New Study: Alpine Glaciers Were Smaller Than Today For 7,400 Of The Last 10,000 Years

Swiss Alps glacier extents were smaller than 2000 C.E. during  the warmer-than-today Roman and Medieval Warm Periods and throughout 75% of the Holocene, or when temperatures were 1-3°C warmer. Schimmelpfennig et al., 2022 “…the glacier was smaller than its 2000?CE extent for a total of ?7.4?kyr during the Holocene.” Image Source: Schimmelpfennig et al., 2022 Another […]

The IPCC CO2 Climate Narrative: A “Behemoth On Clay Feet” …Ready To Collapse

The earth’s history provides the solid proof that acquits CO2. The IPCC’s claim of CO2 being the dominant climate factor is a behemoth on clay feet.  By Fred F. Mueller Have you ever had an uneasy feeling when watching the aggressive, intolerant stance of the apologists of “man-made climate catastrophe” against all critics? The overwhelming […]

105 More Non-Global Warming/Non-Hockey Stick Temperature Records Added To The Database In 2021

Since 2019,there have been over 350 peer-reviewed scientific papers published showing no warming in the modern era and/or much warmer temperatures than today when CO2 levels ranged from 180 to 280 ppm (Holocene, Pleistocene). Below is the link to the updated (now including 2021) database of non-hockey temperature records from locations across the world. These […]

Even Evidence From Poems Suggests 1st Millennium China Had Decades 1-2°C Warmer Than Today

Humans have been recording flowering/bloom dates in China for over 1,000 years. These records affirm modern warmth in China is neither unprecedented nor unusual. Per temperature reconstructions gleaned from phenological records in poems, Central China had multiple 1-2°C warmer decades than 1961-1990 during the 1st millennium (Liu et al., 2021). Image Source: Liu et al., […]

17 More Studies Show No Unusual Warming Trend In Recent Centuries…And A Warmer Holocene

The evidence continues to accumulate affirming there is nothing unusual about modern temperature changes – including recent net cooling – throughout large regions of the globe. Cruz et al., 2021 (Argentina) Argentina’s (Tixi Cave) present annual temperature is 13.8°C. It was 3.5°C (17.3°C), 1.7°C (15.5°C), 3°C (16.8°C), and 4.5°C (18.3°C) warmer than today 3496, 1656, […]

GBR, Indian Ocean, South China Sea Corals Have Experienced No Obvious Modern Warming

New temperature reconstructions using coral skeletons as proxies reveal there has been no apparent net warming in the Great Barrier Reef, central Indian Ocean, and South China Sea since the 19th century – or even in recent decades. Coral skeletons can be used as proxies to reconstruct 1870s-present sea surface temperatures “throughout the Great Barrier […]

Antarctic Temperatures Were ‘Up To 5°C Above Modern’ From 12,000–2,000 Years BP

A new study indicates that from 4,000 years ago until as recently as 1,500 years ago, or when CO2 levels ranged between 255 and 270 ppm, lake levels in Antarctica were as high as 60 meters above today’s levels. This coincided with “warmer-than-modern paleoclimate throughout the Holocene.”  During the last 2,000 years, Antarctica’s temperatures have […]

Activists Get A Recent Paper That Threatens Climate Alarm Narratives Removed From Journal

Post-publication rejection of peer-reviewed scientific papers precisely because they are “are highly controversial due to their political and social implications” are another means climate activists continue their banishment of dissent on climate change. Back in 2009 the Climategate e-mails provided written documentation affirming suspicions climate scientists inclined to activism seek to “oust” those who they […]
