Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the world's largest scientific society, today published a major analysis of the divisive issues at the heart of the debate over global warming and climate change. The article appears at the conclusion of the much-publicized United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, which sought to seal a comprehensive international agreement on dealing with global warming. An embargoed text is available to journalists upon...

A controversial new report claims that climate change is natural and not man-made and lists 100 reasons why to back the theory, The Telegraph UK reported. Some of the reasons listed in the paper claim there is "no scientific proof" that the rising levels of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide (C02) are caused by human activity. The European Foundation, which issued the report, also claims increased levels of C02 are not a problem because it helps to boost crop yields. The report argues that...

UN Challenged to Provide Sound Evidence for Catastrophic Forecasts COPENHAGEN, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ - The International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC - see http://www.climatescienceinternational.org/) today released the names of over 140 leading climate experts from 17 countries who are asking the United Nations and other supporters of this month's Climate Change Conference to produce convincing OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE for their claims of dangerous human-caused global warming (AGW) and other...

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...
