By Joshua E. Brown, University of Vermont Fewer days for making maple syrup. Twenty-five years with more snow for skiing. Summer heat stress for dairy cows. These are a few of the forecasts from the Vermont Climate Assessment, the nation's first comprehensive state-level climate assessment, released on June 10. The Vermont report is partnered with the National Climate Assessment, presented by the White House in May. It is expected to be the first of many state-level efforts to...

University of Colorado at Boulder The amount of "hedging" language—words that suggest room for doubt—used by prominent newspapers in articles about climate change has increased over time, according to a new study by the University of Colorado Boulder. The study, published in the journal Environmental Communication, also found that newspapers in the U.S. use more hedging language in climate stories than their counterparts in Spain. "We were surprised to find newspapers increased...

Dr. Ross McKitrick addressed a packed house in Calgary as he walked the audience through the policy implications of the ongoing “pause” in global warming in which climate models continue to overestimate warming when compared to real world data. Economic models are set to match climate models, so they too overestimate the effect of carbon dioxide emissions; these discrepancies will be resolved in the next few years, he explained. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) May 15, 2014 Friends of...

Friends of Science are questioning why the National Climate Assessment report does not incorporate the Sept. 27, 2013 acknowledgement by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of a 15+ year hiatus in global warming - despite a rise in carbon dioxide - and the lack of references to the Technical Uncertainties of that Working Group III report which state low confidence of weather extremes. Friends of Science point to the cyclical nature of the solar magnetic flux as the main...

New Evidence That Human Activities Are To Blame For Global Warming

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new federally-mandated report released on Tuesday has provided more evidence supporting the idea that global warming is indeed happening and that human activity is the cause. “Multiple lines of independent evidence confirm that human activities are the primary cause of the global warming of the past 50 years,” the report said. “The burning of coal, oil, and gas, and clearing of forests have increased the concentration of carbon...

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...

The independent Non-Governmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) has released a series of scientific reports that bring a more realistic perspective to the recent crisis statements on climate change say Friends of Science. Dr. Richard Tol, a dissenting voice of the recent UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) panel report is reportedly having his reputation smeared for refusing to sign and speaking out against the ‘sexed-up’ alarmist IPCC Yokahama report,...

Friends of Science are advising the public to keep calm and carry on despite frightening climate predictions coming out of recent Yokahama IPCC Working Group II Climate Change meetings. Sweeping claims of impending doom are not supported by the IPCC Physical Sciences Working Group 1 report, especially the "Key Uncertainties" section where the most frightening scenario of rising seas is certainly downplayed as "there is low confidence in projections... of global mean sea...
