If you’re curious what real intellectual bigotry looks like, look no further than this story from The College Fix which details the anti-science absurdities of today’s bigoted college professors.
According to the report, “Three professors co-teaching an online course called ‘Medical Humanities in the Digital Age’ at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs recently told their students via email that man-made climate change is not open for debate.”
In invoking their intellectual bigotry and anti-science stance, these three female professors cite the widely debunked false claim that “97% of climate scientists agree on climate change.” That statistic was fraudulently derived by a biased researcher hand-picking a few dozen email responses from an informal email survey that carries no scientific weight whatsoever (see below).

“Annual average temperatures over the Northern Hemisphere increased rather dramatically from about 1890 through 1940, but have been falling ever since.”
– NOAA 1974
“The poorest nations, already beset by man-made disasters, have been threatened by a natural one: the possibility of climatic changes …perhaps throughout the world. The implications for global food and population policies are ominous…”
– NOAA, 1974“Many climatologists have associated this drought and other recent weather anomalies with a global cooling trend and changes in atmospheric circulation which, if prolonged, pose serious threats to major food-producing regions of the world.”
– NOAA, 1974
“Some climatologists think that the present cooling trend may be the start of a slide into another period of major glaciation, popularly called an ice age.”
– NOAA 1974
So which should we be worried about? Cooling? Warming? An ice age?
In other words, not far from zero.
CO2 is very nearly 0% of the atmosphere
“Deniers” need to start attacking the fairy tale more aggressively, at the roots.
By Ray Kraft
How can a trivial 1 part per 10,000 increase in a trace gas (from 0.03% to 0.04%) cause any detectable, distinguishable, change in the climate? It makes no sense.
The world has fallen for the classical sophomoric fallacy that correlation = causation.
And then it’s invented all kinds of computerized climate change models to prove it. Continue reading »
With the supposed warmest year ever, here are seven locations where is has snowed or is still snowing in August 2016 in the Northern hemisphere indication a fast approaching brutally cold and snowy winter.

“Planes, cars and coal power plants make no difference to global warming.” – joannenova.com.
(Excerpts) – “Phil Jones told us that global temperatures kept heating at the same rate in the 1880s as they did in the 1920s as they did in the 1980s.“The warming isn’t any different when human CO2 emissions are small or massive. The rate of warming was the same in the 1920s when nearly half of all horsepower still came from horses. Indeed without any electricity at all, and no cars, humans “caused” warming which was as fast as a decade when a billion people flew in the sky. Continue reading »
The Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration jointly issued a new regulation last week that is meant to help protect the world from “climate change” by limiting “greenhouse gas emissions” and improving fuel efficiency in medium- and heavy-duty vehicles operated in the United States.
The 1,690-page regulation is approximately 700,000 words long.
A “regulatory impact analysis” published by EPA and NHTSA estimates the regulation will add an average of as much as $13,749 to the cost of a tractor truck and $1,370 to a trailer, making some tractor-trailer combinations $15,119 more expensive in 2027 than they would be under current regulations.

With strange floods, droughts and changing weather patterns globally, some areas are showing signs of the future of crop yield potential going forward to 2020. These are the areas that will continue to see losses YOY starting now.
The temperature of North Atlantic surface water is the main control on Europe’s climate, says David Archibald.
Unfortunately, that temperature has been dropping.
And how has Europe’s climate responded to the drop?
“This summer is not only behaving like fall, but even like winter,” says meteorologist Domink Jung.
Here’s a sampling:

