Climatologist Michael E Mann: ‘Good people fall victim to doomism. I do too sometimes’

The author and eminent climate scientist on the deniers’ new tactics and why positive change feels closer than it has done in 20 years Michael E Mann is one of the world’s most influential climate scientists. He rose to prominence in 1999 as the co-author of the “hockey-stick graph”, which showed the sharp rise in […]

Doomsday AMOC “Tipping” Claimed In ‘Nature’ Already Refuted…New Study: AMOC “Shows No Decline”

A recent study appearing in Nature, “Current Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation weakest in last millennium“, authored by Caesar et al, hints at a global climate system on the verge of tipping out of control. According to their findings, the weakening of the so-called Atlantic Meridional Overturning Current (AMOC) in the 20th century is “unprecedented”, and […]

Texas repeatedly failed to protect its power grid against extreme weather

texas repeatedly failed to protect its power grid against extreme weather - Texas repeatedly failed to protect its power grid against extreme weather

This story was originally published by The Texas Tribune and ProPublica. In January 2014, power plants owned by Texas’ largest electricity producer buckled under frigid temperatures. Its generators failed more than a dozen times in 12 hours, helping to bring the state’s electric grid to the brink of collapse. The incident was the second in […]

Laschamps-ing at the bit

A placeholder to provide some space to discuss the paper last week (Cooper et al, 2021) on the putative climate consequences of the Laschamps Geomagnetic Excursion, some 42,000 yrs ago. There was some rather breathless reporting on this paper, but there were also a lot of sceptical voices – not of the main new result […]

Changes in Atlantic currents may have dire climate implications for the next century | Andrew Meijers

Without modifying human behavior we run the risk of violent weather swings and a drastic effect on crops and ocean life The ocean circulation that keeps our relatively northern corner of Europe warm(ish) is often likened to a gigantic conveyor belt bringing warm equatorial water northwards at the surface, balanced by cold southward flow at […]

Antarctica Has Been COOLING Over The Past Quarter Century, NASA’s Surface Station Data Show

NASA mean annual temperature data going back a quarter century show no warming over Antarctica By Kirye and Pierre Gosselin Where’s the warming and ice melt? Today we revisit 13 critical stations located on and around the Antarctic Peninsula. They are important because alarmists like to tell and scare us that the ice mass on […]

Atlantic Ocean circulation at weakest in a millennium, say scientists

Decline in system underpinning Gulf Stream could lead to more extreme weather in Europe and higher sea levels on US east coast The Atlantic Ocean circulation that underpins the Gulf Stream, the weather system that brings warm and mild weather to Europe, is at its weakest in more than a millennium, and climate breakdown is […]

Yet Another Model-Based Claim Of Anthropogenic Climate Forcing Collapses

High-resolution climate models have projected a “decline of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) under the influence of anthropogenic warming” for decades (Lobelle et al., 2020). New research that assesses changes in the deeper layers of the ocean (instead of “ignoring” these layers like past models have) shows instead that the AMOC hasn’t declined for […]
