Finland & Japan Confirm Global Warming Data is not Supported


COMMENT:

Hi Martin,

Being 100% in agreement with you about Climate Change I thought you might be interested in 2 newly released research projects one from Finland and one from Japan: The Finnish researchers conducted by Turku University, state in one among a series of papers, see: (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1907.00165.pdf)

“During the last hundred years, the temperature increased by about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C”. This has been collaborated by a team at Kobe University in Japan, which has furthered the Finnish researchers’ theory: “New evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth’s climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an ‘umbrella effect’,” the just-published study has found, a summary of which has been released in the journal Science Daily.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/07/190703121407.htm

These findings are extremely significant in that both groups have identified the ‘umbrella effect’ as the prime driver of climate warming rather than anthropogenic (human) factors.

I look forward to this information reaching your blog so that other readers can be informed.

Many thanks for all your work which you so generously share and for the huge body of work you have put into Socrates, which is of inestimable value to all those involved in finance and investment.

Thank you.

REPLY: I have spoken with many in the field and all say the same thing. The data is altered and there is just no evidence that human activity has changed the cyclical nature of climate. Pollution is a separate issue which they use to confuse the weak-minded. We all want clean air and water. I lived in London when the busses were still diesel. It was horrible in the summer. I would have to hold my breath when walking near a bus. That does not equate to altering the climate cycles. They cleaned up the air and that no longer is the case. But then stench from the busses back in the ’80s is not responsible for the natural cycles in the climate that date back millions of years.

1177 BC – The Year Civilization Collapsed


QUESTION: I do not believe you have ever commented on Eric Cline’s book 1177BC, the year civilization collapsed. Do you think this is likely what we face or is this different?

WL

ANSWER: There were about eight civilizations that all collapsed with the exception of Egypt post-1250 BC. It was caused by a major shift in climate that led to droughts which resulted in the widespread famine which inspired migrations/invasions. This event of 1177BC was the Bronze Age equivalent to the fall of Rome, for they both were followed by a Dark Age.

Many have attributed this collapse of the Bronze Age to the Sea Peoples, which were most likely northern Mediterranean mass migrants due to the climate getting colder in Europe. Cline has put together a nice assembly of sources, but he missed the climate change. He assumed there was a migration southward. However, we can see the first dip to cold came about 1,800 years ago. We can see that the all-time high temperature was about 3,300 years ago.

The collapse of the Bronze Age was mostly complete by about 1100-1000 BC. Our computer has identified a 1720-year cycle beginning in the Dark Ages with the fall of Rome in 476 AD when the last pretend Emperor reigned (Romulus Augustus (575-476AD)). Our model highlighted the cycle between the Dark Ages of 1720 years which brings us to 1244 BC — right on target for the beginning of the collapse of civilization.

How Civilization Collapses
1) Collapse in centralized government
2) The rich flee and economic growth declines
3) The economy implodes without investment
4) Birth rates decline with population
5) People migrate and abandon urbanization

There were clearly natural disasters and invasions as well as civil unrest. But climate change was probably the primary cause of mass migration. The danger we have today is once again the mass migrations into Europe and the United States. However, if the climate turns sharply colder, we will have famine and that undermines the social structure. We already have the centralization of government & central banks on the ropes. The hunt for taxes will result in the hoarding of wealth and the decline in investment.

The birth rate has been collapsing and the final stage will be abandoning cities because of taxation like Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, etc. Keep in mind the collapse will unfold over the course of probably 51.6 years before you reach rock bottom. It all depends upon the climate looking forward.

Democrats Using Climate to Create Fear Votes


Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang made a wild claim without any evidence whatsoever that “we’re too late” in addressing climate change. Yang even said that people need to be evacuated to higher ground immediately. This is just astonishing to have such nonsense in a presidential election.

Yang admitted that the U.S. is responsible for only 15% of total global emissions. He said that even if the U.S. makes drastic changes in climate policy, it is not going to do much in the grand scheme of things.

“This is going to be a tough truth but we are too late,” Yang said. “We are 10 years too late.”

This is really amazing. So since we will all die in 12 years, eliminate all taxes, and empty all pension funds that have money — we should just party until the end comes.

