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’
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? A wobble in the moon’s orbit is partly to blame
our study didn’t detect a signal [for farting 🦄] it is plausible that any change currently underway could be masked by the large variation between years and between decades [i.e.weather]. Any significant change [in farting 🦄] would have a substantial effect on Europe’s weather and climate... we take VISA, PayPal and Bitcoin The signal that … Continue reading Met Office study discusses invisible Gulf Stream climate signal?

Europe heat wave attribution to man-made climate change is the same kind of nonsense we saw with the hot dry summers of 2010-12 (and it’s showing up again where and when it gets hot everywhere around the planet). Still, on the bright side, it gives me a chance to show what we know and how … Continue reading It’s the Atlantic Stupid, Joe Bastardi on the European Heatwave

The BBC has quite an interesting article on the history of air conditioning which inadvertently shows how deluded some assumptions, twisted by the belief in the carbon dioxide thermostat control knob, can be; I'd happen to agree with many of the more zany ideas akin to a science fiction dystopia where we torch/nuke the atmosphere, in our … Continue reading BBC – Air Con is Bad mkay but don’t worry we can always torch the skies
What a relief that there is no model in sight
By Paul Homewood
Compiled by Dr Ole Humlum, Professor of Physical Geography at the University Centre in Svalbard (Norway), the new climate survey is in sharp contrast to the habitual alarmism of other reports that are mainly based on computer modelling and climate predictions.
Among the key findings of the survey are:
** While 2016 was one of the warmest years on record, global temperatures dropped back at the end of the year to levels prior to the strong 2015/16 El Niño. This fact suggests that much of the global 2015–16 temperature peak was caused by a one of the strongest El Niños on record.
** Since 2003, the global temperature estimate based on surface station measurements has consistently drifted away from the satellite-based estimate in a warm direction, and is now about 0.1◦C higher.
** Much of the heat given off during the 2015–16 El Niño appears to…

In his latest post Paul Homewood looks at rainfall trends in England and Wales and finds: "On average, it is fair to say that it is a little bit wetter now than it used to be in the early 19thC. But above all it is the year to year variability which dominates the record, just … Continue reading The Ups and Downs of Rainfall Trends
