Record Antarctic Stratospheric Warming Causes Sept. 2019 Global Temperature Update Confusion

From Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog October 4th, 2019 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. While the vast majority of our monthly global temperature updates are pretty routine, September 2019 is proving to be a unique exception. The bottom line is that there is nothing wrong with the UAH temperatures we originally reported. But what I…

Earth As A Solar Collector

Guest post by Kevin Kilty Introduction Within the past week or two we have read posts from Dr. Spencer (6/7/2019), Nick Stokes (6/6/2019), Lord Monckton (6/8/2019), and Willis Eschenbach (6/8/2019) covering a variety of topics involving simple block models; and each one involving, in one way or another, climate feedback. I have had a few…

Electric-blue night clouds are invading the U.S.

Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog I have personally cussed out Dr. Spencer for adding an item to my bucket list which had been almost complete.~ctm June 11th, 2019 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Over the next few weeks, mid-latitude observers might experience the best noctilucent cloud viewing of their lifetimes. Extremely high-altitude noctilucent…

Latest Global Temp. Anomaly (May ’19: +0.32°C) A Simple “No Greenhouse Effect” Model of Day/Night Temperatures at Different Latitudes

Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s blog June 7th, 2019 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Abstract: A simple time-dependent model of Earth surface temperatures over the 24 hr day/night cycle at different latitudes is presented. The model reaches energy equilibrium after 1.5 months no matter what temperature it is initialized at. It is shown that…

On the Flat Earth Rants of Joe Postma

Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s blog June 4th, 2019 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Willis Eschenbach and I have been defending ourselves on Facebook against Joe Postma’s claims we have “flat Earth” beliefs about the radiative energy budget of the Earth. The guy is obviously passionate, as our discussion ended with expletive-laced insults hurled…
