Sun's Increasing Brightness Will Dry Out The Earth In A Billion Years
2013-12-17 04:36:50

[ Watch the Video: The Sun Will Evaporate Our Oceans Eventually ] Ranjini Raghunath for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One billion years from now, all the water on Earth could disappear, making it barren like Venus, and the culprit isn’t climate change. It’s the Sun, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. Scientists have previously predicted that, even without climate change, the Earth’s surface would still heat up, because of the Sun’s increasing...

DeWayne Cecil, PhD, on Sharon Kleyne Hour Radio Show, Predicts Global Climate Change to Impact Water Wars, Water Supplies for Drinking and Agriculture, and Human Health (PRWEB) December 11, 2013 The primary impact of global warming and climate change will be on the availability of fresh water, according to former NASA Climatologist DeWayne Cecil. This comes as bad news in a world already experiencing widespread water shortages, water wars, famine and drought. When combined with rapid...

Extreme Summer Weather May Be Caused By Ice Loss In The Arctic
2013-12-09 11:16:06

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The cause of increasingly intense summer heat waves and downpours throughout the US and Europe could be due to thawing Arctic ice and snow, according to new research published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change. In the study, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Rutgers University Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences looked at satellite observations of snow cover and sea-ice extent during the...

As green economies collapse world-wide, Friends of Science question the liability of accountants directing clients ‘toward a green economy’ to stop global warming. Accountants have promoted the theoretical risk of carbon penalties, recommending investments that have lead to spectacular failures like the bankrupt Better Place and ouster of Siemen’s ‘green’ leader Loescher – Friends of Science say the sun drives climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2). Calgary, Alberta, Canada...

Climatologist DeWayne Cecil, PhD reports on climate change, hurricanes and typhoons on the Sharon Kleyne Hour, hosted by Bio Logic Aqua Founder. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) December 05, 2013 There is evidence that highly destructive weather events, such as Hurricane Sandy and the recent Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, are becoming stronger and more frequent. There is also evidence, according to Climatologist DeWayne Cecil, PhD, speaking on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio...

Reversing Climate Change Cannot Be Accomplished Via Geoengineering
2013-12-05 13:59:47

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Geoengineering the climate has been suggested as a way  to help lessen the impact of climate change, but new research published in Earth System Dynamics says this approach would not likely succeed. German researchers say that reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the planet’s surface by geoengineering may not undo climate change. The team used a simple energy balance analysis to explain how the Earth’s water cycle responds...

Sea-Level Rise Will Continue To Fuel Destructive Coastal Flooding
2013-12-05 10:26:23

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Two new literature review studies, published in Nature, reveal changing coastal ocean functions. The first study, "Coastal flooding by tropical cyclones and sea-level rise," reveals that the clamor about whether climate change will cause increasingly destructive tropical storms may be overshadowing a more unrelenting threat to coastal property: sea-level rise. Jonathan D. Woodruff, an assistant professor of sedimentology and...

NASA Releases Images Of Change Climate App
2013-12-04 19:20:27

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online NASA recently announced the release of a new iPad app, called “Images of Change,” that allows users to see how a changing climate and natural disasters are altering the face of the Earth. Using sets of images from around the world with a focus on places that have changed dramatically, the new app shows how a disaster, such as a fire or tsunami, or human activities, such as agriculture or urbanization, have affected the...

PLOS ONE publishes "Assessing Dangerous Climate Change: Required Reductions of Carbon Emissions to Protect Young People, Future Generations and Nature" from James Hansen and colleagues, and announces call for papers on responses to climate change: Research article assesses climate impacts of global warming using ongoing observations and paleoclimate data, and uses Earth's measured energy imbalance and simple representations of the global carbon cycle and temperature to define emission...

Scientific evidence does not support the assumption that extreme weather events like Typhoon Haiyan is caused by global warming or climate change, according to this new report by IPCC expert reviewer Dr. Madhav Khandekar. Friends of Science maintain that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2); in which case most GHG reduction or low-carbon plans are premised on faulty science. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) December 03, 2013 A new report entitled “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...
