Every year lately is being called the warmest year ever. Each time such declarations are made, hand wringing and demands for action are made, and just like years past, such declarations are completely wrong. To say that objective science has taken a back seat to politics on the topic of climate, doesn’t even begin to […]

The news has been everywhere, that July of 2015 was the hottest month in recorded history. I could link dozens of news articles about it, but instead I will simply link the source page. Here is the quote from the NOAA on the new all-time record high temperature for the planet Earth. “The […]

I saw this headline and it made me cringe. Local 2014 Chicago Has Been Coldest In 110 Years December 3, 2014 10:41 AM . . This truly highlights the difference between the nearly meaningless GHCN dataset, and what has been measured over the past 35 years using satellites. Meanwhile, the NCEP data that has high […]

Here are the SSTs for October since 1998. Usually at this time of year, the northern Pacific and Atlantic have had a positive temperature anomaly. The opposite is true this year. Here are the anomaly maps since 1998. Large scale ocean events like this need to persist for months to have a major impact, […]

Anyone see how many cold records the US had in the first week of Spring? I don’t know if there are records for setting records, but this is up there.

While it took me a while to get the time together to write an article about the Marcott paper, that does not mean I have not been looking at it and discussing it from nearly the day it was released. There has been lots of discussion within The Right Climate Stuff group that I have been involved in. The ones that lean towards CO2 as something to be concerned about were initially rather excited about this paper, but that has taken a course correction as it has become clear how poor the science is in the Marcott paper.

With two completed months of the year there is starting to be discussion of how 2013 is shaping up for the annual anomaly. Several comments around the web have caught my attention as they demonstrate a basic misunderstanding of how the Earth’s climate is behaving. This is one of those articles that may seem OCD, but this one misunderstanding is what allows warmists to get away with as much as they do when it comes to climate.

That is the local temperature anomaly for Boise, Idaho for the entire month of January in 2013. It is by far the coldest month I have experienced since the early 1990’s and that was in a different place that was much, much colder than the January I just experienced. Of course a low anomaly doesn’t […]

When I attended the conference back in May, I met several members of The Right Climate Stuff. In the course of the conference there was a fair amount of discussion and I gave them several copies of my book so they could take a look at what I have put together. To me it was interesting because they were asking the same type of questions that I had been asking myself several years ago when I started to get involved in the science of the Earth’s climate.

Hot weather has been much in the news of late. This is especially true in the United States where there have been some real scorchers in the past month. Needless to say that when the temperature is high, so is the news about global warming. I will be the first to admit that there has been less of it than I expected, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been an avalanche of news about how this summer is what global warming looks like.