In recent days, President Obama announced new “executive actions” on guns, that included language to shore up current federal law aimed at keeping mentally ill Americans from buying guns. Some skeptics of the president’s actions believe that, as is usually the case, there are ulterior motives behind his actions.
For example, some believe that the president’s order may include guidance on declaring people who disagree with Obama’s policies – like those regarding so-called “global warming” and “climate change” – as mentally unstable. Continue reading »
Liberal billionaire George Soros gave former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental group millions of dollars over three years to create a “political space for aggressive U.S. action” on global warming, according to leaked documents.
A document published by DC Leaks shows Soros, a Hungarian-born liberal financier, wanted his nonprofit Open Society Institute (OSI) to do more to support global warming policies in the U.S. That included budgeting $10 million in annual support to Gore’s climate group over three years.
“U.S. Programs Global Warming Grants U.S. Programs became engaged on the global warming issue about four years ago, at George Soros’s suggestion,” reads a leaked OSI memo. Continue reading »
And we wonder what is heating the oceans?
9 Aug 2016 – “The remnants of hundreds of thousands** of deep-sea eruptions lie on the ocean floor, deep below the surface of the water,” says this article from the BBC.“Almost 70% of the Earth’s crust is believed to be produced at mid-ocean ridges such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge,” the article continues. The Earth’s crust is 4 to 6 miles (7-10km) thick. Continue reading »

Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun.
The research suggests that the next three solar cycles will see solar activity reduce significantly into the middle of the century, producing conditions similar to those last seen in the 1600s – during the Maunder Minimum.
Some climate scientists have not welcomed the research and even tried to suppress the new findings.

“The global temperature is starting to decline as we go into the Mini Ice-Age
Good ice age page.”
We had descended into that beginning point as well as the sun was the heating driver of our planet, not CO2, not humans. And from this point forward, we’re going to have difficulties producing food globally to feed everybody.
That’s why the chaos is going on across the planet, from Venezuela to France.
That’s why there are so many distractions in the news; from the racial tension in the US to Brexit, to the refugee crisis across Europe, the South China Sea dispute to steer everybody heads away from all these cooling. And if you do just set all of these extractions aside and look back this way where they don’t want you to look, there is a major, major tsunami of societal changes coming due to lack of food production and the temperatures are just going to continue to DECREASE from this point forward along with our global population.

Summer snows fell in Sweden and a city in Saxony experienced its coldest temperature on record.
The Local also reported Ljungskile on the country’s west coast experienced the coldest day the area has seen in more than 100 years. Temperatures were below 47 degrees Fahrenheit Wednesday.
In Germany, the city of Carlsfeld was also hit by record low temperatures. The Local reported temperatures dropped to 34 degrees Fahrenheit — the coldest ever recorded in the town. Carlsfeld began recording temperatures in 1990.
The Bavarian town of Bad Königshofen saw near-record low temperatures for the month, hitting 34 degrees Fahrenheit as well, just above the record low set in 1987.

And CO2 levels were higher than today throughout almost all of history.
When you look at the above chart, you will see almost no correlation between atmospheric CO2 levels and temperature.
“The Late Carboniferous to Early Permian (315 mya — 270 mya) is the only time period in the last 600 million years when both atmospheric CO2 and temperatures were as low as they are today (Quaternary Period).
“Compared to former geologic times, our present atmosphere, like the Late Carboniferous atmosphere, is CO2- impoverished!” Continue reading »

Professor Valentina Zharkova at Northumbria University is being attacked by climate change proponents for publishing research suggesting there could be a 35-year period of low solar activity that could usher in an “ice age.” (I’ve posted previously about Professor Zharkova.)
Zharkova and her team of researchers released a study on sunspot modeling, finding that solar activity could fall to levels not seen since the so-called “Little Ice Age” of the 1600s. Zharkova’s conclusions may have huge implications for global temperature modeling, but her analysis is not accepted by some climate scientists. Continue reading »
“Snow-hit power lines could take weeks to fix,” says Radio New Zealand.
“We’re dealing with a metre of snow in some of those cross country areas,” said Unison power company spokesperson Danny Gough.
“It’s almost like a war zone – we’ve got poles that have just been been broken like twigs, trees and vegetation and all sorts of other rubble across the lines and the poles.”
Heavy snowfall leaves many areas isolated.
Many parts of the island remained isolated after 50 to 70 cm (20 to 28 inches) of snow closed highways.
Meanwhile, the temperature in the city of Queenstown, South Island, dropped to -6.5 ° C (the historical record for August is -7.8 ° C), making this one of the lowest levels recorded in the last hundred years! Continue reading »
