News has come that the famed ocean conveyor belt, subject of countless TV documentaries and science lessons, is not as simple as scientists believed. The 50 year old model of global ocean circulation that predicts a deep Atlantic counter current belo
The archipelago nation of Tuvalu is in danger of being lost to the sea. You can't stop it, but you can (and will) pay for it.
Using satellite images of sea ice and computer models the scientists discovered that the ozone hole has strengthened surface winds around Antarctica and deepened the storms in the South Pacific area of the Southern Ocean that surrounds the continent.
Our finding that tropical cyclones are responsible for many of the clouds in the stratosphere opens up the possibility that these storms could affect global climate, in addition to the oft-mentioned possibility of climate change affecting the frequen
According to this the shift in warmth that took place up to 1998 and stayed in place until the past two years is still above the long term average. This means that we are still entering spring with a high base temperature and this should spell a warm
Evidently, I create an extra ton of greenhouse gases per year. My wife would probably agree with that assessment.
East Antarctica is four times the size of west Antarctica and parts of it are cooling. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research report prepared for last week's meeting of Antarctic Treaty nations in Washington noted the South Pole had shown
Yet the public is in complete revolt if these numbers hold up. Of course, the cause of public skepticism is the unrelenting lack of cooperation from the weather. Two clod winters in a row and a complete reversal of the warming trend line is impossi
The site, scheduled to debut this week, will be a “one-stop shop” for anyone following climate change, Mr. Morano says. He will post research he thinks the public should see, as well as reported video segments and ratings of environmental journalists
Reports of chemtrails, jet plumes emitted from planes that hang in the air for hours and do not dissipate, often blanketing the sky in criss-cross patterns, have increased dramatically over the last 10 years.
Most geologists, including those in the energy business, take a REALLY long view of the earth's history including global warming and cooling cycles. Within the framework of geologic time, i.e. the earth's history, man is a very late entry and
The warming of Atlantic Ocean waters in recent decades is largely due to declines in airborne dust from African deserts and lower volcanic emissions, a new study suggests. Since 1980, the tropical North Atlantic has been warming by an average of
The Wordie Ice Shelf, which had been disintegrating since the 1960s, is gone, the northern part of the Larsen Ice Shelf no longer exists, and glaciers are melting faster than anyone thought due to climate change, U.S. and British government researche
I am including the link to my most useful current sea ice map here for future reference. It usually updates every week or so and the lower map is a comparison map. Make for a great reality check. http://www.socc.ca/seaice/seaice_current_e.cfmEntered By: Robert Klein
And quite apart from examining the hard evidence, he says, the elementary laws of physics (latent heat needed to melt ice) tell us that the apocalypse conjured up by Al Gore and Co could not possibly come about.
the Red River will be stress testing the floodway that bypasses Winnipeg this year and all flood defenses will also be tested. It appears that all the records will be challenged. The main lesson here though, is that North Dakota needs to build flo
This paper is a full frontal attack on the science that has been presented and relied on by the IPCC crowd for the past several years. I am not aware of ever seeing such an unforgiving denunciation of anyone’s science. I personally thought that s
The Arctic is warming up so quickly that the region's sea ice cover in summer could vanish as early as 2013, decades earlier than some had predicted, a leading polar expert said on Thursday. Warwick Vincent, director of the Center for Northern
There comes a time when the unrelenting propaganda is so over the top that one becomes offended. Tying in the civil rights movement as a comparable is saddening. That was the ending in the USA of an imposed human condition that lasted for thousan
When I commenced this blog two years ago, global warming had been with us for at least a decade and perhaps realistically for twenty years. It was indisputably warmer but is had also stabilized near the top end of the natural range as demonstrated in
Let me get this right. We have a cooling event without cause and we must be prepared to discount it as significant for thirty years. I am trying to imagine any other field of human endeavor that would accept such a specious argument.
Around the end of the Little Ice Age, Europe experienced this awful winter that was recognized as the worst experienced and can be accepted as that because of the living knowledge of the time and place. This article gives us a good description and pl
Dr Hansen’s utterances have recently gone way over the edge into the land of fanaticism and faith based positions and certainly is not the voice of science. His colleagues are quite right to call him out on this and he would be quite right to back of
You would think that by now, that our promoters of the sky is falling school of global warming debate would have learned to keep their heads down and to pack their enthusiasm with a surfeit of weasel words. As my readers know, the twenty year warm
Recent days have seen some fairly hysterical mutual abuse between the two camps who have even gone so far as to associate themselves with the politics of the left and right. I want you to think about what I just said. How can an issue of science h
DPS’ James Warriner reports that there is a new bandit in town. Not a Silly String Bandit, not a PostIt-Note Bandit, but a Snow Bandit! “Those bandits are smarter than we thought,” said Warriner. “Now they’re manipulating the weather to make ice form
This spat is quite delightful. The scientific community has not quite woken up to the reality that many new ideas are going to be published first on the internet to establish priority and to expose them to an initial peer review. They all can be impr
We have learned enough to ask a few pointed questions regarding the interpretation of the extremely important Vostok Core. This core was pulled from very deep Antarctic ice at the Vostok station and has been given treatment by the global warming enth
The PDO cool mode has replaced the warm mode in the Pacific Ocean, virtually assuring us of about 30 years of global cooling, perhaps much deeper than the global cooling from about 1945 to 1977.
