Are hurricanes getting worse or not?

Some scientists argue that global warming is making hurricanes stronger, or more numerous, or both. Others disagree and there is a great scientific debate over this question.

On the physics side, hurricanes are formed by a combination of factors. Sea surface temperature is just one of these, so it is not certain that simply raising global temperatures a bit will increase hurricanes, either in number or in strength. These other factors include wind, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, among others.

Note too that on the physics side even how to measure the strength of a hurricane is a matter of debate. The simple Category system uses maximum wind speed, but this only occurs in a few small places within a hurricane, and it may be quite temporary. Some scientists argue that total energy is a better measure, but it is not directly observable, while wind speed is.


Moreover, prior to modern times there was no way to measure the wind speed of most hurricanes. This is especially true for hurricanes that do not come to land, which is most of them.

On the data side the problem is that we do not have good historical data. Before the satellite era, which is quite recent, many hurricanes occurred out in the oceans that we never knew of. This is especially true for the vast Pacific Ocean. If we do not know how many hurricanes there used to be there is no way to tell if their number is increasing.

So data on the number of hurricanes is incomplete. Even in the case of known hurricanes we have very little accurate data on their strength. For this reason the debate over hurricanes and global warming is largely a debate over the interpretation of incomplete historical data.

Google Scholar searches the research on scientific questions like this. Here is some of the research since 2018:




Are we coming out of the Little Ice Age?

It is generally agreed that global warming is at least partly natural, not due to humans. The scientific question is how much is natural and this is a matter of great debate. One of the natural causes is "emerging from the Little Ice Age" which happened a few hundred years ago. There is strong evidence for the existence of both a Medieval Warming Period (MWP) and the Little Ice Age (LIA), but there is still room for debate.

On the data side, the problem is that there were no thermometers during most of the time in question, which goes back 1000 years or more. For much of the world there are not even written records, especially in the early centuries.  Even after the thermometer was invented, there were not enough measurements for us to estimate global temperatures until around 1850. Estimates of global temperatures before then are based on indirect evidence, or what are called proxies for temperatures.

So some scientists argue that the Medieval Warming Period (MWP) and The Little Ice Age (LIA) simply did not exist on a global scale. They contend that the evidence for warm and cool periods is merely regional, not global, confined to Europe for example. Other scientists disagree, arguing that the MWP and LIA were truly global.

This is the issue of how much climate changes naturally, or what is called natural variability. If the MWP and LIA are real then climate has varied naturally in relatively recent times. If so then the warming we have seen might be natural. If the MWP and LIA did not exist then it is less likely that the recent warming is natural.

Even if the MWP was global, there is also the issue of how warm it was. That is, is today's warming unique or not? Some scientists argue that the MWP was even warmer than today. Others think it was not nearly as warm as today. Thus, much of the debate over the MWP and LIA is about the interpretation of inconclusive data, especially proxy data. Getting better data is a major research area.

On the physics side, and assuming the MWP and LIA are real, there is the question what difference it makes? That is, is whatever caused the MWP and LIA also causing the recent global warming? Here too scientists are divided. Some argue that our global warming is part of the natural MWP-LIA cycle. Others argue that it is not, that our warming is primarily due to human activity. The problem is that we are not sure what caused the MWP and LIA. This too is a matter of debate, and research.

Here is a search on recent research on the medieval warm period:

Is the sun causing global warming?

Some scientists argue that global warming is primarily due to natural variations in solar activity. Others think that global warming is primarily due to human activity, so there is a great debate over the sun's role in global warming. Given that the sun warms the earth it is easy to see that changes in solar activity might cause global warming, (or global cooling).

The sun is not constant. In fact it changes frequently and in many different ways. The debate is over whether any of these changes affect global temperature and if so how?

On the data side, there has sometimes been a strong correlation between indicators of solar activity, such as sunspots, and estimates of global temperature. This is the primary basis for thinking that changes in solar activity have caused some or all of the global warming. However, sometimes that correlation has not been strong, so the data is inconclusive. Additional data is being collected and this is a big research area.

