    • Harriet Agerholm, The Independent

    A leading cancer charity has challenged the claim modern life is largely responsible for a 40 per cent hike in cancer among young people. A spokesperson from Cancer Research UK said the statistic was misleading because it did not account for population growth. The theory environmental factors, such as eating junk food, were responsible for […]

    Why are cosmic rays intensifying? The main reason is the sun. Researchers have long known that solar activity and cosmic rays have a yin-yang relationship. As solar activity declines, cosmic rays intensify. Lately, solar activity has been very low indeed. Are cosmic rays responding? The answer is “yes.” Spaceweather.com and the students of Earth to […]

    Forecasters are already starting to make predictions for what might be in store as our sun winds down its current sunspot cycle in a few years. Are we in for a very intense cycle of solar activity, or the beginning of a century-long absence of sunspots and a rise in colder climates? Figure showing the […]

  • Mid-19th Century Warming Likely To Be Natural, Not Human-Induced, Says Independent Climate Scientist

    • Date: 31/08/16
    • Global Warming Policy Forum

    London, 31 August: A recent paper published in Nature has received international media attention because of its claim that human-induced CO2 emissions caused global temperatures to start increasing around the 1830s, much earlier than generally accepted. In a critical analysis of the paper by Abram et al. (2016) and published today at the influential Climate […]

    • Kate Hardiman, The College Fix

    ‘We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change’ Three professors co-teaching an online course called “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs recently told their students via email that man-made climate change is not open for debate, and those who think otherwise have no place in […]

  • Global Warming Has Less Impact On Drought Than Previously Expected

    • Date: 31/08/16
    • Science Daily

    A new study from the University of California, Irvine and the University of Washington shows that water conserved by plants under high CO2 conditions compensates for much of the effect of warmer temperatures, retaining more water on land than predicted in commonly used drought assessments. According to the study published this week in the Proceedings […]

  • As Cosmic Rays Intensify, New Study Suggests Sun More Important Than Thought On Earth’s Climate

    • Date: 30/08/16
    • Paul Dorian, Vencore Weather

    For the past year, neutron monitors around the Arctic Circle have sensed an increasing intensity of cosmic rays. This colorized picture of the sun is a mosaic of ultraviolet images from the orbiting TRACE satellite sensitive to light emitted by highly charged iron atoms. Growing in number, the intricate structures visible are the Sun’s hot […]

  • Climate Science Debates Find Their Place In The Sun

    • Date: 28/08/16
    • Robert Matthews, The National

    Man’s nearest star is less active after scientists noticed a plunge in the number of sunspots. As a result, some say, global temperature levels will not rise as much as predicted, while others insist this will do little to slow climate change. ABU DHABI // August may be its usual sweltering self in the UAE, […]
