• How Gaia And Coral Reefs Regulate Ocean pH

    • Date: 14/10/16
    • Jim Steele, Climate Etc

    Although some researchers have raised concerns about possible negative effects of rising CO2 on ocean surface pH, there are several lines of evidence demonstrating marine ecosystems are far more sensitive to fluxes of carbon dioxide from ocean depths and the biosphere’s response than from invasions of atmospheric CO2. There is also ample evidence that lower […]

    A U.S. government weather forecaster raised its outlook on Thursday for La Nina conditions in the coming months, saying the weather phenomenon is likely to develop in the Northern Hemisphere fall and favored to persist into the winter 2016-17. The Climate Prediction Center (CPC), an agency of the National Weather Service, in a monthly forecast […]

  • Damage Limitation Exercise As Climate Prediction Fails Again

    • Date: 08/10/16
    • Sarah Knapton, The Daily Telegraph

    Dire predictions that the Arctic would be devoid of sea ice by September this year have proven to be unfounded after latest satellite images showed there is far more now than in 2012. Scientists such as Prof Peter Wadhams, of Cambridge University, and Prof Wieslaw Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School in Moderey, California, have […]

  • Record Arctic Sea Ice Growth In September

    • Date: 25/09/16
    • Paul Homewood. Not A Lot Of People Know That

    Since hitting its earliest minimum extent since 1997, Arctic sea ice has been expanding at a phenomenal rate. Already it is greater than at the same date in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015. Put another way, it is the fourth highest extent in the last ten years. Even more remarkably, ice growth since […]

  • The Limits of Knowledge and the Climate Change Debate

    • Date: 24/09/16
    • Brian J. L. Berry, Jayshree Bihari and Euel Elliott, Cato Journal

    The “debate” over climate change — which is really, in Matt Ridley’s terms, a “war” absent any real debate — has potentially done grave harm to the scientific enterprise. The question of whether climate change is produced by anthropogenic global warming (henceforth AGW) has triggered an increasingly contentious confrontation over the conduct of science, the […]

  • Academic Absurdity Of The Week: Fake Peer Reviews

    • Date: 23/09/16
    • Steven Hayward, Power Line

    Using automatic text generation software, computer scientists at Italy’s University of Trieste created a series of fake peer reviews of genuine journal papers. The research team was able to influence the peer review process in one in four cases by throwing fake reviews into the mix. I’m guessing that the number of Power Line readers who take in […]

  • The Inevitable Evolution of Bad Science

    • Date: 22/09/16
    • Ed Yong, The Atlantic

    “As long as the incentives are there, then rewards will be there for those who can cheat the system, whether they do so intentionally or not.” Bacteria, animals, languages, cancers: all of these things can evolve, which we know from the work of legions of scientists. You could argue that science itself also evolves.  Researchers […]
