• Groundwater Reserves In Africa More Resilient To Climate Change Than Thought

    • The Conservation

    The findings of a new study challenge predictions from computer models that freshwater will become scarcer in African drylands as climate change reduces rainfall. Groundwater reserves in Africa are estimated to be 20 times larger than the water stored in lakes and reservoirs above ground. These are the freshwater stores that flow in rocks and sediment […]

  • For Most Of The Last 10,000 Years, Greenland Ice Sheet Was Smaller Than Today

    Most of the ice currently melting on Greenland only formed during the last few hundred years. A new paper (Axford et al., 2019) reveals NW Greenland’s “outlet glaciers were smaller than today from ~9.4 to 0.2 ka BP” (9,400 to 200 years before 1950), and that “most of the land-based margin reached its maximum Holocene […]

  • July 2019 Was Not the Warmest on Record

    July 2019 was probably the 4th warmest of the last 41 years. Global “reanalysis” datasets need to start being used for monitoring of global surface temperatures. We are now seeing news reports (e.g. CNN, BBC, Reuters) that July 2019 was the hottest month on record for global average surface air temperatures. One would think that the very best […]

  • Volcanoes Shaped the Climate Before Humankind

    • University of Bern

    Five large volcanic eruptions occurred in the early 19th century. They caused cooling and – as a study led by the University of Bern shows – to drying in the monsoon regions and glaciers growing in the Alps. The study shows that the pre-industrial climate was not constant: if one takes this cold period as […]

    July 16, 2019: Note to astronauts: 2019 is not a good year to fly into deep space. In fact, it’s shaping up to be one of the worst of the Space Age. The reason is, the solar cycle. One of the deepest Solar Minima of the past century is underway now. As the sun’s magnetic field […]

  • No Evidence That Climate Change Causes Weather Extremes: Hurricanes

    • Date: 16/07/19
    • Ralph B. Alexander, Science Under Attack

    It’s clear that the frequency of landfalling hurricanes of any strength (categories 1 through 5) hasn’t changed in the nearly 50 years since 1970 – during a time when the globe warmed by approximately 0.6 degrees Celsius. This third post in our series on the spurious links between climate change and extreme weather examines the […]

  • Antarctic Ice Surprise

    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Nature is complicated and often contradictory. Even with such an all-encompassing theory like Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) not every result and observation points in the same direction. It’s these observations that contain new information, especially in the netherlands between AGW forcing and natural climate variability. The recent decline in Antarctic sea ice is remarkable given […]

  • Scientists Baffled As Antarctic Ice Goes From Record High To Record Low

    • Date: 03/07/19
    • New Scientist

    Decades of expanding sea ice in Antarctica have been wiped out by three years of sudden and dramatic declines, leaving scientist puzzled as to why the region has flipped so abruptly. A new satellite analysis reveals that between 2014 and 2017 sea ice extent in the southern hemisphere suffered unprecedented annual decreases, leaving the area […]
