Perth engineer claims huge climate change discovery

A Perth-based engineer claims to have de-bunked the popular mathematical equation used to model climate change. According to Dr David Evans, the popular modelling of climate change is far more dramatic than the truth. Dr Evans, who holds six degrees in mathematics and is a former climate modeller for the government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, claims to have found an error in the application of the equation.

MASSIVE GLOBAL COOLING process discovered as Paris climate deal looms

As world leaders get ready to head to Paris for the latest pact on cutting CO2 emissions, it has emerged that there isn’t as much urgency about the matter as had been thought.

A team of top-level atmospheric chemistry boffins from France and Germany say they have identified a new process by which vast amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted into the atmosphere from the sea – a process which was unknown until now, meaning that existing climate models do not take account of it.

New book: Doubt and Certainty in Climate Science

Doubt and Certainty in Climate Science is an important new book that everyone should read. And it’s free. In this post I provide a brief overview of the book, biosketch of Alan Longhurst, some additional backstory on the book, and my own comments on the book.

Modelling Caribbean Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Trends

Introducing their work, Ryu and Hayhoe (2015) say they evaluated “the ability of global climate models participating in phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) to reproduce observed seasonality and inter-annual variability of temperature over the Caribbean.” And what did their efforts reveal about the subject?

Simulation system provides integrated approach to crop and climate change models

Earth’s fields and forests, oceans and aquifers, and animals of the land, sea and sky don’t exist in a vacuum. But too often, environmental and agricultural models treat them as if they do. Truly understanding the role that climate and climate change plays on them calls for an integrated approach.

Carbon Sink Reborn: Oceanic CO2 Uptake Is Back

The Southern Ocean is only 25 percent of the total surface of the world’s oceans, but the finding that it accounts for 40 percent of the global oceanic uptake of that man-made CO2 could impact climate models and helping to insure policy makers fix the right problem, and not simply the problem that environmental groups throw the most money and lawyers at.

Climate change: Seven indisputable facts

The truth is there are more questions about climate change than there are answers. For instance, even the most advanced climate models all failed to predict the lack of warming the Earth has experienced over the last 18 years. But the president and his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) refuse to let facts get in the way of their determination to impose greater government control over the lives of the American people.
