    The recent trend of increasing Antarctic sea ice extent — seemingly at odds with climate model projections — can largely be explained by a natural climate fluctuation, according to a new study led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). On Sept. 19, 2014, the five-day average of Antarctic sea ice extent exceeded 20 […]

    • Retraction Watch

    A small survey of UK academics suggests misconduct such as faking data and plagiarism is occurring surprisingly often. The survey — of 215 UK academics — estimated that 1 in 7 had plagiarized from someone else’s work, and nearly 1 in 5 had fabricated data. Here’s how Joanna Williams and David Roberts at the University of Kent […]

    The sun is in the currently in its quietest period for more than a century. Astronomers say this isn’t unusual, and solar activity waxes and wanes in 11-year cycles, and we’re currently in Cycle 24, which began in 2008. However, if the current trend continues, then the Earth could be headed for a ‘mini ice […]

  • Alarmists Wrong Again! ‘Grolar’ Bear Hybrid Was Actually Just A Blonde Grizzly Bear

    For weeks, environmentalists claimed a supposed polar bear-grizzly bear hybrid that was harvested in the Canadian Arctic was proof global warming was pushing polar bears far enough south to mate with grizzlies. As it turns out, that narrative is totally false. The results of a DNA test done on the bear revealed it was just […]

    • GWPF Climate Briefing

    A new survey of 651 climate scientists’s opinion has been carried out by Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch.

  • Study Finds More Evidence ‘Urban Heat Islands’ Are Warming Up Weather Stations

    • Date: 20/06/16
    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    A new study examining how energy use can influence local climates found temperature changes in Britain and Japan are better explained by energy use than by climate models. “Our results are strong evidence that changes in energy consumption contribute to temperature change over sub-decadal timescales in the two nations considered,” two British scientists wrote in their […]

  • The Guardian: Save The Earth, Take The ‘No-Shower Challenge’

    • Date: 16/06/16
    • Chris White, The Daily Caller

    The Guardian, Britain’s wildly anti-fossil fuel news site, floated the idea on Tuesday of taking the “no-shower challenge” as a way to alleviate water shortages and heal environmental degradation. “Reducing the frequency of showers (and the number of cleansing products used) has very real implications for our environment,” The Guardian’s Madeleine Somerville wrote. “The average […]

    • Judith Curry, Climate Etc.

    Ridd was punished by James Cook University for “not displaying responsibility in respecting the reputations of other colleagues.” The university even warned that if he does this again, he’ll be tried for serious misconduct. The latest perversion in research ethics comes to us from James Cook University in Australia. The Australian has the scoop, but it […]
