Greenland Ice near record!

Reading the twaddle about Greenland by climate "scientists" you would have no idea that Greenland snow and ice is at near record levels this year and arctic temperatures are below normal . Climate "scientists" are a disgrace to the profession!
No Tricks Zone has the  story:



Arctic Temperatures have been below normal for the last and Arctic sea ice is close to normal.

Peer Reviewed Penisology

We have been battered for years with the words "peer review" where climate "scientists" get some of their mates to vouch for a rubbish paper which is then foisted on the public as "climate science".
Taking the mickey, a bogus paper was written using all the post-modern jargon with a little bit of sex thrown in and the paper was peer reviewed and published in a "reputable" journal. There are red faces all round. The abstract is below.

How do scary Climate Models compare with reality

It is unbelievable that people would still believe the Warmist nonsense.
The graph says it all. Visually challenged Frederick could see that the models are junk science.

Obama lies about Global food production.

The Global warming scam is built on lies and deception and and Obama, the Liar-in-Chief for the last decade cannot help himself when addressing the faithful.
"Our changing climate is already making it more difficult to produce food... We’ve already seen shrinking yields and rising food prices."
Fortunately for the world this is completely wrong and crop yields are at record levels as a quick look at UN statistics shows.

Aussie Summer has been hot but..

This map shows that 2017 has been hot but not unusual . It should be noted that this graph does not include data from the 1896 heat wave when temperatures topped 50 degrees. This is because it was removed from the BOM record because the data was "unreliable" not because as some cynics would think that it made a nonsense of global warming's "unprecedented warming". It should be noted that over 200 people died in the 1896 heat wave attesting to it's severity.

H/T to Realclimate for this graph of Australian days which  exceeded 38Degrees C


Arctic Ice Scam - the bits they don't show you.

From Real Climate. Steve Goddard has appended historical data to the satellite record which is the bit alarmists use to hysterically claim global warming is melting the Arctic. Unbelievable that so-called scientists can ignore real data.

Arctic Ice scam revealed


Official US Government research graphs that show that Arctic ice was about the same in 1945 and 1960 as the present level ,giving the lie to climate scammers claims about unprecedented melting. The Orwellian manipulation of climate data is about to end when the climate swamp is drained in the US.
Current climate graphs ignore earlier data to give the impression of continual ice loss. Note the graph below starts around 1980.

European Courts are nitwits also.

Climate change worries halt Vienna airport's third runway
A court in Austria has blocked construction of a third runway in Vienna on the basis of increased CO2 emissions. The idiocy of such a decision is breathtaking. Will this reduce the number of people coming? No! Will the number of planes be reduced ? No! Will travelers be inconvenienced? Yes!
These legal morons are denying the reality of modern air travel .
The Local in Austria has the story:
A court has blocked Vienna airport's plans for a third runway saying it would have resulted in greater greenhouse gas emissions, in a verdict described by lawyers as a first.
Austria's Federal Administrative Court said in a ruling published late on Thursday that the "positive aspects of the project cannot justify the high extra carbon dioxide pollution."
A third runway would result in a "significant" rise in greenhouse gas output, contravening the country's domestic and international undertakings to reduce emissions, a statement said.
"The airport's possibilities to reduce CO2 emissions through its own measures (such as the installation of solar panels and changing its vehicles to electric cars) were insufficient," it added.
"As far as I know this is unique that climate protection is used as an argument to block a concrete plan," Christian Schmelz, a lawyer for the airport, told the newspaper Die Presse.
Erika Wagner, head of the Environmental Law Institute at Linz University, called it a "landmark ruling".

Major scandal at NOAA uncovered by whistleblower

Image result for climate fraud
Climate skeptics have always known that the temperature data held by NOAA was completely dodgy with temperatures in the past being lowered to create an artificial warming graph. We now have a whistle-blower pulling the plug on the shenanigans of the climate "scientists"at NOAA - the major repository of "climate data" in the world. I think this will be the first of many as the climate scam crumbles.  The Daily Mail broke the story:

Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data 

  • The Mail on Sunday can reveal a landmark paper exaggerated global warming
  • It was rushed through and timed to influence the Paris agreement on climate change
  • America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration broke its own rules
  • The report claimed the pause in global warming never existed, but it was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data

 
The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by politicians and policy makers.
But the whistleblower, Dr John Bates, a top NOAA scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown The Mail on Sunday irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.
It was never subjected to NOAA’s rigorous internal evaluation process – which Dr Bates devised.
His vehement objections to the publication of the faulty data were overridden by his NOAA superiors in what he describes as a ‘blatant attempt to intensify the impact’ of what became known as the Pausebuster paper.
His disclosures are likely to stiffen President Trump’s determination to enact his pledges to reverse his predecessor’s ‘green’ policies, and to withdraw from the Paris deal – so triggering an intense political row.

A judge who hasn't drunk the Green Koolaid shocks Greenies!


