    • Arjen Luijendijk et al. (2018) Scientific Reports 8: 6641 (2018), doi:10.1038/s41598-018-24630-6

    Analysis of satellite derived shoreline data indicates that 24% of the world’s sandy beaches are eroding at rates exceeding 0.5 m/yr, while 28% are accreting and 48% are stable. The State of the World’s Beaches Abstract — Coastal zones constitute one of the most heavily populated and developed land zones in the world. Despite the utility […]

  • Solar Activity Flatlines: Cycle 24 Weakest In 200 Years

    In March our supplier of energy was more inactive than in the previous months. The sunspot number was only 2,5, which is only 8% of what is normal for this month into the average cycle (month 112). A sunspot was detected only on 6 of 31 days. Figure 1:  The current solar cycle no. 24 (red) compared […]

    It surely looks like the solar minimum has arrived, and it has done so far earlier than expected! On Sunday NOAA posted its monthly update of the solar cycle, covering sunspot activity for March 2018. Below is my annotated version of that graph. March 2018 was the least active month for sunspots since the middle of […]

    • University of Alabama, Huntsville

    Scientists in the Earth System Science Center (ESSC) at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) have calculated how much false warming NOAA-14 reported so the false warming could be removed from a long-term global atmospheric temperature record collected by MSU’s on satellites since mid-November 1978. Weather Satellite Wanders Through Time, Space, Causing Stray Warming to Contaminate […]

  • Global Ocean Temps Keep Falling, Now Colder Than Before 2015/16 El Nino

    • Date: 31/03/18
    • Run Clutz, Science Matters

    Global ocean temperatures continue to fall and are now colder than they were before the record 2015/16 El Nino. The best context for understanding decadal temperature changes comes from the world’s sea surface temperatures (SST), for several reasons: The ocean covers 71% of the globe and drives average temperatures; SSTs have a constant water content, […]

  • BBC Regrets Climate Error And Failure To Meet Usual Standards Of Reporting — Then Does It Again

    • Date: 26/03/18
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Everybody makes mistakes, and some of them matter. On the BBC’s News at Ten on the 18th January 2018 there were two of them, and the GWPF complained a few days later. The first error was in describing the global temperature of 2017 as the “hottest year on record,” which it wasn’t. The second mistake […]

    • Mark Vogan

    The Beast from the East 2 has driven some remarkable cold and snow across Europe. Following the biggest snowfall since 2010 and second biggest since 1989 in February, Paris, France observed another 4cm but also observed it’s coldest maximum for late March since 1975 with a high of only 1.7C. The day before it only […]

  • Short-Lived La Nina Fades Away

    • Date: 13/03/18
    • Bloomberg

    The shortest La Nina in almost a decade has ended, just three months after it began.     Sea surface temperatures have warmed steadily since December and are now in the neutral range, Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology said in a statement on Tuesday. Most models indicate a neutral pattern will persist into the Southern Hemisphere autumn and winter, it said. […]
