Record Fraud From NOAA In September

Written by Tony Heller

NOAA says that Earth was red hot in September, with many places being the hottest ever!

Only problem is, they don’t have thermometers on about half of the land surface, and many of their record temperatures are fake. Grey areas below represent missing data.


Note the record hot temperatures reported in Yemen, Oman, Central African Republic, South Sudan and The Congo.

They don’t have any thermometers in those regions. The claimed record temperatures are completely fake.



Satellite temperatures show that NOAA’s record hot Africa was actually just about normal in September.

Claims of record heat from NASA and NOAA are completely fraudulent, and are being made for political purposes. They have nothing to do with with climate or science.

New Research Finds Massive Methane Plumes Off U.S. West Coast

Written by James Edward Kamis

Absolutely stunning new research by the University of Washington (et al) confirms that 500 newly discovered deep ocean seafloor methane gas seeps are flowing massive amounts of this powerful greenhouse gas into the overlying ocean along the entire coast of Oregon, Washington, and California. Research scientists involved in this project indicate that this very large continuously flowing plume of methane gas is likely making its way up through the ocean water column and into Earth’s atmosphere. Furthermore, they state that pending additional analysis, climate scientists may need to “adjust” climate models (see quotes below). fault

Meteorology Professor To National Weather Service: You Suck!

Written by Eric Owens

A University of Washington atmospheric sciences and meteorology professor is making headlines this week for observing how bad the federal government sucks at making accurate weather predictions.

The professor, Cliff Mass of the University of Washington, says that weather forecasting in the United States is woefully inaccurate — and laughably technologically inferior — compared to both the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts and the UKMET model, which is purely British.

Just this month, Mass has pointed to Hurricane Matthew and a Seattle area windstorm as examples of the U.S. National Weather Service’s taxpayer-funded awfulness.

The National Weather Service dramatically oversold last weekend’s Seattle windstorm as the possible equivalent of a cataclysmic 1962 extratropical cyclone that Pacific Northwest old timers are still talking about.

UN censor bans Skeptical reporters from Climate Conference

Written by Ezra Levant,

As we reported earlier this week, a censor at the UN named Nick Nuttall has refused The Rebel’s request for official media accreditation, so we can cover the climate summit in Marrakech, Morocco.

As this is a first for The Rebel: We’ve decided to take this episode of “The Ezra Levant Show” and make it available for free.

Three thousand other journalists have been approved, but we’ve been blacklisted.


WATCH as Nick Nuttall explains why — not to us and our lawyers or Canada’s professional journalist associations, all of whom have written him formal letters in protest.

No, Nuttall went on the CBC to make his case that The Rebel is a “one person” enterprise, and furthermore, we’re “extremist.”

Even the CBC host wasn’t buying it!

Cyber War: Ransomware, election bots and Artificial Intelligence

Written by PSI staff

Friday 21 October 2016 witnessed millions of internet users in the United States suffering hours of disrupted service coming at a time of rising threats and counter threats of international cyber wars. Sites attacked included Reddit, Twitter, Etsy, Github, Soundcloud, Spotify as well as the New York Times, Paypal, Pinterest and Tumblr, and some cable firms.


Reuters was quick to report that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were both investigating. According to

“The disruptions come at a time of unprecedented fears about the cyber threat in the United States, where hackers have breached political organizations and election agencies.

Homeland Security last week issued a warning about a powerful new approach for blocking access to websites – hackers infecting routers, printers, smart TVs and other connected devices with malware that turns them into “bot” armies that overwhelm website servers in distributed denial of service attacks. Dyn said it had resolved one attack, which disrupted operations for about two hours, but disclosed a second attack a few hours later that was causing further disruptions.”

Researchers study vast carbon residue of ocean life

Written by

The oceans hold a vast reservoir – 700 billion tons – of carbon, dissolved in seawater as organic matter, often surviving for thousands of years after being produced by ocean life. Yet, little is known about how it is produced, or how it’s being impacted by the many changes happening in the ocean.

Think of dissolved organic carbon, or DOC, in the ocean as tree leaves and other dead organic matter falling to the forest ground – a portion of this natural carbon sustains life while the remainder remains hidden in the soils, being sequestered for many years. As is true in the forests, this vital, residual carbon reservoir is necessary to sustain life in the ocean, and to sequester vast amounts of carbon in its great depths. graphs

To better understand this important pool of ocean carbon, researchers at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science used data collected over the past 15 years on several international scientific cruises to map the distribution of this material in the Atlantic Ocean. From the analysis, they found that this major basin contributes one third of the global ocean net production of dissolved organic carbon.

