    The deep oceans have been cooling for the past two decades and it is not possible to say whether changes in ocean heat adequately explain the “pause” in global warming, two of the world’s leading ocean scientists have said. Warmer oceans have been a key explanation for the “missing” heat. Global average surface temperatures have […]

  • Deep Oceans Are Cooling Amidst A Sea Of Modeling Uncertainty

    Deep oceans exhibit a clear cooling trend for the past 2 decades. Two of the world’s premiere ocean scientists from Harvard and MIT have addressed the data limitations that currently prevent the oceanographic community from resolving the differences among various estimates of changing ocean heat content (in print but available here). They point out where future data […]

    Once again we see further reinforcement for the conclusion that there is no detectable evidence of a role for human-caused climate change in increasing disaster losses. A new paper appeared in Climatic Change this week by Visser et al. which looks at disasters and climate change (open access here).  Like other studies and the IPCC assessment, Visser et al. find no trends in […]

  • New Paper Finds ‘Striking Mismatch’ Between Data & Models For Present & Last Interglacial

    More of the daily dose of bad news for climate models: A paper published today in Quaternary Science Reviews finds climate models are unable to reproduce the known climate change of Greenland and the Southern Hemisphere during the present and last interglacial periods. The authors attribute these major problems to either an incorrect balance of feedbacks, or […]

    The Global Warming Policy Foundation is pleased to announce that Professor Fritz Vahrenholt has joined the GWPF’s Academic Advisory Council. Professor Fritz Vahrenholt was one of the founders of the environmental movement in Germany. In the 1980s his bestseller Seveso ist überall (Seveso is everywhere) triggered a debate which led to a fundamental reorientation of […]

    Considered a bellwether of climate change, the Antarctic seabird’s population is generally on the rise Rather than declining as feared, the Adélie penguin population generally is on the rise, scientists say.Stony Brook University For the first time, researchers have counted all the world’s Adélie penguins—a sprightly seabird considered a bellwether of climate change—and discovered that […]

  • Climate Science Paper Censored By American Meteorological Society Journal

    Read more

    Research that questioned the accuracy of computer models used to predict global warming was “censored” by climate scientists, it was alleged yesterday. One academic reviewer said that a section should not be published because it “would lead to unnecessary confusion in the climate science community”. Another wrote: “This entire discussion has to disappear.” The paper […]

  • Are Polar Bears Really Endangered?

    Christina Wu at the Urban Times (July 3, 2014) recently asked this question. She came up with a surprisingly balanced argument but some predictable responses from IUCN Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) biologists. As a consequence, she overlooked some critical facts that make a big difference to the answer. Figure 1. Predictions of polar bear population declines by 2050 are […]
