Wince when Saint Rachel is chimed

This phrase is used by Risk Monger in the second of the links below. The first link concerns the use of pesticides and the hullabaloo around the issue. The second link is more general and concerns the environmental movement in general and how politicians appear not to wish to tread on their toes. Squeamish politicos are all to common and in the EU squeamish bureaucrats are all part of the problem - courtesy of lobby groups and the Green Blob. Saint Rachel is a reference to Rachel Carson who wrote a book in the 1960s that racked up the anti-pesticide movement to full throttle.

Global Warming

It's been pretty cold in the US - especially in the NE. Over in the UK we have had some cold spells - nothing out of the ordinary (just normal winter weather). Elsewhere it has been very cold in Russia )again, not unusual), cold in Japan (in comparison with recent years) and monsier president appears to have got a dose of gloabl warming after weeks of saying he is going to combat it - and dip into his wallet (well, the wallet of the French people, that is). However, the creme egg is the Sahara. It had not snowed for 37 years when it snowed in 2016.

Greenland Getting Colder

The conspiracy continues, it would seem. At ... a guest author says, Greenland is getting colder but please, keep believing it is getting warmer. It would seem satellite measurements show parts of Greenland are getting colder - but climate scientists urge people to think in terms of this as a blip as climate models say Greenland 'should' be warming. The models don't lie.

Geothermal Greenland

Pierre Gosselin provides a guest post by Kenneth Richards which has some interesting information - especially if you've visited hot springs in Canada, a very cold part of the world. Well, Greenland is a lot colder than most of Canada and it too has geothermal hot springs - right under the glaciated region. Go to ... and well I never.

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.
