• Cooling The Polar Bear Spin

    • Date: 28/07/12

    I’ve had quite enough of the obfuscation of facts and model-based extrapolations into the future with regards to polar bears. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who is interested in what polar bears are doing nowand, as much as can be determined, get some understanding of what the biological, geological and evolutionary history of […]

  • Why Are Sea Levels So Low?

    • Date: 26/07/12

    The last interglacial period (LIG)—the Eemian—is commonly believed by scientists to have been warmer than the current Holocene interglacial. Along with that balmier climate there is evidence that sea levels were significantly higher than today. Previous studies have pegged Eemian sea levels at 4 to 6m higher than today. Recently, a new investigation raises that […]

  • New Research In Antarctica Shows CO2 Follows Temperature “By A Few Hundred Years At Most”

    • Date: 24/07/12

    The question of “which comes first, the temperature or the CO2 rise?” has been much like the proverbial “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” question. This seems to settle it – temperature came first, followed by an increase in CO2 outgassing from the ocean surrounding Antarctica. “Our analyses of ice cores from the […]

  • New Paper Finds Cloudiness In Spain Has Significantly Decreased Since 1960

    • Date: 22/07/12

    A paper published today in Climate of the Past finds that Total Cloud Cover (TCC) has significantly decreased over Spain by about 4% since 1960, the same period during which the IPCC claims there is no explanation other than man-made greenhouse gases to account for global warming. Poorly-understood natural fluctuations in cloud cover could alone account for […]

  • Smaller 20th Century Warming: Hotter Medieval Warm Period

    • Date: 17/07/12

    Anyone who has seen the raw temperature output from a weather station must have wondered at the marvel of averages. The output is all over the place – large fluctuations in temperature from hour to hour and day and night. Yet from those measurements the result is just one number – the monthly average – […]

  • New Paper: IPCC Models Exaggerate Warming From Water Vapor

    • Date: 17/07/12

    The theory of global warming claims that a trivial warming from CO2 levels will result in more water vapor in the atmosphere and an alleged ‘runaway greenhouse effect‘. However, satellite observations published in a new paper show that global water vapor has instead declined over the past 12 years despite steadily rising concentrations of CO2. These […]

  • Duncan Steel: Climate Change And Earth’s Changing Orbit

    • Date: 13/07/12

    If you read the right newspapers you will have noticed over the past week numerous reports concerning a paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change, written by Jan Esper of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, and eleven colleagues from other institutions in Germany, Switzerland, Finland and Scotland. What this team has done is […]

  • ‘Abrupt Increase’ In CO2 Absorption Stuns Scientists

    • Date: 12/07/12

    Scientists have discovered that plants, trees and soil have abruptly increased their atmospheric carbon dioxide intake in the last 20 years. The land biosphere was taking in about one billion tonnes of carbon per year since 1988, equal to about 10 per cent of the global fossil fuel emissions for 2010. “We were completely taken by […]
