The revised Greenland temperature history (black curve, grey uncertainties) for the period 18,000 to 10,000 before present. This temperature history is based on temperature interpretation from nitrogen measurements (green curve) and O18 diffusion measurements (red curve). The blue curve is from a previous study, based on nitrogen measurements. Credit: Niels Bohr Institute

Past temperature in Greenland adjusted to fit new theory

From the University of Copenhagen – Niels Bohr Institute (BTW, the phrase “Past temperature in Greenland adjusted” in the headline is their choice of words, not mine.) One of the common perceptions about the climate is that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, solar radiation and temperature follow each other – the more…

Lying with Statistics: The National Climate Assessment Falsely Hypes Ice Loss in Greenland and Antarctica

by E. Calvin Beisner and J.C. Keister How fast are Greenland and Antarctica losing ice? If you trust the National Climate Assessment (NCA), you’ll think, “Very fast!” And that’s intentional. The aim is to provoke fear so the American public will support the Obama administration’s aim to spend $Trillions fighting global warming. Here’s how the…

Claim: ‘Sustained mass loss of the northeast Greenland ice sheet triggered by regional warming’, but, not so fast

The media spin is in full wash mode over this recent paper studying a small section of Greenland. WUWT Reader “non nomen” writes in Tips and Notes: “Sustained mass loss of the northeast Greenland ice sheet triggered by regional warming” http://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nclimate2161.html Propaganda? Wishful thinking? Reality? Have a look at some media headlines published about this…
