    • Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller

    A new study using an expensive climate supercomputer to predict the risk of record-breaking rainfall in southeast England is no better than “using a piece of paper,” according to critics. “The Met Offices’s model-based rainfall forecasts have not stood up to empirical tests and do not seem to give better advice than observational records,” Dr. […]

    The Met Offices’s model-based rainfall forecasts have not stood up to empirical tests, and do not seem to give better advice than observational records. In July this year, scientists from the UK Meteorological Office released a new study estimating the risk of UK regions suffering a record-breaking monthly rainfall between the months of October and March.

    The dominant climate cycles have persisted for a long time: “This allows to predict cooling until 2070 AD.” In a just published study in The Open Atmospheric Science Journal here, German scientists Horst-Joachim Lüdecke and Carl-Otto Weiss have used a large number of temperature proxies worldwide to construct a global temperature mean over the last 2000 years, dubbed G7, in order […]

    “There is no evidence indicating a termination of the recent warming hiatus in eastern China. The question of when the accelerated warming trend will resume needs to be answered by climate model prediction.”   Persisting and strong warming hiatus over eastern China during the past two decades Yang Chen and Panmao Zhai, State Key Laboratory of […]

    The Bureau of Meteorology has ordered a full review of temperature recording equipment and procedures after the peak weather agency was caught tampering with cold winter temperature logs in at least two locations. Scientist Jennifer Marohasy and amateur meteorologist Lance Pidgeon at the Goulburn airport weather station that recorded minus 10.4C on July 2. Picture: […]

  • ‘Scientists Are Mostly Wrong’: Or Why Published Research Is Untrustworthy

    “The attitude that scientists are always right should be changed; they are most often wrong. Instead of trying to make cosmetic changes to their results, they should openly and frankly recognize the weakness of the results.” As much as 90% of the published medical information is flawed according to John Ioannidis, one of the true […]

  • Solar Activity Linked To Periodic Climate Change During The Holocene

    • Date: 28/07/17
    • Mohammed Allan et al., Climate of the Past, 11 July 2017

    Several intervals of significant rapid climate change were detected during the Holocene at 10.3, 9.3-9.5, around 8.2, 6.4-6.2, 4.7-4.5, and around 2.7 ka BP. Those intervals are similar to the cold events evidenced in different natural paleoclimate archivers, suggesting common climate forcing mechanisms related to changes in solar irradiance. Abstract. We present a decadal-centennial scale […]

  • Science Scare of the Week: Spermpocalypse Now

    • Date: 27/07/17
    • Reason Online & Science Media Centre

    Are human beings about to become extinct due to falling sperm counts? The BBC headline blares, “Sperm count drop ‘could make humans extinct’.”   The story is based on a new systematic review and meta-regression analysis of recent trends in both sperm concentration and total sperm count. The study, published in Human Reproduction Update, reports “a significant […]
