Reconciling predictions of climate change

From Eurekalert, New framework accounts for conflicting estimates of global temperature increases Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences   AUDIO: SEAS researchers Peter Huybers and Cristian Proistosescu resolved a major conflict in estimates of how much the Earth will warm in response to a doubling of carbon dioxide in the… view…

Why Climate Models Run Hot

by Rud Istvan,   EPA administrator Pruitt wants to “Red Team” the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) consensus best reflected in the IPCC assessment reports (AR). At its core, CAGW rests on just three propositions: 1. CO2 is a ‘greenhouse’ gas retarding radiative cooling. This should not be in serious dispute since Tyndall experimentally proved…

Because of the GISS and NOAA Press Conference about 2016 Global Surface Temperatures…

…A Reminder of How Horribly Climate Models Simulate the Surface Temperatures of Earth’s Oceans. Guest Post by Bob Tisdale This post serves as the annual model-data comparison for sea surface temperatures. INTRODUCTION Oceans cover about 70% of the surface of the Earth, yet climate models are far from properly simulating the surface temperatures of those…

Inconvenient: Studies find methane and carbon dioxide release is highest in the Arctic during the region’s cold season

From San Diego State University and the “say anything to support the cause” department, comes this press release written by a fellow who obviously does not understand what it means when researchers say: “[methane and carbon dioxide release] is highest in the Arctic during the region’s cold season“. Maybe now those alarmists like Paul Beckwith and…

Hurricane Main Development Region of North Atlantic – Climate Model-Simulated Sea Surface Temperatures Are Too Cool

And Those Too-Cool Surface Temperatures Create Obvious Problems for Researchers Guest Post by Bob Tisdale UPDATE:  The closing has been revised. The sea surface temperatures of the tropical North Atlantic are one of many factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of hurricanes. In fact, 26 deg C (about 79 deg F) is the…
