The Hockey Stick: A New Low in Climate Science

Technical Rating: star
John Daly reviews the hockey stick affair and the attempt by the IPCC to eliminate climate variability from Earth's history. He presents evidence that the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age were real and global in extent.



The IPCC's Contradictory Global Temperature Data

A presentation by Norm Kalmanovitch to the FoS Annual General Meeting, Calgary, June 9, 2010



Hockey Sticks, Principal Components and Spurious Significance

Technical Rating: star star star
Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrich show that the Mann et al 1998, 1999 hockey stick shaped temperature reconstruction using tree ring data was seriously flawed. In spite of hundred of studies that previously indicated a varying climate history, the IPCC tried to use the Mann study to change history. The authors show that Mann's faulty principal component analysis "mines" for hockey stick shapes in the data.



Geophysical Submission to the Alberta Legislature on Global Temperatures

MLA Paul Hinman tabled in the Alberta Legislature on October 25, 2011 scientific information of the lack of influence of CO2 emissions on global temperatures. This submission was prepared by FoS Director Norman Kalmanovitch. The first part shows that the 20th century temperature history is inconsistent with CO2 being the main cause of the warming, and includes portions of letters sent to two Canadian Prime Ministers. The second part shows the failure of predictions by James Hansen and graphs demonstrating no warming since the beginning of 2002.



Recent Cooling of the Upper Ocean

Technical Rating: star star star
This 2006 study by John Lyman et al shows a significant loss of net heat from the upper oceans during the period 2003 to 2005. Oceans have over 1000 times the heat content of the atmosphere, so measurements of the ocean heat content is fundamental to understanding climate change.
