Model predicts more storm surge, but they use what appears to be a fake photo in the press release:

From the University of Copenhagen here at Eurekalert More hurricane surges in the future By examining the frequency of extreme storm surges in the past, previous research has shown that there was an increasing tendency for storm hurricane surges when the climate was warmer. But how much worse will it get as temperatures rise in…

Dueling papers on Tropical Cyclone Frequency

Who to believe? One paper/press release says TC’s are occurring more frequently, another says they aren’t. I tend to believe the latter, because there seems to be more supporting data from other sources for it, such as Dr. Ryan Maue’s tropical cyclone research. See below. First, from the University of Copenhagen Tropical cyclones are occurring…

Abrupt changes in GHCN station-level temperature records contradict the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) claims.

Guest post by Jens Raunsø Jensen Preamble Inspired by a statement by Dr. Kevin Trenberth in the e-mails referred to as Climategate 2.0 (#3946 discussed here), it is hoped that climate scientists will have “an open enough mind to even consider” that the global warming of the 20th century could have occurred mainly as abrupt…

The 500 year FUD about sea levels

Ah, once again in response to a fearmongering press release, we see the obligatory “NYC is flooded” photoshop trick. But guess what? I’ve already debunked that photo as impossible for the time frame. More on that later after we do the math on the press release that prompted this. First the press release, from the…

New study suggests Arctic 'tipping point' may not be reached

This is interesting. While there’s much noise from alarmists that we are on an “Arctic death spiral” the team for this paper’s press release today found evidence that ice levels were about 50% lower 5,000 years ago. The paper references changes to wind systems which can slow down the rate of melting (something we’ve seen…

Surgical anesthetic gases coming under fire for global warming potential – Only one problem: they haven't been observed in the atmosphere

The press release below is from the University of Copenhagen Department of Chemistry. The anesthetic gases isofluran, desflurane and sevoflurane are coming under scrutiny for global warming potential. However, what isn’t stated in the press release is this important paragraph of the scientific paper : There are no production numbers available in the literature for…
