The planet is no longer warming

Guest Post By Javier         We define “warming” as a positive rate of temperature change over time. According to the main hypothesis, warming since 1951 has been due almost exclusively to the increase in GHGs (greenhouse gases), of which CO2 is the most important one. The IPCC does not find anything else…

Modern Climate Wavelet Patterns

Guest Post by Renee Hannon Wavelet analyses of modern global temperature anomalies provides an excellent visualization tool of temperature signal characteristics and patterns over the past 150 years. Scafetta recognized key temperature oscillations of about 9, 20 and 60-years using power spectra of global surface temperature anomalies. There has been much discussion about the 60-year…

Scientific Apophenia

Guest Essay by Kip Hansen   Science, as a whole, advances or fails to advance in large part in a direct relationship to the presence or absence of bias in its research efforts.  There are many types of bias, and these have been discussed in the pages of various Climate Science blogs and publications over…

Quiz: Which 30-Year Warming Period Is Recent?

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale THREE MAPS ILLUSTRATING SIMILAR GLOBAL SURFACE TEMPERATURE CHANGES OVER DIFFERENT 30-YEAR PERIODS The GISS map-making webpage allows users to create global maps of surface temperature anomalies for specific time periods or to create maps of the change in surface temperatures over user-defined time periods based on local linear trends. My…

More Alarmist Nonsense with the Release of the Redundant* NOAA Global Temperature Data for February 2016

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale *Or Maybe the GISS Land-Ocean Temperature Index is Redundant. In the post Alarmism Cranked Up to Absurd Level, we discussed the misleading media reports about the temporary February 2016 El Niño-related uptick in monthly global surface temperature data from the Goddard Institute of Space Studies. There have been numerous new…

Climate Models are NOT Simulating Earth’s Climate – Part 4

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale Alternate Title: Climate Models Undermine the Hypothesis of Human-Induced Global Warming According to the hypothesis of human-induced global warming, manmade greenhouse gases create an energy imbalance at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere, which causes the Earth to retain heat. One of the hypothetical results of that retained heat is…

A new "End of Snow" Prediction

Guest essay by Eric Worrall A new study has emerged predicting the end of snow, along with melting glaciers and water shortages – though this study is cautious enough to predict more snow, less snow, or no change, for at least the next few decades. The potential for snow to supply human water demand in…
