About six years ago I posted an article about CLOUD, an experiment to better understand the correlation between intensity of cosmic rays which varies with the sunspot cycle (solar activity), and cloud formation. In summary the findings to date indicate … Continue reading
Having just updated the climate bet, which confirms the lack of recent warming (ie: the ‘pause’ or ‘hiatus’ as some call it), I thought next we should take a look at global energy emissions on the same time comparative basis. … Continue reading
[New material has been added to this post] [More new material added – monthly SBRE calculation 4/11/14] Just in case you were not aware, since about 1997 or so, there has been nearly no global temperature rise. This is despite … Continue reading
Three years ago, early 2011, a decadal global climate bet was made. At that time, December 2010 marked the end of a 10 year period. January 2011 marked the beginning of the next. The transition stimulated the formation of a … Continue reading
Typical newspaper and TV articles which refer to CO2, malign it as a pollutant and some sort of horrible gas that we should do our utmost to get rid of, by not making it, or burying it deep underground. It … Continue reading
Just over two years ago, early 2011, a decadal global temperature bet was made. At that time December 2010 marked the end of the last 10 year period. January 2011 marked the beginning of the next. The transition stimulated the … Continue reading
‘Excellent’ – ‘well written’ – ‘impressive’ – ‘superb’ – ‘devastating’ are just a few of the comments describing it. I’ve read it. It is absolutely impressive. The article is a speech given by Matt Ridley on 31 October, to the … Continue reading
This article is by John O’Sullivan. I repeat it here completely. I would not normally do this but John has just been fired and his articles have been removed from the internet. I am a tad sceptical about the satellite … Continue reading
Following in the footsteps of Hal Lewis … Prof Ivar Giaver, 82, an elected fellow of the American Physical Society, has resigned from the society; protesting its stance on global warming. He is a US based Norwegian physicist and is … Continue reading
It is reported at the Climate Conversation blog that New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Ltd (NIWA) have not properly followed their approved process for making temperature adjustments (for legitimate things like the urban heat island effect … Continue reading
