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...

Antarctica Was A Balmy 72 Degrees Fahrenheit During The Eocene

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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. Published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the new report revealed that parts of Antarctica were as warm as Coastal California and sea...

More Frequent, Bigger Wildfires Burning Western US
2014-04-18 12:26:10

American Geophysical Union Wildfires across the western United States have been getting bigger and more frequent over the last 30 years – a trend that could continue as climate change causes temperatures to rise and drought to become more severe in the coming decades, according to new research. The number of wildfires over 1,000 acres in size in the region stretching from Nebraska to California increased by a rate of seven fires a year from 1984 to 2011, according to a new study...

A recent paper published by Shaun Lovejoy of McGill University, that claims 99.9% certainty of Anthropogenic Global Warming, is flawed from the outset, according to Friends of Science due to Lovejoy’s omission of known climatic variations and reliance on the discredited “Hockey Stick” graph. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) April 17, 2014 Friends of Science are rejecting the recent paper by Shaun Lovejoy of McGill University of Montreal reported on April 11, 2014 in the online...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Are you trying to unleash an evil scheme at night, but darkness is getting in the way? Why not just BRIGHTEN THE MOON!?!?! (Cue evil laughter) No, that’s not the premise for the next James Bond movie. It’s a new proposal (albeit one that should perhaps not be taken too seriously) by Swedish skin care company Foreo. “Imagine a world where the days last longer and the nights are brighter,” a blog post from the company’s...

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...

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...
