By Joe Romm on May 9, 2010 at 10:32 am "Caldeira slams anti-scientific witchhunts: “Are American politicians following in the footsteps of Stalin?”" U-VA faculty Senate: Cuccinelli actions threaten “our ability to generate the knowledge upon which informed public policy relies.” Climate scientist Ken Caldeira commented on my recent post, “WashPost: University of Virginia should fight AG Cuccinelli’s faulty investigation of Michael Mann.” Since it’s well worth reading, I am reprinting it below — along with the powerful conclusion of the University of Virginia Faculty Senate Executive Council statement. I gave Caldeira a chance to edit his statement, since commenting does not always perfectly express one’s thoughts: Caldeira slams anti-scientific witchhunts: “Are American politic

As Arctic sea ice shrinks faster than 2007, NSIDC director Serre By Joe Romm on May 24, 2010 at 7:57 pm "As Arctic sea ice shrinks faster than 2007, NSIDC director Serreze says, “I think it’s quite possible we could “break another record this year.”" Watts and Goddard seem in denial: “We are still about six weeks away from anything interesting happening in the Arctic.” The big climate news up north is the Arctic double stunner: Sea ice extent (area) is now below 2007 levels, while the even more important metric of ice volume hit a record low for March (according to the Polar Science Center). Data from both the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) show Arctic sea ice extent shrinking below the level of 2007 at a rapid pace: Canada’s Globe and Mail headlines their story, “Arctic sea ice heading for new record low,”
Daily sea ice growth rates were variable during December. By the end of the month, ice extent remained below average in most of the far north.

Latest GRACE data on Greenland ice mass Posted on 28 May 2010 by John Cook I don't plan to fall into the trap of breathlessly reporting every twist and turn of short-term climate fluctuations (I went through a bit of a silly period in March and April 2008 ). But we've been discussing Greenland trends and as it's been over a year since posting GRACE data on Greenland ice mass so I figure we're due an update.
