Scientists have long been concerned that global warming may push Earth's climate system across a "tipping point," where rapid melting of ice and further warming may become irreversible -- a hotly debated scenario with an unclear picture of what this point of no return may look like.

The impact of the greenhouse gas CO2 on the Earth's temperature is well established by climate models and temperature records over the past 100 years, as well as coupled records of carbon dioxide concentration and temperature throughout Earth history.

Slowdown Of Global Warming In Northern Hemisphere
2014-04-08 13:44:55

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.

North Atlantic Climate Variability Influenced By Solar Activity

A 1,000-year period of pronounced climate variability occurring in Europe could have been the result of changes in the sun’s energy output, according to research published in Sunday’s edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.

Scientists Are Decoding Mechanism For Long-term Climate Fluctuations In The Atlantic
2013-07-25 10:29:13

A German-Russian research team has investigated the role of heat exchange between ocean and atmosphere in long-term climate variability in the Atlantic.

Climate Predictions Could Take Some Clues From The Pliocene Epoch
2013-04-04 06:51:19

Temperature patterns during Earth’s last prolonged global “hot spell” some 5.3 million to 2.6 million years ago differed markedly from those of modern times, suggesting current climate models may need to be adjusted to improve future predictions.

Coral Fossils Say 20th Century El Nino Was Intense But Not Unusual
2013-01-04 12:28:23

Scientists have dramatically expanded the amount of information available on the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), a Pacific Ocean climate cycle that affects weather patterns worldwide, by examining a set of 7,000-year-old coral fossils.

Volcanoes Erupt When Ice Melts

Climate Change
2013-04-01 11:05:27

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...
