If this keeps up…” Neven, “Record Arctic Sea Ice Melt to Levels Unseen in Millennia”,…

Study says global warming caused by CFCs interacting with cosmic rays, not carbon dioxide

From the University of Waterloo, an extraordinary claim. While plausible, due to the fact that CFC’s have very high GWP numbers, their atmospheric concentrations compared to CO2 are quite low, and the radiative forcings they add are small by comparison to CO2. This may be nothing more than coincidental correlation. But, I have to admit,…

But GISS…

Younger Dryas -The Rest of the Story!

WUWT readers may recall this recent story: New evidence of Younger Dryas extraterrestrial impact The story below provides much more detail about the Younger Dryas event and the split that has developed in the scientific community over the cause. I’ve added this graph below from NCDC to give readers a sense of time and magnitude of…

Tisdale on Polar Amplification

Polar Amplification: Observations versus IPCC Climate Models Guest post by Bob Tisdale We’ve illustrated and discussed polar amplification in a few posts in the past. See here and here. Wikipedia has a short blurb about it: Polar amplification is the greater temperature increases in the Arctic compared to the earth as a whole as a result…
