    Is that something that bubhub tech can change?

    Don't know - I'll bump it up to him. I was thinking on it today and just thought it wouldn't make sense - ie. that you can't take back your participation once you've participated.

    You could, of course, stop clicking on the thread

    I just feel the 'participated' tab in your app should be more of a 'subscribed' thing so that you have more control of it. I think we've all participated in threads we'd like to avoid and move on from after a while.

    Back to topic?

    At least some Australian scientists are correcting their predictions. This from 2 days ago.
    http://newsroom.melbourne.edu/news/s...-warming-range

    And it looks like the IPCC's next report has been leaked.
    Here are their latest predictions along with the observed temperatures (only up to 2011 though).

    About to fall out of the bottom.

    They pretty much nailed the CO2 levels though.

    IPCC-5-3.jpg

    I wonder if they will change those graphics before the official release. I would hope at least they can include the 2012 figures for completeness.

    From Science Daily on Friday.

    May 31, 2013 — Scientists have long suspected that a flourishing of green foliage around the globe, observed since the early 1980s in satellite data, springs at least in part from the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere. Now, a study of arid regions around the globe finds that a carbon dioxide "fertilization effect" has, indeed, caused a gradual greening from 1982 to 2010.
    Read the rest at http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0531105415.htm

    This should really not come as any surprise, but it is good that the CSIRO has been able to show some quantifiable benefit of CO2 in the atmosphere.
    I hope that the climate models will be updated to include this fertilisation effect and include is as a negative feedback in regard to its predicted climate sensitivity.

    More new science in the world of climate change.

    This peer reviewed paper was published on the 30th May.

    From the abstract:

    For global climate change, in-depth analyses of the observed data clearly show that the solar effect and human-made halogenated gases played the dominant role in Earth’s climate change prior to and after 1970, respectively.

    Remarkably, a statistical analysis gives a nearly zero correlation coefficient (R=0.05) between corrected global surface temperature data by removing the solar effect and CO 2 concentration during 1850-1970. In striking contrast, a nearly perfect linear correlation with coefficients as high as 0.96-0.97 is found between corrected or uncorrected global surface temperature and total amount of stratospheric halogenated gases during 1970-2012. Furthermore, a new theoretical calculation on the greenhouse effect of halogenated of halogenated gases shows that they (mainly CFCs) could alone result in the global surface temperature rise of ~0.6C in 1970-2002. These results provide solid evidence that recent global warming was indeed caused by the greenhouse effect of anthropogenic halogenated gases. Thus, a slow reversal of global temperature to the 1950 value is predicted for coming 5~7 decades.

    I particularly find the prediction of cooling over the next few decades interesting.

    Model failures. 73 of them!

    How can anyone still say that the 'science is settled'? All of the models greatly exaggerate the predicted warming. When the hypothesis doesn't match the observations, the hypothesis is trashed. Well, that is how science is supposed to work. For some reason, this particular field of 'science' operates according to their own rules.
