Earths Energy Imbalance

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I see that there’s a new post up on WUWT claiming that eeevil humans are responsible for the increase in earth’s energy imbalance, which is…

Claim: ‘Less than 1% probability’ that Earth’s energy imbalance increase occurred naturally, say Princeton and GFDL scientists

“The satellite record provides clear evidence of a human-influenced climate system,” they said. “Knowing that human activity is responsible for the acceleration of planetary heat uptake implies the need for…

A WUWT “Comment Rebuke”

To summarize without any math, the GHE exists. It experimentally must, and easily provably does. The GHE issues are how much when (ECS), not if. Any ‘skeptical’ arguments to the…

Mathematical Proof of the Greenhouse Effect

As a physicist, I’m as certain of the reality of the Greenhouse Effect as I am that 1 + 1 = 2.

Answer to a review of Seim and Olsen paper: “The influence of IR Absorption and Backscatter Radiation from CO2”

By Thorstein Seim and Borgar T. Olsen A review in WattsUpWithThat was performed on our paper by Kevin Kilty. It is found here. The reviewer´s criticism of the paper was…

Deconstructing Wilde and Mulholland’s Analysis of Earth’s Energy Budget

Unfortunately, I expect that it is impossible to say, a priori, what the energy recycling fraction β of an atmosphere will be. I believe it is an emergent property of…

Review of Seim and Olsen paper: “The influence of IR Absorption and Backscatter Radiation from CO2…”

Thus, not only does the calculated irradiance seem in error by about 20% over erroneous use of the Stefan-Boltzmann law, but the known bias of the sensor combined with the…

Complete Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Back in 2015 in a post called “Noise Assisted Data Analysis“, I described a way to decompose a signal into its underlying components. It’s known…

A Chain Of Effects

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In looking at the climate I’m often reminded of Sufi stories. The Sufis are an ancient mystical sect. They are often associated with Islam, and…

The Lungs of Gaia

A fundamental concept at the heart of climate science is the contention that the solar energy that the disk of the Earth intercepts from the Sun’s irradiance must be diluted…

Carbon emissions are chilling the atmosphere 90km above Antarctica, at the edge of space

While greenhouse gases are warming Earth’s surface, they’re also causing rapid cooling far above us, at the edge of space. In fact, the upper atmosphere about 90km above Antarctica is…

Nitrogen in permafrost soils may exert great feedbacks on climate change

Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of SciencesShare Print E-Mail What nitrogen is getting up to in permafrost soils may be much more interesting than researchers have long believed–with potentially significant consequences…

Dynamics of the Tropical Atmosphere and Oceans

Reposted from Dr. Judith Curry’s Climate Etc. Posted on June 9, 2020 by curryja by Judith Curry Peter Webster’s magnum opus is now published: Dynamics of the Tropical Atmosphere and…

New threat to ozone recovery

From EurekAlert! Public Release: 20-Dec-2018 New threat to ozone recovery Study finds chloroform emissions, on the rise in East Asia, could delay ozone recovery by up to 8 years Massachusetts…

The Atmospheric Lapse Rate and Molar Density

By Andy May, Michael Connolly and Ronan Connolly In this post, we will discuss the tropopause, atmospheric molar density and the lapse rate (the change in atmospheric temperature with altitude).…

Comments on the Connolly’s Atmospheric Physics Papers

My links to comments did not survive, so I added more information to help find the original comments in the original post. The following comments are from Dr. Ronan Connolly…

Review and Summary of three Important Atmospheric Physics Papers

by Andy May Introduction In 2014, Dr. Michael Connolly and Dr. Ronan Connolly posted three important, non-peer reviewed papers on atmospheric physics on their web site. These papers can be…
