Christopher Monckton has issued an extensive and detailed critique and refutation of a widely circulated 83-minute personal attack on him by one J.P. Abraham, a lecturer in fluid mechanics at the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota.

Ocean CO2 Storage - Revised

source: The Resiliant Earth
by: Doug L. Hoffman

The ocean is Earth's largest single sink for CO2 outside of the planet's crust itself. Simple sea creatures depend on carbon dissolved in the ocean's water for their existence, and their actions create a biological carbon “pump” that removes vast quantities of CO2 from the atmosphere. Large amounts are suspended in the water column as dissolved organic carbon (DOC), and each year the ocean's biological pump deposits some 300 million tons of carbon in the deep ocean sink. New findings have revealed that massive amounts of carbon are converted into “inedible” forms of organic carbon that remain out of circulation for thousands of years, effectively sequestering the carbon by removing it from the ocean food chain. According to Jiao Nianzhi, a microbial ecologist here at Xiamen University, the amount stored is tremendous: “It's really huge. It's comparable to all the carbon dioxide in the air.”

On average, the world's oceans absorb 2% more carbon than they emit each year, forming an important sink in the overall carbon cycle. CO2 is absorbed by the ocean in a number of ways. Some dissolves into the water column, forming carbonic acid (H2CO3) while more enters the seas through the food chain. Green, photosynthesizing plankton converts as much as 60 gigatons of carbon per year into organic carbon—roughly the same amount fixed by land plants and almost 10 times the amount emitted by human activity. But this form of carbon is only stored for a short period of time.

Refusing to Report the Truth

by: Alan Caruba

I attended the first two International Climate Change Conferences when they were held in New York City, but a change of venue to the hometown of The Heartland Institute, Chicago, was enough to discourage someone like myself who no longer enjoys travel of any kind for any reason.

The most recent Heartland conference was held May 16-18 and drew over 800 people from nearly thirty nations. I “attended” electronically, watching the proceedings that were broadcast by Pajamas Media via the Internet.

My friend, Joseph Bast, is the founder The Heartland Institute and, in a recent issue of The Heartlander, he wrote a revealing and insightful article, “There’s Nothing Mainstream About Old Media”, that says much about the state of journalism in America today.

'Climategate', 'Amazongate' - When Will the Truth be Told?

source: telegraph
by: Christopher Booker

What are we to make of the efforts by the political and academic establishments to hold the line against all those revelations, such as "Climategate", which last winter rocked the authority of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change? The most obvious feature of the four official inquiries into the "Climategate" emails (a fifth report is due this week from Sir Muir Russell), is that not one has engaged with the central point at issue. This is the evidence from the emails and other documents confirming that the key IPCC scientists involved had been manipulating data to show temperatures having lately shot up to levels unknown in the past 1,000 years.

A familiar example was the IPCC's "hockey stick" graph, created by the American scientist Michael Mann, but shown by the statistics expert Steve McIntyre to be no more than a statistical artefact. Last week, a second inquiry by his own university cleared Dr Mann, again making no attempt to discuss the central issue. Instead, it merely asserted – while acclaiming him as "among the most respected scientists in his field" – that the techniques used to compile his graph were wholly acceptable. Similarly, McIntyre was startled last week to get a dismissive email from Lord Oxburgh, whose Science Appraisal Panel also avoided the crucial issue in its perfunctory five-page report, bizarrely claiming that "the science was not the subject of our study".

Antarctic Sea Ice Peaks at Third Highest in the Satellite Record

Source: WUWT
by: Anthony Watts

While everyone seems to be watching the Arctic extent with intense interest, it’s bipolar twin continues to make enough ice to keep the global sea ice balance near normal. These images from Cryosphere today provide the details. You won’t see any mention of this in the media. Google News returns no stories about Antarctic Sea Ice Extent.

Countdown to "Solar Climate Change" - 10th to 12th July (give or take a day each way)

source: climate realist
by: CO2Sceptic

As we march forward to the impending TOP RED WARNING of a "Solar Climate Change" for the period 10-12 July (give or take a day each way) from Piers Corbyn at WeatherAction. I will try to use the UK update from the Met Office to show this change. The period, be it only a few days away, will not only be part of Piers Corbyn forecast for the UK, it will ALSO be part of a complex weather world weather event, that could include Earthquakes, Volcanic eruptions, Floods and major Tornadoes. These changes on our world ARE predictable and can be produced by Piers Corbyn months in advance and have NOTHING to do with CO2.

The last time I tried to do this I gave it the tag "North Sea Storm Surge", and you will see that it was NOT the correct weather situation, but was in fact a major flood (a 1 in 100 year event for that location). I fully expect the UK will see something, but will it be a major flood or something else just as bad? However, that's NOT to say the world WILL also see something in the magnitude of at least a 1 in 20 year event. I want the readers of Climate Realists to report this blog to other blog sites in the hope we can show what will take place from a "Solar Climate Change". The events you will see around the world in this time frame will be NOTHING to do with "Man Made" Climate Change.... more to follow soon......meanwhile....
