• Adam Perkins: The Scientific Importance of Free Speech

    • Date: 26/04/18
    • Adam Perkins, Quillette

    Editor’s note: this is a shortened version of a speech that the author was due to give last month at King’s College London which was canceled because the university deemed the event to be too ‘high risk’. A quick Google search suggests that free speech is a regarded as an important virtue for a functional, enlightened society. […]

  • Global Warming Likely to Be 30 to 45 Percent Lower Than Climate Models Project

    • Date: 25/04/18
    • Ronald Bailey, Reason Online

    A new study in the Journal of Climate compares global temperature data trends since 1850 with model outputs. Climate researchers have spent decades trying to pin down the planet’s equilibrium climate sensitivity. Also known by the initials ECS, that figure represents how much it would ultimately increase global average temperatures if the amount of carbon dioxide in the […]

  • New Data Imply Slower Global Warming

    • Global Warming Policy Forum

    London, 24 April — A paper just published by the Journal of Climate concludes that high estimates of future global warming from most computer climate simulations are inconsistent with observed warming since 1850. The implication is that future warming will be 30 to 45% lower than suggested by the simulations.   The study estimates climate […]

  • Corals Have Genes To Survive Another 100-250 Years Of Climate Change

    • Date: 23/04/18
    • Jo Nova

    A new paper finds that there is already enough genetic variety spread across the Great Barrier Reef to adapt to the imagined “unprecedented” warming coming in the next two centuries. We don’t need to rely on random mutations or consider fantasy solutions of man-made oceanic sunscreens, mass sunshades, or giant reef fans. Corals already have […]

  • New Study: Corals Can Withstand Another 100-250 Years Of Climate Change

    • Date: 20/04/18
    • PLOS Genetics,

    Heat-tolerant genes may spread through coral populations fast enough to give the marine creatures a tool to survive another 100-250 years of warming in our oceans. Can genetic adaptation in reef-building corals keep pace with the current rate of sea surface warming? Here we combine population genomics, biophysical modeling, and evolutionary simulations to predict future […]

    • Polar Bear Science

    ‘The loss of credible information is the real harm that has resulted from turning scientific inquiry into an agenda driven exercise … even for a good cause.’ Polar bear specialist Mitch Taylor emailed me and others his response to the New York Times article that appeared Tuesday (10 April) about the Harvey et al. (2018) BioScience paper attacking my scientific integrity. Here it is […]
