• Greenland Surface Melt Due To Natural Variability, Not Global Warming – New Study

    • Date: 09/02/13
    • The Hockey Schtick

    Last summer, the mainstream media breathlessly reported that a brief 4-day surface melt over the Greenland ice sheet represented evidence of man-made global warming. However, a paper published today in The Cryosphere finds that “the recent warmer summers over [the Greenland ice sheet] cannot be considered as a long-term climate warming but are more a consequence of [the natural North Atlantic Oscillation] variability […]

  • Met Office Decadal Forecast – 2007 Version

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    If a private organisation had got its forecasts so utterly wrong, heads would be rolling. In the Met Office, they simply cover them up. The latest decadal forecast, above, of global temperatures, issued by the UK Met Office in December, created quite a stir for several reasons, not least the fact that it predicts an […]

  • Antarctic Ice Extent Still Well Above Normal

    • Date: 06/02/13

    Following the records set last September,  Antarctic Sea Ice Extent continues to run well above normal. The average for January was similar to last year, and continues the increasing trend since 1979. Sea Ice Area is also much higher than normal. As at the 4th February, it was 27% above normal.  http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/   http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.anomaly.antarctic.png   […]

    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The UK Met Office and the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia have released the data for December in their Hadcrut3 and Hadcrut4 global temperature datasets. This completes the data for 2012 and allows it to be placed into context with the preceding years. The global temperature standstill continues. 2012 was the […]

  • Solar Activity At End Of 20th Century Was At Highest Levels Of Past 9,000 Years

    • Date: 23/01/13
    • The Hockey Schtick

    A 2012 paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reconstructs solar activity from isotopes in ice cores and tree rings, and finds solar activity at the end of the 20th century was at the highest levels of the past 9,000 years. The paper confirms other peer-reviewed publications indicating that the Sun was particularly active during the 20th […]

  • James Hansen Admits Global Temperature Standstill Is Real

    • Date: 17/01/13
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The GWPF has been right all along. In a new report Hansen, Sato and Ruedy (2013) acknowledge the existence of a standstill in global temperature lasting a decade. This is a welcome contribution to the study of global temperature. When others reached the same conclusion they have been ridiculed; so this admission should provide some […]

  • Arctic Sea Ice Area Back To Normal

    • Date: 17/01/13
    • P Gosslin, No Tricks Zone

    Arctic sea ice extent today is, for all practical purposes, back to normal! That return to normal only means one thing. The “dramatic melt” of August 2012 had to have been reversed completely by an equally dramatic refreeze this winter. Unfortunately we’re not going to find any news stories about that in the media, are we? Chart source: http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/en/home/seaice_extent.htm. Ice […]

  • Met Office Attacks BBC On Global Temperature Standstill

    • Date: 14/01/13
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The reporting of the Met Office’s new half-decadal prediction of global temperatures, which now forecasts no rise in warming over the next five years (in sharp contrast to previous record warm forecasts) – has highlighted two lessons in reporting climate change. One is the violation of the old maxim that people are entitled to their […]
