There is no Carbon Pollution Effect: The Proof


The table shows the average temperature at the 1000 millibar pressure level (sea level) for the Southern Hemisphere for the last seven decades. The warmest decade is marked in red and the coolest in blue.

The warmest decade in January occurred in 1979-1988.  The failure to warm indicates that the much celebrated hypothetical link between carbon dioxide and atmospheric temperature is absent. Carbon dioxide is well mixed. It’s supposed effects on the temperature of the atmosphere, via ‘back radiation’ should be present in all locations, at all times, continuously. Plainly, if it skips the entire southern hemisphere, in January, for thirty years, its a furphy. A ‘furphy’ is an Australian term for an erroneous or improbable story that is claimed to be factual.

The data is from the NCEP reanalysis accessible here:

NCEP reanalysis provides a record of the characteristics of the atmosphere at seventeen pressure levels from the…

Bill Nye, Bad Science Guy

Science Matters

Bill Nye has a history of pushing bad science, including but not limited to climate change/global warming. Alex Berezow explains at American Council on Science and Health Bill Nye Is A Terrible Spokesman For Science.  Excerpts in italics with my bolds

When I was a kid, Bill Nye the Science Guy was a thing. I never watched his show (as I was too busy keeping up with Ren & Stimpy), but he seemed fun enough. If I could go back in time, I’d probably watch.

Some years later, Bill Nye experienced a resurgence in popularity. But instead of the old, nerdy-but-lovable Bill Nye, we got Bill Nye 2.0, a somewhat cantankerous scold who clearly knows less about science than he leads on.

It was clear that something was amiss a few years ago when, amid Nye’s renewed celebrity status, it came to light that he aired an episode…

Overheating Climate Models


By Paul Homewood

There is often debate about the accuracy of climate models, which predict temperature changes.

It is worthwhile then reviewing what IPCC AR5 had to say in 2013:



It is the top row of graphs which is relevant.

Essentially HADCRUT4 showed virtually no warming between 1998 and 2012, whilst models projected over 0.1C per decade. Bear in mind that these are historical simulations, effectively retro projections, rather than forecasts made in 1998.

Clearly something had badly gone wrong with the climate models, which even the IPCC could not explain away. It is true that the rate of warming between 1984 and 1998 was greater than the models suggested, but we also know that this period coincided with the warm phases of both the PDO and AMO.

And what has happened since 2013?

We have of course experienced two years of record El Nino activity, but global temperatures last…

Dennis Prager radio interview and the sleaziness of the New York Times


I spent an hour earlier today talking to radio show hostDennis Prager about my new book and the corruption of polar bear science in the name of climate change. Having read the book, he was properly outraged to learn about the New York Times hit piece on me from April of last year, as were others at the time (see here and here).

The interview today took up the last hour of Prager’s time slot, for those who want to listen can find it here.

Land and Sea Temps: April Southern Exposure

Science Matters


With apologies to Paul Revere, this post is on the lookout for cooler weather with an eye on both the Land and the Sea.  UAH has updated their tlt (temperatures in lower troposphere) dataset for April.   Previously I have done posts on their reading of ocean air temps as a prelude to updated records from HADSST3. This month also has a separate graph of land air temps because the comparisons and contrasts are interesting as we contemplate possible cooling in coming months and years.

Presently sea surface temperatures (SST) are the best available indicator of heat content gained or lost from earth’s climate system.  Enthalpy is the thermodynamic term for total heat content in a system, and humidity differences in air parcels affect enthalpy.  Measuring water temperature directly avoids distorted impressions from air measurements.  In addition, ocean covers 71% of the planet surface and thus dominates surface temperature estimates.  Eventually we…

Bad Data Makes Bad Climate Science

PA Pundits - International

From the team at CFACT ~

When evaluating extremely important information do you rely on shaky data or unverified research? Of course not. But that’s what many climatologists and their cheerleaders in the press and politics are asking us to do with climate change. They want us to commit trillions of dollars to make giant societal changes with only a poor understanding of climate dynamics and man’s potential impacts to climate variability. Guest host Marc Morano of CFACT’s Climate Depot explains.

New Satellite Data Confirm Real World Temperature Cooler Than Climate Models

PA Pundits - International

From the team at CFACT ~

Newly published data gathered by NASA’s AIRS satellite confirm the Earth is warming more slowly than has been forecast by climate activists and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Data gathered from 2003 through 2017 confirm temperatures remained essentially flat from 2003 through 2015, finally rising briefly as a strong El Nino formed in 2015 and lasted into 2016 ( Even with El Nino adding an illusory warming spike at the end of the period, temperatures still rose just over 0.2 degrees during the 15-year period. That pace works out to less than 1.5 degrees of warming per century.

IPCC initial forecasts called for 0.3 degrees Celsius of warming per decade, while skeptic forecasts have tended to hover around 0.1 degrees. As temperatures warmed more slowly than IPCC predicted, IPCC reduced its forecasts to meet skeptics in the middle…
