- All about ENSO, and lunar tides (Paul Pukite) Historically, ENSO has been explained in terms of winds. But recently — and Dr Paul Pukite has insisted upon this for a long time — the oscillation of ENSO has been explained as a large-scale slosh due to lunar tidal forcing.

Climate Facts from James Hansen and Makiko Sato Ahead of COP26
From the newsletter of 14th October 2021: Left are greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, and right are cumulative greenhouse gas emissions, 1751-2018. Don’t think it’s China. Prior COPs have been characterized by self-delusion so blatant that one of us (JEH) … Continue reading
