A long view of California’s climate

Public Release: 4-Mar-2019 Study examines centuries of data to understand climate-wildfire links NOAA Headquarters Deadly severe wildfires in California have scientists scrutinizing the underlying factors that could influence future extreme events. Using climate simulations and paleoclimate data dating back to the 16th century, a recent study looks closely at long-term upper-level wind and related moisture…

Disrupting the Theory on PV and Global Warming

Disrupting the Theory on PV and Global Warming February 4, 2019 Guest post by Bob Vislocky From the “where theory doesn’t agree with the numbers” camp comes this Washington Post article and many others like it that we’re all familiar with by now which claims that global warming will cause more polar vortex disruptions thereby…

Disentangling California Drought

Here is Jim Steele’s newest column article for the Tribune and 5 other Marin papers,~ctm Pacifica Tribune column, January 16, 2019 What’s Natural? Disentangling California Drought Devastating droughts are a great concern. Droughts disrupt ecosystems, agriculture, and drinking water supplies. Contrary to headlines suggesting we have only 12 years before descending into climate hell with…

A condensed version of a paper entitled: “Violating Nyquist: Another Source of Significant Error in the Instrumental Temperature Record”.

By William Ward, 1/01/2019 The 4,900-word paper can be downloaded here: https://wattsupwiththat.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Violating-Nyquist-Instrumental-Record-20190112-1Full.pdf The 169-year long instrumental temperature record is built upon 2 measurements taken daily at each monitoring station, specifically the maximum temperature (Tmax) and the minimum temperature (Tmin). These daily readings are then averaged to calculate the daily mean temperature as Tmean = (Tmax+Tmin)/2. Tmax…

Shutdown Demonstrates How “Vital” Government Scientists Are… NOT

  Guest laugh by David Middleton The laugh is the fact that an article demonstrating the nonessential nature of government scientists, is titled “The Shutdown Shows Just How Vital Government Scientists Are”… ERIC NIILER SCIENCE 01.08.19 THE SHUTDOWN SHOWS JUST HOW VITAL GOVERNMENT SCIENTISTS ARE   INSTEAD OF FIGURING out how many Pacific hake fishermen…

The clever ruse of rising sea levels

Alarmists try to frighten people, and stampede them into terrible energy decisions Jay Lehr and Tom Harris For the past 50 years, scientists have been studying climate change and the possibility of related sea level changes resulting from melting ice and warming oceans. Despite the common belief that increasing levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in…

Calculating global temperature anomaly

By Nick Stokes, There is much criticism here of the estimates of global surface temperature anomaly provided by the majors – GISS, NOAA and HADCRUT. I try to answer these specifically, but also point out that the source data is readily available, and it is not too difficult to do your own calculation. I point…
