Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Well, I decided to take a shot at publishing my views on the cloud feedback response to increases in surface warming. I wrote it up…
…models are pushing further and further into the domain of the ‘terra incognita.
Statistical uncertainty in the CERES and Cloud data seem to retard acceptance of alternative GW theories.
IPCC forecasters overstate warming because they still somehow really don’t understand clouds at all.
For years, the brightness symmetry between hemispheres remained a mystery.
By Jo Nova The science is settled except we only just realized that the benzene and toluene gas over the vast Southern Ocean were not man-made pollutants after all, but were made by industrious phytoplankton...
Whether clouds have a cooling or warming effect depends on how high they are. With a maximum altitude of two to three kilometers, the trade-wind clouds examined here are comparatively low, reflect sunlight, and cool the atmosphere...
The modelers of the 1990’s where on the right track – if clouds change the results would be as strong as the that expected from CO2. The IPCC should evaluate CRGW theory.
The diurnal temperature range has a significant effect on growing seasons, crop yields, residential energy consumption and human health issues related to heat stress.
We should keep looking, but so far there’s no evidence that clouds play a major role.
by Nic Lewis This week Die Zeit published an interview with Bjorn Stevens. Die Zeit is the largest German weekly newspaper (circulation well over one million), and has a highly educated readership. Bjorn Stevens is Director...
Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach For a while now, I’ve been using a curious kind of scatterplot. Here’s an example. It shows the relationship between the surface temperature and the…
After all, the ultimate goal of any model evaluation study is to help improve those models.”
Climate models are NOT capable of modeling clouds. Their resolution is too low and clouds are too complex.
How can climate models hope to reflect the real world when clouds are parameterised with no sensitivity to surface temperature?
