- Blast of wintry weather to hit Britain…In August (Ice Age Now, Aug 20, 2014):
Forecasters warn of ‘coldest August spell in a century’
Parts of Britain are getting an unexpected dose of winter weather as gale force winds send temperatures plunging.
The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for northern England and Scotland, with Ireland also likely to be affected by gusts which “would not be unusual in the autumn and winter”.
Met office spokesman Calum Maccoll said there could even be frost in parts of Scotland as temperatures approach zero later in the week.
Maybe even snow! Continue reading »
- Trampling on Coal Country families (Ice Age Now, Aug 20, 2014):
“Obama and EPA are determined to destroy US coal, people’s lives and welfare be damned,” says Paul Driessen.
As President Obama and his Environmental Protection Agency continue waging war on coal, oil and gas – it is families in Coal Country, USA that are being hammered hardest.
“States that mine coal or use it to generate affordable electricity for homes, hospitals and factories are losing jobs, facing widespread power plant closures, and seeing their electricity prices climb higher and higher. The effects on people’s health and welfare grow steadily worse, but are ignored by EPA, which is fixated on “preventing dangerous manmade climate change,” at any cost. Continue reading »
- Life will be nasty, brutish and short (Ice Age Now, Aug 20, 2014):
“We’re ill-prepared if the iceman cometh,” writes Maurice Newman in The Australian.
“What if David Archibald’s book The Twilight of Abundance: Why Life in the 21st Century Will Be Nasty, Brutish, and Short turns out to be right?,” asks Newman, former ABC chairman and chairman of the Australian Prime Minister’s business advisory council.
“What if the warmth the world has enjoyed for the past 50 years is the result of solar activity, not man-made CO2?”
Newman points to Russian scientists at the Pulkovo Observatory, who “are convinced the world is in for a cooling period that will last for 200-250 years.”
He also refers to respected Norwegian solar physicist Pal Brekke, who “warns temperatures may actually fall for the next 50 years.” Continue reading »

“If Toronto’s Pearson International Airport weather station doesn’t hit 30.0ºC before the end of August — and it’s not looking like it will — this will be the first consecutive July and August that Pearson has not hit 30.0ºC+ since records began at Pearson in 1938 — that’s 76 years of data,” says Weather Network meteorologist Dayna Vettese.
Chilly temperatures appear to have settled into the region, making it feel like fall in some places.
- VIDEO: John Kerry tells starving Africans to refrain from creating new farms because they’d contribute to global warming (Ice Age Now, Aug 14, 2014):
A glimpse into Kerry’s twisted priorities.
When leaders from Africa and the U.S. convened in Washington, D.C., to discuss a wide range of issues affecting African nations, Secretary of State John Kerry gave us a glimpse into his twisted priorities.
During the “Resilience and Food Security in a Changing Climate” panel, Kerry noted that Africa faces a starvation problem. With thousands going to bed hungry each night, it’s undeniable that one of Africa’s largest problems is starvation.
Kerry claimed that “8,000 children die every day” and that one in four children face chronic hunger.
However, just minutes later, Kerry reminded the crowd that despite the starving children in Africa, they ought to refrain from creating new farms because it contributes to “climate change.”
“Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place.”

