• Solar Activity and the next Maunder Minimum

    • 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

    • 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 […]

  • ‘Climate has no internal variability,’ Mann & Co. claim

    • Date: 11/03/21
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    The funny paper that dumps the Atlantic Meridional Oscillation (AMO) is so unconvincing it had to be published twice. It’s been called a tectonic shift in climate science resulting in the junking of thousands of peer-reviewed climate research papers. It’s also been held up as a prime example of why peer-review of some aspects of […]

  • Atlantic’s ‘conveyer belt’ shows no sign of declining, new study shows

    • Date: 26/02/21
    • Emma L. Worthington et al. (2021), Ocean Science, 15 February 2021

    Abstract A decline in Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) strength has been observed between 2004 and 2012 by the RAPID-MOCHA-WBTS (RAPID – Meridional Overturning Circulation and Heatflux Array – Western Boundary Time Series, hereafter RAPID array) with this weakened state of the AMOC persisting until 2017. Climate model and paleo-oceanographic research suggests that the AMOC […]

  • Andrew Montford: The good news on climate

    • Date: 21/02/21
    • Andrew Montford, The Spectator

    While we shouldn’t shy away from discussions over how to tackle the impact of climate change, it is not the impending catastrophe that some might make it out to be. As I watch the snow blow past my window, it’s hard not to scoff at the idea of a ‘climate emergency’. However, I’m probably in […]

    • Baking Business News

    Australian farmers have harvested their largest-ever wheat crop, according to the latest crop report issued by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences issued Feb. 16. ABARES estimated the 2020-21 Australian wheat crop at 33,337,000 tonnes, up 18,172,000 tonnes, or 120%, from the drought-reduced 2019-20 outturn of 15,165,000 tonnes. The 2020-21 wheat […]
