Recent Climate-Related Research finds no Evidence of a Global Temperature “Hockey Stick” Increase

“Within the last month, another 14 papers have been published that continue to cast doubt on the popularized conception of an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times.” Click here for the Notrickszone

Resetting US Climate Change Policy

Based on past conferences this is well worth the cost and time to attend.

Climates Change! The charge of”climate change denial” is complete nonsense

There are legitimate disagreements over climate science and the usefulness of climate models. Scientists on all sides of any climate issue are all working from the same observational data except when governments refuse to release data as in the case of ClimateGate. Then climate science is distorted.

The climate has changed, is changing, and will change in the future.  The media mantra that so and so is just a climate change denier is complete nonsense. In this case (here) it is the EPA administrator who is being attacked. Whatever EPA does one way or the other will have no meaningful effect on how climates change. These sorts of name calling attacks occur when the name calling accuser has little to no science to back their position. At this point it’s all about protecting the institution or agency’s government funding and little to do with science.

Natural Variability Dominates Climate

In the recently published scientific literature, distinguishing between a presumably human-caused influence on climatic trends and natural or internal variability (or “noise”) has not only become more and more difficult, scientists are increasingly pointing out that an anthropogenic signal in climate trends “has yet to be detected above the level of natural climate variability.”  click here for the NoTricksZone

“Fake Climate News” Photoshops in Penguins

“MSN appears to be a source of climate fear mongering and “fake climate news” based on their story under the headlines Antarctica hits record high temperature at balmy 63.5°F .” click here for WUWT

Global lukewarming

“When it comes to global warming, most people think there are two camps: “alarmist” or “denier” being their respective pejoratives. Either you acknowledge the existence of man-made climate change and consider it a dire global threat, or you deny it exists at all. But there is a third group: the “lukewarmers.” In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Pat Michaels and Chip Knappenberger explain the real science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: global warming is not hot—it’s lukewarm. Climate change is real, it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated—with many of the headline-grabbing predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible.” click here

NOAA Manipulated Climate Records to Discredit Hiatus

U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology members today responded to reports about the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) 2015 climate change study (“the Karl study”). According to Dr. John Bates, the recently retired principal scientist at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, the Karl study was used “to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.” click here
