    A new paper in Nature Climate Change concludes that the so-called pause in global surface temperatures never happened. The paper has been mentioned in a few media outlets. It claims that new data from the Arctic makes the pause go away – and so it seems until you look at the paper in a little more detail […]

  • Stable Snow Cover On The Tibetan Plateau Over 2000–2015

    • Date: 14/11/17
    • Xiaoyue Wang et al., Nature

    No widespread decline in snow cover since 2000 Understanding the changes in snow cover is essential for biological and hydrological processes in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) and its surrounding areas. However, the changes in snow cover phenology over the TP have not been well documented. Using Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) daily snow products and the […]

  • La Nina Has Arrived And Moves Into The Winter

    • Date: 09/11/17
    • USA Today

    La Niña, the cooler sibling of El Niño, is here. The La Niña climate (sic) pattern — a natural cycle marked by cooler-than-average ocean water in the central Pacific Ocean — is one of the main drivers of weather in the U.S. and around the world, especially during the late fall, winter and early spring. […]

  • 2017 Global Temperature: Too Early To Tell

    • Date: 07/11/17
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    It is far too early to judge this year’s global temperature developments and their significance regarding the long-term warming trend. The United Nations climate change conference, held in Bonn this year, is always the cue for press releases from the World Meteorological Office and the UK Met Office in which they give their assessment of the […]

    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    September Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are now available, and we see downward spikes in ocean temps everywhere, led by sharp decreases in the Tropics and SH, reversing the bump upward last month. The Tropical cooling in particular factors into forecasters favoring an unusually late La Nina appearance in coming months.   HadSST is generally regarded […]

    • Date: 25/10/17
    • Kenneth Richard, No Tricks Zone

    During the first 10 months of 2017, 400 scientific papers have been published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob…or that otherwise question the efficacy of climate models or the related “consensus” positions commonly endorsed by policymakers and mainstream media. These 400 new papers support […]

  • Frozen To Death: Too Much Sea Ice & Temperature Drop Causes Antarctic Penguin Disaster

    • Date: 13/10/17
    • The Daily Telegraph

    A colony of more than 36,000 Adelie penguins in Antarctica suffered a catastrophic breeding season with just two chicks surviving, experts have said. Extensive sea ice and a drop in temperature caused chicks to freeze to death. The disaster for the colony in Terre Adelie in East Antarctica was down to unusually extensive sea ice late in […]

  • October Arctic Surprise: Rapid Recovery Of Ice Extent

    • Date: 09/10/17
    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    In recent years, October has seen some rapid recoveries of Arctic ice extents.  But this year may become something special. With the early onset of Siberian snow cover and the resulting surface cooling, ice is roaring back, especially on the Asian side. Consider the refreezing during the last 11 days through yesterday. The graph compares […]
