"Climate change denial" is a straw man phrase. Nobody denies climate change. What's being questioned is man-made climate change caused by man's 3% annual contribution to the total volume of CO2 emissions. It's disingenuous for alarmists to say that we must accept a "97% consensus" of scientists but nature's 97% annual contribution to the total … Continue reading Nobody Denies Climate Change
HANSEN 1988 CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY
WITH COMMENTARY AFTER PARAGRAPH# 29
- Congressional Testimony of Dr. James Hansen, June 23, 1988
On June 23, 1988, James Hansen of the NASA Goddard Space Institute gave testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
- Opening Statement to the Committee, by Dr. James Hansen, Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies: Mr. Chairman and committee members, thank you for the opportunity to present the results of my research on the greenhouse effect which has been carried out with my colleagues at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. I would like to draw three main conclusions. Number one, the earth is warmer in 1988 than at any time in the history of instrumental measurements. Number two, the global warming is now large enough that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect…

The exact opposite of forecasts from NOAA, the past seven months had the coldest October-April afternoons in the US in over a century. It was also the wettest. In this video, Tony Heller shows how many problems this creates for climate alarmists. Thjs video also replaces an earlier version in which he incorrectly stated that it was the coldest on record.
Stray current from French wind turbines is killing cattle and their owners are furious. Electricity in the wrong place at the wrong time is a natural born killer. For the best part of a century electricity was generated in an orderly, systematic manner. Over the last decade or so obsession with wind and solar has led to generation chaos, on every level.
Having a field full of 300 tonne monsters, 200m tall with 60m blades, capable of generating 3-5MW, simply isn’t compatible with a whole range of agricultural pursuits. Croppers can no longer use aerial spraying to control pests and weeds, for example.
Horses, nervous creatures at the best of times, find the pulsing cacophony intolerable (see our post here).
But, for French beef farmers, it’s what’s discharged below ground that’s doing the damage to their dwindling herds.
French farmers say their cattle are dying from electricity generated by…

I find this whole event extremely disturbing...the left has not left Election 2016 behind. Our liberties are at stake here. There are people actually condemning the kids for wearing MAGA hats...and participating in a Right to Life march - IN A FREE COUNTRY...because it's too dangerous. But who is making it dangerous? Not the right. … Continue reading OFF TOPIC: Nathan Phillips says “School chants should be in school”

A careful look at the early 20th century global warming, which is almost as large as the warming since 1950. Until we can explain the early 20th century warming, I have little confidence IPCC and NCA4 attribution statements regarding the cause of the recent warming.

Booker runs with the North Devon AONB story this week:
Such a national treasure is the coast of North Devon that for 50 years it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB); with the local authorities required to produce successive management plans to protect it.
But their latest version strikes a curious new note. “One of the most significant pressures on the environment of South West England,” they now say, is “climate change”, as “reflected in hotter and drier summers, warmer and wetter winters with more extreme weather and increased flood risk, compounded by sea level rise”. If this rings a bell, it is that it precisely echoes claims long familiar from the Met Office.
But where is the evidence to support them? That meticulous analyst Paul Homewood, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, has checked each claim against graphs compiled from the Met Office’s own…

NoTricks covers a new paper that demonstrates that recent warming has been due to natural factors, and that we are now entering a new deep cooling period:
Fête des Neiges de Montréal 2019 | Montreal
“It’s never too cold for Fete des Neige!”
– Christine Muschi | Montreal Gazette
BEING careful not to confuse ‘weather’ with ‘climate’, even though our warmist friends have no problem finding a direct link between heatwaves and ‘climate change’, every summer, there’s no escaping the irony of cancelling a snow festival due to extreme cold in the era of extreme
global warming climate change alarmism!
THE extreme irony highlighted by a support comment from Christine Muschi of the Montreal Gazette, before the cancellation – “It’s never too cold for Fete des Neige…”!
ORGANISERS disagree with Christine’s optimism and have cancelled the event on Sunday due to extreme cold and snow conditions :
“Although the majority of the Fête’s activities can be held despite difficult winter conditions, blowing snow, freezing cold…

“…despite the loss of good denning areas and a shrinking habitat for hunting, Svalbard’s bears seem to be doing fine.…The sea ice season is now several months shorter, and the ice edge typically lies several degrees further north than what was normal 20-40 years ago….Polar bears can survive long periods without food, provided they have accumulated a good fat reserve during the few months in spring and summer when sea ice is present, and seals are abundant.” [Jon Aars, Norwegian Polar Institute, 2018]
Jon Aars from the Norwegian Polar Institute has written an update on the status of Svalbard polar bears for the general public (The Barents Observer, 8 January 2019, republished from a story published by The Fram Centre in their newsletter: Population changes in polar bears: protected, but quickly losing habitat).

Apparently team climate fraud got tired of being accused of hiding the inconvenient pre-1979 Arctic sea ice data, which showed a sharp increase in sea ice during the 1970s. 1990 IPCC Report So they simply replaced it with fake data which shows a decrease during the 1970s. ice_minmax_n.png (1613×1148) No surprise there.
