Dr. William B. Innes addresses questions central to the debate in ‘Climate Con?’. Upland, Calif. (PRWEB) April 09, 2014 The scientific debate surrounding climate change is far from settled. In “Climate Con?: History and Science of the Global Warming Scare” (published by AuthorHouse), Dr. William B. Innes addresses questions central to the debate, including who is behind the global warming scare and what are their motivations; what is responsible for past short and long-term...

Despite climate change, most polluters still pay little or nothing when they release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 'A cost of USD 0.15 per kilo CO2 would be enough to solve the whole climate change problem', says Thomas Sterner, professor of environmental economics at the University of Gothenburg. Sterner is the only Swedish researcher to serve as a coordinating lead author of a new report that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will present next week. The third part of...

Mojave Desert

[ Watch the Video: Arid Areas Absorb Unexpectedly Large Amounts Of Carbon ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Arid regions absorb an unexpectedly large amount of atmospheric carbon, according to the results of a 10-year research project in which scientists exposed the Mojave Desert to CO2 levels similar to those expected in 2050. The discovery, which appears in the journal Nature Climate Change, will give experts a better grasp on the earth’s carbon budget....

Friends of Science are advising the public to keep calm and carry on despite frightening climate predictions coming out of recent Yokahama IPCC Working Group II Climate Change meetings. Sweeping claims of impending doom are not supported by the IPCC Physical Sciences Working Group 1 report, especially the "Key Uncertainties" section where the most frightening scenario of rising seas is certainly downplayed as "there is low confidence in projections... of global mean sea...

Atlantic Ocean Dances With The Sun And Volcanoes

By Christina Troelsen, Aarhus University Natural fluctuations in the ocean temperature in the North Atlantic have a significant impact on the climate in the northern hemisphere. These fluctuations are the result of a complex dance between the forces of nature, but researchers at Aarhus University can now show that solar activity and the impact of volcanic eruptions have led this dance during the last two centuries. Imagine a ballroom in which two dancers apparently keep in time to...

Shareholder Advocates Seek Scenario Planning for a Low Carbon Economy BOSTON and SAN FRANCISCO, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a much-anticipated report to shareholders today on stranded carbon asset risk, ExxonMobil expressed the view that there is limited basis for concern. Shareholder advocates Arjuna Capital and As You Sow- which withdrew a shareholder resolution when ExxonMobil agreed to release the report -- expressed disappointment with aspects of the response,...

Pioneering new research from the University of Exeter could have a major impact on climate and environmental science by drastically transforming the perceived reliability of key observations of precipitation, which includes rain, sleet and snow. The ground breaking study examines the effect that increased aerosol concentrations in the atmosphere, emitted as a result of burning fossil fuels, had on regional temperature and precipitation levels. Scientists from Exeter's Mathematics...

Climate Change And Rising Food Prices: IPCC Report
2014-03-31 09:02:50

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new report from the United Nations-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found that climate change will push food prices higher and increase hunger around the world. Released on Monday in Japan at a meeting of the IPCC in Yokohama, Japan – the new report is the second in a trilogy of climate change reports being released by the international organization of scientists. Each one produced by an IPCC Working...

Ninth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-9) will feature world-famous scientists and writers, precede FreedomFest 2014. Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 27, 2014 Is the theory of man-made global warming still credible? Why do surveys show a majority of Americans and scientists do not believe global warming is man-made and a major problem? Hundreds of the world’s most prominent “skeptics” of the claim that human activity is causing a climate crisis will converge in Las Vegas...

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...

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 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...
