Latest Climate change Stories
Friends of Science are pleased to announce that ticket sales are open for “The ‘Pause’ in Global Warming: Climate Policy Implications” - their 11th Annual Friends of Science Luncheon May
The colors used by legendary artists of the past to depict a sunset could be used to estimate pollution levels in the atmosphere during bygone days, according to research published Tuesday in the open-access journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.
In a head-spinning announcement the UN’s World Meteorological Organization issued statements claiming extreme weather events of the past year were consistent with human-induced climate change,
Using sediments from a remote lake, researchers from Brown University have assembled a 60,000-year record of rainfall in central Indonesia. The analysis reveals important new details about the climate history of a region that wields a substantial influence on the global climate as a whole.
A body of the UN is set to deliver an update on the impacts of climate change, an update that highlights the growing dangers of global warming if no actions are taken to reverse its effects.
Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) to Issue Its Critique of the United Nations’ IPCC Working Groups II and III Reports at National Press Club on April 9
Far beneath the surface of the ocean, deep currents act as conveyer belts, channeling heat, carbon, oxygen and nutrients around the globe.
WASHINGTON, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A ground-breaking Natural Resources Defense Council proposal on how to cut carbon pollution from America's power plants can achieve even greater
Secretary Kerry recently claimed Indonesia was at risk of sea level rise due to global warming and climate change, dismissing the objections of what he calls a “tiny minority of shoddy scientists”;
Several types of plants and animals were able to survive ice ages of the past thanks to the heat and steam produced by volcanoes, according to research appearing in a recent edition of PNAS.
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...
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...
