A Future Climate Science Moment

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale Not too far in the future, a third-generation climate scientist will be asked by a college student about his grandfather’s work with climate models.  Flabbergasted, the climate scientist replies… My apologies to Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder, but I couldn’t resist. The models used by the IPCC really are horrible…

Finally Some Reality from RealClimate – But, Unfortunately, They Remained Unreal about Some Things

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale The post Ocean heat storage: a particularly lousy policy target + Update at RealClimate finally presented a few realities of the global-warming metric known as ocean heat content—realities we have discussed numerous times.  But they weren’t completely open about it and the other ocean temperature-related dataset, sea surface temperature. That…

With ARGO, There is a Wide Range Warming (and Cooling) Rates of the Oceans to Depths of 2000 Meters

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale The KNMI Climate Explorer has added a number of datasets to their Monthly observations webpage, where users select desired data based on global coordinates. (Many thanks to Dr. Geert Jan van Oldenborgh of KNMI.)  The new datasets include, under the heading of Ocean mean temperature, the National Oceanographic Data Center…
