Overlapping impacts of climate change such as drought or flooding, declining crop yields or ecosystem damages create hotspots of risk in specific parts of Africa. These are for the first time identified in a study now published by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. The uncertainties in assessing the impacts do not necessarily hamper but can inform development strategies, according to the scientists. Likelihood and potential severity of impacts can be weighed to decide on...

New Evidence That Human Activities Are To Blame For Global Warming
2014-05-06 13:40:37

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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. “Multiple lines of independent evidence confirm that human activities are the primary cause of the global warming of the past 50 years,” the report said. “The burning of coal, oil, and gas, and clearing of forests have increased the concentration of carbon...

Fiction Prepares Us For A Changing World
2014-04-24 07:51:04

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online There is a new genre of science fiction called cli-fi, or climate fiction. It falls under the heading of "normal" science fiction, as well as dystopian fiction. According to Conservation Magazine, the term "cli-fi" was coined by Dan Bloom in 2007, and has since reached "marketable status," with both novels and movies paying homage to the genre. A new study from the University of Copenhagen reveals how climate fiction can serve as a...

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 I of the fall, which states there has been a hiatus in global warming over the past 16 years and ‘low confidence’ of future weather extremes. Canada’s province of Ontario consulted closely with ENGOs on low-carbon initiatives and went from manufacturing heartland to dead weight in the Canadian...

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 law if they are teaching an eco-agenda ideology. Meanwhile the Wall Street Journal recently reported that climate change has conquered campus, and no wonder, since environment, climate change and global warming has formed an integrated curriculum (EIC) across most US states (and much of Canada) for...

Experts Warn Wildlife Response To Climate Change Is Likely Underestimated
2014-04-22 15:13:43

University of Massachusetts at Amherst Analyzing thousands of breeding bird surveys sent in by citizen scientists across the western United States and Canada over 35 years, wildlife researchers report that most of the 40 songbird species they studied shifted either northward or toward higher elevation in response to climate change, but did not necessarily do both. This means that most previous studies of potential climate change impacts on wildlife that looked only at one factor or the...

Urban Heat Island
2013-04-02 15:35:21

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
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...

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...
