THE TROPICAL SKIES Falsifying climate alarm

By John Christy The Global Warming Policy Foundation GWPF Note 17 When I grew up, science was defined as a method of discovering information. You would make a claim or a hypothesis, and then you would test that claim against independent data. If it failed, you rejected your claim and you started over again. In other words your hypothesis was …

Whoops! Study shows huge basic errors found in CMIP5 climate models

WUWT March 10, 2015 Incoming solar radiation at the Top of the Atmosphere (TOA) It was just yesterday that we highlighted this unrealistic claim from CMIP5 models: Laughable modeling study claims: in the middle of ‘the pause’, ‘climate is starting to change faster’. Now it seems that there is a major flaw in how the CMIP5 models treat incoming solar …

On the incident solar radiation in CMIP5 models

AGU100 Linjiong Zhou, Minghua Zhang, Qing Bao, Yimin Liu First published: 05 March 2015 https://doi.org/10.1002/2015GL063239 Abstract Annual incident solar radiation at the top of atmosphere should be independent of longitudes. However, in many Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5) models, we find that the incident radiation exhibited zonal oscillations, with up to 30 W/m2 of spurious variations. This feature can …