Environmentalists, expecting a free pass after tampering with a pipeline were shocked when when a judge said that catastrophic global warming was "controversial". With Trump in charge expect more of the same bringing the climate bed-wetters out in force!
The National Post has the story:
A jury was selected in Washington state on Monday in the first trial over a coordinated protest that disrupted the flow of millions of barrels of crude oil into the United States, a proceeding activists hope will serve as a referendum on climate change.
Activist Ken Ward says he will not dispute that he shut down a valve on the Kinder Morgan Inc’s Trans Mountain Pipeline near Burlington, Washington, but he will testify that such actions are necessary in the face of the government’s failure to address global warming.
Judge Michael Rickert has barred Ward’s lawyers from formally mounting a “necessity” defence or arguing that his actions were justified in light of a looming environmental crisis.
“I don’t know what everybody’s beliefs are on [climate change], but I know that there’s tremendous controversy over the fact whether it even exists,” Rickert said. “And even if people believe that it does or it doesn’t, the extent of what we’re doing to ourselves and our climate and our planet, there’s great controversy over that.”

Whoops! Majority of Scientists do not support Global Warming Scam

Image result for global warming cartoon
The 97% of scientists supposedly supporting the scam has dropped alarmingly in a new survey where a majority believe warming is mostly natural. As Trump removes the muzzles from skeptics you can expect only the hardline cadre of true believers to remain.
Forbes has the story:
It is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.
Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.
The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists (summarized here and here) revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.
According to the newly published survey of geoscientists and engineers, merely 36 percent of respondents fit the “Comply with Kyoto” model. The scientists in this group “express the strong belief that climate change is happening, that it is not a normal cycle of nature, and humans are the main or central cause.”


The authors of the survey report, however, note that the overwhelming majority of scientists fall within four other models, each of which is skeptical of alarmist global warming claims.
The survey finds that 24 percent of the scientist respondents fit the “Nature Is Overwhelming” model. "In their diagnostic framing, they believe that changes to the climate are natural, normal cycles of the Earth.” Moreover, “they strongly disagree that climate change poses any significant public risk and see no impact on their personal lives.”
Another group of scientists fit the “Fatalists” model. These scientists, comprising 17 percent of the respondents, “diagnose climate change as both human- and naturally caused. ‘Fatalists’ consider climate change to be a smaller public risk with little impact on their personal life. They are skeptical that the scientific debate is settled regarding the IPCC modeling.” These scientists are likely to ask, “How can anyone take action if research is biased?”
The next largest group of scientists, comprising 10 percent of respondents, fit the “Economic Responsibility” model. These scientists “diagnose climate change as being natural or human caused. More than any other group, they underscore that the ‘real’ cause of climate change is unknown as nature is forever changing and uncontrollable. Similar to the ‘nature is overwhelming’ adherents, they disagree that climate change poses any significant public risk and see no impact on their personal life. They are also less likely to believe that the scientific debate is settled and that the IPCC modeling is accurate. In their prognostic framing, they point to the harm the Kyoto Protocol and all regulation will do to the economy.”
The final group of scientists, comprising 5 percent of the respondents, fit the “Regulation Activists” model. These scientists “diagnose climate change as being both human- and naturally caused, posing a moderate public risk, with only slight impact on their personal life.” Moreover, “They are also skeptical with regard to the scientific debate being settled and are the most indecisive whether IPCC modeling is accurate.”
Taken together, these four skeptical groups numerically blow away the 36 percent of scientists who believe global warming is human caused and a serious concern.
One interesting aspect of this new survey is the unmistakably alarmist bent of the survey takers. They frequently use terms such as “denier” to describe scientists who are skeptical of an asserted global warming crisis, and they refer to skeptical scientists as “speaking against climate science” rather than “speaking against asserted climate projections.” Accordingly, alarmists will have a hard time arguing the survey is biased or somehow connected to the ‘vast right-wing climate denial machine.’
Another interesting aspect of this new survey is that it reports on the beliefs of scientists themselves rather than bureaucrats who often publish alarmist statements without polling their member scientists. We now have meteorologists, geoscientists and engineers all reporting that they are skeptics of an asserted global warming crisis, yet the bureaucrats of these organizations frequently suck up to the media and suck up to government grant providers by trying to tell us the opposite of what their scientist members actually believe.
People who look behind the self-serving statements by global warming alarmists about an alleged “consensus” have always known that no such alarmist consensus exists among scientists. Now that we have access to hard surveys of scientists themselves, it is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.

120 Billion euros for 5% Electricity Supply in Germany


German wind farm
Ugly Wind Towers blight a picturesque German Village.

Swiss business is concerned about the green energy plans for Switzerland given the disastrous results in Germany ,where wholesale installations of wind and solar at enormous cost and degradation of the beautiful countryside ,are really providing little reliable power.
  NoTricksZone has the story:
The Swiss online Baseler Zeitung here writes how the country’s Association for Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Biotech Companies is coming out against Switzerland’s recently proposed green “energy strategy”, saying that it is “fundamentally going in the wrong direction“.

The association fears it will lead to higher costs.

Energy politician Christian Wasserfallen “is pleased” about the message, the Baseler Zeitung writes.

The economy is slowly realizing what a threat the energy strategy poses.”

On the problems of supply reliability from sun and wind power, the Baseler Zeitung reports:

Just how little wind and sun really deliver was actually measured for example by Germany yesterday: The more than 120 billion euros worth of solar panels and wind turbines installed since 2000 delivered 4% and 1% respectively of German power demand.”
