  • A Request For Peer Preview Thu, 29 Apr 21, 3:00am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Well, for my sins I’ve been working on a paper with the hope of getting it published in a journal. Now that it’s nearly done,…
  • Clouds From Both Sides Now Tue, 16 Mar 21, 12:00am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Clouds are said to be the largest uncertainty in climate models, and I can believe that. Their representation in the models is highly parameterized, each…
  • Boy Child, Girl Child Mon, 9 Nov 20, 9:00am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve said before that I consider myself a climate heretic rather than a climate skeptic. A skeptic doubts parts of things. A heretic questions the basic assumptions underlying the whole...
  • The Picasso Problem Sun, 18 Nov 18, 6:50pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Let me start explaining the link from Picasso to climate science by looking at what Dr. Nir Shaviv called “the most boring graph I have ever plotted in my life”. This is the graph...
  • 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)...

  • 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...
