Greenland’s Summers Surprisingly Cooling Over Past Decade…Driven By Natural Oceanic Cycles

Greenland’s Summers Surprisingly Cooling Over Past Decade…Driven By Natural Oceanic Cycles

No Tricks Zone By P. Gosselin | June 12, 2022 Science Daily here reports: “Climate changes in the tropical Pacific have temporarily put the brakes on rapid warming and ice melting in Greenland.“ Hat-tip: Klimaschau Science Daily adds: “A puzzling, decade-long slowdown in summer warming across Greenland has been explained by researchers at Hokkaido University in Japan. Their observational analysis and computer simulations revealed that changes in sea surface temperature in the tropical Pacific Ocean, thousands of miles to the south, trigger cooler summer temperatures across Greenland. The results, published in the journal Communications Earth & Environment, will help improve …

We Should Not Compare Electricity Sources Using Nameplate Ratings

We Should Not Compare Electricity Sources Using Nameplate Ratings

Jan. 29, 2022 Misleading are the public relations efforts intending to make people feel good about weather dependent electricity from wind and solar “taking root” and “replacing” traditional continuous uninterruptable means of making electricity. By Ronald Stein  Ambassador for Energy & Infrastructure, Irvine, California Tom Stacy Electricity System Analyst / Consultant, Ohio Comparing nameplate ratings of various electrical generating powers sources is comparable to using IQ as the only or most appropriate measure of the value of an employee to the company he or she works for…  If everyone had the same health level, skillset, and work ethic, it might suffice.  …

“ESG” = Extreme Shortages Guaranteed!

“ESG” = Extreme Shortages Guaranteed!

CFACT By Ronald Stein | January 17th, 2022 The Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors climbing up the agenda in the banking industry would have banks divest in fossil fuels.  This would lead toward a world like that in the 1800’s, the last time the world was “decarbonized”. Back in the 1800’s, we had no coal or natural gas power plants, and we had not discovered crude oil as something that could be manufactured into usable products. Life was hard and dirty, and most people never traveled 100-200 miles from where they were born, and life expectancy was short. Today, …

Greenland Sees Significant Snow, Ice Mass Loss Slowdown Over Past Decade, Danish Data Show

No Tricks Zone By P Gosselin on 14. November 2021 Data from the Danish Polar Portal shows Greenland ice melt slowing significantly over past 10 years. Increasingly rapid mass loss is a myth.  German climate site Die kalte Sonne here looks at whether Greenland is really melting faster or not in its 78th climate and energy video (3rd segment). Satellite measurement has allowed accurate measurements over the years and so reliable trends are detectable. Greenland has added mass since July Over the past year, since September 2020, Greenland has seen a number of heavy snowfalls, as depicted by the solid …

UNSUPPORTABLE CLAIM: More than 99.9% of studies agree: Humans caused climate change

UNSUPPORTABLE CLAIM: More than 99.9% of studies agree: Humans caused climate change

WUWT By Charles Rotter | Oct. 19, 2021 More than 99.9% of studies agree: Humans caused climate change Peer-Reviewed Publication CORNELL UNIVERSITY ITHACA, N.Y. – More than 99.9% of peer-reviewed scientific papers agree that climate change is mainly caused by humans, according to a new survey of 88,125 climate-related studies. The research updates a similar 2013 paper revealing that 97% of studies published between 1991 and 2012 supported the idea that human activities are altering Earth’s climate. The current survey examines the literature published from 2012 to November 2020 to explore whether the consensus has changed. “We are virtually certain …

Who Erased The Medieval Warm Period?

No Tricks Zone 2. September 2021 Written by: a Die kalte Sonne scientist/IPCC 6th report reviewer (Translation, edited and subheadings by P. Gosselin) The latest UN report distorts climate history. The tracks lead to Bern, Switzerland. In the Middle Ages, it was similarly warm in Switzerland and other parts of Central Europe as it is today. The so-called Medieval Warm Period (MWP) is scientifically well documented in the region: Between 800 and 1300 A.D., many Alpine glaciers shrank dramatically and some were even shorter than today. The tree line shifted upward. Permafrost thawed in high alpine regions that are still …

The Truth About Heat Waves

The Truth About Heat Waves

By Jim Steele | July 12, 2021 For those who truly want to be guided by science, put aside the climate crisis hysteria. We can explain the natural dynamics of all heat waves by simply knowing 1) how heat is transported along the earth’s surface; 2) how heat is transported vertically; 3) how solar heating changes; and 4) how the greenhouse effect varies. Below is a map of global temperature anomalies for the year 2014 that illustrates natural climate dynamics. There is no uniform warming that might be expected from a global blanket of greenhouse gases. Across the globe, surface …

The New Pause lengthens by another 2 months to 6 years 2 months

The New Pause lengthens by another 2 months to 6 years 2 months

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley | June 2, 2021 The effect of the small la Niña southern oscillation is waning. Nevertheless, the New Pause has lengthened from 6 years to 6 years 2 months in the UAH data: HadCRUT4, after a little prodding, has updated its monthly dataset with three months of new data, taking us up to March 2021. The New Pause in the HadCRUT4 data has lengthened to 7 years 1 month: How, then, have the real-world data behaved in comparison to the models’ predictions reported by IPCC (1990)? Here is IPCC’s prediction: Since IPCC’s prediction of 1.8 …

EIA: U.S. CO2 Emissions Declined 11% in 2020 – No Change in Rising Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

EIA: U.S. CO2 Emissions Declined 11% in 2020 – No Change in Rising Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

WUWT by Anthony Watts | April 16, 2021 Climate change action proponents regularly tell us we have to reduce our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to prevent “climate change”, even to the point of curtailing industry, travel, and food consumption. Fortunately, a real-world test of just those very things happened in 2020 due to the COVID-19 related lockdowns. In a report released April 12th by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) the Monthly Energy Review, they report that energy-related CO2 emissions decreased by 11% in the United States in 2020 primarily because of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions. …

Inside the Church of Climate

Inside the Church of Climate

American Institute for Economic Research | Robert L. Bradley Jr. – April 2, 2021 At an environmental forum, Julian Simon once asked: “How many people here believe that the earth is increasingly polluted and that our natural resources are being exhausted?” After a roomful of hands shot up, Simon then asked: “Is there any evidence that could dissuade you?” Encountering silence, he followed up: “Is there any evidence I could give you—anything at all—that would lead you to reconsider these assumptions?” After more silence, Simon answered: “Well, excuse me. I’m not dressed for church.” Today’s Church of Climate holds three …
