    The researchers found that when compared to observations, almost every CMIP5 model fails, no matter whether the multidecadal variability is assumed to be forced or internal. The basic questions for climate models is whether they realistically simulate observations, and to what extent can future climate change be predicted? It’s an important concept as political and […]

    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    We are going to be fed a regular diet of global temperature reports in the run-up to the COP26 climate talks later this year. They’re all going to be based on model projections of what’s likely to happen in coming years. The Paris Agreement’s 1.5 °C climate target is in focus, but whether it be exceeded […]

  • Are greenhouse gas emissions shrinking the stratosphere?

    • Date: 13/05/21
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Relax. Contrary to some reports climate change is not going to cause satellites to fall out of orbit or your satnav to malfunction. According to scientists led by Charles University in Prague writing in a paper just accepted by the journal Environmental Research Letters the stratosphere is shrinking. They say they have found a “substantial […]

  • David Whitehouse: Science needs more whistleblowers and more questioning

    • Date: 07/05/21
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    The emerging doubts, reported in the journal Science, surrounding the quality of research into the effects of ocean acidification on fish behaviour reveal fault lines not only in the culture of science but also in the practice of science journalism. In a superb article science journalist Martin Enserink details how dozens of papers linking the […]

    • Press Release, Global Warming Policy Foundation

    Observational data contradicts claims of worsening weather events  London, 22 April: A new report published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation reviews extreme weather trends around the world in 2020 and finds little evidence of deterioration. The report, by physicist Dr Ralph Alexander, also looks at how extreme weather has been reported by others and […]

  • Solar Activity and the next Maunder Minimum

    • Date: 20/04/21
    • John Maunder, SunLive

    NASA’s forecast for solar cycle 25 reveals it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. The ‘Maunder Minimum’ is the name given to the period from 1645 to 1715 when the number of sunspots – ‘storms’ on the sun – became almost zero. The period is named after the solar astronomer Edward Walter […]

  • The Sun’s climate role confirmed

    • Date: 06/04/21
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    “The scientific community has been unclear on the role that solar variability plays in influencing weather and climate events here on Earth. This study shows there’s reason to believe it absolutely does and why the connection may have been missed in the past.” If you ask most climate scientists, they will tell you that the […]

  • UAH Global Temperature Update for March 2021: -0.01 deg. C

    • Date: 03/04/21
    • Roy Spencer

    The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for March, 2021 was -0.01 deg. C, down substantially from the February, 2021 value of +0.20 deg. C. REMINDER: We have changed the 30-year averaging period from which we compute anomalies to 1991-2020, from the old period 1981-2010. This change does not affect the temperature […]
