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?

Jaime Jessop ‘Met Office Attribution Study – Reading Chicken Entrails Might be the More Reliable Method’

A 'Climate Expert' inspects the latest CHIMP6 output for clues as to how it's all the fault of the peon masses. You’ve maybe heard of extreme weather attribution, where ‘scientists’ attempt to attribute a heatwave, storm or flood etc. to man-made climate change, some time after the event. You’ve heard of rapid extreme weather attribution where they fall over … Continue reading Jaime Jessop ‘Met Office Attribution Study – Reading Chicken Entrails Might be the More Reliable Method’

The Original Climate Crisis: How the Little Ice Age Devastated Early Modern Europe

The frost fairs held on the frozen River Thames in London are often invoked as evidence for an effect of the MM on climate. Such evidence is anecdotal in nature and, as pointed out by Jones & Mann (2004) and Jones (2008), can be misleading for a host of different reasons. The date of the … Continue reading The Original Climate Crisis: How the Little Ice Age Devastated Early Modern Europe

Climate of modern-day Europe mimics the climate of 14th century Europe, say researchers

We want to show that historical climate change can be reconstructed much better if written historical sources are incorporated alongside climate archives like tree rings or sediment cores. The inclusion of humanities research contributes to a better understanding of the social consequences of climate change in the past and to conclude the future Science, as … Continue reading Climate of modern-day Europe mimics the climate of 14th century Europe, say researchers

Met Office: Why Storm Eunice was so severe, and will violent wind storms become more common?

The Science™️ This is just like the fun with the polar vortex a few years ago, despite being well known about in the 1970s, but created instant media coverage as "experts" in The Science™️ immediately linked it with 🎶 ominous music plays 🎶 Climate Change. It's been Sudden Stratospheric Warmings, the Indian Dipole, El Nino … Continue reading Met Office: Why Storm Eunice was so severe, and will violent wind storms become more common?

Storm Eunice Update

Moreover the Met Office have only been measuring wind speeds there for a few years, which is why the Needles never used to appear in their weather reports. (I have asked the Met Office for the date it started. They do show wind speeds there for 1998, but it certainly was not mentioned in the … Continue reading Storm Eunice Update

Unraveling ‘Attribution’ Pseudoscience – No, the NW Pacific Heatwave Would NOT Have Been ‘Virtually Impossible’ Without Global Warming

To give a flavour of what utter BS these “attribution” claims are atmospheric scientist, Cliff Mass who is effectively the specialist when it comes to the Pacific Northwest used

peer-reviewed scientific literature to demonstrate that human-caused global warming played a very small role in the extreme heat event

He further wrote

the specific ingredients that led to the heatwave are […] a high-amplitude ridge of high pressure and an approaching low-pressure area that “supercharged” the warming. Second, it is shown that global warming only contributed a small about (1-2F) of the 30-40F heatwave and that proposed global warming amplification mechanisms (e.g., droughts, enhanced ridging/high pressure) cannot explain the severe heat event. It is shown that high-resolution climate models do not produce more extreme high temperatures under the modest global warming of the past several decades and that global warming may even work against extreme warming in our region. Importantly, this blog demonstrates that there is no trend towards more high-temperature records. Finally, the communication of exaggerated and unfounded claims by the media, some politicians, and several activists are discussed

Cliff Mass | Was Global Warming The Cause of the Great Northwest Heatwave? Science Says No.

It’s highly recommended as an antidote to the corpulant verbage being pumped out by champagne marxists posing as scientists.

climatecontrarian

This is what the media is claiming, this is what ‘scientists’ are claiming. This is what Matt McGrath at the BBC is claiming:

The searing heat that scorched western Canada and the US at the end of June was “virtually impossible” without climate change, say scientists.

In their study, the team of researchers says that the deadly heatwave was a one-in-a-1,000-year event.

But we can expect extreme events such as this to become more common as the world heats up due to climate change.

If humans hadn’t influenced the climate to the extent that they have, the event would have been 150 times less likely.

Scientists worry that global heating, largely as a result of burning fossil fuels, is now driving up temperatures faster than models predict.

I’m claiming BS, so let’s get straight to it. First of all, this analysis was not an analysis of a heatwave in the…
