Mainstream Media Ignores New Study: Present Sea Surface Temperatures “Indistinguishable” From Those During Last Interglacial…

…When Sea Levels Were Roughly 20 to 30 Feet Higher than Today Guest Post by Bob Tisdale Science recently published Hoffman, et al. (2017) Regional and global sea-surface temperatures during the last interglaciation. Not too surprisingly, the study has been ignored by the mainstream media. Why? As Science writes in their summary (my boldface): Sea…

…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…

Nothing Unusual about the Sea Surface Temperatures and Anomalies for the Hurricane Main Development Region at the 2016 Season’s Start

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale During the hurricane season, I’ll be adding the sea surface temperatures and anomalies of the Main Development Region of hurricane development in the North Atlantic to the Monthly Sea Surface Temperature Updates.  This post will serve as a reference. OVERVIEW The Main Development Region of the North Atlantic (10N-20N, 80W-20W)…
