Matt Ridley & Benny Peiser zum Pariser Klimagipfel im Wall Street Journal: At the Paris conference, expect an agreement that is sufficiently vague and noncommittal for all countries to claim victory.
Increasingly warmer temperatures throughout the world may produce a trend toward dictatorial governments in the opinion of Dr Clarence A Mills, professor of experimental medicine at the University of Cincinnati. In fact, Dr Mills believes that the rise to power of Adolf Hitler in Germany and Benito Mussolini in Italy may be due in part to the gradual warming temperature of the world. People are more docile and easily led in warm weather than in cold, Dr Mills insists.—The Mason City Globe-Gazette, 27 March 1941
Reality check: Greenland Blowing Away All Records For Ice Gain
Greenland is blowing away all records for ice gain this year. They have gained almost 200 billion tons of snow and ice over the past two months, which is more than 50% above normal.
Poland’s president has vetoed an amendment to the Kyoto protocol on CO2 emissions that extends the deadline for compliance because he believes the country needs more time to analyze its impact on the economy, his office said on Tuesday.
The Kyoto protocol, signed in 1997, imposed on all signatory countries an obligation to cut their carbon dioxide emissions by at least 5 percent in the period 2008-2012 versus 1990. The 2012 Doha amendment extended the deadline by 2020.
Poland has already met its targets for 2008-12 under Kyoto.
President Andrzej Duda’s office said Poland, which is reliant on heavily polluting coal, needs more time to analyze the possible impact of the Doha amendment on its economy.
His move comes two days after the victory of the conservative, eurosceptic Law and Justice party (PiS) in Poland’s parliamentary...[Weiterlesen…]
2015 Annual GWPF Lecture - Institute of Mechanical Engineers, London 14 October
My Lords and Ladies, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Thank you for the opportunity to set out my views on climate change. As I have stated publicly on many occasions, there is no definitive scientific proof, through real-world observation, that carbon dioxide is responsible for any of the slight warming of the global climate that has occurred during the past 300 years, since the peak of the Little Ice Age. If there were such a proof through testing and replication it would have been written down for all to see.[Weiterlesen…]
London 12 October: In an important new report published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation, former IPCC delegate Dr Indur Goklany calls for a reassessment of carbon dioxide, which he says has many benefits for the natural world and for humankind.
Dr Goklany said: “Carbon dioxide fertilises plants, and emissions from fossil fuels have already had a hugely beneficial effect on crops, increasing yields by at least 10-15%. This has not only been good for humankind but for the natural world too, because an acre of land that is not used for crops is an acre of land that is left for nature”.
Die ZEIT, November 2009: Die CO2-Speicher der Weltmeere sind voll: Bislang haben die Ozeane gut ein Viertel des vom Menschen verursachten Kohlendioxids aufgenommen. Doch jetzt verweigern die Meere langsam ihren Dienst.
Reality check: Southern Ocean ‘Sink’ Turns The Tide On Climate Alarm
The Southern Ocean has recovered its ability to suck vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, overturning fears the natural “sink” had stalled with dire consequences for future climate change.
Acting like a giant lung, the Southern Ocean carbon sink accounts for about 40 per cent of the ocean uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide.
Climate scientists had feared the uptake of carbon dioxide by the Southern Ocean had slowed in what was feared to be a “feedback” response to human activity.
New research published today in the...[Weiterlesen…]
Is there a connection between 2014 (the “world’s warmest year”), the even warmer 2015 and dying fish in the north Pacific? The thing that connects them is, as you may have guessed, warm water, or more specifically warm water where it should not be.
Something strange is happening to the north Pacific. It is setting sea temperature records, scrambling weather patterns, damaging ecosystems, and nudging up the global temperature. The scientists who have observed it call it after what it looks like on temperature maps of the Pacific – behold the “blob.” ...[Weiterlesen…]
