Australia’s Hottest Day on Record Ever – Deleted

The last few days have been very hot across eastern Australia. The mainstream media have been reporting ‘unprecedented’ conditions. This fits a popular narrative, but its inconsistent with the original historical record. It was very hot in Australia in the late 1800s and the early years of the 1900s, particularly in outback Australia – at […]

This chart compares the homogenised-temperature trend with a trend based on simple statistical averaging - both series are purported to represent climate variability and change for the Northern Colorado Front Range, 1900 to 2015.

Homogenisation Used to Embed Artificial Warming Trend in Colorado Temperature Record

After looking at hundreds of temperature series from different locations across Australia, I’ve come to understand that only cities show the type of warming reported by the IPCC, and other such government-funded institutions. Much of this warming is due to what is known as the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect: bitumen, tall-buildings, air-conditioners, and fewer […]

Wettest September on Record in Murray Darling

FOR over a decade the Bureau of Meteorology, and CSIRO have been predicting on-going drought in the Murray Darling Basin. Hundreds of scientists have been employed –at the expense of tax payers – to run General Simulation Models all predicting the same outcome.  This forecast decline has been blamed on global-warming and has resulted in […]

Understanding the Wild, Wet Weather across Southern Australia

The wild, wet weather across southern Australia this spring is a consequence of an unusually strong temperature gradient, especially evident in the following chart as warm water to the north of Australia (especially in the Timor and Arafura Seas), and the cold waters off the southwest of Australia. Former head of Australia’s National Climate Centre, […]

Transmission Pylons Rather Than Wind Turbines: Collapsed

WHILE the storm that hit South Australia yesterday, Wednesday 28 September, was large and intense, the winds do not appear to have been particularly severe – at least not relative to what we often experience in northern Australia.  For example, a Category 2 cyclone has wind gusts of at least 125 kilometres per hour. According […]

Speaking Truth to Power, and Correcting Brian Cox

There was once a clear distinction between science – that was about reason and evidence – and art that could venture into the make-believe including through the re-interpretation of facts. This line is increasingly blurred in climate science where data is now routinely remodeled to make it more consistent with global warming theory.
