  1. Virtually certain now that the WeatherBell CFSv2 will finish with an anomaly of +0.52 for February. This would make it the second warmest February ever in the NCEP record, second only to last year.
  2. WeatherBell CFSv2 update, with just under 2/3 of the month in: +0.52, with dailies continuing to increase. That would easily place us at the 2nd warmest February in that record, with only last year beating this year's numbers.
  3. Approaching the halfway point in the month, and global temperatures continue to run at a pretty surprisingly warm level. +0.51 so far for the month of February according to the WeatherBell CFSv2. Dailies have begun to increase once again as well, after dipping down to ~+0.4.
  4. Professor for my programming class recommended to all of the Graduate Students in the class that any references to climate change be removed in Masters and Ph.D theses, as the likelihood for a federal grant would be significantly lower if it wasn't removed.
  5. Starting off February with a +0.59 anomaly on the WeatherBell CFSv2 with increasing daily anomalies.
  6. The more I read and studied about this issue, the more I realized that humans were causing climate change, and that it could be a serious problem.
  7. Neither is no. 40, Liu et al. 2016: " The PDSI from March to June during the period 1680–2012 AD in central Inner Mongolia was reconstructed for the first time using local tree-ring data. The reconstructed series captures severe drought event in the late 1920s that seriously affected most part of northern China. Running variance analyses indicate that the variability of drought increased sharply after 1960, which may implicate anthropogenic related global warming effects on the region.

  8. No. 62, Pedersen et al. 2016 is also not a 'skeptic' paper. http://www.clim-past.net/12/1907/2016/cp-12-1907-2016.pdf
  9. Another such example of a skeptic misinterpreting and distorting conclusions on a paper came from this tweet. If one actually read the paper (Cahill et al. 2016), they clearly note this in the conclusions: Which agrees almost perfectly with Kopp et al. 2016, a paper skeptics were trashing just a few weeks earlier.
  10. Skeptics very, very often misinterpret and distort the conclusions of papers. It happened very frequently, and was one reason why I decided to accept mainstream conclusions on climate science.
  11. Read the paper that Pierre Gosselin said challenged the scientific consensus. It does not. He was extremely careless in his analysis. http://www.the-cryosphere.net/10/477/2016/tc-10-477-2016.pdf
  12. Very surprised at how little cooling has taken place with global temperature anomalies, relatively speaking. CFSv2 will finish off at around +0.41 to +0.42 for the month. Which is higher than last month's value. That would suggest an anomaly of at least +0.85 for January, which is starting the year off very warm for a neutral year.
  13. There are many incorrectly classified papers in the list. It is clear that Pierre Gosselin did not do a very careful job reading through some of these. No. 19 is a paper dealing with how Greenland ice albedo is declining faster than expected. http://www.the-cryosphere.net/10/477/2016/tc-10-477-2016.pdf
  14. WeatherBell CFSv2 is up to +0.30 for January, and is approaching last month's value. Dailies have surged to +0.40, and quickly climbing, so this value may go up even more than what is currently shown.
  15. Loss of -12K yesterday on NSIDC. With an unfavorable pattern for ice growth persisting, I don't expect significant ice growth for at least another couple days.
