• Ice Data Now Open To All

    • Date: 08/02/11

    CryoSat detects leads in sea ice Scientists can now tap into a flow of new data that will help to determine exactly how Earth’s ice is changing. This information from ESA’s CryoSat mission is set to make a step change in our understanding of the complex relationship between ice and climate. Considering the loss of […]

  • The Temperature of 2010

    • Date: 02/02/11

    Now that the relevant data for the temperature of the Earth’s surface for the past year are available, it is instructive to examine the claims made by some that it was the hottest year ever, and claims made by others that it was in second place. One way of looking at the year’s data we […]

  • That Wicked Weather

    • Date: 28/01/11

    With massive floods in Australia and Brazil, and bitter winter weather across the Northern Hemisphere, climate change alarmists have been quick to blame the severe weather on global warming. The fact that such weather is well within normal variation has not stopped the catastrophists from claiming vindication. No matter that those who study the Pacific […]

  • Mid-Atlantic Ocean Cooling Down

    • Date: 26/01/11

    The water temperature in the subtropical Atlantic Ocean has cooled down since 1998, oceanographers report. Measurements since 1957 had shown a rise of more than ¼ of a degree up to that point, but between 1998 and 2006 the ocean stopped warming and cooled by 0.15°C in the same area. The measurements of sea temperature […]

  • Precipitation, Convection & Climate Change

    • Date: 25/01/11

    The primary conclusion of this investigation is that rainfall, even under an aggressive and unproven IPCC global warming scenario, will not change in any significant way. Even using the same wonky climate models as the IPCC AR4 report, there is no reason to expect crippling droughts or massive deluges because of global warming. An increase […]

  • Glaciers Largely Stable In One Range Of Himalayas

    • Date: 24/01/11

    An important portion of the Himalaya’s glacier cover is currently stable and, thanks to an insulating layer of debris, may be even growing, a new study finds. The study’s conclusion contradicts a portion of the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report that had to be retracted last year because it could not be substantiated. […]

  • Erroneous Lessons from Earth’s Past

    • Date: 21/01/11

    Climate alarmists have been slow to learn that their over-reliance on computer models and unproven theories has harmed their public credibility. In an attempt to counter the richly deserved bad press that climate science has been garnering these days, a number of global warming true believers are trying a different, more fact based approach to […]

  • Carbon From The Deeps

    • Date: 17/01/11

    Scientists believe that carbon released from the ocean floor played a key role in past episodes of climate change. Around 55 million years ago, the break-up of the northeast Atlantic continents was associated with the injection of large amounts of molten magma into seafloor sediments. Formation of the North Atlantic basalts heated the carbon-rich sediments, […]
