  • Atlantic Ocean Warming Since 1975 Was Natural, New Paper

    • The Hockey Schtick

    A paper published today in Climate Dynamics finds that warming of the surface of tropical Atlantic Ocean since 1975 was not due to an increase of greenhouse gases, and was instead due to natural ocean and atmospheric oscillations. According to the authors, “After a decrease of SST by about 1 °C during 1964–1975, most apparent in the […]

    The recent spate of stories about the condition of the Antarctic ice sheets will have been consumed by the public as further evidence that man is changing the climate in bad ways.

    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 West Antarctic Ice Sheet “Collapse”

    • Date: 16/05/14
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    Despite having local unstable regions Antarctica has more sea ice surrounding it than for many years, with more ice being added than is being lost by glaciers in the West Antarctic. The media have been saying that the collapse of the West Antarctic glaciers is unstoppable; nothing can halt their retreat, say the headlines. They […]

    Is the El Nino Coming? Possibly, according to these predictions, here, here, here and here. There has been some discussion recently about the possibility of an El Nino starting later this year and if it will restart global warming. Certainly if the usual effect of an El Nino – warming of the surface waters of […]
