Three Free Ebooks on Global Warming and Climate Change

They are ebooks in .pdf format:

  • On Global warming and the Illusion of Control – Part 1 presents the basics and illusions behind the hypothesis of global warming and climate change,
  • Who Turned on the Heat? is a comprehensive examination of The processes and long-term global-warming aftereffects of El Niños and La Niñas, which are the dominant weather events on Earth, and
  • Climate Models Fail, as its title suggests is about the poor performance of climate models.

Illustrations from My Short Story DAD, WHY ARE YOU A GLOBAL WARMING DENIER?

UPDATE:  I removed Exhibit 13, which didn’t make it to the book.  Anna must’ve been superstitious.

# # #

I suspect readers of my recently published short story Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier? would like full-sized copies of the illustrations for use in family discussions and blog presentations etc.  So here they are, with the source (Bob Tisdale’s Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier?) noted at the bottom of each one.  You are more than welcome to use them, if, and only if, you do not modify them in any way.

Eeeek! DAD, WHY ARE YOU A GLOBAL WARMING DENIER? Is Number 1 on TWO Amazon Best Seller Lists

Many, many thanks to all those who’ve purchased my short story Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier?

I was shocked to discover it was atop the Amazon Best Sellers Lists in the two categories in which it’s listed (Climatology & Science Environmentalism) today (January 7, 2018) at about 5:30PM. Then again, those aren’t very popular categories.

AND

I doubt it’ll stay there, but….

Again, many thanks to you all.

Bob

Sorry About The Lack of New Posts

I’m on holiday. I’m having too much fun someplace where it’s warm and sunny…and my desktop and laptop with my standard spreadsheets are back home where it’s cold and snowy.   I’m not sure when I’ll be back there, if ever.

Cheers!

December 2016 Global Surface (Land+Ocean) and Lower Troposphere Temperature Anomaly Update – With a Look at the Year-End Annual Results

This post provides updates of the values for the three primary suppliers of global land+ocean surface temperature reconstructions—GISS, HADCRUT4 and NOAA NCEI (formerly NOAA NCDC)—and of the two suppliers of satellite-based lower troposphere temperature composites—RSS and UAH—all through December 2016. It also includes a few model-data comparisons.  Also included is a quick look at the annual data. Continue reading

Mainstream Media Ignores New Study: Present Sea Surface Temperatures “Indistinguishable” From Those During Last Interglacial…

…When Sea Levels Were Roughly 20 to 30 Feet Higher than Today

Science recently published Hoffman, et al. (2017) Regional and global sea-surface temperatures during the last interglaciation.  Not too surprisingly, the study has been ignored by the mainstream media.  Why?  As Science writes in their summary (my boldface): Continue reading

December 2016 Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomaly Update

MONTHLY SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE ANOMALY MAP

The following is a Global map of Reynolds OI.v2 Sea Surface Temperature (SST) anomalies for December 2016. It was downloaded from the KNMI Climate Explorer. The contour range was set to -2.5 to +2.5 deg C and the anomalies are referenced to the WMO-preferred period of 1981-2010 for short-term data.

December 2016 Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies Map

(Global SST Anomaly = +0.26 deg C)

MONTHLY GLOBAL OVERVIEW

The global Sea Surface Temperature anomaly for December 2016 shows very little change since November. A minor downtick in the Northern Hemisphere (-0.03 deg C) was suppressed by no change in the Southern Hemisphere. The only increases (basin-wide) were in the Indian, South Atlantic and Southern Oceans.  Monthly sea surface temperature anomalies for the NINO3.4 now show a weakening from La Niña conditions to ENSO-neutral conditions.
