Arctic Sea Ice : January 2016 was Lowest ever recorded 1

The National Snow and Ice data Center keeps track of the amount of sea ice over the Arctic and updates it all daily. Over time, each and every year, it keeps getting lower and lower and this January was the lowest ever recorded – the above is their chart illustrating exactly that. Notice that the blue line represents this season (2015-2016) and records exactly where things soon on 3rd February. Never before in all the time they have been recording has […]

The consensus on Climate change … is it really 97%? – #Climate

Often discussions on Climate Change will have the observation that there is a 97% consensus that it is all quite real, and since that message is getting out it is very often quoted … Ever so slight flaw, in reality it is not 97% of scientists who agree, and so that prompts a few questions such as “where does 97% come from?”, and if it is not correct, there what is the percentage?” Where does the 97% come from? Its origins […]

Climate Change: Sucking the sun dry

We have a global agreement for dealing with Climate Change, and as I’m sure you are already aware, that agreement was (perhaps as expected) reached in Paris. As described in Mother Jones … officials from more than 190 countries swept aside monumental differences and agreed to an unprecedented global deal to tackle climate change.

Climate Change: The Melting ice in Greenland

I’m going to ask just 3 questions about the Melting Ice due to Climate change … Exactly how much melting ice occurred in Greenland during the summer of 2015? Do we observe sea level rising each and every year? What happens if all the ice melts, how high will sea level reach? Exactly how much Melting Ice occurred in Greenland during the summer of 2015? Let’s start with what has been measured so far this year. If we asked the question, “exactly how […]

Global Warming denial is a rapidly shrinking demography in the US

Some good news has popped up, and so as reported here … With NASA reporting that 2015 is on track to be the hottest year on record for Earth and as parts of the Western United States are gripped by extreme drought, Americans are less likely than at any time since 2008 to say there is not solid evidence of global warming. The latest results of the National Survey on Energy and the Environment (NSEE) from the University of Michigan and Muhlenberg College finds […]
