Independent review of peer-reviewed climate science by NIPCC, Heartland Institute brings balance to biased, ‘alarmist’ views of United Nations report. Washington,
To help foster informed, non-political dialogue about climate science, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) and the United Nations Foundation have assembled a network of
The recent slowdown in the warming rate of the Northern Hemisphere may be a result of internal variability of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation -- a natural phenomenon related to sea surface temperatures, according to Penn State researchers.
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.
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.
Over 250 million years ago a mysterious event dubbed the Great Dying wiped out 90 percent of all species on Earth. Scientists have debated the culprit behind this mass extinction event for years, and a new study from MIT researchers has concluded that countless, tiny microbes...
Natural fluctuations in the ocean temperature in the North Atlantic have a significant impact on the climate in the northern hemisphere.
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.
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.
Climate change is a substantial and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It might be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions. Climate change is a result of factors that include oceanic processes, biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received buy Earth, volcanic eruptions, and plate tectonics, and human induced alterations...
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...