On the physics side, the problem is that we can measure the changes in direct energy input from the sun, and these changes may not be large enough to explain the estimated global warming. Therefore, scientists are looking for other, indirect ways in which solar activity might change global temperatures.

The sun affects the earth in many ways besides simply providing direct energy, so a number of hypotheses have been proposed. This too is an active research area.

In the meantime, on the data side some of the indicators are changing in such a way that some scientists think that global cooling will now occur, not global warming. This too is now part of the scientific debate.

To see the recent science, try this Google Scholar search: "solar influence on climate change" research since 2018. There are almost 30,000 research papers, which show how active this research question really is. At this point we simply do not understand what role the sun may be playing in global warming.

About the CCDE Video Collections

These are preliminary collections on their way to becoming part of a comprehensive and searchable database of skeptical videos. At this point each collection is for a specific scientist or other expert and more are coming, as we get funded.

Once the database is up and running all of these collections will be jointly searchable by various tags. We hope to include tags such as title, speaker, length, age, topic, as well format (presentation, interview, debate, etc.). There is a great deal of work to be done.

Most of the present descriptive tags are from YouTube. We hope to add more tags, especially the topic or topics covered by each video, as well as the format of the presentation. In many cases it is impossible to tell the topic from the opaque title.

At this time we are only including videos that feature the speaker the collection is based on. We do include videos that have other speakers, especially debates. We are not including videos about the speaker.

We have listed the videos by their length. For many educational uses length is very important, especially classroom use. For example, short videos may be best for introducing skepticism in the face of alarmist teaching, which we call gate breaking. Videos in the 10-20 minute range are often best for class use. Longer videos can be used for student projects. Some of the many videos in the hour range might be used in student theses.

Where several videos have the same length their order of listing is arbitrary, basically the order in which they were listed. One exception to this listing-by-length rule is when there is a series of videos of different lengths. These are listed in order and located based on the length of the first video.

There are some limitations to each collection, including these:
1. Each collection is probably incomplete. We welcome information about additional videos that meet our criteria for collection.

2. The age tag on each video is from the time it was posted on YouTube (until the time we collected it). This posted time may be very different from the time the video was actually made. Some have been posted years after they were made.

3. There are duplications, where different sources have posted the same video with different titles. The age tags for these duplicates can be years apart. We welcome your help in identifying duplicates. However, duplicates have their uses. For example, the total number of views is the sum of the views of the duplicates. One can also see which source gets more views, etc.

Despite these limitations, there is a lot of history here and a huge amount of content. The events videoed go back over ten years. Some issues have changed over time, but others have not. We plan to do some research on this, especially looking for timeless videos.

After many billions of dollars in climate change research, the big issues are far from settled. If anything the scientific debate today is more intense than ever. So we hope that these collections (and ultimately the searchable database) will help people understand the nature of the debate.

Bringing Balance to Climate Science Education - a strategic plan

by David Wojick, Ph.D.


Please donate!

Introduction

The purpose of this project is to help bring some balance to the teaching of climate science, especially in grades K-12, but also in college. There are presently a lot of websites offering one-sided classroom materials teaching the dogma of dangerous human induced climate change. That this science is highly debatable is nowhere to be seen.

Our project will establish a website portal that collects and distributes materials to teach about the climate debate. Once established and given sufficient funding we will also produce new teaching materials. The long term goal is to build a collection that systematically addresses all of the important issues at the appropriate grade levels. Our target audience is not just teachers, but parents, friends of students and the students themselves.

Lack of balance

Both the Federal government and many green advocacy groups maintain websites that distribute climate teaching materials. These materials teach that dangerous human induced climate change is settled science, which is far from true.

