    Why Karl et al 2015 Doesn’t Eliminate The ‘Hiatus’ Dr David Whitehouse, Global Warming Policy Forum Even accepting the statistical approach taken by Karl et al it is clear that their errors are larger than they realise, and that the trends they obtain depend upon cherry-picked start and end points that include abnormal conditions, i.e. […]

  • Global Warming Pause Due To Natural Variability, New Study Claims

    • Date: 22/07/15
    • Reporting Climate Science

    A slow-down in global warming is not a sign that climate change is ending, university researchers have found. The phenomenon is a natural blip in an otherwise long-term upwards trend, their research shows. In a detailed study of more than 200 years’ worth of temperature data, results backed previous findings that short-term pauses in climate change […]

  • Is A Mini Ice Age Coming? ‘Maunder Minimum’ Spurs Controversy

    • Date: 19/07/15
    • Elizabeth Goldbaum, Live Science

    A scientist who claims waning solar activity in the next 15 years will trigger what some are calling a mini ice age has revived talk about the effects of man-made versus natural disruptors to Earth’s climate. Valentina Zharkova, a professor of mathematics at Northumbria University in the United Kingdom, used a new model of the […]

    Levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have consistently risen over the last 10 years, but global surface temperatures did not follow the same trend. In a study published in the journal Nature Communications, researchers point to volcanic eruptions as a possible reason why global warming has slowed down. The CALIPSO satellite (Source: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/calipso/mission/mission-objectives_prt.htm) Headed […]

  • Solar Activity Blamed For Greenland Cooling

    • Date: 16/07/15
    • American Geophysical Union

    The sun’s activity could be affecting a key ocean circulation mechanism that plays an important role in regulating Greenland’s climate, according to a new study. The phenomenon could be partially responsible for cool temperatures the island experienced in the late 20th century and potentially lead to increased melting of the Greenland ice sheet in the […]

    It has been 117 months since a major hurricane, defined as a Category 3 or above, has made landfall in the continental United States, according to 2015 data from the Hurricane Research Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This is the longest span of time in which no major hurricane has struck the mainland U.S. in NOAA hurricane […]

  • Study Finds Surprisingly High Geothermal Heating Beneath West Antarctic Ice Sheet

    • Date: 15/07/15
    • Lewis Page, The Register

    Geothermal heating from within the Earth’s core – as opposed to the possibly warming air or sea – has been measured beneath the West Antarctic Ice Sheet for the first time ever. And, we are told, it is “surprisingly high.” Image from Jo Nova The West Antarctic sheet is the part of the Antarctic ice cap […]

  • Climate Scare: Earth Heading For ‘Mini Ice Age’ Within 15 Years

    • Date: 11/07/15
    • Dan Hyde, Daily Telegraph

    The earth is 15 years from a “mini ice-age” that will cause bitterly cold winters during which rivers such as the Thames freeze over, scientists have predicted. Solar researchers at the University of Northumbria have created a new model of the sun’s activity which they claim produces “unprecedentedly accurate predictions”. They said fluid movements within […]
