Dr. Spencer is an internationally recognized climatologist who explains things like why we do not know whether man is causing any climate change or not.

Or, is the planet really warming all over?

  • Florida Major Hurricane Strikes: Still No Trend
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-10-11 at 17:32

    Note: The first plot had Michael’s wind speed plotted incorrectly, which has been fixed. I’ve updated a plot of Florida major hurricane strikes since 1900 with Hurricane Michael, and the result is that there is still no trend in either intensity or frequency of strikes over the last 118 years: This is based upon National […]

  • New Record Low Tornado Count as of October 3
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-10-04 at 18:00

    NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center keeps a daily count of cumulative number of tornadoes in the U.S. each year, and recent years have had an unusually low number of tornadoes. As of October 3, the cumulative total for 2018 is 759; the previous lowest number of tornadoes for this date was 761. The SPC has records […]

  • UAH Global Temperature Update for September, 2018: +0.14 deg. C
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-10-02 at 14:31

    Globally, the coolest September in the last 10 years. The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for September, 2018 was +0.14 deg. C, down a little from +0.19 deg. C in August: This was the coolest September in the last 10 years in the global average. Some regional LT departures from the […]

  • My Tucker Carlson Interview Last Night, and Calling Out Bill Nye & James Hansen
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-15 at 15:26

    It didn’t last long, but I was interviewed in one segment on Tucker Carlson’s show of Fox News Channel last evening: Watch the latest video at foxnews.com The subject was Hurricane Florence and whether it could be blamed on President Trump (specifically) or humanity (more generally). You really can’t say much in only a couple […]

  • U.S. Major Landfalling Hurricanes Down 50% Since the 1930s
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-14 at 13:03

    While the wind, storm surge, and freshwater flooding from Category 1 Hurricane Florence will no doubt cause massive damage, we should remember that – historically speaking – major landfalling hurricanes were more frequent in past decades. Contrary to popular perception, the number of major hurricanes making landfall in the U.S. has dropped by an average […]

  • The 36 Costliest U.S. Hurricanes Have Not Increased in Intensity Over Time
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-12 at 14:57

    UPDATE: Includes all 36 most-destructive U.S. hurricanes in the U.S. Govt. report. As part of the 2nd edition of my Kindle e-book Inevitable Disaster: Why Hurricanes Can’t Be Blamed On Global Warming, I include the following graph, based upon data in a January 2018 U.S. Government report. In the top panel we see that the […]

  • My new Kindle book: Global Warming Skepticism for Busy People
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-12 at 14:25

    I sometimes get asked for a concise and accessible summary of my skeptical views on global warming. After a year or more of thinking and writing, my new Kindle book Global Warming Skepticism for Busy People is meant to fill that need. As a bonus, I guarantee it will be easier to understand than Neil […]

  • Hurricane Florence: Nature’s Business as Usual, Not Climate Change
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-10 at 14:20

    A potential new poster child for global warming ignores the lack of trend in major hurricane landfalls in the Carolinas. Although it is still 3-4 days away, rapidly strengthening Hurricane Florence is increasing the threat of a major hurricane landfall somewhere within 120 miles or so of Wilmington, NC. If it reaches that area as […]

  • East Coast Nervous About Major Hurricane Florence
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-07 at 16:35

    We are now at the climatological peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, and Mother Nature is revving into high gear. We could have up to three hurricanes in the Atlantic in the coming days, as strong easterly waves continue to emerge from the west coast of Africa: Florence is of the most immediate concern. While […]

  • UAH Global Temperature Update for August 2018: +0.19 deg. C
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2018-09-01 at 14:46

    The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for August, 2018 was +0.19 deg. C, down from the July value of +0.32 deg. C: Some regional LT departures from the 30-year (1981-2010) average for the last 20 months are: YEAR MO GLOBE NHEM. SHEM. TROPIC USA48 ARCTIC AUST 2017 01 +0.33 +0.32 +0.34 […]