For example, the CLEAN website is funded jointly by NOAA, NSF and DOE. CLEAN stands for Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network. In fact "climate literacy" is code for the false belief that humans are causing dangerous climate change. CLEAN says it has over 600 free, ready to use resources suitable for use in secondary and higher education classrooms. They also boast that they are the core of the Teaching Climate part of the Climate.gov website. This is Government bias targeting children.

One of the key principles of CLEAN's version of climate literacy is explained thus: "A great challenge of the 21st century will be to prepare communities to adapt to climate change while reducing human impacts on the climate system (known as mitigation)." CLEAN also says "Because the primary cause of recent global climate change is human, the solutions are also within the human domain."

All of CLEAN's teaching materials are biased and based on this false premise. The reality is that dangerous human influence on climate is completely unproven and the subject of intense scientific debate. That only the scary side is being presented as settled science is a severe lack of balance.


Creating balance in climate science education

The first step toward creating balance in climate education is to provide teaching materials that properly present the scientific debate as it actually is. This is best done with a simple website. We propose a phased approach to this effort. First an implementation phase then, if funding is available, a production phase.

Implementation phase

Initially there are six tasks to be done, to create a useful website, as follows.

1. Call for materials. We will put out a call for teaching materials. We know that some exist already and others may well be created as a result of our call. This will give us a starter set for the website. We will use the existing network of blogs, list servers, twitter feeds, etc., that question the doctrine of dangerous human induced climate change.

2. Collect materials. We will work with authors to make sure that the collected materials are suitable for classroom use, especially non-political.

3. Construction. The education community features simple websites, many of which are constructed by the teachers and their students. Ours too will be very simple, hence inexpensive. We propose to use a database driven, document management format, along the lines of scholarly journals. This means that the website does not have to be changed when new documents are added. There is a home page, some out-links and a search box that produces relevant document lists. There are virtually no maintenance costs.

4. Process collected materials for the website. We will develop content for the website that provides an introduction to the debate, as well as describing each of the available teaching materials. We will also have the customary link list, with links to the numerous websites where the science is debated.

5. Create model materials. We will create a few examples to guide new authors.

6. Promotion. There are numerous channels available for promoting the website at low cost. These range from blogs to the science teacher associations found in many states. It is quite possible that our website will become controversial, which will help to promote awareness of it. The initial call for materials may itself generate controversy.



Production phase

Here the goal is to recruit and guide volunteers who will produce highly targeted teaching materials. In particular, there is a need for simple, yet well designed, lesson plans that teach a specific scientific issue to a specific grade level.

These lesson plans need to be tailored to the state standards, which typically dictate what topics are taught in which grades. DOE's Office of Scientific and Technical Information has funded extensive research by us on this sort of tailoring. These results are available through our STEM Education Center, whose motto is "write it so they can read it."

There are numerous specific scientific issues that need to be taught at different grade levels. Each potential lesson needs to be simple and compact, designed to fit into the mandated curriculum. Moreover, each lesson must stand alone, because teaching time is limited.

Getting around the gatekeepers

We will also develop short, handout types of materials as a way to get around what we call the gatekeepers. Gatekeepers are doctrinaire people who make it hard to get balance into the classroom. It may be the principal, the teacher's supervisor or even the teacher.

Our handouts will be something that a parent or student can bring to class. It is normal for the brighter students to bring supplementary materials to class, especially when the topic is controversial. In the case of climate change, surveys have also shown that parents often become involved. As with the lesson plans, these handouts will be highly focused, nonpolitical, and tailored to a specific grade level. Since they will be online they can easily be emailed as well. Thus the gatekeepers cannot prevent their distribution.

Target audiences

There are three distinct target audiences -- teachers, parents and students. Teachers need lesson plans, which are relatively specialized documents. Students need materials written at their grade level. Parents need information that they can explain to their children or use to confront a gatekeeper. Of course teachers and non-parents can use this information as well. The website will be organized in such a way that each group can find what they need.


It is important to keep in mind that many K-12 science teachers do not have science degrees, nor do most parents. K-12 is not the place to go into the technical details of climate science. Simplicity is the key.