“Carbon is involved in all aspects of our life,” said Dennis Hansell, UM Rosenstiel School professor of ocean sciences and coauthor of the study.

“We need to understand the carbon cycle on Earth especially as we add more from the burning of fossil fuels.”

Dissolved organic carbon is the primary food source at the base of the marine food chain. It is produced by phytoplankton during photosynthesis, and it is mostly consumed by microbial life. The remainder that is not consumed by microbes accumulates in the ocean.

The researchers discovered that the production of dissolved organic carbon at the ocean’s surface could be accurately predicted by measuring the amount of nutrients arriving into the euphotic, or sunlit, zone.

The nutrients arrive there mostly by winter mixing and upwelling, and in turn support the growth of ocean plant life. From the arrival of nutrients to the surface ocean, they estimated the resulting plant growth and the production of residue, the DOC, from that growth. From those estimates, they built a map of DOC at the surface of the entire Atlantic Ocean.

“In our work, we found that the production of dissolved organic carbon depends on the quantity of nutrients that reach the euphotic zone from deeper layers,” said Cristina Romera-Castillo, a former postdoctoral researcher at the UM Rosenstiel School and lead author of the study. “In future scenarios, how climate change will affect the nutrient arrival to the surface ocean will determine the inventory of dissolved organic carbon in the ocean.”

This inventory in turn affects the cycling of carbon on Earth, which has important roles in climate.

Study: Natural Gas Could Provide $50 Billion in Health Benefits

Written by Jack Anderson

A cross-disciplinary team of researchers at Carnegie Mellon University recently released a peer-reviewed study finding significant health and climate benefits as a result of the increased use natural gas for electricity generation.

In fact, the Carnegie Mellon team estimates that continuing to increase natural gas usage could provide as much as $20 to $50 billion in healthcare cost savings:

“The human health benefits of such a switch are substantial: SO2 emissions are reduced from the baseline (MATS (Mercury and Air Toxics Standard) retrofits by 2016) by more than 90%, and NOX emissions by more than 60%, reducing total national annual health damages by $20 to $50 billion annually.”

Improving public health should be a priority, because “health effects, if valued at $6 million per statistical life, constitute 94%” of the economic costs of air pollution associated with energy generation in the US, according to the researchers.

As the below chart shows, most of the public health savings would occur in the Ohio River Valley and southeastern US, where there are dense populations of Americans living downwind of higher-emission, non-natural gas power plants.

Emissions in the USA

According to Carnegie Mellon’s data, power plants using natural gas produce less sulfur dioxide(SO2) and nitrous oxides (NOx) into the atmosphere when burned. SO2 can­ contribute to acid rain and smog, the clouds that obscure metropolitan areas under clouds of pollutants. Sulfur dioxide is also known to be particularly harmful and potentially life-threatening. Nitrous oxide compounds are known to increase risks of respiratory illnesses and can cause acid rain. Natural gas also produces far less particulate matter, which can lead to health problems if inhaled.

Emissions Data


That’s not the only good news in the report. The researchers also expect that a widespread transition towards natural gas electricity generation would reduce greenhouse gas emissions drastically.

The researchers found that natural gas power plants produce 50-67 percent less CO2 and noted that natural gas usage has the potential to decrease overall methane (CH4) emissions, “Assuming 3% fugitive CH4 emissions, switching… would reduce the power sector’s contribution to warming by 20% in 2040.” As EID has noted many times, study after study has shown that fugitive methane emission from natural gas production are around 1.2 to 1.6 percent – which is well below the 3 percent threshold for natural gas to have significant climate benefits.

Altogether, the potential decreases in greenhouse gases and air pollution make it impossible to deny the benefits of natural gas production. It is the responsible choice from an environmental perspective and offers significant public health benefits for all Americans.

Alarmist Scientists Hide Good News! Planet is Greener!

Written by James Delingpole

Alarmist scientists are trying to cover up the good news that rising CO2 levels are making the planet turn greener. And that even includes one of the scientists who made the discovery in the first place.

The discovery was first announced in 2012 in a lecture by Professor Ryanga Myneni of the University of Boston.

Rising CO2 levels are causing the planet to get greener, Myneni revealed. In the last 30 years, he estimated, the planet’s greenery has increased by 14 per cent. About half of this, he calculated, was a direct result of increased carbon dioxide levels, rather than of other factors like warmth, irrigation or fertilisers. And the area covered is vast:  as Myneni’s co-author Zaichun Zhu, of Beijing University, puts it, it’s equivalent to adding a green continent twice the size of mainland USA.

