• Volcanoes Shaped the Climate Before Humankind

    Five large volcanic eruptions occurred in the early 19th century. They caused cooling and – as a study led by the University of Bern shows – to drying in the monsoon regions and glaciers growing in the Alps. The study shows that the pre-industrial climate was not constant: if one takes this cold period as […]

    July 16, 2019: Note to astronauts: 2019 is not a good year to fly into deep space. In fact, it’s shaping up to be one of the worst of the Space Age. The reason is, the solar cycle. One of the deepest Solar Minima of the past century is underway now. As the sun’s magnetic field […]

  • No Evidence That Climate Change Causes Weather Extremes: Hurricanes

    • Date: 16/07/19
    • Ralph B. Alexander, Science Under Attack

    It’s clear that the frequency of landfalling hurricanes of any strength (categories 1 through 5) hasn’t changed in the nearly 50 years since 1970 – during a time when the globe warmed by approximately 0.6 degrees Celsius. This third post in our series on the spurious links between climate change and extreme weather examines the […]

  • Antarctic Ice Surprise

    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Nature is complicated and often contradictory. Even with such an all-encompassing theory like Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) not every result and observation points in the same direction. It’s these observations that contain new information, especially in the netherlands between AGW forcing and natural climate variability. The recent decline in Antarctic sea ice is remarkable given […]

  • Scientists Baffled As Antarctic Ice Goes From Record High To Record Low

    • Date: 03/07/19
    • New Scientist

    Decades of expanding sea ice in Antarctica have been wiped out by three years of sudden and dramatic declines, leaving scientist puzzled as to why the region has flipped so abruptly. A new satellite analysis reveals that between 2014 and 2017 sea ice extent in the southern hemisphere suffered unprecedented annual decreases, leaving the area […]

  • Biased Data Undermine Iconic Weather Record

    • Date: 02/07/19
    • Nature

    Flaws are revealed in a highly cited database that dates back more than two centuries. Scientists have identified biased data in an iconic meteorological record, and are now challenging conclusions about long-term precipitation trends in England, Wales and possibly other regions. The England and Wales Precipitation (EWP) series is a continuous monthly record of British […]

  • Contrary to Global Warming Predictions, Great Lakes Water Levels Now at Record Highs

    • Date: 28/06/19
    • Roy Spencer

    It is a truism that any observed change in nature will be blamed by some experts on global warming (aka “climate change”, “climate crisis”, “climate emergency”). When the Great Lakes water levels were unusually low from approximately 2000 through 2012 or so, this was pointed to as evidence that global warming was causing the Great […]

  • Contrary To Predictions, Ice Breakup Dates For Western Hudson Bay Unchanged In 20 Years

    • Date: 27/06/19
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    Contrary to predictions of ever-declining ice cover, the lack of a trend in sea ice breakup dates for Western Hudson Bay is now twenty years long. Straight from the horse’s mouth: all polar bear females tagged by researchers around Churchill in Western Hudson Bay last year were still on the ice as of 25 June. […]
