• Hydroclimate Of The Northeastern United States Is Highly Sensitive To Solar Activity

    • Date: 29/02/12

    A paper published today in the journal Geophysical Research Letters examines climate proxies over the past 6800 years and finds that the hydroclimate (droughts & floods) of the Northeastern U.S. is “highly sensitive” to solar activity (“solar forcing”). The paper states, “The Sun may be entering a weak phase, analogous to the Maunder minimum, which […]

  • Arctic Sea Ice Decline May Be Driving Snowy Winters Seen in Recent Years

    • Date: 28/02/12

    A new study led by the Georgia Institute of Technology provides further evidence of a relationship between melting ice in the Arctic regions and widespread cold outbreaks in the Northern Hemisphere. The study’s findings could be used to improve seasonal forecasting of snow and temperature anomalies across northern continents. Since the level of Arctic sea […]

  • Ancient Arabic Writings Piece Together Past Climate

    • Date: 28/02/12

    Ancient manuscripts written by Arabic scholars can provide valuable meteorological information to help modern scientists reconstruct the climate of the past, a new study has revealed. The research, published in Weather, analyses the writings of scholars, historians and diarists in Iraq during the Islamic Golden Age between 816-1009 AD for evidence of abnormal weather patterns. Reconstructing […]

  • Calm Opposition To The Storm Of Climate Change

    • Date: 26/02/12

    I don’t blame people, in general, for having been duped by the global warming hysteria. It’s based on some accurate facts. This past week Dr. Richard Lindzen spoke [at an event in] the House of Commons on the issue of global warming. Lindzen is a professor at MIT in the Departement of Earth, Atmospheric and […]

  • Certain Of The Past: Doubtful Of The Future

    • Date: 23/02/12

      The recent advice given to the UK Government by the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) in a report called “Climate Variability and Weather,” highlighted an interesting dilemma facing anyone trying to predict climate change in the future, and attribute causes to climate change observed in the recent past. The summary of the […]

  • Ocean Heat Content And Climate Shifts

    • Date: 22/02/12

    I am pleased to announce a very important new paper which effectively uses the ocean heat data analyses to assess shifts in the Earth’s radiation imbalance. The paper is D.H. Douglass, R.S. Knox, 2012: Ocean heat content and Earth’s radiation imbalance. II. Relation to climate shifts. Physics Letters A.http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.physleta.2012.02.027 [see the full paper on David’s website here] The abstract […]

  • New Peer-Reviewed Paper On Global Tropical Cyclone Landfalls

    • Date: 16/02/12

    Increase in economic damage as a result of tropical cyclone landfalls can be explained entirely by societal changes (such as increasing wealth, structures, population, etc) rather than by changes in annual storm frequency or intensity. We have a new paper just accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate, titled “Historical Global Tropical Cyclone Landfalls.” […]

  • French researchers complete new simulations for the next IPCC report

    • Date: 15/02/12

    The French climatology community has just completed a major exercise in the simulation of past and future climate conditions on a global scale. This new body of data confirms the conclusions of the most recent report by the IPCC (4) (2007) on future changes in temperature and rainfall. By 2100, average global temperatures are expected […]
