A new study, conducted by scientists at the China National Petroleum Corporation, has found that the same climate forces at work today were also around 1.4 billion years ago – suggesting that current warming observations may be partially due to Earth’s natural climate rhythms.
Friends of Science Society of Calgary is challenging the Triple Pundit online news website to produce evidence to support claims made by Greenpeace about the Friends' climate change billboards
Friends of Science today sent a letter to Charles Bolden, Chief Administrator, asking NASA to revise the consensus claim on the climate change section of NASA’s web-site which the Friends say
A new study carried out by scientists at Dartmouth College is one of the first to rigorously explore climate warming's impact on ‘ecological subsidies,’ or the exchange of nutrients and organisms between ecosystems.
With the abrupt resignation of Rajendra Pachauri, former chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Friends of Science Society say this is an opportune time to overhaul the
Possibly the latest evidence of climate change, a new report from researchers at the University of Hawaii has found that heavy rainfall events are becoming more common on the Big Island of Hawaii.

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...