 

A Technical Study in the Relationships of Solar Flux, Water, Carbon Dioxide and Global Temperatures, June 2019 Data


From the attached report on climate change for June 2019 Data we have the two charts showing how much the global temperature has actually gone up since we started to measure CO2 in the atmosphere? To show this graphically Chart 8 was constructed by plotting CO2 as a percent increase from when it was first measured in 1958, the Black plot, the scale is on the left and it shows CO2 going up a bit over 30.0% from 1958 to June of 2019. That is a very large change as anyone would have to agree.  Now how about temperature, well when we look at the percentage change in temperature from 1958, using Kelvin (which does measure the change in heat), we find that the changes in global temperature (heat) are almost un-measurable. The scale on the right side had to be expanded 10 times (the range is 40 % on the left and 4% on the right) to be able to see the plot in the same chart in any detail. The red plot, starting in 1958, shows that the thermal energy in the earth’s atmosphere increased by .30%; while CO2 has increased by 30.0% which is 100 times that of the increase in temperature. So is there really a meaningful link between them that would give as a major problem? The numbers tell us no there isn’t.

The next chart is Chart 8a which is the same as Chart 8 except for the scales which are the same for both CO2 and Temperature. As you see the increase in energy, heat, is not visually observably in this chart hence the need for the previous chart 8 to show the minuscule increase in thermal energy shown by NASA in relationship to the change in CO2. Based to these trends, determined by excel not me, in 2028 CO2 will be 428 ppm and temperatures will be 15.0o Celsius and in 2038 CO2 will be 458 ppm and temperatures will be 15.6O Celsius. This is what the data shows no matter what the reasons are, so I have no idea how the IPCC gets to predict that the world will end in ten or even twenty years.

The full 37 page report explains how these charts were developed and why using NASA and NOAA data are used without change to prove that The New Green Deal is not required and any attempt to compliment that plan will be a worldwide disaster.

3,000 People Died in French Heatwave of 2003


Back in 2003, about 3,000 people died in France of a heatwave when high temperatures swept across Europe. It was found that nearly 180 people were dying of the heat in hospitals because of the lack of air conditioning. More people want to blame people driving to work rather than investigating the cyclical nature of our climate long-term. The longer this thinking persists, the greater the risk of being totally unprepared for the threat of famine and disease.

Antarctica Use to Have no Ice?


 

Research is surfacing that shows Antarctica may have been without ice during the Medieval Warming Period some refer to as the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) which took place between 1000–1200 AD. Mapping the MCA across the Antarctic region based on the analysis of published palaeotemperature proxy data from 60 sites has revealed something which defies the global warming hysteria. They have used ice core data, temperature proxy records from marine and terrestrial sediment cores, as well as radiocarbon dating. They have discovered that there was in fact warming of Antarctica contrary to the belief that if the ice melted we would all drown.

Back in 1773, the well-known explorer James Cook passed through the Antarctic circle for the first time. Cook officially discovered Antarctica which was generally believed to have been unknown. Later in 1929, a map was discovered in Istanbul that suggested it had been known before and has subsequently raised confirming evidence that Antarctica, at least in the West, was without ice and was noted as being a warm climate.

The chart was originally discovered in Istanbul while the German theologian Gustav Deissmann was cataloging the contents of Istanbul’s Topaki Palace’s library. He came across bundles of maps and charts that had been hidden within piles of disregarded materials. He was apparently stunned after realizing the staggering importance of this find for it was long understood that even Christopher Columbus possessed maps from the ancient world whose last capital was Constantinople – Istanbul. Constantinople fell to the Turks in 1453 and the scholars fled to Europe and to Russia and began teaching lost knowledge. This is what inspired Columbus to set sail in 1492.

Deissmann understood the importance of this map and he immediately brought it to an expert. The map was identified as the Piri Reis Map, taking its name from the medieval cartographer Piri Reis, who signed the bottom. The Piri Reis Map was astonishing for it apparently identified Antarctica at least 200 years before Cook’s discovery.

