Predicting When Tornadoes Will Strike

Updated: 01/05/2009 - Meteorologists found connections between the sea surface temperature in the tropical Pacific Ocean and the occurrence of tornadoes in unlikely parts of the North American continent. During El Niño events, when the winter sea surface temperature is warmer than usual, tornadoes are more likely to occur in the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico and in central Florida. During La Niña events, when the temperatures are cooler, tornadoes are more likely to occur in southeastern Texas and the upper Midwest

'Global Warming' - Short on Facts, Long on Hype

Posted: 01/01/2009 - The debate over global warming heated up in 2008, with prominent meteorologists, scientists, and environmentalists dissenting from the so-called consensus for “manmade” global warming...John Coleman—the founder of the Weather Channel...AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Joe Bastardi...a coincidence over the centuries of an absence of sunspots correlating with very cold temperatures and a presence of sunspots corresponding to a warm period...

The 'Warm'' Turns

Posted: 01/01/2009 - As we’ve noted, 2008 has been a year of records for cold and snowfall and may indeed be the coldest year of the 21st century thus far. Global thermometers stopped rising after 1998, and have plummeted in the last two years by more than 0.5 degrees Celsius. The 2007-2008 temperature drop was not predicted by global climate models. But it was predictable by a decline in sunspot activity since 2000.

Global Cooling Favored By Quiet Sun Cycle

Posted: 12/31/2008 - 2008 will be coming to a close with yet another spotless days according to the latest solar image. This will bring the total number of sunspotless days this month to 28 and for the year to 266, clearly enough to make 2008, the second least active solar year since 1900.

Snow Burying Radar Sites In Greenland

Posted: 12/31/2008 - A Canadian Icecap emailer noted during the cold war there were two massive radar sites built on the Greenland icecap now abandoned. They are called Dye-2 and Dye-3. When built they sat high above the snow, recent pictures (go to icecap.us to see these pictures) show how the snow is building up around them, proving the snow build-up in recent times. The site is slowly disappearing into the snow. Its outbuildings are no longer visible and drifting snow will consume it completely one day, but that day appears to be decades away.

Chilling Facts About 'Global Warming'

Posted: 12/31/2008 - In February of this year California meteorologist Anthony Watts reported that all four major global temperature tracking outlets had recorded data showing that temperatures have dropped significantly over the last year...large enough to erase nearly all the global warming recorded over the past 100 years. The story went on to say that “some scientists contend the cooling is the result of reduced solar activity - which they say is a larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases.” How many of you have ever heard of Mr. Watts revelation? Not many, I’ll bet.
