Breaking: New Swiss Study Postpones Warming By Decades

March 31, 2017

By Paul Homewood




From No Tricks:


Climate scientists at Switzerland’s renowned ETH Zurich and the University of Bern have long warned of the risks of man-made global warming.

But in a brand new study their results now appear to have compelled them to postpone the expected global warming – by a few decades!

They now claim that a weaker sun (now expected over the coming decades) could reduce temperatures by half a degree Celsius.

Moreover the scientists clearly concede that the earth’s climate system is nowhere near as well understood as some scientists would like to have us believe and that the sun indeed plays a major role after all – enough so to override and postpone the effects of the often hyped greenhouse gases.

This will be hugely disappointing news for the catastrophe-hopers and cheerleaders, who hold front row tickets to the announced climate catastrophe, which according to some should be happening already.

The Swiss scientists say that sun’s impact on climate change has now been quantified “for first time” (see postscript below).

The Swiss scientists say that their model calculations show a plausible way that fluctuations in solar activity could have a tangible impact on the climate. The Swiss National Science Foundation-funded studies now expect human-induced global warming to tail off slightly over the next few decades. A weaker sun could reduce temperatures by half a degree.

The sun a factor after all

There is human-induced climate change, and there are natural climate fluctuations, the scientists acknowledge, and say one important factor in the unchanging rise and fall of the Earth’s temperature and its different cycles is the sun. As its activity varies, so does the intensity of the sunlight that reaches the earth’s surface. Previously IPCC reports assumed that recent solar activity was insignificant for climate change, and that the same would apply to activity in the near future.

“Significant effect”

However, researchers from the Physical Meteorological Observatory Davos (PMOD), the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (EAWAG), ETH Zurich and the University of Bern are now qualifying this assumption. Their elaborate model calculations now provide a robust estimate of the contribution that the sun is expected to make to temperature change in the next 100 years and a significant effect is apparent.

They expect the Earth’s temperature to fall by half a degree when solar activity reaches its next minimum.

This of course backs up a number of other studies which have come to similar conclusions.

A drop of half a degree would effectively take us back to 1960 levels.

    It is “Our Mister Sun.” Who knew?

    Lets be realists for a change; they do not know anything that they didn’t know last week. The point is that new models do not mean new information they just mean here is a new guess. Our scientific knowledge is not capable of predicting climate so stop wasting our money on a problem that probably does not exist.

    Hi, I was trying to find your contact details to explain the importance of this article:

    Hopefully it’s self-explanatory.

    Perhaps the alarmist roll-back by certain “climate scientists” is slowly beginning.

      It is just a standard emission of squid ink. The wearisome pretending can continue until such time as everyone is retired on unblockaable pensions.

      As the temperature falls, they will say CAGW is merely masked – it is actually in the world, you just can’t see it!!!!! All of a piece with the ploy in recent years to make alarmist points about places nobody goes to, and meaningless measurements of things which ordinary people can’t sense.

      It is incredible cheek (or, blind stupidity) for them to say THEY have discovered anything.

    I read the paper. Unconvincing at best. The tipoff in the lead post citing NoTricksZone is the paper’s “elaborate model calculations”.

    Where do they get “decades: from?
    Cycle 24 is predicted to hit it’s minimum in about the the middle of 2020. Then cycle 25 begins and if usual the activity starts to ramp up to the next solar max. A solar cycle generally spans 11-13 years. So one would expect the next solar max to occur somewhere around 2026 or so. That is not even one decade from now. Or are they claiming to be able to predict solar activity over multiple cycles and saying it’s going to be subdued for multiple cycles?

    Judge alarmists’ motives by their reactions to this type of report. If AGW really IS as bad as is made out then anything that even hints at Saving the Planet should trigger widespread relief and positivity. How could it not? One minute we’re all gonna die, the next our personal Apocalypse is postponed for a bit. Who wouldn’t be happy at that?

    Instead what will happen is reports like this will be discredited and attacked from the off. Good news that helps to falsify AGW theory is the last thing they want to hear! The whole AGW industry is a power and money trip. Always has been.
