A Few Things Ill Considered

Tag archives for paleoclimate

A commenter on the most recent edition of het’s AWOGWN asks an interesting set of questions: How would temperature data have been seen during the last 10,000 years prior to the peak of each of the previous Milankovich cycles? What caused the temperature to reverse course in those cycles and why would we not expect…

Revealing the decline

From greenman3610, Climate Crock of the Week gives a thorough review and debunking of “hide the decline” including the latest on Muller and the BEST project.

Inside an Antarctic Time Machine

Most of us interested in climate science understand the uniqueness and importance of deep ice cores. It is truly a remarkable record of many aspects of past climate including dust, methane, sea level proxies and carbon dioxide. The video below (a YouTubed TED Talk)is a very fascinating look at what it takes to retrieve one.

We Are Just Recovering From the LIA

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: Today’s warming is just a recovery from the Little Ice Age. Answer:

No Past, No Present

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: Climate science can’t even fully explain why the climate did what it did in the past. How can they then claim they know what is going on…

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: In the geological record it is clear that CO2 does not trigger climate changes. Why should it be any different now? Answer:

Global Warming Is Nothing New

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: Global Warming has been going on for the last 20,000 years. Answer:

Vineland Was Full Of Grapes

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: Newfoundland was so warm in the Medieval Warm Period that when the Vikings landed they called it Vineland and brought boatloads of grapes back to Europe. Answer:

Greenland Used to be Green

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: Greenland used to be a lovely hospitable island when the Vikings settled it. It was not until the Little Ice Age that it got so cold they…

This is just one of dozens of responses to common climate change denial arguments, which can all be found at How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic. Objection: If you look back over the last 600 million years you see that there really is not much correlation between temperatures and CO2 levels. Clearly CO2 is…
