The Sydney Morning Herald ran this article – Typhoon Haiyan influenced by climate change, scientists say – there must be hundreds of articles written along the same general drift. In this case a map of sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies is presented by the SMH for the period 3rd to 5th Nov. Note the location [...]
Those of us who know the ABC well would be surprised to see such an article – presumably the pressure behind the scenes has demanded some sort of explanation – a form of damage control. Pacific cooling explains slowdown in global warming: study
Tim was well known around Canberra climate sceptics and has a www site WELCOME TO TIM CURTIN’S CYBERHOME. Bio notes about Tim. Funeral Notice from the Canberra Times 7 August 2013
Japanese scientist Kyoji Kimoto proposes that there is a long standing error in IPCC AGW theory. According to IPCC’s AGW theory,Climate Sensitivity CS (With Feedback WF) is expressed as follows. CS(WF)=CS(No Feedbck NF)x(Feedback effects)=1.2K x 2.5=3K
In IPCC theory, it is the most important postulation that CS(NF) is 1.2K, which is based on Cess’s calculation [...]
Saw this gem headlined – Sudden stratospheric warming responsible for UK’s icy blast – which contrives to blame cold wintry conditions on warming without mentioning (in 475 words), that the temperature fluctuations in the stratosphere are associated with migration of the jetstream. But if you listen to the video explanation by Peter Gibb you will [...]
That is a big call – like many I have been watching the SOI unable to make up its mind. Anyway – read what the Bureau of Meteorology is saying. “Forecasters surprised by El Nino turnaround” on ABC news Pacific’s late retreat to neutral considered unusual – Bom official statement 23 October 2012 Recent (preliminary) [...]
This has been sent in by Dr Douglas Hoyt to promote discussion – what do readers think?
The greenhouse effect works by having an additional CO2 molecule absorb radiation and re-emit it back to the surface resulting in a net warming of the system. The anti-greenhouse effect works by having an additional CO2 molecule [...]
Timothy Curtin, “Applying Econometrics to the Carbon Dioxide “Control Knob”,” The Scientific World Journal, vol. 2012, Article ID 761473, 12 pages, 2012. doi:10.1100/2012/761473. Download a copy and lets have your views.
They say – “We, the undersigned, respectfully request that NASA and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) refrain from including unproven remarks in public releases and websites. We believe the claims by NASA and GISS, that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change are not substantiated, especially when considering [...]
This global “cold snap” looks more significant than the one we highlighted last month. I mean the current trace is further below the skein of annual traces than it was in January.
