Local trends 1998 to 2014

Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, has an excellent 4'30" video from the Prager University

"The Truth about CO2".

This is an absolute must-watch!

Arctic minimum summer sea ice volume is increasing, and winter maxima either are stable or might also be slightly going up. Read here

Watch this speech of Nobelist Ivar Giaever at the Lindau 2015 meeting: Global Warming Revisited:

"Global Warming has become a religion"

"Global Warming is a non problem"

"Mr. President (Obama), you are dead wrong!"

"We have to stop wasting huge amount of money on climate change...it's not sustainable"

Here is the Mainau 2015 declaration on climate change, that was signed by only 56% (35 out of 66)of the nobelists!

New interesting paper by Ineson et al.: "Regional climate impacts of a possible future grand solar minimum". Finally "main-stream" researchers acknowledge what climate realists have said since many years: the solar influence is badly misrepresented in the official IPCC politically correct science! Read also my comment in the BLOG. read also this new paper by Usoskin showing that the Maunder minimum really ...was a grand minimum! Read here the 2013 paper by Abdussamatov "Grand Minimum of the TSI leads to the Little Ice Age". Look at figure 8 !



Read here how new research papers continuously find lower climate sensitivities for a CO2 doubling: do you really think that this science is settled?

0. The new dual-dynamo solar model by Popova et al. predicts Maunder-type cooling around 2030. Read here a very sober and clear discussion on this item that caused much media furore (and listen to an interview with me on radio RTL.lu). Read also here and Scafetta's paper here and look at the following figure from his presentation:

1. Read Alan Carlin's comment on the CIC (Climate-Industrial-Complex): The Fantasy World of Climate Alarmism.

2. New study from A. Fisher et al. measures heat flow at the base of West Antarctic ice sheet much bigger than assumed. See blog comment here.

3. Blomberg: German Green Power forces neighbors to bolster blackout defenses.
"Trading stops have exploded since the fourth quarter, especially on the import side"

4. Indur Goklany: The human triumph of fossil fuels.

5. Making sense of the Tesla triumvirate - solar, batteries and electric vehicles. Read this comment by Graham Palmer on bravenewclimate.

6. The Climate Debate in the USA: read this presentation by Prof. Judith Curry made at the GWPF: "
My concern is that we have over-simplified both the climate change problem and its solutions".

Full text (with my highlights) of the encyclical.
Excellent comment by Indur Goklany: The Pontifical Academies' Broken Moral Compass:
"But it is a strange moral calculus that endorses policies that would reduce existing gains in human wellbeing, increase the cost of humanity’s basic necessities, increase poverty, and reduce the terrestrial biosphere’s future productivity and ability to support biomass, all in order to solve future problems that may not even exist ."
Read here a new GWPF report by Bishop Peter Forster and Bernard Donoughue "The Papal Encyclical: A critical Christian response":
"To us the encyclical is coloured too much by a hankering for a past world, prior to the Industrial Revolution, which is assumed to have been generally simpler, cleaner, and happier. There is little historical evidence for such a vision, and for most people then life was brief, painful, poor, and even brutal."


10. A real cool 12 minute video by Dr. David Evans "Climate change in 12 minutes". Peek also into this animated video by Dr. Roy Spencer.


Bill Gates, who said poor countries “desperately need cheap sources of energy now to fuel economic growth that lifts families out of poverty. They can’t afford today’s expensive clean energy solutions and we can’t expect them to wait for the technology to get cheaper.” - See more at: http://www.thegwpf.com/new-climate-change-battlefront-pits-tony-abbott-against-the-anti-coal-brigade/#sthash.J5szcsdQ.dpuf

James Lovelock: "They all talk, they pass laws, they do things, as if they knew what was happening. I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess. And a whole group of them meet together and encourage each other’s guesses." (link)

97. Words of the great physicist Freeman Dyson: "Unfortunately the global warming hysteria, as I see it, is driven by politics more than by science. If it happens that I am wrong and the climate experts are right, it is still true that the remedies are far worse than the disease that they claim to cure."

98. Words by the great French philosopher Pascal Bruckner: "All the foolishness of Bolshevism, Maoism, and Trotskyism are somehow reformulated exponentially in the name of saving the planet." (comments here and here)

99. R. Lindzen: "Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age"

 "Le doute est le commen-cement de la science ; qui ne doute de rien n'examine rien ; qui n'examine rien ne découvre rien ; qui ne découvre rien est aveugle et demeure aveugle".
Jean Chardin, 1686. Journal du voyage du chevalier Chardin en Perse.


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Fire and Ice, R. Frost, 1920

"The greatest challenge facing mankind is the challenge of distinguishing reality from fantasy, truth from propaganda."
Michael Crichton + 4Nov08

"Und denn, man muß das Wahre immer wiederholen, weil auch der Irrtum um uns her immer wieder gepredigt wird, und zwar nicht von einzelnen, sondern von der Masse. In Zeitungen und Enzyklopädien, auf Schulen und Universitäten, überall ist der Irrtum oben auf, und es ist ihm wohl und behaglich, im Gefühl der Majorität, die auf seiner Seite ist". Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1828.

Cours de Formation pour Exploitants de Solariums- Lehrgang für Solarienbetreiber (2008)

The data of MeteoLCD are used to compute the UV-Index published by several Luxembourg periodicals. A research project done in collaboration with the Radiation Protection Office of Luxembourg studies the general UV pattern and the relationship between UVB irradiance and tropospheric ozone concentrations.
