      Checkin' back

        Checkin' back on my favorite climate observation sites from last year. The ocean heat content increased from ~17 to ~18 (10^22 Joules). They had to extend the vertical axis from 20 to 25 to accommodate the expected rise until 2020.   Sure enough CO2 broke the 400 ppm ceiling (as I predicted [I admit there wasn't much magic in that]). Note that they also had to extend the vertical axis from 400 to 405. Arctic sea ice: about as... Continue Reading...

It's entirely possible to be both one-sided and accurate.  But in this post, I'm going to look at a case where I say Media Matters was wrong. The False False Balance Kevin Kalhoefer reports on a Media Matters analysis of climate coverage by the major news media.  Coverage of climate change issues... Continue Reading...

Credit: University of Houston It was a great honor for Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon to present on CCNF in the oral session on 'Climate Literacy: Culture of Science and Broader Impacts Done Well I' at the recent American Geophysical Union's annual Fall Meeting. The session was chaired by scientist-educators from the NASA Langley Research Center, Paleontological Research Institution, and a collection of universities and his fellow co-presenters at the session came from the National Science Foundation,...
