25 New Papers Confirm A Remarkably Stable Modern Climate: Fewer Intense Storms, Hurricanes, Droughts, Floods, Fires… It has by now become common practice for just about any and every unusual weather occurrence, extreme temperature anomaly, or seismic event to be somehow, someway linked to the human practice of using energy derived from fossil fuels.
No hurricane, flood, drought, storm, wildfire … is spared from potential anthropogenic implication. Last week, a named hurricane (Hermine) that ultimately devolved into a tropical storm landed along the Florida coast — the first landfall in 11 years. 17 New (2017) Scientific Papers Affirm Today’s Warming Is Not Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable. By Kenneth Richard on 26.
January 2017 A collection of 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers published in 2016 were displayed here last month in an article entitled, “The Hockey Stick Collapses: 60 New (2016) Scientific Papers Affirm Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable“. Each paper from the 2016 collection cast doubt on claims of an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times. Could A New Global Temperature Reconstruction Using Ice Cores Be More Accurate Than The Instrumental Record? In the early 1950s, the accepted scientific truth — as determined by thermometer records available at the time — was that global mean temperatures had risen by 0.7°C between 1860 and 1940.
Willett, H. C. 1950. “Temperature Trends of the Past Century” Centenary Proc. New ‘Karl-buster’ paper confirms ‘the pause’, and climate models failure. The “uncertainty monster” strikes again We’ve been highly critical for some time of the paper in summer 2015 by Karl et al. that claimed “the pause” or hiatus went away once “properly adjusted” ocean surface temperature data was applied to the global surface temperature dataset.
Virtually everyone in the climate skeptic community considers Karl et al. little more than a sleight of hand. On the Integrity of the NASA/NOAA Temperature Record, Olympia Washington February 7 2017. Historical Grape Harvest Dates Show Modern Temperatures No Warmer Now Than Most Of The Last 1,000 Years.

The speed that climate change is happening is caused by humans. Instead of climate change happening on timescales of millions of years or 15,000 years, it’s happening on the timescale of decades, and now years. … Humans are causing it [climate change] to happen catastrophically fast. When pressed to identify the signature change affirming this rapid human-caused acceleration, Nye immediately cited viticulture evidence, or grape-growing practices in England and France.
“Britain would not be very well suited to growing grapes as it is today [if not for human activity]. Apparently Bill Nye believes it is quite unusual to grow grapes in England. Easterbrook, 2011. Glacial Retreat Before 1910. The Jakobshavn glacier in Greenland retreated more than one foot per day from 1850 to 1903, while thinning by a “considerable extent.”
It was also reported that alpine glaciers were in general retreat, and “conclusively that the glaciers of Greenland are receding” New Paper: Glacier Melt Rates Were Up To 3 Times Greater, Faster During Early 20th Century. By Kenneth Richard on 9.
February 2017 75% Of Total Modern Glacier Melt Occurred Before 1950. The Deplorable Climate Science Blog. According to Gavin Schmidt, 1922 was one of the coldest years on record.
The Arctic was melting down and ice never formed along coasts of Spitzbergen. This year, ice extent is very close to “normal” and ice is rapidly forming around Spitzbergen. nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/N_daily_extent.png. From #AGU14 Surprising findings in Greenland’s melt dynamics – glaciers retreated rapidly between 1900 and 1930. Virtually indistinguishable – Comparing early 20th Century warming to late 20th Century warming. Record Daily Temperature Fraud On The Rise. Besides the normal pack of lies from government agencies about temperature, one of the worst frauds is their claim that record daily temperatures are on the rise.
This is the exact opposite of what is happening. Using a stable set of stations, the number of daily maximum temperature records peaked in the 1930’s and have been generally declining ever since. The frequency of very hot summer days shows the same pattern. The average summer daily maximum temperature shows exactly the same pattern. Cache of historical Arctic sea ice maps discovered. Arctic Sea ice data collected by DMI 1893-1961 Guest post by Frank Lansner I came across a number of maps showing Arctic ice extend from 1893 to 1961 collected by DMI in “Nautisk Meteorologisk Aarbog”.
Each year DMI have collected information on sea ice extend so that normally each of the months April, May, June, July and August ice extend was published. New Paper: 14 Scientists Affirm Solar Forcing, Not CO2, Is ‘Dominant Control’ For Modern Climate Change. One of the oft-stated “truths” for advocates of the position that humans are predominantly responsible for climate changes is that the Sun could not have played more than a negligible role in the global warming of the last few centuries. Indeed, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) report theorizes that the long-term solar contribution to climate change has been slightly above zero. And yet today’s scientists have not been deterred in their quest to document a robust Sun-Climate link in the paleoclimate data… as well as in the temperature and climatic changes for recent decades. In 2016 alone, for example, there were over 130 scientific papers documenting a non-negligible solar influence on climate.
Climate scientist Dr. Jianyong Li, who has himself authored over 300 peer-reviewed scientific publications, continues this trend of linking climate changes to solar forcing. Li et al., 2017. 18 New Papers Link High Solar Activity To Medieval And Modern Warmth, Low Solar Activity To Little Ice Age Cooling. “It is generally accepted that the climate warms during periods of strong solar activity (e.g., the Medieval Warm Period) and cools during periods of low solar activity (e.g., the Little Ice Age).” —Lyu et al., 2016 Within the last 1,000 years, global-scale surface temperatures underwent a warm period during Medieval times, centennial-scale cooling during the 14th to 19th centuries, and another warm period since the early 20th century. According to scientists publishing in the peer-reviewed scientific literature within the last several months (2016), these long-term thermal changes are well correlated with long-term variations in solar activity, namely the Medieval Solar Maximum (Medieval Warm Period), Spörer, Maunder and Dalton Minimums (Little Ice Age), and Modern Grand Maximum (20th Century).
Unprecedented? Central England Warming Of 1692 – 1737 Twice As Fast As Late 20th Century Warming! The Warmunists are fond of stating that the warming in the late twentieth century was unusual and unprecedented, and could only have been caused by rising CO2. They refuse to recognize that the early twentieth century warming was just as rapid. Newly found weather records show 1930’s as being far worse than the present for extreme weather. Surprising news about trend of America’s temperature and precipitation.
1986 – The Year When Climate Fraud Reached A Tipping Point. On March 29, 1986 almost the entire country was over 70 degrees, with temperatures above 100 degrees in California. CO2 was below 350 PPM. Deja Vu all over again: climate worries of today also happened in the 20’s and 30’s. Two days ago I highlighted a news story from the Washington Post Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt dated from November 2nd 1922. Mainstream Media Ignores New Study: Present Sea Surface Temperatures “Indistinguishable” From Those During Last Interglacial… …When Sea Levels Were Roughly 20 to 30 Feet Higher than Today.
