Nobody Denies Climate Change

"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


Dr Mariana Alves-Pereira – how to test for the effects of low-frequency turbine noise


maria Dr Maria Alves-Pereira: explains why turbine generated low-frequency noise is so annoying inside homes.


Dr Mariana Alves-Pereira of the Lusofona University in Portugal, has degrees in physics, biomedical engineering and a PhD in environmental science. Her team has been researching vibroacoustic disease since 1980 – initially focussed on the low frequency noise (LFN) that impacted aeronautical technicians.

Late in 2013, Dr Alves-Pereira presented a case study from Portugal where a family was found to be exposed to LFN caused by the operation of nearby wind turbines (2006-2013). On-Off testing showed the increase in LFN inside the home was indeed associated with turbine operation. Medical tests showed the people who were living inside the home had impaired brain function in relation to responding to stimuli as well as their control of breathing.

In the balance of the post we’ve set out the transcript of Dr Alves-Pereira’s presentation and the slides she relied on (for the full…

World’s Most Expensive Joke: $2 Trillion Squandered on Wind & Solar (So Far)…


The point, if there was one, of throwing hundreds of $billions in subsidies at wind and solar was to slash emissions of carbon dioxide gas. Taxpayers and power consumers who are on the receiving end of the bill for all this environmental piety would, after almost 20 years, be entitled to ask just how much bang they’re getting for their buck?

The short answer is: not much.

STT leaves the battle over carbon dioxide gas to others.

Our view is pretty simple: if a naturally occurring beneficial trace gas, essential for all life on earth, really is killing the planet, then there is only one available solution. And that’s nuclear power.

In 2018, if a climate alarmist is still waging war on CO2 (although he’ll call it ‘carbon’) and not talking about nuclear power, you know you’re dealing with a deluded crank.

One character who’s still pretty fired up…

Speak loudly and carry a busted hockey stick

Watts Up With That?

by Walter Starck (in Quadrant Online)

The average temperature for the Earth, or any region or even any specific place is very difficult to determine with any accuracy.  At any given time surface air temperatures around the world range over about 100°C. Even in the same place they can vary by nearly that much seasonally and as much as 30°C or more in a day. Weather stations are relatively few and located very irregularly. Well maintained stations with good records going back a century or more can be counted on one’s fingers. Even then only maximum and minimum temperatures or ones at a few particular times of day are usually available.  Maintenance, siting, and surrounding land use also all have influences on the temperatures recorded.

The purported 0.7°C of average global warming over the past century is highly uncertain. It is in fact less than the margin of error in…

July Arctic Ice Surprise

Science Matters

Arctic ice July07to18

Early in July, a divergence of 2018 surplus ice resembled a hockey stick temporarily.  Though the blade later drooped downward, ice extent remained above average throughout July.  The graph above shows 2018  300k km2 above the 11 year average for July (2007 to 2017 inclusive).  Only 2015 and 2008 had a higher July monthly average extent.  Note that SII (NOAA’s Sea Ice Index) was lower by 436k km2 in 2018, and SII 11 yr. average is lower by 264k km2.

Arctic day 212

The surprise:  This is the first 2018 month above the average.  Indeed March 2018 (annual maximum) was almost 500k km2 lower than March 11 yr. average.  But reduced rates of melting in May, June and July have resulted in more ice extent than most other recent Julys.  At end of July, 2018, 2017 and 11 yr. average are close together, with SII 600k lower and 2007 with 824k km2 less…

Role of Intense Heat From Volcanoes Needs Consideration in Climate Change/Global Warming

I'm starting to call these things “heat polluters” when it comes to climate change. They certainly contaminate the temperature record. I don't think scientists consider the heat they produce in the historical temperature record and in climate models. While it's good to consider the pollution effects of ash plumes, etc., the effect of the heat … Continue reading Role of Intense Heat From Volcanoes Needs Consideration in Climate Change/Global Warming

Previously unsuspected volcanic activity confirmed under West Antarctic Ice Sheet at Pine Island Glacier


By Paul Homewood

From National Science Foundation:


June 27, 2018

Tracing a chemical signature of helium in seawater, an international team of scientists funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the United Kingdom’s (U.K.) Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has discovered a previously unknown volcanic hotspot beneath the massive West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS).
