Pat Sajak solves manmade global warming

I’m sure that many will dismiss this because, well, ‘he’s a game show host”. But, most people don’t know this, but Pat was the TV weatherman for KNBC-TV in Los Angeles before being recruited by Merv Griffin for “Wheel of Fortune”. He also served in Vietnam, working in the Armed Forces Radio Network. So, he…

GISS Swiss Cheese

By Steve Goddard We are all familiar with the GISS graph below, showing how the world has warmed since 1880. http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs/Fig.A2.lrg.gif The GISS map below shows the geographic details of how they believe the planet has warmed. It uses 1200 km smoothing, a technique which allows them to generate data where they have none –…

AccuWeather's Joe Bastardi starts a weekly sea ice report

Joe writes to me today to tell me he’s started a weekly sea ice video report. He’s following our weekly Sea Ice News and Sea Ice Page lead, and even prominently referencing WUWT during his broadcast. Good for him, because this “death spiral watch” is of intense interest wordwide. Two years of sea ice recovery…

New peer reviewed paper refutes claims of blizzards of last winter being driven by "global warming"

Paging Joe Romm: In fact, this record-breaking snowstorm is pretty much precisely what climate science predicts.  Since one typically can’t make a direct association between any individual weather event and global warming, perhaps the best approach is to borrow and modify a term from the scientific literature and call this a “global-warming-type” deluge. From Columbia…

"Unaccounted feedbacks": to B or not to B

University of Helsinki via Eurekalert Unaccounted feedbacks from climate-induced ecosystem changes may increase future climate warming The terrestrial biosphere regulates atmospheric composition, and hence climate. Projections of future climate changes already account for “carbon-climate feedbacks”, which means that more CO2 is released from soils in a warming climate than is taken up by plants due…

Interior Dept. Inspector General Investigating post facto falsified statements from engineers on drilling moratorium

While this isn’t our normal fare here at WUWT, I found it interesting and relevant, since WUWT covered the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling spill story early on here, with several follow ups. This story is a result of that spill. – Anthony Guest post by WUWT moderator Mike Lorrey US Department of Interior Inspector General…
