Testings an Astronomically Based Decadal-Scale Empirical Harmonic Climate Model vs. the IPCC (2007) General Circulation Climate Models

By | January 6, 2012

We compare the performance of a recently proposed empirical climate model based on astronomical harmonics against all CMIP3 available general circulation climate models (GCM) used by the IPCC (2007) to interpret the 20th century global surface temperature. The proposed astronomical empirical climate model assumes that the climate is resonating with, or synchronized to a set of natural harmonics… Read More »

Historic Trends in Arctic Glacier Behavior

By | January 3, 2012

Computer simulations of global climate change have long indicated the world’s polar regions should show the first and severest signs of CO2-induced global warming. If the models are correct, these signs should be especially evident since the second half of the 20th century, when approximately two-thirds of the modern-era rise in atmospheric CO2 occurred and Earth’s temperature supposedly… Read More »

Estimates of Global Food Production in the Year 2050

By | January 3, 2012

Global food security is one of the most pressing societal issues of our time. Based on food production databases assembled and maintained by the United Nations, I have identified the specific crops that supply 95% of the food needs of the world, six large regions into which the world may be divided, twenty sub-regions, and twenty-five individual countries… Read More »
