Latest Climate sensitivity Stories
A new NASA study shows Earth's climate likely will continue to warm during this century on track with previous estimates, despite the recent slowdown in the rate of global warming.
A study by the University of NSW (UNSW) claims that the Earth’s temperatures will rise 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century. Earlier predictions that were based on cloud cover forecast a smaller increase and were most likely wrong, according to the study.
In a recent report, oceanographer Richard Zeebe examined the long-term climate effects of today's human activity thousands of years into the Earth's future.
While most news that comes out about global warming is typically negative and ominous, thus study has put a slightly more positive twist on the unfolding story of climate change.
Climate scientists are still grappling with one of the main questions of modern times: how high will global temperatures rise if the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide doubles.
When you want to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the Sun, you employ some sort of sun block. But what would you use to protect the entire planet from the Sun?
Scientists have developed important new insight into the sensitivity of global temperature to changes in the Earth’s radiation balance over the last half million years.
According to a new study published this week in Science, the rate of global warming from doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide may be less than previous estimates.
The kinds of increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide taking place today could have a significantly larger effect on global temperatures than previously thought.
- In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
- In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
