• Antarctic Sea Ice Did The Exact Opposite Of What Models Predicted

    Climate models can be good tools for predicting future sea ice levels — unless, of course, they are completely wrong. In the case of Antarctica, the climate models were dead wrong, according to a new study by Chinese scientists published in the journal Cryosphere. The study found that most climate models predicted Antarctic sea ice coverage would shrink as […]

    Scientists using ice-penetrating radar data collected by NASA’s Operation IceBridge and earlier airborne campaigns have built the first comprehensive map of layers deep inside the Greenland Ice Sheet, opening a window on past climate conditions and the ice sheet’s potentially perilous future. This new map allows scientists to determine the age of large swaths of […]

  • The “Pause” Might End Soon, Or Possibly Not

    There are many fascinating things about the “pause” – the 18-year long period of no statistically significant global surface warming. One of those interesting things is the language used to describe it, as a new paper in Nature Climate Change demonstrates. Roberts et al (2015) use the other term often used – “hiatus” – in […]

    Last month the sun reached a sunspot number of 67.0 and thus was once again below normal in activity: It reached 85% of what is normal for the particular cycle month. Fig. 1: The mean activity of the sun since systematic observations have been conducted is shown in blue and the current cycle (24th cycle, red), along […]

  • Are The Oceans Really Dying?

    • Date: 17/02/15
    • Ivo Vegter, Daily Maverick

    Whenever environmental doomsayers run out of arguments, they turn to the sea for hope – or rather, fear. Fish stocks are collapsing, and if climate change doesn’t get us, ocean acidification will. But how true are these claims? It may not surprise you to learn that I have a lot of conversations about the supposedly […]

  • Unabated Planetary ‘Warming’?

    • Date: 10/02/15
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    There is much uncertainty in estimates about ocean warming and its changing heat content. To appreciate that one only has to look at the differences between OHC (Ocean Heat Content) graphs given in the IPCC AR4 and AR5 reports. In the 20th century the sampling of ocean temperature at depth was sparse in both space […]

  • Sensor Changes Artificially Inflate Temperature Increases At Higher Elevations In Western U.S.

    • Date: 30/01/15
    • University of Montana

    In a recent study, University of Montana and Montana Climate Office researcher Jared Oyler found that while the western U.S. has warmed, recently observed warming in the mountains of the western U.S. likely is not as large as previously supposed. His results, published Jan. 9 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, show that sensor changes […]
