5 Nigerian Physicists Predict Global Cooling In The Next 80 Years: 2100 Will Be 0.5°C Colder Than 2018

Scientists: Due to the decline in solar geomagnetic activity the Earth is poised to endure a cooling period over the coming decades, with the coldest temperatures arriving by 2038 or 2039 ±11 years. Human greenhouse gas emissions are not likely the cause of recent temperature changes; geomagnetic activity is. Nor will greenhouse gases reverse the effects […]

New Research: “CO2 Influence On Global Temperature Development Since1860 Only Half As Large As IPCC Estimate!

A remarkable publication on solar influence on climate goes unnoticed By Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt (Die kalte Sonne) (Text translated/edited by P. Gosselin) On November 3, 2021, the renowned scientific journal Climate published a paper on solar influence on climate. The paper by the renowned solar researcher Dr. Frank Stefani from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is […]

2001-2019 Warming Driven By Increases In Absorbed Solar Radiation, Not Human Emissions

Three new studies affirm the increase in absorbed solar radiation associated with decreased reflection by clouds (albedo) has been the “root cause” of the positive Earth Energy Imbalance and global warming since the early 2000s. Scientists (Loeb et al., 2021) have determined the rather uncertain positive trend in Earth’s Energy Imbalance (EEI) from 2005 to […]

Cooling In The Pipeline? Low Solar Activity, Wild Fire Smoke, La Niña All Setting Up A Cooled 2022?

Here are 3 reasons why global surface temperatures will probably see continued cooling over the coming year. 1. La Nina back in the forecast NASA continues to project La Niña conditions into 2022 thus suggesting vigorous globally time-shifted cooling conditions: Source. NASA The NOAA-ENSO forecast also shows La Niña conditions taking hold again later this […]

Global Surface Cooling Expected To Continue…Forecasters See Another La Nina In The Pipeline

Not long ago Dr. Roy Spencer published Version 6 University of Alabama-Huntsville satellite-based global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for June, 2021. It was -0.01 deg. C, down an impressive  0.7°C since the peak in early 2016. As Dr. Spencer’s chart above shows, temperatures are back within the range seen 20 years ago. The […]

Strong Link Between Solar Activity And Rapid Cooling (2-3°C/Century) In China During The Last 5000 Years

China’s climate history includes multiple climate warming and cooling fluctuations of 4°C within centuries, with cold periods aligning with declines in solar irradiance. According to a new study (Zhang et al., 2021), northern China’s coldest temperatures of the last 5000 years occurred 300 calibrated years before present (cal yr BP), coinciding with the Little Ice […]

Researchers Foresee Weak Solar Cycles Until 2050… “Unwelcome Meteorological And Climatic Consequences”!

Analyzing the cyclic nature of solar activity, leading scientists suggest a solar minimum is set to persist until 2050. It’s important to estimate the features of the next solar cycle because they serve to improve preparedness in space exploration and minimizing risks in technological and sociological activities. The ability to understand historical solar magnetic parameters […]

Magnitude Of Recent Surface Solar Radiation Forcing Over US Is Tens Of Times Greater Than From CO2

Over the US, the modest change in cloud cover from 1996-2019 predominantly drove the +11.77 W/m² surface solar radiation forcing during 1996-2012 (then -2.35 W/m² from 2013-2019). These “brightening” and “dimming” magnitudes easily overwhelm the values associated with an annual 2 to 2.5 ppm rise in CO2 forcing (0.2 W/m² per decade). When cloud cover […]
