    The Met Office yesterday confirmed that the warm record of 2016 was mainly driven by a very strong El Nino. Not that you would have heard this fact in the news. But Peter Stott, Acting Director of the Met Office Hadley Centre, said in no uncertain terms that, “a particularly strong El Nino event contributed […]

    With more rain and snow on the way, the supposed “unending drought” that the New York Times reported on last year has, in a matter of weeks, ended — at least in Northern California. Yesterday’s color satellite imagery from NASA shows the dramatic changes which have occurred since the same date three years ago: – Widespread and deep snowpack […]

  • David Whitehouse: El Nino Warming Does Not Mean The End Of The ‘Pause’

    • Date: 09/01/17
    • David Whitehouse, The Spectator

    The death of the global warming ‘pause’ has been greatly exaggerated The global warming ‘pause’ never existed, say the headlines. It’s a claim that has been made before, only to be refuted, yet now it’s back again. If there is one topic that sends a small subset of climate scientists’ temperature into the stratosphere, it’s the […]

  • Death Of Global Temperature ‘Pause’ Greatly Exaggerated

    • Date: 05/01/17
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Any estimate of temperature trends that have their endpoint on the uptick of the El Nino curve will give a misleadingly high trend.  A new paper falls into this trap, claiming the global temperature hiatus never existed.  The headlines say there is fresh doubt over the so-called global warming “hiatus” or “pause” – a period since […]

    Strong December Cooling Leads to 2016 Being Statistically Indistinguishable from 1998 The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for December 2016 was +0.24 deg. C, down substantially from the November value of +0.45 deg. C (click for full size version): The resulting 2016 annual average global temperature anomaly is +0.50 deg. C, […]

    Supposedly 2016 was the banner year for global warming. So what has it brought? Arctic sea ice extent finishes the year at the level of the last few years: NH snow extent was at the second highest on record this autumn: Greenland’s ice sheet has been growing at a phenomenal rate: Hurricane activity for the […]

    Tornadoes killed only 17 Americans this year, the fewest in 30 years and the second fewest since accurate records began in 1950. In 1986, 15 died, which is the least on record, according to the Storm Prediction Center. (Unofficial records from before 1950 show only one other year with so few deaths: 1910, with 12.) Full […]

  • Polar Bear Population Is Rising, Despite Green Fears

    • Date: 23/12/16
    • Andrew Follett, The Daily Caller

    Polar bears are much more resilient to changing levels of sea ice than environmentalists previously believed, and numerous healthy populations are thriving. Predictions that bears would die due to a lack of sea ice have continuously not come to pass. A new study by Canadian scientists found “no evidence” polar bears are currently threatened by global warming. […]
