• Contrary To Predictions, Ice Breakup Dates For Western Hudson Bay Unchanged In 20 Years

    • Date: 27/06/19
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    Contrary to predictions of ever-declining ice cover, the lack of a trend in sea ice breakup dates for Western Hudson Bay is now twenty years long. Straight from the horse’s mouth: all polar bear females tagged by researchers around Churchill in Western Hudson Bay last year were still on the ice as of 25 June. […]

  • Whatever Happened To The Global Warming Hiatus?

    • Date: 25/06/19
    • Clive Best

    The monthly temperature values in over 4000 CRUTEM3 stations have all been continuously changed, and it is these changes alone that have resulted in transforming the 16 year long hiatus in global warming into a rising temperature trend. But all these changes have only affected temperatures AFTER 1998. The last IPCC assessment in 2013 showed […]

  • Himalayan Glacier Loss Is Due To Many Factors

    • Date: 21/06/19
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    In much of today’s environmental journalism reporters are too quick to attribute almost all changes to anthropogenic forcing. Many news outlets have reported the very interesting finding detailed in Science Advances that ice loss from Himalayan glaciers has doubled in the past 40 years. Using data from modern satellites and from declassified images taken by […]

    The sun continues to be very quiet and it has been without sunspots this year 62% of the time as we approach what is likely to be one of the deepest solar minimums in a long, long time. In fact, all indications are that the upcoming solar minimum may be even quieter than the last […]

    • UCI

    After conducting a comprehensive, seven-year survey of Patagonia, glaciologists from the University of California, Irvine and partner institutions in Argentina and Chile have concluded that the ice sheets in this vast region of South America are considerably more massive than expected. Through a combination of ground observations and airborne gravity and radar sounding methods, the […]

    More than 283 million Americans currently live in regions experiencing no drought. This is the most people in the history of the US to experience no drought conditions at once. The graph above shows data for the entire period covered by the US Drought Monitor. This week marks the first time in the record that >90% […]

  • Half of 21st Century Warming Due to El Nino

    • Date: 15/05/19
    • Roy Spencer

    The observed rate of warming is only about one-half of that projected by climate models at this point in the 21st Century. A major uncertainty in figuring out how much of recent warming has been human-caused is knowing how much nature has caused. The IPCC is quite sure that nature is responsible for less than […]

  • Mighty Greenland Glacier Slams On Brakes

    • Date: 14/05/19
    • BBC News

    European satellites have detailed the abrupt change in behaviour of one of Greenland’s most important glaciers. The glacier’s trunk is thickening by 20m a year. In the 2000s, Jakobshavn Isbrae was the fastest flowing ice stream on the island, travelling at 17km a year. As it sped to the ocean, its front end also retreated […]
