Climate science expert Judith Curry's recent testimony to the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works deconstructed the recent IPCC AR5 report, weighing climate model predictions against the evidence of 'the pause' in global warming. Curry stated the the climate sensitivity of carbon dioxide was much less than thought; meanwhile in the EU and UK Der Spiegel reports that low-carbon climate protection targets are being abandoned due to burdensome costs and damage to...

A comic tweet by Calgary city Counselor Sean Chu referring to climate scientists stuck in Antarctica, and North America in a deep freeze spiraled into a media frenzy overnight as commentators - for and against the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming theory - weighed in from far and wide, including the Huffington Post. Friends of Science say that instead of reviewing the scientific evidence of increased extreme cold snaps, people rely on the 'social proof' of an alleged 97%...

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...

First comprehensive survey shows 60 percent rise over last 30 years of floods, droughts and storms Europe needs to plan for future probabilities of extreme weather. Heat waves, floods and storms do not respect national frontiers, so there is a need for action at both national and EU levels. The IPCC has advised that the frequency of many types of extreme weather events will continue to grow globally in coming years. Now the national science academies of EU Member States bring into focus...

New model calculations by ETH researcher Thomas Frölicher show that global warming may continue after a stoppage of CO 2 emissions. We cannot rule out the possibility that climate change is even greater than previously thought, says the scientist. Many scientists believe that global warming will come to an end if, some day, human succeeds in stopping the release of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. It would, indeed, be hotter on Earth than before industrialization, but...

In contrast, for a scenario with strong emissions reductions, experts expect a sea-level rise of 40-60 centimeters by 2100 and 60-100 centimeters by 2300. The survey was conducted by a team of scientists from the USA and Germany. "While the results for the scenario with climate mitigation suggest a good chance of limiting future sea-level rise to one meter, the high emissions scenario would threaten the survival of some coastal cities and low-lying islands," says Stefan Rahmstorf from the...

Atmospheric Cooling Could Be Result Of Oceanic Heat Absorption
2013-11-01 08:41:05

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The apparent stabilization of atmospheric temperatures over the past decade -- often cited by climate change skeptics as evidence that global warming has slowed down or stopped -- is actually caused by a radical increase in the amount of heat being absorbed by the oceans, according to a new study. Yair Rosenthal, a climate scientist at Rutgers University, and colleagues report that the ocean is now absorbing heat 15 times faster...

call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
