  • Into The Vortex Sat, 9 Sep 17, 9:23am
    I came across a lovely photograph of a “fire devil”, also called a “fire whirl”. I liked it because the photo perfectly exemplified what is wrong with the current generation of climate models. What...
  • How Thunderstorms Beat The Heat Sat, 9 Jan 16, 5:53am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I got to thinking again about the thunderstorms, and how much heat they remove from the surface by means of evaporation...
  • Tropical Evaporative Cooling Thu, 12 Nov 15, 6:20am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve been looking again into the satellite rainfall measurements from the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM)...
  • In The Land of El Nino Sun, 27 Sep 15, 7:09am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach While I was involved in an interesting interchange with David Douglass here, I stumbled across an interesting discovery...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Following up on a suggestion made to me by one of my long-time scientific heroes, Dr. Fred Singer, I’ve been looking at the rainfall dataset from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)...
  • TAO Buoys Go Hot And Cold Wed, 17 Jun 15, 10:17am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I got to thinking about how I could gain more understanding of the daily air temperature cycles in the tropics. I decided to look at what happens when the early morning (midnight to 5:00 AM)...
  • The Daily Albedo Cycle Tue, 9 Jun 15, 1:26pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I discussed the role of tropical albedo in regulating the temperature in two previous posts entitled Albedic Meanderings and An Inherently Stable System...
  • An Inherently Stable System Thu, 4 Jun 15, 6:05pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach At the end of my last post , I said that the climate seems to be an inherently stable system. The graphic below shows ~2,000 climate simulations run by climateprediction.net.  Unlike the other...
  • Albedic Meanderings Thu, 4 Jun 15, 2:44am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve been considering the nature of the relationship between the albedo and temperature. I have hypothesized elsewhere that variations in tropical cloud albedo are one of the main mechanisms...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I have put forth the idea for some time now that one of the main climate thermoregulatory mechanisms is a temperature-controlled sharp increase in albedo in the tropical regions...
  • With each passing day, Dr. Mann’s Q score becomes stranger and stranger. Mark Steyn (whom Dr. Mann is suing for libel) observes an emergent phenomenon – Mann’s accidental emergence into the public stage...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve mentioned before that a thunderstorm functions as a natural refrigeration system. I’d like to explain in a bit more detail what I mean by that. However, let me start by explaining...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Surfing When I was a kid, swimming in the ocean was a rarity. We kids spent summers with my Dad, and once, maybe twice over the summer we’d go to Stinson Beach. I loved the … Continue...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In my last post, “Emergent Climate Phenomena“, I gave a different paradigm for the climate. The current paradigm is that climate is a system in which temperature slavishly follows...
  • Emergent Climate Phenomena Fri, 8 Feb 13, 7:30am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In a recent post, I described how the El Nino/La Nina alteration operates as a giant pump. Whenever the Pacific Ocean gets too warm across its surface, the Nino/Nina pump kicks in and removes...
