As CO2 has increased, wildfire acreage in the US has dramatically decreased.
Obama, the UN and the global warming alarmist media fail to tell you this because it completely wrecks their politically motivated climate change agenda.
What other inconvenient climate facts do they hide from you to protect their reputations and the climate con in general?
By Paul Homewood
There was a bit of interesting testimony at the Senate Sub-Committee on Green Jobs and the New Economy in June. Professor David South, one of the top US experts on forestry, trashes claims that AGW is making wildfires worse.
Testimony of David B. South
Retired Emeritus Professor, Auburn University

Human Activity, more so than Climate Change, Affects the Number and Size of Wildfires
I am David B. South, Emeritus Professor of Forestry, Auburn University. In 1999 I was awarded
the Society of American Foresters’ Barrington Moore Award for research in the area of
biological science and the following year I was selected as Auburn University’s “Distinguished
Graduate Lecturer.” In 1993 I received a Fulbright award to conduct tree seedling research at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and in 2002 I was a Canterbury Fellow…

Read this to see how NASA is corrupting science and defrauding you the taxpayer.
“It doesn’t matter what is true,
it only matters what people believe is true.”

“The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations
on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.”

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.“

Warm periods during the past, like the MWP and the 1930′s completely wreck the global warming narrative – so NASA puts a lot of effort into erasing the 1930′s, while Mann takes down the MWP. The work NASA is doing to corrupt the Vestmannaeyja, Iceland…

RECORD COLD REPORTED IN GREENLAND
Via GWPF :
Date: 06/08/16 Danish Meteorological Institute
Last month’s weather observations in Greenland established not just one but two new records according to senior climatologist John Cappelen.
“The total precipitation received in Tasiilaq was only 0.1 mm in July. This has never happened since we have taken measurements up there – and we have made them there since 1898,” said the climatologist.
“And although it has been generally warm in Greenland in the summer – particularly on the East Coast – the second record was actually a cold record.”
On August 1, the Danish Meteorological Institute’s measuring station registered an appalling -30.7 ° C at the ice cap’s summit.
“This is the lowest temperature for July we have from this station,” said John Cappelen.
The previous record was -27.7 ° C on 30 July 1992.

Daniel Andrews’ wind farm plan will add to bird deaths
25 July 2016
LAST week Premier Daniel Andrews made a very big deal of launching a new wind farm near Dundonnell in Victoria’s southwest.
It was going to create 300 direct (and, ahem, indirect) jobs in construction and a massive — well, all of — “up to” 16 jobs when operational. Best of all, it was going to generate enough electricity to “power” 140,000 homes.
That is, of course, when the wind is blowing. For as South Australians have been — very expensively — discovering of recent months, when the wind don’t blow the power don’t flow.
But when the opposite happens, when the wind does blow, the turbines are not just generating power, they are slaughtering birds.
What the Premier “forgot” to mention last week, is that the Dundonnell wind farm has not yet received…

Ironic that the opening of the Olympics had a political segment on climate change when the place is so polluted and filthy.
Welcome to the world of socialism.
Global Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations from Oct. 1 through Nov. 11, as recorded by NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2. Carbon dioxide concentrations are highest above northern Australia, southern Africa and eastern Brazil. Preliminary analysis of the African data shows the high levels there are largely driven by the burning of savannas and forests. Elevated carbon dioxide can also be seen above industrialized Northern Hemisphere regions in China, Europe and North America.

Sporting News has published a scathing critique of Brazil’s attempt to prop up its rather shaky green credentials by wedging a “buzzkill” climate message into their Olympic opening ceremony.

There’s a new essay from Indur Goklany in response to a recent Reuters news article.
Yesterday Reuters reported on a study which claimed that heat is the deadliest form of natural hazard for the United States. However, this result is based on questionable data. The study used results for mortality from extreme heat and cold that can be traced to the National Climatic Data Center. But these data are substantially different from mortality data from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) based on the Compressed Mortality File for the United States. The latter uses death certificate records, which provide the cause of each recorded death (based on medical opinion). It is reasonable to believe that regarding the cause of death, particularly for extreme cold and heat, medical opinion as captured in death certificate records is more reliable than determinations made by the meteorologists in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s NCDC (even if they have Ph.Ds.).

Energy sanity, sense and reason prevails in South Africa.
Watch for more countries to ditch the feel-good green fantasy of wind/solar power, to adopt nuclear as their premier supplier of non-CO2 emitting baseload power.
STT followers might have tumbled to the fact that we’ve been pretty heavily focused on SA over the last month.
However, in this post, we head a few thousand clicks, west across the Indian Ocean to another ‘SA’; this time South Africa, which appears entirely sensible enough to be able to avoid the power supply and pricing calamity unfolding in South Australia.
With a solid grip on power generation essentials, the CEO of South Africa’s biggest power provider Eskom, Brian Molefe, is hip to fact that wind power is a proven failure, and is all set to plug South Africa into a nuclear powered future.
Renewable power ‘just raises Eskom’s costs’

Public opinion may back an increasing proportion of renewable energy being plugged into South Africa’s power grid, but Eskom CEO Brian Molefe says further…

With no statistically significant difference between this year’s temperatures and 1998’s, despite record and rising CO2 emissions, Professor Zharkova’s observations seem (unfortunately) rather plausible. ‘Unfortunately’ in that a cooler climate means a far harsher environment for humanity than warmer or ‘climate optimum’ periods, like the medieval or Roman warming periods, where global temps were 1-2C higher than current global temps.
Via the GWPF: Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun. If correct, this new discovery means that future solar cycles and variations in the Sun’s activity can be predicted more accurately.
The research suggests that the next three solar cycles will see solar activity reduce significantly into the middle of the century, producing conditions similar to those last seen in the 1600s – during the Maunder Minimum. This may have implications for temperatures here on Earth. Future solar cycles will serve as a test of the astrophysicists’ work, but some climate scientists have not welcomed the research and even tried to suppress the new findings.
New Solar Research Raises Climate Questions, Triggers Attacks
To most of us the sun seems unchanging. But if you observe its surface, it is seething with vast explosions and ejections. This activity…

Are we seeing an Arctic change? Three out of the four most recent years show increase in ice volume not seen since 2003.
Guest essay by Frank Lansner
DMI publishes daily their Arctic ice volume data in the form of graphs. From these it is possible to retrieve the data and plot them as you like.
So, first I plotted all years available, 2003 – 2016 for the period May 16 to Aug 8 to show the melt season. Not all dates in the period was used, but enough to get the overall picture.
The first that caught my interest was obviously how 2016 was “performing” in comparison with the other years 2003 – 2015. The winter winds Nov 2015 – Feb 2016 were quite harsh to the ice as it was generally blown towards the Atlantic via East Greenland. This may explain the very low levels of ice volume May…
