NASA detects solar flare pulses at Sun and Earth

As we approach solar minimum and our sun winds down, the following story from phys.org relates to the first X-flare of solar cycle #24 (see below for the Spaceweather story on the flare itself) and a C class flare in July 2016 (the strongest so far that year shown above courtesy SDO). [Neither of which … Continue reading NASA detects solar flare pulses at Sun and Earth

Watch “2017 Hurricanes and Aerosols Simulation”

This is stunning to watch and the evolution of #Ophelia as it moves east and interacts with the Saharan Dust is illuminating although the Ellie Gouldings of the world will still blame #ClimateChange (see here). https://youtube.com/watch?v=h1eRp0EGOmE

Here’s The Inconvenient Truth Behind MIT’s Study Linking Hurricane Harvey To Global Warming

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

It was only a matter of time before some junk scientist blamed Hurricane Harvey on global warming.

It is probably no surprise either that it comes from Kerry Emmanuel.

Fortunately Michael Bastach has been quick to tear it to pieces:

A new study is making waves in the media, claiming to finally address the question of man-made global warming’s role in Hurricane Harvey’s record-setting rainfall.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Kerry Emanuel, a renowned hurricane expert, and his colleagues published their findings on Monday, claiming global warming increased the of risk Hurricane Harvey-level rainfall in southeastern Texas grew since the last century.

There’s one huge caveat: Emanuel didn’t actually study Hurricane Harvey itself.

Instead, Emanuel’s study is based on thousands of climate model runs to find out the odds a storm will bring the amount of rainfall Hurricane Harvey did when it made landfall in late…

2) Sea levels at Miami are rising at ten times the global rate.

I covered the story here.

I complained to the BBC at the time, and, after being fobbed off the first time, escalated the complaint to the Executive Complaints Unit, who have now published the above judgment.

Astonishingly, they regard the claims about “Atlantis” to be “soundly based”, even though they now accept that sea levels around Miami are only rising at about 8 inches a century.

Of course, they had no choice but to withdraw the ludicrous claim about “ten times the global rate”!

But why…
