Parrotfish Vindicated

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Four years ago I wrote a post called “The Parrotfish Should Be The National Bird“, about the critical place that the parrotfish plays in the life of both the reef and the coral atolls that depend on the reef. It was based mostly on my years of scuba and snorkel…

IPCC Objectives and Methods Mandated Elimination, Reduction, Manipulation of Inadequate Real Data and Creation of False Data.

Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) computer model projections are unfailingly wrong. Projections for three scenarios, High, Medium and Low, are consistently high compared to the actual temperature. There is something fundamentally wrong with their work and claims. They should not be the basis of any policy, public or private.…

During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a cool period which coincided with snowy winters and generally cool summers, the temperatures fluctuated widely but with little trend. From 1910, temperatures increased slightly until about 1950 when they flattened before a sharp rising trend began in about 1975. Temperatures in the most recent decade (years 2001-2010) were slightly higher in all seasons than the long-term average.

What do three CET reference weather stations used by the Met Office have in common?

Guest essay by Tom Barr Central England Temperature stations, long considered a benchmark, have been affected by land use change and urbanisation The answer is blindingly obvious, from above: they are all subject to considerable modern local urbanisation immediately to the North, including heated greenhouses designed to replicate a Mediterranean climate. The Met Office relies…

This is How Climate Works – Part 2

Guest essay by Mike Jonas /Continued from Part 1 3. The Models can never work In an earlier post, Inside the Climate Computer Models, I explained how the climate computer models, as currently structured, could never work. Put simply, they are not climate models, they are weather models, because they operate on small(ish) pieces of…

Stunning Earth UHD imagery from new GOES 16 satellite

Finally, a weather satellite showing Earth from space “goes” high definition. With five-times greater coverage, four-times the spatial resolution, and three-times the spectral channels than earlier generations of GOES-16’s Advanced Baseline Imager can provide more detailed imagery and multi-task in ways that previous GOES imagers could not. For proof of that, consider the following image…
