Some weather as the Jet Stream passes overhead


The rain has eased since the weekend with showers more isolated and much lighter* with the sun emerging for longer stretches. The video above was my attempt to record a particularly heavy squall which ended when the wind and rain made a mockery of my shelter under the trees and broke my umbrella.

Shameless Climate McCarthyism on full display – scientist forced to resign

The true consensus in climate is omerta. Imagine if skeptics had hounded someone in such a disgraceful manner.

“I had not expecting such an enormous world-wide pressure put at me from a community that I have been close to all my active life. Colleagues are withdrawing their support, other colleagues are withdrawing from joint authorship etc. I see no limit and end to what will happen. It is a situation that reminds me about the time of McCarthy. I would never have expecting anything similar in such an original peaceful community as meteorology. Apparently it has been transformed in recent years.”

Watts Up With That?

Climate McCarthyism: “Are you now or have you ever been a climate skeptic?”.

Hans von Storch reports on an email that I also received today, but held waiting on a statement from The GWPF. Since von Storch has already published the email, breaking my self-imposed embargo, I’ll add the GWPF statement when it becomes available.

The Media over-hyped the West Antarctica climate propaganda reporting

Watts Up With That?

Studies do not address sea level rise projections alleged by misleading media headlines

Guest essay by Larry Hamlin

As seems to always be the case the climate fear propaganda news media have completely mislead the public once again regarding climate related issues this time by alleging claims of 4 meter high future sea level rise increases supposedly addressed in two recent studies which performed analysis of glacier melt behavior of six large glaciers in West Antarctica.

One study was published in Geophysical Research Letters (GRL) and titled “Sustained increase in ice discharge from the Amundsen Sea Embayment, West Antarctica, from 1973 to 2013“. This study is available here:

The second study was published in Science and titled “Marine Ice Sheet Collapse Potentially Under Way for the Thwaites Glacier Basin, West Antarctica“. This study is available here:

Both studies evaluate the relatively recent melt rate…