- Warnings about ocean acidification are completely misleading – and deliberately so (Ice Age Now, Aug 09, 2014):
“No honest chemist would claim the dissolving of the entire atmospheric mass of CO2 at once would make much difference to the pH of the oceans.”– Rosco Mac
Warnings about ocean acidification are completely misleading – and deliberately so
By Rosco Mac
Firstly, carbon dioxide in water is a very weak acid, whilst the ocean is a very stable buffer with a pH averaging around 8. The concentration of enough CO2 to significantly reduce that pH will not come from the atmosphere – there isn’t enough CO2 in the atmosphere to make much difference.
The mass of the oceans is 268 times the mass of the atmosphere
I can say this with confidence because the mass of the oceans is 268 times the mass of the atmosphere, and CO2 is currently only 0.04% of that.
No honest chemist would claim the dissolving of the entire atmospheric mass of CO2 at once would make much difference to the pH of the oceans.
Secondly, it is well known that an increase in temperature will reduce the solubility of CO2 in water. (The oceans are known as a carbon sink. When they’re cold, they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. When they warm, they release CO2 into the atmosphere. ed)
Warm up a carbonated drink and see what happens
Warm water naturally contains less CO2 than cold water. Warm up a carbonated drink and see what happens – the CO2 comes out of solution.
The oceans are outgassing CO2 due to the slight warming trend observed. The cause of this trend IS NOT known !
I find alarmists stunningly contradictory and amusing.
They point out the slight increasing trend in temperatures as alarming !
They point out the side effect of this slight increasing trend in temperatures – rising sea levels – as alarming !
Then they claim man’s CO2 emissions will increase ocean acidification as alarming.
But you simply cannot have it both ways – that is an “Inconvenient Truth” !!
Either the oceans are getting warmer and the CO2 concentration in seawater is decreasing – which means that ocean acidification by manmade CO2 from the atmosphere is complete BS !!
- or -
The manmade CO2 from the atmosphere IS dissolving in cooler oceans causing ocean acidification – which means that warming oceans and the associated sea level rises are BS !!
Take your pick – REAL SCIENCE says you can’t have both.
- It’s about the Money, Not the Climate (Ice Age Now, Aug 08, 2014):
“When you hear the President or a member of Congress talk about the climate, they are really talking about the scheme to generate revenue from it through taxation…” – Alan Caruba
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), the Irish poet and dramatist, wrote “Pray don’t talk to me about the weather. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else.”
These days, when some world leader or politician speaks of the climate—the weather is what is happening right now wherever you are—they are not talking about sunshine or rain. They are talking about a devilishly obscene way of raising money by claiming that it is humans that are threatening the climate with everything they do, from turning on the lights to driving anywhere.
If the history of ice ages is any guide, we could literally be on the cusp of a new one. Continue reading »
- The idea that man controls CO2 is “delusional nonsense,” says astrophysicist (Ice Age Now, Aug 6, 2014):
Video – “Satellite data shows clearly that for the last ten years temperatures have been falling,” says Piers Corbyn.
Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn on “The Myth of Man-Made Global Warming”
Piers Corbyn has received international acclaim for the accuracy of his long-range climate forecasts. Although we hear daily of a scientific consensus to the contrary, what does Piers make of mankind’s alleged role in affecting the climate on Earth?
Piers presented at the recent Electric Universe conference in Albuquerque New Mexico, which featured investigators from wide ranging disciplines who had come to a common conclusion. Namely, that the key to understanding so-called climate change is the electromagnetic connection between Earth and the Sun.
Here are some of the highlights of his talk.
“Carbon dioxide does not drive climate,” says Piers. “Rather, temperature changes in the oceans, in the long run, drive carbon dioxide levels.”
“There is no actual evidence for the CO2 theory. Termites emit ten times more CO2 than man. The idea that termites, or cows, or whatever you have, are going to hold still while man does his thing is completely absurd. The idea that man controls CO2 is actually delusional nonsense.”
“Climate has changed for millions of years. The only thing that’s different now is that man is claiming he’s doing it.”
What drives our climate? asks Piers. “Solar activity.”
When you’ve got periods of low solar activity, like now, two things happen. One thing is that the jet stream on average goes farther south, and the other is that it swings more wildly north to south. And that means we get much bigger extremes in temperature.
Central to Piers predictions is the recognition that the sun and earth are connected electromagnetically.
- 4,000-year-old forests beneath receding glaciers prove that it was much warmer than today (Ice Age Now, Aug 07, 2014):
The idea that we’re enduring “unprecedented” warming is totally false.
“Dr. Christian Schlüchter’s discovery of 4,000-year-old chunks of wood at the leading edge of a Swiss glacier was clearly not cheered by many members of the global warming doom-and-gloom science orthodoxy,” writes Larry Bell on newsmax.com.
“This finding indicated that the Alps were pretty nearly glacier-free at that time, disproving accepted theories that they only began retreating after the end of the little ice age in the mid-19th century.

Hmm. Does there seem to be any bias in that opening statement?
“A new study links a warmer climate with a greater chance of developing kidney stones,” the article continues. Continue reading »

- Ice ages triggered by solar activity – Video (Ice Age Now, July 29, 2014):
(Or lack thereof.)
We’ve had a total of eight mini-ice ages during the last 11,500 years (the Holocene), says Jan Theart. At least seven of these were triggered by low solar activity.
But look at how many of of those years were warmer than today! It was far warmer during both the Holocene Climate Optimum and the Roman Climate Optimum.
Anyone who tells you that our recent episode of warming was “unprecedented” is either lying or misinformed.

