    There has been no warming in or around Antarctica since 1979. http://vortex.nsstc.uah.edu/data/msu/t2lt/uahncdc_lt_5.6.txt  As can be seen, there were two major cooling episodes, centred around 1993/94 and 1999/2000, since which temperatures have recovered back to the levels of the 1980’s. Indeed the 120-Month running average is still not as high as it was in 1990. This […]

The media have been saying that the collapse of the West Antarctic glaciers is unstoppable; nothing can halt their retreat, say the headlines. They […]

  • Judith Curry: U.S. National Climate Assessment Report

    • Date: 07/05/14
    • Judith Curry, Climate Etc.

    My main conclusion from reading the U.S. National Climate Assessment Report is this: the phrase ‘climate change’ is now officially meaningless.
