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?

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. […]
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 […]

According to the preamble to the survey, prominent sceptics like myself “are doubtful that climate […]

Imagine, for instance, if some bureau of sport were to revise the Don’s batting average in test cricket down from 99.94 to 75 after adjusting for anomalies and […]
Accepting the reality of change gives rise to equanimity – Allan Lokos.
When measurements don’t matter… a YouTube by Calem Smith explaining how the Bureau of Meteorology grossly misrepresented the strength of Tropical Cyclone Marcia.
IT is valid for the Australian Bureau of Meteorology to estimate the intensity of a cyclone using computer models when it is far out to sea. But once that same cyclone passes over a weather recording station the modelling data must be updated with real world observational data. In the case of Marcia even after this […]
