    Where on earth would you expect to see the greatest increase in temperature as a result of greenhouse gas-induced global warming? How about one of the colder places on the planet? Like Antarctica. Temperatures there have been routinely measured at the Faraday/Vernadsky station on the Antarctic Peninsula ever since February of 1947; and they reveal a warming of […]

  • Global Warming Standstill Not Due To Volcanoes

    • The Hockey Stick

    A paper published today in Atmospheric Science Letters effectively rules out volcanoes as the main cause of the ‘pause’ in global warming over the past 17 years. According to the authors, “We deduce a global mean cooling of around −0.02 to −0.03 K over the period 2008–2012. Thus while these eruptions do cause a cooling of the Earth and may […]

    Greenland’s shrunken ice sheet is nothing new, scientists say — it was even smaller more than 3,000 years ago, as small as any time in recent history. A new technique for interpreting the Arctic fossil record has allowed a determination of when glaciers were smaller than they are today, the researchers said. While there are […]

    In 2007, a team of Met Office scientists predicted there would be 0.3°C warming during 2004-2014. This prediction has turned out to be wrong.  We are almost into 2014 and there has been no warming at all since 2004. Smith et al (2007): 0.3°C in 10 years In 2007, a team of climate scientists from the UK […]
