    • Global Warming Policy Foundation

    Press Release – Authors of a fatally flawed climate study “have no scientifically-defensible choice but to withdraw the paper.” A recent paper in Nature has received worldwide media attention because of its claim to have shown that the recent hiatus in surface temperature rises was the result of natural variability. The lead author, Jochem Marotzke of the Max Planck […]

  • New Paper: Antarctic Sea Ice Growing, Not Shrinking

    • M.-È. Gagné*, N. P. Gillett andJ. C. Fyfe, Geophysical Research Letters

    Abstract: Continuous monitoring of the polar regions by satellites has shown that sea ice extent (SIE) in the Antarctic has increased slightly since 1979. By contrast, climate model simulations including all major anthropogenic and natural climate influences simulate an average decrease in SIE since 1979. Here we take a longer view and assess the consistency of […]

  • Climate Change 2014: Synthesis Report

    • Date: 02/11/14
    • IPCC

    The Synthesis Report (SYR) of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) provides an overview of the state of knowledge concerning the science of climate change, emphasizing new results since the publication of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report in 2007 (AR4). The SYR synthesizes the main findings of the AR5 (IPCC) based on contributions from Working […]

    McLean, J. (2014) Late Twentieth-Century Warming and Variations in Cloud Cover.  Atmospheric and Climate Sciences, 4, 727-742. doi: 10.4236/acs.2014.44066. ABSTRACT From 1950 to 1987 a strong relationship existed between the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and HadCRUT4 global average temperature anomaly, interrupted occasionally by volcanic erup-tions. After 1987 the relationship diverged, with temperature anomaly increasing more than ex-pected, […]

    • Global Warming Policy Foundation

    London, 20 October: A briefing paper published today by the Global Warming Policy Foundation refutes claims that Arctic walruses are in distress and danger due to global warming. The paper, written by Canadian zoologist Dr Susan Crockford, assesses the recent mass haulouts of walrus females and calves on the beaches of Alaska and Russia bordering […]

  • Climate Dialogue: What Will Happen During A New Maunder Minimum?

    • Date: 18/10/14
    • Climate Dialogue

    According to the latest IPCC report, AR5, the influence of the sun on our climate since pre-industrial times, in terms of radiative forcing, is very small compared to the effect of greenhouse gases. According to some more skeptical scientists such a small solar influence is counterintuitive. The Little Ice Age, the period roughly from 1350 […]

  • Rainfall And Floods: Observations More Reliable Than Climate Models

    • Date: 10/10/14
    • Global Warming Policy Foundation

    London, 10 October: A new briefing paper from the Global Warming Policy Foundation reviews the scientific literature on rainfall and floods and finds little evidence that there have been significant changes in recent years and little support for claims that they will become worse in future.   Despite claims to the contrary, there has been […]
