WASHINGTON, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new NASA study shows Earth's climate likely will continue to warm during this century on track with previous estimates, despite the recent slowdown in the rate of global warming. This research hinges on a new and more detailed calculation of the sensitivity of Earth's climate to the factors that cause it to change, such as greenhouse gas emissions. Drew Shindell, a climatologist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New...

Researchers at New Zealand's University of Otago are helping to clear up an enduring mystery regarding the composition of the Earth's atmosphere. They have discovered the microbial soil processes that help ensure that the explosive gas hydrogen remains at trace levels. In recent decades it was found that around four-fifths of all hydrogen released into the air is rapidly removed through soil activity, but exactly what is recycling it, and how, has remained unclear. Now, Otago scientists...

Friends of Science dispute Secretary of State John Kerry’s claims that Indonesia is at risk from human-caused climate change and debunk the notion that carbon is pollution, noting that carbon dioxide drives agricultural productivity and related economic benefits. Based on the last 10 years of evidence, the predicted global warming climate catastrophe has been cancelled; therefore EPA definitions of carbon as well as the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory should be revised accordingly...

[ Watch the Video: Global Warming Cooled By Volcanoes ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory report they have found that volcanic eruptions in the early part of the 21st century have cooled the planet. The total heat content of the ocean, along with global-mean temperatures at the surface of the planet and in the troposphere have shown relatively little warming since 1998. This “slow-down” has been the topic of...

Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...

Terraforming -- Terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping") is the process of modifying a planet, moon or other body to a more habitable atmosphere, temperature or ecology. The term was first used in a science fiction novel, 'Seetee Shock' (1940?) by Jack Williamson, but the actual concept is older than that. An example in fiction is 'First and Last Men' by Olaf Stapledon in which Venus is modified, after a long and destructive war with the original inhabitants, who naturally object to the...
