    David Rose’s splendid and significant article in last week’s Mail on Sunday certainly caused a stir. The initial reaction, mostly distractions, have been easily dealt with by David Rose in this week’s installment. One of the points raised concerned a paper submitted to the Journal of Climate by Huang et al. It is about the […]

  • Don’t Be Distracted By Nit-Pickers: This Is Serious

    • Date: 06/02/17

    David Rose’s excellent investigative journalism in the Mail on Sunday has turned up a remarkable story of poor scientific practice, lack of openness and bias regarding the Karl et al (2015) paper in Science. This is the paper that was quickly dubbed the “pausebuster” as it was said to have removed any evidence of a […]

    Sea ice charts for 18 January from NSIDC Masie show exactly as much sea ice in 2017 as there was back in 2006 – 13.4 million km^2. Masie image below from 2006 (enlarged and cropped from archived version and label re-inserted) shows the distribution of ice was slightly different than this year (less in Baffin Bay/Davis Strait/Labrador Sea, more […]

    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 […]
