The ‘trick’: How More Cooling Generates Global Warming

From the “we’ll fix that in post” department comes this from down under courtesy of Dr. Jennifer Marohasy. COOLING the past relative to the present has the general effect of making the present appear hotter – it is a way of generating more global warming for the same weather. The Bureau of Meteorology has rewritten…

Cooling Down The Land

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach [UPDATE] I’ve discovered an error in the calculations that invalidates most of this post, with the exception of the snow extent data. See the explanation here.] As I mentioned in a recent post, the CERES satellite folks have released another year’s worth of data. Since this should have gotten us…

The 1970s Global Cooling Consensus was not a Myth

[update, reference sheet is now linked at the bottom of post] By Angus McFarlane, There was an overwhelming scientific consensus in the 1970s that the Earth was headinginto a period of significant cooling. The possibility of anthropogenic warming was relegated to a minority of the papers in the peer-reviewed literature. Introduction Whether or not there was…

The Millennial Turning Point – Solar Activity and the Coming Cooling

Guest opinion by Dr. Norman Page When analyzing complex systems with multiple interacting variables it is useful to note the advice of Enrico Fermi who reportedly said “never make something more accurate than absolutely necessary”. My recent paper presented a simple heuristic approach to climate science which plausibly proposed that a Millennial Turning Point (MTP)…

Revisiting the Mystery of Stratospheric Cooling

This paper claims that stratospheric cooling is the work of “greenhouse gases”. Saying: “An extended satellite temperature record and the chemistry‐climate models show weaker global stratospheric cooling over 1998–2016 compared to 1979–1997.” Of course, the authors, being biased towards the universal boogeyman of CO2, had only one thing on their minds. But a recent essay…
