Dr. Ross McKitrick addressed a packed house in Calgary as he walked the audience through the policy implications of the ongoing “pause” in global warming in which climate models continue to overestimate warming when compared to real world data. Economic models are set to match climate models, so they too overestimate the effect of carbon dioxide emissions; these discrepancies will be resolved in the next few years, he explained. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) May 15, 2014 Friends of...

Abundant Shale Gas Will Not Likely Alter Climate Predictions
2014-05-15 08:27:49

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Climatologists and energy scientists know that replacing higher-emission energy sources with natural gas will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. According to a new study from Duke University, however, even without policies specifically designed to reduce greenhouse gases, abundant shale gas will not cause a substantial change in total emissions. The study was published in a recent issue of Environmental Science and Technology. The...

Southern Ocean Winds Keep Antarctica Cold And Australia Dry
2014-05-12 03:02:49

[ Watch The Video: Southern Ocean Winds Keep Antarctica Cool, Australia Dry ] Australian National University New Australian National University-led research has explained why Antarctica is not warming as much as other continents, and why southern Australia is recording more droughts. Researchers have found rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are strengthening the stormy Southern Ocean winds which deliver rain to southern Australia, but pushing them further south...

Join Arizona-based American Cooling and Heating in this study of the economic consequences associated with combating human-triggered climate change. Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) May 10, 2014 Managing Global Warming, Climate Change and the Economic Fallout After enduring over a decade of year-by-year temperature increases averaging nearly two degrees Fahrenheit, Arizona residents don’t tend to argue the validity of global warming or the reality of undesirable climate change. The heat is here. This...

Friends of Science are questioning why the National Climate Assessment report does not incorporate the Sept. 27, 2013 acknowledgement by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of a 15+ year hiatus in global warming - despite a rise in carbon dioxide - and the lack of references to the Technical Uncertainties of that Working Group III report which state low confidence of weather extremes. Friends of Science point to the cyclical nature of the solar magnetic flux as the main...

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...
