• Are Ocean Currents Speeding Up … Or Are They Slowing Down? Nobody Knows

    The latest research contradicts previous studies which suggested that global warming will weaken ocean circulation, especially in tropical waters. “Global warming is speeding up Earth’s massive ocean currents,” said one headline. “Global ocean circulation is accelerating from the surface to the abyss,” said another.” But this is another of those climate stories in which the […]

  • Thwaites Glacier: Why Did The BBC Fail To Mention The Volcanoes Underneath?

    • Date: 29/01/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Scientists have known for years that subglacial volcanoes and other geothermal “hotspots” are contributing to the melting of the Thwaites Glacier. Why did the BBC fail to mention these facts in its recent report? The International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration is performing some magnificent science, conducting the most ambitious fieldwork ever undertaken at the tip of […]

  • Down And Up: 2019 Global Temperature

    • Date: 20/01/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Last year was the second, third or fourth warmest depending on whom you speak to, with by far most of the warming occurring in one region of the planet, the Arctic. We’ve just lived through the warmest decade in at least 170 years, probably longer. The past five years have been the warmest, dominating the […]

  • Ocean Warming: Not As Simple As Headlines Say

    • Date: 16/01/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    The bottom line of this paper is that according to the authors the world’s oceans (i.e. parts of them) have increased in temperature by less than 0.1 degrees C in 60 years. It’s the usual story. It’s the beginning of the year and the statistics of the previous year are hurriedly collected to tell the […]

  • 30 Years Of IPCC Reports: How Well Have They Done?

    • Date: 03/01/20

    It is normal practice in science that theoretical predictions which fail experimental tests are rejected or at the very least modified. Not in climate science though. Over the last 30 years there have been 5 IPCC assessment reports on climate change.  I decided to compare each  warming predictions made at the time of publication to […]

    Climate activists often warn that global warming is stoking forest fires, but it turns out the amount of land burned by wildfires worldwide has plummeted by 25% since 2003, according to NASA. NASA’s Earth Observatory found that the number of total square kilometers burned globally each year has decreased steadily from 2003-19, based on data […]

    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    The animation below shows that in December sea ice ice has recovered in the central Arctic with open water found only on the margins, as is typical this time of year. The animation shows progression of ice extent from Dec. 1 to Dec. 22, 2019. Most dramatic is Hudson Bay on the left filling in […]

  • Earth Is Being Bombarded By Cosmic Rays As Sunspots Set Space Age Record

    • Date: 18/12/19
    • Metro News

    Planet Earth is being bombarded by cosmic rays which are among the most powerful in recorded history as the sun set a Space Age record for spotlessness. The sun is currently going through a period in its 11-year cycle called the solar minimum, which means sunspot activity has slowed and its face has gone blank. […]
