• Staying Power Of Kilimanjaro Snow Defies Al Gore’s Gloomy Forecast

    • Date: 17/02/20
    • The Times

    Kilimanjaro has a habit of defying predictions. Some climate scientists had forecast that all of its icefields and glaciers would have completely melted by now. Yet data suggests a number are stubbornly clinging on, albeit shrunken. Predictions that there would be no more snow on Africa’s highest peak long before we entered this decade spurred […]

  • Arctic Sea Ice Much More Resilient Than Thought

    • Date: 13/02/20
    • Meteorologist Paul Dorian, Perspecta, Inc.

    In recent years the Arctic sea ice has shown great resiliency and is currently at higher levels for this time of year when compared to all but two years going back to 2005.  Overview Sea ice covers about 7% of the Earth’s surface and about 12% of the world’s oceans and forms mainly in the […]

  • Are Ocean Currents Speeding Up … Or Are They Slowing Down? Nobody Knows

    • Date: 10/02/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    The latest research contradicts previous studies which suggested that global warming will weaken ocean circulation, especially in tropical waters. “Global warming is speeding up Earth’s massive ocean currents,” said one headline. “Global ocean circulation is accelerating from the surface to the abyss,” said another.” But this is another of those climate stories in which the […]

  • Thwaites Glacier: Why Did The BBC Fail To Mention The Volcanoes Underneath?

    • Date: 29/01/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Scientists have known for years that subglacial volcanoes and other geothermal “hotspots” are contributing to the melting of the Thwaites Glacier. Why did the BBC fail to mention these facts in its recent report? The International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration is performing some magnificent science, conducting the most ambitious fieldwork ever undertaken at the tip of […]

  • Down And Up: 2019 Global Temperature

    • Date: 20/01/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Last year was the second, third or fourth warmest depending on whom you speak to, with by far most of the warming occurring in one region of the planet, the Arctic. We’ve just lived through the warmest decade in at least 170 years, probably longer. The past five years have been the warmest, dominating the […]

  • Ocean Warming: Not As Simple As Headlines Say

    • Date: 16/01/20
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    The bottom line of this paper is that according to the authors the world’s oceans (i.e. parts of them) have increased in temperature by less than 0.1 degrees C in 60 years. It’s the usual story. It’s the beginning of the year and the statistics of the previous year are hurriedly collected to tell the […]

  • 30 Years Of IPCC Reports: How Well Have They Done?

    • Date: 03/01/20
    • Clive Best

    It is normal practice in science that theoretical predictions which fail experimental tests are rejected or at the very least modified. Not in climate science though. Over the last 30 years there have been 5 IPCC assessment reports on climate change.  I decided to compare each  warming predictions made at the time of publication to […]

  • NASA: Area Burned By Global Wildfires Dropped By 25% Since 2003

    • Date: 02/01/20
    • Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times

    Climate activists often warn that global warming is stoking forest fires, but it turns out the amount of land burned by wildfires worldwide has plummeted by 25% since 2003, according to NASA. NASA’s Earth Observatory found that the number of total square kilometers burned globally each year has decreased steadily from 2003-19, based on data […]
