• At Last: First Attempt To Create Unbiased Global Surface Temperature Record

    • Date: 11/02/11

    Global warming is the favored scapegoat for any seemingly strange occurrence in nature, from dying frogs to hurricanes to drowning polar bears. But according to a Berkeley group of scientists, global warming does not deserve all these attributions. Rather, they say global warming is responsible for one thing: the rising temperature. However, global warming has […]

They conclude that with respect to these events: Given empirical evidence about the link between climate […]

  • Climate Hysteria: Paul Krugman Has Lost It

    • Date: 07/02/11

    Paul Krugman joins the crowd who think that they can see the signal of greenhouse emissions in noisy, short-term data on food prices, and then construct a chain of causality to the ongoing unrest in the Middle East.  Such tenuous claims of attribution have about as much scientific standing as Pat Robertson saying that Hurricane Katrina […]

  • How Does the IPCC Safeguard Against Bias?

    • Date: 06/02/11

    I recently observed that many Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) insiders have concerns about who gets selected to write IPCC reports. According to these critics, scientific excellence is not the main criteria. Rather, a great deal of attention is paid to regional, gender, and national diversity.

  • The Ocean Plays A Deeper Game

    • Date: 05/02/11

    Around 19,000 years ago, oceanic conditions underwent dramatic changes that coincided with a shift in global climate, marking the onset of the Holocene warming. In the North Atlantic, major changes in the Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC), which carries warm and highly saline surface water north to cooler regions, played a substantial role in regulating climate […]

  • Climate Sceptics And Scientists Attempt Peace Deal

    • Date: 03/02/11

    Climate sceptics offer a peace deal. Well, no it wasn’t quite like that. But in Lisbon, Portugal, last week, I joined a group of 28 climate scientists, bloggers and professional contrarians who spent three days discussing how to encourage reconciliation in the increasing fractious debate about the science of climate change. The meeting was the […]
