Ohio State Presentation

I’ve posted my Ohio State presentation online – 11 MB. I’ve done a little extra work and integrated the PPT pictures with the script and provided most of the references in a bibliography. There’s quite a lot of material, but I hit my time point (an hour) quite accurately. (A reader compressed this to 1 […]

Ohio State

As Hu McCulloch mentioned, I am speaking tomorrow, Friday May 16, at OSU on “Was 1998 the Warmest Year of the Millennium: What do We Really Know?” The talk will be 2:30-3:48 in Scott Lab 001 (a big lecture hall in the basement of the south end of the east wing). A reception will follow. […]

Mann’s new paper recharacterizing the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation

A guest post by Nic Lewis   Michael Mann has had a paper on the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) accepted by Geophysical Research Letters: “On forced temperature changes, internal variability, and the AMO”. The abstract and access to Supplementary Information is here . Mann has made a preprint of the paper available, here . More […]

Lonnie Thompson’s Legacy

In my last post, I observed that Ellen Mosley-Thompson’s archiving record was even worse than that that of her husband, Lonnie Thompson, whose failure to adequately archive his ice core measurements has long been a subject of criticism at Climate Audit. In particular, I observed that Ellen had archived nothing from the 15 expeditions to […]

Lonnie and Ellen, A Serial Non-Archiving Couple

Recently, Geoffrey Boulton’s report and Nature editorial provided more pious language urging data archiving by hoarding scientists. As I mentioned in my initial comments on Boulton’s editorial, there have been many such pious pronouncements over the years without the slightest impact on, for example, the serial non-archiving couple of Lonnie Thompson and Ellen Mosley-Thompson, who, […]

Schmidt’s Rant on Yamal

Two days ago, NASA blogger Gavin Schmidt posted an extended rant against me at Real Climate, a rant directed in part at my recent post on Yamal. I’ve now looked through his post carefully and, beneath Schmidt’s fulminations, did not find any rebuttal to any points actually made in my post, as I’ll discuss in […]

Thompson Gets New NSF Grant

Lonnie Thompson, senior research scientist at Ohio State University’s Byrd Polar Research Center, and his colleague Paolo Gabrielli, have just been awarded a three-year $588,000 grant from the NSF’s Division of Atmospheric and Geophysical Sciences “to assess the human impact on the chemical characteristics of the glaciers in the Himalaya and the Tibetan Plateau from […]

Mann on Irreproducible Results in Thompson (PNAS 2006)

Michael Mann’s new book, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars, discusses my comment [SMc note – this post is by Hu McCulloch] , “Irreproducible Results in Thompson et al., ‘Abrupt Tropical Climate Change: Past and Present’ (PNAS 2006),” that was published in 2009 in Energy & Environment. My comment pertained to an article by […]

NASA/UAH Atmospheric Science Seminar

I doubt that there are many people who’ve made as many presentations to NAS panels as they have to university seminars in climate departments. Since I’ve done one of each, I presently qualify. (My only invitation to make a presentation to a university climate department was to Georgia Tech in early 2008. I’ve made a […]

McShane and Wyner Discussion

McShane and Wyner, previewed in August, has now been published by Annals of Applied Statistics as a Discussion Paper here with an accompanying editorial by Michael Stein and discussions by 13 different groups (one of which is a short comment by Mc and Mc, with an excellent Rejoinder. BTW using Firefox, I wasn’t able to […]
