• IPCC’s Climate Link To Hurricanes In Doubt

    • Date: 28/02/10

    Research by hurricane scientists may force the UN’s climate panel to reconsider its claims that greenhouse gas emissions have caused an increase in the number of tropical storms. The benchmark report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said that a worldwide increase in hurricane-force storms since 1970 was probably linked to global warming. […]

  • Sea Level Shenanigans

    • Date: 25/02/10

    Last year the Met Office, the Natural Environmental Research Council and the Royal Society released a joint pre-Copenhagen Conference statement that included as one of its five main scientific points: “There is increasing evidence of continued and accelerating sea-level rises around the world.” At around the same time the Royal Society also said in a […]

  • Past High Temps Not Caused By CO2

    • Date: 13/02/10

    A paper published in the journal Science shows that polar ice sheets were smaller and global temperatures were at least as high (or even higher) 81,000 years ago than they are today, even though the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was much lower. At the height of an ice age, immense volumes of […]

  • Water Vapour and the Recent Global Temperature Hiatus

    • Date: 29/01/10

    Climate scientists, writing in the journal Science, say they may have overlooked a major cause of global warming and cooling. American researchers suggest that the amount of water high in the atmosphere is far more influential on global temperatures than was previously thought. Lead author Dr Susan Solomon, of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric […]

  • Climate Feedback Effect Reduced

    • Date: 28/01/10

    Writing in the journal Nature Dr David Frank of the Swiss Federal Research Institute in Birmensdorf and colleagues have produced the most accurate estimate yet about how rising temperatures will trigger the release of more CO2 from the ocean and land, thus amplifying the greenhouse effect. In the recent past this effect has been said to […]

  • 2009 and Global Warming

    • Date: 27/01/10

    Nasa’s latest press release on climate change says, “Nasa researcher finds last decade was warmest on record, 2009 was one of warmest years.” The statement is worth looking at in detail not only because of the scientific data it uses but also because of the way it portrays it. It also reveals a major difference […]

  • No Conclusions Possible about Himalayan Glaciers

    • Date: 26/01/10

    Despite the IPCC’s statement that they were wrong to include references to the possibility that Himalayan glaciers could vanish by 2035 – an assertion that has no scientific credibility – the question is still being asked: Are the Himalayan glaciers shrinking because of global warming? The answer is not clear. A recent comprehensive report by […]

  • IPCC Wrongly Linked Global Warming To Natural Disasters

    • Date: 24/01/10

    The United Nations climate science panel faces new controversy for wrongly linking global warming to an increase in the number and severity of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods. It based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny — and ignored warnings from scientific advisers that […]
