Sea Levels are not rising! New Report reveals political interference

                          Professor Nils-Axel Morner from Stockholm has published an excellent paper on the SPPI (Science and Public Policy Institute  US)web site on sea level. Professor Morner was the chair of the sea level commission.
                             Sea level is measured by both tide gauges and since 1992 by satellite altimetry.  One of the keepers of the satellite record told Professor Morner that the record had been interfered with to show sea level rising, because the raw data from the satellites showed no increase in global sea level at all!
                           The raw data from the TOPEX/POSEIDON sea-level satellites, which operated from 1993-2000, showed a slight uptrend in sea level.  However, after exclusion of the distorting effects of the great El Nino Southern Oscillation of 1997/1998, a naturally-occurring event,the sea level trend is zero!
           The GRACE gravitational -anomaly satellites are able to measure ocean mass, from which sea level change can be directly calculated.  The GRACE data show that sea level fell slightly from 2002-2007.
These two distinct satellite systems,using very different measurement methods, produced raw data reaching identical conclusions: sea level is barely rising,if at all.   Sea level is not rising at all in the Maldives, the Laccadives, Tuvalu, India, Bangladesh, French Guyana, Venice, Cuxhaven, Korser, Saint Paul Island, Qatar.
In theMaldives a group of Australian environmental scientists uprooted a 50 year old tree by the shoreline, aiming to conceal the fact that its location indicated that sea leve l had not been rising.   this is further indication of political tampering with scientific evidence about sea level. Since sea level is not rising the chief ground of concern at the potential effects of antropogenic global warming, that millions of shore dwellers the world over may be displaced as the oceans expand is baseless.    As Professor Morner says we are facing a very grave unethical "sea-level gate".

IEA press release shows rising world coal consumption with falling global temperature!

                             The International Energy Agency has issued a press release on global coal consumption showing that while world coal consumption has risen over the last decade, the linear global temperature has dropped at a rate of 0.7c/century!    Alarmists had claimed that the rising world coal consumption was causing global warming.   Nothing could be further from the truth as the above graphic shows.  (see

US National Academy of Sciences find Greenhouse Effect does not exist!

         An overlooked science report from the United States National Academy of Sciences(NAS) has revealed that the Greenhouse Effect does not exist!    The NAS document "Carbon dioxide and Climate: A Scientific Assessment" commissioned by the US government and first published in 1979 never even mentions the greenhouse gas effect in its 13, 000 words.  Scientists at PSI assert that this is the most compelling physical evidence ever found proving the GHE as nothing more than a modern(post- 1979) political construct.   American scientists knew as far back as 1979 that there was no greenhouse gas effect for CO2 to impact!   Remember that the cream of US climate science in the 1970`s had no political axe to grind   This undoubtedly challenges the modern man made global warming scam. We can now say that no serious mainstream climate scientist then gave the GHE the time of day. (see PSI web site  See also

IPCC authors now admit that the sun plays a far greater role in climate than previously thought.

                     A UN leak from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) now has admitted that the sun plays a far greater role than previously thought. .Many UN researchers are now on record as stating that changes in the sun, rather than human carbon dioxide emissions have altered the earth`s temperatures.  The source of the leak Alec Rawls participated in the review of the Second Order Draft of AR5(the next IPCC report).  He said that it is important for the document to be immediately released because of the public`s right to know.  This has been reported on the WUWT blog and Rawls says that he felt compelled to break his confidentially agreement as an IPCC reviewer because of "the systematic dishonesty of the report."     He says it has been corrupted by bad faith and fraud.  He concluded " the IPCC admission of strong evidence for enhanced solar forcing changes everything.   the climate alarmists cannot continue to claim that warming was almost entirely due to human activity over a period when solar warming effects, now acknowledged to be important, were at a maximum"
               Alarmist IPCC authors have been using regression analysis techniques in what appears a cynical statistical trick to remove the impacts of natural ocean current systems such as El Nino and La Nina and volcanic aerosols from the instrument temperature record.  Critics say this is just another way that junk scientists can make it appear that human emissions are the more dominant.  However the leaked documents clearly show that a substantial number of IPCC scientists now recognize what many of us have been saying all along that there is a  underlying long term solar trend which recent scientific studies show was most evident in the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods.    Principia-Scientific International (PSI) a new world wide body of climate scientists and engineers who assert that solar impacts are dominant and that human impacts are trivial have expressed delight at these latest revelations.   This is a timely boost for PSI scientists who have recently  published papers pointing to solar not human impacts on climate.  Among these are PSI scientists Canadian astrophytsicist Joseph E Postma and Australian Douglas Cotton.  (

Institutional bias in the Institute of Physics London

                      A new publication just out reveals the shocking bias in the Institute of Physics in London where the alarmist lobby have been very active.  This new publication "Institutional Bias" is written by Andrew Montford and is available on the Bishop Hill blog at and features Peter Gill and Terri Jackson in their battle for truth in the Institute of Physics.       It is well worth a read.

BBC`s dirty little secret lands it is a new climate scandal!

                    Christopher Booker reports in the Sunday Telegraph of 22 November regarding the  latest scandal to hit the BBC, this time regarding the BBC decision to defy its charter obligation to report on the global warming subject impartially.   Booker reports on the secret day long seminar held at Television Centre on 26 January 2006.  It was attended by all the BBC top brass including George Entwistle the short lived director general including some other executives who have recently had to step aside because of the Saville affair, such as Helen Boaden, then director  of news.  In 2008 the BBC Trust published a report claiming that this unprecedented decision to flout its charter of impartiality was taken after a "high level seminar with some of the best scientific experts" on climate change.  Now the names of those who attended the seminar have been finally revealed on the internet thanks to another blogger Maurizio Morabito(see and theWayback Machine which stores information deleted from the internet.   Only three of the "28 specialists"  invited to advise the BBC were active scientists, none of them climate experts and all committed global warming alarmists.(note: the latest scientific evidence shows that there has been no global warming for at least 15 years. Any warming previous to this has been natural.).  Virtually all the rest on the list were professional climate change lobbyists, ranging from emissaries of Greenpeace and the Stop Climate Chaos campaign.
               Booker goes on to relate that in his report "The BBC and Climate Change: a Triple Betrayal"(on the global warming policy foundation website) the consequences of what this roomful of "climate activists" advocated as BBC policy were devastating.    There followed a stream of unashamedly propagandist documentaries ,led off with two fronted by Sir David Attenborough which featured a string of ludicrous scare stories.   Booker goes on to report on the small outfit set up to lobby the media on global warming, funded by the Department for Environment, the WWF and the University of East Anglia(home of the climategate e-mails scandal).

