Technical Details of Coral Cover Statistics, and Background

By Peter Ridd – August 4, 2022 Since 1986, the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) surveys roughly 100 of the 3000 coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). Ridd used this data to construct the coral cover since 1986 (Figure 1) which shows that the GBR has record high coral cover. Figure 1:… Continue Reading

The Two-Degree Limit

Author: Andy May | Published: Andy May Petrophysicist | Date: 19 July 2022   For decades We have been told that we must not let global warming exceed two degrees Celsius above the “pre-industrial” global average temperature. Recently the IPCC lowered this limit to 1.5°C. In the latest IPCC report, called AR6, pre-industrial is defined as before 1750,… Continue Reading

CO2 Sample Spacing in Ice Cores

Renee Hannon – 24 June 2022 Introduction This post examines sample spacing for CO2 measurements in Antarctic ice cores during the past 800,000 years to better understand if gaps in sampling are too large to capture centennial fluctuations. The IPCC states: “Although ice core records present low-pass filtered time series due to gas diffusion and gradual… Continue Reading

Net-zero Reality Check #3 – PV Solar

(This is the third of five articles, using published data and simple logic, to demonstrate that net-zero carbon is unattainable by 2050 with wind, solar or nuclear, or a combination of these methods for power generation.) This analysis reflects ONLY United States energy demand and production by source. The critical issue addressed in these studies… Continue Reading

Why Human Contribution to Climate Change is Minimal and Negligible

Why Human Contribution to Climate Change is Minimal and Negligible by Rolf D. Reitz Emeritus Wisconsin Distinguished Professor University of Wisconsin-Madison Abstract More than 80% of mankind’s energy is supplied by fossil fuels.  However, several cities are considering banning fossil-fuels and the machines that use them, which are even being blamed for all manner of… Continue Reading

How many km2 of solar panels in Spain and how much battery backup would it take to power Germany

Written by: Dr. Lars Schernikau and Prof. William H. Smith 1. Abstract Germany is responsible for about 2% of global annual CO2 emis- sions from energy. To match Germany’s electricity demand (or over 15% of EU’s electricity demand) solely from solar photovoltaic pan- els located in Spain, about 7% of Spain would have to be… Continue Reading

Northern and Southern Hemisphere Warming

By Andy May – March 13, 2022 It is common for the news media and consensus scientists to report global average surface temperatures without mentioning that both the warming rate and average temperatures vary a lot around the Earth over one year. For example, Earth’s global average surface temperature varies about 7° F every year.… Continue Reading

Satellite and Surface Temperatures

By Andy May – March 13, 2022 In the Great Climate Change Debate between Professor David Karoly and Professor Will Happer, Glenn Tamblyn was called upon to finish the consensus side of the debate after Karoly backed out. The details are described in my latest book. The debate contained an illuminating exchange of opinions on… Continue Reading
