Searching for Warming in USHCN Data

Guest essay by Leland Park Before Climate Science, basic physics differentiated between the terms heat and temperature because they are related – but do not have the same meaning. The classic heat equation, from physics provides the principal relationship. Accordingly, the relationship between the heat content of a substance and changes in its temperature is…

Warmest January in satellite record leads off 2016

From the University of Alabama, Huntsville, and courtesy of the current El Niño here’s something climate advocates will probably like, even though they wrongly say the satellite record is no good. Notes on data released Feb. 4, 2016: As widely anticipated, global temperatures in January set a record for the month, eclipsing January 1998 as…