Dr James Hansen NASA-GISS leading climate scientist reported to New York Police

                      P Gosselin who owns the "NoTricksZone" blog has reported NASA Goddard Institute of Space Science(GISS) scientist Dr James Hansen to the New York Police.  Gosselin states " I am officially reporting to the NYC police, NASA-GISS scientist James Hansen, for manipulating and falsifying US Government temperature data, with the likely intent to defraud US citizens".  New Yorker Gosselin is urging other city residents to act on their "public duty" and partake in a mass grassroots protest to compel police to probe alleged shenanigans at NASA GISS, Columbia University where Hansen works as head of climate research for the US government agency.  Citing as evidence obtained by other climate scientists such as Dr Steven Goddard and others Gosselin insists Hansen has falsified climate data to deceive tax payers and policymakers  "not just once but on multiple occasions". With so many independent analysists over so many years having found irregularities in the strange "science" of Dr Hansen there may be sufficient evidence to at least warrant a police probe.   Gosselin gives the police address on his web site as  NYPD, 26th Precinct, 520 west 126th Street, New York, NY 10027, Tel.

Leading American meteorologist rejects Sandy/climate link.

    Leading American meteorologist Tim Kelley of WLNE  TV in Providence Rhone Island says "Sandy is not an unprecedented storm.  The 1938 hurricane was worse, and was followed by major hurricanes in 1944 and 1954.  Three hurricanes in 16 years.  we are fortunate to have gone nearly 60 years without a comparable storm here in the northeast.   The alarm and fear of antropogenic global warming is a major distraction and a waste of resources that could otherwise go to helping humanity.  We should be adapting to climate change  not trying to change climate.  Increasing evidence from around the world shows that the main driver of terrestrial climate is the sun.   The data shows no correlation at all between antropogenic CO2 emissions and climate change."

Principia Scientific International Publishes Ground breaking Paper refuting the Greenhouse Gas Theory

                          The new scientific paper by the PSI`s Joseph E Postma is the most coherent and complete analysis any of the 120 plus members of Principia Scientific International (including a Nobel Science prize nominee) has seen on the greenhouse gas theory.   This paper completely refutes the claims by some "luke warmists" that the so called greenhouse effect must cause "some" warming.   Principia Scientific International is pioneering a new kind of peer review in open media(PROM).  As such PSI welcomes full and open public examination of Postma`s work.  PSI are adamant that they have compellingly debunked what a generation of government climatologists incorrectly assumed ie  that the flow of radiation in the Earth atmosphere is indicative of the flow of heat.   PSI scientists confirm that the issue was never really about whether radiation moves freely about in the atmosphere (it does), the big question should have been whether once it has arrived at the surface: does it get more than one go at generating heat(ie" back radiation" heating)?    Postma and his PSI colleagues say "no" because no such phenomenon as "back radiation heating" is cited in any thermodynamics textbooks nor has any such effect been measured empirically.   Also all "back radiation" graphics have been removed from Nasa publications.

Peter Lilley MP accuses BBC of systematic bias in its handling of climate change evidence

                     Lord Lawson the chairman of the global warming policy foundation (GWPF) has written to Lord Patten, the chairman of the BBC Trust, to personally investigate a complaint by Peter Lilley MP regarding the BBC`s systematic bias in its approach to climate change. In his letter to the BBC Lilley writes "the BBC cannot credibly suppress the views of those who think the IPCC(Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change) too alarmist while promoting those who think it too cautious" .  Lord Lawson is calling on the BBC Trust to address the wider problem " namely the case for the BBC to migrate from its present one sided reportage and propaganda on climate change and climate change policies to a more balanced and objective coverage of this complex and important range of issues"

Michael Mann Retracts False Nobel Prize Claims in Humiliating Climbdown

                          Penn State University (PSU) climatologist, Michael Mann, has conceded defeat in his claims to be a Nobel Peace Prize winner.  His employer Penn State University has begun the shameful task of divesting itself of all inflated claims on university websites and official documentation that Mann was ever a Peace Prize recipient with Al Gore and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  Even Wikipedia is hurriedly re-writing their biography of  Mann, the leading alarmist climatologist in the US, within 24 hours of Tom Richard of obtaining confirmation from the Nobel committee that Mann had lied in his sworn affidavit filed last week in the District of Columbia Court.  The whole climate ball game has now been changed.   The alarmist movement is on the run.

Report from John O`Sullivan(PSI): Michael Mann in Perjury Sensation: Nobel Committee Affirm he lied!

                                 John O`Sullivan CEO of Principia-Scientific reports that the Norwegian Nobel Institute has today made a statement affirming that climate scientist, Michael Mann lied when he claimed he was a joint winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.  Tom Richard investigating for takes the credit for this sensational scoop.  Richard records that he got a reply from Professor Geir Lundestad of the Norwegian Nobel Institute that said "Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize".

three Presidential debates pass without a single mention of climate change! Why?

                           As Marc Morano of Climate says this is the first time this has happened since global warming hit the national stage in 1988. Global warming activists are outraged.  It was only in April this year that Obama declared to Rolling Stone that he would make global warming a key campaign issue in 2012.  Obama has let down part of his political base by going silent on this issue.    As Morano says the answer is clear.  The man made global warming fear movement never overcame having a partisan figure like Al Gore being its public face and suffered from having the scandal ridden and distrusted UN IPCC as the source of its science.  Other factors are the global economic slow down and the climategate scandal of the released e-mails from the University of East Anglia. This had massive consequences on public opinion and the collapse of the UN climate treaty talks.   In addition the continued disintegration of the warmists climate claims by real world data showing the world is not warming but cooling and there has been no global warming for at least sixteen years in spite of a rise in carbon emissions.

