Last Friday, NASA GISS and NOAA NCDC had a press conference and jointly announced the end-of-year analysis for the 2014 global surface temperature anomaly which, in both analyses, came out top. As you may have noticed, this got much more press attention than their joint announcement in 2013 (which wasn’t a record year). In press […]
Amateurs are the people who do something for the love of it, without getting paid for it. I get paid for doing what I love, so don't get to be called an amateur*.

There is much ado at Tannochbrae Manor, because the Laird has once again disproved global warming. One equation is all it takes! And an article in a new Chinese science journal with some friends, and lo! Take away that inappropriate and misapplied equation, remove the unjustifiable tripling and the climate “crisis” vanishes. You couldn’t make […]
Ocean heat content data to a depth of 2,000 meters, from NOAA.
Wow, was this a bad year for those who deny the reality and the significance of human-induced climate change. Of course, there were the recent flurry of reports that 2014 surface temperatures had hit their hottest values ever recorded. The 2014 record was first called on this blog in December and the final results were reported as well, here. All of this happened in a year that the denialists told us would not be
