    Ridd was punished by James Cook University for “not displaying responsibility in respecting the reputations of other colleagues.” The university even warned that if he does this again, he’ll be tried for serious misconduct. The latest perversion in research ethics comes to us from James Cook University in Australia. The Australian has the scoop, but it […]

    When marine scientist Peter Ridd suspected something was wrong with photographs being used to highlight the rapid decline of the Great Barrier Reef, he did what good scientists are supposed to do: he sent a team to check the facts. James Cook University’s Professor Peter Ridd on Townsville’s Strand. Picture: Cameron Laird After attempting to […]

  • New Study ‘Undercuts Climate Alarm’

    • Date: 10/06/16
    • Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times

    Whenever climate models overestimate temperatures linked to rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, scientists have pointed to a convenient fall guy: aerosols, which cool the planet and act as a counterweight to global warming. But what if the cooling influence of aerosols isn’t as powerful as believed? Preliminary findings from a major study by […]

  • Unsettled Science: Antarctic Climate Confusion

    • Date: 31/05/16
    • The American Interest

    A group of scientists have just published a study that tries to explain why Antarctica isn’t warming as predicted, and its ice isn’t melting as climate models say it should be. As Reuters reports, the researchers identified flows of cold, deep water as the primary reason our models are failing down there: A persistent chill […]

  • New Discovery May Scale Back Climate Alarm

    • Date: 27/05/16
    • Seth Borenstein, Associated Press

    A new discovery about how clouds form may scale back some of the more dire predictions about temperature increases caused by man-made global warming. That’s because it implies that a key assumption for making such predictions is a bit off. “What this will do is slightly reduce and sharpen the projections for temperature during the […]

    Our planet’s pre-industrial climate may have been cloudier than presently thought, shows CERN’s CLOUD experiment in two papers published today in Nature (link is external). The CLOUD experiment at CERN has shown that before the industrial revolution the atmosphere was much cloudier than scientists had previously thought (Image: Maximillien Brice/CERN) CLOUD shows that organic vapours […]

  • New Study: Global Warming May Boost Arctic Snowfall And Slow Greenland Ice Sheet Decline

    • Date: 25/05/16
    • Reporting Climate Science

    Global warming may increase Arctic snowfall which could slow the shrinkage of the Greenland ice sheet. A history of Arctic snowfall is hidden in ancient leaf waxes found in lake sediments on Greenland. A surprising trove of data yields indications of increased Arctic snowfall in times of warming. Global warming may boost snowfall in the Arctic, according to […]
