• 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. […]

    A sprawling chain of volcanic islands and atolls in the central Pacific Ocean has grown in size over the past 70 years, despite sea level rises, a new study shows. It confirms that atolls are built from sediment off modern coral reefs – and the health of the reefs is vital to keep the process […]

    Another example of climate journalists and researchers not looking carefully at the data they are reporting. It is on the face of it it is an interesting and significant story showing the tragic effects on humans as a result of a warming world.

    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Recently there were many headlines proclaiming that this September was the warmest on record. It was from a report uncritically relayed by many. The reasoning behind the conclusion is worth taking a little time to digest as it demonstrates that temperature statistics are often open to interpretation. Consider the GISS Loti database on which September […]

    • Andrew Montford, GWPF

    The Central England Temperature Record is the Met Office’s preferred measure of UK temperature, at least as far as climatology is concerned. Although the number of sites underlying the record is tiny and all of them are situated in the Midlands, how these stations have changed over time is well understood. That means that any […]
