Global Cooling Versus Global Warming
2013-06-17 05:31:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists writing in the journal Nature Geoscience report that a cold snap which occurred 116 million years ago triggered an event in the marine ecosystem known as global cooling. The researchers said they were able to confirm a link between global cooling and a crash in the marine ecosystem during the mid-Cretaceous greenhouse period. This study quantifies the amplitude and duration of the temperature change for the first time. The...

In response to multiple inquiries from media and global warming advocates, Friends of Science issue this release to expose the statistical manipulation evident from the break down of the Cook et al paper. Friends of Science decry the linking of this flawed study with alleged danger from man-made carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) as there has been no global warming in 16 years despite a rise in CO2 levels; Friends of Science say the sun and oceanic oscillations are the main drivers of climate...

Australian scientists have narrowed the predicted range of global warming through groundbreaking new research. Scientists from the University of Melbourne and Victoria University have generated what they say are more reliable projections of global warming estimates at 2100. The paper, led by Dr Roger Bodman from Victoria University with Professors David Karoly and Peter Rayner from the University of Melbourne and published in Nature Climate Change today, found that exceeding 6 degrees...

Detailed analysis shows that only 0.5% (65 of the 12,000 abstracts rated) suggest that humans are responsible for more than 50% of the global warming up to 2001, contrary to the alleged 97% consensus amongst scientists in the Cook et al study. Citing fear mongering and faulty methodology Friends of Science reject the study and President Obama´s tweet as careless incitement of a misinformed and frightened public, when in fact the sun is the main driver of climate change; not human...

Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels reported to have reached 400 ppm at Mauna Loa Observatory sent climate change activists like James Hansen, Al Gore, 350.org and Scientific American into a frenzy but Friends of Science say solar and ocean cycles are the main drivers of climate change, not CO2. With no global warming in 16 years despite a rise in CO2, the role of declining water vapor in upper atmosphere partially negates the ℠heat-trapping´ effect of CO2. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB)...

The Heartland Institute Celebrates Earth Day with the Release of a New Book, "The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism. CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) April 22, 2013 In celebration of Earth Day, The Heartland Institute — a free-market think tank The Economist magazine calls “the world´s most prominent think tank promoting skepticism about man-made climate change” — is sending 100,000 copies of "The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism" by Steve Goreham to educators, business and...

Climate Study Finds Earth Is Warmer Than At Any Time In Past 1,400 Years
2013-04-22 13:01:02

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Another study is backing up climate change claims, saying Earth is at the warmest it has been in at least 1,400 years. The study shows that the planet has warmed more between 1971 and 2000 than during any other three-decade interval during the model period. "This paper tells us what we already knew, except in a better, more comprehensive fashion," study co-author Edward Cook, a tree-ring scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth...

Global Warming May Not Be Quite As Bad As Feared
2013-01-25 13:39:58

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New estimates from a Norwegian research project show that policymakers attempting to contain global warming at less than 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit have an attainable target. While most news that comes out about global warming is typically negative and ominous, this study has put a slightly more positive twist on the unfolding story of climate change. “These results are truly sensational,” said Caroline Leck of Stockholm...

Influence Of Black Carbon On Climate Change Larger Than Previously Estimated
2013-01-15 12:58:27

International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme Reducing diesel engine emissions would reduce warming Black carbon is the second largest man-made contributor to global warming and its influence on climate has been greatly underestimated, according to the first quantitative and comprehensive analysis of this issue. The landmark study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres today says the direct influence of black carbon, or soot, on warming the climate could be about...

Study Shows Our Self Image Doesn't Change When We Look Ahead To The Future
2013-01-04 07:47:12

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Each New Year many of us take a look back at the year before and reflect on how we have changed. While we don´t change much over the course of a year, try looking back ten years. It is safe to say that many of us have changed a lot over the past decade. Now take a look into the future. What will you be like in ten years? It´s likely that most people view themselves the same in a decade as they are now–albeit with a...
