New Study finds no evidence of a ‘signal of human-caused climate change’ from weather extremes

July 9, 2020

By Paul Homewood


Roger Pielke Jr brings news of the imminent publication of his latest paper:









Pielke has written many papers over the years, which have come to similar conclusions. What is significant about this one is that he has reviewed studies by other authors.

    One thing is certain. You won’t hear about the results of this study on the BBC. The BBC doesn’t like the truth being spread.

    Well, we can no doubt expect to see him “cancelled” very soon.

      He has been denounced as a climate change denier many times, even though he is a luke warmist.

    better get the met office and environment agency to read the paper…..they are both blaming climate change for extreme know…. they are the experts..we are the ostracised climate change deniers and should be imprisoned according to that nutty professor catriona mckinnon at exeter!! Postercide???

      Geoff, this morning, Today had the headman from the NG (I think they said) and he was claiming that ruinables were producing near 40% of our electricity! But he was mainly going on about the fact that having now reached 1 deg above 1850 temps we were within 5 years of the magic 1.5 degrees as decreed as being bad by the IPCC and Paris. Sheesh!!

        Unreliables are currently producing 20% of our (reduced) electricity generation. Averaged 30% last week & 26% of the last 12 months.

        Biomass at drax counts as does hydro. drax has been at 3GW weekdays.

        Hydros fair enough, but to call chopping down trees and burning them as ‘renewable’ is extremely tenuous.

    Surprise, surprise!!

    It’s obvious that nothing of significance is occurring. The Guardian is wailing today about CO2 levels and the last time they were this high temperatures were 3-4C ‘hotter’. (note the scary language)

    So what?

    If temperatures were warmer back then due to CO2 and the ‘runaway’ warming theory then CO2 levels would’ve continued to rise, driving evermore warming, and we wouldn’t be here now. Yet here we are!

    There’s also been very little warming these past 30 years, with high levels of allegedly) human-driven C2. Temperature increases are running at a very modest per century rate of 1.2C. so NO high sensitivity ether.

    NO runaway warming and NO high climate sensitivity = NO global warming problem. Too simple for some to understand, though.

    “Hurricane Sandy is a stark reminder of the rising risks of climate change. A number of warming-related factors may well have intensified the storm’s impact. … New research suggests that Arctic melting may be increasing the risk of the kind of atmospheric traffic jam that drove Sandy inland.”

    But wait….”Hurricane Sandy was not the first to hit New York: A 1938 storm ‘The Long Island Express’ pounded the Eastern Seaboard. The storm formed near the coast of Africa in September of the 1938 hurricane season, becoming a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane scale before making landfall as a Category 3 hurricane on Long Island on September 21.
    Long Island was struck first, before New England, Vermont, New Hampshire and Quebec, earning the storm the nickname the ‘Long Island Express’. The winds reached up to 150 mph and had waves surging to around 25–35 feet high.[The destruction was immense and took a while to rebuild. The western side of the hurricane caused sustained tropical storm-force winds, high waves, and storm surge along much of the New Jersey coast. In Atlantic City the surge destroyed much of the boardwalk. Additionally, the surge inundated several coastal communities; Wildwood was under 3 feet (0.91 m) of water at the height of the storm. The maximum recorded wind gust was 70 m.p.h. at Sandy Hook.”
