The GREEN MARKET ORACLE: Its Official Arctic Sea Ice is at its Lowest Level in Recorded History

National Snow and Ice Data Center, said that Arctic sea ice is at its lowest level ever recorded. What happens to the Arctic sea ice is of great relevance to everyone everywhere on the planet. Sea ice is a key indicator of climate change, as part of complex feedback loops, ice loss is expected to exacerbate our warming climate. Sea ice appears to have hit its lowest point on Sept. 16, when it covered 1.32 million square miles (3.42 million square km) of the Arctic Ocean, the smallest amount since satellite records began 33 years ago.

Issue 75, Feb 24, 2008 We have presented James Hansen's Basic Fossil Fuel Facts as a new web page under sustainability that summarises the impact of fossil fuels and the urgent actions required in the opinion of Prof. YouTube. STEPHEN MOORE: Climate change not 'settled science' Thoughts and Analysis, mostly on Climate Antidiscombobulationism.

Global warming 'pause' explained › Dr Karl's Great Moments In Science (ABC Science) 99.999% certainty humans are driving global warming: new study. There is less than 1 chance in 100,000 that global average temperature over the past 60 years would have been as high without human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, our new research shows.

99.999% certainty humans are driving global warming: new study

Published in the journal Climate Risk Management today, our research is the first to quantify the probability of historical changes in global temperatures and examines the links to greenhouse gas emissions using rigorous statistical techniques. Our new CSIRO work provides an objective assessment linking global temperature increases to human activity, which points to a close to certain probability exceeding 99.999%. Our work extends existing approaches undertaken internationally to detect climate change and attribute it to human or natural causes. The 2013 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report provided an expert consensus that: Decades of extraordinary temperatures. Fact check: has global warming paused? “The UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri, has acknowledged a 17-year pause in global temperature rises, confirmed recently by Britain’s Met Office, but said it would need to last ‘30 to 40 years at least’ to break the long-term global warming trend.” - The Australian, Feb 22 2013 Since the onset of the industrial age (from 1750 AD) Earth’s atmosphere, surface and ocean temperatures have warmed.

Fact check: has global warming paused?

This is mainly due to the rise in greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O, O3, halocarbons, stratospheric water vapour from CH4) by a total of +3.06 Watt/m2. Setting the record straight on misleading claims against Michael Mann. Attempts to discredit Prof.

Setting the record straight on misleading claims against Michael Mann

Mann and confuse the facts about his defamation lawsuits keep popping up and circulating in the blogosphere. Here we comment on issues pertaining to the conclusions of the Muir Russell investigation, Mark Steyn's response and counterclaims, and the status of the case in Canada against Tim Ball. The first allegation is that Dr. Mann made false statements in a brief submitted to the District of Columbia Superior Court regarding Sir Muir Russell’s review of the UK Climatic Research Unit (CRU) emails (i.e., as part of the so-called Climategate investigation). How reliable are climate models? Climate models are mathematical representations of the interactions between the atmosphere, oceans, land surface, ice – and the sun.

How reliable are climate models?

This is clearly a very complex task, so models are built to estimate trends rather than events. For example, a climate model can tell you it will be cold in winter, but it can’t tell you what the temperature will be on a specific day – that’s weather forecasting. Climate trends are weather, averaged out over time - usually 30 years. Trends are important because they eliminate - or "smooth out" - single events that may be extreme, but quite rare.
