Weather Channel Co-Founder: Efforts to Prove Global Warming Have ‘Failed’ (Truth Revolt, Oct 22, 2014):

“Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant greenhouse gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed.”

The co-founder of the Weather Channel and climate expert John Coleman recently wrote an open letter directly attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, arguing that attempts to prove man-made climate change “have failed” and that political agendas rather than science are now driving the “scientific” conversation.

Here’s an excerpt of from the open letter (via Express News):

Up To 80 cm Of Snow This Week In Switzerland

Up to 80cm of snow this week in Switzerland (Ice Age Now, Oct 26, 2014):

80 cm is 31½ inches – That’s thigh-deep.


The snow fell down to 1000m (which is close to the valley floor in many Swiss regions), but due to the early time of the season, the warmth of the ground means that melting from below took place up to 2000m.

  • Urner Alpen, Glarner Alpen and Nordbunden: 60 to 80 cm
  • remainder of the northern Alps from the Berner Oberland to Liechtenstein, Mittelbunden and the Lower Engadin valley: 30 to 60 cm
  • other regions up to 30 cm, but the extreme south remains precipitation free

After the snowfall ended, freezing levels rose to 3400m, which means that this snowfall, as is normal in late October, will mostly melt way, with only the higher deposits benefitting from freeze-thaw cycles to create a permanent snowbase.

Glaciers on K-2, the 2nd highest peak on Earth,  are growing (Ice Age Now, Oct 21, 2014):

Scientists struggle to explain it (Look out! Here comes the spin!)


In the mountainous Karakoram region of Asia the glaciers aren’t melting. If anything, some are expanding, says this article on LiveScience.

“It’s been a source of controversy that these glaciers haven’t been changing while other glaciers in the world have,” said study researcher Sarah Kapnick, a postdoctoral researcher in atmospheric and ocean sciences at Princeton University.

Headlined ” Ice could cause grief for Antarctic vessels,” this story tries to blame global warming for the record sea-ice around Antarctica.  

“As the icebreaker Aurora Australis sets off from Hobart on its maiden mission for the summer season, the bright orange vessel has been stocked with extra supplies in case of hold-ups.

“For the first time since satellite records began in 1979 Antarctic sea ice has passed the 20 million square kilometre mark, voyage manager Robb Clifton says.
