Low-Climate-Sensitivity Theory (Last Climate Skeptic Claim) Gets Debunked… x 3

  This is Part 1 of a 2-Part series on climate sensitivity originally posted on Skeptical Science and reposted with permission. When it comes to global climate change, there are two critical and intertwined, but distinct issues: science, and policy.  We generally focus on the science, because that is what dictates the appropriate policy response, or at least what […]

Correction: 2010 & 2005 Actually Hottest Years on Record According to UK Met Office; World Warming Faster than Thought

  It’s long been known by people who follow climate science that the Met Office underestimates global temperature rise. Why? Because it’s Hadley/CRU (Climatic Research Unit) Temperature dataset (HadCRUT) undersamples the Arctic, and the Arctic is where the most warming is occurring. “Now the Met[eorological] Office (part of the Defence Ministry) has corrected their errors and update […]

Clean Energy Needed (NOW) to Stop Global Warming (.. Natural Gas Not a Good Option)

  A couple days ago, over on sister site CleanTechnica, I reposted a Grist piece on a new study by former Microsoft executive Nathan Myhrvold and climate scientist Ken Caldeira. The post and new study were about what energy transition is needed to address global warming this century. The basic conclusions of it all (also […]

Green News Daily (VIDEO)

Top green news from around the internet (video is followed by photos and short excerpts on the news): Catastrophic Global Warming & Climate Change Underestimated Yep, catastrophic global warming predictions by climate scientists have underestimated probably warming if we don’t curb emissions fast. (Not a surprise that another study has found this — I’ve covered […]

Global Warming News (Abnormally Warm January; Abnormally Cold Europe; Problem with NASA's Blue Marble)

  Other than what we’ve covered already, here are some top global warming stories of the past week or two. January Was Warm! Yes, January was warmer than average. (Surprised?) Michael Lemonick of Climate Central has more: “As it does every month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released U.S. weather stats for the […]

Global Warming & Climate Change News: Record Warmth; How Global Warming Makes Central Europe Cold; Texas Drought Threatening Rice Crop..

Some top global warming and climate change news from the past week (other than what we’ve already covered): 1. Record warmth sweeping through the Eastern U.S. and Midwest. Who knows why? 2. Drought in Texas continues to have a strong effect on Texas agriculture. “Come March 1, if there is less than 850,000 acre-feet of […]

What is Causing Global Warming?

In another wonderful post on global warming, Skeptical Science recently conducted a comprehensive review of scientific studies on the causes of global warming. This follows up on recent posts on whether human or natural factors cause global warming (hint: it’s the former) and “more science on human versus natural causes of global warming.” Check out […]

BEST Study (Climate Science Skeptic Study) Finds Global Warming is Real — Global Warming Deniers Are Pissed (What's New?)

When Richard Muller launched the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature study (BEST) to “independently” evaluate once and for all if global warming was happening or not, many of us followers of climate science were a bit irritated. Why?

THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED repeatedly. Nearly every overarching scientific body and organization connected with the matter has backed up the clear findings, because it is not just 1 or 2 things telling us the world is warming — about a dozen long-researched factors show us very clearly that the world is warming due to human greenhouse gas emissions.

The BEST study was partially funded by some of the biggest global warming deniers on the planet.
Richard Muller was widely known for completely misquoting and misrepresenting both climate scientists and Al Gore on this matter.

Well, even despite the potential bias and flaws, the now-released results of the BEST study reiterate (for the umpteenth time) global warming is happening. The results are nearly identical to the results of so many climate scientists and overarching scientific bodies before it that this really would not be news in a sane world. From the BEST study:
