A new federally-mandated report released on Tuesday has provided more evidence supporting the idea that global warming is indeed happening and that human activity is the cause.
American Cooling and Heating today announced the launch of http://www.americancoolingandheating.com/category/global-warming-2/climate-change-global-warming-2
Friends of Science are calling for a retraction of a controversial paper by Stephan Lewandowsky, published in Psychological Science, that claims climate change critics are hoax and conspiracy
Arizona-Based, American Cooling and Heating releases details of the three-stage effect of rural climate change.
A new study from the University of Copenhagen reveals how climate fiction can serve as a mental laboratory, allowing us to simulate the consequences of climate change in our minds and imagine living under other, harsher, conditions.
Friends of Science are challenging statements in the Harvard Business Review (HBR) as misleading to industry and not founded on scientific evidence of the IPCC Physical Sciences Working Group
A recent report in the UK entitled “Climate Control: Brainwashing in Schools” has caused a stir with UK Education Secretary Michael Gove stating publicly that school heads are breaking the
Most previous studies of potential climate change impacts on wildlife that looked only at species shifting northward or to higher elevation, but not both factors, have likely underestimated the effects of environmental warming
Previous studies have shown that Antarctica was a much warmer continent 40 to 50 million years ago and a new report from a team of American, Dutch and Australian researchers has revealed finer details on the milder temperature that blanketed the region at the time.
An urban heat island (UHI) is a metropolitan area that is drastically warmer than its surrounding rural areas because of human activities. The phenomenon was first looked into and described by Luke Howard during the 1810s, although he wasn’t the one to name the phenomenon. The difference in temperature is normally bigger at night as opposed to during the day, and it most obvious when winds are weak. Seasonally, UHI is seen during the summer and the winter. The key cause of the urban heat...
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...
Being a meteorologist for over thirteen years you start to take note of many things in the atmosphere and how they repeat themselves. Our Climate is no different. The definition of climate is stated as: the collective weather data in regards to moisture and temperature for over 30 years for the same location. So to better understand our climate we need to look at this. First, we have average temperatures for given places based on the 30 year average. Some years the temps are warmer or...
The water cycle (or hydrologic cycle) describes the continuous movement of water above, below, and on the planet. Since the water cycle is in fact a "cycle", there is no beginning or end. Water exists in three states: liquid, vapor, and ice. Although the balance of water on our planet is fairly constant, individual water molecules may come and go. The water cycle is driven by the sun. The sun heats the oceans and allows water to evaporate into the air. The sun also heats snow and ice which...
Arctic haze is a phenomenon that occurs in the atmosphere at high latitudes in the Arctic due to air pollution. What distinguishes Arctic haze from haze found elsewhere, is the ability of its chemical ingredients to endure in the atmosphere for a longer period of time compared to other pollutants. Due to limited snowfall, rain, or turbulent air to displace pollutants from the polar air in the spring, Arctic haze can continue for more than a month in the northern atmosphere. Arctic haze was...
