• Climate Models Fail: Climate Warming Experiment Finds Unexpected Results

    Tropical forests store about a third of Earth’s carbon and about two-thirds of its above-ground biomass. Most climate change models predict that as the world warms, all of that biomass will decompose more quickly, which would send a lot more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. But new research presented at the American Geophysical Union’s 2018 […]

    Plants convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis; however, most crops on the planet are plagued by a photosynthetic glitch, and to deal with it, evolved an energy-expensive process called photorespiration that drastically suppresses their yield potential. Researchers from the University of Illinois and U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service report in the journal Science that crops […]

    A catastrophic rise in sea levels is unlikely this century, with ­recent experience falling within the range of natural variability over the past several thousand years, according to a report on peer-­reviewed studies by US climate scientist Judith Curry. Writing in The Australian today, Dr Curry says predictions of a 21st-century sea level rise of more than […]

    Two Indian scientists predict that the next sunspot cycle will not be significant. Their ensemble forecast surprisingly suggests it could even be stronger than the cycle which is just ending Highlights 1. Research predicts space environmental conditions over the next decade would be similar or slightly harsher compared to the last decade ruling out imminent […]
