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?

  • Update on Possible Ecoterror Attack at UAH
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-04-26 at 12:12

    Ecoterrorism. Eco-terrorism is defined by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as “the use or threatened use of violence of a criminal nature against people or property by an environmentally oriented, subnational group for environmental-political reasons, or aimed at an audience beyond the target, often of a symbolic nature.” -Wikipedia It appears that at least some […]

  • Shots Fired into the Christy/Spencer Building at UAH
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-04-24 at 17:03

    A total of seven shots were fired into our National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) building here at UAH over the weekend. All bullets hit the 4th floor, which is where John Christy’s office is (my office is in another part of the building). Given that this was Earth Day weekend, with a March […]

  • Time Lapse of Asteroid 2014 JO25
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-04-20 at 12:52

    Despite some clouds, I was able to capture time lapse video of Asteroid 2014 JO25 passing by last night. Nearly 2 hours of time exposure photos are compressed into 23 seconds, from 9:20 p.m. until 11:09 p.m. CDT (watch full-screen, and make sure the highest definition is enabled, 1080p): The asteroid is traveling from near […]

  • Half-mile Wide Asteroid Close Approach on Wednesday
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-04-18 at 13:42

    An asteroid capable of destroying Washington D.C. and New York City at the same time will be making its closest approach to Earth on April 19. At a half-mile wide, it will have over 30,000 times as much mass as the 2013 meteor which exploded over Russia in 2013: The current asteroid, called “2014 JO25“, […]

  • Why United is in Legal Trouble Over Removing a Passenger
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-04-12 at 13:05

    By now, most people have heard of the passenger on a United Express flight that was bloodied and forcibly removed from a flight in Chicago so that airline employees could make it to Louisville to support another flight there. The event has caused a public relations nightmare for United, whose CEO initially defended his employees […]

  • Trump’s Rollback of EPA Overreach: What No One is Talking About
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-03-29 at 13:51

    President Trump’s actions yesterday to rein in the EPA on a number of fronts involves the usual tension between environment and prosperity. Trump has rightly asserted that we can have both a relatively clean environment and prosperity, but this falls on deaf ears in the environmental community. His actions are painted as Republican’s desire to […]

  • The Global Warming Debate Spectrum
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-03-24 at 14:38

    In the debate arena, the public likes simple narratives. If the narrative supports their pre-conceived notions, they like it even better. On technical issues which have major public policy impact, however, the nuances can be very important even if they are not easily explained or grasped. The scientific nuances in the climate change realm are […]

  • The Russians Hacked our Winter Weather
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-03-23 at 13:18

    Now that winter has officially ended, I thought it would be useful to address the central role that Russia played in ending California’s drought, as well as in the unusually warm conditions over the eastern U.S. this past winter. First, let’s address the record California rains and mountain snowpack. While such a wet winter usually […]

  • Brace Yourselves: Snowstorm to Breed Global Warming Hysteria
    by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. on 2017-03-13 at 18:16

    With apologies to Benjamin Franklin, only three things in life are certain: death, taxes, and blaming bad weather on global warming. By mid-week this week, newspaper and website stories will be reporting that climate experts (e.g. Al Gore, Bill Nye) have now blamed the historic snowstorm and unseasonable cold now descending on New England on […]