- NOAA – 28,504 Cold Records Set During Last Year (Sunshine Hours, July 24 2014):
28,504 Low Max Records were set in last 365 days according to the NOAA.
A “Low Max” means that the maximum temperatures for the day was the lowest it has ever been.
This indicates daytime cooling.
Only 13205 High Max records were set. That is over a 2:1 ratio. Brrr.
- Coolest Summer On Record In The US (Real Science, July 26, 2014):
The frequency of 90 degree days in the US has been plummeting for 80 years, and 2014 has had the lowest frequency of 90 degree days through July 23 on record. The only other year which came close was 1992, and that was due to dust in the atmosphere from Mt Pinatubo.

But just to make sure that the abysmal Q1 GDP which has now spilled over into Q2 and will likely see the US economy growing in the mid-2% range, has a sufficiently broad “excuse” in the third quarter of the year, here comes – in the middle of July - the polar vortex 2.0. As WaPo reports, “However you choose to refer to the looming weather pattern, unseasonably chilly air is headed for parts of the northern and northeastern U.S at the height of summer early next week.”

- Global warming is creating MORE ice: Antarctic levels reach a record high because of climate change, scientists claim (Daily Mail, July 5, 2014):
ANTARCTIC BEGAN MELTING 5,000 YEARS EARLIER THAN FIRST THOUGHT
The Antarctic ice sheet is more unstable than first thought with a new study suggesting melting began 5,000 years earlier than previously believed.
The study in May revealed that shrinking of the vast ice sheet accelerated during eight distinct periods between 20,000 and 9,000 years ago causing a rapid sea level rise.
During one period 14,600 years ago, melting glaciers released so many icebergs into the ocean that sea level rose 6.5ft (2 metres) in just 100 years.
The results provide the first clear evidence for dramatic melting in Antarctic’s and reflect predictions for the region’s future.
It also follows recent news that destabilisation of part of the West Antarctic ice sheet has already begun and could be ‘unstoppable.’

- Apollo Astronaut: Climate Alarmism Is the ‘Biggest Fraud in the Field of Science’ (CNS News, July 2, 2014):
Climate alarmism is “the biggest fraud in the field of science” and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9.
“Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it,” Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. “I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion.”
Cunningham rejects the notion of man-made climate, not only as fact – but also as even qualifying as an actual “theory”:
“In the media, it was being called a theory. Obviously, they didn’t know what it means to be a theory.”
“If we go back to the warmist hypothesis – not a theory, but, a hypothesis – they’ve been saying from the very beginning that carbon dioxide levels are abnormally high, that higher levels of carbon dioxide are bad for humans, and they thought warmer temperatures are bad for our world, and they thought we were able to override natural forces to control the earth’s temperature. So, as I’ve looked into those, that’s the problem that I’ve found, because I didn’t find any of those to be correct – and, they certainly were not a theory, it was just their guess at what they wanted to see in the data they were looking at.”
Cunningham urges Americans to look at the data and decide for themselves, instead of taking anyone else’s word for it: Continue reading »

- Global warming data FAKED by government to fit climate change fictions (Natural News, June 23, 2014):
When drug companies are caught faking clinical trial data, no one is surprised anymore. When vaccine manufacturers spike their human trial samples with animal antibodies to make sure their vaccines appear to work, we all just figure that’s how they do business: lying, cheating, deceiving and violating the law.
Now, in what might be the largest scientific fraud ever uncovered, NASA and the NOAA have been caught red-handed altering historical temperature data to produce a “climate change narrative” that defies reality. This finding, originally documented on the Real Science website, is detailed here.
We now know that historical temperature data for the continental United States were deliberately altered by NASA and NOAA scientists in a politically-motivated attempt to rewrite history and claim global warming is causing U.S. temperatures to trend upward. The data actually show that we are in a cooling trend, not a warming trend (see charts below). Continue reading »
- We’re already in a Mini-Ice age, says astrophysicist (Ice Age Now, May 25, 2014):
“Man-made CO2 ‘Global Warming’/Climate Change is a politically motivated lie and they know it.” – Piers Corbyn
The Wild Jet Stream (Mini-Ice-Age) era we are now in has nothing whatsoever to do with CO2, says astrophysicist and forecaster Piers Corbyn.
The hot weather which extended a long way North – and its rapid breakdown and the preceding Balkan floods – are PREDICTABLE extreme consequences of the wild jet stream, says Corbyn.

