New Scafetta paper – his celestial model outperforms GISS

Dr. Nicola Scafetta writes: Anthony,   I believe that you may be interested in my last published work. This paper suggests that climate is characterized by oscillations that are predictable. These oscillations appear to be linked to planetary motion. A climate model capable of reproducing these oscillation would outperform traditional climate models to reconstruct climate oscillations.…

May UAH Global Temperature Anomaly – holding steady

May 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.53 deg. C. By Dr. Roy Spencer The global-average lower tropospheric temperature remains warm: +0.53 deg. C for May, 2010. The linear trend since 1979 is now +0.14 deg. C per decade.Tropics picked up a bit, but SSTs indicate El Nino has ended and we may be headed to…

Noctilucent clouds may be more visible during this summer

They’re called noctilucent (“night-shining”) because they can be seen after dark. The origin of the clouds, which hover at the very top of Earth’s atmosphere in close proximity to…

Deep Purple Haze – the orginal sunscreen

Early Earth haze likely provided ultraviolet shield for planet, says CU-Boulder study. See press release here. Earth’s thick organic haze 3 billion years ago likely similar to haze hovering over Saturn moon Titan today A new study shows a thick organic haze that enshrouded early Earth several billion years ago may have been similar to…
