• Jury Still Out On Cause Of Melting Ice Sheets

    • Date: 15/07/13
    • Graham Lloyd, The Australian

    Another decade of satellite observations was needed to determine whether a recent acceleration in ice melt from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets was the result of long-term trends or short-term natural variability. A new paper, published today in Nature Geoscience, said melting ice was the major factor to determine future sea level rises. Some […]

    This week’s World Meterological Organisation’s report “The Global Climate 2001-2010: A Decade Of Climate Extremes,” attracted little publicity. This is probably a good thing as it is one of the most muddled and inaccurate reports I have ever read from an international organisation. It is about ‘climate extremes’ in the last decade which it claims […]

  • Rising CO2 Level Is Greening Planet Earth: New Study

    • Date: 05/07/13
    • Sran Bear, ITWire

    A new study based on satellite observations, just released globally by Australia’s science agency the CSIRO, is likely to cause a stir among anti-carbon dioxide global warming alarmist circles. According to the study, over the past three decades the rise in atmospheric CO2 has contributed significantly to the greening of our planet. Satellite data shows […]

  • Met Office Washout Claims Get A Cool Reception

    • Date: 27/06/13
    • Gabrielle Monaghan, The Sunday Times

    Some climate change scientists are getting hot under the collar over last week’s claims that we are facing a decade of washout summers. One Irish climatologist is predicting that the freak weather conditions may end as soon as next year. Stephen Belcher, head of the Hadley Centre for climate research at the UK’s Met Office, […]

    In the Met Office the UK has the best weather forecaster in the world. Predicting the ever changeable weather for these isles, on the western edge of a continent and the eastern shore of a great ocean, is one of the most challenging topics in science, a challenge that has to be faced every few […]

  • Before And After The Temperature Standstill

    • Date: 11/06/13
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The absence of any significant change in the global annual average temperature over the past 16 years has become one of the most discussed topics in climate science. It has certainly focused the debate about the relative importance of greenhouse gas forcing of the climate versus natural variability. In all this discussion what happened to […]

  • RSS Satellite Data Close To 30-Year Average

    • Date: 09/06/13
    • Paul Homewood, Not a Lot Of People Know That

    It is clear that there is nothing unusual about current global temperatures. I did a quick post yesterday on the May numbers on RSS [satellite data], which fell sharply to 0.139C. The RSS figures are anomalies from the 1979-98 baseline, and I pointed out that, against a baseline of 1981-2010, current temperatures are now only […]
