Is sea level rise accelerating?

by Judith Curry Estimates of the rate of sea level rise are diverging.

Hansen’s backfire

by Judith Curry Jim Hansen’s new paper, and his PR strategy, are raising a whole host of issues that are arguably a backfire for his objectives.

Role of Atlantic warming(?) in recent climate shifts

by Judith Curry Record breaking trade winds may have led to hiatus in global surface average temperatures.

Slowing sea level rise

by Judith Curry Since the early 1990s, sea level rose at a mean rate of ~3.1 mm yr−1. However, over the last decade a slowdown of this rate, of about 30%, has been recorded. – Cazenave et al.

End of climate exceptionalism

by Judith Curry A new report from the IPCC implies that “climate exceptionalism”, the notion that global warming is a problem like no other, is coming to an end. – Economist

IPCC AR5 weakens the case for AGW

by Judith Curry Evidence reported by the IPCC AR5 weakens the case for anthropogenic factors dominating climate change in the 20th and early 21st centuries.

Cause of hiatus found deep in the Atlantic Ocean

by Judith Curry Rapid warming in the last three decades of the 20th century, they found, was roughly half due to global warming and half to the natural Atlantic Ocean cycle that kept more heat near the surface. When observations … Continue reading

PDO, ENSO and sea level rise

by Judith Curry Three new papers to discuss on the topic of natural internal variability and sea level rise.

Chasing Ice!

by Judith Curry Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

20th century mean global sea level rise

by Judith Curry On the acceleration of sea level rise, the Gilligan effect, and the garbage solution.

Historic Variations in Arctic sea ice. Part II: 1920-1950

by Tony Brown Satellite observations that provide an hour by hour picture of every part of the Arctic make it easy to forget that large areas of it had not even been even explored 80 years ago – let alone … Continue reading

Sea level rise discussion thread

Week in review 07/22/11

by Judith Curry Here are a few things that caught my eye this past week:

Threatened Island Nations

by Judith Curry The Center for Climate Change Law at the Columbia Law School and the Republic of the Marshall Islands recently co-sponsored a conference on “Threatened Island Nations: Legal Implications of a Changing Climate.”

NIPCC discussion thread

by Judith Curry The Interim Report of the Nongovermental Panel on Climate Change has been released:  Climate Change Reconsidered.

Earth’s Energy Imbalance

by Judith Curry Jim Hansen has just posted his latest draft paper, entitled “Earth’s Energy Imbalance and Implications.”    This is quite a meaty paper, and will be of particular interest to those of you wondering “where’s the missing heat?”

Making the lukewarmer case

by Judith Curry Many skeptics have attempted to lay out their arguments in a broad sense for the broader public, presumably hoping to convince the uninformed or the weakly convinced.  There are books, booklets, ppt presentations, youtube videos.  While these … Continue reading
