A long musical search

Back in the late 80’s I fell in love with a recording of Latin American harp music. It has taken me more than twenty-five years to discover its identity.  Today I am very happy to say I’ve found it.

Earth Art: more trees

Whether they’re wet (river deltas, tidal channels) or dry (desert, erosion), I never cease to be fascinated by these images. The first two even have ‘leaves’ and are especially beautiful:

Rose tinted temperatures

Here’s an odd thing. Having experienced such cold weather on holiday in July, I went to take a look at the Met Office maps and graphs, and the UK mean temperature map for July 2015 was a bit of a surprise – it was quite rosy and warm-looking.
2015_7_MeanTemp_ActualThe map of anomalies, however, told a different story: Continue reading

How Time Flies…

Is it really more than 3 months since I last posted something?  I can easily believe it.  What excuse would you like me to make? I have many, but thankfully this time I’ve no reason to blame a black dog – far from it. In fact, life is good. Continue reading

Iceberg of disagreement

This was new to me. Not the differing forms of disagreement, but that someone bothered to put it into a simple but convincing hierarchy. Nice!

Unbelieveable adjustments

It is very gratifying to see adjustments of temperature data from surface stations getting some attention again. You could say I started blogging due to that very issue. One of my first posts back in November 2009 was Climate Fast Food (“processed data”).  The comparison between the unadjusted and adjusted data for certain stations was shocking:

“If climate change is weather records homogenised, I’d rather have the raw data, as I’m finding the processed kind rather hard to digest.”

Mists of time, missed

In mid-November NASA released an ultra-high-resolution computer model simulating how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe. It is visually stunning – all those colours and swirls and detail – see for yourself:

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

A quiet year. I hadn’t realised the break in posts was so long, or that gallopingcamel had helped keep things going with quite so many posts.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 24,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
