The Divergence between Surface and Lower Troposphere Global Temperature Datasets and its Implications

I include a graph in my monthly global surface temperature and lower troposphere temperature anomaly updates that compares the average of the global surface land+ocean temperature anomaly products (from GISS, NCEI and UKMO) to the average of the global lower … Continue reading

Climate Models Fail: Global Ocean Heat Content (Based on TOA Energy Imbalance)

OVERVIEW    I recently presented the modeled energy imbalance at the top of the atmosphere (TOA) in the post No Consensus: Earth’s Top of Atmosphere Energy Imbalance in CMIP5-Archived (IPCC AR5) Climate Models.  As you’ll recall, there was a very wide spread … Continue reading
