Negative greenhouse effect over the high and cold Antarctic plateau

It was Schmithusen and colleagues who in 2015 published research showing that the radiative greenhouse effect went into reverse over Antarctica’s high and cold plateaus. This is because the elevated ground level is colder than the stratosphere. This made sense in terms of the “emission height” based explanation of the CO2 greenhouse effect. Normally the … Continue reading Negative greenhouse effect over the high and cold Antarctic plateau

Southern Hemisphere Sea Ice Now Extends ~80 km Farther North Than Prior Estimates

Reblogged from NoTricksZone, Pierre Gosselin https://notrickszone.com/2021/05/10/new-study-southern-hemisphere-sea-ice-now-extends-80-km-further-north-than-prior-estimates/ By Kenneth Richard on 10 May 2021 It was previously thought the northern limit for Southern Hemisphere sea ice was 55°S. But recent declines in surface air temperatures in southernmost South America have led to sea ice formation creeping 80 to 100 kilometers further north than previous estimates. Since … Continue reading Southern Hemisphere Sea Ice Now Extends ~80 km Farther North Than Prior Estimates

Data from real world covid19 vaccination show AstraZeneca’s vaccine at least as effective as Pfizer’s

In 2021 at the rollout of several vaccines against the covid19 pandemic, many nations and pharmaceutical companies chose to attack the vaccine created by Oxford University and AstraZeneca, due to mafia style commercial rivalry in the USA and due to resentment of Brexit Britain in Europe. Pretext after pretext was advanced to discredit the AstraZeneca … Continue reading Data from real world covid19 vaccination show AstraZeneca’s vaccine at least as effective as Pfizer’s

George Blake’s espionage: revenge for the “England Game”?

This week marks the death at 98 years of George Blake, one of the notorious Soviet spies within Britain’s Cold War spy establishment. For a decade in the 50’s to 60’s he passed information to the Soviets leading to the capture of more than 40 spies behind the iron curtain. The England Game Blake was … Continue reading George Blake’s espionage: revenge for the “England Game”?

World Wheat Crop Heads For New Record

Reposted from Paul Homewood’s site “Not a Lot of People Know That”. And they don’t. Did you? Record harvests – is this the climate disaster we are told to fear? “The only thing to fear is fear itself” said Franklin D. Roosvelt. More CO2 makes more photosynthesis. Primary school level science that contradicts the whole army of salaried climate doomsayers. Or as Michael Stipe of REM would put it, “It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine!”

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

IMPROVED late-season yield prospects in greater Europe and Australia have lifted the estimate for global wheat production by 5.9 million tonnes (Mt) from the previous Agricultural Market Information Systems (AMIS) estimate released last month.

The lift was offset by a total 1Mt decline in projections in Canada and Argentina.

The net 4.8Mt increase lifts the forecast for the world 2020-21 wheat crop to a record 764.9Mt, pipping by just a few million tonnes the previous records set in 2019-20 and 2017-18 (chart 1).

Rapid warming at the end of the last Eemian interglacial caused sea level to rise several meters – just before ice age returned

This palaeo climate reconstruction of the interglacial before our own Holocene - the one called the Eemian - obtained identical results in the Caribbean and in Australia showing a remarkable warming peak at the very end of that interglacial. Link (remove spaces): http : //350.me.uk/TR/Hansen/GlobalSeauow045009 . pdf Even more strikingly, this warming was accompanied by … Continue reading Rapid warming at the end of the last Eemian interglacial caused sea level to rise several meters – just before ice age returned

Atmospheric CO2 is good for the deep ocean

This nice paper from 2020 by Marcantonio et al shows – perhaps paradoxically – from meticulous sediment isotope data over nearly 200k years, that higher atmospheric CO2 results in higher deep ocean oxygenation. They found that deep ocean anoxia, indicated by the presence of a chemical form of uranium, was associated with glacial periods of low atmospheric … Continue reading Atmospheric CO2 is good for the deep ocean
