Where is all the warming?

If we look at what IPCC states there is approximately an 1.5 W/m2 more energy coming into the Earth than is going out. Looking at the climate widget in my blog you will see that the temperature anomaly for January 2010 is 0.72C, which is record high. There have never been any measurements that have shown this high temperature on Earth! This seems logical, we have a huge inflow of energy and this warms the Earth and the atmosphere.

But when you start to look into actual surface measurements. There are many open questions and the uncertainties about the quality of the measurements are troublesome. There are a lot of people out there doing sanity checks of the temperature data and for every day that passes by, new errors are found. In another blog today I found "It is increasingly apparent that we do not even know how much the world has warmed in recent decades, let alone the reason(s) why. It seems to me we are back to square one."

How on earth are we able to have a fruitful discussion about our climate? Do we know anything about the climate at all?

Even more on nuclear power for the future

It seems that not only Bill Gates thinks that it is a great idea with new nuclear power plats for the future in order to get clean and sustainable energy:
Dr. Patrick Moore talk nuclear energy

Thanks to the successful climate meeting in Copenhagen last December, we finally see people starting to discuss innovative possibilities for the future! It's great that the terrible CO2 discussion is coming to an end now that we know that changing the CO2 level a few PPM up-or-down had essentially no effect on the climate. Don't let us spend more time on the past, let us look forward!

Bill Gates doesn't like climate skeptics

This was a very interesting presentation: I have never been a fan of Bill Gates. But this was a good presentation and in some way he actually manage make it a void question whatever and to what extent CO2 is causing global warming. The solution is of course simple, make the alternative to burning fossil fuel so cheap that there is no point in creating CO2 for power.

By the end of the presentation he managed to make fun of climate skeptics. Ok, I can live with that :-)

Climate science is funny?

As a follow-up on my previous blog, I should also state that following all climate blogs is not only interesting, but also sometimes funny. I share these two links from the Swedish blog sphere:
I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I did :-)

Climate science is very interesting!

On one all blogs that I'm following it said some time ago "Pass the popcorn, this might be very interesting". And of course, climate science is very interesting! I have been so extremely busy the last couple of months that I haven't had time to update my own blog.

I think I'm reading about 20 to 30 climate blogs every day. It's both AGW and non-AGW blogs. With all these "gates" that has followed the climategate scandal I can with confidence say that I have never found anything more entertaining since they started to show Dallas on Swedish television back in 1981.

So, please pass the popcorn...this is a good show going on!
