• James Hansen 1986: Within 15 Years Temps Will be Hotter Than Past 100,000 Years

    • Date: 06/01/11

    25 meter rises in sea level, tropical temperatures in England, and widespread crop failures are only some of the predictions from Dr James Hansen. Here’s a selection of his predictions from the archives. This one from 1986 on temperature increase in America: Hansen said the average U.S. temperature had risen from one to two degrees […]

  • Global Warming Temperature Rise May Be Less Than Predicted

    • Date: 31/12/10

      Global warming during the twenty first century may be significantly less than that forecast by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), according to a new paper. Physicist and Arctic research expert Syun-Ichi Akasofu of the International Arctic Research Center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in the US predicts that the temperature in […]

  • Clouds From Both Sides

    • Date: 23/12/10

    Clouds, their effect on climate and how to treat them in climate models, is one of the most pressing problems in climate science and a great limit to our understanding of the workings of our planet and our ability to make predictions. Of all the problems concerning clouds the question of cloud feedback is one […]

  • Trends, Rhythms & Aberrations: The Mechanisms of Climate Change

    • Date: 15/12/10

    Much has be written and even more said about stopping climate change. The total foolishness of such a quest is obvious to anyone with even the most cursory understanding of Earth’s climate over the Past 65 million years. The more science learns about the ever changing nature of climate the more capricious nature appears and […]

  • 2010: An Even More Unexceptional Year

    • Date: 08/12/10

    Following my analysis of 2010 based on Met Office temperature data it has been suggested that I perform my analysis on other global temperature data sets that are more comprehensive. It has also suggested that when I do I will arrive at a different result, and that all of the months in 2010 have been […]

  • 2010 – An Unexceptional El Nino Year

    • Date: 03/12/10

    If the media headlines are to be believed 2010 is heading to be either the warmest or in the top three warmest years since the instrumental global temperature records began 150 years ago, and proof that the world is getting ever warmer. But looking more closely at the data reveals a different picture. 2010 will […]

  • Warming Underestimated – Does It Matter?

    • Date: 30/11/10

    It’s a curious phenomenon that examples of climate ‘forcing’ always seem to occur just before big environmental summits, and that the forcing only ever goes in one direction. The UN Climate Change meeting at Cancun this week is no exception. The UK’s Met Office, among others, released a series of statements and in the Met […]

  • Antarctic Ice Shelf More Stable Than Thought

    • Date: 28/11/10

    The vast ice sheets of the Antarctic may be more stable than we thought, because a key piece of physics has been overlooked. Glaciologists have long worried that the West Antarctic ice sheet will collapseover the next few centuries, raising sea levels dramatically. At present the ice sheet is grounded on underwater islands, which insulate some of the […]
