  Researchers believe that they have discovered the location of the so-called "missing heat" that could have caused air temperatures to increase as greenhouse gas emissions over the past decade. Using computer simulations, scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology have concluded that this heat might be absorbed in the planet's oceans, at depths of 1,000 feet of more, according to a September 18 NCAR press release....

A University of Alabama climatologist is claiming that temperature-monitoring satellites have revealed "a huge discrepancy" between global warming predictions and the actual levels of heat contained within the atmosphere. Dr. Roy Spencer, identified by AP Science Writer Seth Borenstein as "a prominent climate skeptic," claims that NASA satellite readings between 2000 and 2011 show, in the words of Daily Mail reporter Tamara Cohen, "far smaller temperature rises than six climate models which...

Phil Jones, the United Kingdom scientist who was targeted in the "ClimateGate" affair, now says global warming since 1995 is statistically significant, a year after telling BBC News that post-1995 warming was not significant. He noted that a year worth of data had pushed the trend past the threshold typically used to assess whether trends are in fact "real." Jones said this shows the importance of using longer records for analysis. Scientists generally use a minimum threshold of 95 percent...
