    • Roger Pielke Jr.

    Since 1945, the number of hurricanes that make landfall has declined by about a third Last week a paper published in Science concluded that worldwide, “To date, there has been no firm evidence of global trends of the frequency of tropical cyclones with maximum wind speed above the hurricane-force wind (64 knots) at landfall.” That finding, which confirms our work, […]

    There has been no significant warming trend for 5 years. Every year in the middle of January various organisations, The UK Met Office, NASA, NOAA, etc. release their estimates of the annual average global temperature of our planet. This year the conclusion is that 2020 is statistically identical to 2016. Some have placed it the […]

    • Science Matters

    Arctic sea ice extent in 2020 was nearly average for the last decade. The chart above shows the record available from Sea Ice Index (SII) since 1989, along with the comparable record from MASIE 2006 to present. It shows 2020 is down 150k km2 (1%) from 2019, and 300k km2 above the low year 2017.  […]

    European satellite data show a generally decreasing trend since 2003, with 2020 one of the lowest years on record. 2020 has been a year of extremes when it comes to wildfires. The Arctic and US saw record high levels of activity during the summer, whilst Canada and tropical Africa saw record lows. These lows have […]

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot of People Know That

    New Met Office data for central England shows no warming trend since 2006 The annual data for 2020 has now been published for the CET, with the mean temperature ending up at 10.76C. No doubt we will get the usual hysteria from the Met Office about the “third warmest year on record”, “nine of the ten […]

  • Eastern Alps may have been ice-free 5000 years ago

    • Date: 19/12/20

    New research suggests that some Alpine glaciers were ice-free during the mid-Holocene warm period, when Earth’s climate was warmer than it is now. Glaciers in the Ötztal Alps in Austria are currently melting and may be lost within two decades, but this might not be the first time humans have seen this kind of change. […]
