    Predictions are the essence of science. For a theory or a model to remain credible it has to predict something and that prediction must be compared to reality. Every scientist knows the remark that ‘many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact.’ A particular theory can make a prediction about something that has […]

  • Will La Niña Take El Niño’s Place In The Pacific?

    • The Weather Network

    People all over the world are keeping a very close eye on how this historic El Niño evolves during the next few months. We know from previous ocean monitoring that the end of El Niño is often followed by the reversal of the phenomenon, known as La Niña, although that is not always the case. Many years […]

  • 2015 Global Temp, Or How Some Scientists Deliberately Mistook Weather For Climate

    • Date: 22/01/16
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The data for the global temperature of 2015 is in, and it’s a “shattering” record. It is claimed that global warming has resurged, terminating the warming “pause” for good. But an important factor has been downplayed and one ignored altogether. Nasa says that 2015 was 0.13°C+/-0.10°C above 2014. The UK Met Office said that 2015 was […]

  • NASA, NOAA and UK Met Office Show El Nino Boosted 2015 Temp

    • Date: 20/01/16

    Data for the global temperature of 2015 have been released by Nasa, Noaa and the UK Met Office. As anticipated 2015 is the warmest year on record and consistent with the El Nino boosting global temperatures, along with a contribution from the unprecedented warming caused by the so-called Pacific “blob.” Noaa says 2015 was 0.16°C+/-0.09°C […]

  • Marine Food Chain Has Increased 10 Times, Thanks To CO2 Fertilization

    • Date: 18/01/16
    • Science Daily

    Coccolithophores — tiny calcifying plants that are part of the foundation of the marine food web — have been increasing in relative abundance in the North Atlantic over the last 45 years, as carbon input into ocean waters has increased. Their relative abundance has increased 10 times, or by an order of magnitude, during this […]

    Wild weather swings from the phenomenon known as El Nino have rocked commodities and countries from Australia to Paraguay. Now, analysts are tipping renewed jitters spurred by La Nina, El Nino’s little sister. While El Nino is characterized by rising sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, La Nina represents periods of below-average temperatures, which […]

  • El Nino In Decline

    • Date: 05/01/16
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    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. […]

  • Happy Arctic Ice Year!

    • Date: 02/01/16
    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    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 […]
