At http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/09/12/un-global-warming-propaganda-campa... ... the attempt to keep the CAGW bandwagon rolling is changing tack as we approach this year's Climate Summit in New York, the annual bean feast which sees the draining of lots of wine bottles and the talking themselves senseless. They are under pressure as the world has stopped warming and the cat is out of the bag. Hence, the latest wheeze.

At http://quadrant.org.au/opinion/doomed-planet/2009/11/john-l-daly/ ... Australian John Izzard looked back on the world's first blogger to get serious about the global warming scam. John Daly was born in Bournemouth and served in the merchant navy as a radio operator - and later migrated to Australia for a better life. Like Peter Warlow of SIS he was totally unimpressed by the Greenhouse Theory. At http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2014/09/06/john--izzard-a-retrospective-o... ...
At http://dailycaller.com/2014/09/02/study-the-lower-troposphere-has-not-wa... ... a new paper by Ross McKitrick of the University of Guelph in Canada, claims there has been no warming of the lower troposphere for the last 26 years (the length of the satellite record). It is, of course, a computer simulation of data, a statistical exercise if you like, but contradicts almost everything that alarmists have been squawking about over the same time period.
Jennifer Marohasy appears to be on full song and has informed her email subscribers of more stations in distress status, in Australia. These have had their early hand written temperatures altered by the homogenisation process, a computer algorithm that kicks in each month. At Bourke, in January of 1909, the highest temperature in Australia was recorded (remembering that the Australian state is very recent), at 51.7 degrees celsius. However, historical records are being changed by the homogenisation process, and not only that, lots of the old temperature data has simply been ditched.
Meteorologist Joe Bastardi has consistently argued against CAGW over the years as he has a method of including weather patterns in the past of determining present weather - and has earned a good reputation for bringing home the turkey. These past records are mainly 20th century so he is well aware that temperatures were just as warm in the 1930s as they were in the 1990s, and this is the pattern he has deduced.
At http://phys.org/print326994700.html ... we have an interesting story sent in by member William Thompson. He was fascinated by the fact there is actually a conflict of opinion regards global warming - between models and reality. An article in PNAS by Zhengyu Liu of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a variety of co-authors. They seem to have done the research ostensibly at the instigation of the IPCC. Why? It all revolves around an article in the journal Science published last year which claimed that for the last 7000 years global temperatures have been cooling.
A piece of news that has been causing some feelings of grief can be found at http://news.discovery.com/history/archaeology/mysterious-earthen-rings-p... ... which is all about human made earth structures, ditches and circular formations, found in the Amazon rainforest of Bolivia, and apparently were there before the jungle - which is the mystery.
At http://phys.org/print323856790.html ... there is a report on study that derives from an ice core section. It was analysed for various chemical traces in a laboratory (several cores from different locations on Antarctica) and the results are said to be an accurate and precise recontruction of historic volcanic sulphate emissions - in the southern hemisphere.
Mainstream media with their very serious face expression firmly stuck to the front of their heads have informed the world that penguins are on the verge of a cataclysmic decline as a result of global warming - even though the Antarctic sea ice is greater than it was and the Antarctic ice cap is as sound as it could possibly ever be.
At http://phys.org/print321534287.html ... according to recent CAGW hype we should all be scared - the West Antarctic ice sheet is melting. In reality the problem involves the Thwaites glacier - but that has been enough to make a stir (in spite of the fact Antarctic sea ice is growing year on year). Now, we have a paper that actually explains what is happening with the Thwaites glacier - and global warming is not responsible.
