Unforced variations: Dec 2020

This month’s open thread. Topics might include the record breaking hurricane season, odds for the warmest year horse race (and it’s relevance or not), or indeed anything climate science related.

Thinking, small and big

The point that climate downscaling must pay attention to the law of small numbers is no joke. The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) will become a ‘new’ WCRP with a “soft launch” in 2021. This is quite a big story since it coordinates much of the research and the substance on which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) builds....

I have had...

How to spot “alternative scientists”.
