    We are now at the very end of the weakest solar cycle (#24) in more than a century and are rapidly approaching the next solar minimum In the long term, the sun is the main driver of all weather and climate and multi-decadal trends in solar activity can have major impacts on oceanic and atmospheric […]

  • New Study Reveals Alpine Glaciers Started Melting Much Earlier Than Thought

    • Date: 22/10/18
    • Swiss Info

    New research by a Swiss institute has thrown doubt on the widespread assumption that the melting of Alpine glaciers began with the onset of industrialisation in the middle of the 19th century. To date, writes Swiss public broadcaster SRF, many researchers have assumed that glacial retreat began around 1860 with the increased volumes of soot […]

    • The University Network

    Current climate change predictions in the UK and parts of Europe may be inaccurate, a study conducted by researchers from the University of Lincoln, UK, and the University of Liège, Belgium, suggests. Existing computer model simulations have failed to properly include air pressure changes that have occured in the Greenland region throughout the past 30 years. […]

    LONDON, Oct 17 (Reuters) – A respected science journal is to withdraw a much-cited review of evidence on an illness known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) amid fierce criticism and pressure from activists and patients. The decision, described by the scientists involved as “disproportionate and poorly justified”, is being seen as a victory for activists […]

  • Richard Lindzen: ‘Warming Of Any Significance Ceased 20 Years Ago’

    • Alison Bevege, Daily Mail

    Professor Lindzen said the IPCC report this week had reduced the alleged tipping point from 2C to 1.5C because there had been no significant warming for 20 years. ‘Warming of any significance ceased about 20 years ago, and 2C warming was looking increasingly unlikely.’ Professor Richard Lindzen slammed conventional thinking on global warming as ‘nonsense’ […]

  • Large-Scale US Wind Power Would Cause Warming That Would Take Roughly a Century to Offset

    • Date: 11/10/18
    • Cell Press

    Researchers report the most accurate modelling yet of how increasing wind power would affect climate, finding that large-scale wind power generation would warm the Continental United States 0.24 degrees Celsius because wind turbines redistribute heat in the atmosphere. “Wind turbines generate electricity but also alter the atmospheric flow,” says first author Lee Miller. “Those effects […]

    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change’s (IPCC) newly-released climate report, once again, found little to no evidence global warming caused many types of extreme weather events to increase. “The IPCC once again reports that there is little basis for claiming that drought, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes have increased, much less increased due to” greenhouse […]

  • How Volcanic Eruptions Can Lie About Their Age, And What It Means For Paleo-Climatology

    • Date: 05/10/18
    • Richard N Holdaway, Ben Kennedy and Brendan Duffy, The Conversation

    The dilution of atmospheric carbon-14 by volcanic carbon dioxide emissions made the radiocarbon dates for tree material from the Taupo eruption appear somewhere between 40 and 300 years too old. Just like a teenager wanting to be older, volcanoes can lie about their age, or at least about their activities. For kids, it might be […]
