    When the NY Times, Washington Post, CNN and other fact-challenged news outlets reported a few months ago that the oceans were warming at a catastrophic rate due to climate change, they all missed a glaring math error in the original science paper. The paper, co-authored by Ralph Keeling of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was published in the science journal Nature. It erroneously claimed that ocean temperatures were skyrocketing at a rate that was 60 percent higher than the IPCC’s known rate of ocean temperature trends. But the paper suffered from a glaring mathematical error that has since been exposed....
  • MAJOR CLIMATE PAPER WITHDRAWN BY NATURE

    A major scientific paper, which claimed to have found rapid warming in the oceans as a result of manmade global warming, has been withdrawn after an amateur climate scientist found major errors in its statistical methodology. The paper, from a team led by Laure Resplandy of Princeton University, had received widespread uncritical publicity in the mainstream media when it was published because of its apparently alarming implications for the planet. However, within days of its publication in October 2018, independent scientist Nic Lewis found several serious flaws.
  • Oops! Nature magazine yanks global-warming study for 'systematic errors'(DOH!)

    "We realized that our reported uncertainties were underestimated owing to our treatment of certain systematic errors as random errors," the magazine said of the Princeton-authored piece. Scientist Nic Lewis, who pointed out the errors shortly after the study was published, said it was "just the latest example of climate scientists letting themselves down by using incorrect statistics." "The climate field needs to get professional statisticians involved up front if it is going to avoid this kind of embarrassment in future," he said.

    A major new climate study in the journal Nature got worldwide media coverage for finding that the oceans warmed dramatically faster than previously thought — but now the researchers have retracted that conclusion after a man in the United Kingdom blogged about flaws he discovered in the paper. Just two weeks after publication, the study authors have revised their paper, and now conclude that the oceans are warming fast -- but at the same rate as other measurements have found. A study co-author took responsibility for the error. “I accept responsibility for these oversights because it was my role to...
  • Scientists Come Clean: Math Error Was Cause of Alarming Global Warming Study Results

    Democrats have gone completely off the rails when it comes to climate change. Even if some of us believe the climate is changing (it’s been changing for millions of years in various directions) that’s not enough for the left. Democrats are only content if you support destroying entire industries, bankrupting companies, raising taxes, wasting taxpayer money, and putting climate change deniers in jail. That’s a position that’s far too radical for most people especially when you consider the fact that there is plenty of evidence suggesting the data we’ve been force fed by the left isn’t all accurate. Here’s the...
  • ‘Alarming’ Study Claiming Global Warming Heating Up Oceans Based on Math Error

    A highly circulated study claiming oceans are warming at a much higher rate due to global warming contains "key errors," forcing researchers to issue a correction. The study published by the journal Nature on Oct. 31 by researchers at Princeton University and UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography claimed the oceans were warming at a rate 60 percent higher than previously thought. However, a mathematical error discovered by independent climate scientist Nic Lewis after he perused the study's first page has led the journal to retract its key finding. The study has a much larger margin of error, making...

    FULL TITLE: 'We Really Muffed The Error Margins': Global Warming Report Rendered Worthless After Scientists Point Out Flaw In Ocean-Warming Survey A major climate change report has been corrected, as two scientists found a glaring error in an ocean-warming report. The original report was alarming; oceans are warming at a rate 60 percent higher than what was first reported by a United Nations panel. The world is ending, folks. It’s The Day After Tomorrow, except that it’s not. The oceans aren’t warning at that rate. In fact, the range is so great that experts can no longer stand by their...
