My Essay and eBooks

This is was a sticky post for the top of the main page.  It’s for visitors looking for links to my essay and ebooks about the natural warming of the global oceans.

ESSAY (Free)

The Manmade Global Warming Challenge” is an overview of how sea surface temperature and ocean heat content data point to a natural, not anthropogenic, warming of the global oceans.  Refer to the introduction here.

eBOOKS (Not Free But Inexpensive)

Who Turned on the Heat? is a detailed discussion of El Niño and La Niña events and their natural contribution to the warming of the global oceans. Other factors are also presented during the discussion of the natural warming of ocean heat content outside of the tropics. The contribution of El Niño and La Niña to lower troposphere temperature anomalies and combine land-plus-sea surface temperature anomalies are also presented. Who Turned on the Heat? was introduced in the post “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About El Niño and La Niña”.

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? is my first ebook. It is a collection of model-data comparisons that illustrate how poorly climate models simulate global temperatures since 1900 and sea surface temperature anomalies over the past 30 years.  It was introduced in the blog post here, and the Amazon Kindle edition was introduced here.

    Mr Tisdale, I’ve added some text to my webpage and a contact, who was doing a quick proof queried this bit of text. Does this sound OK or is there a better phrase I could use?

    Nowadays we can fire up our computers and take stock of cyclic patterns such as ENSO (the irregular alternation of El Niño & La Niña), which appears to have a greater correlation to the climate’s variability.

  2. Bob Tisdale says:

    Looks good, grumpydenier. And thanks for the link on your webpage.


  3. grumpydenier says:

    Thank you. I will change it a little as my contact has commented as follows

    <blockquote<I think Bob Tisdale uses ‘variability’ and refuses to use oscillation.

    Hello Bob,

    I’ve just read through your PDF file, “The Manmade Global Warming Challenge.” Since the Earth has warmed and cooled, what mechanism related to ENSO would cause worldwide cooling for timescales on decades to centuries?

  5. Bob Tisdale says:

    Irradiance: Sorry. I can’t answer your question. My concern has always been the last 30 years, for three reasons. (1) the completeness of the sea surface temperature data during the satellite era and (2) that’s the period the IPCC says only greenhouse gases can explain the warming.

    Also the paleoclimatological record is somewhat sketchy.
