Quoting from the Website "sunshine hours":

July 25, 2014: Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 1,131,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean.

That obliterates the previous daily record by 500,000 sq km. And is also the 127th daily record for the year.

OBAMA CLEAN POWER PLAN A DISINGENUOUS "SLEIGHT OF HAND"

Tue, 06/03/2014 - 21:21

June 3, 2014: "Climate Policy Claptrap", ICSC Executive Director Tom Harris dissects Obama Administration "Clean Power Plan" (CPP) issued on June 2.

  • CPP will have negligible impact on climate, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy admits here.
  • CPP has no limits imposed on soot or the precursors to smog. Obama is relying on an EPA mistake known as 'co-benefits - see here for a description of this scam.
  • Costs will be enormous - see here.

CLIMATE CHANGE 'CONSENSUS' A DANGEROUS LIE

Tue, 05/27/2014 - 00:11

May 27, 2014: "The Myth of the Climate Change '97%' - What is the origin of the false belief—constantly repeated—that almost all scientists agree about global warming?", by Joe Bast, president of the Heartland Institute, and Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist for the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer on NASA's Aqua satellite, first published in The Wall Street Journal, New York City, U.S.A.

"Last week Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduating students at Boston College of the "crippling consequences" of climate change. "Ninety-seven percent of the world's scientists," he added, "tell us this is urgent."

"Where did Mr. Kerry get the 97% figure? Perhaps from his boss, President Obama, who tweeted on May 16 that "Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous." Or maybe from NASA, which posted (in more measured language) on its website:

"Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities."

"Yet the assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction. The so-called consensus comes from a handful of surveys and abstract-counting exercises that have been contradicted by more reliable research."

BOTTOM FALLING OUT OF THE SCIENTIFIC CASE FOR DANGEROUS HUMAN-CAUSED CLIMATE CHANGE

Mon, 05/19/2014 - 22:18

May 20, 2014: "Corbella: Pause in global warming upsets religious believers", by Licia Corbella, columnist and the editorial page editor, Calgary Herald, Calgary, Alberta. The presentation by Professor McKitrick was delivered at the Friends of Science 11th Annual Luncheon on May 13, 2014.

“This is the real issue,” says McKitrick. “At the point when the modelers could no longer peek at the answer, they started getting it wrong. Significantly wrong.”

Between 1990 and 2014, CO2 levels increased by 13 per cent. The climate models all agree on what should have happened, which is why the climate religionists at the CRU wanted to cook the books to “hide the decline.”

Fully 111 out of 114 models touted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted too much warming.

 

The models predicted warming of 0.21 C per decade — which is more than four times the actual observed level.

As Hans von Storch of the Institute of Coastal Sciences in Germany stated recently: “If things continue as they have been, in five years, at the latest, we will need to acknowledge that something is fundamentally wrong with our climate models. A 20-year pause in global warming does not occur in a single modelled scenario,” said von Storch, a renowned “consensus” climate scientist.

Indeed, last year, von Storch said: “We’re facing a puzzle. Recent CO2 emissions have actually risen even more steeply than we feared. As a result, according to most climate models, we should have seen temperatures rise by around 0.25 degrees Celsius over the past 10 years. That hasn’t happened. In fact, the increase over the last 15 years was just 0.06 degrees Celsius — a value very close to zero.”

THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR THE CLMATE MOVEMENT?

Fri, 05/02/2014 - 23:54

May 5, 2014: Kilez More - Klimawandel (Klimalüge, Klimaschwindel) + English subtitles, Austria.

When popular social crusaders like Austrian rap musician Kilez More 'diss' the climate scare, you know the movement is in trouble.

Description on YouTube page as translated directly from the original German:

"The "Climate Change" video from the "Status Quo" CD is about the global warming and its associated mass propaganda. It unmasks the current "consensus" as a monumental lie and sets out the machinations of the protagonists brutally frank in this bottle game.

"The unbiased, blind acceptance of these theses by the mass media (as it was then in the "forest death") is also denounced as the resulting vision "derselbigen".  A true scientific debate must follow, critics consulted and all, or just too controversial and contrary facts and studies are taken into account."

Watch Kilez More's description of what he regards as the real problems facing humanity, issues which are being starved of cash due to the billion dollars a day wasted on the climate scare.

Learn about Kilez More (if you speak German). 

ICSC comment: The most important thing this generation of environmentalists could do is kick the climate campaigners off the stage. When the climate scare collapses, as it surely will, environmentalism in general will be disgraced and the good causes they are fighting for will not be taken seriously by the public and the press. Then governments will turn back the environmental clock by decades.

RADIO INTERVIEW WITH ICSC SCIENCE ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER

Wed, 04/30/2014 - 23:29

April 29, 2014: "Infectious Myth – Changing the Climate with Madhav Khandekar", a radio interview on extreme weather and climate change on Progressive Radio Network.

"David steps out of the arena of medicine in episode 10 and talks to retired Environment Canada climate scientist Madhav Khandekar, who has about 45 years of experience in the field, about why he does not believe that CO2 is responsible for global warming. In fact, as he explains, he is not sure that the planet is currently warming, and that the trend of the last couple of decades may have turned around.

"Khandekar makes a good case that the climate is always changing, and that extreme weather events have always been with us, and will always be with us no matter what the source of factors that drive long term climate trends is. He points to success in Bangladesh in providing shelters from typhoons after a devastating storm in the 1970s that was estimated to kill several hundred thousand people. David identifies factors such as deforestation and poor urban planning as factors that turn a bad storm into a human disaster."

UN IPCC ALL WET ON CLIMATE CHANGE, SAYS NIPCC

Tue, 04/08/2014 - 22:58

April 9, 2014: "Comprehensive Report Documents Beneficial Impacts of Global Warming", by James Taylor, JD, Senior Fellow, The Heartland Institute; Managing Editor, Environment and Climate News, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

"The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change released a 1,063-page report documenting global warming’s beneficial impact on the biosphere. The report, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, provides a comprehensive analysis of the impact of global warming on plants, terrestrial animals, aquatic life, and human well-being.

"The new volume is the fifth produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. A sixth volume, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Human Welfare, Energy, and Policies, is scheduled for release in May.

"More than 30 scientists served as authors and reviewers for the new volume. The volume cites more than 1,000 peer-reviewed studies supporting the conclusion that global warming is not causing substantial harm to the biosphere. This directly counters alarmist assertions by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“Biological Impacts broadly tracks and critiques the work of IPCC’s Working Group II…. It appears IPCC is continuing its pattern of selectively reporting data to present an alarmist view of the impacts of climate change,” the report explains."

Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, once said:

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

“By ignoring observational evidence that does not support their politically-motivated conclusions, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) promotes unjustified fear about climate change. The latest report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, presents crucially important evidence that the IPCC ignored, information that will help the public, media and politicians to understand more, and so fear less, about the consequences of climate change.”
