What can be learned from a cursory glance at the data? That the CO2 concentration of Earth’s atmosphere appears to have had no consistent impact on July air temperatures in the vicinity of North Lake, Greenland, over the past seven millennia... Read More
Divining Future Winter Wheat Yields in the United Kingdom (21 May 2013)
It would appear that even the worst-case climate-change scenarios concocted by the world’s climate modelers are insufficient to overpower the positive effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment on country-wide winter wheat yields in the UK... Read More
Tropical Upper Tropospheric Warming: Models vs. Measurements (21 May 2013)
Once again, climate model results are shown to deviate significantly from real-world measurements; and there appears to be no improvement in this regard between the CMIP3 set of models and the newer and supposedly improved CMIP5 models... Read More
Changes in Global Precipitation Over Land in a Warming World (21 May 2013)
Does the climate of the...
Have they become more or less damaging over the past century of “unprecedented” global warming? No. It has declined since the early 1980s to values that are currently “far below the range witnessed in the 20th century” ... Read More
A Polar Dinoflagellate that Can Really Take the Heat (14 May 2013)
A new study demonstrates the incredible ability of Polarella glacialis to cope with an instantaneous temperature increase of up to 11°C, suggesting the much smaller temperature increase at the upper...
Even in places that are appreciated for their relative warmth, a change in the weather or shifting of the seasons to cooler conditions, rather than an equivalent increase in warmth, is typically the more deadly of the two types of temperature evolution... Read More
Scots Pine Stands of Estonia Are Growing Ever Better Nowadays (7 May 2013) What climate alarmists frequently claim is bad for the biosphere - rising temperatures and atmospheric CO2 concentrations - appears to actually be having a...
How good are the simulations of the most up-to-date climate models? Authors Kim et al. (2012) assessed the seasonal prediction skill for the Northern Hemisphere winter and found a number of biases that have yet to be overcome... Read More
Projections of CMIP5 Models: Will They Ever Come Together? (30 Apr 2013)
An unfortunate conclusion of this study is that “accepting model spread as a way to portray uncertainty of the projection estimate may result in an overestimation of the projected warming...
