If ever there was a more hilarious example of the ridiculousness and dud-prediction littered landscape of the climate change alarm industry.
Readers of WUWT and millions of climate skeptics have read this article before, and in fact it is likely one of the most cited articles ever that illustrates the chutzpah and sheer hubris on display from a climate scientist who was so certain he could predict the future with certainty. Dr. David Viner of the Climatic Research Unit who famously said:
From the Independent’s most cited article: Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past by Charles Onians:
However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
It seems however, that after over…

Like the old sailors say, “The wind is free, but everything else costs money” – lots and lots of money!
Wind worshippers continue to make wild claims about wind power already being “free” – and, apparently, getting cheaper all the time.
Although, it appears that selling a product with no commercial value (apart from the massive subsidies it attracts) is getting tougher all the time. Even the merest mention of a cut to subsidies has the wind industry’s parasites quaking in their boots.
Now – in a ‘hey, quick, look over there!’ kind of move – the wind industry’s spruikers have taken to making claims about the costs of wind power, that would make Pinocchio blush.
Wind: Still Two Or Three Times The Cost Of Conventional Energy, Whatever The Greenies Claim
19 October 2015
That was the headline in the Independent this time last week. I’m not suggesting for a moment that you’re an Independent reader but suppose for a moment you were: what do you…

In 2008, NOAA correctly showed the hiatus in temperatures over the previous decade.
But this summer ahead of Paris, they made the hiatus disappear. NOAA currently reports directly to the Obama White House, so this sort of Grubering of the climate is to be expected.
A smoking gun of fraud is that the new tampered NOAA temperature data diverges from satellite temperatures at a remarkable rate. Satellites show cooling this century, while NOAA now shows a strong warming trend.
The new NOAA temperatures are diverging linearly from reality at a rate of 1.4C per century.
NOAA doesn’t actually have any temperature records from most of the land surface, so they simply make them up. Gray below is missing data.
If Tom Karl was an actual scientist, he would be not only mention these fatal issues prominently in the NOAA reports, but he would be so concerned about them that he would never actually release…
