THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds the highest storm activity is associated with cold periods
A new paper published in Nature Geoscience examines climate change over the past 11,500 years and finds, contrary to the claims of climate alarmists, that the highest storm activity is associated with cold periods. According to the authors, "We find that high storm activity occurred periodically with a frequency of about 1,500 years, closely related to cold and windy periods." The paper adds to several others showing that global warming decreases storm activity and extreme weather.BBC conflict of interest: Pensions relying on pushing alarmist climate agenda « Tallbloke's Talkshop
It looks like a clear conflict of interest between the BBC and the public that they are supposed to serve.THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Paper finds solar activity at end of 20th century was highest in 9,400 years
A recent paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences examines ice core and tree ring radionuclides and finds solar activity at the end of the 20th century was at the highest levels of the record spanning the past 9,400 years. The paper adds to several others demonstrating that an increase in solar activity and concomitant decrease in cloudiness during the latter 20th century are more than sufficient to explain observed global warming.THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds clouds cool the climate
A new paper published in Environmental Research Letters examines satellite data over Eurasia to find that total cloud cover acts as a net negative feedback to cool the climate. The finding contradicts the assumptions programmed into climate models that clouds act as a net positive feedback to cause warming.
