According to the latest satellite data, the global mean surface temperature has not risen for 18 consecutive years. Global warming has stopped. The following statements from climate science and policy experts at The Heartland Institute – a free-market think tank – may be used for attribution. CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) October 09, 2014 According to satellite data released this month by Remote Sensing Systems (RSS), which provides data used by NASA, NOAA, and the National Science Foundation,...

New research by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory suggests global ocean warming has been underestimated by 24 to 58 percent. The research appears in the October 5 issue of the journal Nature Climate Change. Livermore, California (PRWEB) October 07, 2014 Using satellite observations and a large suite of climate models, Lawrence Livermore scientists have found that long-term ocean warming in the upper 700 meters of Southern Hemisphere oceans has likely been underestimated....

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Water expands as it gets warmer and climatologists have suspected that warming in the deep ocean may add to rising sea levels around the world. However, a new study has found evidence that the deep ocean is not warming measurably. The study researchers, from at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, added that this finding, reported in the journal Nature Climate Change, does not solve the mystery of why global warming...

LONDON, Oct. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbon capture and storage is a process that has become quite popular in recent years. Carbon capture and storage, known commonly as CCS, or even known as carbon capture and sequestration, is a process that captures waste carbon dioxide from sources such as fossil fuel plants and transports it to a carbon storage site (generally underground). The process prevents the release of such large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. CCS is being...

Causes Of California Drought Linked To Human-caused Climate Change

National Science Foundation The atmospheric conditions associated with the unprecedented drought currently afflicting California are "very likely" linked to human-caused climate change, Stanford scientists say. In a new study, a team led by Stanford climate scientist Noah Diffenbaugh used a novel combination of computer simulations and statistical techniques to show that a persistent region of high atmospheric pressure hovering over the Pacific Ocean that diverted storms away from...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS) demonstrates that the devastating effects of the hottest year on record in Australia - 2013 - would not have been possible without the influence of human-caused global warming. The findings, reported in five separate papers in a recent issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS), highlight the significant influence that global...

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- There is a need to think about one's own descendants when thinking about the impacts of climate change, according to a new project designed to help people focus on that aspect of the global challenge. The Your Climate Legacy project stems from the fact that much of the discussion about climate change mentions its impact on "future generations," without focusing on who those people will be and how they will actually live.

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...

Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Honolulu Hawaii, during the month of March. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 48% efficient for the month, producing less than 50% of the month which is due to the large amount of daily cloud cover that is seen on the island during the early morning and...

Being a meteorologist for over thirteen years you start to take note of many things in the atmosphere and how they repeat themselves. Our Climate is no different. The definition of climate is stated as: the collective weather data in regards to moisture and temperature for over 30 years for the same location. So to better understand our climate we need to look at this. First, we have average temperatures for given places based on the 30 year average. Some years the temps are warmer or...

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Austin Texas. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 60% efficient for the month, producing enough solar energy that only 40% of the month would have not had strong incoming radiation. EL-Nino: This phase provided the area with an extended number of...

The month of March provided a huge absence of winter with record breaking temperatures from the Canada border all the way south and eastward across the United States. Half of the United States shattered records which made the month of March, 2012 the warmest ever on record. There are a few states that did not share in the record warmth  along the west coast. They actually had cooler weather. What lead to the extreme warm temperatures during the month of March was a weather pattern built...
