• Solar Max – So Soon?

    • Date: 08/05/11

    Dr Svalgaard has an interesting annotation on his chart of solar parameters – “Welcome to solar max”: Graphic source:  http://www.leif.org/research/TSI-SORCE-2008-now.png Could it be?  It seems that Solar Cycle 24 had only just begun, with solar minimum only two and a half years ago in December 2008. The first place to confirm that is the solar polar […]

  • 2011: The Temperature So Far

    • Date: 04/05/11

    Global averaged temperature data is now available for the first three months of 2011, 25 per cent of the year’s data. I thought it would be interesting to look at it through the eyes of the HadCrut3 and NasaGiss datasets. Clearly the influence of the cooling La Nina is strong, but there is something else […]

  • Tornadoes Whipped Up By Wind, Not Climate: Officials

    • Date: 30/04/11

    US meteorologists warned Thursday it would be a mistake to blame climate change for a seeming increase in tornadoes in the wake of deadly storms that have ripped through the US south. “If you look at the past 60 years of data, the number of tornadoes is increasing significantly, but it’s agreed upon by the […]

  • A Wetter World During The Eocene

    • Date: 29/04/11

    Without global warming, we would not be here. Tell me again why global warming is so bad? It is well known that water, H2O, is the single most important greenhouse gas. But water also plays a central role in determining the delicate balance of energy and mass that regulates the temperature of Earth. A wide […]

  • Another Thing The IPCC Missed

    • Date: 26/04/11

    The polar regions are the fastest warming regions on our planet. Look at any global map of the way the world has warmed recently and you will see that the reddest regions found anywhere are above Canada and around a bit, and in the Antarctic peninsula. It is, of course, understandable and indeed predictable. Climate […]

  • Is It The Sun Wot Done It?

    • Date: 21/04/11

    If you are not confused about the Sun’s (the star that is not the newspaper as alluded to by the headline) role in influencing the Earth’s climate then perhaps you haven’t been paying attention recently. It is a common story in climate change science. Some researchers will offer definitive statements that the Sun couldn’t possibly […]

    Past Alarm. World’s Coral: 40% gone by 2010 On Monday 22 April 2002 ABC’s flagship current affairs program, 4 Corners, broadcast the following alarming prediction in a report titled: Beautiful one day.

  • Inadequate Models, Inadequate Conclusions

    • Date: 11/04/11

    There is a contradiction at the heart of climate science. It concerns claims that we understand the climate of the past 50 years or so and can reproduce it with computer models. Then we are told we don’t understand, or have even identified, crucial factors affecting climate change so our future projections will be poor. […]
