OFF TOPIC: Nathan Phillips says “School chants should be in school”

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”

Early 20th century global warming

Climate Etc.

by Judith Curry

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.

A Curious Omission–Booker


By Paul Homewood

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…

New Study: Modern Warming Was Driven By ‘Primarily Natural’ Factors – Global Cooling Has Now Begun


By Paul Homewood

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:

GLOBAL WARMING UPDATE : Montreal’s Fête Des Neiges (Winter Snow Festival) Cancelled Due To Extreme Cold!


fete des neiges - cancelled - extreme cold - climatism 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…

Svalbard polar bears doing fine with much less sea ice say Norwegian biologists


“…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).

Making The 1970s Fit The Narrative — Iowa Climate Science Education

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.

Recommended Read: Global Warming for the Two Cultures

Pragmatic Environmentalist of New York

I have the education, background and experience to independently evaluate the constant drum beat claiming imminent and inevitable climate catastrophe if we don’t immediately reduce our carbon footprint. I am a luke-warmer who believes that the sensitivity of climate to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions is at the bottom of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change range. At that level, climate catastrophe is a very unlikely possibility and the effect is much more likely to be benign.

Unfortunately it is very frustrating to hold my position because the media, politicians and advocacy groups have convinced many that we have to use renewables as a “solution” to what I think is a non-existent problem. As a result I am always looking for a good summary of the issues that I have with the imminent climate catastrophe narrative.

Reason and Logic are More Important Than Appeal to Authority.

If you want to know how deceitful the whole climate change scam is, take a look at what Al Gore pushed: " our modern country, the role of logic and reason no longer includes mediating between wealth and power the way it once did. It's now repetition of short, hot-button, 30-second, 28-second television ads. We … Continue reading Reason and Logic are More Important Than Appeal to Authority.
