    • Ronald Bailey, Reason Online

    How long the temperature pause must last before it would falsify the more catastrophic versions of man-made climate change remains an open question. The science is settled. Maybe. Let’s take look at some recent studies that aim to explain why projected increases in global average temperature have “paused” even as global greenhouse gas concentrations in […]

    Extreme rainfall has been notably infrequent in the last decade. Further to my earlier post on Phil Jones’ paper on UK precipitation extremes, which showed little trend in extreme rainfall in England & Wales, I have taken a closer look at one of the regions used in the England & Wales Precipitation Series, the Central region, […]

    In 1964, the Beatles took the world by storm, Lyndon Johnson won his second term as President—and NASA launched the first of seven Nimbus spacecraft to study Earth from space. Fifty years later, experts at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder are recovering long-lost images from old […]

  • New Paper: No Global Warming For 19 Years

    • Date: 02/09/14
    • Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun

    The Guardian in 2009 predicted five years of rapid warming: The world faces record-breaking temperatures as the sun’s activity increases, leading the planet to heat up significantly faster than scientists had predicted for the next five years, according to a study. The hottest year on record was 1998, and the relatively cool years since have led […]

    Antarctic sea ice extent continued to set new records in August, finishing the month at 19.154 million sq km, beating the record set last year by 87,000 sq km. http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/index.html http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/archives.html It is worth noting that the climatological maximum, using a 1981-2010 baseline, is 18.581 million sq km, set on average on 22nd September. No […]

  • The (Latest) Answer To the “Pause”

    • Date: 26/08/14
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    In popular science journalism the latest is always the best. With all the explanations for the “pause” in global surface temperatures since 1997 – there are now over 30 of them – it is always the most recently published one that is the “answer.” This time it’s the Atlantic Ocean that’s to blame. A paper published in Science says […]

  • New Study: Increase In Reported UK Flooding Due To Population Growth, Not Global Warming

    • Date: 20/08/14
    • Phys.org

    A rise in the number of reported floods in the UK over the past 129 years can mainly be explained by increased exposure, resulting from urban expansion and population growth, according to new research by the University of Southampton. In one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind, scientists have discovered that although the […]

    The newly proposed revisions to the sunspot record going back to 1749 will have some effect on global warming predictions. The current “pause” in global warming may last for many more years to come, perhaps accompanied by some cooling. Rare spotless day observed on July 18, 2014.
