• Unsettled Science: Antarctic Climate Confusion

    • Date: 31/05/16
    • The American Interest

    A group of scientists have just published a study that tries to explain why Antarctica isn’t warming as predicted, and its ice isn’t melting as climate models say it should be. As Reuters reports, the researchers identified flows of cold, deep water as the primary reason our models are failing down there: A persistent chill […]

    A new discovery about how clouds form may scale back some of the more dire predictions about temperature increases caused by man-made global warming. That’s because it implies that a key assumption for making such predictions is a bit off. “What this will do is slightly reduce and sharpen the projections for temperature during the […]

    Our planet’s pre-industrial climate may have been cloudier than presently thought, shows CERN’s CLOUD experiment in two papers published today in Nature (link is external). The CLOUD experiment at CERN has shown that before the industrial revolution the atmosphere was much cloudier than scientists had previously thought (Image: Maximillien Brice/CERN) CLOUD shows that organic vapours […]

  • New Study: Global Warming May Boost Arctic Snowfall And Slow Greenland Ice Sheet Decline

    • Date: 25/05/16
    • Reporting Climate Science

    Global warming may increase Arctic snowfall which could slow the shrinkage of the Greenland ice sheet. A history of Arctic snowfall is hidden in ancient leaf waxes found in lake sediments on Greenland. A surprising trove of data yields indications of increased Arctic snowfall in times of warming. Global warming may boost snowfall in the Arctic, according to […]

    The amount of heat-trapping carbon dioxide in the air jumped by the biggest amount on record last month, a rise amplified by El Nino, scientists say. Carbon dioxide levels increased by 4.16 parts per million in April compared to a year earlier, according to readings at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Mauna Loa Observatory […]

    The National Academy of Sciences reaffirmed GMO safety and pointed to the potential for future improvements Genetic engineering could play a role in making crops more resilient to climate change, but more research is still needed to understand the technology’s potential uses, the National Academy of Sciences said yesterday. In a sweeping 400-page report, the […]
