Radiative Forcing, Radiative Feedbacks and Radiative Imbalance – The 2013 WG1 IPCC Report Failed to Properly Report on this Issue

Guest essay by Roger A. Pielke Sr. Main Points 1. The difference in ocean heat content at two different time periods provides the global average radiative imbalance over that time [within the uncertainty of the ocean heat measurements] 2. This global average radiative imbalance is equal to the sum of the global average radiative forcings…

AGU summarily rejects minority report without due process

Further Discussion on the Narrow Process of the AGU Review of Climate Change Guest essay by Roger A. Pielke Sr. With the appearance of the new 2013 WG1 IPCC report, it is useful to visit my recent experience with the American Geophysical Union (AGU) assessment process that I had not commented on before. My experience…

A new paper showing how UHI and energy consumption are linked to long-term temperature change in China

Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. highlighted this major new paper in JGR yesterday, I consider it important as it relates to the works I’m doing on station siting. The key points of the paper are supportive of what I’ve  been saying for years, and show a significant effect on temperature trends, just as we’ve noted in…

New paper on the quality of USHCN station siting

Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. draws attention today to a new study that cites Fall et al. 2011 aka the “Surfacestations Paper” that I co-authored, which was a follow up to my original surveys published in Watts 2009. The new paper is: Martinez, C.J., Maleski, J.J., Miller, M.F, 2012: Trends in precipitation and temperature in Florida,…

Pielke Sr. on the Muller testimony

Comments On The Testimony Of Richard Muller At the United States House Of Representatives Committee On Science, Space And Technology By Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. First, as posted on my son’s weblog in Global Temperature Trends the global temperature anomaly is essentially irrelevant in terms of climate change issues that matter to society and the…
