Is Climate Science a Monster?

Skeptics are doing what scientists are supposed to do, that is disproving the AGW hypothesis, reminded Tim Ball in a recent WUWT comment [19. September.], when some IPCC members required to launch criminal charges against “climate deniers”. Of course such talking is ridiculous and irresponsible. But can Tim Ball require more serious behavior? Are skeptics Continue Reading

Climate variability linked to solar variations – Correct??

“Although the solar effect on the North Atlantic Oscillation explains only a few percent of the total variance, the close relationship between solar activity and phase North Atlantic Oscillation is an important indicator to improve the predictability of climate variability” say GEOMAR (press-release 15. Sept. 2015) “Rising global temperatures since the industrial revolution cannot be Continue Reading

COP21 – US $ per year for waste?

Admin/04/11.04.2015 Forward! Forward! Let’s proceed to the largest and probably most senseless investment ever. Big money for climate science in sight! Paris will soon host a meeting (COP21) based on the Framework Convention on Climate Change, 1992 (UNFCCC), to replace the Kyoto Protocol (1997) that commit States to reduce greenhouse gas emission, to establish a Continue Reading

Not the Sun – The Ocean is the Driver.

Posted: 10 August 2015 The time may end soon eventually that the sun is responsible for significant climatic changes, as new research indicates: “Rising global temperatures since the industrial revolution cannot be attributed to increased solar activity”, reports (August 7, 2015); by concluding  “The apparent upward trend of solar activity between the 18th century Continue Reading

California Drought and El Niño

Anthony Watts’ recent post (30. July 2015) cites a study by Andrey Savtchenko et al. (NASA) indicating “that El Niño contributes only six percent to California’s precipitation variability and is one factor among other, more random effects that influence how much rainfall the state receives. While it’s more likely El Niño increases precipitation in California, Continue Reading

Dr. Tim Ball on: „Generalization, Specialization and Climatology”. Does it mean he explains what climate is?

Actually Tim Ball does not say what climate is, he only refers to climatology and climate science. Is that sufficient to understand, respectively enshrines a definition for the term “climate”. In a recent post at WUWT (29:June2015) that is what he said: Climatology is the study of weather patterns of a place or region, or Continue Reading
