- Weather Channel Co-Founder: Efforts to Prove Global Warming Have ‘Failed’ (Truth Revolt, Oct 22, 2014):

“Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant greenhouse gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed.”

The co-founder of the Weather Channel and climate expert John Coleman recently wrote an open letter directly attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, arguing that attempts to prove man-made climate change “have failed” and that political agendas rather than science are now driving the “scientific” conversation.

Here’s an excerpt of from the open letter (via Express News): Continue reading »

- Up to 80cm of snow this week in Switzerland (Ice Age Now, Oct 26, 2014):

80 cm is 31½ inches – That’s thigh-deep.


The snow fell down to 1000m (which is close to the valley floor in many Swiss regions), but due to the early time of the season, the warmth of the ground means that melting from below took place up to 2000m.

  • Urner Alpen, Glarner Alpen and Nordbunden: 60 to 80 cm
  • remainder of the northern Alps from the Berner Oberland to Liechtenstein, Mittelbunden and the Lower Engadin valley: 30 to 60 cm
  • other regions up to 30 cm, but the extreme south remains precipitation free

After the snowfall ended, freezing levels rose to 3400m, which means that this snowfall, as is normal in late October, will mostly melt way, with only the higher deposits benefitting from freeze-thaw cycles to create a permanent snowbase. Continue reading »

Kazakhstan – Harvesting under 20 cm of snow and minus 10 degrees C (Ice Age Now, Oct 23, 2014):

What grains they collect now can only be used to feed the cattle.


“Of course the MSM in the Netherlands do not bring this news,” says reader. “Snow in Austria and in Sweden? We don’t hear it on the television news, we don’t read it in the big newspapers. Snow in Russia? It is not mentioned. The private plane of the CEO of the French oil company Total crashed on Vnukovo Airport after a collision with a snow blower. Nobody says: Hey, how come we are not being told that there was snow? Why else would a snowblower be on the runway?”


Despite the nearly 20-cm (8-inch) layer of snow on the grain fields of Northern Kazakhstan the harvesters keep working. The snow and cold cannot stop the combine because about 20% of the crop still remains in the fields, reported television channel CTC.

For farmers this year turned out to be difficult. Spring experienced drought, summer torrential rains, and now early autumn snow. But the work does not stop in bad weather and frost. Continue reading »

In the mountainous Karakoram region of Asia the glaciers aren’t melting. If anything, some are expanding, says this article on LiveScience.

“It’s been a source of controversy that these glaciers haven’t been changing while other glaciers in the world have,” said study researcher Sarah Kapnick, a postdoctoral researcher in atmospheric and ocean sciences at Princeton University. Continue reading »

Headlined ” Ice could cause grief for Antarctic vessels,” this story tries to blame global warming for the record sea-ice around Antarctica.  

“As the icebreaker Aurora Australis sets off from Hobart on its maiden mission for the summer season, the bright orange vessel has been stocked with extra supplies in case of hold-ups.

“For the first time since satellite records began in 1979 Antarctic sea ice has passed the 20 million square kilometre mark, voyage manager Robb Clifton says. Continue reading »

From the article:

temperatures_fahrenheit

“The problem with that argument is that we experienced the bulk of that warming between 1979 and 1998 . . . since then, we’ve actually had temperatures DROPPING!

As can be seen in this chart, we haven’t seen any global warming for 17 years.”


There Is No Global Warming ( Moneynews, Oct 18, 2014):

You’ve heard how the Earth is rapidly heating up . . . causing drought, famine, and mayhem.

For sure, Al Gore and the media encourage you to jump on the global warming bandwagon every time there is a heat wave or when a photo of a lone polar bear floating on an iceberg emerges.

But how much has the world really warmed? Continue reading »

“The snow in Siberia is piling up, and if it keeps coming, people in New York may have to bundle up this winter,” says Bloomberg.

There’s a theory that the amount of snow covering Eurasia in October is an indication of how much icy air will sweep down from the Arctic in December and January, pouring over parts of North America, Europe and East Asia. Continue reading »

- NASA Stumped – Deep oceans have not warmed since at least 2005 (Ice Age Now, Oct 8, 2014):

Oops – Bad news for alarmists – The deep ocean may not be hiding heat after all – How to explain the 18-year hiatus in “global warming” now?


Deep oceans have “not warmed measurably”

According to NASA, “the cold waters of Earth’s deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years.”

“When scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013, they found that “the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably,” the space agency announced in a press release on Monday.

says the Hays (Kansas) Daily News.


The Daily News reported that an all-time (114-year) record was broken on September 13, 2014, when the thermometer dipped to 31 degrees F.

