    • The Australian

    A catastrophic rise in sea levels is unlikely this century, with ­recent experience falling within the range of natural variability over the past several thousand years, according to a report on peer-­reviewed studies by US climate scientist Judith Curry. Writing in The Australian today, Dr Curry says predictions of a 21st-century sea level rise of more than […]

    • Centre for Excellence in Space Science India

    Two Indian scientists predict that the next sunspot cycle will not be significant. Their ensemble forecast surprisingly suggests it could even be stronger than the cycle which is just ending Highlights 1. Research predicts space environmental conditions over the next decade would be similar or slightly harsher compared to the last decade ruling out imminent […]

  • Roger Pielke Jr Raises Questions Surrounding Conflicts Of Interest In Climate Research

    • Date: 07/12/18
    • Western Wire

    Lax standards of conflict of interest disclosures among climate scientists create “unnecessary vulnerabilities” and should be avoided, according to University of Colorado, Boulder professor and political scientist Roger Pielke, Jr. “You certainly don’t want advisors—scientific advisors—to have the perception, at a minimum that they’re receiving funding from those that they’re providing advice to,” Pielke told Western […]

  • The Simon Abundance Index: A New Way to Measure Availability of Resources

    Julian Simon’s revolutionary insights with regard to the mutually beneficial interaction between population growth and availability of natural resources are counterintuitive, but they are real. Are we running out of resources? That’s been a hotly debated question since the publication of Paul Ehrlich’s The Population Bomb in 1968. The Stanford University biologist warned that population growth would […]

  • Stratospheric Aerosol Injection Much Cheaper Than Decarbonisation

    • Date: 29/11/18
    • Institute of Physics

    A program to reduce Earth’s heat capture by injecting aerosols into the atmosphere from high-altitude aircraft is possible, inexpensive, and would be unlikely to remain secret. Those are the key findings of new research published today in Environmental Research Letters, which looked at the capabilities and costs of various methods of delivering sulphates into the […]

    The remarkable growth of Arctic ice extent continues with a new development yesterday, as shown by the graph below. Note that as of day 330, Nov. 26, 2018, Arctic ice extent exceeds the 11 year average reached at month end.  At 11.08M km2, it is 400k km2 above the average for day 330.  It also […]

    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    There’s been “no trend” in the number and intensity of hurricanes hitting the continental U.S. and the normalized damages caused by such storms over the past 117 years, according to a new study. “Consistent with observed trends in the frequency and intensity of hurricane landfalls along the continental United States since 1900, the updated normalized […]

  • Nic Lewis: More Problems With Resplandy et al.

    • Date: 23/11/18
    • Nic Lewis, Climate Etc

    There have been further interesting developments in this story Introduction The Resplandy et al. (2018) ocean heat uptake study (henceforth Resplandy18) is based on measured changes in the O2/N2 ratio (δO2/N2) and CO2 atmospheric concentration. These are combined to produce an estimate (ΔAPOObs) of changes in atmospheric potential oxygen since 1991, from which they isolate a component (ΔAPOClimate) that […]
