    In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, NASA’s brand new Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 successfully reached its final destination: space. It still has three weeks of maneuvers to do before it reaches its ultimate orbit 438 miles above the Earth. But by the end of the month it should be fully launched on its scientific mission: […]

  • Is An El Nino Impeding Indian Monsoon Progress At Present?

    • Date: 01/07/14
    • Madhav Khandekar, The Global Warming Policy Foundation

    The Indian summer (June-September) monsoon impacts over 1.7 billion people of the Indian subcontinent and its timely progress, from the onset at the southern tip of India  around the 1st of June till about the 27th of June, when it is generally established all over India, is crucial for India’s agriculturally dominated economy. Besides agriculture, the summer […]

  • A Solar Show With Mixed Reviews

    Solar maximum is now. Indeed, the maximum — the peak of the 11-year sunspot cycle, when the sun erupts with solar flares and energetic bursts of electrons and protons — may have already passed. Three X-class solar flares, the most powerful type, erupted June 10 and 11. The images are from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. CreditImage by […]

  • El Nino Intensity Cannot Be Known Beyond Two Months, Says Research Body

    • Date: 30/06/14
    • Alicia Villegas, Undercurrent News

    ENFEN, the Peruvian institution researching El Nino, maintains its projection of weak to moderate warm conditions off the coast of Peru for the next two months. A further forecast would require a “crystal ball”, Grinia Avalos, climatology director at Senamhi — the National Service of Meteorology researching along with ENFEN — told Undercurrent News. “We speak about an […]

  • Antarctica Sets New Record For Sea Ice

    • Date: 29/06/14
    • Harold Ambler, Talking About The Weather

    The sea ice surrounding Antarctica, which, as I reported in my book, has been steadily increasing throughout the period of satellite measurement that began in 1979, has hit a new all-time record high for areal coverage. The new record anomaly for Southern Hemisphere sea ice, the ice encircling the southernmost continent, is 2.074 million square kilometers and was […]

  • NOAA’s “Hottest Month” Claims Are Unscientific

    • Date: 25/06/14
    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know THat

    NOAA’s claim is unscientific, irresponsible and seems to be designed to create a deliberately political and alarmist message. It’s not that I’m particularly prescient, but today’s headlines, prompted by the latest NOAA press release, rather substantiates the point I was making last week. The Telegraph (and no doubt many other outlets) report: Driven by exceptionally […]

  • Swapping Climate Models For A Roll Of The Dice

    • Date: 21/06/14
    • Doug L Hoffman, The Resilient Earth

    One of the greatest failures of climate science has been the dismal performance of general circulation models (GCM) to accurately predict Earth’s future climate. For more than three decades huge predictive models, run on the biggest supercomputers available, have labored mighty and turned out garbage. Their most obvious failure was missing the now almost eighteen […]

  • Is it the Sun Stupid?

    • Date: 11/06/14
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The publication of research into the solar-climate connection by Chinese astronomers, albeit in an obscure publication, has once again posed the question whether the recent warming observed on Earth has something to do with the sun’s behaviour. The usual answer is that solar changes are too small to account for terrestrial changes both in absolute […]
