Dr. Norman Page: The CO2 Derangement Syndrome - the Millennial Turning Point and the Coming Cooling'

A very large majority of establishment academic climate scientists have succumbed to a virulent infectious disease - the CO2 Derangement Syndrome. Those afflicted by this syndrome present with a spectrum of symptoms .The first is an almost total inability to recognize the most obvious Millennial and 60 year emergent patterns which are trivially obvious in solar activity and global temperature…

Dr. Norman Page: The Millennial Turning Point - Solar Activity and the Coming Cooling

E-Mails to GWPF and PROFESSOR ZHARKOVADr Norman Page Houston Benny Peiser/ Dr Zharkova Zharkova et al 2015 DOI:10.10381/srep15683 says " Dynamo waves are found generated with close frequencies whose interaction leads to beating effects responsible for the grand cycles (350-400 years) superimposed on a standard 22 year cycle. This approach opens a new era in investigation and confident…

Climate models surely are unable to make useful forecasts. A different forecasting paradigm is required.The hadsst3 data shows global SST temperatures are now below the pre El Nino trend.

Dr. Norman Page: Global SST data confirms cooling is on the way.

THE COMING COOLING.The latest hadsst3 data shows global sst temperatures are now below the pre El Nino trend. I see that reality is beginning to intrude upon the dangerous global warming team. They say ” it is plausible, if not likely, that the next 10 years of global temperature change will leave an impression of a ‘global warming hiatus’.”Climate is controlled by natural cycles.…

Climate is controlled by natural cycles. Earth is just past the 2003+/- peak of a millennial cycle and the current cooling trend will likely continue until the next Little Ice Age minimum at about 2650.See the Energy and Environment paper at an earlier accessible blog version at

From Dr Norman PageHouston Blog Professor BelcherThere has been no net warming since 1997 with CO2 up over 8%, The warming trend peaked in about 2003 and the earth has been cooling slightly for the last 10 years .

Dr. Norman Page: Oklahoma Tornadoes and Sandy type Hurricanes reflect Global Cooling not Warming.

Most climate warming alarmists have recently realised that it is now counterproductive to attribute every and all extreme weather events ( even cold snowy winters) to global warming and try to project a judicious objectivity by applying the cliche "weather isn't climate" to both sides of the climate wars. In fact weather is an almost instantaneous slice through the climate space- time phase…

Dr. Norman Page: Open Request for Simple Predictions from James Hansen and Kevin Trenberth

Over the last several years it has become increasingly clear that the earth is not warming according to the IPCC model predictions (projections ) . Both Hansen and Trenberth recognise the problem.Hansen suggests that Chinese pollution is counter balancing the expected surface warming and that this surface warming pause might continue for several decades to come.By contrast Trenberth suggests…

There has been no net warming since 1997 with CO2 up 8+%. The earth entered a cooling trend in about 2003 which is likely to last 30 years and maybe for hundreds of years beyond that.The IPCC climate models on which the entire CO2 phobia depends were and are so badly structured as to be inherently useless for temperature prediction.
