Tamino's Open Mind: Hammering the Trend

I tend to hammer away at the concept of trend. Like many, I’m especially interested in whether, and if so when, trends have changed. Recent research from Oliva et al. is all about trend change in temperature on the Antarctic …

Fascinating FaceBook post from France. Dear Mr Trump, thank you for your concern. A man has indeed attacked a soldier with two machetes this morning in Paris. It wasn’t in the Louvre Museum, it was in the Carrousel du Louvre, …

Several readers mentioned that the plot of sea ice anomaly in the Arctic shown in the last post has much greater fluctuation after about 2007. Anomaly values are the difference between a given time’s extent, and the average for that …

Tamino's Open Mind: Climate Change in the News

Tamino's Open Mind: Climate Denial about Sea Ice

When it comes to Arctic sea ice, climate deniers have a hard time explaining why it has declined so far so fast. It’s one of the most telling signs of global warming, a stark message from Earth to deniers: it’s …

Tamino's Open Mind: Sea Level Acceleration

A regular big lie from climate deniers, in fact a huge lie from climate deniers, is when they deny that there’s been acceleration of sea level rise. Sea level acceleration is a fact. Let’s start with what happened during the …

Tamino's Open Mind: Big Lies about Climate Change

Tamino's Open Mind: Global Temperature: the Big 3

Tamino's Open Mind: Tony Heller’s Snow Job

How would we expect global warming to affect the world’s amount of snow cover? The naive way — the simpleton’s way — would be to say that higher temperature must mean less snow, all the time, everywhere. Senator James Inhofe …

Tamino's Open Mind: A Winter’s Day