NASA ------cyclonic winds and ocean currents responsible for Arctic ice changes

                 While Arctic sea ice shrinks Antarctic ice expands!   In fact about 2400 Manhattens added overnight!   Nasa now admits that it was mainly cyclonic winds(not global warming) that pushed ice south into warmer waters.   The warming and cooling of both poles goes in cycles.   In a recent study Nasa has said that Antarctic temperatures have been much balmier in the past.(see also report by Cornwall Alliance    The Arctic sea ice shrinkage came in September which is late.  As the Cornwall Alliance notes this suggests ice in July/August was very thin, not requiring much sun to melt it.  Generally ice does not thin from the top indicating that ocean currents may have been the cause,not warm air, as the cause of the thinning and shrinkage.                          
                 The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation transfers heat from hemisphere to hemisphere, cooling one pole and warming the other. (see report by D Hoffman on GWPF site).   The CA also draws attention to the PDO(Pacific Decadel Oscillation), a 30 year ocean current cycle warming and cooling the oceans.  The CA Senior Fellow Dr Roy Spencer University of Alabama Huntsville and lead scientist on the NASA Aqua satellite remote sensing programme believes that the PDO accounts for most of the 20th century global warming.  Also the Arctic has been ice free before,such as in the 1920s with no ill affects.

Alabama State Climatologist Dr John Christy demolishes warmists` claims in testimony to US Congress

                     The Alabama State Climatologist Dr John Christy of the University of Alabama in Huntsville in testimony before the House Energy and Power Subcommittee of the US Congress on 20 September 2012, has demolished the claims of the warmist alarmists.  He said that extreme events like the recent US drought will continue to occur ,with or without human causation.  He said that the recent claims about thousands of new record high temperatures were based on stations whose length of record could begin as recently as 1981, thus missing the many heat waves of the 20th century.  So, any moderately hot day now will be publicized as setting records for these young stations because they were not operating in the 1930s.
                  He said that the occurrence of the records by decade makes it obvious that the 1930s were the most extreme decade and that since 1960, there have been more all time cold records set than hot records in each decade.  The clear evidence is that extreme high temperatures are not increasing in frequency.   About 75 percent of the states recorded their hottest temperature prior to 1955!

Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax

                              This is the title of a new book by Larry Bell Professor of Space Architecture at the University of Houston Texas.   Melting glaciers,suffering polar bears, rising oceans.  These are just a few of the climate change crisis myths debunked by Professor Larry Bell in this explosive new book.  Why and how are some of the world`s most prestigious scientific institutions cashing in on the debate?  Who stands to benefit most by promoting public climate change alarmism?  What true political and financial purposes are served by the vilification of carbon dioxide?   How do climate deceptions promote grossly exaggerated claims for non fossil alternative energy capacities and advance blatant global wealth redistribution goals? Climate of Corruption will bring welcome relief to all those who are fed up with climate crisis insanity.

Slaying the Sky Dragon--Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory

                      Even before publication, Slaying the Sky Dragon-- Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory was destined to be the benchmark for future generations of climate researchers.  This is the world`s first and only full volume refutation of the greenhouse gas theory of man made global warming.  Lord Monckton was reported  as saying it was "the talk of the UN  2010 Cancun Climate Conference"
                       Eight leading international experts methodically expose how willful fakery and outright incompetence were hidden within the politicized realm of government climatology.   Step by step the reader is shown why the so called greenhouse effect cannot possibly exist in nature.  By deft statistical analysis the cornerstones of climate equations--incorrectly calculated by an incredible factor of three--are exposed, then shattered.    This volume is a must read and the game changer for international environmental policymakers as well as being a joy to read for hard pressed taxpayers everywhere.  Put together by outstanding world scientists including Dr Timothy Ball former Professor of Climatology at the University of Winnipeg, Dr Martin Hertzberg formerly US Naval meteorologist and holder of a Fulbright Professorship, founder of the testing laboratory at the US Bureau of Mines, Professor Claes Johnson Professor of Applied Mathematics ,School of Computer Science and Communications, Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm  and others.

Obama`s Drought of Facts

Contrary to Obama`s linking temperature rise to droughts Dr Patrick Michaels former Arizona state meteorologist in a measure of the Palmer drought severity index (first figure) which is worked out on a weekly basis, shows it to be clearly increasing.  This means that the opposite is happening.  The US is getting wetter!  (report from article Patrick Michaels National Review on line 12 September 2012)
 The second figure from CRU shows that the global temperature has started to decline.  This is in line with Dr Abdussamatov Russian Director of the International Space Station, predictions that the earth is moving into a Little Ice Age phase.  Dr Phil Jones of has recently noted that there has been no temperature rise for 16 years.

New paper indicates that soot from Chinese coal use is the cause of the Arctic melt

The two images above shows the R squared value, the goodness of fit,for China coal use  is almost twice that for global temperature.   The Ed Caryl paper (see shows clearly that the Arctic ice melt  is being accelerated by the presence of soot and dust from Asia mainly China.  Coal figures are from Wikipedia and use also of the NSIDC NH ice index. China is using three billion tons of coal each year and it is this coal use that is affecting the Arctic melt. Greenland is not thawing neither is Siberia.  The cold is on the land but the warmth is on the seas.  The seas are warm and not the atmosphere.  The soot accumulates on all of the ice enhancing the melt.

Paper in Science Journal finds Arctic sea ice extent 8000 years ago was less than half of the `record` low of 2007!

        Scientific paper in Science Journal has revealed that summer Arctic sea ice extent during the holocene Thermal Maximum 8000 years ago was less than half of the `record low 2007 level`.  The paper found a general build up of sea ice from about 6000 years before the present which reached a maximum during the Little Ice Age(which ended around 1850) and attained its present extent at 4000 years before the present.   (Science 5 August 2011  Vol 333 No 6043  PP 747-750.  Reported in hockeyschtick.blogspot      Also the NSIDC product ,the new and improved multisensor MASIE shows no record low at 4.7 million Km2!

Ice core shows Antarctic Peninsula warming is nothing unusual

       This report posted in Energy 23 August 2012 reveals that a new ice core from the Antarctic Peninsula shows that temperatures in the region during the past 10 000 years have often been higher than they are today, and that warming of the sort seen there recently has also occurred in the pre-industrial past.  The new data is derived from a massive 364 metre long core extracted from the ice sheet lying on the top of James Ross island towards the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula in the freezing Weddell Sea.  The core was extracted by scientists from the British Antarctic Survey, assisted by a French team.   As a result of this it has been possible to reconstruct local temperatures and snowfall way back to the end of the last ice age.   The Ross Island ice core results have made it into Nature magazine.
         The results show that while the high rate of warming over the past century is unusual it is not unprecedented in the context of natural climate variability over the past two millennia..  Natural millennial scale climate variability has resulted in warming on the eastern Antarctic Peninsula that has been ongoing for a number of centuries and has left ice shelves in this area vulnerable to collapse.    The Nature article reveals that there is evidence for instability of the Larsen A ice shelf between 3800 and 1400 years ago.  Ice shelves along the shores of the Waddell Sea have snapped off in the pre-industrial past and may well snap off in coming years.   The idea that they must result from man made carbon emissions does not seem credible.

Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan opposses man made climate change theory

                      Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has chosen as his Vice Presidential running mate Representative Paul Ryan from Wisconsin.  Ryan is totally opposed to the discredited man made climate change theory.  He has accused climate scientists of "intentionally misleading the public on climate change"( P Gosselin  11 August 2012) In 2009 writing in on 9 December he said
                 " the CRU(climate research unit at the University of East Anglia) e-mail scandal reveals a perversion of the scientific method, where data was manipulated to support a predetermined conclusion.   The e-mail scandal has not only forced the resignation of a number of discredited scientists, but it also marks a major step back on the need to preserve the integrity of the scientific community.  While interests on both sides of the issue will debate the relevance of the manipulated or otherwise omitted data, these revelations undermine confidence in the scientific data driving the climate change debate"                  
                  Professor Fred Singer Professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and Director of the Science and Environment Policy Project.  He is the founding director of the US Weather Satellite service.
Referring to the climate situation he refers to RepresentativeRyan as the polar opposite of former VP Candidate Al Gore.  He says that climate scientific back up for Ryan can be supplied.   In particular he notes that while there has been an increase in temperature over the past 250 years as the earth recovers from the Little Ice Age, the warming reported from surface stations since about 1980 is not matched by observations of atmospheric temperatures, ocean temperatures, or so called proxies(temperatures derived from tree rings, lake sediments, stalagmites, corals, ice cores etc.    There is evidence for fluctuations produced by atmosphere-ocean oscillations and accumulating evidence for the subtle influences of the sun on the climate.

an inconvenient result for Hansen! 1936 almost two degrees hotter than 2012!

                          Anthony Watts (WUWT blog) reports that July 2012 has NOT been a record breaker according to data from the new NOAA/NCDC US Climate Reference network.     Watts reports that the difference between the old problematic network and the new USCRN is 2.1 F cooler!.   This puts July 2012 according to the best official climate monitoring network in the USA at 1.9F below the 77.4F July 1936 average temperature in the NOAA press release, not a record by any measure!.   There is no correlation between 2012 summer temperatures in Washington and world temperatures which are much cooler and far below that predicted by Hansen.   Watts notes that the old land based temperatures measuring network was a mishmash  of urban, semi urban, rural, airport and non airport sitings some of which were sited in parking lots, near air conditioners vents and on airport tarmac which would inevitably mean higher than average temperatures.

New Hansen climate paper ridiculed by top scientists

                        The new climate paper just released by Dr James Hansen the well known alarmist from the Goddard Institute of Space Studies ,which supports AGW as the cause of recent climate changes,  has been ridiculed as seriously scientifically flawed and in complete contrast to the actual measured temperatures. Anthony Watts author of  the world`s top science blog (WUWT) has noted that the southern hemisphere data is missing.   The period chosen by Hansen 1955-1999 leaves out the warmer 1930`s and the cooler 2000`s.  Why?  The period from 2000 to the present has no statistically significant warming. Leaving that period out biases the presentation.   As for severe weather Hansen ignores the fact that neither tornadoes nor hurricanes have shown any increase recently..  NOAA`s SPC reported that July 2012 was a record low for tornadoes!
                       Dr Martin Hoerling NOAA(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Chief meteorologist and lead author of the US Climate Change Science Plan Assessment Report, said that the Russian heat wave was natural.  He says "Dr Hansen`s new paper confuses drought, which is caused primarily by a lack of rainfall, with heat waves."   In an interview in the New York Times Hoerling rips apart the new Hansen paper.  He says about the Hansen paper "this is not a serious science paper.  It is mainly about perception, as indicated by the paper title.  Perception is not science!"  New York Times 6 August 2012.    Again Hoerling interviewed by Wynne Parry for LiveScience and reported on Fox News says " the weather pattern responsible would have happened regardless of human induced climate change"   Fox News 7 August 2012.

New Surface Temperature analysis for North America shows a doubling due to NOAA station siting problems and post measurement adjustments.

                     A new paper just released on 29 July  titled  " An area and distance weighted analysis of the impacts of station exposure on the US Historical Climatology Network temperatures and temperature trends" is co-authored by Anthony Watts of California, Evan Jones of New York, Stephen McIntyre of Toronto, Canada and Dr John R Christy former lead author of the IPCC and now from Department of Atmospheric Science, University of Alabama Huntsville.   It is a reanalysis of US surface station temperatures and has been performed using the recently WMO(World Meteorlogical Organisation) approved Siting Classifaction System devised by METEO.   The new analysis demonstrates that reported 1979-2008 US temperature trends are spuriously doubled,with a massive 92 percent of that over-estimation resulting from erroneous NOAA(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration US) adjustments of well sited stations upward.  The issue of station siting quality is expected to be an issue with respect to the monitoring of land surface temperature throughout the Global Historical Climate Network.  The Watts team of 2012 has employed a new methodology for station siting, pioneered by Michel Leroy of METEO France in 2010 and endorsed by the World Meteorological Organisation Commission for Instruments and Methods of Observation(CIMO-XV, 2010) fifteenth session , in September 2010 as a WMO-ISO standard ,making it suitable for reevaluating previous studies on the issue of station siting.  The Watts team found that well sited rural stations show a warming nearly three times greater after NOAA adjustment is applied!!  They found that poorly sited station trends are adjusted sharply upward, well sited stations are adjusted upward to match the already adjusted poor stations.  (see the Watts blog

Dr Patrick Moore cofounder of Greenpeace says humans have reversed the 150 million year decline of CO2 in earth atmosphere

    Dr Patrick Moore has criticised a new study reported in the New Zealand Herald on 11 July which said that global warming has been slowed by an increase in CO2 absorption by plants.     The new study headed by Dr Sara Mikaloff-Fletcher from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research claimed that  because of this unexpected absorption the earth would have warmed faster.  However Dr Moore commented to ClimateDepot.  " these people are either completely naive about the relationship between CO2 and plants or they are making this up as a way of deflecting attention from the lack of warming for the past 15 years"   He goes on to say " plants grow much faster when CO2 is higher, the optimum concentration is between 1500-2000 ppm so there is a long way to go before plants are happy.   CO2 levels in the atmosphere have continued to rise despite plants absorbing more CO2.  So what is the scientist`s point?   It is to obfuscate, confuse, and otherwise muddy the waters with disinformation."   He continued "we should challenge them to admit that CO2 is the most important nutrient for all life on earth and to admit that it is proven in laboratory and field experiments that plants would grow much faster if CO2 is the most important nutrient for all life on earth and to admit that it is proven in lab and fields experiments that plants would grow much faster if CO2 levels were 4-5 times higher in the atmosphere than they are today.  Greenhouse growers pipe the exhaust from their gas and wood heaters back into the greenhouse to increase CO2 levels 3-5 times the level in the atmosphere, resulting in 50-100% increase in growth of their crops.   And they should recognize that CO2 is lower today than it has been through most of the history of life on earth.  There is no abrupt increase in CO2 absorption, it is gradual as CO2 levels rise and plants become less stressed by low CO2 levels.  At 150 ppm CO2 all plants would die, resulting in the virtual end of life on earth".   Referring to humans he said" thank goodness we came along and reversed the 150 million year trend of reduced CO2 levels in the global atmosphere."

