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...

A new Friends of Science study by research director Ken Gregory shows that the Canadian climate model CanESM2, used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to predict global warming, fails to replicate temperature observations by hundreds of percent – predicting extreme heat when the reality observed is only nominal warming. Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) October 31, 2013 Friends of Science have released a new in-depth study of the predictive climate models of the Canadian...

Seasonal Drying In The Amazon Has Greater Impact Than Thought

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online New research suggests that the southern part of the Amazon Rainforest faces a higher risk of dieback (the gradual dying of plant shoots beginning at the tip) as a result of seasonal drying than reported by climate models used by the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Furthermore, University of Texas at Austin Jackson School of Geosciences professor Rong Fu and her colleagues report that severe loss of...

A panel of 50 scientists from 15 countries says the newest report on climate change from the United Nations is filled with concessions that its past predictions were too extreme and contains “at least 13 misleading or untrue statements and 11 further statements that are phrased in such a way that they mislead readers or misrepresent important aspects of the science.” Chicago,IL (PRWEB) October 16, 2013 Panel of Scientists Says UN Study Retreats, Misleads, and Misinforms A panel of 50...

Climate Change Impacts World Oceans By 2100

[ Watch the Video: Global View On The Health Of Our Oceans ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While previous studies have looked at various aspects of how climate change might impact the world’s oceans, a new study published in the journal PLOS Biology attempts to take a more comprehensive approach to the examining how carbon emissions and warming temperatures will affect the oceans and how humans could feel that impact. Study researchers discovered that man-made...

The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report demonstrates that the organization lacks credibility as the report backtracks on previous climate change claims while making other statements not supported by evidence say Friends of Science. With no global surface warming for 16 years, the IPCC are at a loss to explain this ‘hiatus’; Friends of Science say simply the IPCC’s original premise was wrong - the sun drives climate change, not carbon dioxide (C02). Calgary,...

Calgary geologist Bill Bell published a detailed statement in the Calgary Herald last week, on climate science and the politics associated with the global warming movement, just in advance of the IPCC report. Friends of Science salute citizens like Mr. Bell who stand up for science and offer new members a free CD of original jazz by Canadian great Bob Erlendson, and his band of Juno award-winners in Friends of Science fall membership drive.

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) today released the “Summary for Policymakers” of its fifth and latest assessment of Earth’s climate. The IPCC report comes more than a week after the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) released the more-than-1,000-page "Climate Change Reconsidered II: Physical Science" and its accompanying "Summary for Policymakers." Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 29, 2013 The United...
