    • Ross McKitrick, Climate Etc.

    Two new peer-reviewed papers from independent teams confirm that climate models overstate atmospheric warming and the problem has gotten worse over time, not better. The papers are Mitchell et al. (2020) “The vertical profile of recent tropical temperature trends: Persistent model biases in the context of internal variability” Environmental Research Letters, and McKitrick and Christy (2020)“Pervasive warming bias in […]

    Last week I published  a new paper, using the real ephemeris of the daily Earth-Sun distances, confirming that the results reported in our paper Zharkova et al, 2019 are correct after all. The results clearly show that in spite the Earth maintaining a well stable elliptic orbit about the barycentre, the Sun’s position is shifting towards the […]

    Forecasters are now calling for an increased chance of La Niña this autumn, which could enhance an already overly active hurricane season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), issued a La Niña Watch in July. Now, the agency has issued an update further showing their confidence that La Niña could form this autumn. “The La […]

  • Growth Of Antarctic Sea Ice Due To Fewer Clouds, Chinese Scientists Find

    • Date: 11/08/20
    • Xinhua News Agency

    Researchers have discovered that lower cloud coverage in the Antarctic can promote sea ice growth. Unlike the rapid decline of Arctic sea ice in the warming climate, Antarctic sea ice witnessed a modest extension over the past four decades, according to the paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres. The researchers from China and the […]

  • Emperor Penguins Are Thriving – Climate Models Are Killing Them Off

    • Date: 08/08/20
    • Press Release, Global Warming Policy Forum

    Emperor penguin populations have been increasing in recent years, yet worst-case climate modellers predict their extinction by 2100. It is time to stop applying the implausible RCP8.5 scare-scenarios. A new study of emperor penguins (Aptenodytes fosteri) populations in 2019 found that it had grown by up to 10% since 2009. The largest of all penguin species […]

  • Agriculture May Already By Climate Neutral

    • Date: 29/07/20
    • Linköping University

    IPPC does not take photosynthesis into account when measuring carbon footprint of agriculture industry. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) claims that agriculture is one of the main sources of greenhouse gases, and is thus by many observers considered as a climate villain. This conclusion, however, is based on a paradigm that can […]

  • Flawed Models Are Throwing Off Climate Forecasts Of Rain And Storms

    • Date: 29/07/20
    • Science Magazine

    Efforts to attribute specific weather events to global warming, now much in vogue, are rife with errors Climate scientists can confidently tie global warming to impacts such as sea-level rise and extreme heat. But ask how rising temperatures will affect rainfall and storms, and the answers get a lot shakier. For a long time, researchers chalked […]
