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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Noosa, Queensland, 9th March, 2015 Dear Mr Baldwin Re: Robust assessment of the trusted and respected Bureau […]

Donald and David’s Relevance to Climate Science

“CRICKET legend Sir Donald Bradman is a useful metaphor for the escalating global row over claims the world’s leading climate agencies have been messing with the weather. 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 […]

Missing Observational Data for Middle Percy Island

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 […]

How do we know that Cyclone Marcia was a Category 5 at landfall?

THE Australian Bureau of Meteorology issued a media release last night (19thFebruary) with the headline “Tropical Cyclone Marcia to reach Category 5 system at landfall”.    This morning there was extensive media reporting of Marcia having reached landfall as a Category 5. But where is the evidence?  And who is asking for it?  Like the Bureau, the […]