New Study: Human Air Pollution: Up in Asia, Africa; Down Europe, US

Written by Zbigniew Klimont, Kaarle Kupiainen et al.

Abstract. This paper presents the first comprehensive assessment of historical (1990–2010) global anthropogenic particulate matter (PM) emissions including consistent and harmonized calculation of mass-based size distribution (PM1, PM2.5, PM10) as well as primary carbonaceous aerosols including black carbon (BC) and organic carbon (OC).


The estimates were developed with the integrated assessment model GAINS, where source- and region-specific technology characteristics are explicitly included. This assessment includes a number of previously unaccounted or often misallocated emission sources, i.e., kerosene lamps, gas flaring, diesel generators, trash burning; some of them were reported in the past for selected regions or in the context of a particular pollutant or sector but not included as part of a total estimate.

“Ice Age within 15 Years!” Say Russian Scientists

Written by Sean Martin

Earth is heading towards another ice age as solar magnetic activity is set to drop by up to 60 per cent in the next 15 years.

Experts say that solar activity as low as it currently is has not been seen since the mini-ice age that took place between 1645 and 1715 – a period known as the Maunder Minimum where the entire Thames froze over.

A new model has allowed experts to predict solar activity with more accuracy than ever before and it suggests that magnetic activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040.


The model looks at the Sun’s ’11-year heartbeat’ – the period it takes for magnetic activity to fluctuate. This cycle was first discovered some 173 years ago.

Climate Conspiracy: “UN blacklisting our journalists!”

Written by Ezra Levant

The United Nations has refused to accredit three of our journalists, blacklisting us from covering the upcoming global warming conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

The three banned journalists are full-time professionals: Sheila Gunn Reid, our Alberta bureau chief and best-selling author; and Meaghan MacSween, a producer, formerly with Global News and Sun News Network; and Alex Jones, our cameraman and editor, also formerly of Sun News Network.

These are total pros, with years of journalistic experience amongst them.

Here’s the UN’s one-line excuse: we are “advocacy journalists”, a term they do not define and has not to our knowledge been used by the UN before. They don’t even have the courage to sign their mealy-mouthed rejection letter.


Perhaps the UN means “opinion journalists”. But opinion journalism is a legitimate type of journalism, and comprised a large proportion of the 3,000 journalists who covered last year’s UN global warming conference in France, and will cover this year’s in Morocco.

We’re not being kept out because we have an opinion. We’re being kept out because they think we have the wrong opinion.

They’ve just made up the excuse. Because if we were indeed being blacklisted because we hold a point of view, how can the UN approve journalists who are literally paid propagandists for authoritarian regimes, like China’s Xinhua and CCTV, and even Qatar’s Al Jazeera and Russia’s RT?

Many independent western media have an explicit advocacy orientation too, especially on the subject of global warming, including online outlets like Vice, Huffington Post and Buzzfeed.

The UN even welcomes global warming lobby groups, including “community organizers” posing as journalists. Greenpeace-style blogs, like Canada’s own DeSmog Blog attend in full advocacy mode, as well as other small websites like The Tyee and the Vancouver Observer, both supported by Tides.

And that’s all fine – the United Nations’ own Declaration of Human Rights says “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

The UN is breaking its own rules by denying us those same rights. That’s pretty much how they roll over there — after all, it’s an organization where Russia and China have a veto at the security council, and where dictatorships like Saudi Arabia sit on the human rights council. So they’re treating us like they’d treat journalists in Iran or Cuba.

This has happened before. Earlier this year, when Sheila went to a press conference in Edmonton with Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley, she was met by an armed sheriff blocking her from the Alberta Legislature. It was a scandal, and Notley backed down only in the face of national condemnation.

But Notley, although she’s a bully, still has to operate in a democracy. But the UN bureaucrats who have blacklisted us are anonymous. And they don’t have to worry about stuffy things like democratic accountability. The UN has not even replied to our lawyer’s polite requests for an explanation. Three non-partisan journalism NGOs – PEN Canada, The Canadian Association of Journalists and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression – have each written letters to the UN in support of our application. They have been ignored as well.



We need your help. Please sign our petition to pressure the UN into reconsidering.

But we’re going to send our journalists to Marrakech no matter what. Even if we have to stand outside and shout questions at the elites as they arrive in their fossil-fuel-burning limousines. If you’re in a position to help defray our travel costs, please click here to chip in. Unlike the state broadcasters the UN prefers, we’re 100% independent.

Thanks for your support. And please post our website address, as your Facebook status, to help spread the word!