Nobel prize winner ---physicist Ivar Giaever--says climate change is pseudoscience!

    Joanne Nova reports on a recent meeting on climate change in which physicist Ivar Giaever was one of the speakers.   Ivar Giaever won the Nobel prize in 1972 for tunneling in superconductors.  In his speech he said that the results were too small to mean anything and called climate change science "pseudoscience".   He derided the Nobel committee for awarding the peace prize to Al Gore and R.K. Pachsuri, and called the human climate change  movement as a "religion"..  He found the measurement of the global average temperature rise of 0.8 degrees over 150 years to be meaningless and unlikely to be accurate because of the difficulties of measurement.   He showed several charts that showed the earth had cooled overall.   He disagreed that carbon dioxide was the driver of climate change.  (note: it is now recognised widely in the scientific community that the drivers of climate change are not humans but the sun and ocean cycles).

Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering new report supports fracking in the UK.

                A new report from the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering says that fracking to release shale gas should go ahead in the UK subject to tight regulations and continuous monitoring of drilling sites. The report says that despite evidence that fracking can trigger small earthquakes, the tremors felt would be about the same as those caused by a lorry driving past a house.   It said that the chances of any contaminated water escaping into supplies were very low.  Professor Robert Mair chair of the panel said " the risks associated with fracking can be managed effectively in the UK provided operational best practises and enforced through effective regulation"  In the US the Energy Information Administration in their latest monthly energy review said that the shale gas revolution in the US has meant that it is expected that carbon emissions will soon be back down to 1990 levels.  In addition US consumers will have saved $100 billion per year!   The low priced shale gas is the key driver of falling carbon emissions.  Gas and electricity prices in the US are now half what they are in the UK.

An inconvenient truth. Himalayan glaciers actually gaining ice!

     A new survey of data gleaned from space has shown a vast region of Himalayan glaciers is actually gaining ice steadily. The study compared two sets of space data, the first gathered by instruments aboard the space shuttle Endeavour in 2000 and the second by the French SPOTS5 satellite in 2008. Across the targeted region of the Karakorum mountains lying on the Chinese border with India and Pakistan, the glaciers were found to have gained substantial amounts of mass by the time the second survey was carried out.   The study was led by Dr Julie Gardelle of Grenoble university and published in Nature Geoscience. The new discoveries are in sharp contrast to the general narrative until recently that had assumed that the Asian glaciers were melting rapidly.   As recently as 2007 the IPCC(Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) formally predicted that all Himalayan glaciers would be gone by 2035.  This was found later to be based on a bogus study issued by the hard green group WWF.  (report in Energy 16 April 2012()

BBC discriminates against London independent weather action scientist Piers Corbyn

             Piers Corbynof London,( the most successful independent weather prediction expert in the world is being discriminated  against by the biased BBC.  Piers appears on almost every television channel in the world, Russian, American except the BBC!   We must ask why has the BBC deleted his recent post on Paul Hudson`s site?      The deliberate black listing of Piers Corbyn on BBC television must be lifted.   The Met office application for £43 million for a new super computer should be refused and instead one percent of that be spent in outsourcing long range forecasts beyond the Met office.

antarctic ice shelves not melting at all. New study by Norwegian Polar Institute

The twenty year old computer models which have been used to suggest serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality and found to be false..  The new study by the Norwegian Polar Institute was published in Geophysical Research Letters and in Science on 25 June 2012.  The team`s results show that water temperatures are far lower than computer models predicted.   Tore Hattermann of the NPI announced two years worth of direct measurements below the massive Fimbul Ice Shelf in eastern Antarctic.
Hattermann and his colleagues using 12 tons of hot water drilling equipment, bored three holes more than 200m deep through the Fimbul Shelf, which spans an area roughly twice the size of New Jersey.  They also used information from the MEOP project(Mammal Exploration of the Oceans Pole to Pole) which had sensor packages attached to seals.

thousands of women march in Rio at the UN Conference to protest against the "green economy"

         Canadian News Yahoo( that on Monday last thousands of women  representing social and farming movements in Brazil marched in central Rio at the UN environment conference to protest against the green economy.  Their banners said  " No to green capitalism!  Yes to people`s sovereignty.  this is a march against this Rio charade!"  All right thinking people will support these women in their attempt to expose what Professor Richard S J Tol, Professor of the Economics of Climate Change and lead author of the IPCC  has described as " the rotten heart" of the green IPCC, a movement that is leading to thousands of African Ugandans being driven from their lands in the name of carbon credits, Honduran farmers murdered,poverty worldwide and especially in under developed countries when politicians like President Obama deny African countries the right to build power plants to bring them out of poverty.  The green movement is anti science and anti God.  All right thinking people will expose this wicked evil movement.

Professor James Lovelock former green leader attacks the green movement.

   Professor James Lovelock former Nasa scientist and for many years the effective leader of the green movement, now attacks that same movement.  He has now admitted that he was wrong in his previous alarmist predictions.  He now says that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion!   He says sustainable development, the buzz word so beloved by the politicians and the journalist "experts" who write for the broadsheets the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, the Times,  is "meaningless drivel"!!  Going on he says that "we rushed into renewable energy without any thought.  The schemes(mostly wind power) are largely hopelessly inefficient and unpleasant".   Professor Lovelock has a picture of a wind turbine on the wall of his study to remind him how as he says "ugly and useless they are".   As for sea level rises he says "I am not worried about sea level rises"    (taken from press reports in the Daily Mail,  the global warming policy foundation)

Doctored Data, not US Temperatures set a record this year.

