Climate change news

Ice Ages come and Go

At ... scientists show solar system processes control the carbon cycle - throughout Earth's history (or at least that part of it in which humans have existed). Below is an image from the Jurasic coast of Dorset, the so called 'Belemnite Mud Member' - which is geological speak for a mudstone sedimentary formation that can be seen in the sea cliffs of the Jurassic coast. It seems a similar geological horizon exists in Wales, also with abundant fossils of marine belemnites ...

Greenhouse Gases

Interesting post at Pierre's web site - ... Earth's atmosphere is made up of 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen = 99%. In other words, according to mainstream climate scientists of the alarmist kind there are just 1% of greenhouse gases (such as co2). Nitrogen and Oxygen are said to not absorb infrared radiation yet some scientists have actually been saying they do radiate IR - since 1944.

Sea Levels

At ... I could have posted this under geology but the link is to a climate sceptic site in Germany. The claim is that 19 papers were published in 2019 affirming sea level was metres higher than today between 8 and 4 thousand years ago. Pierre Gosselin says this is an onslaught of paleo climate evidence for warmer than now Mid Holocene climate. Something was distinctly different back then.

Escape from Model Land

At ... letting go of the phantastical mathematical objects and achievables of model land can lead to more relevant information  in the real world ...

Holey holey

It seems the ozone hole has shrunk to a smaller size than it has been for many a day - or at least since scientists have started to monitor it (which isn't that long ago). It can hardly be an accident that it corresponds with a quiescent period on the Sun when sun spots have been few and far between - although the occasional hole on the surface has sent some mild projectiles of solar wind (plasma) in our general direction, providing us with the odd auroral display.

Missing Heat

Not sure what to make of this one. Is hype involved? It seems that Earth does not comply with the idea of a base temperature of around 16 degrees C. See for example ... average temperature is supposed to be around 16 degrees C but it is only 14.7 degrees C. It has been something similar for the last 20 years or so - and even earlier. What is going on?

Follow the Money

At ... a guest post by Dr Paul Rossiter. He claims the main engine driving the climate movement is money. Eye watering amounts of money. He said he became quite despondent when researching and writing the article as big and powerful forces were at work - in positions of power in the western world. For example, the capitalisation of the renewable energy industry is over One Trillion dollars.

Serious Flaws

At ... Japanese MIT climate scientist has written a book. Dr Mototaka Nakamura received his doctorate at MIT and worked at NASA. The title of his book - 'Confessions of a climate scientist: the global warming hypothesis is an uproven hypothesis'. As a teenager he seems to have become concerned about catastrophic global warming due to increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

co2 and climate

At ... two new additions to the steadily increasing evidence that co2 plays a minimal role in climate change. A former NOAA climate scientist (a meteorologist to be exact) published his article in Environmental Earth Sciences journal and detailed a lack of causal relationship between co2 concentration change and earth's temperature.

The Reef

At ... is it Armageddon? A giant raft of pumice from an undersea volcano is heading in the direction of the Great Barrier Reef. Indeed, it is being said that the pumice will not damage the reef but will cause it to prosper. This comes on the heels of a post by Jennifer Marohasy at her blog where she has recently participated in an underwater investigation of the reef and found it thriving - in the main.
