• Climate Models vs Observations: 2019 Update

    • Date: 12/11/19
    • Ross McKitrick

    Back around 2014 many people, me included, were commenting on the discrepancy between climate models and observations. In a report for the Fraser Institute I showed the following graph: The HadCRUT4 series (black) was then dipping below the 95% lower bound of the model distribution. The IPCC itself in the 5th Assessment Report (2013) noted […]

  • Solar Cycle 25 is Slowly Coming to Life

    Breaking a string of 28 spotless days, a new sunspot (AR2750) is emerging in the sun’s southern hemisphere–and it’s a member of the next solar cycle. How do we know AR2750 belongs to the next solar cycle? Its magnetic polarity tells us so. Southern sunspots from old Solar Cycle 24 have a -/+ polarity. This […]

  • Sea-Level Rise from Antarctic Ice Shelves Might Be Overestimated, Study Finds

    Study finds even the tallest ice cliffs should support their own weight rather than collapsing catastrophically. Antarctica’s ice sheet spans close to twice the area of the contiguous United States, and its land boundary is buttressed by massive, floating ice shelves extending hundreds of miles out over the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean. When […]

  • Retracted Ocean Warming Paper & the IPCC

    • Date: 16/10/19
    • Donna Laframboise, Big Picture News

    A new UN report relies on discredited research – and on academics who conceal vital information. Last Halloween, the Washington Post ran a dramatic headline: Startling new research finds large buildup of heat in the oceans, suggesting a faster rate of global warming. This story was huge news worldwide. Fortune magazine quoted Laure Resplandy, the Princeton University oceanographer who was the research […]

  • Ignore Climate Hysteria: Brazil Set To Post Record Harvest

    • Date: 12/10/19
    • Argus Media

    Brazil’s 2019-20 grain and oilseed crops are poised to reach record production of 245.8mn metric tons (t), boosted by an increase in acreage and a recovery in the soybean crop, which will also likely break a record. The number would mark an increase of 1.6pc from the last cycle. The total area planted is also […]

  • Climate History May Have To Be Re-Written

    • Date: 08/10/19
    • Science Daily

    A team of scientists from South Africa has discovered evidence partially supporting a hypothesis that Earth was struck by an asteroid 12 800 years ago, leading to global consequences including climate change, and contributing to the extinction of many species of large animals at the time of an episode called the Younger Dryas. The team, […]

  • Cosmic Rays Are Nearing A Space Age Record

    • Date: 03/10/19
    • Spaceweather.com

    Solar Minimum is underway, and it’s a deep one. Sunspot counts suggest it is one of the deepest minima of the past century. The sun’s magnetic field has become weak, allowing extra cosmic rays into the solar system. Neutron monitors at the Sodankyla Geophysical Observatory in Oulu, Finland, show that cosmic rays are percentage points away from […]

  • 2019 Arctic Ice Demise Deferred Again

    • Date: 02/10/19
    • Ron Cluz, Science Matters

    Over the last 12 years, the Arctic ice minimum has not declined, and since 2007 looks like fluctuations around a plateau. The graph shows the annual minimum September monthly average sea ice extent in NH from 2007 through 2019 according to two different data sets:  Sea Ice Indiex (SII) from NOAA and Multisensor Analyzed Sea […]
