Bob Carter Warms with Eiffel Tower Descent

THE Eiffel Tower was opened in 1889, and with an observation deck at about 300 m above ground level was then the highest human-construction on planet Earth. Professor Bob Carter, former Head of the Department of Earth Sciences at James Cook University, now in Paris in advance of the COP-21 global warming talks, recently emailed […]

Sceptics and Alarmists, Together, Present to Coalition Environment Committee

ON Tuesday there was a Parliamentary Information Session in Canberra sponsored by the Global Change Institute and the University of Queensland at which many government-funded climate scientists told members and senators that the end is nigh. That is unless Australia signs on to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals at the upcoming COP21 in Paris. […]

You Don’t Know the Half of It: Temperature Adjustments and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology

For the true believer, it is too awful to even consider that the Australian Bureau of Meteorology could be exaggerating global warming by adjusting figures. This doesn’t mean though, that it’s not true. In fact, under Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a panel of eminent statisticians was formed to investigate these claims detailed in The Australian […]

Snowy Hydro responsible for cooling at Rutherglen?

I’VE just had a paper published in the international climate science journal Atmospheric Research (volume 166, pages 141-149), in which I show there was significant cooling in the maximum temperatures at the Cape Otway and Wilsons Promontory lighthouses, south eastern Australia, from 1921 to 1950.  This cooling is even more pronounced in temperature records from the […]

Bureau Just Makes Stuff Up: Deniliquin Remodelled so Rutherglen can be Homogenized

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology just makes stuff up.    You may remember Rutherglen, that town in north eastern Victoria, Australia, where the Bureau changed a slight cooling trend in the minimum temperatures to catastrophic global warming?  After they were caught-out, they claimed the “adjustments” were necessary because there had been a site move.  That’s right, moving a weather station […]

Remembering, the Day After Tomorrow

So, it may be difficult to remember a time in the future!  But do you remember the movie ‘The Day after Tomorrow’ when New York froze over?  That ice age was caused by changes in the circulation of warm water in the Atlantic Ocean, in particular the Gulf Stream closed down because of melting in the […]

The Minority is Always Right

THANK YOU to everyone who heard Maria Pita and sent a letter off to their favorite politician or editor, or made comment in the long thread online at The Australian, highlighting the many inadequacies in the recent report by the Technical Advisory Forum into the homogenization of historical temperature data by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

Remember Rutherglen, & “Whoever has Honor Follow Me!”

The results of an independent ­review of the Bureau of Mete­or­ology’s national temperature records should “ring alarm bells” for those who had believed the bureau’s methods were transparent, says a key critic, Jennifer ­Marohasy.  So, begins an article by Graham Lloyd in The Weekend Australian. Lloyd goes on to write: Dr Marohasy said the review […]

Response to ‘Yes Minister’ report by Ron Sandland

FOLLOWING  are my initial comments in response to the release of the report by the Technical Advisory Forum on the Australian Climate Observations Reference Network (ACORN-SAT): I NOTE that The Forum, chaired by Dr Ron Sandland formerly of the CSIRO, concurs with the Bureau that: “There is a need to adjust the historical temperature record to account […]
