Climate Science Double-Speak: Update

Update by Kip Hansen   Last week I wrote about UCAR/NCAR’s very interesting discussion on “What is the average global temperature now?”. [Adding link to previous post mentioned.] Part of that discussion revolved around the question of why current practitioners of Climate Science insist on using Temperature Anomalies — the difference between the current average…

ROAD TRIP!

Anthony has generously offered me space in his campground up North.  As a young nerd I, of course, imagined eventually seeing a total eclipse at some point in my life and this is my chance. I am now on the road and I won’t be back until at least Tuesday.  Getting to Oregon should not…

A Deterministic Forecast of Future Climate Changes

By Renee Hannon Introduction In my previous WUWT post, I proposed a conceptual process model describing the influences of astronomical controls on interglacial warm periods and glacial cycles (Figure 1). The warm onsets with rapidly increasing temperatures are triggered by an increase in the eccentricity of Earth’s orbit, an increase in obliquity and an increase…

Weird science: ‘the equator serves as a waveguide that houses a zoo of all kinds of atmospheric waves’

Identifying individual atmospheric equatorial waves from a total flow field From the INSTITUTE OF ATMOSPHERIC PHYSICS, CHINESE ACADEMY OF SCIENCES Owing to the opposite vertical orientation with respect to the plane of Earth’s rotation across the equator from the Southern Hemisphere to Northern Hemisphere, the equator serves as a waveguide that houses a zoo of all…

Astrophysicists explain the mysterious behavior of cosmic rays

Scientists developed a model which explains the nature of high-energy cosmic rays in our Galaxy From the MOSCOW INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS AND TECHNOLOGY A team of scientists from Russia and China has developed a model which explains the nature of high-energy cosmic rays (CRs) in our Galaxy. These CRs have energies exceeding those produced by supernova…
