New report describes climate change risks for northern Michigan forests In the last 100 years, Michigan has become warmer, with more rain coming through heavy downpours. Climate models suggest that the state will continue to warm and variability in precipitation patterns will increase, which will have consequences for the state’s forests. A new U.S. Forest Service report describes the potential risks and opportunities of climate change for forests in the eastern Upper Peninsula and...

Statistical analysis rules out natural-warming hypothesis with more than 99 percent certainty An analysis of temperature data since 1500 all but rules out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is just a natural fluctuation in the earth's climate, according to a new study by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy. The study, published online April 6 in the journal Climate Dynamics, represents a new approach to the question of whether global warming in the...

The independent Non-Governmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) has released a series of scientific reports that bring a more realistic perspective to the recent crisis statements on climate change say Friends of Science. Dr. Richard Tol, a dissenting voice of the recent UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) panel report is reportedly having his reputation smeared for refusing to sign and speaking out against the ‘sexed-up’ alarmist IPCC Yokahama report,...

Majority of Americans believe meteorologists are just guessing a lot of the time NEW YORK, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's something everyone complains about - it's too hot or it's too cold; it's too snowy/rainy or it's too dry. Weather is the great equalizer and as winter finally (hopefully) makes its way into spring, it's interesting to note that over three-quarters of Americans (77%) say they prefer summer over winter. In looking back at the winter that just came to a close,...

Dr. William B. Innes addresses questions central to the debate in ‘Climate Con?’. Upland, Calif. (PRWEB) April 09, 2014 The scientific debate surrounding climate change is far from settled. In “Climate Con?: History and Science of the Global Warming Scare” (published by AuthorHouse), Dr. William B. Innes addresses questions central to the debate, including who is behind the global warming scare and what are their motivations; what is responsible for past short and long-term...

Permafrost Thawing Could Accelerate Global Warming
2014-04-08 15:41:51

Kathleen Haughney, Florida State University A team of researchers lead by Florida State University have found new evidence that permafrost thawing is releasing large quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere via plants, which could accelerate warming trends. The research is featured in the newest edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “We’ve known for a while now that permafrost is thawing,” said Suzanne Hodgkins, the lead author on the paper...

Slowdown Of Global Warming In Northern Hemisphere
2014-04-08 13:44:55

By A'ndrea Elyse Messer, Penn State The recent slowdown in the warming rate of the Northern Hemisphere may be a result of internal variability of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation -- a natural phenomenon related to sea surface temperatures, according to Penn State researchers. "Some researchers have in the past attributed a portion of Northern Hemispheric warming to a warm phase of the AMO," said Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Meteorology. "The true AMO signal,...

[ Watch the Video: Arid Areas Absorb Unexpectedly Large Amounts Of Carbon ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Arid regions absorb an unexpectedly large amount of atmospheric carbon, according to the results of a 10-year research project in which scientists exposed the Mojave Desert to CO2 levels similar to those expected in 2050. The discovery, which appears in the journal Nature Climate Change, will give experts a better grasp on the earth’s carbon budget....

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...
