Hundreds of papers are being published that show that the “anthropogenic climate change” paradigm is incorrect, at least in its strong forms. But I think that the following paper is rather cute because it’s so careful and it discusses one of the most obvious symptoms of “global warming” – the melting glaciers.

in The Cryosphere, a peer-reviewed journal about the frozen things on Earth. The paper was originally submitted as a “discussion paper” in February. It went through a peer review with 3 referees who looked at the paper rather carefully, wrote detailed reviews, and caught some missing commas, among other things. You may see the history of the paper if you click at the title above.

Swiss - Info - GWPF - Benny - Peiser

As summarized at Swiss Info (hat tip: GWPF of Benny Peiser), Sigl et al. looked at the ice core from the Fiescherhorn glacier between Bern and Valais and analyzed the age of soot particles (technically refractory black carbon, rBC). They could analyze how much of the glacier was melted at various points.

Now, the prediction by the “anthropogenic climate change” would be that the melting Alpine glaciers are due to the industrial activity. But that activity was exploding sometime in the 19th century and it only began to grow detectably above the natural background around 1875.

Authors - % - Century - % - Century

However, these authors found that in 1875, 75% of the 19th century, 80% of the 19th century glacier melt had already been completed.

It means that the average rate of melting was actually higher between 1800-1875, in the pre-major-industrialization era, than between 1875-1900. The authors have analyzed the quantities since 1741 – and some melting could have been there from the beginning.

Beginning - Industrialization - Škoda - Works - Hometown

Now, 1875 is pretty clearly a reasonable beginning of the major industrialization. The Škoda Works was founded in my hometown of Pilsen in 1859 (see the picture at the top) –...
