An Irish Overview of the Latest Climate Science for Policymakers

Help us move forward with your donations made here.



This elegant and graphic filled 36 page whitepaper provides a brief overview of the latest Climate Science, compiled by the Irish Climate Science Forum


Here is their introduction:
"It is a summary compilation of the latest climate research and observations by independent scientists worldwide. The summary does not claim to be scientifically rigorous in every aspect, but hopefully encapsulates the key facts in this rapidlyevolving field. The latest research and observations indicate that while there is an anthropogenic Green‐ House Gas (GHG) influence, it is considerably less than depicted by the IPCC. Much more is also now understood about solar and other natural influences, weather events and many physical observations. Objective analysis of the facts points to prudent mitigation action but does not indicate a looming climate crisis."

Many of the major issues are touched on, from paleoclimate and hot models to floods and global greening. The treatment is data intensive and the numerous graphs are excellent. There are also over 100 references.

This paper is a useful textbook.

Are hurricanes getting worse or not?

Help me build a skeptical climate education portal

To support this project please donate here:
https://www.gofundme.com/climate-change-debate-education

Students and teachers need skeptical science and we plan to deliver it.

There are many on-line sources of alarmist climate change education materials but none for the realistic skeptical view. A recent poll says that many teachers want to teach about the real climate debate, not just the alarmist side. But skeptical teaching materials are scarce, so we propose to build a climate change debate education website, with your help.


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.

Are we coming out of the Little Ice Age?

There are many on-line sources of alarmist climate change education materials but none for the realistic skeptical view. A recent poll says that many teachers want to teach about the real climate debate, not just the alarmist side. But skeptical teaching materials are scarce, so we propose to build a climate change debate education website, with your help.


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.

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.

Google Scholar searches the world of science. Here is a search on "Little Ice Age" research since 2018 to see what the recent research looks like. There is a lot.

Students and teachers need skeptical science and we plan to deliver it.

There are many on-line sources of alarmist climate change education materials but none for the realistic skeptical view. A recent poll says that many teachers want to teach about the real climate debate, not just the alarmist side. But skeptical teaching materials are scarce, so we propose to build a climate change debate education website, with your help.


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.
