    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt will soon end his agency’s use of “secret science” to craft regulations. “We need to make sure their data and methodology are published as part of the record,” Pruitt said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Otherwise, it’s not transparent. It’s not objectively measured, […]

  • Grand Solar Minimum Could Cause Global Cooling

    • Date: 18/03/18
    • Simon Constable, Forbes

    The question is whether we will enter another grand solar minimum just like the Maunder minimum which, if history is a guide, would mean a period of much colder weather winters and summers. Once upon a time, people would worship the sun as a deity. It was with good reason that they did so for […]

    Cosmic rays are bad–and they’re getting worse. That’s the conclusion of a new paper just published in the research journal Space Weather. The authors, led by Prof. Nathan Schwadron of the University of New Hampshire, show that radiation from deep space is dangerous and intensifying faster than previously expected. The story begins four years ago when Schwadron and colleagues […]

  • New Study: Cooling Cloud Cycle Caused Global Warming Hiatus

    • Date: 10/03/18
    • Jun Yin and Amilcare Porporato, Princeton University

    Reinforcement of Climate Hiatus by Decadal Modulation of Daily Cloud Cycle Based on observations and climate model results, it has been suggested that the recent slowdown of global warming trends (climate hiatus), which took place in the early 2000s, might be due to enhanced ocean heat uptake. Here we suggest an alternative hypothesis which, at least in part, […]

    So-called ‘clean’ energy source has even higher emissions than fossil fuels. Photo: Reservoir of Nam Theun 2 hydropower project in Lao PDR, which is one of the few reservoirs with GHG emission measurements in the Mekong Region. The reservoir has surface area of 450 km2 and the power station has power generating capacity of 1075 […]

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    UAH report another drop in global temperatures for February, following the sharp fall in January. http://www.drroyspencer.com/2018/03/uah-global-temperature-update-for-february-2018-0-20-deg-c/ It is likely we are just starting to see the effects of La Nina, which began last September. There is generally a lag of between 3 and 6 months before atmospheric temperatures are impacted. Nevertheless, so far La Nina […]

  • Scientific Controversy Over African Rainforest Crisis

    • Date: 01/03/18
    • Ars Technica

    Part of the controversy is due to the uncertainty and limited resolution of paleo-climatic dating methods, whether it’s radiocarbon dating or counting layers in a sediment core. Three thousand years ago, dense old-growth rainforests covered most of central Africa. But around 2,600 years ago, an event that ecologists call the Late Holocene Rainforest Crisis occurred, […]
