    This new paper allows great headlines to proclaim that the warming “pause” in global surface temperature is explainable by climate models. As is often the case in climate reporting the details do not back up the headline. Risbey et al (2014) in Nature Climate Change is yet another paper suggesting that the global surface temperature […]

    Ten days ago, the sun was quite active and peppered with several large spots. Now the sun has gone quiet and it is nearly completely blank. It appears that the solar maximum phase for solar cycle 24 may have been reached and it is not very impressive. It looks as if this solar cycle is “double-peaked” […]

    Climate alarmists hoping for a super-El Niño this fall and winter to jolt global warming back into high gear again are likely going to be sadly disappointed. NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center released its July monthly El Niño report on July 10. The consensus probability for El Niño conditions in the Northern Hemisphere remained unchanged, but indicators of […]

    Antarctic sea ice extent has set another record for June. At the end of the month, extent measured 16.284 million sq km, beating the previous record set in 2010 by 370,000 sq km.   http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/index.html Extent has also been well above the climatological norm throughout the last 12 months.   http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/archives.html It is a common […]

    In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, NASA’s brand new Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 successfully reached its final destination: space. It still has three weeks of maneuvers to do before it reaches its ultimate orbit 438 miles above the Earth. But by the end of the month it should be fully launched on its scientific mission: […]

    The Indian summer (June-September) monsoon impacts over 1.7 billion people of the Indian subcontinent and its timely progress, from the onset at the southern tip of India  around the 1st of June till about the 27th of June, when it is generally established all over India, is crucial for India’s agriculturally dominated economy. Besides agriculture, the summer […]

    Solar maximum is now. Indeed, the maximum — the peak of the 11-year sunspot cycle, when the sun erupts with solar flares and energetic bursts of electrons and protons — may have already passed. Three X-class solar flares, the most powerful type, erupted June 10 and 11. The images are from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. CreditImage by […]
