  • Clouds and El Nino Wed, 9 May 18, 5:47pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach After the turn of the century, I became interested in climate science. But unlike almost everyone else, I wasn’t surprised by how much the global temperature was changing. As someone...
  • Where The Warmth Is Sun, 25 Mar 18, 7:23am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I got to thinking about the “hiatus” in warming in the 21st Century, and I realized that the CERES satellite dataset covers the period since the year 2000...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Once on a lovely hot August day in eastern Oregon, my gorgeous ex-fiancee and I sat entranced and watched a parade of dust devils...
  • Glimpsed Through The Clouds Tue, 13 Feb 18, 2:27pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In a recent post, I discussed the new CERES Edition 4.0 dataset. See that post for a discussion of the CERES satellite-based radiation data, along with links to the data itself. In that post...
  • 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...
