According to a panel of government scientists, the fact that average annual temperatures in certain regions of North America did not decline last year does not necessarily mean that global warming is abating. In a report released a few days ahead of President Obama's trip to the U.N. climate-change conference in Copenhagen, researchers attempted to counter arguments from global warming skeptics who say that falling temperatures throughout North America have called into question some of the...

The University of East Anglia announced Thursday it is formally investigating whether scientists at its prestigious Climatic Research Unit falsified data on global warming studies, The Associated Press reported. In late November, emails between some of the world's leading climate scientists were stolen from the university and leaked to the Internet. As a result, skeptics of man-made global warming say the emails are proof that scientists have been conspiring to hide evidence showing that...

A series of controversial e-mails from a British university's climate center were obtained by computer hackers and posted online about two weeks ago and now House Republicans are saying they are evidence of corruption surrounding man-made climate change, The Associated Press reported. Meanwhile, top administration scientists say they found no such sign of corruption and argued that the surrounding controversy doesn't change the fact that the world is warming. Climate change skeptics contend...

Everybody talks about CO2 and other greenhouse gases as causes of global warming and the large climate changes we are currently experiencing. But what about the atmospheric and oceanic oxygen content? Which role does oxygen content play in global warming? This question has become extremely relevant now that Professor Robert Frei from the Department of Geography and Geology at the University of Copenhagen, in collaboration with colleagues from Uruguay, England and the University of Southern...

While the harsh winter pounding many areas of North America and Europe seemingly contradicts the fact that global warming continues unabated, a new survey finds consensus among scientists about the reality of climate change and its likely cause.A group of 3,146 earth scientists surveyed around the world overwhelmingly agree that in the past 200-plus years, mean global temperatures have been rising, and that human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global...

There is no positive proof that what is happening to our weather and atmosphere is more than partially caused by us. When man-made global warming is treated as a fact, it gives all kinds of tools for others to put restrictions on people and injure our economy. Let's do all we can to help our climate and atmosphere, but give us the leeway to make a living, improve our economy and enjoy our freedoms and personal pursuits. T.G.

Scientists at Germany's Kiel University predict the Earth's temperature will stay roughly the same in the coming decade as the planet's natural climate cycle enters a cooling phase.  The researchers developed computer models for their analysis, which suggest the cooling phase will counter warming from greenhouse gas emissions.But thereafter, the researchers expect temperatures to begin rising quickly by about 2020.The forecast centers around the ocean's natural temperature cycles, called...

WASHINGTON -- Earth's tropical belt seems to have expanded a couple hundred miles over the past quarter century, which could mean more arid weather for some already dry subtropical regions, new climate research shows. Geographically, the tropical region is a wide swath around Earth's middle stretching from the Tropic of Cancer, just south of Miami, to the Tropic of Capricorn, which cuts Australia almost in half. It's about one-quarter of the globe and generally thought of as hot, steamy and...

PARIS -- The most authoritative report on climate change is using the strongest wording ever on the source of global warming, saying it is "very likely" caused by humans and already is leading to killer heat waves and stronger hurricanes, delegates who have seen the report said Thursday. Dozens of scientists and bureaucrats from 113 countries are editing the new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in closed-door meetings in Paris. Their report, which must be unanimously...

By Deborah Zabarenko WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The last few decades were the warmest on Earth in the past 400 years, and may well have been warmer than any comparable period since the Middle Ages, U.S. scientists reported on Thursday. In a separate study, climate experts blamed global warming for much of the hurricane-fueling rise in temperatures in the North Atlantic last year, when there were a number of devastating hurricanes, including Katrina. In a new report by the National...
