  • Has Human Influence On The Seasonal Cycle Been Found?

    • Date: 20/07/18
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Has a newly identified human-caused signal emerged from the background of climate noise? This is the claim by Santer et al in a paper just published in Science. The signal is increased seasonal range of tropospheric temperatures observed in mid-latitudes. Santer et al. say that most such AGW “fingerprint” studies rely on comparing climate model […]

    • Kenneth Richard , No Tricks Zone

    Unearthed new evidence (Mangerud and Svendsen, 2018) reveals that during the Early Holocene, when CO2 concentrations hovered around 260 ppm, “warmth-demanding species” were living in locations 1,000 km farther north of where they exist today in Arctic Svalbard, indicating that summer temperatures must have been about “6°C warmer than at present”. Proxy evidence from two other […]
