Flogging the Dead Parrot of Climate Attribution

A few years back I wrote a rather joking post providing a script for, then Met Office’s chief scientist, Dame Julia Slingo. The recent [insert] weather is what we’d expect to see with [climate change]/[global warming]. We are loading the dice for more [insert] winters. All the evidence suggests [insert] are linked to [climate change]/[global … Continue reading Flogging the Dead Parrot of Climate Attribution

“Global Warming Causes Cold Weather” Theory Rises From The Dead Again!

New analysis attempts to reconcile differences between satellites and climate models

The degree of doublethink required to publish this is quite astonishing Rather than being an indicator of fundamental model errors, the model-satellite difference can largely be explained by natural fluctuations in Earth’s climate and imperfections in climate-model forcing agents It very much brings to mind what Jaime Jessop said back in July: In a normal … Continue reading New analysis attempts to reconcile differences between satellites and climate models

Arctic carbon conveyor belt discovered; ‘the surprise was great’

As Michael Shellenberger says Narcissism, nihilism, and fanaticism: the dark green triad. To have such certainty that it's all about us when our understanding and observation of the planets climate is so poor. The ocean carbon cycle [credit: IAEA] Nature’s carbon cycle works even better than was believed. The researchers say ‚it can be assumed … Continue reading Arctic carbon conveyor belt discovered; ‘the surprise was great’

Climate Change Risk to Castles? No, Just More BBC Fake News!

Before the Global Warming/Climate Change scam was a thing, this was well known. I was taught it in basic Geography and it was widely reported on news shows with erosion in one area, usually resulting from trying to save a beach elsewhere. But you'll never get the ideologues to understand. Their reaction to the cost … Continue reading Climate Change Risk to Castles? No, Just More BBC Fake News!

Satellite Temperature Data Show Almost All Climate Model Forecasts Over the Last 40 Years Were Wrong

If the Science™️ has taught me anything these recent years, it's when your theory doesn't fit the data, change the data. Image credit: livesci Maybe a climate model with no ‘ECS’ factor could do better? But anything that smacks of natural variation inevitably faces resistance from climate alarm promoters. – – – A major survey … Continue reading Satellite Temperature Data Show Almost All Climate Model Forecasts Over the Last 40 Years Were Wrong

What caused the world’s largest die-off of mangroves? A wobble in the moon’s orbit is partly to blame

While evidence clearly implicates El Niño, we found this climate cycle had a very large accomplice: the moon.In our study, published in Science Advances today, we mapped the expansion and contraction of mangrove forest cover over the past 40 years, and found clear evidence that the moon’s orbital wobble had an effect.Our mapping also shows … Continue reading What caused the world’s largest die-off of mangroves?

UK Heatwave Analysis I: Total Model Failure So . . . . . . It must be worse than we thought!

In a normal world, this would prompt scientists to conclude that the models were faulty and that perhaps the science and a priori assumptions which are built into them need to be re-examined. Or they would ask themselves, did some other factor or factors contribute significantly to this event? But no, in the world of post-normal, post Enlightenment ‘science’, the conclusion is that the models are right, but not right enough, in that they underestimate how bad heatwaves are getting, so then we get the inevitable siren call of alarmists everywhere: “Arrggghhh, it’s much worse than we thought! Urgent action is now super-urgent! Act now or we’re all going to die!”

Nevermind that extremes of temperature and/or precipitation were seen in the 1970s as a sign of global cooling. Nevermind that Piers Corbyn predicted this over a decade ago, as have many working on the solar influenced aspect of climate, including the magnitude of this event, which was preceded by a new moon and a strong flux in solar activity (correlation ≠ causation).

Or it could be natural variability, the swings of which our climate has shown time and time again it is more than capable of on short and long time scales. However, just like my childhood doctor, who diagnosed sausages (or any meat if you’d foresaken sausages) as the cause of every tummy upset, these quacks diagnose the gas of life as an excuse whatever the weather (except when the weather is quite ordinary they suddenly go silent).

We narcissistic humans think everything is caused by us, that we are the deities of this planet. Humility is a concept beyond cultists. Don’t be a ClimateQuack™️. Be humble.


That’s the basic message fromWorld Weather Attributionwho have – of course – run off a quick-fire, non peer-reviewed attribution analysis of the two day ‘heatwave’ which affected the UK on July 18th and 19th which – of course – concludes that it was man-made climate change wot dunnit.

Here’s what they say about their study, which we’ll look at in detail in Part II:

  • The likelihood of observing such an event in a 1.2°C cooler world is extremely low, and statistically impossible in two out of the three analysed stations.
  • The observational analysis shows that a UK heatwave as defined above would be about 4°C cooler in preindustrial times.
  • To estimate how much of these observed changes is attributable to human-caused climate change we combine climate models with the observations.It is important to highlight that all models systematically underestimate the observed trends. [My emphasis]…

Ned Nikolov: Does a Surface Solar Radiation Dataset Expose a Major Manipulation of Global Temperature Records?

Hubert Lamb wrote of the discrepancy between the documented cold period of the 60s and 70s and the continuing rise of CO2.


As Ned highlights, it had to be removed. They made sure the awkward moment of discovery never happened.


That’s how the party keep power – rewriting history and language.

This GWPF report covers Lamb’s work during that period:

Tallbloke's Talkshop

Once again it’s my pleasure to publish a new paper by Ned Nikolov and Karl Zeller at the Talkshop. In this study, we see the presentation of a climate conundrum, and recent surface solar radiation data which helps shed new light on the questions surrounding the ongoing adjustment of global temperature datasets. This new study applies theory developed in Ned and Karl’s previous paper to enable quantification of the global temperature drop during the “1970s ice-age scare”. This won’t be the last word on the topic, but it offers a solid grounding for further research.

Implications of a New Gridded Dataset of Surface Solar Radiation
for the Evolution of Earth’s Global Surface Temperature Since 1960

  1. Introduction

It is a matter of conventional wisdom now that the Earth was significantly cooler during 1960s compared to the 21st Century. Similarly, no one…