    This is the heading of an article by James Taylor Senior fellow at the Heartland Institute Chicago on the 13 June edition of the online   He notes that raw temperature data shows that the US temperatures were significantly warmer during the 1930s than today.  In fact raw temperature data shows a 80 year cooling trend in the US.(see above diagram).  Clearly NOAA(National Oceanic and Atmpspheric Administration) has been "doctoring" the raw temperatures.   Taylor goes on to say that doctoring real world temperature data is part of the alarmist strategy---one of acute deception to mislead the unwary!.  The alarmists who oversee the collection and reporting of the data simply erase the actual readings and substitute their own desired readings!   Older temperature readings are repeatedly made cooler to give the false impression today that the earth is warming. more recent temperature records from large cities and near airports should actually be adjusted downwards.  this should be to take account of the industrial growth in these areas over time and is a well known effect. So just as the UK Hadley Climate Centre has been adjusting temperatures downwards  in the crutem 4 data set(see older post in this blog) for temperatures before 1995, so NOAA in the US is also  doing the same alarmist trick of doctoring the temperatures to give the impression of a present world warming trend which in reality does not exist.  The Giss(Nasa Goddard Institute of Space Studies) image for the Iceland capital Rekavek showed a warming trend in January 2012, yet a few weeks earlier Giss had shown the same image of the same Iceland city as a cooling trend!

Heartland Institute 7th International climate conference a great success.

      The Heartland Institute`s 7th International Conference on Climate Change took place in Chicago Illinois from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 May .2012.  It was an unqualified success. Videos of all presentations are available at  the web site   Approximately 50 speakers from around the world addressed around 300 audience members eager to learn about the causes and consequences of climate change. Speakers included Vaclav Klaus President of the Czech Republic, Jim Sensenbrenner US Congress member for Wisconsin and chair of the Congress Science committee,  Harrison Schmidt geologist and the last Apollo astronaut  to walk on the moon, Lord Monckton former science adviser to Mrs Thatcher, Professor Bob Carter Research Professor at James Cook University Queensland, Stanley Goldenberg research meteorologist with the hurricane division of NOAA(National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), Larry Bell Professor of space architecture at the University of Houston, Paul Driessen Senior policy Adviser at CFACT (Committee for a constructive to-morrow), Dr Craig Idso and Professor Fred Singer co-authors of the massive report of the non governmental panel on climate change.
         The conference was co-hosted by a record60 think tanks and other groups including organisations in Australia, Brazil, Britain, Canada, Germany, India, New Zealand and Nigeria. A number of climate alarmists who support the IPCC were invited to come to the conference to speak but none agreed to attend. Left wind protesters outside the conference numbered no more than 50.              
       Topics covered included the latest research on solar cycles and cosmic rays to paeoclimatology, extreme weather events, renewable fuels, the reliability of land based temperature records( not very reliable given that the UK Hadley climate centre are involved in altering the land temperature records from many stations in the Crutem 4 report---- see blog Terri Jackson). What satellite records show for temperature measurements and their better reliability, what physics and biology tell us about sensitivity of climate to CO2 forcing, reliability of IPCC forecasts, cooling trends 1998 to 2012.  Natural versus man made influences on climate, adaptation versus mitigation for climate policies, the sociology of global warming alarmism.
     Jim Sensenbrenner in his speech made it clear that the EU illegal taxes on non EU citizens flying into and out of EU airspace was a blatant violation of international law.  He said that the UN policies really involved a proposed massive transfer of wealth from developed world countries to underdeveloped countries.  He said that as far as the US was concerned cap and tax and Koyoto were dead for good.  Those who supported the Waxman-Markey cap and tax bill in the Congress were all annihilated in the US congress elections in 2010. The conference ended on a high note with the realisation that in the ongoing scientific debate the public is now strongly on their side against alarmism and the coming elections in the US will show a reversal of the anti-energy and anti-science policies of the recent past.

PNAS Study shows powerful correlation between sun and climate over the last 9000 years.

    A paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in the US by Dr S Luning and Professor Fritz Vahrenholt notes that the comparison of solar activity(blue curve) and the Asian climate development (green curve, isotope O18 of a stalagmite in a Chinese cave) for the past 9000years clearly shows a good agreement between the two curves, which strongly suggests a significant climate impact by the sun.  Also the IPCC has ignored that G Bond was able to show more than 10 years ago that the last 10 000 years have been characterized by a global temperature that runs up and down in sync with solar activity(Bond et al 2001). reference P Gosselin   www.notrickszone .com  German climate science in English

Deliberate alteration of Hadley Centre land temperatures Crutem 4 to give the impression of warming!

           In a post on the WUWT(Watts Up With That) blog  Dr Ed Thurstan reveals the deliberate changes being made to past temperature data  which gives the impression of modern warming.   In March 2012 the Hadley Climate Research Unit released the land temperature data set Crutem 4.   This deliberate alteration to the Crutem 4 data set is skewing temperatures to appear colder in the past and warmer in the recent years than previously reported.      Unwarranted changes will of course help those in the climate alarmist movement  whose intentions are to deceive the public that the earth is warming, when in fact the opposite is the case, the earth is cooling with no global warming for 15 years.  Crutem 3 and 4 are widely used as an authoritative global temperature history.   The WUWT blog edited by Dr Anthony Watts has done climate honesty a great service in exposing this latest alarmist strategy.
               About 286 temperature stations in the Crutem 3 data set are dropped from Crutem 4, while 738 stations are added to Crutem 4.   The adjustments have been made with reference only to the earlier Crutem 3 data rather than the raw temperature data. For example for Adelaide the temperatures recorded in Crutem 4  for the 30 years from 1857 have been lowered each month!   After this there are no adjustments until the year 2000 when a smattering of adjustments appear, mostly raising the temperature!  The total effect of all the differences between Crutem 4 and Crutem 3 where there is corresponding data is to accentuate the warming  trend by lowering pre 1995 temperatures by 0.1 to0.2 celsius and raising post 1995 temperatures by a similar amount.
As a result Crutem 4 is seriously flawed and should be immediately withdrawn.   Between 70 and 400 stations have been warmed up by up to 0.2 celsius since about 1995.   The temperatures differences, where there are corresponding data in each of the data sets works to promote the impression of a temperature surge in the 1990`s.   Crutem 4 and Hadcrut 4 are seriously flawed.   More information on data and processing programs used are available from the author at

Leading environmentalist Professor James Lovelock says he was alarmist about climate change and so was Gore!

