    The other day we were considering the concept of EROI, the amount of energy you get out of a given technology for the amount you have to put in. Specifically we were looking at the figures for solar PV in Spain. With splendid timing, the Energy Collective has published a post considering EROI for the full gamut of energy […]

    The temperature record at Rutherglen has been corrupted by managers at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. Heads need to start rolling at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

    In 1907, the US Weather Bureau discussed tampering with meteorological data. They described it as a crime, and said that it was up to the “independent press” (i.e. bloggers) to repress all “cheats and hoaxes” and  “defend the truth and the best interests of the whole nation as against the self-interest of a few”  docs.lib.noaa.gov/rescue/mwr/035/mwr-035-01-0007b.pdf Full […]

    I’s the news you’ve been waiting years to hear! Finally we find out the exact details of why the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) changed two of their best long term sites from cooling trends to warming trends. The massive inexplicable adjustments like these have been discussed on blogs for years. But it was only when Graham Lloyd […]

    The sheer number of these methane vents has taken scientists by surprise. The discovery of these underwater methane seeps underscores just how little we understand about our climate. Researchers have found more than 500 methane vents on the seafloor off the Atlantic coast of the United States. The sheer number of these so-called “seep areas” has taken […]

  • Judith Curry: The 50-50 Argument

    I am arguing that climate models are not fit for the purpose of detection and attribution of climate change on decadal to multidecadal timescales. Pick one: a)  Warming since 1950 is predominantly (more than 50%)  caused by humans. b)  Warming since 1950 is predominantly caused by natural processes. When faced with a choice between a) […]

    The American Meteorological Society has released updated polling results of their membership [26.3% response rate] which shows only 52% agree with the so-called “consensus” that global warming is mostly man-made. The poll finds “members of this professional community are not unanimous in their views of climate change, and there has been tension among members of […]

    Is the intensity of tornadoes increasing in the United States, (or, for that matter, falling)? It’s a perennial question. NOAA gives us some clues, with their charts of EF-1+ and EF-3 to EF-5 tornadoes since 1954. (NOAA ignore EF-0’s, because many more of these weak tornadoes get to be reported nowadays than in the past […]
