Record 2018 snowfall continues increasing snowfall trends showing UN IPCC AR5 report is flawed

By Larry Hamlin The record snowfalls of 2018 that are sweeping across the Northern Hemisphere and continuing the growth trend in winter snowfall levels provide yet more compelling evidence that the UN IPCC AR5 WG1 climate report and models are flawed because this report concludes that future snowfall level trends will only decline. NOAA Northern

Sampling bias in climate–conflict research

  By Courtland Adams, Tobias Ide, Jon Barnett & Adrien Detges   Abstract Critics have argued that the evidence of an association between climate change and conflict is flawed because the research relies on a dependent variable sampling strategy1,2,3,4. Similarly, it has been hypothesized that convenience of access biases the sample of cases studied (the

A Global Analysis of Recent Trends in Streamflow

Paper Reviewed Do, H.X., Westra, S. and Leonard, M. 2017. A global-scale investigation of trends in annual maximum streamflow. Journal of Hydrology 552: 28-43. Flooding is one of the most common of all weather-related disasters, affecting more than two billion people across the planet in recent decades (CRED, 2015). According to climate alarmists, the frequency

U.S. Corn Yield a New Record – Again

The numbers are in from USDA, and 2017 saw a new record in average corn yield, with 176.6 bushels per acre. In fact, the last four growing seasons (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017) had higher yields than any previous years. The last time that happened was in 1964. And compared to 1964, the U.S. is producing

Efficient CO2 Removal for Ultra-Pure CO Production by Two Hybrid Ultramicroporous Materials

By Michael Zaworotko et al. Abstract Removal of CO2 from CO gas mixtures is a necessary but challenging step during production of ultra-pure CO as processed from either steam reforming of hydrocarbons or CO2 reduction. In this contribution, two hybrid ultramicroporous materials (HUMs), SIFSIX-3-Ni and TIFSIX-2-Cu-i, which are known to exhibit strong affinity for CO2,

The search for life on other planets could get a boost from biosignatures

 By Amina Khan By studying the atmospheric contents of ancient and present-day Earth, scientists say they’ve discovered specific chemical combinations that could reveal the presence of biological activity on other planets. These biosignatures, described in the journal Science Advances, could offer a key tool in the search for extraterrestrial life. “There’s a direct path from the conclusions
