No signs of a climate emergency for W. Hudson Bay polar bears this year ahead of UN climate meeting

Reposted from Dr. Susan Crockford’s Polar Bear Science By Susan Crockford I’ve been told that another complete aerial survey of the Western Hudson Bay polar bear subpopulation (from the Nunavut to Ontario boundaries) was conducted in August this year and that the bears have been hanging out further south than usual. It will be [...]

New Yorker Magazine Has a Moral Obligation to Open the Climate Debate Before COP26, says Friends of Science Society

In response to a recent podcast by David Remnick with Swedish climate activist Andreas Malm, who advocates sabotage for critical infrastructure that underpins modern society, The New Yorker has a moral obligation to open up the climate debate and demonstrate that fears of a hellscape world are exaggerated, says Friends of Science Society. [...]

Still waiting for two thirds of polar bears worldwide to disappear due to lack of summer sea ice

Post by Susan Crockford. Original post here. It’s hard to believe that a polar bear specialist would claim that their predictions have come true, given the facts of the matter: that polar bears arguably number over 30,000 worldwide and regions with the most dramatic sea ice declines have not documented reduced polar bear health [...]

The IPCC’s attribution methodology is fundamentally flawed

by Ross McKitrick – repost from Climate Etc. One day after the IPCC released the AR6 I published a paper in Climate Dynamics showing that their “Optimal Fingerprinting” methodology on which they have long relied for attributing climate change to greenhouse gases is seriously flawed and its results are unreliable and largely meaningless. Some of the errors would [...]

New Confirmation that Climate Models Overstate Atmospheric Warming

by Ross McKitrick - repost from Climate Etc. Two new peer-reviewed papers from independent teams confirm that climate models overstate atmospheric warming and the problem has gotten worse over time, not better. The papers are Mitchell et al. (2020) “The vertical profile of recent tropical temperature trends: Persistent model biases in the context of internal [...]

PAGES19 Asian Tree Ring Chronologies

By Steve McIntyre - repost of Climate Audit  About 20% of the PAGES 2019 proxies are 50 Asian tree ring chronologies, all of which were originally published as chronologies in PAGES (2013). At the time, none of these series (and certainly not in these digital versions, had ever been published in technical literature, [...]

The IPCC AR6 Hockeystick

By Steve McIntyre Original post here Although climate scientists keep telling that defects in their “hockey stick” proxy reconstructions don’t matter – that it doesn’t matter whether they use data upside down, that it doesn’t matter if they cherry pick individual series depending on whether they go up in the 20th century, that it [...]

Extreme weather & Climate Change: Media Hype OR Reality?

By Madhav Khandekar* Toronto, Canada The recent extreme heat episode (June 29- July 5, 2021) over the NW region of Canada-USA led to highest recorded temperature of 49.7C in Lytton (British Columbia) in Canada. This unusual weather event was caused by a development of a ‘heat dome’ resulting from a persistent high-pressure [...]

Fact check : What the floods really have to do with “climate”

By Sebastian Lüning In medieval times, the priest would have declared that it would have been a punishment from God for the wicked behavior of sinners. Today's explanation is unfortunately not far from that. In mid-July 2021, prolonged heavy rain caused severe flooding in western Germany. There were many dead and missing, [...]

Presentation Ross McKitrick: is a worst case scenario really bad?

Ross McKitrick, the Canadian economics professor who publishes regularly in climate journals, gave an online talk for the Irish Climate Science Forum and the international CLINTEL Foundation (of which I am the cofounder). I have some sort of special bond with both McKitrick and McIntyre, because back in 2004, when I was an [...]
