    • The Hockey Schtick

    A paper published today in The Cryosphere finds Antarctica has been gaining surface ice and snow accumulation over the past 150+ years, and finds acceleration in some areas noting, “a clear increase in accumulation of more than 10% has occurred in high Surface Mass Balance coastal regions and over the highest part of the East Antarctic ice […]

    • The Hockey Schtick

    A paper published today in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology reconstructs ocean temperatures from corals in the South Pacific and shows temperatures at the end of the record in the year 2000 were not unusual, unnatural, or unprecedented over the past 350 years, and were as warm or warmer in the 1600’s during the Little Ice Age.

  • New Paper: Arctic Temperatures Are Not Unusual, Unnatural, Or Unprecedented

    • Date: 19/02/13
    • The Hockey Schtick

    A paper published today in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology reconstructs Arctic temperatures from shells collected from Iceland and demonstrates that temperatures have been warmer than the present over much of the past 500 years. The paper adds to many other peer-reviewed studies demonstrating that current Arctic temperatures are not unusual, unnatural, or unprecedented. Shell growth, a proxy for temperature, has […]

    • Ned Rozell, Alaska Dispatch

    Fairbanks isn’t the only chilly place in Alaska. Average temperatures at 19 of 20 long-term National Weather Service stations displayed a cooling trend from 2000 to 2010, according a recent study written up by Gerd Wendler, Blake Moore and Lian Chen of the Alaska Climate Research Center.  The rest of the world has not been going […]

    • Steven Goddard, Real Science

    With a few weeks of growth still to occur, the Arctic has blown away the previous record for ice gain this winter. This is only the third winter in history when more than 10 million km² of new ice has formed. arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/timeseries.anom.1979-2008 Real Science, 12 February 2013

    Cries of “Jellypocalypse” are premature at best—it is just the humble jellyfish doing what they have been doing since before the Phanerozoic Eon began. Those who see the climate change bogeyman hiding behind every unexpected act of nature should take heart. As the simple jellyfish proves, life is possible without a brain. A Japanese fishing trawler capsizes […]

  • 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 […]
