Ocean CO2 Measurements and Calculations

Timothy J. Lueker, Andrew G. Dickson, Charles D. Keeling 15 December 1999 Abstract The partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the ocean’s surface waters, precisely expressed as the fugacity (ƒCO2) is determined from dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and total alkalinity (TA) , and the first and second dissociation constants of carbonic acid (K1 and K2) The original measurements of K1 …

Japan’s Canon Institute For Global Studies (CIGS) Presents New Working Paper On Climate Science Data Inconsistencies

Japan’s Canon Institute For Global Studies (CIGS) Presents New Working Paper On Climate Science Data Inconsistencies

No Tricks Zone By P Gosselin on 15. June 2021 Statistical data alterations, huge data gaps and dissenting experts are among the problems plaguing climate science, new Japanese CIGS working paper highlights.  In November 2019, the Canon Institute for Global Studies (CIGS) released a working paper noting that natural factors are also very much at work when it comes to …

Mathematical Proof of the Greenhouse Effect

by Bob Wentworth, Ph.D. (Applied Physics) | June 4, 2021 I am sometimes shocked by the number of climate change skeptics who are certain that the “Greenhouse Effect” (GHE) isn’t real. As a physicist, I’m as certain of the reality of the Greenhouse Effect as I am that 1 + 1 = 2. The GHE depends on physical principles that …

“Major Scientific Breakthrough”…Scientists “Step Closer To Predicting North Atlantic Climate”

No Tricks Zone By P Gosselin on 28. May 2021 A team of scientists believe they’ve made a forecasting breakthrough, suggesting the NAO is in fact highly predictable. Especially Europe’s winter temperatures are modulated by the North Atlantic atmospheric pressure pattern known as the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). As the name implies, it describes the natural fluctuations in the difference …
