    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    It’s been a busy year for climate scientists, who have been trying to explain why there has been no global warming for nearly two decades. The Daily Caller News Foundation reported in February there were eight mainstream explanations for the pause, but there are now a whopping 52 explanations for why there has been no warming trend for the […]

  • Yet Another Theory Trying To Explain Temperature Standstill

    • Date: 12/09/14
    • European Commission Joint Research Centre

    A hiatus in global warming ongoing since 2001 is due to a combination of a natural cooling phase, known as multidecadal variability (MDV) and a downturn of the secular warming trend. The exact causes of the latter, unique in the entire observational record going back to 1850, are still to be identified, according to a […]

  • Is The Polar Bear A Political Weapon In Climate War?

    • Date: 10/09/14
    • Ellie Zolfagharifard, Daily Mail

    Solitary polar bears have become the poster boys of global warming. Standing on melting glaciers, their saddened faces are often plastered over posters, adverts and brochures warning of the dangers of greenhouse gas emissions. But some scientists say polar bears, are far from endangered. Instead, they claim, the creatures are being used as political weapons in the […]

  • Nearly Half Of 80s Warming Due To Natural Variability, New Study

    • Date: 09/09/14
    • Reporting Climate Science

    Nearly half the warming seen during the 1980s was due to natural variations linked with long term cycles in the Pacific Ocean, according to new research. Natural variability contributes ‘considerably’ to surface warming but the relative importance of natural variation, compared to human-driven warming is declining, researchers claim.   Click to enlarge. Observed and simulated […]

  • Australian Met Office Under Pressure Over Manipulated Temperature Data

    • Date: 06/09/14
    • Graham Lloyd, The Australian

    Some of Australia’s long-term temperature records may contain faults introduced by the Bureau of Meteorology’s computer modelling, according to a widely published expert. David Stockwell said a full audit of the BoM national data set was needed after the bureau confirmed that statistical tests, rather than direct evidence, were the “primary” justification for making changes.

  • New Paper Finds Holocene Cooling As CO2 Rose

    • Date: 05/09/14
    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    A new paper from Zhengyu Liu et al finds that global cooling since the middle Holocene took place at the same time as CO2 was rising and ice sheets were still in retreat. As they say, “this global cooling is puzzling because it is opposite from the expected and simulated global warming trend due to […]
