A Few Other Stations

Mr. Wakefield doesn’t seem to like the tide gauge data from Boston, since it so easily shows how wrong he was about “NO acceleration.” He wants me to “do a few other stations, like in Australia and Brest, France.” Let’s…

Sea Level Rise has Accelerated

There seems to be some interest in global sea level as estimated by tide gauges. In particular, we have recently been directed to a graph of the data from Church & White, which is the most reputable of the available…

Boston Sea Level

Sea Level Rise is Accelerating

Willis gets it right? Not. Willis Eschenbach has a post at WUWT claiming to show that sea level rise is not accelerating. What he actually demonstrates is that he doesn’t know how to tell. His method is to fit a…

Climate Trend Change? Do it Right

Because scientists, you’re doing it wrong. There’s a mistake you keep making, as many times as I point it out, even in the peer-reviewed literature, you keep doin’ it wrong. If you’re a scientist, then maybe yes this means you.…

Still Here

I thought I should let regular readers know that I’m still here, still alive, and that posts will be back before very long. It’s been crazy lately, and I’m involved in two new projects. One is private, the other is…

Hammering the Trend

I tend to hammer away at the concept of trend. Like many, I’m especially interested in whether, and if so when, trends have changed. Recent research from Oliva et al. is all about trend change in temperature on the Antarctic…

Sea LevelNiño

The Sea Level site of the University of Colorado has an interesting graph which shows quite plainly that there’s a relationship between global sea level and the el Niño southern oscillation: I decided to see how el Niño might be…

Trump Twit

Fascinating FaceBook post from France. Dear Mr Trump, thank you for your concern. A man has indeed attacked a soldier with two machetes this morning in Paris. It wasn’t in the Louvre Museum, it was in the Carrousel du Louvre,…

Sea Ice Seasonal Cycle

Several readers mentioned that the plot of sea ice anomaly in the Arctic shown in the last post has much greater fluctuation after about 2007. Anomaly values are the difference between a given time’s extent, and the average for that…

Climate Denial about Sea Ice

When it comes to Arctic sea ice, climate deniers have a hard time explaining why it has declined so far so fast. It’s one of the most telling signs of global warming, a stark message from Earth to deniers: it’s…

Sea Level Acceleration

A regular big lie from climate deniers, in fact a huge lie from climate deniers, is when they deny that there’s been acceleration of sea level rise. Sea level acceleration is a fact. Let’s start with what happened during the…

Fake Time

Over at the WUWT blog, Philip Lloyd objects to the fact that temperature data for Capetown, South Africa have been homogenized. He objects to being unable to find documentation for the homogenization, but when it comes to providing actual evidence…

Big Lies about Climate Change

One of the never-ending tactics of climate deniers is to tell the big lie. Another is to say something that is technically true in the most limited sense, but is so misleading, so irrelevant, that it’s tantamount to a lie.…

The Pause that Never Happened

Global Temperature: the Big 3

The title is a bit of a pun, since it refers to both the “big 3” global temperature data sets — NASA, NOAA, and HadCRUT4 — it also refers to the third year in a row global temperature has set…
