• Judith Curry On The Cloud-Climate Conundrum

    • Judith Curry, Climate Etc

    Four new papers remind us of the very large uncertainties surrounding cloud-climate feedbacks. CERN CERN’s CLOUD Experiment recently published three new papers: * Ion induced nucleation of pure biogenic particles * The role of low-volatility organic compounds in initial particle growth in the atmosphere * New particle formation in the free troposphere: A question of chemistry […]

  • CERN Results Strengthen Svensmark’s Cosmic Ray-Climate Theory

    • Pierre Gosselin, No Tricks Zone

    Looking at the English-language media, one might be led to think that the latest CERN experimental results show that trees alone dominate cloud formation, by supplying the necessary cloud seeding medium. Little reference is made to cosmic rays acting as the cloud formation modulator, initiating the cloud seeding process, as hypothesized by Henrik Svensmark. Lubos […]

    That putative polar bear hybrid shot in Arviat last week has been sent for DNA testing. Just out from NunatsiaqOnline (24 May 2016): Nunavut biologist sends possible “grolar” bear DNA for analysis: Unusual bear killed in Arviat could just be a blonde grizzly bear Additional details confirm the animal shot was a female, which could […]

    • Bob Tisdale, Watts Up With That

    The sea surface temperature anomalies of the NINO3.4 region of the equatorial Pacific are bordered by the coordinates of 5S-5N, 170W-120W.  They are used by NOAA and other meteorological agencies to define when an El Niño event is taking place.  According to the most-recent weekly satellite-enhanced data, the temperature anomalies for that region have dropped […]

    Ed Hawkins’s Polar Plot animation of warming had a big impact. So I thought I would try the same trick with the 200,000 year record of temperature anomalies from Antarctica measured by the EPICA ice core data. At its peak the Eemian was 3C warmer than the Holocene. The Epica temperature data for last 200k years. The first rapid warming is […]

  • Green Hype Doubt: Suppliers Question Tesla’s Goals For Model 3 Output

    • Date: 20/05/16
    • Reuters

    Tesla Motors Inc has surprised parts makers with plans to move up the launch of high-volume production of its Model 3 to 2018, two years earlier than planned – an acceleration that supplier executives and industry consultants said would be difficult to achieve and potentially costly. In the past three months, Tesla has told suppliers […]

  • Doug Hoffman: Science Death Spiral?

    • Date: 20/05/16
    • Doug L Hoffman, The Resilient Earth

    The standards of science have been greatly degraded in modern times, to the point that many if not most scientific claims are suspect. Illustration by David Parkins/Nature Having brought mankind so far, has traditional science finally outlived its usefulness? Many seem to think so, finding the rules of the scientific method—the strict guidelines a researcher […]

    About twenty countries around the world are dependent on a single number: the price of oil. Some, primarily Persian Gulf states, live entirely off their oil and gas wealth. They rely on crude oil, natural gas and petroleum products for 50 percent of their Gross Domestic Product and for 70-plus percent of their budget revenue. […]
