There is no observational evidence of unusual long-term climate changes in North Carolina. The observations we have detailed in this review illustrate that year-to-year and decade-to-decade variability plays a greater role in North Carolina’s climate than any long-term trends. Such short-term variability will continue dominate North Carolina’s climate into the future. At the century timescale, North Carolina’s climate… Read More »
In this report, we review the long-term climate history of the United States and find little in the way of evidence that the on-going atmospheric build-up of greenhouse gases (“global warming”) has acted to alter the country’s general climate state. Moreover, what climate changes have occurred over the past century or so have largely been benign (or even… Read More »
In this report, we review the long-term climate history of Oregon and find little in the way of evidence that the greenhouse gas build-up in the atmosphere has done much to alter Oregon’s climate. While temperatures have generally appeared to have risen slightly across the state over the past 100 years, they have in fact fallen a bit… Read More »
A survey of the West Virginia temperature record reveals that temperature anomalies were stable or fell from 1905 to 2009. Raw data from a set of meteorological stations show cooling at the rate of ?0.6±0.2 ºC/century, while United States Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) Version 2 adjusted records for the same station set yield no change, 0.0±0.2 ºC/century. For… Read More »
This one doom has gradually swallowed up all the others, offering the prospect of one magnificent monolithic doom for all of us to marvel and tremble before. It was formerly known as “global warming,” but that famous brand has been changed to “climate change,” for reasons only an advertising agency could understand.
