• James Hansen Admits Global Temperature Standstill Is Real

    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

    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 […]

  • Climate Revision Validates Sceptics

    • Date: 11/01/13
    • Graham Lloyd, The Australian

    As Australians sweltered through a record-breaking summer heatwave this week, one of the world’s leading scientific bodies revised down its five-year projection for the world’s average temperature. The revision, slipped quietly into the public domain on Christmas Eve by Britain’s Met Office, has fuelled a significant and growing debate about what exactly happened to global warming.

  • The Guardian’s Verdict: Objection, M’Lud!

    • Date: 10/01/13
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    I always find it rather worrying when a journalist arrives at a verdict. An assessment or an analysis perhaps, but a verdict sounds too dogmatic, to judicial for me, and a little too self-important. It is especially dangerous in science and in a field as contentious as climate change where to many opinions, facts and […]

  • Met Office Says No Warming Before 2017: How Did The Media Do?

    • Date: 09/01/13
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The fact that the UK Met Office had changed its near-term global warming forecast quietly on Christmas Eve was noticed by some Met Office watchers, especially the ever-interesting Tallbloke’s Talkshop website which reported it on January 5th. This piece started a flurry of blog comments. We at the GWPF republished the story the same day on […]

  • Met Office Forecasts No Global Temperature Rise

    • Date: 07/01/13
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The UK Met Office has revised its global temperature predictions as a result of a new version of its climate model and climate simulations using it. It now believes that global temperatures up to 2017 will most likely be 0.43 deg C above the 1971 -2000 average, with an error of +/- 0.15 deg C. […]

  • Reality Check: England And Wales Rainfall Trends

    • Date: 05/01/13
    • Andrew Montford, Bishop Hill

    In the wake of the “more rain and more intense rain” story, Doug Keenan sends this graph of England & Wales rainfall records for 1766-2012 (click for larger; data here).   Let’s just say the trend towards more rainfall is not obvious. (As indeed is any trend towards less rainfall, which is said to be more […]
