• South Pole Warming: Natural Variability Vs Computer Models

    • Date: 18/09/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Have you noticed that in many scientific papers there is often a change of direction somewhere in the text when the obvious conclusion emerging from the data is ambushed by an idea the authors just can’t leave out? It happens often in climate change papers when messy real world data that might not be playing […]

  • Traffic Is Not A Key Contributor To Air Pollution, Study Finds

    • Date: 09/09/20
    • Daily Mail

    The significant reduction in vehicle journeys at the start of the Covid-19 lockdown – which saw traffic levels fall by as much as 80 per cent – did not reduce the level of toxic ‘fine’ particles in Scotland’s air, according to experts at the University of Stirling. A new report published today shows that harmful […]

  • Global Warming May Increase Rice Yields, Japanese Scientists Say

    • Date: 02/09/20
    • EurekAlert & American Society of Agronomy

    As global warming continues to affect many regions, rice farmers may have a longer window for growing rice. Rice is the most consumed staple food in the world. It is especially common in Asia, where hunger concerns are prevalent. Rice is classified as an annual plant, which means it completes its life cycle within one […]

  • Mining For Renewables Threatens Biodiversity, Scientists Warn

    • Date: 02/09/20
    • The Daily Telegraph

    Mining for renewable energy materials could threaten biodiversity, researchers have found.  Scientists at the University of Queensland, Brisbane found a high degree of overlap between areas used for mining essential minerals like lithium, which is used for car batteries, and areas with high levels of biodiversity as yet untouched by industry. Conservationists are “often naive to the […]

  • Ross McKitrick: New Confirmation That Climate Models Overstate Atmospheric Warming

    • Date: 26/08/20
    • Ross McKitrick, Climate Etc.

    Two new peer-reviewed papers from independent teams confirm that climate models overstate atmospheric warming and the problem has gotten worse over time, not better. The papers are Mitchell et al. (2020) “The vertical profile of recent tropical temperature trends: Persistent model biases in the context of internal variability” Environmental Research Letters, and McKitrick and Christy (2020)“Pervasive warming bias in […]

    • Professor Valentina Zharkova

    Last week I published  a new paper, using the real ephemeris of the daily Earth-Sun distances, confirming that the results reported in our paper Zharkova et al, 2019 are correct after all. The results clearly show that in spite the Earth maintaining a well stable elliptic orbit about the barycentre, the Sun’s position is shifting towards the […]

    Forecasters are now calling for an increased chance of La Niña this autumn, which could enhance an already overly active hurricane season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), issued a La Niña Watch in July. Now, the agency has issued an update further showing their confidence that La Niña could form this autumn. “The La […]

  • Growth Of Antarctic Sea Ice Due To Fewer Clouds, Chinese Scientists Find

    • Date: 11/08/20
    • Xinhua News Agency

    Researchers have discovered that lower cloud coverage in the Antarctic can promote sea ice growth. Unlike the rapid decline of Arctic sea ice in the warming climate, Antarctic sea ice witnessed a modest extension over the past four decades, according to the paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres. The researchers from China and the […]
