Climate change news

Virgin Weather Station

A German blog reports that in Germany there is one weather station that is intact and unchanged for 138 years. It has never been moved nor has it been corrupted by the urban heat island effect. Moreover, it has consistenly used the same instrumentation and computation method over that 138 years. This weather station is at the St Stephens Abbey in Augsburg - NW of Munich. Veteran German meteorologist Klaus Hager says there has been considerable temperature fluctuations from year to year - because nature is constantly changing, year to year.

Peter Warlow Vindicated

First of all, please note global warming has just got to the Sahara - see ... global warming has just got to the Sahara - for the second year in a row. Global warming is getting everywhere (see satellite image below) ...

As Is

There were 485 scientific papers published in 2017 that support a sceptical position on climate alarmism. Is the climate consensus crumbling? See ... or as is (alarmism still flourishes). Doubt is being cast on the idea co2 emissions are the control knob of climate - and on the efficacy of the those models. The 485 papers affirm the position that there are significant limitation and uncertainties inherent in our understanding of climate and climate change.

Roundup Reprieve

Monsanto's Roundup bug killer is very popular with farmers as well as backyard gardeners. It has a recipe laden with glyphosate. As a result of this activists have been lobbying the EPA to ban glyphosate in order to hurt Monsanto. They have never forgiven the company for its role in frankenstein food - modified crops. Risk Monger has been harping on about the activist role in the banning of glyphosate which would seriously impact farmers ability to provide pest free vegetables for the supermarkets - but in the European Union rather than the US.

Foul Play

At ... PSMSL data adjusters are manufacturing sea level rise where none exists - according to a new paper in Earth Systems and Environment. One of the authors is Clifford Ollier.

Earth Breathes

At ... we have a 5 minute NASA video plus a couple of pages of text - sent in by Robert. He pointed out how the snow/ice cover alternated between northern and southern hemispheres, a fact which has allowed CAGW people to dishonestly and constantly claim the ice caps are melting. In reality, in one of the hemispheres, the ice is melting - at the same time it is growing in the opposite hemisphere.

Climate Conference keeping warm on fossil fuels

At ... which takes us to a an investigative journalist who discovered the current Global Warming conference in Bonn (but hosted by Fiji) uses fossil fuels to heat the conference hall - diesel generators in fact. This comes on top of all the air flights generated to get to the venue - using fossil fuels. You can't make it up. These people are so up themselves they are upside down in logic.

Recent Warming

At ... a new paper claims that two thirds of climate warming since 1750 is due to solar causes - not what the doom mongers want to hear (or their paymasters in Renewables and the hedge fund managers invested in them). It seems the IPCC have shown a preference for modeled reconstructions of solar activity. This is rather strange but then this is climate science (mainly model generated).

Antarctic Volcanoes

There has been lots of talk about volcanoes beneath the West Antarctic peninsular and now we seem to have proof - see ... as a NASA study adds evidence that a geothermal source (a mantle plume) lies deep under Antartica's Marie Byrd Land. This may thus be able to explain why the West Antarctic peninsular has been unstable recently, in direct contrast to the large block of Antarctica which has stubbornly remained very cold and surrounded by lots of sea ice.
