    Extreme weather events attribution science yields murky results Rainfall from Hurricane Harvey so far has averaged around 30 inches, although the U.S. Weather Service projects that some areas of coastal Texas might receive as much as 50 inches before the slow moving storm exits the region. Historically, Texas is no stranger to tropical storm inundation. In […]

    Greenland’s melt season ended a month ago, and since last September the ice sheet has grown at close to record rates. Much was made of the anomalously warm year in 2012, which was quickly linked to climate change. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2012/jul/24/greenland-ice-sheet-thaw-nasa I doubt whether Guardian readers will be allowed to read about the latest news. Meanwhile Arctic […]

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    We keep being told by climate alarmists that global warming is responsible for more intensive rainfall, the theory being that a warmer atmosphere can hold more moisture. Funny then that when we look at rainfall records across the US for all sorts of different timescales, we find none at all since 1981. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/ohd/hdsc/record_precip/record_precip_us.html Take particular […]

    As the Houston flood disaster is unfolding, there is considerable debate about whether Hurricane Harvey was influenced by “global warming”. While such an issue matters little to the people of Houston, it does matter for our future infrastructure planning and energy policy. Let’s review the two basic reasons why the Houston area is experiencing what […]
