    Taken together, the evidence we present supports the idea that the rapid Antarctic sea ice decline in late 2016 was largely due to natural climate variability. Research has found that natural events could be to blame for Antarctica’s sea ice reaching record lows. Sea ice cover in Antarctica shrank rapidly to a record low in […]

    A researcher has poured water on “emotive” claims that warming seas have spawned an abundance of jellyfish, and instead pointed the finger at a correlation with sunspot activity.

  • New Allegations Of ‘Fishy’ Climate Science

    • Date: 15/01/19
    • Graham Lloyd, The Australian

    Veteran marine scientist Walter Starck says generations of ­researchers have been schooled in a culture wherein threats to the Great Barrier Reef are an unquestionable belief from which all evidence is interpreted. A collage of 50 lionfish was supposed to dampen questions over concerns around the academic rigour of former star James Cook University research student […]

  • Warmer Than Thought? GWPF Science Editor Sceptical About New Ocean-Warming Paper

    • Date: 12/01/19
    • Radio France Internationale (RFI)

    A new report published in the US journal Science, led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, suggests the world’s oceans are warming 40 percent faster than what a UN panel predicted five years ago. Although data collection is more accurate than in the past, some experts advise against jumping to hasty conclusions. About 93 percent […]

  • Climate Models Fail: Climate Warming Experiment Finds Unexpected Results

    • Date: 05/01/19
    • Emily Pontecorvo, American Geophysical Union

    Tropical forests store about a third of Earth’s carbon and about two-thirds of its above-ground biomass. Most climate change models predict that as the world warms, all of that biomass will decompose more quickly, which would send a lot more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. But new research presented at the American Geophysical Union’s 2018 […]

  • New Green Revolution: Engineering Photosynthesis Could Massively Boost Global Food Production

    • Date: 04/01/19
    • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

    Plants convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis; however, most crops on the planet are plagued by a photosynthetic glitch, and to deal with it, evolved an energy-expensive process called photorespiration that drastically suppresses their yield potential. Researchers from the University of Illinois and U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service report in the journal Science that crops […]

    Study shows the Sahara swung between lush and desert conditions every 20,000 years, in sync with monsoon activity. A new analysis of African dust reveals the Sahara swung between green and desert conditions every 20,000 years, in sync with changes in the Earth’s tilt.

  • Inuits Vs Climate Alarmists: The Battle Over Polar Bear Numbers

    • Date: 30/12/18
    • David Rose, Mail on Sunday

    According to scientists, three of Canada’s 13 bear sub-populations are in decline. However, a new Nunavut government bear management plan cites Inuit communities that contradict this: they say none of the bear populations are shrinking, while nine are increasing. On the afternoon of July 3, Aaron Gibbons, a hunter from the Inuit hamlet of Arviat […]
