    Scientists are facing a crisis of trust. Increasingly, Americans believe that what’s called science is actually political posturing. A Pew Research Center poll released Jan. 29 shows a huge gap between the views of scientists and the general public on a range of issues — not just climate change but also genetically modified foods, vaccinations, the […]

    Are global warming skeptics simply ignorant about climate science? Not so, says a forthcoming paper in the journal Advances in Political Psychology by Yale Professor Dan Kahan. He finds that skeptics score about the same (in fact slightly better) on climate science questions. The study asked 2,000 respondents nine questions about where they thought scientists stand […]

    Counting sunspots over time helps in knowing the activity of our star but the two indices used by scientists disagree on dates prior to 1885. Now an international team of researchers has tried to standardise the historical results and has discovered that, contrary to what one may think, the solar activity of our times is […]

    Press Release – Authors of a fatally flawed climate study “have no scientifically-defensible choice but to withdraw the paper.” A recent paper in Nature has received worldwide media attention because of its claim to have shown that the recent hiatus in surface temperature rises was the result of natural variability. The lead author, Jochem Marotzke of the […]

    North America’s premier weather agencies have been questioned over “homogenisation” changes to international temperature records used to declare last year the hottest on record. Neither NASA nor the National Oceanic and Atmospheric ­Association have responded to international reports questioning why temperature records at three rural stations in Paraguay had been changed dramatically. Independent climate researcher […]

  • New Study: IPCC Climate Models Fail To Explain Climate Variability

    • Duke University

    “The inconsistencies we found among the climate models are a reality check showing we may not know as much as we thought we did” DURHAM, N.C. – A new Duke University-led study finds that most climate models likely underestimate the degree of decade-to-decade variability occurring in mean surface temperatures as Earth’s atmosphere warms. The models also […]
