Spotty coverage: Climate models underestimate cooling effect of clouds

Princeton University researchers have found that the climate models scientists use to project future conditions on our planet underestimate the cooling effect that clouds have on a daily—and even hourly—basis, particularly over land.

The researchers report in the journal Nature Communications Dec. 22 that models tend to factor in too much of the sun’s daily heat, which results in warmer, drier conditions than what might actually occur.

Is the IPCC a scientific organization or a political one?

SPOTLIGHT: We’re told that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific organization that makes scientific determinations. But that isn’t true.

BIG PICTURE: The process by which climate change was declared a problem is a process only bureaucrats could love.

In his brilliant book, Belgian writer Drieu Godefridi explains why the ‘IPCC = science’ claim is false.

It is a creation of governments. Its reports are creations of governments. To repudiate its findings, he says, would be to repudiate themselves.

Fact Check: China’s Modern Climate Change Evidence

China is the fourth largest country in terms of geographical size and the largest in population size.

Accordingly, human-induced climate change from greenhouse trace gases would be of major concern to China’s leaders.

So, what does a fact check reveal of China’s modern climate change due to human CO2 emissions?

Frankly, little, if any, emission impact on present climate change based on new Chinese peer-reviewed research.

The hole in Earth’s ozone layer is healing, first-of-its-kind study shows

Efforts to heal the hole in Earth’s ozone layer over Antarctica appear to be paying off, according to a new, first-of-its-kind study that looked directly at ozone-destroying chemicals in the atmosphere.

Earth’s ozone layer protects the planet’s surface from some of the sun’s more harmful rays that can cause cancer and cataracts in humans, and damage plant life, according to NASA.

Climatologists’ Projections Refuted…Data Shows Tornadoes Becoming LESS FREQUENT!

Tornadoes have become less frequent since 2010: Pacific ocean cycles control storm frequency

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt
(German text translated/edited by P Gosselin)

We haven’t heard much about tornadoes lately. For a while, they were the favorites among climate activists. When did the love affair end? Here we cast a look at the official NOAA tornado statistics:

Obama’s DHS Secretary: Climate Change Is A ‘Security Issue’

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson claimed Tuesday on MSNBC that climate change “is a security issue.”

The Morning Joe team claimed it’s “clear over the next four years at least, we’re going to do nothing about climate change, we’re going to potentially take some serious steps back, what would you say, assuming that a new president comes in 2021 — what would you say the United States do immediately to address the threat?”

Manufacturing consensus: The early history of the IPCC

Short summary: Scientists sought political relevance and allowed policymakers to put a big thumb on the scale of the scientific assessment of the attribution of climate change.

Bernie Lewin has written an important new book:

SEARCHING FOR THE CATASTROPHE SIGNAL: The Origins of The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The importance of this book is reflected in its acknowledgments, in context of assistance and contributions from early leaders and participants in the IPCC:

Alarmists Find New Excuse: Sea Levels Aren’t Rising Because ‘Ocean Bottom Deformation’

Scientists in the Netherlands have found a new excuse as to why sea levels are stubbornly refusing to rise in line with Al Gore’s doomsday predictions: “ocean bottom deformation.”

Apparently, they claim in a study by Thomas Frederikse et al, the weight of the extra water caused by all those melting glaciers and ice caps is so great that it is causing the seabed to sink.

BBC’s Reindeer Games: Admits Making Serious Factual Error About Reindeer Populations

The BBC has accepted Lord Lawson’s complaint that they made a serious factual error in claiming that reindeers were in “steep decline” because of climate change.

The alarming claim that reindeer populations across Northern Russia were “in steep decline because of climate change”, was made during the first episode of the recent BBC 2 series: Russia with Simon Reeve.

New Study: Strong El Ninos Can Have Big Impacts On Antarctic Ice Shelves

Strong El Nino events can cause significant ice loss in some Antarctic ice shelves. Front of the Getz Ice Shelf. NASA

A new study published Jan. 8 in the journal Nature Geoscience reveals that strong El Nino events can cause significant ice loss in some Antarctic ice shelves while the opposite may occur during strong La Nina events.

El Niño and La Niña are two distinct phases of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), a naturally occurring phenomenon characterized by how water temperatures in the tropical Pacific periodically oscillate between warmer than average during El Niños and cooler during La Niñas.

FORECAST: Expect ‘January Thaw’ To Be Blamed On Global Warming

Veteran meteorologist Roy Spencer has a prediction about the upcoming “thaw” in temperatures along the U.S. East Coast — it’ll be spun to hype man-made global warming.

Forecasts show temperatures along the U.S. eastern seaboard warming up later in the week, with temperatures reaching the high 50s. Nashville is expected to hit 63 degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday, forecasters predict.
