The value of tau 667

Admin: Posted up for Steve, with an initial response by Miklos. The slides Steve referred to are here. My bad for not telling Miklos that. Link to TF&K08 Miskolczi theory proposes a tau (Ta if you will) significantly different from that found by at least a dozen other studies published in the peer-reviewed literature over […]

GBR recovery 5

A feel-good story of nature’s resiliency, “Doom and Boom on a Resilient Reef: Climate Change, Algal Overgrowth and Coral Recovery” has been making press with headlines focusing on the state of mind of the authors: Marine scientists say they are astonished at the spectacular recovery of certain coral reefs in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine […]

Errors of Global Warming Effects Modeling 32

Since 2006, in between promoting numeracy in education, and examples of simple statistics using topical issues from the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) to illustrate points, I asked the question “Have these models been validated?”, in blog posts and occasionally submissions to journals. This post summarizes these efforts. Species Extinctions Predictions of massive species […]

Newcastle Lecture Wednesday 15th April 68

Miklós Zágoni and I will be speaking in a public lecture at 1pm on Wednesday the 15th of April at the Engineering faculty, Newcastle University, in lecture theater ES203. Miklós will speak on the theory of Ferenc Miskolczi and I will give a short introduction of the work from the blog in the last 3 […]

Jan Pompe Science Project 37

Some time ago I had a brief discussion with Leif Svalgaard on ClimateAudit blog inspired by an exchange between Leif and David Archibald when the latter complained that Leif’s TSI reconstruction was “too flat”. The sunspots exhibited cyclic variability in terms of the frequency of the cycles and that most thermostats work by pulse width […]

Oceanic Cyanobacteria in the Modern Global CO2 Cycle 34

There appears to be a very interesting fine structure to great Southern Ocean (SO) atmospheric CO2 levels if one calculates residuals relative to the ‘official’ NOAA global average. This also applies to individual Northern Hemisphere (NH) and Southern Hemisphere (SH) monitoring stations such as Mauna Loa (MLO) and Easter Island (EIC) respectively, sited in the […]

Causes of Global Warming 22

Here is a graph that suggests something intriguing about climate dynamics — global temperature from 1979-2009 from UAH satellite records for land, southern hemisphere ocean, and globe, each fit with a 3rd order polynomial. Also plotted is the difference between SH Ocean and Global temperatures, and the difference between SH Ocean and Land temperatures. Notice […]
