Iowa scientists: Drought a sign of climate changeThe New Nostradamus of the North: Great news from Germany: Climate change is "not the highest priority" for Merkel
Brilliant theory – except that Iowa has been getting wetter and experiencing fewer droughts.
As always before UN mega climate meetings, the global warming lobby - which nowadays also includes the World Bank - is desperately trying to scare politicians into "action". In Germany, chancellor Merkel's climate advisor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber is doing his part in the scare mongering campaign, but the "world famous physicist and climate researcher" appears to be rather frustrated with his boss, for whom global warming is "not the highest priority":THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds urban heat islands can account for up to 2°C warming
A paper published today in Theoretical and Applied Climatology finds "The impact of urbanization on annual mean surface air temperature has been found to be more than 1 °C in urban areas, and the maximum difference is almost 2 °C." While climate alarmists claim this urban heat island [UHI] effect has had an insignificant effect on observed temperatures, this paper and many others show that the UHI effect is significantly greater than the 0.7C global warming observed since 1850. The majority of weather stations are located near areas of urbanization or have other siting issues that can exaggerate warming.