    In an interview with with  Professor James Lovelock the originator of the "Gaia" theory of the earth says he was alarmist about climate change and so was Gore!  He says "the problem is we don`t know what the climate is doing.  We thought we knew 20 years ago. Twelve years(from 2000) is a reasonable time, the temperature has stayed almost constant whereas it should have been rising---carbon dioxide is rising no question about that".    He went on to say he did not mind saying "I made a mistake".  He claimed a university or government scientist might fear an admission of a mistake would lead to the loss of funding.   He pointed to Al Gore`s "An inconvenient truth" ( in reality an untruth!) and Tim Flannery`s " the weather makers" as other examples of alarmist forecasts of the future.

Shale Gas Expansion

   A report from the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change(DECC) says that hydraulic fracking to reach gas trapped in shale rocks could safely resume in the UK. With the development of shale gas the world will never be the same again.  The potential is massive..  Thanks to new found deposits of shale gas the US overtook Russia in 2010 as the world`s largest gas producer.  Already the price of natural gas has fallen to only $2 as of April 2012, the lowest price in a decade.  Could ground water be contaminated by this process as some would fear?    Durham University in the UK together with Cardiff University and the University of Tromso in Norway have produced a report which said "the liklihood of contamination of drinking water in aquifers due to fractures when there is a separation of more than a kilometre is negligible because there is no path for fracking water to reach ground water".   Richard Davies Director of Durham`s Energy Institute said "geological conditions are optimal at 2-3km depth".   Davies says that as long as the depth is in excess of 0.6km there is little risk. In Poland drilling has been 3-4 km below the water table..  In the Lancashire fracking site in the UK the major shale gas resources has led to fracking being more than 1800 metres below the water asquifers.  The small tremors that were felt in this area recently were no greater than tremors often felt with coal mining and are insignificant.  Also the case reported in the US of a gas tap being lit was nothing to do with fracking but due to the gas passing through coal deposits near the surface.

US Businessman Donald Trump attacks wind farms and man made climate change in appearance at Scottish parliament in Edinburght

              In a dramatic appearance before a committee of the Scottish Parliament in the past week US businessman Donald Trump said that wind farms will destroy tourism.   He is in opposition to a wind farm development off the Aberdeen coast where he is soon to open a new golf course.  He said that climate change is not mad made and and renewable targets are "phoney".  He has got the ire of the political fanatics and their media allies who support the climate hoax.    Regarding off shore wind farms a judge in the US recently upheld objectors to such a development on the grounds it could be a hazard to aircraft flying by sight, in addition to submarines and other ships.              
                As well as the hazards to aircraft and shipping caused by off shore wind farms the climate zealots supporting the hoax are also keen to push for carbon dioxide storage in off shore undersea caverns. Rev Philip Foster in the UK has also outlined what he calls the bone headed stupidity  of burying carbon dioxide( a gas essential for life!) promoted by the BBC.  Foster says

         " carbon dioxide is a colourless, odourless, non poisonous and relatively dense gas.  It is quite different from carbon monoxide  which is highly toxic.  Why bury essential food?  It is like burning wheat in front of starving people.  All plants are currently existing on starvation rations of CO2, as levels are the lowest they have been for 300 million years.   Pumping CO2 into old oil and gas wells out at sea is utter madness.  Although it is a relatively heavy gas it will leak out-explosively!    The result will be catastrophic for shipping anywhere in the area.  Ships lose boyancy in water filled with gas bubbles and sink like stones. This activity also contravenes international laws about dumping waste at sea.   Since the eco-fascists believe that CO2 is a pollutant they are hoist on their own petard"   Well said Rev Foster.                                                

Reminder:  an excellent recent book is "The Greatest Hoax" by US Senator James Inhofe published by WND Books Washington DC  with endorsements by Honorable Vaclav Klaus President of the Czech Republic, Joe Bast President of the Heartland Institute,  Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT and Dr Harrison Schmitt  former US Senator, geologist and Apollo 17 astronaught.  An outstanding exposure of the climate hoax.

Piers Corbyn London`s leading climate astrophysicist dismembers latest Nature and BBC"CO2 drives climate" claim as Dishonest, Delusional and Dangerous. ure and BBC

                 Piers Corbyn reports that the warmist climate deniers have been desperately trying for a decade to "hide the rise" in observed ocean and Antarctic temperatures which precedes the rise in world CO2 levels at the end of ice ages.(see  He says that the Antarctic temperatures are a measure of the temperature of the surrounding largest water mass in the world--the southern ocean and the south halves of the Pacific , Indian and Atlantic Oceans.  When this warms CO2 is slowly released with a delay of about 800 years..  General southern and equatorial ocean and land warming continues and the Arctic (Greenland) warms up rapidly later.  By lumping the north and south hemispheres the authors of the Nature paper (Shakun et al) conceal the physical sequence of events using a trick to "hide the rise" of the southern ocean.  Their silly wrong assumption is that the whole of the Antarctic and Southern oceans warm up in response to increases in CO2 which has yet to take place 800 years in the future!. There is much less sea in the northern hemisphere to emit or absorb CO2.  The Arctic(Greenland) and Antarctic O18 time series are exactly in phase during cooling but when warming it is only the Arctic (Greenland) which has abrupt warming. (see paper by Steig and Alley).   Shakun et al is total make believe science! (regarding warming at present the earth is cooling with no global warming for fifteen years,  even Dr Jones of the UEA has admitted as much!).  The Arctic warms up after the Antarctic!
    (see Phase relationships between Antarctic and Greenland climate records by E J Steig and RB Alley Annals of glaciology 35  2002).  This shows that the Antarctic warms first releasing CO2 slowly from the oceans followed by the Arctic(Greenland))

China slows solar, wind expansion, instead goes for nuclear and shale gas ----New report

                        A report in the Daily Caller of 14 April 2012 gives details of an announcement by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao that the china economy would stop expanding its wind and solar industries, choosing instead to focus on nuclear, hydroelectric and shale fracking as the energies of the future.  Currently the Chinese government has 14 nuclear power plants, with 25 more under construction.  China has also plans to build more dams to facilitate further development of hydroelectric power.

