Climate change news

As Is

There were 485 scientific papers published in 2017 that support a sceptical position on climate alarmism. Is the climate consensus crumbling? See http://notrickszone.com/2018/01/04/485-scientific-papers-published-in-20... ... 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 http://notrickszone.com/2017/12/04/whistleblower-scientists-psmsl-data-a... ... 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 www.space.com/38844-nasa-satellites-track-breathing-earth.html ... 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 https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2017/11/14/how-green-deleg... ... 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 http://notrickszone.com/2017/11/09/new-paper-most-modern-warming-includi... ... 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 www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?release=2017-291 ... 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.

climate policy and wildlife

At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2017/11/04/will-climate-change-controver... ... although the political story is interesting there is something else that may interest SIS members, a video of Benny Peiser talking to Fritz Vahrenholt on renewables and the effects on nature and wildlife. Benny used to be a member of the SIS council - back in the old days when he was a bit younger and all that. Scroll down to the first comment, by Oldbrew.

Scamming the People

At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2017/11/01/energy-customers-foot-the-bil... .. yes, the headline reads, energy customers footing the bill for our failed climate policy - as perpetuated by the politico class steered on such a course by the Green Blob (via lobbying and countless doom mongering articles by so called scientists). Obviously, he that can afford a few roof top solar panels avoids being scammed, to some extent, but we all pay the costs passed on to business by the price we pay for goods made in this country. No wonder Chinese prices look so attractive.
