Claim: Mathematical discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer may change everything about the climate debate

Now don’t get excited, the above title comes from an Australian paper that is promoting a claim that is quite frankly BS, and this is not simply your ordinary BS, it has been dressed up to come across as credible … A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science. He has found that, while the underlying […]

No more Climate Change Deniers … with a stroke of a pen they are all gone

So the news is in fact about the news itself, or to be more precise, is about a decision that has been taken by Associated Press, they have decided that they will no longer deploy the term “skeptic” or “denier” to describe those that reject the current scientific consensus regarding manmade climate change. Their blog explains (Yes, AP have their own blog)  … We have reviewed our entry on global warming as part of our efforts to continually update the Stylebook […]


Will there be a Mini Ice age in 2030? … Nope. 1

If you are plugged into the media, then you will have seen stories popping up about a a mini Ice age in 2030 and of course we get the usual qualifiers … “scientists predict” … so it just must be true. You can find the story in Wired, CNN, and many other outlets including the Daily Mail (anything you find in the Daily Mail these days is an immediate red flag that you need to be highly skeptical). So who exactly is promoting […]


Climate Change – The latest Numbers

If you still have doubts regarding the reality of Climate Change, then you really do need to read the article that Dan Sung has written within the UK’s Independent.

It was Jim Inhofe, the Chair of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works He brought a snowball on to the Senate floor […]

Twitter Storm on Climate Change and Balance at the BBC

Physicist Helen Czerski has managed to stir things up recently when tweeting about Climate Change: The Inconvenient Facts. To set the ball rolling climate scientist Michael Mann took to Twitter to complain that the BBC was “actively promoting misinformation” about man-made climate change, and in reply Helen Czerski, responded that the show is “v. balanced in sense that there is no “skeptic” voice.” … … and that then sets things rolling … … etc (I’ll leave the rest up to your imagination).

Arctic sea ice reaches lowest maximum ever recorded

As you might indeed expect, the ice covering the Arctic sea oscillates, we have the summer melt that is then followed by the winter freeze, and as we pass through these regular cycles the National Snow and Ice Data Centre measures what is happening and reports the latest on a daily basis. How? They get reliable measurements of the sea ice extent from satellites that pass over the  polar region several times each day. To monitor Arctic sea ice, NSIDC primarily has used […]