Fifty former top NASA scientists engineers and astronauts attack NASA policy on climate

    Fifty former top NASA scientists, engineers and astronauts have attacked the present NASA climate policy in a strongly worded letter to the NASA administrator in Washington:
       "we believe the claims by NASA and GISS (Goddard Institute for Space Studies) that man made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated, especially when considering thousands of years of empirical data.  With hundreds of well-known climate scientists and tens of thousands of other scientists publicily declaring their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, coming particularly from the GISS leadership, it is clear that the science is NOT settled. As former NASA employees,we feel that NASA`s advocacy of an extreme position , prior to a thorough study of the possible overwhelming impact of natural climate drivers is inappropriate.   We request that NASA refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases and websites on this subject.  At risk is damage to the exemplary reputation of NASA, NASA`s current or former scientists and employees, and the reputation of science itself.

          ( the letter was signed by among others, the former Director of the Johnson Space Center  Gerald C Griffin, the former Deputy Director of the Space Shuttle Programme  Leroy Day, the former Apollo flight director Dr C Kraft,  former Apollo astronauts Charles Duke (Apollo 16), Dr Harrison Schmitt(Apollo 17), Al Worden (Apollo 15), Walter Cunningham (Apollo 17)).

Russian Professor of Natural Sciences says continued global warming is a myth!

         Geologist Professor Nikolai Dobretsov President of the Natural Sciences Divisionof the Russian Academy of Sciences says that the cycles of waxing and waning of ice in the Arctic shows that continued global warming is a myth and the current climate cycles will follow a period of global cooling to the end of this century.  He has noted that recent  studies have observed alternating cycles of growth and decline in Arctic ice mass. He said that "the ice minimum was recorded in 2007. Between 2008 and 2011 and it seems in 2012 the ice has grown back.  The winters in the Arctic are getting colder.  Continued global warming is a myth".  He stressed that in order to clarify the situation it is necessary to develop a complex network of observing stations in the Arctic region.  (reports in Voice of Russia  26 March 2012 and see also Milenio 7 April 2012)

The Coming New Little Ice Age

The changing Sun has enabled Dr H Abdussamatov Russian Director of the International Space Station and head of space research at the Polkovo Observatory in St Petersburg to predict a cooling Earth using the two century solar cycle which governs the solar physics of the Sun.  In his latest paper he has predicted that based on the decrease of the bicentennial luminosity on the basis of the observed accelerating drop in both the 11 year solar cycle and the bicentennial component of the total solar irradiance(TSI), which is not being compensated by a decrease in the emission to space of the Earth thermal energy there will be the start in 2014 of the next cycle of deep cooling leading to a Little Ice Age by 2055(+/-11years).   This will last well into the 22nd century.  British university scientists support this position.

Germany`s leading daily Bild (6 February2012):"The CO2 lies-pure fear mongering by politics"

In both its print and online editions on 6 February Germany`s leading daily Bild attacks CO2 lies!  Professor Fritz Vahrenholt a green activist was asked to review a IPCC report on renewable energy.  He found hundreds of errors!  When he pointed these out IPCC officials brushed them aside.  Also Germany`s flagship weekly news magazine Der Spiegel also featured a four page exclusive interview with Vahrenholt where he repeated that the IPCC has ignored a large part of climate science and exaggerated the impact of CO2 on climate. Vahrenholt together with Dr Sebastian Luning has just published "Die Kalte Sonne" citing 800 sources with over 80 charts and revealing that it is the sun that plays a major role in climate science.  The book has reached no one on the Amazon books site for environment books.

Former Secretary of President Reagans Office of Economic Opportunity Geologist Leighton Stewart rubbishes alarmist climate change movement.

                    The former secretary of President Reagans Office of Economic Opportunity geologist Leighton Stewart rubbishes the alarmist climate change movement.  In the WorldNetDaily (9 December 2011) his analysis entitled "THE CLIMATE CHANGE CON ARTISTS"  asks the following searching questions:

  1. Why can`t warming alarmists produce a single legitimate example of empirical evidence to support the man made global warming hypothesis?                                                              
  2. Why has the earth been warming for 300 years when man has only emitted measurable amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere for the last 150 years?                                                                                        
  3. Why did the earth cool for 500 years before the recent 300 year warming and warm for several hundred years before that when even the IPCC says CO2 levels did not change?                                        
  4. Why was the Medieval Warm Period, a thousand years ago, warmer than today even though the CO2 level was 38 percent lower than today?                                                                                     
  5. Why did many of the earth`s major glaciers in the Alps, Asia, New Zealand and Patagonia begin to retreat nearly half a century before the Industrial Revolution and man`s CO2 emissions?                                   
  6. Of the last five interglacials, going back 400 000 years, why is our current interglacial the coolest of the five even though the earth`s CO2 level is about 35 percent higher?                                              
  7. Why has our current 10 000 year long Holocene epoch been warmer than today for 50 percent of the time when CO2 levels were about 35 percent lower than today?                                            
  8. Why are correlations of the earth`s temperature with natural factors such as sunspot numbers,solar cycle lengths, solar magnetic variations and changes in major ocean currents all better than the correlation of earth`s temperature with CO2 levels?

Glaciers are growing worldwide. the Ice Age cometh!

     Climatologists have established that over the 4.5 billion years of the earth`s existence, ice ages have had interglacial periods that averaged about 11 500 years.   Then the earth lapses into a period of intense cold.  The earth today is 11 500 years since the end of the last major ice age so we are due another ice age and all the signs are there that it is coming fast.  A major sign is increasing evidence of growing glaciers. Argentina`s Perito Moreno is growing and it is in the southern hemisphere. Glaciers are growing in India, in the Rockies, in California and in Washington State. Last year in the US record snowpack had been reported in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Oregon.   On California`s Mammoth Mountain the snowpack measured an incredible 728 percent above normal..  In June last year the Utah Snowbird ski resort reported snowpack at 525 percent above normal.  In Montana`s Glacier National park, in Colorado`s front Range, in Wyoming`s Grand Tetons, the glaciers and snowfields are all gaining in volume. So much for the global warming propaganda!  Pay attention BBC!

         for a comprehensive commentary of the state of play of glaciers worldwide refer to the site by Dr Robert W Felix the world`s leading authority on ice ages and

The Ice Age Cometh!

         On 11 January Canberra in Australia had its lowest temperature in recorded history.   Canberra airport recorded 1.6 celsius the lowest January temperature ever recorded!

         In Austria in the town of Ischgl in the Alps ten feet of snow has fallen in two days! Many have been stranded in St Anton, Arlberg and about a week ago thousands were stranded in Zermatt.  The Austrian weather centre ZAMG said some places had not seen snow so deep in 30 years. South Germany, France and Switzerland have also experienced heavy snow.
