Faster Than You Can Imagine

Faster Than You Can Imagine

I often generically mention “technological progress” as a reason why any climate model forecasts more than a couple of decades out are probably more fantasy than reality. Why am I so confident in this expectation? My eyes are open. I use my brain a little as well. It doesn’t take much thought or sight to acknowledge […]

What is really going to happen?

I went to the store the other day in order to buy a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL). As you probably know, I switched almost all of the lighting in my house over to LEDs. They are fantastic for many reasons, and I doubt I would ever go back. I only needed a compact fluorescent […]

Solar Power – It Could Be More!

In case you didn’t notice, solar power usage around the world is growing dramatically. Just in the last few months we have these headlines: Dubai is budgeting 27 billion for solar power development through 2030. Jordan plans to power mosques with solar panels. Morocco is building one of the world’s largest solar power plants. This […]

Criminal Science

Did I fall asleep and wake up in the novel “1984”? I hope I am only dreaming. There has long been an effort to silence scientific disagreements over climate science. Some people have suggested Nuremburg-type trials for anyone who disagrees with the “climate consensus”. Others have suggested taking away the seal of approval from any […]

Is the hiatus back again?

Is the hiatus back again?

Not even two weeks ago I published “What Graphs Reveal“. The central point of which was that it looks bad when temperature reconstructions of the past century (or even farther back) keep changing. The most recent example is the “global warming hiatus” that occurred from 1998 through 2014. Many climatologists acknowledged that the average temperature […]

What graphs reveal

Because of the heavy dose of politics that is forced upon people whenever anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is discussed, there is always controversy. With battle lines being drawn, climate science could be one of the fields most ripe for irrational bias. It is unfortunate. The data could stand on its own. You might recall some skepticism […]

New Satellite-Based Maps to Aid in Climate Prediction

  A recent article on NASA’s website explains that we now have a tool to quantitatively see how long and how much carbon is being stored in various biomasses throughout the world.  Here is an excerpt from the article edited by Tony Greicius. “New, detailed maps of the world’s natural landscapes created using NASA satellite […]

More Climate Statements

Before writing a few words about the recent “historical climate agreement”, I thought I better read the entire document. By government/treaty standards, it is fairly short, but it was still very dry. There are very few thrilling passages. Most of it is what you would expect, a lot of statements but not much substance. Some […]

Warmest November on Record Globally

With each passing month in this very warm year of 2015, global temperature records keep falling like dominoes.  According to NASA GISS, November 2015 is the warmest November on record (combined land / ocean temperature) since records began in 1880.   The global temperature averaged 1.05 degrees C above the 1951-1980 mean.  It beat out […]

AGW Lawsuits: No Longer Amusing

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) lawsuits have made headlines once again. For a primer, and a few laughs perhaps, check this detailed analysis of previous AGW lawsuit attempts. This blog entry is more recent and covers some additional angles. Sigh, so what is it this time? You might have caught wind of the New York Attorney General […]
