    The animation below shows that in December sea ice ice has recovered in the central Arctic with open water found only on the margins, as is typical this time of year. The animation shows progression of ice extent from Dec. 1 to Dec. 22, 2019. Most dramatic is Hudson Bay on the left filling in […]

  • Earth Is Being Bombarded By Cosmic Rays As Sunspots Set Space Age Record

    • Metro News

    Planet Earth is being bombarded by cosmic rays which are among the most powerful in recorded history as the sun set a Space Age record for spotlessness. The sun is currently going through a period in its 11-year cycle called the solar minimum, which means sunspot activity has slowed and its face has gone blank. […]

    As predictable as Christmas, every year meteorological agencies issue assessments of annual global temperature data in early December – primarily in order to influence the annual UN climate summits. The World Meteorological Organisation has done it again with a press release that serves very well the purpose of any climate-related press release – to be […]

  • India’s Best Monsoon In 25 Years To Lift Wheat Harvest To New Record

    • Date: 01/12/19
    • Reuters

    India’s wheat production could jump to a second consecutive annual record in 2020 as the wettest monsoon in 25 years is set to help farmers in expanding the area under the winter-sown crop while also boosting yields, industry officials told Reuters. But that higher production would add to India’s already swelling inventories, potentially forcing the […]

    The people of India have special cause to rejoice this year. The 2019 Indian summer monsoon was the best in 25 years. In India, monsoon is synonymous with joy. That’s probably because the majority of India’s 1.3 billion people directly or indirectly depend on agriculture, the success of which depends largely upon the rains of […]

  • Climate Models vs Observations: 2019 Update

    • Date: 12/11/19
    • Ross McKitrick

    Back around 2014 many people, me included, were commenting on the discrepancy between climate models and observations. In a report for the Fraser Institute I showed the following graph: The HadCRUT4 series (black) was then dipping below the 95% lower bound of the model distribution. The IPCC itself in the 5th Assessment Report (2013) noted […]

  • Solar Cycle 25 is Slowly Coming to Life

    • Date: 03/11/19
    • Space Weather

    Breaking a string of 28 spotless days, a new sunspot (AR2750) is emerging in the sun’s southern hemisphere–and it’s a member of the next solar cycle. How do we know AR2750 belongs to the next solar cycle? Its magnetic polarity tells us so. Southern sunspots from old Solar Cycle 24 have a -/+ polarity. This […]

  • Sea-Level Rise from Antarctic Ice Shelves Might Be Overestimated, Study Finds

    • Date: 22/10/19
    • Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS), MIT

    Study finds even the tallest ice cliffs should support their own weight rather than collapsing catastrophically. Antarctica’s ice sheet spans close to twice the area of the contiguous United States, and its land boundary is buttressed by massive, floating ice shelves extending hundreds of miles out over the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean. When […]
