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 […]

  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 […]

October Global Temps Shatter Records

According to three sources (NASA, NOAA, and Japan Meteorological Agency) October 2015 goes down as the warmest October for the globe since records began in the late 1800s.  This continues the long streak of record warm months this year.  It is highly likely 2015 will be the warmest year on record as well based on […]

AGW list epilogue

For those of you who are unaware or don’t remember. I used to curate an “AGW list”. It was a list of all the bad things that were going to happen because of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). From the 1990s through the first decade of the new millennium, the theory and worry about AGW grew […]

Interesting Data

Did you catch the dramatic headlines about ice conditions around the globe recently? No? I did, but just barely. You probably didn’t hear anything about recent ice conditions because the news is “good”, relatively speaking. Did you hear about the amount of sea ice in the arctic this year? Not likely, because it didn’t break […]