The low of 31 degrees not only was a new record for the day, but a new record for the first frost of the fall. Continue reading »

RFK Jr. - DiCaprio

- RFK, Jr. wants me jailed … as a war criminal! (Ice Age Now, Oct 6, 2014):

Wealthy Hollywood and other elites demand that other people change their lifestyles, to protect the planet from over-hyped “catastrophic manmade climate change.”

It was a close call, but my favorite marcher on New York City’s Avenue of the Self-Righteous, however, was Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. He thinks people like me “should be in jail … with all the other war criminals” – for the “crime” of effectively explaining that humans are not causing “dangerous global warming” …  that climate change is natural … and that the policies advocated by Mr. Kennedy and his anti-capitalist comrades are the real threat to the world’s poor and downtrodden.

He wants me to go to jail, even while AGW alarmists continue advocating anti-human policies that will lead to energy-deprivation, poverty, misery, disease and early death in so many countries.


RFK, Jr. wants me jailed … as a war criminal!

Perhaps he should serve time for eco-manslaughter and crimes against humanity?

By Paul Driessen

The “people’s climate march” was notable for the amazing energy, economic and climate illiteracy displayed by the mostly young people parading along New York City streets September 21.

Their chants, rants and placards demanded that we stop climate change (that’s been ongoing throughout Earth and human history), eliminate fossil fuels (that supply 80% of the energy that makes their modern living standards possible), ban fracking (which is largely responsible for reducing the carbon dioxide emissions they blame for global warming that ended at least 18 years ago), and abolish capitalism!

Some of the absurdities can be enjoyed here, here, here and here. Among my personal favorites: Continue reading »

- Temperatures were warmer than today for most of the past 10,000 years (Ice Age Now, Sep 15, 2014):

25 May 10 – The revamped cap-and-trade (control-and-tax) bill that Senators Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) are trying to foist on the American public is predicated on a flat-out lie.

The control-and-tax proponents would have you believe that our planet has been enduring unprecedented global warming (now coyly referred to as “climate change”), but the facts do not bear that out. Facts. Oh, those damnable facts.

Look at this chart.

Easterbrook-Natural_global_warming
Created by Cuffy and Clow in 1997, and based on Greenland ice core records, this chart shows global temperatures for the past 15,000 years.

You’ll see that today’s benign climate is not even close to being the warmest on record.

Not even close.

Temperatures have been warmer than today for almost all of the past 10,000 years. Continue reading »

- Martini Meltdown (Ice Age Now, Sep 29, 2014):

Sea-ice in the Arctic. That ice ain’t melting and the polar bears are thriving.


Martini Meltdown

By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

The Sunday Times has reached a new height of incoherence with its science editor’s, (Jonathan Leake) column on Arctic ice cap in ‘death spiral.’

Nothing could be further from the truth. The ice cover in the Antarctic has recently reached a new all-(recorded)-time extent and the ice cover in the Arctic appears to be on a similar path. No wonder as the frost-free days in the Arctic, above 80 N have been fewer in the last two summers and the last winter in North America was brutally cold and long. Continue reading »

Elitists Stage ‘Biggest Ever’ Climate Change March …


The-Great-Gatsby

- ‘Historic': 300,000+ March in NYC for Climate Action (Common Dreams, Sep 21, 2014)

- World stages ‘biggest ever’ climate change march (PHOTOS, VIDEO) (RT, Sep 21, 2014):

Not even a gloomy sky could dampen the spirits of climate activists Sunday, as up to 310,000 marched through New York City pushing for international action against global warming. Thousands of rallies across the world called on governments for change.

Described by organizers as the largest climate-related event in the history of the planet, the People’s Climate March had people lined up across nearly 30 New York City blocks before the event began. According to organizers, the crowd’s numbers easily blew past original projections, which estimated that some 100,000 would attend.

Among the participants were high-profile names such as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore, and actor Leonardo DiCaprio – a newly appointed UN representative. Local presence was also strong, with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joining the procession, as well as City Council. Continue reading »

- Global Un-Warming? Antarctic Sea-Ice Reaches Record High Levels (ZeroHedge, Sep 15, 2014):

In what appears to be an awkward moment of uncomfortable fact, ABC reports satellite imagery reveals an area of about 20 million square kilometres covered by sea ice around the Antarctic continent – the highest level of coverage since records began. This is the 3rd year in a row that the sea ice coverage has reached a record level – increasing at 1.5% each decade since 1979. However, there is another side to this, as the area covered in sea ice expands scientists have said the ice on the continent of Antarctica which is not over the ocean continues to deplete. The climate is changing, one way or the other.
