Good find. Makes sense.

We’ve been discussing the sudden rise in UK and European temperatures in the 1990s, and I was reminded about a study undertaken by Clive Best and Euan Mearns looking at the role of cloud cover four years ago:
Clouds have a net average cooling effect on the earth’s climate. Climate models assume that changes in cloud cover are a feedback response to CO2 warming. Is this assumption valid? Following a study with Euan Mearns showing a strong correlation in UK temperatures with clouds, we looked at the global effects of clouds by developing a combined cloud and CO2 forcing model to sudy how variations in both cloud cover  and CO2  data affect global temperature anomalies between 1983 and 2008. The model as described below gives a good fit to HADCRUT4 data with a Transient Climate Response (TCR )= 1.6±0.3°C. The 17-year hiatus in…

AFTER hundreds of €BILLIONS of taxpayer’s hard-earned money spent, Germany’s Energiewende program exposed as a catastrophic failure.
WHEN will this ideological push for symbolic, costly, unreliable, unwanted, economically and environmentally destructive, symbolic, fake ‘energy’ end?

In its INDC at Paris, the EU stated that it was committed to a binding target of an at
least 40% domestic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990, to be fulfilled jointly.
However the UK has gone much further by committing to a cut of 57%, thanks to the legally binding Fifth Carbon Budget, written by John Gummer’s Committee on Climate Change.
But what about Germany, where we hear so much about the Energiewende? Surely they must be at least matching our efforts?
