    London, 20 October: A briefing paper published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation refutes claims that Arctic walruses are in distress and danger due to global warming. The paper, written by Canadian zoologist Dr Susan Crockford, assesses the recent mass haulouts of walrus females and calves on the beaches of Alaska and Russia bordering the […]

    According to the latest IPCC report, AR5, the influence of the sun on our climate since pre-industrial times, in terms of radiative forcing, is very small compared to the effect of greenhouse gases. According to some more skeptical scientists such a small solar influence is counterintuitive. The Little Ice Age, the period roughly from 1350 to […]

    Climate change forecasts may be overestimates due to a failure to take into account how plants absorb carbon dioxide, scientists warned today. Sceptics say the new study further proves that the science of climate change is far from settled   They said the impact of rising CO2 levels on plant growth has been underestimated by 16 […]

    • GWPF

    A new briefing paper from the Global Warming Policy Foundation reviews the scientific literature on rainfall and floods and finds little evidence that there have been significant changes in recent years and little support for claims that they will become worse in future. Despite claims to the contrary, there has been no significant change in […]

  • New Paper: Global Sea Level Rise Has Greatly Decelerated Since ~2002, Contrary To Predictions

    • Date: 08/10/14
    • The Hockey Schtick

    A new discussion paper published in Ocean Science evaluates multi-mission satellite sea level records and shows that the rate of sea level rise has greatly decelerated since ~2002, as has been documented in prior research finding sea level rise decelerated 31% since 2002, and decelerated 44% since 2004 to less than 7 inches per century. This is obviously the opposite of […]

    • Reporting Climate Science

    Data indicates that the expected El Nino Pacific Ocean warming event may be waning and that if it occurs at all then it will be extremely weak. Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) says, in its latest update published today (7 October 2014), that tropical Pacific Ocean indicators “remain within the neutral range, having failed to […]

  • Scientists To ‘Fast-Track’ Extreme Weather Climate Link In Sign Of Panic

    • Date: 05/10/14
    • Darren Boyle, Daily Mail

    Environmental scientists want to introduce a new system to prove that adverse weather events are directly linked to climate change to counter global warming sceptics. Under the new plan, a heatwave or major storm will be linked scientifically to man made climate change immediately after the event to prevent critics from blaming it on natural […]

  • Reality Check: Arctic Walrus Beachings Are Nothing New

    • Date: 03/10/14
    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    Canadian Zoologist Susan Crockford says there are many recorded mass walrus beachings in history going back at least 45 years — when Arctic sea ice extent was much greater than it is now. Environmentalists have been trying to link reports about the beaching of a 35,000-strong walrus herd to global warming, which they say is melting […]
