    Peter Lilley and Graham Stringer voted against the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee’s report on the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Report because “we believe the role of the Select Committee is to hold public institutions critically to account not to act as their cheer leaders”. They added: “As scientists by training, we […]

    Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 1,131,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. That obliterates the previous daily record by 500,000 sq km. And is also the 127th daily record for the year. Full post

    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 […]

    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 […]
