• Despite Record Losses in 2017, Global Catastrophe Losses Are Trending Down

    Despite record weather-related catastrophe losses last year, since 1990 total global catastrophe losses are down by about one third Last July, I observed here that the world had recently experienced an era of unusually low disasters and that streak of good luck was going to end sometime. Little could I know that less than one month later […]

  • Global Temperatures Drop Back To Pre-El Nino Levels

    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    The onset of La Niña in the tropical Pacific Ocean has caused temperatures drop to levels not seen in six years, according to satellite temperature data. “Note that La Niña cooling in the tropics has finally penetrated the troposphere, with a -0.12 deg. C departure from average,” wrote atmospheric scientists John Christy and Roy Spencer, who compile satellite data […]

  • Global Temperature In 2017: Not A Resurgence Of Global Warming

    • Date: 17/01/18
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Global temperature data for the last 12 months refutes the idea that the warmth of 2017 was due to a resurgence of global warming. In fact, the world has been cooling.   It is clear that 2017 was a very warm year. Tomorrow, NOAA, NASA and the UK Met Office will announce by how much. It […]

  • Why the BBC Was Wrong to Make Reindeer Climate Scare

    • Date: 09/01/18
    • The Global Warming Policy Forum

    In a recent BBC programme, Simon Reeve made the alarming assertion that reindeer populations across Northern Russia were “in steep decline because of climate change”. The BBC have now admitted that this claim was false. It is just the latest instance in their attempts to whip up public alarm at the consequences of climate change and ignore […]

  • 2017: A Low-Level Year For Global Cyclone Activity

    • Date: 31/12/17
    • Paul Dorian, Vencore, Inc.

    While the Atlantic Basin experienced a very active tropical season in 2017, global activity was actually below-normal for the year by one type of measurement thanks to quiet seasons in the northern Pacific Ocean and throughout the Southern Hemisphere. The global “accumulated cyclone energy” as we close out the year is 78% of normal year-to-date […]

  • Global Temperature For November 2017 Continues Decline

    • Date: 24/12/17
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    At the moment the main question in the minds of those who study global temperature data is; how far are global temperatures going to fall in 2018? The record El Nino of recent years took global temperatures to unprecedented highs for the instrumental era. But comparisons with very strong El Ninos in the past are of […]

  • David Whitehouse: Cosmic Rays-Climate Link Found

    • Date: 19/12/17
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Scientists at the Technical University of Denmark have discovered what they call a game changing result in understanding how cosmic rays from supernovae – exploding stars – can influence Earth’s cloud cover and thereby climate by being mediated by the Sun. The new findings are published in the journal Nature Communications. If confirmed it could […]

  • Global Ocean Cooling Continues

    • Date: 12/12/17
    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    The global cooling trend since the 2015/16 El Nino peak has resumed HadSST is generally regarded as the best of the global SST data sets, and so the temperature story here comes from that source, the latest version being HadSST3. The chart below shows SST monthly anomalies as reported in HadSST3 starting in 2015 through […]
