view of a generally colder-than-present last glacial climate, there is a growing body of evidence that the distinction between interglacial and glacial climates may not be as stark as previously thought.

The CO2 concentration differential of ~180 to 200 ppm during the warmer glacial periods and 280 to 410 ppm during the colder modern period also contradict the long-standing view of higher CO2 levels accommodating warmer climates, and vice versa.

Image Source: Tarasov et al., 2021 (full paper)

Another new study (Wetterich et al., 2021) again affirms the last glacial’s Siberian Arctic was warmer than it currently is (12-15°C vs. today’s 11°C)  51, 46-44, 41 and 39-31k yrs BP. It was warm enough that horses, mammoths, bison…grazed year-round on Siberian grass.

Image Source: Wetterich et al., 2021

The last glacial’s greater warmth also extended into the Southern Hemisphere according to yet another new study (Civel-Mazens et al., 2021). The Southern Ocean had “higher SST [sea surface temperatures] during the 40-24 kyrs period than during the Holocene,” with LGM [Last Glacial Maximum, 24-18 kyrs ago] temperatures peaking at 13.6°C. Today’s temperatures are ~9°C, in this region, or 4.6°C colder.

Image Source: Civel-Mazens et al., 2021

During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, 26-18k years before present), South Africa’s temperatures where “3-4°C higher than present in summer (and 2-4°C lower than present in winter)” (Kraaj et al., 2020).

Image Source: Kraaj et al., 2020

The sub tropical South Atlantic was about 3-4°C warmer than today from about 65 to 25k years ago (Hou et al., 2020).

Image Source: Hou et al., 2020

In Eastern Europe, “both summer (ca. 19°C) and winter (2-4°C) temperatures [were] above present-day values (ca. 16°C and ca 1°C for July and January, respectively” during the last glacial (Ilyashuk et al., 2021).

Austria: 20% Hospitalized “Fully Vaccinated”. Germany: 3 In Nursing Home “Had To Be Resuscitated” After 3rd Jab

Share this...

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the vaccines against COVID are falling far short of what they were promised to be.

Oberhausen-Germany: “Three seniors had to be resuscitated” after 3rd jab

Germany has started administering third shots to the elderly and already reports of signs of dangerous side effects are emerging. In a nursing home in the western German city of Oberhausen, several seniors experienced “serious problems” a few days after the Corona booster vaccination, reports the online German WDR public broadcasting.

“Three residents of the nursing home had to be resuscitated three days after the booster vaccination.” 10% had to be medically treated.

90 residents are reported to have received the third shot at the Oberhausen nursing home. According to WDR: “Of these, nine had reactions so severe that they had to be treated,”

Now some physicians are now holding off until the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) of the Robert Koch Institute gives the official recommendation.

20% of hospitalized fully vaccinated

In Austria, online heute.at here reports 115 patients were recently in hospitals, 18 people are fighting for their lives, despite having been fully vaccinated against Corona.

According to heute.at, “Currently 20 percent of those requiring hospital treatment are fully vaccinated against Covid 19 – or about 115 people.”

Note that “fully vaccinated” means having received the second shot at least 14 days prior. People who received their second shot only 10 days prior, for example, still count as “unvaccinated”.

Israel: “Need to prepare for a fourth injection”

Once touted as an immunization against the COVID 19 virus, officials are now hoping that repeated boosters will work. In Israel, for example, 25% of the population has already had 3 shots and now “the country’s national coronavirus czar Salman Zarka said the country needs to prepare for a fourth injection, which could be modified to better protect against new variants of the virus,” reports The Daily Mail.

Despite mass vaccination, number of new cases in Israel reach a new high.  Image: Worldometer.

“Given that the virus is here and will continue to be here, we also need to prepare for a fourth injection,” Zarka told Kan public radio.

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

Share this...

According 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.

We’ve recently learned that “profound” cooling has been occurring for East Antarctica since the 1970s, and cooling (-1.68°C since 1979) has also extended to West Antarctica.

Another new study indicates Antarctica contributed just 0.76 of a centimeter to sea level rise from 1992-2017, or 0.3 of a millimeter per year. Also, comparing 1997-2008 to 2009-2018, there has been a net advance in the ice extent for Antarctica during 2009-2018.

“Until recently, experts attributed these changes to climate change”

The profound ice loss from West Antarctica’s Thwaites Glacier has by itself been responsible for about four percent of the global sea level rise in recent decades.

Possibly due to allegiance to “consensus” statements about anthropogenic global warming, it was still common for scientists to believe this glacier melt was due to the “warming” in Western Antarctica (that, as noted above, curiously disguised itself as cooling).

But a new study and its AAAS/Science press release throw more cold water on the notion that humans are driving ice melt trends in Antarctica, as “there is a conspicuously large amount of heat from Earth’s interior beneath the ice” in the very locations where the ice melt is most pronounced.

Image Source: AAAS

The direct transfer of heat can facilitate basal melting and control ice rheology and basal sliding

While the Earth’s crust has an average thickness of about 40 km, in the region of the Thwaites, Pine Island, and Pope Glaciers, the anomalously thinner crust (10 to 18 km) more readily exposes the base of this regional ice to 580°C tectonic trenches.

The “elevated geothermal heat flow band is interpreted as caused by an anomalously thin crust underlain by a hot mantle,” which is exerting a “profound influence on the flow dynamics of the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet.”

Yet another claim made by anthropogenic global warming enthusiasts has been interred by scientific observation.
