Where Were the "Climate Scientists?"

01-Apr-24
Howard “Cork” Hayden, Prof. Emeritus of Physics, UConn, corkhayden@comcast.net
Abstract: Look up the climate for a certain place you’d like to visit, and you’ll find long-term averages of temperature, rainfall, snowfall, humidity, and the like. Properly, “long-term” implies at least 30 years.

When climatologists talk about “the climate,” they refer to such data averaged all over the planet. Phenomena such as a hot spell in New England, a whole season of hotter weather than average in the Great Plains, or “atmospheric rivers” causing unusual flooding in California are local weather events, not changes in local climate, and certainly not changes in planetary climate.

A Startling Revelation

11-May-24
Howard “Cork” Hayden, Prof. Emeritus of Physics, UConn, corkhayden@comcast.net
Abstract: Kevin Trenberth is now emphasizing the difference between global heating (a process in which the earth absorbs more heat than it emits) and global warming (an ongoing increase in temperature).

The Thumb on the Scale

01-Jan-24
Howard “Cork” Hayden, Prof. Emeritus of Physics, UConn, corkhayden@comcast.net
Abstract: The dinosaurs lived when the average global temperature was 6ºC to 10ºC warmer than it is now, so you might think that there has been some climate change since that time. According to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), you would be wrong.

Screaming About Climate Disaster

17-Feb-24
Howard “Cork” Hayden, Prof. Emeritus of Physics, UConn, corkhayden@comcast.net
Abstract: The Stefan-Boltzmann (S-B) law gives the relationship between temperature and infrared radiation for planetary bodies.  If researchers do not apply it  when making predictions about increasing Earth’s temperature, they are negligent. A science journal refereed or not, that published the model result without that calculation is also negligent. Suffice it to say that the IPCC has never—repeat NEVER—applied the S-B law to their predicted temperatures.

Deviant Vocabulary

11-May-24
Howard “Cork” Hayden, Prof. Emeritus of Physics, UConn, corkhayden@comcast.net
Abstract: Starting with a supposition by Fourier in 1827 that atmospheric gases might trap heat from the sun, scientists in the 19th century experimentally investigated the notion that H2O and CO2 were the important heat-trapping gases.

Other 19th-century measurements were also important. The law of conservation of energy said that the heat absorbed from the sun must equal the amount of heat radiated to space, but how could anything be measured?


Nuclear
Radioactive Waste
Nuclear Notes

23-Mar-24
Howard “Cork” Hayden, Prof. Emeritus of Physics, UConn, corkhayden@comcast.net
Abstract: "Nuclear energy is expensive," goes the mantra, but the main reasons behind the high cost are governmental regulation that is often senseless and lawsuits and delays about "the environment."
