What’s Up with Our Weather?

On this Monday’s morning weather forecast (11/12/2017) it was stated: “It was very cold yesterday, in fact, the coldest we’ve seen since December 2010 with a maximum of minus 6.2 degrees C recorded in Braemar …” Now we all know that the weather, especially here in Great Britain, is somewhat random. Even with giant super-computers at their disposal, our forecasters can only predict what’s going to happen about 5 days in advance, although lately, they’ve been struggling even with that.

The trouble with Global Warming – Part 2

In 1974 Richard Feynmann described what he called the key to science thus: “In establishing a new physical property; first we guess, then we perform a calculation to see what the implications of the guess are, then we compare the results directly with observations. If the results disagree the guess is wrong. It is as simple as that.” Part 2a. The temperature predictions.
