Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Another study is backing up climate change claims, saying Earth is at the warmest it has been in at least 1,400 years. The study shows that the planet has warmed more between 1971 and 2000 than during any other three-decade interval during the model period. "This paper tells us what we already knew, except in a better, more comprehensive fashion," study co-author Edward Cook, a tree-ring scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth...

A national volunteer project, 4 years in the making, and now published as a peer reviewed scientific study, has discovered that the majority of the US climate monitoring network does not meet technical requirements for long term climate monitoring. Only 1 in 10 NOAA stations were found to meet siting criteria to be free of urbanization encroachment. The study raises questions about the accuracy and certainty of the climate record. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 11, 2011 The discovery that poor...
