    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The decline of arctic ice cover has become an icon of man-made global warming. It’s one of those factors like, temperature rise, sea level rise and ocean acidification that, according to some, when taken with the others, point to a compelling picture of what is happening to our planet. Despite its iconic status no one […]

  • Atlantic Ocean Showing Signs Of A Significant Shift To Cold Phase

    • Date: 29/04/16

    The Atlantic Ocean experienced a cold phase from the early 1960’s to the mid 1990’s at which time it flipped to a warm phase and that has continued for the most part ever since. The current warm phase, however, is now showing signs of a possible long-term shift back to colder-than-normal sea surface temperatures. Overview […]

  • More Of The Usual Hype About Arctic Ice

    • Date: 31/03/16
    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    Far from collapsing, Arctic sea ice area has been remarkably stable in the last decade. NSIDC has provisionally announced that Arctic sea ice extent has recorded the lowest maximum in the satellite record. This has naturally set the media off ringing alarm bells, like this silly one from Climate Home, “Arctic sea ice fell to […]

  • Arctic Ice And Another Little Ice Age

    • Dr David Whitehouse

    Journalism, especially science journalism, can be either descriptive or analytical. Recently those articles covering climate change have been concentrating on the former to the detriment of understanding the story. Take for example the story about the Arctic sea ice extent reaching record low for this time of year. See here and here. Sounds ominous, especially […]

    Is the global warming pause over for good — or will it continue once the current El Nino dies down? That is the key question raised by Dr David Whitehouse, the GWPF’s science editor, in a new video produced by the Global Warming Policy Foundation. The current El Nino is one of the strongest on […]

  • The Global Warming Hiatus Is Real, So Why Don’t We Hear About It?

    • Date: 27/02/16
    • David Whitehouse, The Spectator

    A new paper in a prestigious journal suggests that the hiatus in global warming of the past 15 years is real. So why has it been ignored? In 2007 I pointed out that it was curious that in recent years the global annual average temperature had not increased at a time when greenhouse gasses were […]

    This year is virtually bang on the MAISIE mean, and well above 2006. https://nsidc.org/data/masie/ While we’re on the topic of DMI Arctic sea ice graphs, it is worthwhile recalling Ron Clutz’s post the other day on NSIDC’s MAISIE data. You may recall that Ron showed how MAISIE, which is the new all singing and dancing […]
