• El Nino In Decline

    El Nino’s effect on global temperatures and weather systems has been dramatic in the past few months, achieving records for individual months and, with a significant contribution from the Pacific “Blob,” is bound to make 2015 globally the warmest year of the instrumental era. Many were expecting the current El Nino to start in 2014. […]

    Arctic ice declined in the decade prior to 2007, but has not declined since. What we have seen in the last decade is a plateau in Arctic ice extent, analogous to the plateau in surface temperatures. This year end report shows there is no reason to worry about Arctic ice melting. Against the odds, 2015 […]

  • Satellite Data Show Global Warming Likely To ‘Remain Below 2 Degree C’

    • Date: 21/12/15
    • Reporting Climate Science

    Global warming is happening at around 1.2C per century, according to the 37 year old satellite dataset maintained by the University of Alabama in Huntsville Global warming is within the 2oC goal set by the United Nations (UN), according to scientists from the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). An analysis of satellite data stretching […]

  • New Research Confirms Arctic Sea Ice Standstill

    • Date: 15/12/15
    • Reporting Climate Science

    A new paper forecasts that overall winter sea ice extent will remain steady in the near future. This research underlines the significance of satellite data showing that Arctic sea ice extent now is broadly similar to that reported a decade ago. Climate scientists at the US National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) present evidence in […]

  • 2015 Will Be 3rd Warmest Year In the Satellite Record

    • Date: 05/12/15
    • Roy Spencer blog

    Way back in June, John Christy and I called 2015 as being the warmest year on record…in the surface thermometer data. Given the strong El Nino in progress, on top of the official thermometer data warming trend, this seemed pretty obvious. Of course, everyone has their opinions regarding how good the thermometer temperature trends are, […]

  • How To Get Rid Of The Warming Pause – Again

    • Date: 27/11/15
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The hiatus in annual average surface temperature does not exist and never has and is a myth created by climate sceptics. That’s what a new paper claims. What’s more its very description as a “hiatus” or a “pause” is dangerous because it misleads both scientists and the public. The paper in question is published in […]

  • Reality Check: Drought, Climate, War, Terrorism, and Syria

    • Date: 24/11/15
    • Roger Andrews, Energy Matters

    It’s routinely claimed that climate-change-induced drought in Syria was a major factor in triggering the Syrian civil war, the Syrian refugee crisis and the rise of ISIS. But are these claims supported by the data? This post investigates this question. We begin with this quote from a Climate and Security article, which claims that the recent drought […]

  • New Survey: Record High Numbers Of Polar Bears

    • Date: 22/11/15
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    New survey estimates that global polar bear population is growing The long-awaited 2015 IUCN Red List assessment for polar bears was released today (Wiig et al. 2015) and it includes some rather astonishing details − including the fact that the population trend is unknown. 1) It confirms the global population size I published in May […]
