Cyclones of the Tropical South Pacific (22 Feb 2011)

The lack of linear trends in four cyclone parameters analyzed “implies that there is as yet no evidence for climate-change forcing of these storm characteristics over recent historical times” ... Read More

Climate Change and Infectious Diseases: Unfinished Business (22 Feb 2011)

The health catastrophes that are routinely predicted to occur by the world’s climate alarmists in response to future global warming are not yet ready for prime-time consideration ... Read More

Old Trees Doing it Better than Young Trees: Responding to CO2 (22 Feb 2011)

How important is the task? ... and how well are models performing it? ... Read More

Effects of Seawater Acidification on Phytoplankton Growth Rates (22 Feb 2011)

Results indicated that marine phytoplankton “are resistant to climate change in terms of ocean acidification, and do not increase or decrease their growth rates according to ecological relevant ranges of pH and free CO2" ... Read More

Summer and Winter Deaths in Brisbane, Australia (22 Feb 2011)

Extremes of cold lead to the deaths of many more people than extremes of heat in both cold and warm climates ... Read More

The Geckos of Pemba Island, Tanzania (22 Feb 2011)

To what degree are they threatened by a projected warming of IPCC-predicted magnitude? ... Read More

Soil Moisture Trends: IPCC Simulations vs. Real-World Observations (23 Feb 2011)

Climate models employed in the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment are clearly deficient in their ability to correctly simulate soil moisture trends, even when applied to the past and when driven by observed climate forcings ... Read More

Millennial-Scale Cycling of Climate in China’s Salawusu River Valley (23 Feb 2011)

Ever more evidence continues to point to a natural millennial-scale cycling of earth’s climate between relatively cooler and warmer conditions throughout the Holocene, suggesting that the recent recovery of the world from the global chill of the Little Ice Age was only to be expected, and that it need not have been driven by anthropogenic CO2 emissions, as it’s time had merely come ... Read More

Arctic vs. Global Air Temperature Change (23 Feb 2011)

A model that performs well in one time period will not necessarily perform well in another time period ... Read More

The Future of Mediterranean Forests (23 Feb 2011)

Previous reports of species decline in continental Spain “may be overestimated due to two reasons: the use of only one predictive niche-based model, and the failure to account for possible effects of CO2 fertilization” ... Read More
