Observed Climate Change and the Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse-gas Emission Limits in Texas

By | February 29, 2008

Variations in climate from year to year and decade to decade play a greater role in the Texan climate than any long-term trends. Short-term variability will continue to dominate the climate in future. The Texas climate shows no statically significant long-term trend in mean annual temperature, rainfall, floods, droughts, heatwaves, tornadoes, or hurricanes – still less any trend… Read More »

Observed Climate Change in North Carolina

By | February 26, 2008

There is no observational evidence of unusual long-term climate changes in North Carolina. No emissions reductions by North Carolina will have any detectable regional or global effect whatsoever on climate change.

Pseudoscientific elements in climate change research

By | February 15, 2008

Abstract Alarming statements from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concerning global warming are being challenged by a considerable number of scientists from different disciplines with a variety of arguments. The disputes comprise the collection and interpretation of data, the validation of hypotheses and climate models, the use of those models for scientific decision making, and… Read More »

Correction to: A 2000 Year Global Temperature Reconstruction Based on Non-tree ring proxies

By | February 12, 2008

A climatic reconstruction published in E&E (Loehle, 2007) is here corrected for various errors and data issues, with little change in the results. Standard errors and 95% confidence intervals are added. The Medieval Warming Period (MWP) was significantly warmer than the bimillennial average during most of the period 820 – 1040 AD. The Little Ice Age was significantly… Read More »

Observed climate change in Tennessee

By | February 2, 2008

There is no observational evidence of unusual long-term climate changes in Tennessee. No emissions reductions by Tennessee will have any detectable regional or global effect whatsoever on climate change.

Will Media Expose Global Warming Con Job?

By | January 31, 2008

In March 2007 the UK’s Channel 4 broadcast a biting documentary, The Great Global Warming Swindle. It debunked most of the major arguments of Al Gore’s Oscar-winning video, An Inconvenient Truth.

Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

By | January 24, 2008

A review of the research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth’s weather and climate. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth. Predictions of harmful climatic effects due to future increases… Read More »

Antarctic Ice Loss: Is There Really a Problem?

By | January 23, 2008

Michael Kaufman, a Post staff writer, describes new research results by Eric Rignot and colleagues that “Climatic changes appear to be destabilizing vast ice sheets of western Antarctica that had previously seemed relatively protected from global warming…raising the prospect of faster sea-level rise than current estimates.”

Unresolved issues with assessment of global surface temperature trends

By | December 28, 2007

This paper documents various unresolved issues in using surface temperature trends as a metric for assessing global and regional climate change. A series of examples ranging from errors caused by temperature measurements at a monitoring station to the undocumented biases in the regionally and globally averaged time series are provided….
