UN IPCC Calls In Moral Philosopher As People Cool On Global Warming: Critics mock: ‘They should be addressing basic questions of economic common sense, such as what’s the best way of spending money on climate change, not philosophical questions’

IPCC Calls In Moral Philosopher As People Cool On Global Warming http://www.thegwpf.org/ipcc-calls-moral-philosopher-people-cool-global-warming/ Scientists have had only limited success persuading us to care about climate change so perhaps it is time to call in the philosophers. That appears to be the approach of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which has engaged a philosopher to help to […]

Review paper finds Medieval Warming Period was global and warmer than the present

Review paper finds Medieval Warming Period was global and warmer than the present http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2013/09/review-paper-finds-medieval-warming.html A new review paper from SPPI and CO2 Science reviews the published literature on the Medieval Warming Period in South America and finds “(1) the Medieval Warm Period was a global phenomenon that was comprised of even warmer intervals than the warmest portion […]

Settled science update: Oceanographers find enormous deep-sea waves that ‘play a crucial role in long-term climate cycles’

Settled science update: Oceanographers find enormous deep-sea waves that ‘play a crucial role in long-term climate cycles’ http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2013/09/settled-science-update-oceanographers.html Settled science update: Oceanographers have recorded for the first time, in “a key bottleneck” of the Pacific Ocean, enormous 800-foot-tall deep-sea waves that “play a crucial role in long-term climate cycles.” “Climate models are really sensitive not only […]

New paper finds IPCC climate models don’t realistically simulate convection: Published in Geophysical Research Letters finds climate models do not realistically simulate convection, ‘a key element of the weather and climate system for transporting mass, momentum, and thermal energy’

New paper finds IPCC climate models don’t realistically simulate convection http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2013/09/new-paper-finds-ipcc-climate-models.html More problems for the models: A paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters finds climate models do not realistically simulate convection, “a key element of the weather and climate system for transporting mass, momentum, and thermal energy,” because of a large gap in the […]

New paper finds grasslands are a net source of CO2 to the atmosphere – – Published in Biogeosciences ‘unexpectedly finds farmed grasslands are a net annual source of CO2 to the atmosphere, and also a weak methane sink to the atmosphere’

New paper finds grasslands are a net source of CO2 to the atmosphere http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2013/09/new-paper-finds-grasslands-are-net.html A paper published today in Biogeosciences unexpectedly finds farmed grasslands are a net annual source of CO2 to the atmosphere, and also a weak methane sink to the atmosphere. The authors studied 3 Swiss grasslands managed at different levels of intensity, […]
