Climate change news

Sea Levels

It seems that even Yahoo (csn) news have picked up on the German sceptic blog No Tricks Zone as we are now told Kenneth Richard posted an essay there that quotes four recent journal articles that show sea levels have risen very little in recent years and show no sign of picking up at all. Go to www.yahoo.com/news/m/dda283dc-59da-3613-b879-8c0ca8449014/ss_four-studie... ... and the original post at http://notrickszone.com/2016/09/01/new-papers-confirm-sea-levels-arent-r...

Wiki Thought Police

At http://notrickszone.com/2016/09/13/massive-cover-up-exposed-285-papers-f... ... which all boils down to the activities of one of Wiki's self appointed mainstream patrollers of the internet, a certain self righteous chap who has been filling his pockets big time. It's a laudatory story and should, if common sense was common, bring down the CAGW mantra - but it won't. The pillock will ride again - and again (providing the faithful with the news they want to hear, rather than reality).

Sun spots and climate

At http://phys.org/print358186778.html ... sun spot numbers have come up again recently with scientists realising activity on the Sun may affect earth's climate and should be part of their modelling process. This is being done without including the role of the solar wind impacting with earth's ionosphere to any great degree - but it is a beginning. It is worth going back a few months and looking at an earlier study that updated sun spot history.

Easter Island again

Somebody else that does not buy the idea Easter Islanders soiled their own nest as proposed by environmentalists a few years ago. It's getting pretty clear they invented the idea to sell their politicised theory that humans are breeding so fast we will shortly run out of resources and there will be global warfare as nations compete for the dwindling raw materials vital to modern life (and that is without taking into account the food issue).

Small Reactors

Could every town have its own small nuclear reactor - see www.climatechangenews.com/2016/07/27/could-every-uk-town-have-a-small-nu... ... as an alternative strategy to building large and expensive nuclear plants such as Hinckley Point. The nuclear industry see the UK as a spearhead as we are getting perilously close to regular black outs. However, looking at it from a non partisan view I would think the security issues would be a major problem - and one of the commenters says much the same thing.

Green Games

At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2016/08/04/the-us-renewable-fuel-standar... ... is a bit of old fashioned investigative journalism by Marita Noon and Christine Lakatos. Those with special access (crony capitalists) and influence (lobbyists) have cashed in on various green energy programmes and benefited from the mandates by politicians,  the rules as set and the regulations confirmed. Its a huge scheme - with huge profits.

conference

Upcoming climate conference is being advertised on the web, but with a difference. This one is sceptical of climate science claims and climate models and bloated hot air from stale people. It has some cutting edge science, the redoubtable Piers Corbyn,  and lots of evidence contrary to the mainstream money laundering operation.

cooked alive

At http://phys.org/print388854293.html ... video surveillance at solar power towers in California have revealed flying animals such as birds and bats and various insect species on the wing, from bees to butterflies, dragonflies and wasps etc are killed by intense heat (cooked in flight and seared to a cinder). It seems Greens are not too concerned with wildlife in spite of what they spout self righteously - and we all know they couldn't give a fig for those knee deep in fuel poverty.

snout of glacier

In Down to Earth 96 (August 2016, ISSN 0969 3408), we have an article by geologist Brian Ellis who has been looking at records and visiting the site of a glacier that once filled the Nigard Valley in Norway, one of the outflows from the major Jostedal ice cap north of Sogn fiord. It goes back to the Little Ice Age and concerns documents of landowners complaining that tenant farmers had not paid their rent and court records from the same farmers who complain their farm is being overcome by advancing glaciers.

Back to Front Brains

We seem to get a lot of people thinking in a lopsided manner nowadays - but it seems climate scientists take the biscuit in this department (or should that be a tin of biscuits or cookie jar). At https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/07/24/nasa-global-warming-observations-... ... the climate scientists seem to be quite blatant now with their tricks and spin and don't even mind letting the sceptics know first hand they are fiddling the books. Why?
