@Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Science Predicts an Eclipse. And More Global Warming. Believe Them.

New York Times: When medicine delivered a wave of vaccines in the 20th century, doctors predicted that wides­pread use would cause childhood deaths from illnesses like whooping cough and dipht­heria to fall. The public trusted the doctors, and those deaths plumm­eted. So what predic­tions has climate science made, and have they come true? The earliest,

@Climate Lab Book - Ed Hawkins: Linking global temper­ature and Arctic sea ice changes

As the annual September sea ice minimum in the Arctic approa­ches, the usual questions arise about whether this year will set a new record for the extent or volume of ice left at the end of the summer. Although there was a new winter record low in 2017 it is looking unlikely that the summer …

A Determi­nistic Forecast of Future Climate ChangesBy Renee HannonIn my previous WUWT post , I proposed a conce­ptual process model descr­ibing the influ­ences of astron­omical controls on interg­lacial warm periods and glacial cycles (Figure 1). The warm onsets with rapidly incre­asing temper­atures are triggered by an increase in the eccent­ricity of Earth’s orbit, an increase in obliquity and an…