The Piri Reis Map is a world map compiled in 1513 from military intelligence. Only about one-third of the map has survived displaying the western coasts of Europe and North Africa as well as the coast of Brazil with reasonable accuracy. There are also various Atlantic islands, including the Azores and Canary Islands. Naturally, academics tried to call it a fake because it disturbed their idealized linear timeline of discovery. Nonetheless, Gregory McIntosh, who is a historian of cartography, examined the map in detail in his book “The Piri Reis Map of 1513″ (University of Georgia Press, 2000). McIntosh was able to discover the sources for much of the map in Columbus’s writings. There were some errors, such as the Virgin Islands in two locations which he attributed to the use of multiple maps as sources. Nevertheless, McIntosh traced the accuracy of the depiction of the Antarctic coast. He noted that there were two errors insofar as the coast was shown perhaps hundreds of kilometers north of its proper location and that the Drake Passage was completely missing.

Of course, with Google Maps, people have uncovered what they are claiming are man-made pyramids in Antarctica, claiming that it was once inhabited perhaps 6,000 ago and a polar shift changed the landscape of the world. This is an interesting theory, but it remains just speculation. Sure, something like that could have happened. However, there is no way to prove such a theory at this point in time, leaving it as a plot for a speculative movie.

Still, the Piri Reis Maphas baffled many because it stands in direct contrast with our perception today that the Antarctic is frigid but the notes on the map describe the region as having a warm climate. However, the map corresponds to the Medieval Warm Period that followed the Dark Ages and the Black Plague which wiped out about 50% of the population during the cold period.

However, the extreme swings from heat to extreme cold (Panic Cycles) appear to be indicative of a precursor to Climate Change. Another piece of historical evidence for the Medieval Warming Period which has been ignored by the Global Warming crowd is known as the Hunger Stones. Pictured here is a Hunger Stone from 1616 which has been exposed by the low level of water in the Elbe River in 2018. This is at Decin, in the Czech Republic. Throughout the centuries, there have been these cycles of extreme heat followed by extreme cold. Such events have been recorded when drought has resulted in the low level of water in the Elbe river.

Then there is what many call the Christopher Columbus Map which is undated, but there are clues it was created in 1491: The Smithsonian reported that the map quotes a book published that year, and Christopher Columbus may have consulted the map (or a copy) before his great voyage. When he landed in the Bahamas, he believed he was close to Japan, for this map did not show the Americas. The map, made by a German working in Florence named Henricus Martellus, has been another map which has been ignored by academics.

Scientists at Yale University have been using multispectral imaging on this 15th-century map believed to have been used by Christopher Columbus. They have uncovered hundreds of place names and more than 60 written passages. I have written before that roman-swordRoman artifacts have been discovered also in Canada. This clearly establishes that the ancient Romans may have sailed across the Atlantic long before Columbus or the Vikings. This discovery in Canada has created a storm for it rewrites history. The unquestionable discovery of a Roman sword in Canada is rather stark evidence that history is different from what academics believed. Yet Roman coins have been also discovered in Japan. Then there was the discovery of the Cocaine Mummies from Egypt which have confirmed there was trade between Africa and South America, although it could have been through the Pacific to India and off to Egypt.

Only two historical cases of pre-Columbian contact are widely accepted among the scientific mainstream. They have accepted maritime explorations by Norse peoples from Scandinavia during the late 10th century which led to the Norse colonization of Greenland and of L’Anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland which predate Columbus’ arrival in the Americas by some 500 years.

From China, we have historical evidence that the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius sent a diplomat envoy to establish contact with China, which they were long trading with through intermediaries on what was called the Silk Road. The history of Rome that it claimed to rule the world (orbis terrarum) stood at the opposite end of the globe from the strikingly similar Han Dynasty (206BC-220 AD) in China, which also claimed to have ruled the world (tianxia). There is the History Book for Tang-Dynasty in China covering the period 618-907 AD. Yet the text mentions 17 times what appears to be the Roman Empire. It also describes an envoy that was sent by the Roman Emperor to China. The Roman Emperor was recorded to have been “Anton.” The account of such an envoy who visited the older Han Dynasty predates the Venetian traveler Marco Polo (1254-1325) by more than 1,000 years. This envoy has been attributed to 166 AD during the reign of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121-180 AD). It is the death of Marcus Aurelius that has marked the peak in the Roman Empire and the turning point that begins the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire where the monetary system collapses just 72 years thereafter. This envoy established diplomatic contact at the peak in the Roman Empire from which a disastrous decline begins. Any political-economic aspirations to further such a relationship would then die with Marcus Aurelius. Yet also, both empires would suffer the same fate of barbarian invasions. The Han Dynasty falls in 220 AD from which emerges the chaotic period known as the Three Kingdoms (220-280 AD ) – the division of the once unified Chinese Empire.

