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...

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...

If you live Honolulu Hawaii or the surrounding low elevation area’s this is what you can roughly expect to see with impacts of the three features below when it comes to your heating and cooling budget. The above graph shows the situations that occurred during previous phases of all three events such as normal conditions along with EL-Nino and La-Nina. During a normal cycle it is easy to see that the cooling degree days during March were around 355.5 days. During the same month of March...
