Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom

If you read one book on climate change, let it be this one By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley There are many books on climate change, from both sides of the…

Claim: Acidification impedes shell development of plankton off the US West Coast

Along the coast, upwelling from deeper water layers brings cold, carbon dioxide-rich waters of relatively low pH to the surface. The research, by a team of Dutch and American scientists, found that the shells of pteropods collected in this upwelling region were 37 percent thinner than ones collected offshore.

BREAKING: Biden’s Calendar of Actions Leaked

People send me stuff. Today I got a PDF (purportedly from the Biden White House Team) titled “Biden early calendar of themed-days” I have a local copy saved which you…

Committed warming and the pattern effect

Zhou et al.’s estimate of committed warming (future warming with forcing remaining unchanged) follows fairly directly from their estimate of the pattern effect, if one accepts their bases and assumptions. In this article I therefore mainly deal with their estimate of the pattern effect.

Study: Global Warming will Impact Children’s Nutrition

According to a new study, global warming will reduce the nutritional quality of children's diets in poor countries. But the biggest predictor of nutritional quality was not climate, it was household wealth. Coal guzzling China was cited as being a children's nutrition success story.

Sea Ice Slows Ships In North China Ports

Chinese ports and marine safety authorities are on high alert as an expansion of sea ice makes it tougher for ships to berth and discharge at key energy product import terminals along the coast of northern Bohai Bay.

UCI researchers: Climate change will alter the position of the Earth’s tropical rain belt

Future climate change will cause a regionally uneven shifting of the tropical rain belt – a narrow band of heavy precipitation near the equator – according to researchers at the University of California, Irvine and other institutions. This development may threaten food security for billions of people.

Surprise! Chinese Coal Output has Risen to 2015 Levels, Undermining Climate Pledges

Who could have imagined the possibility Chinese President Xi Jinping's climate rhetoric does not exactly accord with what is happening on the ground?

The Rational Climate e-Book

By Andy May Patrice Poyet has just published a new 431-page eBook entitled, The Rational Climate e-Book, it is free to download here. Dr. Poyet studied geochemistry, remote sensing, and…

Claim: Carbon Capture Vital to Meeting Climate Goals

Carbon capture vs Renewable Energy? Proponents of contradictory green visions for Britain's future are fighting over British PM Boris Johnson's renewable energy policy largesse.

Exploring the Solar Wind With A New View of Small Sun Structures

Scientists have combined NASA data and cutting-edge image processing to gain new insight into the solar structures that create the Sun’s flow of high-speed solar wind, detailed in new research published today in The Astrophysical Journal. This first look at relatively small features, dubbed “plumelets,” could help scientists understand how and why disturbances form in the solar wind.

Germany Weighs Electricity Rationing Scheme To Stabilize Its Now Shaky Green Power Grid

The result of all the government meddling is becoming glaringly clear: the country now finds itself on the verge of blackouts due to grid instability, has the highest electricity prices in the world, relies more on imports and is not even close to meeting its emissions targets.

Sensible, sustainable nuclear power for Africa

Nuclear is most certainly a source of sustainable clean energy. At least seven African countries have signed agreements with Russian nuclear company Rosatom to develop nuclear capabilities. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are currently being developed, which are ideal for deployment in virtually any location. Large conventional nuclear can be 3000 megawatts (MW) in output, whereas an SMR is only about 100 MW.

Wandering Water

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I see in a most recent post here at WUWT that UC Irvine researchers have used “27 state-of-the-art climate models” to predict what will happen…

Greenland Ice Mass Loss Below Average In 2020

What is evident is that there has been no acceleration in melt since the start of records in 2002. This runs counter to the alarmist message commonly perpetuated, for instance the ever reliable BBC!

Weekly Climate and Energy News Roundup #439

"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.". – Richard Feynman in the Challenger Report.

Magnetic ‘Highway’ Channels Material Out of Cigar Galaxy

Located 12 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Ursa Major, the Cigar galaxy is undergoing an exceptionally high rate of star formation called a starburst. The star formation is so intense that it creates a “super wind” that blows material out of the galaxy. As SOFIA previously found using the instrumented called the High-Resolution Airborne Wideband Camera, or HAWC+, the wind drags the magnetic field near the galaxy’s core so that it’s perpendicular to the plane of the galaxy across 2,000 light-years.

Outdated carbon credits from old wind and solar farms are threatening climate change efforts

Mark Maslin, UCL and Simon Lewis, UCL French global energy giant Total recently announced it had delivered its first shipment of “carbon neutral liquid natural gas”. Natural gas is, of…

Proof Of Warmer Earlier Climate! Swiss Geologist Studies 10,800-Year Old Tree Trunk Under Alps Glacier

Previously hidden under a Swiss glacier, a 10,800-year old tree trunk was discovered and tells us the Alps were much warmer in the early Holocene than today.

Claim: Ocean acidification locks algal communities in a simplified state

In a study published on 11th January 2021 in Global Change Biology, researchers from the University of Tsukuba have revealed that as oceanic carbon dioxide levels rise, the biodiversity and ecological complexity of marine algal communities decline.
