• Climate Models Run Too Hot: Settled Science Unsettled?

    • Date: 21/09/17
    • Ron Bailey, Reason Onlein

    Climate computer model projections of future man-made warming due to human emissions of carbon dioxide are running too hot, says a fascinating new study in Nature Geoscience. Consequently, researchers reckon that humanity has more time to prevent dangerous future climate change than had been suggested earlier by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This is really good […]

  • Are Doomsday Scenarios Best Seen As Failed Predictions Or Political Detonators?

    • Date: 16/09/17
    • Tor H Aase, The Geographical Journal of Nepal

    The so-called ‘Theory of Himalayan Environmental Degradation’ predicted an environmental collapse by the end of last millennium, threatening the life of millions of people. Fortunately, the all-encompassing crisis did not materialize. The article shows that the ‘Theory’ failed to take into account the vast ecological variation in Himalaya and thus generalized its contentions to the […]

    Yesterday, membership of the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee was announced:               Previously, there were 11 members of the committee, and apparently there will be three more appointments, so the announcement seems to have been somewhat botched. The identity politics brigade sprang into action following this announcement, see for example Cambridge […]

    • Watts Up With That

    While this won’t be of much comfort for those that are squarely in it’s path right now, it is a small bit of good news. Dr. Philip Klotzbach has compiled rankings of both hurricane Irma and Harvey when they made landfall. Compared to the 1935 Labor Day storm, Irma is a distant 7th, tied with the 1928 […]

  • Don’t Blame Hurricanes Harvey And Irma On Global Warming

    • Date: 09/09/17
    • Alan Reynolds, Newsweek

    Yes, warmer ocean temperatures would logically seem to correlate with more or stronger hurricanes, but as shown below, they don’t. “ Harvey Is What Climate Change Looks Like : It’s time to open our eyes and prepare for the world that’s coming.” That August 28 Politico article by Slate weatherman Eric Holthaus was one of many trying too hard to blame […]

  • Despite Relatively Cool Atlantic Waters Irma Formed Into Major Hurricane: Why?

    • Date: 09/09/17
    • Judith Curry, Climate Etc.

Irma became a hurricane on 8/31.  CFAN’s calibrated track probabilities are shown below for ECMWF (top) and NOAA GEFS […]

  • James Lovelock On ‘Wicked’ Renewables And Why He Changed His Mind On Climate Change

    • Date: 07/09/17
    • James Delingpole, The Spectator

    Environmentalism has gone too far; renewable energy is a disaster; scares about pesticides and chemicals are horribly overdone; no, the planet is not going to end any time soon; and, by the way, the answer is nuclear… This isn’t me speaking, but the views of an environmentalist so learned, distinguished and influential you could call […]
