  • Antero Ollila: The 2023 Record Temperatures

    Vol 4.1 According to the paradigm of the IPCC global warming is solely due to anthropogenic causes. Record-high temperatures have been measured for the summer months of 2023 and the anthropogenic climate drivers – mainly greenhouse gases – have been named as culprits. Simple analyses reveal that the temperature increase of the year 2023 cannot…

  • Antero Ollila: Carbon Cycle Models and Budget

    Volume 3.5 All carbon cycle models referenced by the IPCC have a common feature: Increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere originates from anthropogenic emissions. It is also generally known that the CO2 concentration observations show that about 44 – 46 % of yearly CO2 emissions seem to have accumulated in the atmosphere; the ocean and biosphere take…

  • Michael Schnell and Hermann Harde: Model-Experiment of the Greenhouse Effect

    Volume 3.5 Radiation exchange of infrared-active gases with their environment is the basis of the atmospheric greenhouse effect (GHE). While the theoretical principles for the energy and heat exchange by infrared radiation were already refined at the end of the penultimate and beginning of the last century, experimental verifications in the laboratory showed quite contradictory results,…

  • Allan Astrup Jensen: Time Trend of Arctic Sea Ice Extent

    SCC Volume 3.4 The NSIDC website, IPCC’s reports and some scientific papers have announced that the Arctic Sea ice extent, when it is lowest in September month, in recent years has declined dramatically, and in few decades the sea ice is supposed to disappear completely in the summer. In that way new and shorter ships…

  • Roy Clark: Time Dependent Energy Transfer

    Volume 3.5 Joseph Fourier discussed the temperature of the earth in two similar memoires (reviews) in 1824 and 1827. An important and long neglected part of this work is his description of the time dependence of the surface energy transfer. In particular, he was able to explain the seasonal time delays or phase shifts between…

  • Raimund Müller: Estimation of e -Time for CO2 and Revelle Factor

    SCC Volume 3.3. This study develops a very simple climate model, based on the standard lagging formula. The mathematical function is derived in detail. The main purpose is to estimate the e-time of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Many models evaluate the inflow to the atmospheric CO2 reservoir by rate equations describing the flow from…

  • Ferenc Miskolczi: Greenhouse Gas Theories and Observed Infrared Properties of the Earth’s Atmosphere

    SCC Volume 3.3. In the last decade fundamental theoretical equations were developed for describing and understanding the global average radiative equilibrium state of the Earth-atmosphere system. It is shown that using the well-established laws of radiation physics the key climate parameters of the planet can be deduced theoretically, from purely astrophysical considerations and some plausible…

  • Antero Ollila: Natural Climate Drivers Dominate in the Current Warming

    SCC Volume 3.3 Anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is the prevailing theory of the IPCC for global warming, in which Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are the major drivers, whereas albedo, aerosols, and clouds have had cooling effects, and natural drivers have an insignificant role (<0.8 %). According to Assessment Report 6 (AR6), these radiative forcings (RF) have…

  • Martin T. Hovland: The Holocene Climate Change Story from Sola part IV

    SCC Volume 3.2. The first humans probably arrived at Sola in SW Norway just after the brutally cold Younger Dryas (YD) period, as the first neolithic tools found there are from around 11,500 years BP. This period is also called the Preboreal period, where the temperature trends upwards for over a thousand years, before suddenly…

  • Martin T. Hovland: The Holocene Climate Change Story from Sola part III

    SCC Volume 3.1. Towards the end of the Weichsel ice age came a period with warmer climate referred to as the Late Glacial Interstadial (c.14,670 to 12,900 years BP), when the great inland ice started to retreat. This retreat was interrupted by a new period of cold climate – The Younger Dryas (YD) (c. 12,900…