- Proof that we’re not enduring “unprecedented” warmin (Ice Age Now, May 25, 2014):
Are your leaders misguided? Or are they deliberately lying?
“Ancient trees emerge from frozen forest ‘tomb’,” reads the headline in the Juneau (Alaska) Empire. “Retreat of the Mendenhall Glacier reveals the remains of trees which grew more than 2,000 years ago.”
“Stumps from an ancient forest emerged in July from their ice tomb,” the article continues. “Some still have their bark.”
- Arctic Ice Brake-up is NASA’s ‘most deluded scare story ever’ (The Real Agenda news, May 14, 2014):
“Unstoppable break-up of SOME Antarctic Ice due to non-existent Global-Warming threatens sea level Rise in 200 years time,” says Piers Corbyn.
Western media alarmism has spiked this month after NASA ‘revealed’ that a large section of the Antarctic shell was breaking off and will soon make sea levels rise to cover us all. The year of mid-term elections seems to be the year of hyped politics as NASA and the U.S. government continues to spread the lies about man-made global warming.
In the most recent example of how out of proportion statements help scare people, NASA used cherry-picked data and speculation to say that a ‘gigantic’ piece of West Antarctica is now melting and falling into the sea. NASA did not mention anything about the state of the whole Antarctic & South Hemisphere, mainly because it does not fit the narrative and scare tactics of the climate change alarmists. One entity that has gone the extra mile to explain the reality of ice caps in the Antarctica was the most-respected National Snow and Ice Data Center.
In the graph below, the organization shows that, at least for the last 35 years, ice has been accumulating, not melting in the Southern Hemisphere. Continue reading »

Shows the part that disproves Al Gore false assumption on the realtionship between CO2 and temperature.
‘Rises in C02 lag 800 years behind temperature rises. So temperature is leading CO2 by 800 years!’
- Prof. Ian Clark
Massive climate changes are happening right now on planet earth for a multitude of reasons and this is not the place, nor do I have the time, to discuss all of them here.
I do NOT deny that the melting of Antarctic ice sheet will happen and is already happening.
However, I do Not believe that this is due to global warming.
There is no man-made global warming and there is not even global warming.
If the elitists are indeed successful with their global warming propaganda they will earn an awful lot of money.
Even an elite puppet like Al Gore would make billions:
Why would we trust the same people that rip us off all of the time, just because they are now pretending that they really do care for the planet?
They f*$$$$* don’t:
“I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of… how dangerous it is.”
- Al Gore
“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
- Paul Watson, Greenpeace
“We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.”
- leftist Senator Tim Wirth, 1993
“We have to offer up scary scenarios… each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.”
- Stephen Schneider, lead ipcc author, 1989
“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.”
- Sir John Houghton, first chairman of the IPCC
“The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
- Daniel Botkin, ex Chair of Enironmental Studies, UCSB
But these clowns seem to get away with everything:
And Al Gore really is ‘brilliant’:
Volcanoes all over the planet are going crazy ….
… and there are volcanoes under the ice …
- Active Volcano Found Under Antarctic Ice: Eruption Could Raise Sea Levels (National Geographic, Nov 18, 2013):
Inevitable eruption will speed up ice loss on frozen continent, study says.
A newly discovered volcano found buried beneath a thick layer of ice in Antarctica could speed up ice loss and raise global sea levels when it erupts, scientists say.
… and scientists have found “big variations in the temperature in the mantle across parts of Antarctica”:
- What’s Under Antarctica? Quake Waves Give First Look (livescience, April 6, 2012):
“We do see these big variations in the temperature in the mantle across parts of Antarctica that will have a big effect on the ice sheet,” Wiens said.
So for me it is volcanic activity that melts the Antarctic ice sheet.
And then there is this:
Now that in and of itself should cause climate change all over the planet, or not?
And how about the Arctic ice?
How come the Artic ice sheets are rapidly expanding?
The elitists know that the world is cooling and here is the Bilderberg group’s discussion agenda from 2010:
- Global Cooling and the New World Order (Telegraph):
“The 58th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010. The Conference will deal mainly with Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations.”
Yep, that’s right. Global Cooling.
Always ‘follow the money’:
And then there is the sun, which is and has been the only engine behind global warming and cooling:
“Whenever solar radiation has decreased and volcanic activity has increased, global temperatures suddenly plummet…often within weeks or months,” says climatologist Cliff Harris and meteorologist Randy Mann.
- Melting of Antarctic ice sheet and 3-meter sea level rise inevitable – study (RT, May 12, 2014):
Massive regions of the ice sheet that makes up West Antarctica have begun collapsing in a process that scientists have worried about for decades and fear is likely unstoppable.
Researchers warned that the accelerated pace of disintegration is expected to remain relatively slow over the next 100 years, although after that point it will speed up so fast that it could become a major issue for seaside cities. Ocean levels could rise by at least three meters, according to two papers scheduled for publication this week in the Science and Geophysical Research Letters. Continue reading »
