    Way back in June, John Christy and I called 2015 as being the warmest year on record…in the surface thermometer data. Given the strong El Nino in progress, on top of the official thermometer data warming trend, this seemed pretty obvious. Of course, everyone has their opinions regarding how good the thermometer temperature trends are, […]

  • How To Get Rid Of The Warming Pause – Again

    • Date: 27/11/15
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The hiatus in annual average surface temperature does not exist and never has and is a myth created by climate sceptics. That’s what a new paper claims. What’s more its very description as a “hiatus” or a “pause” is dangerous because it misleads both scientists and the public. The paper in question is published in […]

    It’s routinely claimed that climate-change-induced drought in Syria was a major factor in triggering the Syrian civil war, the Syrian refugee crisis and the rise of ISIS. But are these claims supported by the data? This post investigates this question. We begin with this quote from a Climate and Security article, which claims that the recent drought […]

  • Weather Pushes World Temperature Over Threshold

    • Date: 09/11/15

    From the bad news, suitably simplified, before the Paris Climate talks department comes a press release issued by the UK Met Office saying that the global annual average temperature for 2015 is set to exceed one degree C above pre-industrial levels. This means that we are halfway to the much-discussed hypothesis of the two degree […]

    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The global warming hiatus is one of the most important topics in climate science. The data shows us something very interesting is happening and many scientists are producing amazing research in pursuit of an explanation.
