Claim: Past evidence supports complete loss of Arctic sea-ice by 2035

A new study, published this week in the journal Nature Climate Change, supports predictions that the Arctic could be free of sea ice by 2035.

Similar warming and cooling trends occurred in the mid-nineteenth and eighteenth centuries From AGU highlights: A 308-year ice core record provides new data on climate variability in coastal West Antarctica…

The beginning of the end: warmists in retreat on sea level rise, climate sensitivity

The forecast: It seems there’s less chance of gloom and doom these days. For sea level rise, now a maximum of about two feet by 2100. As for climate sensitivity,…

Global warming and the Titanic II – on an epic collision course?

People send me stuff. This morning I got a note about a new study that says: Over the past decade, ice-loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet has been accelerating, raising…

Antarctic summer effect confined to peninsula

From the British Antarctic Survey , at least they didn’t pull a Steig and try to claim the observed effect on the Peninsula affects the entire continent. The peninsula is…

On noes! CO2 dissolving snails in Antarctica

From the British Antarctic Survey  and the University of East Anglia comes one of those press releases where I just have to wonder if this won’t eventually go the way…

Bipolar disorder – as in the Arctic, the Antarctic sea ice extent is affected by wind, unless of course it's 'climate change'

From the “no matter what happens it is climate change” department. So, according to this, when the Arctic loses ice it is due to climate change ‘global warming’ when the…

From the British Antarctic Survey New climate history adds to understanding of recent Antarctic Peninsula warming Results published this week by a team of polar scientists from Britain, Australia and…

New ice loss unit – the New Jersey

From the University of Texas at Austin, an ice shelf as big as New Jersey might collapse, if conditions are right. Tipping points and all that. I suspect this gives…
