Non-partisan, independent presentation of climate data. No political ideology, agenda, or financial incentive. Just the data and the trends from published peer-reviewed research, no matter what it shows. We don't cherry pick. Site owner is a Ph.D. geologist who attempts to present the data in as simple a format as possible, so everyone can understand. Choose a subject from the list, or just scroll down. Data is presented in at-a-glance format with minimal analysis. Climate change is much more than just temperatures.

We don't post often, as there is no need to repost the same data over and over. But we do post data from scientists who have boots on the ground and are doing the dirty fieldwork to collect data.

Hurricane Season in the Atlantic

Is the hurricane season in the Atlantic basin getting longer? At look at the trend of early-season and late-season storms over two trend periods, since 1950 and since 1980. The negative trend on the left side of the graphs indicates increasing numbers of early-season storms, while the increasing trend lines on the right side of the graphs indicates more late-season storms.
