NASA’s dramatic video of a black-topped sun on the verge of flipping its magnetic polarity has captivated people. Friends of Science say the current low solar sunspot activity, not seen in 200 years, is a pattern that historically preceded global cooling and that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) August 15, 2013 Climate change on earth is significantly affected by the changing 11 year solar magnetic cycles, according to...

The ability of cities to combat the cause of climate change and to adapt to future weather patterns depends on where we live, new research suggests. Scientists at Newcastle University, UK, have revealed a "postcode lottery of preparedness" across the UK based on what each city is doing to not only reduce greenhouse emissions but also adapt to future climate change and extremes of weather such as flooding and drought. Devising a new way of ranking cities - the 'Urban Climate Change...

Climate Change Not Improving NOAA Report
2013-08-07 09:43:37

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Last year was one of the hottest twelve months on record, according to a new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that analyzed global temperatures and climate trends. The US government agency's report was assembled by over 380 scientists from 52 countries. In addition to analyzing temperature data, the annual report also gave the status of other global climate indicators and significant weather...

long term climate feedback loop
2013-08-06 10:24:29

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to University of Hawaii at Manoa oceanographer Richard Zeebe, future warming due to the current burning of fossil fuels will cause the Earth's global temperatures to rise longer than expected. In his report, which was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Zeebe looked at the long-term climate effects of today's human activity thousands of years into the Earth's future. "When we talk about climate...

Oceans May Change Drastically In The Future
2013-08-06 05:37:31

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study, led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, reveals the look of the oceans will change drastically in the future as the coming greenhouse world alters marine food webs and gives certain species advantages over others, if history's closest analog is any indication. Richard Norris, paleobiologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, worked with an international team of scientists to show the ancient...

Climate Change Affecting Marine Species
2013-08-05 04:54:04

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Global warming is forcing marine species to alter their breeding times and shift their geographic distribution towards the poles, according to new research published in this month's edition of the journal Nature Climate Change. The study comes from an ongoing research project, in which researchers from 17 international institutions are conducting a three-year global meta-analysis of the impact of climate change on marine systems....

Climate Change And Its Effects
2013-08-02 04:21:02

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Several new studies have posited new details about the future rate of climate change and the effects global warming might have on the planet. Climatologists from Stanford University and the Carnegie Institution recently published a research review in the journal Science that analyzed 27 different climate models and found temperatures could exceed 3.6 degrees F over much of the Earth from 2046 to 2065 and 7.2 F from 2081 to 2100 if...

Could Planting Trees In The Desert Take The Edge Off Climate Change?
2013-07-31 12:51:58

European Geosciences Union As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change. A group of German scientists has now come up with an environmentally friendly method that they say could do just that. The technique, dubbed carbon farming, consists in planting trees in arid regions on a large scale to capture CO2. They publish their study today in Earth System...

ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A recent report from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) heralded a slight decrease in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2011. However, the drop from 2010 was just 1.6 percent - and emissions since 1990 have actually risen by 8.4 percent. A July report from the Earth Policy Institute found that fossil fuel emissions have risen by 2.6 percent each year since 2010, "hitting an all-time high of 9.7 billion tons of carbon in...

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...
