A new baseline?

Ed Hawkins and colleagues have a new paper called Estimating changes in global temperature since pre-industrial times, which Ed also discusses in this post. The basic suggestion seems to be that we should probably be defining pre-industrial as the period … Continue reading

Climate sensitivity reconciled?

There’s a really interesting paper by Mark Richardson, Kevin Cowtan, Ed Hawkins, and Martin Stolpe called Reconciled climate response estimates from climate models and the energy budget of Earth. Ed already has post that explains it all very clearly, so … Continue reading

A better comparison

I thought I might briefly highlight the recent Cowtan et al. paper Robust comparison of climate models with observations using blended land air and ocean sea surface temperatures. As Ed Hawkins points out, it’s really an attempt to do an … Continue reading

Models don’t over-estimate warming?

I thought I might write about the new paper by Jochem Marotzke and Piers Forster called Forcing, feedback and internal variability in global temperature trends. It’s already been discussed in a Carbon Brief post called claims that climate models overestimate … Continue reading

Explaining the “pause”

There have been a number of recent posts discussing the supposed “pause” in the rise in global surface temperatures. For example, RealClimate, Tamino, and a guest post on Ed Hawkins’s blog. I thought it only right that I should add … Continue reading
