    Current climate model simulations overestimate future sea-level rise The melting rate of the Antarctic ice sheet is mainly controlled by the increase of ocean temperatures surrounding Antarctica. Using a new, higher-resolution climate model simulation, scientists from Utrecht University found a much slower ocean temperature increase compared to current simulations with a coarser resolution. Consequently, the […]

  • New study ties solar variability to the onset of decadal La Nina events

    • Date: 05/04/21
    • EurekAlert

    A new study shows a correlation between the end of solar cycles and a switch from El Nino to La Nina conditions in the Pacific Ocean, suggesting that solar variability can drive seasonal weather variability on Earth. If the connection outlined in the journal Earth and Space Science holds up, it could significantly improve the predictability of […]

    • Press Release, Global Warming Policy Forum

    London, 16 March: The Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF) has welcomed Government plans to review and reform the role of scientific advice over fears that scientists hold too much power in policy making. According to media reports, Government officials have admitted that they “bowed to” scientists too often, rather than appointing a so-called “red team” […]

  • Dancing to the same tune

    • Date: 08/03/21

    Things may not become so hot after all When scientists create simulations of the climate in their supercomputers, two of the most important model characteristics are the climate sensitivity ­– how much warming you get for a doubling of carbon dioxide – and the cloud–aerosol forcing, the cooling influence you get as a result of […]

    • GWPF & Gaia Fawkes

    Happy International Polar Bear Day! Polar bears numbers are rising. Why is Facebook denying empirical observations? 2020 was another good year for polar bears Ahead of International Polar Bear Day tomorrow, the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) has published its annual report on polar bear numbers over the last twelve months. The report comes bearing good news, as it […]

  • Prophets of Doom & the risks of communicating extreme climate forecasts

    • Date: 26/02/21
    • Carnegie Mellon University

    “It’s like the boy who repeatedly cried wolf. If I observe many successive forecast failures, I may be unwilling to take future forecasts seriously.” For decades, climate change researchers and activists have used dramatic forecasts to attempt to influence public perception of the problem and as a call to action on climate change. These forecasts […]

  • Reducing CO2 in the atmosphere would require COVID-like lockdowns for decades, climate scientists warn

    • Date: 10/02/21
    • CNS News

    “To reduce CO2 concentration in the atmosphere in the long run, restrictions imposed during the corona pandemic would have to be continued for decades. But even this would be far from being sufficient.” A study by researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) in Germany showed that because of the lockdowns imposed by COVID-19, CO2 […]

  • Global warming may have started before the Industrial Revolution, Chinese scientists discover

    • Date: 08/02/21
    • South China Morning Post

    Studies of coral reefs in the Paracel Islands suggest that the South China Sea started warming up in 1825, at the start of the industrial revolution, according to a study by Chinese scientists. Re-dating the start of global warming could have political implications, according to a Chinese government climate expert who was not involved in the Paracel study. That […]
