George Jarkesy released an article regarding 49 notable astronauts and NASA employees who believe that NASA is shifting towards politics and away from objective scientific observation and fact regarding global warming. Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 25, 2012 George Jarkesy penned an op-ed after welcoming Apollo 7 Astronaut Walt Cunningham on his show on May 9. Their discussion focused on the issue of global warming and NASA´s support of the global warming “hypothesis.” The former...

One popular climate record that shows a slower atmospheric warming trend than other studies contains a data calibration problem, and when the problem is corrected the results fall in line with other records and climate models, according to a new University of Washington study. The finding is important because it helps confirm that models that simulate global warming agree with observations, said Stephen Po-Chedley, a UW graduate student in atmospheric sciences who wrote the paper with...

A Chicago-based, conservative and libertarian think tank has told the Washington Post that they are going to abandon a brief but controversial advertising campaign which claimed that "the most prominent advocates of global warming aren´t scientists. They are murderers, tyrants, and madmen.” According to reporter Jason Samenow's original report, the Heartland Institute, a group which promotes climate skepticism, launched a digital billboard campaign featuring Ted Kaczynski, aka...

Global Warming's Impact On Plants Greater Than Predicted
2012-05-04 04:53:36

Jason Farmer for RedOrbit.com For over two decades, researchers have been conducting experiments that are designed to mimic the effects of rising temperatures on the rates at which plants first begin to leaf and flower each spring. However, a new study has found that that these models are inaccurate, and that the actual impact of global warming on plants may cause the flowering and leafing of plants to occur up to eight times faster than the models predicted. For many years, researchers...

Americans Finally Warming Up To Climate Change
2012-04-19 04:49:07

After experiencing several years of severe weather, including extreme heat, droughts and tornadoes in unusual locations, it seems the public has finally come around to the idea of global warming. A poll released on Wednesday reveals many Americans believe the wild weather of late has been magnified due to global warming. The majority of Americans believe the weather has been getting worse, by a margin of 2 to 1. This survey is the most detailed of its kind, measuring the public´s...

Researcher helps paint the fullest picture yet of how increases in CO2 helped end the ice age Harvard scientists are helping to paint the fullest picture yet of how a handful of factors, particularly world-wide increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide, combined to end the last ice age approximately 20,000 to 10,000 years ago. As described in a paper published April 5 in Nature, researchers compiled ice and sedimentary core samples collected from dozens of locations around the world, and...

Even if zero emissions of greenhouse gases were to be achieved, the world´s temperature would continue to rise by about a quarter of a degree over a decade. That´s a best-case scenario, according to a paper co-written by a Simon Fraser University researcher. New climate change research - Climate response to zeroed emissions of greenhouse gases and aerosols – published in Nature´s online journal, urges the public, governments and industries to wake up to a harsh new...

The instant communications technology that nurtured grassroots revolutions in the Arab world could also help farmers cope with climate change, according to Iowa State University researchers. And so the researchers — Steven Fales, a professor of agronomy; and Gene Takle, director of Iowa State's Climate Science Program, a professor of agronomy and of geological and atmospheric sciences — are organizing a symposium to explore that idea during the annual meeting of the American...

Written from a unique geological perspective, Dr. G Dedrick Robinson's new book, Global Warming-Alarmists, Skeptics & Deniers: A Geoscientist looks at the Science of Climate Change, is a 69,000-word book aimed at non-specialist readers interested in learning the latest scientific findings concerning climate change and how great a danger it actually represents. Abbeville, South Carolina (PRWEB) January 25, 2012 Written from a geological perspective, Dr. Robinson's book emphasizes key...

Researchers Say Decreased Solar Activity Won’t Offset Global Warning
2012-01-24 14:25:46

According to a study published Monday, the slightly weaker activity of the sun expected in the coming 90 years will not be enough to significantly curb rising global temperatures. The research collaboration between the UK´s Meteorological Office and the University of Reading predicts that the energy output of the sun would decrease marginally throughout the 21 century. Unfortunately, they say, the modest 0.14 degrees Fahrenheit fall in global temperatures that this solar weakening is...
