Scientific Consensus in 1500's: Climate can be controlled by sacrifice.


Tower of human skulls in Mexico casts new light on Aztecs

Global Warming fears in the 1500's?
The Aztecs and other Mesoamerican peoples performed ritualistic human sacrifices as offerings to the sun. Tens of thousands of skulls, many women and children, were mentioned by Andres de Tapia, a Spanish soldier who accompanied Cortes in the 1521 conquest of Mexico.

It's a good thing we changed the name from GLOBAL WARMING to "climate change".

The climate has changed since day #1, so it's a great money making scare tactic which will never end since "There's a sucker born every minute."


Solar cycle #24 continues to be one of the weakest in (recorded) history.

North Pole Record Summer Cold...


Harsh winter took heavy toll on wildlife across western USA...

Wildlife managers in Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Washington also reported higher losses of animals in the wake of one of the coldest and snowiest winters in decades. Parts of the Rockies saw snowfall as late as mid-June.

“This year we kind of had all the factors that we don’t want – we had deep snow, we had periods of fairly cold weather, subzero, and then we also had some crusting on top of that snow.”

The biggest criminal “assault on science”: Fatal Courtroom Act Ruins Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann

Michael Mann, shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud.

“We believe he [Mann] withheld on the basis of a US court ruling that it was all his intellectual property. This ruling was made despite the fact the US taxpayer paid for the research and the research results were used as the basis of literally earth-shattering policies on energy and environment. The problem for him is that the Canadian court holds that you cannot withhold documents that are central to your charge of defamation regardless of the US ruling.”

Esteemed American climate scientist, Dr Judith Curry, has submitted to the court an Amicus Curiae legal brief exposing Mann. The world can now see that his six-year legal gambit to silence his most effective critics and chill scientific debate has spectacularly backfired.



Greenland sets coldest July temp ever in Northern Hemisphere...


Almost all of Greenland’s surface is gaining ice.

GIGO: Garbage in = Garbage out

Fake Data = Fake Science

SHOCK CLAIM: Temp Adjustments Account For 'Nearly All Warming'...

“Each dataset 'adjustment" pushed down the 1940s warming and pushed up the current warming.”

“The conclusive findings of this research are that the three [global average surface temperature] data sets are not a valid representation of reality,” the study found. “In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”

Based on these results, the study’s authors claim the science underpinning the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) authority to regulate greenhouse gases “is invalidated.”


Meanwhile: The sun is heading towards a solar minimum, say NASA scientists, expected in 2019-2020.

Some claim that the sun has no effect on climate!

But notice that this NASA video says that during solar minimum extreme UV radiation is reduced and (@2:45) says that the upper atmosphere COOLS.


Sun quiets...

Australia Weather Bureau Caught Tampering With Climate Numbers...

Investigators analyzed raw temperature data from places across Australia, compared them to BOM data, and found the agency’s data created an artificial warming trend. Marohasey said BOM adjustments changed Aussie temperature records from a slight cooling trend to one of “dramatic warming” over the past century.

UPDATE: Temperature readings plunge after Australia orders end to 'tampering'...


It has been reported online that electronic smart cards were allegedly fitted to the BoM’s automatic weather stations, which put a limit on how low temperatures could be recorded in official weather data.

Controversy has dogged the bureau’s automatic weather station network since Goulburn man Lance Pigeon saw a -10.4C reading on the BoM’s website on July 2 automatically adjust to -10C, then disappear.

Later independent monitoring of the Thredbo Top station by scientist Jennifer Marohasy showed a recording of -10.6C ­vanish from the record.

BoM initially claimed the adjustments were part of its quality control procedures. But bureau chief executive Andrew Johnson later told Environment Minister Josh­ Frydenberg that investigations had found a number of cold-weather stations were not “fit for purpose” and would be replaced.

August chill ahead for most of USA...


Unseasonably chilly August ahead for the eastern two-thirds of the US with 60F lows lasting up to TWO WEEKS


Solar Cycle 24 activity is among the weakest on record.

But it has no effect on the earth's temperature....according to consensus of "experts".



And as the CO2
concentration of the air
continues to rise in the
future, this positive
externality of enhanced crop
production will benefit
society in the years, decades,
and even centuries to come.

Darn those scientists!


Federal Climate Report Released Before Trump Can Bury It



“Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans,” the report states. “Thousands of studies conducted by tens of thousands of scientists around the world have documented changes in surface, atmospheric, and oceanic temperatures; melting glaciers; disappearing snow cover; shrinking sea ice; rising sea level; and an increase in atmospheric water vapor. Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases, are primarily responsible for recent observed climate changes.”


And from the New York Times:


Government Report Finds Drastic Impact of Climate Change on U.S.

"If you've heard this story before, don't stop me because I'd like to hear it again," Groucho Marx (on market history?).

“I've learned in options trading simple is best and the obvious is often the most elusive to recognize.”


"The god of trading rewards persistence, experience and discipline, and absolutely nothing else."

"Climate Experts" know so little.


Scientists discover 91 additional volcanoes below Antarctic ice sheet...


This is in addition to 47 already known about and eruption would melt more ice in region affected by "climate change".

Scientists have uncovered the largest volcanic region on Earth – two kilometres below the surface of the vast ice sheet that covers west Antarctica.

Volcanic eruptions may not reach the surface but could melt the ice from beneath and drastically destabilize it
