• Rising Carbon Dioxide Is Making The World’s Plants More Water-Wise

    • Date: 29/07/17
    • Pep Canadell et al. The Conversation

    Land plants are absorbing 17% more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere now than 30 years ago, our research published today shows. Equally extraordinarily, our study also shows that the vegetation is hardly using any extra water to do it, suggesting that global change is causing the world’s plants to grow in a more water-efficient way. Water is […]

    The Sun, now halfway through its life, might be slowing its magnetic activity, researchers say, which could lead to permanent changes in the sunspots and auroras we see. The spotless Sun of July 21, 2017. NASA / SDO / HMI The Sun has changed its figure, researchers say, and might keep it that way. The […]

  • The Hiatus: One Message For Politicians, Another For Scientists

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

    Politicians are usually seen as fair game for criticism especially if they talk about the inconvenient details of climate change. If only they would stick to the simplicities and repeat the mantra that climate change is real and happening and we are entirely to blame. Woe betide any politician who delves into the detail. Usually […]

  • Tired of Being Wrong, Climate Alarmists Move Doomsday to Next Century

    • Date: 17/07/17
    • Independent Journal Review

    If the climate alarmists weren’t still so politically powerful and represented in Congress by their devoted cult members, it would almost be easy to pity them. Why? Because they’re so spectacularly wrong about so many things. They keep the hype coming regardless, as in this article that cites the fact that it’s hot in the desert in […]

  • Ocean Cools and Air Temps Follow

    • Date: 12/07/17
    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    June Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are now available, and we can see ocean temps dropping further after a short pause and resuming the downward trajectory from the previous 12 months. HadSST is generally regarded as the best of the global SST data sets, and so the temperature story here comes from that source, the latest […]

    Sea surface temperatures in the central-eastern Pacific Nino 3.4 region were +0.6°C above average last week, down from +0.7°C the prior week. Further east off the coast of Peru in Nino 1+2 region, surface temperatures were -0.3°C below the seasonal average, the lowest since Nov. Wind speeds and sub-surface temperatures all point to broadly neutral […]

  • China Met Office Confirms Global Warming Hiatus

    • Date: 04/07/17
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    The China Meteorological Administration (CMA) has recently developed a new global monthly land-surface air temperature data set called CMA GLSAT. Using it researchers from the administration reanalysed the change in global annual mean land-surface air temperature during three time periods (1901–2014, 1979–2014 and 1998–2014) to see if there was any evidence of a hiatus or […]
