How are the bees doing?

Back when I kept the big list of bad things that were going to be caused by anthropogenic global warming (AGW), one of the items that made the list, and then didn’t, and then was back on again, is bee-colony-collapse-disorder (BCCD). Time for an update. BCCD is potentially ruinous because by some estimates, bees are used to […]

Recent Study Shows No Slowdown in Global Warming Rate

You probably have heard or read in recent years that there has been some sort of global warming “hiatus” over the past few decades.  Well a new study produced by a group of scientists from NOAA refutes that claim.  Their study suggests that the rate of global warming during that the last 15 years has […]

Tornadoes, Tornadoes Everywhere

For new readers of the weather blog, allow me to relay some ancient history once again. A few years back, I started a list. It was a list of bad things that were going to happen because of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). I decided to start keeping track because I had heard so many things […]

Peak Oil or Cheap Oil

Time to take a quick look at the energy situation around the world. As blog readers know, I have been periodically updating these pages with news of peak oil and alternative energy production for the last few years. These themes relate to the climate because of the leading theory that human produced carbon dioxide is […]

Voices on AGW

Despite the recent record cold in our neck-of-the-woods, average temperatures around the earth have gone up a little this year (according major climate monitoring organizations, although there is at least some small controversy regarding statistical manipulation of the numbers upward). Earlier this Fall while I was too busy to blog, there was a “climate march” […]

Zero Tolerance

Have a you ever heard the phrase “Science advances one funeral at a time”? It is attributed to Max Planck. What does it mean? It means that many scientists become enamored with a current theory (perhaps their own) and never let go of it until they die. The theory might be substantially correct or it […]

A Look At Earth’s Temperature Over the Past 11,000 Years

Scientists know that there have been multiple periods since Earth began that have been warmer than our current climate.  But what about Earth’s more “recent” history?  Research published in 2013 suggests the current global average Earth temperature is close to if not the warmest it has been in 11, 300 years.   The conclusion is drawn […]

Great News for Arctic Sea Ice!

In the past I have often suggested that bias is – or could become a problem in climate science. Most people hope that our best scientists would be the least likely to fall prey to various forms of bias, but we are all human. I am biased. Just like everyone, I find it difficult sometimes […]

More Talking

Since I have blogged so prolifically about anthropogenic global warming (AGW), just a few thoughts about last night’s climate talk-a-thon by U.S. Senators. Considering that the U.S. has dramatically cut carbon emissions in the past few years WITHOUT any national climate legislation, regulation, or taxation, perhaps there are better ways to deal with this potential […]

El Nino Ennui

When you saw the national media making a big deal about a possible El Nino later this year did you yawn? I did. At least figuratively. As a reader of the weather blog, I wouldn’t blame you for not showing too much excitement, because I covered this exact El Nino scenario already 3 months ago. […]
