The word “Climate” stirs emotion, and if used by science
simulates knowledge.

In the way science has been using the word climate over many decades, the general public and politics is grossly misguided since long. The reason is that science has been incapable to demonstrate that they are able to define the terms they work with. Actually they use a layman term, broadly understood as average weather since time immemorial. While this has been never defined within the laymen sphere, meteorology said it can be explained as “statistical

The fact is certain. Global temperatures have increased in the past 150 years. There is no need for science to determine this. A few dozen thermometers read daily and recorded statistically would prove it.
Now several 10,000 scientists are active, at the cost of several billion, tirelessly claiming that the warming is mainly related to the higher, man-made, CO2 (carbon dioxide). This is possible to a percentage, but it can also be seriously wrong. More than an

The previous post was well received: A lot has been wrong with the handling of historical temperature data. But climate science does not care. In the field of a fair and transparent language the situation is much clumsier.

Many of the used terms in climatology are extremely superficial, if not meaningless, which is a major reason for the hysteria in the current climate change debate. And science is using them recklessly. The result is obvious, when the claim is made: The world may

A lot has been wrong with the handling of historical temperature data

For a long time, a lot has been wrong with the handling of historical temperature data available for the last 150 years or so. They are misrepresented, interpreted or simply falsified. It is not only frustrating, but also dangerous for a sensible climate debate and what real dangers humanity may face in the future.

Now Kenneth Richard, 25th July 2019, has taken on, at NOTRICKZONE, to clarify a few facts. The whole title is: “1970s: Earth Warmed 0.6°C From 1880-1940 And Cooled

THE NEW YORK TIME started reporting about the Battle of Jutland on 03 June 1919. The weather conditions before, during and after the sea battles were rarely mentioned and never analyzed. Only at the end of a report on 06 June 2016, the one sentence appeared: “The hazy weather was Germany’s friend, as it necessitated action at closer range”, (see the entire report HERE: 28_Haze Germ friend_June06 ) The issue is much more

What contributed naval warfare to remarkable winter
and the Arctic sea ice in summer 1917?

Posted 31st March 2019

Do more than 5000 submerged merchant ships, two extremely winters, and the largest sea ice extent in the North Atlantic (NA) during the entire last Century, in summer 1917, fit together? Yes, at least it is the only convincing explanation for the three extraordinary events. The link is the naval war during the First World War (WWI), causing the extreme cold winter in Western Europe 1916/17, the NA sea-ice in summer 1917, and the record cold winter  1917/18 in North

Sea surface data have fascinated science since long. Sea going vessels were requested to collect water temperature around the world frequently, often once on each watch. But what are they worth today if the method of measurements changed several times, and the type of ships and the sample taking seaman varied on a daily basis. There are many other variations, for example the sea surface conditions by wind and height of waves. While that inherits uncertainty, any attempt to adjust them unison will improve little if anything.  

Western Europe mild winter temperatures – Dec/Jan/Feb.  2018/19

The unusual winter conditions can be easily attributed the North Atlantic and adjacent seas in Norther Europe. One low air pressure is followed by the next follows. They chase each other and push Siberian high pressure the cold air eastwards the Ural Mountains. Is this constellation that North America fell prey to extreme cold and snowy winter condition? By the end of January the US Midwest was paralyzed by winter freeze colder than Antarctica. Has the unhindered move of Atlantic cyclones across Europe eastward contributed?

Weather ‘blocked’ by North Sea offshore wind farms and shipping?

In Northern Europe winter hasn’t shown up. The current status is shown in a number of Figures. The situation is far away from usual. Current February is several degrees above ling time average. Will it go on this way, or will harsh winter conditions emerge in spring? Presumably only few meteorologists will try to make conclusive forecast on Europe’s weather in forthcoming March, April and May. Their computer models rely on statistics. Rarely do they included two factor influencing Northern Europe’s winter conditions, namely the influence
