• Solar Influences

    • Date: 02/07/10

    In the early 1990’s a paper by Christensen was published that showed a striking correlation between the length of the sun’s sunspot cycle and the global average annual temperature, Fig 1. The shorter the cycle (short cycles are more intense) the higher was the earth’s annual temperature. It seemed to indicate that the sun was […]

  • Ocean Conveyor Belt Dismissed

    • Date: 30/06/10

    After nearly 50 years of acceptance, the theory that a great ocean “conveyor belt” continuously circulates water around the globe in an orderly fashion has been dismissed by a leading oceanographer. According to a review article in the journal Science, a number of studies conducted over the past few years have challenged this paradigm. Oceanographers have […]

  • Arctic Sea-Ice Recovery

    • Date: 23/06/10

    New research suggests that the decrease in sea-ice seen in recent years in the Arctic may not be as bad as some have suggested. Summer Arctic sea-ice has been decreasing in extent for the past three decades, estimated at about 11 per cent a decade, although there are large interannual and regional variations. In September […]

  • Glacier Retreat Not All Due To Mankind

    • Date: 17/06/10

    Glaciers have been in the news a lot recently after the IPCC mistakenly claimed that those in the Himalayas would disappear by 2035.  Despite this it has often been reported in the mainstream media that the Earth’s glaciers are retreating in response to man-made global warming. A new study shows, as is often the case […]

  • Scan Of Arctic Ice Dispels Melting Gloom: Researcher

    • Date: 16/06/10

    An electromagnetic “bird” dispatched to the Arctic for the most detailed look yet at the thickness of the ice has turned up a reassuring picture. The meltdown has not been as dire as some would suggest, said geophysicist Christian Haas of the University of Alberta. His international team flew across the top of the planet […]

  • Matt Ridley: Threat From Ocean Acidification Greatly Exaggerated

    • Date: 15/06/10

    As part of an `interview’ with me, New Scientist published a critique by five scientists of two pages of my book The Rational Optimist. Despite its tone, this critique only confirms the accuracy of each of the statements in this section of the book. After reading their critiques, I stand even more firmly behind my conclusion […]

  • Raining On Boreal Forest Fires

    • Date: 15/06/10

    No presentation on global warming is complete without images of some major wildfire – from day one, the global warming alarmists have insisted that a warmer world will generate more wildfires thereby devastating ecosystems from sea to shining sea. It is an easy sell – higher temperatures will increase potential evapotranspiration, forests dry out, and […]

  • Is 2010 Heading For A Record?

    • Date: 03/06/10

    Today’s Times says, “Nasa analysis showing record global warming undermines the skeptics.” However, a closer look at the information which the Times bases its headline on shows that a combination of selective memory and scientific spin play a large role in arriving at it. The conclusion is based on a new paper written by James […]
