    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    You may have seen stories that this summer has been unusually wet in the UK. The truth is rather more mundane. Overall, this summer’s rainfall of 272mm has only been slightly above the long term average of 244mm, and ranks an unremarkable 31st wettest since 1910. The wettest summer on record was in 1912. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate/uk/summaries/datasets […]

    The long-awaited (and long overdue) PAGES2K synthesis of 57 high-resolution ocean sediment series (OCEAN2K) was published a couple of weeks ago (see here here). Co-author Michael Evans’ announcement made the results sound like the latest and perhaps most dramatic Hockey Stick yet: Today, the Earth is warming about 20 times faster than it cooled during the past 1,800 […]
