  • Reposted from edmhdotme What if there is no Catastrophic Risk from Man-made Global Warming ? What if Man-made CO2 emissions are not the “Climate Control Knob” ? What if Man-made CO2 emissions really are a non-problem...
  • Conventional models assume increasing atmospheric CO2 warms the surface, then apply the feedbacks to the surface warming. But if feedbacks start up in the atmosphere instead, everything changes. This is a post with big potential....
  • The Earth’s atmosphere is a leaky bucket, with four big holes (and a lot of little ones).
  • by Judith Curry Three new papers highlight how atmospheric radiative transfer, particularly how it is treated in climate models, is not ‘settled science.’ The greatest uncertainties in simulating climate change...
  • by Steven E. Koonin My Wall Street Journal article of 9/20/14, Climate Science is Not Settled , contains the paragraph Even though human influences could have serious consequences for the climate, they are physically small...

    by Judith Curry Ferenc Miskolczi has published a new paper on the greenhouse effect that is generating substantial discussion. The Greenhouse Effect and the Infrared Radiative Structure of the Earth’s Atmosphere Ferenc...
  • In order to optimize construction details while minimizing costs, Alventosa Morell Arquitectes opted to use wood as the sole building material. This forced them to work with a specific industry, which reduced possibilities...

    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach There’s a recent paper paywalled here, called Arctic winter warming amplified by the thermal inversion and consequent low infrared cooling to space. Fortunately, the Supplementary Online...
  • CO2 ‘control knob’ fallacy (?) Fri, 20 Sep 13, 11:29pm
    by Judith Curry Previous IPCC reports — and much of the debate over how to react to them — have appeared to treat the Earth’s climate as if it were a domestic central heating system, with carbon emissions analogous...
  • CFC climate bomb (?) Mon, 24 Jun 13, 4:09am
    by Judith Curry Talk about perverse incentives! It appears that Chinese coolant manufacturers have been producing an excess of a harmful greenhouse chemical in order to dispose of it responsibly under the UN’s Clean Development...
  • As readers may know, Dr. Roy Spencer and I have had a long running disagreement with the group known as “Principia Scientific International” aka the Sky Dragon Slayers after the title of their book. While I think...
  • People send me stuff. This makes Bill Nye’s recent CNN fail look almost forgivable. My friend Lars Larson, who runs a nationally syndicated radio show out of Portland, OR sent me this audio clip today. I had to listen...
  • Dr. Roy Spencer has made a challenge to the Slayers/Principia folks who keep insisting the greenhouse effect doesn’t exist at all. For example, see the front page claim at right from the Principia web page where they...
  • The R. W. Wood Experiment Thu, 7 Feb 13, 7:30am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Pushed by a commenter on another thread, I thought I’d discuss the R. W. Wood experiment, done in 1909. Many people hold that this experiment shows that CO2 absorption and/or back-radiation...
