• Climate Change: Patterns Of Evidence

    • Date: 08/11/13

    It has been said often that man-made climate change is not revealed in any specific climate parameter but by a “pattern of evidence.” So what is happening to some of the potential candidates for inclusion in the climate change “pattern of evidence?” Any one changing parameter, such as global temperature, ice sheet changes, stratospheric cooling, changing […]

    Click on image to enlarge. New research carried out by and published in the journal Science (University press release) is providing fascinating new insights about how the heat content of the oceans have been changing over the last few thousand years, as well as providing yet more evidence that the Medieval Warm Period and the […]

  • Cold Winters, Hot News

    • Date: 30/10/13

    There has been a rather unnecessary blogosphere fuss about a TV report by BBC North East weatherman Paul Hudson, whose reports on the science of climate change have been the most informed of any reporter working for the BBC. He produced a brief TV report suggesting that Northern Europe, and in particular his North East […]

  • Gaia In Action: Coral Reefs Have Inbuilt Mechanism That Adapts To Local Temperature

    • Date: 27/10/13
    • Colin Schultz, Smithonian blog

    New research has found that coral can release a chemical that helps them engineer their environment and stave off warming. Coral reefs are on the receiving end of the battering ram that is anthropogenic climate change. With their vibrant colors and exotic fish, they’re the poster child of ocean degradation, and they get a lot of attention because […]

    The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season looks set to go down as a big washout, marking the first time in 45 years that the strongest storm to form was just a minor Category 1 hurricane. There could still be a late surprise in the June 1-November 30 season, since the cyclone that mushroomed into Superstorm Sandy […]

  • New Paper: PDO Controls North American Temperatures Via Changes In Cloud Cover

    • Date: 24/10/13
    • The Hockey Schtick

    A paper published today in Atmospheric Research describes a mechanism by which changes in the natural Pacific Decadal Oscillation [PDO] affect air temperatures and water vapor, which subsequently affects cloudiness over North America [planetary albedo], and therefore land surface temperatures. As noted by Dr. Roy Spencer in his book, “The most obvious way for warming to be caused naturally is for small, natural […]

  • Will We See A Drop In Global Temperatures When PDO & AMO Go Cold Together?

    • Date: 21/10/13
    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    The PDO has now turned cold, and, with the AMO still in its warm phase, temperatures are flatlining. By the mid 2020’s we are likely to see both great ocean patterns stuck together in their cold phases well into the 2030’s. It is well established that both the Atlantic Multidecadal & the Pacific Decadal Oscillations affect […]

  • Antarctic Ice Sets New All Time Record

    • Date: 19/10/13
    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    Quite astonishingly, Antarctic sea ice has set another record for maximum extent, beating the previous record of 19.513 million sq km, set on 21st September this year. http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/index.html What makes the new record so astonishing is that it was set in October, on the 1st. Climatologically, the maximum extent is reached on 22nd September, so […]