The Minoan society began the Bronze Age. To make bronze, they needed tin. Low and behold, the Minoans traded with the British of Stonehenge Age period prior to 1650 BC, sailing into the Atlantic and they too must have created maps of the areas they sailed to. It was essential to sail into the Atlantic for trade giving birth to the Bronze Age.

The Minoans were perhaps the first International Economy. They traded far and wide even with Britain seeking tin. Their civilization was of the Bronze Age rising civilization that arose on the island of Crete and flourished from approximately the 27th century BC to the 15th century BC. Their trading range and colonization extended to Spain, Egypt, Israel (Canaan), Syria (Levantine), Greece, Rhodes, and of course to Turkey (Anatolia). Many other cultures referred to them as the people from the islands in the middle of the sea. However, the Minoans had no mineral deposits. They lacked gold as well as silver or even the ability to produce large mining of copper. What has survived are examples of copper ingots that served as MONEY in trade.

The fall of the Minoan Civilization coincided with the eruption of Thera (today it is known as Santorini). This destroyed their ships and commerce and allowed the barbarians, then the Greeks from Mycenae, to plunder their society and also that of Troy before collapsing into a Dark Age due to climate change and global cooling. What is very clear is that there must have been maps which long predated the Piri Reis Map which apparently relied on numerous maps which had previously existed.

The latest is again they assumed the ice will all melt and the seas level will rise by 25 meters. They claim that if emissions don’t start to fall until 2030 and the world does not abide by the 2015 Paris Agreement, where anyone who disagreed was not allowed to present anything or speak, then the sea level will rise by 25 meters by 2050. This all opinion and no proof or historical evidence has ever been presented to show what would happen.

Has the Ice in the Arctic Ever Melted Before?


QUESTION: Martin,
Been reading you for years, starting when the SDNY wrongly jailed you and basically destroyed your constitutional rights, s/b a movie… what a great service you do for human kind…hope some of it sticks..lucky for all readers we have you for now to help us face the future,”thank you” !!!
Our question concerns climate change, all the nay-sayers who will not listen to any reasonable argument against their view…The big question that gets thrown at me all the time is: “has the artic ever melted before and has it happened several times over the course of time?
Thank you for all you do,
CL

ANSWER: The North Sea Passage opened in 1817 after the Little Ice Age. From a cyclical perspective, the Arctic freezes and then opens. Before the Little Ice Age, there is evidence that Norwegian Vikings sailed as far north and west as Ellesmere Island, Skraeling Island, and Ruin Island for hunting expeditions and trading with the Inuit and people. Modern explorers attempted to find a passage during the 15th century , and it was attempted again during the 19th and 20th centuries. We have this account from 1817 which discusses how the ice has melted to allow ships to pass and therefore proves that this is cyclical and the melting of ice has nothing to do with human use of fossil fuels.

THE ARCTIC IS MELTING

“It will without doubt have come to your Lordship’s knowledge that a considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the Circumpolar Regions, by which the severity of the cold that has for centuries past enclosed the seas in the high northern latitudes in an impenetrable barrier of ice has been during the last two years, greatly abated….

(see additional*)

….. this affords ample proof that new sources of warmth have been opened and give us leave to hope that the Arctic Seas may at this time be more accessible than they have been for centuries past, and that discoveries may now be made in them not only interesting to the advancement of science but also to the future intercourse of mankind and the commerce of distant nations.” A request was made for the Royal Society to assemble an expedition to go and investigate.

Humans Occupy Less Than 3% of the Surface of the Earth


Now the save the planet crew is demanding that 50% of all landmass be void of humans. The real fact is that 95% of the world’s population lives on less than 10% of the land. Obviously, these people really do not understand math. Most of the planet’s surface is covered in water in the form of oceans. The remaining landmass on Earth amounts to approximately 29% of the surface. Of this remaining 29%, deserts of all types constitute an estimated 33% or one-third of Earth’s total landmass. That means humans occupy less than 3% of the surface of the planet.

It is just curious how these people think we even possess the capability to change the climate. Now they want laws that say we cannot occupy 50% of the landmass when we only occupy less than 3%. I’m not sure if they flunked math class.
