Duke Neukom's Secret Sauce

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In my last post, I talked about the “secret sauce”, as I described it, in the Neukom et al. study “Inter-hemispheric temperature variability over the…

Neukom's Science By Proxy

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Over at Climate Audit, Steve McIntyre is engaged in the slow public defenestration of the latest multi-proxy extravapalooza, a gem of a paper yclept “Inter-hemispheric…

'Ozone hole' may be a warming factor due to wind shifts

First, a clarification; while the AGU calls it an “ozone hole”, it technically isn’t. As NASA says here, it really isn’t a “hole” in the true sense of the word,…

Pollution in Northern Hemisphere helped cause 1980s African drought

From the University of Washington: Decades of drought in central Africa reached their worst point in the 1980s, causing Lake Chad, a shallow lake used to water crops in neighboring…

Those who don't learn from Yamal, are condemned to repeat it – Marcott’s YAD061

You’d think academics in the upside down Mann climate proxy world would pay attention, and not repeat the same mistakes of the past. Apparently not. WUWT readers surely recall the…

Future shifts in rainfall

From UC Berkeley: Rising temperature difference between hemispheres could dramatically shift rainfall patterns in tropics By Robert Sanders, Media Relations  BERKELEY — One often ignored consequence of global climate change…

New study: Ocean-driven warming along the western Antarctic Peninsula needs to be considered as part of a natural centennial timescale cycle of climate variability

From Cardiff University: Tiny fossils hold answers to big questions on climate change Research explores 12,000 year fossil record The western Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest warming regions…

So much for the theory that AGW increases water vapor and positive feedback

I liked this part: According to the study an important issue remains as to why the poleward expansion is largest in autumn, and there is still uncertainty about the role…

New study finds that a Carrington class solar event could cause global cooling of more than 3C

A paper recently published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics finds that “a solar proton event, if it took place in the near future with an intensity similar to that ascribed…
