• 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. […]

  • Heat Rises In The Search For Temperature Data Truth

    • Date: 07/04/11

    When it comes to climate change either you’re with us, or you’re on the other side. Well at least that’s how it appears at times. So what happens when someone from one camp says something that appears to support the other? In the last few days, pro- and anti-climate change blogs have gone into overdrive […]

  • Don’t Ignore Nature

    • Date: 28/03/11

    How many times have you seen, read or heard some climate ‘expert’ or other say that mankind’s greenhouse gas emissions are largely responsible for the unprecedented warming we have seen over the past century, and especially what we have seen over the past 30 years. It is as if to some that nature has stepped […]

  • Climate In A Spin

    • Date: 21/03/11

    If one was asked to list the natural factors causing variations on the global temperature of the Earth over timescales from months to millennia I think most would write down such things as the oceans, atmosphere, sun, Earth’s orbit and their associated timescales. How many would, I wonder, include changes in the rotation of the […]

  • What Caused The Spotless Sun?

    • Date: 17/03/11

    Beginning in 2008, sunspots almost completely disappeared for two years. Solar activity dropped to hundred-year lows and the Sun’s magnetic field weakened, allowing cosmic rays to penetrate the Solar System in record numbers. More troubling, Earth’s upper atmosphere cooled and collapsed by an unprecedented amount. Solar physicists openly wondered what was happening to our neighborhood […]

  • Ice, Ice, Maybe

    • Date: 10/03/11

    The message from Nasa in the past few days is that melting ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland will make a greater contribution to sea level rise, beyond that estimated by the IPCC, because these ice sheets are melting at an accelerating rate. There have been over fifty news items written as a result of […]

  • Being Sensitive About Climate

    • Date: 03/03/11

    How often have you heard in a debate about climate change that the fundamental problem is so simple that only the mendacious or ignorant would take issue with it? If the debate is on TV the protagonist will allow themselves a condescending smile and perhaps an exhalation of exasperation. We have known about the Greenhouse […]

  • Global Warming Is Good For Frogs

    • Date: 01/03/11

    A couple of months ago we featured some recent scientific studies that showed that the future for frogs was apparently not going to be as bleak once projected—especially when it comes to the impacts of global warming. Our article “A Frog Revival” was particularly popular, so we decided to highlighted some other fairly recent scientific papers that conclude […]
